I am 42 years old and have always had "feelings" of things going to happen and being watched especially in the house I grew up in. My grandmother, aunt, and father have all encountered ghosts in their lives. I guess the paranormal is in my gene pool.
I had my first encounter with a ghost 9 years ago on the island of Jamaica. I was there on vacation with my husband. While I was coming out of the closet area, I looked up and coming towards me was the apparition of a man. All I saw was from his shoulders down to his shins, walking and then he vanished. That night my husband and I slept with the lights on after I stated that I had a "feeling" that he was watching us sleep. I've never seen another apparition again and was wondering, why was this a onetime experience? I sense my deceased loved ones being with me all the time. Why can't I see them? Why do I only sense them?
I recently visited a psychic. She told me that I have psychic abilities and that my gifts will come through in my dreams. I have had dreams that have come true. Sometimes I can't remember my dreams, which I find very frustrating! The psychic advised me to develop my abilities by reading Robert Moss books regarding "Active Dreaming" she also recommended that I read books on "Creative Visualization." Can anyone suggest anything else I can do to develop my abilities? She also told me that my spirit guide is my aunt who I loved dearly.
Another incident that I'd like to share and receive information about is an occurrence that happens to me when I'm asleep. (It hasn't happened in a while, but when it did, I wished it away because it was terrifying to me.) While sleeping, I would sense someone or something hovering over my face breathing on me. Around my eyes would get extra dark. I would want to wake up, but felt paralyzed. I'd feel like I was fighting something to wake up. When I would wake up, I'd be sweated up and afraid to go back to sleep. My husband would tell me that I would be twitching and making noises. He'd have to hold me so I could fall back to sleep. I'd remind him to stay close and that if he felt me twitch or make a sound to wake me up. Can anyone tell me what was happening to me?
One last question I have has to do with spirits. I had a house built and don't sense spirits around me like I used to in the house I grew up in. Although I found it scary at the time to go into the attic or be alone in the basement of the house I grew up in, I do miss the feeling of being with something from another dimension. Are there spirits in newly built houses? I talk to my deceased relatives all the time. I don't really get the sense of being "watched" like I used to. What has happened?
