InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.
Here he reflects on the cultivation of psychic gifts and spiritual attainments. He points to the example of Nikola Tesla who managed to transmute the annoying siddhi of super-hearing into an amazing gift of creative invention. He notes that siddhis do not always work out for the best. And, he uses an example from his own life to suggest that one can enjoy siddhis without expecting or craving them. He also maintains that character development promotes the attainment of siddhis.
