Everyone Has Psychic Powers! What They Are and Where They Are From

Do you have psychic powers? If you think the answer is no…

Think again.

The truth is, everyone has psychic powers.  Believe it or not, every human has within him or her the ability to use psychic energy and take advantage of psychic energy for creative purposes.  Even children have these abilities.  The problem is that we don’t realize that we possess this potential – and therefore, it never gets used by most of us.

Before we explore that, though, let’s talk about what this psychic energy is and where it comes from – so you can understand the hidden potential you possess.

What are Psychic Powers?

When most people hear the phrase “psychic power,” they tend to envision some magical force found in movies and comic books.  You know: People flying through the air, lifting heavy objects with their minds, etc.

The truth is that psychic powers are more nuanced and varied.  (This is why we frequently do not know we have them.)

For example, have you ever felt like you have an innate knowledge of something – a natural grasp of something that you just couldn’t explain? Maybe you seem to just know how someone is feeling without talking to them.  Or perhaps you can locate hidden objects with ease, or sense the presence of other beings.

There are a variety of psychic powers that depend on the innate spiritual power of a human being, and all of them can be harnessed and wielded by their owners – if the owners are aware of them, of course! But what is the origin of these powers?

The Power Within

The origin of psychic powers in a human being rests in one mysterious yet powerful concept.

The human soul.

Humans are spiritual beings. We possess great amounts of spiritual energy within our bodies and souls, the energy that forms a common bond between all living things.  Our souls are the centers of our presence here in the universe, and it is the soul that gives us our psychic potential.

Of course, taking advantage of psychic potential means you have to first acknowledge it.  But, you also have to put yourself in the right mindset so you can achieve the power within you.

The first step is to be positive. Positive attracts positive; if you want positive results, you have to have the right attitude.  You will never achieve your full potential – psychic or otherwise – if you are not positive.

The next step is to relax and focus on who you are.  Focus on what makes you, you.  Try to eliminate stress in your life as much as possible.  Stress interferes with psychic channeling and denies you the ability to use your gift.

The more you focus on your abilities and pay attention to yourself and your soul, the more likely you are to identify your innate talent and learn how to start using it.

Throughout the process, though, remember that you, as a child of the universe, are a spiritual being and have spiritual capabilities within you.  Hold on to that thought.  Take hold of your capacity and capability, and focus on the positive.  You have psychic powers; now you just learn how to use them!

Bartow’s Historical Museum Enjoys Spirited Reputation

Robin Golden, museum assistant at the Polk County Historical Museum, looks over her shoulder in the basement of the museum. The facility, formerly the Polk County Courthouse, is known to be the site of some strange and ghostly happenings.

BARTOW — Not too long after she began working at the Polk County Historical Museum, Robin Golden started receiving reports that she had left lights burning in the building overnight.

Knowing she had turned out the lights before she left each day, Golden could think of only one explanation for custodians finding the rooms brightly lit — the resident ghosts were playing games with her.

“In this room the lights kept coming on,” Golden said, motioning toward the museum’s video room. “I finally said, `You all have to stop doing this or you will get me in trouble.’ ”

The lights have remained off all night ever since.

These types of experiences were happening in the museum and historical library long before Golden was hired as the museum assistant — incidents that tend to gain prominence around Halloween.

Built during late 1908 and 1909, the domed brick-and-limestone building at Main Street and Broadway Avenue once housed the Polk County Courthouse.

“This has always been a violent place. Violence was on trial,” said Library Manager Joe Spann. “If there would be a focus or nexus for that type of thing, it would be here.”

But during his 20-plus years with the historical library, Spann has always felt safe.

“I’ve been here for hours and hours, and I’ve never felt threatened,” Spann said.

That’s not to say he hasn’t experienced some strange situations.

Approximately 10 years ago, Spann was working alone in his office a couple of hours after the library and museum closed.

“I heard someone walking down the second floor library,” he said, leaning forward in his chair. “I know as sure as I’m sitting here that there was someone in the hallway.”

But no one was. At least no one living.

According to Tampa-based clairvoyant the Rev. Janet Reynolds, who recently visited the old courthouse, Spann could have heard any of 12 different spirits that are in residence.

“I feel some of them are there because they are restless,” she said. “Some of them are there because they want to be there.”

In a building that has been the scene for a lynching, a fatal explosion in the boiler room, viewing area of the body of a slain marshal, and nearly a century of death sentences, there are plenty of stories that conjure the idea of ghosts.

In 1955, Judge Curtis Chillingworth and his wife, Mary, disappeared from their beach house in South Florida. Though their bodies were never found, eventually it was discovered that Judge Joseph Peel Jr. had the couple killed.

