Real Psychic Experiences

Shadow People, Astral Projection And Dark Fog?


This is my story...

(sorry in advance if there are any grammar or spelling mistakes.)

I don't even know where to begin. Well I will just start off by saying I have had my fair share of paranormal experiences in my life so far, but I just want someone else's advice on this.

As long as I can remember I have been seeing Shadow people, hearing ghosts, seeing dark fog around me, seeing black orbs. To the very point that I would be hiding in my room crying because I was so scared. I would sleep with the light on, I would make sure my dog was always with me.

I would have dreams of opening drawers and knocking over lamps, then I would wake up and the drawers and lamps I dreamt about would be opened and knocked over.

And I m just going to put it out there that I have done astral projection. Only twice that i'm aware of though.

Anyway, the shadow people and ghosts were almost literally ruining my life.

Until one day I became so frightened I gave up and started praying.

I even joined I church group with my friends.

I can't even believe this myself but I stopped seeing shadow people, I stopped hearing voices and seeing ghosts, I even stopped seeing the dark fog and orbs soon after.

I still open drawers in my sleep and wreck stuff (no I don't sleep walk) but I stopped hearing and seeing things.

But if I am physic or a medium or whatever. Can you guys please help me and tell me how to practice and get better. And definitely how to control all of this.

So please if anyone has had a similar experience or has any advice, please comment.

Thank you for reading!

cut to the chase me luv a good start would be join a spiritualist church and begin meditation learn how to open and close yourself to the spirit realm. I like to keep things simple and real I am a no nonsense guy who has had many spiritual experiences myself such as hearing seeing feeling and out of body experiences. So if you join the right group you will learn to protect yourself ignore people who seem to throw things down your throat use your own mind for the thinking not someone else's good luck with this and dark shadows and orbs is not a good colour to see if they return then tell a medium asap.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I recommend learning to control your dreams and/or your projections. Keeping a dream journal is usually recommended.

Here's an exercise that's kind of like praying, but can also help develop psychic abilities:

If you care to, look at my own psychic experience to see how that exercise helped me.

One of my favorite things from the book Dune is this:
"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain"

Anyways, almost any mystical/magickal tradition you encounter, fear is the big no-no. One of the first thing the student does is get over their fear, especially any pathological fears they have. It's fine to be cautious about things that might bring you harm, but one shouldn't run away screaming. So go pet that python or feed that hedgehog or eat those creepy-crawly shrimp.

Here's a great essay on fear:

Love is the law, love under will.

You're in a bit of a catch22 here. All your life you've had this natural ability (unfortunately though, with no mentor to help you through this) and did whatever you could to get rid of it. But now, as it's gone away, you want it back but with control and no fear.

It doesn't work that way. Humans have and always fear what they don't know. If you ask for this back, you can't pick and chose exactly what comes back and to what degree.

What exactly do you think those "ghosts" are that, as you put it, "almost ruined my life." They did? Did they almost ruin your life or was it your thoughts about them that almost ruined your life? You too are a ghost! When you astral projected, you had no physical shell. You were no different than they. When you die, you'll be a ghost. And that astral form you inhabited while you were in that plane is still there in "ghost like fashion" even now as you breathe. We are all ghosts that also inhabit a physical shell. We are so indoctrinated to fear ghosts with rattling chains, moans and haunting. Sure, ghosts are usually only visible to us because they are in the lower plane, but they were once in a shell too. Ghosts can also be of high natures, or some religions wouldn't conclude prayer with "Father, the son and the holy ghost".

You can only control what you become good at. No singer can control their voice until they master it. No artist can control their brush until hundreds of paintings later. You've reset yourself to rookie status because you quit and retreated. You can't control what you don't face, educate yourself on, develop and so on. You have to truly decide what it is you're looking for, what you plan on doing with that ability, and how you'll handle fear along the way.

I too walked your path and know all about the fear. It was only after having been sabotaged for the umpteenth time that I got sick of it and confronted what I feared. I then worked through it and got through each level.

No matter what we tell you to do next, the next step will still come for you and all those old fears will surface (you may want to start with the article in the Articles section about how to increase your psychic ability). You just have to decide what to do with them. But from the looks of it, you survived all that happened to you in the past and are here to talk about it. I'll think you'll survive phase two.

Best to you!
