If you've grown up using your skills without realizing they were skills, as you've aged you've learned how to mute the volume. I grew up thinking everyone knew a lot by touching an object. You know how if you pick up your grandfather's smoking pipe, you might start to fondly remember his warm smile or his deep throaty laugh or how he liked to slap you on the back when finished a sentence? That's what it's like for a psychic who specializes in psychometry. We touch an object and we have "memories" that play out in our heads from emotions to visuals, from family and friend ties to incidents.
If you send a bloodhound out into the woods, he will smell a badger, pine needles, wet soil, wildflowers and animal excrement. But, he's out there to hone in on one scent his trainer wants him to follow. To hone in on a psychic read, it's much the same. Lots of images, feelings, glimmers of moments in time pass by you and your mind gets very active but your focus has to slow down and grasp the right stream of information. When you lock in on it, it feels "right" and as if it's "fact."
Today, I spent a bit of time honing in on the Long Island Killer. I have a tendency to be more interested in the serial folks. I even had the killers for DC shooters pegged which I think shocked some people when I said it was a middle-aged black man and a younger black man. It feels like "fact" and something that is already part of history. That sense you get in your body and mind uniting to say "this is it!" is the AHA! of psychic reads.
I did put my notes onto an official site where it is dated. I won't share too much about them because I think it makes me vulnerable if I'm exposing something that will make someone nervous. Suffice to say, Long Island wasn't a dumping ground for convenience. It was a statement putting these women there.
In my upcoming book "From Fledgling to Full-Fledged Psychic," I hope to take the skills you already have (even if you don't realize it) and help you develop the muscles. Each of us have a propensity towards one type of psychic skills with others being lesser forms that support the main one. I am very excited to be able to help people realize senses they use and didn't even realize how they worked or where they're stored in their brains.
So, what's it like to be a psychic? It's no big deal. No psychic can say until after the fact if they followed the right path when doing a reading. I don't ever consider it a real science. I also don't ever for any reason, even with the people closest to me in life, open up to their minds unless they ask me to. I think that life is more exciting when you're left in the dark. I hone my skills as a human being when I have to adapt to new realities.
How do I touch objects every day without going nuts with the info? I don't open to the info. I don't stop and focus on it. I just simply touch something and focus on what its purpose is and not on who has touched it before. However, in a haunted location, I open up to the history. It's rather liberating those moments when you can just let it in. It's like it's been behind a dam for a long time and there's finally a release.
So, that's kind of what it's like to be a psychic, at least, my kind of psychic? I can't account for all of us. We're all as different as you are from your neighbor. For me, it's just another parallel dimension that has no definition but butts right into my dimension in waking state and sleep.
