Since I've moved to the Pacific Northwest my psychic ability has expanded HUGELY!
It was acutely tested when we stayed at an Historical Hotel in Hood River. The Hotel was built in 1888 & is haunted by the woman who originally owned it, I'll call her Jane.
The 1st time we stayed Jane walked down the hall & knocked on our door at night. After she'd done it a few times, I sat by the peephole to watch. Seeing nothing but hearing footsteps & knocking... She even turned the doorknob! The 2nd night I heard noise in the room & looked down to see my clothes scattered on the floor. When I sat up, there were footsteps running down the hall. I later found out a few employees hear Jane. Jane's original quarters were just down the hall from our 1st room.
Underneath the hotel is a banquet room that used to be a Saloon and Dance Hall. When I went down there I stood where I was sure there'd been a gunfight. You can almost hear the old time piano and see the railroad workers. The original floor and pillars are still there and it hangs heavy with memories.
The 2nd time we stayed on bottom floor. The 1st night I smelled hay & I could hear horses in the hall. The next morning I asked the front desk and found out those rooms used to be stables. The long hall went to the street, which is how the carriages entered and exited.
The next night I PURPOSELY tried to contact Jane. I went to her floor & talked to her for 90 minutes. I told her that she didn't need to stay & could move on & be with her loved ones. At first I felt a child walk around me. I heard hear a faint giggle as the little ghost hugged my legs. Then I felt a breeze & smelled a strong scent of lavender (her perfume). I asked Jane to follow me. I went downstairs & felt her behind me. I could hear her softly humming.
When we got to the 1st floor balcony. I told her to let go & move on. I could see the glow of her spirit. I told her to go up and embrace her loved ones who've been waiting so long for her. I said that this world has moved on and there's no more place for you here. Let go and rest.
I felt a SQUEEZING around my throat & knew she was VERY ANGRY. She surrounded me with a loud NO! I apologized & broke the tie. I was coughing and spitting from being choked. She rushed back upstairs. I realized at that moment the reason why she hadn't moved on. She was deadly afraid of what lies beyond. She's afraid of going to Hell.
I wondered who the child was and hoped she'd be ok. I went back upstairs to see, but Jane was too angry to let me. I felt pressure & darkness pushing on me. It was a warning to stay away.
Unfortunately, my sleep was disturbed with nightmares all night long. Jane scalded me in the shower the next morning (I know it was her). I won't be going back there.
