Real Psychic Experiences

From Parent To Child


I am currently eighteen years old and as far as I can tell, I am both physically and emotionally healthy. Also, I do not believe that I possess any notable psychic powers of any kind. However, this post is a combination of both a story and a question regarding hereditary psychic abilities, and I hope that those of you here may be able to help me in finding an answer.

When I was but a baby, my father's sister died of poor health. However, she was a very kind person according to my father. Following her death, my father experienced a number of moments where he claims to have witnessed "seeing" her. The one that sticks out the most is an incident late at night where he awoke to use the bathroom. Upon returning to the bedroom, he felt a need to turn his head and look down the hallway leading to my room, which at the time had an open door so as to alert my parents if I began to cry. When my dad looked down the hallway, he saw the white silhouette of his sister in my completely black room. She was leaning over my crib and appeared to be watching me. But then she raised her head and looked to my father. Her face was contorted; cruel and streaked, with glowing red eyes. My father was very frightened of this apparition and recalls feeling an evil presence coming from it.

My father is not psychic as far as I know, and nor am I. But throughout my eighteen years of life, there have been moments where strange things have occurred that I cannot fully explain. As a young child, I had many cases of deja vu, often within the span of a couple weeks apart. I was also plagued by a reoccurring dream that would alter in environment, but remain constant in threat. By "threat" I refer to an ominous, body less voice that would always remain behind me. I could never turn to confront it, but it would speak in such a way that I would be paralyzed with fear. I cannot recall what it would say, but it was of cruel intent.

I am well aware that children are often susceptible to overactive imaginations, which is why I am hesitant to claim that these early experiences were of any significance, but I felt they were worth mentioning. In later years my deja vu has been much less frequent, and rarely do I even experience it anymore. The reoccurring dream has also passed into history now (I believe it stopped around age ten or eleven). I have had nothing peculiar happen to me within the past few years that I can directly recall.

My question now is whether or not psychic abilities may be passed on genetically, or if it is something developed independently of one's genetics? I have little hope of possessing psychic abilities myself as I suspect they would have manifested themselves by now. It seems to me that what my father experienced was simply an intense bout of emotional stress and fatigue after losing his sister, and what I have experienced is simply the brilliance and paranoia of the overactive imagination of a child. If it were possible to develop psychic abilities, then I would very much like to learn how this would be done as there are certain elements of my life that I feel could be better explained if I were able to approach them through different means. Yet if such cannot be obtained then I shall make nothing of it.

What are your thoughts on this matter?

Everyone on my father's side of the family has it, and it goes back at least as far as my great-grandmother. My 9yo son has shown some abilities as well, so he makes the fifth generation (that we know of). Although my first experience was at two years old, it was never, ever talked about. I was raised by my grandparents, and there were always all kinds of crazy paranormal and psychic things going on, but again, it was just accepted and never spoken of. It wasn't until my late 20s that my aunt (my father's sister) filled me in. My great-grandmother was a psychic healer from Ireland, and one of her daughters, my great-aunt, could also heal. Many years ago my aunt and I visited some cousins in another state and began talking about our experiences. Here we had cousins in their 50s and 60s who had NO idea that the things they had been experiencing their whole lives were actually attributed to the gift that has been passed down! I'm 41 and still learning. I only recently learned that no, I DON'T have a neurological disorder as I had thought; I in fact experience earthquakes a day before they occur. It's pretty funny when I am out in public and knocked off my feet by a quake, but see that everyone else is just going about their business! Like MrMedium said, it is possible that you are suppressing your abilities. Many times I blow something off, only to later realize it was a psychic thing... Because sometimes having this gift bothers me and I try not to think about it!

CJFuller90... I have known people who are psychic and no one in their famlies are. And also psychics who come a long line of psychics. I tend to believe that it is a personal thing that people could accept or reject based on a whole slew of circumstances.

I suppose that is true, but given that she has never demonstrated anything (to my knowledge) that would suggest psychic abilities, I simply remain skeptical as to her prowess. And as for myself, if I were able to connect with them as a child then why has that ability faded over time? It seems to me that such an ability would not diminish unless actively suppressed, and I do not believe anything in the past years would have served as a suppressant (for the record, I do not drink or use drugs). But if my abilities were suppressed, how would I go about reviving them?

Psychic and mediumistic abilities do run in families. As for not thinking your mother has psychic abilities just because she doesn't believe in the paranormal doesn't mean anything my mother doesn't think she or anyone in our family have the gifts we do but my abilities came from her side of the family my aunt is a medium and my other aunt, sister, and grandmother all have some psychic ability they choose not to develop my sister just says he gets these feelings. About you not thinking you have any psychic abilities, my thoughts are that you were connect to them as a child but because you haven't tried to develop them they have just been suppressed... I can not guaranty that is right just my opinion.
