Do I Really Have Psychic Gifts?


When I was a child I regularly had occurrences that I felt indicated I had a psychic ability. These things happened so much so that my father and mother were convinced I had a gift, to the point that my father had designed a word with my grandfather on his deathbead that I would say at some point in my life to confirm life after death. Thus far this had not happened and I find it very frustrating. Following are some examples of what I have experienced over the years, primarily as a child and a young girl.

We were driving home on a winter day from a family member's house (prior to the seatbelt law) and as we drove I became increasingly agitated with the feeling that we were going to have an accident. As the feeling grew, I decided I was going to fasten my seatbelt, something we never wore. Within minutes of having done so we were hit by a drunken driver who had run the stop sign. I was the only one who had buckled up and therefore suffered no injuries as a result.

Another experience I had involved my best friend. I experienced a dream that had numerous symbols in it and for some reason the symbols signified the death of my best friend. When I awoke, I was certain that she had died, so certain that when I was sitting outside talking with my grandmother that morning she brought up the fact that she had read in the paper that morning about a friend of mine who had died. I instantly blurted out the name of my friend and repeatedly said that I knew it was her. She couldn't recall the name of the person, but told me to wait while she looked it up. When she came to it, she confirmed that what I had said was right.

Another time and another close friend later, it was prom night and we were driving past the scene of a very significant accident. As we were passing it I knew unquestioningly that it was one of my friends (the vehicle was not one that I recognized) who I regularly walked to school with that was in the vehicle and that she had died. I verbalized this to the friends I was with and was so upset they could hardly calm me down. I had to stifle my upset because I think I was really starting to frighten them, that and I think they thought I was a little nuts.

I've had other instances much less significant, such as dreaming of individuals who I hadn't seen in years, only to see the following day or within the week.

I've also had experiences of seeing spirits both in full static form or just as shadows out of the corners of my eyes.

I am also rather successful in predicting the sex of a child prior to its birth. I know this seems kind of cheesy, but it always amazes me at how accurate I always am.

I have also always been exceptionally intuitive when it comes to people and what they are thinking and feeling and just in judging them. My husband now is well aware that I have some unique occurrances and he will tease me that I need to come up with the lottery numbers. Of course I don't think this is how it works.

One of the more recent things I started to experience (though very infrequently) are visions of things about to happen while I am awake. One of these instances occurred while my husband and I were driving and he was smoking a cigarette. A vision flashed in my mind of the cigarette being flung out the window only to land in the back seat. When he finally did fling his cigarette out, it did indeed end up in the back seat just as I had envisioned.

So given all of this and so many other things I have had happen over the years, I guess my question is, is it really a gift or mere coincidence, and if it is, why does it seem to be fading as I get older? I would really like to tap into it more if this truly is psychic ability, but yet, I am frightened at the same time of what I might see or feel or know.

So dreams that come true that's also very amazing but maybe you can find more about your ability through the use of books to from the sites store that can help you.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. Part of me is still frightened of letting myself open to "see" as much as I can. I like the novelty of knowing the good things, it's the bad things I don't want to see, especially if there is nothing I can do to prevent them. Perhaps that's the reason why I have more limitations now with it than I did when I was younger. I have two young children and the thought of envisioning something terrible happening to them that I can't prevent scares me more than anything else.

On another note, I've recently been having very bizarre and vivid dreams. Not sure what to make of them at this point because nothing has yet come true... Probably a good thing too, because they haven't been good. I dreamt of a gas tanker truck overturning on one of our local highways and it exploded. I tend to take my dreams very seriously because in addition to the one I mentioned above, I had one of a family relative having a heartattack and being found dead in his bed. Part of that dream did come true, but it wasn't until two years after I had the dream. He did indeed have a heartattack but did not die (thank God!)

So anyway, thanks again! Any suggestions for the fear factor involved with these feelings/dreams? Is it possible to tune yourself to have the dreams far enough in advance to prevent or redirect the events that could potentially take place?

oh yes, you are very gifted. Lucky for you, I haven't told my parents yet. I'm sort of afraid that theyll think I'm just stupid or making it up to get attention...

I don't know if I'm crazy, but if I do have something special I just don't want to loose.

I need some help I don't know if anyone can help but it doesn't hurt to try 😆. When I was a child maybe around three my father had died. Several mounths later my mom had found me playing video games for the first time and she had told me that I was winning every game that I had played on the super nintendo she believed that I was communicating with my desease father. My first memories are that of me being able to levatate. For example I have a memory of me running across the living room hall and when I jumped it was like I was levatating for a while until I touched ground again. Ever since then I was really lonley and I use to talk with the wind. Then I had discovered that I can minipulate the wind with will. As I got older I started getting massive de ja vu. Like for example while I'm sleeping I'd see like an image but more like a flash. Then like several days later I'd see that same image. But that hasnt happened in a long time. Since then I'd never really questioned anything until latley. Weird things started happining since I moved into a new house. One day I saw a shadow appear in my room. The lgihts were off and I swore I saw something move like lightning fast. Then after a while I started getting feelings. Like the things that I would talk about or do would become related to something the next day. Then sometimes as off latley when ever I touched someone or something metalic whenever I'm in a good mood I would get electricuted. I don't know if I hve abilites or not. When I took the psychic test it said I was average. But to me it feels like everything that I experience or do is shifting dramatically. I get really tired of it. But I trully do think that it would have to do something with my emotions. I just need some guidence. Also I am able to empathize with people to a deep level where I can never side between people becuase I can understnd things and people like as if they were an open book. Sometime people would get mad at me about them but its like I cn connect with them in ways other people cant. And also at time I enter what my mom calls my zombie state where I'm here but not really there. Like I can do what I was doing but its like I'm opening up to my surroundings in a deep way, but like I said these things choose when they work, and I'm not even sure what you would call them. So if anyone can help me I'll gladly enjoy it.

Thanks for reading and putting up with my horrible grammer, lol.

Hi like you as I grew older my psychic ability started to decrease. I let the stress of work and raising a family get in the way of my daily meditation. I normally did when my ablilities were at their strongest. On occassion I con't to get dreams of things that are happening or going to happen with my family members. I especially have a strong connection with my sister in law, whom I don't get to talk to often but will 99% of the time pop into my dreams when something is going on in her life. She thinks its funny but she won't admit to the connection but knows what I dream about is true. I was reading that meditation is a way to continue to develop pyschic abilities so I am starting to meditate again. Let me know if this helps you and I let you know if it helps me. Good luck

I feel that what I experience is fading as well. I'm only 15 but I can't feel stuff like I used to could. So, I'm going to start meditating. I've read in a lot of comments that it helps so I'll share that with ya... And I'm also frightenend by what I might see, feel, or know - so you're not alone. 😊

This sounds like you have some sort of psychic ability. I'm pretty sure its called clairvoyance when you can see the future.
