Real Psychic Experiences



I'll bet majority of us here have been misdiagnosed with some sort of mental illness. ESPECIALLY depression or the new "black" aka bipolar! Lol. Omg. As a little girl I started speaking out about what I was seeing in my room at night. My mom just told me I was tired and would come in and rub my head until I fell asleep. By the time I was 15 I refused to let anyone dismiss what I was saying and then I found out my paternal grandmother was as they said a "seer" and read tea leaves every morning. I was so mad that no one told me before that. Because my mom had always tried to over excuse things and "hug" them away! By the time I found out my grandmother had been dead for 2 years. And still to this day my mom tries to excuse things. She even came to my house and washed the walls because she thought I needed a fresh environment for fresh thoughts about 5 years ago when I was gone on a business trip. Apparently Pine-sol gives me logical sane thoughts and should stop my nonsense. She would rather I have a mental illness then accept the truth. It really hurts me. Almost all of my family accepts my gifts and even seem very interested and excited. But still my own mother wants me to be diagnosed with a mental illness before accepting my gifts, that she obviously finds faults and embarrassing. And she's a really kind loving person but she just refuses this. She's not overly religious. She's normally a pretty easy going person. But I scare her. That's so sad. Why do we spark such fear in some people? What are they really scared of?

A thought occurred to me about your mom. She probably has or had abilities herself. She may have had negative experiences herself or she may feel guilty that she "passed it on" to you and wants to deny it.

Families will go a long way to denying reality. My mother was schizophrenic for years before I, the last of 7 kids, was born. I remembered the phrase "diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic" from when I was 7.

When my mom was getting Alzheimer's my brother said, "now she thinks people are poisoning her" which is a prime characteristic of Alzheimer's.

I say, "Don't you remember she always thought someone was poisoning her--the government, the Communists, etc. " All seven sibling denied that she was schizo. I even found the records 45 years later--30 pages of them. And all of my siblings denied it. They said things like "She went crazy to get back at Dad" or "She's no different than people who write to Mary or Jesus" (except that she had "manuscripts" from Archae Hope stacked 4 feet tall around her entire house.

My point--there are emotional reasons that prevent people from accepting reality. You will never get them to deal with it unless they deal with the underlying issues.

I haven't spoken to any of my family for 10 years.

Hopefully you can keep contact with your Mom.

My fear or my desire of my mother to finally "get me" comes from losing my father when I was 9 years old. Then my mother just lost herself... We were with sitters all the time. I've always tried to put myself in her position and felt bad and excuse everything that she has ever done. I guess one of my faults is that I think everyone's heart is like mine... Loves like mine. It's my own fault for believing that. It just hurts to realize your own mother's heart doesn't love as deeply as yours.

Wow thank you everyone... My mind is spinning right now. Not in a bad way... It's just opened to all of these new opinions and ideas from people who actually "get it". As I'm excited to really process everything said on this thread... For the first time I felt accepted and it was ok to talk about this... Thank you all!

Yeah I've been there, I feel your pain on that one, when I was younger but for me the parent who was like that was ironically my dad for years back when I was around 15, 16 or maybe 17 years old at the oldest. Heh talk about backwards huh?

They've tried to label me as depressed or possibly bipolar, because my mom is bipolar with borderline Schizophrenia, but they all, both my dad and a lot of different quack doctors through out the whole entire state have always Failed miserably, Hah hah, whenever they tried to label me with that kind stuff.
I've found for me in my experiance at least that the only easy way of dealing with that kind of sceptical parent is to not ever tell them about that kind of stuff again and to find someone else to talk about that kind of stuff to, like another one or your parents or even a close relative for example. 😊

My mom used to tell me I was just overly sensitive. Well she was right.:-) My hubby was a skeptic and then he saw a ton of my readings to others and how accurate. He saw me find missing children. Anyway now he encourages me. He's actually braver then I am at telling strangers, "My wife's a medium, she can talk to you dead mom if you want her to," (Not in those exact words, but he loves his tee shirt, "My wife's a rare Medium".
I am also bipolar, took lithium for 23 years until it destroyed my kidneys. I've learned how to know the difference between my chemical imbalance and a spirit contact in a reading, besides a reading is validated. Nothing wrong in helping people as a medium, and nothing wrong in having a chemical imbalance either.:-)

Yes, Christie, I agree with Mkmode--your mom probably does believe you --but thinks she can "cleanse" you out of it.

