How Does One Control Their Psychic Abilities? Erin or Anyone?
When I read people's posts when discussing psychic abilities and how they talk about it as a gift or as something to strive for and behold, I get tense and a bit angry.
You are probably wondering how anyone could get tense or angry, but here's why I do. Ever since I was 4 years old and it may be earlier than that, but that's the youngest age I can remember my first psychic ability...I saw a huge male being, with flowing perfectly white hair on his head and his mustache and beard were long and the same color...he appeared out from a clear blue sky on a summer day, when I was laying on my back and getting caught up in the wind blowing a very tall pine tree across the street.
Eventually, my parents who were ultra fundamental Pentecostal Christians, decided I was demon possessed. A few times, they drug me into a pastor's office to "have Satan casted out of me". Then, as I got older, I would know when the phone was going to ring and who it was....or look at someone and feel them and whatnot....and seeing the spirit world didn't stop either.
I tried so hard to stop myself, I really did. I didn't want to have this horrible life of being ridiculed as being demonic and being taken to pastors to go through those scary moments of being screamed at, manhandled or feel the spit from his mouth hit my face...I was so terrified, as I was only a young girl and so dang confused as to "what was wrong with me"....so, I stopped talking about what was going on and pretended that these events were no longer happening. Then, I started having mental issues because I thought I was going nuts. Eventually, my parents started taking me to a head shrink. I hated everything about me, then.
Today, I have a love for who I am and what I am made out of for the most part...still working on that area. However, I still carry around this resentment for having psychic abilities and when I hear someone say they wish they could have such a blessed gift, I respond..."Okay, take mine, I don't want it anymore. It's a friggin curse to me." I know this may sound bitter or ungrateful and I know deep down in my heart, that I don't really feel that way. I just get entirely worn out and at times, depressed cause so much input is coming in that I don't know what to do with it or how to control it.
I would just love to know what it feels like to go out into public and just have a purely normal human experience of just hanging out and minding my own business. I have become so anti-social, that I rarely go out anymore. I hate it when I am in a store and there is too many people around me....especially if I am already tired or hungry, the collective thoughts and energies of everyone just flood into my head and I feel like running out, just to get myself quiet again.
There are a few times, that I have actually felt a panic/anxiety attack and left my poor hubby to finish the shopping. And boy, when I finally get to get outside and take that first breath of open space air, I feel very much how a wild animal must feel, when it's set free to roam it's natural habitat after being caged up. I end up feeling bad for my hubby, because even though I know he accepts this part of me and tries to make me feel free to escape, I also feel him not understand it and sorta feels cheated in getting a wife that can't relax and just have fun with him...poor guy, I love him so much!
And, forbid the moment someone just has to come up to me and share their problems to get comfort or whatever, cause I can get these snap shot photo images of the issues and know what this person should or should not do and the outcome of each way...and many of times, I get attitude issues back from them if my answers are not what they want to hear....because, a lot of times the snap shot images tell me they are dealing with a whole different issue and that they are not being honest with themselves.
When that happens, it feels like all hell breaks out on me...when they say something like, "Yeah, that is happening too...but that's not my REAL issue." Then, it will dawn on them that I brought up an issue that I had no human way of knowing and then they either wig out or get angry at me over it. I just wanna pull my hair out at these moments and yell out, "Hey, I didn't create your reality, you did. I only see it and sharing it with you is all. So, if ya wanna piss on someone over it, piss on yourself!" I know, not very loving thoughts, but sheez.
I hate it when this happens and I feel like blurting out, "If you don't like hearing the truth, then don't bother coming to me, I don't need this crap!' But, I don't...I go into compassion mode as much as I can, because I know that I don't always respond to truth in a healthy manner, so how can I expect them to. I end up being as loving as possible and say something like, "I'm sorry if this made you upset, I am just trying to help." Then, I change the subject to something completely different. But, I hate it when I say I am sorry, because sorry means that I did something wrong.
I am sorry for this being so long and I appreciate any of you that has stayed with me so far. It's just been what feels like forever that I have held this resentment inside and I want to get it out. Trust me, I am not like a spoiled and ungrateful bratty kid that doesn't appreciate the wonderful toys in her room. I am just feeling like a kid that is overwhelmed by all the toys that are piled in a heap and has a problem knowing what to organize them so it doesn't feel like a mess.
I am going to be 45 years old in June...that's almost half my life, if I do live to be 100 years old. I have spent this first half being resentful of my abilities and feeling worn out...and I really don't want to wish away my abilities if that can happen, as I am scared of that happening too if I give in to resenting it too much...I just want to live out the last half of my life appreciating my abilities and knowing how to use it and control it to get breaks when I am out in public...because I don't really like running or hiding away, it's not me really.
