A psychic reading is an attempt at discerning information by using heightened abilities of perception, which are basically extensions of the five human senses i.e. touch, taste, sight, instinct, and sound. Thought these readings receive a lot of skepticism and controversy, interest in them continues to grow due to intense belief in them by some parties and individuals. There are quite a few types such as palm reading, numerology, tarot reading, and aura reading to mention a few,not forgetting the most common one which is astrology. Here we will focus our analysis on a kind of psychic reading called ‘psychometry’, read on to know more.
What is Psychometry?
Derived from Greek and directly translating to ‘spirit measuring’, this is a kind of live psychic reading whereby one can make relevant associations and perceive characters and events associated with a person by holding a material object belonging to the person. Those who practice it are called psychometrists and while there are authors who write that psychic readers with this ability have been used by law enforcement agencies on some cases, a large majority of the agencies polled don’t use the services of psychics as they do not believe them to be credible. There is still a number out there who believe in them and continue to vouch for their credibility.
To Believe or Not to Believe?
The question that nags at the mind is whether or not psychometry is real, and from some witness accounts it would be tempting to believe in it, but then there’s the issue of subjectivity in the whole issue, as believers tend to have a response and solution to every problem posed to them by skeptics, for instance, how is it that the object used to ‘divine’ only features the characters, emotions, and events relevant to the person who happens to own them, and not any of those who may have come into contact with the items, or a previous owner for that matter? Another issue is the fact that no scientific experiment has ever been done or been favorable to the existence of this power.
It may be evident that I harbor some skepticism on the matter but in the end, it is solely up to you, the reader, to decide how you feel about the whole issue, and until the day a unanimous decision is made on the issue, we are all free to believe what we may on the issue while the practitioners of this talent or ability keep doing what they do, after all, ‘willing buyer, willing seller’!
