I Don't Think I'm Special


Can a person see ghosts or do ghosts reveal themselves?

I'm not going to pretend I'm gifted, and to be honest I question if anybody really is. I feel like if something really wants you to see it, then it will be seen. Some people don't have to work as hard to see spirits that want to be hidden. Some painters don't have to work as hard to paint, but everyone can learn.

I don't see ghosts and I don't feel anything extraordinary on a regular basis. If I get cold suddenly my first reaction is to turn off the ceiling fan. I don't believe people who tell me ghost stories, because I have quite a few and I haven't shared them. Why would I? I can't take anyone seriously if they introduce themselves to me and a few days later they're telling me how they see dead people with this grin on their face like they know they can whistle when you can't.

If you have really seen them, you take it more seriously than whistling. The topic demands a lot more respect than stupid, ignorant middle school kids could ever get from their idiotically inspired classmates. This is something that causes people real pain.

I get awful nightmares every night. They linger with me all day and I'm afraid to go to sleep again. I'll wake up in the middle of the night and think I'm finally up. I finally escaped. Only to fall asleep again to find I'm right where I left off. I've never had a good dream, not once. When I was in kindergarten I dreamed about things I hadn't been introduced to yet, things that a girl my age doesn't even have the words for. How could I pull my waking life into my dreams if my waking life never had these influences? There's no way I could have dreamed the horrors I dreamed as a small child.

I couldn't stand to have open doors in my house when I was little. I drove my mother crazy closing them all the time, but I was anxious. I hated the feeling that something was hiding from me. I didn't want to be caught off guard when it decided it was tired of hiding. I was protecting myself from a feeling, something I couldn't name. Even now, there's always that hush in the air like something is watching me, waiting. The apprehension is the worst part, because even though I can feel it around me, it's not me that's apprehensive. What will happen when the wait is over?

When I got older, physical things started to happen. When I was home alone sometimes something would pull my hair. Sometimes it would hurt. I fell down the stairs a lot. Most of the time it was just me being clumsy. Sometimes I felt something wrap around my ankle mid-step and make me miss the next stair. One time I was too heavy to pull myself out of the deep end of my pool. When I was finally able to breach the surface of the water and breathe, my neighbor's was dog standing outside the screen fence. It sounds stupid to say I think it saved me from drowning, but I think it did.

In high school, I started having experiences with opaque, black masses. They gave me different vibes so I can only assume there was more than one entity involved. One instance took place in the early morning. It was still dark at 6:00 am, but there was enough light from the street lamp outside the windows to see in the hallway.

I was just about to head down to the kitchen to get breakfast before school when I saw it crouching at the base of the staircase, blacker than the dark. I could not see the stairs underneath it, or the wall behind it. I was wide awake. I blinked but it was still there, and this time it was moving. It crawled on all fours, but it was humanoid. It moved like it had muscle, like every part of its body had a function to perform. That was the worst part for me. It moved like something real.

I was frozen in place long enough for it to get halfway up the stairs. Nothing I have ever felt before has ever wished me more harm. I knew in my gut that if it got a hold of me it was going to do whatever it could to make me suffer. I reached behind me for the light switch but I couldn't feel it and I couldn't take my eyes away to look for it. I started crying. It was getting closer. I sank to the floor. It was right in front of me. Desperate, I shined my iPod light in its face. I'm not sure when it disappeared, but by the time I got to my feet and found the light switch, it had vanished.

I've had people come to "cleanse" my house a few times before when my parents weren't home, but I can still feel that something is here. Whatever they did to fix it didn't work. They are still here. I can feel them waiting.

I don't think I'm special. I think I'm unlucky. I've moved three times, and each time my family was the first to live in that house. Are they following me? I also don't think they're ghosts. Ghosts were human once. These things. I don't think they were ever alive to begin with.

Well I do not know how to get rid of it, and I don't think you should try to get rid of it. Maybe if it's not something you want it may just go away on it's own. When you have experience's like this, it is because of you, as humble as you may be. Well... It cannot be possible without devine intervention, and your third eye is opened by higher things for you, but ultimately you must be quite good for this to happen. The practice you do has it's teacher/master to whom you can call to in your times of despair. Eg. For christians = Jesus, buddhists = buddha ect. That is where you get the faith to over power a demon. It all stems from faith, which will become your own.

