Why do psychics see what they see? That’s (mostly) a rhetorical question.
And, as a psychic, I wish I had an answer.
For a long time, I’ve wondered why we “see” things about ghosts when the ghosts seem to reject our help.
Many ghosts seem to want us to roll back the clock, and we can’t do that. It’s frustrating. It’s why – in recent years – my focus has been on more tangible evidence related to hauntings: documented history, readings on measurement devices, and so on.
So, my advice to you is:
- Note the things you sense, with your five and six senses.
- But, when it’s a “sixth sense” experience, avoid digging deeply. You may be opening yourself to malicious energy and unkind spirits. You could be at risk.
- If you can’t seem to close that door, leave the site immediately. Don’t let other encourage you to remain open if you’re feeling uncomfortable. You’re not there to entertain others. (Some people seem to lose sight of that – no pun intended – when they’re with a particularly gifted psychic.)
A compelling, psychic prediction
This week, I wondered why so many psychics see the future, as well. It seems equally pointless.
Almost exactly five years ago, I visited Gavin Cromwell at home. He was living in the United States at the time.
On that day, he stumbled out from his bedroom, clearly under lingering effects of the medication he’d taken for an illness. So, I’m not sure he’ll remember the conversation we had.
On that day five years ago, he was distraught. He talked about a ferry that was going to capsize.
He thought it was in Asia, and he was sure hundreds of young people were on board and would be lost. He described them traveling from the mainland to a small island, not vice versa.
He talked about the ship turning onto its side for no apparent reason, and doing so, quickly. Gavin also mentioned the crew telling the young people to stay where they were because moving around could be unsafe. (At the time, I thought he’d borrowed that from a dramatization about the Titanic.)
Gavin kept asking why he was seeing something like that when he couldn’t do anything to prevent it. He asked me if I knew a way to prevent it, but I had no answers.
And then, Gavin’s predictions came true
Now, as the recent (April 2014) South Korean ferry disaster unfolds, every detail echoes exactly what Gavin said five years ago. Not just what I listed, above, but far more details, as well.
The problem is: That information wasn’t specific enough to be helpful. Gavin “saw” more than most psychics (including me) might have sensed, but not enough to say, “In five years, on such-and-such a date, a South Korean ferry carrying hundreds of students, en route Jeju, will be involved in a disaster.”
The vision upset Gavin… a lot. He was extremely emotional about it, and almost frantic to prevent the tragedy.
But, even with as many details as he “saw,” there was nothing anyone could do. He didn’t have a specific date or location.
If he recalls that prediction – and I’m not sure that he would, since he was taking medication and was barely awake when he conveyed that vision – I’m sure it would upset him to see that it really happened.
So, what’s the point of being psychic?
What I’m pondering today is why psychics see what they do.
- It’s rare that we can help spirits who seem to visit from beyond the grave.
- And it’s unnecessarily traumatizing to see a tragedy that can’t be prevented.
So, what’s the point of that kind of “gift”?
Rhetorical question, sort of. I’m not sure anyone can answer this.
But, as I watch details emerge in the South Korean ferry story, I can’t help recalling the accuracy of Gavin’s prediction and wondering why psychics “see” things like that.
