Clairvoyants Able to ‘See’ Energy Healing in Action, Study Finds

An important new scientific study shows that energy can be both channeled to produce healing, and “seen” through extended perception, beyond the five senses.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences, or IONS, has been studying the nature of reality through rigorous scientific exploration for nearly 50 years. In their latest study, IONS scientists set out to validate both the practice of reiki and the phenomenon of clairvoyance or “extended seeing.”                                                                                                                                                                                         

Dr. Helanè Wahbeh is the head of research at IONS, and has been studying energy medicine for decades.

“People who are energy medicine practitioners might call energy this system that runs throughout the body that they experience as energetic, magnetic, tingling, etc. around the body,” Wahbeh said. 

“One type of energy medicine that is commonly used around the world is called Reiki, and Reiki is a technique that originated in Japan. It’s based on the principle that the therapist can actually channel energy into the patient and activate their natural healing process — their innate ability to heal themselves, often releasing obstacles and allowing an optimal flow throughout the body.”

Reiki is one of the best-studied energy medicine modalities, having been shown in clinical studies to be effective in conditions including pain, anxiety, depression, cancer, and others. 

In this IONS experiment, researchers wanted to study the effect of Reiki on people with a variety of physical and mental health conditions to test the principle that the modality uses a universal life force energy and can therefore be applied to anyone for any condition.

“We had six Reiki masters with extensive experience give 30-minute sessions to 40 participants. The participant would come in, they would lay down in this reclining chair, and the Reiki practitioner would say that they were going to start their session, they would place their hands on different parts of their body and direct the Reiki energy for 30 minutes,” Wahbeh said.

The results were profound.

“We saw that, yes, well-being — which is our primary clinical outcome — significantly improved from the session immediately after, and also one week later, and that negative affect also improved,” Wahbeh said. “Participants had multiple, different types of health conditions; memory impairment, depression, anxiety, and acute injury. So these are four very different types of health issues, and yet across all of the participants we saw an improvement in well-being, and this supports the notion that Reiki practitioners suggest, which is that Reiki is universal; it’s a universal life-force energy and can help anybody.”

While these results were significant in and of themselves, researchers incorporated another fascinating component into the experiment. While the reiki sessions were being conducted, six experienced clairvoyant seers observed the sessions.

Various forms of data were then collected to determine whether the information the clairvoyants were receiving through their extended perception was accurate. Researchers then analyzed the data to answer several important questions.

“Do the different perceivers perceive in the same way? What is the corroboration in what they receive during the session? Did the Reiki masters’ answers match up with the perceivers? Did it match up with the participant?” Wahbeh asked.

What researchers found was groundbreaking. To learn about these fascinating findings, check out Part 2 of this Gaia News special investigation.

How to Protect Yourself from Psychic Attacks?

How to Protect Yourself from Psychic Attacks?

Psychic attacks may manifest in the dream world or through energetic impacts on the body in the waking world. They are mental intrusions, efforts from free-floating energies or specific people, to enter your psyche and make some kind of detrimental impact or extract information.

Try not to fear since 1) the greatest defense tool is the power of love and light; 2) negative energies thrive in the presence of negative thoughts or emotions. And 3) we will provide psychic protection using the principles of love and positivity. Some psychic attacks require embodied warrior energy, the assistance of professional healers and shamans, or both. Before getting into psychic self-defense, we need to explore and understand what psychic attacks are and how to identify them.

What is a Psychic Attack?

A psychic attack refers to a phenomenon in which negative or harmful energies, intentions, or influences are directed toward an individual’s energetic or psychic space. These attacks are often believed to be carried out by individuals who possess psychic or metaphysical abilities, intending to cause harm, discomfort, or disruption to the target’s well-being.

Signs of a Psychic Attack

The impact of a psychic attack on someone can be significant and varied, affecting them on multiple levels:

