A Story of my Strange Abilities


All my life I've been told that I could be whatever I wanted to be. My parents and family would tell me that I would be something extraordinary and great some day. I never thought that maybe it would be a possibility. That I might be "special". I sit here now writing a story that I would never have dreamed to write before. I used to hear about these stories and web sites like this and think of how much bullsh*t they were. I'm not so sure anymore. This is my story.

Let me start at the beginning of all this. When I turned 15 1/2 and got my permit to drive I was with my mother and was driving to get some food. My mom was giving me the third degree and telling me how much she worried about me. She told me that all her life she had these dreams and that they would come true shortly after. She knew that my cousin would be born a twin and that his sister would die during child birth. She said she knew that my other cousin would die in a car crash. She then told me about a dream she had when I was very young. My family was at a church and for some reason they left me behind and realized I was missing on the ride home. I have had this dream as well around the same time she did when I was young. I had a dream that my family left me in a church because I was looking for something. I tried to leave but when I opened the door there was a void and I couldn't leave. What was I looking for? I might never know.

But that's when things got weird. I started to have strange dreams that would come true, just as my mother had before me. My sister would have these dreams as well and other paranormal activities that led my father to put her into the psychiatric ward. I have never told my parents about this because I do not wish for the same fate.

Besides these dreams I have seen a black figure. He has came to me before when I was resting once on my bed. I heard the door open and I thought it was my mom so I pretended to be asleep so that she might not talk to me. Suddenly, I felt my legs become numb and it slowly creep up my body. I felt like the life was being sucked out of me. I tried to scream as loud as I could, but nothing came out. I managed to ward this feeling off, and as I turned my head I saw him. The Black man, his hand reached out over me. I have seen the hand since on occasion, most recently at my apartment. This leads to me believe that it can't be a ghost because it has been following me.

Finally, I have had telepathic and telekinetic experiences. I can tell what people are like, and be able to tell things were going to happen before they do. And, the most weird of all, I have moved things with my mind before. None were voluntary and I can't control it. The whole thing is scaring me and I don't know what to do. I'm totally serious in telling this story and I'm only doing so because I've run out of options. I can't face my mother because I'm afraid of the consequences. No one else I know has had this happen to them, and I'm afraid to confide in them when they might think that I'm a demon, or insane.

I don't know how serious everyone else on this site is, but I just want answers. I've felt my entire life that I was meant for something, that I had some purpose on this planet that I needed to fulfill. Why have these gifts, or curses, chosen me? What am I supposed to do with them? If anyone has any comments, answers, or information for me please let me know. It's so tough not knowing who to trust, and who to believe. I can not avoid this any longer. I must know what is happening to me.

the only way to rid yourself of this is to turn to christ and the church. It worked 100% for my mom.

You are not going insane. I know this, because that was the last dream I ever had. I haven't dreamed for the past four years, not that I can remember.

My dream was actually watching a girl, like you, getting haunted by the Shadow Grim. Maybe it actually was you.

But her soul got sucked out, and someone saved you.

Yes, that must have been it. One of you guys were probably that girl.

In the dream, it was too late to save the girl. If any of you have ever read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban, they are much like the Dementors.

They are born of fear and despair. They suck all the happiness from the area. And if they manage to suck out your soul, the result is nothing good.

You will still live, but you will be only be a shell. You will have no memory, not at all. And you will be incapable of any emotions.

You will be turned into a hard, cold, bitter shell. Just like the Dementor or Shadow Grim itself.


And if you ever feel depressed, need help, or just want to talk, come here. We can help you.

I've also encountered the Dark Ones, they used to try to haunt me in my dreams, until I started fighting back, don't quote me but I think they are negative emotions that have manifested into form. The reason I say this is because, some years ago (before I started tuning my abilities) a close relative died, and I remember it hitting me with such force that my negative emotions drained from my body and created one of them. Not sure if that is what they are though, they're extremely powerful (no where near the power of God mind you). Stay strong, and know that you're not alone.

You have so many gifts you can't be crazy. I'm jealous of all of them. But I wouldn't tell your dad either. But tell your mom because she'll help you because she s gone through this. Your lucky your family might understand because I'm guessing these are genetic. By the way I feel bad for your sister. 😢

i definitely believe that these shadow beings thrive on fear. With your abilities, you should be able to easily detect whether they are good or bad. Personally, I haven't seen one yet that was anything short of pure evil.

I used to see them a lot when I was younger. I had no idea of my abilities, I just knew that I was "different" and that I didn't fit in ANYWHERE. These figures tormented me. I stopped seeing them for a while after I found out God exists (different story;). But one night, not too long afterward, my apartment was FILLED with these. I've never been so afraid in my entire life. I prayed all night. I woke up exhausted with the covers over my head. It was good for me though, because I learned that if that many can do any harm to me, one is not even a nuisance anymore.