Does anyone out there understand and relate to what I am feeling? Has anyone ever gone through resenting their "gift" and come out learning how to not allow it to overwhelm yourself and actually enjoy and fully appreciate it? It's like I said, most of the time I love me and what I am, but it's only when going through psychic events, that I start feeling like a friggin freakazoid and I know I need to work on this...just don't know how.
Okay, y'all are released to return to whatever it was you were doing before I started my whining and complaining. Deep down inside I am not like this, this is not the real me most of the time....it just creeps up on me ever so often. I want to be TOTALLY free from the present bouts of resentment to live out the rest of my life daily, peacefully enjoying my gift. I have been telling myself for tons of years, it's only a phase things will get better. :)
Again, thanks so much for taking the time to read this long post and responding to it, if you so choose.
First off I'm not exactly developed or working on my abilities heavily so my advice is sort of just from where I'm at now. I'm 25 & ;) well I didn't even become aware of my abilities until a few years ago in a real way.
I can identify though a bit... My mother, sister, & grandmother have abilities I believe. All 3 of them have lived their entire lives terrified, angry, & resentful of their abilities I believe since none of them really wanted to talk about it at all & when they did.. it became a very negatively charged conversation pretty quickly. Enter me. I'm the youngest in the family & I thought "oh they all have abilities & that's nice..but I don't think I do..." from when I was a wee kid. I was always very open to the phenomena & read many books on it due to my curiosity.
I will say like you my family's negative bias against paranormal phenomena made it quite difficult for me when I realized I also was experiencing things a few years ago that made it difficult to deny. My sister was the toughest as she also highly resents her abilities & my bringing up ANYTHING was like a big fight with her though I so badly wanted to share it with her. I definitely think you could get some help healing that horrible experience you went through with your parents & the pastors it would help clear up that part of your feelings with your abilities. For my sister she had a particularly bad experience with an entity that soured her for good (she only told me a year ago finally) & well, she sort of let it colour her perspective.
One of your paragraphs jumped out at me since it sounds a lot like what some have called 'unskilled empathy.' It's an ability to sort of merge or pick up on other people's feelings, physical sensations, a sense of who they are, there is even molecular empathy according to the book I've read on it. It is by a woman named Rose Rosetree whose book has helped me quite a bit with this particular ability. It is different from being clairvoyant or clairsentient I believe? though I'm sure there are others who are way more familiar with these abilities than I am. It sounds like you have more than empathy too but I don't know if I can help you out there ;) as I'm totally unfamiliar with this stuff.
I am in the process of regaining my own power over my empathy. For many years I didn't even realize I'd pick up people's emotions like a sponge. I would hang around someone who was peaceful & it was bliss...then all of a sudden I'd be around an angry person (this is hardest for me..especially in this stressful time) & I'd be upset too. It was like I couldn't control it. I dealt pretty well & tried just some meditations whatnot..but to make a long story short I was upset too because I hated not being able to control it or turn it off when I wanted some peace or just to go grocery shopping in peace without picking some person's intense emotions.
I am slowly right now in the process of regaining my own power back & I believe it is our right to since it makes no sense to be a slave to something like this. I think there are more books out there on various abilities & sometimes there are teachers you can work with? though I'm not sure of which ones but I am sure setting some kind of intention with your guides/universe to empower yourself & have the insight to use your abilities better & have a more peaceful life would be a good intention. I've found asking for the help generally tends to send it right to me.
I identify with your post because I'm sort of half annoyed with my empathy & half aware that I have it for a reason though I don't know my reasons quite yet. ;) I believe though there will come a time it'll make sense for me & I'll be grateful for it much like I'm grateful for other talents I have.
I hope this helps!
You're a lightworker who chose to incarnate to help our planet and the people on it remember where they came from, to grow, learn, help others, and live compassionately.
You chose parents who were very fear based to test yourself. you have given in to the fear. This is why you panic.
You are Clark Kent with amnesia. give up your psychic abilities if you want. But they are part of you. Even with amnesia, Clark Kent still has superstrength. Try to suppress it, avoid it, ignore it, pretend it's not there, and you will just be railing against your true nature.
Let go of your past. Let go of the fear. Remember why you're here. Then you will be truly free.
You hit the nail on the head, when you said that you don't see the reason for having your gift....that is EXACTLY what goes through my head at times. I will share just one event that stands out to this day, that made me question what the reason was.
