My name is Melanie, I'm 26 years old and I come from a family of psychics. Apparently my grandmother is an extremely powerful medium, as are some of my aunts and female cousins. This "gift" seems to affect mostly the females, although I know that my brother has had dreams about our ancestors, which he found out after recognizing some of them on family pictures he hadn't seen before.
I have lost two friends of mine during the last few years, and all of them came to my mother shortly after their deaths, one through her dreams, whilst the other spoke directly to her and sent her images. As for me, I know that I have a very sharp intuition and have seen one or two spirits in my life, but I believe that the family "gift" came to me in a different way: I can read the Tarot and it never ever lies to me.
Also, I once had a dream about one of my past lives. It was very scary and I remember waking up screaming, like in the horror movies. Now I won't post the details of this dream here since it was pretty gory, but I researched the few bits of information I remembered from the dream and everything fits historically speaking.
So here are my questions: do any of you have psychic abilities that were passed down by your female ancestors? And how can one learn to develop these abilities? I feel (and have been told) that there is a strong power inside of me but that it's still "asleep", and that I need to find a way to awaken it. What do you guys think about all of this? Do you have any suggestions to develop psychic powers? Would my tarot reading alone be enough to achieve this? Thanks much for your help!:)
