Are Spirits Trying To Contact Me Or Am I Just Paranoid?


Since this is the first time I have visited this site let me introduce myself. My wiccan name is Skyfire but my given name is Theresa. I am 33 years old and am married with two beautiful children. I have talked to a couple of people about my experiences and they believe I may be a medium. I am not sure what to think but I will tell about it. Maybe someone has had similar experiences and can help me figure out how to control/develop my gift. If indeed that is what it is.

The earliest experience I remember is lying in my bed at my grandmother's house in Johnstown, PA. There was a stairway to the attic in the room behind a locked door in the corner. I remember being woken from a dead sleep with the feeling that someone was staring at me. I was about four or five years old at the time and was really scared.

I looked around the room. Obviously, I did not see anything but I felt very frightened and the overwhelming feeling that I was not supposed to be there, like I needed to leave the room as soon as possible.

I closed my eyes tight and pulled the covers over my head. I then heard the attic door swing open. A few moments later it closed and latched. The key for this was not in that room and the attic was kept locked at all times!

Over the years, this happened every time I stayed in that room. No matter which of the other three bedrooms I slept in each time it was as if something was telling me to get out. It progressively came to the point the feeling hit me before I even went upstairs or to the basement.

The next experience I remember having is after my mother and I moved in with my step-father in Western Maryland. Everything was fine for a while and then one night I awoke to find people sitting on my bed.

I did not know who they were. I was about seven or eight years old at this point. It was a woman and two men. The woman was sitting by my side, there was a man sitting at my feet and the other man was lying down next to my feet. The woman just kept telling me everything was going to be alright.

I threw my head under the covers and began to shake. I thought I was just having a nightmare but I could hear them talking to each other even under the covers. I was paralyzed and could not move even if I wanted to. Finally, the feeling of terror went away and I peeked over the covers to find my bedroom empty again. I began to sob uncontrollably. I called for my mom but she never came. These experiences happened quite frequently until I moved out of that house.

I have had the feeling that someone is following me numerous times and when I look over my shoulder there is nothing there. I only spoke to my mother about this once and she wrote it off as being scared of the dark. After a while, I began to think she was right. Then, it started happening all the time.

My mother and I went to pick up my little sister from a birthday party. I was thirteen at the time. It was a very warm summer day and I was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt. The house her friend lived in was once part of the Underground Railroad. Her friends mother gave my mother and myself a tour of their home. Since it is an historic house nothing has changed since the civil war era.

I was fine until we got to the second floor. She took us to the attic, placed her hand on the doorknob and I got the overwhelming sensation not to open that door.

When she opened the door, an ice cold chill went right through the center of my body. I immediately became very nervous and had the overwhelming urge to get out of the house as fast as I could.

The last encounter I will share with you is after I moved to New England. I was living with my husband in Connecticut. I was pregnant with my son and was 24 years old. My husband, my daughter and myself decided to take his grandmother with us on an outing.

One of the historic houses in Suffolk, Connecticut was having an open house. We toured the first floor of the house and I felt someone following me. I pushed the feeling aside because we were in a tour group and just thought that was the reason.

We climbed the stairs to the second floor and I got the same feeling again so I moved to the back of the group. We entered one of the bedrooms and I became overwhelmed by something in that room. My head began to swim, became nauseous and I felt very faint. I had to grab my husband's arm so I would not fall over.

We went outside and got some fresh air. When my head cleared, I decided I wanted to finish the tour. So, we reentered the house and went directly to the second floor. We went into the same room and it hit me again like a ton of bricks.

If someone could please help me understand what is happening to me I would really appreciate it. There are times when it feels as though the "spirit"/"energy" is just curious. Then there are the times when I am scared it wants to harm me.

I would just like to know how to control it. When I meditate it becomes progressively worse. I have stopped meditation but I am feeling very "muddy". If you meditate you will understand what I mean. Please help me.

I believe that in your first experience a sick child died. What you saw were his mother, family, and maybe a doctor. Your spirit or soul may have travelled back in time and been at the scene of the incident.

