It's been a long time. I'm not going to go through a whole bunch of details; my life has changed a lot and it probably won't interest you.
Not long after I posted my last story, I decided to hold back my own gifts and such and try to live a mostly-normal life. Some scary things went down and I just needed a break, needed to be reminded of who I am beyond that stuff. And for a while, it worked.
But then strange things started happening, as they do from time to time. I would close a door and a light nearby would turn on. When I got upset, something electrical, like a light or TV or something, would flicker or go out entirely. Our power goes out about twice a week. And I keep getting this unmistakable feeling that something or someone is watching me.
One day at work, my fellow employee and I heard a crash downstairs, like someone had fallen and knocked something over. She insisted I go down there and see what happened. I did, but everything was in its place, and I got a weird feeling so I went back up the stairs. She said that I had to go in the other room and really check, so I took a breath and went inside. There was no one in there, but as soon as I went in the fans that were on switched off.
I told my employee this, along with a couple of other things that had happened over the years, like all the fans in my friend's house turning on when I walked in or lights going on and off or anything she owned that was motion-sensitive going crazy. I also brought up a few things from recently that I mentioned above. She said something along the lines of "You have an unusual gift... You should use that to your advantage. Practice." I was stunned, because she never talks about that stuff, and I usually don't unload on people like that. I didn't have time to ask what she meant, and it's been bothering me ever since.
Does anyone else feel like this? If so, what are your experiences with it?
