From the Archive-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. Amy, I love that quote by Einstein. I’m sorry to hear that your experience with Christianity was confusing b/c it isn’t. I agree with you…we should be accepting of the differences without judgement. Have a great evening!

    • Thanks Jeannie. What I still find confusing today is that is that if we all have the same God, why are there so many different churches (baptist for example) in my little town there are 3 different baptist churches. Can’t well just get along?

      • I wish. Remember, churches are built/run by people, and people are flawed. To me, Christianity is not about the churches or the people in it but my personal relationship with Him. I’ve learned that if you place your faith in people, disappointment will follow. My faith is with Him b/c it is He who I worship not the church or the imperfect Christians. Sorry for the long reply. Have a wonderful day Amy!

      • I do get hung up on the people part. Thanks for reminding me. Enjoy your day as well!

  2. As a child I felt myself to be handicapped or disabled by my intuition, as being myself was so NOT pleasing to my parents and close relatives. Interestingly, despite the widespread knowledge today that intuition and other psychic perceptions are valid, there are still those who not only can’t accept it, but if they get an inkling, they’re going to mess with you. Your children are so lucky to have you in their corner! :-)

    • Thank you! It has not always been easy, but how can I not defend my peeps. That’s my job. Thank you for commenting.
