Real Psychic Experiences

Is This Just Due To Mental Illness

 

I'm 28 year old woman that has had a few experiences in my life that I just can't explain. About 5 years ago it started I got paralyzed states while in bed where I'm awake but I can't move, I can see but can't speak this has happen a few times. Once I heard a argument so clear that I wanted to rush to help and I wasn't dreaming but couldn't move eventually I managed to get out my state rush to the door, I open it and there was no one there. I ask my neighbors about the argument and they never heard anything, I live in a block of flats.

I also 5 years ago had a dream that I felt I was being dragged from my bed I was in a child position and this white woman was dragging me up but I fought it. I have dreams about tornadoes and flooding I even dreamt when in England the caravans were upturned before it happen, I have very vivid dreams about places and people I haven't seen but guess that happens a lot to people.

The most upsetting thing is hearing voices and seeing shadows I'm on medication which does help control the voices but I used to hear them outside my head the were threatening ones and nice ones. It follow me every where I went. It stopped now due to medication but I still get weird dreams. The shadow I saw once was black and I said the hail Mary prayer I'm not that religious but I know that keeps them away if it happens. I also used to see shadows holding a gun this happen last year. I know medication has help me so I know its due to mental illness but sometimes I can't help but wonder.

Thank you for your comments I suppose the rational side of me wants to think its mental illness and that it will go because I'm totally scared to be honest.

I contacted a online pyshic that said I had a negative enegry around me but found out she was saying the same to a lot of people, and she was a scam after people money so findig one I can trust woould be hard how do you contact one? I always wanted to see a medium to just to see what they say, but I don't know how to find a geniune one.

Since I have had my son it started he now 5 so the saying I got post natal depression and the other word. But it is weird how now the seems to be enhanced no. Of people experiencing it.

Thank you for not labelling it as mental illness it more to it, my cousin see ghost and is hospitalised all the time, I believe she is seeing them. Theput you on meds and they make you zombied not yourself, I got depression on them aswell as other things but I'm scared to not take them as I don't want to go back to that. But if crystral and stuff work I give it ago and I can't stand the meds.

Mel you are defo not crazy that how I felt, but being on here open your eyes to a lot of things and really helps out alot.

Take care you two xx

I've had many similar experiences. I felt crazy for a very long time and there are moments that I still do, but I've learned to live with this. I hear people say how they wish that they could be psychic and I think to myself no you don't, not if you truly understood what being a psychic/empath meant. Granted there are very awesome moments while having this blessing/curse, but it's hard work and it's draining. Not to mention the fact that most people tend to be afraid of what they don't understand. I've been told I'm crazy, possessed, making up stories, and that I'm psychic. A friend of mine tried twice to perform an exorcism on me. It wasn't pleasant. I've admitted myself into the hospital numerous times in the past hoping that medication would solve these issues, but it never did. At one point I told my doc that I was still seeing and hearing things and he looked at me curiously and said that I should not be having any hallucinations with the medication he had me on. It has never gone away for me and I'm pretty sure it never will. In fact as of late it has become way more intense. People I know that have never had any psychic experiences has started experiencing things within the last few years especially the last 2 or 3. To me something is up with the energy. I don't what exactly, but it just feels different. An awakening maybe?

There is no such thing as mental illness. I hate it when they try to control people like us by saying that everything we see and think and feel is inherently wrong because our brains are not like theirs.

I wouldn't trust the psychiatrists. If you need help coping with your emotions, maybe you should get a psychic and spiritual counselor. There are a lot of nonmedical solutions to too much psychic sensitivity and attacks by demons and spirits. Crystals, herbs, and rituals can all keep them away.

I have a friend that keeps getting attacked at night by unsatisfactory entities. I warned her to, whatever she does, not say anything to her psychologist. I got some crystals to block negative energy and arranged them in a circle around her bed. The problem was mostly fixed. Now I have some sage and holywater, and if they come one more time, I plan to completely cleanse her room.

I don't believe everything you see and hear was due to mental illness. I personally have been on medicine to stop psychosis and although some things stop, I still hear things outside of my head as you explained in your story.

