Answer by milly_1963
We are all born with Psychic senses everyone you talk too Yes even YOU, has one or more psychic sense

Some people choose to enhance them, others just ignore them, others may just shut them down.

They still use them however they don’t know they are : )

Senses are

Sight: Eyes “Clairvoyance” Spiritual Body “Eye” (called the Third Eye)
Sound: Ears “Clairaudience” Spiritual Body “Ear”
Touch: Skin “Clairsentience” Spiritual Body “Skin”
Taste: Tongue/Nose “Clairlinguance” Spiritual Body “Tongue”
Smell: Nose “Clairolerance” Spiritual Body “Nose”
*Know: Brain “Claircognizance” Spiritual Body “Mind”

Clairaudience – Intuitive
This is a person who will pick up a thought and hear it. This persons mental or intellectual understanding is very important and they can make good leaders. We all know someone that we would say was a mental person, always having to understand mentally. They carefully think things through. If this person were to become enlightened they would have the ability to become a medium, someone who channels information from entities who have passed over, because their most heightened sensitivity is to hear.

Clairvoyance- Visionary
This is a person who will pick up a thought and see it. This person has the ability to transform a thought into a vision, symbol or in colour by using their mind’s eye. If an artist, a decorator, a creative person, someone who mainly uses the right side of their brain were to become enlightened they would have the ability to read auras, our chakras, draw guides and this is how they would channel what they received because the ability to see images is their most heightened sensitivity.

Clairsentience – Prophetic (1)
This is a person who will pick up a thought and just knows it. This person is sensitive to precognition and has hunches, dreams and knowings and this person usually deals with the future or present and how it will affect another. If you were to meet an enlightened Prophetic you would be able to get some information about your ‘line of probability’, tomorrow is not set in time remember. This could be a person who has a dream about something and that dream turns out to happen in reality. They have the ability of prediction because they ‘just know’ and can tune into and understand their hunches.

Clairsentience – Feeler (2)
This is a person who will pick up a thought and transform it immediately into a feeling. This persons life can revolve around how it feels to them. Their sense of touch is well-developed and they have the ability to know people by feeling what they feel. After enlightenment, this is someone would have the ability to practice psychometry. The ability to put something belonging to someone in their hand and read the energy. Depending on their other gifts, they could tell the past, present or future from the energy. They have the ability to feel how others feel but only on the emotional level. They will be able to not only empathise but experience their pain, loss, grief etc. For instance, if they were to channel energy from a persons past life they would experience the pain and hurt that that soul experienced in that past lifetime.

Clairgustance – Taste
Clairgustance is being aware of tastes without putting anything physically in the mouth. To perceive the essence of a substance through taste from the spiritual or ethereal realms. The sensation of what one is tasting is often linked to a spirit on the other side.

Claircognizance – Know
The sense of knowing through our brain, even though it is not a physical sense, simply because it has a corresponding metaphysical sense known as claircognizance, or knowing without knowing how you know.

Clairolerance – Smell
The sense of Smelling different fragrances from Spirits to find that earthly connection, strong odours you can’t escape and can’t explain a reason for eg: Cooking odours, Perfumes, Cigars or Cigarettes, Flowers, Extra. The characteristic essence linked to a spirit on the other side.

“Using some of the senses or all of the senses you can do”
Psychometry – Touch
Psychometry is another form of psychic divination using the sense of touch to get mental impression linked to it. Psychometric impressions may come in the form of emotions, sounds, scents, tastes or images. The visions can appear is single flat images, much like a photo, or as animations. As we exist in an electromagnetic energy reality, metal objects often work best.

Aura Reader – see
Aura readings look at your spiritual energy system as represented in the seven layers of your aura. Along with colours, a reader may see memory pictures, symbolic images, spiritual beings and usually energies belonging to others–like friends and family members. Readings can help you identify and release blocks. Aura readings also help you get in touch with your own energy, so you can know your own truth and make the highest choices for yourself.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Really, how different are the prophesies in the bible from any sidewalk psychics predictions?

.
OK so biblical prophesies are more vague than a psychic.
And we are still waiting for that “possibility” to happen.
Other than quasi free, the sidewalk psychics are winning.

Answer by Merry Prankster
sidewalk psychics are more likely to be correct

Answer by Ashish A
Biblical prophecies are for whole nations and communities, and always free of charge. The psychics charge and can only speak about individuals. The phrocies are recorded and have been there for thousands for years for anyone to read and study, no psychic has put his or her reputation on line even for a most short-lived prediction

Answer by snez_4eva
Psychics operate either out of Satan’s power or are just a scam. Prophecies from the bible are God’s word, and tell us the plans He has for our lives. However, we still have to choose to follow what is prophecied!

