This is my first story so bare with me as I try to recount my experiences.
Ok so since I was a little girl I have always awakened at around my birth date 3/26; 3:26AM, and I used to walk around the house and I would see spirits or people I knew were not alive exactly. Anyways, as I got older 10 years old or so, seeing them started to scare me to the point where I would run and sometimes hurting myself in my rush to get away from what I had seen. I knew the ones that made me run were bad or negative spirits. The other ones I would see would startle me but would not invoke such flighty reaction.
So after I fell down the steps once running from a shadowy figure, I prayed to GOD to take this "gift" as the church called it, away from me. These sightings had stopped happening so vividly but I could still sense spirits around me. Either walking past or just their presence in a room, but I was not scared anymore.
Lately, I have been receiving messages, I think. I had a woman come to me as I was waking from sleep whisper that I should go to Atlanta, Georgia and that I would do good there. Another time I was waking from sleep and heard walking through leaves and a guy (I could feel his breath on my ear) whisper the name "Jeff Stevens" in my ear. I even had to be to work one morning and as I laid back down to snooze some more whispered "Ms. Lee isn't there somewhere you need to be?" Of course I made it to work on time that day.
My question is am I some sort of open vessel of some sort that things come to me or like know that I can both see and hear them? Doesn't happen all the time but some places I go I still see auras of people (their light) spirits I guess. My mother always said I used to sit and talk to things when I was very young as well. I don't know if this is something I should embrace or try to banish. All advice is accepted.
