Do you suspect that you have ESP?by Cherlyn Gardner Strong on Jul. 13, 2010, under Ghosts and Hauntings, Life, Paranormal, Psychic Phenomena
We hear the stories all the time, but we don’t always call it ESP, or extrasensory perception. Some people refer to it as clairvoyance. In some cases it is referred to as the sixth sense. Mothers commonly experience what is referred to as mother’s intuition. A mother starts to feel uneasy about her son, only to find out later that he was in a car accident at the exact moment she began to worry, is a common example.
Have you ever foretold of an event before it happened? Have you spoken of a past event and suddenly realize that you had no possible way of knowing about it?
Perhaps you possess some level of ESP.
The Rhine Research Center defines ESP as:
Paranormal cognition; the acquisition of information about an external event, object, or influence (mental or physical; past, present, or future) in some way other than through any of the known sensory channels.
There is a simple test that you can do at home to test your ESP abilities. It is called the Zener Test, which utilizes a physical deck of cards (or online images of the cards) called Zener cards. Zener Cards were designed in the early 1930′s by Karl Zener tor use in ESP related experiments with parapsychologist J.B. Rhine.
In a typical experiment with physical Zener cards, a tester will hold up a card, but not allow the sitter (the person being tested) to see the image on that card. The sitter will proceed to guess the the image on the card out of five possible choices: circle, cross, waves, square or star. There are variations of this experiment, depending on the tester.
However, if you would like to conduct the experiment by yourself, in private, you can test yourself online.
The Anima Project requires registration, but is otherwise free. The goal of the project is to analyze as many virtual sitters as possible “to provide a valid statistical analysis of precognition/clairvoyance.”
If total anonymity is more your speed, you can visit Psychic Science, also free. This website offers solo testing, but also uses Zener cards to test two subjects for telepathy. If you want to know if your spouse can really read your mind as well as you think, try this together some evening. It is a great date night activity.
Perhaps you desire portability of your Zener test. In this case, you can buy a Zener test kit from the Rhine Research Center for $25.00. Each kit includes a deck of Zener cards, a manual, and ESP record sheets.
