So You Think you May Be Psychic? How to Live with Your Gifts

As someone who does what I do, both in media and with private clients, I often receive the same question multiple times in a day: “I’m having Psychic Experiences, and I think I may be a Psychic / Medium / Sensitive. How do I deal with this?”

This can be a daunting feeling, if one feels that they are “all alone” in these experiences. How to deal with these abilities and not feel overwhelmed and isolated because of them, is a problem that has often plagued spiritually sensitive people from early ages onward. Many consider these gifts to be “curses”, based upon a lack of experience in dealing with the gift coupled with a prevalent amount of religious dogma in our Western Society.

If you ever get a chance to watch “Psychic Kids”, even in re-runs, I feel those who are questioning would learn a lot from the show – I know that as an adult, I sure have!! I didn’t have anyone to help me out as a kid, with any of these abilities. I was raised in a very traditional Evangelical Christian home in Montana, though my grandparents, who were Italian Catholic, were rather mystical about spirituality. Having no one to discuss these aptitudes with can be scary, although the entire Psychic Phenomenon has become far more mainstream in the past five years. Not having enough information on how to deal with these aptitudes can sometimes be terrifying, when, in reality, the “Psychic situation” is a very workable one.

If you’re a person questioning what you can be doing with your own spiritual gifts, the first thing I need to do is help you “de-mystify” what you are going through, as believe it or not, and certainly not to dismiss your struggles in any way – but what you are going through is very common for people who are “open channels”. This may be through Psychic experiences, or Mediumship, or Empathy, or all of the above.

I often receive letters where people are regularly seeing and hearing deceased family members. What they are experiencing, though it can be interpreted as very scary (because often we are not given support in how to deal with it) is actually not a curse. I promise you, it’s not. It’s a Mediumship Aptitude, and without someone to listen to the experience, and help you as a child, it would be natural that you would be very, very afraid of these visitors who always seemed to be around, and would appear to be “tormenting” you, when in fact – many of them are simply seeking help as well. I, too, see and experience spirits, and their emotionality. This ability to do so has been documented in many world religions. In the Christian religions, the figure Elijah saw and talked to all sorts of dead people  — so did Enoch.

The Mediumship Aptitude is not a curse, but an “extra antennae” that allows you to pick up what others cannot see or hear. The best I can tell you when dealing with any extra-sensory gift is this – the first thing to do is to accept that you are “wired” with some “extra sensors”, and look at it like a mechanical issue, rather than a “curse”. If we decide that something no longer is frightening, and understand what it is, then immediately, it begins to be less scary.

If you have a spiritual aptitude that allows you to have “extra sensors”, and these “extra sensors” pick up human beings who once had bodies, but don’t anymore, who sometimes are confused, or lost, or simply choose to stay here, after their bodies expire. These humans are the same as you or me – they just don’t have a “flesh suit”, or a body, like we do. You see, every living creature on earth, while in physical residency on this earth, is required to wear a body, or a flesh suit – just like an astronaut would wear a space suit. A body is the “necessary outfit” for our soul to be able to function here, to pick things up, walk around, reproduce, lol – you get the jist. So, though the disembodied person standing in front of you may seem a bit shocking, it’s very important to remember that these spirits are JUST people. They may startle us, or they may “feel weird”, because without a body, the soul actually has an electromagnetic field which is a little uncomfortable to experience for those of us in a body. And, if it makes you feel any better, WE feel weird to spirits for the same reason. Spirits are actually on a different vibration, or frequency , than we are, and just like putting your feet on a massager that vibrates at a different rate than your foot, spirits are literally “vibrating” at a higher frequency than we are , while we are in a physical body. They are moving a bit faster than we are 9with respect to particle Physics), which is why, often, they can’t be seen to by the naked eye. Anyway, because of this “vibration”, what we feel as “scary”, is literally, just science – it’s the fact that these poor folks without a body are vibrating faster than we are, and it just feels weird, in the same way that static electricity feels weird against your skin. Do your best not to be frightened by the way that they feel. It’s simply EMF – an electromagnetic field. It’s a real, detectable thing that paranormal investigators use EMF meters to locate spirits with. Even non-Psychic people can detect EMF, and high EMF fields can actually cause nausea, paranoia, hallucinations, and skin irritations – and, to boot, EMF is naturally occurring, in electricity. People who don’t ground their wiring well enough have too much EMF in their homes.

