When I move to a new home/apartment I feel like I can sense the energy of people who lived there before me. I also get a vague vision of their face.
The first time this happened was at my father's house which is in a rural area. I had a vision of a woman's face aged around 60 and a younger man around the age of 40, they appeared to be from around 1930. There were other faces as well, but I could not focus hard enough to see them clearly. I asked about who had lived on the property before we did. My dad said that there had been a farm there almost 100 years ago, but it had long-since been abandoned. We don't have any specific information on who lived there.
Again, at my mother's house I got a vision of a family living there. A dad, mom, and two boys. When I asked about the people who had lived there before us, I was told it was a family: a dad, mom, a two boys and a girl. I was even correct about the boys ages.
Later in life, I moved into an apartment with my boyfriend. I felt as if a single man had lived there before us. I asked about the previous owner and found that it was a single man. I was right again.
My boyfriend and I moved two more times after that. Each time, I had visions of the faces of the apartments' prior tenants and both times I was proven to be correct. I was even correct about the races of the families the childrens' ages.
I believe all these people (except the people from the 1930s) to still be living. My visions are not threatening or violent. I simply see faces in my mind's eye. What is this called? Is anyone else experiencing this? Can this be used for any purpose?
