I Think I Inherited Psychic Abilities


I have had experiences, some of which I don't know what to make of and make me feel crazy. If I do possess what I alternately refer to as a gift and a curse, I know it was inherited from my mother, who inherited it from my grandmother. I have had many experiences over the years, however, they have increased in the last 2-3 years. It is now to the point where I do not feel comfortable sleeping alone (and often don't), and am afraid of the feelings and things I have seen in the dark. It feels strange when you feel you're the only eighteen year old afraid of the dark. I guess the only way I can receive input, though, would be to share some of my experiences:

- I was talking to my mom about when I was younger. She shared with me that when I was about 3 I used to communicate (without speaking) with my eldest cat, and one day she found me outside on the other side of a huge lake that was behind our house and when she asked me what I was doing, I told her that the cat had told me to go with him for a walk around the lake.

- She also told me that I used to tell her that a woman would pinch me when I was sleeping and that she wanted to hurt me, that's when my fear of the dark began.

- But even before those, when I was about 1(1/2)- 2, my parents were very involved in the church and would take my along. They said people with different ailments (back problems, etc.) would allow me to lay hands on them and they would come back to the next group meeting the following week, saying they had not felt that relieved in a while.

I didn't really experience anything significant again until high school, when I began to reoccur intensely.

- I know it was October of 2006 (I was a junior in high school and still taking the bus to my mother's job to then drive home when she could leave the office). That day we stopped at my grandmother's house, as we sometimes did, on the way home, but this time a relative, whose daughter had died about two years before, was there. She wanted to give my mom a box of her late daughter's belongings to send to a psychic in Northern Florida, to find out exactly what had happened to her daughter. My mom sat on the end of the table and the woman sat with the box across from me. I wasn't sitting for 5 minutes before my mom saw me turn bright red and begin to choke, gag, and vomit (what I can only describe as feeling like an acidic substance from the pit of my stomach rise up into my throat, burning it.) It was so intense that I remember sticking my finger in my mouth to make sure I wasn't throwing up blood (because it tasted like something acidic and metallic(almost like blood)). It subsided after a couple of minutes. The woman is a sensitive, and the look on her face was that of knowing and understanding. The experience exhausted me and I didn't regain my full energy again until the next day.

As it turned out, her daughter was murdered and investigators believe that she was forced to drink a toxic substance before being dying.

- My mom brought the box home and put it in the garage. A few nights after that I was trying to fall asleep in my room, with the lights off and the door open. I heard someone call my name sweetly from the hallway. It sounded like a woman and I thought it was my mother, but she was asleep and there was no one else in the hallway, so although scared, I tried to go back to sleep, but then I heard it again, this time somewhat more persistent. One of my cats, who almost never left my side at night, I think, sensed my fear and she slept on my stomach facing the opening to my door the entire night. All in all, however, I didn't get a very good nights sleep.

- This past fall, as I slept in my mom's room (as I normally do now), I was drifting off to sleep. Suddenly I got one of those not alone feelings, and woke up face to face with a woman with a rather large full face, almond shaped eyes, large full lips, wide nose, and hair pulled back and picked up. Unlike in other times, I didn't feel frightened. Two days later my mom got a call in the car about a very close relative who died just a few hours before. When I described who I saw to my mother, she just broke down crying and didn't doubt that it was her who came to say goodbye (she still lived in FL) one last time.

- Some other random experiences involve multiple deja vu experiences, My mom, brother and I will be driving and I'll see a place (building, person, house, etc...) that I recall from a dream or sometimes I don't even know from where I remember it from. I even saw the layout of one of the buildings that the majority of my classes are in even before I began applying to colleges.

- I, as well as my mom, have been known to send appliances hay-wire. I have sent off un-connected alarm sensors, DSL boxes, microwaves, and most frequently, my iPod (I have had 2 so far and I will fully charge it, and the battery will drain after minimal use (my friends would laugh at me since theirs would last for hours)).

- Also, sometimes when I get angry, things will fall and some people around me will drop whatever they're holding.

- Often, sometimes when I am alone somewhere alone at school, but especially when I am home, I often get the feeling that I am not alone, that something is standing beside or behind me and often catch glimpses from the corner of my eyes, as well as hear a tone that often turns into a static noise and I cannot make it out.

