Hearing Voices And Seeing Spirits


Throughout the course of my life I've had some very unique experiences. Beginning around age five, I started hearing voices that would tell me things that would happen or things that I should do. Everything I was told seemed to be for my own good, so I never felt concerned. As a five year old child I didn't know enough to fear these things, and I didn't see the harm in a little extra help.

When I was five, I was told not to be afraid, but my dog was not going to be alive much longer. The voice did not feel threatening, but more of a suggestion that I should be emotionally prepared. Two days later our new puppy got sick and died. When I was six, I heard a voice that told me to hide in my toy chest, which my mother had strictly forbidden me from doing. I chose to get in the toy chest. Seconds later, the large chandelier crashed to the floor right where I had been playing. I was unharmed inside the toy chest.

This voice has told me many things throughout my life. The voice has always been right, and I have never worried about it. This voice has told me a variety of things ranging from impending car crashes to the death of loved ones. However, things have recently become more intense, and I'm not entirely sure how to handle my new situation.

Let me begin by saying I am recently married, and my new husband is a sleepwalker. I woke up around 2 AM one night and rolled over to see a tall dark figure standing over my husband's side of the bed. I figured that he was sleep walking again, and just watched him for a while to make sure he didn't hurt himself. He usually gets back in bed on his own. He paced back and forth by the bed for some time before I noticed that I heard slow breathing close by. I looked down at the bed and found him asleep next to me. I looked back at the pacing figure, which had stopped pacing and turned to look at me. I realized the figure had no face and was dark and shadow like. When I screamed my husband jumped up and turned on all of the lights. I pointed and told him I saw someone. He thought there must be an intruder in the house and started looking for them. I could still see the dark figure with the lights on, and it followed my husband as he continued his search for whomever I had seen. We were both in complete shock by the time I had finally communicated that there was a human shaped shadow following him around the house, and he couldn't see it.

The same figure visited every night from that point forward. I even saw it during the day sometimes. It would follow my husband, stroking his hair. Once it realized I new it was there, it started doing the same thing to me. Moving from one side of the bed to the other throughout the night. I began talking to it throughout the day and night, thinking I could convince it to leave. Several weeks passed before I finally called my spiritual healer and asked for her recommendation. She gave me a prayer to say and recommended holy water or incenses. That evening I sat in our bed and followed her instructions. Upon completing them, I feinted and did not wake up for over 12 hours. The spirit was gone, but now I can't make it stop.

I now see different shadows or spirits all the time. They all seem to follow my husband around, and he is completely oblivious to them. I have taken to ignoring them because they seem to stick around longer if I acknowledge them, and it seems to take too much energy for me to make them leave. I don't tell my husband about it anymore because it seems to scare him.

At this point, I'm not sure what I can do, and I'm not sure what has happened. Is it possible that spirits are attracted to my husband? Maybe I have always been capable of seeing spirits, but never encountered any until I was with him. It seems odd to me that he is unaware of the beings that follow him around everywhere. I am also a little disturbed by the fact that I now have spirits, but no voices...

I know this is from 2 months ago, but in my experiance, shadow people are really bad. They tend to attach to one person and try to bring about their weaknesses. They may be trying to effect your husband in a certain way... Maybe about his own weaknessess somehow. That's just been my experiance. Have you thought of exercising your house? You may need to to get rid of that many spirits. I hope everything is going well for you. Best of luck.

Well, thanks for your thoughts. Many things still remain a mystery for me. I think I will focus my energy on prayer and meditation in hopes to find help and spiritual strength. Based on my last experience I don't think I'm strong enough to communicate or make this many spirits leave. At this point I just have to trust that everything will be ok.

I did ask my husband if there was anyone who may have stuck with him after death. He said his best friend died in a car crash when they were in middle school, but he doesn't believe he would have stayed around for this long. Also, there are so many spirits and none of them remind me of adolescent boys.

If you feel comfortable with it then maybe you should try communicating more and asking them if they can explain anything that's going on. Though you can't get them to leave easier then... I think whoever they are they are very confused. I guess apart from learning more about it just go with your instincts. You have a gift for a reason. You could also ask your spirit guides for help. The thing I don't understand is why they go to your husband and not you... Are you certain they couldn't be somehow related to your husband?-Or maybe knew him before they died? Sorry I can't help much. I wish you the best.

I do think they could be related to the voices from before in some way, just because the voices stopped when I started seeing them. I wonder if they could be the same and I am incapable of hearing and seeing simultaneously. On the other hand, I am not certain these spirits would know the sorts of things that the voices used to say.

They certainly do want attention. The way they touch my husband looks almost like a child trying to get their parent's attention, and if I acknowledge them it becomes difficult to make them leave at all. I don't feel like they are dangerous. They seem unable to harm me. They don't seem like they want to hurt anyone anyway. I'm more concerned with understanding the situation. This change makes me nervous, and I especially worry about why they would be drawn to my husband. I am fairly accustom to strange things, but he does not have the history that I have.

Hey there. Do you feel like there could possibly be any relation with the spirits to the voices you once had? You can always ask your spirit guides for help-or ArchAngel Michael to keep anything harmful away from you and your family. Do you always feel negative about the spirits? It is possible that they could enjoy hanging around your husband for some reason, or it could even just be to get your attention. I guess it all depends on how you feel about them, and what there purpose is to be around you. Some might have bigger purposes of their own, like wanting to ask you to deliver a loved one a message from them. I hope you figure out what you need to. Stay safe.
