Jokes aside, how much do we know about human psychic abilities? Do we know how psychic we are?
From the moment we are born, we are learning about ourselves in many different ways. The majority of people don’t know much more about themselves than what they learn in school. Traditional schools teach us a little bit about our body functionality, a bit of chemistry, a bit of basic physics, some basic psychology and a few other things to assist us to get by in life. These schools do not have anything in their curriculum remotely related to the study of humans that goes beyond the physical body or beyond what we are ‘permitted’ to learn.
We are simply uneducated on this topic and left to discover our intuitive talents on our own.
Just like astrology, extrasensory ability becomes our extra-curriculum topic of study, and this is only of interest to relatively few people. The majority of people remain unschooled in these aspects of life and are frequently in denial and fear.
I find it interesting that scientists and astrologers are very similar when it comes to their relationship with psychic phenomenon. Both reap the benefits of their own extrasensory insights in their work, while pretending they are using pure logic when coming up with their brilliant ideas and predictions.
Astrologers rarely admit that their accurate readings are partly associated with spontaneous psychic vision. They usually attribute it to being good at certain astrological techniques.
Scientists, for the most part, are skeptical of the word ‘psychic’, and yet they too come up with their most brilliant discoveries and inventions while in a state of increased psychic openness. Such a state is associated with detaching from logic thinking, spacing out so to speak. This could happen while taking a walk in a park, having a shower or even during sleep. Scientists may admit that their brilliant idea did not come from a logical conclusion but from something else. However, that ‘something else’ is never attributed to a psychic insight. When asked how they come up with their inventions they usually say something like ‘I had a feeling’, ‘my intuition tells me’, ‘not sure, it just popped in my head’. Some use the word ‘intuition’: others talk about ‘creative thinking’. Ultimately they can’t’ explain it since they do not accept the existence of the human extrasensory abilities.
Many people are aware of the fact that human psychic ability, a sixth sense, intuition and extrasensory perception are all different names for the same phenomenon. Even ‘creative thinking’ is an ability of a human being to ‘space out’, remove the logic from the thought process and let the mind bring forward ideas that may defy any logic yet produce incredible results. Creative thinking therefore, in my opinion, falls into the category of extrasensory abilities.
Why do we use all these different names for one phenomenon? Different names are simply helping different groups of people define their own relationship with it.
We frequently observe this amazing phenomenon in life and/or hear about it. Some of us see spontaneous dreams that come true, some have accidental out of body experiences, some feel future events ‘in the gut’, some see ghosts, and so forth.
Sine we are generally uneducated about this phenomenon, it is largely misunderstood and even feared by many. In turn the fear prevents people from learning about it and developing their own special powers.
Everyone knows that having a high intelligence quotient (IQ) is better that having a low one. Human intelligence, by definition, is associated with the ability to learn, to solve problems, use logic and utilize other cognitive abilities.
Emotional intelligence (EI), or emotional quotient (EQ), is less popular, although it is extremely important for successful relationships and career. Knowing one’s own emotions and using them wisely changes one’s life for the better.
Continuing this line of thought, we can define many types of intelligence for every important aspect of life. For example, health intelligence (HI or HQ) refers to having knowledge of one’s own body and health and an ability to manage it without relying on medical establishment, financial intelligence (FI or FQ) as encapsulates knowledge of one’s own financial situation and an ability to manage it efficiently.
In my view, the idea of ESI or ESQ – extrasensory intelligence or extrasensory quotient needs to be accepted as a very important type of human intelligence. Few people have it these days but hopefully many more will soon discover it.
Let’s give ESI a proper definition. Here is my take on it:
Extrasensory intelligence is a general knowledge of human abilities that goes beyond logic, the five main senses and known body functionality, awareness of one’s unique natural extrasensory gifts and an ability to train yourself in new extrasensory skills and/or develop existing ones to a higher level.
