My mother had schizophrenia, she also had psychic ability. For example she came home and said she saw my sisters baby's face in the concrete then she said the babies dead. 2 minutes later we got a call and that was exactly the case.
My sisters and I all have psychic ability to a degree. I immediately know if something is wrong with them and vice versa. I dream if someone is going to die and it's not symbolic I am just told and they do.For example, before my mums death (cancer quite some years ago) I was at home got up and announced at breakfast to my partner that I dreamt dad just knocked on the door and said mum was dying.Then a few minutes later he did. Maybe my sisters and I have a mild form of what she had.Anyway could name a lot of experiences here. Point is I really believe there is a link. I am a very logical person but I cant pretend these things didnt happen. I am not plagued by it...but maybe mum was.If it happened all the time it could send you crazy. My gut tells me there is definatly a connection. Something is being missed with this illness. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? It's the saddest illness any insight would be appreciated.

If you believe you have psychic abilities and there is a history of schizophrenia in your family, I strongly encourage you to discuss the issue with a cranial specialist.

I am also a very logical person (top-percentile-in-my- university-logic-class-out-of-a-group-of-h undreds logical), but I've noticed similar things in myself in my family. I have a lot of schizophrenia and bipolar in my family, and while I see it as a horrible disease, I often think there is a psychic/spiritual aspect to it. My one sister will randomly blurt out things that she has no way of knowing, while my brother has told complete strangers personal things about themselves (she is more sick; thus more ransom, while my brother is more coherent). I've noticed this a bit in myself (just "knowing" things about people; precognitive dreams) and have had other people comment on it, but I don't like to give it too much weight, for fear that it is the path down to madness. I don't think you need to see a "cranial specialist" (like a neurologist? psychiatrist?), in my many frustrating years dealing with the mental "health" system on behalf of siblings, I can tell you that most psychiatrists see everything in a prism of their (crude) science and their job is to diagnose illness and prescribe drugs. It doesn't seem to me that you are ill (I have no way of knowing for sure of course, but one thing I noticed when my sister got sick was her former gifted writing ability becoming very incoherent). Anyhow, I have no specific advice, just wanted to say you are not the only one in this boat.

I see my own future alot, it's always meaningless though, which I kind've enjoy, it would suck if it was serious.

For some reason I am always seeing what is going to be on tv before it does, without any literary source I mean, I will be sitting there over and over again and the voices or my mind or whatever(I can't tell anymore) act out a movie scene or a qoute from a movie or show or whatever will be spoken, and it comes on. This again is kind've fun to do, seeing as how it isn't serious.

I can judge a book by it's cover so to speak, most of the time all that I need to do is hear somebodies voice and I know way to much about them, usually negative things, and this never happened before my disease struck, I was almost completely oblivious to such things. And it wasn't gradual either, it was almost instant, thats the wierd thing.

Heres another very interesting detail, Im chillin with the voices one day, and we speak of this often, the origin of the universe, they say it was a completely unexplainable act, the first act in existence, not to say our universe was the first, obviously not. But whatever was there, simply appeared as if a rabbit actually being pulled out of a hat. And then stephen freaking hawking comes on tv and says that yes, this is quite possible, but I know that it isn't only possible, I know for a fact thats what happened, making everything extremely mysterious wouldn't you say?

There is this thing called dream walking also, I do it on accident, to put it simply, you wake up and your still asleep, but you are awake while you are asleep and walk around, which I've heard things could be done in that state. things that could help you.

And whats called synchronicities abound.

And things, conscious things have grabbed me before, and i've even been shocked when there was no source of electricity.

You figure it out.

Empathy, telepathy, precognition, as well as other extrasensory abilities all fall under the category of clairvoyance (according to my encyclopedia). When my schizophrenia voices first introduced themselves, they actually declared me a victim of clairvoyant harassment. I've always felt somewhat of an empath, as I am able to pick up on feelings of those around me and assess the situation as such. When I began carrying on conversations with the voices in my head, I thought I was telepathic. It wasn't until later on that I experienced precognition as well, but unfortunately, I've only put two and two together *after* the fact.

Early on, when my schizophrenia fully manifested, the voices kept repeating some of the same phrases over and over, ad nauseam. They would say a lot of other things in between, but occasionally, they would get stuck on a phrase and just sit there and repeat it like a broken record. None of it made any sense whatsoever at the time -- I just thought the "clairvoyants" were doing that to harass me and drive me crazy.