HI, I can tell you one thing I know exactly how you feel. I do believe that I am an empath and I think that you may have something too. I think that there is something following me from house to house and it really does scare me at times. You may not believe me or think its rubbish but it seem to help from time to time. I picture a bright light covering the doors blocking anyhting dark from coming in. Its just a suggestion and it seems to help a little. I am also suffering from the same anxiety about open doors that I have to have my door closed at all times and before I moved we lived in a haunted house where I actually locked my door to feel safe. I'm sorry I'm just rambling but I am really relieved to know that someone is experiencing the same thing. If you find out anything else about the issue would you let me know.

Hi there! Sounds to me like you may have the gift of mediumship. What you need to do is learn how to meditate daily and shield yourself psychically. You must learn how to attract positive energy into your space rather than negative. Absolutely nothing can hurt you, but negative entities may cause you to be afraid or think they can hurt you. There is spirit energy all around all the time, good and bad. Negative entities pray on fear. Please read this story, it's so true: Once you learn how to gain control of your energetic field, you may find that you are sensing positive energy. That which you focus your attention on will only get stronger. So try praying to your Archangel, spirit guides (even if you don't know their names, you can talk to them and a name might eventually come to you), or a close relative who has passed away. You also have these entities around you all the time, every moment, but for some reason you are not at this time able to feel them.

I've not had much trouble myself with negative entities. I used to have extreme fear of the dark. I am in my 30's now and it's embarassing to admit that it's been a lifelong problem. Even when I was in highschool, I would slink onto my parents' bedroom floor because I was too terrified to be alone. I admit that up until a year ago, I still desperately wished I could do this, but I've lived away from them for 15 years now, so I would just suffer from insomnia. I began meditating regularly 2 years ago, and my whole life has changed. In the past year, I've completely lost my fear of the dark. In fact, I can now sit comfortably in the pitch black to meditate. It's because dark or light, I am highly aware that spirit energy is surrounding us at all times. Why be any more afraid of the dark than of daylight?

I also have gotten some very scary faces in my mind's eye. I literally tell them that they can not bother me. I let them know I am not afraid and I call on my grandmother's spirit to come closer to me.

Also, look into Spiritualist churches in FL. If you find a good one, you may be able to find people there who will talk openly to you about this and give you concrete guidance. This is what I did. I sought out like-minded people... And when you seek, you find! You are not posting on this forum by coincidence! One girl I met was tormented by dark entities, I'm talking about horrific stuff I won't repeat. She learned a lot from the Spiritualist church pastors when she approached them about her situation. She now has things under control and she is EXTREMELY gifted. She locates dead bodies and reports them to the police and she diagnosed a major health problem of mine that took 8 years for specialists to figure out.

Following a righteous path is an excellent thing to do, for you will attract that which you are. Like attracts like.

Hope this helps in any way. If you don't know how to meditate, you can email me at GreenPsychic [at]

P.s. There IS a lot of "New Age rubbish" out there. When people do not have the gift of mediumship, they do a lot of damage talking as if they know what they are talking about! 😉 ❤

Oh no, no. I'm sorry. I mean, thank you. I appreciate the comment, but I really don't think I have any gifts. I just feel that something out there picked me at random and is making my life a lot harder than it needs to be. I am spiritual, though. Obviously I believe these things can happen. However, I don't think it's due to any talent of mine that I've experienced these events. I already follow a path that I believe to be righteous, maybe that's why they are here- to try and pull me off of it. Ultimately I just want to get rid of the issue altogether so I feel safe for once. If you have any suggestions on how to do that I would love to hear what they are, since I really don't know the difference between a legitimate practice and New Age rubbish... I generally try to avoid talking to people around me about things like this.

Sounds to me like you ARE special and you need to find a way to protect yourself from these things which is possible. To me, you sound very spiritual in nature, which means you have good inborn qualities. In fact if you follow the righteous path, these things will become nothing compared to you. Find a path that is suitable for you, but make sure it is a true path, and not some sort of rubbish new age practice.
