It first starts off when I was on holiday, doing some stuff and perusing the streets as one does.
We decide that there is enough time to kill and find a shop for mediumship, tarot and palm reading. This was about 10 years ago and after seeing my friend having a good time, was £10 for a quick palm reading to which my friend was finished in 15 minutes!
About 6 years ago a lady come to work where I was, she said she had mediumship skills, to which that she gave everyone but me at work "readings" per-say, a colleague asked what she could get for me, and her reply was that she couldn't read me and this was really odd and she didn't understand what was going on or why!
Coming closer to present day and this is where it gets very interesting! 3 years ago now, I have seen this medium do his shows many times, he does a whole rage of things for entertainment which wasn't just reading but also table tipping, seance hypnosis and the times when he holds an item and reads the family who owns/owned that item (usually jewelry but has also done clothing and other things that people have, once it was dentures of someone who departed! Eeew LOL)
Anyhow that aside I have seen him put people in hypnosis in 10 sec flat! But for me, he couldn't read me too, so he tried to hypnotize me, to which his tried and tested method didn't work so he tried a different way, one that I have never seen before, Oh how I was hoping to be put "under" I would love to see what it would be like! Sadly that too didn't work and he said "oooo someones protected" in a naaa-nana-naaa-nah way of saying it.
Towards the end of trying again he said he can't as I have something with me.
Now a little about me, 7 years ago I had a mental episode and while off work I had plenty of time to think, well I knew I seen and heard things and wondered about practicing various different things, I, on my own honed my skills, I got quite good, I could see everything, hear and talk to them, this is where I got what would call my pets, however most called them elementals and deeply religious mediums called them demons?
Well, I know they haven't hurt me on purpose, I have been scratched on my legs a few times but I see it like every animal that has claws will scratch you, heck I was always being clawed by my cat if they wasn't trimmed lol but just like any pet they love fuss and attention to which I played with them and when they got a tad hyper the lights would flicker and things would fall over!
The doctors was gaining more worrying about my condition as it was being made worse by many different type of pills, so when I eventually seen a psychiatric doctor he was asking me the usual questions, did I hear voices do I see things etc, well I said yes, he replied with what you'd expect, when did you last experience this? And my answer raised an eyebrow as I said it was happening right now in this room.
Explaining to him it was an old lady, not speaking English which was odd, and I tried to copy what she was saying. The doctor turned from looking at me, puts his pen down between the rows of his keyboard and asked to be excused!
10 minutes or so later he comes back into the room and his face and eyes are red, he obviously been crying, he said that what I said was the last thing his grandma said to him before he came to the uk in the mid 60's.
He was dutch or something? Not sure never asked but he said he never believed in the afterlife and that I could never know what was said, nerveless have said it in his language but more so in the local dialect too!
When I met my girlfriend I explained all this and it didn't cause an issue, except when guests came and they felt a heavy lump jump on their legs like a dog had jumped on them and sometimes they got scratched too.
That aside now that house was just so haunted with so many spirits coming and going, this is where I decided to get into "ghost hunting" more so to use the equipment to let the spirits tell people what they want in their words being recorded and put out on the net for everyone who wants to hear their story that they can!
Present day and the "gift" I would say is getting bothersome, I don't to do readings for people, I know that they'll keep asking me and insisting for one which would be a pain in the bum, i'm sure most of you mediums know what I mean LOL
Me, i'm antisocial, i'm an introvert, a hermit of kinds and don't like to be pestered by both, living and the dead!
That medium I seen many times has asked for my help on some occasions as he can't get the glass to move etc, he offered me to take charge of the table to be tipped, well all I can say is that I can see when he tips the table he does so from his direction, as I'm good at noticing the little details wink wink, well, I made this heavy pub table tip towards me, this I'm sure he wasn't expecting! Oh and yes he knows I'm a medium, he picked me out on one of his first shows and heavily questioned me in front of everyone why I was there and why don't I want to do reading etc etc, maybe he felt like I was trying to show him up or something? It must have eaten at him all night and wondered when and what I was going to say and do LOL.
Oh and by the way, if anyone was wondering what my mental condition was, I have a mixed mood condition called bipolar.
