Longing To Be Part Of A Different Kind Of Family


My name is Chris, I'm 17 a senior in high school and this is my story.

Ever since I was young I believed in the paranormal and psychic abilities. I was drawn to them, I always have trusted in mind over matter. However my parents are a little different, they do not believe in such things.

About the age of 8 I would feel presences in my room and I had at one point moved something on my dresser without touching it, but I quickly stopped all that because I didn't want my parents to think I was crazy and send me to a "special" doctor.

Time went on and I moved into the 7th and 8th grade. By this time I knew for a fact I was different. I was confused I could walk up to a person and see that obliviously they are mad or sad, etc. But when I would ask what was wrong they would give me this confused stare. And my emotions started to send me into a spiral. I could not stand losing control of my emotions. I always like to be in control of my body. So I ignorantly decided to build a "mental wall" between my emotions and me. I was so proud because it worked very well, I would not be influenced by other anymore instead I kept everything held in and was able to let it out on my time. But I could still feel all the emotions around me just not as intensively.

Since I have entered high school things change the feelings got stronger and the dreams came true (I would have dreams all the time as a kid) living a dream was a normal occurrence for me now. I could feel the energy around me around everything. I didn't know what to do so about a year ago I decided to do a little experimenting and research. And this is why I am here now, I can feel the energies writhing all things. I can feel emotions and thoughts but I cannot embody those emotions like I was able to (I will with intense ones), and just recently I have regained the ability to detect some spiritual presences. I come to you for answers, advice, tips, and comforting. I would like to hone my abilities and undo the damaged I caused as a kid by blocking them. I have been able to strengthen my abilities with some meditation and practice.

Lately, I have had an unbearable longing to be with people like me who can understand me. My family doesn't and I cannot talk with them about this, my girlfriend accepts it, she believes me but she doesn't understand, she can't really. I am the only one in my family and friends like this, I need a place to be me, a place to be with those who can give me a place where I can belong. My Genetic family cannot give me this I hope I can find it here.

I have read many stories here and I have found some comfort and felt it was time for me to tell my own. Is this empathic, telepathic, or clairsentients I am not sure. I deeply appreciate any and all advice. Thank you

I guess I'm kind of lucky. My mom doesn't think I'm a fruitcake or a nut when I tell her about the things that happen to me. My mom's friend is psychic and she became my friend and helps me whenever I need help. She connects with me and she told me how my room was arranged and where everything was and what was in the floor. I suggest that you somehow find a good person to talk to about your abilities. It feels so much better than just holding it in. If you want I can give you my email and you can tell me if anything happens.

Hey Chris, where are you? We haven't heard from you in like...forever...=/ It makes us think you totally forgot about your disconnected and super disfunctional, freaky but loving family that you have in us. Anyways, maybe we've been not annoying you enough too. Get back to us sometime, we have a gift for you.

Lovess youu; Val & Amzi.

I feel your pain!
Sometimes I daydream about
There being a place built for people
Like us. Wouldn't that be cool? But
Everytime I see it in my head I imagine
Something like the x-men. Lol
But still it would be cool if there was a place like that huh? 😕 😜

I'm in the 7th grade and in the same boat as you were, and I understand how hard it can be to feel so cut off from who you are.
I'm sorry I don't have any advice but I thought it might help to hear from a kindered spirit.

Hey Chris
I know how you feel. My gifts constantly overwhelm me and I'm learning to build walls around myself. My family is HIGHLY skeptic of any kind of pyschic ability, and I am afraid of telling them why I am so constantly upset without cause. It's hard sometimes but we work through it. It's good you reached out. There's so many people here that know a lot more than I do so they could help you more than I can but if you ever need someone to talk to I'm here.

Hey Chris;

Welcome to the family. These people I am very keen to. There are the amazing wise older people who correct me, the younger generation that has the same problems as me and are a comfort because they are around my age, and the younger ones to help and feel their innocence and wonderfulness. Age does not matter much here anyway. Feel free to come by the chat-room any time!

-Love and understanding, Val [3rd Vendetta]

rarely do psychics live together but when they do- katie bar the door! Cassadega florida where I am from (no not living there but visiting there often) they come together in peace and safety. They congregate their energy and spirits come.

Love and Light

I get where you are coming from, and it's natural for some not to except the fact. I can tell you now that your abilites are kind of combinied. (You have more then one ability.) The feeling bit is empathetic, and you may have clairsentients/clairvoyance, which is a possibility, but the empathetic is something to be sure of. (My friend is one) but if you ever need help or want someone to talk to just to escape...yeah...sorry blabbering. Anyway, if you need help, just give a ring.Anyway, welcome abord and the best of luck. Hopefully, you will find the "family" you are looking for.

Hi Chris - it seems like your wish has been granted. If I can say one thing though that may differ from the rest, despite your family may not understand, or listen, they are your family and I am sure your parents love you regardless of. They are only human and therefore not perfect, so I hope that you are just longing for some new friends who will believe, listen & share, and not really for a different family, that would be a shame, and probably make them sad if they knew (unless they're really horrible people that is 😉).
Welcome aboard.

Hey Chris,
Unlike you I have people to go to. My father, two of my three uncles, my grandmother, and my cousins. We all have psychic abilities. My uncles own their own churches. I wouldn't put it as churches but they heal people and have a church there. They know tons of spiritual guidance tips.

Your not alone Chris you certainly had a gift. Its ok to understand why you'd block it out to not worry your parents.
I pretty much just tried to hide mine.
But your definitely empathic since you have to create a "mental wall" to block all the emotions around you. You must have a really high power of it too to have to need a "mental wall" and be able to sense their thoughts with the emotions. Also you seem to be psychic in some way since your dreams come true.
Best to do is to do some research. That way you can really know how many abilities you have.
But if you ever have trouble discovering a ability you don't understand and can't find in a book you can always contact me. I might be able to help you find out what it is.

Hi Chris

You have an amazing gift, don't lose it. Focus on it regularly and keep a journal of your dreams and experiences. For a long time I blocked out my own abilities, much like your own, and am now starting to get them back.

The best way to advance your abilities is to know what you're dealing with. I am learning what I am dealing with by reading as much information as I can about time, the universe, psychic awareness, and the occult - all of which deeply tie into each other. Any power that we can display comes from a strong intention.

If you ever want to chat about your abilities and your experiences please let me know I'm looking to learn a bit more myself and I think we all need to help each other - like a family.

You're parents will never understand you. They can't relate to you so it causes tension.

Luckily enough for me my mom has the same gift and doesn't think I'm crazy. For the longest time my best friend did, There's a lot of straight minded people in the world, Who have their own opinions and views. If you have at least one person who believes you and understands its better then no one.

Not many people have psychic abilities, There might seem like there's many on here but when you think about it and the number of people in the world and you put us all together there's not that many. So don't feel so misunderstood and no one can relate to you because I'm sure in you're current place of living there isn't any.

The point of the matter is, There are people out there that do have the same thing currently happening in their lives. So you're not alone.

I myself just like you can since the presence of spirits around me, But I've never been able to put up an emotional wall such as yourself and block it out. I can be minding my own business and all the sudden a switch will flip and I start sensing things.

So you're lucky if you can block it out. I wouldn't know what to categorise you as but I'd say you're psychic.

Even though your family dislikes the path that live on, these obstacles will only make you stronger later on. The stronger the resistance, the greater the persistence. I found other Pyschic in my area by creating a psi ball at a location where several people pass by, and made it so that it could identify a Pyschic if they walked near the Psi Ball and to identify who they were. (things as their name and such)
