Stress and Anxiety in Psychic People


There is a lot to like about being psychic. The deep connection to nature, the ability to feel great joy and to appreciate great art, the ability to be spontaneous and creative and of course, to experience mysticism to a degree unavailable to anyone else.

I wouldn’t have it any other way. I like who I am. But that doesn’t mean that I am ignorant and unaware of the sometimes nearly unbearable stress that this sensitivity brings with it. It takes its toll even on people like Sylvia Browne, who have been exposing themselves to the public eye for many years. She’s had her troubles, believe me.

Every psychic person that I’ve known has experienced some difficulty in dealing with life; and most have experienced a lot. What is probably the most damaging is that we are prone to feeling terrible guilt, often over relatively minor things. There is a tendency to take care of other people first and neglect ourselves and this is often so strong as to be paralyzing. I can remember having a tough time learning to win because I didn’t want anyone to lose; I would feel their pain with them. The problem with that of course is that I also wanted very much to win.

I liked winning and this was in direct conflict with an overwhelming desire to protect others from losing. While this may seem rather idiotic to outsiders, it is very serious business to the strongly empathetic person. That, in and of itself, is a great source of stress. To get what we want often means that other people are losing out. Many psychic people turn into people pleasers, obsessed with making other people happy or at the very least not having them be angry. In fact, I would put dealing poorly with anger on the top of the psychic’s list.

This leaves these psychic people feeling powerless because it is impossible to effectively negotiate from this position. If the other person is angry and especially selfish, the psychic person will find themselves giving in to conditions they did not want. Feeling powerless is such a great source of stress that many people get physically sick from this.

For the record, meditating on the white light of protection or similar devices will do you no good here. It’s ineffective for reasons I won’t go into here. Basically, you have to learn how to stand up for yourself.

As children, we are told to toughen up, often by people who have no idea how difficult that is for us. Just for comparison’s sake, I consider myself to have finally toughened up to my satisfaction in the past three years or so. I’m 49.

A certain amount of stress seems to be normal in psychic people. I have never known anyone who was really psychic who could stay calm for an extended period of time while they were getting on with life. We only seem to be calm when we’re either in nature and away from the stresses of life, or smack in the middle of life threatening emergencies.

Yeah, that one. If ever my life is in danger I want to be surrounded by psychic people if for no other reason than to watch all the crazy shit they can pull off when it counts. Lifting heavy objects, holding back raging fires, mind control and God knows what else. I’m no different, I’ve been through a few earthquakes here in California and the more serious they are, the calmer and more focused I get. Although one time I was in the backyard during a five point something and I watched my wife panic and start to run in circles. I stopped being calm and started laughing.

I think it’s only fair to wrap this up by giving out some help. After all, I’ve worked out some of this stuff. So what did I learn? That caving in was a bad idea for everyone. If I didn’t stand up for myself I was not only hurting myself, but the other person as well. It made me into an enabler, encouraging bad behavior. Selfish people need a figurative punch in the nose occasionally. Then they back down.

That I can be both kind and firm at the same time. It was never going to work for me to be tough and mean. I could never do that.

Oh yeah, one more thing. To feel good about yourself you have to fess up to being psychic. Not to everyone you meet, but at least to the people you know. You have to get used to being who you really are and making people take it. It’s hard to feel freedom from the inside of a closet.

And finally, I must constantly find my fears and face them; never stopping this process, never slowing down. Doing this gradually makes it easier to sleep at night. (Yes, I have trouble sleeping just like the rest of you.) And a funny thing has happened. I have a different energy around me that people sense; Selfish people back down before I even get started. People look up to me and want me to take charge; I get respect. That never happened when I was younger and it’s a nice feeling.

It’s reflected in the topics I’m choosing here. I can go into the dark spaces that we share and shine the light. I hope this helps.

