I am 13 years old, almost 14 and I am a psychic/channeler. My mom has a friend that is psychic and she could sense that I have the ability to contact the spirit world. I knew that I could contact the spirit world since I was 12. One night when I was laying in my bed I could hear footsteps in my kitchen, so I figured it was my dad since he's always thirsty and looking for something to drink. But after about one hour laying in my bed I heard the footsteps go into my hallway. At the moment I got really scared and thought it was a robber/thief, because I could still hear the footsteps after my dad went to bed. So I crawled under the covers and laid there for a while. I had school the next day and I really had to get to sleep, but I couldn't fall asleep because I was terrified. Then around 1am the footsteps came into my bedroom, at that point I had enough, I burst into tears and prayed that no one would hurt me. So I yelled for my mom to come into my room and she told me that everything will be okay, but I was to scared to listen. I told her that I thought that someone or something was trying to tell me something. But she told me that I must've been dreaming and I scared myself into shock. So the next day I talked about what happened the night before with my mom and she told me that she knew that it was a spirit all along.
To this day I will remember that experience because it as the first time I have ever had a spirit contact me. I also have Tourette Syndrome, for those who don't know what that is, it's a neurological disorder that forces me to make little squeaks and make random movements. Luckily I am on medication for this and now my Tourettes (also referred to as TICS) are very mild. Having Tourettes does not prevent me from doing anything.
So whenever my Tourettes start to act up, there is usually some sort of energy around me, and that is how my mothers friend knew that I am sensitive to "that part of the world". My mothers friend also brought up that I may have lived another life. And that may be the reason on why I can see peoples auras.
I try to meditate every day to keep my abilities "up and going" I am able to use a pendulum and I am very open to this kind of stuff.
That is one of my experiences. I hope that you enjoyed reading this story.
