Origins of the Psychic Gift: “How did you know you were psychic?” Sally Rice is a psychic medium based in Tamarindo Costa Rica. She describes her memories of life beyond the veil, and how she discovered her gift as a medium. Sally describes her memories of being across the veil, and the soul contract she created before incarnating to this present life.
People often ask me how did you know you were psychic, or when did you discover that you were psychic. I realize that the answer to this question is a little uncomfortable for some people, but it’s the truth and I can only share with you my truth. That’s all I know. The answer is I came into this incarnation with a full memory of my past life, and a memory of being in spirit, and a memory of being in the Hall of Souls where I was involved in making my life contract for this incarnation. I can go into a lot of details about that. I have visuals and I remember it very distinctly.
So, with that memory how did it manifest? Well, one of my earliest memories was when I was old enough to sit but still in diapers. I remember being on the dining room floor sitting down and having full conscious awareness of my memory of where I had come from. I was thinking about the Hall of Souls, and I was thinking about the contract that I had made, specifically with my mother and how we were to work through some of our relationship issues in this incarnation. As I was sitting there I remember the feeling of being an adult. In other words, the memory of that moment feels the same as a memory that I have today of say yesterday. I don’t have any separation between the child and the adult. So, that was the first conscious memory. But, as my mother came down the stairs to get me I remember making eye contact with her and seeing in her eyes that she had actually forgot, and I remember to this day the shock that I had for realizing that she didn’t remember our contract, and it was quite something at the time.
As I got older I was very accustomed to seeing spirits, ghosts, whatever you’d like to call them. I saw them as physical beings just like you see normal people. I also saw spirit energies as fog, kind of different colored reds, and pinks, and blues, depending on the spirit. I had spirits that came and visited me. Of course, I also started at a very young age to get impressions about other people and what they might be feeling. I learned when I was around 12 that that was inappropriate and that I shouldn’t be talking about things like that. I had come from a very conservative family. My parents were professors, and architects, and engineers in our family, so it was a very academic background that I was exposed to, and the talk of the esoteric or, certainly, talk of spirits and ghosts was absolutely not appreciated under the household roof where I grew up. But that didn’t seem to stop me, because I started doing readings for people when I was about 12 and then continued on throughout my entire life.
I began working as a psychic professionally when I was 50. Before that I sort of put it in a nice neat little box and didn’t talk about it because, again, I was involved in more academic professions. I began my first career as an international tour guide leading groups around Europe and Africa. Later I became a costume designer for the motion picture industry. Both of those careers were not conducive to psychic talk, so I didn’t really start my work until, again, I was in my 50s. That’s a little bit of an idea of where it started. Again, I am a psychic by birth, but now I am a certified, multiply tested, and verified psychic, as well as a Certified Reiki Practitioner. So, I hope that helps you a little bit understand the origins of the psychic gift. Okay, talk to you later. Bye-bye.
