I have always had experiences in my childhood that were unexplained. When I was young I lived in a house that this mean old man would come out of the attic and bother me when I tried sleeping. When I told my mom she asked me about him. All I could tell her was that he was a white old man and he hurt his head. He was very mad. Needless to say my mother had us moved out of the house within a month.
I have always been able to tell what people are feeling and tend to get drawn to those who's emotions are the strongest and try and help. I have been told that I'm an empath since I can determine one's emotions as well as tell if something is not what it seems. With that being said back to my original story.
I believe I can speak to the departed. When I was a teen one of my friends was hit by car. I knew about the accident before I was told about it, She came to me and told me to tell her dad a few things. I never had the courage to tell him. But when I went to her wake I saw her spiritual self. One of our other friends actually got mad at me because I was not crying or upset. But how could I be when she was making me laugh. Until this past February I hadn't had an experience until a co-worker committed suicide. I would say her and I became really close. I knew when she was upset and would bother her until she spilled the beans. Her teenage daughter would baby sit for us, we took her on trips. They didn't have much she was a single mother of two. The youngest was her daughter. The morning of the day she passed I had a bad feeling and wanted to call her, but life got in the way one, of my kids was sick and needed to go to the doctor. Well, I got the call later that day that she had passed by her own hand.
That night was the first time she came to me (I saw her for weeks after as well). She talked and told me reasons why. Her and I had arguments to the point where I would wake up sitting on the end of my bed like in my dream as if I had stopped mid argument. She also asked me to do a few things for her and her daughter. I think by opening up to her I have opened the door to more. Others are now visiting and asking for help. I also sleep walk now (I think). I wake up in my bedroom door way a lot. Some I know others I don't.
Needless to say getting no sleep. I got more sleep with my kids as newborns than I do now. Is it possible for me to have two abilities? And by me letting someone I was close to in, have I reawakened a dormant ability? I need help. I feel like I can't function. If this keeps up I feel like I won't be able to tend to my 8 month old and 4 year old properly. And could this be genetic? And if so, what should I look for and how can I help my kids?
