I Want To Be Taken Seriously


This is my first article and I'm quite new to this website and I think that maybe you can help me with a little problem. First off I want you to know that I am psychic, like I know I'm psychic and I am very proud of my god given gift but when ever I talk about it, I feel childish and stupid. Yesterday I took an online ESP/psychic test and my scores were very low. So I decided to take the test again and I got a low score again. Now I wasn't sad or anything because there is no doubt in my mind that I'm not psychic but it did make me frustrated. I have been able to predict the near future for years and I have gotten very good at it but I just feel like I am not taken seriously and I want to help people.

I really just feel like god didn't give me these powers to just sit around and predict thunderstorms and when the phone I about to ring. I really want to have a closer relationship with friends and family to where they don't giggle when I'm trying to read them. When people do that it is honestly so difficult for me to even take myself seriously.

All I really want to know is how to make this a serious subject with my friends and family and not seem like one of those fake psychics that you would see at a fair, you know? I would like to maybe even start a small business.

Please leave comments on how to have a real discussion with the important people in my life and how to convince them that this may be something that can change lives (I take being psychic very seriously) and maybe you can help me in this situation thank you!

I agree with AnneV, you have to be good at it, and after that people will take you seriously (some people, close minded ones don't want to believe on that, so don't obsess with that, not everybody is prepared to accept that reality).

About psychic test, don't mind about it, I agree with fossilera.
Also imo there are different levels of psychic and when you practice you can improve (my own experience) so maybe you aren't in your optimum level. 😉

First of all - do not trust the online tests. As a programmer, I can tell you most of them work with random number generators, or are programmed to give you false positives.

Second, here's the problem with most abilities nowadays.
1. Most people are programed to not believe in them. Chances are, unless your friends and family are understanding of the abilities themselves, you won't be able to discuss anything serious.

2. If you want to change the world around you - you need to find a way to use the abilities to your advantage. For example, I can sense peoples' emotions - if they are upset, I know how to say the right thing to cheer them up.

3. If there's one lesson I've learned, it's that you can't convince people you are psychic. None of my friends are, but that doesn't mean I'm not close with them.

The thing is that if you do not feel confident with who you are, then the idea of talking about your talent is not going to be received as valid. I can talk about being a psychic/medium with conviction in my voice and if anyone objects I am okay with it. I am confident in who I am. But as a psychic/medium; I totally disapprove of other people who claim to be one or the other, or even both to use the ability as a money-making avenue. Those are the people I see as frauds and I will not believe anything they say.

I can totally relate to this. Something I've found is that some people will always laugh, but not necessarily in the name of humor. Some people just aren't open to psychic abilities, and they most likely never will be.

I agree with Anne. The only way you will be taken seriously is if you do what you do well.

And don't worry about those online tests. Your biggest power is not doubting yourself.

The best way to be taken seriously is to become good at what you do, whatever that is, doesn't matter if it's being psychic, an artist, teacher, etc. To become good, you have to practice like any other talent. Anyone who wants to be taken seriously from a mature point of view let's their work speak for them. An artist doesn't say, "Take me seriously." They put out their very good work and people say "Wow, that's an incredible artist". They let their work speak for them and earn their respect by their output versus their words. So as much as you can, continue studying the field, take classes from people such as Pam Coronado (no plug here, she's just a good psychic and a good teacher) and above all, practice. Practice in the form of trying to see what is on the news before you go to cnn. Try and see the weather over the next few days before checking that. Try and remote view the lottery numbers before checking that webpage. There are tons of ways to work on this on your own. And once you start demonstrating your well developed skills, then people will respect what you are. If they don't, then they are too closed minded anyway and there is no convincing that type of personality.

Hope this helps.
