An introduction to HSP,
Heightened Sensory Perception
To understand HSP Heighted Sensory Perception
We need to know ESP Extra Sensory Perception
To understand ESP, we must know something about NSP.
NSP Normal Sensory Perception is done by the brain & mind as “process of Sensation and perception”.
There are “five sense organs” in the human body for “5 sensations””.
[A] 2 EYES for Optical sensations. [b] 2 Ears for Auditory sensation.
- 1 Nose for Olfactory sensations.
- 1 Tongue for Gustatory sensation.
- Over all skin receptors for Tactile Sensation.
All these sense organs are connected by the “respective nerves” with the Brain, to conduct the stimuli received from external environment, just to Sense, by the brain, in order to complete the process of sensation.
“Five Sensory Perceptions” by the brain.
After the sensation received by the brain, the “process of Perception” is started in the sensory area of the brain by the “human mind”.
There are 5 sensory perception centers in the brain, for 5 types of Perceptions.
- Optical perception as light, vision. Shape, forms, figure, reading etc.
- Auditory perception as sound vibrations, listening
- Olfactory perception as smelling etc.
- Gustatory perception as taste, touch etc.
- Tactile perception as touch, feel hot cold, hard smooth, rough etc.
Recognition of Perception by the human mind:-
These perceptions are further processed for “proper recognition” by the person at his personal level.
Recognition is the process, of identifying, analyzing, classifying, Understanding, matching with previously stored memory, all at its Individual level as recognized perceptions, which are then stored as Perceived & recognized memory, done by the human mind.
Ilchi Lee has worked tirelessly on ways to incorporate his Brain Education Techniques into everything from efforts to solve senior health issues to public school educations. This has brought him around the world and earned him meetings with powerful national leaders. Brain Education is a system of learning that teaches individuals how to control their thoughts and emotions in order to make sure that only positive ideas and reactions are allowed to enter the mind. Additionally, students learn how to get the most out of their brain potential.
To fully awaken your brain and learn how you fit into the universe as a whole try Ilchi Lee’s five steps:
Awaken the Senses
We have five senses but often use only our eyes. Learn to develop your touch, taste, sense of smell and hearing through meditation and Purposefully using each sense on a daily basis. Eat more slowly to enjoy food’sflavors and aromas. Run your hands through the grass, pet a dog and enjoy the many textures of life by feeling them with your fingertips.
Simply being more aware of your senses helps to awaken your brain.
Instead of having a thought or idea and being fixated on carrying it out, allow yourself to be flexible. This is also necessary when you are working towards goals. The way you plan your journey will not always be what happens. Know that there are many possibilities that lead to what you are looking for. You must also learn to be flexible with your body. Yoga and exercise can help you to learn how to be more malleable physically.
Heal Yourself by Releasing Stored Emotions
Holding on to anger, fear and anxiety is not beneficial to your well-being. Instead, negative emotions can hold you back. While fleeting and temporarily experiencing these feelings is natural and healthy, keeping them in is not. Learn to release emotions that are harmful to you so you can begin again.
Use your Entire Brain
Many people claim they are a right or left-sided thinker. While this may be true of your thought process, you can still use both sides of your brain by actively engaging in both creative and logical thoughts. Trying new things like painting, cooking and theater can help those who are right-brained, and math and history is useful for developing your brain if you find you are more of an artsy, left-brained person.
If you stop the four processes above, your brain will return to it’ pre- awakened state. Continue using your senses, being flexible, letting go of emotions and using all your thought processes to continue developing spiritually.
Esp is mental telepathy, our other sense.
Mind reading, clairvoyance, precognition are all perceived through mental telepathy, . Mental telepathy makes possible the “knowing” about past future or current events that is not supposed to be part of our knowledge. When someone demonstrates an ability to send and receive information that is not part of their five ordinary senses, it is placed in the realm of “extra” almost as though it was bizarre or abnormal and not part of the human psyche or sense abilities. However, telepathic ability is available to all those willing to practice and learn how to increase this talent that is given to everyone at birth.