  • Emotional distress: Psychic attacks can trigger intense and unexplained emotional turmoil, such as sudden mood swings, anxiety, fear, or depression. The victim may experience heightened emotional sensitivity and find it challenging to manage their feelings.
  • Energy drain: Psychic attacks can lead to a sense of exhaustion and fatigue that isn’t easily explainable by physical reasons. This drain on energy can leave the victim feeling depleted and lacking vitality.
  • Physical symptoms: Some people believe that psychic attacks can manifest as physical symptoms, such as headaches, body aches, and other discomforts that have no apparent medical cause.
  • Disrupted thoughts: The victim might experience persistent negative thoughts, mental fog, or confusion. Their ability to focus, make decisions, or think clearly can be compromised.
  • Sleep disturbances: Psychic attacks can also disrupt sleep patterns, leading to insomnia, nightmares, or a general sense of restlessness during sleep.
  • Relationship strain: The negative energies from psychic attacks can impact personal relationships, causing misunderstandings, conflicts, and an overall sense of disconnect from loved ones.
  • Spiritual imbalance: For those who are spiritually inclined, psychic attacks can disrupt their connection to their inner selves, higher consciousness, or spiritual practices. This can lead to feelings of spiritual emptiness or detachment.
  • Blockages and obstacles: Psychic attacks may create barriers in the victim’s life, hindering their progress in various areas such as career, relationships, and personal growth.

It’s important to note that while belief in psychic attacks varies widely, the psychological and emotional impact experienced by individuals who feel they are under such attacks is real.

Types of Psychic Attacks

The concept of psychic attacks encompasses a variety of negative energetic or psychic influences that can impact an individual. While views about them vary across cultures and belief systems, here are some common types often discussed:

  • Thought form projection: This type involves someone intentionally directing negative thoughts, emotions, or intentions toward a target. These projected energies can create a sense of discomfort or distress for the recipient.
  • Energy vampirism: Energy vampires are believed to draw and drain the life force or vital energy of others. These individuals may have a chronic need for attention, validation, or energy, leaving the victim feeling depleted and drained.
  • Curses and hexes: Curses are believed to be intentional acts where negative energies or intentions are invoked to cause harm to the recipient. Hexes are similar, with the intent of causing misfortune, bad luck, or suffering.
  • Psychic cording: Psychic cords are energetic connections between individuals, often formed through emotional interactions. Negative cords can drain a person’s energy and make them feel controlled or manipulated by another person.
  • Evil eye: The evil eye is a belief that someone can cast a negative gaze upon another person, inadvertently causing harm or misfortune. The recipient might experience bad luck, illness, or emotional distress as a result.
  • Black magic or dark rituals: These involve the use of occult practices to harness and direct negative energies toward a specific individual. The intention is often to harm or control the victim.
  • Telepathic attacks: These attacks involve sending harmful or negative thoughts directly into a person’s mind through telepathic means, causing psychological distress.
  • Spirit attachment: Some believe that negative entities or spirits can attach themselves to an individual, leading to emotional, mental, and physical disturbances.
  • Environmental energy influences: Certain places or environments are believed to carry negative energies that can affect individuals who spend time there. This can lead to feelings of discomfort, unease, and negativity.
  • Dream manipulation: Psychic attacks can also occur in dreams, where negative entities or energies disrupt sleep, cause nightmares, or create feelings of fear and anxiety upon waking.

Regardless of one’s beliefs, addressing these forms of psychic attack typically requires practicing self-care, emotional resilience, and these simple yet effective practices.

5 Practices to Protect Yourself From Psychic Attacks

1. Clearing Ceremony

Use plant medicine, like sage and crystal allies, to clear negative energy and spirits from your environment and energetic field. There are many variations of these ceremonies: try buying white sage and sweet grass. Burn the white sage and brush the smoke around your whole body, then continue to fan the smoke around your house and, particularly around your bed, if you have night terrors.

While you sage yourself and your environment, concentrate on banishing  negative or dark energy by holding light and love in your third eye. Next, repeat the process with sweet grass. As you bless yourself and your space with sweet grass, invite in positive energy, guiding spirits, and love and speak the following affirmation:

I release negative energies so that I may serve my higher purpose.

2. Cord Cutting and Earth Cording

Try the powerful practice of cord-cutting at night and Earth cording during the day. Before you go to bed, imagine a cord between yourself and any person or thing that comes to mind originating from your belly. Using a pair of imaginary scissors, cut the cord between yourself and any external energy that you envision.

You can envision this as a series of cords or perform the exercise cord-by-cord. In the morning, just after you awake, envision a cord connecting you from your belly to the center of the Earth. The cord is strong, flexible, omnipresent, and nurturing. Before bed, as you cut the cords, say this intention aloud:

I release energetic attachments so that I may serve my higher purpose.

Saltwater can also be used for a more powerful ceremony. Begin by gathering all the energetic cords from your chakras into one handful. Using the other hand, slice the air between your body and the handful and then dump them into the saltwater. Repeat again with the cords coming out of your back chakras.
