Regardless of everyone's religious background, sex, race or age, I think we could all agree that there is something different going on in the world today. I'm not even speaking of terrible events like suicide bombings, school killings, or repeated natural disasters in the same area. I'm talking about the increase in supernatural phenomenon and the fact that the world is becoming more openly interested in it.
Years ago, shows like Supernatural and Medium would have been considered far off in left field. But more people are now taking these types of situations seriously. When you have a well known and respected talk show host featuring a psychic on the show every week, you know the tide has shifted. And as much as things are changing, there is still that stigma attached to people that are different.
I find myself trying to figure out a name for what is going on with me. Most people I have come across in life can say, "I can see spirits", "I can move things with my mind", or "I can see the future". But what do you call it when you can see, hear, and smell spirits? And walk into a house or room and immediately tell what kind of "feeling" the place has? And dream about future events, the answer to questions you have asked yourself earlier, or what is really going on in the mind of someone in your life? And you can pick up on people's emotions and absorb them yourself? And see what is really behind the mask that people present to the world? I have ALL these things going on in my life, and some others that are just too numerous to mention.
What do I call myself? And why are most of these things presenting themselves now, after I have already been on the earth 30 years?
I have noticed while reading the comments and stories on this site that the gifted seem to be younger and younger. I'm surprised at the number of teens feeling alienated and confused at the supernatural events taking place in their lives. I look at my own children; all four of them have some sort of gifting. Some have it stronger than the others, but they are all gifted, nonetheless.
How many others parents out there are confused as to why they hear their child talking to "someone" in an empty room? Wonder why little Jimmy refuses to stay in his room at night? Or are curious to know how little Eliza knew that grandma had passed away before anyone had a chance to tell her? Are these parents, who know nothing about the supernatural, or probably have denied the fact that they themselves are gifted, able to raise such special children? How are these kids being treated at school and elsewhere by others that find them "strange"?
I've read up on Indigo adults and children, and the new Crystal children. If these things are correct, I can only wonder what is taking place behind closed doors across the world. I think the veil between the natural and the supernatural is thinning.
People, like me, who had no real prior knowledge of anything besides the here and now, are being thrust full force into another way of "seeing" life. I look at that movie "The Sixth Sense" and I see how no one could see what was really going on with that patient until after he killed himself. People that we call crazy, are they really crazy? Or can they just see things that others can't? How lonely and terrifying it must be to suffer alone and have no one believe you.
Does anyone else see what I am trying to convey here? I really would like to know what is going on, but more importantly, why? As a child I was an empath, but all these new things just avalanched on top of me in my late 20's. I don't regret receiving them, but I'm curious to know why I have them now, and why so many different gifts? Is anyone else going through this? What about others in the world?
Obviously people are aware of it; the Japanese have so many movies about this phenomenon. I was watching "The Eye" and was just amazed at how they captured the sense of seeing so well. I remember my eldest daughter, who is now 11, telling me once when she was 3, that she saw a man standing over her while she was lying down on her nap mat. She said, "Mommy, he was surprised!" I asked her what he was surprised about. What she said next sent a chill up my spine. "Mommy, he was surprised that I could see him!"
