Not another psychic book about oracle cards, crystal balls and tea leaves
The Sensible Psychic is a level-headed guide to true psychic channeling and mediumship that dispels many of the modern myths and misconceptions regarding psychic ability, supernatural perception, and the so-called 'clair senses.'
The Sensible Psychic: A Leading-Edge Guide To True Psychic Perception And The Supernatural Experiences Of Everyday Psychics And Mediums explores both the spirituality and science of psychic channeling and mediumship.
This trailblazing guide is an honest, no-nonsense investigation of the authentic abilities of everyday psychics and mediums and a forthright explanation of true psychic perception and supernatural channeling, instead of just being another 'psychic’ book about oracle card divination, numerology, astrology, crystal ball scrying, or reading tea leaves in a cup.
The Sensible Psychic bridges the gap between a rational left-brain and an intuitive right-brain approach to psychic perception by finding a level-headed middle-ground between theory and practice, physics and metaphysics, and science and spirituality.
It is a sober, user-friendly account that features both new and revised psychic terminology, as well as a re-imagined conceptual model for psychic perception that challenges an outmoded, yet persistent misconception: psychics and mediums do not 'sense,' they perceive.
The must-have new resource for sensible psychics and mediums
A redefining reference text for professional psychics and mediums who prefer a pragmatic approach to psychic channeling and mediumship based on relatable concepts, accurate representation, sensible science, and common sense terminology.
A self-empowering primer for developing psychics and mediums to expand their psychic vocabulary and gain a deeper understanding of their metaphysical gifts without the confusing myths, misnomers and misinformation.
A no-nonsense compendium for psi enthusiasts and esoteric seekers who are keen to investigate psychic phenomena, mystical experiences and the supernatural beyond pop culture ‘hocus pocus’ and mainstream stereotypes.
An informative guide for clients who consult with professional psychics and mediums and need reliable information to find trustworthy, authentic service providers without the typical misrepresentations and 'woo-woo' clichés.
Myth-busting real talk that answers many puzzling questions
The book's title not only signifies a more 'sensible' approach, meaning ‘to be reasonable, well-informed, and have good judgment;' but also plays on the other meaning of 'sensible,' namely ‘perceptible to the senses or capable of sensation.’ This is the fundamental misconception challenged in this book: psychics and mediums do not 'sense,' they perceive.
Psychic Ability & Development
The Sensible Psychic adresses many common questions regarding true psychic ability and psychic development.
Psychic Tap Dancing
Most books on psychic ability tend to ‘tap dance’ around the true nature of psychic perception. Another problem is they are often the work of authors and scholars who are non-psychic.
Many of these books discuss psychic perception using only the standard parapsychology terms like 'telepathy,' or go-to clichés like 'intuition,' while others typically feature a random collection of divination methods, occult techniques, new age beliefs, paranormal phenomena, or esoteric practices that are not actual psychic abilities, nor true forms of psychic perception.
Convincing The 'Muggles'
The deeply cynical reader will not find in these pages what they are looking for. Instead of trying to convince the ‘muggles,’ as many others have attempted, this book is for sensible psychic practitioners and their clients, students, fans, and supporters. It is for the reader who needs no convincing of psychic phenomena, because they already know what they know, based on their own experiences. It is for people who need no proof, just more reliable information, clarification, representation, and further validation of their own psychic experiences.
The Clair Senses Myth
There is a long-standing tradition in esoteric teachings, metaphysics, and the occult that each of the ordinary five senses has an equivalent 'astral sense' or a metaphysical 'counterpart.’ Herein lies the origins of much dysfunctional psychic lingo and bizarre myths that have become prevalent.
Psychics and mediums do not have 'super senses' or astral 'sense organs.' Instead of promoting true understanding of psychic perception, the use of these 'sensory' concepts have served to only create more misrepresentation in a field already bearing a reputation for being disingenuous, superstitious, weird, and rife with ‘woo-woo.’
The Sender-Receiver Myth
The traditional 'tin can phone' model of 'receiving incoming messages’ is a gross underestimation of the mystical, numinous, complex nature of true psychic perception and mediumship. Psychics and mediums are not mind-brain 'receivers.' They are mind-soul perceivers.
The reception myth is one of the leading causes of misinformation and myths regarding psychic phenomena. It is also one of the reasons why traditional parapsychology research is not always highly successful.
Psychic perception is not a long-distance ‘phone call’ that transmits information from another time or place. It is rather the establishing of resonance with energy information or akashic data that is immediately available in the here and now of the universal consciousness.
Includes new and revised psychic terminology and a groundbreaking, new conceptual model for psychic perception
The Transmission Myth
The conventional model of psychic 'sensing’ is problematic because it promotes the mechanistic idea of ‘extrasensory inputs’ transmitted through time and space, and over a distance, to the psychic or medium from an external sender or source.
This notion of 'transmitting' is a fundamentally flawed assumption, yet one that stubbornly continues to define how many psychic practitioners and scholars conceive of psychic perception, channeling and mediumship.
Instead of this outmoded, misconstrued notion The Sensible Psychic offers a new conceptual model that characterizes authentic psychic perception more accurately, to align with current trends in parapsychology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, metaphysics, and spirituality.

Barnes & Noble
I’ve been trying to sort out my abilities and experiences all my life. Mainstream and long accepted definitions or norms do not always hold up to the ways that psychic and mediumship abilities themselves seem to be manifesting with less sharply divided edges. This author perceived that and proposes some new terms to accommodate those changes. This book is a great read and chock full of helpful information!
