As long as I can remember, I have always had my abilities. I think of someone and they call, I know what people are going to say before they speak. I started around my teenager years seeing things disappear and later reappear, I hear voices when I am alone. Things started more once I had my daughter 14 years ago. When she was 4 years old is when she would talk about a little girl that wants to play with my husband, and he didn't believe, well then he didn't but after all the years of my daughter and I feeling them around and in the last few years we can see a dark shadow figure that looks like a person walking into rooms.
Just last night I was downstairs talking to my husband and his brother, when all of a sudden I could feel someone behind me, and at the same time I saw my step-dad's face in my mind (he passed away 2 years ago). I got tears in my eyes and I felt calm. When I came upstairs, my daughter told me how she just saw in the corner of her eye someone walk into our kitchen. We both valadated each other last night.
We have lived in this house for nine years. I have moved 6 times, and all the places I have lived we have experinced things. I know we have spirits that follow us around. Can't see that I move into haunted homes, or they must be following us around. I have many pictures of my daughter with orbs, ever since she was born.
If any ask, yes when I was younger I used to play with the Ouija board. I don't feel like that brought on my abilities or any of my experiences. I have family members that have seen and felt things. I just believe I am born to know that we don't die after death, and feel lucky to be able to.