Answer by Pangel A.R.T
the difference is …
most psychics will admit that what they see is only a possible future and that we have free will and can make the future what we wish it to be
any prediction a psychic makes , is only to be used as guidance

edit
my favourite prediction of all time
written by a man who didnt even know he was predicting… which is a shame because it could have saved many lives

Answer by kim
At least the bible won’t force me to pay a ridiculously large amount of dough for palm reading or watching some stupid ball just sitting there…

Answer by centralnyguy2005
Much different Yahoo…. bible prophecies have actually come true… many complicated specific ones at that…Many psychics predictions don’t come true.. .. Also so called psychic predictions are usually very general and broad…. Where is bible prophecy is more specific.. Hope that helped…God bless you !

Answer by MamaBear
The only sidewalk “psychic” I have ever known was a sad, bi-polar man who refused to follow his doctor’s advise and take his medication. He would wander the streets in my hometown and make wild predictions, shout at cars, and try to worm his way into homes (including ours) claiming to be a “prophet”. His predictions were NEVER accurate….thankfully, as they usually were predictions of some personal disaster. For example, he tried to tell my best friend, while she was pregnant, that she was carrying twins and that both would be born dead. (Her husband ran him off.) The important point is: NON OF THIS SAD, MENTALLY UNSTABLE MAN’S PREDICTIONS CAME TRUE. Not one. He eventually committed suicide.

As a contrast, quite a lot of the prophecies in the Bible have come true! The prophets in the Old Testament were required to give some proof of their long-term predictions, called a sign. If the sign failed, the prophecy could be ignored. The men and women who successfuly predicted the future, sometimes hundreds of years in advance, also were not suicidal. However, many of them were persecuted for their messages, which usually included warnings to political leaders against their evil deeds. Many were jailed and/or tortured, sometimes to death, for their trouble.

Answer by upulagi
The prophecies in the bible… all have come to pass to date…in other words.. those which are supposed to have to come pass already;;; all have,. A striking one for me.. is that Israel became a nation in1948..
One of the strongest objective evidences of Biblical inspiration if the phenomenon of fulfilled prophecy. The bible is essentially unique among the religious books of mankind in this respect. Some of them contain a few vague forecasts, but nothing comparable to the vast number of specific prophecies found in the Bible. The same is true of modern “prophets”, so-called. Such seers as Nostradamus, Jean Dixon, and others have made many predictions, but often they are nebulous and capable of various meanings. A few of their prophecies seem to have been fulfilled in a general way, but most of the have completely failed.

Only God knows the future. He is able to “call the things that are not, as though they were” (Romans 4:17). He declares “the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done.” (Isaiah 46:10; Acts 15:18). If one can demonstrate the ability to the future things that find exact fulfillment, it would follow logically that such a person, in possession of this gift, would be speaking on the behalf of God. His message therefore, would be valid.

Prophets, to be legitimate, must stand the test of time. If the prophet was not completely correct 100% of the time he is a false prophet. Prophecy, to be valid, must predate the event; must be precise enough so as to not be vague; must have enough events described to be beyond human ability to calculate or manipulate; in other words not be something that man could do, without God’s guidance.

Answer by yogiraj
The basic difference is that one is written in the Bible and the other oral.

Answer by R Rosskopf
Psychics have a much lower batting average than prophets. Psychics rarely put their life on the line to preach repentance to their believers. Psychics are in it for the money. Prophets are called of God. Psychic prophesies that are not ambiguous rarely happen. True prophecies happen whether they are ambiguous or not.
There are many who scoff at Bible prophets, saying that the prophecies were written down after they had been fulfilled. That logic doesn’t hold up, when compared with the prophecies of modern day prophets. Joseph Smith, for example, had several prophecies that were printed in newspapers before they came to pass. They are not ambiguous, and they have a success rate beyond 98%.

Not all prophecies come to pass, because some prophecies are contingent upon our actions, but 98% puts Joseph Smith in the running as one of the worlds greatest prophets.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Why do some people have psychic abilities?

You can tell me that psychics are fake, and while many of them are, some people do truly have the ability to see certain things.

I once met a woman who was not a psychic by profession but claimed to have certain abilities. She knew nothing of me or of my family before, but she asked permission to tell me some things. She made a certain number of predictions at the time such as when I would meet my husband, the death of my grandmother, and the age and personality of my mentor at the university where I would eventually do my doctoral studies (I was still preparing to apply to various schools at the time). So far, all of these predictions have been a hundred percent true.
I did not pay her anything or give her any information, so how was she a con artist?
I didn’t discount any wrongs. I was told of death and illness in my family. Sure enough, it happened, but not for a few years.
Really, nom nom nom? Then how come she was right about everything? How come I met the man that I married around the time she suggested? How come my mentor reflects the personality traits that she mentioned but I had not even know him yet?
You still did not answer my question on how she was actually accurate. Also, she was not at all craving attention. She was not going on and on about her special powers. She just mentioned nonchalantly that she picked up on some things and asked me if it was alright to tell me. I took it all with a grain of salt, but so far she has been right about the things that she said.
Then why have I had experiences of ESP? There was a time that I was in a foreign country and I suddenly thought of this person that I hadn’t seen in over five years. I ended up running into them that afternoon in the middle of a country we were both not from. Coincidence?
And you all could pay to have more open-mindedness in your life. It’s one thing to be healthfully skeptical, but sometimes there is more to the world than your pathetic human minds can understand. Not everything is so clear cut and scientifically explained. I just don’t buy that. I’ve seen too much proof otherwise. And since you have not had my personal experiences, you can’t prove anything.
No, I did not get taken. I did not owe anybody anything and I had the right to believe or not. There was only a handful of information given, and it was all completely accurate. I have thought about it, and it has all happened. It doesn’t matter whether it turned out to be fake or not. I did not set out to have a reading and I did not live my life to fulfill any prophecies. It just happened. So believe what you want, but I have had enough experiences of my own dreams foretelling reality to know that human beings do pick up on certain energies. I am sorry that you live such a boring and skeptical life. Maybe you should open up your mind to the possibility that there is more out there than you think.

