ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception)

Have you felt a little different from other people since you were a child? Do things happen to you that you can’t explain? Do you sometimes have a clear feeling about a future event? If so, you might be "supersensory" (in other words, psychic). Check out these 10 signs to see if you have extra-sensory perception, or a sixth sense.

10 Signs You Might Be Psychic

  1. You have a well-developed intuition.
  2. You know when trouble is imminent.
  3. You hear voices.
  4. You just know things.
  5. You read thoughts.
  6. You see auras.
  7. You have visions.
  8. You sense the past when holding objects.
  9. You often experience déjà vu.
  10. You have divinatory abilities.
Intuition is also referred to as having a gut feeling or a strong hunch. This sense is heightened in people with ESP.

1. You Have a Well-Developed Intuition

This is also known as a gut feeling or a strong hunch. Your body, everyone’s body, in fact, is an antenna. It is sensitive to energy. Everyone can tune into their intuition, but most choose to ignore it. You have learned that your intuition has guided you well throughout your life. You don’t make decisions logically, although you do consider that your way is logical.

To test out your intuition, next time you have to make a decision, however small, place your hand on your solar plexus and become aware of the feeling in your body when you consider each choice laid before you. Do you feel it? Your body and your intuition know what to do before you do it.

Precognition often manifests as a feeling of dread or a deep sense of knowing.

Precognition often manifests as a feeling of dread or a deep sense of knowing.

2. You Know When Trouble Is Imminent

This is known as precognition (pre-knowing). You recognize it before it happens. This often manifests as a feeling of dread or a deep sense of knowing that unless you or someone else takes action, there’s going to be trouble. Sometimes it’s hard to know what exactly is going to happen, but you can feel it.

It’s possible to train yourself to discern the forthcoming event by journaling your feelings. Ask your feelings what they are trying to tell you.

Perhaps you often dream about the future. This also comes under the precognition umbrella, but usually, the dream is very specific. You are shown snippets of events, usually detrimental to someone close. Sometimes it might be a catastrophic event, such as an earthquake or another natural disaster. Precognitive folk are often able to foretell when people are about to die because they meet them in their dreams.

People with ESP will sometimes hear whispers and voices, but there is no physical source.

People with ESP will sometimes hear whispers and voices, but there is no physical source.

3. You Hear Voices

You hear whispers and voices, but there is no physical source. You’ve ruled out mental disorders, so it’s likely that you have clairauditory (clear hearing) abilities. Very often, this psychic skill means you are a channel for spirits. It’s up to you whether you develop this further by delivering the messages to those they are intended for or whether you shut down this ability.

Sometimes psychics will just know things—as if they can see the ideas just floating in the air.

4. You Just Know Things

Some may mix this up with intuition, but it doesn’t matter. They are certainly closely related. Claircognizants (people with clear understanding) know things they shouldn't be able to know. They find it hard to explain it—they say, “I just know it.” Some might mention that the knowing is a strong mental feeling.

While it's amazing that people with ESP can sometimes read thoughts, it can also be exhausting.

5. You Read Thoughts

You often know what someone is going to say before they say it. You can tell who’s calling before you answer the phone. Sometimes you know when your child or partner is in a difficult situation. You may often preempt a request. For example, you take your husband a cup of tea, and he says, “You must have read my mind.” If this happens a lot, you are probably tuning in to his "requests." This is a sign that you have telepathic skills. If you think you are telepathic, there are many ways to develop your ability. Playing guessing games is helpful.

While everyone has an aura, not everyone can see them. If you can, you might be a psychic.

6. You See Auras

Seeing auras is more common than you think. You can probably see your own right now. Hold your hand in front of a dark background and move your fingers slightly. You should see a silvery aura like cigarette smoke around your fingers. It might take a little practice, but you’ll soon be able to play with the energy between your fingers. Then you can progress to other people and auric colors.

Seeing visions and spirits is a sign of clairvoyance.

7. You Have Visions

Seeing visions and spirits is a sign of clairvoyance (clear vision) or second sight. This often occurs in conjunction with clairaudient abilities. Receiving messages from spirits means that you are a psychic medium (i.e., an intermediary between the living and those who have passed). It’s possible to shut down these abilities, but often times spirits can be quite nagging in their enthusiasm to get their message heard.

Sometimes, people with ESP can see through time and space.

8. You Sense the Past When Holding Objects

You might be able to discern the past history of an object or its owner simply by holding it. It can work with people too. Have you ever brushed past someone in a busy street and had a picture flash into your mind that seemed to have nothing to do with you? That’s psychometry, or clairtangency (clear touching). You are picking up vibration. Everyone can do this, but not everyone can translate what they feel into words or pictures.

We all experience déjà vu, but psychics tend to experience these moments more often and more intensely.

9. Déjà Vu

We all have these odd little experiences, but you may have them more than most because you are tuned in. People think they are experiencing something they experienced in the past, but it’s the opposite. You may never have been in that place, but you once had a "future memory" of it. Hence the strange feeling of knowing but not quite knowing. You are tuning into a memory.

A very strong conviction that you have been somewhere before or have met someone previously probably indicates that you are remembering a past incarnation.

Some psychics are able to intuit meaning from divinatory tools, such as tarot cards, playing cards, and a glass or crystal ball.

10. You Have Divinatory Abilities

If you are able to intuit meaning from divinatory tools, such as tarot cards, playing cards, a glass or crystal ball, palm reading, tea leaf reading, or anything like that, then you are probably an intuitive psychic. It is possible to learn such skills; for example, the tarot is a structured system that anyone can learn. The skill when reading cards is to marry the meaning with your intuition to give an accurate interpretation.

Scrying (foretelling the future using a reflective object or surface) with a crystal ball or dark mirror is a form of meditation. Again, anyone can learn this and with practice, become proficient in foretelling the future.

Another divinatory skill is divining for water, objects, and energy lines. Divining involves using a divining rod, usually made from a light twig or wire, and picking up varying energy patterns from the earth. Holding a pendulum will also yield results.

What to Do if You Think You Are Psychic

It’s up to you—do you want to build on your gift/s, or would you rather not experience your psychic abilities? Sometimes, you can shut them down by stating your intention clearly. Meditation may also help. If you would like to see where your skills could take you, then research and practice until you become competent.

Search for people with similar abilities to your own and share your experiences. Don’t be frightened of your extra-sensory perception; know that it is indeed a gift, and remember, whatever it is you "see," it was going to happen anyway.

While psychics are rare, their abilities are admirable and worth paying attention to.

Psychic Tools and Techniques

Tools and TechniquesAbout


Astrology calculations are based on the exact positions of the Sun, Moon and planets. This has lead to a uniform calculation system. You can actually bring a copy of your chart to any astrologer and they can read it.

Crystal Ball

The crisp visuals that a psychic gets from crystal ball are by far the most accurate illustrations of the future.

Feng Shui

Creating an energy of harmony in your work and living environments can make you a master of the universe when it comes to career and love success.


When you toss the I-Ching and compose a hexagram, a psychic guiding you on this exercise is working with a divination technique that is nearly 5,000 years old. Used by emperors for millennia, the randomness of the I-Ching toss transforms into an orderly vision for the future.

Ouija Board

Intense energy from the astral plane can guide the glass to letters that spell out answers to the most intense, specific questions. Under the right guidance, a Ouija is Instant Messaging to another plane of reality.


The simplest lines can have the deepest meanings to a master of palmistry. Return visits are especially helpful as a palm reader can see the subtle shifts to your fortune as the actions and repercussions of your free will choices are recorded as changes in the lines in your hand.

Relaxation Techniques

A psychic who gets you ready for a reading with a session of relaxing truly understands that a tense client mind is like reading a long novel, while reading a relaxed mind is like watching a fascinating new movie.


Druidic runes combine the archetypal symbology of astrology with the chance energy absorption of tarot. They are one of the best indicators of the “big picture” as it relates to your inner psyche and human potential.

Tarot Cards

The rich illustrations of a tarot deck give your psychic many possible points of departure. The card spreads juxtapose differing situations to reflect the complexity of everyday life.


