Do you think we all have gifts?

Do you think we can all tap in to our sixth sense or rather "powers" that some would think never existed? Do we put our own restraint on our ability to learn and grow because of how society expects us to be or what we think we should act and do?

  • I think it's a science that hasn't been properly discovered yet,it's not about spooky ghosts or gods and spirits but there must be an explanation for certain energies that permit us to do certain things.Ignorance creates fear,we need to discover an intelligent explanation for that which we still call super natural!It exists,just don't know what it is and why!

  • I think we all have the capabilities of extraordinary things, but our world isn't fine tuned for extraordinary people anymore. The more you fit in, the less you stand out, the better chance you have making it through life with little confrontation.

  • Yes, I think we all have gifts.

    I think society pressures, family beliefs being taught and pressed on kids,etc as they grow all repress those things so they are never noticed or grown/developed.

  • All human children are born with these abilities, but tend to squelch them as they grow into adults. They CAN be re-cultivated, tho not to the extent that we had them as children. As a child I saw ghosts and heard them speak, just as if they were any other people. I have learned to hear them again, but I cannot cultivate that ability I had to actually see them. And even with adults making fun of me, I kept some of those gifts, whether I wanted them or not.

  • Yes I do and I believe that because of the way society is, we either hide them or forget about them. Few continue to use them but do so secretly until they get older.

    Women get some of them back once they become mothers, especially concerning their kids.

  • Yes. I happen to know I have a few gifts. I think everyone would know they did if they opened their mind more.
