Real Psychic Experiences

First Contact And Other Strange Happenings


To begin with, I'm no psychic, this I am sure of. I am however, it seems, ultra sensitive to certain things, situations, places.

As far as I can remember I have been a believer, although I don't really know why, I just believe. I am in my mid-30s and have experienced 2 situations which have left a strong impression. This is nothing compared to some of the stories I read on this website, but maybe someone has experienced something similar.

My first 'episode' was when I was about 16. I was sitting alone at home in a room watching an evening show, the rest of my family were in the living room. I was intensely absorbed by the show, but could begin to hear what sounded like the background noise at a big reception. The kind of noise you hear when you're in a room full of people all having conversations with others. There seemed to be a lot of people there. At first I thought it was my parents listening to a recording we had made of my grand-father's birthday so I called out, but got no answer. The sound grew louder and I remember getting annoyed at a) not getting a response to my calls and b) the sound getting louder than my TV show! That's when I started thinking something wasn't right, how could they listen to something so loud that I could hear it all the way from the living room to where I was? It's only when I began to focus less on my show and more on what I was hearing that I realized the sounds were coming from the same room I was in. Before I could do much three voices began to 'detach' themselves from the rest of the crowd. I could start hearing them more distinctly than the others if you prefer. They were three female voices of what seemed to be elderly people. They grew louder for a few seconds, more until the rest of the crowd became very faint, then one of them said, 'Listen'. I panicked. I ran out of the room into the living room where my parents were quietly having a chat, clueless to what had just happened. I'm still not sure what happened that day, but I know for a fact I wasn't mad, didn't make it up and I really think someone had something to tell me. I'm sad in a way that I didn't keep my calm as maybe whatever that 'person' had to say was important. There have been no other events of the type since.

Have any of you experienced something similar?

Second experience - about 7-8 years ago, my husband & I were traveling around France and stopped for 2 nights in a Relais-Châteaux called Château de Rochecotte. This has to be the strangest thing that ever happened to me, but from the minute we crossed the gates of that place we felt something was wrong. I won't even go into the details of how many things felt wrong as it was pretty much everything, but it just felt like nothing made sense, absolutely nothing. I began feeling extremely uneasy and, I'm ashamed to say, aggressive. I had this absurd feeling that if we spent the night there something terrible would happen to us.

I called my parents at home and told my mom about how I was feeling as she is quite open to these things. To my biggest surprise I heard my father in the background say, 'Tell her to get out of there'. Now my father is the type of man who has both feet on the ground and his head on his shoulders. It would take a lot for him to say this, yet he did. My husband and I took our stuff and left as fast as we could. I called my godfather and asked if we could spend the night at his house. As we drove away from Rochecotte it felt as if a pair of hands around my neck was slowly loosening its grip! My husband isn't a big believer, yet somehow we both felt the same way at exactly the same moment. I kept an eye on that place ever since, but have never heard of anything strange. Whatever it was, it was enough to scare us away. I do believe places can give off certain vibes and if you are sensitive to them and your gut feeling tells you to leave, then leave.

Hi Albator,
I don't know if I passed you this link with a thought to developing your empath abilities.
Very interesting reading, a little tricky too as lots of info to take in;

Also I have explained my theory on karma, (I think!) It has taken me several days "grasshopper" and it's mighty long (and probably twisted) So rather than post it on here, and in an effort to not appear a bigger loon than I already do (as my husband insists on reminding me! Lol!) Please drop me an email and I will return it as mail back to you.
😊 Linx

oops, didn't have the link!
You get out from meditation what you put in. So the more you can meditate, the higher the rewards!
I'll post a story on meditating at a later time. Watch out for my new story re contacting the spirits coming soon.
Trance - figuration, for further information on how it can be done. NOT TO BE TRIED AT HOME THOUGH!

You have to learn how to step up into their realms. We can do this when we reach a realisation of oneness! I always sound like a loon when I try and explain this, one day I may post a story about it, however for now it is suffice to say that we need to step onto their level.
Therefore we need to raise our own vibration. We can do this and dismbark from our physical plain when we master the art of meditation.
I bet you knew I was going to say that didn't you! If you have never meditated before there are a couple of focusing exercises to try here;

Hi academylin,
One of the reasons I regret having 'freaked' out is because there was, in fact, nothing threatening in the 3 old women's voices. It was my first encounter of this type and so my reflex was to run, but my gut feeling tells me two things which are quite the opposite; (i) they meant no harm, (ii) they had something to say.

I would very much like to learn how to tune into them. Any help welcome!

Perhaps the party people would have sent a message through eventually, but it seems they were as surprised as you initially.

You can attune yourself to receiving these signals clearer, it takes dedication and practise.

The gut emotion though strong was warning you of negativity. You acted correctly.

Interesting comment AnneV, and thanks to the others too for their feedback. I do believe that you sometimes need to channel your mind (thoughts, energy?) too, yet most people see/hear things when they least expect it, or even want it for that matter. And on the other side you have many situations where you try hard to get in contact and nothing happens. They really have a mind of their own 😉
I really think someone had a message to deliver and sadly enough I wasn't strong enough to listen.

All I have to msay is thank god you left that hotel, or else you may not be here to tell the story.

Hi Albator,
Well done, you listened to your intuition!
There's not many people out there who trust themselves enough to be able to do that, so a big Hooray for you.
Keep your intuition awake and don't let it be ruled by your head or your heart and you will become a fab psychic, if you want to become one.
Too many predicaments are placed in our way in everyday life where our head takes over, or equally our heart, trust your GUT FEELING as you did back at the hotel and it may surprise you at just how simple life can be!
See you on the flip!

You stopped doing what you were doing amidst a gaggle of noise (your tv) while "they" stopped what they were doing amids a gaggle of noise (their party) and both started listening to the other. Funny, isn't it? They heard you, you heard them.

Our layer between worlds is thinner than we think. If we'd all just shut our tv's off, stop and listen, we might actually wake up from this self-induced coma we live in. A really good movie depicting this is "The Others" with Nicole Kidman. In fact, it's exactly like what happened to you.

What a blessing for you to see that there is more out there than what meets the ear!
