First off, you should know that I don’t “believe in” psychic phenomena or the “paranormal.” There is no such thing as the “paranormal” — psychic energy, spiritual energy, healing energy — these are not “paranormal” things, these are just normal things. Perhaps they are more difficult to sense tangibly, but they are normal nonetheless.

I don’t “believe in” the “paranormal” for two important reasons:

1. Those who experience for themselves don’t need to “believe.” Belief is an external idea, whereby we put our faith in something we can not sense. I have faith, but I don’t need to “believe” in psi — I have experienced it myself. And, believe it or not, so have you.

2. There is nothing “paranormal” about the paranormal. What we consider the “paranormal” because of what the media, our peers, and society has told us — is not paranormal at all. It is actually just normal.

Paranormal literally means ‘side-by-side with the normal.’ The ‘para’ prefix works the same way as in the word “Paralegal,” a person who works side-by-side with a lawyer.

But normal is normal, and the so-called “Paranormal” implies that rational, normal parts of life aren’t normal, which they are. Confused yet? Keep reading!

I’ve had an ongoing series of personal experiences that include, but aren’t limited to:

*Offering psychic readings to complete strangers using clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience
*Reading evidential information about people who have passed away (i.e. mediumship)
*Physical manifestations of the deceased
*Energy exchanges with friends and family
*Wisdom about strangers obtained through divination tools (e.g. Tarot card readings)
*Precognitive visions and dreams
*First-hand encounters with the souls of “lost” relatives

Along with my experiences, however, I have not personally experienced:

*A NDE (Near-Death Experience)
*An OBE (Out-of-body Experience),
*A DSW (Desire for Satan Worship – okay, I made that one up, but it’s true. No devil work here.)

But I am convinced of their validity (well, the first two) and the necessity of their continued study.

I am a firm advocate of the importance of personal experience as the only form of validation for the “non-believer.” I do not refer to myself as a “believer.” I refer to myself as an “experient” or “experiencer.”

The only way to gain insight into advanced forms of intelligence is to be a willing subject of transformational experience. These experiences can be accessed by anybody, and should be, if one is to begin to comprehend our universe.
