Am I Psychic Or Psychotic?


At the age of five, I was awoken abruptly from a very deep sleep by the feeling of being watched. I quickly got up and looked around, trying to find the source of what was watching me. It didn't take me long to see a large, shadowy figure in the hallway, walking quickly away as though seeing it scared it away. I got up and followed, but the only thing in the direction the figure had walked was a closet, and the figure wasn't there anymore. To this day, I still remember two things about the figure; it was a man, and he was dressed in a sort of Army or Navy uniform.

Since then, I have lived in the same house until very recently. The upstairs was a place that I can honestly say I was too terrified to step foot in. The feeling of an evil presence following me, as well as being watched and a pure, irrational fear were things that would suddenly begin occurring the second I stepped foot off the last stair upstairs. And even downstairs, I was overwhelmed with these feelings, though to a much smaller degree.

A truly terrifying experience happened when I was fifteen. I was downstairs, and everybody else was asleep. Suddenly, I felt as though I were being strangled, and I felt an unbelievable, overwhelming sense of evil coming from next to me, but I was against the wall of my room and on my other side was a couch. Since then, I have noticed that, if I look at my hand against a single-color wall, I can see a sort of outline around my hand.

In my new house, where I know there has been no deaths as it was built only a few years ago by the people who still live there, I still feel as though I'm constantly being watched, and I often have to blare my radio to get to sleep, as it somehow calms my nerves.

Am I hallucinating and paranoid, or is there something else to what I see and feel? I believe I'm completely sane, but sometimes, what I see and feel come from nowhere, and that concerns me and makes me wonder. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

If others have experiences or believe - then they think you are psychic. If others don't have experiences or believe - then they think you are psychotic. Everything you describe is real to you and many others. Unfortunately, we don't always have someone experienced around us when we are children to explain this to us. You can learn to control how you react to the negative and learn from the positive. You can make this better. I have seen entities since my earliest memories. It can be wonderful. But you have to ask for help to learn how to deal with the evil. You will control what happens next, how will you move forward? You have many offers of help, what will you do?

i noticed when I am sleeping a voice which is not mine is coming out from my mouth. It is a sound which is quite disturbing. It is a voice of a tortured soul asking for help. This only happens every now and then. Can anyone explain to me what this means and if I am being used by some sort of spirit. Vette777

Demons are real. So I believe your story. I have seen demonic beings in the etheric realm and they are common there. So do not feel bad. They can also influence people in 3D. Your experience is valid with me. If you seek more help check out this link

first of all what you are seeing is not a demon because a demon doesn't have a body, it dwells in a place looking for a body to possess. If it could touch you to the point you can feel it, then its most likely a poltrigeist (ghost with physical body) second of all, I don't know how your religious views are, but cover your self in the blood of jesus and bless your house/room; these things can't touch you unless you allow it to, so tell it to flee in the name of jesus. Also shadow your self so you don't hear or feel it. I can see and hear spirits as well, but I can also fend them off on my own too. Just don't be scared because it enjoys pain, sorrow, anger, and all other negative emotions and energies. Second timothy chapter one verse seven says: for god has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. DONT LET IT HAVE POWER OVER YOU god gave us power over things of the devil, so you can beat what ever it is that is haunting you.

Oh goodness!
Reading these things from all of you definately makes me feel more comfortable with what I see and feel. You're pretty much in the same position I am in. But just recently mine was a dream... It sounds crazy and you all will wonder why I stress it if I didn't actually see it and it was only a dream... But its still killing me. I will post it at some point... I wish I could help you, but I'm trying to figure out the same thing... Good luck.

Wow, that sounds awful! I know the feeling though. A few days ago I woke up feeling like the room was shaking and I could see a man standing in the middle of the room screaming, I could barely hear it though. The sound was so high-pitch that I though my head would explode. But I agree with the people over here, don't try to get rid of it yourself. Ask someone for help, it might hurt you if you do it yourself.

I have a friend who lived in a haunted house and the spirit in that house beat him up pretty bad when he tried to get rid of it, and he had bruises all over his body because of it, so please, do ask someone for help.

Good luck!

omg your like me.
Ive been diagnosed with Psychotic depression don't ask lol.
Ive been seeing ghosts and spirits since the age of 5 too.
And now they have put me in a mental hospital because I told them about what I was seeing.
But I no I'm sane but I should of just keeped my big mouth shut
But don't worry keep this to yourself and people you can trust like us on here and friends.etc. Your very sane never doult yourself. What you have been seeing and still seeing is very normal to me and you and others on here.
But others are not like us you see because they have not got a good understanding so stay strong and don't let this demon beat you. If you can channel your abilities and then you will be able to beat this evil spirit that you have. I wish you all the best. Sunder mic xx

Somehow I doubt a demon would walk away if it got spotted... So I'd go with evil spirit, maybe an angry ghost. Either way, use caution, because both can be quite dangerous, as you probably know.
As usual, I advise against trying to get rid of this thing by yourself, but rather ask higher powers for help. Believe me when I say they're much better equipped for this kind of stuff.
Don't think you're paranoid or hallucinating. You're not the only person who's had these kind of hauntings. Feel free to go to any strong psychic you might find in your neighbourhood, or to ask for help on this site.
My e-mail address is in my profile, in case you have any questions.

Good luck.

You're sane don't worry haha. I have a friend who is in pretty much the exact same situation. You have a demon, and evil spirit, following you. For whatever reason, it's mad at you. VERY mad. But that's not always a bad thing, until of course it gets to the physical stage. You just need to be able to shield yourself and protect yourself. And if you can see your aura, which I can tell you can through your story, it will be easy. Please email me? I really want to help, but have limited access to this site. My email is annie.haftl [at] Good luck, God's Light...
