What is Extra Sensory Perception (ESP)

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

What is Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) ESP, or extra sensory perception, is defined as receiving information beyond your 5 measurable senses. ESP is considered the 6th sense, which every human being has. The question is how to access your dormant sense. On this page you will learn just that. Once you have mastered the use of your ESP, you can do things you only dreamed of. But, like any new skill you learn, it takes hard work and years of practice to master it. How it works. Your ESP functions the same way all of your other senses, through the use of your brain. Like many other topics coverage on this page, improving you ESP requires a great about of faith in your success and commitment to the practice. How the brain exactly processes information it receives from the 6th sense, no one knows; but what is well believed is that we all have this power. Some are lucky and are born with an ESP advantage. This page is for those who aren't so lucky and wish to have full access to what they were born with. I'm sure you've had the experience where you keep reminding yourself to call a friend of family, but that person calls you instead. Perhaps you heard the door bell and a name popped in your head, which turns out that that name belongs to the person standing at the door. Or the most common one: you're watching the lotto drawing on a Sunday evening and just so happened to pick all the correct numbers, but never played. These brushes upon ESP cannot be confirmed nor denied, but something is happening to beat the odds. Whatever this something is, we hope to give you some more insight, and you'll be the final judge as to what you choose to believe. What it can do. With control over your ESP you will have and edge in life. ...read more.

Some use coffee breaks. I know one nursing mother who sharpened her hypnotic skills while feeding her baby. In the beginning, you will need several periods a day to become adept at hypnotizing yourself. Three times a day, for ten or fifteen minutes a time, is usually good to start with. Practice frequently enough to reward yourself with swift success, which makes it easier for you to continue. PLACE- The places people choose for self-hypnosis sessions vary as widely as individual personalities. Some people choose lying horizontally on a bed; others prop themselves up with pillows. A frequently chosen position is in a reclining chair, where the body is supported comfortably at all points. Some people choose to work on their hypnotic skills while taking a walk, but most will find a reclining or semi-reclining posture best at the outset. Wherever you will feel the most relaxed is the best spot for you. A quiet room, free of distractions and interruptions, is usually most conducive to hypnosis, but if you would feel more relaxed outdoors, that's okay too. The place you choose may be indoors or out, in a bedroom, a workroom, or a patio. Whatever place you decided on, stick to it for the first several sessions. A regular time and a regular place that you associate with the hypnotic experience can help you build you skills quickly. EVIRONMENT- Choose your environment to suit your personality. If you are most comfortable with acid rock blaring from the stereo system, then that will heighten your hypnotic experience. If, on the other hand, you prefer classical music played softly, use that. Many people require silence and like to dim the lights to increase their inner focus. Arrange your environment to please you, setting it up so that you reinforce all the relaxation measures you already know and enjoy. BODY-SET- I usually recommend that people keep their bodies as limp as possible, in a position that is most relaxing for them. ...read more.

Conclusion

There is no sure way on how to read someone's mind, but here are two that might help you out. Selective attention. Remember the hypothesis that all thoughts are freely roaming? Well, selective attention is very similar to just fine tuning on to one of those thoughts. After you have gained some experience in ESP you will be able to sense these thoughts floating around you. All you have to do is concentrate on the person's name and anything else that stands out about him or her. Or you can imagine a situation with that person in your head. If you find it hard to receive any information while thinking about a person, then you can try staring at that person, but avoid letting that person know that you are staring at him or her. Keep your eyes locked and concentrate on how his or her body flows and walks, and attempt to know what that person is thinking at that moment. After you have centered all your attention on that person, bring him or her into an imaginary room that suits your desires. Begin a conversation with that person and ask the questions that you want to know. This will not work if you have not built up your ESP. Object oriented. An object of a person's can aid in pointing your ESP into the right direction. Obtain something of a person's that has some sort of significance in his or her life. Some examples are hats, favorite toy or clothing, a lock of hair, etc. Now, place this object in your hand and focus all your attention on this one object. Cherish it as though it were the only thing left on earth. The key for object aids is to see beyond the physical properties of the object. See what the object symbolizes. Feel the object, as if it were a memory storage and now you've come to retrieve the memories it holds. You can combine the techniques for ESP and hypnosis to increase the chance that you will receive some information. ...read more.
