Real Psychic Experiences

What Am I Supposed To Do With It?


I am a 25 year old second year medical student. I was just watching a lecture 30 minutes ago on my laptop when my "psychic" experience occurred again. I quickly googled psychic and found this site. I use quotations because it is a weird event, and psychic is the closest that I can come to describing it.

One of my professors was giving his lecture today about bone diseases. And in his lecture he made a reference to an ex football running back, Bo Jackson. This may seem insignificant but just an hour earlier that name, and his image flashed in and out of my head. I don't know why it did, I was not thinking about football, or gruesome injuries for that matter. It was at that point where I paused the lecture, got up and had to go outside to get a breath of fresh air because this was not the first time.

This ability, for lack of better words, seems very useless. But it occurs so often that I have to pay attention to it and acknowledge that it happens. I am in medical school now, I watch little to no television if any, anymore. Before coming here I was studying to get into med-school, so I was barely watching television or anything then. But I often get images and scenes of movies or specific episodes of television series that randomly gets projected in my head at the blink of an eye and then goes away. And out of the 30-45 minutes of television that I do end up watching per week, it ends up being the exact same scene of the movie or television show that someone changes the channel to randomly.

This has been happening for the past couple of years. At first I thought it was a coincidence, but the consistency of this has led me to believe that I am either crazy, psychic, have a small brain tumor somewhere, or my mind is playing tricks with me. This has happened often with the television programs and movies within the past two years. They're generally movies and programs that I have seen before, a long time ago. But what is concerning me now is how often it is happening now and also it has crossed over to things that I haven't seen before like lecture's and news broadcasts.

A great example is the late Michael Crichton. I believe I woke up a little later than I planned to and I was watching ER, I watched it until the ending credits, and I would always see his name, but this time it stood out for some reason, I paid no attention to it. A week and I half later, I'm in the line at a bank and CNN is on (I never watch news), and it had the breaking news that Michael Crichton passed away from cancer--author of Jurassic Park and ER executive producer.

There also had been another instance where I was thinking about a specific condition called "Dupuytren's Contracture" randomly for a week, and the week after I was randomly looking at a specific upload about controversy of 9/11 and secret organizations (I can't remember why I was looking at it), and the video made a reference about the leaders of the world generally being afflicted by an inherited condition called "Dupuytren's Contracture". Needless to say I was immediately terrified and stopped the video. I calmed down and attributed it to being a coincidence. But now a days I'm not so sure anymore of what to think.

I just hope someone can tell me something about this, and about how and why I'm able to do this. Sometimes I sometimes imagine that it is a future me sending me clues from the future about something I need to do. But that is crazy, right?

I once had a friend that experienced similar psychic experiences through her dreams. She would often vividly see future occurrences or get hints as to the appearances of places she would visit. For a while she had felt uncertain as to what was going on as well. I listened to her and tried to express that she didn't have to be afraid of what she felt. I even encouraged her to make use of the skill that she had.

Your not crazy at all. You are just really in tune with what you are sensing. If you feel that it is right to continue to make use of your skill, then you should go for it. Just know that I and many others are all supporting you like this.

Hello. My name is Debbie. When I was a little girl I had "knowings" about people around me. I told my mother about some of my "knowings" and she said these things weren't true. So I began to doubt myself. Later, I learned my "knowings" were true. Now I'm an adult and I have "knowings" frequently, and I always trust the information. Sometimes I receive urgent advice in my own voice but I don't think the advice in coming from me. I follow the advice because it seems wise to do so, and it seems to want to keep me out of harms way.

In the past, I've told friends about my "knowings" if I received information about them or their boyfriends or their husbands, but I've lost friendships over doing this, so now I just keep the information to myself. I have learned people prefer not to hear the truth about themselves or their loved ones sometimes.

My grandmother and Mom have crossed over, but they pop into see me sometimes. I don't see them, but they make their presence known. And I love this! When my Mom first let me know she was here, it frightened me a lot. But then I was very excited by the idea.

I have heard the audible voice of my spirit guide twice. He had a loud deep baritone voice as though he were speaking under water. He said "Good Morning." I was working at my computer at the time. It was 10:30am. It scared me so bad I would have run out of the house if I could have. But I would have run passed where I had heard the voice, and I sure wasn't going to do that, so I just sat paralyzed in my computer chair for 30 minutes. After calming down I got up and walked around the house and went outside and took some deep breaths and realized what happened. I feel very grateful, and wish I could hear from him again.

Are there people like me out there? Is there anyone out there that are truly joyous about living side by side with their departed loved ones. Do you look forward, like me, to the signs during the day, or during the week, that they are with you? Isn't it glorious to receive special information from the beyond, such as a warning sign? Do you not feel a special protection? I feel angels protect while I'm driving. Do you? I can't tell you have many times I have almost been hit by other drivers on the highway. Others cars have been so close to me I have closed my eyes in horror knowing we would collide. But there was no collision so I opened my eyes again and continued driving.

My stories of protection go on and on. I want to write a book about my paranormal experiences. But I don't simply want to talk about myself. I want to include the experiences of others. I have toyed with this idea of a book for about 2-3 years. I didn't know where to go to meet other people like me. But then I found this site.

When I read your stories, I think what touches me most is the self-doubt that many of you are experiencing. I understand this because I went through it as well. I want you all to know it's temporary. That self-doubt will pass. You are not crazy. Each one of you is gifted and blessed, although I realize it may not always feel that way. You are spectacular human beings! Hang on to that knowledge.

If you are willing to share your experiences with me, please do so, at debbie73160 at I am particularly looking for people (kids of all ages) who have positive experiences with the supernatural or with their departed loved ones, etc.

Also, I want to know how the departed describe the other side. What is it like living there? What is God like? Have you seen God? Is there a Devil? Is there a Hell?

