In April of 1998, I just woke up one day predicting what would happen to the future of those around me. It was election season and my family was very much involved. In the heat of campaigns, candidates and political leaders would come to me desperate to know the outcome of their career.
Since then, a part of who I am has been awakened and I have began to explore and discover so much more about this gift I was given as an innocent child. They say that we also inherit these kinds of gifts from our ancestors. It is understandable. While my parents do not have such abilities, some of my relatives from both sides have. So one can roughly calculate how much amount of inheritance I have in my pot. I have two siblings. One does not have, in even a single ounce of him, an interest in anything that cannot be proven by science. The other one had been “trained” but it didn’t work on him.
I have been classified as a visionary fortune-teller because I was awakened without any form of material instrument. I have began predicting out of sheer picture or voice in my head. However, this has not limited me from exploring other ways to enhance my craft.
Growing up, I have explored different types of medium: clairvoyance, palm reading, tarot cards, playing cards, pictures, graphology, astrology, numerology, and a little bit of anything. I never study anything. It all just comes out naturally. I just know how to do it, without being taught. It becomes even more accurate when I simply focus, look within, and process the energy. By exploring, I mean simply asking anyone I know, “Can I try to read you?” And if anyone lets me then I will know that I can do it.
This gift I have is and will always remain a mystery. But I’ve realized some traits that somehow qualify one to receive and keep the power of divination. They say that it can be renounced. But as far as I am concerned, I am not renouncing it, at least not yet. I never asked for it but it was given to me. And for the longest time, it has been a part of who I am and I honor that.
Faith. There is one supreme being who is above all things in heaven and earth.
Truth. They only way to see truth is to be true to yourself and to everything.
Fairness. The gift must be used, not abused and misused.
Kindness. We are inherently good and we must not depart from this till the end.
In my next article, I might discuss the experience of living with the gift.
