I am here looking for answers and generally someone to genuinely connect with, who I can be open with about my expiearence. Maybe even offer advice or perhaps offer what knowledge I have to others.

So far, through long periods of research, I have come to the conclusion that I am clairvoyant, but that is the only "official" term I feel comfortable using. I have several abilities aside from that but I just don't have enough answers to give them a label.

The issues that I am facing are in the area of development. Some of these gifts are slow moving and expiearences I have had using them are super random and almost uncontrolable. They surprise me at rather inconvenient intervals, and some times I'm not even sure what actually just happened.

I am in no way a spiritual person, and I am not really very interested in religion, although I guess if I had to claim something maybe Wicca would be the closest thing to my own personal values.

I suppose I am an introverte, I have unnecessary anxiety thanks to my "gifts", and it makes it difficult to exist with other people.

I am an animal lover, I have 3 cats, 2 dogs, and 3 fishtanks with several little fishies in them.
 
Psychic Experiences from Nepheara

I Dream Of Demons on 2018-01-31

Let's chat about demons. I am aware this site isn't specifically for dreams, but I believe this goes beyond a dream, and dives into my ability to connect and speak with entities beyond the Physical Realm. I will explain myself in just a moment. Firstly let me apologize, I haven't been on the sit...

Black Orb on 2016-05-24

Orbs. Where do I even start. I see them every single day. Tons of them, in a rainbow of colors and brightness. They are like flies or something else that buzzes about the air. Constantly whizzing by my face, across the room, through doors and walls, even through people. They are the same as backgrou...

Confirmation on 2016-05-21

This will likely be a bit shorter than my other submissions, and the purpose is to ask a question that will hopefully lead to some understanding or connection on my part, that I am not alone in this. Let me start off by giving a bit of a story to help explain my point of view. In case you ha...

Ouija Sister on 2016-05-15

My sister, 11 years old at the time, claims to have had this experience back in 1991 - my birth year - and according to her it has everything to do with me even though I didn't quite exist yet. This is a very sensitive story for me. It is almost (mentally) abusive in nature, so please take cauti...

The Mystery Of The Missing Toilet Paper on 2016-05-12

I have been psychic my whole life. More specifically I am what you call clairvoyant, among other things. I can see, hear and speak with spirits. I do this on a daily bases, so it is a common occurrence for me to meet a "new buddy" in the most random of places. It's like I am a beacon for spirits...

Lock Pick? on 2016-05-11

I have always been kind of different in contrast to my friends or family. I have been able to see, feel and hear spirits from a young age. These particular gifts made my parents uncomfortable I guess, and because of that I never really had much of a support system with these kinds of issues. So ...

I also am doubting it's an actual diabolical force. While I don't really have experience with anything diabolical exactly, I have run into what I believe could have been on past occasions. This does feel negative but it doesn't feel like what those past occasions felt like.

I have been using sage, I sage when I feel the need and I use holy wood when I feel the need.

I feel if this was actually a demon it would be much much worse than nightmares.

The only part that gets me is the sudden disappearance of my clairvoyant nature. I'm not sure what's going on there. I am starting to speculate that this may be self caused. I have no idea how or why but that's where my mind is at currently.

I have been using a salt lamp actually, I just got one for this past holiday season! I love it.

Thanks so much for your input and the info you have provided.

Thank you for sharing your story with me. I appriciate that I am not alone in these kinds of expiearences and I realize sharing that may have been difficult for you. I hope you are able to find your way out of that darkness soon, I can't imagine how isolating that can be.

I'm not a very religious person. To be completely honest, I don't believe in a god. I realize that's probably supremely taboo in this kind of situation, but I have never believed in a god of any kind. I have never had this kind of issue until recently.

I don't go to church and I know this is going to sound super super weird but churches and bibles and all of that stuff just makes me super uncomfortable. It always has for as long as I can remember.

I can't justify in any way suddenly preying (or whatever else) to a god or other being that I don't believe in. That seems foolish. Why would I put forth the effort if my heart isn't in it?

I have always done things among my own power. In other words - I have never relied on a religious aspect to guide me or the development of my skills. I have helped spirits move on without the use of god and I have purified my space without the invocation of anything more than my very will.

