Do You See the Dead?

Or can you tell who is about to die? Seeing The Dead

The first thing I did after spending a 14-hour day birthing this website was to run—literally—down to the neighborhood store. My butt was numb and my head so stuffed full of thoughts I felt like it could crumble apart and disgorge its contents like a rotting pumpkin! Brisk movement felt great. I had no idea why I was going to the store. Didn’t need anything. I just went.

Almost immediately I found myself chatting with a clerk I had shared causal talk with for a few years. I told him about this site. Suddenly we were discussing his ‘gift’—knowing when people are about to die. He had been accurate within a few days with several friends. This ability was relatively new for him, following an accident. As you can imagine, managing this gift was challenging. I will not share his details.

He was not the first person I know with such a gift. I know well at least three otherwise perfectly normal people who have the same ‘gift’ the boy in the movie “The Sixth Sense” had. They see dead people. Not all the time, but on occasion. For the man I know best this started quite young. Soldiers who had died in the civil war visited him. (He told me I could share this.) His imagery was so vivid that he began to look up photos in books to identify their regiments from the buttons on their uniforms.

This man told no one of his gift until he told me in his late forties. He feared people would think he was insane, and used to drink to try and suppress feeling. Later he learned to manage his gift more smoothly and to be at peace with his intense sensitivity.

I do not see the dead myself, although I do feel them occasionally when they have unfinished business with one of my clients. This is usually a loving parent.

This post is to break the ice with this type of topic. These abilities are not uncommon. If you or to someone you love sees the dead or knows when people will pass please comment. Much of the world is finally ready to accept your gifts. Let’s help each other through discussion.

    I am always searching for people like me. Ever since I can remember I have been able to see and talk to the dead and Sometimes I just hear them in the room talking to me and other times I see them. I can also see other things like dark figures and creatures that don’t exist in this world. When I sleep and dream, I like to travel. I draw all the places I go and people I see in dream and waking.I have visited places so horrible, some so heavenly,some I have no words for. I have even received messages from loved ones who passed on about my life giving me guidance. With all these abilities I seem to just get more questions and more curious. I am at peace with myself and my abilities although only my husband and you guys know. I keep a don’t ask them I won’t tell policy. Feels good just say it. Sometimes I feel like I live in two worlds at once. This place is such a blessing. Thank you all. Namesté

        Please ,tell me how you distinguish dead people? I heard, they look no different. So, how do you tell?

          Hello Joanne,

          Since I don’t have this particular gift, I’ll leave this to others to respond as they come along, for the most part. They FEEL different when one senses them. It’s not all about vision.

      Hi Dylan,

      Sounds like you have a wonderful gift. Cultivate it with respect, intentionally develop trust in yourself by being truthful with yourself, and remember that your own truth will always be more important than what anybody thinks. As you can see from all the comments on this post, you are not alone!

    Hello everybody,
    Off and on since I was a teenager people I know who are dead tend to “stop by” and see me. Some have been to say goodbye, some to let me know they are now okay, but one has gone beyond these “pit stops”.
    He was the love of my life and even though we lost touch with each other I have thought of him everyday for 40 years. He died 20 years ago from a drug overdose but has “stopped by” several times to see me.
    One night as I slept I could feel him with me. The most intense part was when he kissed me and I could taste him, just as he had tasted when we kissed in life. I remember pulling away from him and telling him “you’re dead you know”, at which point his face changed to that of someone long dead and he left.
    To this day I still taste his kiss and swear I feel him surround me on many a night.
    Does this mean I am keeping him back or is he letting me know he feels like I do and regrets losing touch all those years ago.
    I never married and know if we had had a chance he and I would still be together and married all these years. We did have a son who was still born and that is the only child I can ever have.
    Am I keeping him back or is he here for what could have been?

    I only just realized this about my self but when I was a child and even now I would always see dead children that were around my age. Of course they’re not my age now but when I was around 5, I would see them. I knew they were dead because of a feeling I had that made them different from other children around me. I used to talk to them all the time and I guess that’s why even now I get weird looks or I’m shunned at my school. It makes me feel insane and makes me feel like I’m being ripped apart.

    I can see it only when ‘it’ wanted to tell me someone is going to die; friends or relatives..it will keep me in question marks on who is sick or who is going to pass away.

