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.

    My names Dylan I’m a 16 year old and I can do this. It started when we lives with one of my moms friends when I was like three and my mom said that I would wave and talk to someone down the hallway. when she asked me what I was doing I would say talking to the lady in the hall don’t you see he mom. then one day my mom hung up a picture of our dead’s friend’s mom and I saw it and went hey mom that’s the lady in the hall. she took me to the doctors and they said that it was amazing that I could describe a women I had never seen before who was not alive so they asked me questions but me through test then one day it all went away but its started to come back I see people and the wave at me I can talk to them but my friends look at me when I do it like there so confused and they don’t see anyone so that’s my story of my life and I just wanted to share this with you guys

      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?
