First off, I would like to say this is my Pen name. My actual first name is Adam, you may call me either. Also, my pen name is not "Are-tine", it is "Are-tih-Nay" (I get bugged a tiny bit when people pronounce it wrong... No worries though.)
I am not entirely sure when I started to notice that I have had psychic abilities, but according to my mom, I saw my grandfather's spirit in my house whilst he passed away in the hospital. I was three years old then, and I lived in Washington then. Now, currently, I live in western Oregon.
I do not remember anything of my life before four years of age, but I do remember that sometime around nine years old, I saw my first UFO. Now, I know it may sound a little crazy, but I feel homage to this site; it is the only good place that I have found to really express my abilities and such. Also, it may seem like this "UFO Sighting" has no relevance - I am getting there, please be patient.
This UFO I had noticed at a coastal hotel/motel, at I believe around 7PM. It was a tiny rotating dot out in the distant horizon (beautiful sunset, as I recall, as well). Of course, even though my parents had seen it when I pointed it out to them; they didn't believe me (but I thought that my dad had different feelings). It was only later that night, I had awoken to what felt, to my best description, as an "energy surge". It was as if you had an enormous static electrical charge within your body.
I looked out the window, and, the UFO was no less than 50 feet away from the window. Literally. (I would have said "ten" or "twenty" at first, but thinking realistically, and upon the latter day's examination, it was no less than 50.)
It was hovering, rotating silently, in one spot not moving in any direction. Blinking green, red, and white lights in no particular pattern. I am not sure what it was doing, because low-and-behold, my dad wakes up and pulls me away from the window about twenty seconds later, asking me what I was looking at. I told him, "A UFO", and he looked out the window as I did the third time. But by this time (as I thought I had seen it leave, out of the corner of my eye, right when my dad pulled me away) it had resumed it's "gray rotating dot on the horizon" appearance.
Ever since then, I've had Premonitions. Not many, maybe 5-7 on average per year. I am not sure whether or not the UFO, and being nearly able to actually touch it, awakened the ability or not. (Speculate away.) But, after reaching late-13 years of age (not during puberty, as you might be surprised to know; TMI ALERT: I started it when I was 8, and ended mid/late-13) it started to pick up at a staggering rate, from 5-7 average, to in that one year of being 13, 100+. When I reached Fourteen years of age; 270+ (And still counting, nearly every night, but not every night).
You'd probably think I'm 30 by my spelling and grammar (everybody does, and when I say "everybody" I mean that quite literally), in lieu of that thought; you are way off, age-wise. (Hey, I'm going to be a writer, it's no wonder they are better than the rest of my classmates', by far. Although it is Summer Break now.)
Now, at nearly 15 years old, my premonitions have gone very much in-depth, to the point of where they will last my entire sleep state, and where I can occasionally control my actions. Although, they are still involuntary. I attempted "Third Eye Meditation" last night, but it didn't work the first time. (I did not expect it to, however, I did get the "tingling" feeling in my hands, rather than on my Third Eye, as another site described.)
Another part to this is that, very, very rarely, I have seen spirits, but in a different sense. What I mean by this is that they were black (Now, I'm a fourth age, 52nd life individual who lives in Earth's Third Age [very frustrating, but won't be in the near future], but when I say "black", I mean that their entire form, all of it, was pitch black. Picture drawing a perfect square on the Paint program on your computer, representing the human figure of a spirit, and use the "paint bucket" to fill that square with black, now you have a "Black" square. That is what I saw, as these spirits; human forms, but entirely black. I do not know why, but this was the only form I have seen them in.).
The first one was about 3 or 3 years ago, every night, at 6:38-7:02, I would see (The light outside was as if it was Summer natural outside lighting) a "Black" figure of a man with a hat (Bowler-like, but with a square, not rounded, top, "formal" as I would call it.) and dressed in a suit, I would assume; a 1930's business man, would walk past my window to the front door (living room has a window right before the front door, so that you can see who is coming to it.). I have never seen him before, nor anyone who looked like him (outline-wise, filled in, remember; they allow themselves to be seen by me only as pure, pitch black.). But recalling a passage I had read from a book related in some form or another to spirits, it appeared to me that he/his spirit was stuck in a "Time-loop".
The reason I thought this was that it occurred every weekday night between 6:38 and 7:02 PM for about a fortnight and a half. Then he stopped showing up. As you may suggest what to have done, I did look before and after he showed up. I never heard a knocking sound, nor footsteps, and he was never there before or after walking by. I assume that he simply vanished after passing the window, and appeared before walking past it.
He also never seemed to acknowledge me watching him through the corner of my eye, nor my presence. I never saw any distinct feature of him, nor his eyes. Just his outline, filled in, to be a black figure.
The second experience was no so important (and no, the above, previous experience was not a warning sign; nothing bad happened in a timescale appropriate for it to be a warning sign, by any means).
It was a normal day for the average person (which of course does not include me, I can see spirits and have constant IP's, and no one else if anyone has either one or both of these abilities in my "city".), My best friend Todd had just left the house, wanting me to come over to his, I had my kitty/cat in my arm and my mom was outside washing her car; back faced to the house.
Both the front door and basement door was open (they are right across from each other, in a T fashion when you walk in the front door. Left top side of the T is the front door, right top is the basement door, middle and further down is the living room entrance.). As I walked out of the hall into the kitchen (Follow the middle of the T further down and you enter the kitchen directly), just realizing that Todd had left, when I saw a more "modern" figure of a man walking towards the basement.
He did not acknowledge my presence nor anyone else's, and he appeared about 5 feet in front of me, back facing me, already walking towards the basement. PLEASE NOTE: In neither cases of seeing spirits (That I can remember, the Grandfather experience I do not recall) did I feel frightened or threatened in any way, it was as if I hadn't noticed them at all; I felt no different upon seeing them. And as he started to go down the steps, out of sight, I said "Todd, I thought you had left already!" no response from the spirit, and he went down the steps out of sight. Immediately after, I went to look down the basement steps and, just as always, no one was there (the light was already on in the basement, so I could see quite clearly and easily). Right after this I asked my mom if Todd had left and she said "About 2 minutes ago, why?"
I told her about the spirit, and she said "You're abilities appear to be developing further, did you feel scared?" and I told her no, she didn't say anything back. So I left to go to Todd's (literally about 65 feet away, directly across the street from my house) a little shaken.
Alas, I wish to develop my involuntary premonitions further, and wish to know how. As well, if not more importantly (as IP came naturally and advanced quite well on it's own, I even generally remember my IP's) I wish to see spirits like I did before, although preferably not these black, unthreatening, unhostile spirits. I wish to see them in full color. And, most especially (Since by many psychics, real ones, I am considered to be extremely special and will make a gigantic impact upon this Earth with my forthcoming profession, I apparently have 7 Guardian Angels, and 5 Spirit Guides.)
Thank you for reading this long story, I appreciate your patience with me, and would appreciate any comments or advice, and I would like to sincerely know if someone else has these experiences (and possibly the same age as I am, if you are).
