Random thoughts on being clairvoyant

One of the things that I have seen over the past few years, since I came to realize that I am clairvoyant, is that people try to overanalyze your abilities ...or they can be downright judgmental (even if it's not intentional).

I have a hard time explaining that I am NOT psychic, and that I really don't know where this ability comes from. I see it only as that I am more in tune with my sixth sense than a lot of people are, and that I trust it. Many people have "gut feelings" on various things, but don't trust them for fear of being labeled Paranoid. I understand this; I really do. I have those days myself. However, the "gut feelings" have been right more times than not, and they have either saved my life (if I didn't move over when I was "told" to, I would have been in another horrible accident), helped me to not get lost while on road trips, and even helped my husband win a breakfast sandwich from Burger King (when asked which one of the skull images he should scratch off). LOL Sometimes the feeling is correct; sometimes, it isn't. I don't get the strong gut feelings every day. It's just that when I do, I pay attention.

The main thing that bugs me is when I am asked if I believe this is a gift from God (or some other entity ...you know what I mean). Me personally, even though I am a Christian, I don't like linking these types of abilities to religion. I feel it's a spiritual thing, but not a religious thing. I think anyone, regardless of what religion they practice (or even if they aren't religious at all), can have these abilities. Maybe all of us do in some form, but there are people out there who aren't aware of it. I'm still trying to understand it all.

Wherever it comes from, I see it as a blessing. I don't expect everyone to believe that I have this ability, because from a skeptic's point of view, it could sound farfetched. I just hope that everyone can respect that there ARE people out there in tune with whatever abilities they have & that they do help if you let them.

People seem to fear things they don't understand or can't explain for some reason.

i know what you mean! people think im crazy when i describe it, but its true. mine is more empathy, in that i can feel other people's feelings. occasionally, i'm able to predict people's statements and thoughts as well, though this has declined in frequency recently.

basically, i think its just a heightened sense of reality, so to speak. i can sense emotional cues that most people ignore or can't sense in the first place.

also - regarding it being a "gift" - honestly, i see everything in my life as a gift. God for whatever reason equipped me with this ability, i dont believe I've earned it... in fact, I dont believe I've really earned -anything- in my life. All by the grace of God, so to speak. :)

Thanks for sharing!

I can relate. It's hard when you're open and accepting of other people while they in turn judge you for differences in belief. You aren't pressuring or judging them but they can't seem to do the same for you because they are frightened or put off by your differentness.

The Casandra Complex
Some myth out there: The Cassandra complex says that if you are given the gift of prophecy, no one will believe you.

I think the psychic skills and abilities are just another sense that comes with this spacesuit we call the human body.

Do we fear others because they can see in color? No. because everyone can see (most), therefore, many people take it for granted and don't call it a gift from god/dess and think nothing of it.

Those of us who are further down the evolutionary ladder are developing the other senses. Imagine a future in which all of us will be empathic, telepathic, clairovoyant and clairaudient amoung many other things... and everyone takes it for granted. Religion or even spirituality won't ever come into it unless you lose a sense and pray for healing...
