Do you believe there are people who can see the future?

Do you believe there are people born with special abilities?

Do you believe these powers can run in families?


I'm curious and I'll explain why in a bit.


ETA: let me clarify, by witch I don't specifically mean a religion that some people choose, I mean a person with abilities, not by choice. In prior centuries a person would be accused of being a witch. I used the word witch because that was the word I heard growing up.


ETA: Answers and my explanation for this post.

I am very happy, thank you. :)

No, I am not fat, lol. I'm pretty fit actually and teach dance.

I am not wiccan or pagan, I'm Christian.

When I was around 11 my mom told me that certain things ran in our family that didn't run in others. She told me many stories about my great grandmother and herself that were quite incredible, but I'll stick with me.

I think my mom told me about our family secret because she felt I was different too. From an early age I began having dreams that came true. I would see people in my dreams very clearly and then meet them in real life days, weeks, or months later.

I predicted the sexes of all my babies and the babies of friends and family members. No, I never try that on CM because it's a very strong feeling I get when I'm around them.

There is so much more, but you get the idea.

My reason for this post is I'm not quite sure how to feel about this. My whole life I felt sort of cursed and ashamed. So afraid of being judged and ridiculed.

But now I feel these are (must be) gifts, not a bad thing. I just don't know how my friends and family would feel, so I keep it all secret. I'm also very afraid of how my church would see me. It sounds silly but I'm afraid they would accuse me of having a demon or something crazy like that.

There are many things science cannot explain, this might just be one of them.
