"Do You Have ESP Or The Gift From God"

I really don't know a lot about ESP, but I do know a little about the gifts of God. We are all blessed with gifts from God, but whether we realize it and use them in entirely a different subject. When I was fifteen ; I noticed that I could talk to younger people about incidents in their lives,and about situations that turned out good, because of my advice . I was always able to give out wise advice, with a positive return. I have always had a close bond with people and that might be because I genuinely love and cherish people. As I got older, I started having dreams or visions that sometimes come true, which wasn't good to me if they were bad dreams or visions, that came true.

To be completely honest;sometimes we are blessed with gifts that are kind of scary, I have had times when I didn't want to see things or know things, but the bible even says that with wisdom and knowledge brings sorrow sometimes. I thank God that I'm don't have a lot of dreams or visions that often, because I think the sorrow would be to much to bear. I pray a lot about things that I feel and ask God, to help me understand and interpret the visions and dreams and most times I can put it together where I can understand it. I have had at least three death and one death vision that I wasn't to happy about. The first one happen in Cleveland Ohio, when I was eighteen years old. The land lady and I were friends and some how we started talking about death and she said she wasn't afraid of the dead. That particular night, I went to bed and had a dream about a man that had been hurt; because his head was bandaged with white bandages, and he was lying down but he sit up and pointed at my land lady and she ran out crying from his presence.

At the time I had no idea what the dream was all about until the next day. I told my land lady about the dream and how she had ran out crying and we even laugh about it. That evening she came by upset and crying; she told me her father had died from a brain stroke, it was at that point; that the dream came crashing down on me. It literarly scared me so badly that I didn't ever want to dream again. I decided that I really didn't want to dream anymore. Four years ago, I had another dream this time it was about my uncle, I don't recall the exact dream but I know it was disturbing to me and the next day, which was my birthday, my uncle passed away. how strange is that, to have a relative die on your birthday. Then last year I went home to Louisiana to see my mom and check on her and when I was on my way back home to Arizona I had a vision of a black Hurst pass before my eyes,while I was awake and I try to rebuke things like that and not think about them. When I made it back to Arizona, I was told that my favorite uncle had cancer and about two weeks later my cousin Lucille; was diagnose with cervical cancer and I was hoping that they both beat the cancer, because I didn't want them to did because I loved them.

My cousin died two months before my uncle and he passed about a month ago, so my vision was fulfilled. December 31 ,I dreamed about a friend of mines daughter and she was crying in my dream and I was concern that something was wrong with her mother. I called and wished` my friend a Happy New Year and to find out how she was doing, she told me she was find but her daughters husband had a heart attack and was in a coma in the hospital, I told her about my dream about her daughter was crying in my dream, but I had no idea that her husband was ill. I told my friends that I would pray for him, which I did, but I had a feeling that he wouldn't recover. A week ago, her husband died and they will have a funeral service for him Wednesday. I don't profess to be anything but a child of God, but I believe I am blessed with godly gifts and would go so far as to ask is it ESP or a gifts of God, what do you think?.

I think you have a prophetic gifting. My pastor had similar experience even before he was saved, he would see that something was going to happen before it happened. His friends were sometimes amazed at how he could do this but it was just a gift that God gave him. Now he can go into a room with 30 people and God will give him intimate details about each one, he's unbelievably accurate but this only came after many years in the prophetic ministry.

Immature prophets, often would be able to hear from God but would also hear the voice of the enemy and not be able to distinguish between the two. I think people with strong prophetic gifting's must go through the ringer to refine their character before they can be trusted as seasoned prophets.

Thank you Someonewhoknows, for your visit and your comment, I appreciate you. I'm sure there are people that have gifts and not be aware that they exist. I guess I'm one of the bless few that know exactly what my gifts are and try to use them accrodingly. You have a blessed evening. creativeone59

mylife=adventure - I can't Imagine dying much less every night although it may exist I've never heard of such a disease before now.

My hubpage name is "SOMEONEWHOKNOWS" but I must confess to not knowing about your disease.

