Being There And Knowing Things

 

Ever since I was a young child I've had the "ability" to see ghosts. They would communicate or try to with me. Some of my earliest memories are of ghosts interacting with me. As I became older I began to experience powerful feelings and overwhelming emotions. You could say that I had my "awakening" while on a family trip through civil war battlefields in MD, PA and VA. I was around 13 when we were on this trip. As we traveled around these sites I would feel things which I believed were associated with knowing that the place was a field hospital or a mass grave or any area where many people died. I thought that these feelings were just because of knowing the history of these places. What didn't make sense were the feelings I would get at places that were not part of the battlefield parks.

The first one of these feelings that was not in the parks was rather traumatic. We were at a gift shop in an older building in Fredricksburg VA. The place was a two story building that must have been remodeled on the outside since it didn't look like something from the civil war era (1860-1865). On the way in, according to my mom, I did not want to walk through a particular area on the covered porch. While in this shop I had the distinct feeling that there were people in there; I felt despair, hopelessness, and fear. My parents went upstairs to the other part of the store. I did not want to go up there; needless to say I was parentally compelled to come with them. I remember distinctly feeling abject terror as I walked up those stairs. There was no apparent reason to feel any of this. There were no plaques or markers identifying any historical significance to this building. The store had lots of stuff dealing with the civil war, but there were no museum displays or any artifacts on display. As I went upstairs I started to panic, but I tried to keep my composure. As soon as I reached the top the sense of terror dissolved into a feeling of grim resignation. I thought that my imagination was just being overactive until I entered the front room of the second floor. Once in that room I felt a crushing sensation. The air was unbearably thick and suffocating.

Now here's the weird part. I found compelled to walk around the perimeter of the room or down the central part of it. There were no obstacles I needed to navigate away from. While in that room I felt pain. I also felt exhaustion. I smelled a sticky sweet smell up there that my parents did not. At this point I thought I saw a table in the corner near one of the windows with whitish cloth and a shiny object on it. I tried to investigate it but this is when I saw a ghost looking at me from the opposite corner of the room. He was wearing what I thought was a brownish dress. I panicked and ran down stairs being quickly trailing concerned mother. The rest of the trip was not like this, the feelings were more confined to the parks.

My mother had purchased ghost books and macabre history books of Fredricksburg and the battle that was fought there. About a month after the trip she found a map marking the locations of union encampments, supply depots, and field hospitals. The gift shop was a very busy field hospital after the failed assault on the heights outside of town. My mom contacted the shop and found out that the operating theaters were located in the upstairs room that I fled from. Much later in chemistry lab in college I smelled the same sent that I smelled in the gift shop. It was that of chloroform. I cannot say with total certainy that it was the same smell, but it triggered this memory.

Since then on other trips in the USA and in western Europe, I have had similar feelings in places we visited. They were not as frightening as the first experience I had, but they still were disturbing. It's eerie to know things about places that aren't in the published guilds to these places. It's neat to know this type of information, but when you tell people about it, especially tour guides, you draw very weird reactions. I am very fortunate to have a mother that's very supportive in this area. I found out that she has been able to interact with ghosts since she was a little girl. She totally understood where I was coming from with these feelings.

I have read through a few books on psychic abilities, but I'm still not sure what to call this ability of mine. Through reading these books and talking to the owner of the metaphysical shop they were purchased at, I learned how to control these feelings so that I'm not perpetually crept out going to unfamiliar places where traumatic (physically or emotionally) events occurred. He also did a past lives regression on me (which I'm not sold on the concept of this existing). He related that I was a surgeon at one point in my "past". This might be why I've been drawn to the medical profession since I can remember (currently in medical school).

Any and all input would be appreciated! Thanks for reading!

Here's a question for y'all. I've read on several sites and some books that mediums need to do all sorts of things for protection when communicating with spirits. I've also read that those of us who were born with the ability are able to know intuitively which spirits are good and which ones are bad/mischievous/malevolent. If someone could shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it!

I personally, right now, am leaning towards the latter because of an experience I had when I was ghost hunting some time back. I saw 3 black shadows (not shadow people) while we were outside on a golf course. I knew intuitively they were evil and apparently they knew I could see them. They were about 100 yards away and within an minute they were circling around us. They were, however, leaving the other people in the group alone but "gunning" for me. They didn't cause any issues other than fear, I ran like a scared coed in one of those slasher flicks.

The thing is I feel they singled me out because I knew what they were and that's why no one else in the group was "attacked" by them. No worries about possession, I've been to church and received communion without any problems.