Answer by Nom Nom Nom
They don’t have psychic abilities… She used a technique called “Cold Reading” and as a profesional con artist, she was able to tell you what you wanted to hear.

If you had a recording of the event, you’d see that you did what most people did and discount the wrongs and over react to the rights…

Con artists see your body language, they see your subconscious reactions, and they prey upon them…

Personal satisfaction, use as a reference later, or just the need to feel special can motivate people to delude others for no reason other than they felt like it.

Some people are so damaged that they create all sorts of nonsense just to feel “Special” and they’ll convince themselves that they aren’t just good at manipulation but have “Special Powers”.

Look at how people create personas like being Vampires and live day in and day out under the delusion that they need blood to live… I’m not talking about those stupid “Vampire cults” that went out and killed people, I’m talking about the people that go on shows like “The Secret Lives of Women” and talk about how they’re psychic vampires and need blood or else they feel sick… That they can read minds and drain others of their “Psychic Energy”.

They don’t get money from it, yet they maintain that they have “Powers” to not have to cope with how damaged they really are.

She was either looking to con you overtly or she is a damaged individual and that is desperate for people to tell them how special they are.

“Then how come she was right about everything?”

BECAUSE THIS IS THE PREDICTABLE WAY THAT PEOPLE CONNECT ANECDOTAL NONSENSE AND APPLY MEANING TO IT.

There was a guy on the episode of Penn & Teller’s episode “Talking to the dead” where they showed a guy that was taken in just like you about how the psychic “Knew everything” and was totally right about the psychic talking to his dead mother…

Then, later, he thought about it and realized after knowing that it was a test and realized that yeah, she was wrong more often than not and asked leading questions and that when it came down to it, he filled in blanks that didn’t exist…

You got scammed… I’m sorry you can’t cope with that, but if you actually saw a video of what happened, you would realize you got fu*ked and you participated out of a desperate need to believe.

No demons…
No god…
No magic…

Just damaged people all the way around.

Answer by mar
Sincere belief in God and supernatural, thus having the force/power of the devil also.

Answer by Angel
People have developed a strong natural intuition. Some have demons and some can ask God and have learned to hear God. Many psychics are demonic even if they don’t know it. A demon can come as an angel of light. Beware when people have Spirit guides… those are demons. They might be really nice people and not know that the guides are demons. They may even profess Jesus as Lord like he lady in the streets who Paul cast the demon from who had the familiar spirit.Acts 16:17,18 She followed Paul and the rest shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.There also are such things as prophets who can predict the future. Some are from God but the devil always counterfeits what God does and God’s gifts. A gift can come from God to a person and they can use it with a demon instead of God also but when they do it will be used outside of God’s will. God’s predictions edify and warn for purpose of prayer and encouragement but demons will not edify. They do it to bring you down,keep you in bondage or if it seems good that is a tactic.A demon can know the future either by being outside the timeline or by knowing their own plans of attack. That below is true also. The demonic fortune telling Spirits are in with the witchcraft ones and they are Jezebel and very destructive. Jesus was ‘marred’ for our transgressions . He took the destruction meant for us so that the lying demons who seek who they may destroy cannot. If focus on witches and fortune telling it will be focusing in on this Spirit instead of Jesus. Now Jesus knows everything and will lead you in the best way but demonic Psychic would lead you in self centered,arrogance,fear and loss.

Answer by Spencer
Like any psychic, she gave you vague predictions and then they happened to somehow fit with reality depending on interpretation. You sound like you could use more skepticism in your life.

Answer by Dr pushpinder k
Because they are conscious and aware
about the individual self and the universal self

and their relation with the individual and collective subconscious.

Psychic who predicted Japanese Earthquake Now Predicting Magnitude 9.0+ West Coast of USA & Sidney

Written by Anabella

Hi! I’m Anabella. I’m the owner and operator of Seerchat.com. I have been a professional online psychic for over 5 years now. I created this site as a source of information for people looking to learn about the business of webcam psychics.

I began realizing at age, 7, that I had the gift to see past & future events. This became a controversial family matter since my dad didn’t understand it. He had me visit a priest thinking I was possessed. I’ve been actively using my gifts for the past 20 years. “Tools” that I may use during a reading are tarot or pendulum to assist with helping to find answers.
