I left this in another post relating to questioning whether an ability is present, so apologies for repeating. Any comments would be appreciated.
I have a similar situation and would like some guidance. I had several experiences earlier in life which led me to believe I had a certain level of psychic ability, but never really focused or developed (or verified) any potential. My experience started on my first visit to a spiritualist church age 15.
I was actually totally skeptical and looking to see how they were tricking the congregation. I was searching to see who would be selected next by the guest medium and clearly heard a voice in my right ear tell me it was going to be the chap on the end of the aisle. 2 minutes later - the chap was picked. I was sitting at the back of the room, far right with nobody sitting to the right of me.
Since then I have 1) seen what I believe to be my spirit guide 2) had a friend lose their keys on a 4 mile walk, ask my spirit guide for assistance and a 'mind's eye' image of the exact spot where to find the keys was given to me - the keys were exactly where shown, over a mile away from where we stood in thick grass. 3) several instances of voices telling/warning me of things about to happen - all but one happened within a very short time from being informed - some of which I managed to tell others about before they happened, including some unsavory instances.
I am 20yrs on from this period of being sensitive (or perhaps I am way off track and have no such abilities) but have recently started to feel similar feelings. I have had full conversations with my recently passed mother (but always in a relaxed state so real as they seem I cannot be sure at all).
I feel a certain presence often and with it comes overwhelming nausea & I get the distinct impression that communication is being attempted and I am somehow not tuning in properly...? During this presence I also hear a piece of music which I cannot quite put my finger on.
I think my question is similar in that even given all of the above I am unsure what to make of my situation, but feel that I would definitely like to develop my ability rather than ignore it (if in fact there is an ability to develop?)
Any guidance, suggestions or opinions would be gratefully received.
Many thanks, Ben
