To Use or not to Use my Psychic Gifts


Hi. I am 11 years old and am psychic. I have always had severe deja vu. One day I told my mother about how bad and how often it happened, she told me something I would never forget. My mom told me that our family had a history of being psychic and that we had two choices: 1) Ignore it and live with the deja vu or, 2) use my "gift" and become an all around psychic/medium. I asked her what all was involved, and she said, in not so many words, ghosts, dead people, seeing the future and receiving "messages" from, well you know.

I was like, "I don't even believe in ghosts! And I'm going to TALK to them?". She told me that I didn't have to do it. But it was true what she had said. When she was young, there was a very troubled kid in the neighborhood. One day, she heard that the guy had died on his motorcycle, more in depth, he was beheaded. She told me about how he would be in her house and sometimes even let the dog out. I never told my mom, but one day I told my grandmother on my mother's side about it, and she did not know what I was talking about and asked if my mother was feeling alright. I know that what my mother said was true.

I have been through so much in my life, dermatomyositis, asthma, near death experiences and I just don't know what to do! I know that God would help me, but I am so scared! If anyone has any advice for me, please leave a post. I feel bad not using my "gift" to help people, but I don't think I can handle it. I know that I could do it and it would happen if I decided to do so. What is the best thing to do?

God bless

hey...i know this sense make us feel weird... But it's hard for us to ignore it completely... At least you can tell it to your mother... In my family no one believes me. They tells me not think about it again... We can't stop it... It is sort of natural... I m 14 and don't know what to do with it... 😢...i too want help from someone because here in my family I can't speak it to anyone... I don't see or sense the ghost... But I do feel as if the particular things have been happened before... Or I get the glimpse of something and it comes true... Even some of my dreams come true... I don't remember some of them but when they come true I realize that I have seen it... This make me feel nervous and I get frightened... I too want help from someone... Please help me...! shall I make my family members to believe in me... My grandfather died a long time before... He would have listened to me and would have told me something... But he is no more... 😢 😭...HELP ME...

I wanted to reach out to you because my family has these gifts too. It runs in the family from my Dads side. My Grandmother had gifts, my uncles, my dad, my cousins, me & my brothers. Alex, by now your 13 years old. Your very young. It would be better for you to live your life the way you would any teenager. I understand that you feel gulity, but you shouldnt. At this point your not ready to get involved in becoming a full on physic or medium. My dad has a lot of gifts that came to him naturally and he told me its better for me to live my life instead of further developing my gifts. With the good comes the bad. So you won't always be dealing with good spirits - you will have dark souls around you. You may even experience demon attacks or see satan. Just wait until your older and have more perspective. I decided that I will not try to further my gifts on my own. When I have a predicition or premonition it comes naturally and I know that it comes from God. When you recieve a divine message from God you know that its real and that's the only kind of message you should want. When a ghost contacts you, you don't know who they are, or if they are good or evil. When a spirit contacts me I usually hear them or feel them, I don't respond because you don't know what their intentions are - usually they arnt good. I bless my room with holy water in that senario.

I don't know if you know this, but when a spirit is around you it feels tingly all over your body. If the tingling is painful bless your house with holy water asap. Since we have gifts we are more likly to be attacked by evil spirits, and contacted by spirits.

If you ever want to talk about it I would like to give you my email - however I prefer not to post it on a public blog.

my child also said that when deja vu's happened at school, it was very hard to concentrate, she would try to day dream them away, because of fear. You have another blessing and gift in my eyes. You are not afraid to share what you are going through. A lot of children would hide it away, suffering many fears, and problems. You reached out for help. Great job! You are NOT alone. We will pray for you:) my child will pray for you:). Just think of this dear young lady... You now have a 12 year old girl with simular qualities, and problems... Praying for you. You will never be alone. God bless you

