Personal Psychic Experiences

Ok, let me start by saying...

 

I believe psychic ability is real. So, now let me explain why I believe it to be so.

 

Experience #1

 

When I was a kid I was sleeping on the living room couch when I was awakened by a loud bang coming from my sisters room. I immediately knew something was wrong and scrambled to get up and started to run down the hallway to my sisters room when my Mom emerged from her room just as frightened as I. We both entered the room just in time to find my cat about to eat my sisters hamster (the bang was the cat pushing the cage to the floor). Just as soon as the cat looked up at us is when I heard a loud bang that woke me from our rescue attempt... I immediately jumped up and started down the hall when my Mother came running out of her room just as I had dreamed two minutes before. We both entered my sisters room and the cat gave us the same look as in my dream, in fact every detail was exactly the same as in my dream just moments earlier. My Mom also described experiencing the exact same thing only from here point of view.

 

I believe this to be my own personal evidence of psychic ability, I can't prove it to others but I know it was real.

 

Experience #2

 

About two years after my first experience my sister had moved downstairs to the biggest room in the house, and where my second psychic experience happened.

 

After fu%king about with my friends up stairs I went down to my sisters room to smoke a fatty. I knocked at her door but realized she wasn't home so I turned to go back up stairs when I saw her window well full of water and then break spilling gallons of water into her rats cage (she had a large rat for a pet at this time). I turned back and kicked the door in and sure enough her window well was full of water, knowing her rat was about to drown I leaped over her bed and pulled the rats cage away from under the window. No sooner did I pull the rat to safety the window broke and gallons of water came pouring in just as I had envisioned 10 seconds earlier.

 

I've had more but I'll talk about those later.

 

Has anyone here ever had any Personal Psychic Experiences? If so please explain.. in detail if you could.

 

I would also appreciate a skeptics point of view on this subject as well.

 

Thank you,

 

-Georgia

Could you please explain to me what you define a psychic ability as?

 

What about times where you thought something was going to happen and it didn't?

 

This was a little more then thinking something was going to happen and then having it come true, Asimov. it was more like watching a movie of something and then living it in every detail moments later.

 

I'm not saying I'm psychic I'm just saying I've had some strange experiences that lead me to believe psychic ability is possible.

You've had some experiences, GL, and no doubt they were real to you. But does having an experience confer an actual ability, as in a skill that can be controlled or developed, and used at will?

 

Blackmore has described psychic experiences as equivalent to visual illusions.

I have never had any kind of psychic experience (BORING!!)

 

So I'm not qualified to comment.

 

I do wonder sometimes tho, along the liens of different perception. You know, the kind of thing when you wonder if the colour that I see as "red" is the same colour that you see. Or if when I hurt myself if that hurts more or less than when you hurt yourself.

 

Or . . . If I had a dream that predicts later events exactly whether I'd see it as more, or less, "psychic" than you.

 

But, really, I'm just idly musing, Georgia Lass, I have no hard facts or theories about what you have experienced. Sounds well creepy tho', I wouldn't like that kind of precog stuff myself.

1. In mid-November 1963, when I was five years old, I dreamed I was with my parents in some western town (as evident to my childish mind by everyone wearing cowboy hats and cowboy boots and cactus growing everywhere). We were watching a parade go by. Suddenly there was the sound of a gun shot and lots of screaming. I asked my dad what happened and he said, “the president’s been shot.” I asked him who did it, and he pointed to the sky where I saw what looked sort of like a blimp but, as it got closer, was actually a gigantic loaf of “Hauswald” bread (the brand which, in real life, my mother always purchased). When I woke up and told the folks, they told me it was just a silly dream. But, they were rather astounded a week later when President Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald.

 

2. On the night of December 7, 1980, a few months after I graduated from college, I dreamed that John Lennon and Yoko Ono were expected to make an appearance at our college snackbar (located in Maryland) to get some chicken but were delayed in North Dakota. When they finally arrived, I witnessed them being shot by a fellow student whose name – in real life – is Mark Chapman. Of course, the next day we all learned that after making a run to pick up some carry-out chicken, John Lennon was fatally shot outside the Dakotas Building by Mark David Chapman.

 

My prophetic dreams have been limited to these two concerning assassinations of two famous men named John. As to what that means, I haven’t a clue.

 

I've also seen what might be referred to as "ghosts" on nearly a dozen occasions, from my childhood through my late 20's - but not at all in the past 20 years, so maybe I lost the ability or whatever. But, the funny thing is, I am skeptical of most psychic experiences, despite my own

Personal anecdotes are not proof, especially retold stories from childhood.

