My sister has always seemed to have a "sixth sense". When she was a lot smaller, she could see things. For instance when we visited Pearl Harbor in Hawaii where so many people died. We were viewing the sunken ship in silence. Being only 4, maybe even 5, she was unable to read and therefore, didn't understand the gist of it. It caught my whole family off guard as we were standing in silence when she piped up to let us all know that "It's okay mommy, all the angels are flying down there". Other instances include her seeing an entity outside my mothers window at night. She hasn't had many instances anymore, now that she's older, but I always was somewhat jealous that she could see things, that she had a gift, and I didn't.
I had never seen any entities, but I always felt presences, and scared myself silly at night. I'm 19 years old and I still sleep with the light on some nights, because I always feel as though something is in the room with me. I try to dismiss it and say it's all in my head, as our house has been blessed, and there's simply nothing there.
Recently, I went on a road trip in the western states. While traveling, my boyfriend picked up a crystal necklace, that claimed to have healing powers at a shop alongside the road. I thought nothing of it, as he is greatly into self healing.
While visiting different places, I would notice clouds of smoke arising around but not always on someone's head in my peripheral vision quite clearly, but when I would look directly at them, It would be gone. It looked like they had just released a plume of cigarette smoke- to my best description. I had a few of these experiences and quite honestly didn't think about them, just shook them off.
We visited a famous hotel, called the Stanley Hotel, rumored to have a lot of paranormal activity. It was actually where Stephen King wrote his novel "The Shining" based on his experience there. I had been there before and took a tour, so I was remembering what I had learned, and telling my boyfriend all about the hotel. We visited the famous room that is supposedly haunted, then went upstairs to the third floor to check out the "Nanny Room" which is also said to be haunted. While standing outside the door, I saw the plume of white smoke again- and was overcome with a VERY strange feeling. It wasn't frightening, yet it wasn't soothing. I was frozen with my eyes on him, but yet I could move, had I wanted to. I hadn't felt this feeling any of the other times when I had seen that smoke before. I promptly asked my boyfriend if we could go, and we did.
The next time I had an encounter was at Disneyland. Now that I think about the crystal, If it had anything to do with it, I remember just before I saw the smoke, I had hugged my boyfriend, my temple right where the stone hung around his neck. After that I walked out of the store to see smoke gathering around a strangers head. That feeling came back and I just stood there, staring at the young, blue eyed man. He stared at me, too, just as soon as the cloud had vanished. I felt like I should be all awkward afterward because I had gaped at a complete stranger... But I wasn't. I had felt like we knew each other.
After being back and being away from my boyfriend for a week, It hasn't happened since.
I still don't know what caused it or even what it was, but I have a feeling it had something to do with that stone.