When I feel I'm in the presence of hauntings or I see ghosts, I pray to the old ones (the older souls that are farther along such as Jesus for christians or, as an analogy, let say we are in elementary school and you ask a college sudent for help). I ask the old ones to counsel this spirit entity to move on. (What I believe is they need to know that they are dead or that this experience has concluded and they need to go to the light, go to the spirit world, go through so called counseling and mentoring there, and then be reincarnated.)

You will be doing this entity a great service if you succeed in helping them cross over instead of remaining attached to a life that once was.

There was a building called the HUB at the University I attended. During a Native American Pow wow I was patted on the shoulder, pinched in the waist, the fire alarm went off twice, and a bat flew down and touched my head in front of everyone in the middle of the arena. Finally a medicine man spoke of spirit entities playing a role in all this and he said a series of prayers. I spoke with other employees in the building and it turned out I was not the only one experiencing the hauntings. Furthermore, after this pow wow in 1992, the haunting ceased. The employees in the building thought that the administrotor achieved this because she died that year of cancer so I let them think this was the truth and she might have played a role in it.
My psychic tells me that there was an Indian village there at the sight of the building. They had not crossed over. Something at the pow wow bothered them so they pulled the fire alarm. The bat symbolized to them that everything was alright and that I was a good person. However, this community of ghosts did cross over due to the prayers said by the medicine man on the second day of the pow wow. These hauntings must have been going on for years.

Your experience sounds somewhat like mines. I'm slowly learning and am starting to understand where all this is taking me. I am also learning how to control my fears. I've noticed that with more courage, things seem to become more clear and easier to handle. Some of these freightening experiences were because of visitations from deceased loved ones, others just trying to get a message across and sometimes it was just my guides. I've also expereienced the incidence of someone sitting at the foot of my bed and me not being able to move, as if I was paralyzed. I'm still not sure who it was, it could have been one of my guide or my late grandmother in law but now I know they meant no harm. I've also learned that it is me who needs to accept what is happening to me and learn how to handle it, not try to prevent it. It seems the more you try to get away from it, the worse things seem to get. Hang in there, time is our best friend at the moment.

I've ignored it well enough for seven years now. I believe "it" is sort of a pressence (s). I'm only 13 but I'll tell you something that might sound as if I'm 30, "Their just bullys, just show them you don't care" the intesity will wre off when your used to it
The only problem is that "it" has come bck again. I get emotional when I read books and, well, I got scared for the character. They smell fear. I think I got it under comtrol now though.
Never fear, litterallty, they won't hurt you, they like to joke though if you trip around your childrens bedroom, that's why.

Tori14, I am glad to know that I am not the one who thought they were just afraid of the dark. How did you learn to deal with it? Did you embrace it or try to ignore it?
The reason I ask is because my daughter and my son have started feeling things and have seen a couple of things in their room. I don't talk about these things in front of them because number one I don't want to scare them.
Number two, some kids have a wild imagination and if they are just telling stories then I don't want to encourage it.
The sad thing is I totally believe them. There have been nights when I have walked past their room and I have felt something watching me. Like it was warning me to keep walking. I have cleansed their room several times and it seems as though it is time to do it again. They just have to clean their room first. 😆

Thank you PathR. My husband recently bought me a tiger's eye. I think I will start wearing it when I am meditating. I am willing to try anything at this point because it can be rather unsettling to be woken up by something saying they are coming to get you. Thanks, Skyfire 😊

skyfire 2 7,
Many of your descriptions are indicating you are seeing and sensing spirit activity.
Ice cold chills through center of body.
Overwhelming urge, head swimming,nauseous. Your experiencing ungrounding a pulling of energy from yourself as if you could pass out.

Your right about meditation opening one up.

May I recommend you look into your wicca and use herbs/stones/rituals for protection and grounding. Also incorporate knowledge for clear areas.

Even in a haunted area one can have a good night sleep.

I can see spirets to. I have been able to see them since I was two I used to be scared of them to or thinking my mind was playing tricks on me and I even told myself I was afraid f the dark. As it turned out I had the gift to see into the spirital world. What you were feeling and seeing was all real they might be trying tell you something or from the story when you said you saw about eight of them on your bed they god have been comforting you because you could have had a bad dream and they were worried about you or you were having a vision a saw what hapend in the past from when there was a different family living there and you were seeing it through another persons eyes.
