ESP is Made Up of Many Types of Abilities

Professional psychic John Edward is considered a well-known medium in the paranormal field. John Edward’s Evolve web series and his site, johnedward.net, both expand on his amazing ability to communicate with people who have passed away.
Most people who have psychic powers are considered to have extrasensory perception (ESP), also referred to as a sixth sense. Therefore, those individuals who possess ESP typically are able to sense things beyond what is apparent to the five senses.
ESP is based on one’s perceptions and, as a result, can take one of several forms. These forms can include clairvoyance (an ability to “see” something that is occurring somewhere else), telepathy (an ability to read a person’s thoughts), precognition (seeing into the future), mediumship (an ability to communicate with the dead), and retrocognition (an ability to look into the past).
Psychometry is included in the above list, as well. Psychics who possess this gift can convey details about a place or person by simply touching an object. Closely related to ESP is telekinesis, which is an ability to make alterations in the physical world with the power of the mind.
