I'm new to this site and this is my first post; I know it's long but would greatly appreciate it if people would read it all and advice or opinions on my experiences would be even better!
Although I'm only 17, I've always been a firm believer in the supernatural and spiritual. However, lately there have been many strange occurrences in my home, and I don't know if it's in my head or if there is an actual presence there.
I'll start at the beginning. Well, my family have had their fair share of spiritual experiences, as my mum grew up in a house that was haunted by entities that would push her around when she was younger late at night; and would cause pictures to drop of the wall (even with the strongest ropes used in ship yards).
Over the years whenever my nan has had a few alcoholic drinks, she has always seen the same 3 people come to visit her; whatever time it was, however never could see their faces and would have long conversations with them.
A few years back, we had a party and a physic came and did 8 readings, including my nan's. The physic is genuine and highly acclaimed where I'm from as even my mum and step-dad have had readings done and said she 'knew everything that had ever happened' and what she said would happen, has. Anyway, at my Nan's reading she told her that the 3 people she sees when she's had a drink ARE there and there not in her head; and the spirits are her mum, grandma and granddad.
Back to present day, there have been a number of incidents that have happened to both me and my mum. In my room I feel a presence but I can't figure out if it's a good or bad one; all I know is that I feel it most on a night and for the past week I have been putting of sleeping until the early hours, then sleeping with the t.v on for background noise (yes I know that sounds stupid lol). So I think it's safe to say this presence is scaring me a bit.
Recently, I thought of talking to my spirit guide; although I have never been in contact I believe that I have one. Anyway, the day after I had been wanting to contact my spirit guide, I fell asleep while I was meditating and had a dream about my guide which turned out to be a black haired woman in a long old fashioned dress, and I woke up with my heart racing.
Other occurrences include a voice in my head advising me, nothing major just little things. This happened a few weeks ago before an exam and I was lined up ready to go in when a distinct voice said 'Your not supposed to be in hear', and it turned out my name was down for a different room which had changed at the last minute.
Occurrences my mum has had include often feeling a presence in the lounge; and she knows its spiritual as she always waits for the icy cold feeling she gets across the lower half of her body. A few nights ago, she awoke to the sound of heavy breathing a few feet away from her and she felt icy cold.
On another occasion, when she's been semi- conscious, she's jumped awake after feeling a harsh breath right in her ear with her heat racing. After telling her about the presence I have felt recently, she's contacted a physic who is coming to the house later this month to see if there is an actual presence or if it is just us losing our minds!
I personally don't know if the events are in my head or if they are real, but opinions and advice are gratefully received.
