Psychic: Gift or Curse?

A person marked by extraordinary or mysterious sensitivity, perception, or understanding of the supernatural.

I will admit, I’m skeptical of people who claim to be psychic. My skepticism was only strengthened when a friend dragged me to see a man who was obviously no more psychic than I am, but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe there are people who are sensitive to the supernatural.

There are psychics all over the world. Many who use their abilities to help others, but is having the ability to sense the unknown a gift or a curse. I suppose this depends on just how sensitive the person is to the supernatural. I’m leaning toward the latter, because seeing ghosts and malevolent spirits does not sound like fun to me. 

How about you, would you consider being psychic a gift or a curse?


  1. It's both. I watched The Gift with Cate Blanchett and I think it says it all.

  2. The Gift - I remember that movie.
    I don't really believe in it either.

  3. I haven't see The Gift. I'll have to check it out.

  4. I suppose it is the way one uses the "gift" as to if it is really a gift or curse...

    As for psychics around the world, you might want to check out "A Fortune-Teller Told Me. Here is a link to my review of the book: http://sagecoveredhills.blogspot.com/2014/07/a-fortune-teller-told-me-earthbound.html

  5. I think there are good and bad psychics out there...the ones making money off of it usually aren't the good ones. They say we all have it within us, but we don't know how to tap into it?

  6. Sage, thanks for the link. I'll check it out.
    Stephanie, I agree.

  7. I agree that there are shady psychics out there. But if one has that ability, it can be said that its both a gift and a curse, depends on the perspective I guess.
