It was 2002 and I had moved to a Toronto apartment with a friend. We lived separate lives and had different schedules. She worked 9 to 5 and I was waitressing, working into the wee hours of the morning. As I mentioned previously, I closed the door to anything psychic.
Every night I would start to fall asleep and suddenly I would feel a presence in the room. I could feel someone standing in my bedroom. Even then, at 30 years old I was afraid, I would pull the sheets over my head and hold my breath, hoping that they would leave. They didn't go anywhere but eventually I would fall asleep. I would be woken often in the night hearing conversations I couldn't understand and receive impressions of what this spirit was saying to me. Something wasn't quite right in my new home.
My roommate and I had 3 cats between us. My cats weren't very nosy and they just lazed around like most
do. The other cat, was young, agile and she would flit about the apartment. I would come home from work and find the kitchen cupboard doors open, I would systematically close them, assuming my house mate left them open or that her cat kept opening them. The next morning, the cupboards would be open again.
Almost everyday I would find them that way. My psychic friend addressed it and stated that a female spirit had passed in the hallway outside of our place. She was a drug addict and she was searching my apartment for her hidden drugs. I had the story confirmed by someone very close to me that this was the scenario. I
didn't see her, I just knew someone was there besides us. I thought that if I moved away from my previous residence and started new in a city that I would leave all of this behind me.
In 2004, I was gifted a reading from a now famous psychic. She told me in my session that I was psychic. She
believed it so much that she offered to mentor me for free, giving me her personal phone number and said to call her when I needed her. I told her she was full of it. I was in denial.
As I started to read about psychic development and practice I discovered that my readings were accurate. In the meantime my friend took pleasure in taking me to haunted locations. I was still fearful and didn't understand how to process so much information. She took me to this home near Alliston, On. I had no clue what to do if anything at all. It was one of the most terrifying, enlightening and sickening experiences I've had to date.
