The Gift

ESP, the Extraordinary Experiences of Ordinary People

Dr. Sally Rhine Feather and Michael Schmicker

St. Martin's Press




Can some people see the future? Do some dreams contain warnings? Can we observe events unfolding thousands of miles away? Dr. Sally Rhine Feather, a director of one of the world's most respected institutes for paranormal studies, says yes—and she provides dozens of examples of how ESP appears in real life. Referring to decades of research of hard facts and data as proof that ESP is real, Dr. Feather now reveals breakthrough discoveries which include: what circumstances trigger ESP experiences, why some people have more of this gift than others, and whether the fate revealed in a dream or vision can be changed.
Don't miss:

· The dream that prevented a fatal heart attack of a stranger
· Children's visions of dead people bringing messages for the living
· A letter written and mailed that precisely predicted a nephew's injury in war
· The stolen car recovered in Cleveland with the help of a vision
· …and more!


Chapter One

The Falling Chandelier

All good science starts with observation, and humans throughout history have been recording observations about their psychic experiences. My father coined the generic term "extrasensory perception"...
