My name is April. I am a 24 year old student of literature, at Missouri State University for five years. I was raised by an intelligent, well rounded, dysfunctional set of parents. Ever since I can remember, I have seen and felt ghosts. I am writing because I need help with the "maintenance" of this ability.
I am now 24 and my parents are divorced. My father is "happily" married to a lovely woman and I don't see much of either of them. My mother is still single and one of my best friends. We had rough times together when I was a teen but, for the most part, we understand each other now.
I must admit that I attribute the closeness that I share with my mother to the unique paranormal experiences that we have had together. When I was a child, I would see people at night, in my room, that scared me enough to wake me up and send me to my parents bed. My father would say that my imagination ran wild but my mom believed it. She even has written accounts of these entities because it bothered her that I saw them. She knew then and she is the only one I talk to about it now.
That, being many years, later I am still haunted. What made me seek guidance is what I saw tonight. I saw my dead uncle (died last December in an unexpected way) in my living room and saw things about the afterlife- saw evil that I didn't want to know.
I need guidance. God is my Shepard but I live in the "bible belt" and a psychic is still taboo here but I don't know where to channel this productively. I really don't want an invasion of unwelcomed stuff. Any advice would be appreciated.
