Demystifying the Paranormal

One of the newer goals of Paranormal research is to take the mystery out of the paranormal without loss of respect for the early pioneers and for the varieties of the subjects involved. Even where “scientific” understanding is still lacking, experiential evidence has its place. 

The evolving body of evidence for psychic phenomena demands a careful re-examination of our thinking and a restructuring of our traditional views about human life and experience. The fact that the mind seems capable of experiencing realities beyond the known limits of sensory perception challenges our conventional systems and raises new questions about the nature of reality and human existence itself.

A major challenge facing us today is a riveting, demystifying probe of the so-called paranormal that will explain its nature and unleash its empowering potentials. The psychic experience, whether voluntary or involuntary, is always empowerment driven. Discovering its capacity for empowerment requires attention to the psychic event and understanding its significance.
