We need your thoughts!
I started writing these articles with the purpose of informing, entertaining, educating, and getting your input. I am writing this article to solicit your thoughts, opinions, and insights. For those of you who have ESP abilities, psychic abilities, or otherwise interact with the unseen world these words are for you. For those of you, who don’t seem to have these abilities, let me first say that we all are capable if we don’t let fear and judgments stand in our way. So this article is also for you. A short while ago, I wrote about the numbers of people, young and old, that I have met that have just recently developed ESP and other unusual abilities. Some people would say these abilities are such a wonderful gift. However, in many cases these people were very distressed by the onset of experiences which from their perspective were fearful, disorienting, and unwanted. They could not figure out what was happening to them and why. Young people have a particularly difficult time when these abilities show up because their parents usually do not understand or believe, nor do their friends so they tend to feel very alone with their situation. In my travels it seems that some of these kids end up going to psychiatric counseling and end up being prescribed drugs to help them with their “problem”. Others turn to alcohol or other drugs to get the experiences to stop. This situation has bothered me for some time. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for a person 10 to 12 years of age to figure out what is taking place within them, particularly if there is no one to talk to about it, let alone validate what is happening. I was fortunate that my own abilities started to develop and grow later in life, when I was older and more able to accept the changes. Since they appeared gradually and only after I took some training it was an easier process. Not so with most of the people I have met regardless of when the abilities started or how long they have had them.
Your insights please.
Now this is where I would like to get your input. I have been thinking about creating a “place” where people can go for information, support, and discussion about what may be happening with them. A place where those people, particularly young people, can get some validation and acceptance of their experiences, get some help, and share with others who have similar abilities; so they don’t feel quite so alone. Here there would also be the opportunity to work with other “gifted” people, who have had these abilities for awhile, to better understand and develop their own abilities. A young person’s parents could also visit for information, books, and advice.
So, what do you think?
- Good idea, or not?
- Do you think this is needed?
- Should it be an online place, a physical place where a person can go, or both?
- How could we cover the costs related to having this place available?
- Do you know people who could use this type of concept?
- What would be the best way to let those people, who are having difficulty, know about such a “place”?
- What would you call or name this place so it makes sense to those it would serve?
- Please share any other ideas or suggestions.
I am having a meeting next week with some people who might be interested in helping with this project, so I would appreciate your insights as soon as possible to share at this meeting. You can leave your comments below or email me directly. I want to say that I very much appreciate you taking the time to read my articles and provide me with the feedback that you do.
