I recently had a psychic reading from someone who had a near-death-experience. She mentioned "knowledge just comes to you" and "you can see auras". I've never SEEN auras but have since been reading up on it, and it sounds like anyone can do it if they practice. I've also read that a person can FEEL auras, and that auras are not necessarily about color ~ they also look like heat waves. Why she mentioned auras specifically seemed odd to me because I've never in my life seen them, but I do feel things about people. This seems more like ESP to me though. But because of this reading I'm just now looking into the whole psychic world. But I'm getting a little ahead of myself.
Maybe when I was a child (but didn't think anything of it at that time) but certainly as an adult, I come upon some people, complete strangers that I know "there is a story there". There is "something about them" that draws my attention and makes me notice them in a stronger sense than just that they're there. I was standing in line in a grocery store once years ago, and I saw this little girl; she couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old, but I knew that she was much more than a little girl ~ that SHE was the adult and the adult she was with was the child, that this little girl would have a very heavy cross to bear but that she could handle it. Another time I noticed a woman who'd recently registered in our church and knew there was something about her, a story. Some months later I came to know her and she had indeed suffered very much in her life; she'd been violently attacked more than once, had severe internal health problems, and other things. At the time of Pope John Paul II's death, and the subsequent gathering of Cardinals, it came to me in a voice, "Ratzinger" ~ I knew he'd been elected pope before the world news announced it.
It also happens that when my prayer life is more active, I'll be walking out of a store, or driving down the road in my car, or coming out of a building, that the street lights go out. Sometimes a whole block of street lights will go out. Also the light bulbs will dim when I go to turn off a lamp, or the radio will have a lot of static just before I turn it off. When my hand gets close, the reception gets bad.
Often times I know who is on the phone when they call. Not every time, but if it's someone I know or are related to, or if it's a "courtesy call."
I will think of movies or songs and a few days later that movie or song will come on the TV or radio. Or I'll think of someone and then hear from them the same day of a couple of days later.
This has been going on for years but I never thought anything of it until the reading a couple of weeks ago.
Several years ago I was tent camping in Yellowstone National Park and there were a lot of warnings about bears. One night I REALLY had to go to the bathroom but didn't want to walk in the dark all the way up to the shower house, so I went just outside the tent. I was really nervous and tried to hurry, and in my haste didn't have my pj's arranged like I should've, so they got wet. I was VERY, VERY irritated about this because I was freezing and knew they wouldn't dry. So once I was back in my sleeping bag all I could think of, over and over again, concentrating very hard and very peeved, "Dry! Dry! Dry!" and within a very short time they were as dry as if I'd just pulled them out of the drier!
There are various other things that have happened, but I won't continue here now. ESP, claircognizance, clairaudience, seem to be what I "have" or "do", but none of them seem really strong. Apparently psychic gifts can or should be developed for them to get stronger. Hopefully someone can give me a little guidance. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