A psychic versed in the art of tealeaf reading understands that the patterns left in the swirl have been impacted by your energy like the Moon controlling the tides. Subtle and ephemeral, the good psychic can see one or two grand archetypal visions in every session.

Questions & Answers

Question: Whenever I look at something hard I see sketches of little figures; one time one waved at me. Could that be a hint that I'm psychic?

Answer: I believe that is quite common. I see figures in our bathroom tile and wooden floors. I have heard of some artists using them as inspiration. Human beings are programmed to see faces and figures in patterns because of needing to identify danger in difficult-to-see environments like shady forests. It's called 'pareidolia.'

I'm not sure about the waving. I guess that's a trick of the light.

Question: What's the ability to take away pain, and how do you learn to control it?

Answer: It's called 'healing'. The best way to learn it is to study Reiki or some other energy healing modality.

Question: When I was younger I heard voices time to time, but it stopped at a certain age. Is it possible that I have shut down the voices involuntarily? Also, I still see people running and disappearing behind a wall or under my bed (usually girls). How can I see and hear them more often?

Answer: It's possible you simply grew up and lost the ability to hear those voices. When I was little, I used to hear someone calling me just as I was dropping off to sleep, but it never happens nowadays.

As regards the running people, how about you try setting up your phone or a camera to film the room when you are asleep or not there? Might be fun. Not really sure how you could make it happen more frequently. Just be there, I suppose. You could also try meditating in the room and see if you get any interesting insights or messages.

Question: I have a strong intuition and have been able to feel spirits. I even have flashbacks like movie scenes of real incidents in my head. Also, tarot readers and psychics tend to steer away from me when I try to get a reading. I know I have a gift, but how can I be certain?

Answer: I'd suggest you keep a psychic journal of all these things. After a while of keeping a record of all your intuitions, flashbacks and real-life incidents, you will begin to see patterns emerging. You'll be able to pinpoint when these things are most likely to happen, how accurate they are, and whether you could have intervened or helped in certain situations.

Question: I can hear voices! Even my medical results show I have very sensitive hearing. What does this mean?

Answer: My friend just got diagnosed with auditory hallucinations. Perhaps it is that? It doesn't mean that you have any kind of mental disorder, it's just a weird phenomenon similar to tinnitus.

Question: How can I develop my psychic abilities?

Answer: I wrote an article on a different site, which mentions three ways to develop your psychic abilities. Of course, there are many more, but these will start you off:

Question: Something happens - I'd feel it already happened and I just know the answer. My dreams have deep meaning. I can hear and see things when alone in the dark. I automatically write something fast and not think twice before publishing it. I sometimes feel like I'm in another place. I could feel other people's emotional state and it makes my chest heavy. Sometimes I hear someone calling my name but I was the only one who was there. Something doesn't feel right. Am I psychic?

Answer: You may be, I can't tell. Perhaps keeping a journal of your experiences, thoughts and feelings would be helpful to you. It might enable you to discern patterns and meanings. This article might be useful:

Question: I’ve always felt different from everyone else. I’ve had a vision, and I’ve seen a black mass (ghost). I tend to have a strong gut instinct. Does this mean I’m possibly psychic?

Answer: Everyone is somewhere on the scale or spectrum of having psychic abilities. So yes, you are. However, what you describe is not particularly strong evidence of having 'usable' psychic skills. So, like I tell people who ask similar questions, the way to develop your gift is to keep a journal, to pay attention to small signs, dreams, and even fleeting thoughts that seem to come from nowhere.

Question: Can a sixth sense be passed down through family genes?

Answer: Yes, it's common for psychic abilities to be grouped in families. Sometimes it will skip a generation, sometimes only the women are psychic.

Question: Why do my eyes tingle/twitch intensely when I think about doing something mean to someone?

Answer: When your eyes tingle/twitch when you are thinking about doing something mean, it's a clear sign that you are considering doing something that will ultimately harm you. Your body has an innate intelligence and it knows that being mean is not in alignment with your true self. It's better not to be deliberately mean.

Question: Since I was young I’ve felt vibes from people and I could instantly tell how they are, or whether something good or bad will happen to them. I've seen apparitions in my home. I know there is an energy in my house that has been there for a while. Others, which I think attached to me, follow me home. I haven’t seen things lately because I’ve been distancing myself from it. But recently I experienced a really dark energy. What does this all mean?

Answer: Firstly, it sounds like you are an empath who can link to other people, and pick up their emotions. You also have some clairsentient or claircognizant abilities. As far as the dark presences are concerned, you might want to adopt some psychic protection techniques just to give yourself some immunity. They can't harm you, but it's not comfortable to have them around.

This article may be helpful:

Question: I have a strong intuition. When I don't feel comfortable with some people, it's always because they are bad in some way. I always like to say I can feel their negative vibe. I would really like to open up my sixth sense. How can I do that?

Answer: You should probably learn how to meditate. During meditation, you may well receive guidance and direction on what path to take. You will be able to connect with that intuitive part of you who knows all the answers already.

Question: My seven-year-old granddaughter has been showing signs of having psychic ability. How can we help her to develop and guide her through this?

Answer: For the time being, you shouldn't draw attention to her abilities. Let her be 'normal.' If she mentions visions or dreams, then listen to her but don't make a big thing of it. It's important that she is not frightened or grows up thinking there's something weird about her.

As she gets older, you can seek further advice.

Question: I dream of things that tend to happen in real life. Also lately my ability to tell the future when awake has been getting stronger. I believe something might happen and lately, in less than a day, it happens. I also tend to have deja vu all the time. What does all this mean?

Answer: It means you can tell the future. So your intuition or sixth sense is very strong.

Question: Why do I have a strong feeling about what could happen next? It's as if I can tell what people are planning.

Answer: This is called 'intuition'. Your intuition is tuned in to a 'higher plane' and already knows what is going to happen and what people are thinking. You can develop and learn to rely on your intuition as a source of guidance.

Question: I don't know if I'm psychic or not. I used to have a lot of dreams about something that would happen in the future. I would never remember my dream but when it happened I have a feeling in my stomach. Would you consider this as a psychic ability?

Answer: This is the common phenomena of deja vu. It's not necessarily connected to dreams or psychic abilities, although science has not been able to explain it satisfactorily:

It might be a good idea to keep a dream journal. You'll be able to remember your dreams more and more clearly if you write the gist of them down as soon as you awake.

Question: Sometimes I hear voices talking to me especially when I'm asleep. I immediately wake up after hearing those voices and it feels like they are just beside me. I also have premonitions before someone dies. Is that psychic?

Answer: If those voices give clear, decipherable messages then, yes, that is a sign you are psychic. And yes, if you have clear knowledge that a specific person is about to pass away, that would also be a psychic skill.

However, if the voices are random with no clear message, that's probably just dreaming. If you know that the person is terminal, that's probably not psychic either.

Question: When I'm alone in my room, some scenes appears in front of me that could happen in the future. It may be pain or happiness. Most of the times the visions come true. When I share it with my parents or friends they say it's negative thinking. They don't take it seriously. Am I psychic?

Answer: The way to do this is not to talk to people who doubt you but to keep a psychic journal of your visions. Write down what you see and date it. Do this every time you have a vision. Every now and then, go back to your notes and add more information, such as whether it came true and how it came about.

Also make a note of your emotional state each time. Look for patterns. Only by keeping records will you be able to verify your visions.

And don't worry about what other people think.

Question: I see spirits. I am also easily frightened, and feel like someone is watching me. Am I a psychic?

Answer: If you see things that other people can't, then you are probably clairvoyant. So yes, psychic. No need to be afraid; you can easily put simple protection techniques in place:

Question: I kept dreaming of 2 severed fingers. My daughter then told me a nail stylist's daughter was in a fireworks accident and two of her fingers were blown off. Is that a sixth sense?

Answer: It sounds like a perfect example of sixth sense in action.

Question: Out of the list of 10 signs that I might be a psychic, I answered yes to 1,2,3,4, and 9. My question is: aren't these sensations common in everyone? In addition, there have been at least a few dozen times in my lifetime when I have been told I am overly sensitive and empathic. Is this normal?

