Disappearing Mediumship


Currently, I am 17 years old and have experienced paranormal 'things' on several occasions. I'll list a couple of the things I've gone through.

Once, I was at my grandmother's house (which I'm convinced is haunted for multiple reasons other than this one), and I was about 10 or 11 years old when this incident happened. My mom worked the morning shift at this time which started way before my time to catch the bus. So, I'm laying on a couch trying to rest, and all of a sudden my eyes open and I see a man sitting in a chair across from me. I know he was a spirit because nobody was downstairs with me and the typical "within a blink it was gone" concept applies. I open my eyes for two seconds, and I see a man who was probably 5'7", sitting in a chair, reading an open newspaper which blocked most of his face (although I could tell he was bald), and he was wearing brown pinstripe pants, suspenders, and a white tank top. I've described this figure to all of my family members, and none of them can connect him with anyone they knew.

There was another time when I was living in a townhouse complex called Poet's Village, and my friend and I were out playing around our side of the 'village.' In between the two circles of 'houses' are the manager's office and a bridge because a little creek passes between the circles.

We reached the manager's office (it's pretty dark outside at this time) and I see a fully visible, almost illuminated, figure walking away from the left side of the bridge. I stopped dead in my tracks because it was odd to be able to see this figure considering how dark it was and also the fact that it looked very much so like a grim reaper. My friend saw the shock and fear in my eyes and asked what was wrong, and I said something along the lines of: "Do you see that guy down there?" Well, of course, I was the only one who could see him, and we ran back to my apartment where I repeat exactly what I saw to her and my parents.

There have also been a few times where I have clearly heard voices (and when I say voices I mean there were two different spirits who said something to me at different times) but could not see them. I've always considered myself to be a sensitive because I can feel the presence of earthbound spirit (s) and can sense things like what their gender is, approximately how tall they are, or what it is they're doing at that moment.

The reason I wanted to share my experiences with you guys is because over the past few years I have noticed that everything paranormal has stopped. I don't know if it's because I moved into a house where there doesn't seem to be much activity or what it is, but I kind of miss having the ability to sense/feel/know what or who is around me.

My mom and I went to a group reading last night, and at the end of the reading, I asked the psychic medium what could be going on. She told me that it could be that I simply haven't had the time to be open to spiritual experiences and that I should dedicate a few days a week to meditation and to allow myself to have time.

If there are any mediums or psychic mediums who could possibly give advice about what may be happening or what I could do to 'get my ability back,' it would be greatly appreciated!:)

Thank you notjustme. I did a little bit of research on chakras and opening my third eye, but I will have to do some research on protecting myself. Thank you for the advice and well wishes. Best of luck to you as well and thanks once again.

I also agree with the medium that you should try meditation. Meditation open your chakras which allow you to open your third eye and other senses. But like everything in life there has to be a balance. With good things come bad as well. Opening your 3rd eye and enhancing your other senses will make you vulnerable to all sorts of entities. So be sure to learn how to protect yourself also as you meditate. Best of luck to you. Stay safe. God bless.

Warm thank you's to yomomma and RedWolf. Being affirmed of what I should do has helped a ton! I've been working on introducing meditation into my daily routine, just baby steps, but I can tell that I'm getting better at trusting my intuition and know that I'm already more open than before (of course I still need to work on it but there's progress:D)
Red, haha I appreciate you sharing about the falling asleep issue. I've read about it, but you're the first who has commented on my story that it has actually happened.

Once again, thank you to everyone who has commented and advised me! I am forever grateful and wish you all the best ^_^

Hi EvelynHeart! I think I understand where you're coming from. My 'visits' (like Miracles51031) slowed down when I became a grandmother. I think because I focused all my attention on my twin grand daughters, I was less aware of happenings around me. Now after finding this site and writing my stories down, I feel as if I've sort of awaken again. Meditation works wonders. When you open yourself up you become more aware. Good luck!

I agree with Miracles. You have to meditate. I know you have a lot going on, if I'm correct finals are over or almost over for you and have to start applying to Colleges, and you are either working or looking for a job, and you want to hang out with friends. You have to put aside time every night to meditate. Since meditation is a relaxation exercise you may fall asleep but that's okay because a few people on here say that they too have fallen asleep while trying to meditate, I am one of them. Always remember to shield yourself before meditating.

Your grandson is very lucky to have you as a grandmother. But you too have to make time before you go to sleep to meditate to get your balance just right for your health.

Hi I read your article. It is interesting. Because I feel a bit the same way.
I can tell my personal experience. In a way your psysic experience become less if you can not share your experience with others.
At least in my case.
Because I learned some things are to emotional for people still to be involved with.
If you really want it back I personaly sugest you work on it. And what you must work on hard is create with love a right vibration again. Like right colors etc... And try to feel what it is that is missing. We say meditate. But I mean really hard concentrate at this one point and question. Because you know you have to burn into this question like fire or light of the sun through a magnifiying glass. Focus on one point it means in this case on the question what it can be. If you wait long enough you get the answer. So do not manipulate your mind. Just think about the question and wait for the answer no matter in what way or like in a vision or what ever. Go search that way. But keep working on it if you really want it bad. You need to fight harder since we get at that point in life where we need to be stronger en focus more. But I think we need to show we want it also. Good luck.

Aw thank you! I've received similar responses on the psychic-experience website, but I think you're the first who actually has related to feeling like something's missing. Thank you for the advice and insight, and good luck and best wishes to you (:

EvelynHeart - there could be many reasons why you aren't experiencing anything right now. And one of those could be exactly like the psychic medium said. If you are busy, or even if just your mind is running rampant, it can throw things off. Happens to me all the time. Right now my entire focus is on my 2 year old grandson and has been since his birth. My "visits" have slowed way down. I eased up on meditating (which I shouldn't have done). I encourage you to meditate even if it doesn't speed things along. Meditation is wonderful and I find it very helpful to calming my brain LOL

Don't try too hard to get things back the way they were. Maybe they've slowed down for a reason. I think I understand how you feel, though. When there's nothing going on in that part of my life, I feel as if part of me is missing: that I am not whole. It makes me sad and I worry that I'll never get back to where I was. But we both will, when it's time. Don't give up 😊
