Honestly I am not a particularly spiritual person, nor do I have an interest in the paranormal or psychics or anything like that. In fact I would say that was it not for my experiences I am a total unbeliever/skeptic.
So I know logically, I am not manifesting anything in my head...I wouldn't even think to make something like this up.
Yet, periodically, and in a fashion I have no control over, I have known - absolutely known - things about people that I should not or could not know. It is a completely random thing. It seems to have no relevance how well I know them, if it is a stranger, etc. It sounds utterly crazy.
The absolute most striking experience of this happened when I was about 15 or 16. I walked into a new class at the beginning of the HS year and felt, like a physical blow, an overwhelming feeling of pain form one random girl in the class. She was totally normal looking, nice, absolutely nothing about her stood out or would lead someone to draw the conclusion that something horrific was happening in her. But as the year progressed I literally dreaded going to that class because I would feel her energy and her pain, I could sense what was happening to her and it was absolutely terrifying. I could actually feel pain – her pain.
I really can’t overemphasize how strong this knowledge was and how strange. I knew what was happening to her like you know your name, like you know what your face looks like in the mirror….I actually, truly knew.
I told my mom, at the time, about this because it scared me so much, and of course she thought I was nuts.
Since then I have had similar things happen. Usually I sense most strongly when something is very wrong, but I have also known about health issues that would not be apparent otherwise (sometimes ones that the person is not aware of yet).
That is exactly how my stuff started. I could feel it through my entire body, and I knew stuff about people that was so personal and private,
and there was just no way for me to get the information through 'normal' means.
If it makes you feel any better, my family still
thinks I'm nuts, and I make my living doing readings for people.
I've seen people get the most incredible information psychically for skeptics and they still refuse to believe they didn't somehow research them online or find their friends or family to get the information in advance, or use some other method to cheat somehow. Some people will never believe it is possible for something to exist that they can't understand. It happens to me and I don't understand it,
so HTH are you supposed to be able to explain it to someone else?
On the occasions when it has helped me avoid injury, like the time I got warnings about my neighbor the murderer, the date rapist I avoided, and a couple of other scrapes, I can say this gift was definitely useful.
The times it has given me downright silly information about other people that didn't seem to serve any purpose, I can honestly say I am clueless as to what purpose it could possibly serve.
It just reinforces my belief that no matter how much we learn, we will never know the 'why' of everything, and no matter how smart people want to think they are, science can't explain away everything.
