List of Psychic Abilities
& Forms of Prophesy
Compiled for our information and reference my Psychic Junkie complete A to Z list of psychic abilities is an on going project.
A part of our human condition is to both look within in our attempts to know ourselves and to look outwards in order to know our futures. From eons of studying nature and the world around us we have devised rituals and procedures with which to meet the unknown.
Arts of divination or extra sensory perceptions are diverse, numerous, ancient and new.
There’s a multitude of extrasensory talents that can be included in a comprehensive list of psychic abilities. Many good psychics will possess multiple psychic modalities but not by any means all that are included in this list of psychic abilities.
And just to clarify what my list of psychic abilities is and is not. Although I’m a professional psychic this is not a list of MY psychic skills but rather a list of psychic abilities or forms of prophesy I have compiled for our information and reference.
You may have heard about Cheirology or Chiromancy but not realized they are both just different terms for Palmistry or Palm Reading (Cheiro: Greek word for hand and Mancy: meaning divination).
Many psychic abilities have the suffix ‘mancy’. Mancy originates from Old French, Greek and Latin words meaning Divination / Prophesy / Prophet. For instance bibliomancy; means interpreting a passage chosen at random from a book and offering up a prophecy from so doing. Prophesies in this form were predominantly taken from the Bible in earlier times.

List of Psychic Abilities
and Forms of Prophecy
Aeromancy: Interpreting the shapes of clouds. There are signs in the air and sky much closer than the astrological zodiac. Next time you are on a flight get a window seat and look for messages as you fly above and through the clouds.
Afterlife Communication Your loved ones who have crossed over can show you signs everyday that they are around you. All you have to do is look for them. And if you talk to your loved ones in the afterlife they will hear you. By talking to them you are telling them that you do indeed believe they are around you and this helps them to connect with you and give you signs that they are around you so much more.
Alectryomancy: A form of divination using the sounds of bird calls or the pecking of seeds in relation to touching or manipulating letters of the alphabet.
Aleuromancy: Answers and messages baked in a dough then chosen at random with a question in mind. Fortune Cookies. Can also be the interpretation of shapes in flour spread or dropped on a tray or on the bakers floor. Another form similar to tea cup reading was from ‘reading’ the signs left in the mixing bowl. (Aleuron meaning Flour + Mancy meaning divination)
Alomancy: Casting salt into the air and read the patterns as it falls to the floor. Can also be salt cast into a fire.
Alpha Mind StateThe full list of psychic abilities emanate from this realm. Try my step-by-step script for accessing your psychic alpha state of mind.
Alphitomancy: A specially prepared loaf of Barley bread was given to a person suspected of a crime. The innocent would digest it easily the guilty would have indigestion.
Animals: We can often see a pet cat or dog staring at something invisible. Your animal companion perceives the presence of spirit energies. Many psychics will use the psychic ability of animals to communicate on animal welfare. Pet Psychic Readings
Anomalous Cognition: Term used by parapsychologists to reference awareness of information without having to specify or theorize a particular means by which that information was transferred.
Apantomancy: Taking meaning from chance encounters with animals. Saying you will be lucky when a black cat crosses your path. Aztec mystics took the flight of an eagle carrying a snake to be a good omen and Mexico City was born.
Apparition: A ghostly appearance.
Apports: completely solid objects can materialize out of thin air through a physical medium. Often ghosts will make coins, flowers, keys or stones appear. (Thank You Autumn)
Arithmancy or Arithmomancy are early forms of Numerology where predictions are made through numbers and the number value of letters. Arithmancy has found renewed popularity with its inclusion in the Harry Potter stories.
Astraglomancy or Astragyromancy: (Similar to Cleromancy) Making of decisions based on the throwing of dice. Have you read the book The Dice Man?
Astrology: Using the positions of the planets in the signs of the zodiac at your time of birth to prophesize future events and character traits. An astrologer must have your exact date of birth to be accurate, see Horoscope Junkie.
Augury: Ancient Roman prophecy from watching the movement of birds and other animals during thunder and lightning.
Aura Reading: This is the ability for a psychic to see in and around a subjects Aura. We all have an electromagnetic energy field around us. Some see this energy field as colors some psychics will feel the energy.
Austromancy: Deriving meaning from watching the winds especially during thunder and lightning.. “The winds of change”.
Automatic Writing is sometimes done in a trance or psychic state but sometimes with the writer’s awareness but the message is not from the writer’s mind. (Thanks for adding this Brandi - ZZ)
