I experience ESP every single day...

And I hate it. It has almost come to the point where it has ruined my life.

It's funny though, I'm going to let this be a large stream of consciousness post, but I'll keep it in order as best as I can.

Everyone has experienced synchronicity in one way or another. For the longest time, whenever such an event occurred I usually just shrugged it off. The common one of "thinking about a song" and then it playing on the radio was never convincing to me.

About 6 months ago, I started experiencing many of these asynchronous events a day, I'd think about someone, see them, etc. I would normally just shove it off, until it would happen 10-15 times a day. With different people, in different situations, in different places. All the time. It became to the point where I would know where and who I would see.

I thought it was neat at first, it felt like I had acquired some precog foresight or something, and then everything went downhill after that.

I started actively trying to communicate with people telepathically. I have never had any actual evidence of information from my mind being sent to someone elses, but I have had the most interesting of coincidences happen since that time.

As strange or unconvincing this might sound, I'm going to give it to you like I see it: Whenever I "swallow", whomever I am thinking about, or trying to send a message, coughs. What???? It's not swallowing though, it feels like I'm swallowing, but I'm not. It's like theres a muscle that I activate somewhere in my throat (I want to say part of the trachea).

That last paragraph is why my life has been a living hell for the past 6 months. I've been sitting here trying to convince myself it's all an illusion, that what I'm seeing cannot possibly be true. I try and find the right person to explain this too, but I feel like I come off sounding insane/schizo. I'm not.

I've been able to learn, indirectly, what I'm doing to people. I feel horrible because it feels like I'm making these poor people cough and cough and I can't help it.

It's very easy to tell (for me), when someone is coughing because of an established metaphysical link (best way I can describe it) with myself, or because they have something stuck in their throat etc. The pitch in their voice, the way they talk, etc gives it away.

The first time that I actively tried using this ability for my own benefits, or whatever you want to call it, the coughing telepathic powers, was at a poker game. I got some insight into what physiologically is happening to people. One such example was I bluffed into a person, and just thought "fold, fold fold, fold please fold", and I "activated" whatever muscle I talked about earlier. I heard what I thought sounded like a crack, everyone at the table seemed to flinch at the same time, the guy folded his hand, and the person sitting next to me goes "man something just came out my nose, don't know what the # it was."

At work: "There's this constant tickling in the back of my throat..." - said to me by an employee after I tried it around him.

At a party: "have you ever had that sensation of tickling in your nose?" - said to me after I had been talking to/flirting with/ESPing with a girl. Needless to say I seemed to have established a strong connection with her as she didn't want me to leave her. Plus she was sober!

I have tons of these stories that I would be willing to share, as I feel whatever I have "discovered", must exist. I've tried convincing myself for the past 6 months it doesn't. It would put my mind at rest, but every day I am re-affirmed at what I have discovered.

Does anyone else experience this? I wish someone else did, it's hard explaining this to people who do not understand.

thanks for reading.

Okay first off all I'd like to say don't hate this ability. Try to play with it and you may be able to direct the energy to something else like reading a mind.

Don't hate yourself for being different.

You know how lucky you are to have a psychic ability?

Second, when did you realize this started and how, etc. Mainly how. was it accidental or what?

[edit on 1-6-2008 by Trash can]

I'm sure lots of people do experience this; search around the paranormal forum and you might find a thread similar; I read one.

Jbalon, I think your ability is fascinating. I'd love to hear more about it.

I have a sort of connection with my youngest daughter. It is so strong at times that I have to be very careful about the thoughts I have about her. It sometimes feels as if I am her ventriloquist pulling invisible strings. Very eerie.

Well I'll try and explain how this came about as best as I can...

The very first time this happened was, I was over at my friend's house. It was myself, him and his girlfriend. We were watching a movie, and I heard a pop in my ears and a deep sense of empathy ran through me. To the point, I could just start crying for no reason. At the exact moment I heard that pop, my friend started hugging on his girlfriend.

I definately thought this was weird because I had never felt that strong of an emotion for no reason. We weren't watching any movie where I would feel such a strong sense of empathy. I told my sister about it and she didn't really believe me, so needless to say I haven't told her about my recent problems.

