When I decided to come out of the Psychic Closet I had no idea how to go about doing it. So, I did what most people do, I Googled it. I found that most spiritual sensitive people were just as stumped as me when it came to telling others about their gifts. Although I fully believed in my abilities, I was not comfortable using words like “psychic” and “medium” when describing myself. Honestly, I’m still getting used to it. So, how do I tell them? Well, I prayed for help.
Spirit helped me in ways that often made “coming out” easier for me. Some people found out about my gifts because I had messages for them from their loved ones who have crossed over. For example, a woman decided to join a home business I was a part of. She invited me to her house to help her understand the company website. When I was there, Spirit was active and definitely had something to say. I didn’t tell her though because I didn’t know her well enough to know how she would react. However, Spirit had other plans. I was given a message for this woman that was repeated to me over the next week. It go to the point that it was driving me crazy. So, I called her and told her about my gift and the message I had for her. Luckily she was very open-minded and believed in people having gifts like mine. She was so grateful for me being courageous enough to share her message from Spirit. Soon after coming out to her, I began meeting with her, her family and her friends. That led to me getting requests from people I didn’t know. That is when I knew it was time to tell my family and friends who were not aware of me being a Spiritual Sensitive. However, I still wasn’t sure how to tell them. So, I listened to Spirit and told people when it felt right.
Here’s a great example of knowing when it was right: I have an amazing, long-time, childhood friend that I had to tell over the phone because she lives overseas. Somehow, one of our phone calls went into the direction that allowed me to work in Spirit. That led to me “coming out” to her. She is skeptical and I knew that it would affect our conversation. However, she is totally supportive of my gift and has only shown me love and kindness.
My husband and I decided together when to tell family members that didn’t know. We knew that some of them do not believe in “this stuff” but, out of respect we felt we should tell them ourselves before they found out from others. We weren’t surprised when some doubted everything we said and even suggested medical attention. I told them “You do not need to believe in me or even support me. That’s not why we’re telling you. We wanted to tell you ourselves because we didn’t want you to hear about it from someone else.” They shrugged their shoulders and moved on with the evening and never mentioned it again. This is completely fine. I never want to shake anyone’s faith or try to convince people to believe in me. Either you do, or you don’t and I’m fine with both as long as you show me the same respect I show you.
So, when you decide to come out of the Psychic Closet, take your time and pray. Ask God for help. Expect that some people will think you are nuts, some will support you, some will fear you and some will reject you. But, as long as you are strong in your faith and you believe in yourself, you’ll be fine.
