Am I Lying To Myself Or Are These Feelings Real?

 

My name is Lauren, and I am 18 years old. I am currently a senior in high school. My grandmother recently passed and since her death I can feel her presence; or so I think. I do not know if I am making this all up or if these feelings are true. So, here is my story and feelings.

As a child, I remember feeling like I was never alone; there was always someone or something else with me. I was always so scared to be left alone, so I kept from it as much as possible. I always asked my mom or dad to go to certain rooms in my house with me, so I could either retrieve something or put something away. Today, I still ask for someone to go with me to these rooms. I hate being left alone at home, because I feel like someone is watching me. I have become more comfortable being alone at home in the past year or so; but I still avoid certain rooms of the house.

Ever since I can remember, people have always called me an old soul. My teachers, dentist, family physician, and grandmother have all told and called me this. I relate to people easily, and I tend to become emotionally captivated by others. As a child, I could not stand to see someone being left out or being made fun of; I would come home a lot from school crying because of this. I, still today, cannot take watching someone in pain or sorrow. People's emotions effect me deeply, and I feel as though I can feel someone's emotional pain without knowing (for fact) that they are feeling a certain way.

After my grandmother passed, my mother struggled with guilt and sorrow following my grandmother's death. My friend urged me to go and meet with a psychic medium in hopes that my grandmother would come through and ease my mother's mind. So, my mother and I attended a spirit fair in our city. We decided to get a reading, separately, from a psychic medium at the fair. I met with the psychic medium first. Right as I sat down, she told me I was an old soul. Tears formed in my eyes because I felt like maybe all these years of being told this it might be true. She told me I was born with a psychic gift and that I needed to stop being scared from it. I cried more, because I am very scared. She gave me a lot of helpful information on how to become more in tune with my abilities and to stop being so frightened. She was so confident in me, that she told me I would probably be taking her place one day. She told me about other things in my life that she could never have known. I appreciated her guidance and I will never forget her.

Since seeing a psychic, I have been implementing her advice by trying to not be so frightened and by sitting alone in a quiet room to think. After trying these things, I swear that I feel two female presences in my home; I think. Also, after seeing the psychic, my television turned off by its self one night, while I was in bed with my mother. My mother and I freaked out, because we both knew the remote was on the night stand. A picture, hanging in our guest room, fell off the wall the next night after the television incident. What am I supposed to make of this?

I feel, what I think, is my grandmother beside me or sometimes touching me? I feel her especially when I am driving; I swear she sits in the passenger seat. I also feel my dad's mom, who has passed as well, every once in a while. While I was talking with my dad over the phone, I had a strong urge to ask him if he had cried heavily about a week and a half ago. He responded with a yes, and in my mind I could see him sitting on the edge of a bed bent over sobbing. I told him this and he confirmed. I finally let it out and said, 'your mom was with you that night consoling you.' I don't know what made me say that, but I did; and I felt like it was real. Another instance of this, is when I felt a female presence in my class one day. I could not stop staring at my teacher; she was just sitting there looking down at the floor. I felt as if she was having thoughts of emotions or stress. I felt so strongly that her mother was with her, but since I am so doubtful of this I didn't want to tell her, in fear that her mother was very much alive and doing well. But, the urge grew stronger, so at the end of class, I went up to her and told her I sensed that her mother was with her while she was sitting at her desk. My teacher gave me a hug and said she believed me. She confirmed that her mother had passed a few years ago. I thought I would feel closure and some assurance after this, but I just felt guilty; I started wondering if maybe I am making all of this up or I am lying? I don't want to ignore this if it is real, but I do not want to lie to myself or others either. I am young and scared already, but I so desperately need to figure this out. Any opinions, advice, or similar experiences would help. I tend to say things how they are, so please feel free to do the same with me; whether it be skeptic or not. I just need some help for this uneasiness. Thank you!

hey hun! I'm 19 years old, I can really relate to you when you say you have felt presences sinse you were a little girl, because I have too. I have read through some of the comments, I think I am more scared than anything but also intrigued because this is the unknown to most people. I am not sure if it's just me being scared, but the vibe I have had from spirits "watching" me isn't good. It makes me feel...uncomfortable? My mother and her mother (grandma) have told me they have seen spirits and had experiences also. When I was little me my mum and sister went to a beach for a holiday, stayed in an old house. As soon as we got there, we all felt a very uncomfortable vibe, we couldn't explain it, for the 3 of us, the place wasn't overly large. My sister ended up moving her bed into me and mums room, as I had decided to sleep with mum. Took me a very long time to sleep. Mum told us when we had left our holiday that she saw a spirit looking at her as she woke up, and then it just went around the bed and disappeared through the door.

