Real Psychic Experiences

Dreams, Shadows, Energies And Unsure


I am 14 and have been having experiences most of my life. I have dreams that have always occurred sometimes soon after I have them. They are pretty accurate most of the time, which led me to believe I may be psychic, but I've always been unsure of it. I had a dream about my brother and his life being in jeopardy, and in turn I ended up saving him. The dream was very vivid and stuck in my mind, and as soon as I saw it occur in real life I saw that I had had a foreseeing.

Recently I have been seeing this black shadow-like figure outside my home. When I first saw it, it was about 15 feet from my back patio. I saw it out of the corner of my eye and it disappeared when I turned my head to get a better look. It seemed to be a boy or man, but the figure was too mist-like to tell for sure. Now it has been flitting past my window, and I believe I saw it in the mirror too. I'm not sure if it means it is getting closer, or it is a warning of something. My house is not old and no one (in my knowledge) has died here.

Another thing I have seen I'm able to do is reading people. I can sometimes immediately tell someone's emotion or mood by the energy they give off or I receive. I can sometimes tell how their feeling or what is bothering them by looking into their eyes, and I get a heavy feeling in my chest if it is negative. Same goes if I walk into a certain room or place, I can feel if it has a certain energy sometimes. This ability has been on/off for awhile

I have told my 3 closest friends about this, and 2 of them have the same abilities I do, but different.

I'm not sure what to do about the black figure or if I am indeed psychic, opinions? They would be greatly appreciated =D

Oh my goodness, same for me. I live in PA too... Anyway, I have all the same things as you, only with the shadows I don't see them in or around my home, except a few times and they were animals. I also have dreams, weird, huh?... Good Luck-

the shadow, if he's not giving off bad vibs, then he may be there to look after you. When I first saw the shadows they scared me but not anymore. Try talking to him, you may find out why he's there

Sometimes I see frightening things too. I often dream about when people are going to die and the first night I moved into my new house I saw this glowing ball of energy... I really don't know how to describe it. But it scared the heck out of me and it's been kind of hard to sleep there since.

One thing that realy helps for me is there have been many events with people around. Most times I had several people with me mostly cool people, down to earth regualr people, me and my two brothers who were 11 months younger than me had a huge number of friends, and a decent size group that were always hang arounds.

Me and my bro chris, and many of our friends have had things happen. My house was evil haunted, scott our closest friend was haunted himself. Every where he lived and many places he went. Even some realy extreme horrific things like a few I have had. We also knew many people who had seen things one their own, mostly one the west side where we lived. Many have seen shadow people. After living in that demonic house where it all started and stange things happened. I found I was having the same problem. And not just me. Formaly sceptic friends. Several formerly sceptic girlfriends would also experience most of the same things I would, I thought it was just the house, but I think now I bring them out. This may be a problem for others who see them. 14 is young, this won't be the first.

Finaly my other bro who never had anything happen to him all this time finaly did. And my dad. They were out at my parents working an at different times they heard talking and then some one called their name right in their ear. Thats helps me because I and many x girl friends have had that. I still do. Now they can't say I'm nuts for hearing it. BUT WE have all heard weird things out their, strange stuff, and these two guys are NOT the belivers of things. Maybe a little now Out there we have seen blue flashes at night from the trees, My girlfriends is scared to death of it all. Sometimes "brace yourself I know this sounds crazy but its real and its true"I even hear huge god like voices, I realy hate to term it but I can't define it any better, big powerfull, non like in my head but echoing from down the river or else where just like loud sounds usualy echo. I can't make out what there saying, its muffled and weird. As soon as someone ele heres that Ill feel better.

Hi, I'm leo, I'm 28. I can read people well, too. Plus I have future dreams here and there. Very acurate. Forr me it all stared with gjost and other scarier things. The black shadow isn't from your mind as another has said. I have dealt with this kind of thing around or over a hundred times inmy life. Hes there. Just don't let it freak you out, don't let anything freak you out. Dont ever break down emotionaly, and if your in trouble just prey. I know its hard for you t believe but there is good, and god. I don't meen to sound all bible banger. I'm not the type. Actualy I'm a heavy metal guitarist. But bevlive me whenI say there is good and evil. I don't know what these types of spirits want but they always tend to show up and stalk people with abilities. After years many former skeptic people, friends, fam, others now have no doubt that these things are real and I'm a freak.

