Here goes. When my pa-pa passed, I was about 6 years old, that's when I started seeing "clear people." I could see through them. I didn't know who they were and I didn't see them all the time and most of the time, I ignored what I saw so it would "go away." When I was 8, the phone rang, before looking at it, I told my father it was my uncle Paul, his wife was calling, she's pregnant, its a girl. He said how do you know... My mother answered and said Hey you! WHAT, CONGRATULATIONS! Dianne and Paul are having a baby. My dad just looked at me; 8 months later they had a girl.
When I was 17, I was about to go to sleep when I could smell my pa-pa. He smoked cigars and drank some sort of scotch and that's what I smelled as I started to drift into a heavy sleep. Whenever he was going to show himself to me before I slept, that's what I'd smell. I loved that old man so much. In my dream he told me that my family would need me and things were about to become sad and to be strong. My aunt passed 2 days later.
I've had dreams that have come true since then of people that I barely knew or events, random and far and few in between, but I've seen more ghostly activity than anything. I see shadow people wherever I go. I've moved a few times, I always see them.
Tonight, I was on my computer and I was looking down at my keyboard and I slowly glanced up because I saw 2 shoes in my doorway and a man was standing in my bedroom door, as soon as I was startled and looked up to complete understanding, he faded away. My cat has seen these things as well. I've been lying in bed and have heard my name called. The other day, I was about to take a nap and I heard my name called out loudly. Thinking it was my husband, I jumped up and yelled WHAT, I'm trying to take a nap but he was on the other side of the house in the shower when I found him and he said he hadn't called me. The cat also heard my name called because he jumped up and ran to the door way and just stood there. I've awoken to scratches on my legs, thighs and other areas of my body, usually 3, sometimes just 2 but long scratches. Things get moved around in my home quite frequently. My husband refuses to believe any of it although he has had his own experiences, he just brushes them off. Pays it absolutely no mind at all.
A lot of my activity/visions comes in dreams where I'm told what is going to happen. I've told others what they should and shouldn't do based on a dream and it happens so randomly that I sometimes I don't like to advise anyone for fear of the, "well why didn't you warn me or the I told you so" later on so I usually just watch things unfold. But what I have noticed is that I've had issues with migraines in the past year and my encounters with the dead and visions are becoming more frequent. I also have not seen my pa-pa in 9 years and have had trouble sleeping for about that long as well. I feel as though I'm under spiritual attack and I'm not religious so I don't know how that works. How can I find someone reputable in the DC/VA/MD area to help me please?! I'm so desperate. I could type a book on the things that have gone on but it would be too much to read. Please don't make fun of me. I've thought about going back home to New Orleans to see a friend of my grandma in hopes that she can help, she's a voodoo woman but I don't know if that will help at all and honestly I'm afraid to do so. My grandmother has told me I probably have the gift if I'm willing to receive it. Some of the women in my family who are not deceased used to tell fortunes just by touching the persons hand or an object of theirs. I don't know if that is it or not. I find myself "absorbing" the emotions of others that I don't know, people in my dreams. I have been washing dishes and a face will pop into my head and I become so depressed and saddened or feeling what they felt. I'm afraid to talk openly about it with anyone again, the last time I did, they recommended I see a shrink. I'm not making this up! Please don't make fun of me as I'm taking this very serious and I'm really looking for someone to help me with this issue. Thanks!