I understand that's not necessarily how all things work and in NO way do I believe I am "untouchable" but it's just not my path to seek god.

Maybe that's not how demons work - If that's even what this thing is. But that is how I work, and if this is something diabolical then I need to deal with it in a way that I can truly put my energy behind. In a way that I can put my heart and mind behind it.

It has to be a way that I can truly support because a half hearted attempt won't get the job done and in my life currently I believe in me.

Thank you for your thoughts and your advice. I really appreciate that you took time to read this and offer some suggestion and well wishes!

You see I am an extremely blunt person also, and unlike you I have no fear of saying what I feel is a necessity to say.

I feel I need to express what I'm about to say but please understand that I in no way mean any offense by it!

I appreciate your advice, thank you for taking time to read my plight and offer a message in response. But to be perfectly honest with you, I got warning bells just from reading your screen name, which is something that I mentioned experiencing actually, in the story above. They happen for more then just being close to otherworldly entities in my particular case.

I am in no way suggesting that you're wrong, or that you're telling tall tales, I'm just not too sure I am 100% with you on a lot of the information you have offered.

But I do sincerely appreciate your willingness to offer such services of yourself to a complete stranger. You're right, the world is quick to judge especially for people like us. I have experienced that firsthand unfortunately. You are brave to offer what you do.

I think for the time being I may need to seek a second opinion, though.

Thanks again!

So firstly, I don't believe I am empathic at all. Nothing more than the typical intuition that comes with the general learning curve of being a good person. I can't control my abilities hardly at all but I know my strenghts and I can say with confidence that I'm not empathic.

Also, I cleanse my home weekly both with sage and holy wood. I anoint my halls and doors and windows during this time. I also keep various items around my home, in my pack and on my person (at all times) to assist me in remaining grounded and to protect me. I have a very well cleaned space that is protected and I keep it actively blessed.

I feel my abilities to keep it this way are fairly in shape. I have no doubt that my home is extremely well protected - I am anal about it.

I have no idea what this thing is or how it got in, that's part of why I'm so lost and concerned.

Laurencat,

Meditation was never my thing. I was always told that it's a good place to start but the only thing I ever got out of it was a bad experience.

However, you sound like you have a plan! That is fantastic! I will say though, take precautions to protect yourself while you meditate. When you meditate you open yourself up, and that makes it easy for you to reach a more spiritual level but it can also make you a target. My bad experience comes from not knowing that before hand. So just be careful. Some people never have a problem with it and may even say there is no need, but it never hurts to put in place a plan to protect you self from psychic or spiritual attacks.

Chakras were never my thing either, actually. I don't even know much about them, other than a particular expiearence where a red energy (in my minds eye) completely enveloped a sore part of my body and it fixed the issue. I initially was trying to meditate and envision a white healing light, that is what I was told to do, but the red rush of energy just kind of popped up out of nowhere and it was like instant pain relief.

It was accidental the first time, the second time I kind of made it happen. I haven't been able to do it since. Then again I havn't put a lot of effort into it because I havn't needed it.

As far as it being a sport, probably not lol some people have an expiearence and that close encounter is enough to wake their abilities, even if before they were not sensitive. Some people are born with it. There are even people who just wake up one day and they can do it. Sometimes its a gradual process and sometimes everything just falls on someone's shoulders all at once. Everybody's situation is unique so it really depends. There is definitely a good chance to develop something with hard work and diligence, talent aside. They say everybody is psychic in some way, deep down.

Besides, hard work will always out weight talent that never practices.

Keep up the good work:D

Gabbie and Berellic,

Orbs are a part of my daily life. I am also able to see full body spirits and communicate with them daily. So I agree that the orb is one of the most simple manifestations, but in my expiearence they manifest that way because they are unable to, or don't want to, do so at a higher level. So it's not that I can't see what is "beyond" the orb, it's that they can't (or don't want to) show me, at least not in the moment.

That being said, I guess what shocked me was the color of the orb and how aggressive it seemed to be. I know that spirits can manifest in a ton of different ways, but with orbs specifically, I have never before seen a back one, and never after.

