Am I Experiencing Psychic Abilities?


I'm 22 years old and I have been having déjà vu from my dreams for as long as I can remember. It occurs on a weekly basis, if not daily. Its never be anything big or important, just little things, like a conversation with one of my friends or a doodle I see on someone's paper in class. The time between the dream and the déjà vu has been anywhere from 5+ years to 2 days before hand. I don't know if its any special ability or not, but it also isn't the only one I think I may have.

Again, as long as I can remember I have always been able to read someone's personality and have a sense of whether they are a good person or not within minutes of meeting them.

Also, it has been pointed out to me many times by many different people my strong connection with animals. My family has always found it odd and amusing how I could go up to a feral cat and pick it up and love on it like it was a big fat house cat, or the first time meeting my late stepfather's guard dog, who would try to attack anyone that came near him, I was able to get him to lay on his back and rub his belly within 5 minutes.

About 5 years ago I started seeing shadow people, I don't know if that's due to any ability or if they just like to show up around me.

Also, I have always known when something bad was going to happen to someone I care about, my mom and great grandma have always been able to as well.

When I was about 5 years old I was staying at my great grandma's house until my mom could pick me up when she got off of work. I just randomly started crying and my great grandma asked me what was wrong, I told her that my mom had just been in a car accident and 5 minutes after I told her what was wrong my mom called and said she was going to be late because someone had ran a red light and hit her in an intersection.

Fast forward 6 years, My mom was going to AA meetings to support a friend of hers and she generally took me along to keep an eye on me and make sure I did my homework. One night I continually begged her not to go to the meeting, and when she asked me why I told her that there was going to be a very bad man there, but of course she didn't listen to me. She ended up in a relationship with the bad man. He was a drug addict and was physically and mentally abusive to both of us and threatened to kill my mother and I on more than one occasion and went so far as to hire someone to kill us both. Fortunately for me and my mom, the guy the bad man paid to kill us ended up protecting us from the bad man. There have been quite a few more instances where I knew something bad was going to happen, but I couldn't quite pin point what.

I think I may have some abilities but I'm not really sure, so I'm wondering what other people's, who have more knowledge of the subject, think of my prospective abilities, what they are, and if I have them, how to develop them.

I have first got to say that the reason I have not been HERE sooner is mainly the screen name. Kinda..."Ifish", if you know what I mean.
Sometimes a screen name says much more than the story itself.
What I think you have going on here is a mixture of things. Some of them purely natural (though they MAY seem Para-natural) and others not so much.
Animals are very perceptive (I am not talking "supernatural", I am talking animal behavior here) and can sense the intent of humans rather well. I knew of a Massif that was ill treated, and only fed on fresh, raw meat provided by his owner (Real Jerk HE was) and "played" with a bat across the back so frequently that the poor dog thought to "play" was to rip something literally to shreds. As luck would have it, a small group of very young children were walking by and the dog lunged. Thank Creator she was on a log chain and did not break it. The children all scattered save for one little boy. He walked right up to the fence, and stuck his hand in as adults from ALL directions came running and shouting.
That Massif actually sat back on her haunches, whined a bit and "nudged" her nose up to the tiny hand.
She did nothing.
That little boy grew up to be what the world would think was nothing "spectacular" save for a really good lawyer. The dog just KNEW he would not hurt her.
The connection that you had with your Mother at the age of five, is really a "love connection". There are many people who have this ability with ones they love.
Reading someones personality, or their "bad" or goodness is really more in INTUITION than Empathy.
Empathy is the ability to FEEL as someone else does, while at the same time possessing YOUR OWN. It does NOT mean that you ONLY "carry" theirs. YOURS are still present, they are just a bit repressed as you experience the flashes of Empathy.
I can not really touch on your déjà vu, as the examples you gave could very well have been "lead" by preexisting situations. Seeing someone ELSE doodle much the same thing before your dream, and not recalling it would be an example of that. So, I can not really say.
I apologise for the length of this post, but much of this, COULD be mainly a very intuitive nature.
Thank you.

