I just stumbled across the North American Psychic and Paranormal Network website and LOVED their tagline.
“We’ve been expecting you.”
(I’m laughing out loud right now!)
One of my favorite recurring tickles is driving by a hotel hosting a Psychic Fair and they’ve got a marquee sign announcing the dates. The running joke is, “Why do they need to list the dates? Won’t everyone just show up when they’re supposed to?”
The North American Psychic and Paranormal Network people get it. You’ve got to have a sense of humor.
Many people consider themselves sensitive in some way or another, but bristle when they hear the “Ps” word. I’m fond of online dictionaries so here goes…
Merriam-Webster: Psychic. Pronunciation: \?s?-kik\ Etymology: Greek psychikos of the soul, from psych? soul.
Date: 1642. Function: adjective: 1 : of or relating to the psyche 2 : lying outside the sphere of physical science or knowledge : immaterial, moral, or spiritual in origin or force. 3 : sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences : marked by extraordinary or mysterious sensitivity, perception, or understanding
Date: 1871 Function: noun: 1 : a person apparently sensitive to nonphysical forces
Conclusion: WE’RE ALL PSYCHIC .
How? Well, besides these definitions, where do you fit in these scenarios?
- Mom Hearing. You know they’re getting into something.
- They were just talking about me. That palpable silence that you can feel when you walk into a conference room.
- Women’s Intuition. That inner voice that tells her it was you who didn’t put the seat down.
- I was just thinking about you! Often heard first thing in a long overdue phone conversation.
- Don’t even think about it. Closely related to Mom Hearing.
- I just know. I just do.
These phenomena happen all day, every day, to everyone so, according to this definition, we’re psychic.
So, let’s have a sense of humor and adventure. This can be fun and exciting stuff.
What’s your psychic ability?