We are also the same shattedmemory. I also am also an empath. And also our fellow friends here is correct. We should not communicate with them for we don't know if it is either good or bad. If you see one again look at it but do not communicate with it. Even if it cries for help. You know bad spirits is good at disguising and copying a certain person's identity and sound. If you see one build a psychic shield so he won't harm you easily and mix it with a simple prayer to god. Nothing is powerfull than our lord god. My god christ

Hi Shattered memory,
My head fels a little like that this morning, I stayed up way too late last night!

I think the shadowy figure you are seeing is a manifestation of something negative within you. I think that it seems to be developing because your talents/ abilities are.

What I mean is, your initial "wake up " was realising you were having these "empathic" feelings, vulpes is quite right, the "pressure" on your chest is indicative of this. However, now that you have noticed them, and started to learn more about them, the shadow thing is growing too.

This pinpints to me, that the underlying negativity which you hold has something to do with not being able to speak about these occurences/ your developing talents/abilities or to tell anybody about what you are experiencing within this psychic field, in my opinion.

I think as you are able to be more open with what you are experiencing (and I obviously don't mean go running down the street, shouting..." you are sad, you are grumpy, you are happy" etc etc, to startled passers by!) but by confiding in somebody, or even perhaps it could be as simple as BELEIVING and CONFIDING in YOURSELF... Then you will start to see these shadows disapear.

Have a look at some gem stones, or begin a daily practise of some form of protecion technique which you feel suits you, this will be a "grounding" for you, and once you have established a protection principle, which YOU trust. You can embark upon a fantastic journey of discovery, with the black shadowy things dispelled.

Beleive completely in yourself and your feelings, that's all you need to do, go find your anchor though too!

Linx ❤

I had the same type of black figures following me around for about a year, they eventually just went away when I started to ignore them instead of trying to figure out what they were.
Aphrodite, sounds like a good movie!

I am currently writing a movie on these black figures you are talking about - it is a fictional movie but I still need to do research, and it seems very common for these figures to leave your line of vision before you can completely see them. Corner of the eye figures! Thank you for writing!

Well, you seem like your an empath, like me. Picking up on others emotions is a psychic ability. And the shadow thing...idk, ghost's can show up in new houses as well as old. I agree with Vulpes on this, don't make direct contact with it. My opinion would be to observe it for a while and see how it acts just to get a better understanding of what it might want.

Well xshatteredxmemoryx, it seems that you have a real mixed bag of things going on don't it?

Firstly, the ability to foresee the future through dreams is called precognition, and it is surprisingly common, even occurring occasionally in otherwise 'non gifted' people. A large event, such as september 11, will have multiple precognitions all over the local, or indeed global area while a smaller, personal event might only be foreseen by one of those who will be directly involved in the event. It's nothing to be concerned about, and can even be useful.

Secondly, the ability to read people might fall under a few different headings, but my gut instinct on how you described it is that you are an empath, gifted or cursed, depending on how you see it, with the ability to feel others emotions, even when you don't want to. It can get a little heavy at times, I should know as my main ability is empathy, but there are ways to block the other emotions out and info on this is easily available both on this website and elsewhere online.

Lastly, the shadow could be a number of things, but my advice is not to make contact with it directly, and not to invite it into your living space. The spirits of the dead come in three distinct flavours, positive, negative and neutral, just like the living, breathing people they used to be, and they are not always honest or kind, despite what some people will tell you. Plus there are other things out there too, shadow people and low level so called 'demonic' entities for example, which fit your description, and which you should not be interacting with until you have a deeper understanding of your abilities.

The internet is definitely your friend on all this though. While I wouldn't believe everything I read online, doing a websearch for some of the things that I mentioned here and acquiring some general background knowledge can only help, and once you are comfortable with your gifts, then some work on psychic/magickal self defence should be your next step.
