Shadows And Psychic Confusion


It all started when I was 5. We had just moved, we were living in an apartment before, but found a good deal on a old house and bought it.

The first few days felt normal, pleasant. We had been unpacking all week and needed a break. So mom told me to get the ice cream out of the Basement freezer, I smiled and ran to get it shouting happily (well, I was only five). I flew down the stairs and suddenly stopped on the bottom step. It was ice cold, dark and there was a pressure in the atmosphere that I couldn't explain.

I bolted to the freezer and grabbed the ice cream, ran back up stairs and told my mom about it. "Mommy mommy! There's something downstairs!"

"I'm sure It's just a mouse, Tallis. It is an old house after all"

"No! It's not a mouse!"

I grabbed her arm and lead her downstairs. It was gone! No coldness, no darkness, or pressure. She pulled out of my grip and scooped me up, carrying me back up the stairs. Introduction

As we left I saw it. A dark shadow flitting around the corner. I tried to brush it off as my imagination, but it got worse.

A couple years later I had turned 7 and started seeing them all the time. I would refuse point blank to go into the basement, because when I did the things would follow me taunting and scarring me.

I had nightmares about the things in the basement as well until we moved out a couple months before my 13th birthday.

After we moved I started feeling and hearing things others couldn't, getting Deja vu left and right, started seeing little white lights out of the corner of my eye, felt sick around happy bouncy people and wild animals would start coming really close to me.

It's been 2 years sense then and we've moved again, but I've started seeing and feeling the shadows on top of everything else. I've also started having nightmares almost every night again.

What should I do?! I'm really confused about all of this. I would love some help understanding what my powers are and why the shadows are taunting me again. If you have any ideas please feel free to share them.

Holy crap I am scared shiatless after reading this. 2 years ago when I was 14, during math class, my teacher was talking and then all of a sudden, in the corner of my eye on my right side, a friggin BLACK arm/hand reached through the glass window on the door. My friend also saw it but nobody else did. We screamed our asses off and kept talking about it the whole time after that. What does that mean?

Alright I'll try that on them tonight. If it doesn't work I'm going to try a salt ring around my bed. Thanks Lyro ❤

I've seen supernatural too, but I've never tried a salt ring. Lol. I meant an energy shield, to help block like you said, unwanted energies.

Thanks for the help, Lyro. I was wondering though. When you say Shield do you mean like the kind I use too block unpleasant energy, or like a salt ring?

Sometimes stress can cause nightmares and sickness. Learn to meditate and calm yourself. As for the white dots, they could be orbs, the reason you see them in the corner of your eyes is simple. To view spirits, and ghosts, in the simple since you need to lose focus on the world around you, to gain more focus on their plane. The corner of your eyes is perfect for this because your main focus is in front of you, but just a simple movement from the side view can trigger a response. The thing is however, when you turn, or try to focus on it, then you can't see them anymore because you're more focused on the physical world. As for the shadows, normally shadows don't hurt you, but if they're trying to hurt you, I would suggest putting up a shield for yourself. They may be making you sick, which the shield will help protect, but in my opinion, it's probably the stress of seeing them around that is making you sick. Just try it and see if it helps.
