Real Psychic Experiences

People Who Aren't Really There

 

I'm new to the site, so go easy on me.

Apparently, psychic experiences run in my family (mother, grandmother, and great grandmother all had some sort of experience with the "unexplainable"). When I was a little girl, I used to "see" people who weren't there. I didn't see them exactly, but that's the closest I can come to explaining what was happening to me. Once I realized that no one else could see these folks, I stopped seeing them.

Recently (within the last month or two) I've started seeing them again. Some of these people (who aren't really there) seem to be associated with certain individuals. For instance, my husband has a very tall woman who follows him around. And any time my husband is gone from the house and we (myself and my children) are there alone, there is a dark haired man who looks in the small window on the front door, but only if my husband isn't home. And why he looks through THAT window when there are several windows that would be easier to see through, I don't know. It's strange.

I know these are not actual people because I don't see them the same way. It's almost as if I see them more in my head than with my eyes. I've never communicated with one, and they have never indicated an interest in communicating with me, so I see them, and that's it.

I guess I'm searching for an understanding of what's going on with me.

Mysti - I use to see it as fun myself, until the night I lost my best friend at a wreck (not one we were in, but stopped to help at). We were very close, but it was just too much for her. Until then, she thought it was funny (things I did so I cut loose a tiny bit) and one of the few people religious like me but not killer religious and we had fun. She saw things that I've never shown my hub because I don't want him freaked. Well, having her change kind of ruined the fun for me honestly and made me angry somewhat. Plus my daughter is pushy and aggressive and works hard, and she doesn't like it either. In a way, I know it's not fair, just knowing. She can't go there (much), I do, and her older brother some. I'm sorry for your pain, but it teaches. I don't understand that, but was told very clearly a few minutes before I found out my daughter was burned. That was one of those things that was clear. "Sometimes to learn, we have to have pain..." That's close but it was over a decade ago...

glenda,
It can be fun. Was especially fun in my teen years. My cousin and I would hang out a lot. At times she would go to say something, as I talked and said the same things she did at the same time. I would get the look.haha. Other times, would start singing the same exact song and exact same phrase exactly at the same time. It was fun for me. My guy over the years asked me if he could finish his sentence himself. I would get bored waiting to hear what I already knew. With age, I've learned to be patient. With pain, not as good as I used to be anyway. He still asks me where the thingy is or if I could get the thingy for him. I'm suppose to know what the thingy is. On better days I go for it. Painful days I ask.

Yes. I managed to ignore it. This took work though. You really have to ignore people around you reacting to things you say or do. And, if you grow up this way, it feels just a fun, silly things mostly and you wonder why people are behaving like they do... And you keep busy, then it's easy to ignore because you're tired.

Glenda, I've been reading some of your posts, and I wonder if you really managed to shut it out? It seems, from your comments, that folks around you realized something was going on with you, but you were ignoring it it.

I don't think this is something that we make happen. Asking is good. Being grateful is good. Being nice seems to help. Other than that, it's just there or not.

Better to me, until recently, has always been trying to shut it out and live my life. Now, I'm not sure. Have you ever felt close to something, but not quite there? Well, doing a job, having a spouse and kiddies, and being content is great. Other than that, it gets confusing.

Glenda, That's very insightful. Any tips on getting better? Or how I can make it be helpful (aside from actually listening)?

Davis - Yesterday there was a show, history channel I think, on rogue waves. Until the past couple of years (5-10), ships sank and lives were lost because scientists said they couldn't exist. Now they have video. Now scientists know more and realize that they are very possible and do exist. Before, captains who claimed them were considered incompetent or worse. I found that odd - sinse they were see-able. After all these centuries of them being reported, how could rogue waves be doubted? Why did it take so long for mankind to understand how they happened. It didn't seem that complicated. Well, our stuff might be similar.

Mystical2, GlendaSC, and Edmund,

Thanks! You've been a great help. I still wish I could control when I "know" or "see" stuff, but I suppose I need to take it easy, not stress about it, and not question myself when it happens. Easier said than done, though.

Davis - I think sensitive people always pick up emotions. It seems nosey to me so I try not to, but it's so obvious that it's a struggle all the time. Long, long ago, I tried to keep my distance and not see the personal stuff. It's not always easy.

