The Gifts You Were Born With...
My belief is that the bible is the best metaphysical book anyone could read. Everything that I learned how to do is also listed in the bible, mostly in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, my favorite chapter is “The Gifts”.
(Corinthians 1, Chapter 12, Verse 4-11)
The variety and the unity of gifts
There are many different gifts, but it is always the same Spirit; there are many different ways of serving, but it is always the same Lord. There are many different forms of activity, but in everybody, it is the same God who is at work in them all. The particular manifestation of the Spirit granted to each one is to be used for the general good. To one is given from the Spirit the gift of utterance expressing wisdom; to another the gift of utterance expressing knowledge; in accordance with the same spirit to another, faith, from the same Spirit; and to another, the gifts of healing, through the same Spirit; to another, the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another, the power of distinguishing spirits; to one, the gift of different tongues and to another, the interpretation of tongues. But at work in all these is one and the same Spirit, distributing them at will to each individual.
The New Jerusalem Bible
Why in the Bible does it tell you that you have gifts but then again it tells you that you cannot use them?
(Deut 18 10:22) There must never be anyone among you who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire of sacrifice, who practices divination, who is a soothsayer, augur or sorcerer, weaver of spells, consulter of ghosts or mediums or necromancer.
I prayed/meditated on this one day asking up to God why I am not allowed to do these things... The answer that came back down was, “Okay, let’s say that a client comes in and you tell them the future and it comes true. Then six months to a year later they come again and again it comes true...You have just created a co-dependent person to have you tell them how to live their life.” I asked up again so, what do I do, “Teach” was the answer. Empower people to be in control of their own lives.
Traditionally, the word Metaphysics comes to us from Ancient Greece, where it was a combination of two words – Meta, meaning over and beyond – and physics. Thus, the combination means over and beyond physics. Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy exploring the fundamental questions, including the nature of concepts like being, existence, and reality.
In history when a person is ignorant (lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned) to a new belief, concept or idea he or she may be scared or fear it. The person may react in a very negative way until they are comfortable and know they are in no danger, or when the masses appear to be comfortable with the new belief, concept or idea.
The sixth sense (Extrasensory Perception) is just that... the masses are not comfortable with the belief, concept or idea yet. History has not given enough proof that you will not be burned, drowned, tied to the cross, banished, stoned or being committed to an insane asylum. Really the authorities in history did not know how to control the energy and did not allow it. Now, authorities seem to have us believe that it is all bogus and not possible.
What if it is just that they have no control, meaning no machine that can control the intuitive energy or information as they do have with FM and airwaves. In today's world, the authorities dictate which frequencies are to be used for Telephone / Fax, TV, Radio, Cellular and Satellite waves of electricity.
Intuition is so simple anyone can do it. Sensing energy is easy... accurate interpretation is the hard part!
