Real Psychic Experiences

An Ability Passed Down? Or Something Else?


So some might now about my little going on about empathy, yes? Now were going to go on to a different subject. Some call them spirits others call them ghosts, I personally call them both.

I don't particularly know the difference, really haven't had the time to think about this what with getting piled upon piled with homework to contemplate this.

So were going to start with a story, about my mother. She was around 8 years old when this story which is true other wise this would obviously go to waste and I'd be wasting... So yeah. We will just call my mother the little girl because it feels kind of weird typing out mom while writing about a 8 year old girl.

This takes place at my great aunts house in Munising, Michigan. My mom was playing barbies up stairs, this upstairs is basically an attic. Well this house once belonged to, way long ago, a man and his wife and their family including a the mans mother. So one day the man comes home and he's just a lunatic and murders his daughter his mother and his wife then committing suicide himself. Well, that's what they say anyway.

So the little girl was playing barbies when another girl comes out of nowhere, she is a little older than the little girl but she asks to play barbies. Well who is the little girl to refuse? She's an only child and playing alone.

So the two girls play together, this would happen often sometimes the family would join sometimes it would just be the girl.

My great grandmother soon found out about this and told my mother some information that would be quite important when she had children of her own: Seeing spirits, ghosts and other such things ran in the family.

Now this comes all the way back to me. I grew up knowing things other kids didn't pay much attention to. I noticed the door slam shut, I noticed the man that was stuck in time I guess you could say who would always turn on and off the sink and close the cupboard door. So I guess it's safe to say that I was a special child, still am since I'm only 13 what I still consider close to being just a child.

What I would like to know is why would this run in the family? Why are some of us more aware of abnormal things? What can I do about it, because frankly ghosts freak me out. I currently have two buddy ole pals A little girl and 'the man' following me about.

'The man' is gone. I can't sence him nor see any weird crazy out of the blue things happening any more. My second focus now is Alioth. My other buddy I briefly mentioned.

I named her Alioth because little girl gets boring and irritating to say all the time.

The first time I saw her I had been talking on the phone. Looking out the window I looked for my mom who was picking up my sister. When I turned back around, there she was. She has puffy hair in two pigtails and she was wearing a uniform. I dropped my phone out of shock and when I looked back up she was gone.

I can still feel her around the house though. She's an emotional wreck. I can tell when it's her by the unexplainable feeling I get and the feeling of being stared at. She's mildly interested, then she's bored, angry, disgusted, and hopeful, then the most dominant emotion being sad. I would really like to help her. But honestly I don't know how, I would like to communicate with her but once again... I don't know how. Can someone help me? I have a feeling it starts with meditating though...

That is not necessarily true. They often are attracted to confident individuals who they believe can help them pass on.

Like I said, just tell him to move on and if he (or she!) doesn't, then use the other methods I listed before.

Just make it clear that you do NOT appreciate the ghost's presence. If things go from bad to worse though, get some professional help.

All of this information helps... A lot. Okay so this is what I gathered from my readings and your answers.

Clairvoyance is when you can sense, feel, see, and hear things that are not want some people call normal. Mediumship is when you communicate with spirits and ghosts.

There doesnt' seem to be as much information on mediums as there is everything else and I wouldn't mind learning more about them.

So banishing ghosts I've learned is more easily said then done... Well for me at least. My friend was over and something happened mainly the ghost scaring the bejesus out of my friend!

Oh and my mom doesn't like watching scary movies sometimes or anything negative like in the house because some ghosts... Spirits are attracted to negativty like bees to honey. Is this true?

Well it would seem that you have some form of psychic ability which is waiting to be developed 😊

It definitely sounds like it runs in the family so even better, not only do you possess the ability like everyone else, generations before you have also had a developed gift - that makes it a little easier to train.

Firstly, there is a difference between ghosts and spirits - a slight one, but still very important!

Spirits are the essence of people passed on. They are beings that essentially help those delving into the realms of the supernatural. Needless to say that spirits can also be harmful of course! Spirits, however, belong to their own realm, not that of Earth (i.e. Heaven, hell or whatever your beliefs have equivalent to that).

Ghosts, on the other hand, are spirits that have not yet passed on. They are the ones that are coming to those who can sense them, for revenge or help or to try (occasionaly) to live through them. These have not yet passed on to the after life and are in a kind of limbo.

