    I've been hinting at my parents for a while that I had psychic abilities and was met with general skepticism and humor. They've known for a while I wasn't 100% normal but generally brushed this off as just another pewep shenanigan I'll outgrow (so long as I didn't act weird in the house, they were cool with me). I was actually pretty nervous doing this because only 3 other friends in real life know what I am, and only one has seen that in person.

    Anyway, I am visiting them over thanksgiving and my mum and I were talking after supper alone and I asked her if she wanted to see real magick hahah. She had a confused look on her face, but told me to go ahead. So I pulled out an object and stopped/and sped it up a few times. The air conditioner was on and she said that this was just the wind and there was nothing really going on. Then I put a fan in front of the object and I had to relax for a bit and concentrate as hard as I could and switched on the fan directly in front of it. Without me applying force, the object moved very rapidly in front of the fan. Then I placed it back in front of the fan and forced my stasis field on it. It dead stopped. Could not move at all. She actually exclaimed at that point "Huh! It stopped...." I did this two more times before something just happened and I saw the walls of skepticism just drop.

    Then she started telling me she always felt like there's a connection between us and everything around, and that's just part of life. I'll admit she didn't seem very worried or surprised at all, she took it in stride hahah and was very calm. That's great, actually her third eye is open and also the energy centers in her palm. She just said that we were all connected and everything had its own life force. We talked a bit about how my great grandmother had precog abilities and how my ggmom had seen my dad's future decades in advance.

    Anyway my dad came down and I could tell he had heard what went on and had a "Sigh...what the fuck am I going to do with this kid" look on his face. I asked mum if I should show my dad, but she said I probably shouldn't lol. I didn't.

    The greatest thing is that they used to think that I was really wasting time just sitting in my room meditating for hours per day but now my parent said so long as I can find a way to feed myself and provide for my family, they will be fine with it. It was actually quite a relief that they have finally accepted my lifestyle and don't seem too worried when I tell them random shit that happens during my meditations.

    "Hey mum, yesterday I was seeing with my eyes closed!"
    "....That's nice dear :)."

    LOL! I love my parents. Wishing you all a happy thanksgiving :D <3.

    This has got to be the most misleading thread name I have ever read.

    I thanked you for mentioning Thanksgiving day. It was 21 years ago when I came to NY, and saw what Thanksgiving really meant to Americans. :)

    Anyway, I think your parents looked at you in as much amusement back then as they see you now! Parents are just like that, wherever they are. Seeing their children after almost a year or when there is special function, it will moisten their eyes and warm their hearts.

    This is actually quite easy to do using human echolocation. Even though I'm a sighted individual (before you say "clearly", there are blind people on the Internet who use JAWS Screen Reader or have others help them use the Internet), I found that it was a neat trick to learn as I only need to make palatal clicks in order to get an idea of what's around me.

    Anyway Pewep, it's nice to hear that your family was accepting of what they would deem as "eccentricities".

    Oh man, that reminds me of the documentary of the boy who could see very clearly using echolocation. Actually he was playing a pokemon game at one point. Very interesting stuff. Thanks man :).

    Yes, his name was Ben Underwood. Him and Daniel Kish (also blind) are probably the 2 best echolocators in the world, with the latter starting an organisation that helps other blind people learn to navigate based on sound. Daniel Kish managed to develop it to the point where he can distinguish a metal fence from a wooden fence based on the way the sound returns (if I remember correctly, the metal fence reflects a "sharper" echo while the wooden fence returns a dull one).

    There's another documentary about Daniel Kish somewhere, but it's an interesting topic to read about and an even better trick to practice yourself.

    I still can't figure that one out. I've just watched the video on YouTube. I've played pokemon enough to know that you can't navigate the world based on sound from the game alone.

    What do you do when this happens?
