A question for those who meditate and/or follow Buddhist precepts…?

Do you agree that many times upon awakening the spirit of the human such abilities as ‘psychic’ or ‘clairvoyant’ traits become apparent?
“According to many Taoist- and Buddhist-related practices, abilities such as clairvoyance and many other ‘supernormal’ abilities are by-products of spiritual awakening and the realisation of divine consciousness. Integral to spiritual and mind expansion is breathwork and meditation. By expanding lung capacity and learning to use the lungs as a ‘bellows’ to direct qi (Chinese: æ°£ qì, meaning “air”) around the body and open the subtle energy channels we also naturally expand the mind and refine consciousness. This is how these seemingly miraculous powers develop, though they are not truly miraculous. They are considered to be latent abilities that everyone possesses but need ‘waking up.'”–wikipedia
I believe this to be ture…what do you think?


  1. Certain meditations can lead to opening of various spiritual concepts that can blossom in the mind, universal love and understanding being one. This feeling of oneness with other can be mistaken for psychic powers but it is merely living in haramony and sync with your fellows.
    Qi, although translating as breath is a mysterious subject that sometimes means blood, nutrition in the blood, super-miracle magic power or simply strength. Without a definite definition of qi it will always be a mysterious medium that overlaps several scientific areas and a couple of mystic ones.
    If in the future I do develop ‘abilities’ I shall let you know, after I win the lottery and save mankind.

  2. Some non-Taoists and non-Buddhists also possess the clairvoyance and many other ‘supernormal’ abilities. The Russians has studied them during the cold war. During the 80s and early 90s when qigong was popular, few Chinese people possessed these abilities.
    As the person does well in the non-secular practice, either in the Eastern or Western belief, raising his moral level high, gaining partial enlightenment, his abilities may be opened.
    Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School was found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. There are about 100 million followers, and most of them are in China. It’s practiced in 80 countries worldwide. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
    Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China.
    Can you kindly sign a petition to stop persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China ahead of the Beijing Olympics, please ?

  3. That’s correct. You don’t even need to look at supernatural or clairvoyant abilities to understand this effect of cultivation.
    Just look at people that cultivate and become more and more wise and aware. Their critical thinking and logic becomes greater and greater. This is just the beginning of it all. The mind becomes more and more capable. As for those who do nothing but delude themselves into limitations of materials in which all they can understand, see, and believe is the material forms and shapes around them, notice how they are less intelligent and more ignorant.
    So for a cultivator, by the default of Buddhist fundamentals and principles, one becomes less and less limited in their perceptions. The end-result of enlightenment is when there are no attachments to forms, shapes, senses, meaning: there are no boundaries to one’s perception. It’s limitless and unhindered or obstructed. The mind is open to limitless expanses and thusly, can see the greater picture and understand things on a greater level.
    As a result, one that becomes more and more “open-minded”, they see and understand things more deeply. As they progress, their intuition, logic, perception, awareness, grow to such heights together in which they become clairvoyant, psychic, etc. Why do people that meditate consistently always embark upon visions. Meditation opens up your mind. That’s why you might see outside of your room, actual places, people, etc. People don’t believe this unless they’ve actually been a part of intimate practice groups where people discuss their experiences. So even if I told you even I have seen visions, you wouldn’t believe my convictions. So to believe, go do it yourself.
    To better understand how we become more psychic or attain spiritual abilities, look at this life as a dream. This life is actually a dream. That’s why enlightenment means to awaken. In your actual sleep-dreams, have you ever had a lucid dream in which you realized it was a dream and suddenly had the abilities to do ANYTHING in which there was practically no limitations or boundaries? That’s what this life is like. The more you cultivate, the more awakened you become and that “lucid” state becomes more and more apparent. When you fully enlighten, you are fully awake and realize completely how this life was just a dream and manifestation of illusory thoughts. As a result, you see it as a whole and can manifest your own destiny. You control your destiny just as you would in a lucid sleep-dream.
