Kind of hard for me to explain in words so bear with me..
I shared this with maybe two other people before but I think this is a good place for it.
One night after work, I was walking up to my 3rd floor condo.. Once I got halfway up, I suddenly came to a stop mid steps. I felt almost as if I had temporarily been taken out of the drivers seat of my mind and body… At what seemed to be the EXACT same time that I stopped, I had a random thought, not like a regular thought but almost like someone talking to me and all I could do was stand there and listen (kind of what I would imagine being hypnotized would be like). What I was ‘told’ (for lack of a better word) was that my roommate I had 3 years prior — who was my best friend while in high school but later lost touch with after moving and stuff — had died.. It was very irrelevant to anything currently in my life as far as I know; we hadn’t spoken in a year or so before that so I don’t see why I would feel this strong ‘thought’ randomly walking up my stairs after a 12 hour work day (Im fairly certain the only thing on my mind before my accent up the stairs was getting stoned and going to sleep). After snapping myself out of this trancelike state I was in, I just kind of wrote it off as a weird thought and didn’t really think about it once I got inside and went to bed.. So the same night, I was asleep in my bed when I was woken up by a loud slam. My acoustic guitar was leaned up against the wall and had fallen over and slammed face down. So I set it back up and went to sleep not really thinking much of it.. The next morning I woke up to a text saying my friend (same friend I had the thought of) had overdosed the night before and was in the hospital on life support. He apparently had shot up in a Hardee’s restroom, passed out only to fall and slam his head on a sink. At this point I was pretty freaked out and noticed the connections.. The guitar that slammed the same night and woke me up, used to be his guitar and I had bought it from him a couple years before while living with him. After 2 more days on life support he finally passed away..Has anyone else had anything remotely similar to this happen to them? I don’t really tell people about it because its so hard to explain in words and is rather unbelievable but I feel like people on here are a little more open minded..
@adamm0ss, Well I’ve had lots of little moments of deja vu, synchronicities, premonitions, but they never lead to a conclusion like that, at least not that I’ve become aware of.
However I can say with certainty that I’ve shared thoughts with someone in what I would call a telepathic experience. I was in my basement taking ayahuasca with two friends. We all relaxed in silence, listening to music for about an hour in pure darkness. One of the guys began to fall asleep and decided to go to bed, and left just myself and my friend alone. We lit an incense and it began to waft around the room. Very shortly after, I looked into my friend’s eyes, sitting across from me through the incense. We caught each other’s attention in a way I could not really describe, and every thought we had for the next 10 minutes or so was shared in both our minds. I would try to speak, but would only get through the first syllable before I could see on his face that he understood what I had not even said. And vice versa, his internal reaction barely surfaced as more than a giggle before I could understand his complete thought. By now we were both going insane with laughter and excitement because we both knew this was really happening. Nothing really significant came out of the session, but after it stopped 10-15 minutes later I knew we had experienced something special. We talked about it then, and confirmed that we really did just have a conversation without uttering a word.
So I believe these paranormal experiences are possible. I don’t know why it happens exactly, I haven’t taken Ayahuasca since but I suspect that I have it to thank for the effect. Ayahuasca is made with a plant that contains harmala alkaloids that can disable the monoamine oxidase in your brain and gut. When researchers first discovered harmine (a harmala alkaloid) they called it Telepathine because it was the main ingredient in ayahuasca, and was said to facilitate telepathic communication among tribal members.
I learned this after my experience, making me believe that the tribal culture truly did discover and use these plants for that purpose. I never really share my experience with people either because it’s something I wouldn’t expect anyone to believe without feeling it themselves.
@adamm0ss, I used to be able to tell when certain people were about to reach out to me (friends & cops). I could “feel” when a friend was about to text me and once, I too went into a trance where I was talking to a cop, who pulled me over right after the trance.
My ma and a psychiatrist from my school said they experienced similar things.
Lots of synchronicity, especially when talking to an intuitive/spiritual person. (Ex. Talking about mothers and then a song about mothers comes on the radio)
Heightened awareness of how nature is interconnected, and how it’s constantly communicating with itself
@boribori90, Ditto. I had a lover who i somehow constantly synched communication with. We lived across the damn country from each other, but 90% of the time that I would get a text, call, any form of message at all from her, it was while I was just about to contact her or at least thinking about her. I also have a best friend whom I’ve known since preschool. I can count on him for anything, and SO often I’ll open my phone to call him right as he’s calling me. Or one time, I was running an errand and thinking about when we would chill next since we live in different cities now; and I get a call 15 seconds later asking if I wanna chill, cause he happens to be in town and saw my car drive by. Just strange coincidences that definitely seem to be paranormal.
@adamm0ss, This is an amazing story; thank you for sharing. I believe many psychic phenomena’s occur throughout our lifetime but we are most often too unaware to perceive the messages. Regardless, as you said, the validity of these experience’s are confirmed through the supernatural feeling that comes over you; something outside of your body-mind consciousness. Thus, it is solely in your power if you choose to believe or not. I can not recall any experience of mine being as dramatic and notable as yours.
I’m not sure why this came up in my head after reading your topic; but I wondered what it means when you’re driving and if you intently look at another driver the majority of the time they will turn to look at you. Is this another simple moment of psychic ability between people? We don’t consciously realize how in tune we actually are.
Similarly, I have been experimenting with giving people card readings. Though there is plenty of debate on the authenticity of this trade I can’t help but witness how much I can understand others without even knowing them by experience. All things interesting to consider.
@selina, Yeah nothing this dramatic for me before that either. I do know what you mean about driving though; I always thought about how funny that was but didn’t think much of it either.. I guess everyone is capable of these things, depending on how aware we are and how we perceive these patterns.
Well nothing this intense has ever happened to me before but on the subject to telepathy I had a minor experience last week.
Where I’ve just been experimenting with meditation and things I had this idea in my head that it wouldn’t be hard to send telepathic messages. I guess there’s more to that but the point is I thought I could do it, so after school me and my friends were all pretty baked and I figured that would be a good time to try it. So I asked my friend to stand near me and he wasn’t big on meditation so I walked him through getting into a state of thoughtlessness and I focused on an object, and then I looked up and asked him what he’d been thinking and he said something completely random so I was kinda bummed out. BUT! The object was a Taco, and as soon as I finished, another friend of my across the room brought up Tacos for some reason. So I told everyone what happened and we went around the room and each of my friends tried to receive these telepathic messages, and it was pretty cool because they would get very close. Like I was thinking about monkeys and apes, and my friend said he got the idea of a rainforest, then I thought of Satan and Hell and my friend had a daydream type deal I guess where he died, then another friend of mine tried it and I thought of the words Focus and Passion and he came up saying he felt like he was on a calm beach shore and that it was very passionate. Then I thought of crayons and rainbows, and my friend said she thought of a rainbow snowglobe, and then from across the room a different friend of mine said he imagined a red crayon, which was exactly what I had in mind.
Lol, so that was a pretty neat experiment in telepathy for me that I thought I’d share while on the subject. :P
But no I haven’t experienced anything to that extent, and I’m sorry about your friend. :(
