Do you know that lots of stories, movies and tales have been used to spin gold out of the concept known as extrasensory perception? Have you ever heard of or watched TV series and movies like The Sixth Sense and Medium? Unlike before when tarot card readings and the Ouija boards are seen as taboo or dark practices, people are continually being fascinated about psychic abilities and even games have been developed for kids based on these phenomena. It is also a fact that even though most persons know certain things about ESP, they hardly know a thing about its history.

First, let’s talk about the definition of extrasensory perception. ESP is said to be the ability to get information through means other than the accepted five senses which are touch, smell, sound, taste and sight. It would interest you to know that there are several varied types of extrasensory perception. This also includes the interpretation. How did extrasensory perception come about? This concept dates back to the ancient times, even before renowned parapsychologists started carrying out series of laboratory experiments regarding these phenomena.

An example is ancient China. Then, it was a belief that people are meant to communicate mentally with other people, even their gods, dead loved ones and other supernatural spirits are not left out. In later years, the possibility of extrasensory perception being a reality met lots of criticisms from every angle but the truth remains that in our everyday life, we make use of ESP in most of our actions including the act of divination. The question now becomes, is ESP inborn in people and can it also be proved? A lot of parapsychologists have performed several experiments in order to confirm the veracity of extrasensory perception.

Can you imagine how the results turned out? They were completely amazing and in fact, those who witnessed the experiments were shocked by the high level results achieved. This all points to the fact that extrasensory perception is actually more than what people thought it is. You can imagine a situation where a psychic is able to accurately tell the contents of a sealed envelope even before it is opened. Another instance is the ability of a psychic to carry out the same action that another person is performing in a different location, for example drawing images that are confirmed to be the same with what another given person is also drawing out there.

If you are interest in how to become psychic, it would then interest you to know that extrasensory perception has become very popular and there has been a dramatic increase in the number of those who actually believe in ESP. Even universities are beginning to include Parapsychology as a program and this includes Edinburgh University, Scotland. Some of the most practiced areas of extrasensory perception are clairvoyance, telepathy and precognition. For example, telepathy is defined as the ability to communicate mind to mind, a sort of mental communication. It involves sending and receiving of information from one person to the other through an emotional link.
