I was recently asked about when psychic abilities develop and if they are related to events that happen in one’s life, like death or trauma.
I don't think that events in a life necessarily make that big a difference. But I do think that there are "growth" spurts in this area just like there are growth and change spurts in your physical body. It seems that quite a few people begin to notice psychic abilities coming forward when they reach puberty and as they grow in their personal lives, these abilities can grow and develop also.
It also seems (at least in my experiences) that you reach stages in your development, especially if you are consciously trying to develop these areas, where you reach a plateau and stay at one place for a while. Then at some point or through some test or study or practice or meditation...it really is a mystery and can be different with each person...you suddenly find yourself at a new level of awareness. I guess the lesson is that you don't want to take it for granted, but you also don't want to let it consume your life or define you as an individual.

Fate has it that I was asked this same question only today!!
I have been psychic since roughly the age of 3-4, can't be more explicit than that as my memory is dreadful and those that would know are now dead.
I feel that my abilities have developed over various spaces of times in my life, particularly those connected with study or strong emotions.
For a long while I ignored the psyhcic experiences, hoping that they would go away and in deed, ghosts that appear now do leave me alone if I ignore them( sounds really rude doesn't it?)
I am glad to say though that time has treated me kindly and time alone has allowed me to absorb the positive elements of my gift. I would love to share this knowledge and experience with others out there that have trod the same path and haven't found themselves as blessed as I do!

My experience also is that when I strain too hard to learn a new psychic skill, it can slow down the process!

You have a special gift. I appreciate your down to earth and legitimate readings.
So many people view psychics (mostly due to
stereotypes on television)as crazy sorts who
are only out to take your money.
I did take Gavin & Yvonne Frost school of Wicca and they said most of us have the ablility to be psychic, but we lose it along the way.
I know if I write something in a fictional story, it might happen later on a very small scale. Or if I think about a song it plays on the radio. I certainly don't have Linda's gift, (I wish I could see my passed away mother) but I certainly appreciate and respect those that do.

I really love this subject and I really wish I could regain access to all my astral/psychic powers/abilities and regain access to my superconscious mind while living in this body. If you visit my url, you'll see why I want this and you'll also see that I have knowledge but no experience and I cannot use what I know! It's like a plane trying to lift off but cannot fly, it can only drive on the ground!

Oh what a great post, thought provoking and all that. A lot of people have the ability but do not use it. This might tempt them to look into it further.

I recommend John Friedlander's Basic Psychic Development to those looking to build a good foundation for grounded work with energy that is good for the soul.

This is a very hard subject really. How do you develope yourself yet remain in a rational mind.
Many a time I have heard voices , or had thoughts that wouldnt always be my own but its how to control those thats the hard part. I belive all of us have the psychic power its just a case of delving deep and finding this energy.

My own psychic work grew out of studying w/ an intuitive/spiritual guide and hours of meditation. My feeling is that we are all one energy, and so all have access to psychic capacities.
However, I also feel that it's like golf. We could all play golf, but who is going to spend the time practicing?! If it's your inclination to play golf, then you do it.

Please dont mess with wicca...
A friend of mine had gotten involved in that and everyone she knew in it was depressed and drained. Their energy force was wiped out. Its the equililant of a ouiji board. Too much neg energy associated with it.
There is only one source of truth and light in our selves and it comes from the Lord. As all good comes from him, and him only. It is however up to us to finetune the gift.
Please also protect yourself with a prayer prior to any activity you may get involved with too. There are always neg beings that try to sneak in with the good...

You bring up some interesting observations. Its as if there is a psychic safety valve that prevents one from acquiring more psychic ability than he or she is capable of using at any one point in their lives.

Hi there all, I had a gift long ago, at the age of ten it was taken away and I became less of a person,I could see the future at a moments glance, obviously I found it a great source, it helped me in every day things, does anybody have any real idea's how I could regain my talents, before I grow to old or even die.
I'm fifty one year old, it would have been nice to have regained my completeness.
As a young lad, I grew up with my two younger brothers, yet I suppose it wasn't quite as normal as you might expect, yet I hadn't thought I was any different to anyone else,I hadn't considered for a single second others couldn't be like myself.
My brother Alan at the age of five, simply thought this was simply an older brother thing, that every older brother could do. There's two year's between myself and my brother Alan, and three years between myself and my younger brother Kevin, so I guess as a young child I was slightly closer to my brother Alan, I shared every-day
premonitions, just as you'd share toys and sweets every day, what kind of gift did I have, it was a mixture, I could see the future as I wanted too, obviously most of my visions was focused around myself and my family, also I could see into those who crossed me, I will explain as a young lad, me and a friend used to go to the toilets together, just to mess around as you do as five year olds, flushing toilets and the sort, all harmless fun, Yet one day I came back to class to be confronted by my teacher to be told I had written something horrible in chalk on the toilet walls.
I was faced with the wooding ruler across my young knuckles, I asked myself the question who would do such a thing, the moment I put my mind to it, my best friend face came to my mind,then it was if I was in his mind feeling all his emotions, at that point I knew more than I should have having perfect knowlege of his guilt.
Another case, walking back from school I had a vision of my brother Alan coming off his bike, and hurting his elbow as he scraped it off the wall, it always came true. I seen myself coming off my bike, and I fell on a broken bottle, then I seen myself at the doctors with my mother, the doctor now cleaning up my knee, then I became aware there was more broken glass still in my knee, I had to remember not to forget when it happened to tell the doctor there was more glass in my knee, of course she was shocked when she pulled out a hidden piece of glass that was still deeply hidden deep into my flesh, she almost stitched it up with the glass still in my leg and so it went on every day, until my ten birthday, I had one last premonition, telling me that this was the last time I would have such total control over it. It has lasted through my life, in one form or another, but the degree of control I had over my talent had gone.
Does anyone have an idea how I could go about getting it back, it's like having sight up until the age of ten, then losing your sight, to remain blinded in this world.

It is a lifelong journey to develop your pscyhic abilities and often a difficult one at that. Find those that support you, a community of other gifted beings, so your gifts may flourish!

I love the way you write Linda. So honest and easy to read.