I admit that I don't know a lot about spirits and the afterlife, but I am keeping an open mind. I have felt good spirits around me at times, but these shadow figures have always felt evil to me - almost suffocating.

Now whenever I see an evil one, which is very rare now, I approach it and tell it to go back where it came from, and they always disappear. I think the power comes from knowing that I am connected to everyone and everything - even to God the Creator.

Good luck to you, HunterB, in finding out how to use your gifts.

no, I don't believe you are a demon or insane, but I have felt that way. The feeling of not being able to tell anyone what you can do because you're scared of what they might say. Not being able to trust even your best friends and parents. I read people too, and am also empathic. I do not mean to anger you, but as I read your story, the feelings I got were that you are scared and are kind of taking a self-defence stand, not wanting to let anyone get to you. Don't worry, you are among friends, and others who know what it feels like to be ridiculed and called crazy when we try to tell others of our abilities. Trust not only yourself, but those of us here in this site and out in your world that want to help you a little more. Take care, chao.

I am a firm believer that befor we are born we are given options to contribute to our own blue prints in life. I think that the people who share the like gift chose it for themselves.

We all have been blessed and yes I say blessed with gifts of that nature. All different but some how connected. When we pass I think that we just move up a dimension. I hear people talking about how the passed float above ground. They are not floating just walking and running freely among their dimension. As for the black man I had this feeling and shortly after a dream.

I believe it to be or inner darkness. All that has good has some bad. All that is black must be white. For every up is a down. The black man came to you while you were at a peacefull moment. He came to confront you about things you have been neglecting in your life. Face him and let him know you are not afraid once you do that you should find some relief. If not than I do not know. Wish you luck and love.P.S My moms freak out over everythng. I know I have three

Also, I have been trying to start meditating lately and I'm having no success. Any tips from anyone. And I have heard some people talking about mediums to help understand my gifts. What are mediums?

The thing that bothers me the most is the connection between people with abilities such as myself and others like the people that have posted here (much thanks to you guys by the way) and the black figure. It seems to me that most people with abilities have seen this figure at one point or another. Does anyone have any explanation as to what "it" is?

Wow, that is so wierd, I thought I was only one that got visits from a dark spirit like that.

When I was a teenager it started happening all the time, just like you would describe. A dark man would come into my bedroom and lean over my bed and put his hand over my face. It was really cold and I couldn't move or say anything. A couple of times he would lean over and put his face a few inches away from mine and even in my sleep I could see it and it used to scare the crap out of me. I used to wake up in the middle of the night screaming.

I had a chair in my room, and sometimes he used to sit in it and laugh at me in a really nasty way.

I stopped telling people about what happened because like your sister my parents made me go see a therapist. Of course it didn't do a
single bit of good. Eventually I just stopped telling people about it and they thought it was just a "phase" that I went through. It just goes to show that that people don't know you at all.

What I have found that helps is that dark spirits like that one tend to draw energy from your fear. I find that being afraid of them gives them power over you. Praying definitely helps a whole bunch. Eventually they do go away, as long as you are not afraid of them.

Yeah I get premonitions too. For me though its only for short lengths of time, usually five to ten minutes. Sometimes its several small events that happen throughout the day.
I tend to remember specific details, what the person was saying, what clothing they were wearing, what location I am at, stuff like that. But always for a few minutes at a time. And I don't realize I had a premonition about it until it happens and then I'm like oh yeah now I remember, I had a dream about this. Some ability, I can't remember what is going to happen until it is actually happening. How in the heck is that supposed to work?

Anywho, just letting you know that you're not the only one.

i found it best not to tell people who are "normal" because they think your nuts. My mom thinks I'm joking like one night I was sorta in a dream/awake state and I took a picture frame apart piece by peice with my mind and moved it to the other wall from my bed. It freaked me out and when I yelled everything went back to the other wall. I also have preminitions. Also I get this weird feeling at night in the dark that something/one is watching me. Then ill always see a black shadow. I'm still trying to get control of my gifts as well have you tried meditation? It's been working for me. Trust me you are not alone! Good luck

when I was little I had this reoccuring dream for a week. I walked out of a house and walked down the backyard to a tree house and a man was at the top saying strange things. I don't remember the details and I had completly forgotten about them until recently, when we moved houses. This sounds insignifigant but the house we moved into is the one that was in my dream. Does anyone know the meaning of this?

