The Sixth Sense

By Rhiannon Leetham

The Sixth Sense is more than a movie written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Extrasensory perception or ESP refers to sensory information received without the aid of the other five senses, sight, scent, touch, taste or smell.

In many ways ESP is just like the other senses. But it does not have a physical place of origin and it does not depend on the other senses in any way. ESP is a natural ability that includes intuition and meditation to sense information that may not otherwise be obvious.

Although society embraces diversity the psychic is often shunned. Today most cities boast alternative medicine practitioners, various religious establishments and a plethora of eastern inspired activities including mediation groups and Zen master gardening groups. However, the psychic is not often considered a serious enterprise. And since we live in a culture that touts the mantra "seeing is believing" it is of little doubt that skepticism is king when it comes to psychic abilities and belief in the paranormal.

None-the-less psychic abilities are innate in all of us. And just like the talent of a musician perfection comes with practice. In order to cultivate this sense which has been buried under the physical senses you must begin the journey inward.

There are several different types of psychic abilities including clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairempathy, psychometry, psychokinesis, intuition, telepathy, mental influence, psychic healing and auric sight. Each of these special abilities encompasses a different approach to learning information that does not otherwise have a place in the material world.

Clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairempathy allow the user to clearly sense information via sight, hearing or emotion. The clairvoyant can see a scene or mental image within their mind depicting psychic information. Someone utilizing clairaudience often hears information that the physical ears cannot and clairempathy includes the ability to detect the attitude or emotions of others.

Psychometry is the ability to perceive information through touch. Many of us have seen this skill utilized in television. The image of a psychic holding onto a murder weapon and envisioning the crime or touching the hand of someone who a recently suffered the loss of a loved one and seeing that persons face are both examples of psychometry.

Psychokinesis is another form of psychic abilities that has become popular in Hollywood. This skill is includes the ability to move objects using the power of the mind. Intuition, on the other hand, is a more common psychic ability that includes the well known "gut feeling." Intuition is the direct perception of information or ideas.

Telepathy and mental influence are more advanced types of psychic abilities that include mind reading and the ability to influence the minds of others. Psychic healing allows its user to treat and cure illnesses by generating healing energy and transferring it to the patient.

Auric sight is a less well known psychic ability that allows its user to see the aura of another person. The aura is an energy field that radiates from people. The colors and vibrations of an aura tell information concerning that person's health and emotions.