I have had other experieces, sorry for not describing very well, of when I was living with my boyfriend. Everynight when we slept. Around about the same time, I would hear the door bang a little, then the tv closest to me, then the dresser beside it, then the floor, dresser, tv, and back to the door. Then down the hallway. For me, I believed it was somebody walking around, but I kept my eyes closed because I was always scared.

Mum sent me away to boarding school a few years ago. The hostel we stayed in was over 100 years old and use to be an orphanage. I was always scared of that place, me and my friends looked through the old books from our matrons writing events down in old diaries. We came across girls complaining about seeing ghosts etc. Anyway, every year we change rooms, I had a room of my own, one night at around 2-3am, I woke up, and saw a little girl standing by my door looking at me. She was white, wearing an olden day dress, I think it was around that era. It totally freaked me out, I shined my cellphone on her and she disappeared, I was so scared I stayed awake with the cellphone light on for hours.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. <3

Ancestor- The easiest way would be to enrol for a Reiki course. You will have a tutor who will give you individual attention. Should that not be possible go to the following site which has excellent exercises:

SpookVanger I have one question for you, what is a good way to unblock my chakra's? I have been reading and trying several things but I'm not really sure if they actually work, would you know more about this?

Greetings,
Ancestor.

Good evening Lauren! Apologies, I omitted to mention that if you get the opportunity to join a circle, your fear will soon disappear. You will find that the spirit visitors who are earthbound are the fearful ones as they are lost in a world unknown to them. Once you have helped them to realise that they have passed over and are in spirit world they will return to thank you. They are mere humans without their earthly bodies. Nothing to be afraid of, but you will know the joy that you can only get when you help someone in trouble and in sorrow.
God bless.

Hi Lauren! Take it slowly girl! Rome was'nt built in a day and psychic development will not be completed in one lifetime. Your guide decides what is good for you as well as the right time for certain things to happen.
Spirits can not be called up at will, as they have their own
Call it life, on the other side. They will contact you if and when they feel the need to. Then you must of course be in the right place at the right time. What I would suggest is that you visit a Spiritualist Church or Psychic Society where messages from the Spirit world are conveyed by a psychic. Go regularly and you will be contacted sooner or later.
At these venues you will meet like minded folk and if you are as fortunate as I were, you may join a
circle and have weekly contact with the other side.
The "Rules Of Circle Work" that I published can be used to contact the spirit world, BUT you MUST have a
Leader/teacher who has lots of experience otherwise you may unknowingly land yourself and others in trouble.
I'm enjoing this and am waiting for your next question!
God bless
PS Use the internet to find your nearest Psychic Soc.

Hey Peppermint!
I have heard of people being able to contact spirits, but I havnt tried it myself yet. I have realized that I cannot pick up on presences when I am feeling strong emotions from myself. I have been busy with family stresses and issues;which disrupts my personal thoughts and feelings. So, I have not been feeling much presences around me. But, I am trying to educate myself more on how to contact the non-living. I hope your doing good! How are your abilities going?

Dear Spookvanger,
I understand now, what your story intales. Thank you for explaining as well. I do believe, that our Guardian Angels protect us from the living and the non-living. I do have one question, and I am sorry for being so inquisitive;but, can I use the literature in your story to contact spirits? I want to further my ablities concerning spirits but, I am still battling my feeling of fear? I was wondering if you had any advice on overcoming that personal aspect? Thank you for commenting back.:) I truly appreciate it! I hope you are doing well. And thank you again!

Hi Lauren! I am pleased that you are careful when dealing with the unknown, but I want to emphasize that if your intentions are pure you can rely on your Guardian Angel/s to protect you. They will never let you down.However, if you dabble in the occult, voodoo, black magic etc you are courting trouble. The entities involved in these practices are using the Power of God
For their own interests and to harm their fellow man.
But I want to repeat, if your intentions are pure and you
wish to advance spiritually, you have nothing to be afraid of. Your Spiritual vibrations will be such that
the entities, which have a lower vibration, can not harm you.

