I came here because I don't know where else to look, I'm looking for a guide on how one can develop their psychic abilities, I've always had a latent talent for predicting things, maybe I'm just a good guesser, but too many coincidences add up, I'm also ironically a very unlucky guy so I always felt like I was cursed
I'm hoping I may have some kind of latent talent for these things
Now this is where I'm going to sound stupid (if I haven't already)
I'm looking for legit stuff, if you search around online all you ever see are "woo woo" practitioners selling some peace love hippie kind of "psychic experience" guide, no actual development of ones abilities
I'm talking about stuff like being able to move small objects with your mind, accurate prediction capabilities (which I can say I already have but its limited, else I'd have one the lottery)
Sometimes it feels like the "universe" is feeding information to me in some cases, one time I arrived at a new work place and accurately down to the exact year guessed the ages of all the women at my work place and they were all weirded out afterwards, myself included, because I didn't understand how I kept guessing correctly, a number would just pop into my head and I'd just know it was right and say that number
The thing is its not "controllable" sometimes its "on" sometimes its "off"
A forum full of individuals exploring the mystical world is probably the only place where I'll find someone who is also pursuing "true knowledge" or may already have access to it and is training themselves
Also if you know of any other forums, please let me know, this may not be the place where the knowledge I seek lies, but it may be the place that guides me towards it
I've not been able to control predictive abilities. Like you said, sometimes it's on, sometimes it's off. Thought about making a career of hanging out near a roulette wheel at a casino, just waiting for it to be on, but it sounds dreadfully boring.
Moving objects... I believe I moved an object once, but it was during something similar to a panic attack. I'd hardly call it reproducible or controlled. My impression though was that an extreme state of mind was instrumental.
There is the idea of micro-telekinesis, which seems easier (for some reason). In that field, the idea is to influence the outcome of a highly randomized event, like coin tosses or dice rolls. It might provide an in-road to some form of honing practice on moving things.
I also had a theory on attempting to move things by utilizing a sort of astral projection, but i never got any results from it.
I've only ever seen significant results with certain siddhis, which really are more side effects of path progress, rather than goals in and of themselves.
