“Why Does My Psychic Ability Randomly Stop Working?”
Intentional psychical influence/intention requires isolating which of your human behaviors result in specific psychical behaviors. In regard to spontaneous phenomena, this is typically linked to emotions. Fundamentally, intentional phenomena are the result of needs, rather than a simple desire to perform, regular (daily) needs.
Therefore, you need a regular reason to use the ability to build solid and effective experiential skills. In addition, altering thought patterns, for example shifting negative thinking patterns into positive thinking patterns, can also help.
This can be achieved through mindful meditation and behavioral therapy, i.e. in effect teaching your brain new (psychically conducive) ways of managing emotional reactions and thought patterns. Spurts of disbelief and other self-defeating behaviors can also lead to “shutting off” an ability for periods of time.
In addition, stress, anxiety, and other neuroses typically alter influence in way other than “shutting off,” primarily it shifts intention to work opposite, or backwards. The only resolution to this in particular is to either wait to perform until you compose yourself, such as meditating prior to performance, or being aware of when you are not composed, whereby being aware of the modified dynamics of influence.
In addition, perhaps this specific type of phenomena is not your strong suit. Taking my free psychical profiling assessment may help you gain some clarity on this issue. In addition, is it possible you are simply “choking under pressure?” In other words, are you thinking about performance too much? Do you feel paralyzed by analysis? Do you feel as if you “need” to control every aspect of what you are doing to ensure success (e.g. people, the environment)? In these cases, meditation, such as 10 minute relaxation techniques, and practice can help. Lastly, did you change your approach or technique?
While ESP and PK appear to exist outside of physical law, they do appear to exist within the area of physical possibilities. In other words, while there are extraordinary things people can achieve psychically, there are limitations. Are you practicing outside of your limitations? The best way to figure this out is to learn more about your ability through others with your specific ability, or read books, journals, or papers on the assumed mechanics/dynamics of your ability.
