I'm just going to verify that my house is very, very old. Built in 1912. There has been death (s?) here; one old lady passed of old age -in my current bedroom!. So if it helps, I'll put that out there for later*
I think I have an interesting new gift.
Now, I know I'm a slight medium and possibly clairvoyant, as well as extremely empathetic. But is there a term for smelling? Sounds funny, I know. Before I start, I want to say that this isn't anything medical, I'm 110% sure. Lately I've been catching different scents that are unexplainable. Two in particular, actually.
Anyway, it started when I came home from a friend's house. I was walking into my house and all of the sudden, a pungent, icky scent was the only thing I could smell. It followed me around, like something rotting. It reminded me of rotting foliage, or something similar (sorry for the gruesome description there). I walked down the hallway and stood by my bedroom door, stopping to smell and wonder if the garbage in the kitchen- which was the next room over- needed to be emptied, or if I needed to turn on the dishwasher. After checking it out, there really was nothing causing the gross smell, though. I even sniffed my clothes *Lol*, because I'd just been swimming at that friend's, but it wasn't me (I smelled like chlorine!). Soon, the scent faded. I'd even asked my mother if she smelled it, and she told me no. So did my sister. Needless to say, I was confused but I let it go until tonight, after I kept catching the smell of something else entirely: Vanilla cake. This one, I have no logical, easy explanation for.
Yes, I've been catching a whiff of baking vanilla cake. It smells delicious; it's as if someone had put a vanilla cake into the oven and baked it for a while, until the whole kitchen smelled of it. It reminds me of a birthday cake baking in the oven. It was kind of comforting until I realized that no one has baked anything since Easter, and we don't have anything in the house that could cause the smell. I catch it in the kitchen occasionally, but sometimes it drifts into the mudroom (which is connected to the kitchen area). Again, just like the less pleasant scent, it seems to kind of follow me. I can smell the cake until I walk away from the kitchen, or go outside. By the time I get back, it's gone.
The thing that freaks me out the most about the vanilla cake scent is that a few years ago, on someone's birthday, my mom, my sister, and I ALL smelled the same exact scent, where I've been catching it now. (I can't remember whose birthday it was, but I remember my mom being extremely surprised by the unexplainable birthday cake scent, only because it was someone's birthday. The person is deceased, but that's all I can remember.) My mom and sis haven't smelled it since, but I think that scent of baking vanilla cake has returned *cue spooky music*
Well, I've just laid out another adventure I've experienced. Lol. Does anyone know if what I'm experiencing an actual ability? I think so, but I'm not sure. And if so, does it sound like I could possess some sort of the ability? All comments are welcome, even if you just want to call me a lunatic. (I say this all the time, sorry, I feel crazy.)
- sorry for the poor grammar and possible spelling mistakes. It's one am and I had to get this out >.<