So far, we’ve covered that:

1) These entities are just people, without bodies, so there’s no need to fear them.
2) They feel weird for an actual scientific reason – because they give off an electromagnetic field, which living humans are sensitive to.

Now, the third thing to keep in mind is that with Mediumship often times (but not always) comes the Empath ability – and as an empath, you will tend to soak up, or “feel” these entities’ emotions. However, just because you CAN soak it in, does not mean that you have to. When you feel those washes of emotionality come over you, imagine the emotion like a big ball in front of you, and imagine yourself simply rolling up on top of the ball. You can feel it beneath you, but you are not letting the ball roll THROUGH you. Observe the emotion, recognize that it does not come from you, and refuse to experience it. As an “open channel”, you have the slight challenge of teaching yourself how to CLOSE the channel, rather than OPENING it, which is what most people attempt to do. You can close the channel by simply separating yourself from the emotion, and making a conscious recognition that it doesn’t belong to you. You can even say, “This emotion doesn’t belong to me, and I’m not going to participate with it.” You may feel a little sad, or a little mad, but please keep in mind that YOU have 100% control over whether or not you allow yourself to “go down that emotional path” with these entities. Remember, just because you CAN doesn’t mean you HAVE TO. So, to recap:

1) These entities are just people, without bodies, so there’s no need to fear them. You wouldn’t fear the people standing in the grocery store line with you, even if they had a Halloween mask on, right ?
2) They feel weird for an actual scientific reason – because they give off an electromagnetic field, which living humans are sensitive to.
3) Just because you are picking up an emotion, does not mean you have to absorb it. Say out loud to the person (without a body) who is in front of you, “These are not my emotions. You need to back off.”

The hard habit to break is not feeling like a victim in all this, as when we are children and feeling helpless within these spiritual aptitudes, we often do feel like victims. If we are not taught how to responsibly deal with this stuff, then as adults, we wrongly continue feeling like there is nothing we can do about any of it, but that is the way that our “inner child” is looking at the situation.

When our adult comes to the table, the truth is that we have 100% control over how much we participate with these entities, and how much we feel from them. If you’re not in the mood to deal with them, you can simply say: “You can’t talk with me right now. I’m sorry. You have to leave.” And make a conscious choice to “disconnect” from them, and not engage them. Just like you would tell a stranger who was in your home to get out. You’d talk for a second, then you’d walk away. Remember that you have 100% control over this ability. So to recap:

1) These entities are just people, without bodies, so there’s no need to fear them. You wouldn’t fear the people standing in the grocery store line with you, even if they had a Halloween mask on, right ?
2) They feel weird for an actual scientific reason – because they give off an electromagnetic field, which living humans are sensitive to.
3) Just because you are picking up an emotion, does not mean you have to absorb it. Say out loud to the person (without a body) who is in front of you, “These are not my emotions. You need to back off.”
4) You are not a helpless victim of this wonderful spiritual aptitude — you have 100% control over how much you choose to participate with these entities, even though it may take a little practice in how to “not engage them”. You can say out loud, “I know you’re here. I’m busy, and you’ll have to move on.” And then stop giving them any focus. The last part is the hardest, because it demands that we simply choose not to fall back into the inner child’s “fear consciousness”. Remember –No person without a body has any authority over you.

