Real Psychic Experiences

I Thought I Had an Over Active Imagination

 

Hello, my name is Paola and I must first say that I am very happy to have found this web site. For so long I felt that I had a crazy imagination. It all started when I was a child. I remember going to bed at night in fear. I always felt like someone was watching me. My hairs on my body would stand up. I would always have a night light on and still do until this day. My mother would always tell me of her experiences of ghostly stories in her small home town in Italy. I also learned that quite a few people in my family had similar experiences and some psychic abilities. My mother told me that I should always pray at night and if I were ever scared to just pray. Well let me tell you, not only has it worked but, it has restored my faith.

The first experience I remember was when we moved into a three family house. The TV would shut off and on and the volume would get higher and lower. The telephone would ring but all you heard was static on the other end. I found it weird because it never happened at the other house. At the time I had an indoor dog and cat. They both would act strange for no apparent reason. I would hear my dog bark and see him looking at the wall. My cat would growl or hiss at nothing and then run away. The next experiences occurred while I was home alone. I often heard my name being called. Whether I was listening to the radio, watching TV, or cleaning. I thought I was hearing things, but it happened several times. I started to see a pattern here and it started to really scare me. I now had an erie feeling that I couldn't shake off.

During the first year, I have seen dark shadows passing at the corner of my eye. A feeling that someone was always behind me, while at the same time feeling my hairs stand up. I was afraid to look at the mirrors in my house, afraid to be alone, and afraid to go to sleep alone. I had asked my cousin who was friends with the family living here before me, if anything weird occurred I didn't tell him what I was experiencing, because I wanted to know if what I was feeling was real. He told me that his friend experienced some scary situations. It turns out that what had happened to me, also happened to him. We had the option of moving to the 1st floor apartment with the backyard, let me tell you I was thrilled, I couldn't wait to move. To think that this would stop what was happening to me.

The experiences became more frequent and more scary. One day after I came home from school, I went into my room to do my homework. I had the radio on singing some tunes when it happened. I felt a cold hand grab my right shoulder and squeezed it hard. My radio shut off and I became numb and terrified. My heart was racing and all I could think about was screaming for my mother but I couldn't. I prayed and got enough courage to get up and walk out my room. I told my mother what happened and her response was "you too?". The night before while in bed, she felt a cold hand grab her leg. I pleaded with her to move out, but we didn't. I didn't know what to do, so one night with my night light on, I asked if anyone was in my room. If yes, the light would flicker twice, if no, the light should flicker once. I asked a series of questions and I got my answers.

I decided to embrace this experience and not be afraid. I came across a shadow in my room one day. It was on the corner of my ceiling. It looked like a little boy sitting with his knees bent. The first thing I did was move everything in my room to see if that shadow would move. I had my friends help me to witness any change. It didn't move! It didn't bother me and I didn't feel threatened. It would stay for months and then disappear.

The following year, I found I would have dreams and some would come true. I was also able to read people and what they were feeling. I would also see myself doing something seconds before actually doing it. One example is when I went to plug a wire into the outlet and seeing myself get a shock. I got the shock and boy was I shocked! Another incident was when I was walking to school and I saw myself trip on my next step. I tripped alright. These visions still happen until this day.

One other gift that I have, is the ability to know what is going on around me, when no one else can. My instincts are so strong and precise, that it took me a long time to believe in them. Not listening to them has steered me down an awful path. Sometimes, I pick up on numbers and this can happen anywhere. I didn't play these numbers, but I sure wish I did. I was in church and the priest was telling a story from the bible when, certain numbers stood out that I felt had a significance.

The last scary encounter I had, was a few years ago. This was a different home where we learned that the owners wife had died there. My mother was now also hearing and seeing strange things. My dog was constantly barking upstairs in the bedrooms and at the basement door. I would also catch him sniffing the door. You could hear someone walking in the attic and certain spots of the house would be cold.

