Characteristics of Psychic People


Updated August 11, 2012:   There is a survey you can take for a small fee.  You can find it here:  The Survey for Psychic People.Also, you may or may not have noticed the large number of votes, many of them negative.  A few months ago a bunch of skeptics came through and downrated all of my main posts and even some of the comments.  It was a pretty chickenshit thing to do.

Also, I now have a post specifically on the physiology of psychic people.

I’m moving this blog post to a permanent page because of its continuing popularity. The general lack of information on this subject has moved my article to the top of Google searches on this topic. I will update this as more information becomes known. You can contact me about anything you find or your personal impressions by e-mailing me at craigatweilerdotcom.

If you’re experiencing stress and anxiety I have two posts on this subject as well: Stress and Anxiety in Psychic People, Psychics and Depression.

We are definitely different physiologically. No doubt about it. The traits I’m listing here will no doubt vary from person to person and I hope everyone understands that I have no formal studies to back this up. I am culling information from a variety of sources, but it is certainly not definitive by any stretch of the imagination so keep that in mind. It is entirely possible for this list to be wrong in some areas and I have no way of knowing. I’m doing the best that I can with what’s available, and that isn’t much. Here goes:

First on the list is a love of animals. Rupert Sheldrake did telephone surveys in a number of geographical areas and found that people who reported psychic abilities were significantly more likely to have pet(s).

My own experience is that psychic people, if they can accommodate them, have multiple pets, often of different species. We have seven cats, four pet mice and a snake.

Update: I have now heard from several psychic people that they experience hypersexuality. (I suppose I fit in this category, I don’t really know for sure.) I take this to mean that they have a stronger than normal sexual drive. I do know that I, um, relieve this tension regularly with or without the help of my wife otherwise my brain is constantly filled with sexual fantasies. Whether this makes me a normal guy or not I can’t say. However, some of the people commenting on this are women, where this sexual overdrive would more likely stand out so perhaps there is something to this.

What part of sensitive don’t you understand?

It is well known in scientific circles that psychic ability can be affected by the researcher. A person who is an absolute die hard skeptic will have a huge negative effect on the ability of psychics to perform and in those rare cases where they actually do research, their tests almost always come up empty, thus confirming their beliefs. In paraspychology, this is known as the Wiseman Effect. Named after Dr. Richard Wiseman, a die hard skepic, whose experiments could only detect psi if he wasn’t involved in them.

Why does this effect exist? Because psychic people are far more sensitive emotionally than most people realize. Kyra Mesich, outlines 10 traits that describe this sensitivity in this article:

1. Emotionally sensitive people feel emotions often and deeply. They feel as if they “wear their emotions on their sleeves.”

2. They are keenly aware of the emotions of people around them.

3. Sensitive people are easily hurt or upset. An insult or unkind remark will affect them deeply.

4. In a similar vein, sensitive people strive to avoid conflicts. They dread arguments and other types of confrontations because the negativity affects them so much.

5. Sensitive people are not able to shake off emotions easily. Once they are saddened or upset by something, they cannot just switch gears and forget it.

6. Sensitive people are greatly affected by emotions they witness. They feel deeply for others’ suffering. Many sensitive people avoid sad movies or watching the news because they cannot bear the weighty emotions that would drive to their core and stick with them afterwards.

7. Sensitive people are prone to suffer from recurrent depression, anxiety or other psychological disorders.

8. One the positive side, sensitive people are also keenly aware of and affected by beauty in art, music and nature. They are the world’s greatest artists and art appreciators.

9. Sensitive people are prone to stimulus overload. That is, they can’t stand large crowds, loud noise, or hectic environments. They feel overwhelmed and depleted by too much stimuli.

10. Sensitive people are born that way. They were sensitive children.

There are a couple different responses kids have to their sensitivity. One type of sensitive child is the stereotypical kid who gets picked on by bullies, and is a well-behaved, good student because she cannot stand the thought of getting into trouble. The other type of sensitive child more often experiences the stimulus overload mentioned in the previous paragraph. These children are thus over stimulated and have difficulty focusing, which causes them problems in school.

Sensitive people typically exhibit all or nearly all of the above descriptors.

One of the sure signs of a truly sensitive person is that he feels animosity toward his sensitive nature. Most sensitive people whole-heartedly wish they were tougher and more thick-skinned. They feel like their sensitivity is a weakness. They wish things didn’t bother them so much.

You can search this by the initials HSP, which means highly sensitive person. Ms. Mesich goes on to say that this emotional sensitivity is linked to psychic ability. This link between emotional sensitivity and psychic ability is well known and has been well documented by others as well.

We are not Muggles

In addition to to this sensitivity, there is apparently some interesting brain wiring going on, something that researcher Dean Radin mentions in his book Entangled Minds.

It appears that people with psychic ability can form habits, just like everyone else, but have more difficulty holding on to them. That is to say, the habits don’t “stick” as well as with less psychic people. I’ve noticed this myself with some of the most ingrained habits I have. I’ll forget which shoe I normally put on first, or I’ll suddenly put a sock and a shoe on before I start on the other foot. I will do it normally a thousand times in a row, but then the next time is different. Improvising, on the other hand, comes easily to me.

For her book Your Sixth Sense, Belleruth Naparstek interviewed 43 professional psychics to find out what traits they shared. She did her homework and the results were interesting . . .

Traits that popped out were bilateral dominance (some degree of two-handedness or two-sidedness as opposed to leading strictly with the right or left side.), the presence of some talent and experience in the arts, usually in more than one area.

She referred to a tendency towards minor dyslexia, but this could be the trait mentioned above.

They showed a powerful need to spend time alone and time in nature on a regular basis.

They showed a tendency to be a night owl and sleep very little, with frequent interruptions in sleep. (More than what can be accounted for by aging. and menopause.). She goes on to say that all of us are wired for psi from birth, but some are more wired than others.

Other traits include inborn right brainedness; imaginativeness, spontaneity and strong spiritual leanings from a very early age. Most people can point to one or two family members who also had exceptional psychic abilities.

Puberty accelerates psi expansion and for women, pregnancy and menopause do as well.

One thing I have in common with another psychic guy my age is that it has been hard to focus on just one career. Boredom is a killer and I left many jobs because of it, or they left me when I lost interest in them. Now I work for myself as a handyman. I am ideally suited to this because the randomness of the jobs and not knowing what is going to come next is not only not stressful for me, it is a comfort. I suppose there are probably other psychic guys out there with similar experiences.

And another thing . . .

Clearly, there are some unique, identifiable traits showing up that pertain almost exclusively to psychic people. The distinctness is a clue that psychic ability is much more than just something people do. It involves specific differences in physiology for the people who possess the talent in abundance.

I’m of the opinion that this really should be looked into by health professionals. I did a poll recently and found that 60% of highly sensitive people felt that they had an unusually high tolerance to physical pain. I read somewhere that psychic people tend to avoid hallucinogens and of course, love their barbiturates. (Alcohol.) But, and this is purely my own subjective observation, psychic people seem to avoid addiction rather easily. I’m sure there are prescription drug related differences as well . It would be useful to identify these differences to provide us with health care more specific to our bodies and minds.:

    After doing a little research in an attempt to explain what is happening with me I happened upon this site. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Like so many others this site described me to a “T”.

    I always knew I was different I just didn’t know why. It really began in 1993 when I was visited by God in a dream. Yes, I spoke to God. He told me he was going to take my father. I asked when and he wouldn’t give me an exact date but he did give me a timeframe. I had the dream, which was the most beautiful and vivid dream I have ever had, for 5 days straight. The dream finally stopped when I shared the dream with my husband. My father died 2 months later within the exact timeframe I was given.

    This is just one example. I have had so many dreams that have come true or I have seen places I have never been. For so long I thought I was a freak and have had people call such!

    I read people extremely well. A little too well for my liking sometimes. I tend to be able to pick up on the smallest things and I fight within myself as whether I’m just cutely aware of body language or I’m really feeling something or both but I can say when I pick up on something I’m never wrong.

    Also, is it typical for animals to attach to sentive people? My husband calls me the animal whisperer.

    Thank you for so much insight. It’s been so helpful.

    i have it very strong ever since i can remember.. i married into a physic family.. i dont know who read up on this if anyone. but i do have RH- blood type and they say that blood type is alot more likely to have abilities others arent. my exact blood type is AB- its just strange how scientists cant figure out where my blood came from. they cant trace it back to monkeys i do believe it has a huge part. my friend we have the same exact blood type. and shes sensitive as well. it can be over whelming but there are rules to being physic. dont break emm :)

      September 18, 2014

      I
      I too have RH blood, but didn’t come from monkey’s, but I came from God…the creator of us all. And yes, being physic, we have to be careful, as this is not Gods world right now, but satan’s along with his demons.

    Dude, your blog has blown me away. I felt like you described me to a “T”. It is validating because after reading your characteristics article I went and did those online tests and according to them I am very un-psychic. None the less, I know what I know. I sense people and things. I can feel peoples energies and am influenced by people’s emotional states. I have told people I barely know their life story and I have gotten peoples thoughts. I didn’t know if I was nuts until I met a woman, who shared similar abilities and together we were like am amplifier of each other’s abilities. I fell in love with this person and this has created challenges as I already am married and have a distinctly non-sensitive, non-psychic spouse. None the less, I am seeking direction in how to manage these gifts. I’ve always had them and I work in healthcare. My abilities have made me extremely good at what I do in both general medicine and psychiatry. I am not sure where to go from here. Thank you from a left handed, mildly dyslexic, animal loving (and they love me too), deeply religious, intuitive, and hypersensive man.

      Jon, you may or may not have abilities, but there is one thing you had best be careful of,an admiration society between you and the woman your speaking about…knowing you are married. This could bring problems to your marriage.

      • Jon
        September 7, 2014

        Thank you. Naturally, you are right. Can you provide some direction on where to go with these talents, gifts, abilities? I feel like they’ve gotten stronger as I have aged and I need to learn how to manage then, especially the sensitivity and vulnerability to other people’s emotional states.

          September 7, 2014

          Jon,I too have had psychic abilities all my life, but have used them very little, I’ll tell you why. You say your religious, if so than you know satan has the ability to fool us, confuse us and lie to us. Having these abilities is a challenge, as you have to be mighty sure satan isn’t using you. Knowing this, I don’t use them in the way others do…I will only let these abilities come through if I’m sure that God is allowing his angels to let me know what ever it is he wants me to know. For instance, if a friend has some kind of physical problem and I hear, dream or have a vision about the individual and am told to tell them to see a doctor, then I will do so, because I know the right source has let me know. I have had many things happen, but I first ask myself if this is of God or satan. Satan will lie, but God won’t. When your close to God, you will know if the source is good or evil. The one main thing people need to realize and work hard on when they know they have these abilities, is their vainty. They have got to get the vainity out of the way because it will also confuse them as to the truth of the source they are receiving.

    Hi Everyone,
    I have posted on her in the past (2013 being the first time) I found this site when I was in a bad way, and it helped me to understand I was not going crazy. So thank you Craig!.
    Two years on I have researched and learnt a lot. In August 2012 something strange happened to me, it was my first Clairaudiant experience. I then started experiencing other abilities. I told I have a list and that it is still raw in me as I have not be trying to use them (they happen randomly) something I’m changing now.
    It was confirmed to me that I am a Medium.
    My guides have told me what I need to do. So I’m in a good place :)

    Good luck to you all.
    Mark,.

    Well that was very informative. I found that I fit into every characteristic listed. I have been struggling with the feelings that “I think I dreamt that.” But the events I think I’ve dreamt of are so vivid. Sometimes it freaks me out that I think I’m going crazy.
    I have had short stays in psychiatric wards due to depression anxiety and PTSD. I find it difficult to hold a job down due to boredom and the inability of tolerating people in my face. I like to work alone and think.
    I am an addictive person in any way I have to stay aware of my dependancy on anything at all.
    I don’t know where to go to from here I would like to pursue the gift I have to help and support others however I am concerned that I won’t have the ability to switch off at the end of the day and still be able to socialize on a healthy level.

    • jj
      August 26, 2014

      Okay Kaz, your not going crazy. I have had many things happen to me, including dreams…but not dreams so much as visions. The thing I see where you need help the most, is called balance. You need to learn how to balance the real from the un-real. There is a reality, like the world we live in and then there is a spiritual reality most cannot see…but those that have certain abilities. Now, the real world we live in is a world of touch, feel, see, taste, etc. The other world is a spiritual world of good and evil [ satan, angels, Christ and God ]. To seperate the two, you have to ask yourself, [ as God has asked us to do ], to look at the source of what is happening. In otherwords ask yourself, is this of God [ because God is love and doesn't want anyone to be hurt or do wrong ] or of satan [ he is out to hurt and harm in many different ways ] and his demons. This is what I do whenever something comes up. This is the right way to handle every situation you find yourself in. Just know there is a God and he loves you very much.

    Hello,

    the article was really nice. I for one was never comfortable w/ the term psychic, but it’s a “good” possible indicator for the skills I possess on occasion. My family is pretty much against anything that’s not related to God, as well are the people they tend to associate w/. My interest is a cause for alarm to them. They see it as- “messing w/ devilish things” and I simply see it as normal. Divination, The Tarot, and the reading on fringe/abnormal subjects is what I enjoy. I’m grown, but they’re still not exactly luke warm in understanding.

    Now, I have no problem embracing the term “psychic”; even though the stereotypes are horrendous…hell I’ve researched Indigo, star child, and etc…to try to find a certain group my strangeness fits in, but I’ve embraced my solitariness and the fact I don’t fit the mold people “want” me to be. I’m still getting to know myself, what I want, and a zillion other things. What I will not except though is the fact that I may be non freaking muggle. I love looooove HP, but to tell people psychics, sensitives, empaths or whatever are non-muggles is just asking for another Salem Witch trials. People are either awed, curious, or afraid of what they don’t understand. A majority of the time it’s usually the last. I’m all about inclusiveness and finding a common bond between people no matter what. I truly believe everyone has the capacity to alter their minds, behaviors, and to eventually wake up. It takes time of course, because this isn’t a race and everyone operates at their own pace. I’m still trying to wake up myself.

    Now I grew up liking animals, true enough…though something I’ll never forget happened when I was younger. As much as I LOVE cats…I was quite violent towards one. I was 6 or younger and I had this kitten named Nala. (~sighs~ Poor Mufasa…) Anyway I use to suffocate her at my leisure. I’m not sure why, but for some reason I just wanted to see something feel pain. My kitten being the most nearest and dearest thing to me took the brunt of it. I would just be outside, hide, and then find some creative way to induce asphyxiation. It was so relieving and morbidly interesting. I never killed her, but I did hurt her. Clearly I knew it was wrong. That didn’t enter into the equation at all. All I knew is that a strange part of me wanted power over something and was hurting. It was almost clinically calming in a way. At that age I think my “abilities” were very unblocked and free flowing. They really weren’t like that again until my teens, but more disjointed. Anyway, as a child I remember distinctly seeing this and I’m not sure if I caused it. If I did though than…I was a potentially deadly child. I remember sitting off to the side in the back of the driveway. Or maybe I was standing, but near the back side of the house was an old gray outdoor cabinet w/ shelves. On top were these huge mice, rats lol I don’t know. They stood there though on their hind legs, and as if in a trance they marched one by one to drop off the edge of the top. They literally committed suicide or kept doing it until they died…I found that to be a strange phenomena, but I wasn’t sure if it was natural or because of me. It things like this that let me know I’m different. Or at least more in touch w/ my “spiritual” side than most others. Thinking about it makes me sick and sad. I’ve never told anyone this before. Situations like that have made me weary of myself, and a kinder individual in general. I’ve experienced and been made aware of the cruelty of people at a young age, and I was cruel myself.
    Naturally I have a nice rapport w/ animals. Some better than others. We understand each other and it calms me.

    As for the other things you point out…when I was younger I was ambidextrous. All my siblings were, but after a certain age we chose a hand. I chose to be a lefty. I got into art pretty young and loved it. I still do. I want to have a career in something I love. As far as habits…not so much. I try to follow a pattern, but I find myself going off the rails and just do whatever I feel. I hate having people tell me what I should do. I need to do what I feel. I’m a night owl true. The creativity flows better and I enjoy my solitude. It helps me prepare for dealing w/ other people. And of course at night sleeping means making myself “vulnerable” to spirits…so I learned sleep it over rated.
    Anyway, excuse me for my long post, and later! ;p

      Brandie, it’s a miracle [literly ] that you haven’t lost your mind. Your between two worlds right now…Gods and satan’s. And your going to have to one day pick which world you want to be next to. You being physic may have come down from some one in your family. You cannot help being what you are, as it has been passed on, but you can control it. Apparently satan already knew this and also knew you were having a struggle with it. He has been working on you for quit a while why you have not wanted anyone to interfear in your thoughts connected to being physic. You should have to talk to someone when you were hurting the cat, as even then satan was influencing you to do wrong. He is stronger than you can ever imagine and also very cunning. I know, I’ve had to deal with his demons for many, many years and once long ago, almost felt like I was going to go out of my mind, but God has always [ without me knowing it ] had his hand on my shoulder.I think He has his hand on yours. Being physic carries a responsability and wisdom to boot. We’re not living in Gods world right now, but satan’s. Demons are stronger right now. We need to use wisdom, understanding and love with these abilities or they can back fire on us in a very negative way and not only hurt us individualy, but others as well. God loves you and is always there to help you stay in control. Right now, much is happening in our country and other countries as well and children need hope…you love animals, paint them for children to enjoy. Love is our greatest hope!

    I think I understand what you are feeling. what I left out of my comment, was I have met someone, someone I am not with, because situations in my life right now prevent that. I have not actually seen this person in about 4 years, but when we used to work together, everyone thought he was my husband (it was actually an embarrasing thing we both delt with at work daily…and people asking us why we werent married) , and we just “clicked” like I have never “clicked” with someone before. but I swear I feel him every single night. I “know” he is thinking about me, and I cant help but think about him…even though I have tried so badly not to. Maybe your situation is more positive….I am currently contemplating what the best thing for me to do is.

    I met my soulmate 2 years ago I believe. This triggered my third eye bad spiritual awakening. The spirit world will tell me my future from time to time and told me on meeting her, that was there to see her.
    The stuff that has gone on between us has been amazing, yet we are not together yet.
    There are websites about soulmates that list how I feel, what I am doing and the fact I have psychic abilities.
    So I know where it is going to go bad have hope.
    I will update if it happens :-)

  12. Lismil
    August 11, 2014

    What is your take on soul mates? When I was around 12 years old, I started having a reoccurring dream, where my family went on vacation to some mystical special foreign country far far away, but at the same time, felt like it was just an hour or so away. While on this vacation, I met a boy around the same age as me. We became best of friends instantly, and he was with me every moment of this vacation. He gave me a feeling I can’t even begin to explain, and when I was with him, everything in the world was just perfect……then it was time to leave. My family piled in the car, and I had a very difficult time leaving him. He hugged me and told me ” someday we will meet again”. I have always felt that I really would find this person from my dream in my lifetime. ……on to today, I truely feel I am sensitive, and because of it, I have made some very impulsive decisions based on gut feelings. I’m not sure if that is a normal intuitive thing for most, but I think it stems from my sensitivities. This impulsive thing has made me make moves across the county on the drop of a dime more then once, and for some reason, I get the ” feeling” that not only am I learning life lessons, but my intuition is ” leading” me to something….perhaps the person from my dreams? Is this crazy to even think this?

    • jj
      August 11, 2014

      Apparently there is someone out there for you, and you most likely will meet this individual. These dreams you had sound more like visions to me. Go with your gut, but be sure you use wisdom in the search of this individual…ask God to point you in the right direction and He will. Love is never crazy to search for.

    Everything you talked about rang true with me. I have had some abilities since a little child. About the animals and love of animals …I seem to attract animals often. I heard this is a common trait in sensitive. Have you heard this before? I have had wild rabbits and raccoon come up to me , multiple random cats and dogs at my porch not to mention the birds that insist on nesting at my front door and flying in the house from time to time.

  14. Adriana Shreffler Crouch
    August 6, 2014

    This explains a lot to me. I suspected that I was different. I grew up in a troubled family. My only escape was through my imagination. I would draw and write. The weight that crushed me almost caused me to commit suicide at an early age. Because of this my family threatened to send me to Juvenile detention. After this was when I would bury myself in my writing and in books to escape.
    I also grew up in a haunted home, which didn’t help. The dark spirit there only made my father worse. He was abusive in many ways. Many of which I won’t mention. When we finally moved from there things got a little better. After I left home at eighteen I haven’t been able to write or really draw. I lost my muse; which I am not that heartbroken over. I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t write anymore, until two years ago. I met a gifted psychic and she explained to me that I was empathic. Suddenly my whole childhood made sense.
    Now I have my own son and I see a few of these gifts in him already. My husband is also psychic, but in ways I am not. Are psychics often drawn to others? My great-grandmother was a healer in the Yaqui tribe. She was said to have psychic abilities. I never met her, however. She died when I was a baby. My sister had clairvoyant abilities, but she despises them and has buried them. I don’t blame her, I tried to as well.
    Thank-you for the post, I will definitely be following you for others!