I was in my local grocery store...a well dressed and groomed male passed by me....and instantly I felt like my body was being slammed down on the floor and I couldn't breathe. All of a sudden mental snap shot images of him wearing scrappy jeans and a grey/blue tshirt and barefooted...his hair was a mess and he was angry. Next, snapshot was him with his hands around a woman's throat who looked absolutely in terror. Next snapshot was him holding her by the hair and the expressions of pain and terror was in her face.
Meanwhile, I knew in the deepest part of me that that self confident and mastered manner of being polite when he smiled at me...all that business and professional attire...only hid that individual's absolute hate, anger, uncontrollable temper and the rage he had against his wife....and the reason why I believe it was his wife, was because the wedding band he was wearing matched the one I saw on her finger.
Okay, so what now? Great, I tell myself....here I go again getting all this information and what do I do with it? What is the reason I get these if there isn't a dang thing I can do about it or with it or whatever? I feel that resentment at those times for sure, because in my reality that I selfishly want it seems, it would be better to not have those images at all and I see no good in having them. Like, what was I supposed to do in that situation, call the dude on his abuse issues....call the police and tell them hey officer based upon my psychic "gift" this man abused his wife? YEAH SURE!
I am so sure at that point that if I had confronted the dude, he would turn around and stalk me or whatever. If I call the police, then I could very well trust that I would be taking a trip in a nice patty wagon off to a rubber room somewhere...so, I do what I usually do....keep it to myself and just walk away feeling angry...when I was just wanting to be at the grocery store picking my gorgeous fruit and vegetables with peace, just like Martha Stewart...just joking on the Martha Stewart part. :p
I just am so glad that those type of psychic experiences happen so rare, I couldn't take it if they were an every day occasion and I would consider shock therapy at that point. I do think you are right about getting healing from my parents and the pastors. Well, if we both stick it out here long enough, perhaps others will be able to watch us both help the other get through this and feel the love for our gifts, eh?
You take care and thank you for your input...I haven't had anyone that has these gifts to talk to in four years or so....and I have been living in my bubble, afraid to come out...but, time is now to heal and grow, huh? I am grateful to no end for this place...been needing people with the same desire to personally develop and grow as I do...just wish I was PERFECTER so I could be of better help.
With much love and gratitude,
I just sent that reply to the other person and then I saw yours.
I will look up the term lightworker, just so I know what you mean by that.
Based upon your idea that I chose my parents to test myself, is this why I kept choosing partners and friends that were fear based like my parents? So, what's the point in me needing to test myself? What do I profit out of doing something so stupid as that? It just sounds like an absolutely lunatic and useless thing to do to myself.
Clark Kent, eh? Funny you should use him to describe me...the Superman comic books were my first love to read and I remember as a little tiny girl, running around the back yard with my blanky wrapped around me and pretended I was Superman. Not a girly thing to play, but I didn't care.
But, to this day, Superman is still my very respected hero!
Yeah...I have the forgiving aspect down towards my parents and I have actually allowed myself to thank them for what experiences I went through, cause who knows how those experiences will benefit me later on...but, I know from being on this site and finally getting this stuff out of my system, that I allow fear to run my life too much at times..and I don't want to anymore.
Thank you again,
I don't have phsychic habilities. Why am in this thread then?...
Because I think I have a lot of things in common with people that have them because of how they describe themselves and because I have people in my family with some. So I think it could happen to me in the future.
But I'm 29 and as far as I know I don't have anything out of ordinary. Well, I play music intuitively... without no preparations and even musicians think that's strange... (I don't even know how I do it myself...) but I guess that's no phsychic thing at all...
But maybe one day I will have some experience, everything is possible.
mmm... I read somewhere (maybe in this web) that if you have some special gift... you're not at peace until you return this gift back. Like if someone do a great present to you, you may feel you have to buy something in return.
If nature of genes, of God or so... gives you a gift... the better thing would be to use it to help people.
I don't know. I write music since I was a child... and I'm often told that the hability to write music has done me more hurt than good. But I can't escape from it. I can try, but I won't. I know the only way is give it back, but I don't know how to do it...
Don't take my opinion too seriously because it's a different subject, but maybe it would help.
It's so fascinating that people who have them usually hate them, and people that don't have them, want them.
Like curly or straight hair. ;)
It's probably more accurate to say that often people who have them are afraid of them, and people who don't have them aren't aware that they really do. ;)
I can relate to what you're saying in many ways. I too had abilities when I was younger that made no sense and got me into trouble with family and teachers at school. I knew things that I wasn't meant to know but didn't know how I knew them and words would come out of my mouth without me having even thought them. It felt more like a curse than a gift and I wanted more than anything to just be normal.
