Real Psychic Experiences



I occasionally experience very short (1 or 2 second) visions and I wondered if anyone knows the best way to sustain them. I have tried things like meditation and have experienced many interesting things but by far the strongest psychic phenomena I have experienced are the visions.

The majority of visions I have had all started the same way, I have been lying on my bed watching TV and feeling quite sleepy, as I slip into the theta state I very suddenly go into a full on dream like situation (as I understand it it is not possible to go straight into a dream and must be in a deep sleep). Every thing in the vision is quite clear and even though they are less than a couple of seconds long I usually can describe them quite clearly and a lot of the time can associate an emotion with them. The trouble with these is the quickness and when I come round it is not like waking from a dream but more like being yanked out and is quite disorientating as even though I am not quite asleep I seem to lose all contact with the outside world and I also usually get a strong gut wrenching feeling like being on a roller coaster.

Most of the time I have been able to fully identify the incident when it happens although some have been vague like driving on a motorway which I may not have recognized when it happened. A good example of one was that I was watching tv and suddenly I was in my car approaching a round about that I was very familiar with, going round the round about a silver car in the next lane suddenly swerved into my lane and I came out of the vision with a start. This was in the space of a few seconds yet I knew the round about and I knew the colour of the car and I quite clearly described it to people including the person who was in the car next to me when it happened and in fact I was describing it whilst approaching the round about right before it happened and even the person who does not believe in psychic phenomena admitted that he could not deny something weird had occurred.

If anyone knows how I can maintain these visions to be more than flashes I would very much appreciate the advice.

I also believe that most people experience this but not strongly enough to bring them round and they continue into full on sleep with only a very faint sub conscious memory of it and when they experience the vision for real they do not know why it is familiar, hence de ja vu.

These 1-2 second visions you describe happen to me in the same way. They come with some flash of knowledge and that is it. One way it was explained to me is that although you may experience the vision here on the earth plane and it lasts a only second or so, reality is such that space and time do not exist. In other words, eternity is the other side of the coin. If you put your visions into the context of the eternal, it may help make better sense of them. Also, if your visions are like mine, all information needed is contained in that picture and thought. I haven't practiced at this so my visions are spontaneous but my friend explained it to me as a muscle you work out. Like any other discipline, it requires work. Hope this helps!

This was a interesting story and I was having visions a lot when I was young and now I am having more when I am older.

Be patient and learn to grow with them. Learning isn't always quick and easy though we like it that way. Be prepared to live life here, which is why you are here. The other stuff is learning past that part.

Hi VendettaBabes,

Thank you very much for replying to my post.

I very much would like to enhance my abilities and so have been doing meditation for nearly a year and more recently studying chakras and trying to open them (I believe I opened the crown chakra once without knowing what it was). I have also read several books on developing psychic abilities but they always seem to cover the bits that I know about and it seems as though there is something missing that I need to learn.

I have experienced quite a few psychic experiences, sometimes during meditation but usually the stronger ones are involuntary and I find it frustrating not being able to control them.

One of the other things I experience regularly is sometimes knowledge just pops into my head as if someone has just told me some information but then erased my memory of them telling me yet the information remains. For example I had been off work for a week and was getting ready to go back that morning, a friend of mine had had long hair ever since I had known him yet whilst making my breakfast I blurted out loud that he had had a hair cut like some sort of tourettes syndrome but when I got to work he had had all his long hair cut off.

The main thing I am after is some techniques or some way of getting the same intensity of experience but voluntarily. When I have a vision they are so quick that I just want to stay in it longer to get greater detail.

I would very much appreciate any advice on developing psychic abilities.

My name is Phil by the way and I live just outside of London.

hey thunderchild, you might be something special. Jazmin says that you are weak at the thought that you get very few visions, but that you are strong because your visions are kind of intense. [jazmin is a very strong psychic, and one of the three of us who are writing this message] We'd love to help you more, but can you be a little more descriptive with your questions? All we get from them right now is that you want to increase your abilities. Is that what you want to do? It was really nice meeting you, and if you type back, I can tell you my psychic best friend's advice and maybe even her e-mail adress. By the way, my name is valerie, and I live in berkeley springs, west virginia, USA, and I am empathic. The other vendettaBabe is natti, and she is the only normal person who knows about what jazmin and I can do. Type back ASAP!
