How old were you and how did you discover them? How long did it take you to gain control over them?

I saw auras as a small child, probably 3-4 years old. I called them "shadow of sun" and I remember them being bright and colourful. But when I told my parents they were alarmed and took me to doctor. That's when I suppressed my ability and never saw them again.
However, I still sense vibrations of people intuitively and can assess someone when I see them the first time.

I saw ghosts, elementals & shadow people when I was 7. I don't see them as much these days; I mostly feel them, and then can see them if I focus on their energy.

I've seen and felt stuff for as long as I can remember. I really became conscious of my abilities when I was around 11 or 12. I had some control by the time I was 15.

I'm quite a clairvoyant person; I'm fairly sensitive to people's energies. I can't see them, hear them, etc., but I can feel them, mentally and physically. I don't have to see the person to feel their energy. I just know. I've always had this sense of knowing things about people. I can look into someone's eyes and get a general feel about what their life is like, and most of the time, it's right. I know what people are thinking a lot of the time; mind reading in a sense. However, when I focus really hard, I can imagine people's auras. It's not always accurate because my imagination is a bit unstable, but it's alright.

My earliest recall is around 2-4, and we moved to a new house with woods in back. I picked raspberries to eat, and left the bitter gooseberries. My little voice told me not to eat the little apple from what I called an "umbrella" plant. Mayapple, aka American mandrake. Dad had taken us around and showed us kids what we could eat, and to not eat the nightshade berries. He only covered berry plants though.

Anyhow, I saw a neighbor's ghost. I told my folks the lady next door came to my room over night to say good bye. After I left the room I heard my folks talking about the neighbor having died during the night. My folks never brought it up.

I always saw auras, around everything living and just assumed everybody did. I never mentioned it until at 12, I saw our science teacher's aura with freaky red flares. I told the girl next to me that his lights were all funny. She didn't know what I was talking about. The teacher was taken to emergency for a bleeding ulcer later in the day. But the classmate's reaction led me to look up things at the library and that's the first time I heard of psychic abilities.

Control the ability? It's just another sense, it's with me 24/7. How do you control ears and eyes and smell? I enhance it by tuning in to it, like turning my head so my ears catch the sound better, I go within to get the thread, the vibe.

The question is how to survive unpleasant visions and what to do with the info? And learning to pay attention to warnings. I learned not to go to the mall on Black Friday. Ha ha. Shielding is a temporary fix. It wasn't until my 20's that I learned to distance myself from incoming info and let it pass by as an observer. Resistance only brings crises and the energy builds up pressure until it bursts. and that hurts needlessly. It still catches me by surprise. Like when a squirrel spoke to me, I was stunned. Say wha'?

When I was in college with some dorm friends we practiced telepathy, rotating who would be sender and the rest receivers. And I did remote viewing using local map coordinates, and visiting a location afterwards to verify accuracy.

I've been Claircognizant ever since before I can remember. The same with my precognitive dreams. I didn't have a name to call it until I came to the craft but they have both always been there.

My mother knew about my abilities before I did.

When I was a little girl, I lived with my mother and grandmother. My grandmother was sick and stayed with us throughout my short childhood. My mother tells me that I would say things that I couldn't have any knowledge about, about my great-great-grandmother. She passed before I was born. One of these times I was talking to my mother and said something like "Do you remember when I made the cream of wheat with gold sugar for you", which was something my great-great-grandmother made for my mom when she was a little girl. This one stood out the most because this happened roughly 15 years or so before I was born and my mother had all but forgotten about it until I said it.


To this day she's convinced that I am her grandma reincarnated.

You've just described a soul gaze from The Dresden Files. Jim Butcher is one of my favorite authors. I really think credit should be given to him for his work.

As long as I can remember I've always been able to feel when spirits are nearby, and I've always been able to pick up on when someone is feeling upset or sad. When my fiancée has panic attacks I take his hands in mine and imagine a comforting light coming from me into him and he calms down, also works with people I've just met. Other people's pets also are very calm around me and I can calm down a animal when it is nervous or scared. I've had dreams that were mundane, day to day type that come true and if I'm on the phone with someone and I concentrate I can see what's around them, articles of clothing or stuff like that. I'm still learning to get control over my abilities however.

I've known I can feel people's emotions ever since I was a little child. I always knew I can make people feel better and I kept doing it for everyone knowing that it drains me.
The other abilities came with the puberty and once I started meditating and opening myself to these things,I started experiencing a lot more but I'm not sure what they are yet.

BW - Do you know if you can recharge while giving comfort and not be drained?

I knew something was up when I was a kid, but I didn't know exactly what. Over time, I also suppressed my abilities based on people reactions to what I told them. I've always been clairvoyant and clairaudient. It wasn't until recently when I discovered that these were real abilities, and I wasn't crazy after all, and I shouldn't try to suppressed them they started to come back.

I first realized I was a little bit different when I was in highschool. Whenever I wanted something good to happen to someone, I mean really wanted it, it did happen. And it wasn't like once or twice, but actually quite often. It never works if I want something for me, only of I want something for another person and it's not always working. Still, it happened often enough for me to notice. And it does never work if I wish for something bad. Like giving people pox or something :D (yeah, it has happened - I'm just a person who back in the day was just a teenager :D )

Later in life, when I was about 30, I found out I can hear people lying. It's not a very good thing from my point of view, I sometimes really hate it. But it has helped me a lot.