When I was 18, I was working in the city and flatting with friends. I heard on the radio that the police had found a body on the local golf course. Then they said it was the body of my best friend Wendy. We had been best friends for 10 years. She had been anorexic at 15 but recovered. I was devastated, my boss called a taxi and sent me home. I went back to the flat but we didn't have phone so I couldn't call anyone. When my friends came home from work, I told them. They had been listening to the radio and hadn't heard anything. One of my flatmates used a neighbours phone and rung Wendy's house and spoke to her. She was fine and my flatmate didn't tell her what I'd said. They thought I was playing a sick joke on them and isolated/ridiculed me. I felt sick to the stomach and thought I was losing my mind.
Exactly a week later I heard the announcement again on the radio at work. I ignored it. This time when I got home from work, my friends were all crying. They'd heard it this time and checked with Wendy's parents. She had commited suicide. My world spun off its axis.
I ended up sick and disorientated and moved back home. My flatmates were scared of me and no-one spoke of it again. For a long time I felt guilty and scared of myself. I never told my family.
I married a friend of my brother-in-laws a couple of years later, who was a Christian. He seemed to have rules to live by and it felt safe. I had kids and 'it' seemed to go away for awhile. Then, in my mid to late twenties it opened up again. My husband told the minister at the church and they prayed over me and did the banishing the demons thing. It made no difference. I started seeing dead people in the church. I knew it wasn't evil. The people I was seeing just wanted to help their loved ones left behind and pass on messages of encouragement.
My husband became scared of me and disconnected. We divorced in my early 30's. I started exploring and reading about spiritual stuff. Just before we separated I'd be driving home from work at night and my car would fill with the most beautiful loving light. I'd sit it the car in the garage not wanting to leave it. I began meditating and seeing guides but there were heaps of different ones, never the same.
A couple of years later a friends mother gave me a book called 'The Eagle and the Rose' by Rosemary Altea.
She said I was like Rosemary. I believe you are too.
I remember asking for a guide like her guide 'Grey Eagle'. Not long after I'd asked, I was reading a book on the bed and felt a man rub his face against my cheek. I looked around and saw a beautiful face smiling at me. It was 'White Eagle.' A week later I was walking around a mystic fair and an artist stepped up and asked if she could draw a portrait of the Native American Indian walking beside me. Having her see and draw him reassured me that I wasn't insane. He's stayed with me ever since and acts as a gatekeeper.
It's not an easy road working with spirit but the rewards will take you beyond anything you will ever experience in the physical.
You are not alone. My heart is with you.
i'm supposed to be getting ready to go to tafe, but this is an interesting thread, so heres my 2 cents worth
RedneckGyrl have you tried sheilding yourself, go to Psipog article on shielding, they have articles on telepathy and how to sheild yourself from picking up random thoughts of others.
In the past on some occassion i would sit on a crowed train and i would be flooded with thoughts about all sorts of things, i thought they were my own and that i was going crazy. But thinking back i think i was just developing telepathy, i'm not sure. After that i sheilded myself and it stoped.
Try it, i think it should help. anyhow i'm gona be late if i keep typing so see ya.:)
I don't know exactly were to start:-D. Recently I have been attracted to learning about the spiritual dimension of human beings. I always knew it exists but never had the opportunity to explore spirituality. Being born in a staunch christian home, we were conditioned to think about religion and spirituality in a restricted and limited way.
My life changing spiritual experience, began about 10 months ago, when i was on holiday in Romania. Visiting my girl friend, i expected to have an exciting and fun fuelled experience, well did in other ways. To cut a long story short, my girl friends mothers friend was some type of prophetess.She took us to the mountains and performed some sort of deliverance for me. I was so scared at this time seeing and feeling sensations which i never thought possible. Because of my ignorance i accepted everything that was said about me as true. I was proclaimed to be some sort of evil person that walk this face of the earth.Thus, to my benefit i was miraculously set free by this prophetess. To be honest i did feel free, i fasted and prayed for over a month while i was there. Was told to quit my job and deliver other evil people
The reality of everything hit me when i came back home to South Africa. With no job anymore didn't no what to do with my free self. After going on the internet and reading extensively on the human mind, esp, spirituality. I realised that i actually had been cleared of all my negative beliefs and structures. Which was excellent, so i stopped being angry and fustrated over what had happened:-D.
When i look back at my life, i agree that i was carrying lots of negative vibes. Even before my trip to Romania i had strange sensations when i was around various people. I felt supressed or something like that. I know realise that i actually feel and sense what other people think and feel.However, i dont exactly know their actual thoughts or feelings but i pick up on their vibration. its cools but very strange and stressful. i now understand that i have some extra or supernatural ability.But i dont know how to use it or what to with it.
