Real Psychic Experiences

The Talking Picture


I've had several experiences in my life that some might classify as psychic, most come to me while I'm asleep but a few actually come to me as "visions" while I'm wide awake, the following story is one of the latter.

A few years ago while on the job performing some routine I.T. Functions on a customer's laptop I was sitting at his desk waiting for a process to complete when I noticed the one and only picture on his desk. It was of a young woman I'd never met and I assumed it was his wife. I asked him about the picture and he confirmed it was his wife but he didn't reveal her name, he's a very private and unassuming man. As I looked at the picture I felt as if it was speaking to me, telling me a story if you will. I started to ask my client some questions and he was amazed at what I could tell just by looking at her picture.

The first thing that came to me was her name was Jill, which the client confirmed. I also asked if her appearance was different now and he said the photo was almost two years old and that she had changed her appearance slightly. I then asked if she was pregnant now and in a hushed voice he admitted she was and that they just found out a few weeks ago but were keeping it quiet. I told him that she was going to have a girl and even though it was too early to tell a few months later he went public in the office with the announcement that he and his wife were expecting a baby girl.

Unfortunately, for the remainder of my time in that office he avoided me. I can only guess it's because I could tell so much about his personal life with just a viewing of a picture. I've noticed people treat you differently once you decide to share a "vision" with them. Some are apprehensive toward you while other are into avoidance.

The experience of looking at someone's picture and "hearing" their story is not new to me. As a youth I could look at the picture of a missing person and tell you if they were alive or dead. I still do that with missing persons in the newspaper and while it takes time for a result I've not been wrong yet, of course, the jury is still out on a few people.

My client and his wife and daughter are currently happy and healthy and he has moved on to another assignment as have I.

this ability is known as psychometry- being able to gain intuitive impressions by touching or even just being in close proximity to an object.

Before I start relating a psychic message to a stranger, which might offend or upset them, I ask them how they feel about intuition or psychic abilities. If they respond in a negative manner I keep the info to myself- if they are receptive I venture further and relate to them the "feelings" I am having. Some people do not take kindly to psychics and might attempt to harm them in some way- possibly by discrediting them with their employer. Some people may not want to know what a psychic senses at all. Others, as yve72 pointed out, will want you to do a reading for them.

Love and light

Wow! What a great ability you have. I think the thought of someone not knowing you and you being able to tell him so much is a shock-people are afraid of the unknown or unexplained to them. I would agree to use discretion on whom you tell, people are getting odder now a days. 😁

Thank you all for helping me to feel "normal", I've not felt that in a very long time. My abilities disturb even my family when I was growing up and I was encouraged to hide this gift and never to speak of it out loud. My real success has been in dream visions so I'll try to post one or two of those experiences soon.

Again, thank you for the kind words.

I too am able to sense things about peoples lives by looking at photos. I have been amazingly accurate as well. I myself have other abilities, and others that I have been able to tell share that they also have more than one ability. I would be cautious about whom to share your stories with as was mentioned in other responses. I am glad that I am not alone here and would encourage you to address your other abilities. It's not much but let me know if I can help 😁

I used to be very good at knowing by a photo if a person was alive or not. Now that I'm older I second guess it so I'm not as accurate. I don't know more than that from a photo though. You are blessed:)

Very interesting post!

I was cautioned awhile ago not to tell people about what I see & hear when I'm awake. People will 1) think we are crazy, 2) avoid us like the plague for fear we know everything about them, or 3) ask us to read them.

Peace & blessings. 😊