    I am a long time meditator (40 yrs) and began to notice psychic gifts arising about 15 years ago, perhaps as a result of my practice….the gift of being able to heal others through touch or prayer, being able to read others and a gift I found quite scary – mediumship. I learned Reiki and Qigong which helped me to organize my healing ablities…..but the mediumship part scared me so much I prayed for it to go away….and it did. I am a chaplain in a large hospital….I don’t mention or use these gifts there……but I was called to pray with a family with a brain dead child one night and I found myself cornered by their expectations that I could “heal” the little girl ( 4 years old). I did not want to go there….or create false hope. But the family was in such pain…..so I tried. I went into a deep meditative state and made connection with the child. She was very much alive. Her face was full of energy, her pulse was strong and regular….but I was afraid to go any further into her energy field……finally I just let go of my fear….and dropped deeper. I called out to her (mentally). Christy….Christy…..and then I heard a scared child’s voice…..I want Mommy…..I want my Mommy.

    Then…..I called for her to come back

    But there was only silence

    Then I felt the energy withdrawal from her face…..and I removed my hands.

    I sat for awhile trying to ground myself.

    I felt a tremendous sense of failure…..and overwhelmed by the anxiety of the child

    When I opened my eyes….I realized that everyone in the room was crying.

    It took a few minutes…..but then I realized that it was important that I tried…..and failed in such a public way. The family, who were deeply religious….could now let go.

    The next morning I came back and the hospital room was vacant.

    You made me think of another experience – not an emergency, but just kind of illustrative. Many years ago I used to do readings in a psychic tea room. It was lovely to be surrounded by so many like minded (and like abled) people, without being considered “strange”. And YES, I agree…it’s so important to come out of the broom closet, lol, and admit to being psychic. We have to become more openly recognized as just people with an enhanced ability or sensitivity.

    Anyway we had a big party one time, a special party, where a lot of customers and “normal” people came to the tea room. I will never forget how during the course of the evening, ALL of the psychics eventually ended up in one room of the complex, kind of huddling together (so to speak) while the non-psychics wandered through the rest of the space eating the appetizers. They say herding psychics is like herding cats, but we definitely formed a herd that night! I think we need to find each other more – there is safety in numbers!

    What a great blog you have! I’m a professional psychic medium and can say I experience much of what you discuss, here and in your other posts. Ordinary life can be very difficult and stressful – the things others take for granted – but I am amazing in “emergencies”. Once, about 15 years ago, I was in a plane going home from Carolina to Boston. I sat over the wing and KNEW that the engine was going to go out (before the plane took off). I wasn’t alarmed, I just knew this. Sure enough, about half an hour into the flight the engine did go out and we were flying over the ocean. Well…we had an emergency landing at an airforce base in Delaware. What I found out then was that the OTHER engine was going out too so we were very close to crashing. Now I am usually a highly anxious person, and was very calm and completely unphased by the experience. Afterwards when the Captain came along and apologized to each of us for the flight problem, I told him that it was fine, I enjoyed the experience and found it most interesting. He looked at me like I was insane. Which to him I guess I was. But I know that life is eternal, and when it’s your time you go, and when it’s not, you don’t. it’s the ordinary stuff that gets me down. Like driving. I hate driving with a passion as it’s hard for me to concentrate and everyone seems so aggressive. Most psychics I’ve known seem to have trouble with driving.

    Thank you for creating this wonderful blog!!!

    I’ve experienced this and more so in the last year. As I allowed myself to be hurt over and over. Knowing and feeling without a doubt that things are not right. But as a people pleaser, I bottle up the emotions and even endure further mental and emotional abuse until I literally have had enough. So bad that I blow up and obsess to the point where I almost harass the person that has hurt me. Then to forgive…. And to start the cycle all over again.

    Sometimes I feel it’s a curse. “Intuition” is so heightened that it literally is beyond my control. And the anxiety pulls me out of my rational mind. I wish there was a way to control it.

      You can change from being a people pleaser, but it does take time. You have to learn to deal with confrontation and be honest with people.

      I sometimes have to remind myself that I can’t take care of other people until I take care of myself. That helps.

