This question stems from these three previous questions regarding our ability to see into eachother's minds:
We all did so well on @Eldavo's experiment especially; it was the present moment awareness that made all the difference, I think.
Now I'm wondering, why would it be that when it really mattered to me, when I really wanted to know where someone was, I have been so wrong, or have drawn such a total blank, so many times?
~ A heavy downpouring rain, it was late, and a family member wasn't home yet.
~ Picking up at the airport, I watch all those people walk safely off the plane - except my loved one.
~ A changed situation or misunderstanding cut ties, and I had regrets.
In each of these very real-life situations, I have so wanted answers to all the questions: Where are you? Are you ok? Has something happened to you? Are you upset and alone, or having a fine time, and it's only me with any concern at all?
In each case I have tried very hard to understand what was happening with the other person, and in each case, as I said, I was either totally wrong, or drew a complete blank.
How could that be, when I was so right about something that didn't matter at all?
In my experiment, I cleared all your thoughts and had you "focused" on my words. You weren't thinking of anything but what I was writing, no emotion involved except curiosity!
Grace, I had you "more focused" and "more involved" than anyone else because I "used your name".....then when I figured everyone would have an image....."that 1st image"....I said "immediately post it below"....BECAUSE your beliefs would start warping that image, doubting it, and you would start doubting yourself that you have this capability..."Oh, I've been wrong so many times before", then your emotions start getting involved and then you're so far off base at this point it's not anywhere near the original image....this is in the time frame of 1-2 seconds.
Seeing people's "thoughts" is for a more "practiced" person, but seeing what the person is doing is easier.
I have been practicing for about a year now (on and off).....and it takes "PRACTICE"..."PRACTICE"..."PRACTICE" and I was getting a 90+% success rate of images involved in the scene....many of the images I got didn't mean anything to me at the time, but they did later.
I made notes and my findings showed that any image that had emotion attached "was tainted" any image I had to THINK ABOUT "was tainted' and I would only accept "IMAGES" that came to me with no influence, and if I went into it EMOTIONALLY INVOLVED I would either get "no images" or "confusion and frustration."
Good examples: Driving in the car you will get images that "FLASH" at you, or after nap, when you wake up in the morning, when you're focused deeply on something your working on or reading. Meditation with all thoughts and emotions out of the way...then present your question and ask for an image
In the Master Key there are exercises in the beginning chapters on practicing to quiet your mind and body.....practice it everyday!!
Also, by drawing your attention to this tool you are flowing energy towards it. By playing with this tool you are drawing energy to it, by having fun with this tool you are drawing energy to it, it gets stronger.....by forgetting about it you are taking energy away from it, by ignoring it you are taking energy away from it, by doubting it you are taking energy away from it
...If you want to be able to get really good at it, listen to the Masters:
Qigong Master to student..."if you want me to teach you the powers of Qigong, meet me every day at 5am on this spot for 3 years and then I will know you're serious.....that's when I will start teaching you."
...this seems extreme.....but you get the idea.

The key is too not try so hard.
It Is Given
Allow - (This is where we all get hung up most of the time.)
Trying very hard is pushing against or holding resistance. That is the opposite of allowing. Just ask, know for a fact that it is given, then relax and allow the answer or situation to flow to you. The word "flow" sounds so much less resistant than "trying hard" doesn't it?
When you were taking part in the three links that were posted, the feeling was a fun type of game. There is no resistance when you are feeling good and having fun. Having fun and feeling good are you allowing your natural self to shine through. There is no pinching off of the ease and flow of pure positive source energy.
There is a difference in really wanting to know and trying hard to get the answer, and really wanting to know and allowing the answer to flow to you.
Worry, doubt, trying hard are very low, resistant, and dense vibrations which will only bring you more of the same resistant circumstances.
Allowing, feeling good, and knowing in a positive way, are high frequency vibrations which reflect back to you positive situations and circumstances.
It simply comes down to a choice of allowing or resisting. It all depends on the choice we make every single moment that is the now.

Cory has it spot on.You had two almost opposite vibrations regarding the Experiment and the real-life situations you describe.One was really enjoying and the other was really wanting.
I noticed you use the word want a few times in your question.Here is an interesting excerpt from the book A Happy Pocketful Of Money about the state of wanting.I hope it helps:)
