If you haven't read it yet, my previous story tells of my currents paranormal experiences. I have read on here that many people's experiences or abilities run in their families, or have some sort of family tie. My running question is this: could my ancestors be influencing my current situation or is it just a coincidence?
I recently remembered a story my mother told me about how my great-grandmother's great-great-great-grandmother was telekinetic. Her favourite prank was inviting people over, having them sit in her living room with her, and using her mind to rock the rocking chair in the corner. She thought it was hilarious, and so did her long-time friends. New peers, however, were highly fearful of her until they got to know her better (if they gave her that chance). The way my grandmother describes her, this woman and I would have gotten along swimmingly. I wish I could have met her.
In addition, my grandfather was what people called a "water witch". He found several wells for people in the area by using two metal coat-hangers, and sometimes just using sticks. However, it made him very uncomfortable, and he rarely talked about it. He died 20-some-odd years ago from skin cancer.
Last, but not least, I had a distant grandmother who was full-blooded Cherokee. Her name was Morning Glory, and there are times I think she talks to me. I don't hear it with my ears, but rather like a second conscious. It was so odd when I first learned of her. I looked at our tattered and stained family tree and amidst the barely legible scribbles and water-splotches was her name. It wasn't written any different than the others' names, but it stood out to me as though it were bolded. Ever since then, whenever I am in trouble or I have a nightmare, a slight calming sensation runs through me and I think of her name, no matter what is happening. Due to the fact that I'm not certain if it is Morning Glory or not, I never talk directly to her, I never credit her with the feeling of peace, and I do not fully trust the second conscious. Nevertheless, I do say thanks to the feeling of peace in general, and I do not fear this second conscious. When this conscious acts, I get the same feeling I get when I'm in the middle of hugging my mother or my grandmother; just peace, love, and warmth. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in my attempts to find out more about her, and I have no idea what to think of the second conscious I have--for some crazy reason--associated with her.
All of these relatives are on my mother's side. My grandmother, my mother and her sisters are all slightly sensitive (they sometimes have dreams that come true, they have had rare ghost experiences, etc.), but they never have experienced what I have, and they largely discredit my stories. This is why I wonder if it is just a coincidence, rather than jumping to the conclusion that it is definitely because of my ancestors that I experience what I experience.
I am open to any and all thoughts. If I can trace the source, maybe I can deal/adjust with what is happening to me more effectively.