...don't know how to respond to any of this, but I'm guna go out on a limb here, and say that you're physcic. I too, have a connection with animals. Although, animals do try to communicate with me, but not with words - actions. Like...ok, it's really hard to explain, but the point is, don't give up, stay away from odd shadows, and keep faith in what you can do, plus, when in doubt, you could always speak to God... Or google it, whatever works, right? 😉

Well, cool...I...I have a way with animals too, but all my abilities are mildly weak unfortunately... I don't know much about shadow people but I know I do have ver mild premonitions, I hope like youi can develop them... And also at same time, we could sorta work together seeing as just can't place my abilities because it's like a dose of this and that, a tiny mix, but I'd like to know which one is my better ability... And siorry if this is random...

I'm trying to learn how to communicate with my dog and parakeets. I think if I learn how to speak the forgotten tongue (the language spoken before the tower of Babel and used to create the Earth and its foundations, the language still spoken by God and angels in Heaven and used to create other worlds that people wander in dreams too)

If I could learn that and teach the parakeets it they could communicate verbally to those who knew the language. Do you think it's possible?

ghostgirl took the words out of my mouth.

She is right though, only a few people have that ability.

I think it's best for you to trust your abilities, especially since they seem to help you avoid horrible situations.

You're more than likely an empath and a psychic. Your connection with animals is an ability that quite a few people have. Have you ever tried talking to the animals? Animals can understand me, but I can't understand them, at least not fully.

Blessed be
Lolli ❤

Humans are animals, but they cause wars, unnessicary deaths I must watch, and global warming. Other animals don't.
So, as far as I'm concerned, you are an empath and that helps you to understand and communicate with living creatures in general.
The same goes for me, though you are stronger in your abilities. I usually see or feel things that don't involve anyone close to me, and there is nothing I can do about them.
Shadows may be people from your past, or spirits. They usually aren't there to hurt you.
I'm glad to hear you and your mom are both all right, that someone helped you out of that situation. Trust your instincts.

[at] AnandaHya, I want to learn how to develop these abilities for both understanding and power because I believe that understanding and power go hand in hand in these matters, but be rest assured that I am neither selfish or greedy, I have actually been accused of being too giving and selfless. I want to develop the power so that the images and feelings become clearer and sharper to me so I can better understand them, though in some instances they have been painfully clear. And on a side note I'm not a man lol.

[at] Rashidah, I did not assume better developing psychic abilities was an overnight process, as with all things I understand it takes patience, persistence, and practice. I'm just not sure about how to start better developing them.

[at] Govinda, thank you for the website, I'll be sure to bookmark it in the event that the shadow people become bothersome as opposed to just being around.

[at] Darkstar, I'm not certain about the shadow people being attracted to me for being an empath, mainly because what I've mainly read about empath's are that in addition to knowing what people are feeling they share the same emotions as the other people. For me, I know if they're generally a good or bad person and what they're feeling but I don't share the same emotions. I have never noticed a change in my emotions when I see shadow people other than a heightened curiosity.

lalalala sorry is it my turn?

What is your motive for wanting to develop your abilities?

Understanding or power? If it is power then listen to their advice becuase what I say won't affect you.

But if you just want to understand, have wisdom to use what I believe God has given to you, then I wouldn't wander off the path He has set for you. I don't know you, but from your story, it sounds a lot like my own life. I've experienced the same thing, except I've waken up in the hospital three times as a kid for pneumonia. Its eerie because I don't remember anything but being really sick. Lots of dreams and waking up in the hospital. The shadows may be a lot of things: angels, demons, ghost, people astral projecting, the list goes on. If you are a praying man: pray for discernment and wisdom to know what to do with this knowledge. Don't seek after things that aren't freely given to you. Its fine to improve on your natural talent, but there is a line between light and dark forces. The main thing that separates them is greed and selfishness to the harm of the whole. Like cancer in the human body, what do you think happens to a being that grows out of its natural bounds and becomes a devourer of men?

Cultivating psychic abilities are not overnight processes.

There are no short cuts. It is hard work.

Ok - COOL. Can someone tell me how to cultivate psychic abilities, is there any way other than meditation which I already do?

Also for interests sake and maybe this will even help you since you have such a high level of supernatural activity surrounding you. But I found this page and it seems really nice:

You have a lot of abilities first off you have precog dreams, that's why you get the sense of deja vu. Secondly your an emapthy of some level thus you can tell if someone is good or bad. The third one is claircongianze (butchered the spelling), which is basically knowing something before it happens.

The reason your seeing shadows is that they are attracted to you, espically since you are an empathy. Being as such it is easier for them to come to you to induce an emotion and feed off of it.

As for the animals I'm not for sure.
