I am a mother of four in my mid 30′s and I have been told that I have some psychic abilities, mainly psychometry, paranormal, and lately remote viewing. Things come to me in the form of pictures in my mind, feelings and impressions, and sometimes sounds. I typically get them when asked to focus on specific objects or events. I clear my mind, think of the question or object and this blog is an example of what I get. This blog is a way for me to organize all my thoughts. I have never done this type of post before, so when I saw the request I thought it would be fun…
Q. Can we do a reading one day on questions about you Lynn?
With all the readings you do on a daily basis and all the crazy stuff people must tell you, does it all stay in your memory because it seems it would be overwhelming for one person to retain all that.
A. I actually do forget most of what I relay unless it is a topic that I have a personal connection to or one that I revisit often.
I best describe my memory of these readings like how a TV works. The information comes to and through me, much like how a TV displays a signal, but when the TV stops receiving the signal, it no longer recalls the information. I feel the Universe uses me the same way, and I am the vessel (just like the TV).
Many times people will ask me about a reading I did, and I won’t remember any of it, or I remember it like a hazy dream. I have even had times that I will reread a blog, and still not remember saying or thinking any of it.
Q. How do you deal with the emotional side of it, When you’re dealing with subjects that are very sad , tragic, people that are in really bad emotional states etc.. all dumping their secrets on you? I know I’ve asked you/told you things that nobody knows about and multiply that by however many readings you do a day. It’s a lot.
A. I am an empath, and this was a huge challenge for me because readings would really wear on me. Early on I had to limit myself to only a few a day. I did eventually learn how to break away energetically, and for the most part I am able do this really well. Occasionally, I still have a reading (especially when it is related to a loss or health issue) that really tugs at my hard and I find myself thinking on it for a long time even after the reading. I have learned that when that happens it is because there is still more of a message that just didn’t come through yet. If I open myself up and reform my thoughts, I can usually get the remaining information and relay it to the person (even if it is a few days later). I have realized through experience that this OCD or emotional feel is related to something that I need to finish, and then those feelings most always leave.
Q. If you don’t retain all of it are there some things that people ask or tell that have stuck with you forever?
A. YES. I have done some very emotional and private readings that have stuck with me. Even though I have learned how to empathically disconnect, I still have a great deal of compassion for what people endure. When a reading comes up that deals with something I relate to on a personal level (for one reason or another), they are hard to forget (and I don’t necessarily want to because they make me humble, feel gratitude and give me an opportunity to help someone that is in pain).
Q. Did you find it difficult to have friendships or relationships when you can just tap in and just know what the other person is thinking/feeling if they’re lying etc?
A. When I was younger, I didn’t really understand what “it” was that I had. I knew I was different, and always felt awkward, but didn’t know why. I never liked big social scenes, hung with a few close friends and that was it.
When I was in my teens and dating, that is when it got weird (and understanding people got very intense). I have a hundred examples, but I will give you just one (to avoid rambling on and on). My first boyfriend wasn’t the most truthful, and I knew it. I would actually hear this little voice talking to me in my head, and I would try to ignore it. This “voice” seemed to ALWAYS know where to be at the right time (and it was random) to catch him in a lie. Needless to say, very short relationship.
Q. Do you think this gift is passed genetically do you think you passed it to your children? Did it come from your grandparents or parents?
A. I do think some of this is genetic, and some of it is personal development. I recently discovered that a cousin of mine has seen and felt spiritual activity, but never tried to hone in her skills. The real challenge is that much of my family doesn’t talk about spirituality (there is still so much stereotyping out there) so I suspect it is much more saturated than what I even know.
I do think my children have some gifts. My oldest sees passed on family members in her dreams quite frequently. She has even had interactive discussions with them. I also have a son that is very sensitive. The best thing I can do is help them to embrace this, and not let them be scared.
Q. Can anyone learn to do what you do or do you think there’s a certain something you need to be born with or needs to be your calling first?
A. I was very fortunate that this came easy to me, but I do feel anyone can do it with determination. A mentor once told me that developing your psychic ability was like singing Happy Birthday. Everyone can sing Happy Birthday, but some people have the natural ability to sing it with such grace it brings tears to your eyes. I would agree, and with enough practice anyone can get there.
And that is all I have for this post. Thank you. Love and light-
