I have been reading the many stories and experiences on this site and I am so grateful that this site exist as it confirms that I am not "crazy" and there are many like me out there.
Over this last few years I have been undergoing changes and have begun to notice this new power emerging that I have no control over.
1.I have this knowing of things. Like stepping into someones home and knowing specific things about what goes on that no one told me. I just knew. Its like a voice whispering it to me in my head.
2.There was also this time that I was about to enter this hotel room for the first time and this voice right by my right ear said "This is going to be so bad." And I just knew someone was trying to warn me that the room was bad. True enough, when I stepped into the room, it reeked of bad vibes. I felt that something bad was going to happen if I stayed there that night. Needless to say, I changed rooms.
3.I also had encounters with spirits. Most of the time I just sense their presence. But there was this one time a shadow thing tried to attack me in my sleep.
4.I am also an empath. I have always read people really well. But nowadays I think I might have been soaking up on peoples emotions without knowing it. Have been avoiding crowds and throwing up shields since.
5.Praying used to be a one way conversation and now I get answers, but only to heartfelt prayers of course. Its like I ask a question and I get this answer delivered to my brain. Not sure how to explain it but its like its a part of my consciousness, a knowing.
Have been doing a lot of reading on all things psychic and I remembered that I used to see shadows out of the corner of my eyes, being scared of particular places, having my name called out by no one and seeing colored specks at night when I was a kid. I guess all these gifts has suddenly decided to get stronger.
My mom and sis have psychic abilities too. But none of my friends seem to have it and I am not comfortable telling them about it. Really hope to have friends who have these gifts.
