Opening to the Precognitive Mind

There's a very good article on The Huffington Post, about the nature of psychic and precognitive development. Dr. Larry Dossey began having precognitive flashes about his patients, early in his medical career. In his new book, The Power of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives, he lays out documented cases of precognitive experiences and explains how we can all connect to these abilities. As he explains in the Huffington Post article, psychic ability is connected to our spiritual expansion. The more we become aware of our interconnected and our connection to "God," or "all that is," the more psychically open we become. This is something I've been trying to explain to clients and others for years. Psychic abilty isn't some magical ability that some of us have, and others don't. It's our birthright.

Individuals often find that their power of sensing and knowing expands as they mature spiritually. These expanded capacities often involve the capacity to know yet-to-be events that lie in the future, as the unbroken stream of prophets, visionaries, seers, and shamans throughout history attests. A modern analog of this ancient ability to know the future is premonitions, sometimes called intuition, gut feelings, or sixth sense.

Premonitions are often regarded as unrelated to spirituality, but there are profound connections. The most obvious involves love, as in the following example.

. . .

By linking minds across space and time, premonitions reveal the oneness of which these scientists -- and many spiritual traditions -- speak. Premonitions therefore imply that we are not isolated individuals, but beings whose consciousness operates outside the present and beyond our physical body. They suggest that in some sense we are nonlocal or infinite in space in time. When we deeply sense this, we may become "transparent to the transcendent," as mythologist Joseph Campbell put it.

Through love, premonitions link human beings across space and time. There is no more fundamental aspect of spirituality than love. Premonitions are a window through which we glimpse our connection not only with one another, but with the Infinite as well.

"I wanna tell you a little secret, being the one is just like being in love. No one needs to tell you you are in love. You just know it, through and through; balls to bones."
