In Yoga, paranormal powers are considered to be a natural consequence of spiritual practice, but not something that should be a priority or a goal on itself. this is simply for the reason that they do not fundamentally improve the human condition and can even become a trap, something for our ego to attach to, a source of pride.

in this direction, there is a useful story:
The Buddha was sitting under a tree by the river and meditating. one day, a man came up to him and asked 'are you the Buddha'? when Buddha calmly said 'yes' the man proudly said - 'i have trained for 20 years and look what i can do'. saying this, he sat in the lotus pose and then lifted off the ground, and hovered across the river to the other side. reaching there, he shouted 'So, what do you say?'.
'Buddha' said nothing, just slowly stood up from his meditation spot under the tree, walked to the river where a boat was waiting to ferry people across and handed a single rupi from his begging bowl to the boat men. the boat silently carried Buddha to the other shore. stepping off the boat in front of the man, Buddha looked at him and quietly asked 'How long did you say you practiced to be able to save a rupi when crossing the river'?

Telepathy, like many other paranormal abilities, can appear as a side-effect of a continuous and effortless control of the mental structure. if it, for some reason, appears without the state f perfect control over our mind, it will cause many problems, like a state of uncontrolled mediumic ability.
on the other hand, when achieving the effortless and continuous control over our mental structures, we discover an amazing reality which makes telepathy seem truly child's play. therefore, i would recommend to start by learning to control your mental processes - specifically, the attention.
Simply, at any given moment, be clear where you wish your attention to be and direct it there - focus it on what action you do in that moment, or upon the subject you are meditating, or upon the technique you are practicing, or upon a certain sensation etc. when you notice your attention wandering away, just bring it back to the chosen object of attention, without delay and yet with patience and calm. doing this again and again, you will gradually develop the control over the mental processes.