Im addicted to brainwave entrainment and moving to alpha levels and all that jazz. So i feel clear most of the time.I dont understand how this works though.
I also need advise on how to tap into this ability to benefit me.Sometimes i take so much of others negative vibes i dont know how to get rid of it quickly. Not anyone will understand what im going through and seeking advise from those who have no idea is dangerous.
I really understand what you going through. Its comforting to find out that there are others out there that feel the same way that i do. It is really difficult to function in this world with these gifting.
I pray that we can use our gifts to help others and make this world a better place when we learn how to use it effectively.
Your not evil and you don't have demons inside you. You have a precious gift from God. You were sent to help others. I feel frustrated sometimes too because I get confusing messages. I work as a cashier and I see lots of people in my job and I smile at them and I love most of my customers. Once in awhile I get a customer who's angry and I try to make them happy by smiling at them and say "Have a nice day." Kill them with kindness. I got the same pictures of that man choking his wife, but I didn't know where he was. I truly believe in Karma. Sometimes all you can do is just pray for those people and surround them with white light. It's between those people and God. Spirits will help us. Surround yourself with a rainbow of colors twice or three times a day. Also ask all your angels to back you up. I listen to positive music like John Denver or "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly. It lifts me up. Helping others will help yourself. Thank your angels, spirit guides, and people on the Other Side and animals at the end of day.
It seems that I am the youngest one to post under the psychic topic. I am only 19, and I discovered my first "gift" when I was five.
I had looked through my eyes of when I became taller, and I had been walking around my grandparents house, at the time I saw this, I had went into a dream like state, which is the only time these "visions" seem to occur.
Later on, when I got older, I had done the exact event that I dreamed about, wearing the exact clothes, and every detail that was in that dream had been the same as what I had done. I didn't remember the dream until after the event, probably because I was five when I had the dream.
I too can read peoples emotions, but I can control it more then what most of you describe. But it can be confusing when you are feeling two emotions at once, one of your own, and another from someone else. I don't have telepathic abilities, but several members of my family have telepathic abilities, but not to the extent that many of you describe.
I also have another ability which I have yet to find another person who shares the same ability. I am able to control peoples dreams. It was odd the first time it happened. I would have mistaked it for a dream, if my friend had not come up to me and descibed the same dream that I had.
The dream invovled the two of us in a pure white room, just talking, nothing really special.
Unfortuneately, no one else in my family have precognition abilities, but we all share one ability. We all can feel the pain of others, as in physical pain.
It was funny when my cousin was pregnant, all the girls felt those pains that are associated with pregnancy, I was lucky enough to not have them, but then again I am also a guy.
When I deal with peoples pain, I usually steal it from them, and put it onto myself, as I really don't feel physical pain of my own. I too find it ironic that most of us who have "gifts" don't want them, and those who don't have them, want them.
I wonder what it would be like to live a normal life, but if I did that, I would not be able to solve peoples problems like I do now. For with my gifts, I can tell if something is bothering them, even if they aren't close to me physically. I have found a good use for that ability, but I have no clue how to control my precognitive ability, if anyone has an idea, it would be much appreciated.
Oh, and if you were interested in learning how to communicate mentally with a person, I can tell you how, as my mom told me, but I do not share that ability.
You must first clear your mind of everything, and then repeatedly say the name of the person you are trying to talk to. Once they respond, and it will be obvious, you will have established a link, and can now proceed with a full conversation.
Have fun with that.
And for those of you who are curious, I am currently enrolled in college, but as I do not want any stalkers, I will not list the name of the college, but if someone wants to talk to me, look me up on myspace, username TCrum. The profile is set to provite, but once you add me, you can see it. If you try to add me, make sure you send a comment about the whole psychic thing being the reason, and I will add you. I do not mention the whole psychic thing on my page because I keep it a very close secret, very few people know.
The grass is always greener on the other side!
I am one of those people that would say " you are lucky to have this gift".
I am currently trying to tune into the spiritual side of reality, and believe me, it is quite frustrating! I literally just spent the last two hours meditating(or trying to) hoping to contact my Higher Self. It is quite disappointing when you fail.
However, my advice to those who have had the spiritual BLESSING(not curse) and to those who have had non spiritual BLESSING(not curse), I would say balance is the key.
I don't know if everthing is a "gift" some can be both a gift and a curse, so be careful what you wish for. Not to mention some can be very difficult to control. Including the precognitive abilities.
