Parapsychology and Psychic Phenomena

By Amber K.
Through parapsychology, we are at last beginning to gain insights into the hidden nature of man. Parapsychology is a branch of psychology which studies psychic phenomena. Remarkable evidence has been gathered on numerous cases of psychic phenomena. Knowledge gained from para-psychology studies can be applied, to a much broader based, theoretical study and practice.


Thus, the human mind and body appears to broadcast psychic energy or force, much like a radio station. Kirlian photography and cloud chamber tests tend to support this theory. Although the exact nature of this psychic force is subtle and unknown, it is undoubtedly the energy behind all psychic phenomena and magick. However, it is NOT a radio wave, since it behaves somewhat differently. The psychic force is too weak to be measured directly (at least so far as we know). Everyone has some psychic ability. There are numerous types of psychic phenomena. Parapsychology separates them into two groups: ESP and PK...




Examples of ESP


ESP, the abbreviation for extra sensory perception, means the reception of information through paranormal means (i.e. not regular physical senses of sight, sound, touch, smell, or taste). In theory, this is accomplished by receiving psychic force from outside the body. Here are some examples of ESP:
  1. Clairvoyance, or Remote Viewing - the ability to sense or 'see' (non-physically) distant objects, places, and people. Individuals who see ghosts and spirits are probably clairvoyant.
  2. Astral Projection (OOBE) or Traveling Clairvoyance - Full experience at a remote location while the physical body sleeps.
  3. Psychometry - the reading of information by the touch of physical objects.
  4. Telepathic receiver - the ability to directly receive thought (communication) at a distance, with no physical connection to the sender. There are many everyday examples of this, in which we think something just as another person is about to say it. This is an easy one to test for through experiment. Very dramatic cases of telepathy have been recorded; there is often an emotional element in such cases.
  5. A medium, as in a seance.
  6. Experience with a Ouija board, pendulum, or automatic writing.
  7. Precognition - to foresee the future. Again, highly emotional events are the ones most likely to be 'tuned in'.

Examples of PK


PK, the abbreviation for psychokinesis, is the active or sending side of psychic phenomena. The theory here is that psychic force is sent out from the individual. Examples of PK include:
  1. Telepathic sender -- the transmitter in the telepathy just discussed.
  2. Psychokinesis (or telekinesis) proper – the ability to move objects by means of psychic force. Poltergeist (noisy ghost) phenomena in which objects move of their own accord or noises are heard. There is always a human agent involved -- frequently a teenage girl -- who appears to be the source of psychic energy.
  3. Psychic healing is the ability to heal various illnesses and infirmities. There are many documented cases of this. Usually it involves a healer and a subject, although there are recent cases involving cancer patients learning to heal themselves.
  4. Teleportation, apportation, and levitation. Some occultists feel a person producing PK effects is simply a channel for universal energy. Others think the force originates some way directly within the person.
