Questions on being Psychic...

I know, in my experience, that I'm not a psychic. I've come off as psychic to people before, but I don't identify with being a psychic at all. For me, I read people incredibly easily, I feel their energy, and I pay attention to what I mirror when I'm around them, and then I can put together things. It's scared multiple people in my life when I come out with an oddly specific question to their situation, and they have no idea how I got the information, but it's just obvious for me. 

Now on the other hand, I've started developing a really weird thing where when someone walks in with something going on, for example lung cancer, without knowing what is wrong, I will feel a pressure in my chest, or I pick up headaches from other people. It's very odd, and can be incredibly draining. Another thing that scared me originally was I feel pregnancies, the baby and the mother. I remember the first time I noticed it was when a teacher I knew suddenly "felt" different, her vibe was just different, and then I was asking myself "why" and all the sudden I got the urge to ask her if she was pregnant. Of course I didn't do it at the time, I thought I was going crazy and it can be really offensive to ask a woman if she's pregnant (especially if she's not)... but 3 weeks later she made an announcement that she was (and she hadn't been showing all that time). 

Does anyone else experience things like that? I still don't feel like I'm "psychic" but when I watch other people who identify as a psychic, it confuses me because I've picked up on some crazy things...

Clairvoyant- The ability to percieve things without the use of the 5 senses. Maybe you will like this word better. Perhaps you have a negative feeling about people who call themselves Psychic. People in my life who are not very empathic or pshychic make fun of me, have disbelief and mock my gifts. It's OK, they are scared and a little confused by it. I love them anyway and don't make a big deal of knowing everything I do.

@loconnoro:

Congrats on your skill. That sounds pretty strong in you. I do get some visions of future events and can sometimes tell when a person or animal is dealing with physical pain that they are trying to conceal (or tough out). But I don't tap into a person's story or future as you do. 

Many years ago my wife had a lady walk up and touch her pregnant stomach and tell her our baby would be a girl who loves music and dance. And we laughed it off at the time (we were non-believers back then). But the lady was right on with all details. I would say it is unnerving for most to interact with someone who can tell them their future. I think most of society is unable to handle that. And like I did, some may laugh it off thinking “that guy is a nut”.

I usually have pretty strong empath skills. And I can read people's energies pretty well. But I don't usually tell people what I know about them. I have to be picky as I think a lot of people can't handle this spiritual stuff. But I generally help those that ask and those that clearly need immediate help (someone distraught etc...). I’m sure others will differ with my view. But I would imagine with your clairvoyance you will also have to be picky with who you help unless you are 100% okay with people identifying you as a psychic. And there is good and bad to having that label in our society. But that said, definitely work your skill and see where it goes.

A couple of things I bet we can all do. First is pick up on pregnant women. The second is find lost things. 

Pregnant women stand out and glow, showing or not. I'm very attracted to them, but not in a sexual way. I see it as natures way of protecting them. They are very important to our survival. I haven't explored this with animals so much.

My wife always asks me where something she can't find is before she looks for it. This is more of a skill we can develop. The trick I've learned is not to actively search for it. It isn't something I do with my mind. I have to stop thinking about where it could be. In the past, I'd look for it until I got distracted and at that moment I would walk right to it. This is how I eventually figured out what was happening. It's much easier to find other people's things because I have no idea where it could be.  I'm teaching my daughter to do this, because she misplaces things all the time. It helps in a big way when things somehow end up in the trash and you don't want to go through all the trash to find it.

Theses are psychic skills by definition. It not just about visions and knowing. In all my treks deep into forests and exploring wilderness, I've never been lost. I couldn't tell you which way is north, but I always know which way to go.

@zacharias, I agree in finding things not by actively searching, but walking right to them. But I must say I am a hopeless case when it comes to directions. I am easily lost and have no sense of direction whatsoever.

I am not much of a fan of the word "psychic" too, but "empath" and "clairvoyant" works for me.

@eri-ameonna- If it makes you feel better, I get lost in the city all the time. I rely on GPS. It has something to do with all the other people around me. Some how they affect my sense of direction. I have to focus even if I've been there a hundred times before. My wife is a control freak that is constantly driving from the passenger seat. I'll miss turns and forget where I'm going with her in the car. I find it much easier just to take separate cars. In the woods I've never had that problem. 

The term psychic has earned some bad conentations. Most people don't like the word anymore. I would never claim to be psychic. What I don't get is why so many would rather just be mundane, and not want to believe in something extra ordinary.

I too have picked up on things that other people would not. It kind of gives me a heebie jeebie feeling when it happens to me. Every once in awhile I will get a very quick vision. Other times it is just a knowing. I have 2 incidents that stand out in my mind that this happened.

