Are Psychics For Real?

Do they or do they not exist? This is the 24-dollar question that is in the mind of most people whose lives have been touched by a psychic negatively or positively.

Psychics were and are still controversial to this day because certain sectors associate their work with sorcery or witchcraft. Psychic research was considered taboo as early as the 1900s no self-respecting scientist would dare do such research or keep any book about psychics.

People looked at the field dishonorably that it needed someone already credible and secure enough with his career and reputation to delve into psychic studies. This was made possible by William McDougal who referred to paranormal studies as parapsychology. Joseph Banks Rhine, a student of MacDougal, was later known as the father of the study of modern parapsychology.

Rhine was however different from all the others who believed in parapsychology because he fearlessly exposed fake psychics but continued to perform controlled tests that would help in the development of psychic research. The tests conducted by Rhine proved that a person's psychic talents were not hampered by distance or time. Rhine's experiments and conclusions and his book on Extra Sensory Perception or ESP made him famous in the psychic world but it also got him the ire of many skeptics.

Aside from MacDougal and Rhine, many people have acquired credit for being involved in paranormal studies or practices. The majority of these people braved the possibility of being ridiculed by a world that has considered paranormal activities as bordering on insanity.

A closer look at history will however show that people possessed inherent powers to detect things and to protect themselves. Hundreds of years ago, people had natural abilities to sense danger but this all changed when humans became dependent on technology. Today, humans no longer use their senses to predict things, but rely on multi-media to tell them almost everything.

The invention of multimedia has changed man's ability to sense things and has destroyed his inner gift to mediate and visualize things. Modern disturbances have forced man to unlearn the use of his inner voice that warns him whenever something is amiss.

Modern society looked condescendingly at paranormal studies and practices some states consider fortunetelling as an illegal activity. But the critics of esoteric investigations could not also be blamed because some use their alleged paranormal gifts to make money. Some fortunetellers appear to be giving you new information about yourself but in fact, such information was only deduced from the information you provided or revealed about yourself and your family.

Psychics exist. However, it is up to you if you believe they have supernatural powers that can help build or destroy life.

To your happiness and success!!