The last and most important step is to FULLY EMBRACE who you are, and how you are wired, because these gifts don’t go away, and until you fully make peace with this “extra sensor”, it will continue to be the “unsettled piece” of you, that you will fear. But there’s nothing at all to fear. Who you are, and what you are able to do, is beautiful. Even if no one has helped you overcome the fear of living with it. Now, we are going to move this last step to the front of the line, so your five-point checklist, as living with a Medium, is:

1) FULLY EMBRACE that this gift is not a curse, but an “extra sensor”, and what you are able to experience is not be feared, as a child would fear it, but embraced as an adult would embrace extra tools in their tool kits.
2) These entities are just people, without bodies, so there’s no need to fear them. You wouldn’t fear the people standing in the grocery store line with you, even if they had a Halloween mask on, right ?
3) They feel weird for an actual scientific reason – because they give off an electromagnetic field, which living humans are sensitive to.
4) Just because you are picking up an emotion, does not mean you have to absorb it. Say out loud to the person (without a body) who is in front of you, “These are not my emotions. You need to back off.”
5) You are not a helpless victim of this wonderful spiritual aptitude — you have 100% control over how much you choose to participate with these entities, even though it may take a little practice in how to “not engage them”. You can say out loud, “I know you’re here. I’m busy, and you’ll have to move on.” And then stop giving them any focus. The last part is the hardest, because it demands that we simply choose not to fall back into the inner child’s “fear consciousness”. No person without a body has any authority over you.

You do have guides and angels, and they look after you. This gift you have can be used for HUGE amounts of good. You can help police solve crimes by being able to speak to the victims who have passed over. You can help bring closure to families who hurt. And you will develop in no time the ability to “close the Psychic blinds” when you don’t want to engage these entities, just as you would choose to hang up the phone with someone you were speaking with, that you were done talking to. I went through what you went through, and I trained myself, all on my own, to do what I described to you, and it made all the difference in the world. This advice is equally sage for Clairvoyants. Sometimes, the things we seeing the future aren’t always happy. Simply remind yourself that you are peering through “the blinds in time”, and seeing action that your current timeline has not yet caught up with. Keep in mind that the future is also malleable. Also realize that you, as a Psychic, are not responsible for saving the whole world. That’s an guilt-ego-issue that many people who are struggling with these aptitudes will wrestle with. You can only do what you can do. None of us are God. As long as you do your best, you’re well within your duties as a spiritual worker.

Yes, sometimes situations can seem intense. There are bully spirits, but just get right in their face and tell them to bug off, just like you would a person. If you ever run into a Chaotic dark entity, or a Demonic, I will tell you that no matter what our individual faiths are down here on earth, those entities are afraid to the core of their being of Jesus, and by invoking Jesus, and Michael the Arc Angel in the name of Jesus, you’ll send that darkness packing. Jesus doesn’t care if you’re Wiccan or Mormon or Catholic or nothing at all – just as long as you call Him in if you need Him. Both He, and Michael, are here to help. (Sheesh, Jesus was the original paranormal investigator and Demonologist!😉 If you feel uncomfortable with this, then call a priest. They’re very comfortable with “kicking the behind” of darkness. It’s their job. Demons are not to be feared, as they eat fear, and no one wants to be a Demon buffet, and they are to be dealt with a little differently than you would deal with a negative once-human entity. Think of Demons like a shark in the water. It’s very unlikely that you will ever see a shark, or of you do, that the shark will attack you, but be mindful if it’s swimming too close.

I hope this helps you. Other than what I’ve relayed, it’s just a simple slight re-adjustment in how you look at how you’re wired – a choice you make, to stop looking at how you were made as a ”curse”, which is negative, and looking at it as a “gift”, which it is, once you get your groove with it and practice setting boundaries with these spirits, just as you would with your own child. Mediumship and Clairvoyance are both the types of gift that when employed correctly, can help many, many people, if you simply practice applying those five bullet points, and get comfortable with them.

You can do this. God doesn’t make mistakes, and doesn’t make junk😉, and never gives us something that we can’t handle. So clearly, you’ll be able to take the “five-point challenge” and succeed! Remember – no matter how “creeped out” you feel – it’s just a feeling. It’s not the reality of the situation. And once you re-train yourself out of that child’s perspective of fear, pretty soon, it’s just “a day in the life of a Psychic Medium”, and someday YOU’LL be passing on your own version of this to someone who needs help !

Take care, embrace and rejoice in how you’re made because it’s extraordinary and perfect, and shine brightly !!

