I'll start this story with my first psychic power. My first power was to have a still picture in the middle of my dream, that I would see later in life, usually within a week or two. I hated this power for several reasons. First of all, I never remembered the dream until I saw the image again, so I never knew if my power was working. Second, it turned on and off, as in, sometimes it was once a week, then maybe skip a few weeks, then maybe a few times a week, it was just unpredictable. Third, at first I thought it was a coincidence, so I felt kind of like a freak.
My second power was similar, only instead of seeing a picture, I saw black, and I heard something someone said, then I heard my own thought, as a witty comment on what I'd heard. There were some problems with this one, too. First, I only remember it happening once, but I know that I had it a few other times. Second, it was very weird because I couldn't see anything, but I could recognize the voices.
Third, again, it was a dream and couldn't remember until I heard the same sounds again. On the bright side, I heard what I'd heard the dream, the same day of the dream. The first power usually took a few days, the second was usually very soon. The third, was a small scene during a dream, with sight and hearing. It was usually only a few seconds, like 10 or 20. This one I enjoyed a bit more, but the only thing is, it was still in a dream, and didn't remember until it happened.
All of these weren't of very much use both because I couldn't remember them, and, nothing significant happened in them. They were all everyday things. No marriages, deaths, just all normal stuff. None of these have happened this year. I've also realized that they usually only happen when I'm sad or depressed for a few weeks or whatever, but I've been very happy.
But, I have kept my fourth power, which I've just gotten in the summer of '09. I'm not exactly sure what it is, like, I understand it's a power, but I'm not sure if it's mind reading, or controlling someone's thoughts. The reason I'm unsure, someone else and I get the same thought, but I'm not sure who gets it first. The first time it happened, the other person seemed to get it first, but now its progressively seeming like I get the idea way before the other person. I'm also not sure if it's a coincidence because it doesn't happen very often, but when it does happen, I get it a few times in a day. But there may be a few weeks of a gap in between the times it happens again. Also, I can't control it at all.
If anyone could answer my questions, I'd appreciate it.
First, why are there gaps between the uses of my powers?
Second, how do I control my fourth power?
Third, which power do you think the fourth is? Mind reading or controlling?
Please don't tell me to pray or meditate, because "God" hasn't been there for me, ever, so I'm agnostic. Thanks for the help!
