Hi allyann,Thanks Mir for your concern. I too come from a family with a strong pscyhic tradition. I also agree with Madie and Dreambirdie and believe strongly that if you come from a sense of self rather than from ego you will gain a lot from the psychic realm. It is only when you allow ego to take over that halm can come from it. I also believe this to be true of any religion or spirituality field.
