Where to begin? My first psychic experience was when I was about 10. I had used telekinesis but didn't realize it at the time. I had made a flag pole hit another student. The way it was positioned should have not made it possible for it to happen but it did. I forgot about this ability.
When I was about 12-13 I had started to get interested in psychic abilities. So I started meditating. It helped me relax. But the thing is I have something called Aphantasia, which means I can not voluntarily see images in my minds eye. So I can't see images if I try to visualize it but I can still have dreams when I'm asleep. So when I first started to meditate it would just be darkness I see no images, its more thoughts than pictures. With the aphantasia I do not experience daydreams fully with all five senses. I'm lucky just to see a color now and then. So when I started meditating I did start to see images but it was more just a speck or small section of my minds eye not like a full view. I would just see random images, it did get to where I started to see stuff where it happened later on. It would be something I would see on tv or read. Then one day I saw a murder. I didn't know when it would happen or how to stop it. I didn't find out until months later that it actually happened. This scared me so I stopped meditating for a while. So I focused on trying to develop other abilities. During this time I started to hear spirits, and see orbs. The hearing spirits would be when I'm alone they would be footsteps and things creaking and bangs. I wasn't afraid. Id occasionally see orbs. When I would wake up from sleeping I could see orbs but after fully waking up I couldn't see them. I also had empathy, I could send thoughts to people and a couple other things I don't remember off the top of my head.
When I started becoming aware of my abilities it made me question god and why I can do these things when I was taught that its something that the devil does and that I'm possessed or something. That my abilities are evil. I believed my abilities came from god it was during this time that my experiences took a turn to the worst when I renounced my belief in god. I had attracted a demon and was being haunted. My abilities to hear and see spirits made being haunted terrifying. I started to see shadows and I even heard hell. The screams and the sounds I can't even describe it. There's no words for it. I saw a shadow man with a top hat. I hated being alone. I couldn't stand the quiet because I would hear the sounds. I became terrified of everything. I told my parents about it and they thought I was crazy I was sent to see a shrink and put on medication for schizophrenia I was recently able to get off the medication on my own.
Now I want to be able to use my abilities without being terrified.
What do I do?
One way to be able to use your "abilities" is by stopping to link them with your belief in God. Do not associate religion with them.
When you keep bringing religion to every aspect of your life you also keep bringing the chains that those beliefs carry, so if you BELIEVE the something came from God or is somehow connected to the Devil you bring those bad/good situations to yourself.
As for your feelings of being inadequate of "being protected" either work on being able to protect yourself-as it should be everyone's aim-or get in your head that your god is said to "love everyone equally", so based on that even if someone of your faith were to renounce him he would still love them enough to protect them.
[at] Storm5 You are born with abilities of your past lives or you conquer your abilities. Nothing is given.
And having this belief that God is the one responsible for the abilities you have is the same as giving someone else all the credits of your works as well as control over your life. What happen's to people is due to their own choices and the choices of those around them.
