I'm would say that I'm not psychic. After reading some of the things that people have sent in I feel a little intimidated. My mom has had psychic experiences and my best friend Tony is what I would call psychic. Though neither one thinks they are.
I'm nothing like them, but I have a few things that I'm curious to know about. Maybe I'm slightly psychic or maybe I'm somehow just tapping into some part of my brain and looking at pictures and feeling things from my imagination or dreams or something.
When I was in the army I was in a combat zone for a year or so. Being in that situation kind of takes you "out of your head". It opens things in you that you may not notice other wise. I guess because you're introduced to thing that are of this world that you hadn't realized were a part of this world, no mater how prepared you are.
I noticed something that I think all people must do but don't realize it. I've tried to develop it a little because I always thought it was kind of cool. I have little flashes of what I think are other peoples lives. I kind of get an impression of what some person's thoughts and feelings are like. Not someone I know or see or anything like that but just kind of like an idea of what someone else life is like just kind of floats by and gets stuck in my brain for a second or less and I feel like I know what this person feels and something about their life. Not exactly like their feelings or thoughts but just kind of what it's like to be them for a moment in time. Just some mundane life thing. Not something useful but I find it's kind of interesting. This may or may not relate to this next part.
This other thing is kind of weird and what I would like to know if anyone else has like experiences.
Awhile back I lay on the floor of the living room watching football upside down. I must have done this for an hour maybe, the game finished and I closed my eyes. I saw a woman's face, she changed from a blond to a brunette then faded. (Yea I know a lot of women change from blond to brunette, that's not the cool part). Next I saw a guy, Native American I think with a long black pony tail. He was on a college campus in front of a door to a big concrete triangular building, the door being in one rounded point of the triangle. He was wearing blue jeans and one of those brown corduroy jackets that were so popular in the early 70's. Cowboy boots I think and books or a briefcase. Next I saw a women face, different than the one before. I brought it up close and turned it a little to get a better look. Then it faded. These were actually there like I was watching TV, or more like sitting in a theater. I have been trying to do more of the same and have done some.
I saw a girl standing in line in an airport in an expensive black and white checked heavy skirt (wool?) and a black sued coat with a portfolio of (I think) her art work in her hand, then I think I was in her home standing behind her. She was sitting in an old fashion rocking chair and when she looked back over her shoulder we made eye contact with our right side eyes. I felt that little electric shock that sometimes comes with a look or touch. That shocked me out of what I was seeing. This one was pretty clear but not as clear as the first ones. Often now I get kind of the same thing but they are more impression and not so visual a thing. Not as cool.
At first I would see faces and people and symbols when I was meditating, when I was going to bed or laying in bed in the morning. I would kind of focus my eyes at about 5' with my eyes closed and try to see nothing in particular. About the time I would start to lose focus I might see something. Usually a dark haired women. Different ones. One time I tried to bring an older Indian lady's face in closer to get a better look and her face jumped of her body and into my face and scared me. More like startled me I guess. I thought "she did that on purpose" then felt kind of foolish. Like I do now writing this stuff down.
I was reading Kenneth Meadows book "Shamanic Experience" and doing some of the breathing and visualizing exercises when this first happened and doing a lot of walking in the snow with my dogs also. (Being out in the woods walking to keep my legs in shape and filling my mind with the wonders and love of nature is important to me and helps keep my mind in the right place.) Then I got to working a lot of hours, not eating right, smoking a few inorganic cigarettes (I seem to be allergic to the chemicals in regular ones) and now what I see is not like looking at a photograph but just kind of an impression. The other morning I was laying in bed half asleep and did see the tops of some trees that were very clear.
This has been kind of a fun experience and a little frustrating.
A couple nights ago though I did something that was a little freaky. I had been thinking I was going to see something as I was laying there and fell asleep. I woke up a half hour later with the idea that I was talking to a girl. I don't know if my eyes were open or closed or if I was dreaming in a kind of lucid situation or not. I looked to my right and a guys face was looking at me up close. He was good looking, from an inner-city type environment and there was the light of insanity his eyes. He though I was trying to make a move on his girl and he said "Back off, Cremarian", or something weird like that. This seemed like a different kind of experience than the other and kind of freaked me out and stuck with me. Maybe it was just a dream.
I don't really see these things as something that is going to give me any ability to help people like Tony does or give me different experiences or see a past life like my mom has had a few times. So I don't think I'm developing any psychic talents that are anything useful. I may just be tapping into my dream world in a different way than normal although I actually think it's something else. I just don't know what and I'd like to know more.
I would like to know if anyone else has similar experiences. Many years ago I had a similar but different experience when I first got high smoking pot, but didn't include that here because I thought it might be inappropriate.
Maybe something else will come of this but for now I'm mostly just curious I guess.
I tried to look up cremarian, it looks like another word for a place where dead bodies are burnt. Never heard that word before, maybe the dream head meant someone who burns bodies or is an undertaker. A nice insult I guess.
So anybody else out there seeing people like this for no particular reason?
I also sometimes see other things like symbols and cartoons and some freaky stuff that are just vague memories or something. Just vague impressions. I get the impression they're on different levels but this is all guess work. It's the people's faces that have been the real seeming thing.
Thank you any responders.
