I've discovered my abilities for about ten months now. One random night spirits started talking to me, and then - BAM. I got the five Claire's and I've lost three of them - clairailience, clairaudience, and clairgustance. The worst time of my life was when I just started and I was seeing spirits left and right, hearing voices and feeling people follow me. And yes, my parents had my brain checked and I was completely healthy.
Things got better, and I adapted after meeting a few Reiki masters. I wasn't born with the "dark eye", what the people of my country call a natural medium. I only saw auras and premonitions for clairvoyance and was intuitive, empathic, telepathic, and able to use the dowsing ability for clairsentience. (Also, I can use energy healing, but even normal humans can learn that.)
I struggled with empathy and telepathy - and I'm STILL struggling. Most of the times I get affected by other's emotions. When they get angry, I get irritated and snap at people, and I don't have any crystals with me at school, so I just go in a bad mood for the rest of the day. As for being telepathic, it's even worse. I'm accused of cheating and copying the person next to me because my work pieces (usually drawings and ideas) are always the same. What does this mean? Am I affecting them with my thoughts, or are they affecting me? And when I'm reading or watching television, I think about something that would happen in the plot or a particular object for no reason. And then whatever I thought happens. Are these predictions?
One point I'm making here: telepathy isn't a sentence that you project to people - it's an emotion or a feeling or a random thought inside your head. And I'd like you - if you're a developed empath/telepath, answer my questions about being clairsentient.