To what extent can our guardian angels help us? Can they help us find jobs? Can they help us come up with the few extra dollars when we are short of the rent money?

What about healing angels? When we are sick or our beloved pets are sick, will they help heal our pets? What are the angels' names?

Please do not send me any information that I cannot publish in my upcoming book. With your stories, please send your first and last name, city and state you're from, and telephone number in case I need to call you for clarification. I will only print your last initial if you request it. Thank you.

As I have mentioned before, more and more people are becoming aware of a different level of consciousness, this is effecting many people in very many and varied ways. Largely, new souls (it would seem) are realising (or remembering is another school of thought) an ability which appears, and probably is a level of psychicness, others are tuning into spirituality, some are beginning to practise Shamanism or Wiccen, whatever the direction is in which you are being sent, don't panic, just go through the motions. Anne V - I think - is very clued up on these matters, as I too have researched the worlds fear bringers, trust me in order to explain who they/ what this is is no easy feat and for three weeks now I have been struggling to write it in "laymans" terms.
However...No you are not wrong, it kind of is a message from your future, call it your wake up call, and interestingly, head back to the 9/11 site you were on and if you have time, you poor student you, do some digging there too! It's all relevant!
See you on the flip!

Unlike some, I don't think being tuned in, sensitive, psychic, whatever you name it is unusual or weird. I've always been. I assume many others are, and we have some limits. Those are frustrating at times. I've been told a flat-out "no" twice.

i would like to elaborate a little more (which I always seen to do) and say that you don't have to recieve the message or vision or whatever at least twice. It may only happen once, but if the duration between the time you had the vision and the time it occurs is short then, for me anyways, it means the vision came twice or more for sure. If I only get it once then a "deja vu" experience is pretty much all I get and I can't acctually make any rational/relevant prediction on what will be. I can just sort of watch it happen.

When I was in college, it was tiring and challenging and I wanted high grades. No just passing. I can remember dreaming tests. That's not great on essay tests because you can write too much and too long on the first ones and realize that you won't finish the others. It's frustrating to leave out stuff. Anyway, if you are "psychic," I prefer senstive, then healing is a good field. Some can't be healed, but being able to listen and have sympathy will be helpful. Some will be. My fav saying is - God is God and I'm not. It just makes sense. The medical field is practical because there are jobs in this area which also makes sense.

That's awsome your in med school. I'm in university too. I take mathematics.

Hey since your in med school what would you say about epileptics? Just because I once read that they take in information and store it out of chronological order sometimes and that makes it seem like a dejavu. I once figured that was a possibility, but kind of ruled it out.

I like these visions and things a lot of the time but sometimes waiting for another experience where I can learn more about it seems like too long a wait. Even though I know another one will probably come to me by midway through tomorow lol.

To answer your question well yes. I think that's probably exactly what it is, they our messages from ourselves from the future. I wrote a comment about this on someone elses page and it was all about how it seems like we have an awareness as well as a connection to our future conciousness. I'm not good at explaining this but I'll try, and you just take your time in reading it and understanding it because it's directed straight towards your question and might help.

Okay I find that it's like a point in the past, for whatever reason, get's flagpointed and then the future somehow sends a message to that point (or we just happen to pick up on it somehow in the past). I figure this is why I only get them where a decent amount of feeling is attached to it because those are the easiest to pick up on. Here's the thing though. We don't really take notice to this stuff that we visioned in the past until we start getting clues in our present. I figure that's when things start to kind of cluster together. One little clue kind of causes this domino effect on the things that we have acctually allready seen/felt/visioned once before. So to sum it up. We vision it once in the past and then again before it happens so that by the time it happens in the future we have visioned it at least (but not limited to) twice.

Just try to focus these sorts of things with your school man. Med schools tough enough as it is but while trying to learn about psychic stuff it's probably tougher. So if you want to learn about it try to direct your focus towards medicine.

Now considering the fact that I am in university and the fact that I know people in university and I understand how most of them would regard everything I just said as complete nonsense I still hope it's something more then that to you.

Regardless to say man I think it probably means your on your path, and it's probably a good sign. I don't think it's about something you "need to do" but perhaps just a growing awareness of the latter.

I must say, I disagree slightly with AnneV and Nalex.

Yes, there are a lot of people who are 'like you' or 'like us.' Yes, it's not a gift. But a skill. But with all skills is the potential to perform well with such a skill, and some people have potential, others have next to none.

But that doesn't mean that this should be any less of an adventure, a chance to discover the wonders of the world around you, and the potential that lies within you and every human being around you.

It's not something that you can immediately "do something with." I've only begun to gain control, to release the fear that masks me in a literal barrier of energy from all of my potential. And even then, it becomes second nature, integrating itself into your life.

All things in due time. You will know what to do when the opportune moments come.

AnneV is right, these powers are not just something you figure out what to do with. Your powers come in when you need them, or if you just playing around imagining them come in to affect. I don't SUPER exercise mine because I like it to be a surprise, and if they are trying to tell me something important I know.

It's not like someone's given you a dog that you need to figure out what to do with it. Having the ability to sense things outside of your body/physical senses is normal. What's not obvious is that though this is normal it's been twisted over time by fear-based entities and now that we've got access to the internet, we're finding out how wide-spread this really is.

This ability is right along the lines of everything else you can do. Just accept it and duly note when it happens. And lots of things in this life are pointless (watching tv for one). This can or cannot be pointless depending on your level of interest. You could easily work with your skills and make them much better. That brings knowledge, intuition and all sorts of other 'pointless' skills.

You're not alone, strange, crazy, or even that gifted. You're like a million other people who is able to get a small glimpse into what's part of our natural make-up as a human.

Enjoy or ignore, the choice is yours.
