Real Psychic Experiences

Runs In The Family, Did I Get It Or Am I Just Over Thinking?


A brief background of my history/family/experience;

My grandmother was a clairvoyant and read tarot, she is deceased however my father has told me many stories and passed her tarot cards down to me. I used to practice tarot when I was younger and also became extremely fascinated with paganism. Until now I haven't really thought about this stuff and this is the reason why...

Recently I have stopped smoking marijuana - clean for 5 weeks now, night terrors are not applicible as these don't last for longer than 2 weeks with withdrawal according to my physician (please no judgements, I had a traumatic time and it helped a lot) since then I have been able to feel when something bad is about to happen like I used to be able to and my dreams have been quite lucid and I am becoming more aware of things whilst awake.

This is my main issue... I smelt the scent of my grandfather the other day whilst I was in my bedroom - he is deceased, following this at 2.28am I woke from my sleep hearing a very loud noise coming from the room next to mine, which was my grandfathers before he passed, I also saw a 'bulb' of light float past me about a metre away from me 2 days ago and last night I am uncertain of whether I was awake or in a lucid dream but I felt a large breath of air on me, as if something went through me almost? Which made me scared as hell! I'm unsure whether this is a possible spirit or energy or it could possibly be my grandfather or i'm just a little bit mad maybe?

I am almost convinced my house contains spirits, when I was younger apparently I used to tell my father I was speaking to somebody at night and I remember a scary experience when I was younger, when I awoke with something pulling my sheets off my bed and as if something was lightly walking towards me ontop my bed... (I shared a bedroom with my brother - he was asleep, I screamed and my grandfather and father ran into the room, nobody else was in the house and it was down to me 'dreaming' But it felt 100% real and I remember it clear as day.

From what I have researched recently I feel there may be a possibility of me being an empath as well, I can usually read peoples auras and a lot of people confide their problems with me yet I feel overwhelmed afterwards as if i've sucked away their bad energy, given them my good. Yet some times when I am around somebody which doesn't voice their problem/s to me, I can just vibe off whatever energy they are giving off, ie, if theyre upset I feel upset, extremely happy I feel on top of the world.

I have open views of all aspects so please indulge me with your thoughts and opinions whether you think I'm looking into this too much or it could be a possibility? Thank you

I do agree with RevS you Grand dad was present to comfort you. With you ability as a sensitive one ability with smell has to do with the root chakra. Many sensitives complain of feeling drained. This occurs for a few reason. But the pivoting point is the individual receives a lot of activity, within their psychic centers. Helpful items are understanding energy, shielding and clearing, as well how psychic interaction affects you. 😊

Hi blackwillow,

I don't doubt ability here. Your prior 'activities' probably popped you open, but you are over thinking a lot. Flip your thinking around and focus in on the new experiences. You could learn a lot.

Why not get the deck out and pull in a message from your grandparents? Might give you the clarity you need.

your grandfather loves you very much. He is with you now trying to comfort you during this difficult time. He is offering support- he wants you to succeed. The "bulb" of light was most likely his spirit energy in the room with you. He wants you to know he is there. It sounds like you have experienced sleep paralysis where we dream we are awake while we are sleeping. These experiences are commonly referred to as very vivid.

Love and light... Always

Well, this is all very scary. I think that next time you see, hear or feel such things, you should speak to 'it' (whatever in gods name 'it' is), and see if you can get a response from 'it'. If it is friendly, speak to it, try and figure out what it wants with you. If it is, I hope not, hostile, try and reason with it (if you manage to get a response). If you can't reason with it, then ORDER it to go away. Dont look, act or feel scared. Be determined. Order it to leave. Well, if that doesn't work, then, I hope you will manage to deal with it some other way.
Best of luck to you!
