When I was younger I always knew that I was different, and I'm sure that's how a lot of these types of stories start out. What I mean is that I always thought I was sensing things that no one else around me was. When my grandfather was dying in hospice care I was about 11 or 12 and I can remember sitting alone with him and sensing someone else in the room. I felt like there was someone standing just behind me looking down at my grandfather. My grandpa looked up just above my head, seemingly looking at this figure that I felt. I just remember staring at him, wondering if he saw it too. Then he had looked back down at me and told me that he would miss me very much. I could remember feeling this presence in the hospital as well and my grandfather always looked in the direction of the presence. It felt like it was someone there to take him away at the right moment. This was one experience.
Since then I have seen my old dog running through the house on multiple occasions and even heard him barking when there are no other animals around. Frequently in the night I am awoken from a deep sleep because I can feel an energy come into the room, but it seldom feels threatening. Sometimes I can feel this energy come into the room and I immediately just feel like it's my old dog. A few times recently I've been developing high anxiety and depression and I have felt a really threatening force in my room. A few times it has gotten so bad that I started to have a panic attack. I can sometimes think I'm seeing a dark figure in my room but only once have I been absolutely sure that there was a man standing at the foot of my bed looking down on me but not in a comforting way.
Also, I seem to have the ability to know things about people, living people around me. Frequently I have been able to detect what is going on in a strangers life before I even meet them, primarily their relationships with other people and some personality traits.
What I am wondering is if I posses some medium capabilities or other paranormal abilities?
