Real Psychic Experiences



I have a very interesting predicament. I have a horrible, messed up sense of direction! It's the strangest thing, and I can't for the life of me describe why this happens!

Let me give an example: Say I am in a mall with a few friends. They tell me to wait somewhere while they go off to look at some dumb, hot designer product that I find dis-interesting. They say they'll be right back!

So I wait, and we'll say fifteen minutes pass. I start getting mighty anxious, but I tell myself it's ok. A little while more passes, and I decide to go after them; instead of going in the direction I saw them go, I for some reason go the opposite direction and get myself lost, and I end up at the exact opposite end of the building from them!

My parents would conduct tests very similar to this when I was little. They'd turn a corner or walk nonchalantly behind a pillar and wait to see what direction I'd go in, and for some insane reason, I would go in the exact opposite direction from them. The other kids I was with would always tell me that they were the other way, the right way! But I would say "No, they're this way. I can feel it."

I still have this problem! It's like I had some weird reverse compass implanted in my subconscious form birth!

In fact, I've developed an intense phobia of getting lost. See the title for what it's called.

Don't blame my parents! They just wanted to test wether I'd ever get it right. They didn't run away or anything! They just secretly watched me go around in circles looking for them when they were right under my nose!

Does this happen to anyone else? Am I a freak of nature? Why does this happen? Comments would be appreciated!

Thanks for reading.

You said ALWAYS wrong, then just take the opposite, if it isn't ALWASYS wrong, then there shouldnt be a problem then you have just a weak sense of direction

Why a weak sense of direction, I think its because you are insecure the insecurer you get the more you question which direction you should take subunconsciously you think you are bad so you would always make the "wrong" desicion so you can reenforce this assumption and take the wrong way., first of all stop thinking about if its right or wrong to take the "wrong" direction (then the fear goes away) it doesn't matter which direction you take, secondly work on your selfworth... So tell urself you do love yourself...
This will improve your life, but it is a seed and seeds need to grow... But it won't cure your sense of direction (and your deeper emotional problems), because everyone walks wrong from time to time (there may be reasons for that too...), unless you are a superpsychic and always go by you intuition because then there won't be any wrong way as you go where you always feel you need to be, (thats if you go by your TRUE feelings)...but that's another story...

Btw I also grew up in austria
Wish you the best

When I go the opposite way, I feel like a force is urging me to go that way. It makes me feel weird, because I always know something is wrong about it... Maybe it's just me, or maybe it's a spirit messing with my head, but for all my life? A spirit messing with my head since I was little? I don't know... 😕

Hahaha I was tempted to say exactly what Eric advised!

There could be a problem with the way your brain processes something here. See a doctor about it.

Otherwise, if you think there is a spiritual explanation, do you mind describing how you feel whilst walking in the opposite direction? For example, do you feel completely in control? Is something urging you to go "this way" instead of "that way"? Sometimes you get the feeling that you should go somewhere, and where you find yourself is not where you expected to end up--but you find that book you were looking for. You meet someone who tells you exactly what you needed to hear. You find the perfect gift for your friend. You get a job offer (this happened to my friend ^^) Do you see where I'm going? It's also a possibility that something is messing with you, particularly if you feel bad about this whole thing.

My advice is go to a doctor first. Also meditate. Meditation will help to clear your mind, and you may just get to the bottom of this.

Hope this helps

Um I don't know what's wrong with you. Some people just have a bad sense of direction. BUT I think I have the cure. When you do seem to be lost. Just go the opposite direction of the way your insincts tell you. For example when your friends left you and you started walking in the wrong direction. Just start a habbit of going the opposite way of being opposite.
