I remember my first experience happened when I was 12 years old. My mother took me to church, and on the way home, I kept thinking about what it would be like if someone I knew died. Looking back, this was a really weird thought, but at the time it seemed normal. I didn't say anything to my mother, and we rode home in silence.
When we pulled into our driveway, my father came outside to meet us with the phone in his hand. He said he had some bad news. Without thinking, I just blurted out, "Mrs. X died, right?" She was a close family friend, in her mid 30's who was perfectly healthy with two young kids. It turned out she had died in a terrible car accident the night before. My dad just stared at me and asked who had told us. My mother looked shocked and started to cry, and I told my father that nobody had told us, I just knew. Needless to say, my parents were pretty freaked out.
Things like this have always happened to me. I sometimes simply know things that I just shouldn't know. At times it's almost like I can see what people are thinking. For example, one time, when I was 17, I remember seeing this woman at some event my parents took me to, and I immediately knew she had just lost her daughter. It was like I could just see her thoughts, it was very odd. I had never met her before in my life, but somehow I knew this about her. I nudged my dad and told him, and he just condescendingly said, "Sure, whatever you say." Slightly irked, I whispered it to my mother and she just looked at me like I had lost my mind. Looking back, I'm not sure why I felt such a need to tell someone about it, but I just got this compulsion. Later on in the evening, the woman approached my parents and I, and commented about what a beautiful girl I was. She then started to cry and told us how her daughter had died recently, and that I reminded her of her. My parents never said a word about it to me.
Many times, my friends and family members will call me to tell me something that has just happened in their lives, and I'll just blurt it out before they can even tell me what it is. It kind of freaks them out, but many of them attribute my weird ability to the fact that I have a psychology degree. I just agree with them, but I know that this just isn't normal.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm supposed to do something with this thing. Maybe I do have psychic abilities and maybe I'm supposed to help people with it. Does anyone know who I should contact in the Georgia/USA area for guidance? Any help would be appreciated.