    I need help to use this gift. Akways had it but unaware of it. Overnight. Actually at my most intense happy feeling, it manifested insistently into my conscious ness. Im ‘aware’ and seems as though well you should get it. Im one with all around. People nature and the universe. It shows in my art. I need help. Signs are every where. The eart speaks loudest to me. Can also feel every energy even those who linger after passing on. Need help.

      August 3, 2014

      sugar plum princess, Indians have felt this. I have felt this [ having Indian blood myself ] when I walk down my trail. i look at it as being one with God. Nature is beautiful and makes you feel a quite happy within. This is a good thing. Now, if you feel the energy of the dead and they are still lingering, be careful with that, as God said when people die, their spirit goes back to him who gave it. So, the spirit does not linger, but something else well can…fallen angels or you may feel real [ Gods ] angels. When you do your art, and this continues, do it with love and happy thoughts and wonderful things will come of it.

        Um, this is not true, there are such things as ghosts. I think every psychic should be aware of earthbound spirits. Its not all angels and demons, there are human souls that are trapped here. Apparently, some do not even recognize they are dead or can not accept that they died, these “people” are confused and are reaching out looking for some help. Some are stuck because of fear, they realize they are dead but are still ok on earth and fear the unknown, perhaps fearing that hell or judgment awaits them on the other side. Then others stay behind to take care of business or watch over their family members. Maybe they feel like they will lose contact with them once on the other side. Guilt can also prevent the transition. The living can also create complications for the deceased when they create an attachment and do not let their beloved go.

          Melissa, The dead are of course dead and in the bible [Ecclesiastes 12: 7-8 ] it says after one is dead the spirit in man goes back to God who gave it. This spirit is a part of man, personality, etc. But what you see, hear, etc are not human spirits, but demons [ unless God sent one of his angels to someone for a reason ]. In biblical times they also saw ghosts, but they knew they were not human beings in spirit, but demons. Believe me when I say, I know a lot about them as I have experienced them my whole life because some of my family was into witchcraft and it past on down through the family. I do have psychic abilities, but don’t use them, as demons will mess with you if you do. Whenever anything does happen, I always ask if this is of God or satan…because satan can tell the truth and will also lie. So, its always best to have God on your side with these abilities.
          Satan and his demons have powers beyond our imagination and they can do many things, including manifesting themselves into human form or spiritual form looking just like someone. Angels can do the same thing, but they only do what God ask them to do and when they do, you can feel the love coming from them, but with demons you cannot. No human spirits are trapped here, but demons are when God through them back down here…they are lonely, evil and most dangerous. They all have names and powers. Some are worse than others. They all hate us and want the human race to believe our families, friends, or neighbors that have passed are still here or as you put it, some stuck here. They are not. Now, God has set up situations at times for some where as they were able to say good-bye to their love ones…but done Gods way, not satans. Gods word [ the bible ] explaines a lot about this. You just have to research and you’ll find answers.

          Yeah, I’d have to agree w/ Melissa on this one.

          I know people are suppose to move on after death, but I don’t think it happens all the time. I do think there is a way spirits become stuck and aren’t able to move on. Ghosts are real. People can leave impressions behind, because of strong emotions. These are similar to recordings in a environment. Then there’s the actual soul being left or earthbound. Certain places can trap spirits. Maybe they weren’t ready to move, maybe they stayed behind to help family, seek vengeance, and etc…There are too many stories about this kind of thing. I remember seeing what I thought were ghosts at the time. lol Their kinda eerie, and really unnoticeable unless they want the attention. Some of them can seem really life like until the disappear behind a tree or something.

          Besides I do have a personal belief in spirits that exist that were never human to begin w/ (i.e Faeries), and spirits that are of human origin. There’s a whole lot more in this world and beyond than we can even begin to imagine really. The soul in my opinion is a complex thing that can exist in multiple realities, and dimensions. Maybe even people who don’t feel whole are walking around w/ only half of themselves; until the time comes to be reunited w/ their other half. lol

          It’s an interesting theory.

    Is there anyone that could contact me to speak further about the things I’m feeling? I know I’m not the only one, but I want to describe the events and learn what else I may be able to do to hone in on my abilities

    I’m writing because I’ve had abut irises since i was a Little girl. I saw my first actual apparition at the age of six and it was my grandfather but it was not my grandfather that was nice and my mother and grandmother both had psychic abilities. The joke used to be in school what does your mother have a crystal ball in her closet how did she know she know what we did? I have more of an empath am I can be around someone actually feel what they’re feeling ,it’s very bizarre and you’re right when I’m in a group of people I get confused because I can’t figure out where it’s coming from but normally I’m drawn to that person and then I figure out who it is. I know when someone’s lying to me it’s almost like I can tell the Caroline to me I don’t know if that’s a sick sense not to mention I literally wake up every night between three and 3:25 AM and have since I was a little girl. But it’s bizarre I don’t hear other people’s voices in my head it’s my voice but someone else speaking it to me when I get a connection with someone. I guess I’m writing you because there’s lots I have to ask that maybe we can communicate because for the first time I ended up getting jumped the other night I was at a bar and my boyfriend said it wasn’t me it’s like I was channeling someone else I was speaking of people he never heard of and I was speaking of a time that was not of this time. I have health issues that are major am I find that my ability is not as strong, I think one of the issues is the medication that they have me on but the apparitions are still there though I can’t see them all the time they get my attention other ways by throwing things ,changing the channels on my TV ,or for instance actually I have a video whereupon I was listening to light classical music to try to relax to go to sleep and I’ll wake up to it classical music station still being on but the doors playing or ELO or heart and when I say knock it off then it stops and goes back to playing the classical music like seeing apparitions ALL the time then you being able to to being able to see apparitions the only thing that I’ve seen now as I have seen is a shadow person but one in particular that’s outside of my house because I protect the house but also being out in and out of the hospital I have seen apparitions there. The only kicker is I don’t know when I’m wrong and I don’t know if I’m right it’s like I don’t feel confident enough but literally I will even look at a friend told him I could tell them about themselves things I would never know private things and tell them to answer yes or no and I literally always hit it right on the head … I also have problems with sleepwalking where I will wake up outside sleeping in the garden dirt..that’s happened a few times or I have vivid dreams and I’ve had vivid dreams ever since I can remember dreams that no six-year-old ,seven-year-old a-year-old ,or even a 12-year-old should have from a movie but it’s like a movie playing out but I wake up and the movie or I’m sorry the dream is still going on that’s happened to me ever since I was a little girl and these are some horrible things to experience because as a child you have no idea what’s going on and not to mention I’ve always had a vivid imagination , I was a straight a student and not a loaner well yeah a loner a little or wanted to be left alone and made straight A’s, artistic I do have a high tolerance for pain, funny you mention that , but I do you have hypersexuality, and those dreams that I had that when I would wake up and think there was still going on it wasn’t because I had seen some movie that night before bed.. me just having a nightmare these are dreams/ nightmares mostly that I know I’d never seen a movie about them.. My poor dad.. He had gotten woken up and with anything that would freak out any father but my mom would call them fever dreams, though I wasn’t running a fever..then she explained it to me.. The worst is being around someone I know is evil eye can see the evil I can feel the evil I can actually even picture things that they done that’s why I actually wanted to work for the FBI BA Unit because I had a photographic memory before I became sick and lost my ability to speak Russian fluently ,German fluently , that’s for my mothers from Germany and I lost my photographic memory , and my Billies the operations all the time after I had my third seizure. Oh not to say they don’t try to get my attention because they do and I was told by a spiritual’s friend of mine that I’m probably and surrounded by them I can’t see them because that I’ve only seen a few but that’s because they were powerful especially the shadow person I wasn’t the only one that saw that one but and if it’s a strong apparition then yes I see them and they talk to me but it’s my voice in my head and then I speak back to them and they answer me but it’s my voice..it’s very bizarre.. One of my spiritual friend a told me that I probably help them pass in their sleep and don’t even realize it and I hope that’s the case but the waking up exactly still like I as a kid, to wake up every night , no matter what I can wake up from a wake up from 3 to 325 every single morning ,every single morning and I go back to bed but it takes a while but it happens and I don’t know why it’s been that way since I was a little girl of course it my spiritualist friend tell me because it’s called the witching hour. But the impasse situation is the absolute worst and I hate it because someone could look at me right in the face as they’re telling me a story and I merely know that they’re lying and these are people that are close to me so that’s really hard for me to say anything and I don’t but it makes me not trust them and that bothers me so I don’t how to handle that..maybe you can give me some suggestions or a good book to read to help me deal with but as far as having a spirit guide , I know I must have one … I mean I know I have a spirit guide , I know because I have the intuitions, know I have intuitions that occur and I don’t know if that’s my spirit guide or not where I’ll literally know like not to go with that person ,something bad is going to happen .this and that ,almost like guidance but it’s my voice telling that to me in my head and I have no mental illness, so I know that it’s not that so maybe you can help me out?

      daisy, You have a lot going on here. What I’m going to tell you, I have tried to explain to others on here, but I know its hard for them to grasp and I know their own vainty gets in the way, as my does sometimes too, but I try to fight that part. We do have abilities, some have many, others maybe one or two. I can relate to many myself, but having paranormal abilities can be hard to get away from, so…let me tell you first, we don’t live in Gods world right now, but satan and the demons world. I know this may be hard for you to believe, but it is in the bible if you want to look it up. Satan and the other demons [ fallen angels ] are all around us, so are Gods angels. Satan hates us more than anyone can know and he will use us. You come from a family of psychics, so do I. Abilities have been passed on to us and demons know it. While all of our abilities won’t just go away, we can control them. God will help us with that. There is one main thing to always remember…satan will lie and also tell the truth. When ever you have something happen, ask yourself, is this of God or satan? God is love and will only show you something if He feels its most important for you to know, where as satan will not…but will only try to confuse you. If you want to talk further, I don’t mind at all, but if you feel what I have said so far is nuts and don’t want to talk, that’s alright too. Take care.

    that is so true i am psychic it runs in my family and the peaple that say that they can tell you future NOT TRUE 98%of the time! i can simply see,talk,contact ghost’s. i am only 13 but being psychic is not a pice of cake. when you are trying to do something you feel like you are being wached and most of the time you are. alot of peaple live with a ghost near by. and alot of peaple think we can tell you what the future holds but that is alot of crap. some peaple can like my grandma. but just the fact alot of jerks say they can but that is just takeing peaples gift that god blessed there family with. you just cant trust peaple as much as you could. and i am not the best at spelling soooo. :)

    I’ve often felt like I am more sensitive than others and after reading this, I share a lot of the traits you speak of. One instance was when I was 8, I told my step-mother that she would be having twins when she found out she was pregnant (she did).
    I went to a psychic and she told me that my abilities would appear more once I got pregnant.
    I feel like everything has weakened but I would love to find out how to open myself up more. (My husband and I are talking about having children soon so I have not experienced anything more yet).
    I would also like to know why pregnancy would open up a person’s abilities more.

      Martinjn, there are many things we don’t understand right now, but one day will. When I was pg with my daughter, I had to go to the hospital thinking she was coming and while there I felt something go into her from me. From this day, I don’t know what it was, but haven’t worried about it, as I know one day God will explain to me what happened. My daughter has been fine and no problems. I am psycic and feel she may be too, but we don’t embrace these abilities.

    I also want to add that I’ve been struggling with a drug addiction for a little over a year now and I cannot shake it. This is so very unlike me and I’m not in a good place mentally. It seems odd to me though that my “traits” seem to have strengthened during this. I’m wondering why this could be.

    My whole life I’ve experienced almost everything here, especially because of my anxiety disorder, extreme depression, dyslexia, and adhd. I always had a feeling like they all stemmed from something deeper. I had a near death experience when I was 5 years old, when my mother and I got into a car accident. I saw god and I relive the memory like it happened yesterday. Everything here explains what I’ve felt. I am an extremely creative person; I’m self employed as a newborn photographer (I’ve been told that I am “the baby whisperer” because of the way I am with newborns and babies, and get them to calm and settle and sleep. My website is listed with this post I believe.) I am a very well known photographer in my area and have win numerous awards. I’m completely self taught and it’s all come naturally. I am also a successful fiber artist in knitting and crochet, and I own a side business doing that as well as other crafts. I’ve always known something about me was just “different” and I couldn’t out a finger on it. Now I know. Thank for for your article and help. I feel so peaceful now.

      June 23, 2014

      joanne, anger and hate come from a bad source. Love comes from a good source. In otherwords, satan hates, but God loves. Being psysic or sensitive, we have to be extra careful, as satan hates us and will use us if we let him. There was a member of our family that was very much into the paranormal [ including some witchcraft ] and this individual [ while she was drunk ] screamed at another individual, that she hoped he would die and that night, he died, by way of a motorcycle accident. I know she was more than sorry for what took place and learned much from it. I don’t think she realized the power of satan and her own power at that time. One day I will tell her. The one that died was my son, but I know he’s well taken care of by God. And I know I will see him again. The point is, we that have such abilities have to nuture them by being very careful and sticking as close to God as possible. I hope this helps you.

    Finally I am not alone on this. For my entire life I have walked a different side of the road from everyone else. When I was four I lost my father, and I could see some pretty messed up things. My sight has weakened a lot since then, but I can feel emotions so strongly that if i’m in the room with a stranger I can feel their feelings without them even making any contact with me. Same thing with Sensing another life. I have so many questions but I don’t know where to start.

      Sort of sounds like you are an empath, which can be tough if you don’t know how to ‘shut it off’ or at least tune out some of those feelings and understand them better (ie recognize they are not coming from you so don’t let it get to you)

      Shayla, my heart goes out to you or any young person that has a family that doesn’t understand a gifted child. I was very lucky as most of my family was the same as I so I had very good support all my blessed life. First off it’s very important that you know that you can take control. You must be brave and confident you need not fear ever because as a living human in your own dimension you are greater in power than those entities that are out of their own dimensions. They don’t have the right to bother you when you don’t want them to so walk tall and feel your strength it will help to keep them out of your personal space so you can get some sleep. If they are particularly stubborn and you want them to leave you alone then wipe them away from your life by simply refusing to acknowledge them and never speak of them if you do this they will eventually leave you alone as anyone would. Do know that you are especially strong in your own territory/dimension so stay in it for the time being. Once you gain control things will become better in all aspects of your life and then you can choose what and who to let in and what and who to keep out. Go slow be strong, know that you are blessed. Learn to use your personal discernment and always remember follow no one that wants to be followed…..

      Alright, so I’ve never posted anything about the talents “I think I have” or everyone tells me I have. I’m not even sure if this is the right sight to post this but my urge was so great I’m doing it. I think I am really trying to figure out who I am. I feel like there is something so amazingly great that I can do and I’m not doing it. I play guitar, piano, harmonica, dance, draw abstract, paint, write poetry, and songs and some more stuff. I can do any of those things decent ally at any time but when I feel good and have an urge of energy or feeling of motivation I can do them to where it mind blows myself and gives me a goosebumps tingling feeling all over my body. I’ve always been a super worrier I don’t think there is ever a time that I am not worried. I was a really good kid but I made bad grades and my teachers in kindergarten asked to hold me back a year because they said I was to immature, my dad would not do it. I don’t think that I am unintelligent actually every tells me I’m very smart all the time. ( I hate to sound like I’m bragging so much sorry. ) I have bad anxiety and panic attacks ever since I was maybe 7. I go through feelings of feeling great and so happy then a sense of something bad is going to happen comes then goes. I don’t think anyone knows me even if they could bet on it, honestly I don’t think I know myself. Over the years I would say about the age of 17 ( I’m 25 now ) I would look at a person and ask then if I could tell them there whole life story. I have been right every time I still do it because it freaks people out and is exciting still ha. I met my next door neighbor a few months ago, a girl named Rosia. We hung out only a few different time I hung out with her 4 days ago and we stayed up all night talking. We were so in depth I told her about these weird feelings I have and told her I feel like when someone doesn’t say anything I picture the image of what there thinking in my head but first I feel there emotion usually of sadness. She told me I was right again so we tried something. I said pick a number one through 10. I looked at her eyes and said 7. She was like your kidding I was right I said think of one from 1 to 20 then I said 17 I was right again then 1 – 50. I said 38 I promise I am dead serious I was right again. I think I can only do this sometimes and not to everyone though. There is definitely something incredibly different about me I just wish that someone could help me figure out what it is. I’m diagnosed with ADHD anxiety and insomnia :/ I know it’s a lot my parents didn’t Beleive in med but once I was treated for not being able to focus I can at least hold a steady good paying job now. I’m not sure if anyone else does this but I can control my dreams. I’ve had a few dreams in the past year that I could start running and then fly. I remember being in the dream and realizing I was dreaming and continued to fly around my parents house it was amazing. But sometimes I get trapped in my dreams and I have a lot of bad ones to. I have something called sleep paralysis it happens like 5 times a month. I’m having a nightmare so I try to wake myself up I come out of the dream but my eyes body legs arms nothing can move or I can’t speak, I lay there for 2 minutes and then I can. If being psychic is a real thing I really do think I have another senth. A lot of people think I’m weird but they still like me I always smile and enjoy entertaining people but I think this other senth is what is interfering with my way of thinking my focusing my happiness and my motivation. This was entirely to long I know. If anyone seems like your like me or can help tell me anything at all that would be amazing. Just email me. Wesley1401@icloud.com

    Craig,

    I am going to be very straight forward to you right now.

    It seems that your “greater self” is hurting me. I am not certain though. It could be something similar trying to keep us apart. I am hesitant to interpret this further as I sense corruption of the concept as I try to put it into words.

    I am compelled to drop your blog but since I am a real “hard ass” I elected to endure the duress instead.

    I am concerned because last summer the same phenomena (presumably your greater self) prompted me to get a Masters degree in Philosophy from the University of Colorado Boulder and to put my photo up on this blog. I still consider that impression genuine. I resisted the picture and I have plans to move to Colorado.

    I want your input.

    Drop the blog? Or not?

      Hi José,
      My own experience over time has been that the best approach is to ignore messages and impressions unless they are obviously tied to something in my life.

      In this case, we have no obvious connection outside of this blog, so it’s best to ignore any information you might be getting that concerns me. Stuff like that is almost always a red herring.

      One of the things that psychic ability is really good at is making connections. Sometimes though, there can be too many connections to the point where they’re no longer grounded in reality.

      Your best bet is to not act on impressions right away and see if they change or go away. And ignore stuff that isn’t taking you in a direction you want to go. Psychic ability is your assistant, not your master. You’re in charge.

      • José Antonio Ramos

    I’m Ela from Italy. My husband left me for no reason on 24th of May 2011. He moved in with another woman, I felt like killing myself. I’ve tried different spell casters and went to different churches to pray but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about a man called Da abacha. he said him gave him some lucky numbers that he played in a lottery and he won 5 fives consecutively. I didn’t believe it because I’ve worked with so many of them and it didn’t work. He begged me further so I decided to try this great man called Dr abacha. I contacted him and I gave him the necessary information. after the days which he gave me, the next day which was on the 29th of July, I received a call and it was my darling husband. He apologized and came back to me crying for a second change and he even gave me money to start up a business as a means of compensating me on that very day before leaving.

      If one experiences it, it is normal and natural. Words like “supernatural” and “paranormal” only serve to segregate, set apart, and ostracize the more sensitive people among us.

      Consider a more inclusive tact in order to change the Common Good’s flawed paradigm.

    I’m not sure if I have psychic abilities, but the characteristics describe me to a “T”! I have very vivid dreams, with or without hypnogogic hallucinations, which can be extremely frightening. It feels like a near death experience and there is often a pull between good and evil. I will also have visions in my dreams and my dreams reveal many truths to me. One was a dream of a man I was dating and he wore a terrifying iron mask. I tried to peak underneath and it was horrifying, grotesque and evil underneath. In real life the man I dated turned out to be a sociopath, liar and cheater. He is now engaged to someone else and I had a vision/dream of her and her face was swollen, bruised, puffy, and dead looking. I don’t know what this means, but I felt a sadness about it. I have also been noticing that every time I look at a clock it has three of the same digits ie. 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55. any thoughts on my experiences would truly be welcome and helpful to me. Thanks!

