In response to this post about my mum being able to read my mind.
She’s been able to read people since she was younger. She has a lot of stories with her brothers and sisters about sensing their thoughts and being able to say what they are thinking. She’s done it to me and to my dad… most often she just responds to something that you are thinking as if you said it out loud in part of a conversation. I’m sot of used to it, so sometimes I don’t even notice until later… hey wait a minute! I didn’t say that! Normally, she can only do it when she’s not concentrating… it’s happened right before she falls asleep or
(most often to me) if we’re driving somewhere and she’s spaced out. So not really at will.
She has seen a man in a hat that followed her around until well after I was born (I remember certain things about the way she behaved when she saw him around). She has had our relatives and friends visit her in dreams after they passed and before we knew that they were gone. And then she has had a few “experiences” being in contact with the “supernatural”.
I think she’s just more attune to that kind of thing as opposed to being “psychic”. She can’t tell fortunes or predict the future or levitate or anything. It’s not like a party trick or a power that she can command, but it is pretty weird and takes a while to get used to once you first experience it.
Sorry I know that’s still really vague… I hope that gives you a better idea at least of what I mean! If you have any other questions, just ask :)
