What Did My Grandfather Mean?


When I was around 10 my grandfather died of breast cancer, but I remember that for months before, I could sense that something was wrong with my grandfather, when ever I would go to his house. I remember asking the same question, "Papa, are you going to die?" just like that. My grandfather would reply, "Boubie, I am a spry chicken! I have years left to live!" And every time I felt like he was lying. But he wasn't lying, he didn't know he was dying.

We found out 1 month before he died that he had breast cancer, but by then it was too late for chemotherapy. My grandfather came to me about two weeks before he died and asked me, "Boubie, how did you know I was going to die?" and I told my grandfather, "Papa every time I touch you I see you in a coffin."

My grandfather smiled and he told me, "Boubie you have the sight, just like I did. Be careful how you use this power. Boubie, sometimes having this power will feel like a curse, but know you have it for a good reason." My Grandfather told me a lot of things that night about our family, but he said one thing, that even until this day I don't understand. He said, rather cryptically I might add, "Never let the darkness that you see, overcome the light that you are." If anyone can understand what he meant please tell me!

It probably means that you should never let the bad experiences that you have or the bad people you meet consume you and take control over you. You should always have hope and faith and never let anything or anyone affect you negatively.

camyl: the gift that you have you will sometimes see some very ugly dark things, some that people have done, some that have had these things done to them, and some non-human. I think you grandfather was trying to warn you of this without scaring you when you were little, a warning not to let what you see destroy your innocence. In the psychic world light = good and dark = evil.

I think everyone here has had very good answers for you. I think he meant don't let the sometimes bad things you see (the darkness) affect your way of thinking. Such as someone who is hurt a lot in relationships will become bitter over time and people who see bad things will think there is nothing but evil and suffering. And also not to use your sight for the wrong reasons. I think he wanted to remind you that you're a good person and not to let bad things affect you.

I think he wanted to give you a gift, and you've shared it with us which is very sweet. Thank-you. My grandmother, my dad's mother died at 56 of breast cancer when I was ten. She didn't have money, but land, and the present was bath powder. I won't bore you with details, but I kept it years, and it was odd. Things happened around it. It is perhaps isolating being sensitive, and not always pleasant, to know things. Our lives aren't easier, just we understand why more perhaps. Those words should be very special and warm perhaps. Mostly we are meant to share which is what you done. Don't "dwell" on that other place because you're here, but it is nice to help others and learn about that other stuff. I may be way-off, but my two cents worth.

A few months before my grandmother died, I remember being very sad and and crying, which is weird because my grandma was pretty healthy...

There are people with abilities that take and use them for something that they shouldn't. Don't let darkness take over, which they do try at times. Use only for good. If you ever see darkness, remember you are of the light. The light is much stronger with God by yourside.

Camyl, many times people who can see, see things that are not very happy, bad things, illness, death and this is what your grandfather meant by the "darkness", this and a few other things. But you have your power for a reason, and the whole meaning oh the expression "Don't let the darkness you see overcome the light that you are" means don't get scared. I know a lot of people who had this gift, could see things that scared them so bad that they sort of blocked everything. And now they regret it. I think maybe your grandpa had it and then blocked it in some way and was trying to worn you not to repeat his mistake. Don't let it happen to you, don't let them scare you, hold on to you gift, try to understand it and develop it.
