It has been very interesting to read all of your replies. To those of you who can sense death, or know when someone will pass, you may not believe this, but I am green with envy!
I have only once brought through someone's dead relative when reading them, and only once met someone and known they had an illness that would kill them. One other time I knew someone was going to commit suicide. Both times when I knew in advance, my spouse told me not to interfere, so I did not tell the first person to go get checked by a doctor for the disease I saw and did not try to counsel the second one, despite psych being my field. I have felt very guilty ever since, and will not do that if I am ever given such knowledge again. He is not an empath and I should not have listened to him over my own gut feeling.
I have to admit I felt jealous reading what you all can do. I can easily see lies and even see a clear picture of the truth in my head when someone lies, but if I could have just one ability I wish it was to see the time of death. I am very anxious and have awful insomnia because I am severely ill and I cannot live alone. After 30 years,. of this disease, local friends have moved on and the very few who still live around here are still working all the time just like we do, since our life savings were all stolen by the bankers in 2008. My real f friends are all online now and do not live where they can help me until I can get into a nursing home. So. I worry a lot that my spouse will pass first, which would be a disaster. If I knew for sure I would die first, I would be about 150% less anxious. If I knew it was soon, I would be thrilled, since I live in a world of constant suffering. I am not afraid of death, but am very afraid of the process, since I know how grueling it can be. I guess I have a feeling I do not want to face that my spouse will go first, or maybe it's just an expectation that it will be that way, due to my having had such a hard life this time around. I do not see clearly when I am so emotionally involved.
I have had a reading by a local psychic who said she will never tell anyone answers to questions like that, since she thinks they don't really want to know.......she had told her own father he would die if he did not see a heart doctor. He would not listen, and died in her arms.
This post may not be relevant to some of you, but for those who regret having this ability, I thought it might help to know that for those of us who hear the time clock ticking ever more loudly, your ability may be very helpful and is indeed a gift of calmness for whatever time we have left.
love to all,
