My family has a long history of military service dating back to the Revolutionary War, Civil War and more recently my grandfather in World War I, my father in World War II and my brother in the Vietnam War. We were lucky that they all came back home physically whole. My brother Jerry who served in Vietnam brought the war back home with him as many vets did then and are doing now with current conflicts. He also came home with a new gift or “curse” which I write about in my book “Blessed Assurance Through Visions and Dreams”.
Jerry developed a sense of who was going to die in battle. He told me it was something about the person’s eyes that gave him the sense of the person’s fate. Years after Jerry died, my daughter told me of a conversation she had with her uncle. He told her that he would see the person in black and white and that would be the sign that death would be near.
After the war, this ability continued his whole life. I remember one instance where he said good-bye to a co-worker on a Friday after work and he knew she wouldn’t be back on Monday. She was killed in a motorcycle accident on the weekend. It was a huge burden to know something, but not be able to do anything about it. How do you tell someone to be extra careful because you think they might be at risk or ill? Having fore-knowledge is a gift but also a curse.
I remember him watching television and Joe Louis, the boxer, was in the audience. Jerry said he was going to die. Mr. Louis died the next day.
Being an intuitive comes with responsibility to be ethical, compassionate and empathic. If you have a gift, I would love your feedback on how you handle your fore-knowledge of events.
