National Psychic Day was purportedly created in 1965 by Richard R. Falk as a publicity stunt to promote the celebrity psychics he was currently managing. Today, National Psychic Day is used to recognize and celebrate psychics, kicking off “psychic week,” days of festivities and celebrations.
Do you know what a psychic is?
Psychics are different from mediums, although mediums use psychic abilities, and although some are capable of both mediumship and psychic powers, according to Sharon Farber. A medium communicates with the dead, specifically the dead loved ones of a specific individual, bringing healing and closure, sometimes through messages from the departed. The definition of psychic varies, but a psychic is generally someone who is highly intuitive and who has extra sensory perception (ESP), often called the “sixth sense,” which acquires information from beyond bodily senses or abilities. The psychic community commonly believes that any person can develop and use ESP. A professional psychic makes predictions about a client’s future, offering guidance and suggestions for careers or relationships, sometimes using tools, such as tarot cards, pendulums, crystals, astrology, or divination.
According to Alissa Monroe from Psychics 4 Today, there are nine known ESP types: precognition, or the ability to see the future; retrocognition, or the ability to see into the past; clairvoyance, the “ability to see events without being physically present;” mediumship, the ability to communicate with the dead; clairsentience, or sensing someone’s feelings, or feelings from a specific place; telepathy, which is the ability to read another person’s mind; clairalience, the ability to acquire psychic impressions from smell; and clairgustance, the ability to taste a substance without putting the substance in one’s mouth.
How Psychic Day Unites People
National Psychic Day is the perfect day to test and develop your own psychic abilities and connect to the broader community of ESP believers.
You intuitively sense bad vibes from someone for no good reason, which later proves correct.
You have avoided car accidents or other ill events due to sudden impulses or feelings.
Your dreams come true.
You’ve made accurate future predictions.
If you think you might be psychic, try these tips to test your ESP abilities:
Take an online psychic test—there are many to choose from, and most involve “sensing” the correct card or wedge on a color wheel, or some other computer-chosen object.
Try the Zener card test, such as this online one from horoscope.com. See if you can sense what card will be chosen.
Try the color wheel test from Psychics Director: Try to predict what color will appear in the color box and see your psychic point tally.
The psychic community believes every person has ESP abilities, so here are some ways to develop your skills from Stephen Wagner:
Meditate to clear your head and increase your focus.
Practice: try to predict the person calling before you answer your phone or try to predict the person knocking on your door before you open it. Similarly, try to predict the next song that will play on the radio.
Journal your experiences, seeing if you have a successful “hit” rate or mostly misses.
Read books on the subject.
If all else fails, you can always call a psychic! It will typically cost you several dollars per minute, but it can be fun and informative to hear a psychic’s predictions or advice based on what they see in your past, present, and future.
