Real Psychic Experiences

I've Been Lost For 16 Years


Really I just don't know where to turn anymore. It's hard to find people who understand what I'm talking about.

I've had countless, seriously countless unexplained experiences. Most of them of an unwelcoming type of energy. Honestly, it was terrifying as a child, and to this day I sleep with my tv and a light on (I'm 24 haha) It feels pathetic to have to be so scared but it makes me feel more safe not being in the dark.

Aside from these experiences I've always had this incredible sense of, sort of feeling what others are feeling. I mean not everybody. Only if I feel a connection with them.

One of the many examples was of a very new friend telling me how her daughter died. Now there is feeling bad for somebody who has had to go through a hard time, and there is feeling a deep remorse inside yourself... Something similar to the type of loss they are feeling. I started to cry when she was telling me about this.

Recently I've started meditating and I've noticed I have this very intense and precise sense of people's energy. In a way. How they are feeling, or what they are thinking.:S

An example of this is one of the guys I work with who is very reserved and was doing his normal day to day thing and I just got this incredible sense that his energy was off, he was different. So I asked him, and he was surprised by my question as he didn't feel he was being any different. His grandfather passed away.

I've had many "psychic" experiences. Or at least what I would consider psychic. If it's somebody I'm close to when the phone rings I know it's them... When a text comes in on my phone before I open my phone I can sense which person it's from out of the people I've been recently texting. My boyfriend and I are very close. Best friends of 10 years. He will have two different items in his hands and put them behind his back, I tell him to try and really tell me with his mind which hand the item I am going to guess is in. I always get it. It's like he can tell me without saying anything. I am probably the closest with my boyfriend "soul" wise. He lives 5 hours away. Every*single*time he is feeling sad, angry, sick, really happy. Any emotion that is out of his normal state of emotion I feel too. Especially when he's sick.

I don't know how many times I've been doing my own thing and get images of my boyfriend in my head and have the urge to check my phone and he texts me.

Anyways I explain all this because I want help! The usefulness of feeling people and really relating to people is. Well there are no words. I can connect with people and really give them a sense of "somebody understands" in a profound way. What sucks about this is that I can't control it. I can't "feel" (the special type of feelings I have talked about) with just anybody. And I also can't control how much of the sadness I take into my own soul of somebody that I can "feel" with. When I worked on the oncology floor one of my patient's passed on my shift. And my peers were learning from his body some medical things. A lot of them were laughing and making jokes (it is a normal reaction to death, they aren't just jerks lol) but I felt. I mean I can barely find the words because I don't think the words I'm using explain even in the slightest what I'm trying to convey, but I felt like so sad, so insulted. So lost. I don't know, but they didn't feel like my own emotions. It felt like I was feeling somebody elses emotions, like I would when my friend was telling me about her daughter... Sensing another person's emotions.

I want to learn more about what the hell is going on with me. But I've had so many scary paranormal experiences. I feel like I would be playing with fire. Maybe opening doors I shouldn't, if this makes sense.

I really hope somebody can help me. Or even just tell me their similar experiences so I don't feel alone. Because right now, my boyfriend and my mom are the only people who really I wouldn't even say believe, just don't judge me when I talk about this stuff. I'm starting to feel like I'm crazy.

Thank you soo soo much to those who reply. I've been going through all these types of things since I was around 7 years old. I need some answers.

Unbelievable. I feel like a brand new person and much much closer to understanding the things I know that await. I can't believe the difference in me. I am calm and collected and just... Extremely balanced. I feel like all cloudiness is gone. I can read people and really use it to my advantages.
It's crazy really. I've been doing a lot more meditation as well and I feel (sounds silly) but like I've finally come together with the wiser me I always was in tune with but couldn't get a firm hold of. Very spiritual feeling I'm talking about.

There is much to all of our experiences, as too I am exsperiencing more these days since I was about 7 also. For you, as well as for me, I have learned that we have to maintain a high level of peace & joy, even so with just sitting there quiet imagining where you feel so glad to be. Imagine the colors, the textures, the smells, the elation, etc.

Feel the clarity and absorb the happiness. One great exercise is to watch children play and play with them.

Work on expressing your goodness that doesn't involve a returned paycheck. It is what works for me. It is priceless on the exchange.

Cultivate a happy environment as much as you can and try to be sure to cleanse as others have mentioned to you. Yes, filtered water, drink plenty of it, stay away from sugared products, meats, and remember to eat your daily green veggies. It is important as all of it feeds your body and your energy to deal with life. Get out in nature, get plenty of sunshine, go for bike rides, or nature walks, remember to listen to nature, the birds, the animals, the trees, everything has a subtle energy and that is where we heal ourselves.

To be silly, but for you to remember, think Mary Poppins 'Think Happy Thoughts'. What a trip.

And always, always, be good, do good, feel good... And may you sense the energy lift to another level of constant elation.