The Chillingworths were taken out in the Atlantic Ocean, locked in chains, tied to weights and thrown overboard.

Peel’s murder trial was moved to Bartow because of the notoriety of the case in South Florida.

Library and museum employees wonder if the Chillingworths’ spirits are responsible for a couple of unexplained happenings.

“Patrons have heard footsteps behind them and we think it has been Judge Chillingworth,” Golden said.

Patrons, people setting up museum displays, and custodians have also heard these footsteps.

And the judge may be responsible for the malfunction of locks in the building.

“We think the problem we have with locks has to do with the judge,” Spann said. “Some of them don’t operate or operate backwards.

“We keep his picture on the wall upstairs. We want him to know that we recognize he is here,” Spann said.

Golden said other suspicious incidents inside the old courthouse building include the presence of “The Lady in White,” who appears as a human; elevators running without reason; screaming coming from the boiler room; visitors feeling something touching their hair and neck; and cold spots in various rooms.

The areas where Reynolds felt the most foreboding presence were the rotunda, video room and the boiler room.

The rotunda was where the slain marshal laid in state, Golden said.

Reynolds also felt some good vibes.

“The one room I felt good in was an old court room,” Reynolds said. “There was a lot of humor there.”

Like Spann and Golden, Reynolds isn’t afraid to be in the building, even in those areas where she has had negative reactions.

“I didn’t feel any fear. I only felt what happened,” she said.

Golden takes the seemingly paranormal activity in stride and attributes it to the historic atmosphere in the building.

“When you think about what went on in here and how many lives were changed, you can see how they might be trapped spirits,” Golden said. “I believe in angels, so why not believe in spirits?”

How Insight from a Medium Can Clear Up a Situation in Your Work World

 Medium, Psychic  Comments Off on How Insight from a Medium Can Clear Up a Situation in Your Work World

If you have a problem with your work environment – say, with a co-worker, a boss, or perhaps a difficult project – you are not alone.  People experience problems on a daily basis at work, ranging from simple matters to complex situations involving people that can be incredibly stressful.  This stress is harmful to your health, which means resolving these situations is a priority.  A medium can actually help you clear up such a situation in your work world through careful insight.

A medium is a person with special spiritual gifts of communication and connection with the spiritual world, a connection that gives the medium special insight into what most other people do not see or detect or understand.  This insight can range from relatively-simple visions to more complicated communications with spirits in another plane of existence.  In all cases, the medium’s talent of communication and channeling can help you with problems you have at work.

Imagine that you have a problem with a co-worker.  There may be a misunderstanding between you two – or he or she may be purposely interfering with you and causing this strife.  By visiting a medium, you can discover the truth of the situation and gain valuable insight into what is occurring to cause this disruption in your life.  If there’s a misunderstanding, for example, a medium could reveal to you the nature of this misunderstanding.  It is likely that neither you nor your co-worker were aware of the true nature of the misunderstanding. 

With the insight provided by a medium, you can clear up troublesome situations in your work world and make your work environment a place of peace and harmony.  This alone makes a trip to see a medium about your work situation worthwhile.

Medium and Psychic: What are the Differences?

Many are unaware of the true different between a medium and a psychic. Frequently, people assume psychics are mediums and vice versa; however, despite this common belief, these two words are not interchangeable. Throughout this article, we will briefly examine the difference between these two terms and talk about what each one means.

We will start by addressing the term that’s familiar with most people—psychic. The term “psychic” refers to the ability to sense and perceive things that others are unable to detect. Psychics have extrasensory perception, also known as ESP.  This extrasensory perception is often referred to as the sixth sense—an addition to hearing, seeing, touching, tasting, and smelling. Therefore, psychics have the sixth sense that others lack, giving them an ability to perceive things outside of a normal person’s ability. Psychics use this extra sensory perception ability in a variety of skills, techniques, and practices, including foretelling the future.

On the other hand, a medium specifically refers to a person that communicates with those that are no longer living—the dead. These individuals communicate with spirits in the afterlife. The term “medium” comes from the person’s ability to foster communication between the spirits and the living. Spirits can refer to the deceased, angels, and even demons. Furthermore, there are some instances in which the spirit is given permission to take over and speak or write through the body of the medium.

Psychics and mediums are similar in that they both function in an altered state and feature abilities that involve the supernatural aspect of the human mind and spirit. Furthermore, both have an extra sense that allows them to go beyond normal functioning. However, despite these similarities these two words are not interchangeable and refer to two different areas and occupations.
