A part of our human condition is to both look within in our attempts to know ourselves and to look outwards in order to know our futures. From eons of studying nature and the world around us we have devised rituals and procedures with which to meet the unknown. Here is a fascinating list of the 7 most requested psychic abilities across the world and how they work.
Intuition – A socially accepted term for psychic awareness. The meaning of the two words In and Tuition are interesting. IN comes from Middle English and Latin origin meaning SEE. And TUITION from Middle English and Latin meaning PROTECTION. So intuition really means see protection or protective sight. Next time you act on your intuition you can say you are acting upon your protective sight!
When a person seeks out the advice of a tarot reader, love spell caster, clairvoyant, or mystic the most important assumption that is made is that the seer has the natural gift of intuition. As an intuitive being the question you must always ask yourself is do you pay more attention to information that comes in through your five senses (Sensing), or do you pay more attention to the patterns and possibilities that you see in the information you receive (Intuition)? Intuition and your senses are not the same thing!
Telepathy – Transfer of thoughts or emotions in either direction.
The concept of telepathy is as old as the hills. Psychics, for example, claim to be able to read the minds of strangers. Mothers often experience ugly premonitions when something unfortunate has happened to their child. Long before the era of mobiles and ‘caller ID’, many people claimed to be able to predict which friend was calling when they heard the telephone ring. There are also endless examples of identical twins claiming to experience the same feelings and emotions, and make similar life decisions, despite being miles, or even continents apart — sometimes without having ever met.
Divination – Gaining insight into a situation, most commonly through a ritual.
Divination is the art or practice of foretelling the future using different methods that the diviner may decide. The art of Divination has been practiced by all countries, cultures and religions around the world for thousands of years. It was studied over two thousand years ago in China by the study of cracked eggs for Divination. Some of the most popular forms of divination include tarot cards, runes, astrology and dowsing. But in the past there were times in history when divination was considered a crime and in fact still is in many countries today. How accurate the divination will depend upon the reader.
During the time of ancient Rome there were priests that were called, Augur. The Augur was tasked with the divination of the flight of birds. It was believed at the time that the flight of birds gave an indication on the will of the Gods. The divination was undertaken by studying the breed of birds, direction of flight, noises they made and other signals.
Mediumship or channeling – Communicating with spirits.
Mediumship is the ability to sense Spirit (most often those who have lived on earth before, but this includes Spirit Guides/Angels too), and decipher the messages they wish to share with us. This is not always an easy thing to do, but it is an ability that we all have. Some are born with this ability already fully developed, while others have to work at it some. The most requests demands of a medium is:
* Presenting information, verifiable or otherwise.
* Causing so-called paranormal activities to occur.
* Channeling forth certain types of energies.
* Manifesting themselves for objective examination and/or identification.
Clairvoyant – literally means “clear-sighted” in French, and for nearly 200 years that is what it meant in English as well.Being clairvoyant is having or claiming to have the power of seeing objects or actions beyond the range of natural vision.
So a clairvoyant is said to be able to see clearly. Silly really because we can all see clearly, if we have our normal vision in order that is. What is really meant by the term clairvoyant is the ability for a psychic to see what normally can’t be seen, or to see the future or to see the spirits of people who have passed over.
Empath – Having the unique the ability to scan another’s psyche for thoughts and feelings or for past, present, and future life occurrences. Many empaths are unaware of how this actually works, and have long accepted that they were sensitive to others.
A psychic empath (sometimes called a Sensitive) takes on other people’s feelings of pain or pleasure, actually feeling the emotions of others. For a psychic empathy healer it is an ability that can help in relating the symptoms and cause of a client’s ailment. However many empaths would rather not have this sensitivity as they can experience life as an emotional roller coaster when in the midst of emotionally high people. Shopping malls can be quite traumatic for these sensitives.
Empathy is the ability to read and understand people and be in-tune with or resonate with others, voluntarily or involuntarily of one’s empath capacity.

Tarot Reading – Tarot is one of the oldest forms of fortune telling known to man. A tarot deck is a deck of cards, usually 78 cards, that is used by someone who is skilled in the reading of them.
A Tarot reading is like a snapshot of what your life looks like at the time of the reading. The cards tune into your energy – the person asking the question – to give you a picture of unseen influences, patterns of behavior, obstacles, and strengths. A reading can give you an idea of where you are now, where you’ve come from, where you want to be, and how to get there.
Tarot provides the answers to your life. It describes your joys, problems, conflicts, and issues. It identifies life patterns, pinpoints areas where change would manifest a better direction, and directs you toward success.
