So all my life I have been a little sensitive. Feeling vibes in certain rooms, getting that "Gut" feeling about something. Even having dejavu occurring a lot. Just a lot of different experiences. The one thing I remember clearly as a child is hearing my name, as clear as day, usually followed by asking my mom why she was calling me (since the voice sounded female) only to have her tell me she didn't call my name. But the other day my dad asked me a weird question. He asked me if I still had the dreams like I used to. I asked him what he meant.
Apparently when I was younger, I constantly had dreams about my past relatives most of whom I never even met. I was able to even send along messages from my grandparents to my parents for instance, and give pieces of information about them that no one ever told me about. My father then also told me for a short while he would hear me in my room talking to someone, and when he walked in and asked who I was talking to I would say Grandma! Like it was completely normal. I don't know why I don't remember a lot of this (I remember bits and pieces) but I think it's because my mother in particular doesn't enjoy that type of talk and actually had me refrain from it. My father however seemed to be more supportive, him believing and such. He was interested if I had those dreams to see if I had any messages.
What this all boils down to is I am wondering if it is possible for my family to have some type of spiritual abilities? It goes down as far as my great grandmother on my mothers side. My mom finally told me about her horrifying account of a banshee and other things that have happened to her throughout her life, which is probably why she wasn't happy when her daughter started to experience the same thing.
See, every woman in my family has experienced the "Cry of the banshee" except me. Apparently there is an awful howling that just radiates through the entire house, and even outside that is so loud and terrifying it makes you want to flee. It's supposed to be the banshee howling over someone's soon to be demise from what she told me. My great grandmother, grandmother, and mother have all experienced it at some point in their life. When my mother experienced hers, she was home alone at the time, and she said it was almost like a horrible wolf howling and it was so loud and in any room of the house it seemed to follow you. She told me how she went throughout the house, the basement, even outside to try and find where it was coming from. Finally after an hour or so, right before my grandmother came home, it stopped. My mom waited outside for her, terrified, and explained to my grandma what happened. My grandmother was very calm about the whole situation, and explained to her how our family is "cursed" with the cry of the banshee. A few days later my great grandmother died.
Another thing that happened to her was kind of an omen. A few days before my grandfather died, my grandmother and mother were in the kitchen, and my mom happened to look out the window and saw their entire yard filled with crows. From what she told me there wasn't an inch that wasn't covered by crows, and this was in late December mind you. A day or so later, right before Christmas my grandfather died of a sudden heart attack.
I haven't yet heard this cry or seen any omens such as this, but needless to say, a lot of things have happened in my life. Not too long ago I was in my boyfriends house (some paranormal stuff has gone down there too, I have a previous story about that) and I walked out into the hallway and seen a bird just sitting on the crown molding of the top floor hallway. I of course went to go investigate, calling my boyfriend to come help get it out of the house, and we both saw it fly into a room we use for storage. It went behind an old dresser we don't use, and I went to try and get it out so we can get it back outside and it seriously vanished. There was no trace whatsoever of this bird. I even turned and asked my boyfriend to see if it possibly flew out of the room or anything and he was as stunned as I was. Then after we proceeded to go through the house, none of the doors or windows in the house were open. It was winter so windows being open would have been ridiculous.
Then we went downstairs and asked if anyone had seen a bird or anything because it was a little odd it was only on the second floor, and no one had seen anything (a wild bird would be kind of hard to miss). The thing is too when I seen it, it was like I was compelled to look where it was. I mean how often do I exit the bedroom, and look up across the hallway at the crown molding? The only ting I can match this to is it was when I was going through a rather difficult time in my life, and I took it as either it was a sign for things to get better, or worse given my families previous history with birds.
I haven't had a dream of someone contacting me since my grandmother passed. It was the most comforting thing I remember at that time. She came to me the day she died and told me not to cry for her, that she was in a better place, and she doesn't want me being upset. When I finally told my mom about this a few years later, she told me that while she was still grieving, and was alone in the house, she heard my grandmothers voice call her name as clear as a bell. My mom took it as a sign of her trying to comfort her.
I've had a lot of little thing such as the feelings and vibes, etc. Of walking into a house or a room, but not much else.
I'm just trying to figure out is it possible for the women on my mothers side of the family to be sensitive to something or possibly has something following us? Her side is solely of Irish and Ukrainian descent. If anyone has any insight as to what is going on, if someone even has a similar experience, please share with me. I've been dying to know for years if it's possible were all a little sensitive or something.