With what little knowledge I have of the darker aspect to these gifts, I was able to connect that generally aggressive and darkly colored energies tend to be bad. However, with those energies I normally become distressed or upset on some level, and that distress is what let's me know just what I am dealing with. This orb didn't make me feel much of anything, other than the initial panic of noticing something flying towards my face.

I have considered that perhaps it was just a negative energy trying to mess with me, I mean I did dive from my bed into the floor. At the time I was going through a depressed kind of state, the place I lived in was not the best area to live and it was difficult for me. Perhaps it was something being drawn in by that emotion? I'm not sure. You don't think it was something on the more demonic or oppressive side trying to attack me do you?

I have expiearence with demonic energies but this wasn't like that at all. Those energies were overwhelming for me, this may as well not have existed at all as far as my feeling anything from it is concerned.

I am very careful to keep everything cleaned and guarded in my new home. I had to learn the hard way how to do that and why it is important so I am very picky about it. It has helped me a lot, thankfully:D

Thank you both for your input ♡

Laurencat,

While the situations and reasoning may not be the same, the idea behind the issues agree. Not being accepted by your family for who you are, that is. Being dismissed in general is really hard.

I am super proud of you for being the woman that you are though. It seems to me that while a transition is difficult, you are still kicking. You havn't given up no matter the lack of acknowledgement from people who are supposed to be there to support you. That takes a lot more courage than I will ever have.

You are right, it is a situation where you have to believe in yourself - for both of us.

Noticing stuff like that, or hyper-vigilance to a specific thing (if you have ruled out medical issues) can some times be interpreted as a "sign", depending on how you would like to take it.

I learned early on that if I am noticing something a lot (like how you are noticing more paranormal stuff or psychic stuff, even in movies) there is a reason for it, and I typically investigate what I am seeing - but not always. I don't really view this as a sign, per se, but more like following my instinct. If I am noticing something a lot but I don't have that... I guess you could call it an " instinctual pull", I tend to let it go more often than not.

I just kind of listen to my gut or intuition with any hyper-vigilance I expiearence. Just remember your health should always come first so no matter what your gut is saying, think through what is going on and don't put yourself in a dangerous situation.

For some reason, I want to suggest to you to maybe explore Reiki, or spiritual healing. I don't really have any foundation for that suggestion. Just one of those gut feelings.

Take care and stay strong.

Gabbie,

I'm sorry that you have to go through this, but also, I am relieved if not a bit happy to know that I am not alone in this struggle. It is a weight off my shoulders to be able to truly connect with somebody with this specific issue and know that at least one person understands.

I have been trying for years to tell them, and work with them. Easing them into it wasn't going well so I just decided to throw all my chips onto the table and say "here you go", after all, they already scoff at me or ignore me, what more could they do?

Still, I try to help them learn and understand. But it's almost like a losing battle. In one ear and out the other.

It took a slap in the face for my mother to realize I was being serious and I am still suspicious that she still doesn't quite believe me.

It's a real fight to be so let down by those who you are supposed to be able to rely on the most.

I was always taught to be honest and open, to communicate. What happens when the people you are trying to communicate with don't want to listen?

Even worse, what if they punish you for telling the truth? Simply because they refuse to try and understand. It is like they would prefer ignorance. And that mess leaves you tramatized, and scared to be who you are ment to be.

Ignorance is bliss I guess. If they don't acknowledge it, it isn't real. My older sister is sensitive as well, though not to my same degree, and she has flat out told me that she doesn't want to be open to it or learn about it. It baffles me.

But maybe you are right. Perhaps this is a matter that I should have been more cautious with. I don't know.

I will be here if and when they decide they want to listen but I think I am going to take your advice and just work on myself for a while.

I appreciate your response, it has been very refreshing for me.

Take care! I am always here if you want to share more thoughts.

I'm not really a spiritual person, ironically. It's just not my thing. Religion in general is really not something I am comfortable with.

However, the idea did cross my mind. There doesn't seem to be anything particularly divine about the flashes that would or could clue me in as to where they may come from, though.

I have gotten extremes on both ends of the spectrum but nothing to justify a notion of divinity. So I'm not all that confident that it may be a thing from "above" offering communication.

Because nothing strikes me as heavenly, angelic, demonic, godly etc. And I am not too confident where they could come from or why they could happen, I have not ruled it out, but I'm not sure how much I agree or am comfortable with the thought.

