Are You a Psychic By Birth?

There's a superstition out there that when you are born with the amniotic sac still over your face as an infant, that you may be naturally psychic.
While there are some hypotheses as to why people think this, being born en caul is not the only way you can find yourself as a natural intuitive.
In the empathic community, it's thought that up to 20% of the population is considered extra sensitive and that this could be genetic.
So being naturally sensitive (psychic) could be hereditary.
It could also be related to early life experiences or experiences a baby has in utero.
If parents are under stress while the baby is being born, a child may develop a heightened awareness of emotional signals, which leads to an increased awareness of the non-physical.
The development of heightened awareness in utero could be an attempt the baby makes connect with the mother and understand the environment it will be born into, ultimately creating psychic gifts.
Signs you may be naturally sensitive:
Have you been called ‘too sensitive’?
Do you wear your heart on your sleeve?
Feel other people’s pain even though you wish you didn’t?
Do you regularly give your whole heart to a relationship, only to wind up hurt?
People who are naturally emotionally sensitive are usually naturally psychic because increased sensitivities will typically indicate someone is clairsentient.
If any of these things sound like you, you may have been born with a veil. A veil is an additional tool of awareness that some souls on this Earth carry with them to see the non-physical slate of creation.
Someone born with a veil can usually see beyond the physical realm and into the realm of potential creation, using a variety of non-physical senses.
Being born with a veil means you can sense the energetic boundary between you and the world around you.
People who are born with an awareness of the energetic layer of the world usually have evident psychic abilities, such as:
Having strong empathetic gifts
They can more easily sense, see and perceive the world of Spirit
They can more easily identify what others are thinking and feeling
They have a difficult time with boundaries in relationships
They have an increased natural psychic ability
Even if you don’t consider yourself a psychic right at this exact moment, consider the statements above.
People with extremely natural psychic abilities often don’t realize they are psychic when they are.
This can lead to burnout, emotional drain, and necessary recharge time after social interaction.
People who are naturally psychic often incorrectly classify as introverts, simply because they have unmanaged energetic boundaries and because of this, interacting with the public becomes draining.
They may also not realize that knowing when something is a bad idea could be a potential sensory gift.
And they may also not realize that most people don’t suddenly have the solutions to all of everyone else’s problems.
Being born with a spiritual ‘skin’ is becoming more common, as the world evolves more rapidly, it needs thinkers who can see things beyond the physical.
Natural sensitivities in babies are being noticed more than ever before. Parents are also noticing it, fostering it, and more in tune with sensitive children than ever before, so this is all a good thing.
We need sensitive people to change the world as it is today to become a more compassionate, aware, and consciously connected place.
Don’t think you were born with a veil?
There are also events in our life that will open up psychic abilities, later on, to reveal a thin, more empathetic and sensitive nature underneath.
You could also experience a veil thinning event through:
The birth a child
The loss of a loved one
A traumatic injury or event
Participating in certain holidays around the world
A near-death experience
A major breakup or divorce
A career change or a move
The diagnosis or healing of an illness
Another type of spiritual awakening event
Any of these events can catalyze the unfoldment or awareness of hidden psychic abilities.
They can facilitate the thinning of your physical shell, so you can more easily sense, perceive and tune into the unseen world of energy and Spirit.
So you can develop the ability to see the veil, which is the world of possibility, through events that soften your own energetic shell.
How You Can Use These Gifts
However you define these gifts, and whenever you become aware of them, they can be utilized to benefit the world and even your own environment.
Do you already classify yourself as empathic, sensitive, or introverted?
If so, know empathic people are often very close to being fully psychic.
They can sense people's emotions, and once this ability is stepped into and embraced, it often launches into a much deeper level of the gift, called clairsentience.
Clairsentience one the psychic abilities, which allows us to clearly feel what others do and the pains and the concerns in the non-physical.
Clairsentience is often accompanied by other gifts such as claircognizance and clairaudience. Claircognizance and clairaudience then provide us with tangible guidance on how to heal and return to joy, what we perceive through the heart.
You can develop these empathy towards clairsentience, check out this article on developing empathy for how.
If you're more extroverted, good news, you may be more of a clairvoyant. Extroverts are often visionary. You can use your visionary skills to develop programs, products, and metaphors that heal others.
So if you are a psychic, know you aren't at the whim of feeling, and that's that. You can also use your other gifts to find solutions for creating a better, more comfortable world and environment for you, yourself, and those you cherish.
So To Recap:
Natural psychic gifts often present as emotional sensitivity
They can exist in those who naturally classify as an introvert
These gifts can open later in life through naturally induced experiences
The purpose of psychic gifts is to heal the world, so the more, the merrier
The purpose of all spiritual gifts is to provide joy, love, and healing to the world. Once you identify what you can absorb and sense non-physical information, the next step is asking for information on how to work with it.
When you do this, you'll be guided to the tools you need to utilize your gifts for the powerful healing of humanity. Ultimately this connects you to other companies, individuals and collectives doing the same -
