You're right amixa, it's just that the people who tend to make me think of not going to improve my life to the way I would want to live it tend to be the people who are heavily into the psychic. This probably would apply to a lot of people who might not be into psychic work, but I decided to specifically look at that group of people. They can say that they can't for whatever reason (I tend to hear that beings of higher planes would stop you for some reason, such as angels, but it was never really explained why they thought that way), so that is a pretty good point. I guess to each their own but I refuse to live in a dream, I'd rather turn my dreams into reality instead of just pushing down the feeling that I should be living my dreams, not having my dreams live me.
Also, I agree that psychic abilities should be used in a balance way, not to have it interfere with your life that you are trying to live, rather, help it to achieve your dreams, but I usually don't see this very much for some reason (although there are many exceptions to this). Although, I've seen plenty of people who really don't have psychic abilities (as far as I could see and they admit to not having any abilities in that field) who really succeed in what they want to do in life, so having psychic abilities may help with life, but it isn't absolutely essential to living a purposeful life. I guess it depends on your viewpoint.
