First up – we ALL have psychic abilities, some are just more in tune with them that others and have worked at honing their skills. No doubt we could all fly an aircraft if we had enough training and practice! You most certainly do not need to be special or a 3rd generation psychic to do this work.
If you think about learning to drive or even fly, you had to start in a stationery vehicle, discover all of the different controls and then over time learn about each one. Once the controls are locked in you learn to start using them all together – clutch, gear stick and turning the steering wheel whilst indicating! This is just the same as your psychic abilities. First we start learning all the basics such as clairvoyance, scrying, creating ‘space’ in our minds for messages to come through. The more we learn and practice with these skills the more our confidence grows and we trust what we are receiving. Then it starts to become second nature and the skills overlap and we will get to see, hear and know all the STUFF!!
So to answer the original question – NO, you most certainly do not have to be special to be able to tap into your skills. Yes, you may do better with some of the superpowers ie, hear things more than you see things, but you are your unique self on all levels.
It is important to understand your own uniqueness too. When we compare ourselves and where we are at on our psychic development journey (or any aspect of our life for that matter) it is all too easy to feel we are useless and not good at it – just look at them, they can do this, that and the other so easily. I am here to tell you they are more than likely thinking the exact same thing about you and the abilities they see in you.
In the end it boils down to being drawn in some way to the Woo-Woo world and all it holds and if you were not indeed psychic you would not be reading this to start with J
