I've actually had a few experiences myself, and was really curious as to what others may think. I thought maybe if I published my story and questions here that I might be able to get some type of feed back. Anything will do really, and if anyone has any answers or advice for me I would really love to hear it, and I would appreciate it greatly.
Before I tell my experiences I would really like to state a few things that I plan on asking about later on. I've heard, and believe, that everyone has some sort of psychic ability. It may not be strong, or it may not show, but everyone has some sort of power. I also have heard and believe that if you practice at trying to listen to and strengthen these abilities then they may get stronger. Another thing is that I've heard that some people come from a family of mediums or psychics. I know that very strong wills and intuition run in the women in my family, and also that my grandmother is a medium, and that my mother has very strong intuition. Close friends and family members, as well as a few strangers have appeared to my grandmother at the moment of their deaths, and my mother's instinct is nearly never off. That being said I guess I can share now.
Nothing really phenomenal or big has ever really happened to me in the form of any type of psychic powers. Enough happens though for me to notice and wonder about it. Most often my intuition is very, very strong. I know when little things are going to happen, and my subconscious seems to tell me, but I have a bad habit of ignoring myself. I can watch silently while a friend walks towards me, and I know they are going to run into someone or fall for no apparent reason, but I don't pay any mind to the mental warning. I watch them fall and realize I was right. I get déjà vu at times, but it usually comes in longer bursts. For instance, I can have three to four déjà vu feelings in one week, and then go another two weeks without having one.
Something small and maybe pointless also, is I frequently mouth the words someone says before they say it to me. I never really noticed it did it because my mouth moves very subtly and somewhat involuntarily when someone is talking to me. My friends started to get annoyed by it and asked me to stop mocking them, but I told them I had no idea what they were talking about. That was when they told me I mouth the things that people say before they say them.
Some of the less frequent things are thinking of someone or something and then it happens. I was doing my make up the other day and had a feeling my phone was going to ring, and that it would be my dad. A few minutes after that my dad called. Once or twice a year I have premonition dreams. The one that I remember most was from the 7th grade. My friend had recently tried out to be in show choir with me, and we were waiting to hear if she had made it at the end of the year. A week or so before we got the results I had a vivid but yet simple dream. She walked into the class with my cousin wearing a shirt I had never seen before, and her hair up. She simply said she didn't make it. I kept it to myself as not to discourage her, but began to worry when she came to school a few days later wearing her new shirt; the same one from the dream. It later came to be that everything played out just like the dream. She looked the same, said the exact words, and the situation was just like in the dream. The part I had failed to see though was the teacher suddenly changing her mind and asking her to join show choir a few weeks later.
There are a couple other things that are rather strange but maybe of no importance. Around the beginning of December, I began having strange thoughts about someone close to be going in for surgery. I felt it would be something serious if it wasn't taken care of, but usually not deadly. In a way, serious but not serious. A few weeks later my dad called me and told me he would be a little late visiting for Christmas because my step mom had to get her gallbladder taken out. I had put the surgery thing into the back of my mind until then, and after I got off the phone with him, I realized why I hadn't been too surprised. I had been anticipating something like that anyway.
And the second possibly unimportant thing is I may have made some sort of almost connection with a spirit. We think that my friend's house may have a troubled, but not harmful, spirit. One night I tried to communicate with it, and asked it to please try and show me or tell me how it felt. I asked it these things in my head, so there was no way my friend could have known what I asked. After a moment of repeating this in my head and asking it over and over, I got a feeling of violation. It was like someone had invaded my personal space, or was trying to pry into my thoughts, or was getting close to me to speak and I didn't like it, but I tolerated it considering the circumstances. No sooner did I get this feeling did my friend tell me she felt sick to her stomach for no reason at all.
So what do you think? Could I possibly have inherited some heightened sense from the women in my family, or are these all just coincidences? Maybe I have some sort of power but it's buried in my subconscious and I will have to work to uncover it and learn to use it? Please, I'd really love to know what you think. =]