Right Brain Senses or HSP Games (HSP-Higher Sensory Perception)
Below are examples of 4 types of HSP activities you can play with your child. 1. TELEPATHY
Telepathy is the ability to transfer thoughts. In the following games, your child will try to make a successful guess of what is visualized in your mind.
a) Animal Cards
- 2 sets of 5 cards, each containing pictures of animals like giraffe, panda, elephant, bear or deer should be provided, 1 set for you and 1 set for your child.
- 5 cards should be lined up face up in front of your child and the other set of 5 cards lined up face down in front of you.
- Take one of the cards in your hand, stare at it intensely until you see the image your mind. Then say, “From among your 5 cards, pick up the card that is same with the one in my hand now.”
- Do this 5 times.
- b) Mind Reading
- Mother and child face each other.
- Ask your child to guess what’s on your mind. (Decide a category firsteg. shape, color, animal, transportation vehicle, alphabet, etc.Out of the five attempts, your child will probably do well to choose the correct card once, at first. With further practice, your child will succeed all 5 times.
Clairvoyance is the ability to make a successful guess of the identity of hidden things eg. cards, or to identify the color of balls in a box. It is different from telepathy. The child is being
clairvoyant as the mother herself does not know the answer, so the child is not reading her mind.
a) The Game of Identifying Cards
Line up 5 picture cards or game cards face down in front of your child and have him/her guess the card you point to.
b) The Game of Guessing
What’s In The Box Put one ball out of a possible 5 colors – red, blue, yellow, white and black, into a box, and from the outside without touching the ball, through the use of clairvoyance, have your child guess the color of the ball.
c) Matching Cards Memory Game
All cards are arranged in rows faced down. When it’s your child’s turn, ask him/her to open 2 matching cards. If he/she is successful, he/ she can keep the cards, otherwise the cards are closed again. The player with the most cards wins.
d) Blindfolded Game
When games (a) and (b) are done 100% successfully, try this blindfolded game. Have your child blindfolded and guess what object is being placed in front of him without him touching the object.
Alternatively, have your blindfolded child guess and point to where Japan, Australia, America, Russia, etc are on a map placed in front of him.
e) Catch Mummy Game
When your child can guess what is placed in front, play the game of having him/her try to catch you while blindfolded. After your child is blindfolded, ask your child to catch you as move away from the place you were standing before to a new position.
Extrasensory consists of those psychological abilities beyond regular senses; it relates to faculty of perception other than the normal five senses. It is the perceptible and obvious capability of some people to become conscious of things by means other than the normal senses.
All of us have some intuitive or extrasensory aptitude to some extent. Like other natural abilities, extrasensory abilities can be taught to enhance psychic aptitude. The following steps of exercise can assist to increase your natural extrasensory skills.
Try to be more conscious of your environment. While waking in the morning, you have to lie down with closed eyes for a few minutes and try to perceive as many sounds, smells and textures as possible. Try to carry out this exercise for some weeks; it will greatly boost your insight and help to increase your levels of consciousness and intuition.
As you know, Brain and mind are different.
Brain is composed of sensory organs, sensory nerves, sensory network, sensory neuron cells for processing the received sensation.
Where as the mind is the software for further processing of detection, observation, analysing, feeling, refering, comparing, identifying, stoiring as 5 perceived memories, for futuer use by the individual depending upon the personal skills of using the mind.
So there are “5 sensory memories” to store and retreave for using stored stuff inside human mind.
Visual memory containing all type of light forms, vision form, size, shape volume color, picture, images, distance, 2 d , 3d visions and so many types of visual informations, received and percieved by the brain and nervous system during day to day working of the human behaviour.
similarly rest of the memories are created and used by the human mind, say audio memory, olfactory memory, Gustatory memory and Tectile memory etc.
So the complete processing is done by the brain and mind in the “perfect Synchronized way” to store the “information received from outside and from within” the human body, all with the speed of light.
