Thumbs down Parent-Child Psi-linking

When I was five, I lived in Southern California. My mom was coming down from Oregon to see me, and when she was on the train (about 990 miles away) we shared a psi-link. I recall distinctly that I heard her say my name, and was convinced that she was right outside the house.

Question being, was it her or me who prompted the link? I'm tempted to say me, since I have been practicing virtually all of the listed forms of psionics since I can remember, along with Wicca, but who knows? It is possible, since she is a practiced Wiccan, but she made no mention of consciously drawing on energy to forge the link.

Could a non, non-active mother and child forge such a link simply because of the close bond between the two? Has this happened to anyone else? Please reply.

Yeah, most close members of psi families will have links to each other, so they can make sure that the other is all right. No doubt that link has been there since you were born.

My mum isn't remotely psi-active, and we have always had said bond, way before I was ever active myself. She always knows when I'm in distress of any kind, no matter the distance. I think these things just happen sometimes, regardless of whether there's any psi flying around in your family or not. =)

i'd think he'd be able to sense her using energy and what not but eh.

Because she rejected the idea of psychokinesis when I attempted to approach her with it when I was younger. And I don't know about you, but I'm prepared to at least look into other things and find out more about them now I am active and know some of these things ARE possible... therefore, I think my mother would probably be the same, and not so rejective of the idea of PK if she were psionically doing stuff off her own back.

Please note I wasn't suggested the bond has nothing to do with psi. On the contrary, I don't see any other way it could happen, really. =) All I meant was that we never intended it to happen, and it did so when neither of us was actually doing stuff.

Also, I'm hopeless insensitive to energy unless I'm doing it and I actually know where it's going. So that's not exactly reassuring. Oh well! =)

How would you know if a parent was psi-active that didn't talk about psi abilities openly, or consciously know they existed? Are you saying that if the kid has an interest/develops skill or aptitude in psi, that there's a chance that the parents had it also? (Just pondering here.)

Hmm. If psi is genetic, is it a dominant trait or recessive?

Keep in mind that your mom grew up without internet, and during a time when psionics wasn't up for dinner table conversations. She probably had parents that discouraged it, ETC ETC, and therefor if she is, she's probably going to want to hide it and never talk about it. It is a different world when you grow up without the internet to find others to connect to. When I first stumbled into the community, my first instinct was "omg someone's going to catch them discussing it PUBLICALLY and its going to be a regular old fashioned witch hunt"

There is genetic tendancy, families with a psi person USUALLY have more than one. I don't think its a direct heredity, I think its more like Autism in the way it's passed on. Linked to multiple traits, and not a direct line of heredity but it "tends to run in families" and "if you have one kid that's psionic, your chances of having another are high" type thing. That's my running SUGGESTION it's not proven, but psi and autism seem to run the same familial patterns and Autism hereditary patterns have been studied.

As far as links between psi kids and there parents. Yes. Definately. Even non psis have shown evidence of a mother "just knowing" when something's wrong with her kid. I know when my kids are hurt.

I do know confirmed non psionic types "just knowing" when something's up with there kids. The bond between a mother and a child is very strong. You have this THING that is half made of your genetic coding. It is created from something that, during creation, is an energy event, then it grows from a single cell into a complete human being within the mother, getting all nutrition, and all input of the world through the mother, then it is born, and is (in most cases) dependant on said mother (well and father at this point, but still) for survival for the next mess of years. yes, the bond between mother and child is incredibly strong even for non-psi's. For some, that bond my be the ONLY manifestation of psionic abilities a person ever has.

I think an unwillingness to consider psychokinesis, which is quite an outlandish ability, a rare ability, and one I have never seen conclusively demonstrated in front of me (and I've been around a lot of psis for a long time) means absolutely NOTHING when it comes to whether a person is psi-active or not. Many psis do not believe PK is possible. They might even be right. I give it the benefit of the doubt, and let people who claim they can do it explain how.

It's not always easy to detect someone you are very close to, because you get used to 'tuning them out' like a constant sound.

Psi doesn't just run in families, it hops, skips, jumps, does cartwheels and backflips. I favor direct heredity, because although the occasional non turns up in a psi family, when you have two psi parents, it's a low percentage of nons you're going to have amongst their children. In my opinion, the pattern indicates a recessive. In some cases, the recessive has been doubled, producing an apparent dominant. This is because psis usually marry/have children with other psis, and not with nons. Even completely unaware psis who have no idea that they have ability (even though they use their low-level abilities instinctively) will tend to be attracted to other psis. So you can have two psi-active but unaware parents producing gobs of psi-active children.

In my family, I got Anka to do birth-switch readings while he was helping me move stuff.
The results? Not a single non in sight. My grandmother and mother were both very strong partials, my father a very weak partial, and my grandfather, both grandparents on my father's side, and my aunt were all moderate partials. I'm a partial--go figure. lol

Now, my kids' dad is born-on, his father is born-on--not sure about his mom, maybe non, maybe partial...
Both my kids are born-on.
