Real Psychic Experiences

There's No Such Thing As Accidental Mind Reading... Is There?


It was around the time I turned nine years old that I started experiencing weird encounters. I would be asleep in my bed and suddenly feel something like a jolt of electricity going threw me, and then I would see a flash of color while my eyes where still closed. Sometimes it would happen every night during a week and sometimes it wouldn't happen for months.

I started being able to sense a presence in some people's houses and in only my room of my own house. Sometimes I would feel it and it wouldn't alarm me, it would almost calm me, although there were definitely time where whatever the presence I was feeling wasn't a happy one. That actually occurred more than when it made me feel calm. Other times, when I was at other peoples houses and I would feel this presence and it would scare me and make me feel uncomfortable... Like I wasn't supposed to be there... But I learned to ignore it and to just pretend it wasn't there.

Things have calmed down since then and I don't usually get feelings like that, although the jolts and flashing colors do still happen occasionally.

I'm 18 almost 19 now and I feel I've been developing a new sense, I can read people's emotions and sometimes I know exactly what they're thinking. However I don't feel that its an ordinary psychic reading because I don't know I'm doing it... For example, I was hanging out in my friends garage one night a while back and it was just me and her. We were laughing and I went to hand her something and as she took it she said "give me this" and to my surprise the exact same thing came out of my own mouth, in the exact same way and tone of voice as hers, but it should not have because I had no reason to say that, I was handing her something, so why did I say it? This happens to me almost every time I am with her. I never mean to even talk though, sometimes it just comes out as if she where talking out of me and I say exactly what she is saying exactly how she is saying it. There's no reason for me to say it, and I never realize I say it until I've said it. (THAT WAS A MOUTH FULL) I don't really know how to explain it other then that.

I am notoriously a quiet person, this is because I am always listening to people talk. Sometimes when listening I will hear what one person has to say and think in my head something and then I hear someone else in the conversation say it, but its not a once in a while thing, sometimes people will have a whole conversation and in my head I will think of what everyone says before they say it. However I never know whose going to say it. It's like they come to me as my own thoughts but then word for word and exact tone they come out of other peoples mouths. Sometimes not even just my friends but my teachers and others too.

I can also feel other peoples emotions. I know when people are lying even if they stare me dead in the eyes and lie, I can sense it. I can sense if your upset and your hiding it, I can sense when your happy even if your not showing it. I don't feel it myself, I can just sense it. I don't know how to explain this either. I just know, there's no feeling in it I can just tell you. This whole thing confuses me because I don't know how to deal with it. When I hear my thoughts come out of other people's mouths word for word time and time again I don't know what to do. This is the first I've talked about it with anyone except one person. I used to surround myself with very spiritual people, people who believe in "the secret" and the teachings of Abram Hicks. I'm not sure if what's even happening to me is psychic or just something that I'm thinking to much into. I am a Virgo so who knows. Last night was my most recent encounter with both an unhappy presence and me reading someones mind, or what I think is me reading their mind. I don't have anyone to share these experiences with, or anyone who would believe/understand them. I'm curious if it's even possible for me to have abilities like this or if I'm just crazy. Anyone who can help me or tell me what's going on please comment this!

I think it's really important that I talk to you I'm a virgo to and I have had exactly the same exp. Add me on facebook Tamara Denton. It actually gave me deja vue when I read this. Nothing is ever as it seems remember this reality is only what has been taught and there is another reality that is concealed. There is something that is waking people up and it s within all humans a network that is more amazing then broadband it is a spiritual transmitter within us we are infinite and we must awaken to that reality.
I think its important that I Share my experiences with you and you with me.Here's my email to ninahag23 [at]

This is all very new to me and honestly I thought I would get comments about how crazy I am. Thank you guys soo much, I at least have some kind of direction now so maybe I can get this figured out. And if I have some sort of psychic abilities maybe now I can learn how to use it. 😁 I do experience this alot, and its happening more and more which is why I started looking for answers. I'm going to look into things like telepathy and soul reading. If meditating will help me develope what ever this is ill look into that as well. Its really confusing to me because iv never really been into psychic abilities and I don't know too much about it, other then what some of my friends who are into it have told me.

Well I kind of have the same thing goin on with mind reading, I'll do or say the same thing at the exact same time as my friends. Happens all the time, but only with my friends. For you it sound like it happens to whoever whenever. Try honing in on someones thoughts.

i am also a virgo and have this ability. I'm not too into astrology but we are said to be good listeners so one would think we ware more receptive to this ability. What I have learned is that you can make it work for you and others. If I know a new person I work with doesn't like me, I will use telepathy to figure out what their deal is and better approach the situation. Most of the time it's something they've gone through before and are expecting me to be like that or whatnot. If I determine it's not worth prying into, I just go on being positive! Embrace this! This can get weird, especially if you know uncomfortable info about a stranger, but hey, you're here to help!:)

I think this happens to a lot of people, particularly people who know each other well, but maybe not to the extent that it does with you. I think that most people are able to read their friends well and guess what they're going to say next. But there does come a time when the information you're getting goes beyond being able to guess.
What you're experiencing sounds like telepathy/empathy to me, and not just because that's the category your story comes under lol. Do you have a lot of instances where you or your friend or even someone in class says something, and it was exactly what you were thinking, or what you were going to say? Or perhaps you give the teacher an answer and you don't know where it came from?
It sounds like you have the ability to read thoughts, but that you are unaware that you are doing so and the thoughts register in your mind as your own. I think this is possible, because empaths experience others' emotions as their own, and don't always realise that what they're feeling is coming from someone else.

Well, I can help answer some things, though not fully. As I myself, basicaly I can do something where I go into a persons head (Controlled) and I can see their memeories, though I have not practiced enough to just pick the memories whenever I want. The memories come out in words almost as if I was thinkin' the memory or something. It's strange. But I don't know what to call my ability because there is this ability called Mind Hacking where you can go into the persons head and pull out any information you want from their head. Then there is an ability called Soul Reading this is the reading of the soul. You might be a Soul Reader. Which would be the part where you "sense" the other persons feelings rather than feel it.

But for the knowing what people are going to say and what not, I do not know what that is, I mean, I know what Mind Reading is but that doesn't sound like it completely it does partially, the thing where you are talking out what the person says that's strange. But the part where you hear it in your head (that's Mind Reading) and you probably don't know who it is because of the fact that you aren't developed enough in your ability you can develope it more by meditating. Try looking up how to meditate if you don't know how and try all different types of meditations you come across to see which one you like the most and you feel helps the most with strengthening your abilities.

Good Luck! Oh and you should check out my story called: (Mind Hacking, Soul Reading, My Eyes?)