      It’s the strong emotions that pull you out of your rational mind. When you feel that happen, just wait. Really, don’t say or do anything for a minute or so and if something is getting you totally keyed up and you’re still worked up, remember to not make any decisions or shoot off your mouth until you calm down.

      High emotions affect decision making. It’s OK to have the high emotions of course, but don’t act on them. That’ll help a lot.

        Does this gift/intuition/curse have an “off” switch?

        • craigweiler
          November 23, 2013

          No, it most certainly does not. Being psychic is physiological, as well as mental/emotional. The body is literally wired to be extremely sensitive.

          My theory is that this is a biological adaptation that is one of many personalities that are found in hunter/gatherer tribes. You are supposed to fill a very specific role, which no longer exists.

          But speaking from experience,-and this will sound very familiar-, . . . . . . . . it gets better.

          You will learn to understand yourself and make the necessary adjustments to live in this world while taking advantage of your talents, which are undoubtedly numerous.

          If I have one piece of advice, it’s that you should learn to be really good at something that is not psychic ability so that anyone (including yourself) can see how talented you are without the controversy.

            Thank you. Your responses are helping.

            My “feeling” have intensified in the last 2 or 3 years. Especially after moving to a more suburban/rural area. Energy just leads to anxiety. An I’m just so overcome by it.

            I see that I need to find ways to either understand or control it.

          I think alcohol dims it or grounds you somewhat. Which is why many Alcoholics are also quite sensitive people. I certainly started having a beer a day to just ground me a litttel in times when hypersensitivity was a burden. But a switch as such? A very psychic woman said to me many years ago I must learn to ignore stuff. Like running TV, that sort of thing. She did not tell me how.

    I am not sure where to ask this question. I apologize if I have found the wrong category. Right now I extremely stressed out and depressed. My precious 2 year old cat ran out the front door. He always came back after 30 minutes. He is neutered. I knew from my abilities that he was still alive but that was all I was getting. Most psychics can help everyone else but when it comes to their own lives it is a mess. I have a 15 month old baby and lazy husband, my house is chaotic. I myself have met with a professional psychic who is wonderful. She often tells me I am wasting my talent and I should be attending classes and volunteer for the police.
    There are many so called professionals who are not. I was so frustrated with not knowing where the cat was that I called a woman in the Washington DC area. The reason I used her is because she would work with me on a Sunday and she would take a check by phone.
    I told my husband the cat got into an old apartment building under construction. I had that hunch. She confirmed this but was extremely vague about many details and many of her details were wrong. She kept trying to change the subject to me that the stress in my life drove the cat to run. She kept talking so that I would have to pay her. If I wanted a professional counselor I would have not called her.
    While to many people this is just another cat in a city of 2 million people, to me he is like a child. He has a microchip so if someone brought him to an animal shelter or vet they would contact me. He has a medical condition where if he gets sick he will die.
    The pet communicator I spoke with refused to assist me again, when I emailed her. I was terribly sick with bronchitis. Her story changed over and over. I do not want to put her web page on here for fear that she will find out and threaten me. Perhaps because I did not mention money and that is why she refused to help again. She had no empathy whatsoever unless she was getting money.
    Fast forward a month. The owner of the building finally let me walk around with my husband. He refused to contact tenants and have them open their doors to see if the cat is there. He claims he called and texted every tenant. He is lying like a rug. I have had visions of a woman with frizzy hair and a long skirt with my cat. The landlord is telling me that this is his girlfriend. He is argumentative, obnoxious, and sneaky. It looks like there is a ton of illegal stuff in this old building which I do not care about. I feel extremely guilty that I did not go over to the apartment building before calling the pet psychic.I feel guilty for calling this creepy woman who in my opinion does not even like cats. She does have abilities but I felt she took advantage of me.
    While I am extremely intuitive I cannot get a response from an animal. For some reason I only get contacted by female spirits.Does anyone have any advice for me? I cannot sleep at night over this. I am trying to look for a job and am so distracted by this I cannot concentrate.Should I contact another pet psychic? Should I contact my own who is booked for months at a time? Any help or feedback is very much appreciated.

