There’s no doubt that psychics are so insightful and amazing. People gifted with a psychic ability have the chance tapping into the realms beyond the ordinary everyday reality. But when you stop and think about it – what does it mean to have a psychic ability, and where does it come from? Is psychic ability a genetic gift? Science is getting closer to providing a better idea of the phenomenal ability that some are carrying.
Are talented visionaries born or made? I do believe that we all have some degree of ESP (extra sensory perception), but I also think that genetics and the environment an individual grows up in play major roles as well. People born with the unexplained gift can have a number of special abilities which allow them to ‘see’ music, ‘hear’ colors, and ‘feel’ what others are feeling by activating ‘sixth sense’. From what Sylvia Hart Wright mentioned in the Journal of Spirituality and Paranormal Studies, psychic sensitivity appears to run in some families with a strong belief in ESP or with a history of twins.
In addition, it seems like those who experience severe illnesses or personal crises tend to form psychic awareness. Nearly every medium has undergone a series of personal crises or has endured severe trauma in their childhood. Being raised in an abusive or angry environment may develop intuitive abilities as a means of coping with sufferings.
So, what is a hereditary psychic? That person is born with psychic ability inherited from someone further back in their family line. True psychics are simply given birth to that way. As children growing up, they suddenly display certain characteristics indicating possession of supernatural gifts. They are often found talking to deceased family members or have precognitive dreams. A part of what goes into making up the meaning of ‘hereditary psychic’ is about whether there have been practicing psychics down the generational line. It could be the mom who is able to ‘see’ things, or the great-grandma who was known for giving psychic readings.
If other generations have openly used their extraordinary skills, that usually gives the young child showing their psychic ability a major head start. Well, does the sixth sense run in your family? Did you have a difficult childhood? Do you think the crisis back then can develop your sensitivity?
What if you aren’t born into a spiritual family and do not experience traumas, how can you develop your abilities? People often say that if you put your mind to something and work hard, you will achieve it. So, couldn’t this same attitude work towards psychic development? Of course it could! Those with a predisposition are definitely at an advantage, yet we all have the capacity to learn and improve our intuitive skills. There are many avenues for individuals to enhance their psychic skills and attain the same levels as those who are gifted, like practicing meditation, taking a formal intuitive training course, etc.
Believe it or not, there are many professional clairvoyants out there who were not necessarily born gifted. In fact, they developed their passion for understanding and working with the spiritual realms.
In short, is psychic ability a genetic gift? As a matter of fact, it possibly is. We are born with psychic potential. But for those who have a strong belief in ESP, their abilities often display at an early age while others have to take a little more effort. It’s comforting to know that we all have the chance to reach the realm beyond.
