Overview

The Psychic Twins have amazed audiences all over the world with their eerie predictions that have proven to be true, including the events of 9/11, the Times Square Terrorist incident, natural disasters and more. They've also worked with countless clients who report that their predictions later came to be true. Although the Twins have an undeniable gift in this area, we all have psychic capabilities— and in this book they show you how to strengthen your own, look into your future, and change your destiny.

In PSYCHIC INTELLIGENCE, Terry and Linda Jamison explain, step-by-step, how to dissolve the blocks that can prevent you from using and trusting your own intuition. By exploring what they call the Four Clairs: clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance, you will be able to tap into these feelings and in turn:

—Create strong and worthwhile relationships, including finding true love
—Attract wealth and abundance
-Know when to make a career change, and what the new path should be
—Experience vibrant health
—Discover your authentic self and life's purpose

Now, at a time of real economic and social uncertainty, when hope is needed and so many are feeling confused and fearful, PSYCHIC INTELLIGENCE will show readers that we all have the power to tap into and control our own destiny.

PART I

THE PSYCHIC IN ALL OF US

Most people associate intelligence with our ability to acquire knowledge on a conscious level. But psychic intelligence has more to do with a profound, subconscious knowing that transcends time and space. We are professional psychics, but every single one of you also has the ability to tap into this higher source of knowing and to use that information to create a better life for yourself. Why, then, isn’t everyone using this innate gift to the best of their ability?

To begin this book, we’ll explain why you may have lost touch with your own psychic intelligence and what you can do to get it back.

You’ve got it; all you need are the tools to recognize and cultivate it, and the courage and self-confidence to put it into action.

The Psychic Twins—Who We Are and What We Do

You may think that because we are identical twins and share the same DNA we’re naturally more telepathic than most. And in fact, we do have twin telepathic experiences on a daily basis. We don’t need BlackBerrys or iPhones to communicate with each other; we use “TwinBerry” mental telepathy.

But according to Guy Lyon Playfair, a researcher of the paranormal and author of Twin Telepathy, only about 30 percent of twins have actually experienced a telepathic connection while the vast majority have no particular psychic bond between them. We, however, were born not only with the ability to communicate psychically with each other, but also with abilities that reach beyond our twinship, which enable us to be reliably psychic for anyone at any time.

In West Chester, the small Pennsylvania farming town where we grew up, no one had ever heard of—much less met—a psychic, and so for a long time neither we nor our family and friends thought much about our abilities. Although both our parents were artists—our father, Philip Jamison, is a master watercolorist and national academician, and our mother was also a gifted painter—they were in many ways quite conservative. While they applauded our inherited artistic talents, they tended to either dismiss or discourage our ability to “know” things we had no way of knowing.

The first psychic experience either one of us can recall occurred when we were five and Terry won a prize at her school fair for correctly naming the exact number of jellybeans in a jar. She didn’t just guess the closest number—she was exactly right. Later, as teenagers, we started predicting what our friends’ careers would be—although we didn’t learn until many years after that our predictions had come true. Still, we always had the sense that we would become famous artists and designers, and we didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about how or why we seemed to know or predict things other people simply could not foresee.

It wasn’t until our mid-teens, when we started to experience a series of baffling and debilitating health issues, that we began our continuing quest for spiritual knowledge. It was that ongoing search that eventually led us to discover the Buddhist philosophy and practice that provided us with spiritual sustenance during those years of physical pain, as it continues to do today.

All our lives, we believed there was a philosophy that could help us find answers. We had already tried many different meditation techniques and spiritual practices when our friend Susan invited us to attend a Buddhist meeting. We found ourselves sitting on the floor of someone’s small apartment, surrounded by people facing a scroll in a box on the wall and chanting in a language we didn’t understand. Their combined voices chanting in total harmony sounded very much like music. But it was the genuine excitement of the people sharing their personal experiences and the benefits they’d received from the practice that impressed us the most. These people had an irrepressible spirit, fueled by their faith that any obstacle could be overcome. Somehow we knew this was the practice that was going to help us. Since that first meeting, Buddhism has empowered us to discover new dimensions of courage, strength, and resilience we never knew we had.

