When I was younger, supposedly, I seemed a lot more in tuned with things that are classified as the paranormal. Some incidents I recall but others are stories my mom has told me later on as I had gotten older. There are a few other things also but I wonder if it's just me being a bit crazy.
The first story was right after my great-grandmother had died. A few weeks to a month later, I believe I was around the age of 6 or 7 as I can't completely remember, my mother had told me she saw me with my hand up in the air, as if I was holding someone's hand. I was pointing to all of my dolls on my book shelf telling who ever it was their names and things about them. My mom told me she asked me who it was that I was speaking to and I told her that it was it was great grandma and I was showing her my toys. This really shocked the heck out of her; she said she really loved my great grandma so it made her sad also at the same time.
Another story is while I was very young and I forgot how old I was, I used to have an imaginary friend. I don't recall this but this is just another story my mom has told me. After awhile, my mom said I had this friend for about a few months. One day while I was playing Barbie's and speaking to my "friend," She asked me what my friend's name was and I had replied back to her that her name was Christina. She told me as I got a lot older that I used to, or should had have, a sister that she named Christina but she died shortly after birth. She then went on to tell me about the imaginary friend that I had and how it had made her cry for weeks after I told her who my friend was. It was her first child that died a few hours from internal bleeding of her lungs which she still hasn't fully been able to cope with even to this day.
Here are few stories of my own that I do recall. It would always happen if I was having extreme and horrible fights with my 2nd oldest brother as he always tormented me every day until he moved out of the house at age 19. Once when I was around 11, I was laying with my head at the foot of the bed furious at him and my room connects to my mother's through a door. The door happened to be opened at the time and light was pouring through it. I felt someone yanking my hair really hard from side to side and I hopped up and had became even more mad because I had thought my brother had snuck into his room through my mom's room to get to mine to pull my hair! I ran to the living room to yell at him and tell my mom but everyone was in the living room and she said no one has gone back to the rooms and my 2nd oldest brother had been there the whole time! That really scared me and I refused to go to my room that night and slept in my mother's bed instead for awhile.
Another time, around the same age, I just had another horrible fight with my 2nd oldest brother. I went into my room and I slammed my door. A few minutes later, the door started to rattle HORRIBLY! I became angry and opened it up to go yell at him and tell my mom about what else he had done. I could find no one in the back rooms so I went to the living room down the hall and told my mom and she said that he had been there the whole time also. My house is pretty weird and I am convinced it's haunted as my mom has had a lot of paranormal things happen to her as well.
My mom states that she is convinced that because I was coming of age, going into woman hood, that these events were due to my own emotions and that I probably had caused them to happen myself somehow, which I find to bizarre to believe.
As around age 18-19, at this time, I was going through a lot and was extremely depressed. I started to see a lot of shadow type things. Once, I saw this winged shadow fly in between the power lines while someone else was driving and I was looking straight and right at it! Another time, I was driving and I saw a diamond shaped billow of smoke rise up into the sky. I had thought it was just smoke from someone's camp fire since I was driving through a forest reserve and it was somewhat far away but not that far. The weird thing is not only did it rise high up but it went over the road and it went back DOWN! While I drove by where I thought I saw it landing. I saw nothing. No camp fires and no smoke either which still kind of creeps me out to this day even. Just little things like that for a years but I see nothing like that anymore.
Some things I see, I think is probably just my imagination being overly active. If I want to and it only happens when I look at the sky. I can see tons of sparkles flying about everywhere. Perhaps I'm just straining my eye muscles and it's just me seeing things. If I want to and I stare long and hard enough. It feels like I am zooming as I see lots of different transparent like colors in spherical shapes come towards me as my vision is directed to the center of them so it feels like I am going through a tunnel. They can be any color... Sometimes purple, green, and sometimes orange. Also, if I want to at night, but only up close right in front of my eyes, I can see like galaxy like swirling black liquidly shaped spots faintly always swirling in a circular motion. I'm pretty sure that's it's just a re-action from maybe straining my eyes and I believe that I am just seeing these things which can be explained rationally but I do wonder about it...
Now that I am older, I feel that I probably block out all the weird things that happened to me while I was a kid and I don't experience any of these things anymore. My mom would tell me it's like an on and off switch and I want to see it. I probably can but I reallyyyyyyy don't want to see it. Anyone else's thoughts or explanations would be wonderful or if maybe you have experienced something similar would be nice too. Especially about the last part would be good to hear about maybe anyone thoughts/experiences about it.