I really don't see anything useful when I have my so called "visions", they are of unimportant things, or to short to actually make sense of what is going on.
Im merely 13 and i know exactly what you are going through. I have many abilitys as well, but its so much harder for me because they do so much to me and im at such a young age. I am also doing my best to learn to control them, because i just cannot take what they do to me anymore. They are getting worse and worse and it is hurting me emotionally and physically. They have made me depressed and at random times my mood changes from that, i see things happen, know when they'll happen, see things that have happened, and many other different abilitys. On more then occasion i have premonitions and they are getting worse and worse, pain, random uncontrolable emotions and more. I too do not see these as a gift but i hope to be able to say one day soon that i do.
Some basic pointers that are usually given are to shielding and chakra exercises in order to control how much "input" you are willing to receive.
However, these things don't work the same for different people. I, for one, am finding the chakra visualizations to be somewhat hard to do. There's always something nagging me that I'm trying to do something in a very complicated way that naturally is a lot simpler.
So, if it works for you, great, if it doesn't, go with your intuition to achieve the same.
I'd like to get back to something you said in your original post, though. You say that you resent your abilities but that you know this is not how you really truly feel about them deep inside.
I'd say that is a good thing. I think much of this resentment comes from your environment, your parents, and from the negative experiences you had. I believe if you could control your gift a little more, you would feel a lot better having it.
You say that you are annoyed by people telling you their problems, then refusing to see the truth and becoming angry. But think about it. They come to you expecting little more than a bit of comfort and understanding, and certainly in most cases not anything precognitive or clairvoyant. The solution to this lies in accepting yourself, and not hiding this part of yourself.
Tell them freely: look, before you tell me your problems, you should know that I have a certain ability that lets me pick up a lot about you, and what I find there may be something you don't want to hear, even if it's the truth and lies at the heart of the matter. If you still want to hear it, I will tell you, just don't go blame me for what I'm going to tell you. As far as I know what I receive from you will be accurate even though you may right now not want or be able to see it that way.
To keep that superman analogy: you're like a young clark kent who accidentally breaks things and throws things around he just wanted to lift, because he can't control his superstrength yet. Do you remember the time in his youth when his heat vision manifests at puberty, and he can't control it at first? This is probably how you have felt all these years. But you are not a helpless victim. You can learn, and you can control.
Be honest. Have a "coming out", and learn to be at peace with how and who you are. You can practice control. You can choose, it's just a matter of finding the tools and ways that work for you. Let those who cannot deal with who you are disconnect. They are simply not ready to deal with the world beyond the physical, and that, also, is okay. But I think you will find that after some initial phase of seeing you in a weird way they will come to accept it as part of your life. Some will see it as a personal quirk but love you nonetheless, others will come to respect and envy you. Let it happen. Be yourself.
Really, the most important part is accepting yourself, including these abilities, as good. You are wonderful the way you are.
Love and Forgiveness. Forgiveness for others. forgiveness for yourself. When you master that, you will find the "control" of your abilities just comes all on it's own. ;)
My mum recently told me when I was about 2 or 3 I wanted to go downstairs at night for an odd reason.. So my mum came dwn with me.

I am also only thirteen, I have known that I was different from pretty much day one. when I was three I started being able to see the future through my dreams, when somebody got hurt I could feel their pain, sometimes even take it away. I agree with Jesse in saying that being younger makes it harder, especially when you don't know anyone with the same "gift". Most of the time I don't see it as a gift. Most people that I've talked to say tings like "If I could see the future it would be so cool." I agree, I is cool, but only sometimes. If someone really angry is standing beside me I don't want to know about why or what their goin to do about it. I don't want that emotion, that's not even mine, racing through me. I don't want to see how somebody is going to die. When someone gets hurt in gym class I don't want to feel my own bones snap, or the headaches in the grocery store. The worst is hospitals, homeless shelters, and vets offices. When I went to get my swine flu shot I got it about a thousand times before it was even my turn. But as much as I want to feel sad and alone and pity myself I know that it isn't the right thing to do. I believe that we were given these gifts for a reason, and that we should use them for good. I you need good advise from someone who knows a lot on this topic for free go to Global Psychics, Real Psychics, Real Answers / GlobalPsychics.com and look on the left hand side. You can pick a catagorey to read about and send them questions, which they will answer for free and maybe even post on their site. It helped me get the support that I needed and the answers that were esential to me staying sane. I'd recomend you'd try it if you are confused and having difficulties with your gift.
