I'm not sure how it works for others but to me, whenever I get one of my premonitions or "strong feelings" it always seems like it something that's I'm being allowed to experience rather than something I'm controlling for myself. At times I have tried to reach out and get some sort of reading but it almost never happens on command like that, and the few times it did the sensation was extremely weak.

It would certainly be dishonest to charge money for something I couldn't guarantee would even happen. Perhaps something like this is going on. Someone has some ability but when put on the spot they can't perform so they have to fake it?

i wonder if these people started out with abilities but for whatever reason took the path they are now on. they must have had some type of interaction with psychics or the occult to get to where they are. but somewhere along the way went astray. either by who taught them or just by thinking they could "do it on their own". this is one of the reasons im such a stickler for proper training and not the shortcut, quick fix way of the modern new age movement. you cant rush the universe.
Indeed Paul, I think that some are that way. I think it was Uri Geller that said it is not always possible to turn “it” on, on cue. I think many feel the need to perform for the “show” when needed. Just like the TAPS ghost hunters that started out really honest and believable and many seasons later were caught faking stuff. The pressure of the producers no doubt, who wanted ratings.

That's always possible. There are many forms of psy ability. For me, I suddenly just "know". Best I can explain it. Claircognizance is my stronger sense but I have a bit of all the others. There is no "switch" to "on". It's either there, or not. I can hold myself open and let the senses flow over me which is the closest I come to an "on" switch.

My husband occasionally gets stuff too. He describes it the same way. It’s unpredictable.

If anybody tells you that you are cursed, haunted, whatever, and want to charge you crazy amounts of money to solve the problem, RUN, do not walk, to the nearest exit.
