Developing A Psychic Ability?


When I was about 12 years old, my mom made an appointment for me to get two of my teeth pulled from my mouth. So the day finally came -- and my mom drove me to this like house/half dentistry/mouth surgery place. Anyway though, so I walk into a pretty big sized room, with a nice, comfy, warm looking chair in the middle. It didn't look intimidating or anything at all. It was very nice, classy - comfortable and relaxing as a whole environment, so I felt at ease.

Here is the part that starts to interest me a lot...

I sat down in the chair, relaxed; and waited for them to begin.

As they begun, they put me on laughing gas.

He [the surgeon?] counted me down from the number five, telling me that my whole body would become relaxed very quickly - and it did - BECAUSE I WAS VERY GIGGLY!:)

I felt that my body had become somewhat air-like, and fluid. It's like I had taken on another body, but chose to keep my eyes closed, because I was so relaxed? I guess I just enjoyed this state of temporary mind that I was at so much - that I didn't really bother to "open" my eye (s)

Here is the uncomfortable part of my story, that I STILL have trouble telling because it's hard to remember what happened fully.

The surgeon guy removing my two teeth told me that I would feel a small pinch in my gums. This was to numb my gums, so I didn't feel pain when he pulled the teeth.

*I feel the small irritating pinch of the needle in my gums* but at the same time, I LITERALLY feel what is my astral body/whatever body take off, OUT of my body - without warning too! - so I open my eyes only to be looking down at my body. I swear I could only recognize what appeared to be my sleeping body. I didn't see any "astral beings" or anything like they say you might. But you know? Better yet, I didn't even sense or see any human bodies near my physical body either! All I saw was a new "SIGHT". I can't even tell you what it looked like. It was maybe GOLD PARTICLES? Silver? Auburn? Bright but yet very beautiful? It was so new to me, that I didn't recognize any of it at all! I know that I was very frightened by all of this intake. So naturally I tried to close whatever "eyes" I was looking at, at the time.

This non-recognition of "whatever" I was seeing at the time scared the heck out of me!

[If you didn't get what I said from that paragraph, I just said: I saw through an astral-sight all of a sudden. It was scary so I tried to close whatever eyes I had.]

[...Moving On...]

My reaction was: "Am I dead?" I thought that I was dead. So I 'cried' or SOMETHING. Maybe since I was in astral form, I just projected a sad energy field or something. It just felt equivalent of crying to me?

So when I woke up after what seemed like hours, I asked my mom in the car: "how long was I out?" She told me 10 minutes. 10 MINUTES.

After I fell asleep at home, I never remembered this experience until I was 15 years old. THEN I got more into my spirituality. And asked my mom what she thought it was. She [my mom] thought it was an out of body experience.

I'm sixteen now, and experiencing a lot of psychic empathy. And when I say that, I mean that I'm aware of people's/entities/things energy and energy fields, and the fact that I can pick up A-LOT more on emotions in a room, a crowd, ect.

That's empathy right?

Well I'm really interested in all of this happening to me, and what WILL be happening to me. And I'm open minded to EVERYTHING, so I'm thinking that maybe as I'm getting older, I'm coming into some sort of psychic awareness? No one in my family is psychic, but it shouldn't have any effect on my experiences right?

So I have three questions for anyone out there reading this (and you can answer one, or any OR ALL of them if you'd like. =]

1) Did I astral project?

2) Am I an empath? <---- [I'm almost 90% positive I am...]

3) General advice for a struggling psychic/empath/?other things?

I'd say you're an empath and you can astral project. Very lucky. For empaths, if you focus long enough and hard enough you can change people's emotions and thoughts with those emotions. I've been doing that for about two months now. I've done this to kids in my school who are stressed and they hang out with me because "You relax me." It takes a long time to do that, but once you get going on that it's easy and you're helping someone out.

Astral projecting takes practice. I've been trying to do this for six months and I can just barely move out of my body. I think you have a natural ability that needs to be worked on. Also, do not worry about not making it back to your body when you astral project. This causes you to not astral project or it becomes harder to go back to your body. If you don't worry about it, it'll be easy.

Have fun and take care,

Winter_Lilly 😊

I hope you don't mind if I say "that is really awesome!" Was what you saw near the body? If so, you may have seen your aura. I have had OOB experiences, and I've read books on the subject, and I don't hear of any 'free-floating' (if that's what you meant), colors, except those that belong to the aura. I know a girl named Meghan who sees aura's. I would LOVE to be able to do that. One of my gifts is so dramatic that I used to mostly only think of it as a curse.
Earlier today I was reading a post here, a guy was talking about free floating colors, and he wasn't high. I don't remember his name, or whose story I was reading but he was talking about seeing colors while astrally projecting.
Certain chemicals have reactions in our brains that make us see colors, if you haven't seen colors since, it was pry due to the gas. I'm sure you've heard of people seeing colors while on LSD or shrooms, I'm not endorsing the use of those items, just explaining the most likely cause.

I have to say yes, you did astral project. When you see yourself from a birds eye view or you see your body on a bed or a chair, then that is a common symptom of astral projection. I you can pick up other peoples emotions, then you are an empath, try to program a psychic shield, that will enable you to be protected from being consumed by the emoitons you feel.
I would say, don't see your gifts as a curse, because they are not. They are gifts given to us for a reason, and I say we should help others using our powers, that is what I do with my psychic powers, I help others. Why else were you given them?

i was stressed out one time and I went to bed. I swear I left my body and was at the top of mount everest. I looked down and saw no feet or body, I felt such joy! Later, I woke up with a jolt and felt relaxed. I also pick up on people's feelings and just know what their thoughts are, and grant, I totally get the signs concept. You'll be thinking something and your answer comes in the form of a song on the radio, a tv show, nature or even something a friend may say. Don't fear anything and stay positive, it is a beautiful gift to have.:)

Thanks a lot Terry! Its always good to hear from another like minded person that I'm not insane. Deep down I knew I had abilities but its a hard thing to accept. Yeah I have talked to others like me and they feel great energy from me. I have also been told I'm an indigo or star child. And I tend to think a lot differently than everyone else. Like seeing signs in basically everything in day to day life. Like in clocks, radio, and the t.v. And I often know what someone is about to say before they say it. I wish I could give you some advice but as you can tell I am having a little mental block on what is really happening since I've started at such a late age. But thanks a lot for your input I need as much advice as I can get.