      Laura, you sound psychic. I have commented on this site a few times and I know its hard for people to believe what I’m saying because most don’t want to believe we’re in a war between good and evil, but we are. I will tell you this…you are struggling between good and evil. God has his hand on you, trying to protect you, while satan [ or a demon ] is trying to grab hold of you. Apparently you are fighting back without realizing it.

      Angels will warn you about things… sometimes in a dream. I think that’s what happened with that man you saw in the mask. The girl you saw, swollen and bruised could have been you, if you had not heeded the warning.
      I have heard about some people looking at a clock the way you were describing, but its best to not get wrapped up in what you see on a clock. God has certain numbers for certain reasons in the bible and they are neither coming from a clock, nor are these numbers connected to God in anyway. When you see things like this, as I have told others…ask yourself, ‘is this of God or of satan?’
      God is logical and filled with love, but satan [ or his demons ] is opposite from God. I hope this helps.

        Thank you, Truer, for your quick response and opinion. a few weeks ago I had a dream with my mother (who is passed and frequently enters my dreams) . I was introducing my mother to a friend I couldn’t think of friends name. My friend said her name was Lisa, which isn’t her real name and I don’t even know any Lisa’s close to me. In the dream she said she had some oils to share and talked about decorating. The next day, in real life, I told my friend about the dream and she said she was thinking about studying essential oils. Also, that same day, I went into a shop I’ve never been to before ( I am an artist and create many types of paintings and textile works with a product I have been trying to promote for extra money) The woman who owns the shop said she would be interested in selling my product in her store. I asked her for her business card and guess what her name is? Lisa! I was blown away. So I think I need to sell my product in her store. My mother was a deeply religious and beautiful person and like I said, visits me in my dreams a lot.

        I recently had a hypnogogic dream and Jesus was in it taking me up to an opening, as if I was in a dark well, looking up. I noticed many shadowy figures gazing down, I couldn’t make out features, just shadows, but I felt like I knew them somehow.

        Is there a link between lucid dreaming and psychic ability?

        My daughter is mentally/cognitively disabled but she knew at once that the man I was very involved with was very bad (he hurt me beyond anything I can describe and I am still dealing with the emotional wounds) He is engaged to this other woman now who is very wealthy/successful. There was a time that I was with him in the home he was living and we were laughing/talking and this huge “whoosh” of energy came toward us, like it was upset. He would often tell me his place was haunted and I did hear weird sounds (mumbling) during the nights when I stayed with him. His phone would also say things (Syrie sp?) like it was jealous of me. I sometimes would say, “turn on Syrie and ask her a question. She sounded mad that he was with me! This is a phone app for crying out loud. How does that happen? I told him to call my phone when I was with him because I was checking my ringtone and when the phone rang, it said over and over, “I am the devil, I am the devil,” scared the crap out of me. I do believe this man is evil and I am still haunted by him. Sorry this is long and thanks for reading it if you are. I just want this man’s energy out of my life for good as it is soo painful and hard to break free from.

          Laura, The dream you had about your mother was a very positive dream and I have no doubts that you were sent a message with the help of an angel to talk to your friend and head toward that shop. And good luck by the way.

          Now, the second dream does not sound positive. It truly sounds as if satan is trying to throw you a curve. Dark shadows are called shadow people…dangerous. With what you have said about that guy, your gut was telling you something was wrong and that is why you felt you knew them [ the shadowy beings ].

          That guy your talking about is himself in real danger, but he is not one for you to hang with, because demons are around him and it sounds to me like very powerful ones. Stay away from him as your daughter, along with yourself will be put in harms way.
          Laura, satan and the demons can do some very powerful things. They can immitate others…in otherwords, sound like a human child or a man or a woman. There are many things they can do, so its best for you and your daughter to never communicate with that guy again.

          God apparently is watching over the both of you and that is good. Ask God to remove the negative energy out of your home and away from the two of you. If you need to, rebuke it by saying very strongly…I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ. They are suppose to flee, but some are stronger than others. If they do not flee, then the next step is to do as God has said…fast and pray, then rebuke again, strongly. Demons know if your a Christian or not…stay close to God and believe me, He will stay close to you. Again, I hope this helps.

            Thank you, Truer. I appreciate your support and words of encouragement! Thank you for your replies. I haven’t seen that man for two years. I caught him with another woman ( the one he is engaged to ) but the negative energy is unbearable at times. I also feel energy at work. The room can feel very oppressive to me. I can sense peoples auras even tho I don’t necessarily see colors, just a dark force if I know I need to stay away. I’m getting better after this happened with this man. I am paying attention to my feelings (my gut) and my posture when I’m with someone who has negative vibes. Then I just try and stay away from them. I just wondered if people with psychic abilities have vivid dreams like I described and does anyone else experience hypnogogic hallucinations?

              May 18, 2014

              Laura, I have never experienced hypnogogic hallucinations, but since every one is different in their own unique way, some may have. I have had visions where they feel so real, I can feel the wind on my skin and my hair blowing. It says in the bible that in the end times [ of which we are in now ] that the old will dream dreams and young have visions. The secret to this, is to know if they are truth or lies. That’s why its good to know God and be close to him. And I don’t mean in a fanatical way, but because we love him and obey him. God is truth and love, satan is deceptive and filled with hate.

              Your mother was close to God and she loved him. I have no doubt she too had experienced things she could not explain, but was kept safe and God too, had his hand on her shoulder.

      Hi, Laura am a 12 year old girl and I think you do have psychic abilities because this is the same thing it happens to me, its like i dream about a house and than I go to trips and I find the houses of my dreams and i didnt even knew that, that places even exist i tought my mind had created them. Sometimes my parents tell a phrase and than i say hey i knew you where gonna say that but i remember all of that was at my dreams. And now am starting to take pictures where I see places like my dreams. I do hear phrases and codes or sometime peoples hearts going fast like if i had something. And everytime I hear a noise I hear it loud and i get scared , now i have more goossepumps. I asked my dad if someone in his family had a psychic ability he said yes, my grandfather coulda move things with his mind ( psychokinesis) so that means I inherited some of his abilities, i really dont get scared because i know am still a normal girl but little bit different. Last week my aunt diedand before she died I had a feeling of something happend, than they called my mom telling her that her aunt died at 8.00 p.m just when I felt that feeling.Now am making a experiment of myself so write all things in a notebook writing what I feel whats happens and how do i feel until now its working to me, I do think I have psychic abilities.

    I came to this website by accident but it is very interesting. The article on HSP describes me. I’m not sure that i am psychic even though some in my family are. I have been having a reoccuring dream about me fighting evil. I recently had a dream about Jesus. He was on the cross and he opened his eyes and kept looking at something that was next to me. He followed whatever it was with his eyes never breaking his glance. Jesus never looked at me. I was told by a couple of people that there is a demon after me and i need to look to the lord. I just had to say all of this for some reason. Thank you for reading.

      Anonymous, you say you come from a family of psychic’s? My mother was a psysic, but got into deeper stuff, dangerous stuff. If any member of your family is into any deeper stuff, such as black magic, etc….be careful. Your dream may well be a warning. It’s very possible a demon may be trying to get to you because of your family. I had no interest in any of this stuff, but my mother did try to get me interested. Many times when one isn’t interested or not involved with such things and the family is, demons will work to get your mind interested one way or another. Your lucky, you’ve been warned to be careful, I wasn’t. Things have always happened to me, but I never paid attention to them, until my mother died, then I had to, because they were after me. I have had to fight them most of my life, but I found a helper…God and his son, Jesus Christ. Without them, I would have been in big trouble. Yes, things still happen, along with psychic things, but, God gives me the strength to fight back. Stay close to God the best you can and don’t allow this thing to influence you.

        Thank you Truer for your words. My mom was one of the people who told me about the demon after me. She said she saw the demon but she was not afraid of it. She said the demon was there to let her know of his presence. My mom is a devout catholic. y grandma suposedly was psychic. My cousin is psychic and she was supposedly possessed by a demon. I have thought of things sometimes and then they happened. I knew a man and one day i said to myself over and over again that he was going to die. Weeks passed and i got word that he was hit by a car and died. I am trying to stay positive and be closer to god. It hasn’t been easy.

          Anonymous, you’re right, I know its been hard as I’ve had to fight them for many, many years now…but God has always given me the strength to hold on. Like you, I too can tell if someone is going to die or not, and I pray about it immedially that God allows them to live. There are so many things I could tell you, but the main thing is to stay close to God and when something comes up, always ask yourself…is this of God or satan. You know God is love and doesn’twant harm to come to you, but satan will lie and tell the truth. The best bet is to ask God to some how let you [ He will not talk to you directly, but sometimes will by way of his angels ] know if what you know is truth or lies.

    Can there be psychics that can read thoughts of other people? I’m experiencing voices and it is driving me crazy. They said I committed a crime that I didn’t attempt. I’m going crazy right now. I’ve lost my sanity, please help. I hate it, my head hurts.

    • craigweiler

      Hearing voices that are giving you bad information is not good. I’m afraid that I can’t do much for you over the Internet though and anyways I’m a writer and journalist, not a therapist.

      A good place to start is to find someone you can trust and start talking to them about what you’re experiencing.

    • José Antonio Ramos
      May 8, 2014

      Thina,

      It is my impression that the voices you are experiencing are not the thoughts of other people. It is also my impression that the the content of the rhetoric you are experiencing is not important no matter how specific it can be, so do not communicate back.

      If you feel as though you are being goded or told to do something by these voices, do not do it. Remember that your actions are very finite (you cannot easily take them back).

      Anything subjective (not physical) try to ignore. Anything physical but “supernatural”, make a note of it. You may be experiencing a synergy between the two so do not instantly interpret your environment any which way.

      Keep open minded. Do not freak out. You may be very overwhelmed by psychic impressions … Your mind cannot make sense of it so it comes across as voices. Remember that talking is one of the first things you ever learned so I am not surprised that your mind resorted to it for context. I presume in a language you learned.

      I am not a therapist but be careful if you approach one. They may peg you for having a serious condition without understanding unconventional explanations. If there are any people in your life that treat you suspiciously well … Go to them first for help.

      If the issue persists try to practice the basic tenet of Dao. See everything for what it is rather than what we call it. Words are meaningless, especially those if your voices.

      Good luck,
      José

      I had to come back to say one more thing. Hopefully it means something to you.

      If the aforementioned voices also respond as you … like in a subjective two way conversation … and you know conceptually without doubt, that it is not you. Then it is not! Do not ever let it be you!

      Whatever it is, it sounds bad. I truly feel for you.

      My advice is for you to stay cogent. The knowledge you need to cope is out there. I think living with it is very possible :)

      Best,

      Thina, You’re not going nuts. I have had it happen to me twice, but I handle it the way I usually handle things I’m not sure of…I say to myself, is this of God or satan. God said, he has given us a sound mind, but satan would love to destroy our minds because he hates us. There is one thing I believe that Jos’e said that you should be careful of doing and that’s to talk to a shrink, as they deal more with the physical aspects of human beings and have a hard time believing there is a spiritual world out there that is good and evil. Just know one thing, God loves you very much and so long as you stay close to him, he will be your saftey net…always. Try not to dwell on the things you hear and instead always remember that you have an angel that is with you all the time and Christ is holding your hand and God is saying…I love you my child and will always be with you. You have surrounding help and love beyond words. Take the time to just talk to God, like you would a friend. It does help.

    Just came across this as I am wondering if my child has inherited my “sensitivities” as she is a very restless sleeper. And me too! Also children are more sensitive. I saw so much more when I was younger than I do now, although I feel I am more psychic. Anyways what really caught me here is the hooded one. I always had this woman in a dark blue hooded robe or dressing gown standing at my door. I woke up turned around and she was there, this happened all the time for years. Also my sister had the same thing and I saw here at my mothers door once too! I thought maybe she was my grandmother that I never knew. I never saw a face. Once she held the hand of a smaller brighter figure, I think was my cousin who passed very young. It is interesting that other people have had this hooded figure too.

    No worries at all. No need to panick or be afraid. Just let it be “the facts” of your life. The ones calling your name could be either spirits passing by or spirits of your dead relatives and so on. Sometimes you can figure out who they are. Don’t try to analyse who is the voice , the moment you relax it be easier to understand who it is. Once you submit to your nature all blends in magically, I’m working on it as well every day. I guess some mortal side isn’t really willing to let the mind accept the different structure of extraterrestrial notion. P.s- for an example, before going to sleep I always thank the spirits for being my friends yet state that we are from different dimensions and we are happy to communicate on such terms without interfering one’s space privacy. You ll be just all right . Hope this helps :)

    I’m hoping someone could give me some insight on some things I’ve expierinced since I was in my late teens. I have many times dreamt this reoccurring dream. But it’s more of a sleep paralysis out of body type of dream. I’m dreaming that I her a knock on the door and then I see a hooded figure walk towards me. Or that the hooded figure is outside the door and wants to come in but I do not open the door. The first time I dreamt with this figure it sat on my bed next to me and turned towards me to pull me off the bed by my feet. I always feel the same as I can’t move or scream but I always some how manage to wake myself up. I have no clue what this dream means. It’s happend randomly for the past 15 yrs or so. I also hear knocking next to my head usually by the wall or door right before I wake up. And often times when I’m drifting off to sleep i hear someone whisper my name. I even caught it a few times on EVP. I showed my husband to prove I wasn’t making it up. I know I’ve always been sensitive, I have pre cognitive dreams and feelings and have had a lot if other random psychic occurrences happen to me. I just don’t know what the hooded figure knockin and name calling mean! Anyone have any insight?! Thanks in advance.

        I have seen the hooded one once when I was having trouble sleeping he appeared at my bed side smiling I sat up and asked him “why are you here ” he replied “to put you to sleep” I said “if you are here to put me to sleep then why am I awake?” He was jovial and seemed humored and in an instant I fell into a deep sleep that I tried to fight because I had wanted to wake my husband to see him. The next morning with only a few hours sleep I never felt so good. I refer to him as the Joyful One. His face and eyes where smiling and smooth and hairless he looked somewhat Tibetan. His robe and hood looked as if it was seamless and rounded at the top.

    I slept in my parent room till I was about 11 years old sometimes even in high school because I was so afraid to turn the lights off….the things I would see in the dark were so frightening that I would Attempt to avoid sleep altogether..eventually I prayed my night visitors away….a few months ago I discovered that I could see auras… While attempting to train and grow my ability I was continuously visited my daemons that spoke to me in my head taunted me and forced me to go talk to my pastor… I stopped training my eye and they went away…I’ve come to realize that I’ve allways had a bit of sleep paralysis (inability to move feel like something is sitting on my chest ect) but the other night while sleeping on my back I physically saw a black shadow standing over me just staring… Didn’t seem harmful , I didn’t feel threatened, of course I was paralysed but I didn’t seem to mine it staring at me…upon awakening I realized that it was possibly more than I dream… The next night I awake in what I believe to be a seperate dominsion… Filled with a world a lot like the one in insidious the movie…I’ve been having sleep paralysis almost every other night since the event… Each time a different experience… Also my eyes see very small balls of light I once believe to be floaters but have now come to realize floaters are not light!

      Kalena, Leaving ones body can take us to some strange places and sometimes your friends and relatives will report seeing you as a ghost. A person can get a bit stuck trying to get in or out think of it like a lock and key if you get excited the key won’t turn the lock. The next time it happens stay very calm it’s an interesting place to be because in that moment you will be able to see both worlds. It’s not good to embrace or even talk about dark entities it’s not in our best interest because it creates a connection and or fear and can put one in a vicious cycle making one weak and susceptible to the very thing they fear. Wipe them away from your personal existence by refusing to acknowledge them as we all have that power. As far as lights go anyone who sees bright lights should put their hand in front of their face if the light still persist it’s good cause to get checked out by a physician if not then they are most likely just other life forms.

I was just that weird kid people would say that talked with people swear was there or see monsters at the naughbers house. ( who also seemed to drain light and he turned out to be a criminal). I also got horrible headaches and once even watched myself sleep. ( that got me a doctors appointment when I told my dad lol). Now my sonn is saying he is seeing the same things and he gets the headaches I did and I want to know if I should encourage him or protect himthe same crap I went through. Just not quite sure what is best for him and any advice besides taking him to a shrink, put him on pills and just chalk it up to imagination.

      micky, what has happened to you has passed onto your son. It’s not your fault. it happens in families. Like my mom and grandmothers psychic abilities passed onto me. Because of this I have had some really horrible experiences and mighty scary ones too. But, on the flip side, I’ve had some wonderful experiences. This has been going on with me most all my life…many, many, many years. I got very close to God through much biblical studing and research and the closer I got to God and the more I found out, the more I have been able to control my happenings.To me, micky, God is the only answer for your son and you. He loves us very much and knows these things and more are happening to people, including children. For now,the best thing to do is protect him by way of prayer and let him know how much God loves him and his angel is always with him. God is love and love does no harm…

    Oh man, where do I begin??? :D I remember my birth, still to this day, and the growing patterns of my mind. As a five year old little child, I knew that the systems of society are messed up and dreaded the thought of having to work in them one day. I astral projected and had sleep paralysis a lot when I was around 8 years old. I was a bully magnet and gotten into a lot of fights, starting in the 3rd grade. I was raised as a Navy brat and knew martial arts from a young age. I started to “hunt” down the bad kids in school as a sort of “vigilante” and dished out justice lol! The other kids that were asleep feared me, while the awaken ones praised me as a hero. I never craved the attention at all and thought that my actions brought balance. All this did was spread around the fear, increased my short temper, and gave me a weird form of telekinesis. I would accidentally bump into a person, about twice to three times a week, and they would slide about 5 to 8 feet on the floor! ” Oops, sorry, I’m sorry.” were the common words from my mouth at the time. I studied about Taoism, Buddism, Wicca, and Nature herself and gotten in touch with my spirit and learned how to tune into the whispers of God. This change happened around when I was 18. Puberty around age 13 made my temper and manifestations of randomized energy much much worse. Other psychic people gravitated towards me and we learned a lot from each other. One friend, Jason, told me that my aura was green and that I was a healer. Another one, Alison, told me about my temper, she also had a temper, and taught me how to convert my anger into energy to be used for action. A group of us were eating together one night after work and all of a sudden a white bubble of energy enveloped us and time froze still for about 6 seconds, then went back up into the ceiling. I tried to say something, but spoke in tongues and my friend Alison yelled out, “What the f**k was that?!” lol! Another friend of mine, John, told me that we were momentarily abducted by aliens. A chill went through my spine, but I had a gut feeling that he was right. I have seen these beings called shadow people several times when I was walking through the woods. They are 3-d see through sillouetted beings about 6 feet tall that have no facial features and are really fast! They’ll dash behind bushes, trees, etc. and peek at you. I felt that they aren’t evil. That they are observing us like we would watch a squirrel in nature or something. I have brought my friend Shelly’s snauser dog back to life, just by using energy. She ate a clothespin, it must of pinched off a blood vessel in her small intestine, and she died. Shelly was crying, I placed my hand on the dog’s chest, saw tendrils of white and green energy flow from my arm to her body, and she rose back up, tail wagging and everything! I immediately felt nauseated and weak, like I had worked out and didn’t eat anything. I had a snack and felt much better after about 30 minutes. I did the same thing to a dragonfly after I saw that he struggled with dying, but I wasn’t weakened that time around, most likely due to the fact that his body didn’t require that much energy to animate it. My telepathy has increased to the point of using it like a cellphone with other psychic people. With people that are asleep in this area, it either confuses them or freaks them out. I purify negative people that are near me by unmasking them. I tell them who they truly are and how they became that way. They either continue to try to hide, even though it is futile, or they truly start to change their ways to positivity. Tons of people somehow find me on a daily basis and I can solve their problems like that. I went through a weird myriad of ascension symptoms: rashes, ravenous hunger, fast growing hair, thinning hair, numb nerves in some areas, sleeping forever, sleeping in short bursts, tons of energy one day and very very worn out the next, and processing phrases in my brain backwards: ” I need to orange drink the juice, I mean drink the orange juice.” lol! I’m now using these abilities to wake up as many beings as possible so that they may go onto the right paths of development on all levels of their being.

      You are possesed by a jinn..its mentioned in the Holy Quran…I have been through all what you mentioned and much more…I don’t think its neccesarily bad that these energy beings (jinns/genies) are in you or around you…but vibrations at night and astral travel our classic signs of jinns trying to get in your body because they feed off of our energy…they reside in a parralel dimension they can see us but normally we can’t see then…lights going out electronics frying…that’s normal…only solution is to remembet Allah…and read the quran play surat yasin on youtube…the evil jinns hate that…I have my manifestations or wishes come true literally in front of my eyes…its also related to your third eye…that’s what they use to get in you…and children are an easier target because they have a weaker energy field around themand a traumatic experience or crying or other strong emotions can leave holes in your aura or energy field and allow them too leech on to your energy. ISLAM is the only religion that clearly states who these beings are…no wonder it is the true religion…when you speak in tongue you are possesed.. that is not some built in power neither is telekinesis or. Telepathy or dead animals rising…that’s a demon possesing your dead dog to make it seem you have the power to give life when real believers know only Allah , the creator can give and take life….this is tenptation and a test this life so be careful and don’t forget who created you…not jinns the themselves were created of fire by Allah…time for you to do research on google on Islam and jinns and convert….