Answer: People will often demonstrate one or two of the qualities described. However, to have most of them indicates that the person is 'tuned in' to energy or vibration or whatever you want to call it. This also means they are very likely to be psychic. Empathy means that you feel the emotion that another is feeling--often without knowing them or speaking to them. A very small percentage of the population is empathic to that degree.

Question: I heard my ex calling my name the day he died. I heard voices telling me I would meet my future husband and I did. I heard a voice telling me that someone important to me was trying to contact me on my phone and he was. Am I psychic?

Answer: Yes, it looks as though you have strong psychic abilities. But you know that already, don't you?

Question: I often have a sense of something that turns out to be true. I also predict or know that a message has arrived before I check my phone. I actually feel its arrival. I also swear sometimes I tap into radio station waves with random songs coming into my head. I sometimes worry about distinguishing between paranoia and fear or intuition. Do I predict it or do I manifest it? How do I differentiate between instinct or sixth sense and fear or paranoia?

Answer: Fear and/or paranoia feels extremely uncomfortable and negative. Your intuition is neutral. Fear leads to manifestations you'd rather not experience. Intuition is simply your mind/body's news service.

Question: I have had bad feelings before and then I find out that someone I love has been hurt in some way. It has happened at least three times. I’ve also had dreams about places and then in real life I’ve found my self in those places. Could I be psychic or is it just a connection with my loved ones?

Answer: You probably have a degree of psychic ability that could be developed by observing and recording your experiences. Highly recommend that you keep a journal.

Question: One day I was outside at the car line at school, and I looked at the sea of people. As soon as I glanced, they all disappeared, as it would look after school. Then, I blinked, and they were back. Is this a sign of psychic abilities?

Answer: Not by itself, no. You would have to have accurate premonitions or to have knowledge about things you couldn't possibly know by normal means to be psychic. Your people-disappearing occurrence was probably a momentary mind glitch.

Question: My sister is showing psychic ability. She told me she saw things in her dreams and she could sense things wherever she went. Then one day she went completely silent. She just tuned out of everything and became distant to everybody. She’s only 13 and I’m really concerned about her. Do you have any advice on how best to deal with my sister's sudden changes?

Answer: I have no idea what is happening with your sister, but presumably, your parents are seeking professional medical advice? Some illnesses can be preceded by a deeply spiritual period, so it's really important to get her checked out properly.

Question: What if I sense or just become nervous whenever I come to places alone, but I’m not scared it’s just like that weird gut feeling -- what do you call that?

Answer: It's your intuition. If it's uncomfortable, you should leave.

Question: I sometimes get an overwhelming feeling of sadness and sinking in my stomach when I visit random places. It’s usually houses or old buildings, I've always presumed I’m sensing something to do with its history, but what is it I’m sensing? Could I develop this further?

Answer: Some people are able to pick up on the vibrational energy of a place. My suggestion would be to keep a journal and write down everything you feel and observe. As you continually do this, you start to notice more.

Question: I have had dreams of specific tragedies far from my own life in the past, known people who have had the same prophetic dreams as me, had out-of-body experiences as a child and teenager, been paralyzed in nightmares, and sense/hear things that are not there. Am I an empath, psychic, or a sensitive?

Answer: You could be all or any of those. However, you could direct your gifts in any direction you choose by practice and study.

Question: I feel a lot of other people’s feelings without them telling me that something's wrong. It’s a gut reaction, and most of the time I end up getting those same exact feelings. Even looking at a picture; one time I looked at the ‘Black Dahlia’ murder case and came across pictures and I felt a lot of sadness and anger. Would that have something to do with a sixth sense?

Answer: It sounds as if your psychic gift manifests in the form of empathy. Used in a positive way, such as if you became a councilor or therapist, it can be a wonderful thing. However, it is important that you learn how to control and shield yourself because it might cause you to have problems throughout your life. This article may be helpful:

Question: I live in a small town in Japan, and I'm a foreigner. Since the day I arrived here, there's a certain place that makes me too emotional. It feels too strong to me, like something happened there of which I am a part. When the wind blows, I feel like it surrounds me and tries to whisper to me. I will be leaving soon from here. What is your suggestion?

Answer: Two options: Either try to find out from locals if something did happen there. Or don't go back.

A third option would be to silently ask your guides to help you understand what this place has to do with you. You could do either of the two above as well as this one.

Question: I have tried to see my spirit guide through meditation and I have yet to meet them. Is there any other way to meet them? Do the ghosts communicating with me want to cross over? What do they want?

Answer: Your spirit guide will connect with you when you are ready.

I don't know what the spirits want. Ask them to leave you a clear sign because you want to help them.

Question: I have had numerous events happen that I was warned about beforehand. What does this mean?

Answer: It depends how you received the warnings. If through dreams, visions, whispered messages, then you have a well-developed sixth-sense.

Question: I don't know if it's a sixth sense or not, but sometimes I remember an old friend and the very next day, they will call or something. Why does that happen?

Answer: That's very common and has to do with your intuition. Your sixth sense simply knows when that person is going to call and sends you a little notification. It's similar to knowing who's on the phone before you pick it up.

Question: I hear whispers and voices. There is information that automatically pops up in my head from people from the spirit world. Sometimes, they say they are my twin brother. I also see things in my peripheral view, but when I face it directly, there's nothing there. Can you explain this?

Answer: If they are accurate premonitions of future events, then that indicates you have psychic ability. If the information is abstract and means nothing to you, then it is most likely random thoughts like most of us get.

I don't know about the twin brother thing. You would have to ask your mother if there was a twin embryo or stillbirth.

Regarding seeing things on the periphery, that is fairly common. Sometimes it is a shadow, a trick of the light, or even some kind of spirit.

Question: Could there be people looking for the ones with sixth sense abilities? And if so, who might they be?

Answer: There could be, but that is probably heading into the realm of supernatural fiction.

Question: Every day, I feel and sense how people feel. I hear voices in my head telling me to say this or that. I constantly feel presences that are so strong. I cry, but I've never seen one. I sense, feel, or hear these things. What do I do? Who should I speak to?

Answer: I think you need to get some professional advice. Voices in your head are often a sign that you are under stress or pressure. So it's important that you rule out that there is no underlying medical cause for your experiences. If you are young, speak to your parents or guardian. If you are old enough, make an appointment with your doctor.

Question: I tend to cross paths with people who are either vessels or plainly possessed. I feel I'm a tool in the spirit realm. They know who I am, and I've been told by many that they see something over me that protects me. Also, many are out to get me because they want my light. What does all this mean?

Answer: I suspect that by 'light' you mean spiritual energy. Avoid such psychic vampires. If you feel uncomfortable at any time, leave the room, place, or person.

All this means you should make sure you are psychically protected, and that you should perform regular cleansing rituals. Set your personal boundaries and know clearly what you will and won't do.

For more information, see this article:

Question: Is it possible to have two sixth senses?

Answer: If you are asking is it possible to have more than one psychic gift, then yes. People often do. And being psychic often cover a whole range on the spectrum. Some people are clairvoyant and clairaudient.

Question: I used to call them coincidences. For example, I’ll think of something, then it will happen within the next few days, and it’s usually something odd. If I think of a certain movie, I’ll see it on a channel when I'm clicking through. It also happens with people, songs, and books. I just recently started keeping a note of these coincidences. Does this mean anything? Do I have an ability? Could I make it stronger?

Answer: This is what's called 'Law of Attraction'. These things are not important to you, therefore you have no resistance to them. They flow from your mind and manifest in your reality. It happens to a lot of people and is not really a psychic ability. However, it's a strong sign that you could manifest what you wanted with some deliberate thinking. Look up Law of Attraction. I have an article which might help explain:

Question: I randomly hear voices and songs. And no one is with me. What does this mean?

Answer: You are one of the 3% of the population who suffer from auditory hallucinations. Consult your medical advisor for more details.

Question: What is the feeling of dread I get that I must act on something? The first feeling MADE ME go back in to tell my mother I loved her. That evening she passed away before I made it to the hospital.

