In my post, Predicting the future, I mentioned a day we went to a paranormal fair, and how the lady looked at a picture of my grandmother, then told me my grandfather was standing behind me, saying he was waiting for his wife to join him. This was in 2005 or 2006, and my grandmother passed away in 1995.
To say it disappointed me will be an understatement. Instead of feeding my fascination with the paranormal, it only fed my skepticism.
Deduction from body language or a psychic thing?
If you ask Master T about the paranormal, his opinion is always the same: it’s nonsense. He’s a realist, believing only in things he can see, and which can be explained scientifically.
I don’t share his opinion (shocking right?!)
When I ask him how some things can be explained, he talks about body language, or the way we always unknowingly give away information about ourselves without realizing this. Psychics pick up on that, and feed the information back to us.
I agree with this to some degree, but still there are things we can’t explain. There’s more between heaven and earth than only the things we have cold, hard facts for.
Knowing who’s at the door
Years ago, at work, we had a camera at the door, and had to buzz people in when they rang the bell. As manager of the department, I had my own office and no sight on the screen showing who was at the door.
A colleague sat with me in my office when the bell rang.
“It’s the courier,” I said.
“It’s too early,” she answered.
Normally the courier would deliver packages roundabout 3pm, but it was only 1pm at that moment. Only moments later, we heard footsteps in the hallway, and the courier entered our office.
Believe me, it surprised me as much as my colleague!
These kinds of things have happened to me more, and I could never explain how I knew it. I don’t see myself and never will see myself as a psychic person.
So, were those lucky guesses?
Science, guesswork or a psychic thing?
Recently, a friend told us about a visit to a kinesiologist.
Kinesiology is the scientific study of human body movement. Kinesiology addresses Physiological, Anatomical, Biomechanical, and Neuropsychological Principles and Mechanisms of Movement. Applications of kinesiology to human health include biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; motor control; skill acquisition and motor learning; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise physiology. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, electrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioral and cognitive research techniques.~ From Wikipedia
The kinesiologist did the examination, which also included — as mentioned in the quote above — electrophysiology. During this part of the examination, while touching her arms, he asks her what dramatic life event took place when she was 47 years old. She answered that her mom passed away. Then he asked her what happened when she was 38. That was the year of her divorce.
How did he know that? She hadn’t shared any of that with him. How could he be so accurate about the ages when those life events happened? Kinesiology is a science, but was that part of his exam a psychic thing?
More between heaven and earth
As said above, I believe there’s more between heaven and earth. I believe in spirituality, but not necessarily in the God of the Bible, despite a religious upbringing.
I believe there are people who have opened up their hearts and minds, and are in touch with the universe, probably even able to predict the future, or see things that happened in the past, without knowing the facts.
Some things in life we just can’t explain. I believe psychic people exist, and so does the paranormal, as much as the normal.
But, what even is ‘normal’?