      October 24, 2014

      Anthony, your answers are simple…even though I know you won’t want to hear them. I have known through the years [ being a psychic myself ] that being a psychic can become a vainty trip…knowing what others may not know or experience, but we need to realize we are not at the moment living in Gods world, but satan’s [ remember, God threw satan and his angels back to earth after their huge fight ]. Being psychic can run in families and as such we have a huge responsability of using these abilities correctly. We are more prone to hearing angels as well as demons and we need to know the difference between the two. Otherwise, demons can play with you in many ways. Angels, by Gods orders can tell you if your in danger, ,or if a friend is sick and needs you. God will only do this if its his will to do so. Now, satan, who hates ALL of us, will do other things and can do very dangerous things. This is not a game to be played with, as we are dealing with a spiritual world who’s intent is to sway all of us away from God and toward their world which may just push you over the edge. You have an opportunity to learn from the happenings you have experienced and become closer to God and by such gain wisdom.

    I guess the things that bother me the most is loud noise, comotion, and negative and loud people talking to much. I have to plug my ears or the one thing that sooths my soul is music. I always need alone time and must breath the fresh air outdoors and feel the sunshine. When I go for walks it clears out the clutter in my head.

    I had a strong feeling last October that a friend of mine was having a tough time. This was a knowing on my heart and in the pit of my stomach. It felt like a brick in my stomach. I saw him a month ago and he described for me the events of the past months as the worst time in his life. This was the first confirmation of what I felt. This isn’t the first time I have felt this. This feeling was the strongest I have ever had for any person. I am the people pleaser and have been my whole life. Basically everything you wrote is me. I have thought I was just crazy my whole life. But this connection to this person is so strong even now. I do not understand why.

    can a physic medium have nervous break downs like depression and extreem anxiety? Reason I ask is because I have been sensitive for as long as I can remember and in my early 20’s spirits have followed me but not good ones most I believe to be demons , when I bought my home (which I knew to be haunted it fascinated me almost) I would see demons almost every day it never really bothered me until it started to growl under my daughters bed and claw on the doors so I cleansed the house with sage at first it seemed to be cleared but as the days past I started feeling different , anxiety all the time , more and more reclusive ,tired all the time and a feeling of numbness inside . since that day I haven’t seen any more demons but my health has declined and I have seen more than two different doctors all say im in good health could I somehow have a demon attached to me and not know it or is this a mental breakdown?

      rebecca, it does sound like a powerful demon is with you. For your sake and the sake of your child,you need to get someone of strong faith to go in and rebuke the demon[s]. and in the meantime, get out your bible and get to know God. He can keep them from you. If one attempts to growl, speak or touch you…rebucke him, strongly by saying…in the name of Jesus Christ I rebuke you. If this demon does not leave…you will need to fast, pray and when you feel strong enough rebuke him again. PS, sage won’t do anything, but only for a little while. But GOd can. This is a dangerous demon. Yes, they can make you sick and do other things.Get him away from you and out of your house. I would say to leave, but if this thing followed you home, it will follow you other places. Call on God and get the right person to rebuke it from the house.

    Good evening. I just read your blog post here about the Weiler PSI. As I read on about the characteristics of sensitives and what generally points toward psychic abilities, I was astounded. With the exception of me liking to sleep a lot (which may have to do with depression/anxiety), everything in your post fit me down to the letter. I’m even left-handed, but I bat a ball, play golf and fish right-handed.

    I’ve often thought there was more to me than meets the eye. I’ve been doing some research on the subject this evening. I took a quiz that said I have a high aptitude, and I’ve had paranormal-type things occur in my lifetime. I’m VERY sensitive to the atmosphere of a place whether it be a home, restaurant, store and so forth. When I meet new people I immediately get a “feeling” of what type of person they are.

    I’m interested in seeing if I can develop what I seem to already have been gifted with even further. However, I’m a disabled vet with very little income so an academy is not possible. Finding a psychic or medium who lives in my area and having that person mentor me would likely be the best course of action. Having said that, I can only presume you’re quite in touch with the community. Would you happen to know of any psychics or mediums in the Mankato, MN, USA area?

    Great blog. Keep it up. The skeptics just don’t get it which is too bad for them!

    I have been a sensitive for as long as I can remember , on a particular occasion at the age of seven I dreamt my brothers friend had been in a car accident and died it was very detailed when I woke up I new he was dead and asked my parents immediately and indeed he had , many other experiences almost every day the spirits that followed me are endless and became worse when I bought my first home it became unbearable so I cleansed my home and blocked them and every piece of sensitivity in me this was seven years ago now I deal with anxiety and depression since the day of the cleansing I don’t know what to do i just want to live a happy life.

      Rebecca, I know exactly what your going through. I’ve had this problem all my life, but have learned what to do about it. It started when I was a kid and grew because of my mother. She was into the paranormal world all her life. I’ve learned much about both worlds…Gods and satans. I wasn’t interested in this and my mom tried to get me interested, but i ran from it, feeling it was dangerous…but after she died, then things really started to happen and I’ve had to fight it all my life [ I'm 72 ]. I discovered many things about myself and knew in order to fight evil, I needed God. Have [ and still do ] read study and research the bible and have learned much in the 45 years I’ve studied. God has been my rock and the only thing that has helped me.
      It sounds to me like demons are following you around and are trying to disrupt your home and you. They will try and do this because they hate us all and would love to see all of us stay away from God….they hate him too. This is their job, to try and destroy us. Why? Because they know, their time is near now and because they know God has a plan for all of us…a very good plan.
      Even though I feel very close to God and He continues to hold my hand, I still have to fight demons, but Through Gods word I have learned to do as Christ has told us…when something happens,ask ourselves, is this of God or of satan? I think about that when anything happens, be it a dream , vision, etc. I know satan will tell the truth, but also lie, so we really have to pay attention to what goes on and always ask for Gods help in this. He will guide us the right way.

      Rebecca, Not long ago I had a dream about one of my grandson’s getting hit by a big truck. He lives in ND. I called my daughter immediatly and she warned him to be careful and he did. He’s alright. I had a dream a few months back that a very good friend of ours needed to have her blood looked at and I told her. She didn’t go to the doctor right away, but did after she started to get sick. She went and she’s fine now. The point I’m making is that once your close to God, you begin to see if its God who is sending you a message or satan. God does allow the angels to tell me things if He feels its to help anothers needs, but only if its Gods will. God does not do this all the time, only if he feels its necessary. God does not want us to be afraid because his love has no fear. When He wants us to know something, He’s not going to do it in a way to scare us, but satan or his demons will.
      We are not living in Gods world right now, but satan’s and so are his demons, but angels are here with us. Yes, demons will work on individuals minds and cause anxiety. Years ago one made me feel I was going out of my mind,but I held fast and then is when I learned [ on my own ] all I could about God. I have spent over 45 years now, reading, studing and doing much research about God. God is our answer to everything. He will hold you up as He has me. Get to know him and put on his whole armour as He said in the bible. He loves you and will stand by you. There is always an angel with you.

    Hello happy souls , apart that everything is controlled and created by our minds , any kind of addiction happens to be a result of our thinking . As psychics can feel life through a different kind of lens addiction becomes not a punishment but rather a bliss. Who wants to be addicted ? hahahaha everyone , whether consciously or subconsciously we all cling to love – life and guess what ( reaching for cigarettes ) we all find “our group of people”- psychics no matter where we are . No one said that addiction has to be evil or bare most outrageous impacts on us, or I missed something ? Wishing you all most fantastic week ahead :) and may your thinking be filled with most positive and fabulous thoughts happy souls ;) just love this blog !

    I have to disagree about the not having addictions part. I for one, suffer with addiction issues. Dont take away my cigarettes, Im stressed and anxious from feeling everyone elses emotions. Now, I dont deny that meditation and experience dealing with empathy should enable me to quit. I believe psychics that are aware of their ability are heathier because they are living in conciousness. However, most peoples that are psychic are highly empathic and don’t even recognize either ability in themselves. These people become highly psychologically disordered and use chemicals to cope.

        February 22, 2014

        Who wants to be addicted? I certainly dont nor have I had an easy time trying to quit my addiction. Its nice that you dont have this problem. All that Im saying is that we dont all wake up to our abilities clean, emotion-free psychics. Some of us have emotional, spiritual psychological issues that are deep rooted and caused by always picking up on other peoples emotions. Some of us use smoking as a social barrier or as a release of the stress we encounter as we feel too deeply. This is probably something that only applies to people that are recently aware that they are psychic or dont know how to release other peoples feelings. But I can say that I have always been psychic, Ive only realized it within the last two years. I have always struggled with addiction and dont find it any easier to quit as a psychic, even when I chose to.

          Hi Melissa,
          First of all, a lot of psychic people come into adulthood pretty scarred. You have a lot of company and that includes me.

          You recognize that smoking serves a purpose for you so you’re very aware of the emotional aspect of the addiction. You know yourself, which gives a leg up on most people. If you find another way of dealing with the stress I think you’ll be able to drop the smoking.

          It took me a long time to deal with stress. It’s really hard.

          Melissa,
          I find that addiction for psychic people has something to do with the expectations (conscience or unconscience) of others. To “cope” implies compensating for external factors.

          The next time you try to quit one of your addictions try to hang around the people that perceive and receive you in the manner you like to project. I feel as though you will find it much easier to quit anything in that manner.

          Conversely, if you hang around those that see you in the manner you do not like to project, you may encounter resistance, hence addiction.

      Mark, I am very familiar with this phenomena first hand. A part of you is reaching out to them and hooking on to them pulling them to you. Sometimes it’s visible and can be seen as darts of silver light that shoot out from a persons eyes. Sometimes it feels like a tractor pulling you. It’s more often a bad deal than not because if you go around pulling people it will cause all kinds of attention and unforeseen troubles with your personal life. Best to put a lid on it and use it very carefully very constructively and without doing harm or taking advantage of others weakness.

    Thank you for the well written and thought out article. You should apply for a study grant. Get a few physicians and the like to agree on some sort of questionaire maybe.

    I have had many of the same psi experiences. My great grandmother used to call me an old soul. I dreamt of things happening to people, some I knew some I had never met prior to or as it was taking place. I seemed to “get” things very easily and well ahead of my time. I could “feel” someone, who they really were. Example. I remember a man comming to the door, I was five, I stood behind my father’s leg as I usually had peering around at him. I could feel him like gritty gum from a sidewalk gnashing in my teeth, now I didn’t feel it in my teeth rather that is the gritty feeling he felt like inside. I had felt people before but, that was an intense feeling I will never forget. At a young age I thought everyone could do the same.
    If I had a bad dream about my father or a relative, they took it very seriously. The outside world to my dismay, did not. I had imaginary friends. Not many real ones. I still have a hard time socially because I find most people do not want me to see thier true selves nor thier true intentions. I don’t see a point in them hiding, from others, but mostly from themselves. People tend to do almost anything to avoid knowing even themselves. I definately experienced elevated senses during puberty, and with pregnancy and childbirth. I have not reached menopause. I am 49% left and 51% right brained according to a test I took in college. I have a very vivid and long term memory (can still tell you the atomic weight of every element from high school , exactly 20 yrs. ago.) My first confirmed memory was from age two. Although I am intelligent I am interested in so many things that I doubt I’ll ever stay in the same line of work. I am very artistic, paint, draw, even ran a tattoo studio for two years. I went to nursing after that, website design, photography, graphics design, computer repair I built mine, languages seem to flow easily, I can speak three, I found I can decipher most convetsations easily in almost any language. I lose my passion for something once I’ve mastered it and find myself quickly moving to something new. I have always been a might owl and had frequent oobe’s and lucid dreams. I’ve always had experiences with shadow figures. I never found myself sticking to any habits. Tried many different substances but, never found myself addicted to any. I don’t prefer to drink, and am not a fan of hallucinogens. Marijuana was the only thing I did on more than a few occasions. I’ve never liked the downer feeling either, although mild sedatives have helped me sleep in the past. I am overly sensitive, anxiety and ptsd, depression until I crossed paths with a wonderful hollistic psychologist. SSRI’s had such an adverse affect the doctor listed it as an allergic reaction to avoid any further complications. I hope some of this info was helpful.

    I would like to talk about my experience since searching for an answer lead me to this article. I am a 24 year old male. I have known pain, humiliation and rejection as friends in primary school. I had a very bad childhood at home with a lot of trauma. Because of continuous unhappiness, I have lived all my life with acute anxiety and depression. They are my friends, anyway what is important is that I know to be a sensitive person. I have a impression that I get people very soon, If I focus I can feel them as they are, can even give me a sick sensation. But one night it was different.

    I was playing with my flatmate on the console one night. I was feeling very guilty and anxious like always but with a touch of extra on top. I had an exam the next day for which i did not study. And so while we were playing suddenly my cheerful friend stops and has a feeling of sick and afraid. For me it was usual, because I usually get immersed in the feeling. My friend stops me and asks me if I’m alright and when I stop the game I felt too a change. When I looked at him I understood what he felt, he was feeling exactly like me but could not cope with the feeling. His hole body was shaking, he tried to clench his fists to calm down. It actually did not work to calm him , and for a while there was a deep sensation of enormous pressure. When I started to calm myself down, I realized that his feeling would disappear to. I asked myself this, If we were hanging out like normal and this happened, what was the foreign element here. What was new, I think for sure that in a moment my mind connected with his and I projected my tremendous fear on him. I realized later that also happiness can be sent. I noticed that when I’m happy people stick to me and want to be in the center of my attention.

    I don’t know what to think, but if I could use this I would do it to change peoples racist behavior and probably teach them something about cooperation and love. O and get them out of the houses and outside fighting capitalism and resource exploitation or something like that

      This totally works, but you need some sort of connection with the other person before they will pick up your feelings. It also doesn’t work as well on highly sensitive people because they are used to it already and can shield somewhat.

      • Melissa
        February 22, 2014

        This is untrue. You can pick up on anyones emotions. If you are highly sensitive, you are like a tuning fork and pick up any vibration.

        • craigweiler
          February 22, 2014

          The ability to be aware of other people’s emotions also gives you the opportunity to do something about it.

          And just like you can be a tuning fork and pick up other people’s vibrations, that very same tuning fork can be used to tune other people.

            Very, very true. All it takes is one vibrational wave to change the wave of another person’s. If your energy is high enough, you can change a negative person’s energy just by being near him/her. :)

      Actually, you’d be the perfect police emergency psychologist, because you could thoroughly convince someone who was about to cause serious harm to the public or hostages that s/he truly can trust you and you could calm that person down. Think of the mass shootings you could stop. Not a single shot would have to be fired. You could get terrorists to give up their hostages.

    Hi, I read this and EVERY SINGLE THING DOWN TO THE DYSLEXIA ARE ME..TOO A T! I have 1 child of 3 that is now 19 of whom i have this VERY different connection with..almost like we understand each other on a different level. I am almost positive he has “experiences” . I however have only had one very unique experience but have ALWAYS felt a huge pull toward all things paranormal, psychic and supernatural or unexplained..I feel that i need to “unblock” my third eye somehow but really wish i could find a TRUE psychic or clarvoyant person whom could tell me if I am blocked or just don’t have the ability I feel is in me and can’t seem to channel/unlock or retrieve somehow..I am hoping someone will understand what I am trying to say/ask..and get info on by reading and writting on this site.
    There are so many people that are fake/ scammers and makes it hard to know or find out who to ask or go to for answers. I feel more and more isolated and as if I am truly misunderstood or just not understood at all! I would love to know if anyone else feels yhe way I have explained or can relate to my post here…ANY IDEAS TO FIGURE IT OUT..LET ME KNOW PLEASE!!

    Hi! I have officially never commented on message boards but I’ve finally started to look at my sensitivity more seriously .. All of these things ring true – guilt over feeling like I’m too sensitive to things that happen, incredible connection to animals, very artistic, always slightly on the outside, very overwhelmed in crowds and I often only have a few close friends I love time alone. Most noteably, I have dreams constantly that I recall vivid details in … And More often then not they come true, in some sense, later. I have been told my energy is strongly felt when I’m in a room despite my efforts to slide back. I’ve bed. Told I’m more than Average self Aware.
    I’m looking for more resources – Are there a list of books (sorry if I’ve missed them) you could recommend on these topics (esp dreams, are they called precognative?)

    I’ve been sensitive all my life. I remember being a baby seeing people with bright colors looking in on me. I was adopted at a young age and by 4 these “things” would try to interact with me. As I got older I realized they were spirits. My abilities have only gotten stronger and more complex as I’ve aged. I don’t fit in and learned in a harsh way to not let people close. People have always been afraid of me and it took a long time to understand others just aren’t like me. I can heal, see auras and energy, manipulate energy into heat, hear, see, and interact with spirits, have visions of past and future as well as know when and how people are going to die. My parents had me tested in every way til they gave up. I was told I had to be cursed. I’ve always had God and morals that even my parents said they never understood, but I’m still too different. I’ve learned to block a few abilities, but doing so seems to make me really sick and weak. I’m like a paranormal wrecking crew though. My husband has experienced many of these things with me. It freaks him out but he still loves me. I’m not sure I could be so strong if I were the normal one. The biggest things that changed me, and made me feel crazy were in school. I’d get in arguments with teachers because I knew the lesson plan I swear she taught last week, or arguments with friends because of something that I thought had happened. Its like being in the wrong spot of a time line. I still do this and my husband calls me on it. I trust him, so I have to believe I didn’t do whatever it was yet. The worst is seeing your loved ones die or world disasters and not being able to stop them. I’ve tried, believe me. After my Uncle no one would talk to me. I begged him not to leave and take the next few days off. I told him what road not to go on. I’m directionally challenged so that’s something in itself. He just told me if it was his time it was his time. When he had the accident he looked ok afterwards, but I knew he had til the next night. He had problems breathing and went to the hospital. He requested to see me and we knew it was good bye. It was months before my family talked to me and even longer to look me in the eyes. Then soon after I saw 9-11. I didn’t understand what the towers were so as a kid I drew what I saw. I remember sitting in class and the teacher putting the TV on the news. I also remember asking about the other planes. Old news for me, when asked I explained what “happened”. Needless to say even my favorite teacher crossed the hall and avoided me. When your a kid and don’t understand what’s going on its rough. I had no one to talk to and lost all my friends. I can only believe that God sent me through this to help my kids. Luckily, none of them are as over loaded as I am. They all have only 1-2 abilities so far and I pray it stays that way. They are young and I’ve stood against horrible things to protect them. They have strong gifts which is part of the reason I home school. I want them to feel normal or at least comfortable in their skin, not an outcast. I often wonder if being crazy would be easier. I guess all we can do is try to endure what we can everyday and give the rest to God.

      T.Paul, the answer to your whole statement is at the bottem of your page…endure what you can and give the rest to God. God is the total answer to all of this. He knows this has been rough for many of us and too knows many are trying to deal with it the best they can. He still loves us and is with us all the way if we let him in.

    Im an introvert,mixedanded but mainly left handed.I can sense if someone is good or bad.I have struggled with depression since I was 12 years old, when an accident happened to my family and I lost 2 siblings,I was with them at the time, 5 minutes before the accident I had an awful feeling of dread come over me.It hit me like a ton of bricks and i knew something bad was going to happen.Ive had a couple of other experiences like this one and ive learned to trust my feelings.The hardest part is when you are young, and you dont understand what is going on,and you think there is something wrong with you.One of the only things to help is my relationship and faith with god.

