Paranormal me...

So a month or so ago I shared one of my recent Paranormal experiences on my Facebook page and was rather shocked by the amount of responses I got. Until now I haven't really gotten in to sharing my own experiences, mostly because beyond telling you the stories, I have no proof and when it comes down to the Paranormal, people tend to want proof. But after seeing how sharing that simple story inspired so many others to open up, I've decided to share some more of my experiences from over the years. You don't have to believe them, and it's fine if you don't. However, I do hope that my experiences reach the ears - or rather eyes - of someone who may need to hear that they aren't alone in their own experiences.

While I'm going to work on posting my stories over the next few months I would like to share with you some back ground here. I have had more experiences than I think most people have, or at least more than anyone I've ever spoke with. I have always, since I was a child, had the ability to hear and see spirits, entities, beings and the like. As a small child I was told these were demons and evil and that I should have feared them or I was medicated and told I was simply seeing things. Needless to say I quickly learned to stop sharing my gift and keep what I was seeing and hearing to myself. Unfortunately, as many of you know, psychic sensitivity tends to be a use it or loose it skill. And although I do my best to cultivate my gifts now, through my early years I did not, and my gifts have greatly dissipated over the years. I can often still see them, and from time to time I can still hear them, mostly at this point, I can simply sense them. As I focus and exercise my gift I am certain some of that will change and I will get stronger, but for now, this is where my path has led and I am proud to be here.

It's also important for you to know that where I live, you'd be hard pressed to find a building or space without at least a minimal amount of spiritual activity. A small town was first officially settled here in 1769, however, people lived here long prior to that. Native settlements on this land have been dated back as far as 1050. And being along not just a river, but one of the few northern flowing rivers, and at the bottom of a long valley, energy and spirits have a tendency to stay put. Add to all of that the very wayward history of the area, which includes battles during the American Revolution, Underground Railroad stops and activity (much of which is still evident), countless coal mines - and the accidents which come with them, and so much more... Even those who don't have "gifts" can usually share at least a few stories of activity after living here for a while...

So when you start to see story after story, please don't chalk it up to imagination simply because of the numbers, instead understand that this is because of a combination of my "gift" and the sheer volume of local activity...

  1. It must be a blessing that, at times, feels like a curse.

  2. When I was young, it was very much a curse, because my family made me feel it was. But as an adult, I couldn't love it more...
