Sensing People Or Events


I've experienced deja vu since I was about 5. I would watch events unfolding and realize I had experienced them before. I learned as a teen that this was deja vu and not something everyone else experienced. I played games and would try to recollect the deja vu as soon as I saw it unfolding and was able to stay a few seconds to minutes ahead of the actual event. I have a daughter and son. When my daughter was about 10, she started telling me how she would experience something that had already happened. Hmmm, is this skill hereditary?

As I got older, I found I got instant reactions to people I met. A sense of whether they were good or bad. I thought it was intuition but found I would get a sense of someone being a "bad" person when no one thought that and there was no logical reason for me to either. Later, sometimes weeks or months, an event would prove me correct and usually everyone else would be shocked.

Most recently, in the last 4 to 5 years, I started getting strong feelings or even thoughts that popped in my head like I failed a test, date for prom, fight with a friend, or just feelings of sadness, confusion, listlessness, happiness, etc. I would pick up my daughter or get a call and the thoughts or emotions would be from something that happened with her. I guess they're premonitions? I seem to "feel" other people's emotional states but nothing like I do with my daughter. I do not get the intense sensing with my son or husband. She really affects me with highs and lows. I'm like an emotional meter for my daughter and this is a real roller coaster with a teen.

Recently, I've had some very strong, negative feelings surrounding her. Through subtle questions, I was able to figure out she was fine but the feelings persisted to the point of making me sick to my stomach and extremely listless. I starting noticing that whenever her boyfriend came over the feelings increased. I started to think he had done something and finally talked to my daughter but she did not see any changes going on.

When I get these feelings, they clear up in minutes or a few days. They can be sad or happy. This was the first time I have had anything so intense and long lasting (over a week). I've lost 10 pounds from lack of sleep and appetite. Each day I seemed to hone in a little closer to the cause but cannot pinpoint "what" it is. It's gone from my daughter, to her boyfriend, to someone or thing negative around him. I just feel someone bad or wrong is around him and of course what can I say without coming across as a nut. I'm also shocked that this is now occurring with him and can only think that it is channeling through my daughter. Because it is all so vague, I've stopped saying anything to my daughter so not to stress her too. But my daughter has pointed out that I get these feelings and I'm never wrong. Fortunately, it seems to be easing off and I am less stressed but still very preoccupied.

So what do I do with such vague details? Just tell people to be careful? My friend thinks I need to sharpen this skill so that I can be more effective. I would love to know how to do this only because I seem to be getting more sensitive not less. And now with this experience, I feel very vulnerable as it has been very consuming and I have no way to stop it or understand it. So I feel the best thing is to understand it. It has been a very out of control experience. Does anyone know how to get a handle on this?

Hi Tweety,

In response to your question: 'So how do I know if a random thought is popping into my head or an actual vision?' and 'I only seem to know AFTER it is validated and some have not been'... This is very common. It happens over and over, until you think, how many more times, but with patience the learning points unfold very clearly, as your Master Guide is helping you to learn to recognise what is a vision through simple repetition, but with similar images/overlapping themes, new images and the same themes or totally different images and themes... There will usually be repeated symbols or themes, even if only small on some occasions, so you can see the thread that is part of the build up of knowledge, like having a repertoire of dreams... Make sure you record them, won't you? This is really the only way you can stand back from them and be objective, so you can clearly draw out their themes and structure and not get swamped in the sheer number of dreams you are having and not see anything clearly, hence feel you are not learning anything from them.

As I say the repetition factor is to get you to be able to recognise what you are being shown and start to understand it before it has happened. I am a naturally impatient person and this was why I failed to see this lesson for a while. When I eventually did I realise the significance of the information, so I didn't dismiss it any more as something random.

The other thing is: you really need to focus on how you felt when you saw something - this sounds so simple, but in reality takes a lot of practice to notice... I used to blindly blunder through my life, now I take the time to notice what is really going on around me, the bird sat on my hedge, the insect crawling across the floor in a busy high street - I do keep my eyes on the traffic and cyclists!:-) - but what I am saying is: when we feel ordinarily, we usually have twenty other things going on including in our heads at the same time...! But to notice your psychic feelings, which are on a higher level than that means tuning in to your higher consciousness..., but before I start sounding lofty and pretentious, it is the connection with your Master Guide - seen or unseen - that grows this aspect of your psychic-emotional pallet. I call it listening with my emotions, to what the image is telling me... Images are actually rarely random, but when they are fuzzy or even seem nonsensical, that in itself is often useful information about the state of mind you are in.

Ultimately, evidence that it is not just random is fact that it should be 'become clear to you' - the image may look hazy, grainy, may even seem unclear - that does not mean the message is random. Random take on a similar argument to coincidence...! Oh boy, not going there too much, but nothing is without reason, analytical and boring as that may sound.

