Do You Ever Question You Abilities?


I want to embrace certain feelings, abilities and experiences but I can't help but feel like a skeptic, (even though I've felt things), is that something someone who has now developed their talent/ability experience? It's like I feel it inside of me, like it's ready to spread it's wings (figuratively speaking of course) wants to come out, and I get the sensation it will come out no matter what in a way. I can't talk to anyone about it, without them either blowing it off (sort of like I do) or getting the vibe they really do not believe me. Almost like I KNOW they don't believe me I feel it even though they seem interested in what I'm saying. It's like a lie. Others don't hide their disinterest or skepticism, which oddly is refreshing, their skepticism is honest, its a honest feeling. I guess because I feel exactly how their coming across.

I don't even know if that makes sense. As I read what I'm typing it makes sense but doesn't all at the same time. Another odd thing this seems to be the most I've expressed how I, It, feels, how other make me feel about it. I have another question for those of you who have read this post this far, what does energy feel like? How do I know if what I am feeling is anything? Is it energy or something else? I mean everyone has gut feelings right? But then again, I'm sure not everyone's finger tips get warm to the touch, huh?. Well. I better publish this before I change my mind, before I just stop trying. Any feed back is nice, or if anyone has a remote idea of what i'm trying to say or any answers to my questions, and there are more than I can express at this moment. But let's work on the few I've put there.

Learning to trust my instincts is a lot harder than I thought, but I know I can. I guess I'm afraid of being wrong. But then again if I don't put it out there ill never really know or at least try. Thank you all for the advice. It really is helping me feel a little more comfortable with what I may possess. I'm going to try something this weekend, guess you can call it an experiment ill post the outcome next week. Again, thanks!

Its normal to question things. Its normal to be skeptical. That is what the difference is between being wise and gullible. What is important, is that you are learning from your experiences. Learn to trust your instincts, and follow them. ❤

Jjuniorr, well the Spiritualist churches have healing services, and it sounds like you're a healer. So it's not ONLY about spirits. I still think you could benefit from seeking out people like you, and that type of gathering is very open and inviting and a very good place to start. ❤

You are holding in an ability that can make you a believer instead of a skeptic, let it out, we are all different and have many abilities, ones we choose to use or abuse, but most of the skeptic population do not have the abilities we do, let it out, it may make you at ease and teach you more. Energy is felt in many ways, what ever way you want to perceive it is the way you and your body will allow it to feel, mine is tingling and jolts. Good luck.

IF you're getting the warm feeling then you sense energy by touch. I sense energy by distance shiat. My spine tingles when an entity or a strong being's near me. Normal for us brother.

To vanillabean, you are correct I have not specified what exactly iIT is. I notice I don't seem to give it a name only IT. Lol... Well I have no name for it bc rather I do not know and it is not spiritual in a ghost kind of way but I feel if I give in completely it will open more door that I rather stay close guess I can say I am a bit afraid of what I can may be capable of. Okay to stop beating around the bush its... Strange and nothing SPECTACULAR like comunicating with someone whose past on, but When I'm in a certain mood, or state of mind you can say, and I touch someone I want to feel better or is achy or have a fever or lethargic I unconsciously find myself in a trance of some kind my fingers get warm and take on their tainted energy to make them feel better. But once I head home I feel the energy bubbling inside of me wanting To be let out but since I don't understand what I'm doing to begin with that causes the trance (it's like it just happens) I don't know how to deal with the energy and I end up getting physically sick. My most recent experience was the hardest because I got really sick and well the participant had an idea of what the outcome could be and what I may be able to do. Sorry it's really hard for me to explain I hope you all understand. Well again thanks, although some of the advice pertains to other kinds of experiences its helpful. Again thanks!

Hey jjuniorr. Glad if anything I said made sense to you. I wanted to respond to a couple of things you said, "It seems to give me more questions rather than answers". I had to laugh a bit because I think that's part of this spiritual journey. Now that I am very comfortable with my psychic and mediumship abilities, it seems like I have so many answers. But then EVEN WEIRDER things happen. It's a never-ending process of learning and growing. I am glad I am comfortable now instead of being fearful and confused and panicked, but at the same time my questions have multiplied and the issues are even deeper and more complex.

"I don't know where to begin to develop whatever it is that IT is." You have not been specific about your experiences, but if they involve spirits in any way, you can look at You should be able to locate a Spiritualist Church in California where you might be able to find someone to talk with. Even if you are not interested in mediumship... You are more likely to find people of a metaphysical belief system there whom you can relate to. I stumbled upon this church as I was looking for answers myself a few years ago. While I don't attend any kind of church now, I did make a significant circle of friends who definitely share these abilities with me. ❤

Anaelyssa your advice is great especially the third and last paragraph, thank you very very much. Much to think about and read. I guess like any thing else you want to perfect or develop it takes practice. Now to open up to the right participant. Again, thank you.

I always prefer to see both sides of an issue. Whenever I read something with a strong opinion, I find it useful to get a bit of an antidote by reading the opposite point of view. For example, someone may be talking to their spirit guide, or they might be delusional and deranged.

The adequacy of the rational mind to comprehend or perceive the absolute (God/Light/Life/Nothing) has been questioned throughout time. This the reason that meditation tries to stop the mind from thinking and interfering with the spiritual process.

