mom's who are sensitives, have extra perception/sensory, all that "woo-woo" stuff?? - Page 3

post #41 of 141
This thread is very interesting. I have always felt things. I have known many times that something was going to happen, and then it happened. I also tend to be very attuned to the feelings of the person that I am talking to, so much that I can feel what they are thinking. I know that sounds odd, but it happens. Every day I answer my older daughter's questions before she answers them. She always says "How do you that? I didn't even ask you yet." LoL! It's so funny.

I also feel other people's feelings so strongly. Sometimes, that is really hard.

What is interesting to me is that it is not something that I can control. It either happens, or it doesn't. I think this is probably what it is like for some true psychics, although I am sure they feel things much more than I do. When they are supposed to prove themselves on a t.v. show, they end up looking like they are fakers. I think that happens, because they can't perceive everything -- just what comes to them. It's not a choice; it either happens or not.

I have always been curious if this is ability is something that I should try to expand on, or just accept as is. I'm not sure how I would go about expanding or practicing anyway.

Yup. That is why when people say 'how come you can't win the lotto?' I laugh. I have 2 relatives who have won the lotto on quick picks. I can't win jack on the lotto.

I'm going to reply/sub, and then read the whole entire thread.

I don't know what I'd call what I can sometimes do. It's not 100% of the time, but it's sort of like... empathy I guess? I think that's probably what I'd call it.

For example, I saw a spirit at a friend's house a couple of weeks ago and I could feel 'amused', like... warmly amused and entertained. I could tell it wasn't me, it was the spirit feeling that. I've met people and told them things about themselves I couldn't know, just about their personalities. I've touched items and felt things about the owners.

That's psychometry and a form of clairsentience or claircognizance.

I have some claircognizance that happens out of the blue, and I can call it up with tarot cards. When it doesn't work, I still have strong intuition and empathic tendencies where I sort of feel people's emotions and can tell what the situation is, but I don't always know who is who, so I will have to ask someone to identify who the key players are as I describe them.

another thing that I do, i just remembered!

I get images sometimes that mean nothing to me, but I'll pass them to the person I'm with (I can just tell it's for that person). I let them know that this weird thing I do, I don't know what this means, but here's the imagery/message I have for you. Every SINGLE time, it has been quite profound for the receiver.

Yup. I've found that when I do readings, no matter how stupid something seems, I need to tell my client because even if it doesn't mean anything to me, they'll get it. The information isn't for me, it goes through me.

Totally, and I can totally tell when it's 'me' or not.

One time a friend called out of the blue. She was not seeing anyone, hadn't been for months- no prospects, not unhappy about it, she was working on her recovery and sponsoring her sponsee, and just working, taking care of her son, etc. She calls me and says I'll never believe what she did last night.

You had sex!!!

She was so shocked, I said, "Oh my gosh, you had sex with RIKKI!" (her sponsee... and my friend didn't consider herself anything other than hetero and here she was sleeping with her sponsee who is definitely female!)

She was blown away that I knew, I just could tell, I don't know how I knew it.

Another time a girl I'd just met the night before and I were walking on the beach and I just had this imagery and I waited to say anything because I didn't want her to think I was weird. Then she starts talking about something along the vein of what I need tos ay to her so I figure that's my sign to go ahead, so I do. At first she says, "No.... that doesn't really make sense to me..." and I start doubting myself, and after a minute or two she starts putting it together and it ended up being hugely accurate to her relationship. It was really neat.

I can feel it through my whole body. It's hard to explain it to anyone who hasn't felt the same thing.

I knew another girl who got a weird twitchy feeling in one eye when she was getting information. But mine is just a sudden realization that I know something I have no earthly way of knowing, and it's the absolute truth.

There's just energy around it that feels different. It's like it's 'packaged in light', for a lack of a better way to say it. That's actually pretty accurate.
post #50 of 141
Yeah.

Another friend said she feels energy coming in through the crown of her head.

But it's apparently similar for all of us who feel it, just with minor variations.

This is exactly how it is for me! All of the sudden, I will just know something without a doubt. It's kind of like hearing it and feeling it at that same time, but its more than that -- I just know.

