It may not be every Western student's dream to lead their own psychic network. Let's face it – not everyone's a Jo Jo.

However, tapping into your psychic ability could play a key role in surviving your post-secondary life. Premonitions about an upcoming exam, gut feelings about the guy or girl who just gave you their number at the bar – these instincts could help you avoid major bumps along the road.

The Gazette asked its spiritual leader Robert Masschelein, otherwise known as "Psychic Bob," to provide some perspective on how one can harness their own personal psychic abilities.

"I believe we are all born with a sixth sense," he said. "We all have an inner-gut feeling about people and things."

Psychic Bob said meditation is the key to developing psychic impressions. "You have to calm down the conscious mind. It's always chattering and busy. When you are in deep meditation, you are tapping into the astral and mental dimensions of the universe. You can see, hear and sense things beyond the realm of your normal senses," he said.

"Meditation lifts you from the negative physical and material world into the higher dimensions – the spiritual and creative parts of the universe, where healing, informative and creative energies flow through you," he added.

Psychic Bob said meditation, even if it is not taken to the point of developing psychic abilities, can create harmony, peace and health in an individual.

"Some people are naturally gifted," he said. "[My psychic abilities] are learned and developed."

Follow Psychic Bob's advice: look into the art of meditation. The gifts of extra-sensory perception could be yours to discover.
