Recently, a seer named Morgan left a very compelling comment and some questions related to sharing what she sees in the spirit realm.
I’ve received many questions along these same lines, and so I thought it was time to attempt an answer. Instead of trying to summarize Morgan’s comment, here it is in full:
Ever since I became a Christian I’ve been able to see things in the spirit. I’ve been able to see heaven, angels, demons, etc.. I’ve had visions of things that have yet to come, and I’ve had visions of things based on the end times in Revelations.
When I first became a Christian and I could see things, I thought it was normal, I thought everyone could do what I do, but when I told my sisters who were also Christians, and told our bible study group that were teaching us how to use our spiritual gifts for God, they were so baffled and shocked, as if I was doing something completely unheard of.
Unfortunately, as I’m sure many of you understand, they grew to become jealous and envious because I was doing something that seemed impossible especially after being a Christian for only a few days or weeks, and them being in a relationship with God for years, and yet I was the one doing it and not them, they didn’t understand.
And because they didn’t understand, because they decided to put God in a box, they started to disbelieve me, be fearful, anxious. Using me as their excuse, as their reason to doubt God. My siblings, began to use my gifts as a reason for them believe that they weren’t special. As if what God has gifted me to do suddenly makes them unworthy of what God wants to use them for.
It’s for this reason, that I’ve become a bit reluctant to even talk about what I see or what God reveals to me, because every instance, the enemy has used what God has given me to stir up an intimacy with God, into something that often feels like a curse, into something that I’m unable to talk about because people immediately start to believe I’m either lying, delusional, or that I’m listening to the devil and doing his work.
But reading about all of you who’ve seen things, what do you suggest when it comes to telling people things? Or should I not tell anyone at all?
I need some help from people who understand.
I hear this concern a lot. What am I supposed to do with what I am seeing? How can I reveal what I see without being rejected? Without doing more harm than good?
A Simple Answer?
The answer is big one, and I’ve danced around it for months.
So, now I’m going to attempt to provide some direction for seers to consider when deciding what to tell people about the things they see.
I have been tempted to offer a simple solution. But like a lot of the discussion about the seer gift, there’s no simple solution that fits every situation.
I am more interested in providing a way for you to think about this problem, a model that is flexible enough to bring to just about any situation in which you are seeing in the spirit realm and want to share with someone what you’re seeing.
In this post, I’m giving an overview of the model, and then we’ll jump in to what it means and how you can apply it.

This is a work in progress, and ultimately, I may release it in an introductory book I’m working on for seers and those who love them. For now, I’ll call it the…
5-Step Seer Sharing Model
The problem is this: How do I know what seer information I should share with others? Here is a summary of this model. I’ll break out each point in detail over the coming weeks.
1. Understand what you’re trying to accomplish.
You see things others can’t. You’ve been given this ability for a purpose, but it may be unclear what this purpose is.
So first, we’ll look at just what the point of the gift is, and help you to understand just what you’re trying to accomplish with revealing to others what you see. What’s the point of revealing what you see? Why did God give it to you? I’ll offer a grid to think about this.
2. Understand where they are at.
People are all over the place with their understanding of the things of God and the spirit realm. Seemingly mature Christians are often baffled at basic spiritual concepts which you routinely see. Some even react extremely negatively when seers reveal what they see.
Similarly, nonbelievers are all over the map regarding how they might handle what you reveal. I’ll offer a way to evaluate people and situations so you can best choose if and when and how much to reveal, so that the mission discussed in step 1 is advanced.
3. Decide what to say.
Based on steps 1 and 2, you’ll be equipped to select how to reveal what you see, when to reveal what you see, and how much to reveal what you see. You’ll be able to select language that is most acceptable to the people you are speaking to.
Now the hard part. You have to take steps. You have to act. You have to actually speak.
And just like in the book of Acts, the most important aspect of this step is to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit. (Get it? The step is called Act, and the model is the book of Acts…)
You’ve spoken. Has your information been received? Go back to Step 2 and determine if you should continue onto steps 3 and 4 again. In some cases, you may need to reevaluate why you are revealing what you see (step 1).
The ability to seer spirits and other things in the spirit realm has a God-given purpose. In fact, the same can be said for all skills and abilities God has graced you with. Have you considered just what the purpose could be?
Bite Sized Pieces
It’s tempting to just put the entire answer out in a single, very long post. But I don’t think that would be very helpful. I want to break it into bite-sized pieces, so you can better digest what I’m trying to offer. So next week, we’ll jump into a more detailed look into Step 1.