Maybe I should hyphenate my hubpage name to " SO-ME-ONE-WHO-KNOWS?" I'm sure it would explain a lot to those who don't know any better than I do that anything can be misconstrued to mean something else when it's in the eye of the be-h-older.

As for gifts from God we all can have one and not know it until we try our best to show it !

You have a gift from God my friend. Man may call it ESP or whatever they want but God calls it 'visions and prophets' and these things do happen to those who love the Christ. Yes--you are supposed to use your gifts all for the glory of God--"with all your might" and many of us do. Some do bad with their gifts and then it goes very far away and then there are some that have gifts of a similar nature but come from 'demonic' source. No fear if you are on God's team and doing good with it-- be thankful for the gifts God gives-he will give more and more and then do something awesome for God with them! ;)

Thank you daydreamer, for your visit and comment. The bible states that we all are given gifts, but they aren't all the same, but what ever your gift is, you're suppose to use it with all your might. God bless you. creativeone59

I believe in ESP and I believe in gifts from God. I believe we are all given the same gifts from God and we need to figure out or be taught how to use them. Humans are amzing creatures but I think we need to be educated on what we can truely do.

Great hub!

I don't have any ESP abilities, but i've heard of other's who do. I wouldn't judge anyone who say's that they have that power. My feeling's are like yours, sometimes it would be nice, then it would be bad. Great subject.

Hey there Mylife, I didn't take what you said as an insult to me, I am a person that's slow to judge and I'm so sorry that you have been hounded and put down by people that profess to be godly people.Only God has the authority to judge anyone. I'm sure you are a good person, but even if you just considered God, you would be in a better place, but Don't let me sway you. I just wish the total best for you. Blessings to you. Oh, about the super bowl, I never gave it a thought, but if anything come up, I let you know. creativeone59

Well like I said I mean no insult to you or your religion I just don't believe in God but that doesn't make me a bad person. I actually help out at many charity events and I help assistant coach for a youth basketball league. I believe if I am a good person and am respectful to others that live on this same place we call earth than I shouldn't be judged by an almighty one because I don't worship him. (Sorry if I sound a little sour towards Christianity, but I have been judged by multiple "Christians" my whole life telling me I am a sinner and going to hell for not believing and worshiping) As for my sickness I have to depend on medication to get about 3 maybe 4 hours of sleep a day not including when I have a night terror. I'm sorry I wasn't implying that you do drugs, my non belief with the whole ESP is because those are the only kind of people I have ever met who have claimed to be ESP.

I wish you well and if you have a dream about the score of the Super Bowl game please let me know!! =].

Stay Happy and True....Mylife

Thank you Mylife, for your visit and comment, I guess I would feel the same if I had your sickness. I am sorry you don't believe in God, I know without a doubt that he does exist, he has done so much for me in my life to prove he does exist and there is no doubt in my mind. I know that is my opinion. I pray that you find a cure somewhere in this world that can help you. As I said in my hub, I don't profess to have ESP and I don't do drugs, I just know that I am a child of the living God and have been for 49 years and that is a true fact for me. Mylife if I can ever say or do anything to help you, I'm hear. Bless you. creativeone59

I am a Christian and this happens to me too. I have the same questions about it you do.

Yes Faye. Many people have a "psychic" sense about things happening. I too have traces of this but I can't take it seriously as there is nothing that I can control. If I were to try to control it- it would cease to be. I can sit back, in a sense, and watch the likelihoods of things coming to be. God bless you Faye. You are open to your gifts!

I have been diagnosed with Parasomnia a night terror disease in which I die almost every night during my night terrors. I don't see it as a gift of god but as a curse for what I do not know. There is many reasons I don't believe in God ( No insult to you if you do just my personal opinion) but I have personally met many people who have claimed to have ESP but just turned out to be phonies who have done to many drugs. As for the dreams that you dreamed and than the outcomes seemed to come true. This could be caused just by the fact you are influenced by your subconscious to make these sort of things come true. Thanks for the interesting post I would love to discuss more with you.

Stay Happy and True...Mylife
