Real Psychic Experiences

The Rainstorm And The River Are My Brothers


This story is not about me. I have a younger half sister whom I believe is exhibiting some sort of physic abilities. She is extremely intelligent for a five year old, and expresses unnaturally deep sorrow when coming across dead animals or seeing them on television, motivating her to become a self proclaimed vegetarian. Alas, her eating habits and lifestyle are the least of my concerns.

I began to notice she was different from most children about a year ago, before I realized my own strangeness. Every weekend I visit my father, because he only has partial custody of my sister and younger half brother, and so only sees them on the weekends. It happened to be a very sunny afternoon in the early summer, and the morning's weather forecast portrayed nothing but sun and temperatures in the eighties. My father and I decided it would be a wondrous day to go out for lunch and then take the little ones to a nearby park.

After eating until my stomach protruded noticeably, we hopped into the car and took our time getting to the park. My sister, on the way, stated randomly, "Oh, Daddy, I think it is going rain." My father chuckled at her and explained to her how it wasn't supposed to rain all week, but perhaps she would get her wish next week when maybe it wasn't so hot out.

Shortly after this, we got there, and the kids went bananas over the park. They swung about, slid, hung, and jumped from everything in sight. We weren't there for more than an hour and a half, and we left to go for supper at my grandmother's house. After eating again until I could just barely waddle to the car, my father and I dropped the kids off at their mother's house. Again, just as we pulled up to the house, my sister sighed. "I really, really wish it would rain today, Daddy."

As I was helping my brother out of his car seat, I felt little pin pricks on my rump, which was sticking shamelessly out of the car. I wiped off the seat of my pants, by instinct, when I then felt it on my arm. The pricks were freezing, and looking up, I realized it was drizzling. My sister danced about in the rain, opening her mouth to catch the drops.

"See, Daddy? I told you it would rain! You didn't believe me," she laughed, as if his disbelief was a foolish choice. The drizzle only lasted ten minutes.

My father and I still, to this day, notice how she can will things to happen, such as acquiring an object of desire through sheer luck, and has deep empathy for animals. I do believe she might have an ability similar to my own, with which I can communicate with animals through emotion. I want someone else's opinion, besides my father's and my own, on whether or not she does. Rereading this to myself, I realize it doesn't sound very amazing or strange. What if the meteorologist made a mistake in the forecast? A coincidence? I often wonder such things, but that day was truly strange.

One day, last week, she told my grandmother not to be so sad. My grandmother had made a big show of how young and vibrant she felt. She was hiding the fact that she has to go to surgery for her knee, and was actually in a great deal of pain. Not one person caught on that something was wrong until my sister said something over lunch. Can she perceive things? Maybe. Can she just have the ability to see through lies? Perhaps. Please, let me know what you think, so that I may help her control herself, if that is the case.

namaste, this is a lot like me when I was a child. According to mythology, we are each ruled by a specific element. (earth air fire water) It may rule our choices and emotions, feel connected to it, or the nature spirits that associate with it. I am water, and I'm guessing your sis is, too. I was very empathic (empathy is emotions, emotions connected to water), and felt for every living thing. Even those most don't consider, like the tree. I smell and feel weather shifts; sense people's emotions. The person may say they are happy, but I can feel something underneath. Like she can.
The arts, singing, dancing is a great place for us to be, so encourage her with that. Don't have fear or worry, because if she really is an empath, she'll know!
Don't worry about 'normal.' It is highly overrated. What you think is normal will not be the same as the next person. ❤... Light... Life

Hi there,
I believe that your sister can smell the rain coming because I can do the same. The air changes with a different smell and feel. I've always had this so I can't say what normal is Sorry. But, She may be connected to the water spirits too. Just like you are connected to the tree spirit. The water and tree spirits are called nature spirits. I hope this helps you understand more.

I have a young family member who came to visit, it had been a dry hot summer. All she did was look around at how dry everything had become and stated that it needed to rain.
An hour later it was pouring.
I wonder if they have the same ability?

I personally don't think she wills it to happen, I think she just knows it will. Some people are naturally born more spiritually connected to the world around them, and she probably is. It's a very good thing, she's a very blessed little girl. Good luck to you!

Thanks for sharing this story, Hon! It's really interesting! She may have a strong connection with water. I don't know where connections like these come form or what they're for. I have a strong connection to the moon and water, too. The connection probably has a higher meaning, but if it does I don't know it, sorry. As with the animals, if you have it, and she is exhibiting signs of it, then she probably does. Maybe it runs in the family, who knows.
Anyway, Hope I helped!
❤ Gem

Is your sister an artist yet? I like her very much. She has no bad intentions that I can read. She already has empathy for the living world, it would be helpful for her to learn much about it. The cycle of life and death through the new flowers of spring as they grow, make seeds, die and are reborn again in the spring that follows. To help her creativity grow and flourish will help her spirit to have a free place to express no matter the world around her. Teach her to dance and laugh, how to swim and how to love joyfully. And while you're there, the same for you. Blessed be, Ladyhawke ❤
