Signs You Might Be A Psychic

Updated on March 31, 2011

All human beings have the capacity to be psychic, but very few open their minds to the possibility, and so often bury or ignore their abilities.

Here are a few signs that you have psychic abilities:

  • Have you ever walked by a phone knowing it was going to ring?
  • Have you ever thought about someone you haven’t heard from in a while and then they call you the same day you were thinking of them? 
  • Have you ever had a dream and discovered that parts of your dream came true the next day? 
  • Did you ever know what someone was going to say before they say it?
  • Have you ever sat something down on a counter and heard a little voice in your head telling you not to leave it there because it would be knocked over, and then minutes later it is?  
  • And what about those shadows you see out of the corner of your eye—just your imagination? 
  • Do you sometimes walk into a room or a building and feel an intense atmospheric change, as a heavy oppressed atmosphere or a cheerful one? 
  • Did you have an invisible friend when you were young? (These are actually spirit visitors)

Unfortunately we have been programed from our youth to ignore these things, and so we do.  We are laughed at or ridiculed when we share our feelings with others, so we stop sharing, and then learn to ignore what we see or feel that is out of the ordinary.  All these things stifle psychic ability.  The more we exercise our innate psychic ability, the more powerful it will become. 

Here are some ways to strengthen your psychic abilities:

  1. Meditate as often as possible.  Set yourself up in a quiet place for 15 or 20 minutes a day (if possible) and listen to your inner thoughts.  Let your mind run free, but try not to think about every-day problems.  Scientific research has deduced that meditation can synchronize the wave patterns of the left and right brain hemispheres. This synchronization is thought to allow a free flow of information from the "psychic" right brain into the left brain's verbal centers
  2. Open up your mind to what the Universe is attempting to tell you.  When you have a feeling about something, instead of blowing it off, stop and listen to it.  Keep a journal of unusual or unexplained experiences.  For instance: “Today I had the feeling that I should go a different way to work, and then found out after I got to work that there was a bad accident on the route I usually take.”  Or, “I was thinking about Donna today, and she called me this afternoon.”  As inconsequential as all of these things might seem, they are all instances of ESP.
  3. Do psychic exercises with family members and friends.  For instance, try to pick up what your spouse had for lunch without them telling you.  Make a game of it every day when you met again after work.  Use a normal deck of playing cards and have a friend hold up cards with the backs facing you and then try to see what is on the other side of the card.  You will be surprised how many you get right, especially if you do it on a regular basis.  Go out of your way to use your intuition whenever the opportunity arises.
  4. Read books about the paranormal.  The more you read about psychic abilities, the more open your mind becomes open to it.  There are literally thousands of books on the paranormal.  The more you read, the more you’ll learn; and once you have a credible knowledge about the psychic world, the less you will fear it.  Even if you say you are not afraid of the unknown, at some level you probably are.  Most people ignore their psychic abilities because they don’t understand them.  Knowledge is the key to understanding. 
  5. Attend psychic workshops and seminars when the opportunity presents itself.  People who have learned to open their minds to the Universe and to their own psychic talents can share their experiences and knowledge with you. 

You will be amazed at the fact that the more open your mind becomes to the psychic world, the more often it will speak to you.  Listen to what it has to say and believe in yourself and in what you hear.  It is not your imagination speaking to you—it is the Universe in one form or another.

      You are not a freak!!! Don't let anyone let you believe that you are. Having psychic abilities makes you more special than those who refuse to open their minds to what we all can accomplish. I would suggest keeping a journal of your dreams and of the things that you receive when touching or just talking to other people. It will help you sort everything out. Don't hide your gift, use it and expand on it, and know that you are SPECIAL. If you send me your email address I will add you to my free monthly mailing list for my Paranormal Musings Newsletter. It might help with the explanations you are looking for. Send it to me at You can also go to my web site for more information and for back issues of my newsletter: Good luck, and thank God for your gift.

      I always wanted to have some sort of connection with the paranormal, but it just has never happened. I have great intuition about the natural world, but anything beyond that is also beyond me...

      Some very good info Christine. Meditation and opening up the mind are key points. To paraphrase a sentence of yours "The more you read, the more you'll learn" should be engraved over every school from elementary to high.I like your site very much and am going to read your hub about the Djjin next.