Peace be with you,

Yes! This feels like it's the type of thing I'm talking about. I'm absolutely going to do this and look more into the advice from the woman in the video. Thank you so much:D

Hi Carisa
It sounds like you are very in tune with everything and everybody around you, and sometimes it's very uncomfortable and makes you feel like you've blown a fuse,doesn't it? I think what everybody here has given as suggestion to you will benefit you greatly in the future, but I will add that drinking lots of water, is also beneficial in helping your body be nourished, and "fluid", by washing all the toxins and energies out as well. I completely understand how hard it is to be around the ill, or depressed folks, because you do feel as if you are them! I'm putting in a link that you can look at and see if it works for you, it has for me. Http://
She has many different things you can try to protect yourself from energies invading yours. Take care

Hey to all,
The more I read up on empaths, the more I don't think I am one. Diamonds, you talk about a little girl that hit her head and you felt her emotions. Something like that has never happened to me. I don't randomly feel people's emotions.

For example, if I have a patient and they fall and hurt themselves I don't feel their pain, I don't feel their worry or anxiety. I am of course concerned and will help them up, but I feel nothing of their emotions. However if that same patient is telling me of how sad she is that she never sees her kids and she feels like her life is over, I will feel an incredible sense of being in her position and this brings on why I can feel her emotions.

I actually had a similar experience to that example. I had a patient that was wheelchair bound and couldn't feed herself or anything. She was so depressed. I went to talk to her (being concerned) and she was telling me about how everyday is the same thing, nobody visits her, she gets up, eats, sits in the same spot, eats, sits, and goes back to bed, everyday. And what I felt wasn't just a sadness for the situation she was in, but I felt what she must be feeling. It bothered me so much I was distracted by it for a few weeks.
This being said, I can't just walk past her and feel what she's feeling.

And what is with my paranormal experiences? Am I feeling dead people? Lol Why does it seem that people that are empaths, have so many paranormal experiences? Anybody have a guess?

As for seeing energies as in my previous post. I don't know if it really is an energy or what? I can take it away from them, willingly. But it's not like I gain anything from it, or that they seemingly lose anything from it. I really don't see the point in it lol.

I feel like I can sense auras... Without seeing any aura lol. But I sure would LOVE to learn how to do that. But I can tell if my aura is cloudy or not for sure.

Hey sorry I don't have a lot of advice, cause I'm still new to all this. But it sounds like your an empath, like me. For me I've found one way to kind of instantly block emotions out, cause I don't have control of it either. Is you close your eyes & imagine a door, with all the emotions inside it. & then close the door, open your eyes and you'll feel calm again. I saw that online & tried it, it works for me. But I've found that I have to be alone & in quiet to do it. Which is hard to do sometimes. Hope I helped! & if it makes you feel better read my story. You're not alone on this at all. I felt the same way, but surprisingly there are a lot of people like us. But anyway, good luck!:)

If there is something, someone, this one there the whole day. Think it this way. To I was passing, a few years ago, but with images. The own mind knows that it is going to go to bed.

The shield isn't to block the emotions it's to keep the emotions at bay. You'll still feel emotions but it just won't be over whelming. When you feel that you are strong enough to handle all the emotions, you cancel out the shield. I wrote this in my last post but I accidentally erased it. I only realized my mistake when I read your post about blocking the empathy.
I am sorry about the misunderstanding.

Thank you lilylove and crazy14 for your comments.

Crazy14, I can't feel people's energies as say if I were to walk around in a mall and feel everybody. But anybody I interact with their body language, even what they don't notice they are doing is incredibly easy for me to read and understand. People I interact with, no matter what the circumstances will enjoy my company because my body will become in sync with them. This has actually hindered me in a way really as well as being handy. I have a very *very* hard time being in a group situation. Because I feel there are too many personalities to read at once and respond to all of them in a proper way.

You both talk about the two different options I have; to create a bubble to block it out, or to embrace it. All this time I've been making a bubble in a sense. I want to embrace it, but like I said I feel like once you embrace it, you can't go back. It's a big decision.

It sounds a great deal like me many years back, when I had much less control of my abilities. Yes I would definitely say that you are an empath, and that can be rather hard to deal with, especially when you can't control it.
Some people prefer to create a shield to keep themselves from feeling it, I prefer to simply let it all in, but I could create a shield if I wish as well.
Everywhere I go I feel everyone's emotions, basking in it as a form of communication where I'm feeding off the energy and emotions of others, good or bad. With it comes understanding and being connected to everyone, something I wouldn't trade for anything. I feel I understand everyone.
You mention in another post that you can see energy. If it is the energy transferred from person to person or just from them to you, the best way to control it is to learn to follow those energy paths given off to the people you wish to read or feel. Then pay attention to what you feel. It really is beautiful what is found in each individual person.

You have psychic abilities.
You are an Empath, a strong empath.
Empathy is the ability to feel the emotions of others.
Your empathy is strong. You need to create a shield to keep your empathy at bay.
Please try this technique I use, it helps a lot.

Sit or stand
Just be comfortable
Take deep breaths
Relax your mind for several minutes
When you are calm
Imagine a bubble full of love and positive energy
Surrounding you, protecting you and preventing outside emotions from entering.
Come out of the deep state slowly.

You have intuition.
Intuition is knowing something without being aware of how you know it.
This is how you know who calls or text message before you look to see who's looking for you
You should try meditating. Meditation is very helpful, it helps keep our psychic abilities in balance and it's very relaxing.
I hope this answers your questions.