    • Teresa Dietze 2 December 2017 at 9:27 am #

      Yes, it’s interesting how the gift works differently in different people, and how we each manage our relationships to our gifts.

    People who have passed been coming to me.some of them are family members some I don’t know.i thought I was going a little crazy were do you go to tell people with the same gift.you don’t have many people to talk to about this.

    I have had this problem since early childhood. I am now almost 60. I call it a problem because I have the ability to see dead people but not to talk with them. They are constantly coming up to me and touching me like they want me to interact with them but I cannot hear anything they are saying. I see their lips moving and they are speaking to me but I cannot hear them and they seem not to be able to hear me. Quite frankly, it unnerves me most the time. I tend to avoid hospitals because of the vast number of dead people that seem tied to them. Oddly enough, funeral homes are “dead people” free.

    As an attorney, I cannot speak of this to anyone. Most people would just think a person that sees the dead is a little crazy. I am not sure it is a gift if the person has the ability to see the dead but no ability make things better for those they see that are seeking help.

      Hi Clint,

      Thanks for sharing your situation.

      I’ve had experiences during which I received information without access to language. It’s a bit of an adjustment, but when one settles into the heart and creates a clear intention, one can often access information via different modes, such as visual imagery and sensation. Sometimes I triangulate or interpolate between several different sensory methods of input and information begins to coalesce, forming a picture, literally or figuratively, that stimulates insight. Communication can be received this way with a bit of practice. It’s not dissimilar to the “charades” one plays when traveling in a foreign country.

      From all of the accounts I have read and heard, I get the impression that of those who see the dead, the percentage of those who are imbalanced or crazy is not much different than other population averages. Some have trouble communicating their experiences or become emotionally wrapped up in them, and may appear out of balance to those who cannot discern the difference. A lot of people come across the same way discussing any emotionally charged topic of which they are uncertain to be well received.

      I suspect that you have your mental skills well developed, with sensitivity underlying–you care that might make things better for those seeking help. If you are drawn to, consider focusing on your heart skills and exploring your intuition. Might add another dimension, so to say, to life satisfaction.

      All Good Wishes,

    i have a feeling i can predict death and also i have dreams about future or scenes that are going to happen … help

    Hello, It is nice to know their are other people who can share their experiences. I consider these experiences to be a gift. At one point in my life I truly didn’t understand why I had the ability to know when certain people were about to pass away. And I didn’t understand why certain things would happen that I just couldn’t explain.
    Imagine having dreams or visions that were showing you that someone was going to be passing away… Or objects moving to get your attention!
    I have been having these for many years and when it first started happening it scared me because I didn’t know what to do with this knowledge I was being given.
    I spend a lot of time with the public because of the kind of work I do. Today I met with a lady at her work and she brought me into a meeting room and I got settled with our paperwork. She had forgotten something and had to leave the room and no sooner did she leave the room the chair next to me slightly moved ( slid ) a little further away. I sat their and said to myself well what do I do with this… and just about than the nice lady had returned back to the room and settled in her chair and I looked up at her and smiled. I kept having this urge to ask her if she has noticed things happening around her that she just couldn’t explain… In my heart I kept feeling this push to tell her about the chair..so I did… I explained to her that when she walked out of the room that the chair slid to one side…and she smiled and tears ran down her cheeks and she began to tell me that her dad recently passed away in December of cancer and that she was missing him but knew he was in a better place now because he is not in any pain… she had said told me that she has been wanting confirmation for sure that he was okay. She received her confirmation today and she was so grateful that I made that effort to tell her about the chair sliding to the side because her dad use to slide his chair to the side before he would get up. What a Blessing it was for me to be able to help this young woman receive the confirmation she was looking for… I believe we meet certain people in our lives for reasons not always known to us….

    Their is so much I would love to share … but today I wanted to let those of you who do have experiences with things such as I shared or other things to open your mind and remember that these gifts we are given are not about us..but about people who are in need of a confirmation… or maybe you you see visions like I do of people who are going to pass…I believe we are given this gift to help that persons loved one or friend or sister or brother with things of the heart before that persons passes away… I have found this to be true for me.
    I have been always very fortunate that I have a mother that I have always been able to share these experience with.
    no matter what your gift may be…seeing spirits, having visions of the future, ect….. you were chosen for a reason.
    May God Bless each and every one of you….
