Real Psychic Experiences

Insane Or Gifted?


I've been documenting my encounters since I've been given advice that it would be the best way to help me with these "visions". I'm not sure if it will help me but it is sure worth a try. My stomach is churning as I write this; I've never been a believer in any sort of religion or supernatural beings. But somehow that doesn't stop one from experiencing things does it? As I posted in my first story it's been happening since I was very young (my hands are shaking so bad I almost can't type.)

In my first post, I mentioned about my parents being very Catholic and maybe not believing me if I told them. Most of you encouraged me to share my feelings with them anyway. I'd like to update you on that matter, they think I'm insane. So I suppose it was a bad idea to tell them. I don't blame any of you of course since it was up to me to make the final decision. They haven't taken any action, just telling me that it is nonsense and to not tell anyone about it for they will think I'm crazy.

But that isn't why I'm posting for a second time. My reason is much greater I guess when I said I was afraid before I didn't know what being scared meant. People are always fighting about visions are a gift visions aren't a gift. How can they be a gift when I'm afraid to sleep anymore? They are worse now that I've acknowledged them. Not worse as in more frequent, but worse as in I can see people's lives in war and bad fortune in others lives that I don't want to know about. I've tried the whole "go away thing" and the mediation and trying to block out things, I've gone back to ignoring it too, but nothing I do seems to work. It's as if something or someone gave this (gift or not curse depends on who you are) to me and no matter what I do it's always going to be with me. I've learned to accept that although I'm not too optimistic about it.

Over the past few weeks I've began to see more then the future, I see dead people (don''t laugh), but I can't explain it anymore than that. They aren't living, I'm sure, but if they have died or are just something I don't know about I'm not sure. I'm always uneasy now, it's like this whole thing is taking me over. Should I commit myself? Go on medication? I'm not sure. But I do know that whatever is happening to me I'm not happy with it but if I could have ever chosen between having this ability or not, I would have passed up the opportunity no doubt.

Maybe I'm being too hard or maybe I need someone like whatever they call them, teachers? They are like teachers but for "special" people maybe? Probably not. But I had to ask anyway. I'm not quite sure about any of this anymore, I'm going kind of fuzzy. I think all of this is making me nervous.

All I can say for sure is that I'm not coping well with all of this.

Any ideas or advise would be grateful.

Hmmm I just read your story. It sounds like these 'visions' are really affecting your happiness. You really have two options, embrace them, or seek help.

But either way I think you should talk to the people around you because they are your support network. Don't worry if anyone calls you crazy or insane because everyone is insane. Normality is determined by averages, and it is no measure of health to be normal in a profoundly sick society.

However, if these experiences are blight on your life don't be afraid to get an assessment from a psychologist or doctor. It could make a whole world of difference for your happiness! PM me if you want to chat it out:)

I know this is an old thread so I hope things are going much better for you these days!

I don't think you are crazy. I see them to.
Sometimes I even see the ones that have crossed over.
But try and not be afraid of them, the dead can't hurt you. If you say the holy name, the bad ones will go away.
If you can't do anything for them, then give them a pray and tell them to go into the light. Sometimes they will go.
If you need help I can try and help you.

I really want to experience something like that.

They said that you get a like an adrenaline rush doing it... Gosh I love adrenaline rushes.

It's just knowing that your not alone in a place that was suppose to be abandon with something else lurking inside is so cool

I hate it when they play games.
I don't see why they don't just tell you
What they want! Why do they have to make it a whole riddle-me-this game. 😠

I try to ignore it but I can't.
I guess that's the indigo in me.
Can't ignore what I have.
Sucks too. 😨

But yes, they do cross the comfort zone alot

I just ignore them because well I don't feel like getting scared or talking to them...

The feeling that they give me, I hate it.

I don't think that is is selfish especially when they start to play games with you!

It's just not in my comfort zone to deal with ghost, looking at me, touching me etc. 😠 😭

Yeah I bet it is! 😒
Seeing them isn't that bad, I can hear them too but they don't really talk to me. Or you know follow me around, if I'm out I can see them places just lingering or following other people. 😨
But sometimes they come home with me.
Which is scary, one time, They (it was a he) through my angel statue at me. He still lingers around me sometimes. I don't know if we are supposed to help them or ignore them? πŸ˜•

In my opinon people don't believe or have been chosen by a higher power to have a gift or have diserved it for a reason I agree with you about not beliving and getting your gift but I seen it happen to a lot of people who have a lot of faith or do a lot of good deeds and it happens over time many people have talked about in teachings and books but you are not the only one off mostly every one here has had there pernormal experince I hope this helped. 😜

Thanks 😊
Sorry about the headache! 😜
Yes, I suppose your right.
But sometimes it feels like I really shouldn't have this "gift"
Why did I get it? I'm anything but abnormal. I mean... Okay maybe a few things are off about me. But still why do certain people have it and some don't? πŸ˜•

❀ Thanks everyone for helping, I was in the middle of a breakdown there when I wrote that. 😒
But I'm much more calm now.
Bl_april: complex? I hear about a lot of people saying how easy it is and wonderful to be able to see the future. Precognition I think it is called. Also you are completely right about the parents, crazy and ashamed thing. Thanks 😊

I think youve been given a GIFT. You will be able to help people with it in the future I'm sure. Maybe start reading about it. EX. Sylvia Browne, James Van Praagh, Colette Baron-Reid, etc... Your not crazy... I wish I could see more of what your seeing!

First of all calm down you don't want to make yourself worse. Second you have to understand that having this gift is very complex. You want always feel in control. The gift is just that a gift. You can help others if that is what you chose to do but first you have to get ahold of yourself. It seems to me that now that you told your family and they think you are crazy you feel ashamed of the fact you are gifted and it makes you uneasy so you want to give it back so to speak. πŸ˜• Don't let the fact that someone else is been unsupportive to you make you think you are crazy your not. You just need some guideness. 😊 Everything will work out you just have to hang in there. There are those who can help you they are on this site just inquire upon them they will help. πŸ˜‰ Hope this helped you some.
