I ask this with the precursory statement that if any of the phenomena I experience are real, they're most likely a gift from God, or a natural born
human skill - thus of God as well.
Otherwise, they're of the Enemy, or just something that is a natural part of being human that is rarely used/known.
If I have some sort of ability, I have to decide where it comes from - as I have a slight case of OCD that sometimes makes me obsess on things such as
whether I have the mark of the beast or not (which I do not, and OCD is characterized by the brain conflicting on things it already knows the status
of), and so I need to decide whether to keep developing/using it or not.
I'm one of those people who as a kid was fascinated enough by crazy anime shows that I did research into ki/psi. Back in middleschool I was making
"psi balls," but I think that they are quite possibly nothing more than muscle tightness, and the ideomotor effect. I'm still not sure, and am
fascinated by psi, the idea of flaring psi balls if it's possible to make one in the first place, levitation, and telekinesis. I've had
unconfirmable successes in the past with psi wheels, though I'm not so sure about those. I really don't think there's much of a physical aspect to
psionic phenomenon, at least from my experiences so far.
I think this one to be the Spiritual Gift of Discernment as mentioned in the Bible - I think it comes from when I first became a believer in Jesus.
I've almost always been able to read what people's true thoughts behind something are... I can tell whether they are sincere or not, and I generally
am just inside people's heads sometimes. It's strange and hard to describe.
From there, I can look at situations and objects and somehow my brain either generates, composites, or just "knows" how they got to the point they
are at, I see the big picture. I know this one is hard to aptly describe, but I've done my best.
I've also participated in remote viewing experiments here on ATS. One in particular was pretty interesting:
My RV'ed guesses:
I'm also really good at finding things from time to time. One example that strikes me well is when I was driving down the road past a comics and toy
store and something in my head "pinged," and I knew they had a certain toy line I collected that was pretty rare to see except on eBay. They don't
advertise, I hadn't talked to anyone about it, and I very rarely go in there. Anyway, I went in and walked out between that day and the next with
hundreds (way more than I should have
) worth of the toy line I collected.
I also sometimes recreationally dumpster dive, because of the thrill of getting free stuff (I'm a computer nerd, so I end up hacking electronics, and
playing with junk computers), but I sometimes skip certain dumpsters because I just know nothing good is in them. I've confirmed this by doubling
back after the OCD to check them kicks in - and then sometimes I get thoughts about where to go look, which are spotty, but accurate from time to
Finally, I have strange dreams, and I will transition into my dreams from what I describe as my own little worlds...I am not sure if I'm out of body,
or am remote viewing, or what, though I sometimes try to RV while laying in bed...I also have strange dreams that are either exhilerating enough to
make me go back to sleep because life is less interesting, or dreams that are so terrifying and real that I fear going to sleep the next night, even
after forgetting the details of the nightmares...
Whatever the case, I still get that magnetic feeling in my hands from time to time and start "playing with psi," if that's even possible.
I'm totally skeptical on lots of this, minus the Spiritual Discernment. You can't pry me from my faith or shake it, so don't even try - but tell
me, what's going on with me?
If I have something here that isn't evil, I should develop it. The question is, how?
