What Can I Do With My Psychic Abilities?


I'm 17 and I can see things I tend to mostly see shadows Occasionally I can also hear things like as if some ones talking but it only happens on occasions. I can also pick up energy and I can pick up peoples moods all the time. Some times I will have vivid dreams and I once had a conversation with some one that's dead in my dream. I been seeing things since I was little, and these other abilities pop up as I got older. I want to know if anyone has some of the things I do, and I also want to find out if I have a psychic ability or am I a highly sensitive person. I know that some people in my family seen things when they were little but as they got older they never seen things. I seem to be the only one in my family to still have abilities, and have more then anyone that had abilities I'm my family. I know what I have is some kind of gift but I just want to know how to also get use to it, and and some how master my abilities. If that is possible. Also some times when I pick up energy I kind of get tired, and I end up just staying in my bed for awhile, I'm guessing that it has to do with getting too much energy but why does it make me feel tired. Plus why would I out of all my family still have my abilities.

Many people lose their abilities as they get older because they don't grow on their abilities. Eventually hearing voices or seeing shadows would become unnoticeable and unrecognizable. When you're young your more susceptive to the paranormal. If you want to strengthen or learn to recognize your abilities and what you're seeing I would recommend doing a little research about your abilities. If you find yourself empathic (picking up on the feelings of others) research empathy and really learn about what it is and what people who have it have done with their abilities.

Hi Desi,
I can totally relate to you cause I'm 17 as well and after my 16th birthday I began to see auras. These abilities are new to me as well and it times they can be unsettling, so if you want someone to talk to about anything don't be afraid to contact me. The reason I'm doing this is because I don't have any realized psychic friends and there are times I find myself wanting to talk to someone who actually understands.
Good Luck 😆

Hi desi, welcome to the club. Now, this is not the club of people who are psychic (as that would be everyone on the entire planet), but of those whom REALISE they are! ^-^

Many people do seem to lose their abilities as they get older, though for some people these abilities seem to strengthen, sometimes without warning, or after a traumatic experience or practicing meditation for an extended period of time.

Seeing things in the spirit is known as 'clairvoyance' ("clear viewing").

If you are able to communicate with spirits that have passed on, then this is called "mediumship".

Sensing the feelings of others is known as empathy.

You would not feel tired after receiving energy, you would feel 'energised'.;) If you are feeling drained then something is drawing energy from you, not giving it. Such an entity is known as a psychic vampire. Some humans are psychic vampires, though this is rare and most do not realise what they're doing.

In order to prevent psychic attack, you need to practice shielding. This is what a psychic medium advised me to do. To strengthen your abilities, you need to calm and focus your mind, and the way to do that is via meditation. Also, work on your chakras. Every psychic will tell you the same thing.

You might also want to limit caffeine and stimulants, with the long term goal of giving them up entirely. I rarely have caffeine now, and my body feels much better for it.

As for what you can do with abilities, the more you connect with spirit, and your higher self, and God/the Universe/the Divine, the more you begin to feel at peace with the world and find your place within it. It is never an easy journey, but one well worth taking as I myself am just discovering. If you ask your guides for help, they will bring many people into your life and direct you to the right sources of information. Then, as you learn more, you will begin to find that you are also able to help others. We have these abilities for the benefit of others, not purely for ourselves--but in helping others, we also help ourselves--it is that karmic principle or what comes around, goes around.

I hope this gives you a starting point. Feel free to email me if you have any more questions.

Best wishes to you on your journey

Hi desi,

Apparently you are responding to energies emanating from a higher realm. If you wish to hone your abilities you simply have to state this fact and you'll receive instruction from those who wish to help you.

Treat your contacts as you would anyone else and start a conversation with them. Who knows, they may tell you something amazing. Good luck.