Your question "How do I know if what I am feeling is anything?" can be interpreted as a very deep one. How do you know that the chair under you is real? Do you feel like you're sitting still? (You're not, because stuff inside you is moving, and your body is moving through space at huge speeds along with this planet). You only know the existence of the physical world through your five extremely limited senses, and it's said to be possible to feel something more with psychic senses. The validity of one's experience is ultimately a metaphysical question.

If you want to prove (at least to yourself) that your experiences are valid, it is recommended to keep a journal. For example, if you have precognitions, then write them down, and then check back later to see if they've come true. That has more validity (especially to yourself) than saying "oh something happened that I had a premonition about a week ago" only after it happens. This is one problem I have with people saying they predicted some disaster (9/11, Katrina) after the disaster already happens. It's all well and good, and they probably did have some sort of premonition about it (says the naive part that wants to believe everything), but the rational mind will cut it down real fast. Human memory is notoriously unreliable. The true rational mind needs you to collect enough proof that it will shut up and sit tight while you're having your experiences. Of course, it still needs to be taken out afterwards and used to dissect and examine the experiences.

I've had precious few experiences myself, so I've gotten into the habit of writing down anything I consider significant (mostly dreams, a few OBE, and any full tarot reading I do for myself). Recently, I was re-reading my journal and found an OBE experience that I had outright forgotten and only remembered when I read it.

As for energy, I think I tend to feel it like a tingling/humming in my hands, though it can be felt other places too. I have always doubted whether it was energy or just a peculiar sensation, but I think learning to control the sensation first and then figuring out what it is seems to be a good course of action. I've found that Astral Dynamics by Robert Bruce has some really nice exercises in this direction.

Thank you both vanillabean and AnneV, both your posts were insightful and appreciated. I guess since my most recent experiance was validated by another person and the experiance itself was the strongest it's ever been it's been a little diffcult to deal with as of lately. It seems to give me more questions rather than answers and I dont' know where to begin to develop whatever it is that IT is. I don't even know what IT is, if anything at all. Either way, thank you very much for your feedback.:) Every Little bit of information is helpful.

I don't think anything with regard to psychic feelings or experiences is cut and dry. I definitely go through my bouts of disbelief, eventhough by now none of my friends or family doubt me any longer. In fact, I am in a phase right now of skepticism of myself and every other psychic/medium that messages aren't coming to me because I am not open. So I think abilities can come in waves too.

I don't really like the word "gut feeling." This is just my personal experience... But gut feeling is the least accurate of any sense. I find that when I actually see a vision, hear a voice, smell a scent, those things have been 100% accurate for me. If you ask me questions and I go by my "feeling" it is frequently wrong. I reason that it's because I am not receiving information psychically and that whether we are aware of it or not, the mind IS interfering with Truth, and we are all naturally biased.

Discernment is a key word. You must learn how to tell when you are getting authentic information and when you are probably not. Skepticism and discernment are closely linked because it's hard to tell which one is operating.

Also, skepticism is healthy with any good psychic or medium. Without it, one loses humility and starts thinking they are God. I do not refer to my abilities as "powers." That sounds ridiculous. People who are power hungry and who "want to make their powers stronger" are people I stay away from. Nor is it a "gift." Like, who dares to call themselves "gifted", as though we aren't ALL gifted as human beings! I say "ability" because it's the humblest word I can think of. It's like any other skill--we can all develop it if we are open to it.

With humility comes another point--don't bother trying to prove yourself. That's your ego getting in the way. Let non-believers continue on their own path. Live by example, with humility, and others will take notice when they are ready. And there are PLENTY of people out there who are believers who are going to be accepting of your abilities and very open. It's a waste of time and energy to prove things to people. It's the #1 thing that seriously sucks energy out of me.

I don't know if anything I've said helps... But there it is anyway! 😉

Of course skepticism is healthy. If we didn't show discernment before a belief turned into a known, we'd live a life of suffering due to our gullibility.

This is a slow process and it totally depends on what is happening in your life. We are all born with different filters. This means, some people perceive more variations of energy than others do. This in turn results in them being less skeptical because they are constantly validated to the suspicion that there is more than what meets the eye. For example, if 90% of your dreams come true, you are going to start trusting them and come to the belief that you have psychic tendencies. If all you can perceive is a very vague feeling, then it's going to take you a lot longer to feel that this is valid and real and you certainly won't want to put yourself out there to be embarrassed. All natural and just feelings on your part.

We and everything around us is energy so it's hard to say "energy feels like this." I think what you're trying to say is, "What does energy feel like that is of a metaphysical or paranormal nature?" And the answer is probably just as elusive as it's as varied as life itself (in other words, it all depends on the energy itself).

Again, you won't know what your feeling is real until you get some serious validation. In one of my own posts, I was saying how I stayed at the Manresa Castle in Port Townsend. As I was standing at the window, I felt myself falling through the window to my death. I even felt pushed. So later, I was in the pub asking about history and if there was any, and they said long ago a woman jumped from the second story window to her death. There were rumors that her fiance pushed her. So is this real or not? Maybe, maybe not, but unlike you, I have a thousand other things of that nature happen that are also verifiable so I can then move from 'belief' to 'known'. In time you will to, if that's what you wish.

Thanks for sharing.
