This is a great thread sled, I've decided to join the site so I can reply and follow the updates from the various members who have fascinating things
going on in their lives at the moment ('
') I've been reading from the very beginning for the past week and I'm finally caught up!
I haven't really experienced any in my face paranormal activity (I think spirits recognise that I wouldn't be able to cope with it..) but my older
sister is very sensitive and she thinks slightly psychic. There are a few examples I have in mind:
1) The chocolate stealing ghost! One night myself and my younger sister were staying at our older sister's house for the night, typical take
away/movie night. My younger sister ordered a slice of chocolate cake and didn't fancy it yet so she put on top of the microwave before bed, and I
specifically closed the lid on the container to preserve it (it was a square polystyrene burger box). Then in the morning my older sister called us
down to 'clean up the mess me made eating the cake!' which neither of us had touched as we had both shared a bed upstairs (I barely slept all night -
i was already aware of a presence in the house) anyway we came downstairs to the kitchen to see chocolate cake smeared over the walls, smashed behind
the microwave (without the microwave being pulled out, it was flat against the wall) and cake scattered across the work surfaces and oven. The
weirdest thing was the perfect indent in the remaining cake, the whole slice was there apart from what looked just like a removed spoonful, like
someone had dug in to it, and the lid of the box had been smashed into from above. None of us had sleepwalked or anything like that, and the smears on
the walls were too high up to have been made by my sister's kids, or dog, or even mice. We weren't freaked out though, just attributed it to the
poltergeist, or our late nan visiting us. Another incident happened when my sister was alone in her home, she had been given a box of wrapped
chocolates (A box of Roses, the Brits on here will know what I mean, they stand upright and are the shape of a rectangle but wider on the top) she ate
a couple of chocolates but the box was practically full when she put it, upright, on her microwave before bed. The next morning the box was upside
down on the microwave with all of the chocolates missing, with no wrappers or evidence to be found anywhere.. ('
') I know these in particular
aren't the best stories haha
2) She seems to have things that follow her from house to house, doing small things like whispering her name or standing in front of small lights that
seemed to get blocked out.
3)Premonitions, she, like I do, gets quite strong de ja vu to the point of being able to correctly predict what someone is about to do and say for
several seconds. She also had a dream our nan had a dark mass on her lungs, six months before she was diagnosed with cancer and several tumors (Though
she thinks she may have just subconsciously recognised signs that she was ill)
My late nan's home always felt like there were presences..not always scary, unless like me you were a little kid with a vivid imagination on her dark
windowless staircase! My family has a history with mental illness and I believe that maybe a sensitivity to this goes hand in hand with psychic
abilities perhaps. My mum and her siblings had a very tough childhood and her sister in particular seemed to get the brunt of it (many of these things
are never openly spoken about in our family and I don't like to ask painful questions) she became very interested in witchcraft, I think Wicca and
Paganism mainly which developed in to more dark magic, and my mum remembers her cursing my nans house when was forced to move back in during her
teens. Since she has fallen heavily to alcohol and drugs and seems quite bipolar on the rare occasions we speak to her (she moved far away to Dorset
when I was young and most of her children are disillusioned with her, as are my family after the craziness she's said to us) We all seem to be quite
spiritual though, despite reuniting only once in the past 7 years. My Uncle suffers from Schizophrenia that was triggered as a teenager from smoking
weed excessively. Anxiety and depression run through all of us to different extents, thankfully as of yet it has not been too severe in myself. This
may be going way off topic but it seems to be linked :/..
Since reading this thread and the experience you guys are having with your spirit guides, I have become very intrigued and am going to try and connect
with my spirit guide, and it seems the best way is through meditation? Though I know it's important to protect oneself with the white light so will be
doing some more research before I begin and waiting for my ear infection to clear so I have no pain distracting me..
Thank you for starting this thread and to everyone who has posted their amazing experiences, I will have to go back and reread all the pages!
