Psychics and Their Spouses
In the documentary Wake Up The Film, filmmakers follow around a medium, Jonas Elrod, and his girlfriend, as they both make sense of his new found gifts.
Jonas doesn't necessarily want these gifts, but he does know he was given these abilities to educate the world on them (hence, the documentary).
His girlfriend, on the other hand, and also in the film, while supportive, famously questions him, and his abilities, in some of the earlier scenes of the documentary.
This is a common thing among partners.
Spouses questioning their more intuitive partners.
And depending on how it's done, it can be either hurtful and erosive to the relationship, or supportive and encouraging.
Dismissive comments can yes, definitely erode any relationship, regardless of what they're about.
Yet conversely, when two partners respect each other, even if their beliefs diverge, the #1 thing that helps a psychic sharpen their gifts is living with and operating amongst many skeptics.
Because skeptics keep you on your toes.
And while the reality is that having a partner who is dismissive your behavior can often be a signifier of a larger issue, I don't think there's a psychic, healer, clairvoyant or medium alive who hasn't been poked or prodded at some point - either made into a spectacle, interrogated or otherwise cast out as the odd one of their bunch.
However, because family is often the last frontier, and people are generally taught to be polite to strangers, the most hurtful prods and pokes often do come from within.
Enter the spouse.
You can help your spouse walk through and understand your abilities, even if they've been a curmudgeon about your gifts in the past.
- regardless of gender
- regardless of their own spiritual beliefs
- whether or not they've expressed an interest in it
As long as your person has got an open attitude for learning, and generally considers themselves a compassionate person, it can be done, and it can even be fun.
In my guest post on Light Love and Spirit's Blog:
I talk about many of the techniques you can use to help walk your partner through your spiritual awakening and through understanding your gifts.
The truth is opposites attract - so yes, you may be living with a skeptical spouse.
But that's okay... because many psychics, healers, and shamans are!
This doesn't mean your partner won't ultimately support you, love you and come to embrace you and your wild ideas, so much as they may just need some time to wrap their heads around what's happening.
In the end, your partner may just become your biggest ally.
They may develop their own intuition, evolve into new practices, or even meet new people, all because of you and your gifts - and positive influences of having a highly spiritual person in their life.
