Psychic researcher Pete A. Sanders Jr. knew early on that psych ability was real, leading him to spend his education at MIT studying brain science and biomedical chemistry, hoping to understand the complex relationship between the brain, the mind and the nervous system.
MIT professor Dr. Jerome Letvin inspired Sanders when he opened a course about nerve study stating: "I am not going to teach what we know about nerves. Everything we know would take about two class sessions to tell you, and is relatively boring. Instead I am going to talk about what we don't know about nerves."
Dr. Letvin's approach changed Sander's outlook on life, spurring him to pursue a career studying the brain's sensory abilities and their connection to ESP. The following is an excerpt from Sanders' book entitled You are Psychic! in which he discusses the relationship between Earth's energy patterns and our psychic abilities – which he believes we all have.
Greater awareness equals more security
"By learning to focus on the Psychic Reception Areas you will receive stronger psychic impressions, strong enough to divert your attention from your physical senses. With practice, even subtle energy patterns will be discernible.
"Best of all, you will be able to develop your extrasensory abilities safely and steadily. When you are able to turn them on at will you can also turn them off to prevent the possibility of a psychic overload. Additionally, you will have the increased security that greater awareness and skill always bring.
"All our senses, physical and psychic, function in part by receiving and responding to some form of energy. Physical vision depends on the energy of light waves striking the eye. Physical hearing senses the vibrational energy of sound waves.
"Taste and smell function through chemical energy reactions between certain molecules and the receptor cells of the tongue and olfactory areas. The psychic senses follow a similar pattern, except that the energies they interact with cannot be discerned physically or measured by current technology."
Psychic senses are invisible, but that doesn't mean they don't exist
"That should not deter you from exploring your psychic ability. Many forms of energy affect your life whether you understand them or not. Two hundred years ago little was understood about electricity, but electric energy existed. Though scientifically unexplained, lightning struck, electric eels gave shocks, the nervous system functioned. Even today, you may not fully understand how electricity works although you use it routinely.
"Consider what happens when you turn on a light. You don't need to understand how electrons travel back and forth in the wires. Neither do you need to be aware that for each of your thoughts and movements the electrical energy that is your brain and nervous system has processed millions of messages.
"You don't need to know that each of those brain messages involves billions of complex exchanges of chemical energy into electrical energy. Instead, you have learned by experience how to make those forms of energy work for you in practical ways even though you may not know how they work. You just raise your hand, flip the switch, and the light goes on.
"You need to adopt the same approach to using your psychic senses. They receive the psychic energy that is emitted by all people, places, and objects. Because you are energy, you can receive and identify those extrasensory vibrations.
"Much about the human brain is still unknown, and we use the word 'mind' as a sort of shorthand to describe mental abilities that go beyond what we know about the physical wiring of the cortex. Brain scientists cannot yet explain exactly why or how we dream, how memory is structured, or how we form a creative thought."
People, places and objects emit waves of energy that may be picked up on by your psychic senses
"Yet every day we dream, we remember, and we think. Or consider the mystery of hypnosis. It has been studied and used successfully for over a century to reduce or eliminate pain (it has even been used in surgery instead of anesthesia), to help us control addictions, to uncover repressed memories, yet we still don't have a precise idea as to how or why hypnosis works.
"The fact is that science today comprehends probably less than a tenth of what our brain and mind can do. In a world where many scientists now believe once unbelievable things, for instance, that all matter exists in ten dimensions; that time slows as you travel faster; that particles called tachyons, which can arrive at their destination before they leave their point of origin, may indeed exist; that the universe is literally a sea of interchangeable and interacting energy. In such a world, the concept of psychic sensitivity, of ESP, is no longer a farfetched fantasy.
"Therefore it is not reasonable to resign yourself to waiting until some researcher announces: 'We have now discovered exactly how extrasensory perception operates. You now have permission to use your psychic senses.' Even though science does not yet understand how psychic messages are processed, you can experience and use them in your daily life."