To be extrasensory intelligent, as a first step, we will want to acquire as much knowledge as possible about human extrasensory abilities. As a second step, we will want to examine our own current abilities. A third step is to develop them to a higher level and possibly learn new ones.
Acquiring knowledge about extrasensory perception is not difficult, with books, internet and teachers available in abundance.
Before we dive into books, we need to remember that the different names, associated with this phenomenon, are all mental constructs, designed to help people create their relationship with it. You can pick any of these names should you have to tell friends what you are into these days.
The most common names are:
- Psychic phenomenon: This term is popularized and broadly accepted in the New Age community, however, it is ridiculed and virtually forbidden in the scientific community. Astrologers vary in their relationship with this term: many accept it, but some are staying away from it.
- Intuition: A mild concept with broad acceptance but covering a range of meanings from insignificant human ability all the way to a psychic talent.
- Extrasensory ability: This term is used in the secret service and scientific world, among groups of people interested in researching and using this phenomenon. It means an ability to perceive or obtain information by other means besides using one of the five human senses: hearing, eyesight, smell, taste and touch.
- Sixth sense: This term, popularized in a movie, has subsequently come to mean a human sense that allows one to receive information additional to that available through the five known senses.
We need to remember that there is a lot of information out there but it needs to be filtered, preferably with one’s own intuition.
In describing extrasensory perception and psychic abilities Wikipedia encourages the average user to think of these phenomenon as unproven, through its use of terminology such as ‘claimed perception’, ‘no scientific evidence exists’, ‘alleged’.
I believe that Wikipedia is assigned a role in framing the minds of the majority of people. We, humans are easily manipulated to stay within set ‘boundaries’ of our perception of reality because crossing these ‘boundaries’ is assumed to threaten our survival.
We frequently intuitively understand the big lie, but choose not to confront it because we are afraid.
The good news is that times are changing. High quality information is rapidly flooding out on to the internet.
You can now find all sorts of videos and articles on extrasensory perception being scientifically studied and validated as well as used by the secret services of many countries. People such as American physicist Russell Targ, a remote viewing specialist, are coming out with stories of working for the government on researching psychic abilities and the findings being subsequently used for military purposes.
You can look into a field of study called ‘Parapsychology‘. It is ‘the study of paranormal and psychic phenomena which include telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, near-death experiences, reincarnation, apparitional experiences, and other paranormal claims.’

How does ESP work? What is the physical nature of human ESP?
If you are familiar with my ‘Physics of Astrology’ framework you will understand how gravity and electromagnetism are responsible for the physical connection (and therefore correlation) between planetary motion and human behavior.
The physics of psychic phenomenon is also based on gravity and electromagnetism. In my framework I propose that gravity is an extremely low frequency energy wave. As such it is a part of electromagnetic spectrum. I called it gravitoelectromagnetism (GEM). Unified gravity with electromagnetism simplifies our understanding of how life works.
GEM, quantum entanglement and the holographic structure of the universe are components of an explanation of our extrasensory abilities from a physics perspective.
Our electromagnetically sensitive brain, body and aura, together function as an antenna, processor and resonator of any incoming GEM information. We are bombarded with an unlimited spectrum energy waves. Our five senses, like radio stations in ham radio, are designed to recognize, amplify and process information coming through the respective five segments of the GEM spectrum. The information delivered in other segments of the spectrum does not get our direct attention because we are not designed to process it properly. Nevertheless such information may be extremely valuable. If we want to capture it, we need to train our body to be sensitive to that type of information.
As we already know we have that ‘sixth sense’ in us. Our commonly known five senses are associated with different organs tuned to process the respective band of frequencies: eyes, ears, nose, tongue and skin.