    It’s scary how most of us all here have so many things in common from how we feel , think , and even from the subject on animals and jobs or interests to art and being night owls. In a way the what part of sensitive dont you understand section i just read makes me feel better knowing that this is all actually extremely common amongst us but at the same time bothers me that there’s so many more people that also have to go through the more negative aspects mentioned in the list. And Craig thank you for helping me understand more about myself with this list than I thought I would by finally deciding to research this topic . And for the skeptics recently mentioned , everybody is entitled to there own opinions but you can’t just completely dismiss the fact that so many people here and I’m sure other places or threads describe so much of the same experiences and have so much more than normal that’s similar with one another . And I’m sure the higher percentage of people here who were genuinely researching this topic didn’t just wake up and decide that on that day there gonna go online to stumble on this forum and start making stuff up about themselves. And on a psychic one for that matter lol

    Hi my names Rick, I am also a “feeler” (At least i think, as this is the first time I’ve heard that term but makes total sense to me. ) Along with being able to occasionally know when something bad will happen in the near future the moment I wake up . I am young only 23 but have been dealing with this (I don’t know what to call it and if its even the case because I too doubt myself sometimes) since I could remember , very young. I can’t help but feel other people’s pain and emotions even when there not directly around me and even if they try and hide there emotions to the utmost perfection. I can also see ” more like a detailed feeling that paints a sorta mental picture that i cant actually physically see but feel ” consequences happen for people’s actions before anything even happens . And I’m positive it’s not just common sense thinking . It’s hard to explain but I’m sure you understand . Medications never worked for me as a child and I began to feel like a medical test dummy so I stopped taking medication because I was getting mixed results from anxiety to bipolar to being told its only acute depression . Plus at a certain point in life I just knew medication wasn’t going to solve my problems and that it was something more but never suspected that what I’m dealing with had anything to do with causing my depression until more recently maybe 18 yrs old . It’s difficult because I have my own things going on In my life right now for example recently losing my son and x fiancé and moving back to newyork only for a hurricane to come and take everything I had left less than 2 weeks later so that was hard enough and only scratches the surface yet I still can’t focus on my own life occurrences because I am overly sensitive to everything and everyone’s feelings around me to an extent . ” at least I hope to an extent and that I’m not feeling EVERYONE’S emotions around me ” Even though it feels like that at times . I’m sorry for the very long post I never spoke openly about this and needed to so its just flowing out plus its all difficult to deal with and this seems to put my mind at ease even if its just for the moment. ” Whats most difficult is the emotional part and being extremely sensitive almost to the point that I feel I can be paranoid at times for no reason when absolutely nothing has happened for me to be the way or feel the way I do at certain times along with crying for no reason at different times throughout the day or night . Even at this moment I am upset just talking about this and trying to describe it . Even my mother noticed some things about me when I was younger for instance ( i had long forgotten but remembered clearly afterwards about this until years later when something similar happened with me again and my mom had told me about that morning and how it wasnt something she brushed off but instead baffled her) on the morning of 9/11 /01 my mother had come in my room to wake me up for school ” I believe 6th or 7th grade ” and for no apparent reason when I opened my eyes I felt weak over tired and I was upset if I remember correctly I was tearing but I know I felt overwhelmed and scared and the first words I said was mom is something bad gonna happen today and she said no baby everything is fine and then I rephrased myself and said no mom something bad is gonna happen today please don’t go to work ” and she works in a building almost directly across the street from the World Trade Center and her bus drops her off in front of that building around 9 something a.m and on that day I found out she was supposed to go to the W.T.C to her second office there that morning as soon as she got off the bus before going to her usual building.” Well long story short ” a little late for that lol ” she told me no everything’s fine and I listened and got ready for school then left on a school bus. By some miracle she got a random call from a neighbor a few blocks away asking to please take her food shopping before work and to be late and she did even though she is always on time if not early . My mothers life was saved that day since the late bus she took was just getting to the Verrazano bridge and stopped by traffic as the first building was hit only minutes earlier when she should of been in that building . She flew to my school to pic me up and explained everything to me and I was in shock because I remembered that morning and how I knew something was going to happen and felt overwhelmed with emotions including the odd feeling of feeling like running or hiding or just staying home with mom which was unusual at that time because I was always out with friends and didn’t like to be inside bored. So to me its more than just feeling its knowing things I shouldn’t be able to know a lot of the times. It’s gotten to the point that I have been home and in my room with minimal socializing and no job and barely go outside at all anymore because i cant deal with it , i dont blame this all on only this subject because there is a bit more like just becoming a little lazy which really isnt me, i have adhd at least thats what im told since i was 8 and even now and am usually fast talking and naturally hyper, happy and enjoy making people laugh even if it makes me look ridiculous lol but i think when everything went wrong earlier this year i stayed in from depression and then realized i didnt feel as overwhelmed and judgemental as when im outside or around people throughout the day and picking things up left and right like my brain never stops processing thoughts for even a minute even when i sleep. I am happy with what I have in life like the loving caring hard working and amazing mother I was blessed with and the beautiful child I was blessed with and with who I am today as a person and dont get me wrong I take pride and enjoy helping others but I feel like I can’t help but always need to satisfy and ease other people’s emotions and needs to the point that Its hard to get a fix or pinpoint my own needs and emotions because I’m always picking up on everyone else’s so much that I tend to forget about myself . I do pick up on positive energy too of course but I can’t help but feel I’m more sensitive to negative emotions like when someone is sad or upset or how they have something big going on in there life that is having a negative effect on them even if they hide it and never say a word to me about anything negative going on at all. I see beyond there smiles as if I don’t see with my eyes at all but instead feel with them so I just know when things aren’t right . Also I can’t help but always ask ” are you ok? ” for what seems no reason at all and when people say yea and I tell them I know something’s wrong and tell them to a T how there feeling ( it kinda feels like there my own emotions but I know there not ) they have this look like there confused but people open up to me anyway almost immediately afterwards and I’m always told that they dont know why but they just feel like they could tell me anything because its like I can read them and im easy to talk to and that they could just trust me with whats going on as if they feel I already know and understand them but they don’t know why. And in my opinion I think it’s mostly because I tell them things about themselves at that moment that i shouldn’t of known like there specific feelings or things there dealing with at that time or maybe just my energy because I’m also told by everybody even people i just meet that there comfortable around me . So this does have positive effects on life also. But where does that leave me ? Without any room to feel for myself so when I do get a chance to at least try its always confusion and being upset because I don’t know or remember how I myself feel and If its my emotions I’m feeling or instead again someone else’s . I wake up crying sometimes for no reason when I myself am not even upset and things could be going perfectly fine at that time . And trust me I can tell the difference between when I’m depressed at a specific time and when the emotions are for some other unknown reason . I also have read this and thought the same thing you did . It made total sense to a T how it described me . It’s very hard being able to read people so perfectly even without knowing them for more than 10 minutes but it has made me a very good judge of character and has had a big part in who I befriended and trusted over the years because its made it eerily easy to see right through the ill intended people and distinguish the good from the bad and the honest from the dishonest while still at the same time showing respect to both because you have to give people chances and at the same time be sure not to just turn your back on someone you meet just because you had a ” feeling ” about them and give them a chance to be different from what you’ve picked up off them and then if it doesn’t work for the better you know you were just reassured that your guess was correct and from there I follow my better judgement and move on . I’ve learned to give chances to most ( not all because sometimes i get such a bad reading from someone that i just stay away.) before making decisions that are based upon what I picked up from them even though i already know most of the time what I picked up turns out to be right. There’s a lot more to the things I can do that can’t normally be explained but there harder for me to talk about and again i apologize for the long read but this is really the first time I have opened up and talked about all this ( because of fear of being judged or looked at like I’m nuts ) besides to the very few maybe 3 people all females that noticed on there own by things I say or know which I shouldn’t and things I say and then it happens and they remember so they brought it up to me and I told them kind of in a joking sense that I might be psychic without making them think that I really think that . One of them insist they think I really am but I still never told them that I really think i am. So this is a first for me and had years of building up so I had to get some off my chest . Thank you all for listening and please if anyone has come up with a solution for me to deal with and accept but at the same time be able concentrate on my own feelings and not let what i pick up get in the way of my normal everyday life and get out without letting this sensitivity to things get in the way of how I feel because it has had an effect in a way on my everyday life then more advice would be helpful and thanks for sharing your experiences .

    Loved this! Thank you. I’ve always known I was different but I just go with the flow. My ability makes me question my abilities – I know that might sound weird, but for instance. When I have an instant thought I go with it cuz it’s never guided me wrong. When I find that I’m processing to much I get lost in the thought if I’m making it up – intuition or wishful thinking, then I shut down and become quiet like I’m waiting for the answer. I get short flashes or visions of things. Basically I find myself in a state of knowing without to much knowledge of the situation. Now my daughter 17 is experiencing simular things. She gets tears from out of the blue not crying just tears streaming down her face? Cats seem to be around a lot and recently she has told me she sees things – for instance she says mom I see people. When I asked what that means she said the other day she was driving and saw a man in all brown clothes just standing on the side of the street when she looked back he was gone like he never exsisted. Do these seem natural to you have you? Both her and I are exstremely sensitive, me so more then her. Days I feel like im just not liked. If none of this makes vanheuklon sence it’s okay it actually felt good to type it :)

    Hey I am 18 years old and I am confused. I don’t know whether I am physic, a lightworker or a natural witch. Ever since I was a child, my animals and loved ones that past away would appear to me in dreams or in the day. I love animals and seam to have a bond with any animal I encounter, nature is calming to me and I can sense people’s emotions, sometimes I can predict when a certain person is going to text me or someone is going to show up at my house, I can sense my family when they are near me. Sometimes when I go to new places it feels as if I already was there. It seams like a attract hurt people and people tend to like me. Can you please help me?

    Everyone is very much on the right track with the mechanics of a reality that is interspersed with another that “can not exist” but does. I haven’t read every post but God will show you that the truth behind it all is simply him if you seek that truth humbly before him. The power is in you but you are not the power. I am perhaps the luckiest person alive to have been given the knowledge that I have given, and it has been at least a thirty year journey. Stay with him and he will stay with you.

      I assure you that what your experiencing or have experienced is very real. Unfortunately interpreting it in the fashion that you do is very troubling and very common. I urge you not to subscribe to or limit yourself to the boundaries set by the contrived tradition and culture that precedes you. Truth is elusive but some of it is attainable. Perhaps in another thirty years you will be able and open to understand.

    I have felt all of these things got a long as I can remember. Accompanied by a constant awareness of what is about to happen either immediately or within a certain amount of time. I can’t tell if im aware of what will happen or if if I’m causing it to Halen by thinking about it. I used to feel as if I was m losing my mind which started my panic attacks but as I learned to control my thoughts I learned to r use what I thought would happen to make combative decision but I am still learning and always will. I cannot stand to see suffering or pain in anyone friend or foe. I have the most vivid imagination imaginable therefore I easily can put myself in someone else’s place and feel every bit of pain, emotion and can usually even imagine their exact thoughts. I would appreciate any firm of guidance anyone has to offer I am very open to any and all information or knowledge. Justin smith 4933997994 calgary Alberta justingmsmith@gmail.com

    Hi

    I was a born psychic but only really realised it in my teen
    Years. I m now 30 years and its still a
    problem for me. Sometimes I feel like I’m loosing
    My mind. Some people call it a gift. But some
    Times I wonder if its a punishment for all
    My sins maybe. Anyways no one in my family
    Really understands me.
    Sometimes I can’t differentiate between my feelings
    And the next persons.

    I hate crowds. I can’t stand certain people cause
    Their negative vibes make me feel so ill.
    I dream about stuff b4 it happens, I feel like
    De javu sometimes. I can read peoples thoughts
    I can pick up vibes over a chat with someone
    Over internet or the phone. I have flashes of things
    That happened or are about to happen. I know when something
    Evil is around. My body begins to shake.

    I have felt death b4 it took the people. Its a cold
    Sick feeling. Your body goes numb and icy. I don’t
    Know how else to explain it
    I feel everything from the atmosphere.

    Every emotion for me is heightened. Anger turns to rage
    I don’t just get sad I get depressed. Sometimes
    I cry cause the pain is to much yet that pain isn’t mine

    I can sense the littlest things from the amostphere
    Peoples pain. Animals. trees. Plants.
    Mother earths pain.

    Sometimes it feels like electric current
    from the atmostphere
    Is rushing into every pore of my body at high speed

    My dad had what I have only now he’s passed away
    And I guess I have inherited it.

    I barely sleep. I live in my bedroom most of the time
    Cause the outside world sometimes becomes
    To overwhelming for me. I have healing abilities
    As well but I’m to afraid of it.

    I fear no one and nothing except myself. Some
    One said to me that I need to open my 3rd eye
    Well I’m too afraid to. I have been told that
    I need to accept what I have. Well I’m just to scared
    Anyways these are just some of the things I can
    Do. I may come across as weird to some people
    But if u are someone like me ul know how difficult
    Everyday is

      anon2, I too have many of the abilities you have. This has been going on for many years. For 54 years now, I have studied, read and researched Gods word and have learned much. Yes, there is a God and there is a satan. People like us have like an inborn right brain that picks up things. I do not use these abilities unless I know they are not from satan. God said to test the spirits, if they be evil or good. I do that by Gods word and what I have learned from him. I do not go out of my way to tell anyone what I pick up if I can help it. I know satan can use these abilities against us if we don’t know the difference. If you stay close to God, He will stay close to you even with this. You will learn the difference between who God is and who satan is. God loves you and He will stay with you. Just do what I have to do at times when things happen…ask yourself, is this of God or satan? Staying close to God will help you with the answers. There is so much more I could say here, but the main thing is…stay close to God, love him and obey him by way of the 10 Commandments, to the best of your ability.

      Hello, my name is Tayla and i am 15 years old. For the past few months i have not only been experiencing a lot of dejavu but i can feel the physical pain of others whether it be psychic, a character on tv or of somebody in person. A few weeks ago i noticed a scar had appeared on my hand yet i hadnt ever done something to put it there. I also practise energy healing quite a lot on myself and people around me. I was wondering if it is possible to have a psychic connection to somebody you may have never met, and be able to feel the physical pain they might be enduring (cutting, falling over, etc.) i also wake up and find 1 or more bruises on my body without knowing how they came to be there. It would much appreciated if somebody replies to this comment or has some idea as to what this may be.

        May 7, 2014

        Tayla, I can tell you right now that energy healing sounds great, but can be deceptive. I know this may be hard for you to believe, but satan can use this energy and make it appear its coming from God. I have a friend that does this stuff and satan has already deceived her and more. God is the healer and He has asked us to pray in order to help someone. Yes, we have doctors, that God has allowed, but getting into what your doing can be dangerous. Be very careful, as you are now apparently receiving some physical problems.

      I can understand what you might be going through mate. We all go through these strong emotions timeand again. All we need to understand and do is to not get carried away with the feeling. What id do in this situation is to read sacred books which have alot of positivity along with working on these moods so that they dont reoccur or atleast limit the occurrence.
      Chin up and be strong my friend cos gods with us!

    Thank you for creating such a wonderful resource. I consider myself to be a skeptic. albeit an open minded one. I have had many experiences over the course of my life which have caused me to question what the ¨truth¨is about Eastern mysticism and psychic intuitive abilities. I am what many people would consider to be a highly sensitive empathic person if not a garden variety psychic. I look forward to seeing future articles

    Craig, I’ve seen you mention Ritchey’s ASP book in a positive light, both here on your blog, and elsewhere on the Internets. Would you be at all open to doing an article that would be a book review of it? Perhaps I’m not the only one who would appreciate something like that.

    I learned about his book years ago, read some Amazon reviews of it, and read the free samples of the book that were available on the website. Probably read through his questionnaire as well. Somehow I just didn’t click with David Ritchey. Though, on and off, I toyed with the idea of ordering the book. I was intrigued. And still am, especially now, having been exposed to your writing. But there was always some internal resistance, on my part, to the book.

    What am I resisting? It’s a little too fuzzy to fully get a grip on and to clearly explain, but I seemed to feel that the book would be a little too woo-woo, a little too disorganized, and a little too subjective and laden with the author’s own biases, personal politics, personal baggage, opinions and filters. Presented as facts. I guess I am worried about wasting time and money, investing emotionally, getting my hopes up, and not getting any peace or genuine insight out of it. The topic of sensitivity is close to my heart. And I have read both some deeply helpful, and some quite unhelpful, things on the topic. But I could be completely off about Ritchey’s book here. It’s just a gut feeling on my part.

    You seem to present Ritchey’s book as serious and rigorous, which would be really wonderful. I really like the way you write about that book.

    I was raised around a lot of New Agey type stuff. And I guess, perhaps, like some kids who are raised around fundamentalist Christianity, and later consciously choose to leave it behind, I have somewhat of a distaste for it. Based on my own subjective experience of (what I perceive as) the associated ideological and behavioral hypocrisy of that whole scene.

    Science has its own blind spots. Its own prejudices, politics, taboos, ideologies, knowledge-filters and dogmas. No doubt about it. But, the way I see it, it is no less so in New Age Land. There are also dogmas, politics, unstated assumptions, snake oil sales-persons, and silly fundamentalisms there, worthy of any backwoods Baptist (sorry!) or materialist scientist. Since the constellation of ideas, practices, opinions, insights and disciplines that I would loosely gather under the umbrella of “New Age”, often deal with things that are more subtle, more subjective, less universally-perceptible, and harder to pin down than what materialist science deals with…I would say that the same problems that are there in science exist to an EVEN GREATER DEGREE in New Age/parapsychology. Though it is, without a doubt, a field that I find fascinating.

    For the sake of fuller disclosure: I have been fascinated with ghosts, UFOs, Loch Ness monsters, and all such matters Fortean since childhood. And have been fascinated with religion(s), mysticism, God, gods, yoga, and meditation since adolescence. I have a B.Sc. degree, but am not just some blind and stubborn skeptic.

    I have to say that I have resonated more with your few pithy comments about Ritchey’s book, then with anything that I read in the free samples of the book itself. And more than with any review of his book that I read on Amazon. Respectfully…would love to read a deeper exploration of the book from you.

    Thanks for reading.

      Hi Anon,
      Putting on my psychic, New Age hat, I would say that if Ritchey’s book causes such a reaction for you, then it’s probably best to buy the thing and read it.

      Putting on my Rational Thinker hat, here’s my take on the book. It was intended to be read by researchers, not the New Age crowd. He cites studies and provides evidence for his assertions so that you know that he’s not just going off based on some thoughts in his head.

      People who take the time to do the research, both their own and reading what other people have done, (Ritchey has done this) are more credible in my opinion.

    Another nice article. Thank you, Craig.

    I did LSD twice in adolescence, and hallucinogenic mushrooms a few times around the same time.

    The second LSD experience was so intense that, in a very real sense, I am still processing it to this day. It wasn’t necessarily bad, but it was HEAVY. Really deep stuff. Philosophical insights, psychological insights. Insights about my family, about patterns in my life. Not what I had been planning on, exactly. I was dancing at a rave, and all these things were going on internally. I had been reading a lot of Carlos Castaneda at the time, having been introduced to his writing by my father. Who in turn had been introduced to Castaneda by a friend of the family. An acquaintance of mine had also been reading Terence McKenna. I don’t remember too much from what he told me about McKenna, other than some stuff about UFOs (which I was not really ready for) and some stuff about “heroic doses” (which felt more up my alley). Anyway, it was a really profound trip.

    I had some friends who had done LSD around 90 or a 100 times. I can’t even begin to imagine doing anything like that, given the processing time that I have needed to unwrap, digest and assimilate my second experience with it.

    The first LSD experience, by contrast, was more fun and light and easy. Just a shared adventure with friends. And that first LSD was probably cut with speed, at least to some extent.

    I never liked the feeling that alcohol gave me. Just got a little dizzy, a little goofy, a little sleepy and a little nauseous. I just didn’t find the feeling fun at all. Didn’t feel good. Didn’t like the smell of it either. Still don’t. Consequently, I drank very little.

    The fact that I have an alcoholic family member might have also contributed somewhat to my dislike of booze, at least in the sense of de-glamourizing it, but it wasn’t only that.

    As a side note: I’m open to the possibility that the family member in question may have some degree of intuitive/psychic ability, which they were overwhelmed by, unable to process or make sense of, and which they were attempting to medicate/escape from using alcohol.

    I used to like weed and hash, and smoked it with increasing frequency as the end of high school neared. But then, at one point, I just had enough. Smoked my last joint on the first day of University, at a friend’s house, and had my last beer not too long after that. Have not used recreational consciousness-altering substances since the mid-90s.

    I’m glad to see you mention Kyra Mesich. I read her book, some years ago, around the time that I was trying to read all I could about HSPs. Her perspective/recommendation on yarrow flowers is interesting. For some time, I would consume yarrow flower herbal tea, as a sort of experiment, to see if it aided at all in managing sensitivity.

    If you haven’t read it, another interesting book is G. Burton Appleford MD’s 1988 “Sensitivity: Agony or Ecstasy”. I think I first became aware of it via Elaine Aron’s “Comfort Zone” newsletter, and ended up getting a copy of the book through an inter-library loans service.

    Take care.