Answer: It is your intuition trying to get your attention. It's obviously strong and accurate, so continue to pay attention to it. So sorry about your mother, but glad you got to tell her the most important thing in the world.

Question: I feel very different from others. Like I don’t belong. I also seem to know what is going to happen just before it does. I am 40 and it is becoming more frequent. Telling people isn’t an option for me; it’s my own personal entertainment. Am I crazy or do I have something unique?

Answer: Your intuition is tuned in to a 'step ahead'. On the spiritual plane (or psychic realm, or whatever you want to call it), time is all over the place. Somehow you are able to pick up the vibrations of events just before they happen in, what we call, 'reality'. Personally, I recommend keeping a journal of such occurrences.

Question: Often a word comes to my mind, and I cannot forget it. Then that word pops up in conversations and in newspapers. It happens so many times that I feel that the current moment or situation is one I have experienced earlier. What is it? I want to know.

Answer: This happens to me too. It's Law of Attraction. When you are giving your attention to something, you experience instances of it all the time. Imagine if you bought a certain make of car. Suddenly you notice them constantly. It's like everyone bought that same car.

I notice when I am reading and the TV is on, I'll read a word at the exact same time as someone on TV says it. And my partner will mention something while watching a soccer game (or whatever) and a moment later the commentator will repeat his very words.

The feeling that you get about having experienced a situation before is deja vu. No-one can explain it properly.

Question: How long can I experience having an extra sensory perception?

Answer: It depends, there aren't any specific lengths of time. Usually, they are quite quick. If the odd feelings continue, I would suggest you get yourself checked out by a medical professional. Sometimes feeling 'out of it' or light-headed, or dizzy can mean an underlying condition such as tiredness and stress, or lack of a certain vitamin or mineral.

Question: Sometimes I will be sitting there all calm and get the worst gut feeling ever. That same night or the next day something terrible happens. What does that mean?

Answer: It means your intuition is tuned in to what's called, the collective unconscious. Some call it the Akashic Records. It's the plan of existence where time doesn't exist in the way it does here. So your body is like an antenna, it's able to feel those strong vibrations of the bad thing before it actually happens. Try keeping a journal and log when, where and how it happens. Then update it after the event.

Question: I can sense things like when another person is lying or not. Also what happened exactly at events that I wasn't at which I wasn't present, even the age, name, weight, character. Is it a sixth sense like a psychic? Or just my imagination?

Answer: If your perceptions are true, then it is your intuition (or sixth sense) kicking in.

Question: Once, I saw a person riding a bike, I so desperately wanted to see that person again. I was begging to see him, once more. Next day, I decided to go for a walk. I could choose to walk down the road or up the road; then I had this urge to walk down the road. A few minutes later, as I was walking down the road, I saw the person on the bike. He rode right past me, I had seen him again, perfect timing. I had multiple of these experiences; please explain what they mean?

Answer: It means you have a strong connection with your intuition. Your conscious mind is working in tandem (excuse the pun) with your gut feeling. Not many people listen to theirs.

Question: I will warn someone not to park in a certain place or they will get a ticket. And within days it happens. My husband got 3 tickets in a month and all 3 were things I warned him of. Told my friend she needed to fix her car because she was going to run out of gas and within a week she was on the side of the road. She ran out of gas. I can think of someone and within days they call or I run into them. What would this be called? It happens way to much to be a coincidence.

Answer: It's precognizance. 'Pre': before; 'cognizant': knowing. So 'pre-knowing'. Some people have the ability to tap into the realm of the collective unconcious, where time doesn't exist. Everything that has happened, is happening and will happen is there. Some also call it claircognizance.

Question: Can small things mean you are psychic? I heard an incessant dog bark. I decide to go out to check on our cat and it was our neighbor's dog. So I put it back in their yard. Also one of my childhood heartbreaks texted me after not responding. I knew he had gotten married. When he texted me, I got married. But those are a few that stand out.

Answer: They sound like normal occurrences, not psychic episodes, unless I'm missing something here. You probably heard the dog barking in your sleep, and it's pretty common for people to reach out to their exes.

Hi Dre, it sounds as if you have a well-developed intuition. I don't know of any assistance, but I have a list of resources here:

Dré on August 20, 2020:

I read a few of the comments and a lot of the examples people have given here, I have experienced. Especially the one where I could be thinking about a person, show\movie or an event ... And then something happens in my real life that revolves around those thoughts days later. Sometimes, I would find myself randomly thinking or dreaming of someone and unfortunately that person ends up passing away. I have also had moments of just knowing events that could\have occurred and sense negative energy surrounding an individual. Lastly, a few years back I had a spanish professor stop me at the end of class and asked me if i was the person that supposed to help her family. She said she had a dream about me and that something was going on in her family where i believed she was in need of psychic assistance (I stopped going to her class). The weird thing is during that same time, I took a bit of interest in reading tarot cards and was already freaked out ...wanting nothing to do with psychic business (ask the cards about my relationship and got a horrifying response ...turned out to be somewhat true and here I am still 5 years deep). Sorry, i know ive been going on for a bit but I was wondering if any of it means anything or where i could get some real life assistance?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 07, 2020:

Hi Bark, it seems as though you are surrounded by a strong energy, almost like a vortex. I think that your priority should be focused on managing these disturbing episodes, i.e. the panic attacks. I am no expert is dealing with such things so I recommend you do some research on learning how to relax and release the feelings. You might try breathing exercises, mental exercises, EFT, and meditation. See what you can find.

I also recommend keeping a written journal to include all these events, and your feelings and reactions to them. Looking back on previous entries can be very illuminating.

Bark on August 07, 2020:

Sometimes i see a white shadow of a person which immediately disappears. Sometimes it passes infront of me or travels from one room to another. sometimes the lights of the whole house goes off without any reason. Again when i am sleeping the bed trembles. It feel like someone is shaking the bed. It have happened more than 10times. Recently, i started experience immense negative vibes. I feel the negative vives from a person or any place i visit. Sometimes it gets to a extent that i start getting anxiety attack and i know something bad is about to occur and it actually occurs. My intuitions are also pretty strong. So can you help me in understanding what is happening?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 07, 2020:

What was your query, Bark? Sometimes comments are filtered out and don't make it through to me.

Bark on August 07, 2020:

I did not receive any response for my query. Can you please address my query

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 04, 2020:

Hi Aritra, I'm not sure what you are asking. Your experience is shared by several people who have commented here and my advice is the same. You need to keep a detailed journal of all your psychic occurrences. Then you will be able to clarify things in your mind.

Aritra on August 03, 2020:

I want to know that what ever i say.....i dream,, i think becomes true ...and its not co incidence ..because every single time it happens and also i can see through a persons eyes and can know what they are feeling inside their head...i dont know exactly if they are gifts or something else ...please help me out

Bark on August 03, 2020:

I sometimes see a shadow. Suddenly it comes and disappears. It generally happens when i am alone. Again recently i can just see the person and feel vibes. I can feel if something negative is going to happen. I can also feel negativity or positivity in a room. Also whenever i am sleeping alone in my house i feel someone is there and sometimes i wake up with the bed trebling but i cannot see anything. Sometimes all lights goes off suddenly without any reason again when i am alone. Some psychic said some sprit is always there with me. I do not what is happening. Sometimes the negative vibes from others affect me so much that i get anxiety attack when in reality the person may be good to me.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 12, 2020:

Hi Grace,

Have a read through the questions and comments here. There are several suggestions of how to handle these unusual gifts.

Grace Rivera on July 12, 2020:

I saw ghost when I was 6 and some few occasions too.I mastered interpreting few meanings of my dreams and it's so accurate.I think I have that bit of psychokinesis ability if I'm going to interpret what I did before. I didn't continue with it because I was scared.The clouds and moon for twice showed images I was able to interpret after it happened,I was even able to take a video of it and showed my friend.there were few happenings thats somewhat familiar to me already.i experience premonitions like it's warning me that it's gonna be unlucky day and it's true.

How can I improve what I have. There is this uncomfortable feeling that I feel why I am like this...different with others.thank you :) .

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 07, 2020:

Hi Sgqualls,

So sorry to hear of your family tragedies. Your pain must be immense.

