I am at a point in my life where I am not exactly sure whether I have psychic abilities or just an uncanny ability to read people along with incredible intuition. It started with the basics when I was in my early teens (that I know of) - picking up the phone seconds before it rang, thinking of someone and having them contact me minutes later, saying something random that someone else was thinking or thinking it right before they say it, things like that. I figured those things were just normal and due to close relationships that I had with certain people. Then one day, a two friends of mine and I decided to talk to a psychic at a school event just for the heck of it. The things she said about the first friend were just things about his personality which anyone could have guessed. She told my second friend things that made no sense at the time (they did a few weeks later). But when she got to me, she immediately told me that she felt a very strong energy coming from me & asked if I had psychic abilities. Because I didn't believe in it then, I said no, and as she continued the reading, I was astounded at how accurate she was about what I wanted to do with my life, etc.
Years passed and the things she said to me started becoming reality, however, nothing major made me feel like I had any sort of ability. The second time I encountered a proclaimed psychic, he also said that there was a strong psychic energy from me. I had always been very good at reading other people, especially when it came to their character, and sometimes I knew the type of person someone was without even exchanging words- even when no one else saw what I saw. I could also read situations and predict what would happen before it did. I always just figured I was intuitive to little things and details that others missed. What really freaked me out, though, was when I would get a really random thought it my head that I had no idea where it came from, and then it would happen. For instance, while at work one day I thought about one of my former associates who had left months before and randomly wondered if her boyfriend had given her a ring he had purchased a while ago and if she liked it. Literally two minutes later I get a text from her with a picture of the ring that said "look what I got!". Then another time I was volunteering at a children's hospital (It was a once a week type of thing- but I hadn't been there in a couple of weeks and hadn't seen my supervisor in probably a month) and I actually played out a scenario in my head where my supervisor came up to me and told me she was pregnant and I even played out my own reaction to it, etc. Maybe 30 minutes later I ran into her, and after we chatted a few minutes she said "I don't know if you know this, but I'm pregnant"! On top of that I have a strange ability to know the sex of someone's baby before anyone ever finds out.
Things like that just keep happening, but it's not something I can make happen, it just comes in my head or it appears as an overwhelming feeling. I really don't know what to make of any of it. I feel like my mind is all over the place, constantly running with no way of controlling it or just concentrating on one thing. Honestly, I would just love some input or advice because everyone else just thinks it's all in my head!
