Could I Have A Gift?


I am 16 years old. I've been really into supernatural and paranormal things for the past four years. I haven't really thought too much about my experiences, but when I finally did take the time to notice them, I thought that I might actually have some sort of psychic ability or gift.

Over the years, I've always had dreams. These dreams seem to always come true. I also have de-ja-vu a lot. Although, I know that this is not my true ability. My strength is reading people. I have always been very good with people, but now I notice that I can really read people. I can tell how someone is feeling, and I can even tell what exactly is wrong with them. Then I am really good with helping them solve their problems. This happens all the time. Even if I have not met the person before, I can usually tell everything about them. I can tell what has happened in their past, what they may be going through at the present moment, and I can read their personality and know how they are feeling. I can tell every little thing about a person. I am only wrong in some cases, but not often.

So could I have some kind of psychic ability or is it just all in my head? I would appreciate it if anyone could help me.

I'll admit a lot is self-taught, but it also involves meditating. The goal is to separate your own thoughts and feelings from those that your empathically picking up from someone else. Yes I do believe it is psychic ability, I am the same. I've difficulty separating what I'm feeling from someone else feelings that I'm picking up on. Now though, the other persons feelings act like a beacon to me and draws me too them. I can sense where they are, I wouldn't be able to point them in a crowd but if were in close proximity I usually end up hanging around them. Sometimes if the connection is strong enough the emotion I feel from them connects to certain memories and I'll get that, either in bits and pieces or in dreams or daydreams. Takes a little getting used to but it does get easier with practice. Hope this helps:)

It's the same with me, lahlahlah. I am very good at reading people's emotions and feelings. My abilities are in the early stage though, and I would like to know more about myself and how to strengthen my abilities, if I'm able to. 😊

you have empathic ability and perhaps psychic ability but you didn't tell us how often your dreams were right. 10%? 50%? 100%? How much? I dream a lot but the taco I had the day before does not make me a psychic. Teehee.

Love and Light

Lilshy thing and lahlahlah;
I think you are both soul-readers and can have precognitions, or premonitions (same thing)
Noy I don't know how to prefect these things. Maybe you could try by simply thinking what am I going to have fore breakfast tomorrow? And write it down, then check if you're right.
That could be a fun exercise, then if you get bored and better at that try harder things, like see what your going to do to get ready for work or school.
I hope I could help, best of luck for the 2 of you!

I want to aplogize to Lalahlahlah for posting my question under her Post. Like I said, I'm new here, and I still don't know where to post my comment!

I also have something close to what you have, I can read people... BUT, I know this is going to sound weird... But I can feel "evil" in people that are evil... Sounds weird, but it's true and it scares me sometimes when I come across someone who is truly, truly evil. It will literally make me sick to my stomach. I hope you find your answers here!

Hi, I'm new here. Just signed up today. I have a question that's been bothering me for pretty much my whole life.

Ever since I was a child (age 5 is my first memory) things came to me. I'm half German and half American. I call my german grandfather "Opa" and my american grandfather "Grampa."

When I was around 5, I was in Germany, and I was in bed. Around 10:00 pm my "Grampa" came to my bedroom door and said "Always remember that I love you, baby." In the morning when I woke up, I asked my parents where my Grampa was. They looked kind of confused, but then they then told me they had a call earlier in the morning saying my Grampa had died. Then, when I was in my late teens, I was in America, and I suddenly had an urge to write my Opa. I called my parents and asked for his address. I wrote my letter and was getting ready to send it, when my parents called me back and asked if I had sent the letter yet. I told them no, and they told me not to send it. When I asked why, they told me they just had received news that my Opa had died.

Other things happen to me. For one of many examples I could give, I was stuck in dead stop traffic for over an hour with a friend, and I told my friend, jokingly, "that's my husband up there, in the accident." An hour later, we pull up to the accident, and there my husband is waving his hands at me, flagging me to pull over. HE had caused the accident. This is just ONE instance of THOUSANDS that have happened to me.

My question, if I do have some sort of extra ability (and it seems I've had it ever since I can remember), is there any way I can learn to control this? To, perfect? (would that be the correct term?) this ability? I've wondered about this all my life, and was just curious.

