I'm Afraid To Have A Gift


First of all, I don't know whether I do have some sort of gift or not, if I do it's not nearly as developed as many people have described their owns gifts on here. I simply have very detailed dreams that come true, but the dreams are always of mundane things, like conversation, but they are so detailed that when I'm for example, sitting and talking to a friend, I will look around an realise the surroundings and be immediately reminded of my dream, and before my friend finishes talking, I'll know what she's going to say. Lately these have been changing from just a small amount of conversation to almost a whole dialogue.

I don't think I have a gift though, since the visions are so mundane?

Also, this year I have begun having overwhelming feelings of dread or anxiety when I'm around a group of people or friends, so much so that I have found it hard to breathe sometimes, like I physically can't handle whatever emotions I'm feeling. Originally I thought it might be stress or anxiety, but I really don't have anything to be stressed or anxious about at all?

Lastly, and more terrifyingly, I saw some kind of human figure, but as a shadow, yet. It was not against the wall? I was staying at my father's place and had been up all night, so I was half-asleep when I saw this figure, so it could have just been my tiredness? The figure wouldn't go away until I shut my eyes and called for my father who came into the room, and when I opened my eyes it was gone. I never went back to that house ever again (my father moved soon after).

My mother's sister always says she can see spirits, like her dead brother in the mirror. Could that be passed down to me?

In any case, after reading various stories on this site, I'm thinking about seeing someone who can tell me about what's going on with me face-to-face. If there is nothing, then I can continue my daily life as normal, but if there is something. That's what I'm scared for. I have read many terrifying experience on here, and I'm scared that if I do have something and develop whatever it is I might have, am I right to be scared? Do you just get used to the sense of fear? How do you overcome it? I am terrified of spirits, truly, and the thought that I might be able to see them does scare me. What can I do?

Hey. I'm 14 & all this started for me Last summer. I was in the same place as you are scared to death of what might happen. I have seen spirits, only one scared me. One was just minding his own business & the other was actually trying to talk to me. But honestly you get used to it, depending on the spirit you feel fine, if you do get scared you should stay away from that one.
As for about if you have a gift, and this is from personal experience. Once it starts it doesn't go away, it just gets uncontrolled & it'll drive you crazy. I've done a ton of research online & people say meditating helps a lot to learn to control it.
Also I think your an empath, like me. It means you can feel other people's emotions. Sometimes if I was in a big crowd I would feel really overwhelmed with emotions. & like as soon as I hear someone's voice I feel what they're feeling. I think meditating is supposed to help that too. But I saw this online & I tried it if your having a moment when your like overwhelmed with emotions or its just too much.
Close your eyes & imagine a door, think of all the emotions & put them in the door & then close it. When you open your eyes you'll feel really calm. At least that's how it was for me. Hope that helps.:)

Hi bobafettuccine,
I'm not really in much of a position to help with such things, but I keep coming back to your post for some reason so I'm going to offer what little I know.
I was also confused for a long time by my visions being mundane. Most of them still are but I occasionally get one that to me has importance. Over time I am having more that are useful. My personal opinion on it is that the ones in the beginning were just a way of getting my attention and getting me used to them.
As for spirits, fossilera said almost everything I was thinking of writing. Saved me a lot of typing 😊
The only thing I can add to that is... I have recently been dealing with one that's kind of creepy. Last night I was having a rough night and kept questioning if this is a curse instead of a gift. When I really thought about it I realized I wouldn't give it up if I could. I have had many more good experiences than bad. Personally I feel that makes it worthwhile.
I hope my rambling helps you in some way.

I too have vivid dreams that come true and although I have not seen figures I do sense them. I'm 31 and this started in my early childhood then became stronger as a teen, as an adult I have tried multiple time to ignore it, but how can you ignore something that keeps getting stronger? And that is my point-It does get stronger. As I have tried to find answers through the years, I have come along many stories in which one only grows spiritually and so does fear, it doesn't go away and the more you push it away the closer it comes because you're so focused on it. Try to find the humor in all of this, I don't necessarily believe spirits are bad. I try to often ask myself what I would be like if I was a spirit. I hate to say this, but I would be very mischievous. And if I knew for a minute that I could find someone that would be able to help me try to communicate with those suffering from my passing, I would be annoying this person without end. I guess, try to look at things from the other side. Although some of my personal experiences have been scary, not all have been bad.

Hey bobafettuccine,

First off...

1. Understand this: The only thing that can harm you (spirit-wise) is your fear. Technically, if you fear nothing, then you, on your own, could take on even the most nasty entity on this planet - negative entities use that fear to as a bully does to kids: The fear is used to make you afraid of them, so that they can continue to do whatever evil they normally do.

2. Just because you can sense & see spirits doesn't mean that "all spirits will come after you", or that you'll have a bad experience like some of the people here.

For example, I used to own an ouija board - I went on here, and sure enough, there were stories about how "someone invited a demon in...", whereas I purposely tried to allow a spirit to let me know it was present. I did everything you weren't supposed to do with it, and only got frustrated (maybe I was being pranked by an entity, as I'm sure they got a kick out of me trying to make its presence known).

3. Usually, when I feel fear, it means that something is telling me to leave that place alone. So I'd say if you suddenly feel afraid, leave the area.

4. The easiest way to get over being afraid is to see them for what they are, and not as Hollywood portrays - Not all spirits are evil; some want to be left alone, some are playful (such as child ghosts, and poltergeists to a point), and some are territorial (ran afoul of some of those in my adventurous days - it wasn't fun, but I'm obviously still alive). The best entities are those that suddenly realize that you can see them.

5. One thing you can practice doing is treating them as "people" rather than "spirits". For example, if you're in bed, and sense that something is watching you, try saying something out loud, such as "I know you're there, and please stop staring at me, as I'm trying to sleep" (NOTE: if anyone asks, you can claim talking in your sleep).

I used to have a rule back at my old place: I told the entity that if it expected to live peacefully alongside me, then it better not startle or frighten me in any shape or form, as I'd kick it into the light faster than it could hide itself (never had a problem).

Another item you can try is a concept called "Shielding" - this just creates a shield, or barrier between you and the influence you want to avoid. Seeing as this post is getting pretty long, search the site for some basic methods.

Hope some of this helps (for now).
