14 And A Scared Medium


I've only just started realizing about what I am, but I don't know how to do everything. When I was young (5) I use to cry out at night and when my mum came up I would shout at a man or woman who would be standing in my room, an invisible person. My mum narrowed it down to being over tired or 'night terrors '. I am 14 now and things have taken a serious change. The main time I see things are in my dreams. I have been dreaming about a woman, dark haired, thin lips and always wears blue eye shadow and a long pink nightgown. I had two dreams about her, and always woke up in a cold sweat afterwards.

The first dream, I was in my house and she walked past my bedroom so I got up to investigate and she was there, hanging above my banister on my landing. Then I looked underneath her and there was a mirror and my reflection changed to hers. The next day, I had another dream. I was being taken into a house. I didn't recognize the house but felt like I had been there before. I was lead by a ginger haired woman. She took me to the attic of the house and there was a table in the center with a sewing machine on it and a cat stood next to it. Then the room turned cold and I turned to go, but the woman was standing at the doorway, scary like a horror film. Then I woke up.

I told my best friend about my dreams and I described the women to her. She then said, "She sounds like my nana." I told her to bring a photograph of her nana to school the next day. It was her! I was terrified. I asked her if the dreams meant anything to her and she replied, "Well, my nana used to have a room with nothing in it apart from a wardrobe, sewing machine (which is on a table) and a chair." She also said her auntie was red headed and owned lots of cats. Her nana had died of lung cancer. We figured that this had to do with being hung. When you are being hung you can't breathe, her nana died because she couldn't breath.

Then things popped onto my, head; objects, names, a house and all its furnishings. My friend said that the house was her nanas, and that I described everything correctly.

One night I was listening to my music and thinking about things and I heard a voice in my head say, "I love her, tell her from Joan." So I did. My friend then burst out crying and said that was her nana's name. I learned how to open my mind and talk to the spirits. Joan came to me and apologized for scaring me. I talked to her and told Becky everything we said and now I don't here from Joan, unless I ask for her.

Lately, my 'powers' have been getting worse I will write them up in another story, I need help as things are beginning to scare me!

this dream you had scares me because when I was 10 (when I only had my ability to speak to the dead) I also seen a women with dark hair and had a pink nightgown. I also got out of bed to investigate but when I was about to walk out my door a voice shouted "not you" at that moment I woke up and my hand was bleeding.

Don't be afraid. Joan picked you becuase she knew that you would give your friend the message. What you were shown is what was needed to confirm things with your friend. You have a ability to relay messages to the living from the dead. Think of it as helping people connect.

Hey my name is shannon to! Although I am like 20. I guess you could say I had a similar story. My uncle whispered my name and it was his voice and everything. He died in his house so I guess it makes since. But since then he hasn't said anything to me. I think you could be psychic though. Hope your issue calmes down a little.

wow, that is pretty freaky, but also cool. I saw ghosts up until the age of 6. Most of them went away after awhile, but 1 always stayed with me. I reckon she my was guardian
I hope your experiences ease off for awhile. 😁

I'm in exactly the same boots as you were when you were younger! I've only just realised what it is... I get really vivid dreams almost when I'm asleep, but I'm not asleep you get me? Its weird, because no one believes me... 😕 its scary too... I keep seeing shady or faint areas, and the next thing I know a random thought or a name has appeared in my head... I spoke out what I was thinking today... And believe me... It freaked me out. 😕 it was my friends nana who had died of cancer... She was scared and she had been talking about her before, sayign what a lovely person she was and everything... I totally emphasise with you... Where the same age too.:)

I can do this too, but without the dreams, for me they are just like everyday people. It is a gift.

hello I just want to post this because our stories are similar I hope you don't mind
my name is kurtis I am 16
I need some advice I think I have a gift but I'm not sure you see I can read palms which is always spot on for example I read my girlfriends aunts palm last weekend and told her a close male figure in her life would pass away soon and leave her with a choice to make this tuesday her brother who was fit as a fiddle died and her aunt had the choice to move into his house but its in spain. And I have been reading palms a lot more often recently but I have noticed I'm getting more detail from a palm and visions two like today my friends and I we all went to a fair today and I had a vison just before we entered the park and I actually collapsed it consumed my entire body and I went weak. I saw a train a brick arch and a monster then the word kills in smoke. I instantly told my friends who all know of my gift. And as we entered everything I saw was on this one ride a picture of everything and the name of the ride was the ghost house but the only thing that wasn't there was anything to do with death or murder. Just before we left the fair we saw an ambulance outside and a man had actually had a heart attack on that ride and now I'm scared am I going crazy or what?
Please help

Hi Shannon13.