The clear part is that 'lightbulb' moment when you say something like: "Ah - I get it... God that's what it meant!" Yes, this may occur after the event, and is often frustrating... It was to me also but it is a necessary stage in development, before you get to the knowing and understanding the images/information and being able to act on them before the event, say if it is a life-saving piece of information or an avoid-danger premonition. In short, it takes practice... Sorry if that sound patronising, it's not meant to - but it points to two things in the main: patience is critical and TRUSTING your gut instincts, so they become one with the information coming through in your dreams and visions.

Sometimes we also dismiss things through lack of confidence in our ability and ourselves to recognise something that often turns out to be more obvious than we realised. As we grow in confidence, that confidence allows us to blossom so we can assert prior to the event happening, what we have seen... That's why I think writing things down is so important... Because each time we do, we provide proof to ourselves of what we knew before the event and stop that all important doubting that keeps us from believing we do understand and know what it is we have prior sensed or scene.

once I dremt about my friend alex scootering down a hill and she was barefooted so she couldn't push the brakes and she broke her foot so the next day I told her and that day we got together to ride on like bikes and stuff and she broke her foot... And then I was the one in the sspot light because I even told her it was going to happen.

One time I had a dream where all I could see was smoke and someone with blonda hair so I was telling this dream to some people on my bus and that day my best friend juliess house burnt down. After that I had to sware to her I would tell her any dream I had bout her or someone she knew.

Of course! There are far too many misconceptions about meditation. You don't have to stop all you thoughts, or sit in a lotus position. You need to be totally comfortable, whether that's sitting in your favourite chair, lying down on a bed, or going out into the garden. Meditation is just about focusing your mind on something. It could be counting, or breathing, or an affirmation... Or you can visualise something, if you're a more visual person.
And you certainly can practice meditation while walking, painting... I tend to meditate on the bus. ^^
Most people find it hard to meditate while doing something else, though, because it's easier to get distracted--there's a difference between meditating (focusing your mind on one thing) and day dreaming (letting your mind wander).
Try out a few different things and see what works for you. And don't worry, you'll get it--if a Gemini can learn to meditate, anyone can!

Best wishes

Thank you both... Trying to meditate by doing things that relax and ground me makes more sense and sitting still in a room seems to stress me more than anything. Patience should be my mantra... It's what I lack the most of. So slow down and let it come to me instead of trying to grab or chase it down, right?

I agree with PsychicAngel on this one.
Meditation is always great. I personally find it is also elevating to my soul 😊

Regarding your chakras, I found it best to go with the flow rather than 'try' to open your chakras. Going with the flow gets better results. Everything happen's when it's meant to and anything I tried to take control of wasn't as fruitful - remember you have a Master Guide helping you every step of the way and my MG always took me through things one step at a time - her favourite words are always to slow down! Ie there's no rush. And losing focus is a natural part of the process... I wouldn't worry about that - you're only human - take the pressure off yourself - it can be a very emotional experience. My opinion is that our gifts make us inevitably a lot more sensitive people, so we will feel things a lot more keenly, sometimes very sharply, and waves of strong emotions may at times engulf us.
But I think being kind to ourselves is a big part of being able to be less overwhelmed by the journey that discovering our gifts takes us on - I take lots of breaks and have had to learn not to overanalyse events too much... As this intensifies already intense experiences and it used to cause me to fail to the blatantly obvious learning point/messages etc.

Learning comes more naturally to me now - I find meditation really powerful for calming, grounding and refocusing me but I learned earlier on that sitting still in a room thing is sometimes great but I meed to balance it with doing things I just basically love like enjoying flowers or being around animals - these are all equally, if not more, meditative.

Thank you for all of your support and insight. The initial issue has worked out although not through my abilities. I have come to accept that I do have abilities and it's been an eye opener studying from the books that were recommended. I am having MANY "ah hah" moments gaining clarity about myself and things that have happened in the past and am determined to learn to use them. I also have had several "insights or senses" that have come true and others that I cannot validate. So how do I know if a random thought is popping into my head or an actual vision? I only seem to know AFTER it is validated and some have not been. What I am also having a hard time with is opening my chakras. I think I was able to open the first few and when I reached my heart chakra, it filled me with tears and happiness which overwhelmed me and I lost focus. I have not been able to get there again. 😢 Any suggestions? Thank you.

I get deja vu quite a bit. I can't see what's about to happen. I just get the feeling it's happened before. I thought it happened to everyone. 😕 Appearantly I was wrong. Sometimes the feeling is very strong. Sometimes I even feel that I got the deja vu in the situation too! 😆 Sorry, I wish I could help. Maybe meditating? It calms me down quite easily.

