Psychic Development

Classes called "Psychic Development Classes" have been popular for years, and indications are that they will remain so for years to come. People simply want to develop and increase their psychic abilities.

In a real Psychic Development Class you should be shown how to develop your psychic abilities and be able to make practical use of them in your daily life.

Classes in Psychic Development should include, but not be limited to the following:

1) Divinatory methods

12) Self-hypnosis
13) Astral projection and astral travel
