The Psychics: Can They Help You?

by Marcia Montenegro

Television psychic hotlines and shows featuring psychics have become more popular. Psychics (sometimes called clairvoyants) will tell you that everyone has psychic ability which can be developed. Just who are these psychics to tell us what is normal? Shouldn't we examine their practices, ideas, and claims, and see what God has to say about all this first?

How They Do It 

Psychic ability is developed by learning to get into an altered state of consciousness (a light trance) and opening one's mind and self to supernatural forces. The most common way one learns to do this is through certain forms of meditation or visualization (normally preceded by relaxation and/or breathing exercises) or through the use of occultic tools such as an astrology chart, a crystal ball, a numerology chart, etc., which seem to spontaneously trigger such altered mind states.

In psychic development classes in which the writer once participated, students are taught to practice various techniques of meditation, focus and visualization; sometimes this includes contacting a 'spirit guide' from another dimension. Some go deeper into this state and become a medium or channeler. They lose conscious awareness and allow a supernatural entity to take over their body and speak through them (a medium thinks the spirit is a dead person; a channeler believes it is a being from another realm, or possibly a space alien).
