If you’ve had unexplainable psychic experiences, and you are shy about telling anyone because the things you’ve experienced just don’t make sense, you are not alone.
There are many rules in our culture that say you should always make sense and prove that what you are experiencing is real to others, and in order for it to actually be real, others around you must agree that it is.
The rules go on to assure you that if you are the only one experiencing this, you have something wrong with you. It’s not validating for you to have experiences that others judge as being the wrong experiences, simply because they don’t have them, or are frightened of them. So you keep quiet about what you see, hear, know, or notice, rather than risk having ridicule and fear come your way.
The problem with this tactic is that when you don’t validate your own experiences, they lose their power for you. If you dismiss the information you receive intuitively because it doesn’t make sense, or worse – if you try to explain it, you will lose your ability to receive your own wisdom this way.
It’s really funny, actually, that the tools humans already possess that can help us to create brilliant works of art, solve intricate problems, and create new ways of doing things, are the very tools that many dismiss as being ‘unreal’ because they can’t be proved beyond a shadow of a scientific doubt. These tools include intuition, clairvoyance, knowing, and feeling energy, which are all built in and a natural part of being a human being.
Since you were small, you were rewarded for doing things that made sense to the grown-ups who were in charge, so that you could fit in and be safe. You were given kudos for matching to the group, and for doing what was expected, for carefully following the rules. If you wanted to be thought of as good, you would behave according to the local rules for being considered good. Your own knowing, your own unique information, was not necessarily asked for or required.
People are often afraid of what they can’t understand, and even more afraid of being ostracized by the group. So they squash a natural tendency to be aware of energy and their own psychic abilities in order to not be rejected. This fear of rejection has many people not living in their truth, but trying to become what is expected, with the mistaken notion that if they only do this well enough, success and acceptance will follow.
It’s a different world in the 21st century. If you are trying to be all that you can be, it isn’t up to anyone else who you become. It’s up to you. If you are trying to fit into a mold or successfully follow a pattern, you’re missing out on discovering the treasure that only you can discover, yourself.
