Do I Have Any Psychic Gifts?


Ever since I've been around the age of 8, I've known that there's something different about me.

My question is: how can I control the type of intuition I think I have? Do my experiences qualify as clairvoyance or another ability? How can I further control these?

I've always had random dreams that later come true-I know these to be premonitions. These dreams don't tend to be extremely detailed, just small clues to a future moment. Future telling and knowledge, if that makes any sense, seems to be the root of my abilities. At the age of 9 or 10, I received my first set of tarot cards-i know what you're thinking, I am and have always been extremely mature for my age. I've had numerous experiences with my cards, all good and a few shockingly accurate. In order to have a concise summary of everything that has happened with myself, Id prefer not to go into detail. Once, however, I discovered through reading a girl I met at sleepovers cards that her mother's partner passed away. I was able to give an accurate description of the deceased even having just met the girl whose cards I read. This is just one of my experiences. As I was saying previously, my ability is based off "future-telling" in lack of a better term. This mean I'll get spontaneous deja vu moments and sometimes predict what people will say before they speak. I've actually stopped dead in my tracks before and said "Becca (for example) is home" sure enough, they just pulled in the driveway.

Insight is another ability. After that strange occurrence at the sleepover, my friend demanded she have her own deck of tarot cards and that I'd teach her. (Let's just say I wasn't very successful). She was interested in whatever gift I have, if I even do, and wanted to experiment. She collected a few items from around her house, I had only been there a few times and knew the girl who roughly three months at the time. So, she showed me a stuffed giraffe animal. I was expected to make accurate comments about it (what she named it, who gave it to her, how old, etc). This I never expected to happen: I told her it's name was Giraffe (something to that effect, creative I know) then I explained it was her aunt who gave it to her when she was 5 from a public aquarium, zoo, museum. Every single detail was correct. So as you can see, I get moments of insight where I'll have prior knowledge or understanding of things I shouldn't or don't know of.

Now, I have experienced quite of a bit of paranormal activity and it seems as if the occasional events at my household circle around me. Only 1-2 things have actually happened when I haven't been home or in the room.

However, I am far from being a medium. It's so interesting to read of these stories where people can communicate with the dead or even see them. I have only seen a spirit twice, one being in an orb form another in a fast, cloudy flash of a full-bodied figure. Both times involve the apparition being white of color, never black.

Its important to include that I can also see auras. At first (still questioning it though) I thought this was a trick of my eyes. But either way, I am able to see a milky outline approximately 1/2 inch thick of objects - they have grown larger and have had more color to them before which I feel is a full aura manifestation. I believe what I am witnessing is an eye trick or a beginning of an aura. When having a deep concentration or strong emotion, the aura keeps larger and more colorful I feel.

I know this is long and fairly jumpy, but I feel it's important to include a summary of every strange event that happens to me. This includes rare psychical drain. I experience a burst of emotion or light headed feeling every time I'm in a busy, crowded place, overwhelming me. In the past I have actually blacked out, here's two experiences of this just to clarify. Once, a few years ago, my school took a field trip to a museum. We were checking out Native American artifacts and participating in chants of some sort. While most of the kids weren't paying attention, talking, I was compelled to the objects in the display cases. I felt myself grow sick with different feelings and pains, and a teacher (lets call her Ms.C) escorted me outside the exhibit. Things now begin to get strange-the second I left that section of the museum I felt perfectly fine. That left me wondering: what was that about? The on duty nurse assumed I was low on blood sugar-something like that-but I and Ms. C knew there was something not quite right. This experience has happened to me another time (it's happened about 3-4 times in all) when I was by an abandoned building and field at a small shop. I was overwhelmed with emotion and feeling, the abandoned area is the only thing I can think of, I did wait outside the shop after all. The ride back home was a blur, I was asleep or knocked out but my consciousness was still there. This has occurred twice, happening both times I've been around there. Here's the recurring twist again: The second I set foot in my house I was perfectly fine, like replenished. I do not know if these experiences are of the paranormal or related to a psychic phenomenon, but I do know they were not explainable and not of a medical issue.