Which organ is responsible for the sixth sense? Many people think it is our pineal gland. I believe it is our entire body. The body is sensitive to an extremely low band of GEM, which is gravity. The body depends on gravity completely. We can live without eyesight or hearing but we can’t survive without gravity. The gravity band is filled with information associated with planetary movements. In other words, our body is sensing all the subtle gravity fluctuations and waves coming from our interactions with celestial bodies, including lunar cycles and solar cycles. While these days our computers can calculate planetary positions into the future based on the analysis of their past motion, our sophisticated body can also extrapolate events into the future based on our history of sensing subtle gravity changes associated with planetary movement. Our body knows what’s coming. It’s our mind’s challenge to consciously process this information.
The way to tune our mind to recognize and process this subtle information is to shut the five senses off, as they are like radio stations that are too loud and are distracting us from seeing the future. We need to quieten down and look within, as they say. This is why sensory deprivation is very powerful when it comes to enhancing one’s psychic abilities.
Sensory deprivation is more prevalent around us than we realize.
If you close your eyes, find a quiet place with no sounds or where you are able to tune yourself out of external white noise, get comfortable in your body and skin, get warm and relaxed, you are pretty much sensory deprived. At that point the only sense that is at work is the sixth sense, which is picking up information from gravity waves. It’s known that blind (or deaf) people are highly psychic.
Of course, people are different in their developmental stages and their sensitivities. A more sophisticated human processor is able to extrapolate the data into the past and future better than average. In other words, each person is able to pick up and consciously translate the gravity information to the extent that their current state of ESI allows them.
Quantum entanglement is another great phenomenon linking physics and extrasensory perception. This phenomenon explains the famous New Age expression ‘We are all one’.
In short, it means that no matter how far away particles of the same family are in space, if you affect one, the others get affected simultaneously. This means there is an instant transfer of information defying the speed of light.
The concept of the holographic universe explains clairvoyance, for example. When a clairvoyant looks at a flat image, a photograph of someone, s/he can extrapolate that into 3D and 4D, so that in his or her imagination s/he can see the person in the present, past and future, as if the picture was a hologram and it’s activated by the clairvoyant’s vision. Our conscious mind, being in-tune with our sixth sense, is able to project the vision of someone or something into the past, future and present anywhere.
In spite of overwhelming evidence and witness testimonies, Wikipedia is still trying to fight the growing availability of knowledge and people’s curiosity by labeling remote viewing and parapsychology as ‘pseudoscience’.
On the bright side Wikipedia gives us an amazing list of various human psychic abilities:
Notable psychic abilities:
- Apportation, conjuration – The ability to undergo materialization, disappearance or teleportation of an object.
- Astral projection or mental projection – The ability to voluntarily project the astral body (consciousness), being associated with the out-of-body experience, in which the astral body is felt to temporarily separate from the physical body.

I’m impressed with Wiki’s amazing list of all the names given to various human extrasensory talents.
One of the common definitions of intelligence is ‘the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills’. This is where the extrasensory intelligence begins.
I feel that reading this list of human extrasensory abilities, thinking about each one of them, makes me more intelligent in understanding the human capacity to live and learn outside the boundary we are trained to stay in.
Do we have any of these abilities? Can that list be longer? I’m sure the sky is our limit.
I can attribute many of the above-named abilities to what I have experienced in my life. I got to know my own abilities and I met a lot of other talented extrasensory practitioners, as well as ‘regular’ people experiencing spontaneous psychic insights.
Besides acquiring knowledge and skipping over the words ‘alleged’, ‘claimed’, ‘scientifically unproven’, the extrasensory intelligence is also about understanding human development in general.
I have noticed that psychic abilities at first manifest as spontaneous occurrences for most people, especially at a young age. Then some people ‘grow out of it’, while some continue to have spontaneous psychic occurrences in their lives and others take control over their abilities and learn how to use them on demand.
Between these three different types of people, the first and the second group would not be considered extrasensory intelligent; however, both have great potential and natural abilities. The third group would be considered extrasensory intelligent: training yourself to be psychic on demand requires a bit of work and an understanding that this ability is natural, trainable and useful.
How does astrology relate to psychic phenomenon?
