The Clairvoyant Gift by Carol Eliassen



 Did this piece in a class I finished recently.  It starts out with an assignment of a few starting words and then you write the story. Sometimes we all need a boost to get us started in our writing or at least a deadline to finish!  Hope you enjoy this short piece.  I have more - will post later. 

Pat knew for a long time that a clairvoyant gift was a curse to some and a gift to others.  Observing some of his peers he could see the mistakes that were made and had devastating results.  Pete was one of them who knew better but he was set to save the world and use his gifts.  He only created chaos and fear.  Pat on the other hand used his gift for the good and kept secret the bad he would “see.”  

As Pete’s voice became a high shrill over the group of clairvoyant members that had gathered for their monthly meeting, he prophesied, “the end is near!”  Pat immediately jumped up from across the room and literally ran over to calm his childhood friend.  

“Pete, we know what you are seeing but right now we need to keep calm and stick to the meeting agenda that is going on tonight,” he gently reminded him.  

“But –“

“It’s ok, just not tonight.  We can discuss it over coffee tomorrow at my house in the morning, say 10:00 am?  You’ll be there, right?” 

“Yeah, sure, I guess as he slowly moved to sit down again and regain his composure.  “Not sure what came over me but it seems like it is happening more and more.”

“I know my friend.  You’ll be okay, he assured him.  “Maybe we should go see Dr. Moore next week and find out if he can help you with the new procedure he is testing.  He would like you to try it –“

“I don’t think I’m ready for it and I’m not sure or really clear as to why I need it”, he interrupted Pat as though he was longer remembering what just happened.   

“Let’s talk about it tomorrow and I’ll invite Jack and he can explain it to you.  You do remember Jack, Dr. Moore’s assistant?”

“Not really.  I’ll be there anyway.  Better get back to the meeting Pat.  I don’t want to miss the Extra-sensory perception (ESP) coverage Joan is going to start covering in her presentation.  See you tomorrow.”

Pat knew what Pete couldn’t remember.  His dear friend and clairvoyant buddy had a head injury a few years back and would have random outburst and then not remember why.  His gift only made things worse.  Yes, it was a gift at one time but now a curse.

Mazzy The Mermaid Princess by Carol Eliassen

Queen Eldora is banished by her husband the King from her immortal home to live among the human race as a mortal woman. A miracle occurs during the birth of her Granddaughter that sets her free and drives her to find out the true reason of her betrayal.   Along the way she begins to understand what motivates her and stays true to herself when it comes to love and forgiveness even while facing her greatest enemy. And so it begins:   The Birth of Mazzy The Mermaid Princess  by Author Carol Eliassen Chapter One: The Crossroads of Baku   Figure 2: Artwork by Artist Stephanie Broker   “Eternity begins and ends with the ocean’s tides” - Unknown Author      Something was different today. The tides of the Caspian Sea seemed to sway in perfect rhythm. I cannot fully understand it or describe it in perfect detail. Trust me it was different. It seemed that something perfect and magical was happening in the seas below. I did not know what but whatever i

What About You?

What About You? You may have free will,  that is true. Picking your path  without a clue.  You look to your own device knowing  you will only gain the world.  I can't emphasize enough that  in the end it will fade like a mural.  Your eyes are closed as  the world draws you in.  I can pray for you, but without God  my words just melt in the wind.  You sow what you reap.  We all do, be it for good or evil.  The difference you may ask  is not what equals.  The difference is God,  the rapture is true,  we shall ascend, but  what about you?  There is a slim chance  on a tribulation date,  you will have to sacrifice your body  on God's holy slate.  You can ask him to save your soul  in a world filled with fool's gold. Your reward will be to enter the gates  made of pearls but void of hate!  Eternity is my goal.  I want to take you as I go.  Don't hesitate to preach the love  as the Holy Spirit makes you bold.  Go in true love. Go in peace.  Listen to the WORD  and eternal lif

I Can't See You

I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  I feel you with my hands  when I touch what you have made.  The world is full of your creations, we should all be amazed! I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  When I'm alone,  I know you are with me  I feel your presence in the air, the water, the breeze in the trees, the aroma from the flowers, and the miracle of the tiny seeds.  I can't see you,   but I know you are there.   I see the birds fly across the sky,  I see the water move in waves,  I see what your hands have made I even looked in the mirror and saw the miracle you molded in my mother's womb. I can't see you,   but I know you are there. I hear the birds chirping outside,  they are music flying in the sky.  No need to clothe or feed  for your hand I do not see  keeps them filled, clothed, and free. I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  The creatures so small,  and under a microscope detailed in a complex look  which only a Creator coul
