The present study aimed to construct a Psychic Energy Scale by computing Exploratory Factor Analysis to validate the Psychic Energy Scale, before administering the EFA, the data was analysed for its sampling adequacy. The factor analysis was employed separately on each sub scale. Initially, seven items measure was administered to 120 Indian artistic gymnasts from different Gymnastics Centre of Allahabad, Hyderabad and Delhi. Exploratory factor analysis supported a 2-factor model that explained 57.98% of the variance. In the next stage five items measure was administered to 65 Indian Gymnasts from Bhoir’s Gymkhana, Dombivali, Mumbai, the result supported by EFA as one factor model including four statements that explained 47.39% of variance.