    I find it very interesting how your blog mentions how a lot of psychic people (even women) have “hypersexuality”, as I think I am one of those types of women. These are my thoughts on that particular point. People tend to think that sexuality is restricted merely to sexual behavior which is actually not quite true. From what I understand, sexuality is actually more of an attitude or a part of our personality that’s about how we connect and feel towards other people (physically, emotionally, mentally, etc.). It involves biological sex and anatomy & physiology, gender, sexual function and practice as well as how we socially and sexually interact with other people. Now with that being said, with psychic people I think that the reason why a lot of them can be “hypersexual” is because they feel a stronger connection or a stronger desire to connect with people generally speaking perhaps (and a better ability to “read” people).
    Now if you want to get into say chakras and such, I tend to believe that people who have a more “complete sexuality” have their chakras more in alignment and balance, therefore having a stronger connection with oneself and in that a better ability to connect with others. To me having your chakras more in alignment would make one more balanced and perhaps less inhibited than the average individual. In this, they are “wired” naturally to possibly be more expressive of themselves. That or they could go the opposite route and have “hyposexuality” because they are so sensitive to other people’s energies and it can be overloading for them (since hey a lot of psychic people need time alone to “recharge” a lot and some already experience sensory overload frequently as it is). Those are just my own personal thoughts and anyone is free to correct me.

    Great post overall. I love this blog you have going, please keep up the excellent work!

    this is a really cool blog, you’re all really lucky you have those powers…
    i’m just wondering, do you think it’s possible there’s an in-between between psychic and normal – for instance for normal people to have occasional beyond-nature experiences without them necessarily being “psychics”. Like, my personality does include some common traits of psychics – sensitivity, empathy, nature, music…- but also doesn’t coincide with alot of the other ones- like introversion, animals, avoidance of conflict – and also i’ve taken alot of the online “card-guessing” psychic tests and usually do average- indicating no pyshic ability. Yet, i have had experiences in my life, like several dreams- some i’ve had as a child, some recently , that have more-or-less clearly reflected the future. also, i’ve had a few other occurrences that were seemingly beyond-nature, like in elementary school i told someone that something (uncommon) would happen to him, which then happened within a week.

    Are these signs of psychic ability, or just a few random things without much significance?

      Hi David,
      In answer to your first question, yes. There are people with all shades of psychic ability including those display psychic ability through avoidance. (They meant to do something but ended up doing the opposite.)

      The cards aren’t a very good test of psychic ability. Testing for it is actually quite complicated. A lot of people have precognitive dreams, so this is probably something meaningful. I’m not really able to judge other people’s experiences, you really have to do that for yourself.

    I have always been a little different….

    I am a little on the accepting side of things because I am genuinely too scared to accept the facts.

    Everything you wrote above fits me to a T minus the artistic trait… I do however have an extreme love for natural and feel my calmest when I am in environments that feel more “pure” to me (if that even makes any sense)

    As a child I lived in a house that my family said weird things happened in. I was not told of any of these things, yet I had a friend in which i spoke to that I called them man, which to this day I don’t care to try to remember (I’m too afraid to know)

    A friend of mine became pregnant shortly after I had my daughter and the day before her ultrasound she came over and I knew when she came over that her baby didn’t develop and was essentially dead (I did not share this will her)

    Again, a few months later while I was driving to see a friend the thought of her being pregnant came to me. I hadn’t seen her in over a year and we didn’t really talk often, but I within 15 minutes of being around her I couldn’t help it and I blurted out “you’re pregnant, how far along are you?” She didn’t know that she was of course said she wasn’t. A month later I received a text message informing me that she was indeed pregnant.

    I also knew the day that my daughter’s egg implanted (I did the math) and distinctly remember telling a friend that I thought I was pregnant. I took a test, but of course it’s far too early for any store bought test to pick up and it came up negative. I was still extremely skeptical, but accepted that it said I wasn’t pregnant (I wasn’t trying)

    Anyway, there are a lot of unexplainable things that I have said/done over the years that simply do not make any sense to me whatsoever.

    I have had experiences where I have like someone has entered a room and I know for a fact that there is indeed nobody there.

    I’m sure you can tell by now that I’m accepting of whatever it is that I do and it genuinely scares me. My anxiety can get quite out of control at times as well…

      August 12, 2013

      I should probably expand on a few more things.

      The negative pregnancy test that I took too early ended up being a positive a month later.

      My S/O had talked years ago about wanting children someday. In the middle of this conversation I told him that our first child would be a female and what her name would be. Of course my choice of name was a controllable factor, but me knowing that she was going to be a girl wasn’t.

      When I met my S/O at the age of 15 while I was dating somebody else I could have told you in the two minute meet and greet that we would have History and that our first child was going to be a girl with the name that we have given her.

      Things like this scare and confuse me beyond belief and I don’t know if I want to embrace it.

      There are so many strange things that can do unexpectedly that scare and confuse me.

      I am fairly lazy at times, so I can honestly tell you that I didn’t really read your entire post. I did read anything that was point form.

      I am an easily anxious person with a gigantic heart. I feel the pain of others and and feel very overwhelmed in loud, crowded places where there are too many things happening at the same time.

      In school I was liked, but more of an outcast and I kinda like it that way. I am sociable, but can only handle a limit of three people at one time or I withdraw myself. I had learning disorders as a child and still have to work through them as an adult.

      Elizabeth, I too have had many experiences. Such as knowing if some one is going to die, I have visions of the future at times, etc. I am very careful to what comes to me, as I know too, there is a satan and there are demons [ I have seen them and they have taunted me my whole life ], but I also know God and He has helped me a lot with all of this. It has taken me 54 years to learn the difference between satan and God. Like I told someone else on this site…God tells us to test the spirits to see if they are good or bad. The only way one can do this is by knowing who God is and that way, you know who satan is, then you’ll know if what ever you experience is of God or satan. Having this ability can also become a vain thing and we have to be very careful of that, as satan will use it against you. I’m fixing to turn 72 in a few days and this has been with me since childhood and like I said, I spent 54 years doing nothing but reading, studing and researching what is in the bible, because I wanted to understand how to deal with all this. It still happens, but I better understand why and how to deal with it. When you were a kid and had a friend called man, I can tell you right now, it was a demon. Angels serve God and deliver what ever God ask them too, to an individual and they don’t hang around…unless God were to ask one to do that. But too, we all have an angel that does stay by us and watch over us. WE at this time do not live in Gods world, but satan’s. That you will find in the bible. That is why its so important to know the difference…be it God or satan.

    Hi, I’m not sure i fit in here as a psychic but the above descriptions mostly apply to me. I have suffered from anxiety over the years and take medication. I was bullied at school. I am artistic. I hate confrontation and will blame myself. Also i will replay over and over again the arguement and will go somewhere and cry. I hate myself for this and wish i could be stronger and not care. I will not travel to certain countries in case i see animals suffering. I have a dog and a bird. I worry about animals. My problem is holding it all in until one day i blow, so beware. LOL
    Apart from a peculiar episode of coincidences last year i have had no psychic experiences. I have been told by mediums and psychics that i have healing abilities and a natural psychic. Do they tell everyone this ? I am 47 next month so surely i would know by now. They also say i am starting to open up and will start to see signs.

      Hi Julie,
      You certainly fit the profile of a psychic person based on your description, but if you want to be convinced then you have to start paying attention on a regular basis to the information that you receive and how accurate it is. Most people, even properly trained skeptics have some healing ability, so that isn’t such a big deal.

      One scientific theory that seems to be supported is that psychic ability normally works under the radar of conscious thought all the time. It is only really noticeable in some situations where you cannot find an important answer any other way. It takes time to get enough evidence to be convinced, so don’t feel like you have to know right away. If your intent is to know this for sure about yourself, you’ll get your answer one way or another.

          It should take a lot to convince you. It’s a sign of a healthy intellect. Psi can be tricky and you have to sort out wishful thinking, biases etc.

          Of course, as soon as I say this something may come along that is so obvious as to remove all doubt. You never know . . .

      julie, because of the many things that has happened in my life, I too have had many anxiiey’s in my life. I an physic, but don’t use those abilities unless God sends an angel to let me know something. But first I ask myself, is this of God or of satan. Do not be ashamed for who you are. You sound to me like a very sensitive individual that has no hate , nor malice within you. Your a good person.
      As far as psyics go, you have to be very careful to who you talk too…some no nothing, others may know something, but even with them you have to ask your self…is what their saying of God or is satan coming through in a sutle way. Satan will lie and tell the truth.
      Julie, your goodness is light and it will shine through toward others. This is what God seeks from all of us. His light is love…pure love. Your abilities are already there, kindness, sensitive to feelings, love. Those are your abilities, julie.

    I was wondering if you could help me out? I have had instances where I think I may be psychic but I am not sure. I am 16 years and though these occurrences are not always frequent, I think they may be significant. For example, a couple years ago we were in the car ride on our way to meet my Dad for dinner before he left to go out of town (or so I thought). On the way to the restaurant all I could think about was how much fun it would be if we went to Disney world with my cousins and aunt and uncle. Then my mom suddenly pulled into a Dunkin Donuts parking lot, my Dad was there and he got into our car and they handed us a box and told us to open it. I even said on camera right before we did, “Is it a trip to Disney world?” and it was! I had no knowledge of it and then we get to the airport and my aunt and uncle and cousins were there and going too. This had occurred when I was 12. Another day I had been feeling horrible and all day I thought something bad was going to happen, like I could feel it but I didn’t think much of it so I decided to just forget about it and go to bed and right before I went upstairs my mom informed me that my great grandma had died. I’ve had things like that happen before with death and also sometimes things that I see in my dreams come true. But its nothing significant in my dreams it will be that my friend got a blue long champ purse and the next day I’ll see them and that day they bought a blue long champ purse. I don’t know if it is just a coincidence or if there is something more… Thoughts?

      These things seem like psychic stuff to me. But it isn’t important whether I think you’re psychic, but whether you do. And you’ll know more as these sorts of things continue to happen. You don’t have to decide right now. You can wait until you have more information.

      One of the most basic things you can do is keep a diary of your experiences. That way you can look for patterns and come to your own conclusions about what seems to be going on.

      A friend of mine, Andy Paquette, kept a dream journal. He discovered that many of his dreams were precognitive. He wrote a book about his experiences.

    Hello happy and amazing souls:) the other day by total coincidence or not ( since in life there are no coincidences ) found this website that really helped me a lot just to put Everything aside and tell myself for once in all languages at once- see , it is you ! And just as everyone here, have been having all sorts of exciting encounters feelings visions dreams flights sensations of pressure, someone caressing my face etc. oddly enough last week my family learned of a long passed away heeler from my dad s side, we knew of my some of ladies from my mothers side only. My mother sister and brother( I’m the middle child born 82 and my sister 79 ) all have extremely high sensitivity though I see to be the one who always spoke and share all excitement of it and got kind of regarded as hmmm spooky lol. Well I always tried to kind of put it aside and focus on so calle “mortal” life hmm and it always reminded me of it’s presence. And always calling.Thanks god there is tobacco can’t stop smoking though absolutely adore it. I paint and smoke my lungs out with lots of coffee and now something inside me is more ready to accept it fully.Thank you so much for the author of this truly amazing blog and to all of you posting here :) sending everyone brightest smile with lots of positive thoughts and most inspiring ideas :) I know you all would feel them ( waving ) p.s- do everyone here find “mortals” as boring? Lol I do though love them even if they get spooked out . Super happy hug be great and wish you love :)

    Hi Craig Weiler,
    I am currently battling some new yet old issues in my life and this post really hit home. I am not sure why but I feel a strong need to mention the following: my name is Liset Ayala, I am 29 yrs old and will turn 30 in late september. I don’t know why I needed to say that but I did. I would love to here your input on my situation! Both my dad and granfather were psychic, my dad discovered his abilities shortly before I was born which was in his mid 30’s. I am the youngest of five daughters, could any of us have psychic abilities?, is what I have asked myself for years. I myself am a hsp to the core, so is my eldest sister. I’ve had this curiocity inside for a long time, then, suddenly out of no where I get the notion that I want to stay at a haunted hotel for the weekend, I’m not really sure why but deep down inside think I just want to see what will happen, will I feel anything?, I believe that is my true intent. Only I’m not sure if it truly is a good idea, I mean I’ve considered diggerent situations like going with my husband, going alone, a crowd of girls, one person, couples or my two kids and the hubby, or not at all, don’t know what to do, Im really confused and curious! What do you think?

    July 2, 2013

    Thank you for being so open. Like many others have commented, your descriptions hit so close to my life! Turbulant childhood, somehow resulting in my becoming a people pleaser with extreme problems dealing with feelings of anger. Never realized for years that I was feeling others feelings as an empath – now I do and that is a great help. Can hardly deal with crowds. I still go out and play music in a group setting, but sometimes I feel too much and always prefer sitting on the outer edge, to protect myself from feelings held by others which have at times overrun my own mood. It has got to where I can hardly leave the house. I don’t have animals, but lots of plants and feel I can hear them – which sounds bizarre, I realize, but usually I just let them tell me when they need water and how much. I found this site because I’ve been having these incredible experiences mentally connecting with someone who seems to be in my future linearly. (btw, he seems extremely psychic and seems to easily read my mind. the first time we saw each other, we just stared at each other for a long minute – I just felt like he ‘saw’ me – even though I would not actually talk to him for another very long time). Maybe that sounds strange, but I also saw and could not forget these two men in the past who I subsequently ended up dating – by meeting them online, so it was not like I saw them and then approached them and there were years between the spottings and the meetings. Many, but not all thankfully, of my family feel toxic to me. I feel I tried and tried to be a good family member, but in return I just got a lot of super negativity. Now even if I have a trip home scheduled, it’s like I am in panic attack mode day in and day out, so I’ve had to except this life as a loner. One is physically abusive even as an adult. A few love to insult me, basically emotionally abusive in an ongoing way. Now I do feel I am the bad person for not maintaining a relationship, but now I see I was always the one making the effort, trying to be the good family member, the family punching bag, different and too sensitive, and once I stopped, that was it – not like they are racing here to spend time with me, so I guess it was for the best. Meanwhile, my finances aren’t great but I simply cannot bring myself to obtain a corporate position. I am such a softie I tend to get eaten alive by the super competitive – factually – two clear cut cases that I could have taken to court but did not. Also, I just can’t see the point. Too many talents and interests in a way – very confusing. Greatest gift is music – but how can I pursue a musical career if I have a hard time in the public eye? Sometimes I try to hide my talent because it is hard to endure the jealousies and having to see others feel bad about themselves when I can see they are comparing themself to me. So in a group, I tend to purposely dial it down. More things – like radios won’t tune right around me about 50% of the time, other times they are fine (I have 3 in the house and all three do this) – popping lightbulbs (not always, but when my energy is intense). Weird electric malfunctions. Slowing the computer / strange errors that don’t seem possible. Text message from my deceased friend (by intercepting part of a message sent by another / confirmed by that person). Seeing people in outline right after they have passed and they’ve come to say toodles. Lately I’ve been hearing from passed musicians who seem to be my guides. Co-write a song with one of them – it sounds nothing like my other songs, by the way, much more like this person’s work. One great musician just passed; was very sad – even crying. Then he was right there with my main guide and I felt a wash of joy and was immediatly happy – I knew he was still there and even with me as he could not be if alive. Can really relate about wanting to be ‘normal.’ I have never fit in and get seem to get along best with the very young and very old. So reading through your blog today is such a tremendous help! I don’t talk about these things as others because they are so far out! As for ghosts, I consciously try blocking them out, but I don’t mind it when spirits come, if that makes any sense. Also, I don’t feel like I am psychic, more like this is just a collection of weird experiences that I am imagining and I am going mad. Plus I don’t do great on the online testing at guessing things.

      Dolores,

      I am not going to be able to sleep without commenting on this properly. While I can spend a lot of time responding to your post I will refrain from most of what i want to say.

      I will say that it is very helpful to me.

      I have had a few popping light bulbs but only after a rare conversation with my father.

      I have had some strange text experiences … on two occasions after watching a TV show from the UK I received a text with random numbers from the UK. Another time while living in Texas I yearned to be back in my home state of West Virginia and for months, on random occasions, I would receive calls and texts (all wrong numbers) from that State. It stopped after I returned.

      I have had some interesting (as Craig puts it) “flow” experiences involving my dead grandmother.

      I doubt you are imagining anything. Perhaps context and interpretation may be off. The truth is elusive and likely hard to believe. Western culture for thousands of years has really put a damper on what is generally accepted as possible. As a result, most people will not readily accept what is, in fact, happening to you.

      I am new to discussing this sort of thing but I have been dealing with it intensely for some time now.

        Hi José,

        Thank you for responding – I really appreciate it! Was sort of in shock that I posted all that. Probably good to addend a few things – like I am trying to live in the flow and while money is short now I am trying to think positively and even feng shui’ing my home right now. The thing is that what I need does tend to show up, which is great. So it’s been over ten years now since I’ve had a job with a ‘boss’ and still standing! Reading your post inspired me to write. I’ve had that experience of mind reading my singing partner on the frustrated, joking request of our coach and did it perfectly – she said she’d never seen anyone do that in her life, a career spanning a few decades, and I am pretty sure she was serious, but it seemed natural to do it. I just sort of intuited what he would do or something,., Music is just a hobby but I feel like I can use it to raise my vibration and that makes me feel really good, in terms of countering things when feeling down, like say after listening to the news on NPR. I feel at this point I need it to exist.

        Hope you are having a great weekend!

          I never tried this before but I think it will help you. No need to reply.

          You do not need “feng shui” it is not for you. You need to arrange your home in accordance to your energy exclusively … or you will not find the balance you need. Avoid sleeping with your head next to the window unless you want to be even more sensitive to the intangible.

          NPR is very positive for you.

          Since there is not another way for you to make viable money other than your current job you must endure it. There is a preverbal “light” at the end of that tunnel.

          Most people can’t help it … being judgmental does not suit you.

          If any if this seems inconsiderate … know that I care right now.

      Dolores, im so glad you posted here, you have hit on so many things that I am all to familiar with like malfunctioning electronics. I have replaced my phone 3 times in the last 2 yrs thinking there was something wrong with them, the computers at work inevitably crash on me at the worst possible times, always when I am swamped with customers and extremely stressed out. No one else at work seems to have it happen to them. My boss thinks Im intentionally doing something to make them crash. Spirit seems to be attracted to me for some reason, I have always had strange things happen around the house , doors opening and slaming shut,shadow figures,footsteps up and down the hall, voices, knocking on walls or should I say beating on walls in empty rooms.my dog and cat both stand and growl at one particular chair in the living room with the fur on there backs raised.these things have went on in every home I have owned,thank goodness my family has experienced these things as well or I would think I was insane ! I have even heared my grandmother call my name ,first and middle like she did when I was a child and had done something bad. My husband heard it as well. I have done evp recordings for the last few yrs and have got countless voices many of them class A recordings. I hate crowds of people. And have only had a couple of close friends in life, in high school I was shy and very quiet, my bestfriend called me invisible girl, she said I could blend in with a wall.Music is my great love as well, it works better than any antidepressant ive taken.I have always been a people pleaser as well,I hate confritation ! When you are a people pleaser you tend to take alot of abuse, people tend to mistake kindness for weakness or stupidity. I am 52 yrs old and have finally started standing up for myself I believe this is mainly due to menopause ! I have every trait listed above. Im mainly left handed but do a few things with my right. I have always been a night owl.i have been diagnosed as dyslexic and have A.D.H.D as well.In school I was always in trouble for day dreaming. As you can see we share many common traits.

    Craig, Sandy, thank you for your replies.

    Last night was the first time I ever outwardly mentioned anything about my experiences in my life without some kind of pretense. I am used to analyzing it to myself subjectively. That being stated, forgive me if my analysis is personally biased. All I ask is some sincere feedback because I am not sure what I want by discussing it. Which brings me to my first issue.

    1. Embodiment
    I am doing things more often now without premeditated thought. I do not even know why I do some of the things I do until days, weeks, and even months later. Only then I can understand the fruition of my actions.

    2. Active or Passive
    I mentioned that I pursued and earned a philosophy degree in an attempt to understand myself. I wrote that this effort was “to no avail”, but that is not true. Philosophy at its core is an attempt to understand the human condition and what I experience must be part of that. The self analysis I pursued leads me to believe that everyone is clairvoyant to a certain degree that in fact, interpersonal communication is not possible without it. In other words, when two individuals or more are talking there is more than words being exchanged that convey meaning. I am not referring to body language, although that is also part of communication.
    For me this phenomena is well beyond the subconscious and is firmly rooted into my conscious experience. I say Active or Passive because when I talk to someone I often see their demeanor change right before my eyes in correlation to my extrasensory subjective insights. I thought I was hurting people.
    So I ask … in your experience is clairvoyance an active or passive trait? Because to me it is extremely active and changes my material experience dramatically. I am concerned that it unknowingly changes other peoples lives. I know it effects my physiological state and I do not know how. Pain, temperature, pressure and other tactile experiences that would come across as “psychosomatic” are regular experiences for me. It is quite real and quite externally sourced.

