Paranoia Or Sensitivity?


I should probably begin by saying that I was- and still kind of am- a skeptic. Though being a skeptic causes a lot of turmoil for myself sometimes, I've stuck to my guns, and stayed skeptical, however stupid is sometimes seems.

For as long as I can remember - which, granted, is not much at all. Before my 14th birthday, things are very vague. Barely even a glimpse of a memory. But what little I do remember, involves having many dreams, which then came true, silly dreams that can easily be explained, such as seeing a woman in a red jumper pushing a pram outside my junior school as I stood at the gate.

I have also always, or at least for as long as I can remember, felt like a part of me was screaming, accusing me of being a complete idiot and wasting time. I'm monumentally bad at wasting time:) But I like to think I'm not a complete idiot.

Quite recently, I've been having much stronger 'feelings', gut feelings, hunches, that sort of thing. Multiple times I've been with my mother, driving down the motorway, and, at first, I only subconsciously thought; it's always so horrible when people die in car crashes, and consciously thought; I hate it when people die. When someone gets run over, or hit by a car.

Recently, as in the past month or two months, I've consciously thought of my hatred for car crashes, only once or twice have I thought about people dying in car crashes. After thinking it, we've always driven past a car crash, within minutes. Only when I think it's horrible when people die have there been fatalities in these crashes.

I also can judge moods of people- albeit, not all the time, and even then, only with certain people. But that can also be explained, because the people I can judge are usually people I know.

My Grandmother used to tell my mother that she was 'sensitive', if not psychic, and my mother also believes she is sensitive. When my Grandmother died, I knew and called the hospital minutes after her death.

Obviously, I now have a morbid fear of cars, and driving fast. So much that I feel heavy and sick when we get in the car, but more because I'm completely convinced my mother and I are going to be in a crash, and I've had many dreams of car crashes with my mother and me in the car.

Since speaking with my mother about this, I've felt a lot less like I'm being torn apart, like one side of me is screaming and accusing me of idiocy, as I mentioned before. And though some of the feelings have gotten much stronger, the general heaviness has lifted somewhat.

Apologies for the long post, I hope it makes sense, and I look forward to any comments I receive, I just need a little closure. Even if you all just laugh at me and tell me it's nothing at all. Opinions are appreciated.

Nagging is just a form of communication, perhaps a caring form. Don't negate it totally. I hate being nagged personally, but I still listen to my kiddies.

Firstly, thank you all for your comments, they are muchly appreciated.
Maggiemayhem, what you have said makes a lot of sense, and I have enough memory of school to have a vague idea what the Law of Attraction is:) and thank you for the meditation suggestion, I'll be looking that up in a few minutes.
GlendaSC, interesting comment, about what has happened around me in my past, and I'll be sure to tell my mum that 'nagging isn't always bad', as long as I'm doing the nagging anyway:) I am trying not to worry too much, but I think it'll take a while.
Pinkbabe63, I figured if I did have some sort of ability, I would try and enhance it, to see if I could do any good, but I'm a bit of a coward, so it'll probably take me a while:)
Thanks again for the comments, as I said before, they're appreciated.

Hi, from what I have read you seem to have similar abilities to many people on this site and I don't think we could all be crazy or something so I would try not to worry about that and yes as maggiemayhem said try not to worry as you have the ability to see car crashes you are worried that it might happen to you or a loved one but the more you think about it the worse you will feel, I don't know if meditation is a solution but please try not to worry about this and if you can try and use your growing abilities to help people:)

Black - I have no idea. Like you, I'm just trying to learn. Perhaps your mom was getting careless, as a mom I have been at times, and you made her aware. Nagging is not always bad. Perhaps you will one day work in a firm that stresses safety in some area and you are learning that field even now. Perhaps you are picking up, in some way, things that have happened around you in the past. I always feel the truth is in the middle somewhere, so it might be a part of many things. Fear is not good though, let it go. Figure out that part, and you will grow.

Please don't call yourself crazy, you're not! I understand those feelings you have and there's a very simple way to help you calm down. Try meditating every morning to clear your mind of those negative thoughts. From my perspective it looks like since you are aware of your ability to predict car crashes, you're paranoid it will happen to you and a loved one. And trust me, the more you think about it, the more likely it will happen. I suggest you read up on the Law of Attraction... It will certainly help change your state of mind. Best of luck! ❤
