Unsure Psychic


My name is Jahlycia and I have a small story and some questions. I discovered when I was around 5 that I can "feel" what others are feeling. Their emotions, you know? Well I discovered it when I had asked my dad why he was angry, but he told me that he wasn't. The thing is that later on I heard him talking to a friend about what was going on. I mean, I didn't understand at the time but now that I am 17 it has kind of gotten stronger.

I also have some kind of ability to hear people coming. I can also hear when the television is on but the screen is black or even if the television is on period, even if I am not in the room. Although that might not be a psychic ability.

I can sense the emotions of my friends and family, and even the occasional stranger. I also can tell when someone close to me has died, or something major along those lines, even before it has been confirmed.

Ok, so here are some questions that I would like answered:

1. Could I really be psychic or just really close to people?

2. If it I am possibly psychic, which one would I be and how could I find info on it?

3. How can I enhance and make this gift stronger?

If you have any possible answers to any of these questions, please email me at

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thank you soo much for your story! And yes I did read the ENTIRE comment. I have been told before that I could be an Empath, too, but I needed someone else's advice when it came to this kind of thing. It breaks my heart when I read how that girl hurt you. I have tried doing research but I am not getting anywhere. Do you know where I can get information being an Empath?

Thank you for your reply. I was wondering if you could elaborate what you meant? Thanks again!

Dear Iunderstand,

You have made some points that have piqued my curiosity. Would you please read my post and tell me what you think? I am especially curious as to your worldview and what you mean when you say you are a devout Christian?

You should understand that the type of "gift" or "power" as some would call is, way more offten than not, hated by those who accualy have it. I,just like you, came to this site with many questions. You should read my story and then tell me if you want to be able to do what is usualy called being a empath. To feel what others are feeling is only an aspect of it. I can see things about peoples lives, things I don't want to see but I can't help it. Its like I understand how things work. I have helped many people because of what I can see but it never turns off. When I go to the club with friends and look around I can see the shallowness and sence the negativety of everyone around me. Being able to feel what others feel eventualy developes into being able to read how deeply other people have the ability of feeling. I'm a 23 year old male and I have never had a girl friend because girls that I meet I just know it would never work out. I have tried to ignore this feeling or sence and try to talk to girls anyway but it onle gets me hurt. One girl inparticular told me once that she wanted to be with me for the rest of her life and that if I ever ran off somewhere she would come and find me. I wanted to believe her so bad but my sence told me it was a bad idea to allow myself to have feelings for her. I tried to tell her that I needed to stop talking to her but she persisted. I eventualy gave in and the one thing that I was terrified of ever happening happened just like I knew it would. Shes with another guy now but my feelings are the same because back then I did as she asked and trusted her. I should have listened to my 6th sence. Its often very hard for me to believe that other people understand lonelyness to a depth that I do. You are pretty smart though if you can read people like you say you can, it might be that you will become empathic later on. Being an empath is not all bad but it has been very confusing at times growing up not knowing what's going on in my head or my heart. I have nearly addmited myself into the hospital so many times because I thought I was going nuts. If you were trained to believe that the word psychic is an evil word but at the same time had psychic "abilitys" wouldn't you think you were just nuts? There are good things about being an empath though like I was saying. I love animals. Cats are my favorite. I can feel their comfort when I pet them. I like cats the most because I can see and hear them pur and also feel them so it gives me a feeling of being both physicaly and spiritualy connected to them. I also have a very strong connection to music. I can feel things when I listen to music. I can draw energy from music that I'm listening to. Certain movies are really hard for me to watch though, love stories mostly and movies when one of the charactures loses a close friend or dies for someone, watching stuff like that nearly makes me cry every time. I hope this has helped give you more insight into what you are trying to understand. Although iv talked about myself the whole time I was hoping you could relate or feel what I'm saying. If you can connect to what I'm saying without even hearing my voice or seeing my face you probably are empathic. So there's your answer. By the way, psychic is an extremly broad term that encompasses all sences beyond the common 5. Some people are born a higher reception for these types of things but we all are capable of them. Many people claiming to be psychic or have "powers" would like to keep this type of info to themselves or charge you for it in silly sessions called "psychic readings". Most of these readings are complete nonsence appealing to nothing more than the victims ego. There are many con artists out there. Our Godless western society has replaced the spiritual with a lifeless science. I'm not saying science is bad. I'm a hardcore empiricist and a devout Christian (which is a very odd combination). To understand the psychic realm in more depth its important to realize that there are 3 components to our being, the physical body which acts like a shell or vehical and holds our being together, then the mental which allows us to think and biuld structures in our heads (like a worldview for example), then the spiritual which gives us life and purpose. All the are important and no part is less important that the other. Each of us has a center of being. The vast majority of people in our society are way unbalanced and their center of being rests nearly only in the physical, this is why people are so easily influenced by others thoughts and believes and also why people you see driving in their car often look like dead people. People nowadays are nearly dead, noebody cares about mental or spiritual development anymore, everything is about physical appeal (sex, money, stuff). Meditation helps a lot to balance out your center of being. I use visualizations when I meditate sometimes, then other times I use music, then still other times focus on emptyness. What you don't want to do is go from one extreme to the next. Some people shift way over sometimes into the mental or spiritual from the physical. Balance is key. Anyway, I'm done rambling. If you have acualy read all this you are a champ. Goodday friend, I truly hope I have helped.

Hey there!

To me, it doesn't sound like much of your experiences are the ability to read people body-language-wise. If we pay attention to others, it is fairly obvious most of the time what they are feeling. But most people are too busy to want to do that.

Hearing the things you are hearing just sounds to me like you have exceptional hearing. Electronic devices do emit soft hums and such when they are on.

Don't be disappointed because I have found that many people feel they cannot open up to those around them and share their true feelings (Just read a few posts on this site alone). If you can tell that a person is going through a hard time, the most precious thing you can do is to be there for them and allow them to talk.

That may not sound glamorous, but it is an extra-special gift in my view. Feel free to check out my post or email me at bigloumedia [at]