    Vosloo Neighbours using voodoo on you
    I started hearing voices in my head and I started to think I was getting sick or nerves break down you know.
    I told my wife and friends but they all just said, that you needed I break you over worked and shit like that and I keep telling them its people that doing this and they insisted that I should go to a doctor for a check-up.
    I went to hospitals private doctors in and out of hospitals, they keep saying there is nothing wrong with you, did all kinds of test and everything.
    The voices in my head keep threatening me , tormenting me and would say things like , I want to destroy your life and want 10,000 rand ,I am going to doekoem (voodoo) your family . I want to control you.
    They would say things like we beating this doll that is you and you could feel the hits (impacts) on your body and they would laugh and laugh. Every night they would wake me up and start shouting and screaming in my head and beating me. Then they would make sounds like they under your bed and stabbing you. They would do this every knight.
    Remember you scared freak out of your mind, you cannot think clearly. Remember your mind is being attack. You couldn’t go for help or talk to anybody especially a voodoo doctor they would attack you and watch you’re every move.
    It was like you being prisoned in your own mind you cannot think cause you to scared.
    So I decided to went to the nearest church and they would attack you mind trying to scare you and keeping you away from church. Telling you things that we going to kill you and it’s not going to work, there’s no help nothing they can do.
    A sister in church that had a gift prayed for me and told me that this people wanted you ill off you head (crazy).
    I then sold my house and moved away but they still keep on attacking me every night and day 24/7 Telling me things that, we were teaching voodoo on you and your wife and I was standing right in front of you and stare in to you face and that is how I voodoo you. You don’t know who we are.
    As I am still under attack and afraid, I went to work and didn’t talk to anybody and went straight home after work and again didn’t tell anyone about this cause I was scared and my family would not believe me . Everything you do, they would tell you things like your car won’t start this wound work that won’t work everything you do they would comment on it trying to put you down.
    Then as they were beating me I become stronger and started to figure things out for myself, breaking their rules, learning their voodoo tricks that they using on me and started to fight back. Then I found out that they were infect teaching/showing people how to do voodoo and then they would try to blackmail you for a 10,000 rand

    The reason why I telling you this is because I don’t want it to happen to anybody ells and that any one ells would fall into the same trap.

    Danielle, I forgot, the picture I spoke of is on this site too.

    • danielleegnew says:

      Roy, is this profile photo one of the light-people photos that came on your phone? This actually looks like angelic life, whatever it is, lol! Great picture!!

      • Roy Milton says:

        Danielle, Lisa who is on the Facebook site had the following to say about the picture. What I didn’t tell you about my mom is that three months before she died, she saw my dead father. I walked into her home and she was sitting in her chair crying. She told me that in front of her appeared my father standing there with his arms crossed. The way she described his face was stern, or impassioned. She took it as though he was waiting for her. Then he began to disappear from his feet up. My mom was very alert, and not given to making up things. She was clear headed as she told me this.

        MOM’S IMAGE

        Lisa Gallegos: My feeling is that your mother is rejoicing at her expansion and freedom.Yellow aura meaning is that she is feeling a great deal of joy and freedom, and that she is no longer attached to anything earthly.Yellow colors relate to a sense of awakening and inspiration. I love that she shared this with you,and you were obviously in perfect vibrational alignment to receive it.🙂

        Me: Wow Lisa, I’ve never been given the color explanation. I just thought it was pretty. She was very tired of life here. Six months before she died, I came over to see her. She had been crying. I asked what was wrong. She said she had been sleeping and when she woke up, she saw my dad, who had died four years before standing in front of her. His arms crossed. Then he began to disappear from his feet up. She insisted it wasn’t her imagination and she wasn’t dreaming it. Six months later, she joined him.

        Lisa: your dad knew she was tired & was calling her forth to make the transition.She was worried about leaving her loved ones though, as many are. That is why she came to comfort you,and she is happy that you know she is better than fine. Your mother is shining pure & BEAUTIFUL!

      • danielleegnew says:

        Wow, Roy, this is fantastic! Lisa sounds like she really has a tie to the image in the photo, and how wonderful to receive those words from her!! I agree with her about the rejoicing of your mother. What a terrific affirmation that your parents are safely on the other side, living life there to the fullest :)!

