How do you guys here (the ones that are sensitives, as you guys put it) handle telling people what you can do. About the only person that knows about me is my fiancee Melissa, and she believes me of course because she can do the same thing.
A part of me is still skeptical about what I can do and doesn't want to believe it, but there is really nothing that can dissprove to me that I can sense ghosts (but then again I only started really beleiving a few weeks ago). The thing is, if there is a part of me that doesn't want to beleive, then how do I expect other people to beleive?
And there is the thing about people thinking I'm a nut. And then there are probably people that beleive in ghosts, but also a lot of other stuff that may or may not be true and could try to use me to validate all their beliefs.
Do you guys don't tell anyone unless you somehow know they already believe in these sort of things? Also, when you find someone that claims to be able to do something, how do you know whether they are genuine or delusional? Of course, if someone claimed to be able to do what I do I could tell whether they are lying or not because I can actually do it. In short, how do you guys handle skepticism?
Greetings and Good Morning. I am new here as well.
I have always been open, but really became involved in the 1970's when I was 17. Being a flower child was "cool" and the traditional Christians were not nearly so powerful.
I had gone to a retreat were a woman went around the circle and told each person about themselves by reading their 'colors'. I'd never seen her before, yet she told me about myself. I was AMAZED to put it mildly. I believed that if I could do that I would be able to avoid getting hurt. I began to study and pray.
Soon I was able to do the same thing as the "retreat woman". This is not aura reading in my case. The inquirer tells me a name. A color-field appears on a screen in my mind. I interpret the colors.
During the same year, I went for an I Ching reading. It was so helpful that I bought my own book and began to practice.
When I was 19, I had my first serious experience. I was going to commit suicide, had a large butcher knife on my wrist, when two spirit hands took me by the shoulders, the knife dropped from my hands. The spirit hands turned me, directed me to walk from the kitchen. I found myself in front of the phone book. (I was living in Los Angeles at the time with an abusive husband who drugged, drank and verbally abused me) Anyway, I opened the phone book. It was the page for a taxi. It was as if I was in a trance. I dialed the number, then turned the pages again. There was the number for PSA Airlines. I packed my things in a pillow case, took the cab to the airport, flew home and was lovingly nursed back to health by my family.
There's no denying what happened then or what has been my life experience since.
What is a ghost? Just a spirit without a body, that doesn't quite know how to get home (to the afterlife) There is nothing to fear, but fear. Stay in a state of love and send them to the light. If they won't go, call an angel to help them.
