You mean Nina Kulagina, and what facts can you provide to support your case that she was shown to have genuine abilities? As for "the chinese dude"...short on info there. Understanding something is knowledge, simply believing something because you read it somewhere or watched it on youtube isn't. Please.

You may well be psychic.
We could always run a test.
Focus on next weeks lotto numbers.
U2U them to me. (don't tell anyone else, just me ok. umm so we can maintain the test quality)
I won't tell anyone else the numbers either.
I will monitor the results and see how I go, umm, I mean, correction, how We go.
I really hope you are psychic.

p.s. remember, U2U me next weeks winning lottery numbers and don't tell anyone, O.K.

I'm glad you posted this! Having abilities can certainly be something that needs to be discussed - WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE! You are likely not going to find an empathic audience here on ATS.

I have been psychic my whole life. My wife, who absolutely did NOT believe in anything psychic when we got together, now knows it as part of daily life (through my voiced experiences which she witnesses first hand).

It's somewhat true what the sensitive said that once you start you "can't" go back. You can somewhat but it's like tuning a radio off that you turned on and it takes a while to get to know how to do that.

A Near Death Experience [NDE] generally opens people to higher connections and greater empathy and love. The fact that the sensitive you mentioned recognized your grandma is not ~that~ unusual. I personally know a handful of psychics, including myself, who have that ability.

I'd recommend starting out slow with one simple excersize:
Try to keep your thoughts from wandering and only think of counting your breaths. It sounds simple but you will likely not even get to "three" before your mind wanders. This can be a VERY efficascious means of quieting your mind; when doing so your psychic abilities will naturally start coming stronger. If you're a visual person you can also visualize the numbers as you count.

I'd also recommend finding a different site for this specific interest [hope that's ok with ATS rules. ATS rocks! We all know that].

Good luck!

Just because you can't see, touch, taste, hear or smell something, doesn't mean it isn't there.

Well how do you know I wasn't around 150 years ago as you weren't there to see, touch, taste, hear or smell me?

Using facts to establish the truth doesn't seem a bad way to prove or disprove something, it's being open minded and reaching a conclusion not based on emotion or imagination.

So as for dismissing x-rays, if there are facts that can be put to the test, repeated and verified then I don't quite see why you would think I would dismiss it. This has never been done with any psychic/supernatural ability. Ever. Nothing beyond statistical probability, chance, trickery etc. So therefore I reach a conclusion that they do not exist.

Not unreasonable is it really?

You embrace the possibility of time travel or eternal youth, but question phycics, or so your post would seem, a slight oximoron, or was it just for the sake of an argument?

I can't prove it either, but let's see your thesis disproving it.

Don't pay any attention to the "head-in-the-sand-I-have-never-experienced-it-so-it-can't-exist-and-I-should-know.." types. There are also those that will believe in God, and all the miracles in the bible, but can't accept when anyone else but Jesus can do anything paranormal or odd. It's like Christianity has the monopoly on all things magical.

This is about you, and your experiences. Try to shake off all the social/religious norms and trust yourself. "Oh, you're psychic are you? Well give me the winning horse in the Derby!" is just plain ignorant. The credo of this site is "Deny Ignorance." Simple as that. Post such as that should just be ignored as a waste of everybody's time.

The real issue here is that you were 'told' you had strong abilities, but what do YOU feel? Do you feel you really have psychic abilities?
Where are you going to go with it? Is this something you feel you should pursue?

I'd suggest finding a local spiritualist society. These are usually non-profit, non-religious/denominational type groups who are simply looking for answers. The local "psychic" probably isn't going to be much help (cross her palm with silver and she'll tell you anything you wanna hear).

There are some amazing psychics out there, but there are more bad ones. Like minds will find like minds. Just be careful out there.

As I mentioned before, if you're sensitive you will see/hear/experience stuff anyway, so you need to get yourself ready for that somehow.
Another idea you can try is to communicate that you'd rather have things come to you in your sleep. Dreams can be a whole lot less disconcerting, and you will quickly find your comfort level changing. Maybe you can work up to the more intense stuff that can happen. For those will little experience, some manifestations can be quite alarming.

Good luck to you.

