Real Psychic Experiences

Am I Having Visions?


I'm sorry if this is weird, but I'm on a psychic experiences website so it's probably ok. For the past year I've been having what I call "episodes". I thought they were a mental illness symptom because I have depression and anxiety, but my therapist isn't sure what they are. I'm hit with an odd feeling, and then for a few seconds I see something. Once I was at a shop (I think a pet shop) and I worked there (not like I myself, but I was looking through the eyes of a worker) and my coworker, a girl, was angry at me. Another time I was in a group and embarrassed and one of the boys in my group was making fun of me (for some reason it felt like a real life D&D campaign, like we're going on a mission and the teasing is really not that mean). Lately it's been the same tiny snippet of him saying something, too quick to know what.

There's a lot more but I've forgotten them and some are too fast to catch. It's like looking through someone else's eyes for just one moment. I never remember faces, but I remember backgrounds, like the shop has lavender things and the sky is blue when the boy is talking. It only lasts a few seconds, less than a second sometimes, then it's over and I feel nauseous, and everything feels unreal for a few minutes, and I can have a headache for hours after. My friend said they might be visions, but if so they aren't prophetic. Nothing like them has happened. Am I crazy? Can anyone tell me what I'm seeing? I've read about similar stuff on here, I just want an answer.

i can pretty much understand the problem of clairvoyant dreaming I have a lot of ill give you one instance I remember having a dream of a neighbour hanging or sitting on the window ledge this was on a level were if he fell he would have surly broken something well the one year we had new neighbours who were troublesome late night parties etc me and the wife was walking back from the town after a small shopping trip when I saw the same neighbour hanging out of the window I was struck with terror I held back a bit the wife said what's the matter luve I said you would not beleave it if I told you so I kept it to my self and yes you can have shared consciouness there is also ther empath side which I don't miss cause I live on my own as human beings we are more then what you realise yes your scared but once you start to understand what you really are and let you ego rule less your spiritual side becomes more known and your less afraid

Fear the main trigger this used to happen to me a lot in my younger day fear of the dark what possible ever could be in the dark something scary goes through the mind your senses get heightened in these states then an adjustment of your perception takes place meditation is really good for altering ones perception but we must live in this world and keep that so we must ground which is really important I noticed a few teachers that learn people to meditate do not ground there students and a few feel out of sorts until they adjust back to norm state like feeling unsteady on your feet or feeling like your in a dream state

I would like to add to my story in response to comments! They often happen when I'm not totally focused, but occasionally when I'm a bit upset. I feel like when I'm not focused on something (either on nothing or a lot of things at once) they happen more. They happen a lot more when I'm under long term stress. I almost always get a headache after, not that intense but they last a very long time. I am always awake and often in the middle of something, which is frustrating. I was 15 when I started having them and I'm almost 17 now.

This is similar to my own experiences. Mine happen when I am asleep. It's through the eyes of other people but a lot of mine are people in trouble. My most recent was that of a young girl who was in college. I was seeing through her spirit. She was showing me how she was murdered and by who. She wanted her body found and she showed me a quick view of where she was left.
I myself am trying to understand what this is. I may not have advice to offer but I can at least let you know that you are not alone.

MaggieQuartz, I know abilities and visions may seem burdensome, but they only are that way because you have yet to understand them. What your seeing may seem insignificant but usually when I see visions, even the smallest details clue me into something bigger and where I'm supposed to be at that point in my life. I would love to help you train your abilities and help you understand them better. E-mail me if you want or have any sort of questions for me.

I'm sorry if you don't like your ability and think it is a problem, but I myself have many abilities and keep getting more and all I can say is that this is one ability I would be glad to have. I do know what it feels like to have an ability you don't like because I am starting to seemingly jump to different dimensions and that really worries me because the possibility of getting stuck in a different dimension.

Hi, I don't think you are crazy. I also would like to know the circumstance when this happens. Are you awake or sleeping when this happens? Is it during times of stress or anxiety? Do you take on the feelings of the people from their perspective when it happens? Does it happen as a sudden jump like your falling and trying to catch yourself or like a slow zoning out trance state? You could be having an issue with your brain. You stated you feel nauseous after it happens. Do you ever get headaches from or after it? My brother had a friend that was bipolar and suffered from migraines and seizures. He would have weird images and lights flash in his head and brief memories he had forgotten. He would get confused and inject other peoples experiences into his memory and dream about them. His brain did not know how to process some of the information it was getting. Some times he would just lock up and did not know where he was or what he was doing. This started at the age of 9 years old. My brother is younger and I witnessed his friend go through this for many years until they got his medication dialed in and helped him understand it. I am not saying that this is your issue, but only to keep an open mind and don't rule anything out.
It is also quite possible that you are experiencing a form of psychic gift or curse depending on how you feel about it. With time it may turn out to be a wonderful blessing. I myself sometimes travel or remote view depending on peoples terminology and understanding. When I experience it, sometimes I intend to or will it to happen and sometimes it just happens. Sometimes when I am just about to sleep I get flooded with images and small video clips that come out of nowhere and surprise me. I have a notebook by my bed and I will jot down notes before I lay back down and finally go to sleep. Sometimes I can go into a trance state in the middle of the day and will or intend a search for information. Sometimes I have dreams and visions while sleeping that play out in the future. So in summary, don't worry to much. It could be something totally different than you expect. It could be an exciting roller-coaster ride you will get to experience. It could be a new psychic ability you are just learning about or a vivid artistic talent you will get to nurture. Share your info and experiences with the people on this site and they may be able to help. I would not rule out physical issues though either. Just pay attention to what is going on with you and your life and take nothing for granted. 😊

Lets start by saying your not crazy. These psychic experiences can start at a very young age, you need to seek other people like your self to give you guidance. You need to treat your self as more spiritual being. I am not going to talk about my self because I now were your coming from it can be very scary and nobody else understands except people like us its a gift fine tune it you never know when it will stop and start again, you need to think of your self as a special person and learn to switch the gift on and off when you call it a day. I wish you the very best of luck on your journey if you decide to carry on

Do you think that these "visions" occur at a particular time, like when you are having a panic attack? Just curious.

I would look into shared consciousness. It's hard to say exactly what could be happening, outside of your own active imagination. Many people believe that we are all part of one consciousness, but individualized into billions of different beings. So going along with that theory, perhaps you are tapping into someone else's individual consciousness, but in a way it is also yours. You just seem to have developed the (unwanted) ability to jump between different strands of consciousness.
