Hello! I am a person who has lived in several "haunted" houses starting at about 8 or 9 years old (I'm now in my 40's). At pretty much all of these places someone has actually seen a person who wasn't there. At most of them I have been witness to quite a bit of poltergiest activity. Let's just say I believe in ghosts and now a few of my more sceptical friends aren't so sceptical. I also, can feel energy sources better than most people I've met. Thunderstorms can freak me out, even though I love a good storm, because of it's energy.
Also, I have had a lot of premonition type dreams and dreams where I have conversations with people in places that I have never been. Being able to draw some of these places and describe the person in the conversations to older family members has led me to believe I have some sort of connection with some of my ancestors.
I have never been in a group actively seeking paranormal activity or talked too much about it other than to people close to me. It's always just been a normal part of life to me. The past couple of years the activity and dreams has seemed to be less for me. I've found that I'm missing it. So when I was reading an article and this site was listed in it, I thought maybe I should try to at least make a start with becoming more involved with others who are actively seeking. So any advice at this point would be greatly appreciated!
