I think it takes a while to become comfortable with these things. Our intellect does isolate itself from reality. However it can be encouraged to accept that truly we are never alone. That those who are with us do love and appreciate all that we are.
As far as those who have skills and abilities are concerned. They are often involved with their own lives and are not inclined towards being curious about others. I also feel that if some one like you wants privacy it will be granted. Your higher self regulates who can and can not telepathically connect with you.