    Since December I have started having extreme panic attacks upon waking. I began taking medication, which does not work. I noticed a couple months ago that these attacks are a prerequisite to an unnerving event that follows. Sometimes it is a few days and at most a week. I used to have warning dreams but I rarely have them anymore. It seems I have these attacks instead. They are so agonizing though. I am new to this psychic life. My family has many psychic gifts that I was unaware of, being raised in foster care away from them. I do not see spirits and can not tell the future but recently after being around them, I have noticed that I can ‘feel’ when something is beside me. In fact, it seems that I’m noticing things I never even believed in before. But all of this hitting me like this is very hard on me and I don’t know how to handle it. That is why I started my blog, to see if others have any problems like me. That is actually how I came across this one.

      Hi Trina,

      I am going through the same “awakening” and it is a scary thing at first, but try to realize that it is a gift once you learn how to harness it. Right now I am digesting all the material I can find on opening my mind through meditation and yoga. One thing I have noticed is that no two people share the same exact gift. I am beginning to see that my gift is more in the “afterlife.” I can communicate with the recently departed, because my visions seem to be someone’s that I am only viewing. I heard on the news that another sensitive had found the body of a young child because she had a vision. I had a vision too, but it was from the eyes of the child and I knew he had passed while he was still just missing and I knew who did it and what he looked like. The other psychics vision was different. Yes it is hard to see things like this, and it hurts because we are sensitives after all and we feel their emotions. There must be a reason we have these gifts and we should try not to fear them, but embrace and educate ourselves so that maybe we can help others in some way. I was raised a staunch Catholic and parapsychology was the devils gift, so I know all too well your apprehension and fear. One thing I’ve noticed is that holistic approaches are the best tools to curtail anxiety and expand your mind. Hope this helps :)

      I feel the exact same way. I used to have dreams and visions and within 48 hours it happens. It is really exhausting to determine if I will have another one and if so it is almost impossible for me to determine what I am feeling. I am just a 15 year old male teen that was told I have the special gift to talk to the dead. Another medium actually told me about the gift I have while I was there to hear from my grandpa. There are some dreams that have not came true or happened yet and he confirmed that they are real and once someone leaves the physical world they can see the entire future laid out on paper.

    Wow, I was watching the Ricky Lake show and she had a few psychics on her show and one of the psychics mentioned anxiety.

    I have just reached my 40′s and my father has just passed. This is when I realized or awoke to the undeniable fact that I’m a “sensitive.” My mother, grandmother (paternal,) son, sister and nephew all shared/share the same gift and we all suffer or suffered from anxiety. I started crying while reading this, I feel like you just explained my entire life and struggles. I’m so glad to have found others, maybe I can now see my anxiety in a different shade.

    And for all those who suffer from this anxiety, you can take control, educate yourself and do not double guess your intuition. We can tell the difference between our sensitive natures and our intuitive thoughts; one only needs to pay attention and you will notice the difference.

    I’ve been to hospitals for my heart because of palpitations and I’ve been diagnosed with hypercardia and PVC’s, but my heart is in perfect health. The are ways to cure this with medication, but there are severe health risks. I always try the holistic approaches first like yoga and meditation, both very easy to start. At this time in life i am dealing with people and situations which cause me increased anxiety. So sometimes I need the medication, because of my over sensitive nature and trauma. But the anxiety will wane, as always, when this blows over.

    I’m just so happy to know I am not suffering alone. I know that sounds awful, but it makes me feel more determined now.

      Oh yeah, the whole illness thing. For myself I automatically assume that it has an emotional/spiritual basis when it happens to me. I’ve rarely found a reason to question that assumption.

