Do You Know What I Am Or What I Should Do?


I'm not quite sure where to begin except to say that I am very confused and would like to know what I am. Many women in my family seem to share my experiences but not as severe as mine.

Since I was very young I have had spiritual/psychic experiences, although for quite a long time I chalked it up to child hood fears and insecurities. As I got older however, I grew more concerned that I wasn't quite as crazy as I feared.

As a child in my old house, I was afraid for years to sleep in my bedroom for one key reason: the figure in my doorway. It was a dark shadow (which I have been told was a bad sign that I was able to see its color), that would lurk in my doorway everynight until the last possible chance when dawn finally approached. The figure never entered my room, and believe it is because I never gave it permission to dwell there. I never explained the reason to my parents as to why I refused to sleep in my room, and so until the day we moved (I was 12 at the time) I slept with my parents.

I now live in a home that is in a neighborhood right next to the U.S. Border and is famous for not only its hauntings, but for the fact that many slaves came to Canada to seek freedom there. As I got older, my "gifts" as my family now refers to them, grew. Houses whose history I knew nothing about would send me into anxiety attacks simply by entering a room, filling me with uncontrolled emotions whose sudden appearance I couldn't explain (rage,depression,fear). People I knew nothing about would shake my hand and I would immediately know whether they were trustworthy or not (this may seem eccentric but to this day, I have never been wrong concerning my first impression of someone).

Within the past four years my experiences have grown further, and it now frightens me. I know nothing of the history of my home, and have been able to find none despite my research. On three separate incidents, a spirit/s have physically come in contact with me, and one incident in particular scared me in a very troubling way.

The first incident, I was sitting in my rec room watching television when "something", (to this day I'm still puzzled by this), grabbed my hair which was up in a ponytail and pulled it to the point that my head was jerked roughly to the side causing pain to my neck.

The second incident, I was sitting in a chair in my living room talking to my father. As a lull occurred during our situation, my father felt the hairs stand up on the back of his neck, and as he turned to tell me this he witnessed as I sat horrified and unmoving in my chair. What my father did not realize was that I felt someone I could not see standing over me with both of their hands gripping my shoulders. The horror I felt at that moment was indescribable, I had never felt anything like it before. My father then knelt in front of me to see what was wrong, and as he did I felt the pressure lift off of my shoulders and I began to sob uncontrollably.

The third incident was by far the most upsetting for me, but my memory of it is as clear as day. One night whilst sitting in my room at my desk, I felt a cold chill enter the room. Being that it was in May I found this unusual and whilst I was still seated, I turned in my chair to face my doorway; and that is when I saw him. Never had I had an experience as powerful as this until that moment, where I could see a spirit as clear as day in front of me. Unsure of what to do I attempted to get out of my chair, only to find I couldn't stand up. My legs felt like lead; an indescribable pressure filled my head and my arms felt so weak I could barely flex my wrists, and at that moment I knew he was the one keeping me in my chair. As he stood over me, I scrambled within my mind to think of what to say or do, but before I could do anything he spoke to me. He claimed I was his daughter, and that because he knew I was in danger he had to be there to protect me. I was stunned; this man wasn't my father, and I could tell from the anger in his voice he was determined to say. I could feel myself shaking with fear as I told him to move on, that I wasn't his daughter and that he could not stay in my home. For half an hour I struggled to will him to leave, and to my relief he left, never to return again.

Since then I haven't had an experience as serious as this, I have only been able to hear or feel emotions coming from spirits trying to contact me. I don't know what to do, what I am or how to control it, all I know is I'm lost. Can someone please help me?

most physics get their power from their mothers. That would explain why most of the woman in your family sharre your experinces. It is possiable that both of your parents have physic abbilities and that is why your powers are stronger.

To opheliahayne: How can you deal with seeing spirits and deamons? My family says certain occurrences have happened when I was little. But if anything happened today I have blocked pretty much all psychic ablitlity. I was and still am plainly scared to see anything.

Your story of the black figure in your door way really stunned me. In my old house, I saw the same thing, it never entered my room, just stood in my door way, and stared at me, and I could never get it to leave until I moved. I too, was too scared to sleep in my room. If you figure out anything else about that I would love to hear it! Anyways, in response to your question, I really believe that you are a strong psychic. You have some amazing abilities that not many people have, and you most deffinatley are not crazy. I'd take the time to practice controlling your abilities, that may help you feel safer if you have ways to control them. Also, you need to remember that you're far stronger than any spirit you come in contact with. If a spirit is bothering you very sternly tell it to "leave you alone." tell it that its not welcome, etc. If you're christian, hold close to your faith. Keep a cross, etc, to help protect you. Good luck:)

It seems to me, given that you have experiences outside of your home, and that "sensitivity" runs in your family line, that you are a medium. Spirits know they can talk to you. If a soul is stuck here on earth it is for a reason, and it is left up to us few "Gifted" people to help them move on.
Otherwise, it could be something haunting your house. Since there has been no activity since you convinced the spirit to leave, this could be a possibility as well.

The answer is something you'll have to find for yourself. But to experience something like you did, for such a long time and in such a real manner, I would most likely say that you are gifted in some kind of spiritual way. Don't be afraid, it is a beautiful gift, and there are beautiful patterns to existence most people don't know are there. Keep your chip up, and don't stop talking about it, either on this site or with someone you trust. Talking helps.

"never to return" is a long time. How long has it been since the last experience? Have you moved since? Are you still in the same house? Sorry to ask so many questions.

i was born with psychic gifts passed down from my grandmother.
I as well have seen demonic figures as well as heard demonic sounds.
Most of the time that I have experienced these things, I was either very tired or much younger.
Some people believe that a person with psychic gifts may be more susceptible to demonic or dark sprits when tired,sick,under the influence of medication or drugs, alcohol, or even depression.
What I have always done to help me sleep is I have always fallen asleep to the TV and I sleep with lights on.
if you don't prefer that, music is always good or meditation or speaking to your spirits/guardians will protect you.
just ask that they be with you and protect you from anything that could harm you in any way. Whatever you feel is best to say!
Also, sprits making physical contact is rare but happens often with those of us who are able to connect with them.
You can ask that your spirits/guardians/God/whomever help you then or you can right out tell any spirits present to leave you alone.
Nothing can hurt you other than maybe scare you or upset you.
Ive gotten through seeing many demonic presences as a child and as an adult, feeling a demonic presences, having precognitions about others being murdered that ended up happening later on,etc.
Although all those definitely scared me at the time, you will learn very quickly that you are above those things and nothing will be able to hurt you!
Evil spirits sometimes just take advantage but all you have to do is stand up to them and make sure you always know you're stronger than any evil spirits!
Keep a bible, cross, whatever makes you feel better also near where you sleep helps! Anything to help you feel better protected:)
