Real Psychic Experiences

Seeing Isn't Believing, Believing Is Seeing


I'm Stefan, and I'm currently on a mission to awaken my abilities.

A few years ago I used to be an atheist and have a closed mind towards religion and miracles, however I did believe in psychics, mediums and life after death. My whole life I've felt different to other people, I tended to shy away and day dream a lot wondering what was wrong with me. I've always been a nice person and chosen to judge people for who they are, rather than appearance etc and not be influenced by gossip etc.

I started to smoke weed and became much more open minded about life, which is when weird, ordinary and the most unexplainable things started to happen (and no, it wasn't the weed). It just kept happening. Things I started to think became true. I'd randomly think about an old song I hadn't heard in years and it'd play later that night on the radio. Or I'd think about an old friend I hadn't seen in a while and randomly bump into them the next day... I started to believe there was a God, or some sort of higher power, or even being psychic. I even started praying when times got hard and it'd work out fine in the end.

A few months ago I started to feel as though there was a presence in my house, like I was being watched. My sister mentioned something to me as well, which was strange. A week later, at night I heard banging coming from the loft, which went from my room all the way to the bathroom and the lights would dim in sync with the bangs.

A week ago I started day dreaming at my wall and seeing very faint static? I had to keep focusing to see it again. I looked it up online and it led me to this website, which is just amazing. Like destiny. Reading through people's experiences has just made me feel so... Connected? I don't feel alone in this world anymore, I feel I have a purpose, but that's not the end of it. My grandma isn't ill, but she's getting old now and I hadn't taken my girl friend round to see her. I felt as though I really needed to on Monday, or something bad was going to happen before she could actually meet her. I did, but I just had this foreboding feeling something bad was going to happen. Early hours on the Tuesday morning, the phone rings and it's my aunty saying an ambulance was coming for my grandma (I was half asleep at the time, I could just make out what was being said on the phone from my dad's reaction). 5 minutes later, I see the blue flashing lights go past my house (my grandma lives just down the street). She didn't die, but I just knew something was going to happen.

Sorry this is like an essay, but that's my story. I'm a strong believer and very open minded to what can happen next. Do you guys have any advice to help me tune into these abilities more?

Cheers, Stefan. <3

Sorry, I didn't realize this wasn't the place to publish my story. I am new here and do not know where to go. My apologies.

Instead of writing a long story because I have a lot of stuff to say, I will explain what I can do.

Here is what I have done/experienced:

Seeing Spirits, A Monster?, Shadow People
Out of body experiences
Slight Psychic Ability

I have recently woken up feeling worried about my mother and on the same night my grand daughter woke up twice saying "Nana is dead". The reason this alarms me is that I dreamed of my fathers death for a whole year before he died. I didn't dream of her death but I did not have good feelings, I felt worried and sad. Does anyone know ways to develop your abilities because of course I would like them to be more predictable or more controllable if possible. I don't know sometimes I feel confused.

Thanks for the advice everyone:)

How do I develop this shield, Rosamarie?
I'll definitely give meditating a go too.
Well, I'd love to be able to talk to my granddads and other family members that have passed and eventually others when I'm used to it so that I can help people.
I've read on here that people have seen demons... I don't think I'm ready for that just yet!
I'd love to develop every ability just to help people to my full potential.

You're right, Lyro. Most of the people I know are too closed minded and expect to see results before they start believing in anything. It's sad really.

Okay, Paymon, I will:)

Thanks again:]

I know this is totally random, but I love your title. I used to say all the time that others wouldn't believe stuff like this unless they saw it, felt it, or experienced it. But it's true that you need to believe in these things, and believe in the things that you can do to be able to do them in the first place.
Blessed be,

Practise! Everything gets easier with practice. Along with being able to see ghosts, you sound like you've got some precognition going on.

What would you like to develop? Would you like to be able to communicate with ghosts and spirits? See the future more clearly? Anything else that takes your fancy? There's lots of kinds of abilities - if you do some more research and find out the techniques and what you'd like to focus on, then practise them, they'll get easier for you. Plus, the more you know, the more you'll find about how to grow and develop.

I was recommended meditation as a means of learning control. Developing the frame of mind in which to exercise abilities actively also helped me, but it's something I can't really talk about since I have a feeling that this learning process is quite subjective.

I also recommend, if you haven't already done so, learning to develop a strong shield. It's not related to your abilities, per se, but it's quite important to avoid being susceptible to anything negative.

I'm sorry I can't help you any more than that - I'm not yet experienced enough.

Best wishes,
