I Can Discern Whether a Person is Good, Bad or Ugly


When I was a little girl I remember hearing voices, almost like whispers but a lot of them, and really loud. This didn't happen a lot and the last time I remember hearing voices when I was about 11. And from then, I haven't heard anymore. But ever since, I'm able to feel out bad people/negative people. Usually I immediately feel a strange feeling come over me and then with spending time with the person, if there's real negativity there, the feeling is very strong.

I've ignored this my entire life as I thought I'm seeing this person wrong or maybe I'm moody or whatever. And never ever ever have I been wrong. If anything, I continued to have a relationship, friendly or otherwise and eventually the person's true nature revealed itself, and most not good at all. My mother met a man whom she fell in love with and brought him home to introduce to my sister and I, from the moment I shook his hand I felt sick, I was 15 then and I didn't know why I felt 'sick'. Well, my mother ended up marrying this man when I was 17. I had my own place and when I would come to their home, I would feel this really weird sensation every time. It became very apparent that this man was no good and my mother couldn't see it.

To make a long story short, this man attempted to kiss me on many occasions, spoke in a manner not becoming of a 'husband' in front of me and other family members and he just basically did off the wall things and it got worst as time went on. I tried telling my mother that there was something very wrong about him and I couldn't put my finger on it and she dismissed what I felt for jealousy. They're now divorced and she admitted that all those years I was right all along. And basically my life is filled with stories like this and I've never been wrong about anyone I meet, I can discern most times immediately whether this person is good, bad or ugly.

My perception isn't as strong when I first meet them, but if I know for a fact that I receive negative energies it's most always true and ends up being prevailent throughout our relationship. I've always been known to have a good judgement of character, but ever since I've started recognizing my abilities, I've learned to stick to my gut instinct about people.

I know exactly how this feels. I've been trying to figure this out for a few years now. I've always been able to tell if I don't like a person, whether or not there's something off about them, but I sort of always ignored it up until about three years ago when my grandmother died. I completely freak out if I meet someone and I get an extremely strong vibe that something is off about them. It's uncomfortable to be near them. And it's a waiting process. You have to let it reveal itsself until the feeling goes away. Evertime I say something about a person, I turn out to be right. A girl I worked with, I completely freaked out when she started working and literally had to go to the back of the store until I was stable enough to go work. Turns out, she was a compulsive liar, a huge drinker, smoked, dropped out of school. All that fun stuff. Usually I can't put my finger on what it is, but lately I have been. My ex boyfriend is going out with some girl and I don't like her. I feel like she's a liar, a user, and psycho. We will see what happens, though. I had a dream that she was completely psycho as well.

Me too. Thanks Abby for a great post.

If any of you are parents, make sure you help your children to listen in and learn to do this (I do believe most people can do this if they trust themselves).

My elder daughter was at a party a few years ago and somebody was raped. She said to me afterwards, "You don't need to worry, Mum, because the minute X walked into the room I thought, 'There's no way I'm talking to HIM!' I do listen to my intuition."

These things are there to help us, not to hinder.

I have the same experiences! I would meet someone and if there a good or bad I can pick up on it. Or if someone has a problem I can pick up it to, its not just people, I can get feelings from objects to. If someone had something for along time or if I'm around something that has good or negative energy I pick up on it right away. If its negative I start to feel really sick like I want to throw up, if it's good energy I feel really good. I can be pretty draining though picking up on everything, I get really tired and with my gift of being psychic I get migraines too. There some people that I can never be comfortable with no matter how hard I try.

I read this story and the comments for it and just wanted to respond to Abby's letter to Danielle. Actually, I just wanted to tell Abby thank you. Although the letter was not directed to me specifically, I found a lot of truth in it. It was a very beautiful post Abby.

wow, that's a good ability. You'll be needing to use it every time your sister meets a new person. It might save her some pain.

Im a teenager and I don't think that this is a "life experience" thing. Ever since I was little I could tell if my sister's friends would be good or bad just by hearing their names or seeing them. I was always right in my judgment. Once I remember warning my sister about her "best Friend", who I had not known, and I told her that that girl will betray you and turn everyone against you and it happened. Everytime I ever warned my sister she always came back to me and said that I was right and that she should have listened to me in the first place.

Personally, most of telling if someone is good or bad... Is already built into them from years of living, what you do is a part of you. And even if you do get "bad feelings" about them... Does not make them a bad person off the bat... Maybe they have had bad expiernces, or trying to get better, or have a sickness. Yes, anyone can be bad, but they can also be good with bad things that have happened to them.

The exact same thing happens to me! Out of curiosity, do you get a tingly feeling on the side of your body were would be a very bad person? Cause I do. If they're just a little bad, I'll feel nervous. If they're nutral or better than that I jsut feel normal or good, depending on the intensity of their goodness.