 

Here's a personal example: I was four years old. My father was getting in the car to go on a rock hunting trip to Nevada. I remember crying at the car because he was leaving. He was murdered that day by a drunk driver. I always remember crying that day, the day he died. Later my mother told me that I cried EVERY time he left. (Hey, I was four, she was mean and he was nice.) It was the selective memory of a child that made it seem out of the ordinary.

deja vu often gives one the feeling of having previously experienced a scenario, but it's just a mental trick.....some of these anecdotes have that sort of feel to them. However, regardless the many anecdotes one may provide, it's just your word. I don't mean that to sound rude, but it is something that can be tested and proved, and it never has. That such a prevalent phenomenon has never been scientifically proven is quite a statement.

I have had a few experiences. I shall relate just one. I was in a casino and looking at one of the automated roulette wheels that are available. I had only been playing for about a minute. As I was looking at the numbers on the machine something happened. The only way to describe it is as though the one of the numbers emphasised itself strongly on my mind. It was an experience of being mentally "hit" by it with an acompanying feeling of "Whooa! What was that!" The number was 18. I loaded the bet heavily on that number in the time I had......and when the roulette stopped, there it was. 18. I cashed in the money. The guy who was sat next to me said something like, "How you do that??" He had been there sometime at another console....and I played and left within about 5 mins.

I don't really count this as psychic, but it happened. My cat Bandit had been lost outside for a few days. On Saturday morning, I dreamed that I woke up and looked out the back window, and saw her running towards the back door. Well, guess what (duh)... I woke up, looked out the window, and there she was! Running towards the window, meowing at me. She was in awful shape, all sooty and with burned and blistered paws (who the hell knows what happened to her), and she wasn't the same for a good year after that, but I got her back. Psychic? I doubt it... I was probably just worried about her and was bound to dream of her return anyway.

I look at it this way, if little old me can experience something that should not be possible given all that I've been taught.. then maybe all that I've been taught isn't all that there is.

 

I may have used the wrong word with "ability" because I am highly doubtful of control or development of such things myself but I do believe that it is possible to experience real psychic phenomena.

As for the link, I didn't create this thread to prove psychic ability to be truth in any way, shape, or form.

 

This is more a thread about feelings, intuition and what can't be seen, tested or controlled by anything or anyone other then those who experience the psychic phenomena for themselves.

 

A place to discuss raw psychic experiences without having to prove anything to anyone. Just real people, feeling.. seeing.. what they will.... nothing more.

 

Very interesting read though.

 

I've had Psychotic experiences, does that count?

 

 

:grin: Sure, why not!

Being that there is no way to get hard facts or proof of someone else's personal psychic experiences other then experiencing them for yourself.. I can see why you would treat me or talk to me as a child.

 

Precog? Hey, I'm just that stoned chic from who-cares vill.

I was wondering why my experiences seemed to center around my sisters pets? :shrug:

 

If I were you I would find it very hard to ignore my experiences.. let alone why I witnessed such life changing events?

 

With mine It seemed that I could take a proactive roll in the events that played out.. but with you it seems like you were condemned to witness this horror whether you liked it or not. :mellow:

I've had 'experiences', that for a while, I was hard pressed to find out why I had them. It seriously disturbed me during particular times, not because any of those experiences had any great impact on me or other's concerned, but because of the frequency of those experiences, and while in a religous mind-set, I couldn't reconcile those things with my 'faith'. Some of those experiences involved dreams that would seemingly play out in some small event the very next day.

 

Just to name one of a more recent time, I had a thought pop into my head concerning my boss. We've shared an office for 9 years, so I know some of his habits, predictable behaviour and what-not. When I'm away for a day or on vacation, he has to do my usual duties. One of those duties involves a huge amount of paper work, in which there are tons of printed records that has to be corrolated to invoices. I have a system that makes it easier and so I get the job done faster. That day, the thought that I had was as if I 'knew' what he thought at that moment regarding the paper work that I was doing at that time. Just seconds after I had the thought, he came to my desk and asked me how I got through that particular process so fast. I 'knew' he was going to ask me, but why did I have that thought, especially being so insignificant, and why after 9 years did he just decide to ask me? :shrug:

 

For something a little different, but easily explained....years ago, my husband and I were going out with some friends, we met up with them at their home. When we arrived, the couple were busy looking for a wallet that our friend had suddenly found missing. He was almost frantic, understandably so, as it had a good amount of money in it. I slowed him down in the kitchen and asked him to recount his day, and tell me when he last had possession of the wallet. He did so, and I said, "The wallet is in the garbage can." He found his wallet in the garbage can. They all looked at me and wanted to know how I knew that. They were spooked by it. I told them that it was simple deduction. He had told me that he'd cleaned out his car that day, and the last he saw his wallet was in the car, and he'd thrown his wallet into the garbage with the rubbish from the car. He didn't share that with his wife, and was in such a state of panic over losing the money, that he simply didn't take the time to re-trace his steps in order to find the wallet. But for a moment, it 'appeared' to be some 'psychic' thing.

