I have always been a relatively spiritual person, my mother is a firm believer of spirits and such things, and I have never had any reason to disbelieve anything.
My mother used to tell me about times when I came downstairs as a child telling her about people standing in my room. She would always tell me that it was my relatives, and to say hello, although how well this worked I don't know, as I have no real memories of these experience.
However, recently I have had two experiences in the space of a month that I am having real trouble explaining. The first happened while I was moving out of my flat. I was carrying boxes from my bedroom to the van outside, when I got the distinct impression of a man walking in through the front door and stepping around me. As I had 3 other people helping me move I didn't think anything of it, until I got down to the van to discover that all of my helpers were with the van.
The second experience happened last weekend. I was having an afternoon with one of my oldest friends, when I needed to go to the bathroom. As I was going up the stairs I got the very strong impression of a very tall man standing in the doorway at the top of the stairs, staring daggers at me. It made me feel uncomfortable, but I knew that he wasn't going to hurt me or anything, so I went about my business, and returned to the living room with my friend. I told her about what I saw/sensed and she was speechless, as she gets the same impression when she goes upstairs, as does her partner, although he does not get the feeling of dislike from him.
My question to you lovely folks is, am I seeing things? Or has the power/ability that my mother claims I had as a child begun to resurface?
