Brain Injuries and Psychic Abilities


I'm not sure what else to say other than I feel different than a lot of other people. I guess I AM just a tad bit odd. I have a bit of an unusual gift, well gifts, rather. I have multiple peculiarities, I'm not overly sure what to make of. I have been told I am an 'indigo adult'. So that may explain a bit. I also had some savant traits as a child, and still do.

As a younger child, I was very unusual in the way I thought, I was extremely smart, did everything very early, and learned much faster than other children my age. I was able too feel other peoples emotions and had a mild gift of sight. I was and am very attuned to nature. Most common sight was in my dreams, as I could tell when something bad was going to occur before it did.

Due to my differences, I ended up in an abuse situation, for many years, where my normal childhood wasn't 'normal' anymore. I experienced several head injuries, one of which was very severe. My gifts became extremely prominent as I grew older. My abilities are out there. I can see things with touch, I am semi-clairvoyant, able to feel magnetic fields and have 2 senses which have heightened... Smell and hearing. The sensory heightening may be that I don't see very well. I also perceive auras by feel.

My partner says it's due to the brain injuries that my gifts are so heightened... That my brain may have rerouted itself, when it got hurt, so that its paths of nerves were through a different part of the brain, than everyone else. I'll bet she's right, but I'm not sure. I have been to a neurologist, for my brain injuries, my eeg's came back 'unusual'. I've been asked repetitivly if I have seizures, I do not. They can't explain it.

I guess I should look at it as a blessing, and I do. It's also a curse.

My worst curse though, is my dreams. I have had these dreams since a child, never variant. They appear apocalyptic and I wake with a heck of a headache. I also pre-see the deaths of those I love. It has never failed. I have been frighteningly accurate with my sight. I've lost friends after readings, because I knew to much.

I also have advanced myself, with meditations, I have involuntary function control, like heart rate, blood pressure and body temp. I taught myself that, with biofeedback, which I have been doing for many years now. I also control my pain that way. I can astral travel also.

I guess why I'm sharing this, is so most of you, who feel different, because of your 'gifts', its not shameful, and to let you know your not alone.

Hope you enjoyed the read, Sincerely, Enigma.

People who have strokes (and thus can suffer brain damage) end up with strange abilities, possibly due to increased activity in other parts of the brain that the brain it's self must rely on to make up for the loss of function or damage to the function of other areas.

A woman I knew had an eighty year old neighbor who had a stroke. He was from then onward able to "go into" what ever he watched on t.v. Example, this old man liked baseball, so when he would watch a baseball game he would tell his nurse later that he was at that game, sitting in the stands and could feel the cold metal of the bench, and taste popcorn he was eating.

The same phenomena has happened with other people who suffer brain injury. A skier who suffered serious brain truama (I believe he had to relearn how to walk) could from then on wards tell you exactly what happened on a specific date in all of recorded history (maybe even things we don't know happened?). He could tell you what day of the week an event happened on, and tell you in the blink of an eye what day the next leap year would be. (Versions of this particular "date" phenomena has been recorded several times in victims of brain injury).

When asked how he knew these things by a doctor, he would always say "I don't know"

Maybe something like this happened to your brain due to the tumor?

I went to a Dr. In early 1992 and told her, I was concerned I may have a brain tumor. I was 31 years of age, a competitive runner and surfer, and she told me I was too healthy and young to have a brain tumor. I sought out other medical attention from another Dr., a MRI was done, and I was admitted "Emergency Stat" to the Naval Hospital Balboa in San Diego, CA., as the Schwanoma brain tumor was going to sever my brain stem. The tumor started at the front of my left frontal lobe and stretched all the way to the base of my occipital lobe. I underwent 2 emergency brain surgeries 10 days apart to have it removed.
I met my Neurosurgeon after being admitted to the hospital. I noticed something on his wall encased in a glass frame box that looked very familiar to me. It was an ancient trephining tool, which looked like a hand drill. The trephining tool was used long ago to perform brain surgery. I had kept a journal during this time of my life, and in the hospital, I was reviewing my journal entries, and I realized why the trephining tool/hand drill encased in glass in my surgeon's office looked so familiar to me. I had been having pain in the back of my neck for some time, and I had drawn a profile view of the left side of my face/head in my journal with an identically shaped match of the trephining tool/hand drill hanging in my surgeon's office weeks before being admitted to the hospital. How could I have known this or somehow been matched up with a Neurosurgeon who had that tool hanging in his office? What are the odds? The trephining tool I had drawn was drawn going into the back of my skull in my journal, exactly where the tumor was going to sever my brain stem.
Ever since my surgeries, I have experienced events I do not understand on a regular basis, such as:

