Am I Psychic, Haunted Or Crazy? Can A Psychic Please Help Me?


Please READ and Please HELP...

Hi Everyone,

I have had many experiences at different times throughout my life and I'm hoping that someone can help answer some of my questions.

The 1st was when I was about 9 years old. I was on the 1st floor of my mother's house in Jersey City, NJ when I could hear a baby crying through the heater vent as I was lying there waiting for the heat to come on after playing outside.

Years later, maybe 13 years old, I was in my bedroom looking in my mirror and in that mirror I could see the dresser mirrors in the next bedroom over. It was a long dresser with 2 small, skinny mirrors on both sides. I saw a dark shadow move past the 1st mirror then the 2nd mirror without passing the wall in the middle.

Also, when I was much younger, younger than 8, I would say, same house, I had, still have, memories of being someone else, remembered being a grown woman and walking into that very house, but it looked a little different. I also remember being a baby, being in the crib and even a hospital stay in a crib where my mother left me she says because at that time in the early 70's, Parents couldn't stay overnight with their babies. They would just call you if they needed you.

When I was 15 living at the Jersey Shore at that time in new house my parents just bought to leave the city for good. I became heavily interested in the Paranormal, the spirit world, anything weird. I had about 5 books from the Library about Wicca, The Paranormal, Ghosts etc. I got comfy on the living room floor to read, before I could read. I noticed about 5 small toddler sized, black, quick childlike moving shadows behind the other end of the couch and they all ducked down to hide (not simultaneously).

I had never been so frightened in my life...NEVER! It gave the worst sensation. I ran and left lights, pillows books right there, TV on and everything. Jumped under the covers with my mother, covering my face until morning. I kept this to myself until I was about 23. And had already been in my own apartment since I was 18 and had 2 kids already.

It was a mother/daughter house and my sister lived downstairs. I came over for a cook-out and I began to try to pour my heart out and tell her this story and she stopped me and said, "Wait. Were they small, black and with childlike swift movement?" MY HEART DROPPED. She had seen them downstairs as well.


There's more. I heard a conversation in my head - then those people arrived.

I've had a white apparition walk straight through me then through the wall.

I've looked at peoples or their pictures and knew their names.

Scary lucid dreams, I've thought of what someone might say then they said it.

What are the dark shadows? And am I psychic?

I don't mind knowing what someone will say but I don't want to see any apparitions. They have been far apart -- each episode! Events that have happened over the 35 years of my life. When I've seen them I was so completely terrified. I would pray and pray to never see again. It seemed as if the Lord listened but then they came back years later.

Now back again! In my new house of 7 years (I never seen anything in this house before) why now?

Can someone help me with any of this. Please, ad thank you in advance.

I haven't lived in that house since I was 15yrs old. I'm 36 now and have moved a lot since then. I'm working on getting a grip on my own fear & not allowing my fear to totally take me over, which for me causes panic attacks.

I know in the headline of this story I asked if I were haunted, I don't think that I am haunted, especially by any demons. I was 15 when I got those books from the Library. I returned them immediately. I have never seen those (specific) childlike shadows again. I have seen shadow people here and there in other places but not those specific ones I saw at that time.

I believe they had stayed in that house for a period of time but eventually left because there was nothing dark or negative about the house only good and positivity, my mother is very close to God and a different sister lives down there now, she's very religious and her son is an ordained minister. So, I think because the energy of the house has changed... They left!

My sister never new about the books. Within the 2 days I had the books I learned a quick lesson & had no interest in reading those kind of things after that... In fact, I never actually had time to read the books. I sat down with them, was ready to read but was watching TV, I picked them up glanced over them trying to decide what to read 1st then I saw the shadows and that was it! I ran & returned the books to the Library the following day... I got rid of those damn books in a hurry! Lol

One more thing...
A few years after this I was no longer living at home, had my own apartment since I was 18. I came to my moms for a cookout. My sister & I were alone in the backyard. She privately told me that one day she saw these childlike shadows downstairs in her section of the house (It's a mother/daughter style house)...

She had no knowledge of the books or what I had seen... I never discussed these things with my mother or sister until I was in my upper twenties... As a younger person or a kid I had no where to turn and no one to discuss this with without either not being believed or being ridiculed so I kept it to myself!
Thank you for your thoughts and ideas.
I appreciate you and everyone here taking the time to give their advice and opinions. Although I may not agree with everything, it is appreciated.
Thanks ❀

ok, you do have a complex life story I can say that easily, you have experienced hauntings, demonics, and gateways. Before you bought those books, you were simply being haunted by spirits unwilling to pass, or simple minded and found things paranormal due to young age, but when you bought those books, they can serve as a gateway to dark forces, I'm sure your aware in order to use wicca, you must swear your soul to satan (something I would never dare do) and something being based around such a dark deed will act as a lure for darker forces. Those books attracted something to your home. They seem to be following you, and would you know by chance if your sister noticed these books and ever even picked them up? This could cause the demons to be in her life also. Or if youve ever talked to her about it, then they could have found her and decided to be with you, or there could be the option that you just arent very lucky when selecting houses bc black shadows can be spirits as well, they may just be lost souls, but seeing them before in the mirror can change things, I want to say that they are souls simply because demons very rarely will effect two people and with all the moving you do I'm assuming your somewhat financially and mentally secure where as a demon will tear you apart until you literally reach insanity and cannot control your body anymore, but I want to say demonics because you have seen these shadows and heard all child like things all of your life like the crying the mirror shadow and shadow children. If you do have an ability I recommend you use this ability ASAP or get somebody who does and a priest to your home to see what is going down. If you have further questions, feel free to email me, or contact me on here,

ok first of all, you are not insane because if you are then we all are here!
you had past life experences, and you have seen demons, along with hearing the dead. The demons are not good!😨they will give you trouble. Read my storie about the dark figure. Not all apperations are bad, like the white one I saw one that looked kind of like my cousin, but my cousin is still alive!😨Now I learn to learn from these things. Read my stories, they might help. I am also haunted everywhere that I go. Night, some times the lord doesn't help.