One night I came home late at night. I went upstairs to go to sleep. I put my pjs' on and went to lay down on my back. As soon as I closed my eyes, a heavy weight came over me, paralyzing my body instantly. I could not speak, or open my eyes. I knew I couldn't be sleeping, I had to find a way out of this. As much as I was shaking of fear, I calmed myself by praying. I prayed to all my dead family, saints and god. I prayed for a good few minutes, until I had the strength to slightly open my eyes to see what was a fog over me. I felt like it was trying to suck my breath. This was by far the scariest experience I felt. Thank god the praying released this thing off of me. I ran downstairs to tell my mother. My mother asked a priest to bless the house and us in the hopes of having positive energy in our home. It felt good, but the fear was still there.

I feel that I have an angel by my side, that guides me and helps me through life. I went to see a psychic one night to hopefully get some answers. She told me who I was dating, that I would be married and I would have a different career, which all came true. She also told me that I should listen to my instincts and to not be afraid of the gift I possess. My fear has made my gift dormant and I should embrace it again. I know I'm not going crazy, yet I still am afraid to truly embrace it again.

Two years ago, I envisioned that something would happen to my father, my aunt and my uncle near my wedding. A few weeks before the wedding, I get word that my uncle has a malignant tumor in his kidney and had to go for surgery. He couldn't make it to my wedding. My Aunt learned that both her kidneys are working 18%. My father was told that he has a mass in his lungs, but after several tests, they don't know what it is. He is awaiting a biopsy surgery.

My worst fear had come true and I don't know how I knew this. Just recently New Years' night, I fell asleep for 1 hr. I missed the ball drop. My husband said he tried shaking me, the phones were ringing and I slept right through it. He had to make sure I was breathing. I don't remember a thing and this never happens to me. When I woke up, I didn't know where I was, nor did I think I was sleeping. I asked him if he had spoken to his best friend. He said no. I asked again are you sure, because I heard the conversation. I was filled with anxiety. I was so certain that I heard them. He assured me he didn't and that I may have dreamt it. The conversation consist of his best friends grandfather dying. My husband looked at his phone and saw his friend had called. He called him and asked if everything was alright. His best friend said no, my grandfather died today. My husband looked at me, I couldn't believe it.

How do you explain this? How do you explain any of this? I really would like some answers. I know I have a purpose in life, I just don't know what I should do with these experiences. Should I be afraid? Should I embrace it? If anyone has similar experiences and can explain what this all means and what I can do to better understand it, please post your answers. Like I said before, I thought I was crazy, but after finding this site, I finally can share this with people who hopefully understand what I have been through. I thank you for taking the time to read my story and I hope it has helped some of you.

I post too many things separately by accident... Oh well... I found something really cool. Its called a tone generator. By using different audio frequencies, It can slowly bring your mind into different brain states - Alpha, Beta, Theta, and Delta. I used it last night when I slept to bring my brain into Theta. Not only did I fall asleep quickly, but I also had better sleep than I've had in a long time. Maybe it can help you with your meditation. Here's the link:

No problem Paola. I like the simplicity of Alabama, but sometimes, it just gets boring. I only lived in Rochester until I was 4, and then I moved here, so I don't really know if I miss it or not. I do miss the snow though. Recently, Last year, I went to Huston, Texas, and I love the big cities, so I think I wold like New York a lot. As for the virus... It came back... Kind of.

Thanks for responding hollinor and understanding. Anything you can share with me would be great. I feel for your daughther, I would definitely have her pray, it's always worked for me, and from what I understand others too. Razziiii, I added you to my favorites and I ordered the book! Thanks for thinking of my dad. I hope it is my nerves. I live in New York, and you? I wanted to ask you. I read about the chakra senses. Do you know of a great book I can buy? Alright, talk to you soon.
Ciao,
Paola ❤

Paola, I am very sorry about your dad, and I hope that what you saw wasn't a vision. It could be your nerves; who wouldn't be afraid to lose their dad? Even so, I will keep him in my prayers.

Also, I figured out the friends list and added you (actually its more of a favorites list, but it works). Next to peoples names on their profile, there will be a heart ❤. If you click on it, it ads them to your favorites list. This also works for stories.

