I have had a few supernatural experiences in my life time (I am 27). One when I was a child, a couple in houses I lived in and many when I worked in old Churches. I believe that I am quite susceptible to the paranormal as I often can tell people what they are thinking (like reading their minds). Things pop in to my head like their feelings, thoughts. Mostly their feelings.
I always know who it is before I pick up the phone, it rings and a name quickly pops in to my head. Even if it is junk phone calls I know straight away. It's not a conscious decision to choose a name, it just happens. If I analyze this I could say I only have about 8 people who ring regularly and usually the same time of the day. (No I don't have caller ID, LOL). True enough it can probably be put down to educated guesses. Some instances happen though like the above. The phone will ring in the middle of the night or at a strange time of day and I can tell who it is and what they want without answering it. What do you think this is? Close links with my family? (I am not particularly close to my family).
Similar to the above, I can be driving in my car (never seems to happen when I am walking) and people pass by and things pop in to my head like names, where they are going, what they have been doing / going to do. Is this just my imagination, or I am susceptible to things I don't understand? As I have never followed through finding out if any of my thoughts are correct or is it just me making up stories. I just find it weird that these thoughts just pop in to my head. I don't start it by thinking to myself... Wonder what they have been up to
Also, I often have premonitions about events that happen sometimes minutes, days or years after I have them. People explain this as deja vu which is possible, but is it common to have it happen so often?
I will tell you of one instance of this just as I find it interesting and a talking point. I had a dream, I would say 10 years ago, that I was sat outside a car hire place, in a hot country with this girl that I really liked but did not know well at the time. I remember the dream as I was obsessed with this girl and wrote down some of my dreams (don't know why). During the past 10 years we got together and a few weeks ago got married, whilst on our honeymoon we were sat at the airport in Hawaii outside a car hire place and I got a shiver down my whole body as I knew I had a dream about this. It was so vivid that I got to my feet and started shacking and looking around in amazement. How had I dreamt this when I had never seen a photo, or been there before? Was it built when I dreamt it? But just think I dreamt about my future 10 years ago and any number of incidentals could have prevented it from happening. Are our futures really mapped out for us?
I am a reasonable person and can put most of the above down to being observant and in tune with peoples feelings around me. It interests me greatly.
I would welcome comments negative and positive. Do I have a gift or just an active imagination? And if I wanted to develop it... How would I do it...(what a scary question).
