Generational psions

Do you think that if a (non)person toys with psionics in their lives, that when they have kids, those kids will be born born-psis because of the psi exposure to the parents?

Although I know of no cases where this has actually happened, so we can't be sure, I personally tend to doubt it. I feel that although early exposure to psi can make a child more likely to exhibit stronger psi abilities earlier in life, it cannot make a child innately psychic. My only evidence for this is that the reverse isn't true. I've spoken with a handful of born-psis over the years who stated that neither of their parents, nor anyone else in their family had any psi ability. On closer questioning, it was revealed that these people had been adopted.

Prenatal exposure is impossible to account for, of course. But there have been cases where born-psi children were born to a mother who is a non, but a father who is born-psi.
What's more, there have been people who have reported that a close relative was born-psi (aunt, grandparent), but NEITHER of their parents were. So there was no prenatal exposure to psi to any significant degree, yet they were born psi.

The reality is that the genetics theory needs a whole lot of testing to be rightly called a theory and not a hypothesis. Casual observation seems to support it, but there are a lot of questions that need to be answered for any certainty.

I was wondering in relation to this question also. My mother has this premoniton ability and I've inherited it. I was wondering would that be my main ability? Or can the starting point for my abilities spectrum change?

Your spectrum will not necessarily be the same as that of your parents--mine wasn't.

Also, I should note that nons are born into born-psi families. Such children often develop psi abilities from exposure (and possibly self-defense if they have siblings, lol). This doesn't mean they become born-psi, or innately psychic--just that growing up in that environment has encouraged them to learn it the way they learn everything else as children.

Since the grandparents on both sides of my familly are deceased and I do not have contact with anyone on my fathers side, the only evidence of psionic activity in my familly lies in that my half-sister had prophetic dreams, my mother can see aura's and my aunt...Well that i am aware of, she is highly intuitive and can read people. oh, and one of my cousin's is psychic, but we don't tell her that, she's only 10 this year so my aunt doesn't want her exposed to this stuff until she's older. My aunt and I seem to be the only ones who have tried to do anything with our natural abilities in any way.

I'm the only person in my family who has, either. But I am absolutely going to train my children starting at a young age. My son is 6 this year, and he now has the focus and concentration to handle it. It'll be a fun time. :)

I don't see the point. Seems like a waste of time teaching your kids stuff like that.

Vladimir, care to explain your point? Or are you just being confrontational because you're in a bad mood?
I mean, anyone who participates in this site, but thinks psi training is a waste of time...what are they doing here? They could surely find better things to do with their time...lol

I would prefer that my children grow up knowing and understanding that things such as this are possible. I'd go about doing that by exhibiting my Clairvoyant skills daily; putting them in an environment where they're constantly exposed to psi activity. Then when they start asking questions, I'll start answering, start explaining and start 'mentoring'/training. I'm not that good of a teacher.

As far as I am aware my mother has no psychic abilities and I know nothing about my father's side of the family pretty much at all.

In regards to children. It's tough enough getting a wife to even open her eyes about being psychic, but if we were to have them I would definitely make sure to teach them everything I could. A day out in a crowded place without shields is a reminder as to why.
