I Realized I Have Powers, Or Is It In My Head?


I've have had experiences that nobody can explain. First off I was in denial throughout my experiences. I am going to get personal because this is my first experience I had. When I was 12 years old my older brother passed away. That day he passed away I knew for some odd reason that something very bad was going to happen to my brother. Well later that night my brother passed away in my house and I knew that he was dead before anyone else. I felt guilt for a while after that because I should have followed my instinct. He killed himself in my house.

Ever since than I didn't believe in God or higher powers, but my mediumship was always there. This made me go into denial about my powers. Again I kept on pushing it back and trying to figure, out why I felt the things I felt. I tried to debunk everything and nothing can explain as too how I knew my brother was dead before everyone else. Nobody can explain how I knew my best friend cousin died two weeks ago. How can anybody know such things or sense spirits like I do?

I always knew when something happens because I have this strong feeling. Also I always feel the presence of my brother. I smell flowers and I know it is him. I have felt my great grandmothers spirit. All of the feeling are warm when they come by. When I am near a bad spirit I can feel uncomfortable, stressed, angry, etc. I can tell if they are male or female and know what kind of personality they have. I think because my powers are getting stronger spirits shadows have been appearing at my house lately.

So I need comfort because do any of you feel what I feel with spirits? I don't want to feel like I'am crazy. I already told three friends and my boyfriend (he can see spirits). I just want to know I am not alone in feeling the spirits. Can anyone help me realize that I do have this?

thank you so much. I will try this next time I get anxious. I was at the book store and I got anxious, ironically near the mediums section. But I did calm down. I will try the barrier again. Thank you

I'd say so, yes - but I'll give you a bit of a warning: Belief is key.

For example, if you believe in God (which I do, to some extent), then there is no reason saying a prayer should not work. If you don't (or do), then a shield will be equally effective. If you don't believe in any of this, then the very act of not believing in the entity should be enough to protect you. Your willpower is stronger than any entity on this planet, so long as you believe it is.

You can also try to ignore the entity completely - try focusing on something calming (watch some TV, read a book, surf the internet). Granted, it can be hard to do this with something staring at you, but eventually the entity will "take the hint" & go elsewhere.

Finally, try asking yourself "why am I anxious when this spirit is around?". Try to find why the spirit makes you anxious - it could even be something as simple as a fear of ghosts (just because you have abilities doesn't mean you won't be afraid of them). One way to resolve this conflict is to remember that the ghosts are (probably) not leaving anytime soon, so why not make them a part of your life?

Thanks for everyone that responded. Sorry for the delayed response I didn't have internet for a week. But anyways, fossilera. And zin, yes I agree with everything that you both say. I will take both of your advice. Some of these spirits they do annoy me but I just know it is bad. I got a bad vibe so I will now sheild myself because I don't want no bad spirits bothering me. Also apperently Iam a empath. It does make sense now because I didn't know what a empath was.
My one friend is a medium too and I asked her for help. She has been helping me through this as well. She isn't a empath, but at least I have somebody that can understand what I feel.:) also I feel better that I'm not crazy:) . I'm glad at least now I can talk to people on here about it.

Zin, I never thought about that with the smelling flowers! Humm maybe he is trying to help me. Makes sense he was my big brother and was alway protected me.

Question for all of you. I do suffer from anxeity, but again on medication for my attacks. Sometimes when there is a spirit it get me very anxious. How can I stop that from happening? Can I say a prayer or again put the barrier up?

Well, what's happened is probably you do have psychic powers, a very clear vision of what will happen soon.

As your brother had killed himself, some things may be a slight bit harder to explain, as we do not have any evidence why he did so to associate with spirits, etc.
The rest I will make an attempt to explain:-
The scent of flowers - This may be one of the ways how you may try divert your thoughts to a more pleasant event, cheering you up after experiencing your brothers death.
Your grandmothers spirit - This may simply be how your grandmother can still care for you, even if she is not physically there. Usually, ghosts and other spiritual beings will try to do as much as they can for even a stranger, learning this from their previous lives.

As for the final paragraph in your story, don't worry too much about it, as you are not crazy and have many others in the world who can sense things the same you do, myself included. You can talk to me about it whenever you need to.

Hi IloveCats,

I'm just going to add a couple things onto Zin's post (as it's some really good information).

You're not alone in being able to "feel spirits". I can sense (and sometimes see them), and there's at least several more people on here that can do this.

What I wanted to add is that if any of the spirits seem to be "getting to you" (such as interrupting your sleep, seem threatening, or just plain annoy you), you may want to consider "shielding". Basically, all shielding does is create a "barrier" around you (much like a physical shield on a knight). They can take on any form (you imagination is the limit).

You also don't have to be good a visualization to create one either - Your "shield" could be the smell of flowers on a summer day, or the sound of waves crashing on a beach, or the heat from the first rays of a sunny day (or the sun itself). In addition to using them for "protection" (used loosely, as something can only harm you if you let it), you can also use them to "filter" out the phenomenon you don't want to experience (such as seeing a ghost at the foot of your bed every night).

On a side note, I was told once a while back that in the spirit world, anyone that can sense spirits stands out like a huge beacon. From past experiences, it's almost as if the ghosts "seek" us out because they know we can sense them (and possibly help them out). I know it sounds like a typical "movie", but maybe the reason you are seeing more spirits is because you were meant to help them (or your powers are getting more enhanced, as you said).

Hmm, well the answer to your first question is you need to ground yourself. This is basically done through mediation and by finding out who you really are. Which time depending may or may not take some time to do. For mediumship once this state is aquired it is best to just clear your mind and given time you will start to see thing that are not there, spirits. After that point it is just getting better at doing it.