After that, I started experiencing the constant synchronicities, then the coughing etc. As of now, the synchronicities still occur, but they don't occur as often. Why? Because I barely leave my apartment except to go to work. It's almost like I've become agoraphobic because of it.

I think my roommates know something is up. Of course, they've had to stand the brunt of it as it feels like [whatever I'm doing] is totally out of control.

Heh this probably didn't help much. It's a little hard to explain. I'm more of a question/answer person. I just wish I could find someone who experiences this as often as I do.

If you can influence people at a poker game or otherwise influence games of chance...Please u2u me!!! I will stake you and we will become filthy rich within a short period of time. I'm surprised you haven't already made a foray to the casino's and capitalized on your gift.

posted on Jun, 1 2008 @ 05:46 PM
its all a natural ability its just a case of re-membering and undoing the progamming through society pushed upon each of us

posted on Jun, 1 2008 @ 06:40 PM
So, [eerk, aha] it was [snork, gasp] you who made me [cough, cough] inhale some rice the other day. (Just kidding)!

That's fascinating to find out you could connect with people just by thinking about them. I tried several times but don't know if I've succeeded in influencing my expectations for the outcome of any event(s).

posted on Jun, 1 2008 @ 06:51 PM
It's not like I can mind control people and have them fold the nut hand or whatever. I also don't live anywhere near a casino, but later this summer I'm going on a cruise (yay?), and will definately try it out there.

I agree with you serin, I believe everyone can do/experience whatever I'm going through. I just wish I knew exactly what it is I'm doing.

Some days it's really really bad, and other days I think "yes it's done! No more!" Of course that's not true, it always comes back.

You know, it's kind of funny. I've always been obsessed with the paranormal all my life. (ET was and still is my favorite movie). My mother recently told me that my great-grandmother had an interest in parapsychology especially ghosts. I guess the interest in the paranormal runs in the family.

When I started meditating, intent on figuring out how to do telepathy, about a year ago, I would always get this strange feeling of "you won't like what you experience" or "you'll never be the same again" It's really hard to explain in words. I never specifically ever heard voices [as I said before, I'm not mentally ill], it was as if my brain was prepping my mind and body to be prepared, if I really want to figure out telepathy, it's not going to be an easy task.

I know this all sounds ridiculous, and it's the reason why I haven't told anyone. I've browsed the internet for a forum I could post this on, and I chose this one because there seems to be a ton of skeptics, as well as believers here. I need some skepticism, because I sure would like this to be all a figment of my imagination now.

So far, all I know is that I have activated some sort of ESP. That's exactly what it is, extra sensory perception. It's not telepathy (yet), it's not telekinesis. Whatever it is, I've tried to prove myself wrong just to put my mind at rest, but every single day, I'm proven that whatever I can do is real. I just wish I knew what I was doing, and what positive things can come out of it.

So, you save money on booze and rufees? Dont mess with people's minds
Use you powers for good and not evil!

Not exactly. It's not like I was trying to send telepathic messages "You will have sex with me." It doesn't work like that. At least I don't think it does. Did you not read any other parts of my post? I never tried using this for my own gain except at a poker game once. And the only reason I quoted the party was because it gave me insight into what the other person is experiencing when I do this. Not to showcase that I went to a party and starting messing with people's minds. I don't try to "mess" with people's minds.

many years back when i was in middle school, i was fascinated with the concept of telepathy and telekinesis [probably from watching too much star trek TNG], and i asked a teacher i respected at the time about it. he told me that phenomena existed but only via demonic means. he basically said that demons can hear your thoughts and then will move objects when commanded to. "so don't even try!!"

i was taught a private school education....lucky brainwashed me.

where was ATS back in the 90s?? i needed you!

but to the OP, definitely do not think it's a curse. people mislabel it as both coincidence and fate. it's neither. it's you. it's me. we have this capability to control, to mold our life.

when humanity does not understand something, we attribute it to the gods and goddesses, shrouded in power and mystery. when the pieces start falling into place, we realize that attribution is misplaced. we realign our whole life to reflect the truth. inside the human mind is the power.

