Could I be a sensitive?
Posted 23 July 2009 - 12:11 AM
The earliest one happened when I was about 9. All my bedroom furniture was left to me by my great grandmother. I was standing in front of my dresser one night when a pencil jumped about six inches off it and dropped right next to my foot.
One summer, my family and I took a trip to Graceland. The cottage that Vernon used to live in (the one Elvis demolished and later had rebuilt) gave me feelings I couldn't explain. I got chills even though it was July and felt very unwelcome. I just backed up toward the door and left. While I was walking on the trail that leads to his grave, I heard a deep, velvety, unmistakable voice whisper in my ear: "Hey there, little darlin'." I knew it had to be The King himself because no one else was nearby and no one has ever called me "little darlin'" in my life.
The downright scariest experience I ever had happened when I was 17. I went on a school trip to New York City, where we did all the typical touristy things like Times Square. Our last full day in Manhattan, we went to Ground Zero at dusk.
As I stood on the observation deck looking into the crater where Tower 1 used to be, things started occurring. I remember gripping onto the fence with one hand and the railing with the other. I became rooted to the spot and couldn't release my grip on the fence or the rail. My heart was pounding, I was breathing heavily, and generally feeling immense terror and panic. I don't know how long I stayed that way. All I remember was a chaperone tapping me on the shoulder, which abruptly jerked me out of it.
I have never actually seen a spirit or had one try to communicate with me (except Elvis). In between the major events, there have been lots of little things. For example, I heard shuffling footsteps going up and down the stairs and hall at a friend's house one night when no one else was awake; my friend told me the next morning that her house is haunted by an old man who died there.
Most times, I do not feel frightened or threatened; if I get a feeling that someone or something doesn't want me in a certain place, I just leave.
I would also like to know if sensitivity can be passed on through generations. I believe my mother is a sensitive as well, but the idea makes her uncomfortable. Her childhood home was built on a Native American burial ground; she had terrible nightmares about Indians long before anyone told her what the house was sitting on. Other relatives further back on my mother's side have seen and felt various unexplainable things as well.

I don't know if this counts as "sensitive" or not, but I have weird and often accurate episodes of deja vu. The episodes vary in degrees of strength. My most vivid one occurred on the school trip to New York. I had never been there in my life, but I truly felt like I had. I could mostly navigate Manhattan without directions or even having to pull out a map. While walking down 5th Avenue with some friends, one of them started to turn down a side street.
"Don't go that way unless you wanna wind up in Little Italy," the words just came tumbling out of my mouth before I fully realized it.
Everybody immediately thought I had been to New York before even though I repeatedly told them I hadn't. Nobody understood why I couldn't explain how I knew my way around.
Another experience I forgot to mention above happened in St. Patrick's Cathedral. I felt an air of quiet desperation the moment I stepped inside, someone clinging on to fading hope. The cathedral is only a few blocks from Ground Zero. Could I have been experiencing the emotions of a rescue worker or someone else who came there seeking comfort during that horrible week in 2001 and never returned? In a trancelike state, I walked to a corner of the cathedral to light a candle and say a prayer. The sense of desperation left me almost immediately afterward.

Just my 2cents.
