Why Do I Get Scary Psychic Visions? [and How to Stop Them]

If you’ve experienced or read accounts of scary psychic visions on the deep corners of the web, stick around because today, I’m tackling one of my most frequently asked questions…

Why do I get scary psychic visions, and what can I do about them?

First of all, take a deep breath. It’s going to be okay! I promise.

Here’s the deal:

Receiving messages through clairvoyance (psychic seeing) in the real world is almost never scary. The eerie stuff that you see in movies like The Sixth Sense has nothing to do with real psychic ability. It just sells movie tickets.

The truth is, psychic visions and images come from your Higher Self and Spirit Guides — both of which have your highest good in mind, always!

Your spiritual helpers don’t want to scare you. They just want to communicate with you, and help guide you through this human experience.

But on occasion, scary psychic visions do happen.

So, what’s up with that?!

Why Do Scary Psychic Visions Happen?

When I first started my intuitive journey, I had a psychic dream about a nightclub burning down.

The next day when I flipped on the news (tip: I learned that psychics and empaths shouldn’t watch the news!), I discovered that my dream turned out to be true.

I was upset, and left wondering why my Spirit Guides communicated that to meand if I was supposed to have done something about it.

I learned, over time, that I wasn’t supposed to do anything about it. In fact, my Spirit Guides didn’t even send me that message!

Rather, I was just experiencing energy.

You know how you can hug your friend and FEEL (if you’re clairsentient) or SEE (if you’re clairvoyant) the kind of day she’s having? You may see stacks of paper if she’s overwhelmed at work, or baby booties if she’s carrying an exciting secret.

When that happens, you’re sensing her energy — her aura.

Energy is all around us.

So, just like occasionally catching a whiff of the lady at the next table wearing too much perfume, you may stumble upon a scary psychic vision.

Those visions are NOT from your Higher Self or Spirit Guides. They’re just energy you happened to pick up on.

What to Do About Scary Psychic Visions

If you’re having scary psychic visions, it’s a sign that you need to focus on centering yourself and raising your vibration.

Here’s how to improve your energy in two simple steps:

Step 1: Center yourself

Meditating will center and ground you, and connect you with your spiritual self.

So, pull out your pillow, put on some relaxing music, diffuse some lavender essential oil, and focus on your breath. (If you need help with meditation, read this.)

As you meditate, ask yourself:

  • Is there something I need to do that I’ve been putting off?
  • Am I anxious about something?
  • Is something going on that I’ve been ignoring (subconsciously, perhaps) that’s causing me to worry?

These questions will help you connect with your Higher Self and address anything that could be attracting negative energy.

Step 2: Raise your vibration

Once you’ve gotten centered, work on raising your vibration (i.e., energy) and improving your aura.

Remember: like attracts like. So, the higher your vibration is, the more connected you will be with positive energy, and the less you’ll stumble across negative energy.

Plus, a high vibration leads to deep, genuine feelings of joy, harmony, and gratitude, so you can never go wrong by raising your vibe. You can get my top tips for raising your vibration here.

Scary Psychic Vision Takeaways

The bottom line is that our Higher Self and spiritual team of Spirit Guides, angels and loved ones in heaven have our best interests in mind — and send us information through our intuition and psychic gifts.

Any psychic information you receive from them is meant to inspire and guide you. So, if you do have a scary psychic vision, take it as a cue to pause, and return to a high vibration.

Remember that like attracts like and you’re always in control of your psychic gifts!
