Family Ties


Having a rich Celtic background of Welsh, Cornish, and Breton, ghosts and the paranormal show up in every family story and folklore. My family tells me that I have second sight and I believe it, seeing and sensing my relatives has been a common thing for me, ever since I was a wee lad. My Dad told me when was like around six years old I was said to shout out and point some where in the room (specifically in the middle of where the conflict was) and say "grand pappy, its grand pappy" every now and again, especially during a loud fight or conflict. The whole house would quiet down if there was a fight. Now my grand father was the best man, most well tempered, most generous man a lad could know from I'm told and what a grew up with. Always there to settle an argument or resolve a fight. I am almost certain the reason he appeared to me was to stop the fighting.

Now I fast forward to when left Wales to come to America. Every night and day I can sense that some one always behind me, I know its not an evil presence, but a good one. I have also seen in my dreams and when I am half asleep a tall white haired man in his twenties with thick Welsh accent telling me to "Be a good lad", or "Take care of them". Now I always assumed it was me pappy, but I learned that on my grandmothers side, the Welsh side, my grandmother's dad was born with all white hair and was very tall. Also a blond headed Cornishman would appear in my dreams frequently.

I always seemed to be the one to not quite relay messages between both worlds, but you know what I am trying to say. Also I would sing two specific songs in the Cornish and Breton languages and I would soon sense a strong presence, and the longer and more I sang the song the more presences I felt, but never bad, always good, like they got my back or something. God has blessed me with this gift. I don't know quite why yet, but I know its for a good reason.

Paranormality within families is of particular interest to me. This story is very close to my own and I am pleased to read it. I will keep an eye out for future posts.

Welshman: What a great post!...I've always felt a sense of mystique while listening to Celtic and Gaelic songs... I don't know if it's the music or lyrics, but I find it very soothing to the soul and great to listen to while meditating!...So, are you familiar with the English translation of your songs?...I would love to hear them...

I agree with Miracles, and there may come a time when your gift comes in handy...

Thank you for posting, it was a pleasure to read 😊 ❤

Welshman - I believe there are people who are born with gifts and from the sounds of things, you are one of them.

Maybe it's just not the time for you to know what it is you're supposed to do with your gifts other than what you are doing. Then again, maybe you are doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing 😊

Whatever the reason, I am glad they brought you here. Welcome.
