What in the world is this?
As a kid I got shut down for telling people about these kinds of experiences, but I can't ignore them any longer. I have something more to give, and I want to tap into what I know has always been there. I want to tap into what has always been there.
I don't know where to go with any of this, who to talk to, or what even to look for. Do you have any suggestions?
It's common for children with strong intuitive gifts to be shut down, so that they repress those gifts. Often this repression of integral parts of the self continues well into middle age or beyond, so it's great you're reclaiming it at this young age.
With intuitive gifts—especially intuitive empathy—the trick is to learn to manage it, so it doesn't overwhelm you. You have to learn to set boundaries so that your gift is sustainable. Otherwise, over time, it can deplete you.
Self care is very important for clairvoyant folks, empaths and other intuitives. You may need to spend more time alone or in nature than less intuitive people. You may need to avoid violent or sad movies and TV. You may need to avoid needy or negative people who drains your energy. You may need to spend more time in stillness, meditation or prayer.
Often intuitive gifts run in families, so a close relative may be similarly gifted. Sound out your relatives. They may turn out to be people you can talk to about this and who can help you grow into it.
It's also likely that other highly intuitive people will come into your life. They're not going to be wearing a T-Shirt that says "I'm highly intuitive!", so keep your "feelers" out for them.
You're still very young and need to grow into your clairvoyant and empathic gifts. At this point, I would say, just observe them. Learn their contours and how to use them in a way that's good for you as well as others.
Do some exploring on my website. You might especially like this page about healer self-care, which is good for empaths and clairvoyants as well.
You might also enjoy this page about different intuitive styles. There are many other resources on the Internet. You may be interested in Louise Hay, for example. She has a FB page that I often enjoy, and she also has a publishing house with a lot of titles. I’d bet there’s something there for budding intuitives. You might also enjoy the publishing house “Sounds True,” which also has a website with lots of materials that I think will be interesting to you.
Your gift is precious and deserves to be treated well, so take care.
Warm regards, Nancy