Good luck with the doctor they may put you in hospital but I was in there and after a while got some peace but the meds don't work staright away they take ages to take in and then there's the side effects to with it. Please don't let your father control you like this you can be a lot stronger, the voices I heard I was near sucidal and was hurting myself its hard to be taken over like that but now I'm free of all the negative feelings I had, maybe consellig aswell will help so you can let go of your father influence and get back to your self. I know this site about psychics experinces but sometimes doctors are the way forward if your being controlled so much. Take care xxx

Daughterofthearsonist: Your story won't appear instantly, it has to be approved. The only thing that appears instantly is replies.

How is "he" keeping you from doing things? Why are you letting "him" manipulate you?

"He" cannot do anything to you unless you allow yourself to be controlled like that.
His influence only works because you believe in it and allow yourself to be manipulated. Just go about your life and don't let "him" or any invisible thing control you.

If you know he was... Unstable in life then he will continue to be so for quite some time in death. His influence has long since ended...don't give "him" power over you.

This may seem harsh but it is also possible you did inherit certain tendencies. I will be voted down for daring to mention this but one has to explore all avenues.

Hi I don't know where to begin because new here aswell and wish could help more but if going to doctor they ill tell you inherited what your father has and put you on medication. I am on meds aswell but it defo more spritual, I'm so sorry you lost your father and now is being tormented by him. Maybe naturalscience can help she helped me and others who seem to know more about this have you submitted your story? You be able to get help that way from more wiser people.

You will get comments that will help you find out if you have a connection to your father and why he is doing this. What he tryig to make you do? Saying the hail mary when seeing a shadow worked for me but I don't who it seem to haunt me but you do. Have you been to a medium and see if they can contact your father and see why he is doing this?

If you want to chat I'm here but like I said I'm new to so I am learning a lot more on this site.

Take care xxx

I am German. I do not know which words are meant with "the Hail Mary prayer" - sorry. Seek "Hail Mary prayer" on Google and you will find the words that once helped you.

Wow thank you again for the comments I am learning so much more I am a great beleiver in there being more to the mind then meets the eye and it right doctors can scan your brain so many times like they did to me and not fnd anything, I apparntly have a minor injury to the brain and major stress therefore I become mentally ill and they are happy to put such like on drugs, I'm taking them because it has blocked the negative side of it out but I havn't told them I a still getting converstaion but very quitely now I don't want them to up my meds anymore as they drain you and make you quite ill. Non-believers see it as case of science and how to use chemicals to numb that part of the brain. My cousin also has mental heath problems or so they say as she actually see ghosts, how can they explain that?

I definatly put this to my project thank you so much.

All the best guys

The fact that medication suppresses hearing of "voices that are not real" does not mean that the voices are purely delusional, having no real background at all. More probably you sensed energies of persons that are no longer there when you heard that "imaginary" quarrel as a child. And the auditory "hallucinations" of voices could, at least partially, really be caused by spirits in your special case.

One can suppress, or enhance, nearly every mental power by drugs. Ritalin, as you know, is misused by students to raise their intellectual performance; and psychedelic drugs are in use in some sub-cultures and savage tribes to make ordinary people psychic, or to give them magical powers, and this is not just a superstitious game but can really happen.
Thus the idea that seeing ghosts or hearing voices is only a mind game because it is suppressible by drugs is modern nonsense.

Moreover, you have made the observation that a certain prayer to St Mary chases the "whisperers" away. This is not explicable by faith alone. It means that there is some spiritual component of the hallucination. The spirits that haunted you were of the kind that shuns the name of St Mary.

To explain what I mean with "not explicable by faith" - for those here who childishly think if a prayer is done with faith it will always achieve what it is said for -:
I did mantra-prayers with the most fervent faith during many years to get rid of the fears I was feeling inside, I felt that there was something wrong with me being so apprehensive; but I did not become more courageous at all. The reason for this "failure" was that I had to walk paths in daily life that showed me which kinds of mis-information caused my apprehension. It would have been pointless to just pray them away for I would have remained ignorant of things I had to learn.

Ever had the idea of writing down the prayer that showed to be that powerful and put it into an amulet? I'd do so. I'd procure a St Mary medallion, best would be a blessed one, from Fatima, Lourdes, Guadalupe or Medjugorje, and put the paper with the prayer inside, and wear that, at least during sleep.
No psychiatrist would ever forbid you that. They would think it autosuggestion and hope it to work as a positive mind-game... Well, let them live in their world and keep yours!