    3. Threshold
    I am speaking out because I am under constant duress now with few moments of physical or mental peace. I have reached my threshold on maintaining my composure and I am concerned. I often suffer anxiety and insomnia. Sometimes my impressions are so intense, I become temporary blind. I think because my sense of sight is so dominant that my brain shuts it down to accommodate the other data. In these instances, I can also lose my balance and suffer other issues I am less inclined to discuss.
    I find that excessive alcohol temporarily suppresses my impressions but at the same time alcohol has proven to be very detrimental to my regular life so it is not an answer but only something I can use on occasion. Please … I am not suicidal. I am convinced that I will live a very long time.

    4. Interpretation
    Unlike my other senses, I have no reference or context for interpretation. In my youth I thought everyone had the same subjective experience. I did not know I was hyper sensitive to “this”. I was raised in the US so I speak English. I recall when I was a child, (five or so) my parents and other relatives would speak fluent Spanish and I would know exactly what they meant and I did not speak the language. I considered this very normal. Keep in mind at five, I did not have the life experience to understand the significance. But even at that age I would not mention it.
    Going into adulthood I still had no idea I had a different subjective experience than others. I would know things about people but did not have context to reference it. This started to make some interactions very awkward.
    I may be a bit insane now because of it. Neurologically speaking, I think I developed an abnormal coping mechanism in my mind. The constant attempt to rationalize in a conventional sense has made me eccentric and crazy. I am still cogent though. I am also still good at acting normal.
    I was a classical bass player. I used to play in an symphony orchestra. I remember playing everything exactly the way the conductor intended without much trouble. I would often get comments with regard to how receptive I was. I find this interesting to point out because in an orchestra, communication without words is essential. Now I find an orchestra experience very hard to handle. I am often overwhelmed and was forced to stop without explanation.
    I conceptually acknowledge instantly, every impression (for lack of a better word) I receive, but it is very tenuous. A lifetime of this has definitely stretched out my mind. Regardless, it usually takes days, even weeks, to digest the information into something I can communicate unless I try to do so abstractly or with metaphor.
    With people I do not know, it is much easier for me because my insights are mostly about intent and is very broad. I think that is just what I can interpret. I am sure I receive more than I can possibly process. Stuff relative to them that I cannot ever interpret. I never tried to communicate it with the intent to see if they can interpret it even though I cannot.
    With people I know, my insights can be scary. I suspect it has to do with the depth in which I know someone.
    Furthermore, it seems I force people to understand what I mean beyond what it natural for them. In this way, I think I am hurting people. It sometime seems like i am putting thoughts in people’s minds. I do not know for sure. I do not want to take advantage of anyone. I try to calm my thoughts before I engage in conversation.

    Enough for Now!!!!!
    I need to stop communicating this because I am starting to feel under duress again. I will say that I am a vegetarian now. I no longer eat or wear animals (leather). There is something about them that that is so much more than traditional anthropocentric treatment allows. Furthermore, I used to be very religious … no longer. At best I feel we are all connected in a pantheistic sense.

    There is much more I am refraining from mentioning. Perhaps I will feel up to it in the future.

    Very best,
    José Antonio Ramos

      Hi José,
      Ok, by the numbers:
      1. There is a name for that “flow.” It is acknowledged by mainstream psychology as a thing. It’s just your greater self putting the pieces together for you. No big deal for an empath like yourself. Just relax and let it happen. It doesn’t have to make sense.
      2. Good question. No one knows. I’m currently reading a book addressing that aspect of psi, but I haven’t finished it yet. Jim Carpenter’s “First Sight.”
      3. That’s that transition thing I was telling you about. You’re still half way getting out of the old belief system. It will get worse until it gets better. You can help it along by giving in to the spirituality as I previously described. Oh, and no one, least of all me, ever said it was easy.
      4. Welcome to The Club of the Misunderstood. People with strong psi are a very small population and generally don’t advertise it and like you, often don’t get connected with people who are like them due to scarcity and secrecy. Consequently, it’s hard to learn who you really are.

      Don’t worry too much about other people. They’re more resilient than you might think.

      That’s all I can think of right now. I hope it helps.

      Note … I realized that I do not become temporarily blind during these instances. After writing this post I started to isolate the experience. Turns out, my eyes work fine, I simply stop paying attention to what I am looking at … not blindness. It just seems like blindness

    For the last five years something that I have taken for granted my whole life is starting to manifest itself in an intensity that I have a hard time ignoring. I am 38 years old. Now … the impressions I receive every waking moment are are just too intense. They are almost as vivid as my conventional 5 senses and they affect the way I interpret everything … I can say this for certainty, when I look at pictures and especially videos, it literally changes my existential experience dramatically. If they are of people I know … it is beyond what I can take. Furthermore, when I interact with with people in person, the experience is beyond description. I have become withdrawn from social activities as a result. I live alone so I when I meet another person … it is, by contrast … obvious … what ever it is …

    I pursued and earned a philosophy degree to try to understand it to no avail.

    When I walk into a room, everything changes. People are starting to notice. Please help … I do not know where to look.

    Today it was bad … I drank a bottle of wine and decided to research the taboo .(in my universe) .. Clairvoyance … I was lead to this website.

    I will drive the 600 miles to Laurentian University, if I can find answers there.

    • craigweiler

      Hi José,
      First of all, scientists measure stuff and deal with evidence. You are dealing with meaning, so they won’t be able to help you. Many people come to them, but they have no answers for such questions.

      I’m going to put on my psychic hat and approach it from that angle. When I see you, I see a person who was holding back his natural perception, but cannot do it anymore. We change, and sometimes those changes are painful. This new ability to perceive is something you struggle with, so you have resisted assimilating it. You are afraid that you will lose control, and you will. The old you has to die (metaphorically speaking) for the new you to feel balanced and centered. To accelerate your progress you will need to you intention. Your intention should be as follows (or modified to better suit you if this is doesn’t feel right): “I grow accustomed to these new experiences and they become ordinary for me. I just get used to it and it’s no longer a big deal. I learn to pay attention to what these perceptions tell me; they are guiding me down a better path. I cannot be the person I once was. I have to let go.”

      Allow that you cannot instantly effect change for yourself. Be patient.

      Good luck,
      Craig

      Hi Jose,

      I’ve been to Laurentian University (twice, actually). It’s a nice place and Dr Michael Persinger is a smart man. But he doesn’t have all the answers. He does do research into psi phenomenon, which is great. I would certainly recommend reading his work. But he can’t help you to accept who you are or explain away your experiences for you.

      I’ve been down that same road. I wanted Dr Persinger to fix me or explain it all away. He couldn’t, but that’s OK. At least we did some interesting research together. What he did give me was the experience of being in an environment where it was not only OK to be psychic, it was awesome to be psychic.

      It was tough going back home after getting a taste of what it is like to be accepted for who you are. I could completely be myself in Dr Persinger’s lab, which was something I had never experienced before. But I still had to go home when the research was over..

      It took me long enough, but home is much better for me now. Things have changed. I might not share everything I experience, but I’m not afraid of people’s reactions to me the way I used to be. I’m more accepting of myself. It really is at home where you have to do all the work, not in a lab in Northern Ontario. You have to accept yourself before you will ever trust anyone else to do the same.

      Best of luck on your journey!

    Hello, I’m back =)

    I have been reading through your articles and comments for the past few days since I found this wonderful online group of people just like me! I knew I wasn’t alone, because my grandmother was well known in my family to have been a witch, broha (sic), it’s Spanish for witch. Some of the comments I connect with so well I have to check that it wasn’t I who wrote it, because it describes my life or emotions so closely. But I had no idea how, not alone, I am now, and it has given me new inspiration to believe in and develop my gift I had feared so long. As a private catholic school student for 7 years it was ingrained into my mind that psychics were created by the “devil”.

    Well my actual question is: Do some sensitives have a high IQ, but do poorly in school?

    • craigweiler
      June 21, 2013

      In answer to your question: it’s complicated, but yes, sometimes. The reason is that schools reward linear logical thinking and they operate in a highly structured atmosphere that is boring and very difficult for creative people who require a lot less structured environment to perform at their best.

    if u don’t want to feal others feelings/emotions I found it best to put headphones on and sing in my head to my favorite music I do this most crowded areas it really seems to take my focus away and clear my mind also I know its not legal in most states and to each person has different affects but I smoke marijuana and that above all clears my head helps me smile and relax . I actually feal normal and not all that “high” and yes its good medical lol I know all this can be stressfull but also u can try breathing big deep breathes or shallow this is what I found that helps me I hope if can help u as well

      Good headphone tip. I’m not a pot smoker myself, but I don’t object to adults doing it.

      Kids should not smoke pot because it causes developmental problems.

    Very interesting post, thank you! I would just like to list some things for comparisons:

    I can’t see spirits/ghosts (but I don’t want to. Well, I have seen 2, but that’s all),but I can; generally tell what another person is thinking and feeling, even from a distance if I focus on their ‘energy/feel'; predict future events (only ones that affect me personally, no global events etc, unless they affect me)(and this is usually a trial and error thing i.e. I get a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ feeling, and then think about different things/areas of my life until one ‘pops’ and that narrows it down, and so forth); ask for things and receive them (money, finding lost items, help etc); when I was younger I used to ‘take on’ other people’s feelings, and think they were my own, but now I am able to keep their feelings out (unless I get distracted or they are VERY strong); there is other stuff also.

    Some traits I have; I don’t like people much; I need to be around nature a lot, and it also helps me to de-stress; sometimes experience time differently to other people (even those in the same room); I see lights all the time; feel aloof; I can bounce back easily and do not feel ‘down’ for very long (this is opposite to what others on this site express); have lucid dreams; have had an OBE when I was about 5; always avoid confrontations; I can sense other peoples abilities (for instance I have friends who I found out can read minds, feel energy, etc, and when I am around them, those abilities that they have are highlighted in myself); am very hypersexual (and female), and have been since I was a child; have dyscalculia; very artistic; can do most things with left or right hand ;I can’t handle crowds; get bored easily; have a high pain tolerance; avoid drugs and alcohol (except when I was a teenager).

    Some traits I do not have; migraines; headaches; tinnitus (only very occasionally); PMS or PMT or anything negative menstrual-related; the anxiety disappears when you learn how to block others emotions and when you learn listen to it..sometimes it is other peoples ‘stuff and sometimes it is ‘predictions’.

    I have found that I feel more emotionally stable, less depressed, and just generally happier and joyful as an adult, and I believe that it is because I have done a lot of emotional and spiritual work on myself over the years, and accepted that I am different from most people. I feel that doing this can also help others who are still in the stages of depression or anxiety. I would like to say to anyone who is feeling distressed or uncomfortable about their abilities or psychic experiences that it is okay to feel/be different, you are not imagining things, nothing can hurt you unless you give it permission (so don’t!). But most of all, I want to say, have fun with your psychicness and control it rather than letting it control you.

    (P.S. I do not wish to offend anyone by what I have written, and all of these things are only from my view point- if yours differs that is okay and I do not wish to negate you).

    I do have a high tolerance to pain but always wondered why Percodan doesn’t effect me and why pain killers generally make me feel nauseous and don’t take away the pain. It seems the more I read on your blog, the more I’m understanding myself.

    • craigweiler
      May 26, 2013

      Yup. One of the great problems that highly sensitive/psychic people face is the lack of understanding that our physiology is slightly different and that this causes changes in how we deal with chemicals.

    It’s so weird how totally accurate the part about careers is. Here I am, thinking there is something wrong with me for being so flaky about what career I want to go into and knowing I wouldn’t prefer doing the same thing for about 35 years. Is it also a tendency for psychics to overthink things? Sure seems like it would be.

    • craigweiler
      May 23, 2013

      I think if you’re headed in the wrong direction you’re going to find yourself thinking too much, but if you’re headed in the right direction, you’ll kind of know it. The best thing is to make your intent clear that you want the RIGHT career for you, practice having this intent and then let go of it for awhile and let things work themselves out.

      Jacklyn, I too have had this ability my whole life and try to avoid it as much as possible, but it won’t stop. I will tell you the reason,even though it may be hard for you to believe [ but, its the truth ]. Many of us cannot help being this way and satan knows it. He uses it against us if we let him. Your trying to stop it and me too, but things keep happening…that’s because he doesn’t want us to stop it. He can use it against us. Why? Because many of us just accept the fact we have these abilities and use them without looking at the source. What I have learned is to do as God has said…ask ourselves if this is of God or satan. Satan can lie and tell the truth. God is the only answer to keeping satan away. If God wants us to know something He will send an angel to let us know [ this has happened to me more than once ], but even then we have to sort out quickly, is this of God or satan. The way to do that is to be close to God, get to know him, etc.

    Hi there. You might want to research the possible part the endocrine system, especially the adrenal glands, plays in psychic ability (and also in the ill-health, physical and mental, so often suffered by sensitives). It’s a fairly new area of study, and significant connections are just being made, but if the seat of psychic ability is found to be withing the physiology, i.e. the brain and hormone system, as I’ve always thought it would be someday, then it explains why psychic sensitivity runs in families, and why it sometimes is acquired after serious stress and trauma

    Hi again, and thank you for the great blogging, I’m slowly working my way through them all, and find myself nodding as I read. I
    very much appreciate your clear and efficient style of writing, thank you again.

    I’m not really sure (I actually do know, but it is such a strange gift that I shy away from owning it)…I’m really struggling to type it, that’s how uncomfortable it makes me…
    I don’t know if it has a particular name/title, but I “dream rescue”, for lack of a better term.
    I’ll be in my normal dream state, then suddenly like a changing of channel I am in a completely different setting, and know no one or anything. Being a part in someone else’s dream. It is their story and the role I usually play is as a friend (even though we’ve not met in “real life. I can not have any influence over what is happening, unless they ask me what they should do. And if they don’t ask for help, I am just there for company, and in some nightmarish theme, there so they don’t die alone.

    I’ve been in and out of counselling for many years since i was 8, I’m in my late 30’s now. So I can confidently say I can do dream interpretations easily and accurately, symbolism comes very easy to me. And I “Know” these are not my dreams.

    When thinking back on the dreams, there is a knowing connected to the person who’s dream I’d been in (past life? soul/spirit family? a familiar voice in the collective consciousness? ~shrugs~ who knows)
    I think it is the strong emotions that call me to them.

    Sorry Craig, but I am looking for some validation that I’m not imaging it. Even though I know it’s real.
    Sorry again, and thank you for your time.

We sense bad energy, have spiritual dreams and connections with living and dead people, sense when something bad is going to happen etc. I always had it since I was a child and I knew it was real and I was different. I want to develop this gift further. If anyone has suggestions of reading materials or ways to get in better tune with these traits please let me know.

    This does discribe me for the most part ,accept I seem to relish verbal confrontation in that I like to discuss and or debate things. I’m strong willed ,and very opionated,but if you can prove me wrong with evidence then I will go along. My temper cause some caustic verbal confrontations . These ventures usually depress me or are on my mind for some time. Of course some other experts ( personallity disorder analists ) will say these traits are strickly from chidhood experiancs, rearing practices etc. Very keen to being disrespected

      There is an answer I’ve found for all being a “sensitive”. In my 30s now I’ve realized I have these amazing gifts I’ve been using all of my life without KNOWING it. Now with intention I use the and don’t suffer anymore. I’m able to shut out everyone’s else’s feelings and only feel my own unless it’s for a greater purpose and my guides tell me when it belongs to someone else. I earlier on in life thought I was nuttier then a fruitcake;0) Now I know what I am, very sensitive/empathic. I feel free and happy for the first time since early child hood with my “imaginary friends”. I’d been misunderstood for YEARS. Now life is fantastic!!

    I just think you should know my impressions. I just spent around 5 hours or more reading your blogs.
    I just survived a near death experience and my mind is expanding rapidly.
    I found your story of animal psi touching and incredible and was blowen away; bring tears to my eyes.
    I found the story of plants psi and the inter connection of everything inspiring. inter-special communication gave me chills. My partner and I were blowen away by that alone.
    The talk about consciousness inspiring and absolutely true. And I appreciated your writing style too ^^

    how ever – I found your discussion about types of psychics not only contradicting to the previous touching consciousness awakening blog but also extremely excluding to any one who would be “normal”. I dont understand how such a detailed and in my case excluding and diss heartening description of “who is psychic or can be” even exists? Majority of psychics per character type by the looks of things, would not understand what their going through, or have the confidence to come forward. I E existing studdies may not be entirely correct and im sure the deepest psychics on earth probably are not on line, making money off the industry or partaking in studdies.

    more to the point is on one side you explain honing your psychic ability is about your consciousness and sensitive awearness and ability to silence and flow; and on the other side you explain Its scientifically linked to your brain; your predetermined path, genetics and social flaws.

    But basicly what it boiled down to for me is; if you have certain attributes it means this part of your brain is ‘worked’ and you will have strong psychic gift; based off current studdies – but what I hope you grasp is what linda rampey was talking about with time manipulation and the understanding that through time manipulation im sure any one can enhance that muscle putting true psychic strength at any ones fingers. because when we slide within plains, manipulate time as we comprehend then we advance far beyond any ‘earthly’ study.

    I’d like to say a bit more about the sanity thing, as far as it relates to myself. I don’t think I explained it very well in my comment above. Well, for a long time I’ve had fears that I am already insane, or that I will go insane eventually, or that other people think I’m insane, or that other people think I will go insane eventually. I don’t really dwell on this very much, but it’s there. I’m grateful that I’ve somehow managed to face this pretty well all these years, but it’s not exactly totally gone (if that makes sense?). Also, I grew up in the AA/Al-Anon/Alateen program, and while I do see some problems with the program, I think overall it’s a very good one, and it helped me to focus on my own psychological health from a very young age. (I forgot to mention that my dad was a recovering alcoholic.:. Not anymore, though, long story!)

    Hmm, where was I going with this? I have too much to say! It’s just, I wonder if my fears of going insane sort of made me stifle my psychic abilities a bit? I’ve been pondering that possibility. I remember as a small child, not sure exactly what age, sort of “putting it out there” that I “didn’t want to see things”. I don’t even know if I used to “see things”, but maybe so, and maybe it scared me because of what was happening to my mom? I don’t really know.

    I really see myself as just mildly psychic, like I said earlier, and maybe I’ll share my experiences elsewhere on this blog, but I’ll just say a little bit now. Basically, I have dreams that come true in some way, but not very often at all. Whenever it happens, the evidence is right there in front of me, which I suppose I’m grateful for because some other kinds of psychic phenomena seem that they would make a person question the reality of what happened much more (ack, does that make sense?). Also, synchronicities seem to happen with me an awful lot, but maybe they happen just as much with everyone and I just happen to notice them? I don’t know. Also, I just seem to be very intuitive in general, as far as understanding myself, other people, animals, etc… but I don’t have the sorts of fantastical experiences that I see described on this blog, except for a very little bit.

    I’d also like to mention that I’ve done a good bit of reading about archetypes, and I especially like a few books I’ve read that describe the archetypes in terms of Greek gods and goddesses. Any psychic person might want to consider reading up on the Persephone archetype. My reading on that archetype helped me tremendously, even though I consider myslef to be just mildly psychic. (Maybe I’ll get into it another time.) For me, it’s really helped to balance that archetype with some of the other archetypes, to sort of keep myself grounded. What I do for a living is especially helpful, I believe. (My significant other and I are self employed potters, and we are also renovating a house.)

    I’ll stop again, but I’m sure I’ll have more to say another time. I hope this is helpful to someone out there. No pressure to respond, Craig… I see your plate is very full! It really helps me to write about this stuff, and to know that people might read it, too. :^D

    Thank you so much for this blog, Craig! I have so much I’d like to say in response (for you, and for anyone else who is reading), that I really don’t know where to begin… so I guess I’ll just do a stream-of-consciousness thing here… :^D

    Oh, before I really begin, I have to say I think it’s terrible that a bunch of people downgraded your posts and some of the comments! I’ve been putting in my five star ratings to try to counteract that a bit, and I hope others will do the same if they feel it’s right. I’ll probably get around to giving out some positive ratings to the comments, too. By the way, do the low ratings make it so your blog doesn’t show up as high on google searches? I certainly wouldn’t want that to happen, since your blog is so helpful to so many people.

    Anyway… a bit about myself… I feel sort of silly posting here at all, since I seem to be only very mildly psychic, but then I do relate to so much of what you’ve written here. I’ve known for quite a while now that I’m an HSP/highly sensitive person (since my mid 20s I believe… I’m now 39), and that knowledge has helped me tremendously. (Making HSP friends online has been wonderful, too.) It doesn’t seem that most of them are what you’d call psychic, though. Perhaps all psychics are HSP, but not all HSPs are psychic? I don’t really know.

