Let me first say this: every human being is born with psychic abilities. Some are more capable, having a natural mechanism that makes the ability more prevalent. Others get "bits and pieces", and there is always good ol intuition.
Most of us know this, and many of us have experienced it in a way that makes us able to exercise the ability without thinking of it. We don't consider ourselves "powerful psychics", no one likes cocky after all;)
What's difficult for the seasoned psychics is having a younger (and not altogether great) ones try to 'read' us. Well me anyway, no offense to anyone, I just observe ;)
I don't want to be mean when their so called reading are so preposterous it borders on the impossible. I don't want to sway them from learning and honing natural skills...but shouldn't someone tell them it's actually stunning how unpsychic they seem? Or let them know they aren't powerful, they actually are so incorrect that statistically they should have accidentally gotten something right by then?
I really wish there was a set code of manners and etiquette on this subject! When I hear their predictions, readings, or my personal favorite -they call their visions "prophecies" (omg awwwwws) I kind of want to chuckle and roll my eyes.
I have a theory. It's called the "Booger in the Nose Theory" and can be used in a broad range of instances. Basically, the premise is that no one wants to walk around with a big ol booger in their nose, embarrassing themselves as they talk to people who don't say anything for fear of making said embarrassment worse. The thing is, the booger wearer doesn't know it's there! They would be mortified if they did, but being as they don't they continue on as if nothing were wrong. So, they need a kindly person to point out the obvious so they can remove the offensive bits and move on. They can't fix a problem they don't know is there!
Which leaves me with my original problem: to tell them, or not to tell them???
