I mentioned before that there is a process where one confirms that they are a reader with other readers, or that they are “let in” by others in ways that prove the link. Readers might do this in ways like meeting somewhere, after communicating about the location through telepathy, to confirm with each other, without communicating out loud, that the ability is real.
Non-readers should avoid this set up with readers if they feel they are being blocked by others as opposed to self-imposed blocks. This is because readers will use this process to throw awakening non-readers off the path. Readers might fake a process of confirmation and make the connection appear as some kind of delusion.
