Family History Of Abilities


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.

ok, my email is my username [at]

I am still really new to all of this though, even though it has happened many times over the last 5 years or so. I wish I had written them down. I have had many different experiences though and lots of synchronicities.

Sounds like we should all chat, being that we all have some pretty clear similarities.

Your comment is spot on! I would love those links as well.

I randomly experience what you do, with the sudden thoughts before they happen. I think you are showing some claircognizant abilities, so that may be a good first step to study up on. Sometimes it happens for me just as you described, and sometimes I will think an entire phrase or idea immediately before someone else says it out loud. Since is comes as more of a thought (at least for me), I don't think it is clairaudience.

Try doing what has worked very well for me sometimes. Right when you wake up, don't move a muscle. Try to stay in that hypnagognic stage as long as possible. Then ask a question. Something that can be verified very easily that day. For example, ask what your roommate is going to wear that day. Or ask for a particular sign (something that you will see during the day that you don't normally come across). Then clear your mind, and let the first words that pop in your head be your answer. See how many times you can get it correct. Don't try to think the words either, just let them pop in you head and let it surprise you a little. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't work at first, the neat thing is, you can try again every single morning.

Although, lately for me, I seem to be waking up fully awake... So I haven't been able to practice it lately. But it is really fun, and I have at least one story or maybe it's in a comment that talks about this.

Most of the examples you've cited don't suggest you've changed things, or caused things to happen. It sounds more like you were made privy to certain knowledge, a short amount of time before it'd be naturally revealed to you.

You commented on my post so I know you've read some of my accounts regarding similar occurrences. What our experiences have in common is that our premonitions are pretty useless to us, at least so far. I mean, given a few seconds and we'd naturally come to learn those things, and our knowledge before-hand didn't really put us at any major advantage.

So, I suppose your goal might be to further develop this kind of intuition into something that could be advantageous to you. I suggest you do that by educating yourself in certain areas, psychology of the unconscious mind being a big one. I found that when I started to educate myself the intensity, and frequency of these events increased dramatically.

You mentioned the possibility of chatting. If you still want to chat let me know and I could recommend some reading to you. I could actually send you some links to some audio books and educational videos that I think would help you.

I will mention briefly that human consciousness has been proven to have an effect on reality. This is recognized by the entire scientific community, though no one can explain it. I'm going to post a link to a youtube video. In case it doesn't come through, you might google "dr quantum double slit experiment" and click "videos" at the top. You'll find a five minute video that explains the double-slit experiment. And I will tell you that what you'll see mentioned is 100% legitimate, and has been a known phenomenon in the scientific community for over 100 years.

It's kind of cool and exciting to recognize these things are happening. That said, and you need to be careful not to let it go to your head, because that will be counter-productive to further developing and understanding it. I think you should proceed scientifically, objectively, and skeptically, and avoid subscribing to the theories of other people, especially those that a lot of people subscribe to.

All the best! And let me know if you want to chat.

Hi Apiori,

To me, you sound like a medium and so does the other family member who sees stuff in the mirrors.

What I do when I am sleeping in a different place other than my home, is that I close all the mirrors and windows and as many reflective surfaces I can find. No, I don't cover them with a blanket but what I do is I wet my fingers with some tap water and air draw the symbol of the cross over the mirror 3 times and say this, "I now command this mirror to close permanently. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ."

You can draw any symbol you feel is protective and you can say in the name of any deity you feel helps, what matters is your intention to close the mirror or window. After that, you won't be seeing ghosts popping up in those specific mirrors and windows.

The helpful thoughts popping up in your mind might be your spirit guides and angels. If you want to hear them better, listen with your heart. Maybe try visualizing connecting lines of energy from your heart to your ears.

If you ever need to clear the energy of your home, white sage works, crystals help, and there is the Michael Invocation you can google search and follow the instructions there. It can help get rid of the ghosts that pop up.

Last comment is that of you ever notice a ghost, to cross them over a simple way is by saying this: "Archangel Michael, FIND the ghost that I saw and TAKE them into healing." You can edit the sentence to fit the situation, but keep the words FIND and TAKE.

Good idea. I'll make sure I document future events. Does anyone else have any possible insight?

I would suggest to keep a notebook and write down the date and time one of these events occur, the thought and the out-come of the event. After a period of time review your notes. The same goes for the other odd happenings you described. Very interesting!😐