The important thing to know is that these things would have happened anyway - whether you felt them coming or not. You may not think that it's a gift, but it is - you have the gift of time. Most of us experience these things like a clap of thunder coming out of the blue, but, you at least have the chance to make the most of your time with your loved ones. Every minute is precious.

Maybe reading some books about death and the afterlife may help you a little. There are many good ones out there, written by ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences. See what you can find. One of them may be able to ease you pain a little.


Sgqualls on July 06, 2020:

I don't know if I have any but this has me very angry,confused and questioning myself. It started my grandmother, she asked if i wanted to leave with her on a trip, i always left with her. I was in grade 2. For some reason I said no, i wanted to go with her. A few days later i remember that night so clearly. I remember looking at how huge the moon was and how bright orange it was. I went home and i was told she had passed. Again in 1992 my brother asked if i wanted to go for a ride. I said no, again I wanted to but all that day for some reason I kept thinking why i couldn't see or questioning his future. That evening a few minutes past 6 i felt this tremendous pain in my stomach where i fell to me knees. Tge pain lasted seconds. Idk how long it was but got a call from my sister telling me my brother was dead. That year i kept thinking of my aunt ..she just kept playing in my mind and that night was told she passed. My first husband. I had dreamed he had died the first yr we were together. In 2009 i told id rather lose him to a woman then to death. Things just kept bothering me. Id panic and one night idk. 2010 July he passed away from a brain tumor. I remarried.. i always had this fear of losing my second husband. We always talked about our future, we were happy. Then maybe a wk b4 he died ..he'd talk about our future and for some reason I couldnt picture it. What is this feeling. Why do have this . I need answers please help me

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 06, 2020:

Hi NA, I can't give you the answers you seek because they are within you. I can only make the same suggestion I do to everyone - keep a written journal of everything that happens in your life. Use a mood tracker and see if your experiences correlate with anything else going on at the time.

Take care.

NA on July 05, 2020:

Ever since i was a kid I’ve been infatuated with the thought of something more than what I am, as I’ve grown I’ve come to the “reality” and just put it aside and never really talked about it or believed. But recently I’ve been having this consistent feeling that I am something more, like I can feel the presence of spirits in my house and other than that I feel like my subconscious is trying to warn me or talk to me about something, I’ve always felt that eventually psychic abilities would come to me but things have been getting more and more strange ever since that feeling grew. For instance I read something about certain people with psychic abilities who will hear this ringing in their ear when something’s wrong and I will hear the excruciating ring and it’s like it’s not my body making the sounds and it feels like something will go terribly wrong at any moment, I need answers I know my life was meant to be something more I just need to know what that will be

Menuha on May 20, 2020:

I am totally a psychic.i never knew that until know

Francie on May 17, 2020:

I can feel people’s energies and I also can read what they are thinking and I’ve heard voices when I’m half asleep and I get bed feelings about things and know what people are going to say before they say it and I can also see people’s auras and I’ve had a dream tell the future before i can also tell when someone is lying i dont know if that’s phsycic or not. Thanks!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 26, 2020:

Hello Shubhra, it's not 'powers' exactly, it's that tou have a developed and sensitive intuition. If you can pick up auditory messages, then you might also be clairaudient (like a clairvoyant, but using your ears instead of seeing spirit).

Shubhra Roy on April 25, 2020:

Hi, I also want to share some of things

I can hear the voice of unseen people and sometime i can also see and feel them that they are around me, yesterday i called my friend but she didn't picked up after that i put my phone on silent mode and suddenly I took my phone like i already knew that she is calling me , and i also have intution that something is going to be happened, so am i magical or i have spiritual powers?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 25, 2020:

Hi Samuel, thank you for sharing your experiences and having the courage to accept your gifts. Dealing with all this must be very scary.

You might find some useful sites here:

Samuel mcpherson on April 25, 2020:

I'm finally going to take this opportunity to stop being scared and share I try to clarify some of my experiences I'm definitely new to saying it out loud and basically looking for the best advice to finally understand what i am capable of I'm severely dyslexic but yet I'm very intuitive I have many psychic abilities I have experienced at least 9 of the clairaudience and clairvoyance I have also being able to remote View and astral travel being able to bee in my physical apartments slumbering in my bed and also at a terrible car accident that my family member has got into in Atlanta Georgia meanwhile I'm living in New York that I was able to be a part I say that to say this it's been very tricking trying to Growing learning strengthen without Really knowing exactly what or how but no one around me can help or relate that being said this post is to break that ice and embark on the new Journey that I meant to be doing hopefully this reaches with universes ability the right Fellowship unique gifted spirits that are out there in the universe I'm a firm believer that if you believe jump

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 25, 2020:

Hi Lou, Sounds like you are both psychic - what fun that could be :)

Lou on April 24, 2020:

Heyooo! Uhm, my boyfriend actually sees the future inside his dreams and it tends to come true, very common. But with me i have a weird feeling around certain people, kind of like an aura sensing? I hear things around me that i cant see with my eyes and whenever something bad about to happen i can feel some dread? And tell people to back down i guess.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 06, 2020:

I'm not sure, kgmedina. The thing is, there's always a 50:50 chance of being right. I 'knew' my first two were boys and that my third was a girl. I think it's intuition but not a sign of full-on psychic ability. If it manifests along with other psychic skills, then maybe. If you haven't already, look into the possibility of studying tarot - you might be well-suited to it.

kgmedina on April 05, 2020:

Good evening, I have reviewed as many of the questions & answers as possible. I have always listened to my intuition and just thought it was normal until I realized/found out most people don't use their intuition the way I do. But I am curious my mother was able to predict that I would be a girl & several years before she passed away could tell the sex of her grandchildren before her kids were pregnant. She accurately predicted both my brothers kids & one of my children. Once she passed away I was able to accurately predict my last child would be a girl. I was also able to accurately tell my middle son couple years before it happened that he would have 2 boys. My niece after she got pregnant I told her the 1st child was going to be a boy & my oldest son and his girlfriend at the time about 3 months before she got pregnant I told my husband they would give us our 1st granddaughter. Is this all part of my intuition or is there something more to this that I am missing?

Thank you

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 20, 2020:

Thank you for sharing your fascinating experiences, Randy,

Randy on February 20, 2020:

I’ve had many experiences. One I remember happened on Christmas Eve when I was taking a short nap before visitors would start coming to the house. I wasn’t sleeping but just laying there in the dark when I had the strong image of an old friend come in my head that I haven’t seen in years. Literally seconds later a knock came at the door and my brother answered it. I could hear him saying he is up stairs. There she was.

I’ve had out of body experiences on two occasions. I’ve seen the ghost of my grandmother five years after she died. I got a phone call 3 am in the morning and knew what the message was before I picked it up. My sister telling me my dad died. I can go and on.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 10, 2020:

It seems that you are psychic, Marta. My best advice is to document these incidences by keeping a journal. You may be able to find a group of like-minded people on social media. Good luck.

Marta on February 10, 2020:

Tonight I was watching the Academy Awards with my family. As the show began I asked if they thought Brad Pitt would win an Oscar again and Leo DeCaprio would lose again. They couldn’t figure out what I meant by “again”. I explained that I had seen it happen in the past. They told me it never happened before. So when Brad Pitt won, I found out that it was his first award. Then when they were announcing Leo’s category, I knew he didn’t win because I had already “seen” it. Everyone was dumbfounded that I had known.

In the past I’ve had premonitions of bad things that were going to happen. Once I was even “guided” to a cemetery to look at family names for my baby who was due in 2 months. I’d never been there before. Tragically my baby was

stillborn. We ended up burying him in that same cemetery.

Recently I had an experience when I was visiting my parents. I was staying in the guest room that used to be my grandmother’s room. She passed at age 99 a few years before. One evening I was sitting in the bed when suddenly a photo flew from the back of a shelf onto the floor. I picked it up and put it back. A couple of hours later when I was in bed, I heard soft music coming from that same cupboard. I was intrigued and went looking for the source. pushed toward the back of the bottom shelf was a music box shaped like a piano. It was playing “You Light Up my Life”. I’d never touched it before and never knew of its existence. Interesting enough, my grandmother played piano at events until she was 93. By now I had the feeling that my grandmother was communicating with me. I got out some family photos and some of her keepsakes to lay on the cupboard next to her Bible. I wanted her to know that I heard her through the activities. I wanted her to know she was welcome there.