Second, I think we might see these "others" in a way that makes us comfortable or that we expect. The bad ones prefer freaking us out probably, but the ones trying to ease our way want us to be comfortable. I've seen other people who made me feel relaxed - a blue jean shirt, a blond woman. I know that's partly how I need them to be projected to feel at ease. I'm not always comfortable around children, love them and them me, but I prefer to interact about spirit stuff with adults. I've never seen a child spirit. If I saw someone peeking in my windows, I'd go after them. I've done it in real life, which was stupid of course, but we all have our weaknesses. I don't want spirits "peeking" at me either. Ask who they are and try to understand or run them off.

davis-em,
The next time you see her, don't question yourself. Your not crazy. I've been through many things and actually have witnesses to some of them. Be positive and certain, no questioning, clear your mind and search for answers. Pay attention to what is coming into your mind. You may learn that they are not your thoughts but hers.

Edmund, I don't sense that they work together at all... I don't even really think they know each other. The man in the window feels very sad to me, and the woman feels like she has some sort of purpose. Thinking back, there have been other times that I've seen (or thought I'd seen) people who weren't there, but I've had nothing lately but a few twinges of "knowing".

davis_em... People want to dismiss the spiritual in whatever form it comes in much to easily. Thats the crazy part and spirits are clever in making it appear that you are or your not seeing them... In fact its a subtle trick of theirs to make you question yourself. Do you feel that the couple work together?

mystical2, she doesn't exactly "follow" him, but is present in the same vicinity as my husband, and it is not always in the house, though that is where I notice her the most. I probably notice her more than the rest of them because I see her more often since I live with and love the guy she "follow's". The "peeping Tom" used to drive me crazy. Literally scared the pee out of me the first couple of times I saw him. But now, whenever he's around I feel kind of sorry for him. I don't know why.

Edmund, often the things I "know" or the things that pop into my head, I dismiss as fantasy. I try to be very grounded... Maybe its me not wanting to be crazy? I don't think any of you are crazy, so why I can't accept that I might have a "second site" I don't know. And truthfully, since I wrote the story, I haven't seen one of them... And these are the things that make me feel like I'm nuts.

davis_em... If you can see them you can message them I use message because its not talking as we know it. But when you see her you look at her straight on and in your mind you say what's your name, or what do you want... In your mind... Usually in a firm manner but not as if you were scolding or yelling. You will get something back sometimes you have to ask several times over the course of a few days or weeks... Whenever she appears... The answer will pop in your head or if your developing your gifts sometimes in a dream. Depending on your answer is how you proceed if you want.

you are seeing them through your third eye. Does this woman follow your husband around outside of the house or is it just in the house?
I feel Edmund is right about the peeping tom. Just continuing his habit after death. Or it could be sort of left overs where you see this person repeating same thing over and over again.

Edmund, I'll try that, but she doesn't seem to acknowledge me at all. Though I am sure that she knows I'm there. She isn't always around when my husband is, its just that the only time I see her is when I'm near my husband... And the only time I see the guy in the window is when my husband is NOT around. I WOULD like to be able to "chat" with them... Just don't really know how to go about doing it, really.

davis_em... Does she see you? If so does she have a reaction? If she does you can ask her in your mind what her name is.

Glenda, How can it be helpful? And how did you know that I sometimes catch others emotions? I didn't mention that...

Dreamydre, I've wondered if I'm seeing other folks spirit guides, but if this is so, why can't I see my own? I've thought that might be it, but then I realize that I don't see anyone following me... Just others... Maybe I have some sort of mental block?

Edmund, my husband comes from a very short family (he's the tall one at 5.5ft), and the woman who follows him around is nearly 6 ft (I'm horrible at guessing height) and seems to be with him wherever he goes... Not just at our house. If she's family, she must have caught an extremely recessive gene.

Not trying to be beligerent, just trying to understand.

davis_em... Window guy sounds like he can't break a habit... In other words he just repeats... Does he interact or do anything different? And probably a hundred people will tell you that the tall lady is related to your husband... Unless she just happened to be attached to where you are living and decided to take a shine to him.

You say that these people you see follow behind certain individuals. My guess is that you are seeing their spirit guides or angels.

Since you're new, I'll be easy on you. It sounds to me like you have always been sensitive. Maybe most people are - I like to think so anyway. Perhaps you are slowing down and seeing more now. Younger, I don't think we want to see because it's too much fun finding out on our own and doing it our way. I did some, seeing, but not as much as I should have probably. Anyway, don't let it freak or control you. It's just a little bit of who you are and helpful sometimes. When it's a pain, ignore it, because you can't daze out wondering about every entity or emotion from others you happen to catch. That would be a little silly. Life is here after all and they are in their place. Sometimes we cross each other for whatever reason.