Yes I can give you advice (you posted on my own story, asking for my help).

You are sensitive to seeing and hearing spirits. As you researched the paranormal in your teens and twenties, the sightings increased. This is normal. When spirits need help they will seek out those who can see and hear them.

Dark shadows are not necessarily dark or evil entities, unless they are obviously threatening towards you and attack you. Some spirits only have the ability to show themselves in certain ways and forms. (The movie "Ghost" demonstrates this quite well.)

Personally I do not recommend Wicca, not because it is evil per say, but because some who use it for black magic and evil purposes might misunderstand and assume you use it for dark reasons and so bad entities will be drawn to you. I get the impression that you are a good person and want to feel safe and protected (and your children as well).

Have you tried communicating with any of the spirits to see if you can help them? (Not all want help. Some are happy remaining on Earth and drifting around in homes at will and doing whatever they want. Whereas others may want help finding their way into the light so they can be at peace or begin a new life.)

Some people can see spirits as we look and some can see shadows or both. I normally have seen spirits that look almost living, but started seeing these shadows recently. Been having paranormal experiences since childhood and I am now 37. Black shadows are not all demons, but can be. Some are very negative souls who never went to the other side. I have seen black shadows in my home, one poked me in the finger with something. I watched the same one float above my son in my room. This black shadow in my home is a woman who is very negative, heading towards evil. Just pay close attention to how you feel, if it doesn't feel right, it isn't. Ask your spirit guides for help to remove it and take it to the other side. I have noticed here that when I say the St. Michael prayer they take off out of the room. Seems to work every time.

Shadow people are causers of nightmares and enjoy feeding on people's pain and fear. They look like shadows, and sometimes whispers can be heard from them. They move swiftly and kind of hunched over at times, however they can also be tall and their features are most of the time... Not seen. Does this match what you saw? Email us at VendettaSiblings [at] if you have any comments/questions.

OMG, thank you everyone. I can't believe I'm getting some answers. 😁
I've researched shadow people and I knew it wasn't going to be good...LOL
I'm going to try to find my Spirit Guide. I'll have to research how to do that. I usually keep these things to myself and have been looking for an outlet because people that don't see these things will think your a nut or weird or whatever!
I've got a lot of work to do now, things to research.

The Oracle 101 & Tools for confronting the dark shadows are of great interest.
I'm tiered of being afraid and want to be in control.

I think when I act out (which I explain in the next paragrah) I think it's satisfied. Kind of like - Gottcha!

I don't think I should be showing any type of fear but, when it happens... Like an idiot... I freeze like a mannequin then scream for someone to come because at this point I feel like I can't move. The fear just totally immobilizes me... πŸ˜† I've gotta laugh at myself to keep my sanity. Of course I wasn't laughing then. I'm going to practice controlling my fear, for this purpose and also so to try to enjoy a Lucid Dream! They frighten me too...
Once I realize I'm conscious & dreaming, I get scared.
I know, that sounds crazy right.
XtjrX I will be emailing you soon, and I'll be taking all the advice from everyone.
I needed this. To be able to connect with people in simular situations.

Darkbeauty: If it helps I feel like you have psychic ability; so you aren't crazy. As for haunted? Well, bad spirits feed on fear, so they may want to stay around you. I am most blessed to have both a powerfull spirit gaurdian, and a most wise and powerfull mentor here on earth. So I don't get scared anymore. I agree with others: Meditate, research what you are experiencing, try to find your spirit guide-if you havne't already. Read Oracle 101's many posts about finding your spirit guide-sorry if other members' names belong here too, I followed the Oracle's advise and I found mine. I really hope you get the answers and courage you need. Living in fear isn't living at all. I'm rooting for you. One the other side of fear are wonderfull things I promise.:)

DarkBeu as Elfigure stated white are people, I see grey, dark can be neg/bad,lost/assoc with illness, some blieve-brothers of darkness. Mythology: Alux,Nunhupis,Huemac. Some appear where there is illness as hospitals.
Google: ghost hunters.xephernet.
Sounds like the reappeance of dark spirits could this be a call?. Maybe time to pray for tools to confront dark/spirits. Tools you find:comfort/empowered with authority. If not find answer why they appeared again. Something you/guides/angels have answer to.
Universal laws show our authority, to asking spirit 3x they must obey. Revealing intent (you hear/fill/know their intent. Blessing!

I see black and white figures all the time too and I'm psychic. The black figures are supposively demons. A couple weeks ago my friend was scratched by one, so they can't be good. 😨 As for the white ones, I believe they are dead people. You may be psychic and if you want to learn more about these dark figures, I would wikipedia "shadow people" or just research. 😁