Do these things mean that I’m psychic? If so, I’d like to learn more about my gifts or abilities and how to use them. Your response would be much appreciated.

M on February 03, 2020:

Hi, I noticed that if I say something along the lines of "Your plate should fall" and stuffs like that, it always happen. I've tried to trace it and noticed that only when I say something bad would happen, it would. There was also this one time when I was in the car with my family and I had a strong urge to tell my dad to switch lanes or speed up but I ignored the feeling. I should've because we ended up in an accident two or three minutes after. I also noticed that I predict some events before they happen like words people would say, their actions and so on.

brian from uk on December 20, 2019:

I lost a friend lillian some years ago but it not the end its only physical death spirit soul is so fine i try to explain one sat early morning i started to rouse between consious waking from sleep i was suddenly aware of something entering or hovering above my head it felt like a contented and peaceful feeling but it felt like it was nugging me as if to say wake up sleepy head im here i visted a friend later in the morning he told me our friend had passed away i made the link striaghtaway it excited me. I must have been having experiences all of my life but i put it down to some mental problem. I was once told by a clairvoyant ive never suffered from a mental problem and never will she said your just different. I never told her about my past health so i knew she was the real mc coy . Theres a few new utube videos that describes who we are and has we learn and advance but i still wonder some days i could go on and on but i feel its probably for a manual book for others to learn to from

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 19, 2019:

Hi Lillian,

You need to have some strategies in place to be able to deal with these feelings. As soon as you start to feel odd, remove yourself from the situation. Just make any excuse to leave.

Also, start a journal. Get those feelings out of you and down on paper.

Another thing you can use is Switchwords to stay positive:

See how you get on with those suggestions. Oh... and they are nothing to do with witchcraft :)

Lillian on December 19, 2019:

So, I tend to get déjà vu a lot so that’s normal to me now. but also there is another thing that happens to me that is honestly terrifying depending on how strong the feeling gets. If someone I know, or someone close to my friends or family is going to pass away I get a really bad feeling. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s like this type of Erie feeling. If it’s someone I don’t know personally the feeling is hardly there but I can still feel it, if it’s someone close to me then it is strong and is terrifying to me sometimes. I can never tell who it’s going to be or how long it’s going to take until it happens but it normally comes to be a few weeks/a few days before and stays until said bad thing happens. And recently after I started looking more into witchcraft and such I make a joke about something happening, well it’s more like I have a feelings it’s gonna happen so I joke about it not thinking much of it then it happens. Yesterday is was worse then it normally is and I couldn’t get two people off my mind. One is a friend I lost and the other was his best friend. I never really think about either of them, especially not my deceased friends best friend. Tho I do think about my deceased friend every few hours. But anyway the point is that best friend texted me about it after I couldn’t get them off my mind. Since everything is getting worse all the sudden it’s scaring me even more. I’m young and I hate the feelings I get..

brian from uk on October 09, 2019:

But on a personal I never bothered with it as my dad threatened to take me to a psychiatrist and have put in nut ward because on persist nightmare vision in the end I had to keep things to my self I've meet people with similar stores I then shared mine they looked relieved as I felt were not alone

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 09, 2019:

I would think that claircognizance would describe this ability.

Faye on October 08, 2019:

Is there a term for ability to tell if someone's passed from viewing photograph

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 05, 2019:

Yes, Rosaline, I think you are a bit psychic. More than a bit, probably :)

Rosaline on September 05, 2019:

Hi i keep getting things like if i mention someone i see them the next day or if wish for some thing it does happen i went a medim night with my friend she sat next to me and said do you think dave will come through i just said yes he will he came through twice for her from two diffrent mediums and when my mum was on life support they said she wouldnt make it i dreamt of her that night of her finger moving so o told my dad dont turn her life support off shes going to be ok and sure enough her finger moved she did come out of it i could pick a random horse off the telly and it would win when mum was in a coma i felt this very warm around me so strange thats happened twice to me do you think i might be a bit psychic

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 16, 2019:

Hi Joanna, I think I already answered your other question in the Q&A section. As well as being clairaudiant, you are probably an empath as well. It's important you learn how to deal with it, otherwise it can cause problems. So, for instance, when you feel your mood being affected by someone near you, try to move out of their vicinity. If that's not possible, then keep remind yourself that the feelings and emotions are not yours.

This article may help:

Joanna on August 15, 2019:

Hello, I've been having this experience of hearing things as they happen and there is no source. I hear a man's voice and women too I figured out it's my husband but he's not dead.i have gut feeling and know things before finding out they are true. I've had an experience with this hearing thing, one day I heard my husband talking to a woman and minutes later because I was curious I called his work phone and he answered and I heard a woman in the background. It was like a confirmation of what I heard and experiences I had like this were loud and clear and came in like sound waves. Other experience I had was one day feeling sad like something was falling apart I knew something was really wrong but didn't know why and the next day I found out my family that lives 3 hrs away was ripped apart by cyfd because of lies, luckily that mess was cleared up, I also have sensed or felt other people's emotions such as I am standing by someone who is in a certain distance to me and all of a sudden I can go from being happy (myself) to feeling sad or angry (person near me) and actually feel these emotions and then when the person leaves my area I go back to feeling happy or whatever I felt before they came near me. At first I wondered if I was bipolar but it happens so quickly that it doesn't sound like bipolar disorder. I have also been able to sense energies around me like the house I live in when I first moved in I felt some negative energy and then over a year or so later the negative energy grew stronger and this house belonged to my husbands grandparents who passed away before we met.

There were times that I feel like someone woke me up in the middle of the night. Then a message will come into my mind and a picture of someone I knew will flash on my mind. Recently it happened again, then the next day he told me that his mom talked to him at the same time that I woke up. Then, they had a talk. I'm a bit puzzled because some of the words that was said to him came to my mind that night. As if a voice in my mind was telling me some of the things that his mom told him. I also had a strong emotion that I picked up the same night that made me cry. I also have an ability to distinguish the truth from lies. As if someone is telling me which thing must I believe. This voice even saved my life years ago. Until now, I wonder what is this?

Hi Tina,

Who knows? Without being able to link it to someone or something, it has no meaning.

Tia. on July 28, 2019:

This is weird but i was sitting in the dentist office the other day and all the sudden 5th stage cancer came to my head i almost said it out loud I have no idea why i wasnt thinking about it nothing it just came really out of nowhere idk if someone in the waiting room had it or what it was just very weird could this be a sign could it be a psychic ability?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 18, 2019:

It sounds as if you have tuned into some intense energy. It may not be happening currently but could be something in the past or even a long way into the future.

I'd say to keep a journal to record your visions and any updates. You might become more attuned and be able to help someone one day.

Dreamweaver12345 on July 18, 2019:

I know I have psychic abilities but I am concerned about a vision I had. I was on a ATV ride and I envisioned a young woman trying to run out of the woods. She was bloody and crying for help. Then in a split second a man, Whack her on the head! I then felt like I was hooving over her dead remains in the woods! This isn't the first time I had a vision of missing persons. Do I do anything about this or just leave it be?? I have tried to research the area I live in to see if there are any missing persons and I can't find anything. I appreciate any help. Thank you

Hi Brian,

This does happen to some people. The only solution is to avoid crowds and large gatherings. Stick to individuals and small groups.

brian from uk on July 15, 2019:

Think I've spoken before I get this what's called over load like we're my of my normal sense's almost shut down I can hear and respond to people but because I've got overwhelmed it slaps me down and I cannot respond with a clear thinking mind I've only found that if I rush past crowds of people this happens I was going to an OM chant at the time and while I sat listening to the facilitator I sudden felt my self slump and felt you I got facial aches and twitches but I did not want to let the group down later that day Janet another chanter said how great the energy was I replied I was sorry but I did not feel like my normal self Janet replied Brian that me I could feel fantastic energy coming from you she's clairvoyant but I did not feel fantastic

Anonymous, it's possible you have a well-developed intuition. My advice: keep a psychic journal.

