Am I Psychic, Or Is It Just Coincidence?


My name is Eleanor, I'm twenty years old and I'm pretty normal in most instances, but things lately, perhaps within the last four or five years have been a little odd, and well, I can't explain it.

So the story; as I have stated, I'm twenty, and I go to university. These things are pretty normal, but there are things I can't quite explain. I live in Australia, and have a good family, all of which have no gifts, and are very much no nonsense. As such it's only recently that I have begun questioning some of the strange things.

In high school I used to find things running particularly smooth. But the odd thing I found was I knew sometimes what people were going to say, or do before it happened. Sometimes I would have dreams months and months in advance, and then something would happen, pretty much exactly as I had seen it, or conversations were exactly the same. As I didn't keep dream diaries until the start of this year, I shrugged it off as coincidence or weird déjà vu.

Another thing I find weird is that for some reason really disturbed people ALWAYS seem to come to me. I don't know if this is like an aura or just because of my personality. Either way, since I was a kid people just come to me; even those that I have only known for a moment or less than a day and talk to me about their problems.

Another thing is that I can usually guess what somebody is thinking before they say it, again it could be just intuition, but I got a friend to test me, and well, I got about 80 percent of them right.

.though the one on the computer I couldn't really guess properly.

I also sometimes see shadows and shapes, and sometimes can feel if something bad will happen. I was at university one day, and well, sad story, but I felt really sick all of a sudden, and my head felt all weightless. Anyway I went outside, and walked towards the front building towards the university, and there were these people crowded around a building to the side of the university, ignoring it, I went to the building I was heading and a lady started yelling to a security officer, that a boy had just jumped from the building and was dead.

Another odd thing that has happened was when I was a kid, (about 6) I noticed this strange black shape on my door, and started freaking out for no reason, it was where this funny little crystal charm and dream catcher was. I don't know why I was so scared, I have never been afraid of the dark at all, not even as a kid.

Anyway I just wanted to know anybody's opinion. Am I just good at reading people, or is this just coincidence. If so, could you perhaps recommend some things I could do to try and either enhance these abilities, or some other tests I could try?

I have the same experiences as you. They've been like this ever since I can remember and I'm only 13. I'm just saying I'm glad I'm not the only one 😊

I have had similar experiences to you, but any computer tests or anything where I have to consciously try and predict something I fail miserably at. I usually have it just kind of pop into my head ie one day it just popped into my head, like not some dramatic event but 'what if on this road ahead a girl had been knocked off her bike by a car and was hiurt' along with a picture of this right after it happened (no ambulances etc people standing around her) and a block or so later that actual image was there on the road I was driving.

I wish I had a way to find out whether there is any purpose or reason to the things that I have dreamed or felt or not. I'm a logical person and most people would think me the last to be into anything like this. I have also found that I often dream of disasters and so on, and the dreams can be very compelling.

I feel like there are times when I feel something is goign to happen, and when it does I know that was 'it' but its not specific. However often its also not explainable - anyone know what I mean?

By the way - while I realize many hate text talk and I personally don't like it when its almost illegible, but why is it actually not allowed? For those of us with repetitive strain injuries from typing, it is helpful to use some short hand to minimise the aggravation of that. (I just got an error and wasn't allowed to posttill corrected - for shortening people to a 3 letter acronym)

I was wondering about your crystal charm and dream catcher. I know that specific stones are used in meditation as well as channeling stones. What exactly was your crystal charm made out of or what kind of stone is it. You should look into the dream catcher lore, Native Americans are very spiritual and sometimes looking into their history could help figure out some questions to your answers. If a dream catcher catches bad dreams, why not black spirits that does you harm. Just a theory.

Just a side note from my experiences. If you are gifted you have to be careful with how much you absorb from people. Helping people that come to you is great, but their problems and what you are feeling from them can leave you with a bunch of negative energy. Personally if I take in to much I get sick and I get acne on my face. I use meditation as a sort of cleansing. There are other ways to cleanse yourself, but I don't use them. You just have to find out what works for you. Once again good luck.

It sounds like you're psychic. I've had similar things happen to me but I read people specifically. Calling it psychic to me seems wrong cause it's not seeing the future or anything it's more of seeing someone... Hard to explain.
Also having disturbed people come to you is actually normal. It depends on the type of psychic you are, but some types get that. You bring comfort to them.
And beware the shadows.

i have the same exact thing. Like, everything. I have the dreams, I have the feelings, I can tell what people are going to say, I have dejavu constantly, I can tell what people are thinking, I can see shapes and figures, everything. Some people think I am psycic, but I'm still trying to figure out myself. But to answer your question, I think you are gifted.

Hi Eleanor,
It sounds like you have a really strong intuition and having that strength is really vital in trying to improve upon and enhancing your abilities. It sounds like you could be empathic. The computer tests probably don't prove to be 100% accurate, I would recommend trying to find a friend who would be willing to help you determine how far your abilities extend. You could do what you said you did before getting your friend to test you. Try working with a simple deck of cards and guessing what card will show up when you split the deck in half (card somewhat in the middle.) You can practice with the deck of cards to enhance your abilities.
I'm like you in some ways, I have daydreams of things that will happen months before they do. You should definitely try to write down all the dreams you have that way you can verify later if they came true or if it was just a deja vu.
Having 'disturbed' people coming to you to talk about their problems probably isn't as much related to your abilities. They might be attracted to your personality or trust you because your empathic and you can understand their situations maybe better than most people.
In terms of the black shape you saw it could've been a negative energy that you found frightening and thus fore became afraid of it.
Your intuition gives you the ability to read people. Trusting your gut feeling is probably the most important part in trying to enhance the abilities you have. I would recommend testing yourself with friends or family members if you can. Otherwise one new ability that might come easily for you is reading auras. It would help you better interpret and read people like you say you can. It might tie everything together for you and you'd become more accurate because you could see what they were going to say, and what their energy is like so you could read their emotions as well.
I wish you luck.

My guess is that you are subconsciously keying in on psychic phenomena... Whether or not you have psychic abilities is trivial... As all minds possess a doorway to the unknown.

That said, beware the shadows.

You seem similar to me, I also seen shapes when I was about 5 or 6 now I'm 28 but like you am unsure of what all this is. I find a lot of coincidences in my life. But I have been told there is no such thing as coincidences. I started drinking heavily at 23 and a lot of things that happen to me have stop't. Apart from lucid dreaming. Not drinking now though, and have experienced what I think was astral projection.

omg I have has similar experiences. Also when I was really young, I think 3 or 4 I saw a shadow person (some guy in a black outfit, and maybe a top hat, don't quite remember) but I freaked out, parents came and calmed me down. And what's really strange, is when I think back on that event I'm like looking at myself, parents holding me, like I'm present in that time frame or something loll.

I don't think its a coincidence, I think that you may be gifted. I have experienced a lot of the things you have, especially with the shadows and dreams. My advice to you is to try and realize what is going on around you everytime you get into one of the mentioned situations. After that you can start to see what the triggers for your abilities are. Then you should practice. The thing with your friend is a really great way to advance. Good luck with everything.
