What is a "psychic"?

Blessed Greetings.

What is a "psychic"? Is there anyone who is NOT a psychic?

I ask because of my experience with the biblical parable of Adam and Eve in Genesis.

My personal eperiences tell me that we are all created as perfect beings splashed with the paint of technical improvements upon Nature. This paint obscures the transparency that we once had wherein we saw into the Spirits of one another as a Natural mode of communication.

Once we have eaten of the poison fruits of technology and our physical vehicle of consciousness, the brain is polluted, splashed, our transparent windows to one another's Souls are clouded. We thus aquire the ability to lie; to deceive, and all fruits that go with it.

I believe we are all "psychic" at varying degrees of ability and recognition. I have found that in returning to Nature as closely as possible in what we build our Earthly persons with, our food and drink, the paint on the windows of our Souls begins to fade and we better and better, more and more, SEE into one another as planned and created.

What do you think Brandi?

In the Spirit of LOVE,

What is a "psychic"? That's an interesting question. The Mirriam Webster's definition is "a person apparently sensitive to nonphysical forces : sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences : marked by extraordinary or mysterious sensitivity, perception, or understanding". I actually like this definition, it works for me.

I agree, most people are psychic to some degree. I have met few people who show absolutely no signs of empathy, intuition or an understanding that there is more to reality than we can grasp with our common senses. The only argument is to what degree these sensitivities are "real" or "imagined", how reliable they are, whether or not they come from a "God" or a "Devil". I feel the psychic abilities are tied to creative abilities. They function in similar ways. I have met few artists, writers, photographers or musicians who are not also intuitive, sensitive or psychic to some degree.

I don't know that I would use the word "polluted" because I believe our being physical is part of a natural cycle of development, rather than a curse or a "fall" ... but I wholeheartedly agree with your insight that humanity is confused. Sometimes I despair at how asleep we seem to be. But I do not blame that confusion on technology, rather I blame it on fear. We've been in this condition since history began ... there wasn't much technology around to confuse the mind in the Dark Ages, for example. Fear on the other hand, that has been our biggest enemy from the beginning.

The antidote to fear is love, and love is the root of empathy, which is, somewhat ironically, one of the psychic gifts. You are right that respect for nature is vital if we are to grow spiritually, and we defnitely suffer in modern times from lack of connection to the Earth. Yet I don't think we have to abandon technology entirely - clearly the psychic community has embraced computers and the Internet (we could not have had this discussion twenty years ago). There was a study recently that said the more educated you are, the more likely you are to believe in the paranormal. I see that as a positive sign. I believe that some technologies are vital to our growth as a species, especially the Internet. I see it as the beginnings of a neural network with the potential of eventual self-awareness. The question really is, are we using technology from a love-based perspective, or a fear-based one? It is from love that our answers will come.

Am I psychic?

I had a previous psychic tell me that I had abilities, I sometimes feel certain things and know stuff about people. How do I tap into this ability and make it stronger? Or am I even psychic? My older sister has the ability to see spirits and apparently so did my father. Appreciate your response. Thanks!


It is not unusual for psychic ability to run in families. In fact it is common. I would talk to your other family members to compare experiences, if they are open to it.

As for improving your psychic abilities, the two most important tools I recommend are journal-keeping and daily meditation. The Oracle at Delphi said "Know Thyself" and this was universal wisdom. 90% of being a good psychic is getting out of your own way, letting go of the need to "perform", and just letting the wisdom flow through you.

Just keep writing down your experiences over the next little while. Then, as you confirm them, keep track of your "hits" and "misses". That will show you where your blind spots and natural affinities are. You may find your abilities work much like your sister's or dads ... but maybe not. Everyone has their own preferences that have as much to do with personality as they do with talent.

Another thing that is important, do learn how to ground, how to do the White Light Exercise ... learning psychic protection first and foremost is vital to your path to becoming a better psychic. Good luck!
