How to Develop Psychic Powers

Ever get the feeling you have a paranormal ability? Hone your skills with these tips.


  • Step 1: Educate yourself Find out exactly what psychic ability you have by consulting parapsychology books and journals. Some common abilities are: clairvoyance, or perception outside normal human experience; mediumship, or communicating with the dead; psychokinesis, or the manipulation of matter and energy with the mind; and telepathy, or mind reading.
  • Step 2: Train Based on your research in parapsychology and meditation, devise tests that can be performed with a partner to learn to focus and consistently use your power.
  • Step 3: Control your mind Learn meditation and self-hypnosis to gain greater control over your mind.
  • Step 4: Keep a journal Keep a journal of your psychic experiences. Track trends and patterns to be able to better predict when your ability will manifest.
  • Step 5: Join a group If you feel your ability stems from something spiritual, like yogic flying or certain forms of faith healing, join a group of like-minded people and seek the guidance of a spiritual teacher.
  • TIP: Stay away from any institution that makes miraculous promises in exchange for large sums of money.
  • Step 6: Document your ability Document your ability with credible institutions, like universities and medical institutes that have parapsychology programs. Volunteer to display your ability, or participate in psychic tests.
  • FACT: Roughly half of all Americans believe in extra sensory perception.
