Finding Myself AGAIN
I am currently 46 years old. As a child I had vision. I had the ability to see the future with prophetic dreams. I also experienced the future with empath abilities as I would assume the feelings of others days before the event. I had what I called knowings that freaked my Church going parents out. They made me stop. The last real experience I had was a few years ago which I think BROKE through the barrier I had created inside myself.
How do I go back there? I want to know all that I can about my abilities. I have started a support group at my home for people like me that want to know more about themselves. So far, we have 5 dedicated people who have the same yearnings. We need a mentor, someone who can show us how. We all want VALIDATION of our gifts.
Hello NMV ~ I've often wondered if children are born with abilities but if they are not nurtured and cultivated if these abilities become dormant? And also if these things run in families?
When I was 7, I had this dream every night for a month that my cat was a ticking bomb and that one day she blew up. The morning I woke up from not having this dream was the day my parents took her to the vet, she had a massive tumor growing inside her and they had to put her down. I know this probably sounds silly, but I was 7. When I was 17, I had a reaccuring dream every night for 3 weeks that brought back my memories of being 7. I was born overseas and we lived with my grandmother the 1st couple years before my parents and I moved to the states. Although I didn't see her much, the bond was great. For 3 weeks I had this dream every night that my yiayia had a heart attack and passed (she had not been sick & was in good health). Every morning I would urgently tell my mother that we needed to call her but we were only able to call once a month because it was very expensive to call overseas back then and I was told that it wasn't time for our monthly call. The final time I was to have this dream, I woke up at 2am and was in the kitchen getting a drink when the phone rang. As my mother came from her bedroom to answer the phone, I calmly told her yiayia was gone but it was ok and that she understood why we were unable to call. My mom answered the phone and my aunt told her that she had a stroke and passed. It's been 28 years and it still bothers me that we never called.
I've only had a few occurances of dreams coming to be, more like de ja vue or coincidence but my cousin has had many dreams and some think she is a bit flighty because she will just get up and have a feeling she needs to do something and just go with it. A few years ago she was overseas with her daughter who was having a minor surgical procedure when she got the news that our other cousin was in the serious condition, he was in a coma & the Dr's did not know if he would survive. She got on a plane and went to Jeruselm & we couldn't figure out why because he was in the states. She stayed for 11 days and went to many of the places our Lord had been and she would have these talks with our cousin. On the 12th day she went to the airport & called to say she was flying home & would be at the hospital by the next evening when he would wake from the coma. She walked in the room, hung a wooden cross over his bed that she had bought him in Jeruselm & a little over an hour later he woke up. Before the Dr's rushed everyone out of the room, he reached out his hand & asked her "where is my cross?" When she returned to the room, he described in detail every place she had visited in Jeruselm and the conversations they had while he was in the coma & she was in Jeruselm. He told her he had to wait for her to return with the cross before he could wake up. I still get chills every time I think about it! And my aunt, she has had many dreams of things she had no way of knowing about and senses things that turn out to be quite accurate.
So I am curious, do these abilities run in families? How do you know if someone has a gift and how do they learn to channel them instead of them being random? Others in our family, church going people, do not approve of my cousin and I seeking to explore this. We do believe & have faith in God but we also believe that the dreams and/or messages are being sent from a good being, maybe an angel & although he is quite capable, we do not believe these messages are coming from the devil.
I don't know much about this but I have always felt my cousin has a gift & would like to learn more. If you or anyone reading this can provide any information on how to learn more I would greatly appreciate it. I wish you and the others much success on reclaiming your gifts.
I have been told that EVERYONE is Psychic. However, I have acquaintences whom reveal that their gifts were also shared by a parent or a grandparent. Male or female, it doesn't matter. This makes ones quest for truth even harder. NO ONE wants to be criticized so they hide it as best they can. Back when our parents and their parents were young, the word WITCH was used as a negative description or label for psychic abilities. I believe that several indigo and psychic children where placed into mental hospitals long ago as an attempt to hide it away. I found out that my Father had these tendencies but I didn't learn it until after he died. He was somewhat supportive and acted on everything that I said but didn't say a word to help me understand what it is and cautioned me to keep things to myself. My mother was terrified of me and discouraged me at every turn.
Your heart warming story of your cousin in a coma is intriguing. The trip to Jerusalem by the other Cousin is a knowing and a spiritual freedom I envy. I sincerely apprciate you sharing that. I believe in Astral Travels. I believe we can communicate on a spiritual level any time and any where we want. I believe that our minds block us from doing this because common sense stops us, therefore the coma and diseases like Alsheimers free us from our minds eye and allows our spiritual freedom. Your Cousin is a blessing. She/He is a receiver. She believes and has confidence in what she is receiving. This takes tramendous strength and ignoring seekers of knowledge and just going for it.
Inheritance of Gifts? Good question. However, I don't think it really matters where it came from. We might be the first generation who looks upon our child and says, "its o.k. and this is what that is".
As for the messages coming from an Angel or the Devil. I agree with your thoughts. Messages coming to us are spiritual and are Angelic or Spirit Guide provoked. The validation of these messages occur from others or within us. Moving with the Spirit is personal and we all have to embrace our spiritual selves in order to know what those are.
The Devil or negative energies also exist, but their intentions are to confuse, sow seeds of distrust, jealousy and discord. There is no confidence and peace when the negative takes presidence. The bible warns us of this when it tells us we will know them by the fruits that they bear.
Thank you for your encouragement. I am a seeker of truths. What I know is beautiful and want to know more about it. It is also an unknown which makes it a little scary.
I leave you with this book. Becoming Psychic by Stephen Kierulff, Ph.D. and Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. The book has instruction on phases and steps to be taken in an exercise and spiritual lessons for focusing your hidden abilities. It is written with scientific knowedge and studies. Let me know what you think.
