What does it truly mean to be psychic? Can ordinary people have extraordinary psychic or spiritual experiences? And what is the best way to develop your psychic intuition? In this article, Allure looks at some of the myths and misconceptions around being psychic, and how just about anyone can increase our precognitive abilities (and then some!)
Psychics, on the other hand, are simply individuals who are able to see, hear, feel, sense, taste, or have intuition beyond the boundaries of the physical world. It is difficult, perhaps even impossible, to firmly define what society deems “normal” perception. After all, we are conditioned to believe that our perception of reality is fairly concrete: We assume that everyone knows the sky as blue or can detect when someone is in a cranky mood. But as we continue to expand this sensory spectrum, we quickly realize that certain senses become increasingly less common among our peers. It is through this awareness that many of us become aware of our unique, inherent psychic gifts.
