This is my first post so I apologize if I haven't gotten the format quite right. OK here is the story of my life. Abilities seem to have developed early in my life because from the earliest memories of my childhood I remember seeing shadow people, I am not talking about a random ghost sighting. I saw these shadow beings so often that I believed that it was just a normal thing that everyone experiences, that is until I walked into my parents bedroom when I was about 7 and had one of these shadows fly right in front of me. I, of course, was surprised that my parents didn't see it too and so that was the first time I mentioned it to my parents and they seemed slightly concerned at first but then just gave me a weird look and told me no. These beings were present everywhere, out in public, at friend's houses so that is why I don't just blame it on a haunted house.
Another thing I experience still to this day is that I can sense presences and when someone is approaching. This is something that I have always been able to do. When someone is approaching I feel a tingling sensation in the back of my neck and I get an intense ringing/electrical buzzing sound in my ears and then suddenly someone will suddenly walk up. One time I was sitting on the couch by myself in my living room and this happened to me and was followed by a knock at the front door (the door was closed so I know that I wasn't just hearing the person walk up).
I am also extremely intuitive. I get "feelings" about things and they are always right. I don't exactly know how to describe these feelings because it is just a sense of knowing. Like I can always tell when someone is telling me the truth or lying to me, I get different feelings for each. I can also tell when someone is going to die, it also works with animals. With my pets I always knew they were going to die a few days prior to them dying, same with my grandfather unfortunately.
Another thing that very well might not be a psychic ability but is sort of strange to me is that it seems as though I can control peoples moods or something. When someone is freaking out or angry all I have to do is think calming thoughts and that person seems to immediately become calm and not so upset anymore. But also sometimes emotions really have a negative effect on me, sometimes I feel like I am experiencing everyone's emotions. It is like all of their emotions are suddenly living inside my mind and it really leaves me feeling panicky and sort of worn out like I need to sleep or something. It is strange.
Another thing which I think is the strangest thing I experience seems like almost foresight or something. I see certain numbers everywhere and when I see these numbers it always is followed by something significant. My numbers that I see are 10, 28, and 7. I don't exactly get visions but I get a sense of "knowing" that I mentioned earlier. The number thing is extremely hard to really explain, but what happens is when I see any of these numbers I automatically feel an emotion. It is almost like I am getting a vision in the form of emotions. If I feel happy when I see these numbers something good happens, if I feel panic when I see these numbers something bad happens.
The last thing that I can think of is that I can see auras, I have read that everyone can do this with a little practice, but for me it has become the normal because I have just always lived with this for my entire life.
So there is my story, I am posting here in the hopes that someone will be able to relate because I just don't have anyone who truly understands what I go through and is willing to share openly. I haven't shared my experiences with anyone since I told my parents about the shadow people when I was 7 so I pretty much feel like a freak and I feel like I don't know how to handle these things I have been stuck with.