The odd part is... Some of the phrases the voices kept repeating early on seem to fit situations I dealt with later on, and others continue to fit with other situations as time goes by (3 1/2 years now). Is it merely an uncanny coincidence, or was a part of my brain trying to warn me of things that will actually occur in the future? Unfortunately, I'm unable to match up the phrases until *after* the situations occur. When it finally dawns on me... I'm like, "Are you KIDDING me?"

Then again... Maybe the phrases were merely like those fortune cookies or horoscope readings -- they are so general, they could fit just about any situation. The thing is, though, each repeated phrase seems to fit a certain situation so *perfectly*. And... I can think of no other situation that particular phrase would fit, etc. But then again, I am schizophrenic, so it keeps coming back to that for me. It's like it totally fits, but I have to keep reminding myself that I'm schizophrenic. It's REALLY difficult sometimes.

I've actually given nicknames to my schizophrenia voices (a way of getting even with them, heh). I have told *no one* what those nicknames are -- only the voices inside my head have heard them. All they have to do is introduce themselves to me using those nicknames -- be it in person, over the phone, or through written correspondence -- and I would be completely convinced the voices I have been hearing these past few years are from real people. Part of me yearns for that moment, but the other part realizes it will never happen. *sigh*

I would jump for joy, if I ever found out I am indeed clairvoyant instead of schizophrenic. Somehow, I would imagine it would carry much less of a stigma.

So you don't know that your voices are real?.

How do you explain my being shocked without electricity, would that be a hallucination? Because hallucinations can't hurt you remember. And this was quite painful.

Seeing the future is possible. But it could be easily guessed what will happen sometimes like in the horoscopes and things, but when you see the future, it's kind've like a vision and then the vision happens word for word thought for thought, everything falls into place so to speak.

It is also though on the other hand quite pointless, it's like reading the last page of a book that your part of the way through. You can't change the ending and you know that it's coming.

The voices are very real to me, as I hear them plain as day. However, I have come across no physical evidence indicating there are actual people behind the voices I'm hearing. Until then, I have to go with what everyone else tells me -- the voices are a fabrication of my own mind, a mental illness, etc. I'm not happy with that particular fact, but I have chosen to deal with it the best I can.

I actually felt electrical currents, myself, at the beginning stages of my illness. I lived in a top floor apartment, and I thought the neighbors below me ran some sort of electrical wiring in their ceiling/under my floor and were zapping me with it. My voices kept saying things like, "They found tiny metal threads embedded in her carpet", "It will bring out the clairvoyance", and "It looks like restless leg syndrome." I took that to mean it wasn't actually restless leg syndrome, but it makes it *look* as if I have restless leg syndrome. At the time, I had no idea what the heck restless leg syndrome was and had to research it.

The electric shocks were real -- I did feel them. I couldn't sleep for 3 days straight, which set off the first of my psychotic episodes. The 2nd psychotic episode was preceded by electrical shocks and no sleep as well. Aside from those two occasions, I have not felt the shocks. Then again, I no longer live in that apartment or even that state for that matter. To this day, I still have no idea what was zapping me like that. Perhaps my nerve endings were going haywire with all the abnormal brain activity occuring at the time?

I've been racking my brain, trying to determine if I've experienced any *visual* hallucinations so far, and your post actually reminded me of something.

Early on, I did see tiny little pops of light about 2 feet off my floor. In my paranoid state, I chalked it up to the electrical currents my downstairs neighbors were zapping me with. I thought they cranked it up a little bit too high at that point, hence the sparks. The whole experience was really frightening to me at the time. The harassing "clairvoyants" got a kick out of it, making fun of me with comments like, "Those lights are tiny little clairvoyant camera flashes".

Thats cool, well not so cool.

You've been shocked also? Wow. Now that I think about it I suppose that it happens to alot of people.

Would'nt that be considered physical evidence.?

Maybe one day people will know, although some already do.

But hell, that would probably be a bad thing. They would probably put us in jars or something and look at it with a microscope, stupid morons.

Psychic or Schizophrenic.
It's a shame that the world around all of us is so difficult to deal with at times...I have seen allot of out of the ordinary visions and stuff that seems to come from a movie....I have voices that have come to me to talk, shadows that have followed me, awoke to a female voice saying my name that shakes me to the soul...I would have to say that anyone with Schizophrenia is predispositioned to the states of clairvoyancy, and it all will also feed the cycle of Schizophrenia type happenings.
