How Do I Know If This Is Real Or In My Head?


I have experienced things my entire life. I can sense when I am not alone, I have seen objects be moved, etc... And I have seen one actual spirit (it was my step dad). Ever since I was a little girl, in every place I have ever lived I seem to be contacted in some form. Mostly a simple gesture by the entity to let me know I am not alone like something being thrown/moved. But I'll be the first to tell you I am a huge 'fraidy cat so I often pray for protection and always ask whatever it is NOT to show itself. More recently (and increasingly over the last few months) I am having lucid dreams where I am very aware I am in a "dream state..." I am surrounded in my bedroom by 20-30 people. They're pulling at me and talking all at once to the point it's just chatter. I don't sense they want to hurt me but I do sense they're all touching my arms and reaching out to me hoping if they touch me I'll connect to them and we can communicate. These are not people I know, or have seen, and they are not still living.

2-3 years ago I lived in a house in Miami and was very aware of a little girl's presence. I sensed her for my last year in that house and she eventually began appearing in my dreams. I don't know why I know the girl was one in the same but I just knew. Those dreams were also lucid, I was very aware of everything. It was my first experience with a lucid dream, she would try to pull me from my bed and I would fight because I was beyond terrified. She had a very negative energy. I sensed her presence a lot when I was awake and my dog wouldn't even go into certain areas of my home. My point being I have experienced these dreams before where I am contacted and am very aware I in a dream state and have to wake myself up to escape the situation. However now the energies do not feel negative (yet), and there are many people all at once, not just one.

I am reaching out to anyone who can help me understand exactly what is going on. I can't see a psychologist because they'll say I'm crazy. My family laughs at me and has always made fun of my ghost stories, but it's getting more intense and I was afraid to go to sleep. I wake up several times a week at 3am. I believe my "sensitivity" is increasing and I think people are trying to communicate with me but I make it very clear I am scared so they probably know not to appear when I am actually awake. Let me be clear, I am fully aware in these dreams. At some point I make a "conscious" decision that I need to get out of them and I start screaming as loud as I can until I literally wake myself or my boyfriend up from hearing the screams. I don't know if you can assist me, but I would like to speak to someone who can help me find out how much of this is real, how not to be afraid and how I can control it. I've had seen too many objects move from entities that I do not believe this is imagination.

I recently visited a psychic who (before I shared any of this) told me I am sensitive. She suggested I close my third eye at night before I go to bed to stop the "visits..." It completely worked. I don't know if it was just in my head but it worked. Now I am seriously confused. If this is a real gift then I feel guilty that I turned it off. I would really love to know definitively if I have a gift, and how I go about developing this.

Thank you to every one who reads my story. Please contact me and share your experiences and any words of wisdom you may have.

I've recently been having similar issues; not knowing if what I think is real - or just in my head.

The only advice I can give here I guess is, follow your gut instinkt. It's usually always right (atleast for me)

Im having very similar experiences and I'm very scared to sleep at night, it feels like halucinations or 'lucid dreams'. I don't like it as I never want to see what is touching me, but they get violent by pulling my hair, trying to have sex with me or shouting in my ears, and when I pray they go away and I consciously wake up.

umcame - perhaps I'm not the best person to advise you. I do have a philosophy. This is your life; you get one shot at it so build it. That otherworld, listen, and let it help you and shut out what you don't want. Be grateful for the help. Don't waste your time on the negative. Bad stuff - be firm. Block it.

I see as you do, but I have never had that many people appear at one time. You can turn the switch back on. Just reverse the process. For me, I would not admit my fear to them though. They attract to fear because it gives them more energy (yours). Everyone has there own method to help reduce fear, which we do all have from time to time. Prayer helps me. I have spirits
In my house now, one a girl, whom I don't trust and another a man. Have seen the woman (negative) which I believe is also the girl. You are not alone in this.
There are many books in the library on this subject. There are also psychic's that help others develop their abilities, but be careful on who you choose if you do so.

I suggest reading this book that is pretty cool right now, I'm almost done with it. Its a pretty easy read called The Gift: Understanding and Developing your Pyschic Abilities, by Echo Debline, I think, or something like that. Its pretty intresting, and it also says that everyone has these abilities, but I still would call it a Gift, seeing as it will take 1000s of years, or never, for people to even learn of it and then to understand its not evil, the bible doesn't even say the pychic gifts are evil for one...anyway, id pick up the book, its perfect for begginers

I'm new to this site. My opinion is everyone has a spiritual "skill". My skill is being able to distinguish between different types of energy. The energy associated with an emphathic person is different than the energy associated with an astral travel or a portal activator or a rock or a horse or etc. My experiences has been in helping other people learn about their skill (s). By the way "thought" is a type of energy. It is great that you learned how to turn your skill off. To turn your skill on you couple "thought" with "isness".

Energy can flow in two different directions. One is you giving energy. The other is energy being taken from you. The energy being given is usually associated with "love". The energy being taken is associated with "fear", "confusion" or "choas". The question becomes "were you giving your energy or was your energy being taken from you by someone else or neutral".

One thing that applies to my skill is that the voice carries all of the energies associated with the "experience". I haven't learned how to pick-up on the energies associated with writing about an "experience", yet. By helping I'm learning! That's why I help people.

Have you tried to communicate with one of the 20-30 people in your room? You can communicate telepathically. For me I hear the words in the center of my head. I had one person who had the words appear on a chalkboard. My first impression is that your "skill" is telepathic communication. That is why you have so many people "good" or "bad" trying to get your individual attention.

If anyone would like to contact me you can reach me at giftofenergy [at] I have a phone plan that allows unlimited calls in the continental USA. Therefore, I don't have a problem making the call.

I once heard the psychic John Edwards say that we should never call psychic/mediumship abilities as gifts because they are skills that each and every person on this planet has. And I agree with him.
I do, however, think there are some of us who are more developed and more sensitive than others. I think people who say that they are not psychic at all could easily become so if they just tried.
All this being said, I believe your story. You clearly are a very sensitive medium. I myself am an empath and have precognitive abilities.
While it doesn't sound as if these entities meant you any harm (I'll bet it's just the opposite, they probably want you to help them), it is certainly within your right to shut off your third eye when you choose to do so. You don't have to be open to these experiences 24/7. Certainly, not. That would drive anyone out of their mind. However, now that you know how to turn 'it' all off, you also know how to turn 'it' back on. Don't feel guilty. Think of this as one more lesson learned on your path. Should you decide that you would like to open yourself back up to these experiences, you know how to turn the switch to on, so to speak.
I don't think these skills should ever get in the way of a good night's rest or our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Perhaps now that you have the confidence to turn this off, you can have the confidence to eventually open yourself up to these experiences in broad daylight where I would think they would be less scary (maybe not.)
I hope this gives you some encouragement. My advice - don't be too hard on yourself, you are not crazy, do some research if you can on psychic/medium abilities, and talk to as many people as you can who have had similar experiences.
