My name is Maggie and I'm 14 years old. I have had a certain experience that makes me wonder is anyone else has had an experience like it. If anyone has had en experience like it I would be very grateful if you could help me. I'm mostly wondering how to deal with this ability.
My experiences are all very similar. I can sometimes sense things about people. Mostly when I first met them but it sometimes happens with people I have known for awhile. For example once my friend Bailey and I were talking. By this time I had only known her for a few months. We were talking about names. We were playing a little game were you have to pick a new name for them except for there actual name. I was picking one for her when I suddenly got the name Caitlyn in my head. I just blurted it out and she looked at me with wide eyes. She stared at me and told me that Caitlyn was what her mother was going to name her right up until the time she was born then changed her mind suddenly. I did the exact same thing with her two sisters as well. I got Laura and Ella and they were both dead on as names that there mother had loved but decide against later. I really didn't think too much of this at first but then experiences like that happened more and more.
Another time was in the summer I went to my friend's house for a sleepover. I hadn't seen her in months the only time I talk to her was a week before when we planed to get together. About 10 minutes before getting to her house I got this feeling that she was extremely sad. I had a feeling that whatever it was it had just happened. I got kind of scared but tried not to think about it to much. When I finally got her house she was crying. When I asked her what was wrong she said that her grandfather had just past away. I was frozen with shock but I had to ask when he had died. She looks up at me and said that she got the call about 10 minutes ago. I couldn't believe it but didn't want to freak her out in her time of need so I shut my mouth and comforted her.
My first experience with someone I just met was at a party I went to. I was with a bunch of my friends when my boyfriend came in with another guy that I never met before. He walked over to me and introduced his cousin Tyler to everyone. When he introduced him to me he said that he had heard a lot about me and that it was nice to finally meet me. After shaking his hand and talking to him for a second I got one of my feelings. I felt that there was great joy in his life right now and that something important was happening in him family tomorrow. When I asked him about it he looked at me kind of funny and said that his sister just got back from being at school for 2 months and that tomorrow his cousin was getting married and he was in the wedding. Once again I was surprised that I was correct.
These experiences have been going on for awhile and now it doesn't surprise me when I'm right anymore. But if I come out and tell people about the feelings I get they look at me weird, get scared or just get really surprised. After awhile I just started to keep my mouth shut about the feeling I get about people. Sometimes if the person needs help I try to work it into a conversation without them knowing sometimes they still get scared out.
If anyone has any advice for me about how to deal with this I would love to hear it. I would also appreciate if anyone who has had the same experience would let me know that they have that would be great. I have never heard of anyone else with this ability so knowing that there's someone else out there like me would make me feel much better.
