Psychic Phenomenon


Hi! I’ve been meeting this person during my meditations and it’s been happening on an off for the past 2 months. His presence has become stronger. Last night, I ended up in his house. I saw every detail, even the color of the walls, I got confirmation of that as he posted a photo in social media. I never met this person in my life. How is this possible and what does it mean? I feel an energy connection with him and I’m trying to find out why.

Dear Friend,

Your experience is an interesting and intriguing one. In Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramhansa Yogananda, there is a footnote that quotes Buddha as saying, “The reason to love everyone is because at some point in a past life we have had a relationship with everyone!”

In the life of Swami Vivekananda, he told his guru, Sri Ramakrishna, that he was having experiences in meditation whereby he could see people and events at a far distance from where he was.

Ramakrishna’s response to this was to discourage Vivekananda from indulging in these “siddhis,” or psychic powers.

Some people do have such experiences but they can be a distraction to the spiritual path and may not have any particularly deep meaning or message in or by themselves.

I would not take too serious a meaning to what you’ve seen. Be calm and wait to see if more is revealed to you as to whether this person belongs in your life at this time. It could be a past life connection that may, or may not, be relevant to your present life.

Be cautious, therefore, in your interpretation of something that is, yes, rather unusual but not necessarily spiritually, significant.

Jesus said: “Test the spirits to see if they are of God.” So here, test this vision by essentially asking for it to reveal more to you.

This written response is too brief to go more into this, but in person, I would inquire of you what feelings come to you; what mental or emotional associations you have with this experience or person.

Is it calm; is it clear; are the colors clear or muddy? One must be careful. Praying to God or guru for protection and guidance is very, very important both during the experience and afterwards.

Be cautious, therefore, and do not project interpretations that might not be there. OK?

May the divine light of wisdom shine upon you,

Nayaswami Hriman
