I would like to start out by saying that this does involve something that might be classified as a haunting but I'm not being "haunted" per-say. I just believe I can feel them in close proximity to me.
Ok, so basically I have always had a keen sense for knowing when someone was sneaking up on me. When my mind is clear, and I am rather relaxed, no one can sneak up behind me at all. I always feel them. For instance, when I was in school - as laid back as I was - it was always easy for me to sense someone's presence anywhere in relatively close proximity to me. Back then, I would say that the closest I remember feeling someone was about five feet. It's not that far I guess, but still gave me enough time to turn around and surprise the would-be surpriser. If that makes sense.
Anyway, about sensing others...Today, funny enough, I walked out of my bathroom and went to the kitchen to get a drink, and I felt a strong presence in my dining room/living room area. I looked around, but didn't see anyone or anything so I continued back to my room. Without telling me, my girlfriend was hiding out in the dining room, waiting to surprise me but I never passed where she was. In fact, I wasn't even within ten feet of her. So, I thought that was interesting.
Finally, even right now as I type this (but mainly when I am home by myself and walking outside of my room) I sometimes can feel someone near me. It looks at me, wants my attention, and then I don't really feel it again until another day or even as little as ~five hours. I don't know what it is, and I apologize if this is a little too much of a haunting. Just thought I'd share. It doesn't feel like it's a malevolent being, just someone who maybe passed over. Maybe a family member?
So, I guess my final thought should actually be a final question. Is this something to do with being psychic? Or is it just everyone's ability to be able to feel other people's presence? Thanks in advance!
