I guess I'm in the dime-a-dozen category of having a few psychic tendencies and occurrences but would not be considered super psychic or mediumistic. My psychic experiences are not major and focus usually around simple telepathy, a very good "knowing" or intuition about daily events (like that my son's bus wouldn't come one day and it didn't, stuff like that), one (only one) precognitive dream that came true (about a family member), and also major empathy about people and the world. My empathy focuses only on the living. I've never felt actual energy from any person or spirit, just emotions. I've also had the occasional premonition - a brief picture of something to happen within a few minutes. Oh, and sometimes I'll give an excuse to get out of something without awkwardness and that excuse will ALWAYS come true. I used to think these things were normal. Maybe they are.
I've had a few dreams of bright white lights followed by a feeling of nausea (in my dream) and a few dreams of pages of books flipping quickly. I've also had dreams of what look like astrological symbols turning around on a wheel quickly. These are not major but I think they are just strange.
I do meditate about 40 minutes daily and am trained in Reiki lev. 1. During meditation I've seen bright white lights and daily I see purple as I go through a Reiki/chakra healing meditation. But that is normal for that type of meditation.
I consider myself spiritual and in tune similar to what the "Indigo" traits are. But nothing major. I'm just trying to be a good mom to my two kids and loving wife to my husband.
But there is one experience I did have about 18 years ago that has me confused. Although at an early age I was heavily into reincarnation and spirits, I never had a ghostly sighting or experience. Until one night when I awoke out of a perfectly sound sleep to a peaceful glowing face of what the typical picture of Jesus looks like. It was an image of just a face with a white aura then a gold one outside of the white one. I stared in shock. It wouldn't go away. It just looked at me. I was not afraid.
Then I started to wonder if it would ever go away. So I pulled the covers over my head for a few seconds. I looked out again and it was still there. Then I got a bit creeped out because I didn't know what to do or if I should look at it until it went away. So I buried my head in the covers again as my heart pounded. I then fell asleep. It was not a negative energy at all. I never knew what to make of it. I just thought that it was God's way of telling me he's looking after me.
Since I've read literally millions of ghost stories over the past 25 years, it would seem that people who see, hear or feel spirits are mediums or maybe just slight mediums. Do you think that is accurate? Because there obviously are people who don't see or hear spirits at all, even though we all are a bit psychic, but not all are psychic AND mediumistic. But are those that hear or see spirits considered mediums, even if the spirit contact was just ONE time?
It just seems that there are so many "regular" people have a ghost story to tell and I always wonder if they are mediums and just don't know it? For instance, if someone has a dream about a loved one who just died who is saying goodbye to them, does that mean that person who was contacted by their relative has mediumistic tendencies? Or if you feel a cold breeze and you feel suddenly sad, does that mean anything? If so, then millions of people would be considered a medium on some level, right? There are strong mediums and the once-in-a-while medium, I'm guessing. WHat do you think?
I don't consider myself as having any kind of medium-spirit contact ability, yet I did have that experience when I saw that face.
