We recently asked our Psychic Advisors to share stories of when they discovered their psychic abilities. Just like everything else in life, no two stories are identical. Yet as you will see below, all have some similarities at the same time.
In their own words, here are the responses of some of our most beloved Psychic Source Advisors as to when they discovered their own psychic abilities and unique gifts.
For sixteen years I was a psychic researcher for a well-known journalist and researcher who wrote books on science and the fringes of science. During that time, while living in London, I was asked by the University of London Parapsychology Dept. to be part of an experiment attempting to develop a system to measure psychic ability. The testing went on for six months and I scored extremely high in all categories. To my surprise, I learned that some others who never had any prior psychic experiences scored almost as high. The study concluded that all people have some degree of psychic ability but few seek to develop it.
After returning to the U.S., I began to think of the great number of people who had never considered developing their innate psychic ability. I decided to take my sixteen years of developing and using my psychic ability, and put together a program to enable interested people to develop their own psychic ability. I began teaching students at my home and ran these classes for many years.
Growing up I didn’t know I was psychic. I thought everyone saw the world the way I did way… boy, was I wrong. I remember being in the second grade at Catholic School when I first realized something was going on. I was sitting at my little school desk hearing my teacher, Sister Jean, sobbing and crying, even though at that moment she wasn't. Yet, I also knew why she was crying and that everything was going to be okay. So, I took a deep breath and walked up to her desk without asking permission, which was a big no-no. When we locked eyes, and before she could start scolding me, I calmly told her: “It's okay. There’s no need to cry. Sister Marie is going to be okay. She’s going to be fine.” The towering nun looked down at me like I was Damien or something and told me to sit down. The moment I got back to my desk, Mother Superior started tapping on the microphone of the PA system. When she started to talk, I felt Sister Jean’s piercing eyes. Mother Superior asked for a moment of silent prayer for Sister Marie, who had just been rushed to the hospital. Apparently, it was very serious, but after a week, Sister Marie made a full recovery.
Needless to say, that’s when I first kind of realized I saw the world differently – not to mention having Sister Jean sprinkle Holy Water on me while in line genuflecting to the sound of her clicker. There were also a few times I basically horrified my parents as a child - when I’d walk up to complete strangers, to tell them stuff I knew they needed to know. Those moments didn’t go over very well, especially in my family. I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to do that kind of thing. Instances like that growing up actually taught me to squash and not use “my gifts.” It wasn’t until after graduating college that I started to understand exactly what my gifts were all about.
At a very young age, approximately 7 years old, the people who came to receive healing from my grandmother, felt an attraction towards me, and I was happy to receive them until my grandmother said: “You will be my successor in this ancestral lineage.” From then on coming from the school, she transmitted her wisdom to me in all branches of the Spirit: Healing, Alchemy, Metaphysical, Psychic Readings, Shamanism, and the magic of acting and speaking with the heart. She instilled me with the wisdom of the light: TRUTH, FORGIVENESS, LOVE!
I was six years old when I first became aware of experiencing many subtle undercurrents of what was happening or going to happen. I actually blurted out bold visions much to my mother's horror and embarrassment whether it be about her or another. I was simply being myself as best I could.
When I was 16 years old, I got a big shock upon realizing that I saw and knew things my friends didn't. This gave me an absolute sense of being different in a manner that I couldn't yet fully realize, either as a talent or a gift. It was my constant state of heightened awareness, whether by sensing, hearing, knowing, feeling or seeing what was happening, that sealed the deal to my complete recognition of my life path with metaphysics.
