What Is ESP?

According to Merriam-Webster, extrasensory perception is defined as: “perception (as in telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition) that involves awareness of information about events external to the self not gained through the senses and not deducible from previous experience — called also ESP.”

The first known use of the word, they report, was in 1934.

Word Central, Merriam Webster’s site for students, defines it this way: “an awareness of events or facts that cannot be explained by communication using any of the known senses.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigations, which studied the matter, says, “ESP is considered a perception of information about events beyond what may be discerned through the five physical senses or deduced from past experience or knowledge.”

The Psychic Library goes into greater detail, saying, “Extrasensory perception (ESP), also known as cryptesthesia and the sixth sense, is the ability to acquire information without the use of the five physical senses. Many people believe that everyone is born with one form or another of ESP.  For some people it is more developed than others.

“Often by the age of 4 or 5 years old, logic and reason start to take a stronger hold on the mind and these abilities are weakened or lost,” the website continues. “However, there are those who do continue to develop their ESP, especially those individuals who are born into a family where psychic abilities are multi-generational and/or nurtured and encouraged.”

Do you often experience déjà vu? Are there times when you know something but have no idea how you attained the knowledge?  Have you ever picked up an object belonging to someone else and had a strong impression or a clear vision related to that person? If you’ve had experiences like this, it may be an indication of the psychic gifts you were born with.

ESP can be manifested in a number of different ways and through a variety of psychic abilities – from clairvoyance and premonitions to telepathy and psychokinesis. It may be something as unobtrusive as intuition, where you just seem to know things without consciously thinking about them. Or it may be something as undeniable as psychokinesis, which is the ability to move physical objects using only your will.

Do people tell you that you have a gift for reading people?  That might be the vestiges of your psychic ability to pick up impressions or thoughts from someone else, known as psychometry. Using ESPpsychics can expand our knowledge and understanding of life.

Are you among the number of people whose psychic abilities are more developed? Have you managed to balance the logic and reason needed to function in the day-to-day world against the gifts that you were born with? Perhaps you know someone who seems to know things others don’t but who scoffs when you mention the possibility of psychic abilities.  Sometimes ESP tests our willingness to believe.

Even if you were raised to value common sense and reason, you may still have latent psychic abilities. Psychics Directory offers free psychic testing, if you are ready to explore the possibilities.  You may want to speak to a psychic first to begin your journey.  Psychic abilities testing will always be available, whenever you are ready for ESP tests.
