Romani mythology is the myth, folklore, religion, traditions, and legends of the Romani people. (The Romani are sometimes referred to as Gypsies, though many consider this a slur) The Romani are a nomadic culture which is thought to have originated in India during the Middle Ages. They migrated widely, particularly to Europe. Some legends (particularly from non-Romani peoples) say that certain Romani have passive psychic powers such as empathy, precognition, retrocognition, or psychometry. Other legends include the ability to levitate, travel through astral projection by way of meditation, invoke curses or blessings, conjure or channel spirits, and skill with illusion-casting.
