Real Psychic Experiences

Old Soul


I don't know where or how to start. I'm not even sure if I should be at this site. My grandmother always told me I had an old soul and other people (including my friends) always thought I was very mature for my years. My friends use to tease me and call me the "mom" of the group. Ever since I could remember things have happened or I've felt so strongly as though they were happening to me but could never figure out what was going on.

I could sense people's being (i.e., if they were happy, sad, angry, mean spirited, or to just stay away from someone) not from what they were portraying on the outside but from looking into their eyes. Also sensed things weren't right about going down a street or a public place. It was so strong I just wouldn't go. I've also turned down houses that I went to look at to buy. I would step in the house then tell the agent "I don't like this house show me another one..." And they would look at me like I was crazy and say but you haven't even looked at it yet..." But I didn't care. I would just say take me to another one.

Even when walking into a house sometimes I just want to run out. I don't feel safe or feel fear in that house or dread. So I guess (at the risk of sounding crazy) I feel the emotions of a house as well. When tragedy strikes anywhere in the world, I feel it. I mean I FEEL what the people went through deep within me and many times have to change the channel or stop reading the article. I become very upset or have a feeling of great dread and sadness. This feeling stays with me always for at least 2 to 3 days afterwards.

My father died recently. I was in my bed sleeping when I started sensing "something" in my room; a presence. Then it became stronger in that the next few nights in a row my bed would shake as though someone were trying to wake me up. I was too scared to look so I kept my eyes closed and pretended I was sleeping. I never felt malice or threatened so I figured it must of been my dad. It got so bad that my dog who use to sleep in her little bed beside mine left the room frightened and actually slept in the hallway. She now sleeps in my daughter's room as my dog refuses to come into my room anymore.

After 3 or 4 months of sleepless nights, I had a dream. The doorbell rang and I answered it like I always do. It was my father at the door. Not the sick, emaciated father that left us, but he looked healthy, strong and had this glow on his face. I stood there shocked. Couldn't even speak but I remember thinking that maybe the doctors made a mistake and that he really is alive. He then smiled and said, "Aren't you going to let your father in?" So I did. He sat on my sofa and talked with the children and my husband as though nothing happened. I asked him "Dad, are you all right?" He said, "Yes. I am fine." I asked him "Do you need anything? Money or Food?" He said, "No, I don't need it where I am"

Then I asked him if he needed to have someone come to help take care of him because I knew he was very ill. He smiled and said, "No. I don't need help anymore. I can take care of myself..." Then his mother (my grandmother has been dead 10 years now) came out of my bedroom. She too had a glow on her face and I knew it was her but she looked different - happy - peaceful. She came next to her son and touched his face and said to me, "look at my son, look at my son." Then my father said he had to leave and I begged him not to go. I began crying (I'm actually crying writing this) and begging him to stay. He said he couldn't stay. He and my grandmother got up to go and I woke up sobbing in my bed. After that dream I've had no disturbances in my bedroom although my dog still won't sleep in there.

I've also had promotions about people I'm close to like my sister and cousin. Every time I would dream of my cousin Maria something very good or very bad would happen in her life. She finally asked me not to call her anymore when I dreamt about her but I couldn't help calling her to make sure she was okay. I also had a dream about my sister once that she needed help and I was going everywhere to try to get her help. I called my mother because I was worried and she told me something did happen to her that was horrible.

I guess what I'm trying to ask - I don't think I'm psychic - but I do pick up things. Can someone out there explain to me these things I am experiencing? Or am I crazy?

Well yes just like many other people you can sense feelings of people and things alike. One thing that I found to be very helpful was to do meditations and what I call "gathering." Basicly for gathering you could gather energy from the earth and yourself and block out the emotions if they get too strong. However, when it comes to sensing how people and houses are just completely go with the flow so you can better understand the area or person. Even so, if you do fell fear of anything thing or anyone leave the area immediately. And I would love to help anyway so just send me a message or whatever you can if you need help. And good luck in the future.

I appreciate the support guys. I would probably classify myself as a "sensitive" more than psychic even though I've had psychic experiences. Even predicting the Super Bowl (with an actual score number and the winner) one year but then the following year nothing or about people I'm close to but these psychic episodes as I call them are random. But I do sense spirits/beings of the living and the dead. I can look into someone's eyes and feel their whole being even if they put on a different face in public. I can sense what they really are inside and out. That's a weird feeling too. Sometimes my husband will say to me "how can you say that when you've only met them once?" then a few weeks or months later it turns out to be true. Finally my husband started to believe me and asked me to help interview potential employees for his business. That's amazing Bone that you can see them - I don't see them but I can definitely sense them as though they were right in front of me. Thanks Guys!

Not crazy at all. Spirits can contact us through our dreams. You are normally in a place where you can think as you do while a wake. Animals can see and sense spirits even better than we can. What you are sensing in some of those homes is negative energy. The energy can come from a spirit/spirits that are in the home or you are feeling the energy left there from the family that lived there previously.

inessa you are not crazy, I have had the same thing happen to me. There have been houses I have walked into and felt this feeling of terrible dread & I had to get out of there & I don't know about you but the right side of my head would just hurt. I to see spirits"not by choice" & my head hurts when spirits are around I have kept it on the down low for some 20 years and just resently found out my grandma has her whole life " she's 95" I have a 11 year old boy who has said he has seen ghost in our apartment which I see also but I have never said anything to him that I also see them but recently both saw one at the same time so I'm going to tell you the same thing I told him " just go with it!"
