How Do I Know What Is Real?

 

Hi, my name is Nicole and I'm 25 years old. I've always thought I had an "active imagination" but now that I am older and more in tune with the ideas of mediums and psychics, I am beginning to feel like my random thoughts are something more. If I see someone walking in the dark or sitting alone at a bus stop I immediately feel terrified and feel like I see what is running through their mind. If someone I don't know brushes against me or touches my shoulder I get a flash of a random occurrence or possibly something that happened in their life. I have random dreams that, at the time, mean nothing but days to years later they come true. At night as I am falling asleep I hear knocks under my bed, doors slamming, conversations, and my name being called but I am alone in my apartment.

I periodically feel a presence in a room. I've never seen spirits or those that have passed on but I feel like I sometimes see things with my brain, if that makes sense. I look in a corner and physically see nothing but my brain registers that there is someone there.

I feel like my mind is always in high gear with thoughts, pictures, and people running through them but how do I know what is real and what is my imagination?

hollinor... In all honesty as a man I never ever cease to be amazed and impressed by the strength of a woman ! The selfless sacrafice that a mom has for her children is just one of many... It is a very long list. GlendaSC... Thats all I want to be is to kind of be a little voice who may give the listner a pause... I'll drag myself to the library and get those books to read !

Holli - you are such a dear person. I'm pretty sure of myself and outspoken on my opinions, even in life. Well I've had to work on teens, my own and some around. You get that way. They are all getting there I think, but it's brought me to my knees more than once.

Edmund - you have really been my answer. Voyages scared me so much. Now, I'm seeing them as they should be seen I think. I read a great book on the Holy Spirit. For me, it explained it. I understood a lot. I asked for the preacher to bring it up (in my mind) last Sunday. He has never in my years there. I didn't expect it. He preached on it. I was shocked. I'm still such a shaky person. I even told the hub that morning I wish he would. During church, the hub looked at me. I should be more confident in what I know.

This really isn't the best place for me to express my opinions. I feel badly about hurting Katie's feelings. I just say what I see. I'm working on that too. Sometimes it might not be time or the best thing. Sometimes computer writing seems like writing to myself instead of another human and it's too easy to say what I really think. If you ever want to say hi, please write me on email, but I think that I need to sign off here. My volunteer thing is really taking more time than I thought, and I decided to find a part time job to get out more and be with other people. My opinion of most isn't the greatest, in general, and I need to get in the real world and fix that a lot.

Thanks to you both. My best regards, blessings, and prayers to you. I do hope you read Billy Graham's book on the Holy Spirit. It really is good. Also the book, "23 Minutes In Hell..." I made my husband, busy as he is, read the first part and 30 or so pages over about the return. This man had a "trip..." like my early ones. My husband is still trying to understand trips.

I think of myself as pretty brave. I've kind of been forced into the situation. I have lived on my own and have been raising my children alone for going on 12 years. My ex-husband did nothing to care for me or our kids. Real world things don't scare me. I have been broke, homeless, and jobless before. I've never moved back home because I couldn't live alone, or let any man, other than my spouse, live in my home with me and my children. I have always done everything on my own (though, I didn't realize God was on my side the whole time!). I was run out of my bedroom because I didn't know how to fight a spiritual battle. Once I found out what to do to fight it though, I did it.

Holli - I have lately been trying to figure out a few things. Well, one thing is that the creator, whoever you like to recognize, God and his son for me, rate cowards with thieves. That shocked me. I can be such a big chicken. But, not usually. I usually face things, people are the least of it. I once told a man breaking in, I was 14 and babysitting, "I'm ready to meet my maker. Are you?" He had a weapon and I did. A stand off I guess. I knew I was going to stand. He talked a lot. Those were my only words. He left. I called my dad. It is the way I feel. I've taught all three kids to drive. It makes the hub uncomfortable. But, if it's time to go, I'll gladly go though I want to be here right now to help out. Still, it's not my choice. I do ask to be here and work hard, but it's not my choice. That's cool. I would never let anything scare me from my bed. Not a live person with a knife, not a spook. Being a single parent, you want to be here a lot. I can understand that. It's your weakness. Work on it.

Katie, I think that you heard about a stalker for awhile. You said he used to call her, he used to watch her. Sounds like she must have known about the stalker from the first. If someone wouldn't call me a bunch of times at work, how would I know if someone was stalking me? And being that you live with your sister under the same roof that you haven't heard about the stalker problem. You had a bad dream.

Katie I can agree that we are all different, however your not seeing my point. Some people have the ablitity right away to know what is real and what isn't, only in rare cases make a mistake here and there. You said, "You can't just say to someone that something bad is going to happen to someone they know" Katie, yes you can, I've told people that they've had tumors, even going to die, or told them a death of their family member. It's not hard for me to do it (usually) at all, maybe take some time for me to say it, but now it's so much easier and I've done it several times without hesitation.

hi hollinor I try changing things which are going to happen in the future. Future events but there usually bad one's for me maybe for other people. I usually dream about other people's health and I have dreamed about bad events. Like 2days before Christmas I had a dream about a man driving past my house and the first thought I got was don't look at him!
everything was negative about this man he wasn't good and he wouldn't care what he put people through. Before my sister walked in the room me and my mum said what ever you do don't look through the window! The next thing she did and the man was looking and all of a sudden he parked up on a drive with a bat. My sister ran to the door but she didn't make it cause she was running to lock the door and then man pushed the door and all of a sudden he was hitting her with the bat and there was screams. It was so scary that dream! It makes me cry now that a man could do that and not think twice before he did it. Then after the dream ended I got really upset ended up telling my boyfriend. My boyfriend told me to stay in the house for a few days and keep a eye on my sister. My sister she was ill for those days maybe someone did that so this experience wouldn't happen. 2 days later Christmas day we were opening up our Christmas presents and she told us she has found out she got a stalker how freaky is that! She kept getting phone calls of him and he was saying what she was wearing and that. He used to watch her when she was at work!

