So, just to get this straight in my head - you guys are saying that your personal abilities must be kept to yourselves and your own chosen 'recipients'. That you deliberately won't enlighten / educate the rest of the world, despite the fact that if these powers could be revealed / unleashed by all those who probably have them BUT who do not ever come to realise it BECAUSE you won't allow your claimed powers to be proven, tested, demonstrated, studied (and then passed on and developed by education). Surely then they could be utilised by humanity to make a much better world..
But no, you guys don't want that.
Yep, that's the ticket - I think I get it now...
I'm sorta glad I don't have the powers - I don't really want to have that attitude.
With "the powers" come consequences which very early in life determine ones attitude to them and how much one discloses. I have had the police called in, had many people run away from me and the only way i kept my best mate as a young teenager was to lie and say that i was cheating when i first read his mind to see what card he was turning over, and then began to predict the sequence of card s before he turned them over. I went through almost a whole pack without one error. It even scared me. i was about 12 or13 and that was one of the first times i realised i was a bit different AND that such differnces scared people .
I also had a work colleague very upset when I asked her in the staff room, how her preganacy was going and it was so new she hadn't told anyone except her parents.
ANother colloeague luckily saw the funny side of it when i asked her why she was wearing a blokes boxer pants to bed at night because i had obed and accidentally observed her. I have had a young woman I was trying to impess in bar run away when i ran through her keys and told her what sort of door each one opened and what it was used for Eg an old wooden green door with peeling paint on a garden shed.
What freaked her out ultimately was when I said. "I am sorry i cant tell you what this ones for, because you dont know." She realised i was extracting the information about the keys form her head and took off in a flash.
I can list dozens of instances, the most common being finding objects that have been lost or stolen, as long as the person who lost them or stole them is close to me. Ive done online tests for clair audience with almost 100% accuracy and even helped a Um member with a stolen object. I dont think it was ever recovered, but she did find out who stole it.
But it is rare for me to be able to succeed at a distance. Knolwledge comes if it is going to instanlty and i just know where something is and tell the person wher to find it. A mate lost his USB with school reports on it, but i had to tell him it was at the bottom of the ocean, and irrecoverable. THEN he remembered having it with him when he went out on a state emergency boat while they were doing a rescue call out, the last time he saw it. ANd lots of times i get nothing at all and jus thave to say, "sorry i cant help you "
Even people i help find valuable lost objects are very wary (except kids and teenagers. They seem to take it as normal)