If you cannot sense whether a ghost is harmful or not or what a ghost wants from you, banish them. It's not difficult and they will go find someone else, usually. If they are sending you signs, it's probably for a reason but once again - your safety is what matters.

There are many things you can do, each of them- because they are good things - don't use up any of your own energy, but instead just extend that of the Universe's.

1) Say the Our Father.
If you know that prayer, it's never failed me. All spirits and ghosts leave upon completion and cannot harm you during.

2) The blue, gold and white cloaks.
Some say blue, some say gold some say white, I say all! Picturing yourself wearing these, one on top of another, or even one garment incorporating all of these colours, will protect you from harm. It stops them from being able to hurt you.

3) Forcefield.
Picture a forcefield around you, one which only that you allow can enter. Obviously it only effects the supernatural, but you can also use it to protects against negative emotions while only letting positive ones through.

4) Close your bedroom door.
A lot of the time, people leave out this basic step. If your bedroom door is open, it is a sign or spirits and other things to enter. Close it, picture a lock on it and then a layer of bricks if it comforts you more. Make it clear that your room, if not your house, is off limits!
They'll get the message and leave you alone.

Sorry for the long comment, hope it helps,
Cinnamonwarlock 😊

In the case of Clairvoyance I would use meditation techniques to help relax the mind a body and that will allow you to 'open' your senses 'beyond the normal'.

As far as being a Medium goes...I'm not so sure on this one... Let me do a bit of research and I'll get back with you.

Psychic abilities definitely runs in families but some things can also be learned to a certain extent like being an artist. With the right teacher and a lot of practice anyone can draw but at some point talent takes over. In the same aspect someone can be talented but if they never pursue it then the talent never gets developed. Both my mom and dad have expressed some type of low level intuition that they have ignored and there for never developed as well as my grandmother as far as I know. It could be that the combination of both my parents having some sort of mild intuition genetically gave me a boost. I have noticed my 3 year old is showing signs of being an empath. I spent the past 15 years developing and made something of the talent but even today I am constantly working at it. Another thing I have noticed is that as I get older the abilities get stronger and more develop. You are young and just getting started. My best advice is get a strong support system and read read read. Be a sponge with knowledge and take things from there.

Warm Wishes,

That did help but now I have more questions. Now I would like to know 'how to' in the best way you could put it, if that makes sence...

Here are the bare bones definitions of each...

Medium (noun) - paranormal; somebody believed to transmit messages between living people and the spirits of the dead.

Clairvoyance (noun) - ability to perceive things that are usually beyond the range of human senses.

As stated these are the 'bare bone definitions' of each, are you asking 'how to?' or just wanting more information on what each ability allows a person to 'do?'

These ablities may run in Family lines or can be 'learned' traits. You may have a 'natural aptitude' for one or the other or even both.

Not sure if I'm helping or muddleing things more. Please let me know if this helped, confused you or left you compleately in the dark... 😕

Could someone enlighten what mediumship is really about and maybe clairvoyance? I know some things but I'd like to know more.

I don't know if it is genetically linked, but I strongly suspect it might be. There is evidence in the Bible that the prophetic gifts are passed down in the bloodlines.

Plus my readings of Buddhist scriptures and Eastern folklore tell how bodhisattvas like to reincarnated inside their family line.

I definitely think there is link between blood and the spirit world. What it is I am unsure, but the religious and spiritual literature is filled with links to blood sacrifices. I wonder how the women's ablility to substain life is connected to our month mense cyle?

Spirit and ghost I just call angels. There are different levels and some our fallen but that's just how I use the word depending on who I'm talking to. Church elders like the term angel better than spirit or ghost. Me I don't think it really matters, the message is more important than the messanger.

Actually, from then research I have done, if you are a psychic, then there is a 50/50 chance that your child is going to be psychic. I was the lucky one out of me and my twin, odd I know, but he probably isn't smart enough to handle psychic abilities. He inherited the athletic genes, but I got intellect and psychitivity.
Rook misses his turn thinking about something else. 😕

I agree with Darkstar. I also think it could be possible that you could be seeing your spirit guide...

Sorry that I'm not much help.

I would say that clairvoyance runs in your family maybe some meduimship. Basically you and your can interact with the spirit world.
