I've always believed in the supernatural and psychic experiences. I have had premonitions like dreams, seeing numbers, and I have intuition where I know that something will happen. I've also seen spirits when I was young. I was never an imaginative child, yet I would see them in great detail but I could only see them for a fraction of a second. Typically they would be standing in the middle of the streets but they would occasionally appear in my home or in school. It would also happen when I looked up from where I was looking, but it almost felt like something willed me to move my head up to see these spirits.
I once willed myself to continue seeing a spirit out on the street and I was able to see her two more times that day. I wasn't able to see her after that. Unfortunately I'm now 17 and I haven't seen a spirit in years. I also have a hard time trying to focus on intuition instead of it coming naturally. Whenever my intuition comes naturally, it's almost never wrong, but when I try to use it on my own will then it hardly works. I have been able to tap in to it on a few rare occasions and it felt like something turned on in my brain and I was confident in its abilities. I want to tap into my experiences again and I want to see spirits, premonitions, and to get my intuition.
I feel that because I have been able to grasp these skills a few times in the past, I might be able to really use them if I nurture them correctly. A lot of people have said to connect with your chakras and spirit guides, but I've always struggled to find a good place to start and a lot of the sources that I've found clash with each other. I'm not sure where to start, is there anybody that could give me advice?