I can identify with this original posting as my family is very conservative and not too accepting of my abilities. It has taken them years to accept them and sometimes now they don't completely. I think its important to accept yourself and appreciate your own gifts sometimes.. I think there is something in the Bible about young men and women being given visions. This ability is given to us by the divine, it is our choice to use it for good or bad. My abilities sharply increase to pretty undeniable levels after an accident and I was in the middle of adjusting to this situation when I began to say things to people they hadn't really told me about. Finally I was subject to ridicule and even called a 'freak'. But it really wasn't my fault that I had this accident or that I suddenly had this ability. Think of it this way... 'the brightest pin-point of light is ever so noticeable in the darkness'.
i use meditation. sit in pretzel position and close your eyes listen to your breathe come in and out.:cool:
The wonders of psychic abilities
I have been involved with psychic activities for over 40 years, and many lives as well :).
I often hear of people being fearful of these abilities. Fear comes from a lack of understanding. If you understand that these are abilities that everyone has but only few use then with a little confident practice you will see there is nothing to be fearful of. With practice you can foster these abilities to spread light and love and healing throughout the world. There are angelic forces available to all if only we call on them.
For an excellent website that describes a multitude of spiritual and psychic information please have a look at MindSoulSpirit. There is an area with student experiences where you can see there are many people who foster these abilities and work with them.
Blessing and Peace
This is to anyone with an opinion. I have gifts, I would rather give back than accept. Unfortunately, I don't have a choice. They come with the DNA (I think because I am not the only one in my family). How do you control Empathy so strong it has been known to control you? How do you control projecting Empathy and recieving Empathy? I actually have both among other things. Where do you find stability around people who are normally emotionally unstable? Empathy is the gift I have the most trouble with. It feels intrusive to know how someone else feels emotionaly, and it feels wrong to project my feelings on someone else simply because I have no control over it.
What do you do?
I use that empathy to understand another person's problem. That way I can best know what they need and how I can help them. To me it is a wonderful thing to be able to do. Stability will come from within you, not from other people. Understand the strength you have inside you and know that you are capable of helping people without being intrusive.
Peace and blessings.
Releasing negative emotions
When you feel anger, frustration ect.... rising up in you what you do is write everything down on paper. Write everything you feel. Get everything out until you have nothing more to write. Just keep writing pouring all your anger, frustration, ect... out on to the paper. You can include pictures or bold words by going over them again and again. Nobody is going to read this so don't try to be neat, just get all your feelings out. Use as many sheets of paper as needed. Then when you're all finished --- burn it. As you watch it burn know and feel you are releasing all those emotions.
*** remember to use common sense when burning the paper/s. Burn them inside in a fireplace or outside in a barbecue grill or a metal waste basket ***
If there is no way for you to safely burn them you can bury them in the ground knowing you are releasing your emotions and that they will decompose and be returned to the earth. Or you can write your papers with an ink of some kind that washes out or at least gets so blury that it is unreadable. When finished writing tear the papers up into tiny peices and flush them down the toilet knowing that you're flushing away your emotions.
Controling your Psi abilities
Is is very important to control your abilities so you are not at their mercy. You should control them and not allow them to control you. There are two methods I know of that can help. One I call the Aura Method, the other I call the Switch Method.
The Aura Method
This method I learned from Jeffery Seelman at STARCLEAR.
One thing about auras that many people don't realize is that they are there to help protect us from external unwanted negative energies. By creating a strong protective aura it will act as a buffer for energies, like other people's thoughts and bad moods and other things as well. With practice you can create a very strong protective aura that you command.
First you need to decide on your command words for....
1) Creating a protective aura
2) Making your protective aura stronger
3) Making your protective aura bigger
I like to keep things simple: my commands are "Shields Up!", "Stronger!", and "Bigger!". I use the word shield because it implies protection right from the start. You can command your aura either by saying the commands out loud or just in your head.
Once you have chosen your commands you have to use the same terms always so your aura knows what you want from it. This is another visualization.
1) Visualize yourself.
2) Command your protctive aura to appear and see your protective aura surrounding you. Make your protective aura a color that implies protection to you. I know many people use blue. At this point even though you are surrounded by a protective aura you can see yourself in the middle very clearly.
3) As you're visualizing this say your command for 'Stronger' and see more color in your aura as it becomes thicker. The image of you in the middle now becomes more difficult to see.
4) Now say your command for 'Bigger' and see your protective aura getting bigger.
5) Now visualize some unwanted energy coming at you ( you can see it as a colored shape of some kind or a word) and see it bouncing off your aura or at least getting very weak if it passes through..
Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 and play around making your protective aura bigger and stronger or bigger, bigger, bigger, stronger, stronger or what ever you want.
