I Fear I May Have Lost My Psychic Abilities


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?

Evil spirits are not welcome. Say that. Imagine your self in a bubble of safety. The spirits cannot enter it. Best of wishes. If things get worse, seek help, but don't get worried. Just stay calm, and do not feed into any bad spirits games. The others will go on their own 😊

A spirit guide is like a "helping force" in your life (hence the name). Most of the literature about them tends to think they were other beings that we knew from a past life, or someone who has passed on on this current life that has come back to help you. (also, you might want to look up animal totems and animal spirit guides, as both of these are similar to spirit guides).

As for them deciding which abilities you have, I don't think that is why they are with us; I feel that you yourself decide which ones you want to work with, and they (the spirit guides) help you achieve your goal.

In terms of getting stronger and strengthening your sight, the best way to do this is practice. Meditation helps, when done properly, but above all practice is the key. (I've said this before, but there is no "easy way out"; It takes time to enhance abilities, and that amount of time varies from person to person).

Finally, a possible reason you feel safer with spirits is maybe because you are used to them. My old house used to have 3 spirits in it (way back when I was really little), and I just thought they were another part of the family.

What's a spirit guide? I've never heard of that before... Are they supposed to decids what abilities you get? Mine are Air, Fire, Electricity, Visions, See Auras, Telepathy, Telekinesis, and Healing. I can Sense, and Feel spirits. Occasionally Hear and See. How do I improve my sight? How do I become stronger? And why do I feel safer with spirits than people?

You can put up a sheild like Fossilera said. I don't do that. I basically leave everything alone and I know how you feel. I get like that, too. All I can say is that you will get used to it.

tell the spirit that you can only help them one at a time so your mind and body can rest. 😉

i to have had these problems and the salt at the entrance trick does work but one other good way to do it is to use a dispelling circle the way it works is like this
first get something to draw a circle on like paper note do not use pencil use pen or chalk
next create the circle it does not matter how big it is
now take some rosemary and salt and put a thin layer of the mix inside the circle
now when you put your mental block down the spirits will come back. To keep the scary spirits away simply mutter this "spirits of darkness shall enter no more spirits of light shall be embraced I call for the aid of those who are good turn these dark spirits from my mind".this should drive the spirits away
if this doesn't work I'm sorry but I hope this will help.

Well good points suggested, will have to try them.
I've found the spirits so fearful, unlike any fear I have felt anywhere else. From 5 years to 28 years it's the same fear. Almost paralyzed with fear.
For me, I am always in bed and they are in the doorway, so try closing the bedroom door before you go to bed. And also I ignore them, even know they are staring you right in the eye. I put my head under the covers, pray and go back to sleep.

Perhaps it is a "mental block" as someone previously indicated. Although, I would like to say that you do not need your "psychic abilities." And I wonder why you would desire to regain them... Bargaining with spirits is a risky trade, be wary of the advice you receive.

Generally when a spirit realizes someone can hear or see them they let the word out quickly, lol & other spirits start visiting, imagine how excited you would be if you were constantly ignored by everyone you came into contact with than suddenly found one person that could hear & see you.
Remember a spirit was once a living person, they come in all different personalities & temperments just as when they were alive. Just because someone dies doesn't mean they are filled with light & love. Lol
Your abilities stopped because your spirit guides saw your fear, & you & they shut that part of your reception down. I would suggest you say some prayers or surround yourself with white light of protection & meditate... Ask for your spirit guides help to understand how you can help the spirits & what your role is for them, if you are not comfortable with the spirit contact tell your guides & look into diffent forms of psychic gifts that you would be more comfortable with.
I understand what you have gone through, sometimes it seems there are a thousand voices speaking at once, but I can't hear any one spirit because there are so many. Lol Basically everything is YOUR decision, you set the boundaries, be firm & keep talking with your guides, & expressing what you are feeling & ask for their help.
Hope this helps, Good Luck!

Hello mattm1992,

Here's some answers to your questions

1. Your abilities didn't actually go away. Sometimes, when your mind thinks they have become too much to handle, it will put up a "temporary block". This could have also been caused by your fear.

2. The best way to fight fear is knowledge about what is causing the fear. In your case, a starting point would be to look up information on these topics: spirits (in general), clairvoyance, and probably mediumship.

The second step is to ask yourself: why do you fear them? Try to find what makes them scary to you.

For example, you could be afraid of the fact that they "seem to be everywhere", or that they were mean to you.

The third step is to "fight the fear". If a negative entity is bothering you, treat it like a bully; The more power you give it, the more it will bother you.

An optional step is to look into shielding (see below).

3. To keep the entities from bothering you while you sleep, you can try some of the following.

-Leave a small layer of salt across any entryway. (NOTE: This is popular online, I cannot vouch for it to be effective. However, I'll still include it because it seemed to have worked in one case of mine).

-Ask the spirits to let you sleep. I know how weird that sounds, but in theory, if they are coming to you for some reason, then they are doing it on "your turf and time". Once again, doing this was recommended in a few books on the subject.

-Shielding. Basically, this is where you create a "barrier" of energy around you that blocks out what you like. There are various techniques that one can follow.

The shielding technique that I often recommend is one called the "White Light" Shield. Because there's many alterations as to how this shield is made, this is a simplified version from one of my previous posts:

1. Get yourself calm. You don't need to be in a trance, but you should try to stay calm and relaxed.

2. Imagine a bright, white light surrounding you. For example, you could see it as a fountain or waterfall falling on your head from above, and spilling onto your body.

If you cannot visualize these things as well, then you could try another sense: Hear the sound as the white light falls on you (maybe like water, or music), feel the warmth as it hits you (think of how sunlight feels), think of how it smells (maybe like roses or a spice), or how it tastes (like your favorite food).

3. This is where your creativity gets involved. Some are content to just have the light surround them, while others like to see it fill the room (you might want to try that), or have the light spiral around them. If it helps, see the light growing in intensity while the offending spirit shrinks in size.

Hope this helps some, and I apologize for the long read.
