New Thinking Allowed Says Paranormal Experiences Are Normal and Relevant

ALBUQUERQUE, NM / ACCESSWIRE / April 21, 2022 / Recent polling, conducted in October 2021 by Cinch Home Services, a leading home warranty company, indicates that 83% of American adults report having experienced paranormal activity in their homes. The top three forms of paranormal activity were hearing sounds, lights turning on and off, and hearing voices. This finding is consistent with polling going back for decades. Yet, typically, many experiencers are still reluctant to speak openly about their experiences for fear of being ridiculed, called mentally ill, or even accused of demonic possession.

The new accumulated scientific evidence suggests that many such experiences should be taken at face value.

The Pentagon released a statement in June 2021 revealing it has no explanation for 143 "unidentified aerial phenomena." The evidence of the paranormal and life beyond this world has never been stronger. This conclusion is buttressed by a report issued by the American Psychological Association in 2018, stating that "The evidence provides cumulative support for the reality of psi [extrasensory perception and mind-over-matter], which cannot be readily explained away."

Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., host of the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, says, "Large segments of the population, when polled, report personal experiences of a parapsychological nature. Our academic, scientific, and religious institutions have failed to educate the public about 140 years of research into paranormal phenomena."

Mishlove states, "Whenever I, or other parapsychologists, appear in public, people always come up to us and ask if they can tell us about their personal experiences. They almost always preface their remarks by stating, 'I've never told anyone else before about this.'"

The New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube is a continuation of the Thinking Allowed public television series, hosted and co-produced by Mishlove, that aired throughout North America from 1987 through 2002. Since 2015, over 1,600 videos have been uploaded to the YouTube channel. The channel features guests who are leading figures in philosophy, psychology, health, science, and spirituality -- with a healthy emphasis on parapsychology.

Mishlove says, "My hope is to help people realize their paranormal experiences are normal and relevant - thus helping to remove the stigma associated with parapsychology." He believes the recent research is encouraging. "The best antidote to the fear and ignorance concerning paranormal experiences is public education."