There are many people in Mental hospitals today, who hear voices and see things and receive the same kinds of Psychic Information that you are saying you and your mother get.
Your mother may not be mentally ill at all but may be controlled by those who don't realize what happens to psychics when they begin to get dreams and premonitions and don't know what is happening to them.
Sometimes when people are becoming Psychic and they don't always know they will tell these stories to friends, realtives and co-workers who are ignorant to these things and the first thing they do is send them off to a Therapist who is as ignorant as they are about these things and they put all sorts of labels on them and over medicate them and sometimes they ruin their lives.
In our world which is still in the dark ages where this sort of thing occurs they have closed minds and refuse to look to the Paranormal reason for peoples behavior and at times realtives who don't share the persons Psychic Gift can get in on the act and find a Therapist and even a Judge and or law enforcment to take the person under control and have them committed against their will and take control of their estates and all sorts of things as they have them declared mentally incompetent and so as a result almost anyone who is blessed with this Psychic gift is forced to hide and slink around and hope no one knows what they are doing but of course if you don't use this Gift what good is it.
I am here to educate more people and hopefully get therapists and Psychiatrists to admit that they don't have all the answers and take another look at some of those patients before they destroy their lives.
You need to personally take a look at your mothers situation and see what is going on with her and see if you believe the only thing that is wrong with her is her Psychic Gift and if that's true someone needs to help your mother before her life is ruined.

Keeping in mind most Doctors have no idea what is going on in a Psychic Situation, all they have is their misdiagnosis and their aniquated ideas from Medical school and theories passed down by others who know no more about Psychic than they do, and the doctors of course have strong medication which they hope will dull the Paranormal Gift and force people to accept the status quo.
Thank goodness I found some Psyiatrists on the Web which I am reading which tells me that the Medical Community does have a few who are willing to keep an open mind and trailblaze into the future to understand their patients a little better and we need more of those.
The web is a great place to research the paranormal and check on Doctors and Scientists and all sorts of things as far as what do they think about the Paranormal and I have learned they are still in the dark ages and we need to change some of these things as time goes on and that is why I am writing about what I know everywhere I find an Opportunity and that is what my Psychic Guides want too.
Also as an adviser on how psychiatrists think is Dr. P. In the Spirit World who when he walked the earth was one of our towns most sought after Psychiatrists and he tells me now that he realizes just how little he knew about the human mind and the Psychic World and he knows now that he misdiagnosed many and put labels on them and overmedicated them and when the Medicine didn't dull the dreams and visions he at times sent people to state mental facilities when they couldn't afford their care and sometimes when the people could afford it he advised the patients relatives to give the patient Shock Therapy and sometimes this wiped about all memories and sometimes this got rid of the Visions and Dreams and sometimes it didn't because the Spirits who were talking to the patient went right on talking trying to make people believe they are alive in the Spirit World so they could prove Everlasting life just as Jesus Promised us we would have.
I personally am trying not to harp on religion in my writings because I know now even Athiests die and their spirit Lives on in the after Life no matter what they believed when they walked the Earth.
All the word Athiest means to me now is someone doesn't believe in something that has not been proven to them or tht they haven't experienced but even someone who doesn't believe in God can be a good person if they live their life in a good way and are kind and good to others and prepare themselves for whatever they find when they die becauase at that time they will know there is a God and a Creator, and that will be true no matter what they believed when they walked the Earth.
Every plant, every tree every vegetable and all the things created by the creator was meant to nourish the body of humans and animals and even the plants and herbs which let's us become our own Psychians and heal ourselves if we so desire.
I got off the subject here but that the way it is when I do automatic writing with Spirits who have a lot to say to the World through me and Automatic Writing.

Is your mother still in a hospital for the mentally unstable? Or under the care of a psychiatrist? I can only assume that there were other reason that led your father to have your mother committed? I mean, other than her prophetic dreams? My advice to you is to not be afraid to speak to your mother about the things that you are experiencing, that is, if she is not currently being medicated and if you feel she would be any help to you. I understand that there are some circumstances that may prevent you from doing so, perhaps she is unaccepting of her own gift because of your father's obvious lack support. Or maybe she has the same gifts but is not mentally stable enough to develop, understand and use her gifts. It is always easiest to get help from someone that understands and has the same experiences. At the very least, you may be able to gain a better understanding of your gifts. If this is not a possibility for you, there is other help, there are many on this site that may be able to offer some insight and guidance. I am somewhat new, but would be willing to help answer any questions that you may have, or to find answers elsewhere if I can not do so myself. Hope this was helpful.

Well, you should feel grateful for your psychic powers(well, most of them).

I experienced the same thing. Its a dark shadow that slithered beside my bed with no face and laid on me and I kept praying in my head, because I could not speak either and it lifted off of me. The scariest thing ever! It was death or something evil I believe. You are not crazy and I suffer with a gift of dreams that happen sometimes years later. You can only tell people that have these gifts. Regular people will think you are wierd or crazy. You have a gift, pray and ask God to guide you through him, so it will not be evil. As I prayed I have not seen this evil shadow ever again. Good luck!

I definitely think you are psychic! But your doing the right thing not telling anyone but if your mother is psychic why did she put your sister in the psychiatric ward wouldn't she of believed or something as she had gone through the same thing? Doont worry you are gifted and don't get scared of your abilities and try and use them for good but don't be obvious your psychic! Good luck! 😊
