The Being Followed Feeling


Ever since I can remember, I have always felt as if I am being followed, or that someone is right behind me. When I was younger, it used to really alarm me. The suggested explanations are either a previous life experience or that I am sensing a spirit, or that I am mental. I have a lot of other experiences, but this is what bothers me most.

Also, I tend to dream events; just average things, like conversations, which I remember in the morning, and then the dream happens the same day. If I ask people what they think, I get the "...just your mind playing tricks..." reply. I'm sure that it isn't my mind playing tricks.

I sometimes see auras, they are very large and bright, but always see-through, but I am short sighted, so that is also explained away by people I know.

I also see people sitting or standing right behind my family members (sort of looking over their shoulders), but I'm not sure if it is my imagination. They seem to be somewhere in between being in my mind and being in front of me (if it isn't my imagination, then I wonder how they are connected to my family members? Guardian angels?).

Sometimes when I hold a pen or pencil, I seem to write things that aren't from my mind. I often dream the same things as my brother, even though we are four year apart in age. Regardless, we are very close.

I also do the 'guess who's ringing before they do' and the 'gut feelings are right' stuff. I often feel very drained when I am around lots of people; my emotions go crazy: Sad, happy, angry. I get headaches and feel dizzy. I start seeing the situation from one removed or above, and random things come into my head; names, sentences, voices, faces.

Very few people I know believe me. I've only told the closest ones, and they started throwing salt over their left shoulders (literally) and I just need to know what I can do about it, or if you know what any of it means or what I can do about the 'being followed' feeling or the people I see behind my family, to find out about it.

I hate the shadow people. They scare the crap out of me. I first started seeing one my 7th grade year. (I'm now in 9th grade and 15 years old.) He would catch me off guard when I was alone at home, normally when I was on the phone or in the kitchen, and I would watch him walk by the house window. It creeped me out for quite a while, but then I got used to him. But one night I was laying in bed with the lights off and I felt the need to look up and saw a white form so I got up and turned the lights on and it went away, but I was spooked so I layed back down facing away from it. A couple minutes later I felt the need to look over again and in each corner across from me there were shadow people. Three in one corner and one with two white forms in my other corner. What scared me the most is that my light was on, so it's kind of hard to say it was just my eyes or a light of something else. Now I see them on a regular basis out of the corner of my eye. It's like they play peek-a-boo with me. Not fun. ]:

Yes I too have the feeling of someone behind me very strong and am looking for answers or guidance as to what it is or how to deal. I get very jumpy when it happens especially if it's very strong and seems as though it's running up behind you. Is it a wandering spirit?
Tuva551: Same with the shadows I get those a lot as well which is why I'm here on this site and on the web searching for help and understanding because I want to work with it rather than living my next 25 years running away scared, which is what I've done up until this point 😨

Hey blue eyes I get these feelings all the time and it used to scare me but as it happened more I got used to it. Recently I caught the things that have been following me. I think you have shadow people following you. I see them all the time out of the corner of my eye. 😁 I agree with YVE72 and I would help you with this gift if you want.

Good luck 😁

The things around your family could be their spirit guides or their guardians, and I too experience things like you. I just don't see auras. You're not mental! Don't doubt your abilities or you'll talk yourself out of them and they go dormant. Don't tell people who you can't fully trust, they could use it against you, and soon everyone will think you're insane. I've tried telling my close friends and I don't think they fully believe me, but my boyfriend does and my sister as well so I guess it's just a matter of who really loves you and knows you're not insane. Good luck with your abilities, don't doubt yourself ❤

Hi - I think you are just sensitive. It happens. Loud noises have always bothered me, loud music even as a teen, crowds, bad people. Just learn to live with the fact and if it helps you in the pursuit of your career or to protect yourself or family, great. I think a lot of people are this way and just ignore it. Some of us are curious why.

Hi blue eyes... I wouldn't do anything about the ones around your family members because they're not causing them any distress and may be their spirit guides or loved ones you're unfamiliar with. I'd leave them be.

You have a lot of things going on with you:
*clairvoyance via precognitive dreams, seeing auras & spirit.
*automatic writing
*clairsentient & empathic

My advice start researching the various psychic abilities & how they work. If you have specific questions about an individual ability, I'm sure someone on the board will gladly help. Please inform your friends that psychic abilities are gifts from God and to stop being so close-minded.

Peace & blessings. Welcome to the board.
