Real Psychic Experiences

A Different Kind Of Reading


For a long time, I have felt like I am different from the average person. I don't exactly know how or why, but I do. Recently, I have taken some of my biggest and most memorable experiences and tried to decide what they all had in common. I found that they all had to do with knowing something I shouldn't have, getting a feeling that something was going to happen, and/or getting emotions that I don't think belonged to me. But on a day to day basis, I found that almost all of the above happen. Mainly knowing things and getting emotions. But that's not all. Normally, when I meet someone new, I instantly form an opinion of them. Later on, my opinions or thoughts about them get proven correct. I just tend to know things. (Things about people, places, events, etc.) The easiest way to explain it is that I read people. But I don't consciously do it. It just happens. I just know. On another note, people's emotions are a very real thing for me. The emotions of others seem to, at times, become mine. I just look at someone or stand near them and just know how they feel (or I get a general idea). This seems to also happen with physical presences. When someone is in or close enough to my "bubble" I can literally feel them. Sometimes it comes with a kind of heat. Also, I feel as though I am harder to read than other people. For example, the things I just know about other people, it is like it would be harder to just know things about me. But when I talk to people, especially people I just know things about, they seem to notice a difference about me. Does this have to do with an ability? They don't really know how I am different; they just tend to sense an overall difference. Because of all this, I decided to do some research. I found that if you take clairsentience and claircognizance and put them together, they seem to fit me perfectly. But, I could be wrong. Another opinion and point of view would be great. I am extremely sorry if I haven't given enough to go on, but I am trying to keep it short and non-rambling.

Overall, I know that I am different, but as to how, I am a little lost. Also, being this way without know anyone who is also different, becomes a little hard. It would be nice to be able to compare notes, so to speak. I thank you for reading all of this and having the patience to do so. Comments are welcome. I would love to receive some feedback.

P.S. I don't consciously do whatever it is that I do. Literally, it just happens. Normally, I don't even realize it until afterwards. Also, I get headaches practically every day (this started in 8th grade and I know that it is not a medical issue). Do they have to do with anything?

Hi Guardian--

How are you doing now?

Every person has a little bit of "psychic" in them; how it manifests seems to simply be a matter of their openness and awareness.

You wouldn't happen to be in or around Cobb County, would you? The energy around there has been stirring teens heavily for a couple of decades. Just wondering...

Hello there,
I understand a lot of what your going through. People have a tendency to go along with already set efinitions, though there is always the possibility for a new category of psychic abilities, unfortunantly skeptics, and logical people don't always agree. I do often feel different myself. I seem to know things I shouldn't, I am a sore thumb in highschool, and people are drawn to me. I just want to collapse. I am used to getting my daily energy to function; by copying anothers passion or emotion. I don't know how to control it, it is bad as well. I get severly light headed when walking in school halls. I want to collapse, I want to cry, I want to sleep, I feel all sorts. I know its not me, I can be secure or think clearly. I am popular, since people like to bring me their problems. The point I am getting at, is with everything going on, I find that music helps soothe or lighten "the load" sometimes. Although not completely, and you'd have to fing what connects with you, calms you. I find that depressing music, about lost love, or sorrow help at times, as well has music about happiness, no worries (carefree) help to. Just find something you relate to personally, in which you can find your own meaning to it. See if it helps any at all. I sleep with music, since I live in a house of 11-13, depends on the days. It helps me block out everyone that is still up, as well as keeps my mind from wondering. It may not work for everyone, but its worth a try.:] I hope I helped a little at least.

Hi everyone and thank you for commenting. Well I am in high school now, but yes I started getting headaches in 8th grade. I have always felt different from those around me, but it is something that I have learned to deal with. But the possiblity of being "psychic" in fairly new to me.

My name is Elizabeth.
I just got out of 8th grade going into grade 9. I don't get it. Because the same thing has kind of been happening to me. And I also get dreams alot. Then they come true after awhile. It seems like everyone's stories about their ablities stated while they were in 8th grade. So did mine. Everyone's seems to get stronger as years go by.

Hi I just read your story. And I also feel the same way. I cried when I read it 😭. I thought I was alone in this world. I have also felt a seperation from others. I never knew why?. I feel peoples emotion, I just sence things more than others. I don't have a lot of friends, because I always have to sence them, and its mostly negative. So I separate my self from people, and I am separated. Its hard to explaine. Sometimes I wish I couldn't feel anything, it would be more easy, but I know it must be a gift, and in the end I am happy that I sense peoples emotions.
I just want to say" that you are not alone. You can emaile me if you like.
Sorry my english 😕

hi there,
So I just read your story and I know what you mean. I am the same way. Ever since 8th grade I have had the same thing. I can feel peoples emotions but I do not mean to but I always know how someone feels. It is sort of confusing because I never really feel normal I always feel a separation between me and other people and I think I am starting to figure out why. I think it is a kind if ESP where instead of reading minds or thoughts we can read emotions but instead of trying to read emotions it just sort of happens. Sort of like a medium.
