The Courage To Work In The Psychic Trenches!
As Psychics (Intuitives, Mediums, etc.), we desire to be valued for offering a legitimate service utilizing a proven and verifiable skill, but are we doing our part to help support that outcome?
Despite the fact that mainstream society still doesn’t accept the validity of Psi (psychic ability), there are numerous scientific organizations working with the awareness that it does exist. I am thrilled to know that there’s a group of scholarly individuals seeking to find the truth about our human potential. There’s still a huge problem though, and that is the gap which exists between the scientific community which embraces Psi and those who utilize it in their daily lives.
When science makes a discovery and creates a system that allows mankind to take advantage of that discovery, society embraces the new system and everybody wins. For example, as science began to understand quantum physics, the possibility of micro-computers became a reality. Unfortunately, when it comes to the discovery and understanding of Psi, the system being affected isn’t one of technology but rather one of human capacity. It is the person which is affected by the discovery of Psi. We are the micro-computer!
For those who are already aware of the existence and utilization of Psi, we are working in what I call “the psychic trenches.” It is here where the real battle is being fought. Scientists can study Psi, but what are they studying? They are studying people – those who have the ability. We need scientific discovery to let us know what is valid and true, but at the heart of the psychic battle lies the need for human subjects – those who successfully utilize Psi. The only way science can succeed is by taking those of us who work in “the psychic trenches” and put us to the test.
This kind of work takes courage! Not just for the scientists who need to overcome traditional views, but for the many psychics who seek to do their work despite a skeptical scientific community and a fearful and uncertain society. If this battle for the legitimacy of Psi is to be won, not just for us but for everyone, then it’s going to be done by those who brave working in the trenches. It will be won by those who dare to use their psychic gifts to their fullest extent. It will be won by those who clearly can convey facts and evidence which supports their Psi. It will be won by those who dare to share that gift with the world and those around them. It will be won by those who face both skeptical critics and religious critics. It will be won by the honing of skill and the bravery to exhibit that skill until the bitter end.
On the other hand, those who possess and utilize Psi can not win the war without science, and science can not win the war without us – those proud and brave ones who utilize Psi. Together, science and psychic creates an unstoppable force. We are a team which needs to support one another. Those who utilize Psi need to know and understand the scientific aspects of their abilities and recognize what is intuitive versus that which is truly Psi. Likewise, science must begin to embrace the Psychics and seek to understand their abilities.
Like soldiers and generals on a field of battle, one can not win the war without the other!
