If you are looking into psychics and psychic ability then one of the first things you will realise is that there are many different types of psychic abilities out there that people may have. If you feel as though you might possess a psychic ability, researching the different types of psychic abilities other people have might help you understand your own skills better.
Also known as sixth sense, and sometimes known as extra sensory perception (ESP), physic abilities can be split into the following types.
Telepathy is the transferring of thoughts and emotions from one person to another without speech or other normal methods of communication, such as gestures and body language.
Precognition is the dreaming, picturing or imagining of events before they happen.
Mediums are able to communicate with those who have passed over, conveying messages from spirits to living humans, often relatives of the deceased. This practice is often called mediumship.
Also known as pyschokenisis, telekinesis is the movement or manipulation of objects, matter or energy using the power of the mind alone. Telekinesis is used to teleport an object.
Apportation describes the teleportation (movement), materialisation, or disappearance of something using the power of the mind.
Perhaps one of the most well-known of psychic abilities, clairvoyants use clairvoyance to perceive and understand without use of the usual human senses (e.g. sight, sound, etc). Clairvoyance is also called second sight.
Dowsing is the ability to find things, such as precious gems and stones, water, gravesites and oil, without the aid of any scientific equipment, sometimes by using a dowsing or divining rod or sometimes using nothing at all.
Divination is the attempt to find out something through a ritual, by interpreting signs and omens or by contacting the supernatural world.
As you have probably realised, many of the psychic abilities complement or overlap one another, and this list is by no means exhaustive; there may be further psychic abilities that you have come across in your own experiences!