Still, the path that eventually led to our current work has been neither straightforward nor easy. After graduating high school, we studied painting and sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and we received BFA degrees in painting and art education from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in Philadelphia. Then, after college, we moved to New York City and began our careers as comedic performance artists. We started our own company called Pop Theatrics, and we entertained at events for luminaries such as Bob Hope, Luciano Pavarotti, Jacqueline Onassis, Donald Trump, and Cher, and at the White House for then-president Ronald Reagan and his wife. We even starred in a short film written especially for us that aired on Saturday Night Live. This was a huge honor and definitely one of the highlights of our theatrical career. Every comic dreams of being on SNL, and we got on the show without even auditioning!

After twelve years in New York, we moved to Los Angeles hoping to further our television and film careers as comic actresses. As we honed our stand-up act at the Improv and the Comedy Store in Hollywood, we were also, quietly and deliberately, developing our innate abilities as psychics and mediums. Although we’d been practicing tuning in to our intuition for some time, we became especially interested in psychic work in our twenties. Having spent years battling chronic illness and pain, we instinctively knew that the medications our doctors had been prescribing weren’t helping us, and we believed we could use our psychic abilities to discover a more healing path.

To get the answers we needed, we began to work with a pendulum (a form of dowsing that’s similar to using a Y-shaped stick or rod to find water or metal in the ground). We would hold the pendulum dangling from a string and ask questions with simple yes or no answers, such as whether a particular medicine or therapy would be positive for us, or whether we should take a particular job. Having decided that a yes answer would make the pendulum circle clockwise and a no answer would cause it to circle counterclockwise, we gave ourselves that autosuggestion. To give yourself an autosuggestion, you simply have a clear intention and state out loud the outcome you’ve decided upon—in this case that the pendulum’s circling clockwise would indicate yes, and its circling counterclockwise would indicate no. Early on, we would even take the pendulum to the grocery store and ask it whether or not a particular food would be beneficial to our health. Many years ago, our friends were trying to talk us out of moving to Los Angeles, but when we asked the pendulum if we should move, the answer was a clear yes. California has now been our home for twenty years.

At the same time we were working with the pendulum to figure out how to improve our health, we also worked extensively with alternative therapies, including Chinese medicine, acupuncture, classical homeopathy, various forms of chiropractic, countless special diets, and different types of prayer and meditation. We even went to shamanic healers. In the end, we became our own best diagnosticians, and in the process discovered what would become an important aspect of our life’s work, which is medical intuition. Our heightened awareness of illness made us especially sensitive to others’ diseases and disorders, and we have been doing medical intuitive work for many years now. (For more on this, see Chapter Ten.)

We’d been making predictions for friends and using our psychic abilities for years without really thinking of them as anything special when, one day, we were sitting at a charming little place called The Rose Café in Venice Beach, California, and Linda began spontaneously writing on a napkin. The words seemed to come out of nowhere, and before she knew it she’d filled five napkins with writing. At the time, she really had no idea what was happening, but we later learned she had been in a state that’s known as a “conscious trance” and doing channeled or automatic writing. When we returned home, Terry felt compelled to try automatic writing, too. She soon realized that she also had this gift, which ultimately became, and still remains, our primary tool for receiving psychic information about the past, present, and future. Interestingly, Terry’s automatic handwriting looks quite different from Linda’s. Linda’s writing is loopy and embellished with elaborate flourishes and curlicues, very much like a medieval manuscript. Terry’s writing is a smaller script, with flat lines and words sometimes joined together. It somewhat resembles an earthquake seismogram. Neither of these writing styles bears much resemblance to our normal writing.