I know if a person is good or not. People think I'm just mean, I know I'm not. I started to doubt myself until I spoke to my friend who is a medium now I feel comfortable about my senses.

I to can look at a person and see if there is negativity or deceit example, let say my nephew have been going around saying bad things about me I would already know he did this without anybody having to come back and tell me. Sometime people think they can do things in secret, and for some reason it's like when they try to deceive me it's like a light is being shown exactly on what they are trying to hide and conceal or say about me, I can see things plain as day. Most of the time people just don’t know I know and think they're getting away with it when everything has already been revealed to me.

Dear Danielle,

You are like many of us who can sense things about the demeanor of another human being, place or thing. What we are all sensing is the energy vibration each human gives off. This energy is like a calling card or our own personal energy resume which tells others around us who we are. We can also leave these energy calling cards or resumes with people, places and things through imprinting or a connective type of energy vibrational cords (chord). This is why if you would take a room full of people and take them to different rooms where positive or negative emotional events took place, many will be able to tell you that they feel or sense something about each room and whether it is positive or negative.

The way to protect yourself from excessive incoming vibrational, calling card information from others is to find a protective shield ritual that you connect with and use it.

I prefer to imagine a white or purple light surrounding myself inside and out like a cocoon. I then put mirrors around me so that others negative thoughts and so forth can stay where they belong with the giver. I also ask for help from the other side in prayer and meditation to help protect me.

It is your responsibility to research and find out what works for you, trial and error if you must, but when you find it, use it.

The less stressed you are within your life and less cluttered your environment, the more you will be able to be more silent, centered and balanced. The more you are these things, the more you will be able to handle the outside world and all communications physical and non-physical.

Learn to find out who you are and everything about yourself, the good, bad and the ugly. Learn to find and draw your own boundaries. Learn to say no and mean it, not only to the non-living or dead, but to the living as well. Most of all learn to empower yourself, and to know when someone is draining you of your power. Learn your limits and when you need down time in which to recharge your own energies, then do it!

To thine own self be true; take care of yourself first and then you will be able to help others as you help yourself. When you find yourself in trouble, admit it and go get the help you need and take action to make the change to better yourself and your life. If you fail, fall down, pick your self up and do it again. Don't beat yourself up about past mistakes, but learn from them and most of all learn not to repeat them. Learn to forgive those who have hurt or harmed you. It is not for them, as much as it is for you and your deepest soul and spirit. Be honest, true and stand in your own. Use everything you have learned, to meld and merge it into your life and being, for you are everything and all things, and at the same time you are not any of these things. This is because you are "greater than" you will ever know in this life, but you are awakening to remembering your greatness.

Remember one thing, you are love and you are loved. If you feel unloved, then it is because some other human being has told you this and you believed it, and now you have told yourself this same lie. They told you this, because somewhere along the line in their lives, someone else told them they did not love them. Do not believe these lies, but believe in yourself and believe in unconditional love and that it is attainable. As human beings, we each have it as our responsibility to break this chain of telling each other we are not good enough to be loved or that we are not lovable. It is a lie, disinformation; the only one's who
imprison us in this lie are our own fellow human beings who have somehow come into the belief system that it is also acceptable to imprison others. It is true love can set you free and we, as human beings are meant to love one another, the good, bad and ugly in each and everyone of us, including me and including you!

Love yourself, believe in yourself and let no other human being or lie put you or us asunder (not to be torn apart, divided or separated).

We are all ONE! We each know ourselves and we each know the other, we have just forgotten in this veil, but we are awakening now, one by one.

Blessings, Abby

I also can detect someones mood or problems they have wether at home or it being secret. ME, as a little girl I could tell some one attitude or personality once I glanced at them and I would think everyone could do it. My mom was close friends with a lady and only I could see her fakeness. She was only my moms friend because my mom new people and would have really good connections to almost everywhere. My mom thought she was a good friend. My mom would give her every thing she needed. But the one time my mom need something she didn't recieve it from her. Her daughters would steal money out of my moms purse and then theyd lie about it. Then theyd lock us out the house late at night. Shed say some disrespectful things to my mom. And to this day she doesn't think she did anything wrong to my mom. Well my mom and her relationship hasnt been the same since. My mom then saw that I was right from the get-go about her now ex-friend. And boy do these abilities come in handy. I'm wondering how I can make these abilities stronger though please help me. EVERYONES MENTIONING MEDITATION BUT I DONT KNOW HOW TO DO THAT REALLY. PLEASE HELP 😐

I can also do this and have been able to do it as long as I can remember. I can never put my finger on what it is about the person I just have a strange feeling inside of me. I have never once been wrong like when my next door neighbor introduced me to old partner I immediately told my partner (magpyes) that I was unsure about this man and I thought he was telling her a lot of lies and that he was still with his ex wife and it turns out everything I said was right
