The first category of people who are more prone to acquiring a spiritual infection are psychic sensitives. Psychic sensitives are people who produce excess psychic energy. They are able to produce this excess psychic energy because, for some reason, they possess a wider personal connection to the spiritual world. This phenomenon is explained more thoroughly in chapter 9 under the heading “spirit portals”. Most of these people have no idea that they are, indeed, psychic. This facility may be congenital (from birth) since exaggerated psychic faculties seem to run in families. The greater the excess, the brighter they shine within their spiritual environment, and the more negative energies will be attracted to them. In general, they are safe from attack unless they have seriously damaged protective auras (see chapter 9), however, as a group, they are still more susceptible to spiritual infections.
Psychic sensitivity seems to run along a wide gradient, and the more psychic a person is, the more susceptible he or she is to obsessing spirits if the external boundary of their spirit is not kept reasonably intact. Most people believe that being a psychic is a rare “gift”. It’s NOT rare. Millions of people all around the world are strongly psychic and don’t know it. Nor is it necessarily a gift. Properly handled, strong psychic abilities can be channeled into a very useful trait that can be used to help other people. Unfortunately, being an unwitting psychic can also lead to tremendous mental anguish and even mental illness as a result of unwanted spiritual interference.
