Ever since I was a little girl I have seen and sensed things others could not. Whenever you hear of a psychic/medium they seem to be able to tune into their abilities most of the time whereas I can not. Well I will start at the beginning. When I little maybe about 3 or 4 I always believed in spirits and knew what they were. I saw many apparitions when I was a child that no one else could see. When I was 5 years old my maternal grandmother passed over and she came to me about a year later in my bedroom and spoke to me.
I did not feel afraid but rather felt a great sense of comfort wash over me. After that I never saw her again but often sensed she was around me. Years passed without anything out of the ordinary occurring. When I was 13 I started experiencing a spirit around me a lot. I sensed this spirit was a man and this ended up being true as I saw him some years later, but I will come back to that. The spirit would knock on my wall on a night time, hide various objects for days on end and then put them back, move things, run up and down the stairs and bang persistently although sometimes a nuisance he was nevertheless friendly and I always felt comfortable and never afraid.
Many friends who insisted they didn't believe in spirits soon did when they stayed at my house. There was no other explanation for the noises and movement of things. One of my friends was petrified in the night and got into bed with me when she said she had heard someone running up and down my stairs for about 10 minutes and I did check and everyone was fast asleep. I came to call the spirit Percy I don't know why but he didn't seem to mind. On one occasion my dad's watch went missing from his bedside table, he turned the house upside down looking for it and actually shouted at Percy and told him to return it if he had it, my dads watch was back on his bedside table the next time he went to his bedroom. When I went to Spain with my friend I'm sure Percy came with us.
Lights would turn on and off by themselves and doors would open and shut. When I moved out into a house with my partner and daughter Percy came but the visits became less frequent. I did eventually see Percy when I was 20 and on my way home from college. As I told you earlier Percy had a habit of moving things then putting them back in the same place. Well that morning I was getting my daughter ready for nursery and had brought some socks downstairs and put them on the windowsill. However, when I went to retrieve them to put them on my daughter they had gone. I searched everywhere for them and to no avail, I ended up getting her some more.
Later my auntie picked me up from college and my daughter from nursery and we were on our way home as we turned the corner to my street. Me and my auntie clearly saw a man stood in my front room window he looked young and we thought it was my partner and that he had come home from work early. The man turned and walked away from the window. Anyway I was shocked to discover my door was locked and when I opened it with my key no one was in the house, I checked every room. I phoned my partner who confirmed he was still at work in a different city.
I told my auntie who was very spooked as we had both seen him. It was about an hour later when I noticed my daughter's socks back on the windowsill, therefore I believe Percy had taken them and was putting them back when we saw him. Nothing much happened after that although I still sometimes feel him around me. However, in the past 6 months other strange things have been happening to me. I have started to know things. Let me explain, like the other day for example I knew my partners car was not going to start there was nothing wrong with it and I had no reason to think it but I just knew, needless to say it didn't start. I usually know when the phone rings who its going to be and what somebody is going to say before they will say it.
A few months ago I saw a lady in my head, I don't know why she didn't visualize herself to me properly, maybe she couldn't but her voice was loud and clear and she told me my partners friend Chris was going to die at 34 of a heart attack if he didn't change his lifestyle, Chris is 31 now is very overweight, smokes and consumes lots of alcohol. She told me her name was Maureen. My partner told his friend this and he confirmed he had a friend called Maureen who had died some years before. I have yet to see another spirit but still continue to know thing I couldn't know. I sometimes wonder if I should try work on my gift to make it stronger or do I really want the hassle. Or am I mad even. My grandmother was a psychic medium so it's possible it could have been passed to me. Who knows what I should do.
