I grew up in a religious household (Missouri Synod Lutheran) and attended parochial school from K-12. Seeing spirits from the tender age of 3 was difficult. I was taught in school, church, and home that what I was seeing, feeling, hearing, and sensing was wrong. I fought with the rationale, my sanity and my religion and it wasn't until I was in my late 20's when I decided to consult my minister.
As I sat down across from the man of the cloth. His eyes looked into mine with wonder. I was the good girl of the school and the church, a good student, active in youth groups, the choir, the band, drama, varsity sports - an All American Girl - so the reason why I was sitting across from him wringing my hands profusely confused him. Not knowing how to begin, I merely blurted out my confession. I see ghosts. I see angels. I see spirits. And they communicate with me. My minister looked at me without expression and asked me to explain more in depth to the degree of communication. At that moment his son came through. A son I never knew he even had. A son nobody in the parish knew he had and who he had lost. Tears shone in his eyes and he hugged me, giving me his blessing to pursue the work he believed I was given by God. It sounds oh so simple. I was given a blessing therefore go forth and do. But my programming from childhood wasn't easy to break. I continued to consult with him and he would counsel me, sometimes in return I would counsel him. He told me that it wouldn't be easy, me being who I was, but that if it were easy everybody would do it. He also cautioned me on the types of people who would try to ridicule me, play theology Jeopardy with me and mock me. After all, what isn't seen or understood is often feared.
Becoming comfortable with my gift has taken an awful long time. Everybody has the ability to "see", you just have to open yourself to it. Being psychic is not a super power nor does it make anybody extra special.
I am a wife to a wonderful man (Chuck) who accepts me for who I am, mother of two of the best young adults anyone could ask for and friend to two of the best step-daughters. Our life resembles a sitcom. Don't believe me, check out my Facebook. In 2017 we moved to our dream home with a big front porch, surrounded by wildlife, ponds, lakes, and woods. I love gardening, baking, cooking, reading and writing. I am your everyday empty-nester mom, and even as adults they really can't get away with anything.
Nothing in life is random, including you reading this right now.