Where do you live? Or rather, What time zone are you in (preferably in GMT format). My time zone is Central America (GMT-6). I will be on tomorrow at around 4:00 (my time). If you can, we'll get on and talk about things like this. Or if you want, you can email me at JakRazzi [at] gmail.com and we can talk about whatever.

I hope your dad gets well.

Hey Paola! Thanks for sharing your story. I can understand your feelings. I'm just glad to be able to come to this site and share my feelings (whatever they are) with others who can understand. Most people who don't have a gift will look at you crossed-eyed when you let on about what is going on in your life. I hope you continue to post more stories. I know there are situations I find myself in where I am freaked out and terrified, and others leaving me wanting experience more. You can feel glad to have your gifts one day, and the next wish you were "normal". All of these feelings are understandable. Very often I have to quiet my daughter's fears when she encounters some particularly scary spirit or shadow. But then she's happy when has dreams of good things that are to come in the future. So I guess you have to take the good with the bad. 😉

Hey Razzi! I googled the book title and you're right. I am really interested in reading it. The fact that the persons knowledge comes from the late 1800's-early 1900's sounds promising to me. Also, the fact that it got great reviews. Ecampus.com has the cheapest price $6.23. There is also a website with all his books. Http://www.edgarcaycebooks.org/ecguides.html. Wow 666? That is weird. It's probably just a coincidence. I can't wait to read your story, and I wish they did have a friends list, but I don't know. The other night I had a dream about a plane crashing and remembering there was a 7 involved, but I didn't think much of it. Yesterday, I heard a plane had a crash landing the boeing 57. Is this just a coincidence? Also, in my story, I mentioned that I felt my father getting sick and he is awaiting a biopsy test. Well, this morning I wasn't feeling great and I was thinking of going to get my phone to call in sick for work. A few seconds later I see myself falling down and landing on a body. I screamed NOOOO and I realized it was my father and uncontrollable tears came down my face. I don't know what to make of this. Could it be that I am worried about what they might find and a fear of him dying? It's just weird how it came suddenly into my thoughts and not having control of my tears. Any thoughts on this? Well, have a great day Razzi. Ciao

Im creeped out... I went to add that web site with the book to my favorites, and the last three digits in the url were 666...

Maybe my gut feeling is wrong for once (I doubt it though), or I could be overreacting.

I finished writing the story, and I hope it will be published soon. Also Paola, I was wondering if there is any kind of "friends list" or something on this site that I can use to add you. Let me know if anyone knows anything (Im new to this site).

Thanks!

Well thank you! 😁 I haven't personally read any books on it, but I did a little searching, and came up with this one:
"Awakening Your Psychic Powers: Open Your Inner Mind And Control Your Psychic Intuition Today "

Whew! Long name... It looks really good, and my gut instinct is never wrong... Or at least not yet. It looks really interesting, and I think I will probably get it. If do, I'll let you know what I think, and if its worth buying.

Also, I think the story writing function is back online, so I'll write my experiences and thoughts, then let you know when they're online. Like lights flashing everywhere I go recently 😕.

Gnite! ~Razzi

okay. Thanks for all the advice, I really appreciate it. Pandora, thanks for looking out =o). I look forward to many more comments. For future reference, can I get some more understanding on my experiences and maybe more insightful information on yours. I really want to compare and learn from our experiences. Razzi, I enjoy reading your comments :oP. Does anyone know a great book I can buy about psychic abilities and improving them? Let me know. Have a great night everyone.
Thanks,
Ciao Paola ❤

Paola for you infomation I wasn't even talking to you -.- and I didn't say you couldn't ask for help or be scared... I am speaking about the people who go completely ballastic.

