Are Psychic Abilities Real? Fact or Belief?


A lot of people ask, “are psychic abilities real?” So, I decided to write something about it.

I am a Tarot card reader with psychic abilities. As such, I didn’t want to approach the subject strictly from my own experiences or even my perceptions, rather, a more balanced approach. This includes citing previous and current scientific research on psychic abilities. I am also assuming that we are talking about legitimate Tarot card readers, real phone psychics, and true psychic abilities, not charlatans or phony psychics, who falsely claim psychic abilities.

If you were to ask me the question, “are psychic abilities real?” Of course, I would factually say yes! I can recall personal experiences as early as the age of seven, which only intensified as I got older. I would imagine millions of others can recall their own experiences too. However, if you ask some others, they will say, no, psychic abilities are not real. What is a major cause for the disparity? Fact or belief?

There is wonderful research being done at The Institute of Noetic Sciences, which includes promising studies on consciousness, psychic abilities, the paranormal and other metaphysical subjects. Of which, chief scientist Dean Radin is a big part.

Quantum entanglement might prove interesting too, in that it reveals how we are connected to each other and everything else. Psychic abilities or energy is exactly that: One’s ability to connect to another, or situations, events, etc., and it matters not the distance.

Journal of Scientific Exploration: An Assessment of the Evidence for Psychic Functioning, Jessica Utts, Division of Statistics, University of California, Davis, CA, said:

“Using the standards applied to any other area of science, it is concluded that psychic functioning has been well established. The statistical results of the studies examined are far beyond what is expected by chance. Arguments that these results could be due to methodological flaws in the experiments are soundly refuted.”

There was also a 20-year, $20 million research program funded by various U.S. intelligence agencies, known as Stargate:

“Secret government experiments on “psychic spying” have produced the most credible evidence to date that humans have paranormal abilities, according to two academic experts who recently reviewed previously classified U.S. government research.”

Are psychic abilities real? The U.S. Government seems to think so.

I would say that science is finally catching up to what many of us have always known: Psychic abilities are real.

Psychic Abilities? Which Side of your Brain are you Asking?


Are psychic abilities real or imaginary? If you ask your left brain, they are probably imaginary. If you ask your right, they are real. Which side of your brain are you asking?

Regarding psychic abilities, it comes down to the age-old battle between the right brain belief and the left brain fact, with armies on both sides of the fence. It’s no different to arguing about the existence of a God or superior intelligence.

Our left brain loves logic, facts, and all things to be linear−it wants proof. Our right brain loves creativity, feelings and trusting intuition−it believes.

When it comes to questioning whether psychic abilities are real, the more left-brained among us scream for proof and the right-brained quietly know.

The thing with belief and fact is that both can be rapidly interchangeable, just as our brain works. People who have unexplainable psychic experiences don’t believe−they know as fact that psychic abilities are real. Whereas some scientific or skeptical communities will find every explanation as to why psychic abilities aren’t factual, and back up their claims by saying that it cannot be proved.

What skeptics fail to admit are those times when they’re so-called ‘fact’, which was based on ‘proof’, changes. Therefore, it couldn’t have been a provable fact in the first place. At the time, it was only believed to be true. This is the case with many scientific discoveries. With new or newer information, research or discoveries are subject to change. Given that the government research was classified, maybe we should question why? What is the purpose of keeping psychic abilities, or that human beings possess them, a secret?

Since we have valid and solid research on psychic abilities, you would think this would create more of an open mind and less rigidity for future explorations, but it doesn’t. The left brain continues to be rigid, even in the face of being proved wrong, and yes, this applies to right brained folks too. Rigidity is the enemy of knowledge.

Staunchly being behind one side of a fence, doesn’t allow seeing what is on the other side. Such is the nature of the battle that continues to ensue. As it is with the existence of God, or not, some science or skeptical minds still claim psychic abilities can’t be proven, therefore, are not real, and those who experience psychic ability, claim psychic abilities are real, and say it can’t be disproved either.

Are psychic abilities real? Stalemate.

I think Robert Wright says it best:

“Of course, you can argue with the proposition that all we are is genes and environment. You can insist that there’s something more. But if you try to visualize the form this something would take, or articulate it clearly, you’ll find the task impossible, for any force that is not in the genes or the environment is outside of physical reality as we perceive it. It’s beyond scientific discourse—this doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Left Brain, Right Brain.


Are psychic abilities real? The battle rages between facts and creativity/imagination.

As the chart below indicates, left brained folks need facts and logic—it needs to compute. Nothing wrong with that. We all need things to make sense. That’s how the conscious mind works (left brain). However, even the most scientific and demanding of facts among us, utilizes the right brain too (subconscious mind). Creativity and potential reside there, and this is where ideas (creativity/imagination) emanate.

In my opinion, it is from the unconscious mind where psychic abilities emanate, which are likely filtered through the subconscious, and if we are paying attention, our conscious mind will grasp the psychic information provided.

Without the creative impulse to imagine a possibility or potential (all right brain activities), a scientist would have little to work with. They couldn’t begin to test or prove anything without the “idea” of it to begin with. Scientists need their right brain!

Psychic Abilities

The problem with too much left brain thinking and the need for everything to compute, leaves no room for comprehension that, “any force that is not in the genes or the environment is outside of physical reality as we perceive it. It’s beyond scientific discourse—this doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” Psychic abilities are real, and a force that no one completely understands. Can we leave it at that?

We are constantly discovering new things, often believed non-existent or impossible (until discovery). As such, to make any absolute claims of non-existence or impossibility is ridiculous, because it likely always existed, and therefore, was possible. It was simply not known or fully understood—yet. This is exactly what occurs regarding psychic abilities. Except of course, there is some reason to keep psychic abilities and our possession of them a secret—as we have already noted.

We rely on our sciences to help us understand our world and us in it. Therefore, we have given the scientific community a great deal of power. What they determine is king. It is science that we quote when we want to attest to what is, and what is not. Mainstream science still denounces psychic abilities; however, research done at esteemed universities say differently.

However, seen from a different perspective, science is in its infancy. In truth, it knows very little and what it “knows” is subject to change with newer discoveries. As such, with regard to psychic ability or whether psychic abilities are real, it is an ongoing topic of new discoveries.

As it stands, psychic abilities cannot be tested with any regularity to a “scientific standard.” This only means that science needs to revise the standard by which it tests, not denounce the existence of psychic abilities.

Since we all use both sides of our brains, why argue? Why not adopt the philosophy of acceptance? None of us really knows anything due to constant changes. Why not remain open to possibilities? Or, if one knows that psychic abilities are real, they are. If one feels psychic abilities are not real, they aren’t. Let everyone be.

Are psychic abilities real? Personally, I don’t need anyone to vouch for or question what I know to be true in my own heart, mind, and physical reality−psychic abilities are real. If anyone does feel the need to disprove it, my guess is they can’t wrap their heads around not being the center of the Universe—or they simply need to be an authority—and I say, “go for it,” or better yet, ask a psychic. 😉