    Howdy,
    Going to jump to it and say that this article gave me insight as well as the reaffirmation (that I so should not have needed, but admittedly did need.) I am currently noticing and accepting that I am gifted. It’s been quite the process, and I often question the messages that come through as well as my confidence in my abilities. This post pin pointed me in so many ways, and completely nailed some of my tendencies as well as the spats I’ve had with my anxiety lately. I totally appreciated this-thank you so very much. Hope all is well.

    i just found this site cause ive been looking at what causes all my panic attacks.
    i cant really remember all my childhood to know if ive seen or talked to ghost cause ive basically blanked all my memories out after my mom kept sending me to certain doctors when i was 13 and i cant remember why but she told me is because i was remembering to much of my childhood that she didnt want me to remember. but if im in a certain place in my moms house i have these panic attacks that makes me feel like im blacking out, suffocating, and paralized. i know when theres spirits and bad spirits around, i can feel the energy. and i know when someone is about to die around me, im not sure who but it always happens. im not sure whats wrong with me and why i have those panic attacks, my mom told me that 2 people has died in the house weve been living in. a long time ago though. i will have them panic attack in certain random places, and something negative is always there cause i can feel it. does that mean i have a psychic ability? i mean this lady i used to work with, i remember when it was her first day i felt something about her, and she randomly came up to me and told me that i have the power, i just havent gotten in touch with it yet. gave me chills really. i didnt know what she was talking about though, but when i got to know her, she told me she was a wiccan, had psychic ability, and she said i was but havent found my ability yet cause i wont let it.

    I found this blog tonight after a search related to schizophrenia. I am 25 years old now. But for my entire life I have felt different. When I was younger I had a very close relationship with my brother, who I believe to be heavily psychic. I also felt the same way about myself, and at times him and I could really communicate without using words. Also we both shared our stories, and prior to his stint in the marine corp.. He never once seemed to doubt this reality for either of us.

    I remember telling my mom, at a very young age that I was psychic. Back then (and still today) I did not know what that fully meant. In fact, I only knew a generalized idea of it. But the things I saw/felt/experienced were enough proof for me that at the very least, I was experiencing heightened states of sensitivity.

    I have struggled very much with my internal battles. I have been homeless and unable to support myself. Life has not been easy for me, emotionally. Coupled with who I believe also to be highly psychic (my mother) who is a tormented soul- living her life on a different level of understanding most of the time. She is furiously fighting with inner denial, hmm…much like myself.

    Reading this blog has opened up a well for me that I still, am expertly guarding with a dam. I have learned to be in control so much that I have shut down those parts of me..parts I do not have the words to fully explain.

    Things mentioned in this blog were alarming to me, as much of it I experience.
    I am confidently holding back tears as I type this.. I could cry for what I’ve read.

    Honestly, aside from my brother, mother and few people I have met in my life…I have never truly looked into this part of me. I think part of it is fear. But other parts include heavy “mental fogginess”, wavering memory at times, and this strange inability to even remotely focus on myself…(other than all the intense feelings I have)
    In fact much of what I can focus on is my suffering, internal and beyond. Not much else.

    Recent life threatening experiences and boughts of homelessness/trauma have encouraged me to look deeper into myself…though. Slow is this process, and often thrown off track.

    There are so many things you have mentioned here and in the other blogs that I wish to highlight (but for sake of the length of this reply I will not mention)
    Which seem to fit exactly to many of my experiences I have had.

    But that extreme sense of calm/control in an emergency situation? ME! Every time. Every time! People have even said this to me on occasion.

    Also there is this sense that my presence is needed in an emergency. As if I am a guardian, a protector. I feel that my presence alone is crucial, almost without even doing anything. But then theres also the part of me that almost always seems to know what to do.

    Because of this, I have often felt ‘crazy’ because my intense awareness to the actions of others/danger around me has always seemed to be un-noticed by others. Or that I was simply berated as needlessly ‘paranoid’ etc. So much so that I began to believe it myself. Now I am suffering internal conflict of knowing when/how to trust myself (my intuition) and when or if it is actually paranoia, needlessly.

    So much more I could say..this is a huge eye opener for me, that part of me always knew…but through trauma and social situations I have learned to stuff it down, hide it. But your blog is encouraging me to resurface and connect with myself- to be honest with me- again..

