Am I A Psychic Or Not And How To Know For Sure?

Ian Parkin is the verified author of this post.

Am I a psychic or not? And how can I know for sure? Well, for a start, your intuition has led you here right now – so that is a good sign. Because it takes one to know one, I have compiled a list of questions and clues for you that will reveal the truth.

Have you experienced unexplained nostalgia or moments of deja vu? Perhaps you’ve sensed the presence of a person nearby but when you look around, you realize you’re alone. If you relate with any of these examples, it’s possible you do indeed have psychic ability.

As adept psychics we have extra sensory perception of the world and the people around us. Often we are very sensitive to physical and supernatural auras. We have higher levels of intuition, can predict future events, experience vivid dreams and have certain special senses.   

I believe we are all psychic to some level, but for the majority of people the gift or the belief has been long knocked out of them. Educated out is another way of looking at it. Many professional psychics have grown up in a psychic friendly environment. Perhaps a grand-parent or parent with the knowledge has helped bring the extra sense out in the open and encouraged its use. But there are as many practicing psychics who have not had the benefit of caring psychic guidance and who have still managed to develop and hone this natural sixth sense. 

Some people don’t actually realize they have psychic powers until an event causes an awakening. Some natural triggers are: 

  • Accident or near death experience
  • Death of a loved one
  • Birth of a child
  • Witnessing an emotional event

Good psychics aren’t special, just comfortable with this natural yet ‘extra’ sensory perception in one form or another. There are plenty of us who have allowed the pressures of modern day living to wind us up so that our mental activity is buzzing away at a really fast pace. It can be very difficult to slow down and divert our conscious mind so that we may focus on the more subtle levels of sub-consciousness - found through the slower brainwave frequencies of Alpha and Theta.

Questions That Will Reveal Your Psychic Ability

Do you have high levels of intuition?

  • Can you usually tell who is calling your phone before you have checked the caller ID or have you been able to predict an event before it happens? Psychics have high levels of intuition and they can usually predict the actions of a person before they act.

Are you good at sensing someone is lying?

  • Psychics are sensitive to other people’s emotions and can tell if someone is being dishonest. No matter how genuine they seem, you can tell they’re false.

Can you communicate with animals and understand how they feel?

  • If you’re a psychic it’s possible for you to interact with animals and you are aware of their consciousness.

Have you had a dream or a vision that’s come true?

  • Do you regularly have feelings of deja vu? Everything seems so familiar and yet you’re certain you’ve never been there before. Psychics often have vivid dreams or visions about the future.

Have you ever sensed an invisible presence?

  • Have you been alone and yet you’ve sensed the presence of another person nearby? It’s possible you felt a paranormal aura. Most psychics are sensitive to the auras around them and they can usually feel the presence of the supernatural.

Are you drawn toward the supernatural?

  • Psychics are naturally drawn toward the paranormal and unexplained because they can sense auras that other people cannot feel.

Can you hear someone call your name even though they’re nowhere near you?

  • The power of telepathy lets psychics hear people from faraway distances. You can usually tell someone you know is in trouble or they need help.

Have you been able to heal anyone?

  • Psychics are able to channel their energy (Reiki) to the ill and help them heal.

Do you See or Hear Dead People?

  • People with various levels of awareness of people who have died are known as psychic mediums. While the dead rarely give good advice for the living, they are able to provide love and reassurance of life after death to those left behind.

In his book SynchroDesitiny Deepak Chopra wrote… "In most people’s experience, the past resides only in memory and the future resides only in imagination. But at the spiritual level, the past and the future and all the different probabilities of life exist simultaneously. Everything is happening all at once. . . . . People who are tuned in to the deeper self can access this deeper domain because this self is not separate from the universe. The Buddhists say that your “self” is an inter-being that is interlinked with all that exists. You are inseparably part of the quantum soup."

Am I A Psychic? - by Penelope Ghias (Plaistow London)
I wanted to find out if I’m a little psychic at all. I see spirit also sometimes I get this horrible feeling in my stomach its weird I feel like crying I get an uncontrollable feeling and I don’t know what it is. Usually within a day to a week something related happens. If I am even a little psychic I don’t know how to bring it out. I would love to be able to help others and spirit. 


Am I A Psychic? - by Elena James (New Jersey)
I have always been able to see things that other people around dont seem to see. I sometimes see colors or auras around people and sense when their intentions and feelings are sincere. I also get dreams of things that will happen in the near or far future. On January 11 2010, I had a dream of the earth shaking. I was no longer in my bedroom but in a dark shack. There were people screaming and babies crying. The language was not English. Every one was running out of the house when the roof began to collapse. Next day I turned on the news to see that Haiti had just suffered a deathly earthquake. 


Am I A Psychic? - by Lorena (FL U.S.A.)
Well this is my first time writing this on a psychic website. I know when someone is lying to me and I really get them. I also get these massive headaches out of nowhere and I really get creeped out about it because I feel like someone's following me.


Am I A Psychic? - by Zoie (Florida, USA)
I meditate to relax and possibly enhance my abilities. I hear voices when no one is there, so perhaps it's clairaudience. I always knew that something about me was different maybe even special, but I don't know if I am imagining it. I really have no idea if I am psychic or not, but from what I gather I might be.


Am I A Psychic? - by Rose (Missouri)
I can feel what others are feeling wither it's in person or if I'm on the phone with them of something so simple as texting them. Most of the time I know what someone is thinking about, not exactly, but I get the idea of what the are thinking about. I can feel spirits and sometimes see them. Sometimes I have dreams which come true within a couple days of having that dream. Am I a psychic or not? And how can I become more in tune with these abilities if I am?


Am I A Psychic? - by Anonymous (Fresno CA )
I've been battling with powers that I have even though I don't want them. But I am fighting with something that tells me I have them and I need to use them. It scares me. I have dreams of lotto numbers and they have come out in the same order. No I don't play them. I can be working or doing anything and I see visions of my husband winning money on certain slot machines and I tell him and he wins. I saw a lady in a salon and for some reason I saw gold coins above and below her and I just kept staring at her. She got annoyed but I told her what I saw and that I believed she was coming into money. Two weeks later at the salon the stylist said she did come into some big money. It was freaky it was a stranger and I saw it. Am I a psychic only when it comes to other's financial luck?
