15 Signs That You Have Psychic Abilities
Updated: April 2, 2023
Are you psychic? Could you develop clairvoyant skills or become a medium? There are some schools of thought which hold that we are all psychic to a greater or lesser extent, while others believe that only some people are born with natural psychic skills or may develop them later in life.
Whichever is true, there are some sure-fire signs that your own psychic abilities may be awakening, and that it’s time for you to look into psychic development.
How To Tell if You Are Psychic
If you ever wondered if you have real psychic ability or extrasensory perception, the following 15 signs will help you figure out if you have clairvoyance or intuition.
1. Spider Webs!
No, not literal spider webs, but the sensation that you have a cobweb on your face or that something is brushing against your skin. If this happens to you a lot, it can be a first sign of spirit trying to make contact with you.
2. Corner of the Eye Vision
All of us can report occasionally seeing something weird out of the corner of the eye. If you are becoming psychic, however, this will happen more and more regularly, and the “something” you think you see will become more defined – an actual person as opposed to a vague shadow or a flash of movement. It will still be gone when you turn your head to look, but it’s a good start.
3. Spirit Dreams
Our deceased loved ones often visit us in the dream state, as this is when our subconscious minds are at their most open. Developing psychics, however, not only receive more regular visits from their own loved ones, but may also find other people’s loved ones entering their entering their dreams asking for messages to be passed onto friends and family.
4. Erratic Temperatures
Have you become particularly sensitive to changes in temperature? Do you feel hot spots or cold spots which other people don’t seem to notice? Temperature changes are one of the most common ways for spirit entities to affect our own environment, and picking up on these is a very common first indication of a psychic awakening.
5. Sensing Emotions and Atmosphere
If you’re acutely aware of the atmosphere in a room when you walk into it, it’s your psychic senses picking up on information left in the room by its current or previous occupants. All of us have experience of there being an atmosphere “you could cut with a knife” following an argument, but this is a more subtle pick up of emotions and events which are not immediately obvious.
You may also find this with objects – when you handle something which had just been held by a colleague or friend, so you get a sudden flash or insight into their state of mind? If you touch an old or historic object, do you get an instant vision of people from the past who were associated with it?
6. Random Memories
We all like a trip down memory lane, but if you find that your mind is suddenly taken back to a specific memory of a loved one, out of context and with no build up, then this can be a sign that this particular spirit loved one is around you and trying to communicate with you. The more often this happens, the stronger the sign.
7. Tricks of the Light?
A very common sign that psychic abilities are awakening is to see pricks of light in the air or to see orbs floating past you. You might also notice different colored lights around different people – you’re starting to see their aura. It’s important to rule out any vision problem which might be causing you to see lights, but if your vision is healthy then this can be an important wake-up call about your psychic abilities.
8. What’s That Smell?
The sense of smell is surprisingly useful to clairvoyants and mediums. Persistently getting a whiff or something out of place is a sure sign that you could go on to being psychic. Rule out rational explanations first and if you can, try asking for the smell to be taken away and then replaced a few moments later to test whether you really did smell it or not.
9. Who Said That?
Hearing voices is the first sign of clairaudience; the first time this happens to you it can be quite a shock, but more often than not it will happen gradually, with you not being quite sure whether you head something or not, or whether it was your imagination or not. Voices are not the only thing you might hear – it’s common to hear snatches of music where none is playing too.
10. Telepathy from Loved Ones
Have you ever sensed that someone was in trouble, only later to find out that you were correct? Living loved ones can also communicate with us across space and time, usually involuntarily, via telepathy. Such telepathic thoughts are strongest during a moment of crisis. If this happens to you, it’s evidence that you do have clairvoyance, which you could choose to further develop.
11) You know who’s on the other line right as the phone ring
This isn’t because of caller ID. We have all experienced this from time to time, but this is usually when we predict people who give us calls on a regular basis.
Some people experience this more than others, and if that is also your case, it goes beyond coincidence especially if you guessed a phone call that was from somebody whom you totally did not expect.
12) You can sense when someone close to you is in trouble
Call it a parent’s sixth sense, but most they often know when their child is in trouble. This is an ability all in itself. This feeling often goes beyond worry, because it is a persistent and intense feeling that almost always turns out to be true. These psychic connections are not only noticed in parents and children but between partners and spouses, siblings and most especially, twins.
13) You find out things by touching an object
Have you ever picked something up and just feel the energy flowing to you? It can happen! Sometimes you may feel overcome with knowledge about a certain object, like who the owner was, what its history was and how it came about. Or, you may find yourself shaking someone’s hand and finding out all you needed to know such as how they are like, where they are from and what they do.
14) You feel like you have been to a place even before you go there
Sometimes you find yourself in a new and strange place, but experience a gnawing and familiar feeling. Let us say you visit a certain city you have never been in, and go to an old building – and you feel as if everything about it is very familiar.
This often happens when you go house hunting – and it seems as if you know every hallway, every room, what the whole space looks like, how it is decorated and what the details are. This instance may be caused by the fact that you have been there before but have just forgotten it, or it may be a case of deja vu, which can be psychic.
15) You regularly tell people something is bound to happen, and it does
Do you find yourself telling friends and family about experiences, dangers and future situations that they are bound to experience? Do these “predictions” usually turn out right? One can easily content this, considering the fact that we know our friends and family well enough that it’s easy to predict what might happen to them.
However, there are “predictions” that come out of nowhere and are not based by how much you know about their personalities or their habits. It is often a very powerful feeling that compels you to tell them, and when this happens constantly, you might just have psychic abilities.
