Seeing Animal Spirits And Feeling Spirits?


My name is Rachel, and I am 18 years old. Within this past year, I have been dealing with an influx of "odd" experiences, so to speak. Sometimes I feel very strongly about situations or people for no reason. In better terms, sometimes I have an odd sense as to when someone or some situation may lead to harm or bad consequences. I also know I have empathic abilities. I tend to know when people lie about how they're feeling, although I don't tend to press the issue because I know how it feels to not want to talk about things. I can tell when people are sad, when they're confused, when they're sick. Sometimes when my friends are sick, when I go home after hanging out, I am temporarily sick like they were. I need to work on that somehow because I am sick a lot. I wonder if that has to do with myself not being properly protected from all psychic experiences? I don't know, just typing aloud now, lol.

I have also had a few dreams that have came true. I had a dream that I broke something, and I did 4 days later. Two days ago I had a dream about some cops (I'm not going in detail, it's irrelevant). After I woke up, I went downstairs and my mom was watching TV. Who did I see? The cop I saw in my dream. Experiences regarding my dreams are usually small, and have no affect on my day. Nonetheless, they happen. I have only had deja vu a few times, which one was during a dream. I was taking a nap and had a dream that my brother came in my room and asked what I wanted to eat. I told him and he left. When he closed my door in the dream, I woke up to him opening my door in real life and asking what I wanted to eat. I naturally freaked out telling him that just happened. He just told me I was crazy. That was my first experience with deja vu.

On another note, I am not able to see or communicate with spirits, but I am able to feel the presence of them. A lot of times I will be out with my friends and I will quickly look over to the side of me because I feel like someone is next to me, or over my shoulder. I look and see nothing. I feel as if it is the same presence following me, always over my shoulder. My friends see me looking around, freaking out and they ask what's up. I tell them I thought someone had just been next to me and they say nobody has been near me, BUT I FEEL IT. I wouldn't look if I didn't think someone was off to my side.

Lastly, for a few weeks I had some odd experiences regarding cats... This is the only time I have actually seen a spirit. I see this cat, it's a medium sized cat. It has short, fluffy black fur and a curious nature. I tend to only see it with my boyfriend. I can only see it out of my peripheral vision, but once I look directly where it was, it's gone. One of the times that I saw it, it had such bright green, glowing eyes. Almost unnatural. I see cats everywhere I go. I will be out driving, and I will randomly decide to look over out of the window or something. What do I look directly at? A cat... I never saw cats (especially stray) as much as I have been ever since I have seen this "spirit cat", for a lack of better term. I even saw it in my dreams a few times. Is this a spirit guide? I am not sure. I feel crazy you guys lol. I have all of this happen, and then when I talk about it I feel dumb for having nothing but my word to back it up. I feel like people around me just think I am crazy, but I know I really am experiencing things because I wouldn't have any sort of reaction to them if they weren't real experiences. So if this was a too long, didn't read kind of story, what I would like to know is:

1. How can I see and communicate with spirits?

2. Is this cat I mentioned a spirit guide, or something else following me?

3. How can I protect myself daily from other energies?

4. How can I get a better handle on my ability?

Thank you to everyone who took the time to read my novel, and for those who comment!

I too have a cat experiences. The same grey tabby cat with white markings, different places, different cats but always the same. I know these cats are one of my animal totems. I just ordered a book called animal speak hope it gives me more insight to my little followers.

hi, sorry for the delay on the anwser virgil117, school has taken over life and everything's messy...
If you were available to talk about it i'd love to... I'm to afraid to talk to my family about it and most of the times I try to ignore the little presence always following me around but I think that now i'm ready to understand what happens to me and what I feel and sometimes see.

It's funny you mention seeing a shadow at night. I just woke up this morning and saw a boy in a red shirt standing by my bed.

Since young age i've been scared of the dark and no one knew why except me. I saw a shadow looking at me each night and it terryfied me... It eventually went away (although I still see it when i'm scared or in some place that scares me) but the feeling of being watched never did.
This past few weeks have been very confusing so I decided to go find some answers.
I have been having weird dreams that come true. I don't even know if you can call it dreams because it's just kind of an image I get in the middle of my dreams. I've dreamt of a boy using a golden shirt and he had his back turned to me and the next day there it was the golden shirt i'd never seen.
i've noticed also that when I look into people's eyes it's like I can feel them and my body automatically takes control and tries to help even if I don't know what i'm feeling from them. I've noticed too that when i'm around teenagers I get very insecure and confused about everything and when i'm with adults that feeling goes away and I suddenly feel very good about myself and life...
I just want answers, something that makes since because seing shadows and feeling whatched is making doubt my sanity...

When I woke up today, I read your comment, and it made me feel really good about where I stand! I feel ready for the day, lol. A kitten perched on my head, now that's an interesting thought. If the cat is my spirit animal, when I see them so frequently, should I take that as a sign that something is to come, good or bad, or should I take it as a sign that it's there and watching over me. Every time I see one, I am not sure if there is a message for me. It can get kind of frustrating due to the frequency of seeing them. Sometimes I see multiple in one day. What is more ironic is that the actual cat that is a spirit that shows itself to me is very similar looking to my grandma's cat. Her cat went missing for 6 weeks, and recently showed back up at her house, dying and weak. She took it to vets and hospitals, but it died three days ago. I had seen the spirit while her cat was missing. I wonder if that was also a sign that her cat was going to pass on. I also was not told her cat was gone, or even sick until yesterday when I visited her and found out her cat died. Poor Minnie. <3 Anyways, I really appreciate your input and Joyce's! I think you guys definitely helped me further along my journey:]

your very welcome.:D Well the purple light works too, whatever you can invision to block off bad energies. I am thinking maybe the cat spirit you saw is using all these cats that you see as a sign to get your attention, I mean, whenever I was getting messages from my guides last year. I was feeling a bit sad and wanted to see them. So the messages I got from them were everywhere I looked I would see messages of love, and pictures of hugs, and even a few movies I watched had messages from them. I'm actually really close to a spirit right now, her names Joyce, shes what's called a 'tulpa'. Shes kind of a spirit created through meditation and so on. She actually wants to say a few words to you