    Ugh, it’s just so hard.

      Hi Stephanie,
      Thank you for your compliments! Let me add as well, that when I created this blog, it was with people like you in mind. My goal, (and apparently I have succeeded) was to talk about the darker sides of being psychic, but also to help ground people in the science and psychology of what they were up against. If you understand that the science says that you’re not crazy and the sociology behind being psychic means that you’ll be an outsider your whole life, then you know that you haven’t made any mistakes or done anything wrong. This is the hand you were dealt and you’re playing it as best you can. There is peace in understanding this.

    Hi there, great article! I have just come across this!! Does anyone suffer from strange symptoms?? I’ve been psychic and I now do it professionally but I feel like I’m always ill. I suffer terrible headaches, chest ache and pain and heart palpitations, I have been to hospital many times thinking I’m having a heart attack…had bloods run, the lot and they always say its anxiety. I’m just wondering if this ‘hyprochondria’ as I’ll call it happens to anyone else? Thanks, Keely xx

    Hi, I know this was written some time ago, but YES!! These past few days have been hard, but I feel today especially I am so FREAKED out. I was just stuck in a store for sometime, because I couldn’t move my self to the front to get out of there. :( :( I was driving back to work on the verge of tears and sometimes even driving is incredibly hard. I’m a worrier anyway, but I can barely breath for all of the tension in the air today. I can’t cope with this, it is extremely intrusive in my life. The only person I feel comfortable around is my boss and my fiancĂ©, and even then sometimes I just want to be alone. I feel physically ill. :( :( Does this ever go away? I wouldn’t call myself psychic, but maybe I’m a good guesser. I do have experiences sometimes, and I tend to see distortions in the air that I haven’t quit figured out. I just want to be able to go to the store with out have a full-blown panic attack. :( I’m so frustrated with this.

    Hello when I was younger I had more ability than now. I work as a science teacher. Nature, math and science (physics & chemistry) comfort me. My husband suffers more than I. But we do fit the descriptions It happens less now that I am in my 50′s but it is still there. Do you ever feel really lonely? I do.

    Very good article indeed! Something I have never read online or in a book. for some reason people don’t like dealing with the “negative” sides of being psychic. For myself, I know no other way, ever since I was a small child I would tell my friends (not very many by the way) something that was going to happen to them or a family member of theirs. There is a huge benefit to this gift though, like knowing when things are going to crash in the economy. I was in FL in 2007 and knew we needed to move. I told my wife that something huge was getting ready to go down economically and we moved to NC because the housing was cheap and we had family there. needless to say, the big crash came in “08. This gift has it’s other downfall also, which is not having many friends, especially in the “bible belt”…. So it’s not all glamorous as T.V. makes it to be, although well worth every minute!

    I have always dealt with a great deal of anxiety on and off my entire life. When I was younger I barely slept because at night, I would hear spirits/something walking around and talking. I’ve never really told anyone that because when you do people just think it was an overactive imagination and sometimes I question that myself too. Thank God that no longer happens. Now as an adult I get intense anxiety when in situations where a lot of people are around. It makes no sense to me because I am not shy or timid in any way. It has led me to be a functioning agoraphobic. So now Ive been researching anxiety linked with physic ability to try and shed some light on it for myself and find ways to embrace it and live a calmer life. Can anyone point me in the direction of a book to read to help me meditate maybe and get my sh%t together cuz its annoying. I pray everyday and that has helped a bunch, but if I can put a “gift” to work and help people it would make this a whole lot easier.

      This is not a book on meditation but it is helpful:
      The HISS of the ASP by David Ritchey is a comprehensive look at the personality of psychic people.
      You may find it useful due to its reasonable scientific attitude toward psychic experiences.

