Are you Psychic? by John Culbertson
Are you Psychic? by John Culbertson
A common question I typically hear from my clients and beginning
students is “Am I psychic?” The answer has and will always be the same.
Of course you are!
I firmly believe that EVERY person who is born into this physical world has
strong intuitive and psychic abilities which are woven and genetically
implemented right into their DNA structures.
Who out there has not had a psychic experience? Let’s look at some common and
not so common psychic experiences that people tend to have and discuss what
psychic ability is being used.
· Has the phone ever rung and you knew who it was before you looked at the
caller ID or answered it?
· Have you ever worn the same color shirt as a friend that you were meeting
later in the evening?
· Have you ever said the same thing at the same time as another person?
· Do you just know what your baby or pet needs, despite the fact they can’t
· Have you ever thought of a friend and they called you while or shortly
after you were thinking of them? Likewise, have you ever called a friend only to
hear “I was just thinking about you!”
· Have you ever wanted something to drink and were thinking about it and
shortly after a spouse or friend brought you something to quench your thirst or
asked if they could get you anything to drink?
You are acting as either a generative or receptive telepath in these
situations. A generative telepath can send ideas and thoughts to another person.
A receptive telepath can pick up on the ideas and thoughts of other people. Two
very skilled telepaths can hold entire conversations with just their thoughts
while never speaking to each other. Many women find themselves doing this when
with their best friend, but both men and women are capable of using this
· Do you know what mood a person is going to be in before you encounter
· Do you get sad when you are around another person that is sad? Do you get
really happy or excited when around another person that is having the same
· Has anyone ever told you that they just feel instantly calm, at ease, or
even safe when around you?
· Do you hate crowds, graveyards, or hospitals because of the feeling or
feelings you get when around them?
Your empathic ability is at work in these cases either in a generative or
receptive way. When you are a receptive empath you tend to pick up the feelings
and emotions of others. These are the people who many times have trouble being
in large crowds because they end up being bombarded by the emotional energy of
so many people at one time. These people make phenomenal counselors as they
usually tune right into what another is feeling and are capable of truly
A generative empath is able to take a mood they are having and make others
feel it. Very useful when a person is going through a crisis situation or is
very angry. Someone who is a generative empath, if capable of remaining calm
themselves, is able to generate that calm feeling outward and have others feel
CLAIRVOYANCE, PRECOGNITION, and REMOTE VIEWING
· Have you ever had a dream that came true?
· Have you ever seen a vision that turned out to be real?
· Do you see dead people?
· Do you see auras?
· Can you think of a location and then picture what is actually happening or
going on there, or what has happened there?
These are mostly all forms of clairvoyance at work either in a precognitive
or a remote viewing fashion.
Precognition means before the fact. It’s the idea of seeing, hearing, feeling
or knowing something before it happens. If you’ve ever been with a person
watching a movie and a few minutes into the movie they outlined the whole plot
for you, despite the fact they had never seen it, you are sitting with a person
that is having a precognitive experience. While frustrating at the time, just
think of their “psychic” potential!
Remote Viewing, sometimes called long distant viewing, is the ability to see
another location and watch what is happening or going on there.
When I was first working to refine my psychic abilities I use to sit with
women I was dating and play a game with them. The object of the game was for me
to describe their bedroom to them. When you start getting really good at this,
you tend to get an “Ok, you’re freaking me out now!” response.
Clairvoyance means clear seeing. It’s the psychic ability that deals with
sight. Anything which involves you seeing real or mental images can be called
· Have you ever touched an object or entered a room only to get flashes or
images that somehow seemed associated with it in the past, but there was nothing
happening in that present moment?
· Have you ever picked up a DVD or book and your mood changed to match the
mood of what that DVD or book was about?
· Have you ever shook the hand of another individual and got a strange
feeling about them or had a thought which didn’t make sense to you at the time,
but found out later was connected to that individual?
These are all forms of psychometry which also usually makes use of empathy
and clairvoyance. Psychometry is “psychic touch.” It happens when we feel a
vibration that is different from our own, especially as related to physical
objects. Because it deals so much with other vibrations it is sometimes called
Many police or forensic psychics work with psychometry. But anytime a psychic
must hold your hand or an object that belongs to you or another person you are
inquiring about, they are doing a form of psychometry.
· Have you ever heard someone call your name, physically heard it, but when
you turned around or answered nobody was around?
