Summary

Many people have experienced psi, whether as a sense of having been in a place before (déjà vu), hearing a voice in their head that gave them guidance, or following their intuition. For some, these events can be attributed to coincidence, but for psychics, such episodes occur more frequently and intensely, often manifesting in dreams, trances, signs, or sensations.

ESP, Psychokinesis, and Psychics explores the people who profess to have such talents and surveys the different ways of reading psychic signs. It examines the skeptics and organizations who investigate supernatural phenomena and expose possible fraud and looks at how the media portray psychic phenomena in everything from Harry Potter gazing into the Pensieve to TV shows like Ghost Whisperer and Medium to psychic crime fighters. This fascinating resource also gives readers the information they need to test and develop their own psychic abilities.

Chapters include:

  • Psychics: Who Are They and What Do They Do?
  • Psychic Abilities, or How Do They Do That?
  • Testing, Testing, or Does Psi Really Exist?
  • Becoming a Psychic
  • Talking—and Listening—to the Animals.