OP, you are exactly where you should be.

i forgot to mention the cough!

that's really really interesting, the correlation between your ESP and people coughing. so very specific and exact, it would make for a good short story piece.

not saying i do not believe you, i just like specifics. coughing is the body's natural reaction to a foreign object, phlegm, choking, or breathing in something potent. it's to try to remove whatever should not be there. it seems to work logically that if one is trying to give someone a telepathic message [energy], that one's body may initially reject it. why coughing, and not sneezing, farting, or belching? i do know not. the body gets used to most everything over time.

I am in no way denying psycic abilities

could the "psycic" sense also be just another deep "instinct"

posted on Jun, 6 2008 @ 09:17 PM
doesn't it seem strange that this guy just joined this month ?

his text is filled with I's. This brings me to the conclusion he is an attention seeker. perhaps this was told to me by an ancient tibetan monk. perhaps not.

If you do not question everyone and thing you may be lead blindly to the pits of fire.

just remember a large amount or ATS members/lurkers seek to deceive others for some weird gain. It happens all the time and you always get the people who just seem to not question a persons story and blindly accept it as truth.

I don't believe you have any ability other than to deceive a small number of people. Prove me wrong then Uri.

I know i shouldn't fully believe...
but of course there's still a part of me that wants to be a part of something bigger>> some special secret i could understand that most others can't....... like comunicating intellectually or something...... but sometimes we need to realize that we're already special enough

LOL)))) but,.....
can you give us proof? like video camera random people coughing or something?
what did you do to gain this ability if it is real

I would say use your ability, go to the casinos and get loaded but I have had strange experiences that ended up scaring me away from a possible gift. After reading books on conscious and lucid dreaming I had attained the ability to control myself in dream situations and that was really great and fun and I also used the lucid dreaming meditation techniques to have out of body experiences(I found that it takes a lot of patience, is time consuming and hard to control). The problem is a few years back I was meditating for the purpose of having another out of body experience but every time I felt I was about to cross the threshold and leave my body, I would hear a loud popping sound in my room. The lights had been off so I searched the room for the noise and found it was a plastic creatine container being squeezed! tapping and knocking did not replicate the noise, it was only when I squeezed the container that the noise was similar. I returned to my bed, turned off the light and tried once again to attain an out of body experience, 20 or so minutes later I felt so close to leaving my body when once again the loud popping noise happened again. I did another check, realized that something about attempting to leave the body was affecting the plastic. I have not tried to leave my body through meditation for over 5 years now, I just don't think I can do it anymore, mentally moving things is frightening because I never believed in telekinesis it is simply not supposed to happen, I wonder if I mentally sucked the air out of the room or if I might of put pressure on the container, anyway has anybody else experienced a similar situation? I would love to hear about it and who knows, if this is controllable maybe I'll try again someday but the randomness of it bugged me out, I recommend taking salvia or '___' to leave your body, it is much easier

I have experienced some of what you are talking about but in different ways.

When the phone rings I almost always know who it is.

When someone texts me I know who it is.

I know I'm about to see someone before I see them.

I know someone is going to say a specific thing before they say it.

No, you are not crazy/insane. I'm not saying I have ESP abilities but I would like to say so. I would like to hear more about the coughing thing that is cool.
Don't feel bad about it. You can't really help it can you? Try working with your ESP abilities so the coughing thing doesn't happen, if it bothers you that much. I recently read something about dream "hopping" and I tried it. I was trying to tell some one to contact me, and they did. Maybe it worked, maybe it didn't. You should try it. In life I find it fun to put obstacles in your daily activities. It makes things more exciting. Good Luck!

Contact members of university departments of physiology and neurology and whatnot. Let's turn this into some good science.

It has been studied by the Stanford Research Institute fairly extensively.

Use this site when confronting skeptics. Shuts em up quick.

I 100% believe you because im really tripped out right now. im not on drugs or drunk I mean something crazy just happened and I'd like to share so hopfully you don't feel so bad so much. so im sitting there on myspace, and I dunno why but my whole body tingles, and I just start bawling and bawling. a few seconds later 2 ambulances and a fir truck drive by followed by some police. I dunno this make you feel a little bet less abnormal but its making me feel weird. im feeling perfectly fine now about 5 minutes later. I've read all this post so im gonna say that im not here for attention, im trying to learn about what might be happening, I randomly start crying all the time. and I can tell where people are just by closing my eyes and thinking about them, but it only seems to work for my close friends and family.
