My name is Alyssa. I am 17 and ever since I was about 7 or 8 I started seeing auras around people's head, shoulders, and arms; almost like a form of energy if that makes sense.
And I got used to it even though I didn't even know "aura" was what it is called. In school I could see anyone's aura with out focusing hard on a single person.
I thought I had vision problems until I realized this is what it has to be. I see a lot of yellow, pink, and an off clear/yellowish color when I look around a person's head, shoulders, and arms. However, the same way I see aura is the same way I would see spirits.
Around the age of 7, I started seeing spirits, the same way I see aura. It's weird, right? Why can't I see spirits fully? Features seem to be difficult for me to see. I only see the outlines of a face -the eyes and mouth mostly, though I can't figure out why. I have seen many odd things in my room. I could have sworn to see portals often.
But, not only do random spirits come and go throughout the house where my family lives, which is over 275 years old, there is this (deceased) family consisting of a husband and wife and his son who was a soldier and went off to war.
I have seen the father numerous times in my room and this is the one spirit that I can perfectly describe in appearance.
He was a heavy overweight man with white hair, maybe it was a powdered wig, and was wearing a blue uniform with a strange blue triangular hat, colonial era, possibly?
However, the strangest experience within my rather long story is one I am about to share. I was on the stairs just standing there talking to my parents asking what they were watching on tv and all of a sudden my whole body turns cold, frozen, even my blood felt cold. I feel this surge of sadness, depression and worry almost like I'm dying and I'm not ready to die. All the mixed emotions leave me and I am about to cry for feeling such an experience. Turns out, the wife who lived in this house many years ago had died of pneumonia.
