Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Psychic Abilities : Mental: this is when the two people have a conversation. They can express and communicate through words that arent spoken or through visual images. For instance, if the transmitter wants to let the receiver know about the place to meet for dinner, they may visualize the sign of their favorite restaurant.
Development for Beginners: Step 2: Enhance your capacity to maintain the image of a dynamic shape. Continue picturing the same blue triangle as before, but now, try to imagine the blue triangle starting to rotate. Then, increase the speed of the rotation and, if you are able to, change its direction.
Elements of the Psychic World: Also described as an aura, the etheric body is thought to be a second, subtle body which is typically a mirror image of the physical body and which can, under certain circumstances, be projected and travel great distances in a short space of time. It is often said to be the same as the astral body but some traditions believe that the astral plane is one step closer to higher consciousness. In magical traditions the etheric body is said to be composed of fine energy. Recent research not only suggests that the etheric body may exist but that its substance may be electrical energy.
