I have been raised in a very scientific environment, where spiritual and psychic existence was never thought or mentioned. However, some recent experiences of mine have left me extremely curious to whether or not I possess such spiritual abilities.
It all started about a year ago when I was just starting to see a new guy. We talked on the phone until very late at night, and I remember not being able to get him out of my head as I was falling asleep. The next day, he told me he woke up a couple hours later and could have sworn he saw me lying next to him. He said he was so sure that it was real that he was able to just stare at my face for a long time, but when he reached out to make sure, it was in fact nothing. When he told me this I did not think anything of it, of course.
Months later, a close friend of mine who had just moved out of town mentioned a similar thing to me. She said she woke up in the middle of the night and saw me lying beside her! She said my facial features were so clear that he just starred at my face for a long time waiting for her eyes to adjust. But when she reached out, it was just a pillow. Now I was really beginning to wonder what was going on.
After I talked about this to someone, they suggested I may be astral traveling at night. This seemed quite possible since I remember thinking of those people quite a lot around the time they 'saw me' in their rooms at night. However, as I read more about astral experiences, it seems that people tend to dream of flying around or at least dream at all. I almost never dream! I suppose that does not rule it out though.
So after this had come to my attention, a more recently startling event happened to me this time. I went to bed one night, and as I usually do, I very quickly fell into a very deep sleep. Approximately two hours after I fell asleep I recall hearing a loud bang, which was so loud I remember realizing its volume even though I was only barely woken up by it. I remember I was not alarmed by the noise, but was wondering what it was as I crept back into consciousness. In my aloof state, all of a sudden my entire body began to vibrate. My entire body felt the way one's foot feels as the blood re-enters it after being asleep. This feeling scared me so much I jumped out of bed and turned the light on. I then noticed my door was shut (it never is). The loud noise had been identified, but until very recently I thought this was a ghostly experience. Was that me astral traveling again? Since I am so uninformed with things like this, I would love any advice or knowledge that can be offered.
Also, chakra stones make my hand go numb. Do these types of situations mean I have psychic abilities? Or spiritual? I'm not sure what this mean about me.
