There’s no doubt my gift is cool, but it comes with responsibility I wasn’t prepared for. From my empath ability to my premonitions- nothing is easy. I can feel others’ emotions, but that doesn’t mean that I have a right to that knowledge. People still have a right to their privacy and emotions without having someone act on them without their permission. I can’t choose to not ‘feel’, so I deal with it however I can. I spend a lot of it pretending to be none the wiser to make others more comfortable.
Funny, I spent most of my life ignoring this part of me and now that I’m accepting of it- I still have to hide the gift. I’m not oblivious to the fact that there are non-believers, people who doubt me, people that dislike me personally apart from my gift, and folks that simply do not understand this. I feel it all. Folks are honest and say they just don’t want to know anything. It’s not my responsibility to change them, make them believe or make them like me- but I must respect their decision to not want to engage in any of this, so I never press.
I’m often asked, “What happens when you get a premonition of someone who isn’t interested in the knowledge?” That’s the moral dilemma for me. I’ve learned that with family & friends I have a responsibility to look after them but also to respect their wishes. I operate under the- “whatever-allows-me-to-sleep” rule. If I know there’s something major that’s going to happen and they are able to change it in order to avoid the occurance I will tell them. It will be their decision on what to do about it or to ignore me altogether- but I know, for me, I have this gift so I can help others. As mentioned before, everyone has freewill.
It is fun though. ☺️ When you’re chatting with someone and your BS meter goes off. It’s a huge responsibility to hold that kind of truth in. Or knowing someone is nervous around you in the work place when they are a higher rank than you. I giggle when folks at work say, “You must be psychic!” when I answer something before being asked. What’s not fun is knowing someone is cheating on their spouse and having to call them out on it because they asked you for help but they are with-holding the truth as a test. It’s heartbreaking when someone asks about a pregnancy and you know it’ll happen for them but first they’ll go through more heartache first. It sucks when your friend is upset at you and you feel their disdain for you at a gathering. I think of it as a blessing- some folks can’t tell at all. I just have to be careful not to share too much that I overstep boundaries.
Reality is that there’s a huge responsibility, but I’m learning to adapt to it. I deal with it by focussing people on the good, on hope and their blessings. I can’t protect anyone from life’s challenges that are truly meant for them in order to grow. It’s not for me to touch. I can just help make folks journey easier where I can.