Each human has the same set of planets in their charts, just like each individual has the same set of organs, instincts and feelings in their body, ensuring survival. The planets in people’s charts are mixed in different aspects and placed in different houses. Therefore, the nuances of behavior and circumstances vary. The well-known and strongest psychic signatures in natal charts are Neptune, 12th house, Pisces and a few others.
Neptune is my favorite. I always thought that since everyone has Neptune in their charts, this means everyone has intuition. In my view Neptune is most responsible for human extrasensory ability.
The difference between people is where their Neptunian energy is playing out in their chart, how much of it is accessible to them and whether transiting planets are amplifying or suppressing the natal energy of Neptune.
I believe the ESI (extrasensory intelligence) is very important for astrologers and astrology students.
Relying on the pure logic of astrology techniques is inefficient in my experience and produces mistakes in readings.
Combining readings, based on astrological logic and techniques, with extrasensory readings produces the best results when we are seeking to deliver the most helpful information to our client.
When I discovered the Sabian Symbol’s technique 20 years ago, I was blown away. By 1925 Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler had invented an astrologically and ESP based technique that works both as an independent oracle as well as with horoscopes. I’ve found that this technique can be used successfully by anyone, even if the person using it does not consider himself or herself psychically sensitive or skilful. As soon as I started using this technique with some frequency, I noticed that my own intuitive abilities started developing faster. My understanding of how things work in the extrasensory realm became clear over time.
I’m surprised this technique is not more popular among practicing astrologers.
How does one identify the extrasensory abilities one has and how to develop them?
First of all, you must know that you have them even if you think you don’t. The question is: have you observed anything in your own life and behavior that resembles anything from the above-mentioned list of psychic abilities?
The most common spontaneous psychic ability that presents itself to a lot of people, even to the die-hard sceptics, has to do with sleep. Sleep puts you in a state of increased psychic openness, especially during the moments leading up to falling asleep or just waking up. These are boundary states between a conscious state of mind and being subconscious, equivalent to a deep meditation or hypnosis. When you are falling asleep the conscious mind is still active. However, the process of sensory deprivation has already begun because you are relaxed, warmed up, with eyes closed in a quiet room and the brain is zoning out from the external environment. When you are waking up, the conscious mind has just been activated, while you are still warm and comfortable and your eyes may still be closed. These are the most potent states for observing psychic data, aside from meditations and hypnosis.
A lot of interesting things can happen during those states. You can collect information from dreams, you can ask questions and receive answers, train yourself to be healthier and to improve your relationships and so forth. People have stories about having dreams that come true and some people experience lucid dreaming, when they suddenly realize that their dream is not reality and they manage to either wake up on demand or to control the dream.
If you experience something like that at least once you can build from there.
If nothing comes to mind and you still want to try to develop your psychic powers, you should join a meditation group. I do recommend joining a group over doing your own solo meditations at home. Group meditations are more powerful. You will develop your extrasensory awareness and abilities faster. There is physics behind my recommendation: group meditation creates an opportunity for an amplification of an effect via resonance. Several people meditating in the same room under the same guidance resonate similarly to a station with several antennas sending weak signals of the same frequency. The combined signal will have much greater amplitude due to the resonance and therefore have greater effect.
For ESI it’s important to understand that meditation and hypnosis are the same thing. The difference is in the use of different terms for respective different audiences. Hypnosis is allowed within the scientific community and traditional medicine. Meditation belongs with the New Age community.
There are many other ways to improve ESP. They include diet, fresh air, exercise (running and walking are best), solitude, nature, quietness, and any type of sensory deprivation.
In conclusion, I’d like to express my hope that the reader will get excited about developing his or her extrasensory intelligence. In the future more and more people will become aware of their psychic abilities. The more psychically in-tuned we are the more transparency we can enjoy in our life. If people are extremely intuitive and understanding of the big picture, it becomes harder to manipulate them and lie to them.
Imagine the world without secrets, hidden agendas, deceit, cheating…
