Tired Of Wondering What My Experiences Mean


I have been experiencing many of these things my entire life, but have recently become curious about/fed up with some of what has been going on. My entire life I have been terribly, terribly afraid of the dark. I have never had a traumatic experience in the dark nor do I have anxiety problems. The second I turn off the light, I feel like someone is standing right behind me/sitting next to me. I have attempted to reason my way out of the fear but it isn't my imagination that is frightening, its the fact that I perceive a presence in the room. This has followed me throughout every room I have inhabited/stayed in, and when staying in very old houses I most often don't sleep if I am alone in the room. My grandmother passed 8 years ago and I still sporadically smell her perfume and other random smells when other people do not smell them.

A couple years ago, I started seeing black shadows in certain places. They look like seeing a person's silhouette out of the corner of your eye but aren't there when you really look at them. I have been evaluated and assured that these are not real visual hallucinations or a symptom of a mental disorder, just my mind playing tricks on me. However, this does not stop the feeling that someone is there. I bought a used car a few years ago and a couple of times have seen (I say seen but it is hard to explain how I really experienced it) a young woman sitting in a specific seat in the back seat of my car. I can describe exactly what she looks like and she feels like a normal person. She doesn't feel scary or even alarming but logically it is strange that I experience her being there. I just wonder what these experiences mean and if it is just my mind playing tricks on me or something more. I have not considered this being meaningful but recently heard a medium describe her experiences before focusing on her talent and it really struck a chord with me as similar to my life.

Curious, any luck finding a medium? How have the experiences been lately? I have yet to find one because I am broke.:) That and I feel like I need to have a connection with them before they look into my life. I hate to feel uncomfortable with one. The one I was trying to look into before seemed a bit distant, which I can understand. I guess I am looking for a bubbly medium or something.

I seem to give the same advice on this site over and over again, so if you care to read some of my responses to other posts, you will find a lot of information in those. Basically you are sensing spirits and energy, and you need to learn how to meditate and protect yourself psychically. ❤

Kay well I'd like to tell you the shadows are called shadowpeople and just because you haven't seen them straight on yet doesn't mean they aren't real. They won't hurt you but just watch you and live around you. Also the reason for your grandmothers scent is probably because she's close and watching over you, if you try to talk to her when you smell it she might respond.

The woman you're seeing could be a spirit guide like others have said or it could be someone passed away in that car or the girl Owned the car before you and after she died the family sold it. Or it could be just a spirit that likes to hang out around you. Try talking to her maybe.

Also the feeling of a presence around you is because there are spirits around you that you just don't see. Hope this helped. Kbye.

Finally,I found another post quite similar to what I am experiencing at the moment. Cheers to me.😆
You know, I don't think you have to wonder any further on what your experiences mean.There's only one answer for that,obviously.You are PSYCHIC. And one of the abilities you are showing early off is being CLAIRVOYANT.
You may call your experiences as something along the lines of Spiritual Awakening/Awareness/Maturity.This is a process wherein we realize bit by bit that we aren't physical bodies with souls, but SOULS with physical bodies. And of course, it tends to naturally awaken psychic/spiritual gifts that had been dormant ever since.
Don't fret,though,nor doubt everything you experience. Everything happens for a purpose. There is no such thing called "coincidence".It might seem strange and even scary at times, but you are on your way to developing the best of your spiritual side.
Trust me, we all are. Me included.😊
As for the spirits you were seeing,well,I could elaborate for you just some of the options as to what they may be.
(1) It could be your Spirit Guides. They could easily be distinguished because apart from other spirits you encounter because your gut feelings just 'know' that you're safe and won't be harmed in any way with them. Come contact time with them, you feel comfortable, loved and positive.
(2) Just another spirit who hopes he/she could be seen or noticed. Or may just be wandering off. But personally, for me I don't think that what you saw ARE THESE KINDS of spirit.

No matter what happens, your intuition plays an important role here. Go with your gut feelings and trust it to lead you to the right way. It always does.
And if ever you find it tiring or stressful to figure out at times, just take a deep breath and remember that the beginning is always the hardest. And the harder the path is to take, the much worthy it is to embark on.
Light and Love.❤

I am currently looking into finding one. I feel particularly compelled as I have been sensing things in particular areas of my boyfriends house and seeing figures in apparel of different decades (the house is around 100 years old and multiple people have died in it). Would like to know how your experience with a medium goes, I am nervous about contacting one!

I can relate. I tend to feel like I am not alone and being watched. I will see blue, red, and gold specks around. It will be there and then it will disappear. I try to research and see if it is dealing with eye problems or something. I also feel like I am being touched or weight on me when I am lying down. One time, I was sleeping and as I was awakening, it felt as if an animal was walking on me.

Is there a medium in your area that you feel comfortable discussing this with? I am hoping to find one to help me. I hope you find someone to help you.