Hi tweety,
If you want to develop it further deja vu is only the start of something much more powerful and much bigger than you could ever imagine. With reading so many popular views on the subject of deja vu I studied it but didn't look at it in any more depth, partly because I didn't want to stand out from the crowd and disagree - now, years on, I don't care about that sort of thing and have since learned, fortunately because I chose to make up my own mind, that deja vu is a tight cousin of premonition. You are pre-experiencing events and the associated feelings of those events that have not yet happened. As this got stronger with me I freaked out - I eventually learned to accept it but that doesn't mean it never stops surprising, even shocking me.

Hmm maybe he has some personal issues, tweety, such as negative patterns of thinking. Perhaps there is some kind of imbalance in his life. For instance, I discovered that my friend's acquaintence, whom I mentioned before, occasionally takes drugs. Drugs mess with your body's chemistry and throw it out of balance, so perhaps that's why I sensed negative energy around her.
I'm not suggesting that your daughter's boyfriend takes drugs, but there may be something else that is throwing his energy off balance. It could be his diet, negative patterns of thinking, alcohol... He may not even realise it. Perhaps this is something that your daughter (if she knows your feelings on the subject) can find out--he may confide in her. ^^
Hope all is well, blessings

Thank you to all for your supportive suggestions and comments. I've purchased some books and started my path to learning how to "tune in" better. I'm already starting to recognize when I am receiving information versus what I thought of as coincidence or random thoughts. The problem with the boyfriend was negative energy surrounding him and not my daughter. I look forward to the day when I can really understand what I'm sensing. 😁

It may seem vague before you tune into it, but the best way to solve this issue around your daughter's boyfriend is to gain insight into the situation. It could be anything that's causing a sudden manifestation/release of negative energies. Like others have said, it could be an entity trying to play with you. It could be that this person is having emotional problems/discharges in their family. Since you say this ability won't leave you, you can tune into it even more and use it to possibly help you gain some information about it. It is opening up more and more everyday. Use it; it's a natural gift! Do not be afraid or doubt it, and this issue will be solved faster than you can know! Good luck!.:D

Love and light to all, and NAMASTE!.:D

These abilities you have are what pertains within all of us humans. All humans are capable of doing these types of things but thanks to organized religion and the government institutions most people are swayed away from unlocking these god like powers that has been bestowed upon us.

Since you can sense negative energy emanating from him then you need to find out what is manifesting it. It could be personal problems or it can be a negative entity that is messing with you guys.

Its okay friend... This is one of the many abilites that we have. Your daughter is a psychic and you have passed it on to her. Do you know where yours came from? When you have these feelngs, just concentrate on who or what it's focused on the most and you'll be able ot figure out exactly what the "problem" is. With controlling yours and daughters emotions, rasie a shield f energy up. That way, if you don't want to feel the negative energy flowing from her or anyone else, it can protect you. ❤ Don't worry too'll have it controlled in no time.

Thank you for all of your perspectives and especially validation that I'm not imagining this. It's hard to put into words or even understand myself but when I relax, as best as I can, and focus on the feelings the negativity does not come FROM him but WITH him (the boyfriend) and seems to have the potential of affecting my daughter. I have no clue how I know this. It has gotten better over the last couple of days. I've considered trying to talk to him to see if I can figure this out but feel that may be interferring. We really like the boyfriend and I'm actually very comfortable with him and somewhat protective of him. Everyone knows about my dejavu but only my daughter knows about my "feelings" and I think I'd just freak him out or worse make him think I'm nuts. I'd really like to sharpen my sensing so I can react more appropriately instead of feeling so controlled by them and lost.

This probably isn't helpful, but I get similar feelings from one of my best friend's acquaintences. I have never liked her, and I don't know why, because, what isn't there about her to like? She's pretty, smart, popular and confident. Yet for some reason I get this kind of dark feeling from her. I told my friend, who suggested anything from my imagination, to jealousy, to feeling threatened. As a mother, people might say you're being a typical mother not liking the boy who is dating your little girl. To some extent I know how you feel ^^ But if you've never been wrong before, then there's noting to suggest you're wrong this time, either. I hope that you discover what's going on.
Best wishes

Nothing is vague its there all you need to do is tune into it. Like you are with your daughter so am I and can relate to the emotional swings. I also went through a similar experience with my daughter so if you are feeling negative emotions surrounding this young man keep your psychic feelers tuned in. Meditation will help you tremendously so try it. If you have questions, my email is posted.

Your daughter is psychic as well:)

I've heard that some abilities can pass down from generation to generation, I think I got my ability to see spirits from my grandmother-who has recently been saying that my grandfather wants her to go with me (my grandfather is dead), and she also claims that she saw death-who happens to look like he comes from an Asian descent. She's 93 and she has a brain tumor. Nobody believes her, but I, secretly, do.

Something may be coming from your daughter. You should ask her questions about her life outside of home. If nothing is affecting your daughter, then I would consult an experienced medium on this site.

Rain, a user here, is very helpful! You should contact her/him at any time.
