mom's who are sensitives, have extra perception/sensory, all that "woo-woo" stuff??

post #1 of 141
Thread Starter 
Not quite sure where to put this. Not sure if there is enough interest around here to go to the tribe section. Also, a bit reluctant to even start this conversation as the topic seems to drum up a lot of negitivity and questioning when in the wrong forum. I figured that since lot of mom's around this site can relate to being criticized for things out of the "norm" it would be more appropriate here.

I've seen Tribe's for parents of children with other sensitivities but, even then it seems to be pretty vague... probably since most of the parents have to learn about it from reading books rather than experiencing it first hand.... which makes a HUGE difference in one's views and ideas.

So..... anyone fall into this category?

Curious.

I'll come back later and say more. Maybe.

We're all in tune with more than we realize. And it's not just "extra" sensory; it's being in tune with the senses you already have. Books like Blink and Protecting the Gift talk about this.

Personally, I've avoided three car accidents by just being really in tune. (One of which would have surely killed me.) Is that sensitivity or just defensive driving?

Well, I think defensive driving takes some extra sensitivity! I suppose in that case you'd be aware of underlying mood and undertone of the moment and be able to sense changes in intensity of drivers around you before it actually happens.... idk.... never thought about driving that way. Funny, one of the few times I went ahead and let my hubby take my car to the store (I hate other people driving my car) it got hit by someone running a stop sign. When he told me that it was the other guy's fault, (the guy admitted it) and said he couldn't avoid it I said, "No, I would have avoided it because I would have been able to tell/sense that the guy was going to run it before he actually did." He didn't really appreciate that answer .

Is there anything else in this sort of rhelm that you experience?

That's a good one to have.

I have some abilities but I have not had any accident warnings. I got a clear warning to steer clear of a neighbor who later turned out to be a murderer.

I did know one day that we would make a trip to the ER before the day was over, but I didn't know why. A lot of good that one was.

Most of my stuff comes for other people, or as messages to remain calm during something stressful that is about to happen that later turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Like when I was wrongly accused of stealing and fired, I got a warning that told me this was about to happen, and to remain calm and not argue. Then I was the last person employed there to get paid.

Everyone else who continued to work there was unable to cash their paychecks when the owners closed up in the dead of night and disappeared. I found a job the next day and was able to pay my bills, which wouldn't have happened if I had argued and told them exactly how to figure out who was really stealing.

yep. I'm here. I'd love to have a tribe of this.

Sometimes it's hard when you just have that 'feeling' or knowing about not going somewhere or letting your kids go to a friends or something-people think i'm being weird or something. but I listen to my gut. It's not failed me so far.

I'm also sensitive to other stuff.

Hubby thinks Im a hot mess when I talk about it so I generally just keep quiet. I dont consider myself psychic or anything like that. I just have dreams sometimes and they come true.
One time I dreamed of a trailer on a hill and it was very detailed. In the dream I dreamed my family was sliding down a muddy hill with our legs chopped off at the knees. Not even a month later - my parents took us to our new vacation home - the same exact trailer on a hill from my dream. Freaked me the hell out - I never wanted to go.
One of them is pregnancy. I almost ALWAYS know when someone is pregnant before they do. Doesn't work for me myself though. And Im not sure if there is a purpose for the "gift" but **shrug**
I dont consider myself anything. I think its more than a coincidence (because my mother has more of it than I do, just different and my great grandmother was the "go-to-gal" when it came to needing to know where you left something. I think there was even some kind of news paper clipping artical thingy that the newpapers did on her long before I was born where the reporter also was shocked. I wish I could have met her.) But Im far from claiming that Im psychic or anything.
I know I sound nuts so I will just shut up now.

Well I guess it's confession time for me since I started the post...

I can definatly say I have feelings about certain things. I read people well, generally know thing about their health, mental and physical. Occasionally I'll have dreams that come true months to years later (just silly stuff, but definatly very specific).

However, my intention for this thread was to see if anyone is having the 'other' issue I've been having for quite some time. It isn't something I talk about much so this is kind of hard even though I don't have to look anyone here in the face. At night I can see, hear, feel, smell, etc... things that aren't 'there'. It started pretty heavily after my dd was born 2.5 years ago but I do remember some things from childhood as well. These new experiences have been very confusing and a bit unnerving. Typically it is people (that I've never met) but, occasionally locations or animals. It is all unfamiliar to me. My regular ol' dreams always have some familiar thing in them so these other experiences are totally different and I AM awake with my eyes open when it happens... so I know it isn't a dream. I haven't learned to control it as of yet. I guess I have to believe it and wrap my mind around it first.

I've seen every specialist you can think of, my doctor, 2 neurologist, epileptoligist (including a 5 day inpatient electrode study to check for epilepsy that he suspected... my scans were clean with no signs of epilepsy), a sleep specialist who said I do not have any sleep disorders that could cause this, and I electivly asked to be evaluated by a shrink to be completly certain this wasn't some weird early onset form of a neurological dissorder (he said I was completly fine and although he couldnt explain why I have these experiences said, I don't have any medical reason for them related to mental dissorders). So by every doctor and specialist I have been dubbed 'normal' yet none of them can explain this.

