The Gift

The Gift

One of our readers commented recently that she used to get accurate psychic visions about her friends and was able to help prevent things from happening. One time she had a vision about something that was going to happen and before she could interpret it exactly, someone died. After that she stopped letting any insight come in and now she wants to open up again.

This kind of experience is fairly common in a general way, although adding death into the situation certainly amplifies the reaction. I've heard many stories of people who were very open psychically as children and they foresaw too many things that scared them or visions they didn't understand and they closed down their gift at a very early age. The situation of feeling the inability to get a message in time, or interpret a message, would obviously be a very painful experience and it would be natural to shut down the flow of more intuitive information.

And yet, in the process of opening intuitively and spiritually, we do need to accept our humanness. We might not be accurate, timely or completely clear about a message. This happens to very gifted psychics, even professional ones. Professionals often get accurate information for others but have difficulty getting the info they need for their own lives, or they get it and aren't sure if they can trust it.

A psychic gift is not an exact, 100 percent reliable science. It is truly an art, and it is also limited by the priority need for the perfect unfoldment of the soul's path. We cannot get information that will stop an event that is supposed to occur. Some events that are painful, or that we deem 'bad' are necessary and part of the greater plan of the soul. Sometimes we will get a message in these situations that allows us to understand -- after the fact -- that the event was meant to occur. Spirit hopes we will experience some peace and understanding that we were given just enough information to know the event was part of the unfolding plan.

When my children were babies, one and three years old, I had a vision where I saw one of their heads cut and covered in blood. I wasn't sure which one it was but as a preventative measure we removed all the unnecessary furniture, pictures, lamps and decorations from the house into the garage. The living room and dining room area was completely empty except a sofa at one end. We told ourselves it was nice for dancing, yoga and tai chi and lived many days in this empty room.

One day we were sitting on the sofa talking and our three year old was with us. We were all very happy and peaceful. Slowly and quietly my son climbed behind us to the edge of the sofa and fell down behind where a large pottery vase was hidden and we hadn't seen it to move it. His head and ear were cut badly and he needed 37 stitches. Despite an accurate vision, clear interpretation and action, I could not prevent this! My guides told me then that illnesses and accidents often mark major turning points in our lives. Sometimes we can prevent them and sometimes we simply can't. 

We have to be careful when we have a psychic gift not to believe we are in control of everything, or that we can always prevent things from happening. All we can do is keep our vision clear by taking care of ourselves, tell people what we see in as empowering a way as possible, take actions when appropriate and then let go of the results. Each soul is always choosing their experience.

I have many posts in this blog about clarifying and developing intuition and these will help any of you who feel you closed down at some time, as well as those who feel you've never been open, but I will write soon about ways to open up when the issue is having purposefully closed down.

Yours in Spirit!
