Real Psychic Experiences

Not Sure If I'm A Psychic Or Not


My name is Chris and I'm 17 years old. I have been having strange experiences since I was about 12 or so. One thing that happens to me quite a bit is Deja Vu. I'll be at school or the golf course or a theme park and I'll get this strange feeling that I have been there and experienced this before. Almost as if I'm reliving a memory. These are usually fleeting experiences that last for 5 seconds or so but they affect me to the point where I have to pause and refocus myself.

Another thing that I have found I'm able to do is detect when someone enters a room or passes close to me without touching me. During the latter I usually feel a strange tingle run down my back, a little like when you get the Goosebumps.

An interesting occurrence that I have observed at school several times is an ability to make certain teachers call on me. I first noticed this when I was 14 when I consciously thought the words, "Call on me." when I was really focusing. Amazingly, she called on me. I was taken aback by this and have since been able to duplicate this on several occasions.

I'm also able to read people really well. What I mean by this is I can tell how people are feeling without really talking to them. I think I got this from my mom and her father before her. He was a Korean War vet who was involved in Military Police. I always felt a very strong connection to him, though I never really spent a great deal of time with him.

I'm a skeptic and I'll be the first to admit it, but these happenings have made me step back and wonder if psychic abilities do indeed exist. If I do have some sort of dormant ability, how would I go about developing it? Is this something that I've built up in my head or is there something here?

the process of developing psychic powers that has worked for me and which I teach my students is learning about the unseen energies that exist within all things. Start with learning about and experiencing the energies of herbs and plants (especially trees), then move on to the energies of rocks, gems and minerals, then insects/animals then the universe. When you can understand and embrace the existence of unseen energies you can open yourself up completely to the power of the Divine Spirit energy. It is at that point your power (s) will become their greatest.

Love and Light,

Hi Lin - no worries, I wasn't offended, just slightly puzzled by your statement which sounded more like something very categorical than an opinion... Also, and maybe I got this wrong, I just read another post of yours talking of past lives, so why is it that here you say there 'are no past lives'...?

Albator, Sorry if I offended you.
Perhaps I should have said, that MY belief system leads me to understand that karma does not exist.
There is an explanation to this theory, bit lengthy to type on here.
Sometimes I wonder if I just spend my life condensing things and making stuff concise so that people can understand... But I will attempt it and re post!

How can you state so categorically that reincarnation and kharma don't exist? That's being a bit obtuse, no?

i can sense when I'm going to meet someone or if they are near me, but the person has to be very special to me, it only ever happened with one of my best friends and the first guy I was in love with. I don't know how it works, but I get a feeling like when you go on a fairground ride, I get a bit giddy a few minutes before they appear. It works over a distance too.

Hey, I'm 16 and recently just found out the same thing you have pretty much... I am an empath and I can see things in dreams... I recently got oracle cards and have done reading on my friends that have been correct... I am religious altho not ultra... I believe in God and angels... I didn't believe in ANY of this until it started happening (about two weeks ago) and I started research on it for a class... I have daily angel guidance cards that help me out... I suggest you get them... I got them and I feel clearer. You also most likely are a healer... I think they kind of go hand in hand with being an empath I could be wrong but that's my opinion... I tried it out on my grandma when she had a migrain... I focused and asked guidance from my angels and I got the migrain but hers disappeared instantly... Altho she does not know lol I know what its like to be skeptical and its unfortunate I can't share my abilities knowingly with my family well e-mail me or whatever if you want to but thought I'd share my thoughts on it lol well good luck on everything! ~

I am a Christian too, but I believe in reinarnation. Just because you are a certain religion doesn't mean that it brands all those people as the same. Anyways, I experience a lot of the same things you do. Except with the teacher calling. When I concentrate like that, they look directly at me, and then call on someone else. I experienced a very weird thing 3 years back and I am trying to get the story up, but it'll take a while. I am pretty new to this stuff also, but I might be able to help you, so me so e-mail me!

Hey no worries, we're all friends here.

Thanks for the link. Looking back, I have really always had the characteristics of an empath, I just didn't realize it.

Sorry Nole,

The post I mislaid, and don't be scared.
As you said there are no past lives and DEFINATELY no karma! (same thing, figures!) need an explanation or do you know already?

No offence I have just come off a site which riled me a little, apologies!

Love etc Linx

Nole, you bewilder me!

I am a christian also, I attend High Church and eucharist each Sunday, they call it the smells and bells, I love it!

Heres the link... And you know what?

You can still be a christian, God (or whomever) won't punish you... Karma doesn't exist, and you're quite right neither do past lives!

The lives which "we" may have experienced in the past... Weren't ours, only somebody elses we had been asked to fill!

Did I forget the link?

Linx 😆

I looked up empath and found a great article on that was written by an empath. I was actually laughing to myself a little because the section titled "Traits of an Empath" described me almost to the letter.

Again, thanks for your insight. God bless.

I really apreciate your insight into my situation. However, I'm a Christian and I don't believe in past lives. Is it possible that my common Deja Vu experiences are not related to memories from a past life but rather memories of others who passed that way before me?

I'm new to the whole psychic thing but I'm trying to remain open to new ideas.

Hi Nole,
Everybody has some attachment to a psychic ability, it's only that we haven't remembered it yet that we don't understand or practise it fully.

That may sound a little out there or difficult to grasp. Although one explanation of why we experience de ja vous may explain what I mean.

One take on experiencing de ja vous is that when "we" were, in another incarnation we (as we were then- a different being to the one which you are today -) experienced something very similar/ the same/ or even were just at a similar place once upon a time. Your long term undying memory is triggered by the similarities and a little bit of remembering comes back which then fools the "now" you into thinking that you have done this before. You with me so far?

As I said, everyone has the ability to be psychic or indeed a medium, it is quite a lengthy process discovering how to remember what you already hold. It can be done and as you seem to be what is known as an empath I would start with following that development route.

Funnily enough I found a site today with a number of development exercises for the unknowing ie) undeveloped empath... Very interesting and simple reading... Better go find it again huh?
