Having psychic ability goes beyond simply being able to help police find missing persons or know what is going to happen to your twin brother or sister in another state. There are several different psychic abilities that a person with this sixth sense may possess—some may actually possess more than one but have chosen to engage in only one type for their own personal reasons or fulfillment. In addition, some people are more familiar with some of these abilities than others—the average person will not understand all of the terminology, so it is important to make that clear.
The most common of the psychic abilities is clairvoyance or the ability to see things that others cannot. Clairvoyance can take on many forms. The psychic may receive a vision of events or another type of visual impression concerning a particular person. Quite often the person who possesses this ability also has other psychic abilities as well. This might also manifest itself as either dreams or daydreams both of which can be very scary to the person who experiences these visions.
Those who possess the ability to receive impressions that are more on the level of feelings are said to possess clairsentience. The psychics who possess this ability are called empaths because they possess the ability to feel the emotions of others. Clairaudience is on the same level but involves the ability of the psychic to be able to hear things outside of the hearing range of the average person. In many cases these voices come from those who have passed on to the other side or from a spirit guide. It reminds you a little bit of the main character in Dean Koontz’s “Odd Thomas” series except that Thomas both sees and hears the dead. However, you can understand a little bit of how psychics with this ability might perceive things.
While most people have heard widely of Telekinesis, the majority probably think of it as something you might see in a magic show. How often do you really expect to see someone move an object with nothing more than mental concentration? Is it really possible? Uri Geller is a renowned spoon bender and has apparently proven to skeptics that he really can bend metal objects not only from great distances but also those placed in different locations. Some even claim to possess his power temporarily if they are near him or can hear him when he performs.
The last two types of psychic abilities we will discuss are psychometry and remote viewing. Psychometry is a process whereby the psychic is able to pick up energy patterns embedded in physical objects. This is how Tarot readers obtain their readings: they touch the hand of the person and the energy is transferred through their hands thus allowing the Tarot reader to provide an accurate reading. Remote viewing allows the psychic to hear or feel specific locations about which the viewer does not know. Some advanced viewers even claim they are able to interact with the target such as swimming, walking or holding a conversation with the person whether they are dead or alive.
