Your Defining Psychic Experiences
A Message From God - by by Judy (Whitestone, NY)
I was in Atlantic City years ago with a guy I was totally in love with. I didn't feel he loved me, and I was very sad and depressed.
I went to the coffee shop and bought a cup of coffee and sat down. Next to me, a woman sat. She told me that she was a nun and that her name was Sister Anne. She said that she was a teacher from Pennsylvania and was in Atlantic City with a group of nuns and that they were there to gamble!? She was wearing a brown outfit, and she explained to me that this was a modern habit. We conversed for a few minutes.
She told me that she had a message for me from God. She said that she knew that I was not a Catholic, but that it didn't matter. She said, " God wants to know, since he loves you, why you don't love yourself? He wants you to know that until you do love yourself, no one else will love you. He wants to know why His opinion is not good enough for you."
I stared at her. She said, "Well, I must go now." She got up and I followed. As I was throwing my paper cup in the garbage, she turned and said, "Let me bless you," and she placed her hand on my head. She said, "Look! You're glowing!" I said, "Thank you, God Bless you too!" and with that she backed away and disappeared - I mean into thin air. And then I noticed everybody looking at me - because they hadn't seen her and it appeared that I was talking to myself!
Have you ever seen a busload of nuns in Atlantic City? Neither have I. Not even in modern habits. That is not the only message I have ever gotten from God and it's not the only psychic experience I have had.
Damn, Now I Can't Be A Skeptic Anymore! - by Paul Buchholz (New Jersey - USA)
I was riding in the front passenger seat of my friend Dave's 1940 Ford with his girlfriend Linda between us. We were just cruising randomly enjoying a drive through suburban/rural NJ. Suddenly I felt very strange. I closed my eyes and it was as though I'd stepped into a movie. The colors were deeper and brighter than real life. I saw us (still in the car) on the wrong side of the road. There were flashing red lights ahead of us and something going on up a hill on our left.
This was totally unexpected and very vivid. I was startled. I opened my eyes and said something appropriate like HOLY SH*T!
They asked me what that was about and I told them what happened to me. They asked me if I was high or something and I truthfully said no. They reassured me that it was probably nothing to worry about and Dave kept driving. We just cruised along for about another half hour or so going through quiet semi-rural neighborhoods.
Then we came up on the exact scene I'd seen... there were police on the road directing us to drive on the wrong side to get us past some emergency vehicles that were there because a house was on fire up on the hill to our left. Dave and Linda looked at me with a mix of fear and astonishment, which was pretty much how I felt too. For about a week they were afraid of me, and of course I was pretty confused. Then I decided I must be psychic, something I'd never believed in. I went to the library and took out books on psychic phenomena. Some of them had exercises to increase psychic abilities and I tried the exercises.
I was going to clean up at the race track and stock market once I got this mastered! Well, the truth is I could never get anything at all to happen. Nothing! I couldn't even get a hunch that panned out. My conclusion is that I'm not psychic at all. Something that is usually apart from me somehow caused this psychic experience and it was totally random. I'm convinced that I have no psychic abilities whatsoever. I'm also convinced that on very rare occasions something like this happens to some people for no apparent reason. I would be extremely skeptical of this whole subject if this significant psychic experience hadn't happened to me.
