I am a 13 year old girl, Catholic and raised to believe that psychic powers of any such were natural-born abilities or sourced from the devil. Through my own discoveries, I was able to figure out that this is not true, everyone has the abilities, and it just lies dormant in the average human. Through websites and tons of reading I've been able to develop my abilities, which include clairsentience, empathy, energy-sensing and slight essences of other things.
Well, I never got into depth into my abilities until once I was walking home and saw my first ghost. He was standing on top of a building and threw himself off. I freaked because I thought he was alive and had hurt himself, but soon enough he got up off the ground, stared at me, and disappeared. There for one second, I blink, and GONE.
After that I saw strange people along the streets, orbs flying around, but what scared me most of all was the blood stains, the literal blood on the walls. My friend who is also a psychic has a room covered in them. When you focus on them you get a name and age.
That same friend has also been an informant for the spirit council. They say it's time for my awareness and her awakening. They will come to me in a dream when I'm ready. This council controls who has gifts but cannot control whether it is used for good or evil. They have not approached me yet (has been about four months since I was told this).
Last but not least, the past life visions. If I get into a certain position or say something, I'm pulled into past life visions. One is where I'm chained up against a wall and a woman, with three fox tails and a sorcerer staff (a stick with a crystal ball on top) cups water in her hand from a stone angel and walks over to me. Her eyes were hazel, almost a rainbow, and as soon as I looked into them I was scared and angry.
As I searched into them, I thought the name of my friend, and said it out loud. Her eyes widened, and I get pulled out of it at that point. The friend whom I thought of (who also happens to be the informant) showed me a sketch in her sketchbook the next day with a carbon copy of the woman in her book, saying it was one of her past lives. There were lots of symbols floating above her head, they looked like cult symbols, and I was able to recognize each one and figure out which one her past life had.
After a really powerful past life vision, one where I got shot, all my abilities seemed to have disappear. Meditation I'm already doing. I would like to develop my abilities just to have them and protect everyone if anything happens. All I can do right now is astral project (a little bit, I get stuck at parts of my body when exiting) and listen to the spirits. Any tips for reviving my clairvoyance? And becoming ready for the spirit council to approach me? What should I do when I receive these visions, get all this information about random deceased? Thanks so much.
