Id like to share my story with you all and hope to find some answers to the questions in which I have about my experiences. It all started when I was 15 years old. Id never encountered or even thought of the spirit world or ghosts until my father passed away in November 2003 when I was 15. Since then my experiences have been countless and none the less terrifying but as I have grew up (now 26) I have realised I may have a special gift and so the gift has grew with me and has became less scary over the years.
My grandfather on my mothers side was born with a cap and veil and was able to see, hear and speak to the spirit world. My mother has told me many stories about things that happened before I was born but the gift has now passed and I think has went to me but I believe that it was triggered by the passing of my father.
Soon after my dad had passed I was always able to feel his energy around the house, and often in my bedroom I would feel him. I remember one time sitting in front of my bedroom mirror doing my hair and felt him touch my foot (I was knelt on my knees doing my hair). Lights have switched off and on in my bedroom you name it, it has happened. I remember I was minding my mothers house a few years back as she went on holiday and as I was drifting off for a nap I felt someone kiss my cheek, and on numerous occasions I have seen shadows standing my beside my bed at night just watching me but the energy doesn't feel bad so I'm pretty sure its a family member. Also I seen the shadow stand in my mothers kitchen one day and straight away I knew it was my dad and this was later confirmed by a trusted medium who knew nothing of the event and was able to tell me.
Lately though I have started to hear people speak to me in my ear, now when I say speak I have only heard female and male voices call my name, sometimes almost shouting 'Sinead' in my ear and these only seem to happen when I'm drifting off to sleep so I'm in a meditated state off mind (still conscious but sleepy) I recently was about to drift off and heard a female voice say 'isn't he beautiful' about my 3 year old son who lay beside me.
I have had a very bad experience with my sons father and so we don't speak or contact each other anymore but anytime he was around or close I would get the strangest 'butterfly nervous' type feeling in my stomach and I felt like spirit was telling me to stay clear because he was around. I could go on forever with the amount of events that have happened but I won't take up anymore time.
Are these abilities? Am I psychic? Would love some advice on this? Thankyou x
