I Can Feel, Smell, and See Shadows
Every since I was a little girl, I have seen people who can disappear in thin air.
When I lived in Arkansas and was 6 yrs old, I woke up one night to see an elderly gentleman fixing coffee and then walking into our den to rock in a chair. The lights were off, but I could see him as he smiled and sipped his coffee. I guess I was taking to him when my mother turned on the lights and then he was gone.
She took me to a shrink. I can't remember the outcome. Several days later, I was asleep and this little white dog woke me up. He ran to the bathroom and walked thru the wood pantry and disappeared under the clothes. I was trying to find him and my parents woke up and assured me it was a dream.
Growing up, I could sense and feel someone touching my hair, carresing my head and once, even sitting on the side of my bed. I woke up and a full fledged Indian chief sat there looking at me. I screamed my head off. My mom came again and sent me to see a shrink.
Since becoming an adult, many things have happened. I see people walking thru my house. I can't really make out a face that I recognize. I feel a cold wind pass by, sometimes I feel someone sit on my bed.
One night, I felt what I thought was a cat leap on my covers and walk up to me but, but no one was there.
After my father died, I heard him call my name clear as a bell. After my mother died of cancer, my son was born 3 weeks later.
I dreamt one night that she came to visit and held the baby. We had a very long conversation about our life
and how well she felt. I saw her running thru a field of flowers and was happy.
She had been sick and depressed for many years, a stroke left her where she could not walk without a cane and now she was free. When I woke up, her shoes were at the foot of my bed as if she had just stepped out of them. I wasn't afraid.
Once my ex-husband and I were fussing because my back was itching and he would not scratch it for me. My baby was 4 months old and as I was walking my crying baby, I felt my mother's fingernails go across my back. I knew she was with me then.
Now, I am starting to feel a presense around me quite a bit. My dog watches something and growls.
I have moved out west into an apartment where strange things happen every day. I hear foot steps in the hallway, see dark images walk past my bar area in the kitchen, sounds like someone is cooking in the kitchen. I felt someone rub up against me the other day. And just 2 days ago, I heard my father call out some numbers like from a lottery. He loved to gamble and was good at it.
I smell my grand pappy's pipe. I have smelled my granny's youth dew powder several times and no one wears it here. I wouldn't get spooked so bad if I knew it was just family.
Please tell me what you think.
Also, for years, I've heard muffled voices. I can't really make out the conversations. Usually, when I am home alone or drifting off to sleep. Sounds like several people grouped together. I can sometimes, see people who have passed on, like as if they are standing right in front of me. They are so vivid in my mind.
