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...