Shortly after we moved to Los Angeles we figured out that there weren’t many acting jobs calling for adult twins (unless your last name was Barbi and you worked with a stripper pole), but our psychic reputation was spreading by word of mouth, mostly through friends, and eventually we posted a tiny ad for our services in a small local publication. Much to our surprise, a producer for NBC television saw it and called us. After asking us to confirm that we were really twins and really psychics, she challenged us to do a spontaneous reading for her over the phone, which we did. She told us that we had just given her the most accurate reading she’d ever had, and invited us to appear with Sylvia Browne (who was, at the time, probably the best-known psychic in the country) and three other intuitives on an NBC program called The Other Side. It was the first of three appearances on that show, and we diagnosed people’s illnesses on the air, with a respected doctor verifying our accuracy. The Psychic Twins were off and running!

Over the years we’ve appeared on more than one hundred television and radio programs and starred in fifteen documentary films profiling our psychic gifts. And we have made countless public predictions of world events—most notably the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM radio program on November 2, 1999—that have cemented our reputation and made us the most documented psychics in the world. We’ve assisted law enforcement in solving murder cases, reunited families, predicted all kinds of natural disasters, and even diagnosed serious medical conditions and diseases.

But it’s the work we do quietly and in private that has been our greatest reward. For more than twenty-five years now we have helped thousands of clients all over the world to gain insight into their past, better understand their present, and determine their true purpose. Our role, as we see it, is to shine a light into the darkness of the unknown so that people are better able to trust their own intuition, understand the mysterious world in which we live, gain a new perspective that allows them to make better choices, and create a more authentic and meaningful life for themselves.

Rather than simply persuading or convincing others of our predictive “rightness,” we seek to enroll and empower them to discover for themselves what is possible on a personal and spiritual level. Our intention is to be the bridge that allows people to feel more connected, not only with one another but also with the energy of the Universe. We know that what we do is serious business, and while we go about it with humor as well as compassion, we always take it very seriously. Being a good psychic medium requires courage, intelligence, integrity, and most important, heart.

For us, tapping into the psychic energy of the Universe is as natural as breathing. It’s no more difficult than turning on the radio, tuning in, and receiving information. We know that’s not always easy for most people to believe, much less achieve. But we also know that everyone has some innate level of intuitive ability, and our goal in this book is to help you discover and nurture your own (natural) supernatural talents. You, too, can access this higher level of understanding that will allow you to unleash your true unlimited potential.

In the following chapters we’ll explain the factors that may have been preventing you from accessing your own psychic intelligence, how you can overcome those stumbling blocks, and what you can do to enhance the intuitive abilities you were born with. Not all psychics receive information the same way. As you’ll be learning, some people are better at receiving psychic information in auditory form, others “see” mental images, some people are more emotionally sensory, and still others simply “know” what’s coming to them from the spirit world. These four ways of getting in touch with your psychic intelligence are what we call “the four Clairs,” and we’ll be showing you how to determine where your particular psychic talents lie. Once you know that, you’ll not only be able to tap into whatever turns out to be your primary source of wisdom, but you’ll also be able to use the methods we’ll provide to enhance those areas where you may be less innately intuitive.

We’ll help you become more adept at peeking around corners to see both the warning signs and the positive signals the Universe is sending your way. We’ll provide you with all the psychic tools you need to define your dreams and ambitions so that you can discover your true life purpose, enhance your love life, improve personal relationships, enjoy vibrant good health, and bring more wealth and abundance into your life.

A friend once told us, “You are two of the few people I know who are truly living an authentic life.” It was a great compliment, and hard won. But we are here to tell you that if you just listen to that still, small voice within you and use the tools we provide, you, too, will find your wondrous authentic path and become the person you were meant to be.

Psychic Intelligence 101

Many people these days have lost touch with their own intuitive abilities and are extremely skeptical of anyone’s ability to access any higher source of knowledge. As a culture, we seem to be paranormally challenged. We have become so dependent on modern technology and scientific proof that we no longer understand or appreciate the kind of spirit wisdom that was venerated by our ancestors. We are so preoccupied with the material world that we discount as superstition or fantasy the divine and subtle magical phenomena that were rich and natural parts of all ancient cultures.

