Did you ever feel like you've known that something was about to happen before there were any signs that it was about to occur? Have you ever had the feeling that you've been in an establishment before you've actually gone inside? If you're not skeptic about the powers of the mind, then there might just be an explanation for your seemingly coincidental premonitions. It's a phenomenon called extra sensory perception, better known as ESP.
Many people have felt goose bumps on their arms, or a bad feeling in the pit of their stomach, when something negative happens or is about to happen. This is Extra-Sensory Perception in action. The human body is comprised of energy, and the sixth sense is fine-tuned to respond to that energy.
Everyone knows about the five senses. Taste: the sense that allows us to enjoy an essential part of life, eating. Hearing: the sense that enables us to carry a conversation with each other. Sight: without this we not be able to do things we take for granted, like driving for instance. Touch: this detects pain and prevents us from injuring ourselves further. Smell: this helps us identify and enjoy the scents that are all around us. But what about a sixth sense? Well, there is indeed a sixth sense - ESP.
“Extrasensory perception” or ESP, is the ability to receive information directly with the mind. Most people use several of their five senses to take in information. Those with ESP also use what they call their sixth sense. They might also call it their gut feelings or intuitions. This sixth sense helps humans to navigate the unseen world.
EXPERIENCING SIXTH SENSE
Have you ever entered into a room and instantly noticed that something was not quite right in there? Your sixth sense was picking up on something that may not have been evident to your eyes or ears.
This extra sense informs you of things that are not always so obvious - for example, your sixth sense might sound like a voice in your head warning you not to trust someone, or you might just know that the person you just met is your soul mate.
Intuition is very often described as an “inner knowing”. It’s a means of gathering information that the regular 5 senses don’t have access to. It quite often works by giving the body warning signs or feelings that cause one to stop and pay attention.
TYPES OF ESP
Extra Sensory Perception is a collective term for various hypothetical mental abilities.
The major types of ESP are:
· Telepathy: the ability to read another person's thoughts.
· Clairvoyance: the ability to "see" events or objects happening somewhere else.
· Precognition: the ability to see the future.
· Retrocognition: the ability to see into the distant past.
· Mediumship: the ability to channel dead spirits.
· Psychometry: the ability to read information about a person or place by touching a physical object.
Where does intuition come from?
Intuition comes from within, and as we all have it, it helps us to interact with each other in a very subtle manner. Many mothers have a sixth sense, or sense of intuition, when it comes to the well-being of their children. Their intuition is very strong, and warns them, as a thought, a sense, or a feeling, that they need to act quickly in order to protect their babies.
How do you become aware of your Sixth Sense?
It is not loud and easy to detect. It is quiet, and very subtle. Therefore, to become aware of sixth sense, you must work diligently to quiet your mind and pay attention to how you feel and what peaceful and intelligent thoughts float through your mind.
The easiest way to access your sixth sense is through your imagination. That way, you’ll give yourself a free pass to experiment and play with your hunches, senses, and vibes. Notice what kind of thoughts pop into your head about certain people. Write them and see if you’re right about what you think.
7th, 8th, 9th senses?
Oddly enough, the term “sixth sense” indicates that we, as humans, have only five (or six) senses, when in actuality this is incorrect. We have at least a few other senses. Just to name a few:
· Proprioception – It is the ability to sense where your joints and body parts are in relation to other parts of your body.
· Thermoception – It is the ability to sense changes in temperature.
· Nociception – It is the ability to sense pain.
· Equilibrioception – It is the sense of balance.
