I am not even sure if I am posting in the right area. I think I may need some guidance. I am 31 years old and there have been numerous occasions where I have seen spirits. My earliest recollection was when I was around 8 years old. My father was doing my hair while I was in the bathroom and I passed out. I believe my fainting was due to the heat and eating several Popsicles during that day. While I was unconscious, I could still hear my father and sister's voice but I could not come to. I also saw several angels, I mean real angels circling me. I do not remember seeing their faces. There must have been at least 6 - 10 of them floating above me and circling me. I did not feel scared or startled. I think I was just more amazed. When I came to, the memory stuck with me. That was my first personal recollection.
Over the years, I've seen spirits randomly. My mother said that when I was in the 5th grade, I told her that a man and woman was sitting on my bed looking out of my window. I do not remember this, but she said I told her that story. When I was 19 or 20 and in college, my high school sweetheart broke up with me. I was very depressed. I didn't eat for days. A strong male spirit came to me while I was sleeping and I woke up feeling like I was being watched. I saw a dark complexion man in white looking down at me. He was about 8 feet away from my bed. He had long dreadlocks. I felt a sense of calm that night... That was the first time I felt that way in almost a week. The next day, I felt better. I showered, ate, and went to my classes. I joined a creative writing class that week. My depression was lifted. Deep in my heart, I felt like he was my spiritual guide... But I'm still not sure about that.
When I was 25 or 26 years old, I was in my apartment that I shared with 3 other roommates. While sleeping in my bedroom, I felt someone looking at me. When I opened my eyes, a short and stocky man with a hat was staring at me. I felt startled, but eventually closed my eyes and willed myself back to sleep. That morning while hanging out with my roommates, I told them about my late night visitor. One roommate asked me what he looked like. I described him and she had a look of shock on her face. She told me that my description sounds like her great grandfather. She said I described him to a T. She later confirmed that my bedroom used to be his office. Later that week while I was looking for something in my closet, I found a very old pair of eyeglasses. When I moved into that room, I thoroughly cleaned it from top to bottom and I didn't see the glasses then. I gave the glasses to my roommate. She later gave the glasses to her father and he told her that it was her great grandfather's glasses.
The last incident that I am going to tell you about happened when I was about 27 or 28 years old. My boyfriend, who is now my husband, and I went to visit a friend and her husband at her family's vacation home in Cape Cod. Her family vacation home is gorgeous but very old and has been in her family for a very long time. I felt a lot of energy when I went into the home. One of the areas that I felt a strong sense was at the bottom of the stairs. I had a feeling that a woman died there. I could not put my finger on it. I could not see any spirits, it was just a feeling. When we were sleeping in one of the bedrooms, I could not sleep. I felt like numerous eyes were on me. I did not see anything, it was strictly a feeling. We only stayed there for a weekend, and I hardly got any sleep. It was just too much energy in that house. There was even an area in the back of the house that I refused to go into. I had a very bad feeling about that area. While leaving that house, I was telling everyone about my experiences. The friend told me that she heard that a relative of hers fell down the stairs and died in that house over a hundred years ago.
With all of these experiences, what does it mean? What am I suppose to do with it? What is it called? I do not feel afraid, but I do not want to open myself up to negative things by being open to paranormal activities. I did not choose for this to happen to me, but it does. And if this is a gift from God... What should I do? I am so lost and confused, I need guidance.