The first time, I was with my best friend and her family for a Christmas celebration. Her (slightly wild) uncle was leaving and I told him, "speed safely!" He kind of laughed and I told him, "no , seriously be very careful"  you see, I got a very quick "vison" of a car accident. He got into a very bad car accident on New Year's Eve night where he hit a tree and died. I felt horrible afterwards.

The second time, my cousin was excitedly telling me she had just found out she was pregnant. I said, "you are having twins!!" She told me to hush in a joking manor. Turns out she was pregnant with twins. I wasn't joking with her, it was just a knowing.

I have had other little things happen that made me question my ability. I wish I could get better at it. :)

I would love to be able to read others better. Or know when a thought comes about that it is not "my" thoughts but me feeling the other person. I question myself each time something happens. Wondering if I have a very vivid imagination or some awesome abilities that need tweeked. :)

All of the above. :)

My husband has a connection to a girl he works with. One I am not happy about.  I feel his guilt/crush feelings for her when he is around me. But I also get flashes of some of their conversations. I have freaked him out by bringing the conversations up (that I am not a part of. I am not there) But I wonder sometimes if it isn't my anger at the situation playing tricks or I am getting true feelings from his feelings. (this is a very short version glimpse of a certain situation)

@holly5757:

With practice you can open up your chakras a little to be more sensitive. The trick is opening them up just enough to be helpful. But if you open them up too much the feeling everything overload can be too much. 

A lot of people open up chakras through meditation. A short cut would be to use some crystals to help with that. For example, you may find lapis lazuli along with meditation as a way to strengthen your abilities. Here's some info. on that stone that I found online:

Lapis Lazuli Spiritual Energy


Lapis is one of the oldest spiritual stones known to man, used by healers, priests and royalty, for power, wisdom and to stimulate psychic abilities and inner vision. It represents universal truth. [Mella, 89-90]

Lapis quickly releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Placed over the third eye, Lapis expands awareness and conscious attunement to the intuitive self, stimulating enlightenment and enhancing dream work. It permits spiritual journeying, and tapping into personal and spiritual power. Lapis provides a connection with dream forces that are working to both guide and counsel during altered states. [Melody, 370][Hall, 172]

As a protection stone, Lapis Lazuli recognizes psychic attack and blocks it, returning the energy back to its source.

Not sure I can help you on that, though I can share some stuff IV encountered with couples that have queried from me, some of which are empathic too. 1)when Ur in connection with people and say for example people you see regularly, you not only begin to learn about them in a psychic/,internal level but those that are closely connected to them.. but bear in mind that's always what's going on, on a subconscious level where there is no formal contact.. or Ur just picking out on a concious level, how it's emenated by verbal interaction can vary depending on what was detected and situations etc 2) if we can envision 2 individual couples for example and both are partly linked, one by empathy solely with no formal contact and 2 by like a mutual connection. Although the two by mutual contact can converse and address issues external and internal and clarify and verify, we cannot always accurately determine the scenario taking place externally, we may get snippets of it but it ties in with point 1 above. 3) couple a, for example view this as a triangle, point a and b are connected and point c has very brief awareness and no formal contact, when b absorbs this they absorb from a and c so it makes it difficult to determine what's going on, while a is aware of whats happening a try's to negate both b and c. A tried to negate after the incident with a tip shared by member sasha-supertramp on her blog, changing the tune or something like that. c is trying to process what a is doing with some belief and questionning also concerned and disheartened of what difficulty a has gotten into from where the empath trip initially began. B has no clue and is confused and upset and angry and some anger Has seeped through.. To simplify, you can use your abilities and power of your mind and emotions and projection by knowing your tools and self awareness. tools were in this case music-to simulate happier loving emotions for b whilst trying to pacify, self mangement tools used to pacify c were humour and sarcasm. Another scenario again involved 3 other individuals from a distant city: A is picking up some tips that have been suggested to b, while b is working with c, c who is difficult to work with, a try's to block out with respect and dignity for b and c, though a is aware b can get disheartened when they genuinely try but c can be unpredictable. A was aware of this so tuned into another resource, a feel-good movie, though a is absorbed in b's energies, because they don't know how to successfully negate, they tried to keep they're own in balance, in hope b can absorb them to resolve any conflict with c with balance of what they cannot balance, temper.. not sure how it went with that b never confirmed.. Hope that makes sense? Utilise what you have in basic resources and see how you can utilise them to benefit ones self and others. A note on turning to imagery for some guidance or clarity bear in mind though we know again if I use a couple example, b is aware of a and who they are, they are also beginning to pick up what and how c sees a. Will add more to that if it makes sense?

You seem gifted. Very observant. They all notice it. They want to hide the truth for some reasons. They feel uncomfortable around you.

You understand people. You know how to put yourself in their shoes when it calls for it.
