Believe it or not, the sixth sense is something that hundreds of thousands of people claim to be gifted with.
Here’s everything we know about extrasensory perception and everything that goes with it!
What is the sixth sense?
This all sounds very scary and you’ve probably heard this term before, but possessing the sixth sense is very complex.
This means that those who claim to have it are able to feel things and communicate through spirit, and are able to feel things that others would not.
Another term for the sixth sense is extrasensory perception, and this also goes by ESP or second sight.
The term extrasensory perception was coined by Duke University psychologist JB Rhine to refer to psychic abilities such as intuition, telepathy, psychometry, clairaudience, and clairvoyance.
How does extrasensory perception work?
Those without the sixth sense see the world through their five physical senses.
These are smell, taste, sight, touch and hearing, and our mind and intellect also come into play.
When you have the sixth sense, you perceive the world differently, it’s called the subtle-world.
There are five subtle senses rather than the normal five, a subtle mind and a subtle intellect, and when these come into play once activated, the subtle world or subtle dimension can be experienced.
This is known as a spiritual experience, and those who experience it will often obtain Divine Knowledge on such matters as life after death.
Does that mean you can see ghosts?
The whole field of mediums, extrasensory perception, clairvoyants, etc. is very complicated and there are many different veins.
Psychics are those who claim to be able to speak to spirits (or ghosts if you prefer), and they will mediate the conversation between the spirits of the living and the dead.
There are also several types of mediumship, such as channeling spirits and the ouija board, and the practice is often linked to voodoo, spiritualism, spiritualism, candomblé, voodoo and umbanda.
