I am 18 and I recently found out I was psychic. I always knew there was something different about me but I had no one that really confirmed it.
The first time that I remember a psychic experience is when I was around 7 to 8 years old; I was at my incredibly religious aunt's house. We were leaving the house and I saw a woman, she was dressed in this white and red robe and throwing roses at me. A couple of hours later we were at the mall, I have no idea what compelled me but I had to put my hand in one of those payphone booths. I pulled out this medallion of Saint Theresa. I walked up to my mother and turned around and saw the same woman from earlier smiling down at me. I'm not quite sure what to make of this experience.
Later on in life I had this odd attraction towards tarot cards, and anything to do with anything psychic. I would study anything to do with the paranormal, and then I started to get an interest in different religions. For a while I studied the occult religion, but I found it was not for me.
A couple of months ago my mother ended up having a psychic medium as a client. She liked my mother so much that she offered free readings for her, my brother and I. When my mother and brother went they found out they were psychic as well. My mother has these gut feelings and my brother has the ability to understand animals. When I went, she told me that I was a medium like her.
She told me all the things that were happening to me that I was just brushing off as me hearing or seeing things. I would see shadows out of the corner of my eye and I could sometimes hear voices, I also hate mirrors because I am afraid of seeing something through them. Spirits usually are around me when I am alone or when I'm in my room. To be able to sleep I have to have my television on so I don't hear the whispering, and I have to have light in my room so I can see everything. I know they are still there roaming or looking at me. I was so relieved after that reading to know I wasn't losing my mind.
Immediately after that I told my mother what I was seeing and hearing. She has been very accepting and supportive about it, but my brother is a complete different story. I know deep down he does believe me but he refuses to say it out loud because he believe if he can touch it and see it then it is real, and saying otherwise would compromise his beliefs.
For a few months now I have been feeling like I have been attacked. When I try to sleep, I can see something from my third eye crawling towards my bed in this really creepy way. It makes me sit right up out of bed. A couple of times I feel something that is trying to get my attention, keep me up all night by putting so much pressure on me that I have a hard time breathing. I start to pray to make them go away, but it does not always work. They are more annoyed with me than anything and they back off for a little while.
Their is also this weird thing I noticed that I do whenever a powerful spirit is around, my whole body does this intense uncontrollable shaking for a couple of seconds. I can sometimes see these tiny little sparkles all around me; they are kind of like fireflies completely surrounding me and making me feel safe. I can get a feeling for what other people are feeling and I get really overwhelmed around big crowds. I can look at a picture of a person and tell who that person is. I don't usually see spirits often I usually just see shadows or I just know they are there.
I always wanted to improve my abilities but I was afraid to see the bad stuff, I do know that those two things do go hand in hand so I was a little reluctant. But I am now ready and all I need is guidance. I would also like to know if their is a name for some of these other abilities so I could study up on them to have some form of control and understanding of them.
