I see shadows. That is why I joined this group. They range in color from black, to grey (most often), to white. It is becoming frustrating, yet almost commonplace as I see them everyday. I believe in God, therefore, I pray and ask for his protection over me and other family members. It does get a little more complicated than just seeing shadows.
It should be known that my psychic abilities have been more fine-tuned over the last few years. Two months ago, I awoke to hear my best friend's grandmother (which I only met once, at her home last year) calling out her name."Granny Betty". Without words we had a spirit-to-spirit conversation in which I was told to go call and console the family. I had run out of minutes on my phone (bad time to be a psychic with a message for delivery, lol). I drove myself to a local gas station that had a pay phone. I called my best friend to give her my condolences and tell her what had just happened at my home. She said, "How could you have known? My grandmother just died yesterday morning?"
Later that week, her family (in particular the step-father) had some questions for me which I willingly answered. The step dad wanted to know about my experience speaking to his deceased mother. I told him that the only audible words I heard were herself announcing her presence in my home. A shout, if you will, "Granny Betty!" Please do not assume that I am saying it was ominous in any way. It was not a seemingly bad presence. It could be described as being a VERY direct spirit that wanted to clearly state her name. The step-father began to speak to me and said that he had asked her to send a sign beyond her passing to let him know for sure that she was ok.
So I am guessing she used me as a medium? I am still confused about my gifts and am trying to be more open and honest with other when I have such experiences. Talking with spirits does not happen on a daily basis, thank God.:-) I think I can only handle that every so many months or so.
Similar occurrences have become more frequent over the last few years. Does anyone know how to deal with intense experiences that do not always have clear meaning? At times, I have wondered if this is a good thing or the opposite of that? I do enjoy bringing solace and closure to people who have been upset over the deaths of loved ones. I have always been a very sensitive person even as a child. However, my experiences come in no predictable patterns. For instance, I am doubtful that I have the ability to channel a particular person unless they want to speak to me first, make sense? For example, I have had premonitions that death was coming with many family and friends, but then sometimes, have not predicted anything at all. In fact, I am still baffled as to why I have never spoken or dreamed of my grandmother's spirit whereas with my grandfather I have a better connection to his energy.
Last year, I dreamed of a dear friend who was standing cold, outside and she was crying in the dream. I felt that she was scared and in the dream she was hugging me tight and crying uncontrollably. I immediately texted her and did not hear anything back for awhile. Then she texted me to say she had survived a miracle. She had been in a terrible car accident. My friend had been life-lifted by a helicopter to a nearby hospital two hours away. This was also while I was sleeping. I am curious if there is a reason that I am more open to receive messages when I am not awake.
I apologize in advance for the randomness of my story and questions. I really need a person's guidance in what to do about these things. My reluctance to share my experiences needs to end. I know that this happens to others, too. Thanks to this site I am increasing my awareness and am comforted in finally knowing that I am not alone.
Thanks for reading this post. Please leave any comments and suggestions, as they pop into your mind. Those are usually the best ones.:-)