A Rescue Circle comprises of a number of persons with
a common purpose i.e. To help the spirits of people who have passed over and who are earthbound (ghosts) to come
to the realisation that they are in spirit life and must move on. This is done under the leadership of a psychic on our side, and with the assistance of our guides (Guardian Angels) on the spirit side.
My "story" was given to us by a highly developed
Guide and explains the different types of earthbound
Spirits we will encounter. This happened during one of our
Weekly seances.
I hope this is of assistance to you. As Jesus said:
"Knock,and the door shall be opened." You have knocked. Please read all my "stories" as it will give you a greater insight into life here and beyond.
I will answer any further questions with the greatest of pleasure.
God bless.

Dear Sisyphus_Of_Comprehension,
Your words were very encouraging and inspiring. The up-lifting comment meant a lot to me today;as it was a trying and exhausting day. I can only blame the exhaustion on my emotions, as they tend to "fog over" my mind;thus, not allowing me to fully sense any entities that may or may not be in my presence? I hope that makes sense? All of this confusion to say: I truly am grateful for your warm words of comfort. I hope to meet you as well.

Dear Spookvanger,
I began reading "Inauguration of a Rescue Circle," and, since I am new at all this, I did not know what it was used for. I began reading it aloud, and I did not know what kind of entities or spirits (good or evil) I would possibly be opening up to. I do not mean to offend you in any way, I am simply new to all of this. Many, have told me, that I must be careful who I open the door to; as I am easily emotionally drawn to spirits and the living. I was hoping you could further elaborate on this? I appreciate your comment and I hope to further understand your exerpt!:) Thanks again and hope all is well for you!

You have a beautiful, empathic ability, and it's quite genuine. Don't ever lose confidence in the supernatural -- especially not in this year. Our spiritual journey is almost over. I hope to meet you some day. 😊

I would love to keep in contact with you!:) It's too bad we can't message each other on here (to my knowledge, anyway), but I'll go ahead and give you my e-mail address: rockrgrl4 [at] yahoo.com:) You may want to tell me who you are in the e-mail, too.:P I may forget or not recognize you!
As far as helping you out, it's absolutely no problem at all, and I'm glad I somewhat eradicated your fears about being young and encountering such things. I've even been told that we're living in a very aware generation: apparently there are many more of us that are sensitive now more than ever, and it's not unusual to see young people in this at all.:)
Also, it's no problem at all. I really am sorry to hear about your grandmother, though.: (She sounds like she was/is an awesome lady.:)
Happy holidays to you as well, and don't forget to e-mail me! ^^
-Kasie.

Hey Peppermint!:) What a cute username! Thanks for the comment! Your understanding of the 'being-watched feeling', really made me feel good that someone else knows what I am talking about and feeling. When you said it gets better, I felt such a relief! Keep in touch and I hope all is well for you on this world and in your spirit world!:) Thanks again!

I so appreciate you taking the time to relate, and give me a bit of a confidence boost! I hope you are doing well and that your growing with this gift; as I am beginning to... Thanks for your care about my grandmother; your truly kind-hearted! I hope you have a Happy Holidays and wish you well! I would like to keep in touch, if it is okay with you?

Hello Lauren!:)
I'm Kasie, and I'm 18 as well. Don't attribute all of these strange things going on as something that happens because you are young and foolish. Personally, I believe you. There are many other young people on this site looking for answers as well. Don't feel like you're alone in this.:)
I am very new to all of this as well, so don't take my word for it, but the only thing I can really help you with (besides to assure you that you're not just crazy because you're young) is the feeling of your being watched as a child. It's obvious that you were aware of something there, but think back on it: did it ever feel threatening to you, or harmful in any way? Or was it always a peaceful presence just lingering there? If it was the latter, I believe it may have been your guardian!:) We all have guardians, because none of us are truly ever alone. Do some research on what's been going on with you-if you truly want answers, you'll have to do some digging. The end result is worth it, though.:)
I hope everything gets better for you, and I'm truly sorry for the loss of your grandma.: (It seems like she is still there with you, though, watching over you.:)

trust me when I say this, your not the only one.:)
Me, and proboly many others here feel the feeling you feel, I don't know much about the spirit world, many spirits live here on earth, trying to reach, tell, and guide us. Although I'm haveing problems to communicate with them, every attempt I made so far has failed, but there are many others here that know how to, I'm sure if you ask them they would gladly guide you, tell how to talk to the spirit (maybe your grandmother), or either your spirit guide.;)
Humanity has much potential, we can do a lot more then we all think. =D

Goodnight.:)