What we now refer to casually—even dismissively—as “woman’s intuition” was once valued as a profound source of knowledge. But according to the sociologist and cultural historian Riane Eisler, there has been a global shift from spiritual, egalitarian, nonviolent goddess-worshipping societies to patriarchal societies over the last six thousand years. The ancient matriarchal societies, based on partnership and creativity, were much more spiritually evolved than the technological societies of today. Over time, however, empathy, intuition, and a connection with nature—values that were and still are associated with women—were suppressed in favor of the logical, linear thinking associated with masculinity.

Whereas women were initially revered as intuitive healers, beginning in the late Middle Ages, Church-educated male “physicians” began to take over this traditionally female role. Channelers, healers, seers, and psychics of all kinds were labeled “witches” because of their ability to communicate with other realms, and, under Church auspices, millions of women were hunted down, tortured, and killed for practicing healing and intuitive arts.

Our intention is not to pit women against men, but to help you understand that there are two basic ways of acquiring knowledge. One is linear and logical; the other is spiritual and intuitive. True wisdom resides in the ability to appreciate and access the power of both. The two of us are often criticized and even ridiculed for what we do and for helping others to understand that these abilities exist. Nevertheless, we have proved it, and now we are sharing our secrets with you. To us, paranormal is the “new” normal!

Twintuition Tip:

Open your mind to expand your life.

Objection! Overruled!

In the fifteenth century, during the Inquisition, Nostradamus, who was predicting the future through pagan oracles, feared persecution and had to obscure his predictions by using anagrams, transposed letters, plays on words, and other cryptic methods in order to avoid imprisonment or being executed as a heretic. In a letter to his son, Cesar, he wrote, “I really did not want to write the documentations down concerning the future, mainly because of the insults I will earn…. The present form of governing parties will undergo tremendous changes in the future…. This is the reason why I mystified the real sense of my quatrains.”

In the seventeenth century, Galileo, the father of modern astronomy, was considered a heretic and thrown into prison for suggesting that the sun rather than the earth was, in fact, at the center of the Universe. Skeptics and naysayers flatly refused to look through his telescope to see for themselves that he was right.

Today, many skeptics similarly refuse to look through our lens to see if there might be some truth to what we experience in the metaphysical world. They would rather reject even the possibility of an expanded reality than have to question and reevaluate their own long-held beliefs.

People often ask us why we don’t respond to skeptics. Our answer is that no matter how many successful predictions we make, nothing is going to change their minds—and, therefore, cause them to admit they were wrong. Skeptics tend to reflexively condemn anything that strikes them as unorthodox or foreign. People tend to be afraid of what they don’t understand, and we’ve found that the biggest skeptics are often those who feel threatened by their own intuitive potential, who shut down, and who then project their resentment onto us. They’re resentful because they can’t do what we do, which is silly and unfair. After all, they’re the ones preventing themselves from becoming more intuitive. Or, to put it another way, we can’t fix cars, but we’re not resentful of car mechanics.

There was one time, however, when Linda found herself in the deep end of the jury pool (so to speak) and felt it necessary to respond. When she was called for jury duty a few years ago, she was impaneled on a criminal case, and when it was her turn to be questioned during the voir dire the judge asked her to describe her occupation. “I’m a professional clairvoyant and psychic detective,” Linda answered, much to the judge’s amusement. “Well, this is a first in my courtroom!” he exclaimed. “Do you have a psychic feeling about this trial’s outcome?” And she said that indeed she did. The other jurors were giggling and the accused looked uncomfortable, but the attorneys were not amused. They began to cross-examine Linda as if she were the one on trial. The first lawyer to question her simply couldn’t understand why she wouldn’t be able to make a judgment based solely on the evidence presented in court. When Linda said she had a “sixth sense” that would make it difficult for her not to share her “gut feelings” with her fellow jurors during deliberation, he was really annoyed. The real kicker, however, came when a young female attorney, who obviously thought she was being very clever, smugly asked Linda to “predict” what her next question was going to be. There were audible gasps, but Linda, undaunted, proceeded to boldly predict exactly what the woman’s next question would be. Obviously, she got it right because the red-haired lawyer’s face turned bright crimson, and she stammered, “I have no more questions, Your Honor.” Shortly thereafter Linda was dismissed. That experience just reinforced our long-held understanding that there are still many, many people who continue to doubt and get spooked by the validity of psychic intelligence.

