This has been a long time in the making. I was very excited to read the published, peer-reviewed paper on the genetics of psychic ability, aka the psigenes study, which clearly demonstrates that the genes of high-functioning psychics do seem to have some variations from those in the control group.
I was very pleased to have had the opportunity to participate in this study, and to have been one of the 13 'retained psychics'. It has yielded some fascinating insights, many of which are not listed in this paper but which may well go on to form the foundation for future research. Those in the group tested shared details of 'abilities' such as claircognisance, precognition, remote-viewing, telepathy, empathy, animal communication, physical healing, geomancy, aura reading, astral projection, lucid dreaming, channeling, mediumship, psychometry and clairalience.
For my part, I happen to think these are innate human abilities that we all have, but which lie dormant in many. Like any muscle they require exercise. My own sense of perception, my intuition, expanded exponentially within a very short time of establishing a regular Reiki practice, and substantially more following a series of spontaneous transcendental experiences which allowed me to access greatly expanded states of consciousness.
Huge thanks to Helane Wahbeh, Julia Mossbridge and all at the Institute of Noetic Sciences for the years of hard work that have gone into this study, and for their encouragement. Here's to exploring more deeply and learning more together in the years ahead.
Incidentally, if you'd like to contribute by taking part in similar research IONS are actively seeking volunteers for a variety of research projects.
