I'm sure a lot of people have asked this question at one time or another, or are still asking themselves this question...
I happen to be one of those people.
So my question to all of you is, how exactly do you tell what your 'gift' is?
Let me start off my giving a bit of a background on myself and some experiences I have had (I apologize as it is quite long).
For about 3-4 years I have always felt 'followed' or a presence to the left side of me, I knew it was male, younger, and a physical description without ever seeing an actual apparition. I never felt harmed, but rather protected. I decided to consult my sister (a self-proclaimed clairvoyant) who introduced me to an ordinary deck of cards. She taught me how to use them as an aid in finding out who this person was. I.E asking questions, flipping over the cards, and determining a 'yes, no, definitely and maybe' depending on the suit of the card (I know, a little lame). However, I randomly started spitting out questions, a name, physical description, age at death, and how he died. (I can't explain how these thoughts, name, date etc, just came into my head, to this day I still have no idea and would love to know.)
I wrote everything down I had gathered from 'asking' the cards, and did some research.
After a day or two of research I found my guy. Everything I had felt and asked about, was dead on. I had a feeling of what he looked like, age, how he died, everything was correct. I saw a picture of him and nearly fainted.
I had also found out that the place he died was very close to my grandma's house (where my family went every Sunday)
When I started having this feeling of the 'presence' in August that year there was an awful car accident (down the street from my grams), for whatever reason it always upset me, for years after. After doing my research, the 'presence' I always felt was Nick, the kid who died in that accident. I was absolutely shocked.
Also, when I was pregnant I worked in the make-up industry, whenever I had clients that would be in my chair I almost always had 'word vomit' where I would just burst out with a name and how they died of my clients loved one who had passed on, as well as other information that I have no idea where it was coming from. I felt bad because a lot of the time, I would make them cry, but not an angry cry?
I had my daughter a year ago and I haven't felt Nick's presence nearly as strong, and I've only had a handful of experiences since her birth.
Does anyone have any thoughts or insight on what this could be? Or why or how? Lol. Any info and opinion would be amazing and well appreciated.
