I am writing this story to ask you guys what you think. I am 19 years old and since I can remember, I have felt there's definitely something there. I say this because I have not felt like it was a threat or something I should be bothered about (sorry guys if my english is bad I have been studying turkish fully for 3 years).
When my gran died, these feelings became stronger. I could feel her there with me, beside me I would feel a hand on my shoulder or a sudden rush of cold sweep over me, but it felt good, I would feel protected, I knew she was there. Then one day came a real shock, I was sent to bed early, I can't remember why mum was at work and dad was looking after us. I hated my dad, he abused us for many years, I was crying my eyes out when I noticed in the corner of the room opposite my bed a lady sitting, rocking. She didn't seem like a threat, she was just rocking, watching me. I shut my eyes hoping not see it and when I opened my eyes it was gone.
A couple of years later my mum finally decided to leave my dad and as we were packing up our stuff, I came across old family photos, one of them stunned me, the photo was of a lady on a rocking chair outside an old irish cottage. The lady was the one I saw that night years ago. I asked my mum who she was. The photo must be 80-90 years old, my mum wasn't sure, she was definitely my mum's great gran but from which side of her family she doesn't know. I told her I saw her one night briefly when I was young, she believed me because the reason she has the photo is because she too was haunted by this lady on many occasions and a family member gave her the photo to verify who she was. Another occasion, before I was due to dance at the world championships in belfast 2001, my mum and sister were in the main bedroom, I was downstairs with my brother, all of a sudden my stereo started blasting. I ran upstairs and switched it off, we were shocked, how could my stereo switch itself on, turn up its volume and play the 21st track REACH FOR THE STARS by S club 7. My mum convinced me it was someone from the other side letting me know before the competition to reach for the stars, to try my hardest and don't doubt myself.
I had other experiences during that period as well, but I won't bore you guys. After my mum left my dad, I had the biggest teenage tantrum for years, so I completely forgot about everything but now that I have my life back on track, I have started noticing things again, but it seems I am more in tune with these happenings then normal. On about 5 different occasions, in the last 6 months, I have been able to tell when something bad will happen, something totally unexpected, like the death of my husband's uncle. I told my husband the night before I felt something bad was going to happen, I couldn't say what but something was giving me this feeling that something bad was going to occur, it did 6 hours later, my husbands uncle passed away.
On another occasion, out of the blue one day, I got all emotional, I felt I was going to lose my mum, I was hysterical for no reason (I live in turkey, my mum lives in the uk) then I got it into my head she was trying to kill herself, I was sure that's what she was doing. Days later my mum called, she was fine. 1 month later she came to visit, she told me one month before she took pills and vodka and tried to end her life. I wasn't sure why I was shocked!
Then one night, we were out in the town and I burst out, I felt like there will be an earthquake, I don't no why, it just came over me. Everyone laughed but the next day I was right there was a massive earthquake in japan 7.8. Another time I was at home and all of a sudden I felt depressed, I felt something was going to happen, but I couldn't stop it. The next day, 20 soldiers were killed in an accident.
When my mum came to stay 2 months ago, she told me she felt someone was in my home. One night she got completely hysterical she said there was a women standing over me all the time. I got angry and told my mum to leave.
