Real Psychic Experiences

Seeing The Dark, In The Dark


I am somewhat of an empiricist. I need to see things to believe them, and there are things that I have seen that I struggle to understand. When I am in a relaxed state, but fully conscious and aware of my surroundings (usually when I'm readying myself for sleep, lying still, on my back, in the dark) my thoughts often 'zone-out' and its as if I can see quite vividly from out of my forehead. To be more accurate, it feels like my eyes and my mind merge to become the one sensory organ. I am able to shift my perceptions from one area of my mind to another, and this feels like rows of cognition, as if it were rows of seats in a movie theatre, with a picture screen for each row of seats. I hope that makes sense.

At times when I'm laying on my back in the dark, I am unable to determine whether my eyes are open or closed. I have to blink to confirm it. Sometimes it's as if I can see through my eyelids. I can see dark shapes, or shadows swirling all around my bedroom in the darkness. I don't have to strain to see these. They seem to be conscious of the fact I am aware of their presence. At times they seem sinister, but most of the time just benevolently curious of my ability to perceive them. When I maintain my gaze, they often loom and get right in my face. The sensation is an adrenaline rush that sometimes frightens me. I'm training myself to not be fearful, though it is difficult.

Sometimes my thoughts are invaded by involuntary images; thoughts that I did not consciously manifest. Visions if you would name them so. I have seen faces, cast in blue light. From time to time I am able to close my eyes and envision my third eye, and it is a like an eddy of electric purple and blue colours. Once I saw a void, like a doorway, and in the middle of this doorway was the omega symbol, illuminated. This particular vision was before my very eyes and it was not dark at all.

I used to, if I passively focused when 'zoned out', be able to see a point of light in between my peripheral and direct line of vision that would disappear as soon as I attempted to cast my eyes directly on it. Now I am able to see whole constellations of these points of light. Its as though I'm staring through my ceiling and looking at the midnight sky fall of stars.

I seem to have episodes of rapid-eye-movement while I'm fully conscious, something I can't 'turn off' when it happens. My mind is constantly active and I remember nearly all of my dreams. I have memories that are fantastic, but seem to real to be figments of my imagination.

I have a lot more to say, but I'm interested in a response or two before I share any further. J

i'm sometimes ucertain if I'd be safer with my eyes opened or closed. Then I start to think of what goes on when I'm asleep and it scares the crap out of me. Lol

This may not be anything, but when I am driving after classes at night I sometimes feel watched sometimes I think I see shadows moving in the night... As if following me in my car... To me honest it scares me I even feel the same... Energy for lack of a better word in my house and bed room... Sometimes I'm scared to close my eyes at night. I feel like that is what they are waiting on, but to my knowlge nothing has happened.

I was just wondering... Is there anything significant about corridors and hallways? I always feel a great deal of attention on me coming from the hallway, and when I peer into the area I expect to see something or someone.

i know exactly what you mean. There must be more than 'this'. Why wouldn't there be? A culmination of emotions, experiences and knowledge to disappear for what purpose? Seems like a waste to me if that were the case.:)

Dear Azrael,

A gold Aura means:
"The color of enlightenment and divine protection. When seen within the aura, it says that the person is being guided by their highest good. It is divine guidance. Protection, wisdom, inner knowledge, spiritual mind, intuitive thinker."

I have read that you should not turn to priests, gurus, preachers, etc. If they do not have a gold aura around them. That makes a lot of sense.

"What is my purpose?" "What am I doing here?" "Why am I living THIS life?"

I have asked those questions myself as well, and still continue to do so. My Spirit Guides always seem to answer me with intriguing statements when I do...😁

As a young girl, I always thought that there MUST be more to this world. It just can't be "this". I wonder if you know what I mean 😊

When I get odd dreams and visions, I write them down or cement them into my mind; because I know that they are important and they will come together in the future. Many already have. It's amazing!

I recommend that you do as well, because you never know when it will come together.

As for the meaning of 1111:
"111, 1111 - These signs indicate that your thoughts are correct for the new cycle of your life and they are on your Spiritual Path. Continue with and follow these, as these thoughts relate to a new cycle in your life that is on your Spiritual Path."

As for 1234:
"1234, 234, 456 - If you are repeatedly seeing ascending number sequences such as 1234, this is a sign from your Spirit Guides that these are progressive thoughts. You will see this sign when thinking about an area of your life that you are concerned about and want to change, or thinking about a particular subject. Seeing this number sequence immediately after these thoughts is a sign that your thoughts are progressive; your life will progress by following these thoughts and you will have your Spirit Guides support in its pursuit."

Also, if you google the meaning of these numbers, you'll get a number of related definitions.

I hope this helps you Azrael,

The shadows concern me somewhat, but my immediate impression of them is that they're fairly harmless. Thankyou MidnightBlueSwan.
I'm not partial to seeing auras Rain, but I once had a conversation with a priest when I was about 13, and saw a golden aura around him. That's the only time I've experienced that particular phenomenon. I can't see my own aura either. My abilities have been slowly evolving as far back as I can remember. I'm now 24 years of age. I am unable to control these 'gifts', and they are fleeting at best. I've always asked myself questions like 'Why am I here?' and 'What's the meaning of life?' I begun asking these questions at a very early age, and I have always felt I was destined for something.
Thankyou LoveHaven, I just may email you. There are definitely times when I need counsel on these matters. I honestly feel I need to develop an understanding of what is going on 'up there'.
I can really relate to your own experiences RougeElegance. There are images that have popped into my mind that can only be described as horrible, and sometimes they won't leave. Really disturbing sometimes. I know this sounds weird, but one particularly noteworthy instance was when I was made witness to how a woman died from strangulation, and the image would not leave. This vision was in blue and came out of nowhere. I have been shaken awake by 'something else' when I became conscious of myself in a dream. I found my deceased brother loitering in one of my dreams. I was dreaming but he was visiting, and I got the distinct impression that I wasn't supposed to noticed him 'really being there'. It was funny.
I always seem to subconsciously look at the clock when it reads 11:11 and 12:34. I feel that the former is more significant than the latter, yet I am unable to place the importance of either numbers.

Beware of the shadows... They may not look like much... But be careful. That is all I can say.

I see what you see in the dark. I developed the ability to see aura about three years ago and since then, I've noticed that I can see an energy field around my body in the dark as well. Try looking at your hand in the dark and let me know if it works for you too ^_^.
I'm also curious how long ago these abilities manifested?

Dear Azrael,

When I read this I was intrigued. You explain what you see very intelligently.

I think I see what you see too...

When my eyes are closed, it is as if I see energy swirling around in forms going through and througout each other... Moving in languid motions and sometimes staying in one place.

At times, flashes of symbols, feelings, smells, people that I've never met, things that I've never seen go before my eyes or flash within my mind. I cannot explain them, but deep within me, I know that they mean something important.

I have moments of rapid-eye movement as well and I cannot explain them. When I am concentrating, it occurs a lot. My reactions are a mixture of enjoyment and perplexity.

My imagination is also very vivid. A lot of the times I am shocked by where my mind goes, by what it thinks, because it is so out of this world.

For those symbols and memories, I believe that you should ask your Higher Self what they mean. Especially if you feel that they are important.

I have many more experiences as well, but I'd like to see what you say 😊

RougeElegance ❤
