Ever since I was little I have been having visions. I imagined something would happen and then it did, and when it happened I would space out and people would have to ask if I was okay. Usually in the visions it was more outlined and brighter. I usually dream about things that come true. My first vision was when I was three. I envisioned a blonde boy at McDonald's wearing a bright red shirt staring directly at me, and then it happened. Ever since then I've been getting strong feelings that I'm connected to the dead. If it helps, my dad died on my third birthday. Seems to be a lot going on with the number 3 (sorry, paranoia) :P
Anyway, I always get these strong feelings that someone is with me. After my uncle died I went to where he lived, and I had this heavy feeling on my shoulders. I couldn't move and I huddled under a blanket because it felt so cold and hostile even though no one was in the house besides my two aunts, who didn't feel anything. As soon as I left the house, the weight felt lifted off my shoulders and I felt at peace.
I sometimes get dreams about my dead relatives. I mentioned this in my other story, that I had a dream about my great grandmother who I barely knew. In the dream she called her son in law a: "Rotten old German" and after I told my mom about the dream, she told me that my great grandma said that before I was even born. I would get dreams about her quite frequently, often to send a message to my grandmother who misses her very much and how she can be connected with her. My grandfather also sent me a message in my dream, and talked about a fight he got in with my mom before he died and to tell her that he loves her and that she shouldn't feel guilty for not being there before going into open heart surgery. (Which was when he died).
I can also talk to my pets. I have a connection with them where I can talk to them and make them do certain things. I can talk to them telepathically and tell them to prove their love to me by jumping on my legs or licking my hands or some other action and they always follow through.
