As long as I can remember I've been seeing people that when I ask about them my parents have said I'm mucking about. They stand in the corners of rooms or walk past me, some look angry so I get out of the room as quick as I can, but others just don't have an expression at all. I figured it was spirits when I was 7 and at school.
There is a bench at my old school that is dedicated to a girl that died crossing the road opposite. I didn't know that at the time because I was in reception so I couldn't read. I kept seeing a little girl sitting on the bench, but whenever I asked my friends who it was they looked at the bench and said there was no-one there. When I could read I found out who the girl was, that was in year 2. I stopped seeing her after I went and asked her who she was.
All my life so far I've seen people wandering around but I never actually heard them talk. Then when I was in my bedroom this person walked in and ran at me with a sword or knife screaming. It was the first time I'd heard one of the make a noise, but I was petrified, I did the obvious and ran.
Now every now and they talk to me warning me if something is going to happen, sometimes I can prevent it, others I can't, other times they try to hurt me though I'm not quite sure if they actually can.
There have been numerous other times when I've realized they are from the past and I even made friends with one of them. There a still the ones that try to harm me though so I have a dried nettle next to my bed as I've read I stops them harming you as you sleep.
I've been seeing them increasingly more now and I'm really scared. Can someone tell me how to do this shielding thing as I don't know how to do it. Also any help would be appreciated as I'm still new to this. There is a spirit watching me as I type this.