Katie, I don't know your stance on religion or God, and I don't want you to think I'm pushing it on you. I just want to tell you what I do for myself. When I have a dream or see something that I don't understand, but I know the outcome is negative, I pray. It's the only thing I can do when I don't have to power to understand it or change it. I had a dream just a few nights ago where an armless spirit came to me trying to relay a message. I don't know to whom or what the message was. But I did have a first and last name of the guy because I kept repeating it over and over again. When I got up I prayed and asked the Lord for peace for this person and for their family. I went on about other things as well. I was upset before hand, but after I prayed I felt a peace about the situation.

And you are right, you just can't run up to people and say, "Hey! I dreamt that you were decapitated in a car accident!" That's going to go over like a ton of bricks, LOL! So I pray and ask God for the wisdom to do what is right (whether or not to tell the person), and I also pray for protection for that person. I know sometimes he shows me things in advance just so that person can be protected from an accident.

I know of two occasions where my aunt informed me about impending danger for my eldest. Once she saw her run over in the parking lot in her dream. My daughter had a habit of breaking away from me after I got her out of the car. My aunt didn't know that, though. She told me to watch her like a hawk, and I did. Turns out a few days later it happened. I grabbed her just before she ran out into the front of a car speeding down the parking lot.

The second time my aunt said she dreamt about my daughter being molested by a man while she was sitting in a little yellow rocking chair. I was upset, of course, but I didn't know what that meant. I knew the lady who babysat her everyday had a little yellow rocking chair at her home, but only she and her mother lived there. A couple of days later she told me that her brother was getting out of jail and moving back in with them. I quickly made other daycare arrangements for my daughter!

hi aramasamara yeah I don't understand none of that you wrote. We all have different opinions cause its different for all of us. We are all different not the same. Sometimes you can get things wrong so you have to be careful in what you say. If had a dream about my nan getting rushed to hospital the people like my mum can get upset very easy if I just come out with nan's gona get rushed to hospital it isn't nice all I'm saying is make sure your over 50% sure its going to happen. You can't just say to someone that something bad is going to happen to someone they know. There be like what you saying that for.

Katie I have to disagree most of the time right away I can distungish from what is real and what isn't. Only in very rare cases, I think it's pretty clear, especially when you have certain signals that you use.

Its hard to know what is true and what is not but you go with your gut feeling. I get all nervous sometimes I keep things to myself then I try telling someone but it just won't come out but I like say just stay in or your just getting round saying it but the words you want to say don't come out! Cause your scared about it coming true but like you have 2% chance It won't. If loads of things like dreams come true your saying to yourself just hopefully just this one won't but you know it will but you just don't want to know and admit it. You try ignoring it but you just can't cause every time you try it gets to you more

That's not so easy to do when you're the only adult in a house full of children. I have to deal with things in a different manner. I did at some point start sleeping in the living room because I was terrified of sleeping in my own room. I eventually did go through and cleanse my house. Once I did that I was able to go back into my room. But like anything else, it starts building back up again. I am better able to deal with it when I have another adult in the house. Personally, I don't think there is a way to "get past" the noises. They are what they are, and so is what is making the noise. I'm a very light sleeper and I have to get up at 4am every morning. I don't have time to be up all night yelling at spirits to, "Go into the light!" I can sense and hear spirits and that's never going to change. They know night time is down time, when I am better able to hear what they want me to. So of course that is when the activity will pick up. I say "pick up" because I do notice it during the day as well. Anyway, cleansing is the only thing that works for me.

I do not think it is good to leave electronics on, one because it waste energy and is distorting the real problem, just like rattling fans, you need to get past the 'noises' and deal with them yourself, not paint over them.

Thank you for the feedback.
I don't know how I know but before I go to bed I can somehow tell when it's going to be a "noisy" night and I leave the TV on. I can just feel tension in the air. I don't know who they are, why they're around, or if they have something to say.
Thanks again!

I agree with aramasamara. When the thoughts come and they are way too quick and "out of the blue" for you to have come up with them on your own, then you know it's truth. My dreams that are premonitions look almost like they are transmited in HDTV, just very clear and very lucid. At night, I have to sleep with a very loud fan on in my room, or I will never get any sleep. The knocking, talking, and rustling would keep me up all night.

The only thing I am still trying to figure out between what is mine and someone else's, is my empathy. Yesterday though, I think I had a breakthrough. I was at home cool, calm, and collected. I decided to take the kids to Toys 'R' Us to use their Christmas gift cards. I'm driving along joking with the kids and then all of a sudden I feel irate, anxious, and my thoughts start racing. I angrily told the kids to be quiet, their voices sounded like nails on a chalkboard to me. I'm sitting at a light and I ask myself why I felt that way. Then I hear clear as a bell, "It's not you..." So I start telling myself that these aren't my feelings, over and over. A few moments later, the angry feelings were gone and I was back to myself again! I couldn't believe it. I usually just go along with along with whatever feeling it is. I felt so empowered getting past that negativity instead of being swallowed by it. 😆

hi I understand what you are going through I had dreams coming true about other people just bad future events really. I have heard spirits having conversations downstairs and voices in my mind I haven't imagined it either. I have seen spirits and If I can't see them I know when there there or I can hear them. I have been poked and touch by one as well. I can share my stories with other people cause sometimes they experience things. One of them can get spirit names and the other one knows about a future event before it happens. I'm used to all this stuff I had been through a lot of experiences last year

Well, your going to have to decide for yourself, but clear thoughts and pictures usually are real. You can usually tell right away by the reality of it, lucidity, and quickness of it.
