I have been "sensing" spirits since I was a child. The first thing I remember was that I would see black shadow cat shaped figures out of the corner of my eye and when I would turn around there would be nothing there. I have always sensed other people or things with me. 99% of the time I feel as if I am not alone. It scares me but I am trying to learn to live with it and embrace it because most spirits wish us no harm.
My grandfather died when I was 4, and my grandmother (who is psychic) would always say that I could talk to him just like she could. I remember seeing him as a child, and talking to him but I was so young that I was scared of it. I assume that he knew that it scared me, because after a few experiences he stopped coming to me but he would still visit my grandmother.
My uncle died when I was a teenager. I went to the store for my mother one day and I saw him in line in front of me. He was talking to the girl at the register and he called her the nickname that he always called women. When it finally hit me that it was him was right when he was leaving the store. He didn't turn around to face me but I knew it was him. I dropped the items I was holding and went running out of the store after him but he wasn't there. When I came back in I was out of breath and the cashier asked me if I was okay. I asked her did she know who that man was and she said "hun, there wasn't anyone in line in front of you."
I believe that the house that my husband and I bought 2 years ago is haunted. The spirit doesn't seem to wish harm to me, and I can sense someone there. Even my husband has noticed strange things, such as lights being on once we have turned them off, the rooms getting cold for no reason, and noises. I feel the person almost all the time that I am in the house, I haven't tried to make contact with them because I am a little scared. I don't know how to begin to become comfortable with my "senses" and get over my fear. I would appreciate any help or suggestions that you all have. Thank you.