Her words are in these brackets. [ ]

[hello there! Its nice to meet you, and I'm glad I'm able to come on here and type out what I have to say. I'm joyce, Vergil's Tulpa. ^^ I love helping out people, and I especially love meeting new people! You know, whenever I looked at your words, I saw a kitty perched on your head.]

vergil, thank you for taking the time to read and respond:]. I try communicating with spirits or guides, but it seems like I come up empty handed every time. I just want to meet my guides so I can feel a closer relationship to them. I also want to help lost spirits because they deserve happiness, but they don't seem to look to me for help! I have never owned a cat, although I want one so terribly. I just find it interesting. I thought I saw a cat run beneath my car yesterday WHILE I was driving. I stopped and looked back through my mirror and nothing was there. I kept driving. I got a few houses away where that happened and I randomly looked out of my window to the left of me and well... I looked straight at a cat. They are everywhere since I have seen the spirit cat. I wish it would stick around like a real cat:3. I have tried the white light method during meditations, I can only get it to work now and again, but barely. For some reason I try to envision white light around me and I end up envisioning purple instead. I do have a necklace that holds a stone I got at this neat store. It's called Nebula stone. I can tell the difference as to when I take it off. It definitely helps me keep relaxed because I wear it all day, except in the shower lol. I wish I had ways where I could test my ability daily. I have tried many games online, but somehow they just don't seem like they're accurate for my abilities. I don't know, ramble ramble ramble. I am just going to try to let my gifts flow more naturally to me. Again, thank you for your time:D

Hey there, I'm 17 years old and I also have similar gifts. I can sense spirits pretty easily, there presence, and only sometimes can I communicate. I can feel spirit guides and to answer your questions

1. How to communcaite with them? Well first try talking out and seeing if you can get a response. How I communicate with my Tulpa is I talk to her in my mind, and don't expect an answer back. I just let whatever come, come. And its easily distinguishable from my other thoughts.

2. Did you have a cat when you were little that passed away? Or before that? If not, then this cat is probably a guide, or a totem. Either way, you have a friend that follows and protects you.:D

3. Well for protecting yourself from energies, the 'white light' technique doesn't work on everyone. What I do to protect myself is I carry a hematite stone with me all the time, and when I get overwhelmed, I hold it. Just carry any crystal with you and hold on to it. It works suprisingly well.

4. Well for getting a better handle at it, I suggest finding some time during the day to set aside for practicing, try and see if you can use your abilitiy naturally, and not trying too hard. I have seen a lot of exercises online you can do that help out with this.:D

Hope I helped ^^

Hrk; it is really strange! When I react in a bizarre manner, I end up feeling guilty because I see how my reaction affected the person. I try not to be impulsive but sometimes my conscious thought process is way ahead of my subconscious. I'm hoping we can figure it out so I can stop feeling guilty for something that I didn't really have control of xD

To answer your question, yes, I do act in certain ways that later having me questioning my behavior. Its strange, isn't it? It could have something to do with the fact that since we are able to sense and feel things "normal" people couldn't, we are suffering sensory overload. I don't know really, its just a wild guess. Hopefully we can gain insight!

Amethyst; thank you for taking the time to check this out:). I think a cat might be my spirit animal. I also am followed by a lot of creepy spiders. I hope those aren't any sort of guide to me because they are scary Dx whenever I have a dream about spiders, I see creepy ones all up in my face the next day. I had seen some white spiders for a few days after dreaming about one. I can't find much on the internet about white spiders... Anywho, I do meditate before I fall asleep and I try relaxin my mind any chance I can get. I wish I had a mentor for this kind of stuff. I hope we achieve developing our abilities further!

Hrk; I also want to thank you for taking the time to check this out as well:). I am glad I am not the only one dealing with this. My friends don't experience this stuff, so I feel alone! Do you ever react in certain ways to people and then not understand why you reacted in such a manner? I notice I yell at my mom for nothing, and I am not even mad at her. I'm definitely not a mean person either! Meep. I hope you can develop your abilities too. I'm determined!

I think that when an animal shows itself to you over and over again that is your spirit animal or totem. I took the liberty of researching the meaining of having a Cat as your spirit animal:
People with Cat as their totem are always extremely psychic and creative people. Often they are independent, unpredictable and more often than not highly astute in all situations. There is always a sense of mystery that surrounds them. They are also highly selective in choosing their friends and will rarely cave to peer pressure. They choose their own way in life but have to be careful not to become too reclusive.

I would suggest meditaion as a way to get a handle on your abilities, I have started recently and it is amazing the difference that I feel!

What I do to protect myself from negative energies is to visualize a white beam of divine light forming a sphere around you, there's a ton of info on the net about it. "White light Visualization".

I am on my own journey to be able to see/communicate with spirits. I used to see spirits a lot when I was younger! After going through a time of great loss I lost the ability and am trying to regain it. I wish you well with your journey and hope I helped in some small way!:)

I can relate to almost everything you mentioned: the temporary illness when being with sick people, the predictory dreams, and the spirit-seeing. Although I am unable to answer the majority of your questions, I can tell you that I too, have been wondering how to control my abilities for some time now and am still unaware as to how I can do just that!
