Why you shouldn’t treat pyschic powers as magic…and my reservations with being an energy “healer”

Well an obvious reason is because this leads to an ego trap, a sense that Me, a psychic knows something you can't and therefore I'm better at you.

It’s become quiet in my head

An observation.   Ever since I've meditated I've figured out how to make the narrative part of my head shut up when I want it to. When yogis say - you are not the mind.
