Let me start by saying I am so glad that I found you guys on here! For years I have been struggling with this . I have turned to friends who have turned me away or have acted jealous, or have try to use me for their own personnel gain i.e. money or power. I have turned to "professionals" in the psychic business, they didn't believe me. I have read a couple of stories and I can relate to so many. I feel like I have found a sisterhood of sorts. My goal, really, for the past couple of years has been to study and experiment with different things to try and control this. It does come in handy when your in danger, but when you just need peace and quiet it can be hard to deal with.
A little about myself: I was born to the most caring, loving mother ever to exist, whom I suspect handed down the gift. I know it runs in the family because she can see ghosts, so does my brother but at the same time, she would never proclaim herself a grandmaster psychic of any kind, nor would she talk to much about it, she was just very humble about it and matter of fact. She also told me that I worry too much and magical thinking doesn't work. She used to write letters to all of us before she stepped on a plane just in case something should happen, she did this for us until the end. I think she knew our time was going to be short, but wasn't sure how short.
I started having empathic episodes when I was 9. The first one had to do with my mother dying. I remember just putting groceries away and suddenly I got this overwhelming fear of my mother dying. She reassured me that nothing was going to happen, but that day, I realized our time would be short, unfortunately so. When she first got cancer and we caught it, I thought that we beat it! And I was so relieved. 12 years later it came back, then, I knew I had something more than just empathic abilities. All my worst nightmares came true.
From then on, I took my "feelings" more seriously.
What I have come to you today for, is I need help narrowing the third eye a bit and gaining control if anyone knows how. I have friends who have closed the eye because they couldn't control what they had. I don't want to do that. I would like to narrow it to a need to know basis i.e. "don't forget the keys" kind of things or choose flight 89 instead. Because seriously, I think it's cool that I have such a gift but I don't need to know the color of the leaf that is going to fall in my mouth next fall. I just seemed to be so broad in my range these days and I need quiet in my head sometimes. I am considering going on medicine for this. I am in therapy now as well to talk through all this.
