Real Psychic Experiences

Do You Think I'm Gifted?


Since I was very young, I've always been intrigued by the supernatural and things of that nature. I still am to this day, even more so now.

I used to say there were two men standing at the foot of my bed every night. Men who weren't physically there upon inspection of my parents. I went to my grandmother's one day around the same time of those experiences and saw a photograph. I'd said this was one of the men; it was my late grandfather who'd passed before I was born. I never figured out who the other man was, though. They're not with me anymore, unfortunately. I liked to think of them as comforting figures.

Now, around 10 years later, I'm still seeing things. Shadows and human or non-human faces out of the corner of my eyes. I hear laughter and talking that is non-existent, even after trying to find a cause of it. A lot of the time, before I go to sleep, I hear talking. Friends, family, people saying things to me when I'm half-conscious. Sometimes it's random, and other times it's actual conversations.

My other experiences have to do with 'knowing' things. I'll get panicky and anxious, only to find out that whatever I'm stressing about (seemingly ridiculous) happens. Like when I'd gotten upset about driving at night in the rain. It became hard for me to breathe, and I wanted to tell my mother to slow down as we drove. We drove around a bend and a truck was up ahead a few feet, going slow enough to cause an accident if my mom hadn't been paying attention. Actually, my mother does the exact same 'knowing' thing.

For my entire life, I've been very in tune to others' emotions. Seeing a someone cry brings tears to my own eyes. I know immediately if my mother is upset with me; I know if my father is about to be set off and I wait for him to settle down.

That's not a bad thing at times, though. I know whether or not to bring something up. Or, whether I need to do chores when I get home from school, because I feel the tension before my mother and I even talk. I've even done experiments to try to guess how people are feeling before I speak to them. 9/10 times I'm spot on and I end up either A) trying to help people with their problems (A LOT) or B) sharing good news with them. I feel as though I am going through the same thing.

Often nowadays, I go on what I call an 'emotion overload', where I basically boil over with emotion and have a meltdown over something small and unimportant. It kind of feels like I'm sucking everyone's emotions up throughout the day and then letting it out through myself.

Over all, I'd just like an opinion: Does this sound like valid psychic/medium occurrences, or am I just overreacting and becoming obsessed? If I do, what type (s) of gift (s) do I have? Any help would be great:)

Empath - that's what the word is! 😆 I was looking around this site and noticed some similar posts having to do with empathy and was wondering if I possessed that sort of power - thanks for confirming that, haha! I have those visions- I guess you could call them:) - happen occasionally (or maybe I'm just not paying attention) but I'm thinking I got these from my mother. She's been having these all of her life, and they come through as anxiety. Well, I'm definitely going to stay in-tune to things more often! Thanks!

That was pretty cool story you have maddie. Well you are pretty gifted to have such awesome abilities. Although there are some times in life when you can know something in advance and you can change what's coming and sometimes you can't do anything to stop the coming even knowing that. So try not be upset about such things. Like you I am an empath too. I know how others are feeling but I don't suck their emotions or anything. I try to show care and love towards other that makes me more stronger and not to mention you can also avoid sucking up emotions from others when you heart is filled with light and love. 😁

It sounds to me you've got quite a bit of psyche in you. With the spirits, that's really cool. To be able to see/hear them is a sign that you're pretty advanced. I can feel them, but rarely see/hear them in the physical (ish) form. To me it's just a knowing, and occasionally a spirit ball or shimmer.
The visions, if I can call them that, are super awesome. I don't know if there are terms people use, but in my opinion we need some new words to describe them. Piece of advice? Don't brush them off as a normal thought. But, like with auras, don't think to hard about them, or you'll loose/corrupt them.
The feelings of others I do know the 'technical' term for. It's called an empath when you can feel the feelings of those around you. This can be dangerous, like you said with sucking up everyone's emotions. I've not had much personal experience with empath, but my mom sorta does. This is the best she's been able to clear. Acknowledge that it's someone else's feeling, and then say ok, this is how they're feeling, now I'm going back to how I'm feeling.
Hope this makes sense. I'd love to talk to you about other psychic expiriances, or just to talk. Alliania.energies [at]

Well, your experiences defiantly sound valid to me, and I'm new at all this. With the seeing things and the voices, it sound's like you're probably a Medium. And with your feelings you get, possibley Precognitions or Clairsentience. I don't know much about these things, but I hope that helped!
