Terry and Linda Jamison are twin sisters who say they are so close they share a soul, and also a unique talent: the ability to predict the future.
But in their new book, Psychic Intelligence: Tune In and Discover the Power of Your Intuition " the sisters, known as the "Psychic Twins," say they're not the only ones who have this ability.
"We all have psychic powers," Linda said today on "Good Morning America." "We call it psychic intelligence. We all have the power to be psychic."
In "Psychic Intelligence," the sisters reveal the methods they use to make their predictions, which have included correctly predicting when Prince William and Kate Middleton would break up, and when the couple would eventually get married.
"Clarivoyance, claircognizance, clairsentience and clairaudience," Terri told "GMA," describing the "Four C's" they say people must focus in on to open their intuitive minds.
"We can all access them," she said. "We teach how to train your psychic side to be open to subtle messages."
In their book, the sisters, who call their special connection 'Twintuition,' also take on skeptics who may question whether their prediction abilities are real.
"We're not here to prove to skeptics," Linda said on "GMA." "We've already proven ourselves."
"We're here as intuitive counselors," she added. "We're here to help people."

You may think that because we are identical twins and share the same DNA we're naturally more telepathic than most. And in fact, we do have twin telepathic experiences on a daily basis. We don't need BlackBerrys or iPhones to communicate with each other; we use "TwinBerry" mental telepathy.
But according to Guy Lyon Playfair, a researcher of the paranormal and author of Twin Telepathy, only about 30 percent of twins have actually experienced a telepathic connection while the vast majority have no particular psychic bond between them. We, however, were born not only with the ability to communicate psychically with each other, but also with abilities that reach beyond our twinship, which enable us to be reliably psychic for anyone at any time.
In West Chester, the small Pennsylvania farming town where we grew up, no one had ever heard of—much less met—a psychic, and so for a long time neither we nor our family and friends thought much about our abilities. Although both our parents were artists—our father, Philip Jamison, is a master watercolorist and national academician, and our mother was also a gifted painter—they were in many ways quite conservative. While they applauded our inherited artistic talents, they tended to either dismiss or discourage our ability to "know" things we had no way of knowing.
The first psychic experience either one of us can recall occurred when we were five and Terry won a prize at her school fair for correctly naming the exact number of jellybeans in a jar. She didn't just guess the closest number—she was exactly right. Later, as teenagers, we started predicting what our friends' careers would be—although we didn't learn until many years after that our predictions had come true. Still, we always had the sense that we would become famous artists and designers, and we didn't spend a lot of time thinking about how or why we seemed to know or predict things other people simply could not foresee.
It wasn't until our mid-teens, when we started to experience a series of baffling and debilitating health issues, that we began our continuing quest for spiritual knowledge. It was that ongoing search that eventually led us to discover the Buddhist philosophy and practice that provided us with spiritual sustenance during those years of physical pain, as it continues to do today.
