Real Psychic Experiences

I Am An Empath, And I'm Not Sure About The Rest? 2


This is the second part of my first post about my being an Empath, and trying to figure out what other abilities I might have. I have had several different things happen over the years, and all of them seem to be getting more and more frequent.

I have always had a sense of just "knowing" about things. For instance, I have frequent occurrences where my intuitions are extremely strong. I know without a shadow of a doubt when something bad is going to happen. I get sick at my stomach and a strong sense of unease, and within a matter of hours and sometimes a couple of days, what I sense will happen does. I feel it in every part of my being. I will think about a distant friend, and she will contact me usually immediately even when we have not talked in months. I know that I should change something or do something in order to prevent something negative from happening and sometimes to help something good to happen, and it always does. I know these things sound kind of vague, but this happens so often - almost on a daily basis, that I could never remember or type everything there is that has occurred. I will dream something will happen, and it does usually the next day. Many times this is like deja vu, where I know I have experienced it before.

I have had lots of experience with the paranormal. I have seen shadow people several times, and have seen several ghosts/spirits. Everywhere that I have lived, I have had things happen including the things above as well as electrical issues, doors opening and closing, footsteps, and a feeling of not being alone or being watched. Just the other night I had a door close when there was no draft and no one at home, and right after that, our electric can opener went off and was actually stuck running. It takes a lot of pressure to get our can opener to work, and something had to press hard to get it to stick like it did.

I wake up at night many times to hearing foot steps, voices, and things that sound like someone else is in the room. There's been numerous times that I hear what I swear sounds like a radio going with people talking, and sometimes even music in the background. None of our radios are on when this happens.

A couple of times, I have been in that state where you just are falling into sleep and I hear a voice, almost a loud whisper, that says my name and it startles me so that I wake up. My husband never talks in his sleep and his voice is totally different than the one I hear, but it is a male voice every time.

Another time that I was almost in that sleep stage was when I was trying to take a nap, and I had a female voice say the numbers "2 2 2." It jolted me awake, and I had the feeling that I immediately had to write it down. I am an artist, so I keep an art journal, and I felt I had to create a journal page using those numbers. That happened about 1 month before we moved to a new town, and I still am not sure what those numbers were supposed to mean. It has now been over 4 months ago, and I still haven't figured it out.

I have had many conversations with my Grandmother who passed away in 1996. She always comes to me in that almost dream state of sleep, but I remember every visit and conversation with her as vividly as if it had happened with me awake.

I have also experienced several "signs" through nature. For instance, my grandparents lived on a farm when I was growing up, and close to the front of their house was the largest garden spider I have ever seen. She seemed to come every spring to the same spot close to the end of their roof, and would stay until winter. Just a few weeks before my Grandfather passed away, I happened to think of that spider one day. Low and behold, the very next day one showed up on the side of our house where our roof ended just like the one I saw growing up. We never had any garden spiders where we lived, and that was the only one I ever saw there. She stayed until he died, and then she was gone when we got home from his funeral.

Another time this same type of thing happened with a red dragon fly. I remember thinking to myself that I had never seen a red one before because we had a lot of them where we lived that had greenish/brown bodies and blue tipped wings. The very next morning, I was standing out back with our dog and all of the sudden a red dragon fly landed on the chair next to where I was standing. I was just mesmerized! It was solid red - body, wings and all. I remember thinking I wish you would turn to the side where I can see you better, and it did as if it seemed to know what I was thinking. It stayed there a good several minutes before flying away. When it left, I had a feeling that something bad was going to happen to my brother, and sure enough it did the same day the following week that I had seen the dragon fly.

I know things things may seem far fetched to some, but they are very real for me. My questions are these:

1. Has anyone had these types of experiences? If so, I would love to hear them.

2. Is it common for and empath to have other abilities along with the empath ones?

3. Can anyone shed some light as to what these things might be or mean, or what type of abilities these might demonstrate that I have?

4. Does anyone know what the numbers 2 2 2 might mean, or what it means to get some sort of number message like I did? What about hearing my name being said? Have any of you experiences any of these things?

I am at a total loss as to what these things could be or mean. I have never really understood them, and I just want to try to figure some of this out so that I can learn as much as I can about these abilities on my end so that I can learn how to use them better.

If anyone can shed some light to any of this, I would really really appreciate it!

Wow, I get a lot of that too. We have a ghost in our house and I hear her all the time. Talk to her sometimes too. She never speaks to me directly but she answers me in different ways like moving stuff or ceasing an activity when I ask her to.