My name is Connor and I have a very similar story to you except I don't have as detailed dreams. I probably aren't as skilled as you. If you could read my story and help me strenghthen my dreams and ability it would be great. I know I may be asking a lot but I am kind of wondering what I could do to strenghthen it. I have just recently figured out my ability. Hope you or anyone else can help me.

I can see ghosts everwhere I go. I'm thirteen and have had my gift since I was six. It does get stronger as your mind gets used to the gift. Fear is a normal reaction. It is best to try and be strong. My first time talking to a spirit ended me up with an A in Writing and a new best friend. I will write my story when the publishing line is cleared up. But, something I can tell you is that even when you feel like your helpless doesn't mean that you are. You have a gift. So use it.

I am a medium and just realised also. Lucky for me however I have a grandmother who can give premonitions. I have inherited a gift from her sister which is her twin and she was a medium. You shouldn't think of this as a curse or something to be scared of I once was scared but then realised that they weren't trying to hurt me. The woman you are talking to and connecting with obviously dosen't want to scare you and you should try and concentrate on her image and ask her why she is still here and is she wanting you to tell your friend anything else.

Wow, we almost have to same thing happening. I only get them sometimes, mostly I see things in my dreams before they happen. But it's nice to know I'm not the only young person going though it.

Wow, very interesting story. I think you are going about it the wrong way myself. OK, firstly, no alcohol or drugs of any kind, that is a hard and fast rule. Dont try it either when you are stressed.
My advise to you would be to get into tune with your spirit guides, lie in bed and empty your mind. Then do the usual protection by filling yourself full of white light, and then imagine that you are surrounding yourself with a violet light for full protection, then do the same to your house.

Then relax and ask for your spirit guides to come to you, and ask to be in tune with your guides. You should never feel any bad or negativity when dealing with your guides, if you do, it's not them.

Once you are in tune ask your guides to cut back the amount of spirits you are seeing. Explain to them, you still want to do it, but on your own terms, when you want to. Your guides will really look after you. Let me know?

Hey there. So I'm a medium too, but I don't really see things in dreams, I just flat out see people. It's kind of creepy, but since its been for my entire life, I'm kind of past being scared and now I'm just tired of seeing people all the time.
I recently had this theory about trying to sort of take the edge off of my abilities sometimes is trying to keep my mind as far away from relaxed as possible. If you see things while you're sleeping, its probably because you're mind is very vulnerable while you sleep (all the normal "guards" you have up while you are awake just fall away and your subconcious takes over). And mediums who deliberately try to contact a spirit or ghost generally try to meditate to bring their mind down to a calmer place, or so I've read. So what I'm going to try is reversing that process-I'm going to try to stay pumped full of caffeine as much as possible. The caffeine (in coffee, energy drinks, soda, you name it) makes me kind of jittery and unable to stay focused. My hope is that this will take some of the edge off of what I see. I'll post a story if it ends up working. In the mean time, you'll get through the scary part-your abilities aren't out of control, as far as I have experienced the most they can be is very, very annoying.
Best, Sarah

Hi Shannon.
It seems you have many friends and others just like you on here.
I am nearly 60 years old and mine all started only 20 years ago. I have gone through all of the scared bit and unsure if I want it, why me, what's it all about. I am so pleased that I stuck with it all.

I see that you say your powers are getting worse. I think you should have said, getting stronger and better.
Im sure there are many on here that can help you and guide you. I had a lady help me and explain everything about what I was seeing.

I started with very strong visions of some not very nice things. Then it would accually happen. I had many like this, but my friend told me that it is the way that the spirit world are testing me to see if I am strong enough to go through what they want me to do.

I have had many visions of all sorts, all came true, I also hear voices of spirit, that is soooo cool, and I see energy of spirit. You are sooooo lucky to have this gift at such a young age, good effort girl.

I can honestly tell you that it is the most wonderful thing that has happened in my life. Don't however look at it as a peower, but a gift from the heavens. They obviuosly have things they would like you to do for the world and its people. Just learn to harness it and understand it a little more. You can close your spiritual window and open it too.

Sometimes I get the visions and feelings in the middle of the night, and I need my sleep, so I ask my spirit guides to stop them until I am ready. I would never stop it for ever. I do tarot cards and also readings for people now. I also invoke sppirit to come to me and I talk with them, it is amazing. I do not charge but if they give me money, I put it into a children's cancer charity.

You will be fine I can tell you. Keep it up and start to enjoy it. Your spirit guides will not let you go too far too soon and scare you. They WILL look after you.

Love and light to you.
