Right now I’m working on a memoir about not only my own weird, paranormal experiences, but those of my family. For at least five generations, psychic abilities and spiritual gifts have been passed down through the female line on my mother’s side of the family. Of course, I will have to pick the best stories to tell or else this book I’m writing could go on forever.
Thinking about all this family history made me wonder how many other families also share gifts like these. I know on shows like “Psychic Kids” it seems like at least half of the kids with psychic abilities received them from a parent or grandparent (primarily the mother’s side). That got me to wondering how common it is for psychic gifts to run in families and whether they are normally handed down through the maternal side of the family? I can’t remember anyone much saying that they received their paranormal abilities from their father or their grandfather, it almost always seems to be from the mother or grandmother. Of course, this leads me to question, if a male does inherit this gift from his mother or grandmother, will he be able to pass the gift on to his children?
So, if you have a story about your own psychic family history, please feel free to leave a comment below. I would especially like to hear from any men who inherited the gift. Also, has anyone actually gotten their abilities from the paternal side of their family?