Great! Take care. And cherish your new relationship with the spirits. They trust you.

Congratulations! I'm happy that you were successful. You received a headache because you have used the part of the brain that is normally not used. Average people only use 10% on a typical day. So, that's to be expected.
But, after you sent him away I believe he came to me. Around 9:00pm I started to have chills. (The heat in the house was fine and I just finished a cup of green tea). So, I put a blanket on and I feel colder and I put another blanket on. I think to myself, what spirit in this house has a cold effect? Only one but he's normally not that cold. Then I realize. Today is Wednesday! It's your guy! This sometimes happens. So, he was like ice cubes and I tell him that he has to move on. I felt like my body was frozen to the core but I could still move freely for about 2 hours after. By morning he was gone.
So, you did great but only do that again if the spirit goes directly to you. You must respond to a spirit in order to show them that you give the rules and that you are not afraid. Take care.

I think it worked. I found. A nice "deserted" corner of the lab and I opened up, after praying of course. I Explained to him what was going on. He still seemed upset, but after I talked to him the feeling in the room lifted greatly. I have encountered a side-effect though, I got a splitting headache afterwards. Is this normal for someone who doesn't have much experience in talking to spirits?

That's great news. I will be looking forward to find out what happened. Good luck. Remember to say a prayer before you talk to him.

I've got a time picked out this Wednesday to try and explane to the guy what is happening to his body and to try and get him to more on. The lab will be mostly empty except for a few of us over achievers so there shouldn't be anyone near where I will be. I'll keep y'all posted.

Hello,
You asked, "What is the difference between a mediumistic experience verses a paranormal ghost experience?"
A mediumistic experience means that you are directly interacting with a spirit or entity. It is making contact with you directly and you are understanding the message. This is what you are experiencing. The spirit came to you for answers.
A ghost experience can be as simple as just seeing a ghost or many ghost (s). But, they do not try to communicate with you. And, you may not be able to understand what they are telling you.
If your mom wants to help you with your spirit then by all means let her. It's always better to have another with abilities assist you in these matters. And, it's cool that she supports what you are experiencing. Also, always remember to pray to your God for protection before making contact with spirits. Hope this clears things up for both of you.

I was talking to my mom about all of this and she ask me a question that I can't answer. What is the difference between a mediumistic experience verses a paranormal ghost experience?

Why do you have the need to get my attention? Why don't you concentrate on helping others when you make a comment. It is rude to post a comment that does not help or guide the person who is seeking answers/advice. You have quickly forgotten who it was that helped you with your two stories. And, so what if I made a typo. There is a high chance that I will do it again. And, not on purpose either.

I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you would not have the chance to be alone with the corpse. I meant to harm by that. And please, do not tell anyone in medical school anything about this. Also, never use a ouija board for any reason. I'm glad that you know this already. My only other idea is to go somewhere so that you will be alone. Think of the spirit and see if he comes to you. Then tell him what happened.
Don't put your career in danger by waiting to be alone in the lab. Someone may become suspicious of your actions.

I had to go to anatomy lab today and thought I might try to explain what had happened to the male spirit's body. Unfortunately there were a fair amount of people in the lab, as well as the ghost. I couldn't talk to it per se, I can't have people at school thinking that I'm out of rehab and off my meds (aka. Beyond crazy). I tried talking through thoughts, but that didn't seem to work well. I'd think what was going on and the spirit didn't respond. I guess I've got to figure out how to improve that part of my abilities. I might, maybe this next week or so, hang around until everyone is gone and try to talk to it. Oh and there's no way in hell I'm breaking out an ouija board! I learned that lesson along time ago.

Studentdo,
Ok, it has begun, you have made the final connection with the spirits.
The male wants you to explain to him what happened to him. You see when someone is killed like that the incident is so fast that the body does not register with the spirit side what happened. That's why there are a lot of hauntings. People's spirits walking around wondering what happened to them. The way to help him is to tell him what happened and that he has passed on. He will go to his next plain after that.
When a person dies only the physical body dies. The spirit still lives. It will still linger (in this situation) or go to the next plain (in a peaceful & natural situation).
Do like your mom does if you want it to stop. And, don't worry, the spirits trust you to tell them what happened to them. The word has alreadt been sent out. You are a witness to that. I'm sorry but you are now a ghost whisperer (medium). Take care.

