My Thoughts About Our Purpose


I'm 18 years old now and have lived with my gifts since I was 12. But I can't help but wonder why me. For those of you who haven't read my other story let me give you some background information. I'm an empath, and can also influence the emotions of people around me. I dream the future, and can sometimes see it when I'm awake. When I get angry I can move things with my mind, and I always know when something bad is going to happen to a person. I can also see shadows, and they tend to gather around people that are about to commit evil or have bad things happen to them

I'm not complaining, I do enjoy having these gifts, but they can be a major burden at times. I'm always wondering why I can do these things, and why I have these powers (For lack of a better word.) I know others who think the same way, wondering if there is some higher purpose for us or If we are just freaks of nature. Is there a higher purpose for the psychics of the world?

The shadows I see are really scary. They always gather around a person who is about to commit evil, or around a person that is about to have something bad happen to them. I don't know what to make of them. Do they mean something? Or are they something from a different world?

If you have any thoughts, please let me know. I would really like to know your thoughts on this.

I can see aura, and I found people who had negative emotions attract dark shadows close to them, well, in my country, there's a belief, which says, people who had sold their life to the dark power, will be followed by the dark spirits until they die. I'm not really sure about this, but, maybe, you can think about it.

I personally think that the shadows are a more visual representation of premonition. Your brain is trying to tell you that something's going to happen, but instead of words, you see the shadows. Of course, that's just my theory.

i am too was being told a freak by someone. Some also say that I am a retard,crazy,fool and also a demon. Whenever that happens I felt sad because I thought that they think of me as a person who is not normal. Sometimes I got angry but I did not fight or say bad words with them instead I walk away. But sometimes if they are too much I can't control my temper any longer and so am saying bad words with them. After that I walk away and I tried to stayed away through them because to me they cannot understand people like us. Some I think of them as an enemy because I can sense evil to other people. But if I sense good to a certain person, I tried to make friends and I even make conversation to them.

In my opinion, our purpose is to take humanity to a higher level. Different types of psyhics would do this in different ways. An indigo, like myself (I am a 14 year old indigo from the USA, an empath, and a pathokinetic) would naturally tend to lean more toward the line of making peace. Psychics would be suited for their tasks; indigos can sniff out lies and share a collective conciousness to aid them in spreading peace, crystals can control emotions to placate others, psions can control forces, etc... Many great people in history have been doubted and ridicules in their time, and psychics are no exception. The purpose of any human being, psychic or not, however, is to end their life leaving this world a better place than when they began it.

I think you know that the shadows are ghost. You should try to warn the person who has a black shadow on their head. But then again they will think your a freak so try to warn them in some other way. We are all here to help people and in that way we can help them

Well... To answer your question, "why me?"
All human beings are born with the ability to do all of the things you have mentioned.
How is this possible? Through the pinaural gland in the brain. It causes an electric pulse to heighten your senses, and you can control it, with enough practice. Those who refuse to attempt to practice this are ineducated, or have chosen such a life path. Also, to those people that I am describing who are reading this, I am not..."dissing," or insulting you. It is probably not your fault that you do not believe in such abilities, for your mind has, likely, been corrupted by the media, and for such an occurrance, I give you my sympathy.
But, anyways, to answer your question more thoroughly...
Some people are born with their pineal, pinaural, something like that, gland open, and continue to subconciously increase their control over it. This would also be the case for me.
If you do now want to feel the feelings you are receiving as a result of your... How did you put it..."gift"... You can look up shielding techniques at a shielding website, and practice, and attempt to make a shield that can block unwanted thoughts.

Hope this helps you, and all others who read this, but were too shy to ask this question! 😁

I say outloud and repeat in my head "I will only allow good things into my awareness. I will only use my gifts for the greater good. If you have no purpose then you must leave now" and they do. I thank god I don't see shadows. I don't feel afraid because I stood up to something truely evil to help a mother and her child. I am here to do good. I am now an instrument of God... And I I say "leave" it is with /od's authority. There is no other way.

well I don't know if ill be of much help but with the dark energies or shadows say only those sanctified by God can come around me otherwise go back where you came from. Or you can say go to the light your place is not here. Protect your self with divine white light and call upon arch angel michel. We are here with a divine purpose to help others. Also look up indigo children and crystal children hope this helps!

