Should I Enhance My Powers Or Get Rid Of Them?


I am 16 years old and I'm in a crisis right now. For a very long time since I was little I have seen or heard things that I'm not sure if they were actually real or not. I remember in my younger years I have seen strange glows around people and have heard and seen ghosts. But then as I grew older these strange things have went away. Now as I have gotten older I have noticed that these strange appearances have slowly been coming.

Around when I was 13 this is when I think that these strange things started to come again. I started to hear and see ghosts again and this was scaring me because I think that it is all just in my head. I started to hear this more frequently as time went by and it was driving me crazy and somehow I was able to shut out this thing and I didn't experience this thing anymore. I thought my troubles were over but they were not, there was actually more to come.

As I was growing I finally came out of middle school and went into high school still thinking that this problem wouldn't ever come again. As time went by I started to notice some more weird things again. I noticed things like me getting really cold out of nowhere when it was a perfectly sunny day. This was just the start of it, eventually I started to get random outbursts of emotions out of nowhere like me getting really angry or sad for no reason. I don't know why this happens and I'm wondering why this keeps happening to me.

Also for some reason these strange things keep getting stronger and they keep growing. Eventually I started to see the strange glows again around people and they have different colors with different people. I was also starting to see and hear ghosts again and I was freaking out. I was getting sick and tired of it so I tried to get rid of these "powers" and I did get rid of these "powers", but every time I get rid of these "powers" they disappear for a little while and they come back even stronger than before.

My crisis from the beginning of my story is whether or not I should try and get rid of these powers or should I just try accept what I have and try and enhance these "powers". I have told very few people about what I have and the people that I tell don't really believe me and say I'm just crazy or just seeing things. I have told my parents as well and they told me that these "powers" run in the family but I don't really think that its true. Please tell me do I actually have "powers" or am I just crazy?

How wonderful that you want to embrace your "gifts." You will be able to do so much good for humanity. You are not crazy, and you should believe your parents--these kinds of things do often run in the family. You should be very glad they told you that because many young people have parents who tell them they are nuts and do everything they can to shush their children. Not good. So hopefully you can be open with your family. And right, there's really nothing to be afraid of, but I would encourage you to practice psyshic protection on a daily basis.

Thanks for the advice everyone. So at least I know that I'm not going crazy and based what other people have said it actually sounds what I have is a pretty good thing. I have decided to keep what I have and embrace it. Thank you everyone 😁

Rudy, as Anne said, no one can make this decision for you. It's what you want in your life. But we can talk and help each other, and though you could go the other way, you may find these strange things may be kind of fun. Sometimes it's scary, and I totally understand. But I've grown to love this new world, maybe you will too.

The strange lights you see/saw are auras-the energy of the person surrounding them. The different colors (in my experience) represent different moods.

The ghosts (spirits) aren't usually there to hurt you. Given there are some 'evil' entities, most are here to help you: advice, warnings, helpful hints. If you can learn to listen to them they are really helpful. I've had friends who were in really bad situations-tornado areas, cars, robberies even- when they had a voice tell them to get out. They listened, and the next day there was a tornado that wrecked the neighborhood they had just been in. Armed robberies in the bank they'd been in just an hour ago.

You're not going crazy, no matter how many 'normal' people tell you you are. If you'd like, I'd love to talk to you, to help you learn about this. It's a lot of fun, if you let it be. But it's your choice.

I get feelings like that a lot too. I don't really have any one to talk to about this so I'm kind of taking care of this myself. It is kind of scary, but I've learned to except I and try to enhance them.
I'm worried what other people will think of me if I tell them. 😕

Your story is really similar to my own. I'm 14 now, and strange things keep happening to me; my predictions are becoming more accurate and I am frequently getting de ja vu. When I was young I used to see a lot of ghosts and this was proven by my mums friend who is psychic.

I'm not sure what to do about it. It's quite scary but I'm worried about telling people.

If I were you, I'd enhance them as much as possible.
Mabey if you enhance them more you'll get even more?

I don't know if this is good news or bad news but your abilities will naturally diminish once you finish puberty. So the question is more like "Do I want to work on this when it will naturally diminish?" That's really up to you. You can atrophy or you can grow. That's a personal choice. But if you can't decide, life will take care of that for you.
