Clairvoyants and psychics have been an important part of many cultures ever since the foundation of civilization. Those who have clairvoyant abilities were once given very high ranking positions in society, such as shamans, high priests, witch doctors and village elders – because they had direct contact with the mysterious forces that govern our lives.
However, the modern-day psychic is very different than these old fashioned mysterious and exotic fortune tellers. If you believe that a psychic will reveal the face of your future love in her crystal ball, this is not really how it works.
Psychics in the Modern Age
So what role have psychics taken on in the modern age? These days, most modern psychics are more likely to draw a distinction between what they do and the world of religion. Instead, many psychics and clairvoyants have allied themselves with science and what it has to offer. Since science seems to be constantly trying to debunk psychics and clairvoyants, they are citing scientific theories to provide credibility to what they do.
For example, scientific theory states that all matter is made with condensed energy. Psychics claim that their psychic signals are merely matter that is vibrating at a higher frequency.
A modern psychic is more rational and doesn’t hide behind religion or the supernatural – as fewer people believe in these things than they did in the past. Instead, they present themselves as simply ordinary people who have decided to work with the gifts that they have been given.
In spite of the skepticism from many people, psychics in the 21st century are actually becoming more popular. With the development of the internet, many psychics offer their services online rather than in person. This makes it a lot easier to consult with a psychic and allows you to connect with psychics from all over the world – not just ones in your immediate area. The average psychic website allows you to choose from dozens of skilled and experienced psychics from all over the world, so that you can connect with someone who can really give you meaningful insight into your life and the issues that you are dealing with.
Psychics More Like Life Coaches
The modern day psychic is less like a supernatural witch doctor or reader of crystal balls – they are more like a psychologist, career counselor, therapist and life coach all rolled into one. Many psychics have honed their skills through classes and many years of work. They are able to tune into the situation of their clients and immediately analyse it – understanding on a deep and intuitive level what the person is going through. A qualified psychic is able to see the entire situation of their client, including all of the things that they might be carrying with them unconsciously and all of the things that are holding them back.
A psychic has the ability to look past the obvious and to perceive things that might not be evident. They can pick up on subtle vibrations or certain types of energy that the average person might not be aware of.
Could You Be a Psychic?
Many people are interested in the psychic arts and wonder whether or not they could succeed in this profession themselves. If you feel like you naturally have psychic powers, you might be wondering how to develop your own psychic ability so that you can tap into these powers.
A common theory is that we are all psychic when we are children. As we grow, a sense of self-consciousness sets in and blocks our flow of intuitive energy. Many believe that we can tap into our psychic ability when we get older, so that we can re-awaken these childhood powers. You can develop your psychic powers by reading books and guides on the internet, practicing meditation and guided visualization and looking into different forms of divination including runes, a pendulum, scrying or I-ching. You could even consider joining a group of other psychics, so that you can learn from them and practice your skills.
The modern psychic is less of a mystic figure and more of a trusted friend who has deeper powers of intuition than most. The role of the psychic in modern society has shifted, but they are still very popular for advice and guidance.
