A bit of background for everyone: I have no prior diagnoses in regards to psychological disorders or diseases. There are no other cases of the aforementioned in my family either, however; my mother has had some notable situations occur that have all happened after I was born.
Cutting right to the chase, my aunt and mom were were cleaning out my aunts house after her mother had died. My aunt had mentioned that a specific mirror was nice, and asked my mom if she would like to take it. My mom responded with "I don't like mirrors. I see things in them." I was told that when she said this, it was said in a very emotionally detached manner. After my mother had said this, it was like someone snapped their fingers and she went back to having a normal conversation and to this day she denies the occurrence of the conversation.
Furthermore, when I was very little, we had moved to Virginia. We lived on a small farmhouse on a plot of land. At night my mom would sometimes mention that she saw people looking in the house through the windows. After this happened one night my dad contacted the local police department to have an officer sent out to. After a short investigation, the officer noted that there were no footprints in the soil, and that the specific window my mother mentioned seeing someone in was blocked by a large thorn bush.
After being told these stories, I started thinking. Glass at night acts as a mirror. So maybe she does/did see things in mirrors? I mention these situations because they may have some relevance to my own experiences that I am unaware of.
For the past couple years I've had some fairly odd experiences. From seeing things, to encountering situations that for a lack of better terms, I told myself we're going to happen.
First off, I started renting a room from a young, divorced working professional about six months ago. Since being in the newly built house, I've seen some unusual things. One day I was sitting down at the counter doing my homework. I had my hat on, earphones in, and I was typing on my laptop. Between the bill of my hat, and the top of my computer screen, I could see into the kitchen. Well, someone walked in front of me and I didn't think much of it. I thought my roommate was home. I took out one headphone, and said "what's up!" Not looking away from my computer screen. There was no response. I looked up and no one was there, and even more scary, no one was home. My roommate was still at work. Other things have happened with lights turning on by them selves and doors opening randomly. But more notably, there was a night where my dog and I were laying in bed watching some Netflix. All the lights were off besides what was emitted by my laptop, and everyone was asleep. My dog suddenly sat up and looked at the door. She began to growl, watch (something), and once she slowly watched from one end of the room to the other she stopped and laid down.
The last thing I wanted to note was this strange "ability" that started happening about six months ago.
Sometimes, when I am in the middle of an action (putting a dish away, closing or opening a door, etc) a thought will pop into my head in regards to my current action. Prime example, I have a brand new car. The other day I sat down to drive to school. While I was in the middle of turning the key to start it, I though, "It won't turn over." Well guess what? My car wouldn't start. It still isn't running and no one can figure out what the problem is to this day.
I wasn't really worried about this when it was small things. I took a pen out of my backpack and as I'm ALMOST about to put pen to paper, the though "it won't write" popped into my head. All of my pens were in that awkward I'm-just-gunna-halfass-write stage when you have to scribble millions of circles to get any ink to come out. I got on the shower the other day and as I turned the knob the thought "it will be cold" popped into my head. No surprises here guys, there was no hot water. The water heater pilot light had gone out.
Well it's starting to move onto bigger things now. More REAL situations. The other day I walked into one a breakfast joint in town, and as I opened the door, the thought "dad" popped into my head. I looked to my left and my dad was sitting there with my brother waiting for their food.
Are there abilities where people can predict the outcome of a situation, or manipulate the outcome of a situation?
I don't know if ANY of this is connected. But if it is and anyone has advice I would love to hear it. It is just a series of unfortunate events made more perplexing by the statistical improbability of my thoughts occurring as I think them? Or am I just crazy to believe that I may be influencing things I shouldn't be able to.
Thanks for reading everyone, I really do look forward to some responses. It may put my nerves at ease.
