Sensing Things That Just Aren't Normal


Ever since I was a child, I have been able to sense ghosts, their emotions, and sometimes their memories. I usually get along with ghosts though; I feel respect for them, for they are beings too. They have emotions just like the rest of us. They can perceive the world and have their own motives and ideas. At least, that is what I feel when I am around them. They are not only humans, there are animals as well. Every living creature has a spirit that will return to the spiritual world when has moved on from this physical form. My former cat Leon still roams my house. I see him at dinner, following his former habits of sitting beside me begging with those baby blue eyes.

Not only am I able to sense spiritual beings, but I can also perceive things with a cloud like appearance about them, usually of light or of dark. I do not know how many others out there can do the same, but I feel it helps show who or what is good or not. At least, in my experiences, it appears to be so. I say who or what because it is not only people. It applies to everything. For example, I see ouiji boards as dark, but then nature and animals are white. These clouds sometimes come with a glowing color behind them. After doing some reading, I want to call them auras, but I cannot seem to apply that word to them. It feels like the incorrect title for these particular colors and clouds.

Beyond my perception of the visual world, I sometimes get swamped by feelings that I cannot control. I'm not sure what causes this. I usually avoid large groups of people for the sake of my sanity. When I am alone, I feel at peace. But large crowds cause me to go into overdrive it seems. I had a friend over, and he was laughing it up and acting like he was, but I could just feel off of him that something was wrong. He looked normal, he seemed fine from what I could see, but my emotions around him were not right. The mood did not make the perception. I asked him, and sure enough, he was not okay, he was having home issues.

Another thing has been happening. I am not sure what to categorize this under, but when people talk about something and mess up, I still get what they were talking about. It is like I don't really have to listen to them to hear what they are saying. I get like a mental statement in my head. I never really thought anything of it, until the other day when someone pointed it out to me. But I have been doing this all my life. I also can usually get what people did in pictures of crafts or on blogs without trying too hard. I could sense how this sock zebra was made without reading the directions; it was like the directions just came to me in my head from the picture. I do not how this happened. I know it sounds insane, but that is literally what happened.

I do not how these things occur; I never really have to work on them or anything. If anybody has any idea on how improve this or explain them, I would be grateful. Leave a comment below with your advice. Thank you for spending the time to read through this.

Thanks for your advice, and I do wish to embrace the spiritual side of me. Just a few more questions. How exactly do I learn to meditate? What is the best method of meditation? And how exactly should I go about calling the phoenix to myself when I am ready to do so? Again, thank you for your advice.

That sounds like a rough life. I'm not sure how to help. I'm just as unsure as the next inexperienced person is.

What exactly is this "healing cottage" you speak of? I am very intrigued, I would like to learn more, if you don't mind sharing.

pannick attacks are a pain in the bum if I do say so lol, I'm having a lot at the moment, haven't really had any experiences at the minute, I have phases I think, it could be just paranoia to be honest but I like to think I inherited my dads gift, I would to contact him, but if I'm honest I'm too scared to get in contact with spirit guides etc because spirits can be dangerous energies, and knowing me I would probably do something wrong lol, I think if it was meant to be, it will come to me on its own, I'm thinking of getting in touch with my dads reiki teacher back in the uk, she has a healing cottage with lots of talented people with different gifts, maybe I could go to one of their spiritual nights. That's where my dad saw an angel, and a ghost different occasions of course. I don't know how I would react though, I'm anxious as it is:/ xxxx

I was ready the comments here, there are quite special fellows here, So I decided to share my story here. When I was born, I was about to die, the doctor said that I couldn't make it because the navel string was very short. My father started to pray, and then I was born. Meanwhile, growing up was hard I started to experience anxiety and panic attacks when I started to attend school. My imagination grew larger and larger. It often trapped me into a dream world, I could travel around the universe and yet not only moving a finger. It was like a Coma, it started as cool thing but ended in panic attacks, self-destructive mutilation, and phobias... I quite sensitive to somethings like smells, emotions, noises, people, weather, animals, flowers. I suffer from asthma too.

I often have strange and flashy non common Déjà-Vus that tell me that if something is suppose to happen, like if I'm talking to someone in a certain place a click happens in my mind, Saying that it couldn't had happen any other way, like I've already passed by that experience.

Anyway, I wanted to share a story that happened to me almost over a year. I was walking my dog at the park and I notice a mantis starring at me on the sidewalk. It was really strange I felt he was looking at me. I looked at him, and then I got way. Some days later, I went to the same park and in the exact spot there it was the mantis, but this time dead, being eaten by ants. I felt really sorry for him. I went home and forgot all about what happened. But then, one day I was at my attic looking for some packaged stuff from when I was a kid and then I stopped... There it was, a little toy that I had, a plastic mantis, similar to the one I had saw some days before but I had forgotten. How bizarre. So I kept that toy...
Thank you for reading my story if there is anyone who wants to share some info on how I can enhance my spiritual and get rid of this anxiety, share it, I would appreciate a lot,