*Thinking of someone on the way to a shopping center and meeting them inside the store by chance.
*Thinking of someone, and the phone rings, and they are on the phone calling me.
*I stopped on the top of the stairs in my garage one day for no reason, other to think, what would happen if my wife at that time had a car accident. Two weeks later she had a head on collision and was life flighted to a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
*Meeting with a young man in the hospital who had been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor and was awaiting surgery. I was introduced to him by a mutual friend. I created a Shaman healing/walking stick covered in Brazilian rabbit fur, beads, leather, feathers and deer antlers, prior to ever meeting him in the hospital. I took that to him as a gift not really knowing why. A few days later he was released from the hospital prior to his surgery, because X-rays showed there were no signs of his cancerous tumor. All I had done was meet and talk with him, and present him with the staff I created.
*I worked with a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor in the Atlanta, Georgia area who had been on life support after a serious car crash. Doctors had told his parents he needed to be removed from Life Support, and they declined. I met this person when he could hardly walk on his own, and I had to guide him around holding onto his harness/belt, so he would not fall. He was uncoordinated and walked with a limp, could hardly speak and was cognitively confused most of the time. I worked with him, as his Traumatic Brain Injury Life Coach for a long year. He had been told he would never drive again. He now drives and is married. His physical therapist in Traumatic Brain Injury Rehab. Informed me he began making progress when I started working closely with him.
There have been too many strange psychic and unexplained occurrences in my life prior to and since my surgeries to have been coincidental. I have only noted a few of the countless events that have happened.
I am open to any comments or correspondence with others who have shared in this kind of phenomenon.

I just wanted to tell you that I have a similar story. I was in a terrible car accident that landed me in a coma. I lost my ability to taste and smell for the rest of my life but I strongly believe that where I lack those senses, I've gained in other areas of my brain that perhaps I hadn't used before. It's quite interesting... As if I feel smarter than I ever was.

Flutter - I have a sense of it. I did look up I ching with a site for a free reading so clicked it under anonymous and got indigo. So did it again and got different stuff but still that. It's flattering probably, but I don't need compliments. Well we all do?

[at] GlendaSC when you get the chance go and look up "Indigo Children". I think you will find it to be, good reading and knowing about them.

Thanks for sharing your story. I feel other's emotions too, and sometimes they come off really strong, and it's just overwhelming.

Dear Enigma, your story has helped me a little so I thank you a lot for that. I have these "gifts" that I can't explain, and I sometimes get scared of them aswell, but your story, along with other stories on here has helped me to realise I am not alone. Please be sure to comment on any stories that I post if you can and thanks again. 😳

Dear Enigma - Thank-you for sharing your experiences. I wish your childhood had been more like mine, normal (boring a little) and protective. I keep hearing indigo child and plan to look it up. Even sheltered, my young years might have been a little unusual. It was a real awakening when I finally went out on my own at 19 and found that I was different in some real way. It took me awhile to accept that it was scary to people. Still have probs with that. Your injuries might have affected this, but it might have just been the way you were made to begin with. Perhaps being sensitive as a small person made your caregivers a little afraid. Just a thought. But, I hope you have found peace and happiness. Mostly I think that means just appreciating the small things. I find humor a great thing too. I'm careful with my humor, it's dry, but sometimes the world seems a little funny (silly) to me.