 

The latter story is a no-brainer, but I don't know what to make of all those frequently experienced, truly insignificant occurances. I wonder, if it is possible, regarding those experiences I can't explain, does it have any bearing on brain wave frequencies. :shrug: I don't know enough about that subject, have looked into just a bit, but don't have the time to devote to the research.

 

I don't play up those experiences, they are curious, but now, I just kind of brush them away from my thought and go on with whatever is at hand.

This is tragic. I'm really sorry about that...:( Such a preventable tragedy, if only people would think...

 

I have to ask: what is rock hunting?

 

 

I think a lot of us have this weird kind of stuff happen from time to time. Like when the phone rings and you just know who it is, even if you're not expecting that person to call at that time. I had a friend who, as a child, dreamed about a train wreck that had happened many years before her birth. Could have been coincidence, but it matched the actual wreck pretty well. I have my own unscientific theory about that kind of thing. :D

Maybe one year, automatic sentence, no questions asked, in the county jail would cause them to think.
I have to ask: what is rock hunting?
My father was a geologist, mineralogist, and gemologist. I guess it's in the genes. I also travel around looking for certain types of rocks and have a pretty good rock collection.

coincidence or confusion or any number of other reasons. Just because something is weird there is no reason to claim it is "unanswerable" or unexplainable.

Not exactly ignoring; just admitting that it happened and that I don't know why. Since no one in the history of humankind has ever offered a satisfactory explanation of why such things happen, I don't see any need to obsess over it and try to find an explanation. Besides, it's not like it can be controlled and put to good use. (I think professional psychics are bunk.)

 

Maybe physic experiences point to the possibility of consciousness outside the physical brain; maybe it means our concept of time running in a linear manner is all wrong; maybe it has something to do with some kind of energy connecting all living things. Who knows? Certainly not me! (Though I am absolutely convinced that it cannot prove the existence of a diety.)

About two years after my first experience my sister had moved downstairs to the biggest room in the house, and where my second psychic experience happened.

 

After fu%king about with my friends up stairs I went down to my sisters room to smoke a fatty.............envisioned 10 seconds earlier.

I wouldn't say for sure that psychic things arn't real but I'm fairly certain. The first could easily be described as deja vu, as most people experience regularly, but hey, maybe thats just how we explain it. Unfortunately the human mind is terrible at this sort of thing. We can remember certain things but others get stored wrong or in the wrong place. Police often find that witness statements taken from several people have differing timelines, colours of vehicles, etc. The second I would say was likely to be a result of this "miswiring". You heard water coming in, rushed in, saw it, and remembered it all as seeing and hearing. Excitement "from fucking about with friends" anticipation or drugs "going up to smoke a fatty" can also effect how our minds work. If we are under stress our minds work to keep us alive, thinking fast and not really worrying about memory storage. Its also often thought to be down to observation, whether conscious or not. Derren Brown, an english mind-fucker-upper, loves showing this sort of thing, predicting all sorts of things and guiding people to do things on very specific timelines. He even induced the same, knocking over, feeling the presence of a spirit stuff they do in churches with a group of staunch atheists before telling them the truth (he's an atheist) later. The mind is a very complex thing and not all it's abilities are well known. I will simply say I've seen no evidence for any for of psychic phenominon, and any that seems to work that way, is usually completely null as soon as tested without ques (i.e. partition between subject and "psychic". Leaving us with shaky witness statements, which are inherently extremely flawed.

Oh man...Cris Angel is also very good at that. He took a group of people and had them write down what color of tie the father was wearing that day, if they went out to eat or not, etc and then days later had a group of people up there and asked one of them what color of tie the father wore. She had a color in mind then he told her to change her mind and say what color came to her at that very instant. She was right about the color (and the rest of the questions). There are many other things he does to that can be seen as having psychic knowledge when it is just understanding how humanity thinks. He also was able to hypnotize an entire restaurant and people walking on the streets by just a few suggestive words written on a flyer. He would hand it to the people walking and they would drop to the ground.

 

Aaaaanyway...this doesn't mean that I don't think that people can have psychic abilities. I just don't know, but my minor experiences makes me think something's happening. What that is? Who knows.

I believe it's possible. As an adult I have experienced lucid dreams that described events yet to come, 3 plane crashes and 3 nights of me not being able to get back to sleep afterwards. I'm sure it was due to the altered state of mind, but everything felt real. I was standing from a vantage point observing the disaster take place.
