I have said – since the era when I realized I was psychic – that those people opposed to psychics, afraid or angry when in the vicinity of those of us with moot gifts (moot in the sense that – here we are, we can do this stuff, not our fault), are almost every time very psychic themselves. In other words, afraid of their own gifts, feeling that this right-brained information threatens their left-brained lives.
Actually, in sheer numbers, there are very few of them left now – based on my own experience. I did have a voice message last year, from a woman who wanted me to renounce my gifts and ask Jesus to forgive me. Since Jesus acted pretty psychic himself, I didn’t see the need to do that. And, since her phone number was on my caller ID, I left her a message, saying that if she should ever call me again, I would take appropriate steps not to be harassed that way.
And it sure sounded to me like she had the same ‘itch’ in her brain that I get when my intuition is bugging me about something. She just used her religion to talk herself out of it, used her left brain against her right brain.
It’s the same thing gay folk have always said – the most virulent anti-gays are fighting themselves, and their own needs and issues. Sure seems very similar to me.
