Fascinated With The Paranormal


I guess I should start my story from the beginning (and I warn you this may be a long one so escape while you can). Ever since I was young (around 5 or so) I was deeply fascinated with the paranormal. From watching those lame ghost shows to playing with the Ouija board, I could never get enough of it. One night in particular, I remember lying in bed and I heard a strange shuffling noise. It almost sounded as if someone was crinkling tissue paper in their hands. I opened my eyes and I saw this strange dark blob (now it was dark in my room but this "blob" was darker, so it was easily visible). I then watched as it flew around the room and then disappeared. Whether that was a ghost or something else, I am not too sure, but that was my first paranormal experience.

I am 16 now and recently I have been having strange occurrences. Whether this may just be some strange coincidence making me extremely lucky, or that I maybe have some sort of "gift", I almost always know when the phone is going to ring. At first, I thought I just had great intuition. But after a while, it had become so apparent that the thought of "Gee, the phone is about to ring" popping in my head, followed by my lovely Nickleback ringtone kind of gets me curious. Also, many times when something "bad" is going to happen, I get really sick or bad stomach aches. I also seem to always have headaches. Is this some sort of "gift" or am I just crazy?

Also, I have done a lot of research into Empathy and I am thinking that I may have this ability as well. I can remember my Mom taking me to my psychologist every two weeks to talk about my "problems" and "bi-polar depression" when I was around 10. I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar depression but I never really believed I was bi-polar. I think it has to do with this Empathy. I can look at a person and immediately become overwhelmed with these emotions that I knew had no belonged to me. At first I was quite afraid, thinking that I was nuts! But now, being 16, I still feel these strange emotions when looking at someone or speaking to them; its almost like I know what is exactly wrong with them every time; I know what they are going through. My family always jokes that I would be a great Therapist because I know how to get into peoples' heads. This ability would be very cool because I would be able to help out others, however it seems to consume me and I always feel exhausted and overwhelmed. If I do have this ability, it would be really nice if I could just turn it off from time to time cause it really takes a lot from me.

Does anyone have any advice for me? I just really am confused and not sure what to do. If anyone has any advice or similar experiences, I would love to talk with you! Thanks for reading!

Blessed Be!

Your story sounds very much like mine, I was the same way but stayed away frow the ouiji boards, I am also an empath. The only advice I can give is try to put up a barrier that blocks the negative emotions out, it will help some. Also meditation could be helpful, can't say I'm all that good at it but to each there own.
I know its not much help but I hope you at least get a little relief knowing you are not alone and don't worry your sanity is fine, your not crazy.

Well, you COULD be a great therapist, but only if you can control your own emotions. I mean, if you were being a therapist for a suicidal person, would you really want to feel that bad? Plus, what if even though you could feel the way they do, and offer help, what if they did kill themselves? Could you live with that guilt, already feeling the depression? You have to look out for yourself too, not just the pain of others.
That said, DON'T say you're crazy. Honestly, I see so many people on here asking "am I crazy?". Enough! If you feel maybe you're jumping to conclusions, just ask "am I jumping to conclusions?" It makes a person in general sound more solid. On this site, you'll never be told you're crazy. But in the rest of the world, people are going to want to see you're weighing options. So if you say from the start "am I crazy?" they'll likely agree cause its the easiest explainable answer. Get it? (I'm not trying to attack you, you're just young, and have a whole world of doubters ahead of you, which you'll have to prove wrong).:-p
I have no idea what the blob thing was. I feel I've seen blob things at night too, but I usually just chock it up to my eyes adjusting. However, if you're playing around with Ouiji boards, who knows? Maybe you invited something in, even if just for a quick visit.
So in closing, you're not nutty. Take care of yourself, I don't agree with meds either. I think if you're feeling depressed, its more important to find the source and to surround yourself with things you enjoy. Though meds might make you numb to the depression, they will also make you numb to the happiness you could be feeling too. Just remember that.
By the way, your story wasn't long, but this answer probably was.:-p sorry!
