Question from a reader:
What you’re describing is a combination of psychic abilities including clairaudience, claircognizance, clairvoyance and mediumship. And it’s perfectly normal for these types of things to occur sporadically, especially when you’re in development.
“I’ve been told I’m gifted, I’m a natural healer, which I’m accepting, but I’m confused. I can see in the back of my head a person crossed over or Angel or Ancient. The faces are never clear, but they will give me information to pass onto someone relevant. It’s usually short and quick. So far it’s been correct every time, but I don’t know what this is or why it randomly occurs with me. I’m never shown my own guides even when constantly asking. Is this telepathy? I also tend to know stuff without knowing why and or how, etc., but it’s always correct. I keep getting told I’m gifted. I’m always self doubting as it’s intermittent and comes from out of the blue. I want to open up further but it’s all over the place.”
Any communication by thought is technically telepathy, so you could categorize any and all spirit communication as telepathy since that how it all occurs. But we tend to label that as channeling, instead, and refer to telepathy as something that happens between two living beings.
I’ve written a gazillion posts on psychic development that you can browse through on my blog describing ways to recognize intuition, develop it, etc. My greatest piece of advice here is to just allow it to happen naturally when and where it wants to instead of attempting to force it. Eventually, you’ll get into a groove and it will come when you need it to, instead of completely sporadically.
You should also learn to recognize patterns in how and when it’s occurring. My guess is that it happens frequently when you’re in states of consciousness that are more so on autopilot than when you’re highly alert.
You can read more about that in this blog post.
