On this page about telepathy I'd like to start with some simple definitions, cover some real examples, and then share some exercises in telepathy training for you.
The word origins of telepathy mean ‘distant' (tele) – 'emotional feeling' (pathos). It is the ability to sense information from one mind to another without any logical connection. It is simply a mind to mind extra-sensory perception. So in a nutshell my telepathy definition is about person to person and person to pet thought transmissions (and vice versa).
We know that thoughts are energy. Once thoughts are created, our brain sends out electrical impulses that can travel through air. Everyone has their own vibration. It is possible to tune into each other’s wavelength, like on the TV where we can tune into different stations.
Here are some examples of telepathy.
Everyone experiences flashes of telepathy. For instance, two people are having a conversation when both say the same thing at once. Spouses finish each other’s sentences. You think of a friend you haven’t seen in ages and the phone rings. Guess who!
The above examples show this meaning of telepathy is one of communication between two people through thought transference. The five physical senses: smell, sight, taste, hearing and touch aren’t used.
Rupert Sheldrake and Telephone Telepathy
Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and many books. He has investigated unexplained aspects of animal behaviour, including how pigeons find their way home, the telepathic abilities of dogs, cats and other animals, and the apparent abilities of animals to anticipate earthquakes and tsunamis. He subsequently studied similar phenomena in people, including the sense of being stared at, telepathy between mothers and babies, telepathy in connection with telephone calls, and premonitions.

About Telepathic Pets
When it comes to animal telepathy, it is widely known that they have psychic and telepathy skills. Animals will send thought forms in way of feelings and symbols.
Whilst they understand some commands of our language, they cannot think and reason to the level of humans. Therefore if you develop mental telepathy you can receive telepathic messages from your pets. You will be able understand the psychic and telepathic messages in images or feelings you receive from them.
A collaborative research project on telepathy with animals by Dr. Rupert Sheldrake and Aimee Morgana on the abilities of her African Grey parrot N'kisi, was published in a paper in the Journal of Scientific Exploration.
What is Psychic Telepathy?
Telepathy can be different to being psychic. During a psychic reading, a psychic like myself, receives information that is given by the higher self, guides, spirits, and angels. I guess you could call this consciousness telepathy. But this is vastly different to the telepathic process where you are reading the thoughts of another’s mind. However psychic's are often called upon to tune into and sense how a certain person may be thinking towards the querent. Love and relationship readings can require good psychic telepathy skills. But the psychic must assume responsibility to use telepathy correctly. In other words, they should never stoop to psychic snooping!
Can Identical Twins Communicate Telepathically?
It has been proven that telepathy exists stronger between family members and close friends. This is because generally they are all on the same wavelength. Like attracts like. This phenomena seems to be greatly amplified with twin telepathy.
Having know an identical twin for many years I have seen first hand the remarkable phenomena of twin telepathy in action. When the twins were together in the same location they would finished the other's sentences all the time. But most fascinating was while thee twins were seperated by continents. Each would call the other via telephone the moment an emotional issue would arise with the other. The incoming caller would know in unexplainable detail what was happening for the twin with the issue. Emotion (positive and negative) was always a key factor.
About Telepathy Tests
Much work has been done in modern times by the scientific community to legitimize “telepathy”. The most widely accepted and well known telepathy experiments were those of JB Rhine at Duke University. In 1927, Rhine used mental telepathy cards designed by Karl Zener, called (funnily enough) Zener Cards! These are a set of 5 mental telepathy cards with simple figures such as a plus sign, a wave, a star, a square and a circle. The idea behind the cards is that a person will hold up a card and the person being tested is expected to “hit” on what the figure is. An expected score of someone guessing which card is being held up would be around 20% correct. The more times a person is tested on a 25 deck of cards, the more statistically significant the test score becomes. Over time, if the person that is tested has not learned how to develop mental telepathy the scores would average out at around 20%. A person who has learned how to develop mental telepathy however, would be expected to score considerably higher.
Developing mental telepathy calls for patience and perseverance. Remember you’re virtually starting at scratch to achieve what some psychics were born knowing how to do.
Remember, you are attempting to develop untapped mind territory. Just be patient and keep practicing.
