Death Sense


I'm not quite sure how to start something like this off, but here it goes.

It seems that I have the strange ability to sense death on people. Usually it is activated with some sort of visual or auditory trigger. For example, someone mentioned in conversation, or having spotted someone in a crowd.

It started when I was very young, and has gotten more intense over the years.

I first discovered that something was amiss when I was seven. My mom came to me to tell me that my grandfather had passed away. Before the words left her mouth it felt as if the air in the room went still, and I got those chills down my spine. Everything felt strangely minty (Minty, weird, I know.) This was the exact feeling I had gotten when I felt compelled to give him a bouquet of flowers right before leaving our residence. He had asked what they were for, and I had blurted out "In case I don't see you again."

Granted this is an odd thing for a kid to say, I have no idea why I said it, or gave him the flowers. It just felt right.

I made the connection with what happened. Things have been evolving since then. I began feeling when someone I knew had died. If they were mentioned and I'd think of them, I'd feel a minty void where there used to be some sort of connection (it's really hard to explain). The physical feeling is that of spine tingles, the iron tint of adrenaline on your tongue, and a stillness like nothing else that I've ever felt.

A few times I've predicted the deaths of pets. Once through accidentally interpreting a dream my mom told me, and another through getting the minty feeling and a terrible nosebleed.

There was one experience that really stuck out involving a boy at school. I was walking to class through a crowd of people, and suddenly I saw this boy. I'd probably seen him a hundred different times without really noticing him. However, today was different; he was so apparent that he practically glowed. I got the minty feeling, and the whole stillness thing followed. I didn't know what to think of this, and chalked it up to a bout of anemia and the need to get some iron in my system.

I was wrong. The next day we were informed that that very boy had hung himself.

This was my first visual trigger, and I failed to distinguish it.

Now it's gotten worse. I am predicting deaths.

One day My mom and I were talking about my mom's friend and her son, when suddenly the feeling washed over me like a wave and I began seeing a vision of blood. It was everywhere, but I knew it was all just in my head. I knew, I just knew in my very core that one of them was going to die an awfully bloody death. I told my mom to check on her friend, because something awful was going to happen to her or her son. She was hesitant to believe me, however, her experiences with my Death Sense throughout the years convinced her to check into my claims. Before she got the chance to call her friend, her friend called her. She was calling to inform us that she had cancer and only six months to live.

This was terrible and great news all at once. Bummer because she was dying, but awesome because I had finally seemed to have mastered my death sense. However, parts of her claims made no sense to me. My death sense was too potent for her death to be that long off, and a cancerous death isn't all that bloody usually. So, I urged my mom to go see her as soon as possible. My mom scheduled a trip for the weekend, but she ended up procrastinating it for another week. When she told me this the minty feeling was back in full force. I urged her to go this weekend, and told her that if she didn't, well, she wouldn't get the chance to say goodbye. She insisted that her friend had at least 3 months if not six.

My mom's friend went in for a routine surgery that weekend. The surgery was a fluke and she ended up bleeding out into her lungs. Basically, she drowned on her own blood.

I guess this means that my original prediction was spot on. That's one big unenthusiastic yay for me.

This death sense thing is only one of the odd precog-like abilities that I have, but it is by far the most disturbing.

Once I ran into some sort of entity that seemed death based, because my sense recognized it immediately. I'm still working on figuring out what that was. However, that's a whole different fun story.

I'm not sure if my ability is fate based or not. I'm not sure if I can, or should try to prevent the deaths I feel coming.

I'm 19 now, and have been working on understanding this ability for 12 years. If anyone has any insights, or helpful input it would be greatly appreciated.:)

I've faced it, this is way bigger than I am.

Sorry about the length, I wanted to be thorough.

Hey Slyfive and everyone. I have a notebook where I write down my own experiences, kind of like entries. My parents and some relatives acknowledged this uhm ability (?i still can't grasp it is an ability) of mine. It started when I came back to the place where I grew up because I'm starting college, so its been more than 3 years I'm 19 btw. My family adviced me to stay positive because it helps me coping. It doesn't happen often. But it's becoming strong, like I used to dream it and then now I'll have deja vus and see brief visions. Weird is, I never had any near death experiences like yours guys. I've never been confined in hospitals. I wish someone can help us

I've also suffered from it for a long time. I'm 23 now, and another thing I've noticed is that my "Death Sense" (we should come up with a better name for it... Maybe Necrovoyance? Or Necrotience? Maybe Necrognizance?) extends not only to Death and when a person is or will die, but also to situations where a person may have a near-death experience, or who suffer from a severe illness that will lead to their death or a near death.

"I can try again but transfer someone else's life into another."

I'm not sure you mean it that way but that sounds a whole lot like stealing. If they give it willing ok, but if you take without permission it is rude and a misuse of your powers. You can give your life to others but unless the other person agrees you can't take their energy to fed your love ones. It is wrong and will build bad karma.

Personally I think GOD determines when people die and that no one has the ability but we can ease the suffer of others and make people treasure every moment of life before the person pass on. But like I said eariler, I'm still learning about death...

slyfive, I'm terrified of the idea of "death sense"

I've never had anyone I really loved or care for die before. I know it sounds wierd, I'm 28 and hesitate in putting my full love and protection over most people and then only for a little while unless I see them on a regular basis. Its just too draining long distance for an empath, too many people wanting help, crying suffering, needing things.

My husband's grandfather died January 1st and before that I thought I was being haunted by voices of the dead. I saw people who claimed to be dead family members and pleaded for me to help them. The voices increased whenever I was nearer to Papa and terrified me because I've never experienced dead people talk to me before. They normally just shadows that don't pay me any attention. We just ignore each other. Demons attack me, angels help me out, shadows where just shadows. People I meet and talk to sometimes but most of the time like a busy street in New York or mannhiem, no one paid you much mind if you even pretended to know where you were going and what you were doing and didn't walk like a mark.

There is an old lady at the nursing home I take my kids to visit to teach them about social responsiblity. This lady she talks gibberish most days but one of the other residents told me that she has a death keel that she sings. The same song every time some is about to day. Very soon afterwards someone in the nursing home passes away.

I don't understand it all but I hope you share what you learn and I'm reminded that new experiences can be terrifying even when you thought you couldn't be scared anymore.

Peace, light and love

Yeah, I know. I have given my grandfather three years of my life, and now my other grandfather is not doing well. I'm hoping that I can do this one more time. Give him just one more year, pass the expectations of the doctors. If that happens, then that's my gift. Then, I can try again but transfer someone else's life into another. To see if my power works like that as well.

i am the same as you. You can read my story "i think I died once... Now I can sense death" cause no matter what, I can sense someone going to die, dreams of Death himself, and if someone I know that's going to die I can transfer my life-TIME to that person and they could live for another year or soo... I'm 20 now, I almost forgot my age again, but rest assure, I am the same as you...