Process of recognition is done by the Human mind:
So sensation and perception can be same for other individual, but the Recognition and identification can be different for each individual, depending upon mental development, memories, mental skills and abilities, logic, analysis, understanding, storing info as knowledge, considerations, concepts, faith, belief and experience etc. etc. all at personal level.
Now come to H.S.P. phenomena
As we have seen above, that even the normal sensory perception, differs from person to person due to use of brain, nervous system and the specific use of mind, mental level of development and mental capacity, and extra ordinary mental skills and efficiency.
And here we may say, that mind has got personal mental capabilities and skills for detection and use of some extra sensory perception, i.e. pick up and perception by mind without the use of any normal sense organs say…
- Seeing and perceiving without using the normal eyes… closed eyes vision.
- Listening voice, talk, sound, music etc. from remote areas, without using normal ears.
Smelling from remote areas without using nose.
- Remote area Tasting or feeling of food, edible taste etc. without using the normal use of tongue.
- Remote touching, feeling and experiencing or perceiving tactile sensation without using normal skin or tactile sensors.
Though ESP is unbelievable phenomena but it is done by many individuals in this world. Such super human beings are endowed with this extra ordinary mental capabilities and are using it, as paranormal behavior in their life.
This “Paranormal behavior” is studied by the students, in the Universities in different countries, as educational study subject known as “Parapsychology”.
The Parapsychology includes many branches of paranormal behavior patterns found in psychic human being. These ESP behavior patterns are classified as ESP, OBE, HSP, clairvoyance, clairaudience, Astral travelling, Teleportation, psychometry, telekinesis, telepathy, psychic healing etc.
Prof. J.B. Rhine has coined the word “ESP” for this “Extra Sensory Perception” and has developed some methods for testing and measuring these ESP behaviour of human mind.
Now the ESP abilities can be developed and used as human psychic powers. And there are many psychic people have been identified as demonstrators for this ESP and occult powers.
Like the parapsychology, The metaphysics, the Occultism, mesmerism, hypnotism etc. etc. are also considered as paranormal subjects for studies of paranormal and occult behaviour of psychics.
In order to explain these occult and psycicbehavior of the human beings they “( Metaphysist, occultist, mesmerist, hypnotist, spiritualist, Theosophist and Parapsychologist etc.)have classified the human body structure into following finer and subtle bodies.
[a] Physical body [b] Spiritual body [c] Soul
- Physical body [Brain and nervous system for normal sensations]
- Etheric body [Physical Normal, health energy, vitality, pranic healing]
- Astral body [SukshmaSharir] Astral travelling Remote sensing.
- Mental body [Mind and memory, mental skills and abilities, ESP]
- Spiritual body [higher perception, past life, spiritual development etc.
The psychic gurus, teachers have devised several methods for the “Psychic Development” , “Mental development” and “Spiritual development” . And the developed Psychic persons or skilled persons are known as “Mentalist” , “Spiritualist” , “Psychic”, “Yogi”, “Siddha purush”, “Clairvoyant” , “Astral travellers”,
“Hypnotherapist” , “Faith healers” etc.
The ESP and HSP and occult powers are demonstrated by Astral body, Mental body and Spiritual body .
For example OBE, Astral Traveling, Telepathy etc., are done using Astral Consciousness of Astral body.
Etheric healing, Psychic healing and pranic healing is done by “Etheric Body”.
Psychometry, Telepathy is done by etheric body, astral body and mental body.
Shifting of consciousness is the key to use these finer bodies. It requires training, sadhana, practice daily for getting control and hold over these bodies.
And as I have told you earlier, that the human mind is programmable, so these program scripts can be installed in the subconscious mind of the human mind to develop such psychic abilities in them.
I have been a mind programmer since 1970, and have performed many psychic experiments with these subtle bodies of the normal human being willing to experience “ESP & psychic powers” in them. HSP phenomena are now getting more attention in the “human development courses”, specially in school and colleges. Students are getting benefits from such brain training. This is known as Brain – Mind development to explore their maximum potential.
