I don't know where to start to educate myself with what I have. Not even sure what gift it is. I did try to ignore it by keeping busy but sometimes it's so strong I have to find the person. I just want to understand it and do good by it.
I don't recommend that you try to contact people who feature in your psychic visions or dreams. I've got more than 20 years experience with this and I still make mistakes at times. People are not always receptive to the idea that you have a psychic impression about them, either. For now, the best thing to do is to document your impressions. Keep a journal of your experiences. That will give you a good start on understanding which ones are important to act on, and which ones you should leave alone.
Please come join our discussion group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/psychicgifts
We're a growing group of people, most of whom have the same concerns and questions you have. I recommend you read the back archives of the group before posting, there is a huge amount of information there. Then, if you still have some questions, tell us a bit about yourself and what you want to know. There are a lot of good people there willing to share and help out.
