It's quite likely that you did have "paranormal" experiences as a child but took no note of them because it was a normal thing in your life. Children,
with or without abilities, often talk about Grandma or Grandpa as if they know them even though the grandparents passed away prior to the child's
birth. There are some who theorize that some of children's imaginary friends are actually spirits.
It's also not uncommon for "psychic" abilities to appear in the teen through young adult years. It is up to you whether to use & hone the skill or
ignore it. I describe it as "hanging up the phone". When I'm busy or not available, I hang up my end of the phone & tell them to wait. Depending upon
the strength of your ability, you will have to learn how to manage the "phone line".
Learning to accept is a personal journey. I understand completely!! I'm a happy skeptic with mountains of evidence to the contrary, gathered
personally, so I know it's uncontaminated. I do not understand how I can sit in a room and carry on a conversation with someone not really there yet
the recordings clearly show that I ask, he answered, then I ask & he answers. How is it that I can walk into house, see it as it is but at the same
time see how it used to be? Sometimes I just "know" things all of a sudden that I shouldn't know. Sometimes, I get forewarning & sometimes I get
"missions" (places I need to go & do something). I was told a month in advance to look for Dorethea. I told a friend going on an investigation the
next night, at the end of the long hall, on the left, look for Dorethea. Nothing. A month later, I joined her & some experienced friends on an
investigation at a hotel. Down the long hallway (a wing of the hotel), the last room on the left, had a brass plaque on the door saying that was
Dorathea's room. It was her room anytime she visited the resort. How in heaven's name did I know a month in advance a woman's name & where to find
So, it's definitely spooky & pretty unexplainable! It's not something I broadcast publicly. My family knows because I've been forced to deliver
messages. There was once a co-worker who I had to warn her stove was broken at the back right burner because her father was driving me crazy ( turns
out the stove was leaking gas at the back right burner that could have caused a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning). A few friends know, mostly just my
ghostie investigation friends, but a couple others, too. I never meet someone & say I'm psychic even if I do get an overwhelming impression. Unless
it's something hazardous, I keep quiet.
Perhaps joining a ghost investigation group would help you make friends to whom you could unburden your secret. And, if you're lucky on an
investigation or two, you'll come home with evidence that you can personally guarantee isn't contaminated to share with some close friends by saying",
OK, so I did this investigation for fun but look what turned up" and ask them for ways to dispute the evidence. Don't take it personally if they
nit-pick. It will help you sort out your friends most likely to not freak out when you start to let them into your other life. Start small with both
your friends & definitely how much abilities you have. Say like I say maybe, " It's so weird that sometimes I just know things that I couldn't
possibly know". The usual response is "Ohhhh, do me!!! What can you find out about my future??". That will open the door for you to communicate
honestly about who you are fully.
Here for support or to bounce ideas off of if you need me! I had a devil of a time with "people knocking on my head" before I had a stroke. Now, the
process is different, more difficult and extremely energy draining so I avoid places where I know will be overwhelmed.
Good Luck!! Have a great rest of your day!!