    Boy, I’m having a hard time here because I’ve read so many of your posts and have so much to say in response… Haha, I have to remember that I don’t need to cover it all right now. :^D

    I am especially glad that you write about the fear of other people thinking you’re crazy, as well as the fear of actually being crazy. My mom was institutionalized for mental illness when I was five and a half years old, and so as you may be able to imagine, I have a fear of losing my sanity (while also feeling so much sadness and compassion for my mom and others like her). Once I hit my late 20s, though, this fear started diminishing greatly, since I realized that it was becoming less and less likely that I’d lose my sanity (according to statistics). Still, I’m sure the fear is still there a bit, and it helps so much to read your blog because I realize I’m not alone in this regard.

    Okay, I’ll just mention a few more things for now, and then I’ll comment on various posts of yours down the road. Oh, I think it’s intriguing that apparently a lot of psychics have multiple pets… I have six cats, a dog, and four chickens, so I do fit that characteristic. Any idea of why this is a common thing? Maybe you already gave your opinion on that… I’ll have a look once I’m finished with this. Also, over on your post about the physiology of psychics, you mention that a lot of us have allergy/sinus problems, which I do (but just mildly). And I also have low blood pressure, but just at the low end of normal I believe. How interesting that we tend to have certain physiological traits in common! By the way, I’m not left handed, but I do believe I’m more ambidextrous than most people are.

    But I will stop for now. :^D Thank you again, Craig! I’m so grateful that you have decided to help people in this way, and your posts are such a joy to read. I’ll keep on reading, and you’ll definitely be hearing from me in the comments. Take care!

    Hello, my daughter, now 19, has begun to have panic attacks. She was diagnosed with ADD in 5th grade, and while she doesn’t like how the medication makes her feel, she is reliant on it to study for long hours in college. She was tested for dyslexia, but we found that her difficulties were in math more so than with reading or writing. She has always been hypersensitive, emotional, and very sympathetic. She is left handed, has an amazing ear for music (she has taught herseft to play several instruments) and is is profoundly loyal and honest. She recently saw the color blue “weeping” off from a fellow classmate, someone whom she had never met before. When she was a child, she saw angels all around her, and found comfort in them. She has always been more comfortable among older people, and often finds herself disappointed in people her own age. We are extremely close, and I feel her fear when she experiences the overwhelming drowning feelings of a panic attack. She has saught help from the psychology department at her college, but I wonder if there would be better counseling for her. I should also mention that my mother is psychically sensitive. I am not so sure about myself. I saw things around me as a kid, and have strong feelings of having been here before but as someone completely different.

    My question to you is what might be a more helpful form of counseling for her. I see her sensitivity as a gift, but I don’t want it to be painful for her.
    Thank you.

I have been suffering with anxiety for a long time now and i would like to know how can i determine if i am psychic for sure? Or just emotional and anxious. Please help. I sometimes think I’m loosing my mind. And i feel bad for my family because of my anxiety there are a lot of things we do not do because i cant be around large crowds.

    I have always been very sensitive to everything.. for the past two years, i have been seeing a little girl around, and i have no idea who she is. She randomly appears, sometimes just to watch me, and she jist stands there. I have been too afraid to try and talk or comunicate. And also, i can always feel what everyone feels, all the time. I can sometimes read anyones mind. Is that psychic, or simply stupid?

      Your descriptions of what you experience aren’t as far out there as you might think. I don’t see faces either and I’ve also experienced the more-than-one-path feeling.

      I don’t feel the presence of others around me, but other psychic people do. Spirits hanging around and doing good isn’t all that unusual either. Among psychic people, I think that you fit right in.

How do u explain it when it fit into certian category. Will I look like a fool to explore and open up more. Most important were do you find real people to advise others without all the fanfare.

My Son has the same dreams on the same night sometimes ( passed partner / stepdad) and it worries me as I haven’t handled this ‘gift’ too well..!

    Before I read your site (Been here for 4hours). I’d never write this stuff as I know how crazy it sounds …. Ps, have read Tarot I got as prezzy from my sis and its always spookily accurate for the 3rd party.. pps She is an artist I am an actor… The arts play a big roll in our lives..

    I care greatly for everyone and call my soft heart “my Achilles Heel” and have hated my weakness but known also that was what drew people to me and my strength.
    I question my sanity and others motives daily but have faith that it will all be ok ‘somehow’ …

    Hi, I know most of the other people commenting are older than me and probably know a lot more about what they are saying. I don’t mean to disrespect anyone if what I’m saying is just stupid and just related to being a teenager. But I’m 16, when I was younger they thought I was border line dyslexic though later with extra lessons and stuff they told me I grew out of it. I suffer from migranes and I have panic attacks, I only get them now when I’m upset but they started when I was 13 so i have a general axiety disorder. I feel like I feel people’s pain sometimes, I get ‘vibes’ off people (excuse the cliche). When I say vibes I mean it feels like I can feel them, their essence, either personality, their traits. I’m normally pretty accurate. I can feel my best friend very strongly, I know when he’s upset or distressed, sometime I see it in dreams and sometimes I just know. I feel really close to my granddad who died when I was two, I feel like I know him so well but yet how can I of I was two when he died? It upsets me because I feel false in my knowing of him. My best friend thinks I could see him if I tried but I’m too scared to fail, I don’t know if that’s true or even if I can feel him now. Maybe it’s just all in my head. I know psychics tend to be sensitive, and with some thing I am, animals always, certain people…but in also very judgmental and manipulative. Ive very guarded against people, and other than my bestfriend i cant honestly say i can spend much time with anyone for a prolonged length of time with out getting frustrated, angry or down. Because I know how people work I guess I know how to pull their strings, most of the time I try use that to help people, to help them with the pain I feel. I don’t know if all this is in my head, it’s not out of character for my mind to run away with me. I’m quite creative I write and draw a lot but sometimes it’s easy to get lost it all. I guess I just need an outsiders perspective. If anyone could just tell me if this makes sense to them. If I’m just saying something that’s totally irellavent then please just be brutally honest. Please if anyone has a little insight, I’ve tried to reach out to people before about this stuff on Wiccan websites and no one has given me any help. Please just be honest with me. Charlie.

      Hi Charlie,
      The feelings you’re describing about people are typical of highly sensitive people with psychic ability. Migraines, panic attacks, anxiety disorder and such are all typical ailments of sensitive people. You’re not alone.

      Judging by what you’ve described, you have a fairly rare personality type, which can be quite stressful because you’re different in so many ways, but you’re not sure exactly why. I can’t go into all the reasons here, but let me just say that there are good scientific reasons for why you are the way you are. It’s not a bad thing, you’re just different.

      You can meet other people who share many of your experiences at the INFJ forum.

      Hello, I am in my thirties and i just read your paragraph. It felt like i was reading my own bio. So, no you are not alone. This is the first time anyone has listed all my quirks (that’s what i call them). I have a hard time being close to people because I feel to much, almost in an itchy way. I have struggled with anxiety and depression most my life, i am not sure if you are the same there. But it got worse after i had my two kids. I am on medication but i am often sleepy. I am tired a lot, but my dreams are vivid and in color. sometimes i see stuff that i am compelled to tell the one it is about. this usually is a good thing and i always feel better afterwards no matter how off the wall it is. the closer i am to someone the more i get off them. So i hope this helps. I have recently found communing with nature ie pagan rituals, have helped me connect and ground myself so that i am not walking wide open for everyone’s vibe to break in. It has helped with my energy level and depression.

        What pagan rituals have you practiced? I have recently obtained all my memories which my alter ego has kept from me till this month when I became mature enough to understand what I can do. So for the passed year my family has witnessed me move things with my mind or predict what happens months later on tvshows/realityTV in a trance like mode & seconds after doing such things I have no recollection of them. I can do other things but I won’t get into that.. All this time my alter ego instructed my family to not mention it to me, my core personality of what I can do. Clairaudiesence, Clairvoyance, &Clairsensing are all that I have tapped into so far.

    Don’t know if the words “Thank you”, is enough. It was like looking in a mirror when reading your blog and all the information. Surpressing the Truth with ignorance of not understanding why you don’t fit in the world and with others and then being made to feel like such a terrible person can weigh so heavily on you that for me…? I almost didn’t recover. Too far gone….until God came to rescue me. In the last 7 years Jesus and our Heavenly Father has restored my mind, healed my emotions and restored me anew with the power of His Love. God gave me much understanding of how good and evil works and the realm we stand in, His Light that with our awakened state truly live in the reality of Truth. It is hard, grievous and many days filled with sadness that can take your breath away…if you let it. But God has led me to your site for more revealed truth to help me cope and not have the weight of the world and it’s burdens on my shoulders thinking it’s my job to fix it because I see it and feel it and do love and care so much and thinking it’s my responsibility becasue of understanding so much darkness. Change is a must for me….the world around me has to be moving and grooving forward in a way better…..It is my hearts desire. God is teaching me to focus more on me and make my boundaries smaller within my mind and guard myself better in what I see and feel. It’s too much for me to handle now in my life of what I have been given in my enlightened mind. But I will never give up in fighting darkness in being in the world that wants to keep my light away from people. I can’t tell you the battles I fight spiritual, it too much. But I will tell you this….It is possible, to walk in Heaven on earth in the fullness of Joy, love and peace from above, not as the world gives but from above never moving out of it, and have nothing around you ever bother you again…..NOTHING, and that my friend, is walking as Jesus did in His authority and ruling and reining as He did to make this world a better place with just a spoken word…..Everything has to line up around you when standing in the light of Truth, it is the trials that come when your presence is around, that you fight to just stand and endure, while God raises up a standard. Yes, we do fight darkness with just standing in this light of Truth in a realm that most never seen in the unseen…..
    I am still working on standing strong, and I will never give up trying to introduce our world into the darkness, never, while enduring persecution! God Bless you ! Praise God for you, and I love you in Christ Jesus! If you ever want to talk, I would love to share all the knowledge and understanding that God has given me, if it will help you or anyone else….I can’t tell you the joy, love and peace I have…Still will always have struggles, it comes with the territory, but to better understand, makes all the difference in having and keeping my peace.

    Hi Craig,

    I’m one of the fortunate few who have gotten the opportunity to visit Dr Michael Persinger’s lab at Laurentian University. I was tested for environmental sensitivity and they considered various things that differentiated me from a “normal” person. The work he did with me hasn’t been published yet, but he has published work on Ingo Swan and Sean Harribance.

    In my case, I don’t have a normal EEG. I’m so sensitive to environmental influences that I have to be placed in an electromagnetically shielded room for about 10-15 minutes in order to produce a normal looking EEG.

    I haven’t seen the results of all the testing yet. They did consider things such as handedness. (I was given a number of standard cognitive functioning tests). I was told that the EEG tests suggested that my brain functions in a very unique way. I’ve been to Dr Persinger’s lab twice so far and another visit seems likely. So someone is actively researching this topic.

    BTW, I’m enjoying your blog!

    It’s an awesome article. From personal experience, though, something you didn’t know–PMS is essentially THE psi-booster. Also, instead of dyslexia, people can wind up with dyscalculia, which is essentially math dyslexia. But on the upside, you can also sense patterns in people’s behavior which I DO NOT espouse using to get shiny new computer games (much). ;p

    Do you think that psychic people, that are born with their abilities, are more alien than human genetically? We have had our DNA tinkered with millions of years ago in order to speed up the process of our evolution, so it would make sense if a few strains of DNA would have more alien DNA than human in the mix. My father when he was little saw a Zeta (Grey) in his room. He got up to try to speak to him, but the Zeta panicked and ran through a wall! My grandmother told my dad and I that when she was pregnant that she does not remember a few nights of being awake. My grandmother and father are both extremely psychic and so am I. Ever since I was little, I have felt that I was more alien than human. We all have child like faces even though my grandmother is 67, my father is 46, and I am 25. I somehow gained the knowledge that most of the alien species of this universe are ancient. Most of the different kinds of beings in this universe are a few centuries old. I doubt we’ll live that long, but I noticed with other psychic people that I have befriended that they look unusually young for their ages as well. What is your opinion on this??? Thank you very much for your reply. :)

    I would definitely have to agree about the hypersexuality part. I can literally have intercourse 4 to 5 times a day if I pushed myself, ever since I was a young man.

    Hi!
    I’m a college student and have been aware of my ability for 6 years now. I have many friends with gifts and we work very well together, but we’re a bit confused about one thing, though. One of our professors–he’s really more of a friend to most of us and really a father to me–is a very very strongly gifted individual. I can sense gifts, both conscious and subconscious, and I have never come across anything like his. The worst part is, he is extremely disciplined both physically and mentally (3rd degree blackbelt if I remember correctly as well as just all around strong-willed) and uses his gift frequently. The issue arises because he is a skeptic and a scientist. And stubborn as anything. I love him dearly and we have a very strong link between the two of us (I can sense his emotions when he’s in Texas and I’m in Ohio), but I want to try to help him. Any advice?

      Hi Marisha,
      To understand this, you’ll have to know the difference between a logical viewpoint and an emotional one. You can identify a logical viewpoint because it will change based on new information. (i.e. “That restaurant was bad, but they’ve improved.”) An emotional viewpoint on the other hand, will not easily change despite new information. (Just because the ice caps are melting doesn’t mean it’s caused by global warming. Al Gore can kiss my ass.) The insult is a dead giveaway.

      My experience with most psi skepticism is that it falls in the latter category. It is an emotional viewpoint even though it is wrapped in the pretty package of rationalism. Skepticism towards psi is not just an ordinary idea that can change. A materialistic viewpoint is comforting and safe for people who feel drawn to authority and structure. To embrace the concept of psi is to toss that all out, so people aren’t going to do that easily.

      I don’t think you can change his mind on this and you’re probably better off not trying. If you must though, keep it to an impersonal discussion of the evidence for psi. Challenge him to come up with more than just arguments.

      Here’s a website that can help with this:

        Hello!!!
        First off, thank you very much for your prompt reply. After reading both your reply and the treatise, I have noticed a few patterns in “skepticism” which I’m sure you have already discerned. The type of skeptic that you are thinking I am dealing with (the type I normally encounter) is a person whose denial is rooted in fear rather than science; someone who is focused on their view of the world to the exclusion of all others–what the treatise refers to as a pseudoskeptic. I generally have little use for these people… I don’t tend to like them much.
        After consideration of the nature of the person in question in my situation as well as a bit of… I suppose it would be considered superficial subconscious examination of his mind–I have come to the conclusion that his skepticism is not, thankfully, based in fear, but rather in plain ignorance. Despite his stubbornness and general practicality, within him there is a certain desire to have mysteries in the world and I hope that I can, with great diplomacy, appeal to both that and his rational, scientific side (he’s a physicist… I don’t quite understand why, especially because he has a plethora of other talents…. but to each his own) in my attempts to convince him of both his gift and those of his students (there’s several of us…. And I keep finding more). The article was very useful in coming to my decision and I have sent it to a few of my friends as well.

          Hi Marisha,
          I happened to be at my desk when your reply came through. I have a couple of things to add based on your reply. First, you won’t really know what type of skeptic this gentleman is until you engage him. People can be very reasonable on other subjects but be very stubborn about accepting any evidence for psi. I’m reading about this right now. It’s a complicated sociological issue. (ref: The Trickster and the Paranormal by George Hansen.)

          Second, acceptance of psi may very well threaten his status and his job. Physics is an extremely conservative field. (ref: The Trouble with Physics by Lee Smolin.)

          As I said, keep the discussion on a philosophical level.
          Sincerely,
          Craig

      The best way to handle it is to realize that you don’t know and leave it at that. You don’t have to decide one way or the other. It can just be something where you don’t have enough information to decide.

    Thank you for your blog. It’s from a refreshing perspective and is helpful. I feel like I identify with the HS persona but I don’t know if I am truly sensitive to how others feel.I always feel aloof even though I don’t have any trouble fitting in. I’m wondering, do you have any idea how to measure one’s pain threshold?
    Thank you

      Sorry for the slow reply. Hospitals fill a bowl with ice and measure how long a person can keep their hand in it. I don’t know exactly how long that’s supposed to be. Generally, they turn it into a contest to encourage people to hold out as long as they can.

      And feeling aloof is normal for us, but it’s not particularly good for us. It means that you’ve shut down quite a bit. That’s how you can fit in. The trouble with feeling is that you don’t get to choose what to feel.

    Thank-you for your speedy reply. I know a great chiropractor and will ad him to my to-do list of health-helping appointments.

    I will stay in touch. You may email me privately if you wish.

    My regards,

    Thank-you for these articles and references. I’ve finally found a counselor who is also psychic and we are working through my “issues” from the angle of “but you’re psychic, and most psychics have these issues”. I’m 49 and have just realized that the depression and anxiety I’ve suffered most of my life is in great part due to this sensitivity and my inability to slough-off tribulations the way others can. Thank God I’ve married someone who is supportive in every way, and was the first person to say, “I’ll bet this is because you’re psychic”. Jeez – I could have had a V8!

    I also suffer from migraines, which I’m dealing with from an energetic basis, meaning acupuncture. I have tinnitus at a level that makes it hard to be human sometimes. I’ve not been able to read a book for years because of it. Hypnosis works very well for me, and I’m looking forward to acupuncture.

    I’m new to your site, and as I’ve not looked around carefully, would you mind me asking if you have a page here which has an extensive questionnaire for your psychic readers to fill out? I’d love to see a chart on how the data compares. If this request is redundant, please point in the direction to go.

    Thank-you again,

    Lin

      One of the things I’ve learned about doing a psychic blog is not to be surprised when people are psychic. In point of fact, I have decided to do just such a questionnaire, but have not yet taken action on it. And I do intend for it to be extensive. One of the things I have to address is finding a significant number of questions where the answers are known and that are already part of psychological literature. It’s all very well and good to have a bunch of interesting questions, but I think it’s more important to know whether we all have the same personality type and how we stack up against the general population.

      Regarding your migraines and tinnitus: I don’t know if you’ve tried chiropractic, but it’s worth checking out. Getting bones in your neck and back in alignment can help considerably. My chiropractor uses electrostimulation as part of the package. This seems to be very helpful.

      Please stay in touch. It seems to be important, but I’m not sure why yet.

        I was wondering if you have been looking into how psychics see/live in time?

          Hi Linda,
          I have not looked into this and I know of no research into this area. Actual research into the personalities and lives of psychic people is non existent. The only research on the subjective experience of time that I know of is that time slows down for us as our body temperature rises. When you’re running a fever, time seems slower.

          My personal experience, which is probably normal is this: The more closed down I am, the faster time appears to go. The more opened up I am, the slower it appears to go. As psychic people are generally more aware of other people and their environments than is ordinary, time probably subjectively passes more slowly for us.

          My theory of consciousness predicts that when we are accessing psychic information, our consciousness momentarily steps outside of time altogether. Time will be moving for our bodies, but we have directed our attention to a deeper reality where time has no meaning.

          I hope that information is helpful in some way.

          Craig

            Yes, this is what I believe I experience. Carrying it on a bit further, I’ve been thinking that I sometimes simultaneously experience the various layers of time, as it were. It’s only been lately that I’ve become conscious of this, and am still pondering the “craziness” of such thoughts on my part. I do know that we are able to slow/change/expand time, often at will. I was just wondering if you’ve had thoughts on this subject – and I’m grateful that you have, because this is one subject which sounds completely insane to me when I hear myself talking about it.

              I did a post on consciousness today, and part of that is that consciousness is quantum in nature and will bypass our macro reality and behave as though it didn’t exist. If that’s the case, then it would be entirely possible for you to experience layers of time.

          Hello, I can tell you my perspective on time. I have, basically, no sense of time. I rarely know what day it is, I can look at a clock three or four times in a row because I don’t exactly pay attention to the time I see. I have short term memory issues because I live in the moment and things that happened two or three hours ago don’t matter anymore (if it’s not important, obviously) and when I wake up in the morning I don’t really care what happened yesterday because, well, it was yesterday and it already happened and here we are in the present. I get anxious when things are planned out in advance because what if something changes or I suddenly don’t feel like acting on the plan or whatever. If you ask me to hang out in two days I might cancel in the last minute but if you asked me to hang out right now I’d be more likely to act on the invite of the moment. I cried on my 15th birthday because I felt like my life was a clock, and presumably I’ll live to be 60 and in theory my life was already a quarter over. I feel like using time isn’t for me because when you look at a clock, it counts up, but I see it as a means of counting down.I operate on my feelings. I dress according to my feelings. I sleep when I’m tired, eat when I’m hungry, drink when I’m thirsty etc. Time is relative.
