Parents Don't Believe Me


My parents think that I am going crazy because I get headaches all the time. And the weird thing is that they go away so quickly. They don't believe me when I tell them that I'm psychic. My mom thinks that I just need to see a doctor and that meds would help. But they do not and I don't trust doctors. I have not been to one in two years because I don't get sick anymore. Whenever I say that I am psychic they just look at me and laugh. Even my old counselor thought that I was weird. I know that I am psychic because I can talk to spirits and see auras when I want to and the headaches I get as well prove it.

Also, I have taken the tests on here and they say that I have a very high psychic ability. My mom just keeps saying that there is something wrong with my eyes but I can see the colors around people. Why can't they just except me for who I am? What did you do when your parents wouldn't believe you?

Can you please help me so my parents will understand who I am, because it is starting to get out of hand. And I don't know what to do anymore. So please if there is anything that you can tell me, anything that would be great. Thank you very much. I am just and teen so I really don't know what to do about it.

It is simply a matter of perception. People only see what their beliefs allow them to see. Until they believe it, they will never see it. People like me and you see the magic everyday... Because we are AWARE of it. People who are unaware, and choose to be that way... Will never see it. I want so much for my wife to understand also, but she has not reached that state of awareness yet. We can't push them to believe. We just have to understand... That is where they are in their journey and accept that. I know your frustration. But understand this, they are watching your every move, and this will help in their evolvement. Show them the way.

Darkqueen- I am in the same boat you are in. I cannot necessarily tell my parents about my gifts (my mom is more accepting than my dad, due to his religious views, unfortunately), but this is exactly why this site is here! It can be a nice outlet to 'let it all out' when you are frustrated and confused with what you're experiencing, and you can count on our lovely posters for a friendly word of advice, which can be extremely helpful.

By what you've described, it does sound like you can see auras and you may have a gift reminiscent of a medium.

When I find that things are getting out of hand, it helps me to stop for a few minutes to relax and meditate. Focus on positive energy (happy thoughts, thinking of a plus sign, if you need a visual), and focus on that energy staying within you.

Another helpful practice when meditating or doing breathing exercises is to focus on pushing the negative energy out. I do this by thinking of a visual (minus signs), then push it out of my 'bubble', when I exhale.

Just remember that if you need help, you can always ask in the form of a post. Sometimes, you may even make an awesome friend on here, and you both (or if there's more) can make a strong support group.

Thanks for sharing, and keep us updated.

Au Revior. 😊 ❀

Raincloud, I'm not sure if your post was sarcasm (Sarcasm doesn't necessarily transpose to text well), but I would have to strongly disagree with your assumption about medical professionals.

There seems to be a misconception that psychiatrists and other doctors immediately jump on the "meds band-wagon". If this were the case, it would be a malpractice on their part.

A psychologist/psychiatrist/physician with the intention of practicing medicine in an honest way, will NEVER write a prescription on 'the drop of a hat', without doing a full assessment of the individual, running tests, and considering the best possible route of action.

Also, many a time in psychological practices, a background assessment of the individual's spiritual beliefs may also be considered. Why do you think the field of parapsychology was developed?

So, unless the doctor is a drug pushing sleaze, they won't immediately write a prescription.

I hope this assumption will finally get extinguished, as I have seen it on this site a few other times.

Au Revior. 😐 ❀

Why don't you try to prove it to them. Maybe think a plan and they will know that you are telling the truth. Good luck.

Well, yea... The first thing you never ever ever want to do is TELL THE WORLD OF YOUR SPRITUAL ABILITIES... Which is why this site is kind of crazy... And I don't believe in 80% of the posts on I would never in a million years post an overly personal experience... Nor tell doctors... And not my parents either lol... Find a few close openminded friends... They will get it...

ALL doctors will put you on meds for anything spiritual at a drop of a hat... And once they do its on record for EVER. Go go around tellin yoru doc's that you see or feel things and your an empath... They will treat you like your crazy... I have heard so many stories of this happeneing... Please becareful! You wouldn't want to get into that position...

for me, I have some type of ability but I don't know yet. I have encounters with same numbers on the clock like 10:10 or 11:11. Once I saw 8:11. I thought "ok its not the same" but then I thought that 8+3=11 and the 3 reminded me of God: the Holy Trinity. 😨 my mom doesn't believe and my dad is now getting to not believe. (he tryed to be psychic when he was a kid) Damn. No one to believe me except hopefully you guys.

Well darkqueen... This is what parents do... They care about their children and quite frankly it is only natural that when you speak of seeing colors around people then getting headaches then one may worry that it is a sign of a health problem.

Sometimes when people get a certain type of migraine, some may see "auras" around people or objects before getting the migraine... Weird thing is, from what I read< is that certain migraines don't always involve pain.

Also I have read that some people who have a particular type of epilepsy might report visual disturbances prior to an epileptic episode.

