| | Have you been psychic all your life?
Greetings all. I just signed up today after lurking for a little while. I think it's about time we had a psychic introduction thread. This will be a place for people to share their past experiences and/or the paranormal happenings throughout their life. I'll go first.
Ah, the night terrors. Of course, this is a misnomer for what really happened. I remember exactly what was chasing me, and I was wide awake. Being a young child I had various episodes of sleepwalking and running and screaming throughout the house. One of these continues to stand out from all the rest.
One night I awoke to find a tall and terrible shadowy figure standing at the edge of my bed. It immediately filled me with dread, and even at that young age I knew it's purpose. It was there for me. I shot up and ran down the hallway screaming and waking up my brother from his adjacent room. I bolted back to him (tracing my steps) and told him that it was trying to get me. Well, it seemed to have taken off and I ended up sleeping on his floor. The next occurrence of this I decided to fight back. When I awoke to the same malevolent presence I shut my eyes and visualised a white nova of light emanating from my body. It poured into every crevice of the room and I visualised the figure vaporising. Everytime I had the slightest notion of something being in the room with me, I repeated the exercise. Needless to say, everything stopped visiting me- good or bad.
Fast forward a good ten years (at least) and I find myself discovering some interesting things about my history. I had predicted things before arriving in Kindergarten that have recently come true. I have come to find that the white light technique that I used is similar to those taught by many for psychic defense, and I knew it instinctively. I remember all the times I've voiced the thoughts of other people, despite not having any knowledge in the subject. Oh, and how could I forget being the age of twelve and asking my brother to, "Hand me the bazooka, the armor is trying to flank" (despite having no idea what that meant, and being asleep.) I have so many experiences to share, but I'll save those for future discussions.
Being a young man of twenty-one, I am still trying to metaphorically "get up" after being floored by the thought that there are others like me. I am in no way a psychic master, or even in control of my abilities. I have wanted to take my skills further, yet I still watch as opportunities pass me by. I am hoping this forum and it's inhabitants will allow me to build my confidence and face my destiny fearlessly and with love in my heart.
On that note... who's next?
