I bet you know someone with well-developed psychic abilities, but they keep their talents secret from you. After all, American society stigmatizes seers. Prior to working with the Nevada Ghost and Paranormal Series, even I would’ve said they’re playing in Satan’s sandbox.

Since I became vocal about my GFH experiences, I’ve had three friends confide that they possess amazing psychic abilities from healing to prophetic dreams. People I would’ve never suspected even believed in ESP.

They don’t look like the stereotype

When I’d pictured a typical psychic, I saw an uneducated woman with long hair, bohemian dress, too much makeup, gobs of gaudy jewelry and too-long fingernails. In reality, they represent every segment of our population. Those I know hold jobs as an accountant, construction contractor, tailor, telecommunications manager, cosmetologist and psychologist.

The “sight” is in all of us

Every psychic I’ve met believes in one absolute truth: everyone possesses the sixth sense. Just like some of us need glasses to aid our eyesight, some of us need practice to strengthen our intuitive skills.

In addition, its intensity and scope vary greatly by the individual. Many believe children first suppress their ESP when adults tell them apparitions they see don’t exist (re: imaginary friends, deceased relatives and so on).

From mulling over my earlier strange happenings, I now know I’d rationalized away past psychic and paranormal experiences. After all, I’d thought intelligent people didn’t believe in ghosts. And I’d wanted to be perceived as smart!

My friend’s kind of telepathic

After GFH, an acquaintance came out of the psychic closet, telling me about the spirits I had encountered at the hotel that night. She tapped into the pictures in my mind; pictures that only someone who’d been there with me would know. She’d only told me to help me process my paranormal experience. Most of those close to her have no idea of her talents!

Pay attention to your intuitive sense

The Great I Am gave us this ability to further our individual life journeys. Try paying attention to your inner voice, practicing meditation and praying. And, create some silence in your life. Even just five minutes each day will help you better tune in to what’s going on around you.
