I had always seemed to feel things, things that my mother did not feel or believe. It was sad really, since my mother would stare at me as if I was crazy and become rather irritated and annoyed with me. Physically, I've always been sensitive, crying at simple things and feeling automatic fear when I knew something was wrong. Spiritually and mentally, my sensitivity was stronger.
I always feel that there is something watching me, something that is no longer alive. Most of the time, this watching is within my room, and more specifically my walk in closet. I later concluded that there is the spirit of a young boy in my room who I like to affectionately call "Derek". I always treat him in a friendly like way, as if he was my little roommate. Not only can I feel spirits in my own room, I can feel them in other places, only finding out later that those said places are in fact haunted. For instance, I believe my first psychic experience happened when I was seven years old, and I was at a famously haunted location called Ringwood Manor.
During Christmas, there is always a 'Victorian Tea Party' exhibit at the manor, and my Mom once decided to take me, finding it very interesting. During the walkthrough, I slowly began to get a headache, and I would begin to see things at the corner of my eye. It was frightening for a little girl such as myself, and I began to get more distant and quiet during the night. I believe my Mom told that I at one point muttered: "Please make them go away." It was only until I was 15 did I realize that Ringwood Manor is one of the most haunted places in America, and that I was not just crazy. There was something there.
Now I am 18 years old, and I began to feel a connection between myself and fortune telling, and I have even visited a woman who I believe to be really a psychic. As soon as she touched my hand, she smiled and told me how strong my energy was and I should be mindful of what I see. It was scary about how she said that, but at that moment I began to feel as if I needed to enhance this gift I had. So I bought a beautiful deck of Tarot cards, and that is when my next strange experience happened.
It was one of the last days of school, and I brought my deck in to show my friend who is interested in this type of stuff. My teacher, seeing my deck, began to get excited and asked me to give her a reading. I happily agreed and gave her a 'Past, Present and Future Reading', allowing her to choose her cards randomly and place them in front of me. I felt the cards and turned them over one at a time. I at once began to feel some sort of aura, my teacher's aura, within the cards as I gave her their meaning. Once I finished, my teacher's eyes were wide and she told me that every single thing I said about the past and present is completely true. I felt shocked, not sure what to say. That shock then soon turned to happiness, feeling almost glad that what I said was true. I had actually given someone a true psychic reading.
I believe soon that I will have more psychic experiences for all of you, as I have now offered myself to become a medium for a Paranormal Investigation Team my friends formed called F.E.A.R. (Face Everything And Research). Our first mission is actually going to be Ringwood, the place I had my first paranormal and psychic experience. I hope everything goes well!