Paola, for the most part I've been really polite on this site, I just had held my tongue too long on the subject and someone needed to say something about it, again I was never talking about you... I was speaking of the general public. If anything you should take it as constructive criticism. It's not negativity as more of speaking what I have seen what people do, and no I am not saying everyone is lying of course not, but you have to draw the line

aramasamara the only one making a big deal is you! This is my first time and I am sharing my experience and thoughts and yes I am afraid to further explore this without any knowledge. I do care, or I wouldn't have shared my story. I would like to learn more and be prepared. Tone things down? And have a real conversation? With the negative and sarcastic way you commented on my thoughts, I have to be honest, I do not want to conversate with you unless you have something positive to say! I am not here to trash someone elses thoughts, only to learn, share and understand. For everyone else thank you for being kind and understanding. Razzi, that is nice to know. I am Italian as well incase my name didn't give it away 😆 Anyway, I am on my lunch break, Talk to you soon.
Ciao, Paola ❤

Okay, "could handle it" come on... You either care or you don't...don't fear, fear is a waste of time, money and overall life... Pointless *in most cases*

Second, off we seem to have two extremes on this site either one wanting to become this magnificant prodigy or two complaining about how terrified you are. This is a site to hear others stories, not to burst about how you'll never live or how you can be the best.

No

If you want to further in practice, that's fine... But you don't need to make such a big deal, same goes for the other side

All in all let's tone things down and start having realistic conversations with better results... Does that sound like a plan?

Thanks Lonnie, Edmund and Razzi for posting! As much as I want to learn more about the psychic world, I am afraid of what I will encounter and if I could handle it. I would love to help people if I could, but I just don't like feeling scared. I wonder if there is a class or store I can go to, that can teach you on building these psychic abilities. Lonnie, I believe I have a guardian angel that protects me. I never asked his/her name. I will definitely try. Razzi, I totally agree with you on meditating. I have to put in the time. I forgot to add my other experiences, but Edmund, I was happy to know that this story could be yours. It just furthers my belief that I do not have an over active imagination. Well, if you have any more advice that can help me understand this, I would greatly apreciate it. Thank you all! Have a great night.
Paola ❤

I am very interested in this story, You said that you have a guardian angel with you (these are often known as spirit guides) these have been with you since birth and will remain with you for the rest of your life. Have you tried to talk with your guardian? You can do this a few ways, First meditate and think of yes and no questions in your mind (believe it or not spirits can read your mind so you don't have to speak outloud to them). The feelings of paralasis do bother me. Could this be because you were just in shock at the cold touch? Also try burning sage candles in your house (sage is a famous scent that is known to do cleansing). I think it would be very helpful to talk to your guide/angel, they often have very helpful info to give you and will always protect you when you ask. Once you do talk to your guide and it feels ok to respond to you, ask it for its name then from then on refer to him/her/it as that name.

Side Note Prayers of St. Michael tend to work very well when you find yourself in a state that you can't move.

Paola... First off your O.K. What you have experienced happens to a lot of people. If you changed the name it could be my story. I guess in a nutshell what I think happened is the first house was haunted and you and Mom at the time were a little more psychic sensitive than normal. As you get exposed to spirits, ghosts or a haunting you get even more sensitized to such things. I don't have a clue why but that's what happens the more you see or get involved in whether or not you want it... You get it... It could show up in many different ways you might see spirits or ghosts when most people don't... Maybe you get gut feelings or dream things... Pretty big list of possibilities there. Now it is tempered somewhat by prayer again the stronger your belief in prayer and God the better your results at keeping it at bay so to speak.

I always tell people to proceed with caution because you do need your feelings to guide you somewhat when dealing with spirits/ghosts you need to really reach inside and figure out if they are good, bad or whatever and that is the tricky part because most times evil can be tricky. And the last thing is is that it is always nice to know when there is some trouble down the road... A psychic radar so to speak ! 😁

Wow... That was so vivid and... I can't explain it but you described it very well. As for what to do with your ability, I sugest to take a day off to yourself, go somewhere in nature like a park, or the woods (somewhere away from people and man made things) and medtate and pray about it. When you isolate yourself, (at least for me) you can hear God's voice much clearer. But be careful. Make sure its God's voice telling you what to do. God will never go back on his word. So if it contradicts anything in the bible, don't listen to it! Good luck, hope this helped