Thank you for the compliment. And yes, I know many things. I'm just not the best explainer about things.
Usually when one wants to find their spirit guide they would do it by way of meditation. First, learn to meditate. When you are ready, during your meditation ask for your spirit guide to come to meet you. In your meditation it may be best if you envision a happy peaceful place to meet. Always meet at the same place. When you do meet the spirit guide you can ask if he/she is your guide. He/she will tell you yes or no. And, don't be shocked if your spirit guide is not human. Not all of them are. Be patient. It will happen in good time. Ask very simple questions at first. Always remember to thank your spirit guide. Others may be able to give you a better technique but this is how I did it. There are different ways to protect yourself but you must when you are dealing with any spirit other than your spirit guide. Ask your God for protection. Say a prayer for protection. Think of positive thoughts when interacting with spirits. Do a house cleansing. There are many more techniques as stones, sage and prayer. But, I'm not the best to expaiin those things. And, never show any fear. Dark/negative spirits feed off of fear.
Also, while meditating call the phoenix to you. He/she may be your spirit guide too. Most people have atleast 4 guides during their life. The phoenix is connected to fire. Fire may be your element. It may have been waiting for you to be ready to meet. Spirit guides are very patient. I hope I have helped you. Others may have more advice too. But, the bottom line is that you are becoming more aware of the spiritual side of yourself so you will experience many new things. Don't be scared. Embrace it. But, only if you want to.

Thank you for the advice. You are quite helpful and know a lot. I just have two main things that raised a few of questions.
1) You said I should find my spirit guide. How exactly do I do that? Is there a way I'll know that they are my spirit guide and not just another ghost?
2) You also said I should protect myself, but I am not sure how to do that either. Is there a way I can learn this?

Also, I don't know if this is related or not, but throughout my life, I have been drawn towards the phoenix, or at least, that is the way it seems. It keeps popping up in my life. I'm just wondering if anyone else has a thought on this; if it is something to take meaning in, or should I just let it go and not worry about it?

If you choose to continue learning about your ability than you may become more aware of things and people. You should meditate and do it often. The white and black are auras. What you need to do is allow more colors to show itself. With practice this will happen. As each color appears match it with the emotion that it is making you feel. As you see more and more than you will not need to memorize them anymore. Connect each color with mind, body or spirit each time. With the spirits, you have a huge connection. First, you must protect yourself whenever you are dealing with a spirit. You must first find your spirit guide. He/she will protect you. Then and only then you can allow the spirits to show you stuff. They will show you visions, feelings and may also talk to you. Always remember that you are in control and not them. I say that because sometimes dark spirits/entities hide behind spirits that mean no harm. It's easy to find a spirit but it is sometimes very hard to get rid of one. So be careful. Get to know your spirit guide and learn protection techniques. Show no fear. Some spirits feed off of fear. About sensing others feelings. Just allow it to happen. As time passes you will see, feel and sense more from others. Oh, and sometimes a spirit will give you a message for someone else. Make sure that you deliver it to that person. So, my advice is to tread lightly and new experiences are abound.

Thank you both for your comments. I am still unsure about what exactly this means. I still don't understand 100% of what I experience. I just know emotions and memories for a while, I don't know how to control it, or if it can be controlled.

[at] Eagleclaw - you seem to be very knowledgeable on the subject. Is there more to this that I am unaware of or should know?

[at] openminded27 - Firstly, I don't know if I am talented really, or to the degree you make it out to be. However, I can understand what you are saying. It scares me quite a lot to feel others moods. I used to be afraid of ghosts when I was tiny, but I sort of got used to them. I think as time goes on, I get more and more comfortable with ghosts. Though, sometimes, there are a few ghosts that do terrify me to the bone, and it's just the feelings I get from them. Also, I have had strange things happen with people talk to me about their homes. I think it is memory thing happening again, where I can sense memories, but when people talk about someplace in their house to me, I can usually picture in my mind to a very high degree of accuracy.

hey, firstly I believe you, now I don't know if I'm as talented but for a few years now I feel as though I can feel peoples energies and emotions, I lost my dad 3 years ago, at the time I was suffering with depression and anxiety attacks, the night before the sunday he passed away, I had a massive pannick attack and I felt so anxious fustrated, my dad passed away through the night from naturel causes, they couldn't predict an exact time. The morning after I got a phone call off one of a family friend, and I felt sick to my stomache I already knew what he was going to tell me, even though knowone could have predicted what was going to happen, my dad himself had a sixth sense but didn't talk to anyone about it, he went for reiki spirituel healing classes and I think that then opened a door to this new talent, I found out his stories from the spiritual healers, he even saw an angel once. Anyway I seem to know things before they happen, dream things that I see or hear the next day, know people then ask them how and I don't know them but their neigbours/friends etc and yet have never been to their homes, when people are unhappy, depressed I feel the same and get pannick attacks, randomly worry about people who then need pyscological help, I am a good listener, and tend to say the right things at the right time, and have felt several times my dads presence and heard him call my name whilst I was crying. I don't speak to this about anyone but I'm interested to find out more, but I don't know weather it scares me or not. Thanks

You are an empath for humans, animals and spirits. You can sense true emotions of others. Or as I often say "Seeing through the bushes".