Please understand I am not trying to dismiss your particular claims but try to see it from a parents point of view... Their child comes to them claiming to see auras and sees "spirits" so naturally they will worry that something is wrong.

I realize you won't believe me when I say this but when you perchance have children then you will probably be arriving at that assumption before you start thinking about anything else.

Also the tests on this site are not enough to help you determine whether or not you have any abilities... You need some reading material as well as self reflection.

Now that I am done ranting (yay!) I have to say that if your parents are really this unreceptive to your claims then it is best to just leave it alone especially if you know beforehand what their attitudes towards such issues are.

Please understand that the concept of "psychic" skills is rather uncertain, grossly misunderstood and is sometimes an all too easy claim to make especially if one does not possess enough information on how the mind works.

There is a difference between "believing" and"understanding".

Ok...I'm done ranting and sounding preachy. πŸ˜‰

I understand how you feel... My parents won't listen to a word I say about anything that involves me being psychic or having paranormal experiences. Just don't talk to them if they don't listen to you. They'll think you're insane or something, or just plain lying. I hope that all of our parents, family, and friends come to accept us for who we are someday...

I've kept my Aerokinesis to myself. I once told my dad, but he didn't give much of a "I believe you" or "You're faking." So I'm unsure on his thoughts. I never even bothered to tell my mom. I told my friends though, and they believed me. So, yeah, you should probably stop talking about it for a while. I know that the doctors can't do any good for stuff like this.

I know it's hard. I grew up with a mother that did not believe I would hear things (never seen anything). The older I got, I realized it's okay for her to have her opinion but I also have mine. 😁 I used to have very bad headaches and also stare out the window at school. Since my sister and brother are a lot older than me (I was the only child in the house) I thought no one understood until years later my sister and I were talking and she had and still have many experiences at our parents home and elsewhere. Be strong and educate yourself. 😊

I feel what you are going through. I don't have much of a support system in my abilities either. I finally learned that as long as you know who you, that is really all that matters, right? I would be nice to get the acceptance that we think we need, but isn't much better to know that you know your not crazy? It takes so much more energy to try to convince people that we are not crazy. Try using that energy to further your gifts. It has made such a difference in my abilities when I focus that energy to better myself and gifts, it really is ok to be selfish. Hope this makes sense to you. ❀

I know that it is scary. I see auras and spirits too. My parents also think that I am crazy when I know more then they know. I know that a ship will sink soon. I know that my great grandmother is an angel and protects my family. I know that I am not crazy and that these things are real.

I am 30 and I am lucky enough to have a mother who believes me. My dad would never listen to me though. My advice is to stop talking to your parents for now. I actually didn't tell my mom anything until years after it happened because I didn't think she'd believe me in the first place. If you're a good kid, which I was, it would seem natural to want to talk to your parents. BUT what I've learned over the years is to "test the waters" with people and only talk to people who are open-minded enough to at least listen to you. These days I will start by saying, "What do you think about psychics?" If they seem open to it, I will start to confide in them. If I sense they think psychic stuff is crazy, I stop talking about it immediately. I hope you can find someone to confide in like your grandmother, an aunt, a cousin, a close friend etc. It's never fun to feel alone, but over the years I have developed a very small network of people who I can confide in. Also... They might never believe you until you have some sort of premonition that actually affects them. If you have one of those, you should say something about it. Maybe then they'll believe you. ❀ Oh ya, and NEVER tell your doctor about it. There is no point in that unless you are worried you are actually schitzophrenic or psychotic.

The best thing to do is to stop talking to your parents on any of the sort. They would not listen even if the truth was in there face. They just never listen to anything that's abnormal because they are normal and your not.

im the same way. My parents don't really believe in psychics so they don't believe I am one. I told them (recently, because I am a teen too) once but from then on I have kept it from them. Don't think that you are alone in this. Some people only go by what is proven logically and not just stated. What I might suggest is to tell a close friend to you. They might think you are crazy or they could be the same. I kept being a psychic a secret from everyone until my friend made a mistake about saying something outloud that I had something similar to. Hope this helps shead some light on your path.

I'm 22 and told my mom I see spirits. I don't see them with my physical eyes, I see them in my minds eye. I told mom all that and told her there is a spirit right next to me, and she just blew it off, rolled her eyes and walked away. I told her there was a gargoyle in my car and she said I need to stop reading the book I was reading. I'm going to just stop telling her about it. Things can only get worse if I keep telling her. And doctors might assume that you're crazy. Then they put you on meds that do nothing for you or make things worse. I told my doctor what I was seeing and they put me on the pills that are for those who actually see things that are NOT there. I kept seeing things and sensing things it did nothing to my psychic abilities. I would guess just stop telling them these things and don't mention it to the doctors either, they always jump to conclusions.
