A Curious Encounter

Is it possible that there are individuals who can “see” things that others cannot? The term “seer” is often used when describing an individual with this supernatural ability. Seers claim to possess the ability of premonition – foretelling the future. But, what about those who have the ability to see the past of others just by looking into their eyes or maybe even by a simple gesture like a handshake?

I have personally spoken with people who were quite adamant about having this special capability. They discussed how they were able to discern whether or not someone was trustworthy. Even going into detail about how they could “see” into the questionable individual’s past without actually knowing or ever meeting them.

At one of my book signings for my novel, The Spirit Within, I was graced by the presence of a sweet, elderly woman. Her eyes were gentle and kind. Her smile was genuine with her softly spoken words. After approaching the table where I was signing copies of my book, she began asking me about the synopsis of my novel. Her interest was welcoming with her charismatic ways. Then, this beautifully aging woman leaned across the table towards me, closing the gap so that our conversation could be heard by only us. “I can see things, you know.”  She said quietly. “Yeah?”  I smiled in return. Without saying a word, the woman nodded. Her focus was direct and I quickly got a sense as to where the conversation was headed. A brief moment passed before she continued, her eyes looking around making sure that no one was listening. She very quietly whispered to me, “You used to be a white witch.”  I gazed upon her with question in my eyes. “I’m talking about in a former life. You helped people.”  She said as she began backing away from the table. “Trust me, I see things that others don’t.”  The sweet lady spoke as she walked away.

Curiosity quickly consumed me because I found her rather interesting and wanted to converse with her more, but was unable to. Why did she feel the need to say such things to me? Who knows? But I know one thing for certain, that her words were heartfelt and with her came a wonderful, positive feeling. She definitely made a lasting impression on me that I will never forget.

  1. I have been called a lot of things and “seer” is on that list.

    WIth the other gifts, I meet someone and feel the totality of them in the moment.

    I feel their curiosities, their fears, their pains and their joys.

    Then throw in the other side jumping into you on occasion to deliver a message at the right time and place to change a life and well it gets weird.

    Then try explaining it to people and feeling their reaction and holding it for them so you can get through the explanation that settles their nerves and creates understanding.

    That’s what it’s like to talk to me on my end and I always feel what they go through on theirs.

  3. There is not doubt we are born with special abilities. Most of the time we are not aware of them, because we live in a “material world” that does not allow us to focus in the spiritual world or our spiritual inner man! The Bible says: we are made in
    God´s image! Not a flesh and bones body, but a spiritual one. God is a Spirit, says in John 4:24a.

    Our senses are so used to material living that our spiritual life is not taken seriously or totally rejected or unknown. We have spiritual abilities, that God wants to us to use for the light, not for darkness.

    It is also very important not to go after spiritual “sensations” without knowing what we are doing! The Ouija, spiritism, cards readings, futuretelling, withcraft etc, are very dangerous. They open windows into our souls and even mind allowing dark spirits to enter and do whatever they want to do in us and at the same time, allowing other spiritual entities the path to ur lives. Then, we speak in christian environment of “demond possesions”. That is why we hear about people being possesed and harming others and themselves!

    Only if we are guided by the spirit of God, can we search for spiritual maturity in God´s plan and ways.

    Be blessed today!

  4. Very interesting post. Empathic and Seer capabilities. You never know where or when little messages,such as was passed on to you, will make something “just click in place” later for you. You know, where you knew in the back of your head that little something and it makes more sense with that message.

    She sounded lovely. Maybe you’ll see her again.

  5. Great post! Sometimes my dreams come true. Not many people seem to understand. My mother always told me when it was happening to me when I was growing up that it was all in my head. But after telling my husband some of my dreams that later came true, I know that it is a real thing.
