I think it is possible to pass those gifts along just like anything else in a blood line. I believe it's a mix of things that allow different people to have those gifts, and heredity would be one of those, if that is indeed possible. My Catholic mother has had a number of either psychic or paranormal experiences, but it doesn't seem any of that was passed on to me. Many of the experiences she has related to me where of a deeper, spiritual , non-religious nature. I have had my experiences, but all were in the moment happenings, nothing mental or spiritual (apparitions, chair shaking, etc.). Now my father was supposedly old-school Southern Baptist, so he probably would have reacted much like your father, Cathy. He exited my life when I was seven (abandoned the family), so his blief system wasn't a factor in my childhood.
