Since I was a little girl I have been seeing and hearing things that most people can not. I am 24 years old now and this hasn't gone away. I awake in the middle of the night only to find things or what used to be people, I guess, staring at me. I see shadows, I never heard any of them talk to me, but I can sometimes on occasion hear weird noises. I can tell people things that no one else would know but them. Am I different? I am starting to wonder if I'm losing it. I would like this gift, as most people would call it, to just go away.
I just bought a house 4 months ago and I'm starting to have dreams or, I guess, nightmares about the basement. I'm seeing dark shadows walk around the house and hearing things drop at night. The house is 47 years old. I can't walk into a hospital without feeling overwhelmed. I feel like things are surrounding me and it's very cold when it happens. I'm starting to feel helpless. What should I do?
My mom says that this is just a gift that God has given me, but I'm not quite sure I want it. I'm never afraid of these things but fear some day I may be. I won't tell anyone about this except my mom. I guess you could say I'm ashamed. I don't want to look like a nut case. I've read all the books and watched all the movies but still can't figure out why. Can I get rid of this or am I stuck with it? Will my children have the same problem? My youngest daughter is two and I've seen her do things that I use to do, like stare very focused on something before she will walk into a room. I have also heard her talking to someone who is not there. And the shadows that I see seem to want to stay in her room more than the rest of the house.
Why can't I see what she sees?
