I'm 13 and I can sense spirits and read people's emotions and stories. Right now, you must think I'm some crazy kid that heard a thump or something and thinks she's so special. But trust me, that's not the case. Let me start at the beginning. When I was little, (like 7 or 8) I was completely convinced that there was a ghost in my closet. Sure, most childhood ghosts are just a lumpy sweater or something. But my ghost LIT UP. Yes, at night, I would stare at the shimmering outline of teenage girl or little boy and wonder when they would come to eat me or something.
I realized that if I kept the lights on they would stay more hidden. So I keep the closet light on when I sleep. It's stopped helping though. They just go somewhere else in my room. One night when I was 11 years old, I was trying (and failing) to fall asleep (as usual) I turned on my other side and found myself face to face with a shimmery, turquoise, 4-7 year old boy. Kneeling at my bedside. He stayed staring at me for 30 seconds and then melted away. The rest of the night I heard thumping and occasionally the first words of a lullaby. I was so terrified.
I named him Charlie after he kept showing up. I think he might be watching me now.
I didn't tell my parents at first. I kept it to myself. I also didn't tell them about the stuff going on at school.
Just so you know. I am one of the weirdos at my school. I am not skinny or pretty or social or rich enough to be popular, and I always get gut instincts to sit with the kids who sit alone. ANYWAY, this year a new girl came to my school. She's ultra-hyper, and sometimes annoying, but she sees things like me. We became best friends. ANYWAY, I have something that I named EMPATHY since I had no idea I might just be physic. I can look at somebody, once, and know their personality, and some big experience in their life (sometimes something that hasn't happened yet). I also relate people to colors and animals. I can do it to every single person I see on the spot.
I've started seeing more ghosts. Not just the two in my room. On field trips, service trips, and just on the street. I'll also get 1 or 2 second visions of something in their life. One ghost I saw in a tree had the usual shimmer but she seemed so AWARE that she was dead. Most ghosts are just wondering around replaying scenes of their life.
I'm so clueless! I don't know what to do! I want to be able to communicate but I don't know where to start!