As a side note, I'm not sure if it means anything, but I tend to avoid crowds and am careful about the people I am around because I often feel drained and pick up on their emotions. Even at school, during my breaks, I can be found in the quietest, most isolated lounge areas. Some of the worst times for me are lecture halls, where some of my courses have up to 300 present.

Also, ever since I was small, my mother recalled to me, I could tell her if someone was good or bad and I was usually right. I still do that to this day. She also possesses some of the same things and has also experienced many things since she was young. Hers, however, seem more developed and she, in the past, has spoken to and interacted with the spirit of an old man.

Please feel free to post any advice about these experiences. I'm not sure I want to continue experiencing these things, but at the same time, I feel as though I should embrace what is happening because they don't seem to want to lie dormant, and see it as a gift.

Don't put children next to a sick person, it drains their energy. True!

I am absolutely amazed right now. I can say that all of what you described happens to me as well, especially feeling like your not alone, and being hyperactive when you were younger. I am of Sephardic descent, I would love to talk to you about stuff, I am currently a freshman at the University of Colorado, and I would love to be connected with another Sephardi.

Oh My, How I can relate to all of you's is Big Time, and others to that have left comments... This is the hardest thing ever to explain to another person, without someone assuming you are 1. Crazy 2. They just think, you are trying to act like your special 3. Or thy think you have serious drinking or drug problems. Both my parents when young have had psychic experiences and my mom could sense things about to happen also my dad. Well I don't really want to go into this long detailed story but... I since a young child have had so many experiences and can remember them as clear as day. Now how that is who knows but I know one thing for certain if you have ever listend to someone who is tryig to explain thier experiences to you, You will notice there is no hesitation no pauses it just flows out of thier mouth non stop and sort of uncontrollably this is how I am. When I have a psychic experiences it's like this big urge to spit it all out non stoping you can't stop talking there is no hestitation in your voice. So for me this is why I know I have this psychic ability's... I don't he haw around the bush or stop and think and then explain. I'm not trying to brag but it is how I am. I don't talk about my experiences much because of the fact people are not understanding to these experiences that we others have. I don't consider myself special or have not pursued any type of readings or healings this is not in my forcaast, yet what is in my forcast is that I sense Iam a being used as a channel to see what is to come and to be let known of other enitys that exsist and much more connected to the universe I have had ailen and UFO experiences also... If anyone out there can realte to this I would really like to hearit cause this can be a very overwhelming experience to the point of sleepless nights and how to process it all Thank you for hearing me voice my side of it all thank you so much NSG52

Dont feel alone about being afraid of the dark. I'm scared too, so I know how you feel. I also get those "not alone" feelings and here people whisper my name sometimes (mostly at night). And the catching a glimpse thing, I get that too! But its more like a quick blotch of color:P...Well,at least I know I'm not crazy. I don't know if this will help but try to take control of your abilities.

Every thing you all are saying sounds so familiar. I'm so relieved to find this site. Sounds like your guide is letting you know their around when you need them. I to am an empath. I still haven't quite learned how to protect myself. I feel the s ame way about crowds and nagative people. They really drain us. Right now I'm trying to fiqure out what is draining energy from my house and my family when were in it. I think it may be geographical... Any ideas on how to tell. Good luck and PEACE apryl rayn

I think it's so odd that psychic people are not only sensitive in a spiritual sense but also in a physical sense, and we get these ailments. I went to doctor after doctor and no one could find anything wrong!
You remind me a lot of myself even though your gifts are different. You said you weren't sure you wanted to keep experiencing these things... I hope you don't try to stop them from working. They are something that makes you beautiful and unique. Goddess gave them to you. I know it's hard sometimes. But it's good you have a psychic mother. Mine is too, not as much as yours, and no matter how well you get along sometimes I don't tell my mom things because it's just weird to tell your mother everything lol, but it does help to have another psychic in the family around!

Before I have a vision my acid reflux acts up really bad. Then usually after the vision the reflux just poof is gone. Depending on how strong the vision is depends on how stong the acid reflux is. Sometimes is very mild other times very bad like the other day when I had the vison" Vision of missing people".
Sensitive to all kinds of medications but not to foods.