It is almost shocking to see how stubbornly resistant people can be to acknowledging psychic abilities, even when the evidence is staring them in the face. But experiences such as Linda’s have only served to galvanize our resolve and reinforce our steadfast intention to bring our work as teachers and intuitives into the world, even if it means encountering skeptics and naysayers who refuse to understand. These experiences simply show us how necessary our mission to educate people really is.

For the truly faithful, no miracle is necessary. For those who doubt, no miracle is sufficient.

—Nancy Gibbs

Five Psychic “Myth-Understandings”

We believe that much of the skepticism about psychics stems from the fact that there are so many misunderstandings and myths about what psychics do or should do. These are just a few that we’ve come up against over and over again:

Myth #1: Psychics Were Not Mentioned in the Bible, the Torah, or Buddhist Teachings, So Believing in Psychic Phenomena Must Be Sacrilegious

Contrary to popular belief, many world religions and traditions have stories of prophecies and seers.

The Old Testament contains many stories of major prophets, including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel, along with those of literally scores of minor prophets. To take just a few examples, the Bible says that three wise men were guided by the North Star, on the advice of Isaiah, who also predicted the birth of the Messiah, which is a medieval term for “psychic.” Numbers 11:25 states: “And the Lord came down in a cloud, and spake unto him [Moses], and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.” In Exodus 15:20 Miriam is referred to as a prophetess, as is Deborah in Judges 4:4. And 1 Chronicles 25:3 states that the sons of Jeduthun “prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and praise to the Lord.”

In Buddhism the Buddha Nichiren predicted calamities in various sutras. For example, The Sutra of Golden Light (or Sutra of Golden Splendor) asserts that the four heavenly kings will abandon a nation whose rulers do not propagate the Dharma (the cosmic order or law). The Great Collection Sutra (or Sutra of the Great Assembly) predicts famine, war, epidemics, and other apocalyptic events if the ruler does not prevent the Dharma from perishing. And The Benevolent Kings Sutra predicts the departing of sages and the coming of seven calamities of a human, natural, and astronomical nature.

In modern times, the foundation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is based upon the prophecies of Joseph Smith, whom Mormons consider to be a modern prophet.

Myth #2: Psychics Should Know Everything

This is a surprisingly common misconception. Professional psychics are not omniscient, and should not claim to be! If we were omniscient, we would be God. And we would charge about a million dollars an hour. Along the same line, psychics can rarely predict the exact date and time when an event will occur. It is more realistic to expect a potential time frame. The future is fluid, and there is no absolute reality. The future is not written in stone. With our free will and intention, we can actually influence events, outcomes, and their timing. We can even change our destiny. In fact, the tools we give you in this book are designed to help you do just that.

Nevertheless, when we’re appearing on live television, we are always held to the highest standards and expected to be perfect. TV producers and interviewers want us to spout astonishing revelations as if we were Nostradamus on a caffeine high. No pressure, right? Knowing that we can’t control which spirit energies come through makes it that much harder to deliver what’s expected of us on camera, when millions of viewers are judging us with a critical eye. We’re sometimes tempted to ask the host whether he or she would expect a brain surgeon to perform neurosurgery on cue during a TV interview.

As psychics, we process all the information we receive through our human filters and past experiences, just as a portrait painter has his own personal style and way of interpreting his subject. We get what we get. For a lot of reasons, no one can predict every single major event that will happen in someone’s life in sixty minutes or less.

In addition, some clients come for a reading with the tacit expectation that they will be assured of their future happiness, riches, fame, a gorgeous and caring soul mate, robust health and longevity, and—oh yes—a guest spot on The Tonight Show.

