ESP, the Extraordinary Experiences of Ordinary PeopleBook - 2005
Can some people really see the future, read other peoples' minds, or psychically observe events unfold, as they happen, even when they take place hundreds or even thousands of miles away from them? Yes, they can, declares clinical psychologist Dr. Sally Rhine Feather, daughter of the late, renowned ESP researcher Dr. J.B. Rhine, whose pioneering laboratory experiments at Duke University brought scientific credibility to paranormal research.Using real case histories from the Rhine Research Center's ever-growing database of more than 14,000 ESP reports - the world's largest collection of ESP experiences - Dr. Feather will share with you fascinating psychic experiences that cover a broad range of types, from avoiding injuries and accidents to predicting the death of family members; from finding stolen cars and lost pets to catching cheating spouses; from winning bets and contests to foreseeing the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941and the 9-11 terrorist attack on America.A trained parapsychologist as well as psychologist, using the stories of more than 200 ESP experiencers, Dr. Feather explains what ESP is and how it operates through dreams, intuition, and visual and auditory hallucinations. She explains the compelling scientific evidence for the reality of ESP, covers the research on precognition, clairvoyance and telepathy from more than 50 years of laboratory experiments, including the latest research on the fascinating role played by our personality, ourpsychological, physical and emotional states in terms of helping or hindering ESP. Dr. Feather examines the psychological impact such unusual experiences can have on your life and offers you helpful rules for successfully integrating these ESP experiences into your life.A 2001 Gallup Poll found that half of all Americans believe ESP is real, and 65 million Americans have personally experienced ESP. These stories of the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people will intrigue and inspire you as well as convince you that a "sixth sense" is within the power of our minds.
