I like this post, but

I like this post, but couldn't some of the criteria listed above be the result of an over active imagination or co-incidence?  How can you tell the differance between those and true psychic ability?

That is a tougher question than you may think Red Don.  I have wrestled with this for many years.  I would see figures and items appearing in front of me on a regular basis, usually just following a mild headache, or a feeling that something was coming.  But were they spirit....I don't think so.  Were they hallucinations of some kind?  Possibly, though the odd few were shared.   Was it clairvoyance or psychic ability?  I'm not sure.  How are these things clearly defined and is there a way of truly determining and proving psychic ability.

 Have you ever had a head scan of any sort? I'm just curious that your visions are accompanied by headaches.

No I haven't, which might sound strange, but seeing things like this was semi normal in my family which included several spiritualists.  It was just accepted that I had the "gift" ... whatever that means.  The headaches were only mild and served more of a nudge that something was going to happen more than cause any pain.  Maybe I am a prone to EMF fields or some such.

I had the experiences on a regular basis for about eight years, though now my life has calmed down, both at home and professionally I don't tend to have them.  Alcohol seemed to stop them as well :)  It has been ten years since they died down and I don't miss them.

I had these experiences but I don't know whether they were supernatural or not.  Fair enough, but I am drifting more towards them being some kind of induced hallucination rather than supernatural in nature, eventhough I was in an environment that treated them as spirit I tried viewing them logically.

Other people will be having similar "clairvoyant" experiences, but what convinces them that they psychic experiences?

hi all withreference to the

hi all withreference to the questions asked the answer is yes to most of them am I mad or do I have some sort of ability? I often know when things are going to happen before they do and not in a coincidence sort of way its strange trying to explain to people who dont understand, the most apparent thing I feel is other peoples feelings worry, pain anxiety and I can often tell which person its coing from down to a close friend where I felt surgical procedure while it was happening not the whole thing but the time she went to theartre and the pain she felt and when it ended, I do think I can connect with spirits but sometimes im not sure if its all in my head ? Im not sure but I think there has been too many coincidences for this to be wrong

Re: A simple test for clairvoyance / mediumship etc

I consider myself to be psychic as I tick nearly all of your boxes - I have had many experiences with seeing deceased persons, foreknowledge, etc. See my replies under NDE's and Hauntings
When I was eighteen I was co-erced into going to a Spiritualist Church where the old lady who was the acting Medium pointed to me and said that I could do what she was doing and probably a lot better.

I can't say that I have used this ability as I have had it as far back as I can remember and have sort of taken it for granted and have often been annoyed by what I call 'thought
intrusion' which I am adept at ignoring. It was not until I was about twelve years old that I found out that not everyone has this ability.

If there was a simple test for clairvoyance or mediumship, wouldn't it be scientifically proven and accepted by now?

 I can answer some of those questions with a "yes," but I still don't feel I am a psychic. You see, the answers to these questions are not in the affirmative at all times. There are times when I feel so dumb and overworked, I can't even see the obvious, let alone a movement from the corner of my eyes.
