OP, I was very skeptical until a certain point in my life, when circumstances forced me to open my mind. Over the years I came to realize that most of
what we experience about ourselves is based on what we believe about ourselves, and there are a lot of limits there. Most of them, we can actually
reduce or release though, since they are our own limits.
At a quantum level (though I dislike using that word) reality is fundamentally and functionally based on non-local rapport so at that level there's
probably no such thing as anybody or anything that isn't part of that.
At a personality level however, people vary in psi talent as much as they do in musical or sports talent. I've been fairly involved in this topic for
a couple decades now, including with masses of people attempting to 'train' (themselves or via others) to use psychic functioning, so this is more
than just my musing. Some people are gifted walking in and this seems to run in families like other talents do. Some people are going to be as
oblivious as the tone-deaf and that is just the way it is. This is likely not a biological limitation (though it could be I suppose) -- there are so
many other factors that can be involved. And of course there is a huge spectrum in between.
Allowance of what-we'll-call-psi-for-lack-of-a-better-word seems dominantly psychological, that is to say, something (who knows what, that ephemeral
'energy' perhaps) renders through the body's nervous system, which is physical, but then it has to be "allowed perception" which is all psychology,
and then it has to be "translated" into something sensible which is a blend of physiology and psychology (especially as this can be filtered,
augmented or distorted at that point), and then it has to be "communicated" in some fashion, which again goes back to (mostly) psychology. Regardless
of the sports-like talent for it, if the psyche does not support it, this is just not going to happen -- or if it does, it's likely going to be in
some negative context in the psyche's reaction, instead.
People often come to "greater intuitive awareness" as they get older and in fact I suspect there is a certain "capacity" in people that does not
actually develop until one is aging (some ancient mystical practices actually excluded anybody who wasn't yet 40 for example) -- or at least, does so
gradually. But much of this change is simply because as people age, they often either get more repressed or less, depending on the person. You may
have known for example, two older people, one of whom may have become more superstitious, more judgmental as they aged, and another who may have
become more open and even a bit bohemian as they clearly just didn't give a rat's derriere what people thought of them anymore.
For those who seem to relax and expand as time moves on, and who let go of elements that often brought them "inhibition" (and even fear and other
paradigms) when younger, many of the things in the way in their psyche simply go away, and some of the natural river of talent they always had starts
to become more clear. So it's very common for psi and precognitive dreams, visions, intuitive knowings, and intuition across the board to increase in
one's life when they are older. Not unusual at all.
Thinking of it as if it is some separate 'thing' or rare is probably not conducive to more of it, though. Understanding that it's just a natural part
of basically everyone - 'to varying degrees of manifestation' just like our ability to play piano or basketball or do math might be - gives it a nicer
framework, I think.