No psychic can guarantee your future, and if any psychic promises you that it will be perfect, you should probably ask for your money back. We can offer spiritual tools you can use to mitigate or circumvent a negative event or experience, but, as we’ve said, you have free will, and we can’t follow you around like the medium portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg in the movie Ghost to make sure you are making the best and wisest choices for your life. While we do believe that we all come into this life with a soul blueprint—including who our parents will be, who our children will be, our careers, the major life lessons we’ll learn—already mapped out, we also believe that there is no such thing as a fixed or absolute reality. The future is malleable, or, as it is put in Buddhism, “mutable.”

Once a woman came to us and we gave her detailed guidance about her career, her relationships, her past lives, and what she might have coming up within the next few years. She seemed pleased and left with a spring in her step. The next day she called and said in a testy tone, “Why didn’t you tell me that I was pregnant?” We had to laugh, because it made us feel that some people will never be satisfied with a reading no matter how much help you try to give them. They simply are not ready to accept the gift.

As spiritual counselors, we teach people—as we will be teaching you—how to maximize their individual potential and increase their chances of success. It is, however, totally unreasonable for people to expect a psychic to divine every detail of their past, present, and future lives.

Myth #3: Psychics Should Be Able to Predict Lotto Numbers

We once heard a famous talk show host say that she thought psychics were all frauds because if they were truly psychic, they would automatically win the lottery and, therefore, be extremely wealthy. Once again, psychics are not omniscient. Also, as we have often said, our gift is for other people: to help them live better lives, make wiser choices, and find their authentic path. It is not about becoming wealthy.

Myth #4: Mediums Are More Gifted Than Psychics

It is a myth that “mediums” (people who connect directly with the energies of specific individuals who have passed over) are somehow more gifted than “psychics” (people who have the ability to predict future events or describe past lifetimes, for example). This is like saying that singers are more gifted than dancers. In both cases, the information is coming from the world of spirit, even though the messengers and methods of delivery may differ.

In fact, some people have both abilities. We, for example, practice mediumship and predict future events. One is not necessarily a more advanced gift than the other. They both involve a certain level of skill and the ability to tap into higher dimensions or energy fields.

Myth #5: Psychics Shouldn’t Charge for What They Do Because Their Ability Is a Spiritual Gift

This myth may stem from the old belief that money is “the root of all evil” and a truly spiritual person must give of him-or herself with no expectation of getting anything in exchange. Baloney! Intuitive counseling is a valuable service and no less worthy than any other form of counseling. A good psychic reading can be life-changing. Talented psychic readers deserve to be fairly compensated for their time, experience, and expertise. In addition, if there is no monetary investment, the client might not take the reading as seriously and could very well dismiss the guidance altogether.

How to Spot a Fake Psychic

Now that you know what a psychic should or should not be expected to do, you’ll be better able to spot the genuine article and avoid being taken in by a fake. There isn’t any licensing exam for psychics, and many people have been burned by con artists. Every field has its share of unscrupulous people who exploit others, and the psychic world is no different. But there are plenty of warning signs that should tip you off.

  • A fake psychic may tell you that you have a curse, a dark cloud, or negative energy that he or she needs to clear with the use of rituals or the burning of special candles (at a hefty additional price!).

  • A fake psychic has no track record of publicly documented accurate predictions (their own blog page doesn’t count). Many claim to have predicted major world events but have no way to prove it. Don’t let a flashy website fool you! Check the practitioner’s credentials, and if you have any doubts, try to get a good reference from someone you trust.

  • Fakes often call themselves hokey names like “Spirit Warrior,” “Psychic Sonia,” “Madame Rose,” “Aura Star,” “Rainbow,” “Light Goddess,” and so forth. Use caution in believing their inflated claims.

  • They may tell you that “you will come into a lot of money soon” or “there is money around you” but make no mention of how the money will manifest itself.

  • Fake psychics often claim to be able to reunite you with a lost love. No one can do that but you! If he or she left, it may be a good thing!

