Strange things have always seemed to happen to me and I knew they would, as they do to both my mum and my grandma. However, these things have always been small and could be passed off as coincidence, but this year around the time of my 22nd birthday, more and more things started happening.
It started the week of my birthday and I would be thinking "wouldn't it be strange if I saw my friend driving this way" and then they drove past. Or going in to the back garden and not knowing why and seeing a tennis ball there and then the door bell rings and someone asking for the ball is at the door. Or picking my phone up and thinking of someone and then they call me. These things sometimes happen but I often think of it as coincidence.
Then on my actual birthday, I was in a shop and someone whispered "SOPHIA" in my ear really urgently, so I looked up and no one was around. No one ever calls me my full name either. I felt really cold and had a strange feeling that I can't explain. I have never heard voices before.
The week later I woke up in the night and saw an old man holding on to the wall in my bedroom staring at me really hard. I was shocked, closed my eyes and opened them again because I thought I was still dreaming, but he was still there and I had a really strong urgent feeling that he wanted me for something. I shouted at my boyfriend and hid under the covers as I was scared but he said there was no one there and when I looked, he'd gone.
Then at work the other day, I had my head down and heard someone say something like "I'm OK" or "Are you OK" so I said "what?" and looked up but the corridor was completely empty and no one was around.
I don't really know why I'm suddenly hearing voices and seeing things this year. I have questioned if I'm just imagining it but I know I'm not and the voices are so clear. I think I'd like to know more about this and what these voices/images are. If they are "spirits" I'd like to know why they are trying to get my attention and how I could fine tune my abilities if this continues. I don't know anyone who has died before so that's why I don't understand why they'd want to "contact" me.
