Why do I feel like I have psychic abilities?
I feel like I have psychic abilities but I just dont know how to use them. I feel like I need to learn them, this is very hard to explain. Who should I go to get help for this and how can I improve them? No skeptics please. Thanks!

I actually practice psychic abilities. Really everyone has them it just takes the practice and patients to control them and use them to your advantage. If you really want a deeper understanding you should check out this website: psipog.net

I suppose you feel that you have psychic abilities because you are fooling yourself like all the other people that like to imagine that have magical powers.
Now instead of saying “no skeptics” just go ahead and do something to prove you have the abilities you claim and then no one need be skeptical any more.

Just keep an open mind unlike the skeptics who cannot stay away even when asked politely.

Why is it that people believe women are more open to psychic abilities?
I have heard that women are just naturally more open to their psychic abilities and esp type of things. What makes that so?
Suggestion by ZelosWilder
In general, women have richer fantasy lives. So they’re more willing to believe that they are psychic.
Suggestion by Anonymous
Women are more observant of body language, tone, and movement.
It isn’t that women are “More Open” to anything, it is just that women are WAY MORE innately aware of things that men are not DESIGNED to notice.
It goes along with the idea of “Cold Reading”. You ask questions, watch reactions, and then tailor your response to those reactions.
Women exist on more then 1 level… We see the “Big Stuff” like cars and trees and people… But we have a 2nd level that is even more observant then what we consciously see.
Men are designed to be able to find the deer in the brush…
Women are designed to read the look on their child’s face and understand what they are feeling and, to a lesser extent, what they are thinking.
We are not even really “Aware” that all this extra analysis is going on… It just happens as instinctually as birds know to fly south…
“Normal” women just go with it and accept it as the natural, biological ability that it is…
People with low self esteem or that crave attention or have no problem screwing money out of gullible people… They are another animal all together…
THEY take “I knew my best friend was going to call and that my father was going to tell me that something bad had happened” from normal and put such greater meanings on it that they CONVINCE THEMSELVES that they have “powers’.
Most of these people TRULY THINK they have powers… You hear it all the time even here on Y!A…
“I have the gift and I never ask for money, you don’t know what you are talking about.” Etc.
People that NEED MORE in their lives may turn to religion and say they see Jesus in the wood grain on their bathroom door…
As seen here:
Penn & Teller: Signs from Heaven Part 1
Penn & Teller: Signs from Heaven Part 2
Penn & Teller: Signs from Heaven Part 3
Then others delude themselves that they have magic powers that make them “Special”.
It all boils down to the NEED to feel special… And be that “Special” in the eyes of their god or “Special” as in “I can see the future and talk to dead people” it is all the same…
A desperate cry for attention.

I think that psychic abilities are felt through your emotional level of feeling.

What is the difference between hallucinating and psychic ability?
And what I mean by the psychic ability, I mean like seeing the dead or spirits and other stuff like that. You know what I mean? How can you determine if someone is just hallucinating or actually has psychic abilities?
Suggestion by Stacie C
If someone has abilities, they would most likely be very hush hush about it. A good way to find out is to see if the person has done anything that would give them hallucinations. Drugs? Mental Illness? Lack of sleep? History of mental illness in the family?
Suggestion by Tukmyhamster
In my opinion no one has psychic abilities, since such an ability has never been shown to be real when tested under controlled conditions on the other hand I don’t think the majority of people that claim to be psychic are hallucinating either. To me it seems more like wishful thinking, imagining things, and bending the data.
People make a few general guesses, remember the things they get right and mentally discard the things they get wrong so in the end they are left with the idea that they are getting a load of magical messages from the beyond.
There’s plenty of people who claim to be psychics or mediums but watch how they wiggle away when you ask for something to prove what they say.
Suggestion by Richard Fleming
hallucinating usually comes from some form of brain mis-function or something else to cause the brain to hallucinate or the other possibility is the use of different drugs. psychic ability is something that i don’t put much stock in. most people that claim this ability are either seriously deceived or living in a constant state of hallucination.