You misunderstood butch, when I said how did you know I wasn't around 150 years ago I guess I was expecting you to demonstrate ways to do just that. It had nothing to do with embracing time travel or eternal youth.

As for disproving, why would I disprove something which has never been proven in the first place? I can claim any old nonesense like being around 150 years ago but I wouldn't expect you to accept it. Point me to proof of the existence of such things and I'll gladly accept I was wrong and shut up! But you can't and no one else can. Sorry, it's a nice fantasy that we all have about having magical powers but there is just no substance to it. I don't do faith, as you can tell, but I'd at least accept a scientifically plausible theory. Get quantum on me by all means

If anyone really thinks there's no proof of pyschic ability then you simply haven't looked. Check out Dr. Charles Tart's book, The End of Materialism, How Evidence of the Paranormal is Bringing Science and Spirit Together.

I know the man personally. This is his life's work [among over 400 other publications in peer-reviewed journals] and he dedicates 11 chapters specifically to the proven experience of psychic abilities/experiences of various sorts.

If you haven't heard of Charles Tart, maybe hearing that Huston Smith wrote the forward to his book might ring a bell.

Just for the record, I think that anyone who charges for their services is a fraud.
All these bearded tits with their slick suits on TV, who ask the mug audience,

Tit with beard: 'I'm getting a message, does anyone here know someone called........

Voice from audience: yes, yes, my Johnny passed 37 years ago

Tit with beard: ah yes, Johnny says what you're looking for is under the bed.

These idiots give the paranormal a bad name and comic element among the masses.

yeah...the lotto numbers.
that's like the cliche psychic. that's what everyone wants. i haven't ever heard of anyone predicting the lotto numbers in any country anywhere.
If you want lotto numbers then maybe you should eat some fortune cookies.

Totally agree with you there Butch.
Like that John Edward guy that was a fraud.

Just like fishing, for the biggest sucker.

completely give the whole psychic anything a bad rap and unbelievable.

To lead you in the right direction is not what we(ATS) are here for. We are simply positive reinforcement. The right path is yours to choose.

With that being said, a first step to anything psychic is always clearing the minds eye. Concentration as well as peripheral vision exercises along with deep meditation can do the trick. There are numerous exercises on the internet.

I know of one in which there are two colored circles. One red with a vertical white line and one blue with a horizontal white line. The exercise focuses on both concentration as well as peripherals. The task is to focus the circles onto each other by concentrating "past" them. When done correctly you will see one purple-ish circle with a cross in the middle.

As with all things, persistence pays off. I hope you do have the courage to pursue these gifts that have been granted to you.

Funny how a completely legitimate post about proof and experience of paranormal, with 400+ peer-reviewed publications, can be overshadowed by one post about someone some people think is a fraud...

Want a quick and easy answer?

I haven't got a traffic ticket in 25 years because I routinely slow down 1/2 mile before the cop waiting at the side of the road; still freaks my wife out.

I can recognize the aura of a woman who's pregnant. Once (when I was nieve about this kinda thing) I congratulated a co-worker on being pregnant! She didn't know she was and had already broken up with her boyfriend. I almost got killed over that one, not to mention she never spoke to me again.

These are just stories, call me a fake, I don't care. What I wrote above means nothing at all, although it's truth.

But, read Charles Tart's book if you actually want some evidence.

One story that comes to mind is about the US military use of remote viewing. There are stories about this in the book. Stories that show documented "views" of what's actually in a specified location which the person could never have been to.

If a person really doesn't want to believe in psychic ability they're not going to, period. Maybe he or she should just forget about it rather than arguing that say, the easter bunny doesn't exist.

I grew up in a spiritualist household (which means that we lived a very normal family life, except Mother was a spiritualist. Oh, and weird stuff would occasionally show up/happen only to be considered 'normal'....I know. We weren't all dragged of to church every week and and all that). I've seen a lot.

I've also seen a lot of very, very bad 'mediums.' Maybe some just try too hard, maybe some of them just have no gift at all but like being the center of attention.

