You can learn how to test psychic abilities in practical ways to find out if you are blessed with extrasensory perceptions.
Some people are born with highly developed psychic powers in the areas of clairvoyance, clairaudience and/or clairsentience. Others work to develop their psychic ability. Still others don’t care or don’t want anything to do with the world of metaphysical phenomena.
You are likely one of those who want to know how to test psychic abilities. So, let’s look at some easy and practical ways find your current level of clairvoyance.
There or no rules, grades or diplomas for successful completion of these exercises. Several are best accomplished with the help of a friend who is interested in the metaphysical arts.
The first tests using the ESP symbols of these five Zener cards were conducted in the 1930s by Joseph Banks Rhine at Duke University in the USA.
Just as in the computer version below, the original experiments called for subjects to guess the order of the symbols as they were randomly selected. Pure chance is measured as 1 in 5 correct calls.
Known as the Father of Modern Parapsychology Dr J B Rhine, along with his wife Dr L E Rhine coined the term "extrasensory perception" (ESP) to describe the apparent ability of some people to acquire information without the use of the known (five) senses. He also adopted the term "parapsychology" to distinguish his interests from mainstream psychology.
Using Zener Cards - This deck of 25 cards originated with Karl Zener, Psychologist. Zener, along with his associate J.B. Rhine, parapsychologist, developed five test cards with symbols – 3 wavy lines, a circle, a 5-pointed star, a square and a plus sign - to administer tests for ESP.
You can order Zener cards online (also known as ESP Cards) or make yourself a personalized deck from white cardstock. To create individual cards, draw each symbol on 5 different pieces of cardstock until you have 25 cards or click here to download a sheet to print your own.
You and your friend can take turns testing each other for clairvoyance.
As the sender
As the receiver
If you are both in the same location, get together and compare notes. If you are separated by distance, connect via phone or Skype and compare notes.
Alternative ways on how to test psychic abilities with this method.
Because you are testing for clairvoyance you may like to try some receiving variations to this exercise. Rather than imagining a clear white wall you can try:
Keep records of the number of, and types of, attempts vs correct clairvoyance testing answers. Compare notes.
The Aura is an electromagnetic field surrounding a living entity. Each auric color represents the individual’s current mental, spiritual and emotional state and more.
Have your partner stand in front of a white background. Stare at the center of her forehead. At first, you may just see a white glow surrounding her body. With practice, you may start seeing colored, interwoven rings of light.
If you normally wear glasses, try doing this exercise without them as you do not need detail. You should find it easier as the glass can be a barrier to the auric energy at first.
Record your progress.
Precognitive Dreams are dreams that predict future events. Predictions range from good or bad to death dreams. Death dreams about loved ones are common.
Some people have reported dreaming every detail of their ideal mate as long as 10 years before they connected with each other!
In clairvoyant dreams, the dreamer forms a psychic attachment with global events. For instance, you might have a detailed dream of being carried away by flood waters and wake up to find a disastrous tsunami had hit Japan.
You are the best interpreter of your psychic dreams. Your prophetic dreams are always the easiest to remember. They tend to stick in your mind when waking. The best way to test you’re your ability with psychic dreaming is to keep a dream journal. When you keep note you will always have your evidence when events unfold later. It will not take many recorded psychic dreams to convince you of your own psi-powers. For advanced psychic dreaming it’s well worth learning about lucid dreaming.
How To Test Psychic Abilities With ESP Cards In Your Dreams
If you have a set of ESP Cards you can try this exercise. Before bed, shuffle the cards, pick one and lay it face down on your bedside table. Ask your guides, angels, or higher self to give you a dream indicating the card you have picked. Go to sleep and notice if a particular dream wakes you in the night. What in this dream brings one of the cards to mind? Make a note in your dream diary. In the morning, read your note, turn the card. Don't try to GUESS which card it was, you should just know. For instance I dreamed of three snakes chasing me. My card was the three squiggly lines, On another attempt with this exercise I woke from a dream with a shooting star crashing to earth. My card that night was the star.
