I remember when I was little I would fly, as I got older and started reading I knew that I had experienced astral projection. I would visit places for the first time and know that there was something missing that used to be there, I'd ask someone and they'd tell me I was right, they'd ask how I knew. I couldn't tell them as I just knew. As a small child I was very wary of men. I would only trust my dad or granddad. I wouldn't go near anyone else. I think this was a premonition as I was hurt at 5 years old by a man.
I was always 'somewhere else' as a child. I don't know where I went, but it was safe there and no-one could hurt me. I had numerous psychic experiences as a child. I knew I was never alone. My Grandad died when I was 3 years old and I knew he sat at the foot of my bed watching over me as I slept.
I am artistic. I have always loved painting and drawing but in my teens I stopped my art and these psychic feelings lessened. They still happened, just not as often. I think creativity enhances them. I was 15 when my gran died. She visited me in my dream the same night. I wasn't aware that she'd gone until I woke, and two years later to the day my beautiful son was born, her parting gift to me. Nothing strange happened until my son was around 3 years old, He said one day 'mummy, when I grow up I'm going to be a beautiful lady like you' to which I replied 'but darling you're a little boy and little boys grow up to be handsome men' to which he said 'no mum because before I died I was a lady' my re-incarnated gran maybe? Who knows, he has no memory of this but he is very like me. What am I? Psychic, clairsentient, clairaudient? I don't know I'm hoping someone here can tell me?
I know this. I can feel other people's pain intensely. If I help a friend with a problem I give them almost all of my energy and end up emotionally drained for a week. I see shadows in my peripheral vision, see sparkles most days and whilst on holiday I saw a large red orb next to my bed with no physical explanation for it. I hear whispering at night, and sometimes I experience a great fear like there is an ominous presence in the room with me I feel like I am never alone but sometimes I feel a presence and such a strong feeling of love comes to me. Your thoughts will be appreciated.
