I am 17 and throughout my life I have had the belief that I was special. Even from a young age I have had premonitions that were mainly small and insignificant. However, recently I have recognized that I may have more psychic abilities than once thought.
During the last year I have realized that I have a strange psychic connection with most animals I meet. In most cases animals show a liking for me and have a desirability to be around me, but in some cases they will share emotions with me. Sometimes I even think I can hear them talking to me in my head.
An example of this is when I was in a Wildlife park and was allowed to go into an enclosure with a male Kaka (a large native parrot in New Zealand). When I entered the enclosure I could feel a positive connection with this bird that I had never met before. Within a couple of minutes of being in this enclosure the Kaka flew over and landed on my shoulder, and put its beak on my ear. It began to breath in my ear. The keeper told me that it only lands on people it really trusts and knows well.
3 or 4 years ago my cat brought in a injured finch that he had caught. The finch was obviously terrified and had a broken wing and internal damage. I got the bird off him and held it loosely in my hands. I began to talk to it in my mind and tried to tell it that I would look after it and keep it safe. After a few minutes of doing so it calmed down and began to follow me and my brother around the house. It would never be out of our sight and was always watching us. Unfortunately after a couple of days it passed away, but I still feel like I am still connected to it.
I have a close relationship to all of my pets and because of that I can still feel their presence once they have passed away. It is as thought they are watching over me and everything I do. I don't necessarily see my dead pets but on occasion I feel like it is present at a time and I can locate where it is in the house.
At my old house we had a cat called Jake. He was a great pet who always wanted love and attention. However he was run over at Christmas and was killed. I didn't feel his presence in that house but as soon as we moved I began to feel that he was around.
One night I was lying in bed when I felt a strong presence in my room and I felt as though a animal was lying on my bed. I inadvertently said "Hey Jake." and the presence faded and everything went back to normal.
I felt Jake's presence again after a heavy snow at our house. Our new cats were playing in the snow and watching them I say out of the corner of my eye a cat shaped blur running across the snow, and I felt Jake's presence.
These happened around 5 years ago and haven't happened since. I felt that Jake was just saying goodbye before he passed on.
Recently I have joined a volunteer service at a local wildlife park. After a few weeks being there I am beginning to realize that I am liked (or hated) by a Native Parakeet in the park. Whenever I am near its enclosure it flies to the side nearest me and begins to chat to me (in parrot). It does this even if there are people everywhere else near its enclosure and enjoys physical contact through the touching of its beak. I don't understand what it wants or whether it actually likes my because I am unable to uphold a conversation with it telepathically.
Can anyone tell me what abilities I have and how I can strengthen them?
