Mystic or Psychic?

Mystic or Psychic?
We’re going to tackle a topic that’s been on all your minds this week: What’s the difference between mysticism and psychism? Or to put it another way, are you a mystic, a psychic, neither, or both?

Mysticism. Mysticism is mostly connected with spiritual or religious practices. Ernest Holmes (writer, founder of the Science of Mind religion, and professional mystic) says, “A mystic is one who senses the Divine Presence.” Holmes goes on to hypothesize that inspiration for music, art, philosophy, and even science can come from mystical experiences.

There is a challenge here: It’s difficult for those of us who have never had a mystical experience to understand and appreciate it. Maybe that’s the point: If you try to put the experience into words you lose the mystical experience altogether. It’s like an athlete getting in the zone. She cannot explain it. Or if she does try, she loses it.

Psychism. This is not much easier. But at least psychics can put a little more color around their experiences — they are able to see that which is pictured in another dimension. This picture might be something from past ages or something at the current moment.

Before trashing this entire post as nonsensical, New Thought blather, consider the following as examples of psychic experiences:

Receiving a phone call from someone you were just thinking about.
Having a premonition about a family member’s health.
Feeling that someone is looking at you in a store, and turning around to see them.
