First off, know you are in good company. A 2005 Gallup poll discovered that 3 in 4 Americans believe in the paranormal. In a similar poll around the same time, 25% of people said they had had a direct spiritual experience of their own. The days of hushed-voices about psychic phenomena have been replaced by an explosion of ways to experience the paranormal for yourself.
So if there is something spiritually going on around you, why not become aware of it; why not learn to use it like any other natural resource. The truth is… connecting to a greater reality can reap real-life benefits.
