It is said that everybody has the potential to perceive things that are not usually perceived by the five senses; it goes to say that everyone has extra sensory perception. However, in some people, this sixth sense is not yet awakened. For people whose sixth sense has already been opened, they are known as psychics.
Psychics can possess different abilities. There are some who can possess the telekinetic power. A person with this ability can make objects move without making physical contact with those objects. There are also psychics who can read other people’s minds. These psychics possess telepathic powers. Another group of psychics is composed of the so-called psychic mediums. Psychic mediums have strong extrasensory perception which enables them to see entities that are not of the physical world. Mediums may have the power to communicate with the spirits of dead people, angels, and demons. Other psychic mediums use tools such as tarot cards, runes, and crystal balls to communicate with spirits and other paranormal entities.
In ancient civilizations, people who have psychic powers were raised to the positions of priests, priestesses, divine seers, or prophets. Many people in the past seek for their guidance before making any important decision. Today, mediums and other psychics are still consulted by many people to guide them in making life-changing decisions. It is even said that some law enforcers employ the service of psychics in solving difficult crimes. In some universities, courses for paranormal and psychic studies are even offered.