· Have you ever had a discussion with a person that has crossed over and
either heard their voice or the answers in your own head? Have you ever heard
their voice with your physical ear?
· Have you ever started to do something but were scolded or told to stop by
another voice other than your own when nobody else was around?
· Have you ever laid in bed at night or been in a very quiet location and it
sounded like many people were chattering or talking?
These are all clairaudient experiences. True clairaudience is when you hear
these things with your physical ear as though they are an outside voice actually
talking to you. Telepathic clairaudience is when you hear the voices inside your
I am a primary clairaudient psychic. Besides channeling, it is the psychic
sense I make the most use of. This is how I get the vast majority of my
information both during and outside of a session. Because of this, most of my
students eventually develop this ability and most, unfortunately, think they are
going crazy the first time they are laying in bed and realize that “the voices”
are chattering with them. Eventually you learn to tell those voices “one at a
time!” or “Tune it up or tune it out!”
· Have you ever gotten a headache and discovered that someone else in the
room had one prior to you getting it? Did the headache go away after you found
Anytime you feel pains in your own physical body that actually belong to
someone else, living or crossed over, this is termed clairsentience and works
off of the empathic ability. The word means clear feeling. Many psychometry and
empathic experiences are often grouped under the clairsentience category as
opposed to separate categories.
· Ever smelt a particular odor (like perfume, cigars, etc) while at a friends
house, but discovered that you were the only person smelling it? Did you ever
ask if anyone in their family use to wear that perfume or smoke that cigar?
You might be picking up on a spiritual energy or guide through your psychic
smelling ability. Clairalience means clear scent and is the psychic ability that
correspondence to our sense of smell.
· Did you ever get a gut level feeling that you should take a different path
home or avoid a certain location only to find out later that an accident or
something negative took place there?
· Have you ever pulled into a store parking lot and just somehow knew where
to find that parking spot right in front?
· Have you ever been surprised to discover that you know how to write, paint,
speak, or perform any number of different things right when you needed to be
able to do it, but when asked to do it again later you discovered you weren’t
capable of reproducing those efforts?
Clairognizance means clear knowing. It’s a psychic ability that has to do
with just getting sudden insights and understandings into things. It can also
allow some very gifted people with this ability to actually be able to perform
actions or tasks which they really have no knowledge of. A great example is a
friend of mine. She’s phenomenal with computers and can get them to do almost
anything she wants or needs them to do. When you ask her how she did it though,
her response is always “I don’t know!”
All of these are psychic abilities and chances are, if you’re the average
human being, there is at least one or two in the above that you’ve found
yourself doing. These are just a small number of them too! There are many other
examples that one could use besides these that could also fall under psychic
Some people would laugh and say, “That’s merely coincidence!” What is
coincidence though? According to Wikipedia, a coincidence is the noteworthy
alignment of two or more events or circumstances without obvious causal
connection. In other words, it is merely a term that a human being thought up in
order to be able to explain that which nothing else is capable of
My psychic development students are not allowed to say or use the word
coincidence. I make them strike it from their vocabulary. There is no such thing
as coincidences. Everything has an energetical reason in some form or another
for happening. For any coincidence that has occurred, an energy somewhere had to
be at work helping to draw those experiences together.
Children are among the most psychic individuals you will ever come across.
When we are born into this world we are many times fully open and our only way
to interact with the new world we have come into is through the psychic senses.
Even young children are no strangers to the psychic energies that are active
within the world.
· A child who has an imaginary friend, might just really be communicating
with a spirit guide.
· A kid that begs you not to go somewhere may be feeling or knowing something
which you aren’t aware of in that moment.
· That child that says grandma visited them may actually be telling the
There are countless other examples, but these are the main ones that kids
get in trouble for. Parents and society has a way of shutting these abilities
off. Many times a child must learn to shut down in order to avoid punishment and
harsh words and criticism. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either as it
allows the child to learn to live in and function in the physical world.
takes a special parent or caretaker to guide children, helping them to stay open
while at the same time teaching them how to live in our physical world. Most of
the time, believe it or not, it’s better to teach children to shut down and
then, later in life, help them to relearn that which they had known all
That’s what psychic development classes are mostly about. Relearning that
which has always been there, but which was shut down for one reason or another.
The difference is we learn to selectively use our abilities and then turn them
off when we are finished.
So are you psychic?
Everyone is. You just have to take the time to investigate it and relearn
that which has always been.
