Born This Way

I was born with my gifts.   I haven’t always known that I am intuitive.  I have some flashes of memory from early childhood.  I shut it all down at an early age.  There are a number of reasons for that.  First, spirit communication to a child can be very frightening.  No one openly talked about such things, at least not at my house.  I remember hearing in church that talking to spirits was evil.  I pushed it aside. It was a survival mechanism. I wish I could have been myself and not feared what others were thinking.  I learned that my parents weren’t open to such things.

I grew up with religious parents.  My siblings and I not so much.  I found religion to be a bit confusing and when questions were asked , “Lord Almighty!”  It was lecture time.  If I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times, the christianity speech.  My parents were passionate about their beliefs and I respected that.

What I am passionate about is my kids and teaching them that there is nothing wrong with expressing our god given talents.  They don’t have to tell people about their gifts or mine if they don’t want to.  I just don’t want them to hide or feel like they have to hide who they are .  They have nothing to be ashamed of as some people would have them believe.  After all, I was born this way.

  1. There is a strong belief, like the one you mention in your post, that such god gifts are sinful or evil or wrong. I see no logic in that, ever. To be religious (in the true sense), to have a belief and to follow it, is fine, but to judge others never is, in no religion, in no manner.
    Am happy your children have a free environment at home. It’s very essential, I believe.

  2. Amy, would you take any stock in the theory that this gift comes from a plane to which we all might have access if we were open to receiving it?

      • Well, I think I lean that way; that is, that it is a kind of frequency, like radio, and if one isn’t tuned to it, one only gets static, and sometimes it comes in crystal clear. (This is how it seems to work with me?) Only where’s the dial to tune it in with? Is it a confluence of undefinable circumstances that makes hones the signal?

  3. since i was a kid, i was the “special” one.. you know the one with all the theories… that my brothers would laugh at.. and i’ve also seen images in my mind that i simply didnt believe… until years later.. it all happened.. and the past year, i started to meditate again and have come ou.. to my friends… and well…

    i think it is a gift if from the good if we use it for the good. i believe that we are all equal. and what we have, others have it too.. maybe not in the same area but we are all born with what fuels our fire.. :) i can write, but i cannot draw… [just a scary stick drawing.. ] but others can… its jsut a matter of other people using it or making it dormant … i could be wrong.. but then.. i could also be right. lol.. i am having fun at your page.. !! :)
