A sixth sense dream will include aspects of what the parapsychologist J. B. Rhine called Extra Sensory Perception (Usually abridged to “ESP” and sometimes called “psi,” after the Greek letter. Psi, psychic, and psychical are synonyms for extra sensory perception.) Extrasensory perception (ESP) is defined as the ability to acquire information without the benefit of the senses.
ESP (The Sixth Sense) falls into four general categories:
- Telepathy — a mind-to-mind communication or a person’s awareness of another’s thoughts, without any communication through normal perceptions.
- Clairvoyance — knowledge acquired of an object or event without the use of the known senses.
- Precognition — foresight a person may have of another person’s future thoughts, or of future events.
- Psychokinesis (PK) – mind over matter or a person’s ability to influence a physical object or an event, by thinking about it. For example ‘spoon bending’. Some parapsychologists consider that psychokinesis is not strictly extra-sensory “Perception”.
One of the best ways to test ESP and your sixth sense for yourself is through the study of your dreams. You have dreams every night so there is a huge amount of material for you to work with. Once you learn to remember dreams and make a point of writing them down every morning, then you will soon identify a few dreams that are extraordinary. They may reveal information that you could not have possibly have known except by paranormal means.
Awakening the Sixth Sense
Many parapsychologists use Zener cards to test ESP ability. There are five kinds of card: a star, three vertical wavy lines, a plus sign, a circle and a square. A deck of Zener cards consists of five of each symbol. In ESP tests for clairvoyance or precognition the cards might be shuffled and the subject then tries to guess the order of the cards. Or a sender might look at a card and then try to telepathically communicate the perception to a receiver.
Packs of Zener cards are available in the shops so you can try a few experiments of your own. Try setting up a few experiments with you friends. One of you can select a card and place it under you pillow before retiring while the other attempts to guess the card in the morning. A dream may reveal the card but as your intuition works overtime as you sleep you may be more likely to guess the card correctly when you wake up in the morning. You would need to do the experiment over many nights to ensure that you r results are above chance.

There are twenty-five cards in the Zener deck and five kinds of card so there is a one in five chance (or 20% chance) that the sender has selected any given card. A correct “guess” is called a “hit”. Anything significantly higher than 20% hits in the long run would indicate that something other than chance is at work.