Actually, soundofwings, I do suffer from allergies and sensitivities to foods. I am allergic to peanuts, sensitive to tree nuts and am lactose intolerant.

I actually don't, except one allergy to a pain killer, but I am going to make sure in a week or two it's to nothing else. Also, my headaches are different in that I do not suffer the normal symptoms of most headaches such as stomach sickness.

One other thing, do you ever get sick to your stomach? I know some people get migraines that are associated with this. I've always had a really bad stomach illness and am wondering if it's not somehow related. I think I read somewhere that a lot of psychics have allergies to food. I know I do. Does anyone else on here have that?

Oh yeah, I also get deja vu and feel like I've been somewhere before. Sometimes it's not the way a place looks though, it's how it feels, the locations energy, and I feel like I've felt that energy before.

I pick up emotions too and don't like crowds. My guides used to tell me not to go into grocery stores and so my mom would have to go in all the time. Sometimes I swap energy with a sick person. I don't know how it happens. They're sick and I'm fine and in an instance it's the other way around, they're fine and I have their symptoms. I also know when someone is good or bad and ever since I can remember my mom would ask me about who to trust or not trust. I generally decide immediately wether I like a person or not. I start feeling sort of panicked in crowds sometimes, like I don't want to be here, I don't want to be here! Playing in my head over and over and sometimes I get butterflies with it.

The fact that people used you as a child to heal themselves was a selfish act on their behalf. When negative energy is taken into the spirit from another person it drains us of our own spiritual energy. You need to learn to block the negativity that is emanating from those around you. It's difficult to block out auras that are in need of healing. I learnt to do it through ignoring the pull of these Psychic vampires. You can't be at peace within yourself until you accept that you can't help everyone. This may seem selfish in a sense but if you don't learn to block the pull from your emphatic heightened spirit you will forever feel isolated and drained of energy. I would often get complete strangers come to me and unload all of their woes and want to touch me. You have a powerful beautiful spirit and you have to learn to control that power. Start in small measures by using your inner voice to repel rather then to attract peoples spiritual pain. I can't really explain how I did it I think I just accepted that I did have a gift and I couldn't live my life with the burden of everyone else's problems creating noise in my mind. Control is the issue here perhaps some spiritual workshops or positive visualization exercises use a bright light white or blue to help create your own personal shield. Peace be with you.

you are an empath. Fear ia a tool of the devil. Stand strong, you have a gift. Use it and fine tune it. You also have very strong intuitive feelings. I too can "tell" if somone is good or bad etc. And usually right

I completely understand where you are coming from. I have been different my entire life, it's genetic for me. The women in my family have been like this for at least 6 generations and we each have different strengths. For me, it's dreams about strangers that come true, strange feelings of foreboding, but the strongest things are the visions which are usually accompanied by a feeling of "not being alone" as you've described it. What I can say to this is that if it's getting stronger, as you say it is. You need to remember to be strong. You have a gift that can sometimes be very scary but if you know how to control it, you should be fine. When I was a teenager I didn't understand what was happening to me exactly. But now that I'm in my 20's I'm better able to control it. Just remember, you're the boss, not whatever you've tuned into. That and find as much legitimate literature as you can. I've found personally that books written by others with the same abilities made a major difference in understanding why I am the way that I am and how to channel it and control it better. Hope this helps.

My advice. Stand powerful. Never back down in fear. It feeds on fear. I will willingly go when it is my time. Gladly. Hope to be around until 90. That's my goal. Set your goal. I keep safe, but know when to show my power. Mostly when in the mood, but I am grateful for protection too. Grateful is good. My hubby's goal is 102. Well, he's a little older. Hope I don't have to be around that much. Hope I don't have to come back. Period. Just recently set it, but I will go now if I'm taken. Can't explain that, but have always been that way. I'm very happy, happy childhood, happy adult time, but just how it is for me.

I can't stand being in places with many people either I hear snippets of peoples thoughts sometimes and when there's lots of people around it gets so much 4 me that it ends up being like a radio tuned half into 1 station and half another as I hear lots and lots of thoughts all at once and it gives me migraines, my mates don't know about my "gifts" but they always wonder why I hate being in town.
