Telepathy is a modern phenomenon. There are no traces or old documents that refer to it until the 20th century.
Since this subject started to be discussed, it has been sparking controversy between its detractors and defenders. Although science has always denied its existence, there are many who believe in telepathy as a phenomenon.
Telepathy is defined as the ability to convey thoughts from a distance, without the help of physical agents or technology that could cause this communication. In a simple way, it can be described as a wireless communication between two people’s brains, a way of talking using only one’s mind.
The Encyclopædia Britannica also defines telepathy as the “direct transference of thought from one person (sender or agent) to another (receiver or percipient) without using the usual sensory channels of communication, hence a form of extrasensory perception (ESP)”.
Every time a thought crosses your brain, this organ is stimulated and produces a certain amount of energy. When your thoughts are related to someone different from yourself, that energy which has been created automatically travels, so to speak, to its receiver, as if it were a mental bridge.
There are thousands of people around the world who claim to communicate in this way, using these psychic powers. However, for now, this phenomenon has not been recreated in a laboratory, in a controlled environment.
Although scientists affirm that there is no section of the brain that can act as a transmitter or receptor of this type of remote communication, there are other researchers who explain how to obtain telepathic powers.
The powers of telepathy are considered a gift of nature, a special ability that we are born with. If the person who is endowed with this ability is honest, it could be considered a gift.
There are experts who indicate that we are all born with the gift of telepathy (for example, who has not thought of a friend and then received a phone call from that person?). But the modern society does not allow us to use it. The reason for this is that the human being is focused on himself, on his fears and anxiety, and this comes between us and our inner essence, and stops us from paying attention to our senses.
Likewise, it has been observed that the relationship between two close people is often linked through telepathy, especially when it comes to mothers and children, and identical twins.
If you have telepathic powers, you can develop them through meditation, because they can help us awaken the solar plexus chakra and the third eye.
If you want to know how to obtain telepathic powers, the first thing you must accept is that there is no standard method, and the key to it is to learn how to let it flow.
As it was previously mentioned, the practice of some activities, such as meditation, yoga or even hypnosis allows you to connect with your inner being that sometimes lies idle with all its potential.
If you want to develop your mental telepathy, try to close your eyes and focus on a particular person. Ask this person to call you mentally and keep asking it for ten minutes, then thank this person and wait for the call (sometimes it can take minutes or even days).
Once it has worked, do the same thing again, and also ask this person to talk to you about a particular subject.
With practice, you can even ask the other person to do something, but these actions should always be positive ones. In the case of suggesting bad practices, these will turn against you three times worse.
If you meditate, another exercise you can do is sitting in the lotus position, with your elbows on your knees and your hands open. Then, you should calm your breathing and inhale deeply through your nose.
When you will have to exhale, your energy must be focused on the third eye chakra, articulating the “n” letter that will roll this energy centre, which allows you to perceive things beyond traditional senses.
Sometimes we can talk about feeling-based telepathy, that is, the desire of communicating using this gift with a loved one. If your partner is a telepath, there will be no problem to do it. Moreover, you will be able to communicate with each other in front of third parties without having to open your mouth and in a totally discreet way!
If your soulmate does not know how to use the telepathic communication, he or she may be able to grasp some of your messages, but it will be probably due to intuition or assumption.
Anyway, you can develop other type of non-spoken communication through glances, expressions, gestures or even the way you whisper, as an alternative to convey ideas, thoughts or feelings.
There are many films and books that use telepathy in their arguments. Depending on the author’s approach, the psychic powers will have their own unique and specific characteristics.
There is no doubt that one of the most popular works, in which telepathy has an important weight is “The Shining” by American writer Stephen King, which was adapted into a film and directed by Stanley Kubrick.
The word “shining” is used to define Danny’s ability in the book. He is a child who lives with an alcoholic father and his defenceless mother. That shinning allows him to predict what will happen in the future, as well as communicate telepathically with other people who have the same gift, and to whom he will ask for help using his psychic powers when things twist.
There are also telepaths in films, such as “X-Men”, “Lucy”, the “Star Wars” franchise or even in cartoons like “The World of David the Gnome”, since the tiny doctor, who is the main character, receives mental messages to know if there is any friend in trouble who requires his assistance.