Thanks for listening to me rattle on. 😕

That's happening to me too...
And I don't know what to do...
I wish that I could talk to someone but I think nobody's going to believe me...
It's horrible...

You seem to be an empathetic hun, well done!
You definitely have talent, you need to harness that ability!
Breaking down barriers, (skepticism, doubt etc)
Channeling your mind
Understanding your abilities

Good luck, just remember to meditate, meditate and meditate!

Your story reads like someone who is highly empathic. You probably know you "are" Empathicly gifted, but want to be validated yes? Hee hee I know what you mean about being able to "read" people. I try not to do it becase it kind of spooks them. I'm sure you know what I mean;)

Empaths cannot always read people...well, it depends. Do you mean "Reading people" as in knowing what is wrong with them, or just knowing things about them without much help? If it's the first one, then that is empathy. If it's the second one, that's soul-reading. Reply to us, this is a very interesting gift that a couple of us have.

I think your an empath like me because, with me It started out with "reading people" and being a good judge of character. Afterwards it got to knowing and feeling what they felt... And now I believe I have telepathy... Or I have always had it but I just noticed it. It is definitely not all in your head. I hope you are comforted by the thought that you are not alone in this. ❤ 😁 ❤

I agree that you have a gift. I've had similar experiences such as dreams coming true and feeling de-ja-vu. One way that I try to train my ability is I keep a dream journal. If I had a dream that came true the next day, I write about it. Quite often, I also can tell whether a person I meet is someone "good" or "bad", so to speak. Although, sometimes I am wrong. 😁

You could very well have a gift. That was how it started with me when I was 8, I could know how people were, what was wrong, and how to fix it. I'm now 13 and that has florished in to much greater abilities. I think that this will get stronger over time and you will greatly improve.

about 6 months ago, I had a whole wipe out of my life. I couldn't remember alott of the details of it. It was all just a dream it seems.
Now I'm almost 14 in a couple of weeks.
I have been having flashes of just pictures of things about to happen. I know something is wrong but now that I have seemed to see all of you on here its given me some sort of idea. If anyone could help me. I would like to make my ability stronger, if I have one?

This sounds so simular to me, and ill be 16 in a month. I don't know really where to start or what I am considered. I can pick up peoples emotions, espcialy family or close friends. All I get is a sudden feeling, that this is what someone in this direction is feeling and threw concentration or being fine tuned to the person because I know them well, I can pick out who it is. Also I used to be able to predict stuff but a lot less now. Now I can only, if at all sense a change that is going to happen in say five seconds. The ability weakened when I stopped having dreams last year. I'm very confused about the whole thing.
For some reason I'm a very hard person to lie to also. And like this person I can read people before I know who they even are, it usually starts when they stare at me or if I bump into them. And my prediction about what type of person they are is right 99% of the time.
If some ones in pain I can feel it or if someones angry or extremly sad or will be in the near future I can sense it (but I have yet to figure out the differnce between now or near future). I can fell pain in peoples past when they touch me and can tell how much they've been through in life so far.

And its not like how some people describe it as they just know things, this is different then that because I used to have that too but it faded away

Now I just feel it as if it was a extra sense not a extra knowledge, if that makes sense...

how do you know when what you're feeling is your empathy? Because I have something similar, I always know how people are feeling but I'm not sure whether that's just because I'm good at reading people. People always come to me with their problems too and I also tend to sort them out. I only know about peoples pasts when I really concentrate though. Also, is it possible to project emotions onto others? Because I think I might have done this a few times too

You are certainly an empath. I am an empath as well. Its a very nice gift, although I don't like being one sometimes as I feel other peoples pain (it's not fun). If you go to a crowd of people you can train your ability. Knowing how people feel is a true gift. I love being able to help my family and friends with their problems.
Hope I helped,

your not crazy. Your an empath. I'm one too. You can feel the emotions of people and you can learn to change the emotions of people to match your own. You just gotta go out in public and pratice it. That's how you can get your ability stronger 😁

I believe you do have a gift. When you meet someone new write down your thoughts about them, and see if you're right, to exercise your mind.

Funny, cause I can do the same thing. You might be some sort of a soul-reader. When I meet someone, I can tell exactly who they are and how they act, like seeing right through them.
