I Am Psychic and So Are You

Hi, my name is Eliza Fayle and I am a psychic.

How did reading that make you react?

Did you feel excited that you are reading an article written by a real psychic? Did you feel slightly repulsed because of general societal views of psychics?

Both reactions are quite normal, but I would like to propose a ‘new’ normal reaction. This new reaction is

That’s cool, Eliza. So am I.

But you aren’t psychic, you argue. Why would you react like that?

Because you are psychic. We all are.

According to Dictionary.com the definition of psychic is ‘of or pertaining to some apparently nonphysical force or agency’. You have experienced events pertaining to some apparently nonphysical force or agency whenever you:

  • are singing a song in your head then turn the radio on and they are playing that song
  • think of someone you haven’t thought of in a while and they phone or email you seemingly out of the blue, or
  • know who is phoning you before you even answer the phone
  • are in a perfectly good mood, but all of a sudden experience inexplicable sadness
  • experience a sudden pain somewhere in your body that disappears as mysteriously as it arrived
  • say something out loud and the person you are with says “Oh my gosh, I was just thinking that exact same thing”

These are just a few examples of psychic phenomenon and I defy you to tell me you have not experienced at least one of them.

So, yes, you are indeed psychic. The only difference, therefore, between you and me is

  1. I have deliberately developed and strengthened my psychic abilities, and
  2. I choose to make a living with these abilities.

That’s it, that’s all.

So, let’s try this again.

That’s cool, Eliza. So am I.
