Who have you told?

I've told close friends about my powers, but what about the parents? Should I tell them? I've kept it from them for 3 years. Something recent has happened. I am now doubting my judgement. Please, tell me your thoughts.

Ask your parents what their thoughts are on the subject then just tell them that you think you have these powers you obviously need to give your parents some sort of message.!!!

I didn't tell my mum until recently, and she accepted it as part of me. She said I was always a 'hippy' and had beliefs beyond the normal since childhood. She was worried that I would rely on my powers over normal judgement, I told her I had always used my intuition and instincts anyhow and not to worry. My dad thinks it's hocus pocus, as does my brother who says, 'if it makes her happy', bosh... how patronising. My sister in law is very religious and we choose not to talk about it. When my niece was telling me about the other children that live in their house, who keep taking her dolly, I was warned not to encourage her. I just let her tell me and she said no one else believed her. I told her I did and did not laugh.

Tell you family if it's relevant. I only told mine cos my mum took me to an angel workshop to get some healing after an rta. She was not convinced by angels herself....her yoga teacher was running the class and had said it would be good for her to go and to take me.

It all just came out.

Nothing should change, they will just see you in a different light and maybe answer some questions about you, like, when you were little and had amazing dreams. Or how you would second guess a situation. Just don't bore them with it or get drawn into defending yourself.

I think they will be not surprised, but they will regard you differently. I'd start by telling just one person in the family who can then pass it on to the rest for you. Then brace yourself for the next sunday lunch!

If you are unsure don't do it til you are. The doubt is your instincts saying maybe you could wait a wee bit and test the water with something first.

good luck and a big hug.

Thank you all. I just told my father today. Apparently, he had them when he graduated, but has lost them now. He didn't really get upset he just asked me simple questions. Stuff he wanted to know. My grandpa had the powers too, he could find water anywhere. My mother doesn't know because she is at a meeting and my sister is at college, so not exactly sure how she will react, but hopefully as well as my father. And I thought he would be the worst one to tell! Thanks again!

hello all

This is easy for me because my gifts are in the family. My grandmother is a tarot reader/medium somehow I was chosen to adopt her gifts (she is too ill to continue). However, most of my friends know, but they do not understand. They are afraid to ask me anything for fear of what the answer will be. Always use your judgment when thinkin about telling someone anyone about what you do, sometimes its best to say nothing. Just my opinion Kat
