Let’s start with the definition. The word “psychic” means “of the soul” or “mental,” and people usually use it to describe a person’s extraordinary ability to see hidden information outside of the five known senses.
Often called ESP or “extrasensory perception,” psychics possess a sixth sense unknown to most of us, considered by many as a paranormal ability. The concept of psychic abilities is an old one, and thanks to the United States government, it is more widely accepted than ever, yet many people still deny real psychics exist.
The Term “Psychic Advisor” Was Made Popular By The Psychic Industry
This industry provides clients with glimpses into their future or helps them solve complicated life problems by telling the client the outcome of future events. Some of the most famous psychic advisors of the 20th century include Sylvia Browne, John Edward, and Tyler Henry. Psychics are not new; they date back to ancient times, especially in societies that followed astrology. People who could predict events without using astrological charts or systems were prophets, seers, or oracles.
Today we call these people psychics and clairvoyants. Mystery has always surrounded those incredible people. Their visions of the future have amazed and shocked people for centuries. One of the most famous psychics of the past was Nostradamus. Nostradamus was a 16th-century apothecary whose prophecies and visions are still famous worldwide. Most of his psychic visions involved horrible disasters like earthquakes, wars, murders, plagues, and floods. However, no one has dated his psychic predictions, leaving many skeptical.
Even though he is a highly controversial historical figure, many people still credit him for predicting many modern world events. Another famous psychic, Edgar Cayce, gained popularity in the 19th century when Modern Spiritualism began. He believed he could make contact with dead spirits, who gave him his predictions. Many presidents in the United States have had personal psychic advisors as well.
A 2005 Gallup Poll Found That 41% Of Americans Believe In ESP
The same study found that 26% believe in divination, and 31% believe in psychic or telepathic communication. According to a 2006 survey conducted by Oklahoma City University, the belief in psychic phenomena is more common among college seniors (31%) and graduate students (34%) than among first-year students (23%), which suggests that people with higher education level may be more likely to trust in psychic advisors.
Some people also believe families can pass down psychic abilities across generations. Others believe psychic powers can be enhanced or “turned on” by honing mental disciplines such as meditation. However, most real Psychics think you can only be born with the gift but can develop it further if you have it. People with psychic abilities often seek to make a living from their talents.
For example, some host psychic hotlines and websites touting their psychic abilities. Because of the size of this business, it has become much harder to determine if the person you consult with is a genuine psychic advisor or just a fake psychic looking to lighten your wallet. Only use the highest-rated psychic sites to get an authentic, accurate, talented Psychic advisor.