6) Now practice this for endurance, how long it lasts. When you first start, your protective aura tends not to last long, but with practice it will last longer. It is easier to practice this when you are out and about. Create your protective aura and maintain an awareness of it and when you feel it getting weaker or smaller just command it to get stronger or bigger. (you can tell how strong your aura is by how much outside energies you feel)
Practice this exercise and it won't take long before you can actually create it and feel a difference in the energies around you. Then you just make it bigger and stronger as you want to. For me when I say "Shields Up! I can feel my protective aura extend out to my wrist and I can feel a difference in the energies around me. If I'm in a store I can mentally say "Shields Up!" and I feel better immediately. I trained my aura to come up strong enough to handle most of the energies I come into contact with.
The Switch Method
This is a visualization that worked for me. I was getting overwhelmed by the input of my abilities and came up with this. Like I said it worked for me and I have heard of others that have used it sucessfully as well.
Visualize a wall with a switch on it. Above the swich is a label that reads 'Psi Abilities' in big letters. Next to the switch are smaller labels that read 'ON' and 'OFF'. Right now you should see the switch in the ON position. Now see your hand reaching up and thinking as you do this "I'm turning off my psi abilities now" and then flipping the swich to the 'OFF' position. Or see your hand reaching up and flipping the switch to the 'OFF' position and thinking "My psi abilities are now turned off." To make this work even better as you are visualizing this actually take your hand and move it like you are really flipping the switch. What this will do is ground your visualization in the physical world. Like all exercises this may or may not work the first time you try it. Just keep trying.
*** Warning --- Don't think you can turn off your abilities and just leave them off so you don't have to deal with them. If you do you will suffer the consequences!! Things like not being able to feel happiness and joy, inability to love someone else or feel their love for you. You become like a robot and just go through the motions of life and not able to experience life as it was meant to be experienced. It's horrible. And the longer you have them turned off the more difficult they are to turn back on. ***
You have to set aside sometime everyday or at least every week or 2 - 3 times a week so you can turn your psi abilities back on and work with them. Remember you want to control your abilities not lock them away in a dungeon so you can forget about them.
You can get creative and use a different switch for different abilities. You can also use a slide type of switch so instead of turning them off you can decrease their strength like a dimmer switch for a light bulb. *** Always remember to make them full strength so you can work with them on a regualr basis.***
I hope this helps somebody out there.
This is to Anyone--
I know from experience, time and distance will "de-tox" you from some one who is "overloading" you/your empathy, but how do you keep from "loosing" yourself in some one else's emotions? I have lost myself so completely, at times, that I cannot sort out my thoughts and feeling from another persons. I have been known to make myself sick because I am "sending" out so much energy to create a stable, contented, "happy" atmosphere/feeling. I don't know what I can do about this; it doesn't seem to have an OFF/ON switch. I am going to get into something like Yoga and meditation excercizes. How do you seperate your feelings from some one whos feelings and physical reactions are so strong you feel them? And as for my stability, I am actually normally pretty strong and stable; I know only true stability comes from finding your "center" inside yourself, but sometimes other people "overload" me with negative emotions and I loose this perspective. I get so concerned about others I often forget myself. I am not trying to turn it off so much as contiously control it. I have found "tuning" into others can make their day better and mine.
Jess...when you get "overloaded", when do you notice? Try observing yourself so you know when you start picking up negative "vibes", and not when you're already being overwhelmed.
Then, when you feel this happening, think of something that makes you happy. A happy tune, some movie that had you laughing, a puppy, a kitten, whatever gets you all smiling. Add in perhaps the feeling of sunshine on your face, and you should manage to shift your focus from somebody else's emotions to something happier.
Also, just locking everything else out for a few seconds and focusing on your breath might help. Imagine you're taking in the smell of hay, fresh flowers, a freshly mowed lawn, anything that for you is connected with pleasant memories.
Let me know if this works for you.
Psychic abilities are just.. the power of our soul... since we all of us have a soul then all of us are psychic :)
But these powers are more pronounced than the others because you have chosen to. You came forth to this physical reality saying "I'm going to the physical world with this ability and I'm sure lots of people won't feel good with me having this ability. So, I'll show them I am who I am and I won't change just to make them feel better."
A lot of those who thinks they are different says "I just wanted to be normal." Well what is "normal" anyway? Who gets to define what "normal" means? The society? your parents? your teachers? the priest?
Whatever our physical characteristics is and abilities are just fine. We are fine as we are. We don't need to change just to make others feel better. That's their problem not ours. If the only way they can be happy is controlling others then they're going to have a verry hard time.