I get the "there's something bad going to happen" feeling. For me its like a massive, painful knot in my chest and I feel really really anxious, I feel just plain wrong is the best way I can describe it, if I can find the trigger, I can usually work out what is going to happen.

I can also read animals very easily and have a great deal of ease in training them as they seem to know what I want. I can also feel the energies of structures and buildings (and whatever may be residing in them) which makes renting interesting cause I can turn down a house solely based on the premise that it doesn't feel good.

I think being open to one thing makes you more likely to be sensitive to others so empaths, especially the ones with strong abilities often have other 'quirks'.

It isn't uncommon for someone who is aware of a psychic ability to show signs of other abilities. The technical terms for the things you are experiencing are Clairsentience (Empathy) and Clairaudience (hearing voices and the like from things that are not physically present, corporeal). You might also be exhibiting signs of Clairvoyance, or knowing things that might happen before they occur. Really, the list of possibilities are endless, especially since your sphere of influence seems to be growing. I wouldn't worry about though, it's not necessarily a bad thing.

I have had a lot of similar experiences to the ones you have described. I've never spoken with another 'empath' in person before, but my family is very open about these kinds of things and anything I might have exhibited as a child was encouraged. To them, psychic experiences and the like have been a part of life for as long as anyone can remember. I suppose this is why I get confused sometimes when someone admits to not knowing until they were older that they were psychic. 😕

As for the overwhelming emotional influencing your experiencing around others, meditation would be a good step in the right direction for now. I'm not saying you have to create some elaborate setup with candles and incense while channeling Buddha or whatever. 😊 Just finding a few minutes throughout your day to stop and take a few deep breaths and let yourself relax and concentrate on how *you* are feeling will work just fine. However, if you would like to channel Buddha or create your own little 'om' space, go for it. Just do whatever it is that's within your comfort zone.

If you would like, you can email me at A.Bouie17 [at] and we can talk more in depth there.

Good luck! 😉

Anyone seeking some collective, universal meaning in the number 222 may find that it is a mystery deeply personal. 222 is symbolic, but why did we become aware of this particular symbol? It may be helpful to reflect on the events, thoughts & feelings in our life experience at the time we first became aware of the 222 mystery. More important than what 222 universally means is why we became sensitized to the number 222. The answer to this question will be many and varied, but I believe 222 (like anything catching our awareness) facilitates our making sense out of the life events connected to this awareness.

The numer 222 can also refer to 2:22, as in the time, and it is likely that something might happen at that time.

I would like to know why 12.21.2012 is the date the Mayans predicted the eath woul end. I saw a post that the Mayan Pyramid of the Sun is 222 meters on each side - is this somehow related?

Many stories!
Yes, empaths do have a lot of uniques gifts...
I truly never met another empath. I tried to teach empath skills but it isn't the same.
I would love to share emotions with another empaths.
It would be a very intimate activity...
You have... Clairovance (or however you may spell it), and the rest I make up names for...
Instinct: it feels as if your will for something to happen will happen. I insanely use this for crossing the street anytime and predicting where train doors will be.
Manifest: either the weird events around you ate cause by your aura or some freakish people constently following you around and messing up your life. That I can't answer... too lazy to continue...

Yes! Is common to have other abilities other than Empaths... I have heard similar experiences as yours, the one experience that really got my attention, was the one about ["hearing voice sounds like a radio going with people talking, and sometimes even music in the background and also being in a state where you just are falling into sleep and I hear a voice, almost a loud whisper, that says my name and it startles me so that I wake up." ] I have experience that many times.

peaceful heart, each person receives informaton differently. Your stomach is located in the area of 2nd vital body, 3rd chakra mental. I've had the solar plexus actually vibrating when a situation is on alert around me. When asking my helpers if this was a deceased soul, I would get a cold feeling and a pain in my stomach.
The stomach can be a neg as well and should be supported by nutrition as well as complimentary therapies.

As for your numbers they are a flag with your personal guides. Mine show a picture neon colors indicating it is ok. Some times I'll get an family member come through saying its will turn out ok. There are books on number if you do not have one or 2.

I had writters block. I had orginally thought that it was an angel sending me a lovely energy that flowed down over my head. As I turned around there were 5 of my moms deceased family members whom channelled energy to help me. The parisoner of the church must of seen it and became afraid for the next day there was gregorian chants going on at 7am in the building.

As for the spider I see her when getting messages of a loved one whom cross over. But I have learned through the years that she can represent healing. This will depend on your ancestry and what she representes to your people.