If my story was long and confusing, I apologize- I just wanted to summarize the many types of unexplained things I've witnessed throughout my years and hopefully find out more about it. Is there is any confusion on my wording or explaining feel free to let me know. Is this signs of psychic ability or purely coincidental? I plan on further summarizing a few of these events in further detail in another entry. Your opinion is appreciated, thank you!

[at] bsuttles3922, thank you for your response - it was, to be honest, the most simple way of putting together what I can't. The only question I now have left is why my gifts are so random and uncontrolled...

You have premonitions, precognition, tarot reading, clairvoyance and empathy. As for the dizzy and draining feelings there are a couple possible reasons:
1) a psychic vampire was a round
2) you were overwhelmed by someone's emotions, abilities or past
3) you have the ability of psychometry and it drained you to use
Or 4) or your other gifts naturally drained you, all gifts take energy to use

In general people get tired.
For people who are aware of their Chi/Prana/aka psychic energy. It is an awareness of being unbalanced or referred to as ungrounded.
Unbalance and Ungrounding means you do not feel like your self. Some symptoms-drained and tired.
Dizziness feel spaced out etc.

Some people are Yang:give and give.
Empathy and Sensatives.

Some people are Yin:receive.
Humans who receive. Require and have needs.

People have both Yang and Yin. But normally tend to be one predominantly.
By the principles of Grounding we check ourself.
Asking what is this? Feel drained.
Google: Grounding Techiniques.
Google:shielding. This protects you mostly from humans and can work with other areas.

If you wanted to look into a home and wanted to put your psychic senser out and started feeling ill as you described. That means your psychic sensers have too much to process. Your body let's your mind know this by feelings and sensations. The is why you physically leave the are. Let you body calm down and clear your head with breathing. When feeling normal return.

If you meditate daily.
Also use mantras or exercises as walking meditation or others. It trains your mind to look at situations as an observer. Instead of reacting.
An observer looks from afar and is not emotionally involved. Google mindful meditations. Or Yoga nostril breathing use a few times a day. This balances the right and left side of the brain.

Now [at] PathR, do you believe the draining of energy due to the large crowds - psychic related or not...? The only other question I have is what exactly you meant towards the bottom paragraph? I'm not at all advanced or even experienced in the psychic area - I literally have no idea:)

Thank you for your advice [at] Cayce17 - I appreciate it! I definitely believe I'm clairvoyant, but wondering about the empathy part. I feel very effected by certain things in the way an empath does (if that made any sense) but not always - I can't really feel someone's emotions and thoughts at any given moment, it seems only to happen when there's a big thing going on around me.

When handling old artifacts these can have a guardian around them. And you felt over whelmed passing out.
But it sounds as if you are affected by large crowds.
Large crowds can be like entering into a room and the crowd acts like a vacuum. Pulling all your energy out of you.
In the past I have wanted to pass out as well as vomit.

My husband feels weak/nauses head spinning looks pale and ready to pass out in Psychic auditorium.

As a psychic before starting to connect-reading psychologically. You might use grounding and a color shield. Before starting. Then ground after you check out or read. If at any time you feel a little weak or too emotional. Pull back. Re group then go back.
If that does not work. Do not apply yourself so intently rather read as an observer.

I think you're clairvoyant and I don't think you can control your abilities. Clair in french means clear and voyance means vision. If you've ever touched an object or a person and you saw something. Maybe a glimpse of something, but something you could be clairvoyant. Even if you dream and it comes true you could be clairvoyant. If you can see auras you're an empath. Empaths can see auras, feel emotions and all of that. If that's true then you could be both. And if you're aware, but sleeping that's known as lucid dreaming. It takes practice, but people who are psychic once mastered can control their ability better, at least in my opinion. I have yet to master it, though. And a lot of people with abilities feel drained physically from over usage. I feel physically drained every day, because I still can't control my abilities and I use them at night without even realizing it. It's like you're sleeping, but you're awake and you get drained from lack of sleep. If you want to know more, here's my e-mail:
