I've known I've had gifts for years now. I first noticed them when I was in early public school. I could see things that no one else could and knew things that I was never taught. I could do math from a really early age and occasionally had premonitions in my dreams.
I also found out in phys ed that when I hit my top speed while running, I could somehow enhance my speed further, focusing on by body moving quicker. This got me 1st in 100m dash most of the way through public school. I soon learned that using the same technique, I could enhance any kinetic trait of my body. I'm still learning new things and I can take on someone three times my size because of my energy.
My strongest area is in auric energies. I had an idea that I could use my aura like a shield, blocking out other people's minds, or certain types of energy. I eventually came to the idea of using an elemental aura, and built on that by mixing the prime elements (Red-fire, blue-water, green-air, brown-earth) mixing them all together seemed to make a golden kind of energy, which was safe even when unstable. If it shifted too far to one element, it just shifted. No catastrophic damage to anything, just a clam shift.
Unfortunately, I found out quite the opposite when playing with light and dark energies. Though they're strong when mixed, they are about as stable as a one-legged chair, and can cause major problems with your moods, energies and attitude when they are unbalanced. They're not recommended.
I am also able to remote view and look into some people's memories, but I never use my gifts maliciously. I may be gifted, but I do not place myself above others, and I do not infringe on other people when I can help it, and help out whenever I can. If anyone has any comments, feel free. I may write back. It'd be nice to hear about others like me!
