When people test me to see if I can read their thoughts most of the time I can get it right or at least come close. Sometimes I correctly guess the category and other details as I finally name the thought of object. Sometimes I say song lyrics that are about what the person is thinking of. So I get it correct but then what? I proved my abilities but ultimately what good comes of it? This is my great struggled. I'd like to use my gift for personal gain or to help people but all I end up doing is these parlor tricks.
What's more is I don't know if this happens to every psychic but there is a cost for me using my gift. Later that night or sometimes days later I start replaying the scenario over and over again in my head. Sometimes for multiple hours. Have you ever had the same though constantly for multiple hours? It causes me to lose sleep, get a headache and feel feverish and bad. I know meditation is probably the key to overcoming these negative side effects so it is just something I will have to continue to work on as I travel my psychic journey.
