I'm writing this story to get some help or advise on my situation. I'm worried that I may have lost my psychic abilities.
Background info: I've always been sensitive to peoples energies/auras and energies around me, but I really started noticing I had "abilities" about two years ago, at the age of 16, when spirits/ghosts began showing up in my room. I told my mom what was happening and I found out this kind of stuff runs in my family (my grandma, aunts, and a few cousins have psychic abilities). As the visits from these entities became more frequent I sought help from my cousin. She is only 4 years older than me, but she has been dealing with this from a young age. I looked up to her as a kind of mentor because she can see/talk to ghosts, has premonitions, reads tarot cards professionally etc. She showed me how to expand my abilities. Over the next year or so My sensitivity or empathy increased, I began having visions and deja vu and had even seen/spoken to one of my guides.
My Problem: As my other abilities started to increase so did the spirit activity in my house. It was like my house had become a bus stop and spirits were constantly coming and going. These spirits were not always nice, and this frightened me. I was so afraid I slept with the light on and the TV on so I couldn't hear them. AS this fear consumed my life I noticed everything just kind of went away. I guess my questions are How do I, or can I, get my abilities back? How do you not be scared? And lastly, Is there a way to set boundaries or something with spirits so they don't bother me while I sleep?