I'm so glad to find this tribe. I am usually very nervous and unsure about talking about my experiences because I'm not even sure what to make of them. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just crazy.

All my life I've dealt with strange things. I can usually tell how people are feeling even when no one else can. I have dreams about things and end up with "deja vu" sometimes the next day sometimes years later. I have seen ghosts but usually it's like they don't physically show themselves to me. They do it mentally. If that makes any sense. It doesn't happen very often. Usually what I've seen when I have seen things I think have possibly been demonic and/or angelic. Sometimes I know what people are going to say to me before they even say it too or who is calling before I check the caller id.

I told my DH that the Buccs were going to the Super Bowl and were going to win, the year they did it, at the beginning of the season and I told him a game or two before that they'd be playing the Raiders. The next year I told him the Patriots were going to win.

When my mom became pregnant with my youngest sister I was the one who told her she was pregnant. She didn't believe me so she took a test and turned out I was right. My step dad didn't know I already knew so when he told me and I didn't seem surprised he got upset.

I've experienced things that have seriously terrified me but I don't know if it was "all in my head" or if they actually happened. My dad is really into sci-fi and horror and my mom has always been into fantasy and fairies and stuff so I was exposed to A LOT of that stuff my whole life and was encouraged to be imaginitive.

My mom said I was always very sensitive to things. When I was 2 or so my dad let me watch poltergeist. After that I didn't want to sleep in my crib anymore because 1) the street lights had just been changed to orange and glowed right next to my crib and 2) my brother had a rodeo clown picture and I remember vividly having nightmares that they were jumping out and coming after me. Some had daggers and such. Some had blood on them. When I was around 4 he let me watch troll. And even still I sometimes have "nightmares" regarding it. I remember one time, soon after watching it, I really had to go to the bathroom and I got up to go but when I got to the bathroom and turned on the light it was waiting for me in the bathtub but it wasn't there at the same time like it was partially translucent and I could hear it breathing and sort of softly growling. I ended up sitting on the floor outside the bathroom feeling paralyzed and peed my pants. My mom says she remembers that but when she came out of her room to get me it had disappeared. I actually have a lot of experiences with that particular thing. I honestly think the movies my dad let me watch had a very strong and negative affect on me. I've never been comfortable being alone and get scared easily.

I also remember before I knew my parents were divorcing or that my dad was having an affair that I had a very vivid nightmare where I was in a house that was charred like it had been on fire and the ground was like burnt wood and ash. The sky was just red. I went into the house looking for my mom and the walls were red but I went into one room and there was this glowing green light. It was my dad and he was doing horrible things to my mom and just tearing her apart.

My experiences did seem to die down once I became a mom and my kids don't seem to be dealing with the same stuff I did as a child (which I thank God for because my childhood was scary to me.) But I've been watching some paranormal shows on tv recently with my SIL who is visiting and is really into them and it's gotten me curious about my own experiences.

One thing that did happen to me recently was while I was pg with my son. I had been pg around the same time due around the same time 2 years before getting pg with my son. When I was 3 months along they did a u/s and found everything but a baby. I ended up getting a d&C because my mom had miscarried and ended up bleeding excessively and I was scared of having that happen. I think it was the night before my d&c that I dreamt I was in the O.R. and the dr's were finishing up and they had a shoe box and I asked what it was and they said it was just what they'd gotten out of me and there was a baby's hand sticking out of the box. I cried. But I went through with it anyways. When I was pg with my son I had 2 dreams relating to my pregnancy. The first dream was that I was pregnant with twins a boy and a girl. But I'd had a u/s at 7 weeks because I was worried about having the same thing happen and there was only one baby. Then before I went and got my 20 week which I only got because dh wanted to know baby's sex I dreamt the same scenario twice only once with a girl and once with a boy. The dream was that I was getting the u/s and the tech accidently slipped and told me the sex of the baby. Well the tech did slip and tell me I was having a male but I disregarded it and told myself maybe I wanted to hear male but she actually said female. She didn't. Because of those dreams and the fact that my lost one was due the same time I concluded that there really had been a baby that hadn't made it and that it had been a girl.