Anonymous on July 12, 2019:

Um some times when I’m by myself or not a lot of people are around I get these feelings or shivers that something is near me and is staring at me. Also I don’t really dream or I can never remember if I do, but occasionally I’ll see a random scene in my dream in a third or first person p.o.v and weeks or months later I’ll have some extreme deja vu. Also there have been time where I’ve heard or seen paranormal activity but the encounters are few and very far in between. Is this any sign or am I just paranoid?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 05, 2019:

Hi Germaine, the best way to improve, observe and ultimately control your gift is to keep a detailed psychic journal. Note the event, any conversations linked to it, your emotions and what you experienced psychically. Eventually you will begin to notice patterns and will be able to know when it will happen and why.

Germaine on July 05, 2019:

I have deja vus quite often and i'm able to predict what will happen sometimes and sometimes whenever i asked or said something, my friends will be like " i was just about to say/ask that! "and that day i was thinking if my friend will dream about me ( for some apparent reasons ) and he texted me and told me he dreamt of me just yesterday. I don't know if im psychic or not but i feel abit creeped out, but at the same time i know i shouldn't. im not sure if im really psychic,however, do you know how to improve this ability or comfirm that i actually have this ability?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 22, 2019:

I can't tell you what it all means for you, Daisy., only you can do that. You are clairsentient by the sound of it. I recommend that you keep a journal of all these incidents and see if you notice any patterns.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 22, 2019:

You have sixth sense, Mary. A well-developed intuition and the ability to listen to it. Try keeping a journal and perhaps learn how to 'feel'a specific message.

Daisy on May 21, 2019:

Hello, a few years ago I went camping with my family and my dad was basically drunk and we had to go back down a mountain pass with lots of curves and I had this heavy pull to get my mom and sisters out of the car before we started driving or we would die and I told them they had to get off frantically I felt our life depended on it and we did, someone picked us up and took us home. These past months I get feelings that something heavy will happen like that something was wrong with my father, him thinking about suicide and weeks later a friend tells me my father called her father and was talking about him being depressed and suicide. I felt one time something was wrong with someone close to me, thinking it was my father and later we found out my mom has cancer. I also felt a few 3 months ago that my two pet dogs were feeling anxious or they were in danger and a few days ago one of them died sadly, she got run over. But I feel as if her presence is in me, because she normally wiggles her body when she is happy and today by mother offered me some food and I wiggled my body like my dog which is something I don’t do, and again I wiggled when my mom hugged me, and I didn’t mean to at all. Before I got married a few years ago I felt as if one day my husband wouldn’t be in the religion we were in when we first got married and we wouldn’t be together anymore ( he no longer wants to be in the religion we were when we met and we are separated right now) I also sometimes feel weird vibes from certain people or anxious around them and turns out they are hiding sometning (not necessarily bad but questionable) and turns out to be true. I also felt a heavy presence in my house a few weeks ago as if someone was there and felt a bit scared. What does any of this mean for me?

Mary on May 21, 2019:

I was at the store and saw a family friend of mines son with his uncle I had a weird feeling like I was worried and that i needed to talk to his father but i ended up not talking to him, then I had a feeling of anxiety or something, I couldn’t breath properly and my heart was racing, the day after he commited suicide. I had another feeling the same type two months after and couple hours after that my friends mom passed away, a few weeks after that the feeling came back and that’s when I was worried cause I knew every time I had the feeling someone I know had passed away, I told my grandma and that’s when’s she told me a relative had passed away last night, is this a coincidence or do I have a sixth sense?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 21, 2019:

It sounds as though you are clairsentient, Savannah. I have an article about it here:

Savannah on April 21, 2019:

I have had feelings before and they have came true. Two times I had a feeling someone was going to die and two weeks later someone did

I had that same feeling and someone else in the family had died. The other day I had this bad feeling that there was going to be a tornado so I kept researching what to do if there's a tornado and that night I went to sleep and woke up to an alert that said tornado watch tornado warning is that anything? Thank you

brian from uk on April 18, 2019:

Hello Nat

Sounds like dream clairvoyance yes I can relate to this unlike some dreams which can also have a certain feeling they seem to operate right away what I mean by that you can be having a normal dream when suddenly it changes quickly and your viewing these other scenes years ago I used to dream about oil tankers been blown up and on fire devastation every 3 to 6 months later it happened for real I cannot remember what country now for sure Iran or Tehran there was something going on there well I hope that helps you feel your not alone. I think the reason I remember is because of its negative devastation we probably would not take any notice if you said having a dream you were talking to a stranger and a day later you started speaking to you. You probably get the deja vu feeling of

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 17, 2019:

Thanks for sharing your experiences, Nat. Fascinating stuff.

If you need to reach out and contact others who experience similar things, I made a list of resources here:

Nat on April 17, 2019:

I had dreams that came true, dreams wouldn’t tell much but the feeling was always right, happened so many times and then when it was about my dad i ignored it as I didn’t want to face reality, then Tried to ignore all the same kind of dreams although wasn’t very successful.. have moments when i think of the person and i meet that person or they call just in a minute or an hour after .. not hearing from them months and its normal

Thing now, i know i will hear from them.. i have been asked how things would turn out i mean friends know i can feel it and i just don’t know how i clear my head and i can get this feeling and im always right, i know it works sometimes i can do it buy now afraid to mix it with a fear and would love to learn how to do it right. im not sure how i do it and if i really do it and im confused.. my friends father was in the hospital and she had to fly there and she wasn’t able to leave work and she asked me if he would survive.. different country.. it sounds weird but... i just cleared my head and i told her this time he is going to be fine... but later not sure.. and i remember feeling that I couldn’t say that he is going to be ok.. i just told her now and made sure she heard me.. after around 2 months he past away from smth else. I would like to somehow get this feelings under control. I saw my coworker and i just can’t say why got the feeling she was pregnant, when i asked her she got surprised as she didn’t want to have a baby and was sure that she is not!! After a week she told me she was and that happened twice with another girl as well, but in a different way! Too many different stories like that.. do i have some kind of ability that i can develop and maybe use it for better? Also get deja vu here and there.. I sometimes can sense things at work that I don’t even concentrate.. a few times I guessed that person was going trough some kind of serious health problems.. and usually i do that without thinking too much! Im trying not to say things to people afraid they might come true!! Happened a few times, some were funny situations but some not! I never use the word be careful because it happened that a few times i told the friends out of blue instead of bye and things happened to them.. I guessed words a few times while playing games but not sure if it was a guess or i made them say that word coz that word just came to my head and they repeated it.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 11, 2019:

That's quite common, Brian. I did a day's reading at Witchfest once and could barely speak for two days :D It really drains you.

brian from uk on March 11, 2019:

I tried a beginners Tarot course some time ago I was doing great learning about the major arcana asking questions etc. We went to lunch when we came back I suddenly found it difficult to concentrate and focus it took me half an hour pull my self back the rest of afternoon I had to just listen it's as if I'd run out of energy all of a sudden ☺☺

brian from uk on March 10, 2019:

Sometimes it helps to talk instead of keep punishing ur self in your own mind like saying why me why me

brian from uk on March 10, 2019:

It seems some of us are born with immense gifts but we are not allowed to use them for some reason u can think of some reasons. But for myself I've always known I was different from childhood all I can say now that I'm in those senor years what will be will be and I am who I am

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 10, 2019:

So sorry to hear about your brother, Brian.

It might be a good idea to keep a journal of your dream experiences.

brian from uk on March 10, 2019:

A lot of what you explain in this article I relate too. I don't know what worse the deja vu or the pre cognative dreams which come but there's nothing you can do about death eg one was I was been wheeled down a hallway with bright lights above hospital the next I saw my brothers wifes face looking at me I could see my self as I was the dreamer several years later my younger brother died of cancer

inara on March 07, 2019:

i was in school and someone was annoying me by tapping me on the back . then as i said 'karma' they ran into a pole and as i was going home, i wanted to go the long way and i thought, 'tree' and when i looked at the tree,on it's roots, was a 5 pound note

It's perfectly normal, Neilia.

