Real Psychic Experiences



My name is Simon, and I'm 12 years old in middle school. I'm extremely suicidal because of my abusive family, though I have a very funny and loving side next to my 'suicidal' side (does that mean I have Bipolar?) I've contemplated taking my life a few times and even tried to jump off the roof of a 4-story hospital. I've even tried cutting myself a few times, never hitting an artery but bleeding a lot. Right now I'm not attempting to do anything bad, though I'm on the verge of running away. Also, I'm not a stupid dramatic drama-king/queen. I wouldn't be making this up.

Regardless, ever since I was very, very little (I'm talking around 4 years old), I could see shadows. Shadows as in people. Whenever I look back up, there's nothing there-as if that 'thing' I just saw disappeared. It's most prominent when I'm alone. For one example, when I was bending down to pick up my vacuum, I literally saw the shadow of a man standing above me, looking down. It disturbs me, and sometimes I hear/see things coming from my closet. Also, I can sometimes see very *faint* Auras around my classmates in school. I also get shivers down my spine at least 20 times a day, and I don't know what's wrong with me.

So, is this schizophrenia? Is it bipolar? Am I crazy (most likely due to my mental problems)? Am I psychic? I need your help classifying what I am, and maybe heightening my 'skills' (Oh God, that sounds like a stupid movie).

lots of people get this problem,simon. I used to have the same problem I saw shadows that looked like people and it was bothering me how there was no one there. Simon all you have to do is ignore it or pray for it to leave you alone.

You guys are so nice! This community is really helpful, I've been reading a lot (I'm talking about scanning this whole website 24/7). I'm so glad to have found a website full of so many interesting and caring people with a lot of the same problems as me, though I don't have the time to email any of you because of my school work.

Anyways, I'm trying to communicate with these Shadows. Actually, now I refer to them as "Shadow Men" or "Boogey Men" to myself. I keep a journal with these terms I make for myself.

Right now I'm into Lucid Dreaming, controlling Elements, Premonitions, and capturing proof of these spirits (not to show anybody) and trying to communicate with them.

There's one VERY common shadow in my household. It loves to stand above me, and it's very tall, I know it. It wears a hood, and I see it in the Kitchen (where I was picking up the Vacuum), my room, the hallway, and my living room. I almost never see it in my older sister's room (I wonder why).

It's kind of hard, as nobody in my family has the same thing that I do (except for stories in which I've heard of my Grandma seeing some things, but she's ill and on the way to dying, which makes me sad).

Thank you again.

dear Simon, first I want to say I'm sorry you've had such a hard existence and I just want you to know that your not crazy, the shadows are real and they are in fact dead souls. Your probably a strong medium, Ghosts will flock to you because of your energy hoping to get some kind of contact with the world they once occupied maybe even their loved ones. I have one shadow that has been haunting the children in my family for years, he's my great great grandfather (a very bad man) and even though I'm not a child anymore he has stuck with me because I'm a sensitive which makes it easy for him to be around. I know its scary but most of them really can't do much except the usual ghostly pranks of running faucets and swinging doors. You should find a stable place to develop your talents because helping people get in touch with dead relatives can be quite lucrative when done well. You can really help some people and make a good life for yourself. If you want to talk more feel free to e-mail me at kayceegirl8 [at]

I understand completly. I myself have... Thought about things like that, doesn't matter. And I also get the shivers, and sometimes even feel seomthing bump into me or stare at me.
I think your a Medium, and that those shadows are ghosts.
If you ever want to talk, about anything at all (Even just cause your bored), Email me at:

Simon, you gotta calm down. I've been through the same. I've never tried anything, though. It's been really rough these past months. Just calm down. You can't let anyone get you down like this. Screw who ever's pushing you down like this. No matter what anyone says or does to you you're still you and you and you're still special like this and no one can change that. I'm going through the exact same thing. When I was younger I would see weird shadows too. And the aura thing, I started noticing auras around my friend in school just last year. I get those chills all the time at school because a boy was killed there pretty violently. Please don't commit suicide, dude.

Think about all the things you can do later, dead is not the answer. I agree with Rilan, but you can also call help from organisation who won't put you familie in the cell but will figure out together how to stop that abuse. Also to improve your sensitivy (?) try to meditate, try to visualize a white light surrounding you while meditating. 🤔

Sorry that your having a hard time, but like most of the people here, we thrive on our ability and it makes us feel like we have a purpose. Just don't commit suicide cause seriouslly it's a permant answer to a temtporay problem.

You are not crazy! Most of us here see stuff and those who are more experienced continuously tell the newer people that they are not crazy. I am not experienced, but I believe that what people see is legitimate. If any of our reality is real, then all of it must be. It all must mean something.

Just don't tell psychologists and stuff about this, because they oppress those who see differently. No matter what you tell them, they won't believe and they cannot be convinced. I'm not saying you shouldn't get help for your depression. Somebody might be able to help you have a better life. But visions and psychic-experiences should be private and not intervened in by people who don't understand them.

If you have an abusive family, you can contact an organization, or the government, and they will help. You don't have to be a government-trusting person to get help, because there are plenty of non-profit organizations determined to stop all the abusive families in the world. Abuse is illegal. If I had an abusive family, they would all be in jail by now.