So that leads me to think I'm.... well.... seeing.... perhaps.... the past or the dead. Thats hard to even type.

Ok, theres my confession... not sure if I feel better though.

I get it. Seeing, hearing and smelling things that aren't there can be a form of aura that can foretell an epileptic seizure or a migraine. I get migraines, so I totally get that.

But also, seeing, hearing and smelling things that aren't there are forms of psychic ability called clairvoyance, clairaudience and Clairalience/Clairessence/Clairaroma, or clairsentience.

I get some of that, and sometimes it's hard to know if something I'm smelling is because I'm about to get a migraine, or because it's trying to tell me something. For me, it's a rare occurrence that it isn't a migraine, but just enough to make it confusing.

Well mine have now been basically proved not to have anything to do with seizure as my 5 day/night study showed NOTHING abnormal in brain waves. Also, I do get migrains but, I don't and have never had auras prior to them... and they aren't horribly frequent. When I have these experiences at night it isn't just a little flutter out of the corner of my eye or a vague figure in the corner of the room. It is a person seeming as real as if an actual person had walked in. I can see every detail of their face and most of their body... occasionaly I can't see their lower legs or feet for some reason. They always try to communicate with me and they react to whatever it is that I do or say directed at them. Eventually I begin to question and they fade away rather quickly leaving me standing or sitting in my bed confused and sleepy. Sometimes only one sense is involved, sometimes a few, sometimes all as I can reach out and actually feel what I am seeing. It always happens around the same time frames. It can be frequent, happening several times per week or it can be virtually gone for months at a time... only to return again. It has been both neutral and sometimes negitive as well. They usually seem angry, confused, scared, or just plain rude. The kids are usually nice and seem to be innocent.

I don't know.... all I do know is that it isn't a medical problem. That leaves me with few experts to go to with questions.

Sometimes. Once I felt really strongly about buying a couple of anti-circ books, so I did, even though I didn't know anyone at the time who was pregnant or trying to get pregnant. A month later my older sister told me she was pregnant with a boy!!

I try to be as "in tune" as possible.

Exactly. See, that's what I'm saying. Once you rule out the medical, then you're left with the paranormal.

In my case it's difficult because I have both and I have to sort them out. I just found out the phantom smells were a form of aura, and I have those sometimes, but other times they're a weird clairsentient thing.

The difficult part is finding places where I can learn more so this can be a more positive thing for me. Also, when these things happen I have no idea why the info is coming to me and I can't make out what people are saying to me. It sounds like hearing someone in the hotel room next to you. Clear enough to tell it's English but, muffled enough that I can't understand. And it's all mushed together. No normal breaks in sentence or even words it seems. So basically it happens and I can't do anything further because I have no idea what the purpose or intent was. Confused.

Do you have more than the smells?

It's so nice when things in life seem to fit together. It really reminds us there is intent in the world beyond what we have to conjure up ourselves. Once you notice things working this way I think it happens more frequently and just makes life a little easier in general.

yup. sometimes I just know something that I have no way of knowing through normal means, like I'll just be talking to someone and suddenly I'll know something about them that turns out to be true and secret.

Once years ago I was in the breakroom at work talking to my boss and just suddenly knew he was behind the series of thefts that had been going on at work. Eventually our entire division was shut down because they never got a handle on the losses, and months later I ran into someone who told me all about his own involvement in the scheme and confirmed that the boss was the ringleader.

Sometimes I know stuff that doesn't seem very important but it's kind of amusing. I once did a reading (on request) and asked an acquaintance if she had money secretly put away for her daughter in a trust and she got freaked out because she said nobody knew about it. She couldn't believe I picked up on it. Another time I knew a woman's boyfriend was an animal rights activist who went around letting lab rats loose and things of that nature.

I fall into this category. I smell things, see things, hear things. I have since a young age, so I don't concern myself with it. I tell people about it and don't attach to what they think about it. I also have dreams and when I dream about people, the dreams are to be taken seriously. I always share with the people I dream about and I've found that my dreams "come true".

I have this ability to see into people's futures. Nothing too significant, but I can "see" young people as old folks. I can know ppl are pregnant before they tell anyone and sometimes before they know themselves.

I see "invisible" entities. I have conversations with what I now realize are my spirit guides. (Took me a while to meet any of them, so I had no idea who I was talking to all this time. LOL) I read energy and always know exactly what sort of person I'm dealing with before the person even opens his/her mouth. Some ppl get mad at me b/c I know them better than they know themselves.

What, exactly, is the purpose of this thread? (Just trying to understand.) Are we just sharing and supporting each other?

I know that in my life, seeing "dead" people, etc. is not a big deal. I try to discuss this with all sorts of ppl and I've found that many ppl have done this. One of my friends sees auras. I love that. I have to really concentrate to see my own aura, and, of course, it changes over time. I "see" better with my eyes closed. Darkness is my friend.

Peace

I think this type of thing is more natural than most make it out to be. Two authors you should check out are Carolyn Myss and Doreen Virtue, both these women are very open about their metaphysical gifts.