  • A fake psychic will often say he or she is “world-renowned” or “famous” without having any evidence or documented accomplishments to substantiate that claim.

  • Fake psychics don’t predict probable dates, times, or locations. They speak in vague generalities like “He’s coming, I can see him… He’s right around the corner… You won’t be alone.” Or “I see trains, planes, and bridges.” A prediction that is so generalized it could apply to anyone, anywhere, at any time isn’t really a prediction at all.

Use Your Inner Crystal Ball

There are so many charlatans in the business that it can be difficult to know whether or not a professed psychic or medium is ethical or sincere. But just because you may have had a bad experience with one person, we hope that you won’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, as they say. Be willing to open your mind to the existence of legitimate psychic intelligence and give yourself the opportunity to experience and benefit from your own psychic gifts. If you believe that you might have intuitive abilities, you are opening the door; if you believe that you don’t and will never have such gifts, you’re making sure that you’ll never find out!

Open Your Mind to the Wisdom of a Higher Intelligence

Interestingly, it’s the modern science of quantum physics that has taught us energy never dies, it just keeps changing form, and everything, including our thoughts, has energy. What this means is that the energy of all the thoughts of all humankind still exists as a kind of universal consciousness that we can tap into for guidance. Since ancient times there have been various terms used to describe this universal source of knowledge that is outside of time and space, but it is a concept that has persisted throughout recorded history—from the Unus mundus to Carl Jung’s collective unconscious to postmodern superstring theory. According to the writer and philosopher Terence McKenna, “The substance of the universe is consciousness, not matter.” Our thoughts and the universal reality we live in can be compared to a kind of cosmic soup composed of an infinite number of invisible energy fields that contain infinite amounts of information. We humans are constantly downloading, decoding, and interpreting this information with our five senses in the same way that a computer downloads and decodes information from cyberspace.

As humans, we identify so strongly with our bodies and our finite, tangible world that we come to believe it is the only reality. Yet there are myriad realities and dimensions that we simply cannot perceive with our physical senses. Our higher intelligence vibrates at a higher frequency than our everyday thoughts and is what allows us to tap into this collective universal consciousness. We can all use our sixth sense to develop our brains and hearts so that we are able to access that universal consciousness and become dynamic filters for psychic intelligence.

You are an infinite, limitless, immortal, universal and eternal energy temporarily residing in a body. You know that nothing dies, that everything is an energy that is constantly changing.

—Wayne Dyer, Manifest Your Destiny

    Decent

    it starts getting interesting around part 2 of the book. They have a way of writing that feels natural and easy. i feel like they're talking directly to me. They tell things like talk to angels, notice the numbers around you, call upon your spirite guides.. as if it were so easy! they give suggestions how to do so & make it seem like things will workout the first time.. but no so easy. I like this book though. may even read it again

    Helped me help myself...

    Ever since i can remember, i've had so many psychic and paranormal experiences. I've had no psychic mentors to r,teach me about it. Books and articles made it sound hokey and just didn't make sense. My parents thought it was against god to seek guidance on the subject. Finally, accepting my gifts fully, i read this amazing book. While it's true, if you don't really have any paranormal experiences in your life, you might get bored. However, for someone who needs answers and guidance, like myself, it is a great book. Very helpful! Thank you so much.

    psychic twinge

    When i first started delving into the psychic book field i knew i wanted to get a book that was easy yet fun to understand and ,at the same time, provide me with the drive necessary to move forward in my constant spiritual endeavors. On the surface, this book appears very much like many of the book written for this particular subject matter. emphasizing very much the same basic principles, meditations, affirmations, high self, and god, that other books emphasized. One of the things i like about psychic intelligence, is through each chapter about psychic abilities they give you a little test to determine if that is your strongest ability, and give you various simple exercises designed to help develop them and advance further. The authors of this book bring their religion of Buddhism and suggest doing things like "mindful eating" where the idea is to be more in the moment and not preoccupied with the future or the past. Overall, this book was ok for me, i would look through it for information as a different perspective, but it would not be my go to book.