    Hello Danielle, I just signed up here. I found it through the ex-jw site. When I was a Witness, I would never have believed in such things. Even if something happened to me, I would have dismissed it, or said it was Satan. However after leaving the WT, I’ve had some unusual experiences connected with my mother and fathers death. After my father died, three days later I smelled his cologne with was Old Spice. This was all he ever wore. After my mother died, one week later I received on my cell phone six pictures of a light figure in the form of a human. You can see these if you go to my profile on the ex-jw site. A week after she died me and a couple of friends were having a yard sale. After the yard sale we were sitting outside when the my mom’s phone rang. My girlfriend went to answer it and said no one was there. She didn’t know that I had disconnected her phone a week before. She said that when she was there alone the previous day, the phone rang and no one was there. I went in and tried the phone and nothing. I then called her phone from my cell and the recording came on saying the number was disconnected. Before my mom died, I had asked her if it was possible for her to contact me, do so. I believe she did.

    • danielleegnew says:

      Hey Roy, what a terrific recount — thank you for sharing that with everyone! You hit a very important point — had these occurances happened while you had a particular religious belief, you would have dismissed them, yet this is a classic instance of the spirits being able to come back and let us know that they have transitioned well, and that they are right where they need to be, and okay. The smelling of cologne is a common way that the spirits of our loved ones are able to communicate their temporary presence, to let us know that they are okay. Three days after my grandma passed away, I smelled her perfume very strongly, and it was accompanied by a sense of great peace. The photos of the light being — wow, you may have a photo of at least one of your angels, or perhaps even your mom, sending photos from beyond, and the “call from beyond” is another common occurance when spirits have peacefully transitioned, and they wish to let us know that they are okay. People often report the phone ringing and either the loved one’s voice saying “I’m olay”, or in the instance, a disconnected phone that belonged to your mom, ringing. We certainly don’t “die” just because our body wears out and stops functioning. We return to “Heaven”, a “different dimension”, however anyone wants to look at it, but it’s where we return in our native energy form. It’s a beautiful place housing beautiful spirits :)! What a gift you were given, to be able to know that both of your parents are just fine, on this new leg of their journey :)! Thank you for sharing your story!!

      • Roy Milton says:

        Thank you for your reply Danielle. The site I mentioned was a facebook site for ex-jw’s http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1315794554&sk=info#!/home.php?sk=group_169827959711258&notif_t=group_activity

        A girl by the name of Luanne who is on the site who was a Jehovah’s Witness posted your site and it intrigued me. Yes the profile picture here is the one I speak of. I actually got six pictures which were all about the same. At first I started deleting them, thinking they were a malfunction of my cell phone. I’m not at all surprised that my mom was able to contact me. She was very intuitive herself, and had some dreams that came true. I realize that spirits use our five senses to contact us, and sometimes our sixth sense. I wrote a book of my journey in and out of the cult and the link to my webpage is truthorconsequences101.com

      • danielleegnew says:

        Thank you for the links! Im sure everyone here will enjoy looking at the photos! And I’m thankful to Luanne for posting my blog over there, as it brought to us a very wonderful recount of the other side, as well as spirit photos – how magnificent! Thank you again for sharing :)!!

  4. Oh Danielle……Luv, Luv, Luv your new Blog! You are totally correct when you say “GOD does not make mistakes.” He most certainly put “The Light” in you so that you may share your many gifts with others to improve their quality of life. I adore your talents my friend…….As Always, Roxie

    • danielleegnew says:

      Hi Roxie, thank you so very much! My Grandma always used to say: “God doesn’t make junk, pal!”😉 And I’d have to say, I agree. I appreciate you reading🙂 !!

  5. You’re welcome🙂

  6. This is an excellant article. I especially like that you told people that they are not required to engage with spirits, just because they showed up.

    One of the more empowering things that my mediumship teacher taught was that you could set the rules for how you engage. You could say “not in the bathroom” or “no showing up in a disturbing condition”. You could set “office hours” , as it were for contact.

    Thanks for posting this
