Real Psychic Experiences

Insanely Sensitive


I'm really apprehensive to submit this, but I'm so confused I think I need help. I've been pouring over stories submitted and feel at home.

I think I've always known I was different. When I was younger, I could tell time without looking at a clock face. I could tell my mother when it was noon, on the dot.

I've had dreams where things happen to loved ones. I had a dream where my grandmother had a heart attack. Two days later, it occurred. There have been multiple times this has occurred, not just this one time. As I've gotten older this has subsided.

When it comes to the radio, I'm able to hum the first few bars of the song before it comes on. I don't mean after the DJ has announced the song... I mean when it goes from one song to the next, without announcement or warning. This still continues today.

I have experiences when I'm driving. Lights will turn off. They won't even flicker anymore, they just shut off. When I've been living in an area for a bit, I know which ones will shut off on my drive and expect it now. They never fail me. It's only street lights... Never house lights or the like. The next morning they will be on, and just those "designated" lights will shut off. All others will be on. This sounds crazy.

In addition to these small experiences, I am insanely sensitive to what others feel. My husband constantly is telling me to let others have their emotions and not let it affect me.'s like a piece of them becomes a part of me. I can pick up on negative feelings, happy feelings... You name it. I feel like when I meet someone, I can notice certain things about them, I have no clue what, and know part of their past within a few short minutes. I don't know how or why... I just do. It's not often that I'm wrong. Many people, once a friendship has been fostered, will ask me how I knew to say a certain phrase to them to cheer them up and not let them become sad or depressed about something when they haven't given me any verbal cues/words to express their feelings. I haven't an answer for them except "I just thought of it".

I don't know what any of this means, I don't know if I means that I have abilities or what. I feel insane for even writing this... But I can't keep ignoring things that are happening around me.

Any me toos or advice for someone feeling completely and utterly raw?

Im still working on the shielding thing and I can't throw it up in a hurry if the wave I'm getting from someone else comes hard and fast. I'm practicing it whilst I'm in a state of relative calm or only experiencing the duller emotions. I also put one up if I know I'm going into a situation where there is the potential to be overwhelmed like when I'm going to talk to my ex or something like that. It does give me a headache to maintain, but it works.

You must never feel insane, you are psychic, like all us on this website. You have precognitive dreams, so you are precognitive, you can see into the future. You can make lights and other objects stop working, so you are psychikinetic. And you can feel human emotions so, you are an empath.
Don't be afraid of them, they are gifts that were given to us, and I use my psychic abilities to help others, when people ask for my assistance. I believe that you will make a great teacher or therapists, because if you feel emotions, then you feel thier reasons, so you understand them.
I would suggest to program a psychic shield, because you may get consumed by the emotions you feel, especially if you feel too many all at once.
I hope this helps.:)

I have at one time or another had all of these experiences (although the traffic light thing only when I concentrate and it is pretty funny) so you are not alone!

Breanna, I think everyone has this conflict between psychic abilities and reason. Psychic abilities to me are instincts, the ability to do something without any experience or training, animals have instincts, we were animals in the past. Humans have reason, the ability to distinguish truth from falsehoods, good from bad. When one first becomes aware of psychic abilities you will be in conflict with the reason part of you, reason tells you it can't be done, but the psychic in you is doing it. This understanding helped me, I hope it helps you.

You're not crazy, but I understand how you might feel that way. I'm an empath as well and I felt different and crazy too. When you realize that you are an empath life isn't so troublesome, you realize your having an overload of other peoplrs emotions which affects your own. When you accept that, its so much easier to finally experiance your OWN emotions. They say shielding is good to practice, but I'm not sure how you do it. Hopefully youll learn soon.

Tess and cajunbecky,

Thank you both very much for your responses.

Tess - You are right about it affect my own health - all aspects of it. Often I'll feel drained, exhausted, or even just overwhelmingly sad after having multiple experiences in a row where I'm able to "tap into"? Others. I think meditation and shielding might be a good idea for myself.

Cajunbecky - funny you should ask about an interest in the medical profession. I'm currently attending school to become a therapist.

I think I definitely need to foster some type of defense for myself to not allow myself to become so raw and consumed with others emotions - regardless of how happy or upsetting they may be.

I'm just at a lost for developing this. It happens before I know it is really happening... And that can be frustrating because it feels like I just don't have control.

You are definitely psychic with strong empathic abilities. Are you interested in the medical profession? Many empaths are also natural healers. Begin now to develop your ability to defend yourself from negative energies that can leave residue in your own body. (It's like a piece of them becomes a part of me) There are many books on the subject of psychic self defense. It won't lesson your ability to receive the vibrations. It will protect you from physical and emotional distress. Good luck in your spiritual journey.❤

Well, your not insane. I get the street light thing all the time, its funny really. The 'thier pain is my pain' etc. Thing. I get that too, though yours sounds stronger and more reliable than mine. The common advice for dealing with it is meditation and a great deal of self awareness and analysis. I'm also trying shielding. I'm a straight out empath who can sense, hear and sometimes see spirits. I can also feel the energy of houses or other structures. Predicting the future, I leave for my mum.

You will need to get a hang of the empathy thing otherwise it can be damaging to your health, pysically, emotionally and even your mental health (that one I learnt the hard way). See it as a gift but don't let it control you. There are heaps of good ideas on this site alone so read through as many stories and comments as you can.

I loved finding this site too. Its good to know you are not alone.
