Becoming More Sensitive


Back about 7 years ago I started noticing things happening. For example: My daughters would tell me that while I was at work they had been visited by something they could not see. The drawers in the kitchen would open. One evening while I was at home (Springfield Oregon) I layed down on my bed and felt the presense of someone beside me. There was nothing there that I could see. Another time was a weekend and I was laying on my bed dozing, when suddenly something hit the bottom of my bed. My dog (cody) who usually lays on the floor at the bottom of my bed was out in the living room. I sat up and looked to see if my dog had just came in and layed down but the door had not opened and again nothing was there. It was at that time I started taking my daughter's more seriously.

Five years ago my daughters moved away and I moved to Junction City Oregon not very far from Springfield. I wanted to believe that what ever was in that house was left behind. About four years ago I started noticing noises. It was just my dog and I and no one else. It felt as though someone else was living in the place with me. My boyfriend started living with me about three years ago and the noises slowed down until about four months ago. I have noticed the noises getting more frequent and much more noticable. My sister who is a year older than I am and my brother who is younger than I, passed away in 2011. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but it seems that when I am in the house alone I hear sounds of tusseling papers or in the other room where I have my dvd's it sounds like someone is looking through them. When I go to look there is no one there.

My dog seems to be extremely sensitive and scared often. Usuauly he will sleep in the frontroom but anymore now he sleeps on the floor right next to me. Once he came running into the room and jumped on top of me shaking and was scared to get down on the floor.

In the last two months I have been woke up out of my sleep by a loud knocking on the wall. I got out of bed and looked around. No one was there. Just last week I was woke up around 3 am by a loud yell in my ear in a man's voice. I thought it was my boyfriend. I touched him and asked him if he was ok. He said he was fine and it was not him that yelled. He said he had been awake most of the night and there was no sound or noise.

Yesterday I was out in my laundry room talking to my daughter on the phone when I was focusing on the floor where I had a pile of towels and wash cloths ready for the wash. Next to the pile was a loofa (not sure how to spell that). To my amazment I watched it slide about five inches across the floor. I looked for a breeze, mice or any bugs but there was nothing. It sent a cold chill down my back. I walked in to get my boyfriend and tell him what had just happened.

Later that evening he went to check on our neighbor and while he was gone I was sitting on the couch working on making jewelry. I felt something hit the couch next to me. Kind of like someone threw someting against the pillows on the back. Again nothing. It's weird that it won't do anything while my boyfriend is with me.

I wonder if I am becoming more sensitive to the unseen the older I get? I'm interested in anyone who have had similar things happen or if they have any answers as to what is happening.

There might be a little more to my story. When I was a child my mom was involved in whitch craft. Bad things happened to my family but never to me. Most of my syblings have had difficult lives with drugs and alcohol. I have never had that problem. I wonder if my mother had released something in our family? I consider myself a spiritual (not religous) person and hold God my higher power close to my heart. I have had people speak over my life (propheticly) in the past but never knew if it was for real.
I believe that we share this earth with the unseen but I don't know to what extent. As what rath9375 said is that it's not bad encounters and yes I believe it is trying to let me know it's there. I wonder if it is trying to communicate with me? If it is a bad spirit I don't want to invite it because I don't want that. But if it's a good one then I don't mind. I just don't want to take the chance.

I think Nysa is onto something. I know God doesn't give us more than we can handle and maybe he knew you needed to wait for your gift. Nothing in your encounter seems bad so far. They seem to just be saying "hey, I'm here, and I know you know it."

The age issue interests me. We hear that children can see when adults can't & some people report they haven't seen anything since they were kids. On the other hand I have noticed some people report they never had any experiences as a small child but began seeing paranormal things around the age of puberty. Then there are a few accounts from people who start seeing things around the time their children grow up & move out or even when they become grandparents. I wonder if age plays the role we think it does? Or if perhaps there is another factor that we don't recognize that enters different people's lives at different stages? Thanks for posting, you gave me a lot to think about.
