A friend put me on to this site and urged me to submit so here goes apparently my experiences as she puts it may be interesting.
Well I guess really I have had ghosts (spirits or whatever) my whole life (as long as I can remember anyway). It's kind of like I have people standing behind me all the time whispering to me. I have two university degrees (working on a doctorate right now for my third all in business) and really these 'people' have helped a lot with that. They whisper me the answers to exams, they whisper me encouragement when I am down and tired. They have saved my life on one occasion. I had a friend who was going on a snack run from the beach and he asked if I wanted to come and they were literally screaming at me not to go and I didn't and he had a car accident and died.
General knowledge is fun especially when I can trot out expertise in a field that I have never studied, know intimately the contents of books I have never read and am seemingly infallible. I am multi-lingual just because I literally have someone constantly translating for me in my ear and telling me how to say what I want to say.
They have helped my career no end. I'm an HR manager and I am considered extremely good with people, perceptive and politically astute and its largely because there is always a voice whispering what people really think or what really happened or what is going on behind my back in my ear and offering me constant advice.
Have I ever seen them? No. I catch flashes in my peripheral vision and I can feel hands on my shoulders and on my back very frequently. I seem to have good fortune when I get nudged to do something unparticular and get steered away from the crappy stuff.
I have never heard a name from any of them but they just feel friendly and I guess really I don't know what being lonely feels like. Its like I always have someone there letting me know for a fact that I am never alone and that no matter what I am loved. I have never gotten the feeling that I am wished any harm just that no matter what I must succeed and that I am loved beyond belief.
I have an aunt who says she is a medium who told me that something is talking to me but she didn't know what. I do know a few things about them though firstly that at least one are very old. I know because when I was quoting once a lecturer commended me on my knowledge and said that he had never had a student who actually spoke middle French. I don't actually speak it I was just saying what I was told to say and it's a fairly rare language by today's standards and several people have recognized that the Latin vocabulary that I have is far from the Latin taught today. I hear 12 separate voices on a regular basis with a couple of others who 'drop in' from time to time and I can recognize that when I do feel a touch which voice it belongs to as it were. I know that when I directly talk to them they talk back so I can ask questions; float hypothetical's and so forth. The other thing I know for a fact is they obviously learn. I mean I learn myself but I get advice on new items, articles of legislation things I should know and get told about current events.
I was trapped in an awful relationship for a long time (I had gotten a girl I was seeing pregnant) and they told me I had to do the right thing but then 5 years later they said it was time to leave now and that I was good and honorable and that it was time to go where I was meant to go and I left my wife and was in no relationship for a little while then the girl I met at university and had dreamed of your all those years turned up and now we are in a relationship.
I have read many scary encounters on here (I had a browse), many perplexing encounters and everything in between. I have never been spiritual person but in all honesty if it's actually true and I am not just slightly odd then I have nothing but good things to say about ghosts. They make me smile, the comfort me when I am alone, they look out for me and they do anything to help me.
My friend said to let you know that no one of my immediate family is deceased (apart from one grandparent) and I can't think of anything to account for having a group of ghosts with me but what I can say for sure is that I hope they never go away because if I lost that feeling of never being alone then I don't know what I would do. I have lived throughout Australia and Europe and they have never gone away except once for a very short while when my family and I went to Tintagel in England and they told me that they couldn't come to a certain place but it would be alright and that they would be waiting for me.