There is a lot of ignorance in the world--and always has been as far as people with psychic abilities are concerned.

There isn't much you can do except not talk about it to your mother. You don't have to deny what you see, know---but talking to her about it will just cause more judgment (from her) and strife. Is it really worth it? Talk to those who do believe.

At least you do have people around you who believe. I pretty much have to find friends on the web, like this. My hubby doesn't not believe, but doesn't believe. He doesn't really like talking about it, and for those developing, there are lots of things to figure out!

Good luck.

Hi AnneV, the issue Christie is writing about is not just a psychological matter. It is more serious.
Her own mother, from sheer narrow-mindedness, kept trying to talk her into the belief that she is somewhat insane! If she had succeeded, she would have made Christie's psychic gift and her sensitiveness useless. Christie would have resorted to not believe in herself and her own sense in favor of blindly adhering to half-knowing medical authorities and drugging herself!
This behavior of parents, quite well-meaning but blind and dangerous by their blindness, is a widespread problem, especially in U.S. I suppose - some years ago it was said in Europe that half the population of U.S. Were taking Prozac, for example. Why did they? In order to seem, or to be, "normal". The problem thus is a false public account of "normality", and this mother obviously either has been indoctrinated to believe in this erroneous image, or is narrow-minded by herself and thus believes in it by her free will.
A solution is not to be found on a psychological personal level, for "if you are alone and your opponents are many, they can do everything to you what they want" - no personal strength of character will be able to resist the rude force of psychiatric institutionalization and drugging! - but rather by building up a "Lobby" or self-defence organization for all those misdiagnosed and misdrugged, or in danger of being treated that way. Such a social movement is urgently needed, to defend the Godwilled variability of characters and opinions against the "hatchet, axe and saw" of those who try to create some kind of arteficial equality by psychiatric misdiagnoses and mass psycho-drug use.

I recommend to you: hear "Free Will" and "The Trees" of RUSH, from the 1980s, and read the lyrics of those songs. The latter song is about natural difference of individuals versus arteficial equality "by hatchet axe and saw".

You're an adult now and don't need (though you would like) the approval of your mother. You cannot (nor should you) change her just like she shouldn't change you. We are all individuals on our specific path towards the same goal. Everyone is at different spots on the same ladder. None to be judged for where another is at for they are all going in the same direction towards perfection.

It doesn't matter if she is not "overly" religious, she still is. And most mainstream religions are fear based with all the power taken away from the individual and given over to the church (despite Christ saying that you'd find him under a rock, meaning his spirit is everywhere, not just in a church but that's a whole separate issue).

If you can, put your historical child anger aside and forgive your mother. She is where she is at and you are where you are at. Should we hold anger over children for being naive? Or despise an ignorant first grader? Of course not. That's where they are at. You just be kind to them, listen, but live your own life. She will get there eventually, though not in this life and that's okay. It's the ego that has to transform another "to be like me".

What people are afraid of is multi layered; rejection from the public, going to hell, death, loss of the ego. Why do you think every developed nation is loaded up on drugs for depression and anxiety? It's so bad in both Britain and America that it's now in our drinking water in measurable amounts. Fear not only dictates all societies but is specifically used for control by the main stream media, religion, government and even relationships.

The question to be asked of you is, why do you care what your mother thinks? I don't care what my mother, sister, or friends think of who I am. You're afraid too, just like the very people you question in your last paragraph. You fear the same rejection/isolation, but on a different level. Your "hurt" is your fear.

Thanks for sharing.

lison I hink your mother realy dose believe you and that's what scares her some people are scared of the unknown and to her your her baby girl and shes just trying to "scare the boggy man away". She probly thought that your grandma was mentally ill and never belived her becouse she was afrade of her to. Look your mom probly gose by the rule "seeing is beliveing" and becouse she has never saw a spirit she dosent just not beleave she refuses to beleave. If you can some how get her t beleave that if she loves you that she needs to exsept you then your relation ship will be all right
