is Psychic Power? What does it mean?
Psychic ability is
often referred to as Psychic Power or Psychic Gifts
but these terms can sometimes be misleading or misconstrued.
The word "Power"
tends to suggest a force that may be wielded or used.
The word "Gift"
tends to suggest something that has been bestowed on a fortunate
means just that - that the person is "able" to divine
information "psychically". and there are various ways
that this can be measured or tested
- to a degree.
Everyone has some
but some have become more attuned to using their psychic abilities
and consequently are better at it than others. Most people put
their psychic abilities down to hunches or feminine intuition
- but these are just different words for the same thing.
Children tend to
be much more attuned to their psychic ability than adults. We
are born with an open mind and then gradually close it as we
are told that imaginary friends don't exist or that you couldn't
possibly have known something that hadn't come true yet so you
"must be making it up".
used term by psychics is "channeling" and is an attempt
to describe the process of receiving information from spirit.
It is a word that describes the psychic connection in a way
that people can relate to or visualise. It tends to suggest
a linear conduit however it is probably as inaccurate a term
as all the other descriptions used to define how psychics work.
Much of the problem is that we are using physical world concepts
to describe something that is very etheric in nature.
Just as it is difficult
to define a cube on a flat piece of paper - the eye is given
information that it can interpret as a cube, even though all
of the lines and shapes are two-dimensional - the brain can
interpret the lines in a way that makes sense in three dimensions
and so it is possible to see a cube on a flat piece of paper.
So everything is
based on the perceptions and values of the observer - if you
only perceive "flat" then you will never see a cube.
Similarly "psychic" ability only exists to those who
can perceive it.