I've seen them address a hundred people over 70 years old and ask, "Does anyone on the right recognize the name 'George'?" [or any other old-fashioned name like Alice/Albert/Eunice/Florence/Charlie etc.] Chances are, if you are over 70 you knew a million Georges. Most of the people who were your peers/family are already dead. So yes, someone always recognizes the name as someone who has 'passed.'
"Did he always wear a hat?" Well, until the mid 60's most people wore a hat of some description.
"He liked music, right?" Well, there's a stretch...
And so on and so forth. That kind of thing. Makes me very mad to see this kind of crap.

On the other hand, I've seen them zero in on a person and describe to the finest detail an artifact/moment in time/person/personal trait etc. without any hesitation. I've even seen people sitting around the 'victim' trying their hardest to shoehorn the story into something that makes it relevant to their own lives - only to have the medium tell them to 'bog off, it's for her, not you.'

Some of the mediums out there are phenomenal. Most - not all, but a vast majority of these - would not dream of performing their services for a fee. I'm always very wary of those who do charge for their services, or the 'celebrity mediums.' They just don't sit right with me; in the same way that the Evangelists in $5000 suits cry and ask for money....

The problem with mediums is that if there is a signal coming through, their ego (albeit quite unintentionally and/or subconsciously) gets in the way and interferes with the signal. Try to put yourself in the shoes of the person on the other side! You are trying to get a message to your loved one, and this medium keeps harping on about shoes or haircuts or similar minutiae. Must be very frustrating.

I've seen deep trance mediums. I've seen ectoplasm. I've seen spirit lights.
If seeing is believing........

I've seen/heard/experienced too much to dismiss it as delusional.
I once watched 'someone' walk right through my Mother's living room. Clear as day, just like a real person. She saw the same thing and our eyes followed in unison (you just know it's not a living person). A friend in the same room, who didn't see, it was quite alarmed at our reaction... That's the kind of 'seen' I'm talking about. Not just the shadows moving out of the corner of your eye 'seen'.

Honestly, "Prove it" is just completely ignorant, childish, and stupid. FFS.

On the other end of the spectrum, I also believe that if someone has passed, what makes you think they want to be contacted? Imagine taking a lovely long nap and being woken up every five minutes by people wanting to know if you're there...That would be very frustrating.

Food for thought: The Catholic Church, not usually renowned for their progressive thinking and embracing of alternate thinking, began studies in the early 70s into Electronic Voice Phenomena. They recently announced that it was no longer a sin to, "talk to the dead."
Two hundred year ago they would have burned people at the stake for the same thing, right? Why the sudden change in their thinking. What do they know? Has something made them change their mind about this?

This had turned out to be a Fantastic thread!

Thanks kindly for everyone's opinion and insight and help with my journey.

Who really wants to wake the dead. I really just had one occasion where my grandma showed up at the end of my end and told me she needed a hug. I lay a rose for her and my grandpa and uncle at their resting place. She hasn't visited me since but it was just a weird experience.

thanks again

well actually the answer to that is yes; they do need to be made aware of it because i have friends that do indeed have gifts that they are not cognizant of yet

I don't think it is a good idea to go down the 'psychic' route until your mental health has improved. Actually you sound pretty balanced to me but I would still leave it a while. Good luck

You really do not understand because I know personally these things are real because my own experiences are far greater than any of those I listed previously. And yes my abilities have been proven but you would not know about it unless you were there or part of the testing (government) party. My abilities are always in the subconscious; when it matters and I am in mortal danger it surfaces consciously and anybody around at the time now has the eyes of the beholder. No joke.

Just cause your brain opperates at 8 1/2% deosn't give you the right to predict what can happen when someones brain reaches 18-30%. Your little mind is not long enough to wrap around the can grasshopper.

Open the mind and find out for yourself and shut up the psycho babble.
These things are real, plain and simple.

Not true I still have pretty strong psychic ability today but nothing like what I had in 1999. I attribute my having to relearn all of the abilities to a series of seizures I had starting 2001-2002 these caused enough brain damage to completely scramble my abilities and left me with major depression in place of the abilities.

Sunny side though every single one of them are slowly beginning to return very slowly though.

Everybody has "abilities". Its not a matter of controlling them, its if you want them, you use them. I mean its like your eyes. If you want to look at something you do it. If you don't. You... don't. Lol
