The Development of Psychic Abilities by Edwin Harkness Spina

Many spiritual seekers are fascinated by the development of psychic abilities like remote viewing, telepathy and astral projection. While seeming incredible to some skeptics, the unlocking of these abilities is a natural consequence of pursuing a spiritual discipline aimed at direct communion with God or the ultimate reality. This is the path of the mystic.

In the process of studying and applying the universal laws which govern the universe, a student of mysticism will begin to unveil his or her inner senses. That is, the counterparts of his or her objective senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell will awaken, which are often referred to as psychic abilities.

There are two aspects to prepare you to unlock these abilities:

1) Awareness that they are real; and
2) Clearing your energy centers, especially the pineal and pituitary glands.


Remote Viewing

Remote viewing is the name given to the ability to see objects that are distantly located in time or space using your “inner vision.” In the late ’70s, researchers at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) conducted tests under a Defense Department grant.

Using psychics, they were able to develop a set of rigorous protocols. Amazingly, what they discovered was that almost anyone could learn to remote view. At this point the program left the lab and operated under various names, such as Grill Flame and Stargate, to spy on the Soviets, among other things.

While seemingly new, this practice is an aspect of the more general concept of clairvoyance, which mystics have practiced for ages. The remote viewing program was officially “halted” in the ’90s. Many of the participants who worked in these programs, as well as other government programs that develop psychic abilities or ESP, have spoken to me of their experiences.


Telepathy is the ability to send and receive thoughts using only your inner senses. It is another skill mystics have practiced for ages. The object of mysticism is not primarily to develop such skills, but rather to experience direct communion with God or the ultimate reality. However, while working toward this goal your inner senses will begin to emerge.

Everyone has latent psychic abilities. Over 70% of Americans report having had some sort of psychic experience. You likely have had your own. The first step to developing these abilities is to understand that they are real.

Astral Projection or Out-of-Body Experience

Astral projection or astral travel is the mystic ability to project your psychic body separately from your physical body to enable it to travel through time and space. An out-of-body experience is another name, but astral projection and astral travel implies the conscious, intentional ability and not merely a chance event that may occur while sleeping.

The Illuminati

Throughout the ages, there have been stories of secret societies that help members to develop mystical skills. Dan Brown, author of the NY Times bestseller, The DaVinci Code, refers to one secret society, the Illuminati, as “one of the most powerful unseen forces in global politics.”

Illuminati literally means “Illuminated Ones.” In theory, members of this group would be advanced souls trying to uplift humanity. Sadly, when most people refer to the Illuminati, they are referring to a number of secret groups that have no interest in humanity’s welfare.

The good news is that there are a number of “Illuminated Ones” that act behind the scenes to thwart the evil plans of the bad apples. These are the true mystics, seeking the welfare of all. As more people “wake up” to what is happening, the faster these wicked plans will be overturned.

Why is this knowledge kept secret?

It is easy to grasp why spy agencies would not want to share their knowledge with the public. For other reasons, neither do the mystics. By tradition, only those deemed worthy received access to these secrets. In addition, those who violated their oaths of secrecy and revealed this hidden knowledge were severely punished.

In today’s world, many of these “mysteries” are publicly available. The problem is that you may not have the time or inclination to study and benefit from them. Even when you do make the effort, the information is often disjointed and difficult to sort out. Discernment is needed.


Your two most important psychic centers are located in the center of your brain: your pituitary and pineal glands. These glands correspond to the sixth and seventh chakras of eastern thought and account for 75% of your psychic abilities.

Intuition is your higher self communicating with you via these two energy centers. (Gut-feel is the stimulation of the nerve ganglia in the pit of your stomach and, while often valuable, is better defined as instinct.)

Your glands can be activated safely by sacred vowel sounds. The sound “Aum” or “Om” is one such sacred sound. Chanting it stimulates the pineal gland. Another way to activate these glands is by energy. Since their function is to step down the higher frequency vibrations of the higher planes, clearly, the energy required to stimulate these glands must also be of a higher vibration.

When you clear out these centers, you will more easily perceive the more subtle vibrations of your higher self and these higher worlds. Furthermore, by flushing the discordant thoughts, feelings and emotions from your mental and emotional bodies, you will be less likely to be distracted by negative, stagnant energies and more easily commune with your True Self, i.e. God.

    Thanks Ed for your definitions of different types of psychic phenomena.
    It would be great if you could tell me a bit about how it feels when your inner senses, as compared to your outer senses, awaken.

    Hi Leila,
    If you can see, hear, smell, taste and feel, then your outer (objective) senses are working. If you can get impressions without using your outer senses, then your inner (subjective) senses are awakening.

    For example, you get a bad feeling. You meditate and ask for the cause of the bad feeling. You get an impression of your son. You “imagine” what it would be like to be him and you feel sadness. You might also hear, smell or taste something. You call him up and find out he broke up with his girlfriend.

    The more you practice the better you get.
