Currently, I am 17 years old and have experienced paranormal activity on more than several occasions. I'll list a couple of the things I've gone through.
Once, I was at my grandmother's house (which I'm convinced is haunted for more reasons other than this one), and I was about 10 or 11 years old when this incident happened. My mom worked the morning shift at this time which started way before my time to catch the bus. So, I'm laying on a couch trying to rest, and all of a sudden my eyes open and I see a man sitting in a chair across from me. I know he was a spirit because nobody was downstairs with me and the typical "within a blink it was gone" concept applies. I open my eyes for two seconds, and I see a man who was probably 5'7", sitting in a chair, reading an open newspaper which blocked most of his face (although I could tell he was bald), and he was wearing brown pinstripe pants, suspenders, and a white tank top. I've described this figure to all of my family members, and none of them can connect him with anyone they knew.
There was another time when I was living in a townhouse complex called Poet's Village, and my friend and I were out playing around our side of the 'village.' In between the two circles of 'houses' are the manager's office and a bridge because a little creek passes between the circles. We reached the manager's office (it's pretty dark outside at this time) and I see a fully visible, almost illuminated figure walking away from the left side of the bridge. I stopped dead in my tracks because it was odd to be able to see this figure considering how dark it was and also the fact that it looked very much so like a grim reaper. My friend saw the shock and fear in my eyes and asked what was wrong, and I said something along the lines of: "Do you see that guy down there?" Well, of course, I was the only one who could see him, and we ran back to my apartment where I repeat exactly what I saw to her and my parents.
There have also been a few times where I have clearly heard voices (and when I say voices I mean there were two different spirits who said something to me at different times) but could not see them. I've always considered myself to be a sensitive because I can feel the presence of earthbound spirit (s) and can sense things like what their gender is, approximately how tall they are, or what it is they're doing at that moment.
The reason I wanted to share my experiences with you guys is because over the past few years I have noticed that everything paranormal has stopped. I don't know if it's because I moved into a house where there doesn't seem to be much activity or what it is, but I kind of miss having the ability to sense/feel/know what or who is around me. My mom and I went to a group reading recently, and at the end of the reading, I asked the psychic medium what could be going on. She told me that it could be that I simply haven't had the time to be open to spiritual experiences and that I should dedicate a few days a week to meditation and to allow myself to have time.
If there are any mediums or psychic mediums who could possibly give advice about what may be happening or what I could do to 'get my ability back,' it would be greatly appreciated!:)
