the development of psychic ability -- it is a seed that is dropped from the sky
you have no choice in where it's dropped; no choice on "if" it's dropped
but the watering of your "psychic soil" -- that's ALL you
. . . nurturing the seed is not substantially different than caring for the corn in the field
eliminate weeds (typically these are people and their "attitudes"), give it the nourishment it needs (one good thing is plenty of space in which to grow, so it is not "crowded")
and kick back
you can't pull the seed from the ground because you decide you want corn on the cob this evening
same too with psychic "ability" -- it grows when the conditions are right
on "it's schedule"
but once the seed has fully matured, then you can enjoy the fruit whenever you choose
bottom line -- there are no short cuts
it's a natural process, that develops in "God's time"