Dear notquitesurewhattodowithit;
I'm impressed with yor ability to cope with everything and school, and homework. My 12 year old and I are the same way. We've talked about it many times... Somedays it seems that everywhere we turn and everything we do and even say, and even watch or listen to, for a day or two is nothing BUT deja vu. It used to scare her. As a child it would scare me. I'll share what my child and I share with each other.
You can't stop them from happening, We decided against even trying to find a way to stop them. We believe they are caused from dreams we have had (for the most part) some to warn us, of what "could" happen. Some are to show us that there is the highest power, who let's us know what's going on... In advance, we don't know why, but my 12 year old thinks that maybe it's to show us HIS power and might... Also HIS protection. Also we can pray for those around us when we have the deja vu's. Most of the time (empath gifts) It is a need someone else has...prayer. God is helping you:) Prayer is a great help. Look around while having them, take note of people around and pray for them. If "safely" possible reach out by smiling, and kind word.
Also Circles. Our lives grow and we see patterns of growth. Circles as we call them. Sometimes lasting a year or two... Sometimes just days or weeks, where we feel in the same spot again. Deja vu (just not as intense as the dream ones) Only this time of a circle completion we have grown and have been led to better and more informative things. Your extended family sounds ashamed and frightened. Mine is as well. But at least MY child will know. Never worry so much as to get bad grades (please?!) I believe that it is a gift of intuition, and prayer. You will eventually discover how you can use it for good. Does it happen at school? Must be hard to get through the day at times. But you can and will. My kid went through it as well, She says... Just keep believing in yourself, and don't EVER give up.

First of all ignore the "JB" guest. It's not appropriate to be pressuring you to stay in touch with your gift because he/she wants a reading.
That's selfish.

Second, it doesn't matter if you ignore it or get in touch with it right now. If you ignore it, it'll always be around. Later when you are more secure with what you want you can always quickly tap into your abilities. I suggest that you just don't even think about it. Let your powers run their course for a few years, just giving you deja vu dreams. At least 2 years, if not more. Then decide whether you want to really put them to use. At 11 years old you SHOULD NOT be worrying about this! You're only in, what, middle school? 6th grade?
Especially if ghosts scare you!
This power will only go away forever if you ask God to take it away for forever.

Good luck and enjoy life!

Alex [:

When the time is right God will reveal to your calling. Be patient and use your gifts for good. Go with God. Go in peace.

You are still young (not that I'm much older being 15) so my advice is, learn to use your gift only once you feel you can handle it. If you have doubts, it could lead to consequences that I wouldn't say are on the positive side. I do not know what you are going through, so I can't give any details on it.

Hope my advice was usefull.

don't worry about things like this yet. You, and I for that matter, are still only young. We don't have any responsibility over saving the world quite yet 😆 Just focus on improving your abilities at the moment, and it will all be fine.

Hi I'm just like you been what you been through maybe more though. I'm 16 and My dreams come true they are about me or someone close to me near to death, danger and I also dream about future events which come true. I see people in my dreams then see them as ghosts in real life in my house I see dead people I though I couldn't handle it at first but the one thing I told myself is to not to be scared they can't hurt you. They come to you for help I didn't believe in ghosts at first but now I do because I see them. I see floating clouds in my room and my room went all smoky last night in the dark which was very strange. I see symbols of half moon, doors and boxes. I see visions sometimes once of a man. I take pictures on my mobile and you see not just me in them you see ghosts in them. I have a picture ye where there's me faded away then there's like a head on its own which looks like a clown and there's a other person and there's like in the middle of us all splitting up there's like whiteness which is weird. I have another picture of a girl with short brown hair to the side but tall skinny white dress. I have another with a boy behind me a teen boy. They like being in pictures. Its nothing to be scared of. Everyday feel like its repeating and I dream of other people's life's and past life's. I see things which I haven't seen which I will see in the future for example I saw my baby book for the first time at the age of 11 but I saw it before that age maybe in my dream. I had a flash in my mind when I was 6 it went from right from the beginning when I was in a other life to this life to the age of 2years. When through the day I'm boiling then the next thing it just all all cold so I know when there's a ghost behind me or in the same room as me because when they enter all of a sudden the room goes freezing .

I think you are way to young to think about using any psychic abilities you have. You have noble thoughts but be easy on yourself and enjoy growing up first! Try to develop your gift. Let it happen and keep a log. This way you will remember clearly after the insidents occur. Look for patterns as to when these experiences happen and look for new ones. If these things are still happening to you when you are 16 you will have a better idea as to what to do next and by having the log will be prepared to continue on whatever path you chose.

