Real Psychic Experiences

All in the Family


This may sound odd, but all the women on my mom's side of the family have had experiences with spirits. Almost all of us have seen spirits like an opaque image of a spirit, and we commonly just sense the spirit and know exactly who it is that is trying to get our attention.

We all started seeing/feeling the spirits around 12-13 years of age. It is almost always a passed loved one who is coming to visit, even if we never met them before. I've been wanting to become more in touch with my abilities now that I'm not petrified of the spirits (haha!). Some of the experiences I've had are doorknobs turning, the typical strange noises, the doors opening or closing, water faucets turning on and off. The spirits often come at night when the lights are out.

Once I was laying in bed and my heart started racing and I felt really scared, and it's hard to explain but I can just tell that there is a spirit in the room. Then "someone" sat on my bed. Bed sunk, sheets pulled, pressure. Very strange. One of the most powerful experiences I have had was a while ago and I had been digging info on my family tree. I was looking at a very old picture and I saw this woman and my heart sunk, I recognized her and felt really drawn to her. Apparently, she was my great grandmother's great aunt or grandmother... Some sort of relative that I would never have known or seen before.

That night, I was in bed and felt a spirit and obviously got really freaked out. Then it was as if she (the lady from the picture) was holding me down and I couldn't move a muscle, I tried to speak and I couldn't. I know she wasn't trying to hurt me, I think she was more just trying to tell me "hey, I am real, believe yourself, don't be scared". That was when I was really struggling with this whole spiritual experience and I doubted it. Since then, I have accepted it.

I also experience a lot of spirits of deceased family members in my dreams and they are usually just telling me something like "I love you" or they are trying to tell me something else. I much prefer these experiences because they are not as frightening! One suggestion I do have to people who are scared by these spirits, is to honestly just tell them to go away... It sounds silly but they will listen! Tell yourself they can't hurt you and that you are not scared, and it will be okay!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to become more in touch with these spirits that are trying to reach me? Do you think I can get in touch with more than just my family (and should I want to, ha ha!)?

I'm very new to this whole psychic stuff, however I find it really intresting that your strongest experience was when you were researching your family tree. I too have been building and researching my tree and ever since then I've been having weird things happen to me too. I'm hearing voices speak to me, I haven't had enough guts to answer them back though. So bravo to you for not beening scared anymore ❤

I have a similar background. Growing up with abilities and have spirits in my house. 2 of them are not family though. I now have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who is showing signs of having the same abilities.
If you were a friend asking me the question "should I try to get in touch with other spirits?" my answer would be NO.
You will seriously regret it once you run into a demon.
I would not seek spirits out. I made that mistake when I was 14 years old, a few years after realizing my abilities.
Also growing up with a few spirits in our house I personally know they are not all nice.
Actually, that is why I'm online.Research. We're fighting one right now. The same one that gave me trouble as a child is now around my daughter and it's much worse.

You can communicate with them through telekinesis (talking through the mind.) If you and your female relatives are all pyschic and you see ghosts, this has probably come naturally to you, too. A lot of people also have dreams, in which they communicate with the deceased. I'm glad you are over your fear of spirits, because there a still a lot of people who aren't. Try talking to the spirits through the mind.

Hi I have seen ghosts and spirits I know they don't hurt you. They come to you for a reason maybe help or something. They come to the right people people who have a gift. People use oujii boards to get in contact with spirits because they think it fun and want to see one. I think that is terrible and awful to mess with one. They can bring bad spirits and evil to you. I would just say they will come to you If they need you.
