The general assumption with psychic abilities seems to be, you have them or you don't. Many stories are told about these remarkable abilities of certain 'psychic' human beings that ‘somehow’ know and see extraordinary things, leaving the rest of us wondering why they can and we can't
Of course there are always people that pretend to be psychic to have their way with credulous believers and their money. However, these individuals should not be the cause for anyone to dismiss the existence of such abilities, certainly not in this time and age where research into such abilities is growing and the evidence of their existence is unmistakable.
Every once in a while, you get the feeling that the phone is going to ring... and it does. Or you know who it is that is calling... and you are right. A song is playing in your head; you turn on the radio, and there it is... the same song. You are overwhelmed, somehow, with the feeling that a close friend or relative is in trouble or needs your help at that moment... and you soon learn that is actually the case.
Are these examples of mere coincidence? Or is there something more profound taking place? Are we, in fact, tapping in to what many researchers believe is a shared consciousness - or superconsciousness - that connects all people... perhaps all living things? These are no longer just "New Age" concepts, but are subjects of serious speculation and research by a growing number of mainstream scientists in the fields of quantum theory, psychology and other disciplines. The idea that extrasensory perception (ESP) and related psi abilities are quite real (if difficult to measure) phenomena is gaining respectability.
Extrasensory perception (ESP) means that the human being is capable of knowing information that has not been processed through the five senses: seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing or feeling. Examples include the ability to know someone’s thoughts (mind reading) and knowing information that has not been revealed to the senses (remote viewing). Remote viewing can apply to an object that is locked away somewhere, but could also be the knowledge of what went on in a certain situation in the past or the future.
So, knowing that ESP is the access to information not processed through the five senses, then the question arises: 'how is this information processed?' The answer is the brain. Ultimately the brain is capable of processing information that didn't come from the five senses. In fact it is continuously processing information, most of which we are unaware of. While our brain is processing 400 billion bits of information every second, we are only aware of 2000 of these bits of information.
If, then, psychic abilities are simply the ability of the brain to process certain information, then it is obvious that we all have the ability for ESP, because we all have the same brain structure. Perhaps, then, it is not so much an issue of ‘you have it or you don't,’ but a question of how to become aware of the information that is continuously being processed by the brain. In other words, how do we tune into the information we already have, but are currently unaware of?
HOW TO DEVELOP 'PSYCHIC' ABILITIES
Now that it is clear that the brain processes large amounts of information, it is more a matter of HOW DO WE ACCESS THIS INFORMATION? That some people seem to have a greater 'psychic' ability than others is simply because they use their brain differently, and since we all have the same brain, we are all capable of using it in such a way that we can access information that is nowadays called psychic. Knowing this, is knowing that 'psychic abilities' can be developed. The training that is offered at the Ramtha School of Enlightenment, is very much proof of this. People from all walks of life learn to develop remote viewing, sending and receiving, seeing through cards and moving things with their mind, among many other disciplines. The ancient wisdom that is taught reveals that all these abilities are inate in all of us in our true nature of creative beings that can access any moment in time and space. Check out the website that now also features remarkable students and their abilities in videoclips.
Also the army has picked up the importance of utelizing the human potential beyond the 5 senses and ran for decades a classified 'remote view group' that were trained in accessing with their brain highly sensitive situation and give insight into locations of missing things and people. One among many of these trainees have started their own Remote Viewing school and created DVD's with courses on them. We can recommend the 4 DVD course conducted by Major Ed Dames, that takes you through the protocol that was developed by the military, based on the behavior of so-called 'natural psychics'. Major Ed Dames, however states that he rather works with trained psychics that with 'natural' psychics, since the awareness between fact and fiction seems to be at a higher level with the trained psychics.
SCIENCE AND 'PSYCHIC' ABILITIES
THE PRINCETON PEAR LAB AND OTHER LABORATORIES HAVE CONDUCTED LARGE SCALE STATISTICAL STUDIES OF ESP, REMOTE VIEWING AND PSYCHOKINESIS (PK OR MIND OVER MATTER). THEY FIND HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT EVIDENCE FOR REALITY OF THESE PHENOMENA. ODDS AGAINST CHANCE ARE MILLIONS OR BILLIONS TO ONE.
Within the scientific community there is still a taboo on the subject, however this is not based on any hard facts or even personal belief systems. Listen to this scientist Dean Radin, who has spend 20 years of research on ESP, addressing the TABOO on 'psychic abilities' between scientists:
