The Sad Man I Walked Away From


As you can see from another post of mine, I work at a casino, as a Security Officer. I see a lot of people. This week on CNN they ran a story of a young man who was injured in Iraq by an IED, I believe. His parents were accused and convicted of embezzling over $50,000 "on casino trips". (As well as another $100,000 more on other stuff.)

It was on one of these "casino trips" I had a psychic experience with the young man. I have no other proof to this, except for the co-workers N.,S.,B. And A. Who I told immediately. Who know about my talent.

Coming around the corner, I saw him in his wheelchair. I looked at him. He looked at me, not with his face and his eyes, but with his soul? Aura? Subconscious? I don't know, I just knew that he was aware of me on a different level. I looked at him and saw he was crying, the slow silent sad tears of one in great emotional pain.

I did not speak to him nor him to I. But I knew... I knew... That he KNEW! I did not know what he knew. Just that he did! Thinking back... Was it the money thing he knew about? Or just that he knows everyone thinks he doesn't feel or think or know.

Every part of my being from my conscious brain to my psychic-empathic 'part' wanted to kneel in front of him, take his hands and tell him that I knew! I know you know! I know everyone thinks you don't but I know you do! I just want you to know... That I DO KNOW!

It took every bit of strength I had to walk away. As a Security Guard, with tons of people and camera's/surveillance everywhere, I CAN"T just drop a big bombshell like that in the middle of the gaming floor! Especially such a paranormal one! DAMN!

I found a few of my friends right away and told them how bothered I was and that I have to tell them (his parents) that he knows! He remembers, and that his mind is beautiful and quite active, just his body can't convey that anymore. Except for the silent tears of an anguished man.

My friends reminded me of what I said earlier... You can't just run up to someone and tell them some "crazy" story like I "psychic-ly" know what your son who can't communicate knows. You just can't!

I kept walking past, drawn to him wanting to help but not knowing how.

Now after the story broke first in local papers and then as National news... Would it have helped if I had said something?

When I know I HAVE to help someone, when do you draw the line between your professional and your psychic knowledge? How can you balance this stuff?

I have had a rough time of it after that, doubting my "psychic-ness". Sadly, it was validated in part by the news story. I like to pretend I don't have it, because I don't want people to first believe I am crazy, second try to constantly question me about it and third because it hurts my soul to see and feel other peoples pain and not really knowing how to make it go away... But knowing that somewhere inside of me... I DO know how. If I let it.

How do you guys deal with this? I am 34 and I have had this thing since my earliest memories of talking to people no one else can see. (btw- I can't do that anymore. My oldest kid can though.)

I have always known what people were thinking and feeling. What they thought about me. Hearing their thoughts as though they were talking to me. How can you embrace this instead of being like me try to push it away?

I actually have consulted a "real psychic" who told me I had the gift as she did. She said things that shocked me... The same way I shock others with my accuracy. She said I HAVE to help people. I HAVE to... But how?

I do dabble in Runestones and my accuracy, according to the people I am doing it for is astronomical. I even am shocked when I tell them something, draw a random rune... And it says EXACTLY what I just told them.

It scares me sometimes. So, long winded story... But how do you guys deal with this? What would you have done?

Thank you Rich. That was exactly the kind of informative helping answer I was hoping for. I certainly do appreciate it. I need to figure out the psychic boundary, I have given a few people psychic readings and I love the hope I can give them. Usually I don't charge people, but sometimes think I should!;) I don't think I would even know how to do that!
My biggest thing, and my buddy N. Is ALWAYS telling me to STOP doubting myself and my abilities. I always wonder, "was I really that accurate? What if I'm not psychic but just have some sort of mental issue? Wow! What a coincidence!"
When I first started doing runes, I used a (pretty much) "runes for dummies" meanings. Very simplified. I made each one and I reached into my bag and wondered if in fact I was truly psychic. The rune I drew, simplified version mind you, said "you already possess the wisdom you seek". So I asked another question, and darned if I didn't pull the EXACT same rune. So stubborn me yet again asks the same question in a different way... And yes. I drew the same rune! 3 times in a row! Then I went and jumped into bed and told my husband.
It was cool yet supernaturally scary. I felt the runes and the power the magic between myself and the rune stones.
Perhaps, I am not weird because I am psychic, but weird because I constantly doubt myself.
SkyRealm you are very correct. Sometimes it takes someone to lay it on the line. It is in the past... Leave it there! Hakuna Mattata! Thank you!

Hello larinna,

How are you? I've been a practicing psychic for a while now and I've heard of psychics who state - you HAVE to help people. This is a debatable statement. Hearing peoples thoughts and feeling peoples feelings is a gift, which can give you many things, and give you a closer connection to friends and family members, that many people without the ability cannot touch with a 10 ft pole.

Personally, when it comes to involving psychic ability in work, in my opinion it's not a good idea. As you said it can appear very unusual to people in many positions. Although you knew what he knew, maybe he was desperately wanting someone to stop his parents? Maybe he just wanted you to pay attention to them, and that was his desperation you found in his eyes.

But on the opposite side, what if you had paid attention to them, and suddenly you were under surveillance because of your adamant attention towards them?

Seeing other psychics and helping people has always been a passion of mine. But in my opinion, it should be done with your free time, and not while at work. How to deal with it? Create a psychic boundary and remind yourself of your responsibilities and goals. As far as controlling it in public.

You'll find that life will give you many opportunities to use your ability to help people. You'll be the light at the end of the tunnel for some people. And they will seek your advice and readings as a beacon of hope for them to use in their lives of pain and depression.

It's almost like when you want to fall in love, when you want to fall in love, it never happens, but when you don't think about it, love falls in your lap. Finding people that need your beacon of hope is the same process. Remain calm, meditate and focus, and remain in an optimistic mood. This will give you a stronger and healthier aura, making people move towards you rather than away.

Blessed be,

1) I'm 16, so my advice may not be accurate.
2) I'm still devoloping empathic skills and are confused myself, cause I feel peoples irritation and unhappiness, and don't know what to do, because their emotions get all mixed with mine.
So...bear that in mind.
Well, if your meant to help people, then its as simple as following your conscience and helping them. I know a kid in my class whos completely anti-social, and who's real shy. I wanted to help him, but I didn't have the courage to strike up a conversation with him. Thats the problem, you have to have the courage to start a conversation with any random stranger, (which is easier said than done) There's nothing you can do now for that man, so stop worrying, and take a breath, God will take care of him, cause God's cool! Promise! πŸ˜‰
Next time, when you see someone upset, like if your walking on the road, try to strike a conversation which could start as easily as "accidently" bumping into the person, or asking directions (just a thought). As I said, its easier said than done. Just follow your gut, and the second you get the courage to walk towards him/her, you'll know what to say. Thats all I can think of. Hope this helps! 😊and keep well!
