I was in Manhattan last year and I was amazed to see so many psychic and clairvoyant centers. I heard some psychic was paid a huge bill from someone who had lost his child and this psychic helped to communicate with him. This made me wonder “Why do Americans believe in psychics so much”. Afterall, psychics, occultism has its root in an underdeveloped part of the world.
I was amazed to see American newspaper quoting psychic prediction about famous personalities.
Whats more this belief is increasing!
The Gallup Poll recently updated its audit of Americans’ beliefs in a variety of these types of phenomena. The results suggest a significant rise in belief in a number of these experiences over the past decade, including Halloween-related issues as haunted houses, ghosts, and witches. Only, one of the experiences tested has seen a drop in belief since 1990: devil possession. Overall, half or more of Americans believe in two of the issues: psychic or spiritual healing, and extrasensory perception (ESP), and a third or more believe in such things as haunted houses, possession by the devil, ghosts, telepathy, extraterrestrial beings having visited earth, and clairvoyance.
There are now thousands of groups in Facebook and other social media discussing occultism, paranormal, UFOs, ESP and alien. If you search groups discussing God, you will find very less. The belief in negative God or black magic has increased worldwide. In India too, more and more people are worshipping the negative God or Black God called Shani than of other benevolent Hindu God.
So, from where this belief is coming from! is it just because of the stress of modern day lifestyle people are seeking help from psychics than medical professional! Or Psychics are a modern-day phenomenon.
Interestingly, Younger Americans — those 18-29 — are much more likely to believe that extraterrestrials have visited earth, and in clairvoyance than those who are older.
Gallup’s study shows Americans with the highest levels of education are more likely than others to believe in psychic abilities.
Psychic abilities a part of Evolution!
I discussed this issue of increase in belief into occultism with an astrologer in India. He told me, this belief in psychic is bound to rise. This is a part of human evolution. After a thousand year perhaps there will be people talking to each other through their mind or telepathy. The doctor will heal the sick with his mind power. Psychic abilities are the next big revolution in the history of mankind.
