What is extrasensory perception?

Human beings normally perceive or experience anything in this world with the help of five sensory organs. But it has been seen that a person can also see a future event or smell danger which are not possible by our five senses.

For example, eyes let us see what is happening around in real time. But when you get to see that a close friend is in danger whereas the person is living miles away from you. How will you explain it? Are your eyes so powerful? Then how come it came to your vision? This perceiving ability is known as ESP or extra sensory perception.

What is creative visualization?

creative visualization is based on a saying which states that ‘Thoughts create things’. Some people believe that if we can visualize our future in a better way, the same will happen to us in reality. Though it is a very ancient method, but for its success rate, even modern human beings are also developing this particular skill to excel in every point of life. Whenever something good happens in this world, it is the aforetime visualization of someone. Some even just want to exercise their creative skills to create an imaginary vision of an illusory future occurrence.

For example, an athlete, before hitting the track, takes few minutes off and tries to envision the whole performance he is going to deliver. It boosts up his spirit and helps to perform the best. Another example can be an imaginative boy who loves to think about a future event and vision it during his leisure moments. He uses this skill and writes stories also.

Why both are different?

Now, let us come to the point what are the differences between extrasensory perception and creative visualization. According to the parapsychologists and psychoanalysts, ESP is a dormant power of human consciousness. The acquisition of information without your own conscience is completely different from creating a world of your own by exercising your creative skills. The first one cannot be done or modified in accordance to your wishes and expectations. ESP is a matter beyond expectation and awareness whereas the later process includes no intuition or sixth sense.

Moreover, in most cases, what comes out of ESP has been proved to be true later on, but the accuracy rate of creative envisioning is far lower than ESP. If creative envisioning turns to be 100% true every time then the world would have been a different place. One fine morning we would have woken up and visualized that we have become billionaire, the next day the same would have been happened. So, this is not possible either way.

But we can enhance our life to some extent by doing this creative envisioning. At least we can imagine us in a better position. May be the real world has something different to offer, but what’s the harm in it if we live life king size in our dream world?
