A Cornell University social psychologist, Dr. Bem, conducted a series of studies to conclude that the psychics can not only predict past events, but can see into the future as well. Perhaps psychic powers are real and a psychic can read the future.
Dr. Bem's studies are unique and different from other research conducted on psi. In one of Dr. Bem's studies, he gave college students a list of words. After studying the words for a short time, he gave them a surprise test to see how many words they could remember from the list. A few words were then randomly selected, which the students were asked to retype multiple times for practice. The study showed that the students were able to better remember the words during the surprise test that were chosen during a random practice. Did the students see into the future?
Another study Dr. Bem conducted was done with a photo generator. The computer would flash a photo and the students would have to choose whether or not the image was positive or negative. Quickly, a word would be flashed, whether a positive or negative word, directly after. The study showed that reaction times were slowed down for pictures that were followed with words that were opposite from what could be seen from the photo.
For example, a photo of a cute kitten was shown. Obviously, most would think "positive." The word "menace" was flashed after the photo was revealed. Students were hesitant on what to choose because they were looking into the future and seeing the word that totally changes the outlook on the photo.
Overall, Dr. Bem conducted nine studies and all but one concluded psychic abilities were, indeed, real. Of course, there were some skeptics, including Joachim Krueger, a U.S. psychologist.
"My personal view is that this is ridiculous and can't be true. Going over the methodology and experimental design is the first line of attack. But, frankly, everything seemed to be in good order."Enhance Your Psychic Abilities
Some may wonder how a person can enhance psychic abilities because, according to Spirit Science, everyone is born with psychic abilities. The most common psychic intuitions are clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, and Claircognizance.
What are the differences? Clairvoyance is the ability to clearly see future events, auroras and premonitions. Clairsentience is the ability to derive someone's feelings. Clairaudience is the ability to hear spiritual voices. Claircognizance is the ability to know something without having physical evidence. This may include deja vu or insights.
- Believe in yourself and relax.
- Tune out negative thoughts and energy.
- Do not use your abilities for personal gain.
- Overcome any fears you may have.
- Remain positive and stress-free.
- Practice touching unfamiliar objects and record feelings and thoughts that come to mind.
- Practice remote viewing by thinking of places and events that you plan on visiting in the near future, then record similarities.
- Practice telepathy by reading other people's minds.
Clairvoyance can be practiced to determine if you are, indeed, clairvoyant. Have someone take five items and put them on a table. Do not peek! When all items are placed on the table, carefully view each item, then look away. Try to remember as many details as you can about each item and write them down.Clairsentience can be practiced with psychometry. Psychometry is the practice of touching objects to learn about them. Grab an object, preferably a small, metal object to start. Rub your hands together, then touch the object. Record anything that comes to mind when you touch the object. If nothing comes to mind, ask some simple questions and write down whatever answers you come up with. You can also play hide and seek with an object to find where it is located!
Clairaudience can be developed by simply listening to all sounds around you. It is that simple! Life becomes so hectic at times that people tune out sounds. Tune them in instead of out!
Claircognizance can be enhanced with meditation and journaling. What is journaling? It is the practice of asking a spirit or your higher self questions and writing down whatever comes to mind.
Dr. Bem's conclusion on psychic abilities is great for those seeking use of their sixth sense. Psychic powers are real, and even you can look into the future if you can practice knocking into your sixth sense.