Thanks eagleclaw. I talked to her about how to control the spirit interactions and she says she ignores them and they usually give up, if not she shuts herself off. I'll need to work on that. Also I have had quite a fascinating experience in the anatomy lab (I go to med school) the past 2 lab periods. We got a fresh batch of bodies in and my group got one of the new ones. It seems that one of the spirits from one of the bodies is not to happy being there. It communicated with me through feelings of frustration and anger; not too fun. Later I saw it in my mind's eye. It was a male milling around the cadaver cooler. I kept feeling the word short in my head. I went over to another body and before I could even look at it, something said my name. I looked down and there was a body with its head removed. I think it was pissed about being decapitated. Most people who donate their body's to science don't "fully" understand what it means to be anatomized.

Hello,
I would like to tell you more about your ability. It is really not all retro cognition. What you are doing is interacting with the spirits in their time. The spirits come to you and show you by changing the scenerio of where you are to the time in their life. They want to show you what is going on with them. Can you control it? Yes, you can meditate more often so your senses are more aware of what is going on around you. Spirits sometimes give off signs before they show themselves to someone. A sound, moving something and/or changing the room temperature. But, if I were you I would not encourage too many visits with the spirits. Why? You have not met an angry spirit. They are very scary and will haunt you. But, as you become more aware of spirits, anywhere that you go if a spirit is there you probably will see it. Ask your mom, she knows what I'm talking about. Hope this helps.

Yeah, the entire shrink thing lasted for maybe two sessions. It's amazing what happens when you tell them what they want to hear. Also, one thing I don't understand about this entire retro cognition thing is why it just happens. I can't seem to control the knowing part. When I've tried to use my ability it doesn't seem to work. Other times it just hits me. Is this a normal thing for this type of ability or something that I can develop so it works all the time when I choose to use it?

Hello,
I'm sorry to hear that you were sent to a shrink. In regards to your past life/lives I have more information that I would like to share with you. From what I understand, it seems to me that traits carry over to the next life in some people. I don't think everyone has a past life. Maybe you were a doctor or in the medical field in your past life. That may be why you have a more detailed understanding about the medical tools. And, it is true about a spirit passing knowledge to you. Many years ago, when my aunt passed she came to me as a ghost and gifted me her abilities. I already had some abilities but hers were more stronger. She was born with a veil on her face. So, you could have had the knowledge from your past life and/or from a ghost who passed you the knowledge. Hope this helps you more.

My mom said she felt something but ignored it because it creeped her out. I did find out recently that she and her mom had abilities. I think my mom is an empath. I recententy talked to her and she told me that she saw residual battles being fought while we were at Gettysburg and antiedem; she said nothing at the time not wanting to freak us out.

On the past lives thing, I don't know if I buy it, however that would explane that I knew, before going to med school, how to use the surgical instruments seen in the old field surgery kits. It was more than saying the saw was used to cut through bone; it was the order to use them and how to cut off a limb "the right way". I've heared of ghosts passing you knowledge, but not like just knowing it. I told my parents what each instrument was and how it was used. This freaked out my dad and earned me a trip to the shrink.

BTW quixoticqt, no offense taken to all you said. It great to chat with people who have had similar experiences. I learned very quickly not to tell anyone about what I felt or saw. It's nice to get these things off my chest.

Hello,
That's wonderful that your mom is very understanding about the feelings. Did you ever ask her if she saw anything when she was at the shop? For you, I believe the ghost was trying to show you what was happening at that time with smells and visions. Unfortunately, it was your first time. In regards to past life regression, I've had it done to me a few months ago. I was put in a hypnotic state and the visions of my past lives came to me. This woman also seen them too with me. She named them with me. Now, I have a much better understanding of why I am the way that I am. For myself, what I was shown I believe to be true. Just my opinion. Hope this helps.

Thanks for sharing your story.
I'm sorry but I'm not sure what kind of ability you have. I know that meditating or praying will help you cope with your feelings. Prayer helps everything.
For your feelings of past live regressions, your spirit knows something is amiss.
Once I was compelled to watch a lady who did past life regressions she was very persuasive, I even wanted to call her after but I know in my heart that what she was portraying it to be was wrong.
The best answer I could find was that there are those that record past lives. Those that record past lives live today; they live forever because they're supernatural. These supernatural beings (as I would see them as) live with each of us. A guardian, angel, or even a demon or imp for they used to be angels. This woman and the man who told you your past life regression have the ability speak to those who record individual past lives that they oversaw.
I believe that each guardian/supernatural being would be assigned to each one of us according to our abilities. I also believe that each and every person on earth has one life to live and one life only.
If I offend you for my beliefs in any way I don't mean to.