Hi,
OBE means out-of-body-experience, but maybe you have already googled that.
The author of this site has the one called astralvoyage.com. Through that one I have actually find this one because I was researching more about the lucid dreaming, and there you can find a lot of information you need.
She has actually become a help for those of us who have had these states or various experiences involuntarily and felt crazy. When you see how many people went through something similar you actually start to accept that you are not a maniac. We are all on the different stage of our spiritual growth and I think it's nice we can all share it and help each other. Well done, AnneV.!
There is also many people who voluntary want to have OBE and astrally travel.

But not everything you can find on the internet will bring you a peace of mind. Especially many of the scientific researches are very disturbing because they are trying to convey the thought that this all doesn't exist and they actually can cause that you will really get mad.
If I would go to see a doctor, without knowing what I already know and I would tell him about my many, many weird experiences and he'd be concerned that there is something wrong with my brain, I would just take the pills to make him happy and would think that I am mentally ill. Or maybe not, I hate chemical drugs. Those pills would help me, certainly, because they are drugs, they interfere with our perceptions, but they would never explain WHY I had those experiences in the first place.

I have a very good sight and when I was a kid I could see the different cells in/through my eyes. I could even be able to draw how they look like, but my GP told me, that I have been developing some eye disorder. So much for the science, then.

I wish you a good luck with your research for college and open mind on your spiritual journey. Xxxxxx

Hello,

I have read your story and I would like to encourage you a bit.

Firstly I was surprised that you are on medication to stop it, but I am not a doctor and I believe it was maybe the only way how to deal with what was so very disturbing for you.

I can't really tell, but I just think some people are more open to these involuntary experiences and can't deal with it, because are not prepared for it yet. I am an example.
I also think that some people can't handle those experiences and can really get paranoid and mentally ill.
I also agree that some emotional stress (as you suggested in the comment to my post) could trigger those things. We always need something more rational to hold on to. But maybe we become too sensitive at some point during our life (soul journey) and open regardless if it is because of some daily life dreadful experience or just spontaneously.

I think you should attune into yourself and love everything what you are, you do and you can.
I would recommend you to read some books about these things (OBE) and you could become more familiar with it and learn how to master it more consciously. You will be more prepared even towards what you could see and encounter "there". Although the unknown is scary, I know this very well.

Personally I think, these spontaneous OBEs are like a wake up calls, to make us realise that there is something more and not just this earthly indulgence or relative troubles and that it all has a deeper meaning.
And I know this will seem very repetitive, many people recommended meditations here to others, but that seems like a way to get into your soul. I am a future yoga teacher, so I know that the regular meditation is a powerful tool, but unfortunately I myself don't dedicate time to it often. Fortunately, I can go through the meditative states when I create. I like painting and drawing. I have noticed in your bio you mentioned drawing, so there is nothing stopping you.

Head up and enjoy playing with your kittens and kids, that's sort of a meditation, too.

Love and blessings

M.

what your describing is called sleep paralysis, its a mind awake body asleep state, and happens to ensure that we do not act out our dreams when we are in a deep sleep. Some people stay fully conscious while this happens, and more ofter then not have a negative experience.

I believe it goes deeper then that, mainly because where it eventually led me, but I just wanted to share that.i'm just going to leave it at that for now.

Hi!
I've had these dream paralysis or night terror states a lot during my life as well. I think there are scientific explanations as well, but I have experienced it very strong in times when I've had other things happening to me as well... My friend gave me an advice that when it happens, especially if there's an unwelcome entity around you should try to picture yourself surrounded by a resonating white light in the same way as when protecting yourself from outside energies:).
I have had this also as a really sinking feeling where I cannot stay awake even though I try to and my eyes just go shut and sometimes there are weird noise as well even though I feel I'm awake. It's terrible when it happens but I kind of enjoy analyzing it afterwards 😉

I had a similar thing happen when I was little but discovered it was due to tension I experienced because my parents fought frequently.

Do you suffer from breathing problems? Allergies? Sometimes something like that can manifest into something scary like that.
