Am I Psychic? 10 Signs of Sixth Sense
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 sixth sense.
1. You Have a Well-Developed Intuition
Also known as gut feelings or a strong hunch. Your body, everyone’s body, in fact, is an antennae. 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. Feel it? Your body, your intuition knows.
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 feel it, for sure.
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.
You 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 other natural disaster. Precognitive folk are often able to foretell when people are about to die because they meet them in their dreams.
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.
4. You Just Know Things
Some may mix this up with intuition and it doesn’t matter. Claircognizants (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.
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 difficulty. You may often pre-empt 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 probably do tune-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.
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 to auric colors.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

Questions & Answers
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?
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.Helpful 25
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?
Yes, it looks as though you have strong psychic abilities. But you know that already, don't you?
When I have my eyes closed, I know what everyone else sees, and I can tell when people are watching me. I can also close my eyes and see everything around me; for example, I had my eyes closed, and I saw the road ahead of me. I could see real-time like traffic and stop lights miles down the road. Am I psychic?
I don't know. It sounds like something else to me. Being psychic usually means receiving messages (whether that be sounds, visions, feelings, etc.) from sources we can't explain. Your ability sounds like some hypersensitivity to light or similar.
I often dream of negative events and it's as if I was not asleep because I can control my action in the dream and when I wake up I feel so tired. It's as if I was really doing the actions in the dream. I also have taken note that whenever I get a strong headache and this negative emotion, something or someone will be in trouble later. Am I crazy? I find this phenomenon really scary and I opt to just keep them it to myself. Is this a sign of active sixth sense?
What you describe about your dreams is called lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is when you can observe yourself and alter your actions and change events within the dream. It's a skill which can be natural or learned.
You have a developed intuition but unless you can foresee what is going to happen to these people, then you can't help them very much. I suggest you keep a psychic journal that includes your feelings and the later results. See if you can identify patterns.
Deja Vu has always happened to me ever since I was a child. Either an event flashed across quickly - I already knew when the event occurred what was about to happen before it did so, or having conversations then I’d tell the person to say no more: At that point, I’d tell them what they were going to say, because it had already happened before. This happens a lot. Can this be strengthened?
Keep a psychic journal. The more you write, the more you will notice and the deeper your experiences will be.
