this is my fathers story:

i was at a friends party and i didn’t know many people so i was just having random conversations. i started talking to this short bald guy he looked indian or something like that. As we were talking i ask him if he wants a beer and he says sure. I reach over and grab the beer and hand it to him, our hands accidentally touch and he just stares at me as if my face turned horrific or something like that. Once he realizes he has been staring his expression turns into awe. Then he gets closer to me and says “I need you to pay attention to what i’m about to say. In a year or so your life will change drastically and you will experience extreme pain. You will never look, feel, or be the same. You have the power to chose whether or not you’ll see another day of light.” With this i was left in confusion and a little irritated so i gave him the worst look and walked away. When i turned around for a second glance, he was gone.

A year passed and my father was at a bbq and the propane tank exploded. He had 3rd degree burns on 70% of his body. He then was diagnosed with leprosy. He was a corps. All the doctors were telling us that it was time to say goodbye and he wasn’t going to make it. But months went by and fought it and he pulled through.

Usually i’m in utter disbelief but i kind of do believe there are people with that kind of power.

What do you guys think?

Clearly from your dad’s story there is evidence of psychics. That’s one of the
craziest stories I’ve heard, gave me chills.

I think many people are capable of having psychic experiences, all with different strengths. I’ve had one or two, but nothing really serious. Then there are the people like the guy your dad

There’s this whole mysterious realm of chakras, psychics, deja vu, Law of attraction, and gut feelings that I can’t wrap my head around. I don’t know what it is, but I think there is some underlying phenomenon in life that needs to be clarified.

@mcr513, If we figure it out, the mystery is gone. But I agree there should be some kind of acknowledging of it. I love psychics, like watching them amaze people. We have a local guy who does readings. I think we find people for a reason, and this guy maybe found you. If someone told me that I would worry about it all the time. Lol. Im happy to hear he’s okay. this is a crazy story to tell the kids

In my opinion, people who believe they are psychic are wishing they will be accepted and trying to give themselves some attention.

Psychic : Psychotic

anyone else see the resemblance?

One thing I remember from high school, a girl sitting behind me in class asked for my red pen, I turned around and gave it to her and she said “how did you know I needed a red pen?”
That was strange.
This other time I was playing Rock and Roll Racer on the Sega, I recommend it, and a spoon jumped about 3 inches off the table next to us, we just looked at each other stumped.
But I do believe there are energies or something that you can get impressions from, and some people are tuned into that like those detectives on tv are tuned into spotting clues on a crime scene.
Perhaps there may even be a scientific explaination like cause and effect is about to manifest in a certain place, I don’t know.

Anecdotal evidence isNt really substantive to hold up the argument of people being psychic.

I had a similar experience to your fathers, which blew my mind in the relation of how it happened, almost.

I believe there are people out there that know things we don’t, for the longest time I was skeptical until it happened to me, and the experience blew me away so much I am left a believer. Of course there are those who claim to be psychic, but the ones who ARE are…tuned into a frequency many of us ignore.

I’ve always had a theory that we are all connected through energy, that we stem from the same energy we share, and that these people have managed to connect to that – and they can see.

I’m glad your father decided to fight through, and that he is here with you today. [:

@mcr513, i think you are right it should be clarified. it’s crazy to think that there are people with such great gifts. But I’m glad you enjoyed reading. To me the story seemed to creepy to be true. Something i would read off creepy pasta.

@birdmannan, there are people who want attention like when you see a palm sign outside peoples houses. But how about those who don’t advertise it? Be a skeptic all you want but don’t be so quick to judge.

@trek79, first story seems pretty weird. but the spoon sounds more like paranormal.

@alexa, i’d like to hear your experience.

@flordestrozada, Hah, okay.

About two years ago I was living on base out in Yuma, a string of rather shitty events put me in a strangers military housing. I ended up becoming close to the family over the period of a few days. The girl’s father who lived with this specific family on base kept his distance from me, and only me. Every time I walked into the room, he’d instantly leave. I thought that something about me made him uncomfortable so I kept my distance, until the second to the last night I was there. I couldn’t sleep, I was sitting on the couch smoking a cigarette, and he was pacing around outside and then came inside and looked at me and said “I can’t do this anymore, we need to talk.”

I panicked. I was confused, I thought I had done something to offend his family, but when he started talking it was a whole different thing. He said to me, and I remember this conversation as if it were yesterday “I don’t care if you believe anything that comes out of my mouth, I don’t care if you believe in what I’m about to tell you, but what I have to tell you has been driving me crazy and I can’t keep my mouth shut any longer.”

I was confused, I didn’t say anything, and then he started explaining to me my life. From the abuse, rape, family, everything. Now, I must, must MUST reiterate the fact that I had NEVER met this man until a few days earlier, and I’m not one to run around talking about my past like it’s a fucking million dollar movie.

He was telling me that this darkness I was holding onto was going to destroy me if I didn’t explain to my fiancee at the time what had happened to me, if I didn’t reach out for help, that he wouldn’t understand, and he never would, but that telling him would make him realize why I was so gone. That in a year from then I was going to make a move that would change my life forever, and that I’d finally find something I’ve been looking for since I was born. That my life up until that point killed him, and he started to cry telling me “The things your father did to you hurts me, I can’t imagine how anyone could do that to their daughter, I can’t believe they did those things to you.” He refused to touch me, saying that the energy I was giving off was too strong, too overwhelming. He kept eye contact with me up until he mentioned my mother, in which he grew very cold. He informed me that in a few years she’s going to fall seriously ill to cancer, and that when the time comes I need to make a decision about talking to her. Then our conversation ended. I asked him how he saw the world, and if there were more like him out there. He said the way he saw things weren’t like an average person was, that he doesnt see people he sees their “life force”, he sees what makes them alive. And that he had only met one other person like him, and he doesn’t think he’ll ever meet anyone else with the same ability.

I left two days later. I moved a year later, and came into a family I had always dreamt of having.

My mother recently has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and has a year to live.

My past destroyed my relationship with my fiancee after I explained it all to him.

And I haven’t heard from this family since.

I don’t care if people come on here and try telling me that because someone told me this, from me thinking on it it happened, that I’m acting superstitious. I brushed that night off until I realized everything started happening that he spoke of. And since then I believe, whole heartedly, that there are people out there who have a grasp on things deeper than we can ever, ever understand.

@birdmannan, that’s not really true. Most so called “psychics” look and act like nutjobs because apparently they really absorb emotional energy differently. Emotions are involved for sure. And I’m sure they weren’t “born” like this, something must have happened to them to have that extra sense, something deep and permanent that seems to be true about every human. :)