Also I knew with my first the day I conceived her that I was pg. With my son I knew within a week of conception that I was pg. Not because I had signs or anything but for both of them I had this undoubtable "feeling" or knowing about it. With my son I'd actually gotten "warning" ahead of time that I was going to become pg soon. I was in roller derby at the time and quit.

I've had lots of other things happen as well. Too many to list. Oh and I too have bought a book not knowing why and it turned out I knew someone who ended up needing the information the book had to offer.

What do you do for/with/about/to support empathic children? My 11yo is empathic, much like I was when I was his age. How do I support and encourage him? Boundaries seem to be the most important thing, so that he understands he's not responsible for other people's feelings. We're also working on teaching him that sadness and hurt are OKAY to feel, and that as long as he's acting in kindness that's all he can do- we want him to learn that saying no and having someone's feelings get hurt is not a bad thing, it's temporary and loving to both him and the other person. Also just want to help him see that he's not 'dramatic' (that's what I have heard my whole life), he's just very sensitive in a high way, not a bad/sad/weak way.

Well, I went to a psychic for the first time a few weeks ago. Complete bust. I don't think she was feeling my energy. Also, I had no specific questions or worries so I don't think she knew what to do with me. She ended up basically reading my DH, because I guess SAHM are boring? I dunno. I thought that was weird b/c DH wasn't even there. Felt sort of like a gender bias to me. Like, if you're not 'working' you're not important so let's talk about DH who is making all the money kwim? Useless.

Anyway, I started reading Tarot again for myself and am debating if I want to really pursue this. To open the door again. I wish I felt like I knew a good way to harness it, otherwise I'm not sure it's worth opening the door. It's just that being a mom has brought my intuition back to the forefront again and I realize I know more than I think I do, but have ignored it.

I read Diary of a Psychic looking for insight and was...underwhelmed. Few things the author experienced were truly psychic, most stuff was too vague to really be counted as psychic. And I'm not sure I buy the idea that angels are just waiting beyond the veil to tell us that we need save our money/be open to love/other vague messages etc... I don't think psychic ability requires New Age dogma.

In terms of control the author suggest meditation which I agree, but that's a tough one with a LO around. I'm not really interested in spirit guides either. I believe there's energy out there, but not that it's there to tell me or anyone what to do or to watch over me.

I know, I know I'm a terrible psychic, but when I look at all the malarky that's passed off as 'woo woo' by 'professionals' it's inane and mostly, imo, a work of fiction. Wish fulfillment for the masses. We want to believe and thus are given something to believe in.

If I know stuff, it's because I know stuff, not because my angels whispered it in my ear.

I think I'll do the tarot for myself and use that as my meditation for now. I just don't like reading for myself because my bias/ego gets in the way too often and it's hard to read true. But it'll do for now.

I know what you mean. On the one hand, I don't feel like my information comes from me, but through me, but I don't really see or feel an angel or guide specifically the way some people say they do. I'm on the fence though, because I've been called crazy so many times I hesitate to scoff at someone else's belief, but I feel a bit like you do, why does there have to be an angel?

Some people look at it like there is all this energy floating around that we all put out and we are just able to pick up on it, which might not even require any kind of divine intervention. It is odd though, I know a few atheist psychics, but most others I've met do believe they have this ability from a higher source.

I don't think it's possible to explain everything, that's what makes it so interesting.

I hear things. (I'm not crazy, DH hears them too) When we first moved into our previous home, I was painting the walls, and I heard a distinct female voice say "Just get out." After we moved in, DH and I would hear car doors slam, but there was no one outside, and no cars. We would hear people talking outside, but again, no one there. One day, we were coming home, and it was dark. There was a armoire outside that had a mirror on it, and before we even got close to it, I saw a car brake light. Later that night, we heard two different voices like they were arguing, then later, a car door slam. When we put together what could have happened, and talked about it, it stopped. I've also heard things and seen things at our current home. DH is real big into stuff like that, and he says that some people can hear/smell/see thing from the past, even if it's not like, ghosts or something. Kind of like when someone is wearing strong perfume and you can still smell it after they are gone.
