Seeing Things Again, Is It A Gift Or Am I Losing My Mind?


When I was younger my mother told me a story of how when I was little my papa who smelled of popcorn tucked me in at night, the thing is my papa had passed away a year before I was born. She also told of how my sister and I would always say hello to something or someone when we entered a room in one of our old houses. We believe that this spirit has followed us through every house move as similar ghostly activities have happens in each house.

Whilst I've never seen much, most of my experiences have been through sound.

I've always heard things like people walking up stairs when I'm alone and I know there no one else in the house and people saying hello or calling my name when I'm alone. As well as an instance where the doorbell would go off late at night and would only stop when I asked.

However as of the past couple of years I've began to see things again. It first started out as shadow blobs that would appear for up to a minute and then quickly move behind something like the couch or the door, over time these shadows have developed into the forms of people as one time I saw someone walk past my mother in the kitchen as well as seeing a shadow at my living room door and near my couch as well as standing within my peripheral vision. I have also seen the shadow of animals such as dogs running throughout the house.

Another incident happened whilst I was at work where in one of the screens I was watching over. I felt some one grab my arm and yank it back despite me being close to a wall with a small gap that no one could fit behind me

Also as of the past month or so I've also began to see an almost ghost like outlines of people walking through my living room.

I'm curious is this a gift or is it all in my head?

Hi Minty12,

You sound like a medium and your gifts are opening up again like they were when you were younger. I highly recommend you learn basic psychic protection, grounding, centering, meditation, clearing your space and energy (the invocations do this for you actually), and what to do with excess energy or stagnant energy you may have at times before practicing your gifts. I can tell you the Michael Invocation, White Light Shields, several dark colored crystals, and some lighter colored crystals like lapis lazuli and amethyst can be helpful with psychic protection. White sage is also good for clearing spaces, but it doesn't cross over any ghosts.

If you ever notice a ghost around, (or if you're unsure and you're like me and rather be safe than sorry) just ask your guardian angel (or Archangel Michael, or whatever name you call your guardian by) to find the ghost and take them into healing. The sentence goes something like this:

"Archangel Michael, FIND the ghost that is near me and TAKE it into healing."

You can change the wording to fit the situation but keep the words "find" and "take". I would especially do something like that for whatever entity bruised you, it's obviously not friendly. Spirits from heaven never do harm.

Hi Minty! What you have is a gift from God. Do not suppress it, nurture it. Don't be afraid of earthbound spirits (ghosts) who were only human beings who, when they passed over into spirit life did not realise that they have "died".
I am 83 years old, have started at a young age, and am still investigating spiritual matters. I can carry on for the next week talking to you but would rather suggest that you read my "stories" under "spookvanger", all true experiences, and my 20+ blogs published at "".
God bless, and I pray that you will find the Truth we are all looking for.

Hello Jasmine

Thank you for your reply

Yes please I would like some advice.

I was just worried that what I was seeing was all in my head, as it has been going on for some time.

I recently have been researching into pagan religions as they caught my interest at a young age, would this in any way contribute?

Also have you any idea what is the worst thing that these shadows and spirits can do?

Thank you for your reply


I myself haven't experienced any near death experiences as far as I know. However there have been near death experiences in my family the past couple of years.

As for the grabbing incident I bruise like a peach, so there was some bruises scattered all over my arms, however I didn't want to put them simply down to the incident as I bruise doing my work also.

Dear Minty have you recently had any accidents which could have been near death experience? The reason I ask is that some people tend to develop the 'gifts,' you described after such incidents.

'Seeing,' things can largely be ignored as you don't want people thinking you a 'crackpot,' or something. But the yanking of the arm. That's a different matter. Were there bruises on your arm afterwards...

Hey Minty12,

Many people start from hearing and noticing entities when young. I remember my experiences when I was around 7, I felt a presence in my room many times. I'd scream to my parents there are ghosts in my room but my parents would never come to help. In the end I stopped screaming because no one would help me. Those entities weren't even doing anything, just being there (maybe making me feel slightly terrorized or just uncomfortable by their presence).

As to the ablitiy to see. It can either develop naturally over time (usually when you don't choose to reject all the previous experiences) or it comes again when a person starts to become curious in spirituality and starts practicing some of it (even meditation counts in this case).

None of this was in your head, however as being young you didn't understand what it was in the first place. It seems neither did your mother.

Now is the right time to learn how to protect yourself, since the experiences are becoming stronger. Being watched by the shadows isn't of the comfortable things to happen and they already know that you know they're there. It is in a way a vulnerability. As if you saw a thief and didn't do anything to close your house.

If you are seeking advice, feel free to leave a comment.

Hope to hear from you soon,
