Psychic Deafness

I’m deaf.  Well, psychically, anyway.

There’s part of me that wants to believe in the surreal and supernatural.  There’s part of me that can’t see the logic or facts in the paranormal, so discounts the whole idea.

Irrespective of whether I believe or not, I’ve been told I’m psychically deaf.  Even if I fully believed and wanted to hear what’s going on in the psychic world, I would be unable.

I went to a couple ‘psychic readers’ over the years (knowing full well that the money spent was for entertainment, not really expecting to get true insight).  All of them but one (who wanted more money) said I was unable to ‘hear’ the psychic world.  One of them told me that I could train myself to hear by doing psychic exercises.

“Imagine that there’s a screw top cap over your ‘third eye’.  Now, each night, imagine yourself unscrewing that cap and removing it so you can let the spirit world in!”

looks just like me...

Well, if I don’t fully believe, isn’t the exercise of unscrewing the cap from your head a failure-before-start?

I mention this in preparation for upcoming posts, plus just as an admission of my frailty… either in being unable to believe in the first place… or having the gall to think I could, some time, be able to…

yep...them too...

    The here and now, the stuff I have to deal with every day, the sights and sounds and challenges of this 3-D life present fully enough of a challenge for me. Not to say such things don’t exist but rather, not sure how (and if) (I want them to) apply to me. I like to think of it like some people think of ‘speaking in tongues’ – the only ones that get it, and peddle it are those who are ‘blessed’ enough to be able to do it. I don’t give a rat’s arse either way. Besides, and this applies to me too, is sometimes there are none so deaf ass those who will not hear (seeing, may in this context = believing).

    How are we to believe there are so many psychics anyway? Sheesh! I think there may actually be some true psychics out there but likely 1 in 100 billion. What a racket! I must be deaf as well.

    Love Third Eye Blind!

    I wish I were more psychically deaf. I have such an over-active imagination I can’t hear scary stories about creaky doors.

  5. hisqueen Says:

    Psychic ability will get you seeing things like they did in “Paranormal Activity” refused to get out of bed to go potty at night without the light on.
    I always figure my dogs will let me know if there are strange goin’-ons in my house. then again, the squirrel outside the window is strange goin’-ons to them..
    it could explain my nightmares about plane crashes a few days before it happens. I kicked my ex-mil off a plane once(called her crying, insisting she go on another flight), it went down right after take off.(without her on it). and they thought I was crazy.

    hmmm, interesting question, I don’t know where I fit in the psychic sensibility spectrum. Don’t discount its realistic presence among some, but don’t have any valid reason to believe I am blessed with any of these gifts.

  7. daisyfae Says:

    i can’t comprehend what i see living humans doing most of the time. ghosts, spirits and what not? that’d just make it worse…

  8. Dennis the Vizsla Says:

    I’m trying to figure out what songs would be on a Third Eye Blind collection …

  9. thegnukid Says:

    nursemyra – we should start a support group. meet every now again and revel in our living in the ‘real’ world

    girl, unpinned – yep, the real thing is a bit overwhelming all by itself than have to worry about something else out there.

    s. le – and wouldn’t a true psychic be using their powers for personal gain? c’mon…lottery numbers, finding hidden treasures, that kinda stuff.

    mitzi – sometimes a creaky door is just a creaky door…. sure the ghost is opening it to make it creak, but… [chuckle]

    hisqueen – see? now it’s that kinda stuff that makes me go ‘whoa!’ and wonder if there is something to it. still…deaf as a doornail.

    daisyfae – here’s the twist to that thought… imagine all those ghosts and spirits watching YOU do the things you’re doing… yoicks!

    dennis – you mean real songs or stuff we can make up they should’ve sung?

    […] At times it must be bliss to be “psychically deaf“. […]