When I close my eyes to pray I see purple, then I see buildings of stone. It’s like watching a silent movie. It’s always a purple color to it

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 17, 2019:

This is premonition or precognition. It's possible you are a claircognizant, Wendy.

Or clairsentient:

Wendy on February 17, 2019:

Hi Bev...i have this awkward feeling of event....predicting deaths ...example is when i moved in to a new flat,saw a man and i just told myself"oh my God this man is going to die"n within a month he was gone....same to a certain lady the same thing happened...then i was travelling n i felt an accident was going to happen...before i knew it there was.just that i didnt witness it...this is a weird one...i was at my husbands he got a tender ,from the start when he told me i just knew it wouldn't be a success at it came so...i couldn't tell him before

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 12, 2019:

Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, Gene. It seems to happen that families have psychic gifts that manifest in different ways. So cool.

Gene W Strasser from Lake Orion, Michigan on January 12, 2019:

Hello Bev,

This is an interesting Hub. In my family it has become clear that psychic abilities are inherited but we each don't exactly have the same strengths. My mother, on many occasions, has had precognition dreams of friends and relatives right before their deaths. Now, recently, my sister has had experiences with remote viewing. For myself, where my mother has had dreams of people before they have died, I have been having dreams of people after they have died. The most profound was a real and tranquil dream where my father came to visit us. The dream occurred a number of months after he passed away. I have had dreams of the future but in a bizarre way they have only been about future employment where I had detailed views of the office environment.

You wrote about hearing voices as a sign of psychic ability. This is interesting because on two occasions I heard a voice but it was not an audible voice or whisper. The only way that I can explain it, is that it didn't speak to my mind, it spoke to my heart.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 30, 2018:

Hi Georgia, I don't experience psychic dreams (as far as I know). My intuition kicks in with tarot cards, and sometimes claircognisance.

Thanks for sharing your story. I'm sure the spirit and energy of Martia are availabke if you ever want to talk to her. X

GeorgiaFW on December 29, 2018:

Hi Bev. I’m not sure what kind of expirence I’ve had here- it’s hard to talk about. When I was 13 I felt a calling to my local Catholic Church after the death of my grandad. I attended mass every Sunday on my own as my family (asides from my grandad) were not religious. When I was 14 I felt drawn to a certain bench at Mass and I found myself sat inbwtwen two elderly ladies. One was called Mary, and the other Martia. Each Sunday our friendships grew closer, they took me in.. taught me to pray, they helped me to get baptised as I no longer had any practising catholic family, and provided many years of true happiness away from a difficult home life. We soon referred to each other as ‘adoptive’ granddaughter and grandmothers. I really, really loved both of them dearly. At 20 I moved to university- I find goodbyes hard and so I just left. (I feel like I will always regret it). I’m now 22 and a few months ago I had a dream. I dreamt that Martia was telling me she had died... I awoke and I cried. I immediately started grieving for someone that I had no idea had died or not, but for some reason this overwhelming sense of grief was involuntary and I just knew Martia had died.

I hadn’t been to church since I was 20 as I was afraid of going back and having to face that goodbye. So I straight after I awoke that night, I googled my home churches news letter and to my sadness, I discovered that Martia had died and her funeral was the next day. Everyone keeps telling me it was Martia letting me know.

I often find myself dreaming or actually having visions of future events or having such strong, almost weekly Deja Vu. It confuses me because I know my religion tells me it doesn’t really mean anything but I cannot explain some of the stuff I dream and see! Have you had any expirences with dreams yourself?

Thank you, Georgia. X

Yes totally agree about phychic vampires it can be an odd feeling or sensation you suddenly go into this downward spiral like something sucking the life out you you suddenly feel weak for no apparent reason and feelings of negative ness had it happen several times

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 07, 2018:

It's called 'clairvoyance', Taylor. It means 'clear seeing'. You have a psychic gift. Consider keeping a journal of all your visions.

Taylor on December 07, 2018:

I am 12 and every time an event happens in my life like a sleepover and I leave early and sleep at my house I can see what they’re doing and saying clearly and then I tell them the next day and they’re like yeah how did you know. What is this?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 15, 2018:

Hi nephretite, you need to get in contact with others who have similar experiences to your own.

I have written an article on another site that lists some resources:

nephretite on November 15, 2018:

I have been having the sense of when something is going to happen for years. It really is very frightening to me. Various events will continue to run through mind, that are about to happen.More often the not, they are ignored.When they happen..i become even more frightened. I have been to many psychics that have told me of the ability and suggest listening to my intuition. Sometimes, I dnt want to know what is going to happen to friends or even family.I sense , death, When my father passed, I was 17, that night before he passed.. I sat straight up in bed and felt a breath or aura leave my body..I will never forget it. I dnt see things only feel them and its like a message is being sent to me. What is going on? I can assume what it is, but I dnt know how to deal with this

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 13, 2018:

It sounds like you have a well-developed intuition, Lady Black Heart. Glad your sister is okay thanks to you.

lady black heart on November 13, 2018:

I am not sure that i am a psychic. But I had a quite messed up childhood. Given that i could not remember anything past the age of 10 or so, just bits and pieces. But i was always very sensitive to other people. Enough to predict whether they are in trouble, mad, angry and jealous. For example, my stepmom and my sister was having a argument. Later,she bashed inside her room. Everyone thought its just her teenage hormones. But something inside me was nagging that she might do something drastic, so i should go and check her out. It turned out she was trying to slit her wrist. There are so many incidents where my intuition proved to be apt. And my dreams , it is too complex and feels like i am living an another life. Sometimes when real life thing happens i always get the feeling like i dreamt about those things already, before it happened(kind of like dejavu) . Still i dont believe in psychic and all. But what I've been experiencing is quite normal right?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 28, 2018:

You have synaesthesia, Bob. It's a sort of cross-over of the senses. It's not considered to be psychic based.

Bob on October 28, 2018:

Having Deja Vu is not uncommon for me. But what I want to say is, sometimes when I talk to people for the first time they become a certain type of smell to me. People smell like crap for the ones I don't trust, I don't have a smell for the ones I do trust but for people I find attractive I smell vanilla. Not sure what this mean, if anything at all, unless I have a tumor or something.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 25, 2018:

I'm never sure how to answer when people ask, 'What does this mean?' It is what it is. You have a strong intuition and possibly precognition too.

Nargis Khatoon on October 25, 2018:

I remember I've seen a particular place in my dreams years back where I never have been to & last year I was on a tour & I happened to see that exact place for the very first time. Also many a times, when people speak, I know they're lying, I don't trust their words & in my mind, I get a clear picture of something else abt them, I feel as if I know what they're but all they showing is just that they're pretending. I feel when my father is abt to get angry & try to mend things before he actually gets to avoid his anger. What does all this mean?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 04, 2018:

Yes, you are psychic, but you need to develop and control your gifts. At the moment, it's all a bit random. Keep a journal.

Marius on October 04, 2018:

I am not sure that i am psychic i sometimes had dreams that came to be true, Lots of deja vu and most of the time i guess things right, am i psychic ?

Adam on September 07, 2018:

I've had a dream when I was like 6 or 7, about what happened on a bus with kids from my school but I wasn't there at all. It was like I was watching what happened through someone else's eyes and that morning a kid was telling me what happened the next day when I was at the bus stop with him. I was a bit freaked out about it and didn't understand what it meant.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 25, 2018:

I can sense a feeling that someone I know or a relative of mine has died knowing it without asking anybody is that an sixth sense?

Jo on June 01, 2018:

I had a woman approach me today and ask was I gypsy. She then asked do I have a second sense, what does this mean?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 21, 2018:

No, clairvoyants are just one type of psychism. There are lots of different kinds: clairaudients, clairsentients, claircognizants, and many more.

You are referring to deja vu. It's a common thing and often, but not always, linked to someone being psychic.

Tim on May 21, 2018:

Do we or I need to see spirits in order to be psychic do anyone get that feeling that they done all this before