    Hello Craig, I am so glad I ran into this site. I connected to what is being written. I am so sensitive and can feel things about to happen. My family is totally estranged because of a death in the family. One person has taken over everything and that is the person I most put my faith in and loved. I still love her but do not recognize her and she does not mind that she has left me go from her life. I am trying to come back with God’s love and activities like walking in the sunshine. I am so sensitive and I have been for many years. I have had dreams of what the work area looked like for two jobs in my life before I got the job and then realized that I dreamed about it. What happens if you do not speak up for yourself and the other person is selfish and very controling is that your thoughts may come out all at once harsh about everything they did that was in bad character from the begining of time. I guess by the time I got done they just said whatever and tossed me aside and not distributing anything in the will because they are the executors. So that is a devistating event for me. Thanks for listening.

    I believe that I have psychic abilities. I believe I have had them ever since I was a child. I had my first experience when I was 13 years old. When I saw a spirit standing behind my rocking chair and it was looking at me then went from there and walked to my bedroom door and then it was gone. As I got older my abilities have grown more and more. I see spirits more often now not in the corner of my eye but in my purifel vision. They come night and day and some of them want to talk or need help. For a while there I started to ignore my abilites and I shut my doors. About a month ago I collapsed at work and thought I had a heart attack. Im 26 years old but I didnt have a heart attack but what caused me to think I had a heart attack was caused by alot of stress and anxiety and I had some panic attacks. Ever since that happened my abilities have come back and it has gotten more stronger than ever before. Now I see spirits again and hear them. I feel when they are around and when I get that feeling of being watched. I feel peoples emotions and thoughts and energies and feelings when Im around them which is strange cause ive never felt those emotions and thoughts and energies and feelings from people before. I know when something is wrong with a person without them telling me. How can I control my stress and anxiety from my abilities? How can I control my abilities? I want to learn to control my abilities and I want to use them not just for me but to help others around me.

      I’m not a big user of my own psychic ability so I can’t be of much help personally. There are many, many books on this subject that I’m sure you could find with a little research. Even from the library.

      Good luck.
      Sincerely,
      Craig

    I have psychic tendencies. I am a locator. but lately, ugh. I have such bad anxiety right now. I know the new age is coming. the weather is crazy. people are suffering unrest. political, spiritual, emotional. I can feel it when I watch the protests in New York and all over the world. I just can’t relax. and I feel that we are on the cusp of a new world order and an otherworldy disclosure.
    How do I function when I am this wound up? how do I let this go? i am feeling too much. help!

      You too? It’s driving me crazy! Breathe deeply and radiate energy outward from your core and your entire body at least once a day and give it everything you’ve got. We are all pushing through some very heavy and challenging energy and we’re getting close to getting through it.

    I don’t know if I’m psychic. I get anxiety when some shitty is about to happen to me. LIke things are going fine and one day I’ll wake up with gut-wrenching anxiety and later that day my boyfriend dumps me or whatever. I can’t tell what part of my feelings are real sort of psychic ability and what part is probably a panic disorder and what part is self-fulfilling. I just know that sometimes the feelings I get really do manifest themselves into real situations outside of my control. Other people doing things that I couldn’t have known. I’m not sure what I’m asking here. How do you get better or get rid of these psychic sorts of intuitions? I can’t sleep sometimes from the pain in my chest and I’m afraid of everything.

      Yeah, that’s psychic all right. It takes a long, long time to sort out what is going on with regards to what is psychic and what isn’t, and there is an argument to be made that the psychic stuff never really stops. It’s not the psychic stuff that’s got you in knots though, it’s just telling you what’s happening. It sounds like you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; I think we get it as children when we’re very sensitive and very, very vulnerable to emotional trauma. I think it’s rather common in highly sensitive people like yourself. In other words, you’re a normal psychic person.

      Regarding your panic and anxiety, you can’t make the psychic stuff go away without shutting your emotional life down completely and not feeling anything. That’s not really an option. I can only tell you what I have done that has been successful for me:

      Every morning my wife and I sit in bed and my meditation consists of imagining the things that make me afraid and unhappy and I work on reducing that stress during that time. Over time, the fear and unhappiness diminishes and life gets better. I should add that I’ve been at this for years and while I’ve been steadily improving, it has been quite slow.