They just kind of happen, anything and everything triggers them, and they are about super random stuff.

As for meditation, again that isn't really my thing. But I have tried it on and off for several years (consistently for about 3 years at a time). I never seem to get any results in this area, and the one time something did happen (the last time I got really into it and felt like I was actually making minute progress) it was a rather negative experience, so I'm a bit concerned about trying it out again.

I have tried other methods, though, that seem to work for my other abilities so far. It's just this particular thing that I can't seem to really get the hang of.

Thank you for your input:D

It's always hard when somebody we are taught to trust and rely on from birth refuses to do something as simple as listen when we are going through a difficult issue that nobody, including ourselves, understands.

The only thing we can really do is try. Try to explain and try to help others understand. If they refuse to take part in that struggle, then we turn to others who are willing to assist us, like the community on this site for example.

Thank you for your input!:D
It has been my expiearence that spiritual, psychic and even some physical activity will target adolescents. Easy pickin if you catch my drift.

Children are essentially defenceless and during development they go through a slurry of emotions and thoughts, it would be very easy to fit itself into any cracks. Being that you were very young when this started, you were prime prey.

Keep in mind your physical and mental health. Have you been seen by a specialist? Have you ruled out medical conditions that could be causing issues?

If so, from what I have read, it seems to me that this is a rather unpleasant attachment. Perhaps some kind of parasite that feeds off of your negativity. Maybe borderline demonic in nature, if you feel it is the cause of you wanting to harm yourself or others.

It's important to resist. It is your mind, your body and your choice. Remember that. Tell it no. When you start to get angry, find a way to ground yourself, don't let that emotion carry you.

You are the one with the power in this situation, the only reason any entity would have any form of power over you is because you have allowed it (however unknowingly) to happen. Take back that control, put your foot down. Don't let this think taken you for a joy ride anymore.

It's not easy, and it won't be simple. You could try a few things to help purify the area as well.

Smudging is something that I do regularly to my own home. You find a stick of sage, (we can buy it about anywhere around here, perhaps try a grocery store or specialty store. If not there then online) I personally use white sage, sat in a bowl to catch any bits that may fall, light it on fire. It will smoke like incense. Waft that smoke into ALL CORNERS of every single room, closet, box... Anything that has a space.

While doing this invite only light and love into your life, and banish all negativity. I do this through visualization. It helps me to vocalize my goal as well. However you must keep in mind that you can't just say it. You can't just think it. You have to believe it. You have to be concrete in your goal and what you want the outcome to be.

I also make a personal habit to ground myself and to meditate every day to help build defence against any attacks. Because you already may have an attachment, take caution. Opening yourself through meditation or even accidentally could make it worse, if you don't know what you are doing or you are new to the idea.

In general take caution as well. Any actions you take that are against what this thing wants may cause retaliation, depending on exactly what this thing may be.

If all else fails, call in an expert to document any activity, and preform whatever kind of banishment or purification you are comfortable with, that will help rid you of this attachment.

These are just my personal experiences, and things that I have found to help me. I hope maybe they can help you too.

Stay strong.

I have a lot of anxiety and I have had it for many years. I actually ended up on Prozac myself for a short time and I encountered something similar.

I personally stopped taking the pills and that fixed my blockage. I ended up learning how to fight my anxiety on my own.

I think maybe it has something to do with how the pills work on the brain. Anxiety and depression are chemical inbalances, and medication is used to "correct" those inbalances by giving or blocking X thing to help smooth out the situation. However, in doing so, they block or engorged the pathways that allow you to enjoy your perception, causing your gifts to be thrown off or cut off - or maybe perhaps even more intense than before, depending. (Don't quote me on any of that, it is just my best guess)

I also learned that in some cases (and in my specific case), it has been said that some people expiearence anxiety when their abilities are growing or are going into "hibernation" in order to start awakening more.

I am in NO WAY telling you to throw away your medication. I am not a medical professional and that would be irresponsible of me. However, use your best judgment. You could perhaps try a different anxiety medication, or take up meditation or yoga to help maintain your anxiety. Exercise helps me a lot. But always do what you think is best for you and your wellbeing.