Not so long ago I was in the same spot. I was wondering what all of this meant and why I had to be one of the chosen ones. I asked God to show me what the purpose of these gifts were and it came to me in a "dream" that night. I was in this blue space (the sky?) and there was a faceless figure speaking to me explaining to me that these gifts were from God and we are meant to use them for his purpose (good).
We are to warn others of events that are coming even if they don't believe, they will. Sometimes we see or feel things that are meant for us and sometimes for other people.
I have been told by Psychics that they cannot read me because I am blocking them. Probably because of fear of them telling me something that I have forgotten. They have, however, told me that I have a spirit that is centuries old and that I have abilities that I haven't used yet. Which I find hard to believe because I have had so much happen around me.
We are supposed to use these gifts for serving our fellow men and women. Every day I ask God to help me make it through the day and show me how to utilize these gifts. We can make a difference in others lives as well as our own. It seems that we, the gifted, are almost afraid to use them for fear of being ridiculed. Well, the days of slaying "witches" is long past. We are not witches, I know, but people find it hard to accept what they cannot understand.
We need to use these gifts to the best of our ability and pray for guidance from God on how to go about our daily lives. We shouldn't use them for selfishness or hurtful purposes or it will come back tenfold.
I wish you well in your journey and just want to leave you with this messege, Hebrews 5:1 For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
Thanks for your ear and Bless always!

No matter what brand one subscribes to, all humanity has a spiritual consiousness. "Extra" sensory ability is observed in about 15 percent of all vertibrates. Our purpose is to warn, bring wisdom to, and help those less able than us understand what happened to them;)

I don't think I can really help you, though I do want to just tell you that sometimes I get dreams about the future too, and though they are never clear, and not always right, I was wondering if maybe you could give me some insight as to what I should be looking for, since you have had 6 years of practice. Me, I'm only 13, and just starting to think I could possibly have a minor gift or two. When I get around to posting my experiences, could you please leave a commnt? I would greatly appreciate it.
As for your shadows-- I believe that they may be dark energies, that have such evil intentions, they are visible to you. The next time you see them, try to connect what you see with what your heart tells you- ths should give you a clearer picture as to what they are.
Good Luck.

Its interesting that lostgirl mentioned healing. Of course you know how Jesus and his disciples did the same thing, healing people in ways no one could understand. Maby that's our purpose, I know its mine. I had a rather interesting start to my psychic experiences and ever since its all revolved around God. I think I am supposed to be a prophet for God, I think we all may be.

Of course we have a purpose. We are able to reach out in way's other people can not and we are able to do great things with our gifts. Helping and healing are some of the main things a psychic must do because the world is a hard place for some and it is our job to help them along the way in what ever way we can.

Our purpose is to help others with the use of our special abilities.

It only seems to be confusing if it has no purpose because you are not using it to help others.

First understand what abilities you have, accept your special gift rather than to question it, then learn how to use it properly before using it to help others.

I'm 18 and will be 19 pretty soon. I also have empathy and future sight. I sometimes get in peoples heads when I get excited... My friends hate playing card games and word games with me. But there are always downsides to being able to see things others can't. I'd rather actually be more like the ignorant sometimes. And sometimes I am one of them... Lately my visions are in different ways... I recently can't figure out this one. "Nai Ron Tao" which I guess is like a mix of languages. Nai in japanese is death. Ron Tao I couldn't find. Nai can also mean there isn't/ doesn't have. If anyone can tell me something about it please. Sometimes numbers or letters or images just pop into my head and others I actually view what will happen for a few seconds. My visions haven't made much sense lately. And a student killed themself today. And I'm scatter shot lately. So everything is out of place in this paragraph so sorry lol.

Don't think 'why me?' think 'why NOT me?!' This is a gift that was given to you. Use it as one! Sometimes they work to your advantage and sometimes they don't. Just like everything else in your life.

And about those shadows... If they are crowding around someone who is about to do something bad, maybe this is a sign that you can prevent that person from doing it, or help someone else in danger.

Good luck

You can probably influence people who are highly suggestable. Influence isn't a bad thing, on some level that person realizes you speak with wisdom beyond your years. Even science recognizes that 90 percent of communication is non-verbal!

We are not freaks of nature. We are here to help others. Some are willing to accept and some, well, view us; like you said, "freaks of nature". I have been ridiculed for years from family and friends. Now the roles are reversed, because of what I have told them, no one else could ever know. And I do pass on messages from people who have moved on. So I think it all depends on the person, to whether how they want to utilize thier ability. I believe we are here to help everyone else understand.
