A Night On The Canal


I'm Bailey. I'm a 14 year old guy. I am a medium but I don't know what exactly to call myself. I have both the characteristics of clairvoyance and clairsentience. I can sense and feel ghosts; and I can feel their emotions. I also can touch an object or look at a picture and sometimes be able to know (I don't know if that is the right word to use) the history of it.

The Erie Canal is a canal that runs through the upstate part of New York. About a month ago a group of friends and I were in a town called Spencerport that the Erie canal runs through. My friend Chelsea thought her friend jumped in the canal because he was very depressed and mentally deranged at the time. While it was still light out my friends and I to walk up the canal path. After walking about a mile Chelsea's phone rang and it was her friend calling to say he was fine and asking where she was. Just to inform you it was now around 9 o'clock and it was almost pitch black out. We kept walking a little bit just to enjoy each others company. While walking we became unaware of the time and unaware of our surroundings. My friends know I can sense presences and how I act when around them. Usually if it is a nonhuman presence I stay very still and close my eyes; and when it is a human spirit I am less careful. About a mile and a half up the path I felt a very strong nonhuman presence in front of us. I stopped immediately and closed my eyes trying to determine if it was a threat and trying to understand where it came from and what it wanted. My best friend and pretty much my sister immediately noticed my distress and asked if I was alright. I told her and my friends to go under a sort of gazebo with a light in it and that I would be right behind them. They understood immediately and ran towards the gazebo. I stayed for about a minute trying to assess the situation. I realized immediately that I was in danger so I quickly caught up with my friends and we all ran into the gazebo with the light on.

While under the gazebo we waited while and I told my friends what our situation was. I told them that we needed to protect ourselves, I told them that we needed to concentrate our energy and try to make a wall for the gazebo. The shadow figure? (if that's what I should call it) or nonhuman spirit started to flicker the lights in the gazebo, and my friends began to freak. I told them to be quiet and focus and not pay attention to that. The figure stayed outside of the gazebo flickering the lights for about a half an hour. After waiting in the gazebo for awhile my friends moms came to pick us up. We all went to the cars and sorta got yelled at and were unaware of the presence for awhile. We all got into our cars and drove home. We thought everything was fine.

To my knowledge this part might not be true. My friend Natalie that night couldn't sleep because she said that something kept her up.

I would just like to know based on what I have told you, was that a demon or a shadow figure or just a poltergeist.

Thanks for reading! I will write soon I hope!

Also, with touching or looking at an object & knowing it's history, I would categorize that as psychometry. You could do some research from there if you want... I've found some pretty interesting things.

It could of been a person=) BUT I mostley think it was an evil spirit (demon/poltergiest).ect Oh... And FYI. Most of the time the power of the barrier is determend by your faith in god. Tell your friend to read the bible and to have faith in the lord. 😉 😁

I don't know, but if it was psychically strong enough to flash the lights, I'd be careful. That's me though.

I'm not going to discredit you with your abilities here, but this figure almost seems as though it were a person with abilities just like you. I also get the feeling you were very lucky to have you friends mom arrived when she did. People with abilities don't always use them for the right things. There are bad people out there. Be careful. From my knowledge the northeastern parts of the United States seem to have an abundance of differents that use their abilities for wrong doings. My best advise is to just make sure you never get alone out later in the night. You seem very strong with your abilities, but please just trust me on this: Those bad people are much stronger then you. And it also appears as if the being that caused this did indeed follow your friend home. I would have your friend be very careful. Hopefully this helps.
Best of luck,
P.S. When I say differents I am referring to people like You and I who have abilities.
