My story goes back maybe 11 years or so now back to when I was about 10. I always knew that psionic abilities ran in my blood, my mother is a medium as is her mother and my uncle is a clairvoyant. The list goes on but those are the most prominent in the family. Anyway, I had always felt a strong connection with the elements but at my young age it was always manifesting in different ways. Such as burning hand, a common precursor to pyrokinetic abilities. Then it would jump randomly to frost hands, a precursor to hypothermo- and hyrdokinesis, then to a strange strong tingling sensation which I now know to be my chakra flowing at my command. I started focusing on all the base elements and just worrying about bringing my chakra out and connecting it to the element that it drifted to. After about a year and a half of this searching process on my 12th birthday I remember waking up that morning to one thought and one thought only "Wind." I immediately closed my eyes and felt the air in the room shift and the more I focused my chakra the more it moved. Mind you, it was a very slight movement and I'm sure that had anyone else been in the room they may not have felt it.
The years went on and I slowly started building it up more and more and soon found out that to an extent I can control the weather by pulling air from two different directions, creating two fronts and when the fronts would hit they'd created a storm. That's the extent of my abilities on a macrokinetic scale now days. Remember that this is not an instant effect and does require time and good atmospheric conditions for the ability to work smoothly as well as a decent amount of mental and physical energy. But as the years have gone by it has become easier.
On a microkinetic scale (immediate area around me to with-in about 50 miles) I can create strong gusts of wind up to about 30 mph which I am working on that to make that better. I have learned over the years to remain in control of my emotions because my abilities are very much controlled by them and the last time I got really angry there was a tornado that struck downtown Ft. Worth, Texas roughly 5 years ago. Only once since then have my emotions gotten the better of me and I got really upset and caused it to rain about 18 inches a day for a week straight.
Well that is the story of how my powers developed. I'm happy to share the training exercises that I used over the years and ones I use to this day. With due regard to all who ask for my assistance, it may take me two or three days to reply to your comments/request, I am active military duty and am currently undergoing medical training. Please, keep that in mind when asking for assistance because I do have my family to take car of and then means that I can't have my entire focus on assisting you all I apologize in advance. I wish I could, I love helping people out when I can.
