Interpretations of such psychological experiences vary widely, but common forms include alien visitations and abductions, neardeath experiences (NDEs), out-of-body experiences (OBEs), anomalous healings, past-life experiences, mystical experiences, and psi-related phenomena such as psychokinesis, extrasensory perception (ESP), déjà vu, and precognition.
