Over the years I have met several people who are scared to open up psychically and use their psychic ability because they have seen bad, frightening things in the past and believe that they will only see the things they don't want to see if they open up again.
So why do some people only seem to be shown scary, upsetting visions? I believe this is all to do with the health and development of the energy body. It usually occurs when the upper psychic centres (third eye, crown and other smaller chakras in the head area) are wide open before someone has finished working through and releasing their own fears, issues etc and done their own healing. In an ideal world your chakras gradually clear and open the more you work on yourself, releasing negative energies in the lower chakras first, so that your spiritual gifts develop in line with the spiritual healing and personal growth work that you do. In some people however their psychic centres/higher chakras may already be open. They may have stayed open in childhood, they may be a natural psychic, they may have health problems connected to the head such as headaches, migraines or epilepsy which can force the 3rd eye chakra open or the chakras may be open due to drug or alcohol use/abuse. These drugs can also include some powerful prescription drugs.
Our psychic visions are governed by the third eye chakra, sited in the forehead just above the brows with its rear over the occipital ridge at the back of the head. Sometimes a visual image of fears stored in the lowver chakras can be seen on your inner screen (third eye); in other words you are receiving a visual representation of that fear. I've encountered one or two people who have been absolutely convinced that something bad was going to happen to their partner or another loved one. Thankfully none of these visions have come true so I think it is much more likely that their visions and intuitions were a reflection of their own fears.
If this has happened to you, it is best to take it as a sign that you need greater control over your psychic abilities and an acknowledgement that some visions come from ourselves rather than from our guides, angels or Spirit. The only way to work psychically in a safe, trusting manner is to work through and release your own issues and recognise that there is most likely an underlying fear within you at the time you have the vision. After any unpleasant visions you should cleanse yourself with pure white light, allowing it to wash away any negative energy, and then ask yourself "Am I living in fear at the moment? Does this vision represent a subsconscious fear within me?"
Some people are able to tune in psychically to others they know who may be ill, going through a difficult time or close to the end. These people may feel out of sorts (anxious, low/depressed, fearful, lethargic etc) without knowing why until they find out that someone close to them has been going through exactly the same thing. Knowing the reason for your sudden intense negative mood will bring relief for both your state of mind and your body. Again, cleanse with the shower of white light to help release these feelings.
If you are the person who someone else has had a disturbing vision about, it is best to let it go, release it to the light, asking for cleansing and purification at the highest level. I was contacted by someone with this very issue only a few days ago and was inspired to say to him that you always have a choice, whether to live in fear or live in the light. Trust that most disturbing visions are a reflection of the seer's subconscious fears. It may actually be worth considering whether you should be more cautious in a particular area of your life as someone is obviously worried about you! You can also ask God or Archangel Michael to bring you any protection you may need. Visualise yourself in a blue, violet or gold bubble of protection and make sure you fully ground yourself to the Earth.
