I am, by no means, an experienced psychic and I have never really considered myself as having special abilities before this, but lately I've noticed that I just might have something if I could just work on it.
My interest in this site actually started with my older brother. He woke up one morning a few days after Christmas and worriedly asked my mom if anyone was sick in the family and if they were close to dying. He had a dream the night before of his teeth falling out and the last time he had that dream, my uncle Frankie died. The night after this, we found out that our uncle Kenny had died. I became curious about my brother's experience and I researched the teeth falling out dream which led me to this site.
Reading the stories made me think about my own family. We have no real psychics in our family but we all believe in these kinds of things and we have all had some freaky experiences (which is why my brother took note of that dream immediately.) I might publish these stories about my family members at a later date, but right now I'll focus on my own experiences.
My aunt on my mother's side is the most spiritual in the family and she tells me a story of what happened when I was about 2 and she was babysitting my older brother and me. She was sleeping in the same room as us and she woke up suddenly from a deep sleep to see a ghost floating above her, as if inspecting her. When she woke up she became frightened and the ghost became scared as well - as was apparent in the surprised expression in his face. The ghost disappeared and for some reason, she made the connection that the ghost belonged to me - she got the feeling that he's my guardian angel. A few months later she was at my great-grandmothers house and she was looking through some old photos when she suddenly came across a picture of the ghost she saw. My great-grandmother said that the man was her father and that his name was Joseph. (I'm named after him.)
All my life I've experienced strong deja vu, but it started to become stronger a couple of years ago. I'll have a moment where I'll know that I dreamt about something before - but it's usually something small like my teacher passing out a certain worksheet or a friend saying something.
I also feel that there are ghosts around me, especially in my room. I'll always see a flash of white when I enter my room and it will disappear before I can get a clear view of it. A few months ago I was in my bed and all of a sudden, my bedroom door slowly creaked open. I laid there for a few minutes freaking out when the door closed shut by itself (this happened after I shouted to go away).
Also, I feel that I have a deep connection with my girlfriend. I always know what she's thinking and I can always sense when she's upset and she's going to call. Sometimes, I won't be near my phone but I'll get the sudden urge to get it and as I grab it, the phone will ring and it's her.
Just a few weeks ago, (a little after my uncle Kenny died and I discovered this site) I decided to play a little game with her over the phone. I thought of a number from 1-10 and I asked her to think of a number herself. I said the number I was thinking of and it would be the same one she was thinking. I proceeded to do the same with a number from 1-20, then 1-100, then finally, 1-1000. I got every number right. I also did the same with colors, animals, and foods. It was uncanny how I got every single thing that she was thinking correct.
Finally, (and I'm closing this because I know I'm rambling.) the night after playing the game with my girlfriend, I decided to ask for a sign from my spirit guide in the color blue. I didn't make it specific but I asked for it to be pretty significant so that I would know it was my spirit guide. (This came from advice from one of Oracle101's comments. Her stories are great for tips for anyone new here.) I woke up in the middle of the night and when I rolled over to get more comfortable, I noticed that there was a blue ball of light illuminated in my cologne bottle on my dresser. I turned the light on and I realized that my deodorant was behind the bottle which caused the orb but, when I tried testing it again by turning the light off and going in the same position I was in when I saw the light, it didn't show up. It could have been a coincidence, but it was significant enough for me to know that it was my spirit guide.
I'm writing this story because I want to ask for advice from you experienced psychics. I want to expand on something that I know I can achieve if I work at it. I want to be able to see the future and I want to have more contact with my spirit guide. I believe that everyone has some sort of psychic ability and it could get stronger if they just worked on it. What's your take on this?