Dear not,

Sorry, I don't frequent this site as much as I do the site and leave comments. I do read, but sometimes miss a lot of the responses and additional postings to related stories. What caught my eye was that I saw Lisa's (guest) post and wished to leave a message and then found your nice comment too.

First, I wish to say Miss not, you are very much welcome. If you have questions please ask and I will try to answer further.

Second, finally but not least, dear Miss Lisa (guest). I would also like to thank you for your wholehearted agreement compliment.

Today, I received a double nice gift from two very nice people, and I thank you both for your lovely comments. You made my day even better. ❤

With Appreciation & Blessings, --Abby

Hello... I agree wholeheartedly with Abby. You should take your time to grow up, but another thing you might consider as a choice as you grow is to use it to help people heal. A good healer has many of the traits of a good psychic. Doing Reiki could help you to get things into a controllable order. This is what I found anyway. But then I wasn't 11 when I realised. Looking back through my life, strange things certainly happened to me then, but I didn't really pay it much attention. Abby is right, just when you are ready. Don't rush things.

Again, my opinion, do with it what you will. Light and love Lisa

You are special in the way that you may be able to communicate with the deceased. I wish I had that gift (that is, if you wish to call it that) but you are absolutely right to feel scared of your powers at the moment. Never mind, I would have too. Maybe, as you grow older, you may be able to manage it better and Iwould imagine that it would grow with you, if you choose this path.

All the while, I pray for you.

hi, I was wondering if someone here could give me an explanation about something. I have been meditating a lot and developing my intuition and psychic abilities. Doing the chakra training, the whole nine yards. Things have been going pretty good, and I've been able to do astral travel as well as lucid dreaming... I can direct my energy to any part of my body that I choose... The only thing I don't understand is that there's a knot that has developed on my forehead, and it's directly in the center of my head... It's located in the area where the third eye is said to exist... I was wondering if there was some kind of meaning to this, or reason that it was there... It doesn't hurt or anything, it just appeared and now it's just there... Any help would be appreciated, or a direction to some place online that might explain what it means... Please email me because I don't know when people respond, and I don't want to miss what anyone has to say... My email address is: c2n2c2 [at] : Thanks again...

Oh, and Jord, "young man" is incorrect. It would be "young girl". I think I should put that on my page...

I- say you have no choice.

You've been choosen.

The gift doesn't stop.

Keep listening.


When your ready - to use the gift - Move over...
Sylvia Brown.

I have been to many psychics. Don't know why...
just love this stuff.

Well,, If you feel like doing any psychic free
readings. You can do a free reading on me...

Like will I ever get a better job or will I
ever marry a rich man or marry at all?

Like, I said you would be helping me... A lot...
use that gift. I wish I had it.

God bless you, young man. You are in self-conflict of yourself. This gift is yours, and if you don't feel comfortable around other things that involve using this gift then there's no way you can share it. I say just keep it to yourself and don't share it if you can't handle it. You can get in a lot of danger by embracing the gift, but I don't reccommend pushing it.

I completely understand. Ever since I was a little girl I have seen things that others could not, I knew things that were yet to come, and I had dreams that would happen later in life. I am not saying that you should use your gift right now. You have to be comfortable with your self. You need to accet your gift before you can embrace it. Thankyou Rosebud :)

Dear not,

You handle being psychic like you handle everything that happens to you in life, you handle it as it comes and with your best ability.

Being young is a time to enjoy life and have fun, it is not your responsibility to save anyone else or save the world. Growing up right now is your main concern and focus, and it is as it should be. It takes more than enough from a person's young life and energy to deal with maturing and the simple, ordinary things in life. You may wish to keep a journal for those feelings and thoughts. Certainly ask questions, but do your own research after you have those normal everyday things and chores out of the way. Your gifts are always with you and will be there when you choose for them to awaken. You are always in the right place and in the right time to learn what you need to know at that moment. The knowledge comes when you are ready. Do not be impatient, enjoy the time you have now at this present moment. By the way you are not a label (a psychic, a disease, a problem, an accident, well you get the picture), you are a spirit living in a human body experiencing being human. Take each day as it comes and live it to the best of your ability. Observe, listen, ask questions, do your research and homework, take care of yourself and most of all be responsible for yourself and your choices.

Only my opinion, take all, some or none of what I say, Blessings, Abby
