Do I Have A Gift Or A Vivid Imagination?


I have to be honest, even though I read the instructions thoroughly, I'm still not sure if writing this on the right page.

When I was younger, I used to feel like something was following me around the house. Once I even thought I caught a glimpse of it. A dark shadow in the corner of my eye. This, I am aware of, was probably just my imagination playing a trick on me, but nevertheless, I consider it a part of the story.

I used to have a desk that had been at my grandmother's house. One morning when I got out of bed, I noticed compact powder on the desk. Neither I, nor my mother used make-up. I asked my mother why she had given it to me and she had no idea of what I was talking about. I showed her the box and she told me that she had bought it several years ago, but she hadn't seen it for a few years.

Another thing which appeared on my desk was a children's book, which I recognized when I looked though it, but my mother couldn't remember reading me the book, and didn't understand how the book or the compact powder had made its way to my desk.

When I was about 10-12 years old, I was in the Philippines with my cousin. I remember waking up one morning and seeing someone walk into my cousin's room. I figured it must've been her mother (this figure was only a few metres away from me), but when I got there, there was only my cousin in the room, sleeping. This, I also realize could just be a figment of my imagination.

For the past few years, I've been feeling like an emotional sponge. By that I mean that I share the mood of whomever I am with or close by to. Every night I feel drained and empty. It feels as though I have no feelings or opinions of my own, because I am constantly filled up with the feelings of others.

I'm not sure if I am scared of the dark or if it is something else, but I can very often feel a presence. It doesn't feel like someone dangerous, nor someone unharmful, it just feels like this presence is standing in my room, constantly staring at me. I also feel something almost "chasing" or hurrying me around the apartment sometimes, but that could also be imagination, as I am well aware of.

Without being too specific, I have also felt the uncontrollable urge to cry when something, that would hurt me once I found out, was occurring.

I may also point out that my great-grandmother was somewhat of a self-proclaimed psychic. I'm not sure about the specifics on this part though.

What I guess that I'm hoping for, and this is why I'm not sure if I'm on the right page or not, is help to understand and channel these emotions and maybe try to figure out more about the presence that I am sensing. I just wish I could make sense of more.

The basics with dealing with a spirit or any entity are a few. You need to be able to protect yourself and sometimes your familly too. You must have a very strong belief in your God, your self and that you are the one in control. You cannot show any fear at any time. Did you know that fear has a scent and a vibration of its own. I know this because I can smell/feel emotions from people. And, the spirits do the same. You do not need to say anything because your aura will send the signals to them. Even if you are protected a spirit will sometimes go after someone you love who is unaware and unprotected. Most spirits will only show themselves and try to give a message to you. That's fine. But, there are spirits or entities who can materialize things like yours. Yes, she did not do anything else and that's great. I've had one spirit materialize knives and throw them at me. Thank God for bad aiming. And, another who possessed my sister. So, that is what you may be confronted with. And, that is why I do not encourage meetings with spirits or entities. I would only say that it is good to find and get to know your spirit guide. He/she will be there if you meet a spirit. Hope this helps.

Well, it's been a couple of years since I found the compact powder and the book, and I know that these things aren't a game, but I guess I would like to learn how to handle the situation, as you said. Do you have any tips on how to do that?

If I were you I would take the wait and see road. Most times its not good to encourage a spirit to show itself unless you know how to handle the situation. Especially if the spirit can materialize objects. The spirit will show more to you if it wants to. Just remember to ask your God for protection if you ever see or meet the spirit. You cam also tell it to leave you alone if you want to. It's up to you.

Thanks for your replies, it feels good to not be labeled as a crazy person... Do you have any tips on what I could do to learn more about how I could learn more about these spirits? If it is my relative, I would really like to know more about him/her.

it seems to be that you are a medium and an Empath. If your like me you can go to a mall and become overwhelmed with emotion, also be careful as some of the spirits you encounter may not be the spirit of those people it may be a demon, even the strongest of mediums and psychics can't distinguish between them

The two things on the desk where put there by a spirit connected to your familly. They are clues to who this spirit is. For some reason she is here to show or tell you something. It's a message for the familly. She's just telling you that she is there watching. Just my opinion.
