and that power is rooted in the ability to "rise above" fear
and what do psychic's fear?
. . . not being "accepted"
when you move past the fear of being outside the cave while the rest of tribe is inside having cookies, then you start inching along towards something great
1) if I say something you don't like, perhaps you will shun me
2) if I say something that is incorrect, perhaps you will shun me
3) if I am not as GOOD as the next person . . . perhaps you will shun me
this can rooted in 22,000 different flavors of being "shunned" . . . but it all boils down to being able to stay calm in the face of the incredible fears people face
in being "different", when they are conditioned from birth that what matters is "fitting in"
psychic ability can only thrive when you move past this fear
. . . if you care (too much) what others think, you're ruined straight from jump
