If this isn’t in the correct forum or if it could be placed somewhere better, feel free to move it.
Just to start off, I’ve always had some sort of abilities myself. I can astral project, sense spirits, receive information from…somewhere, predict things I have no way of knowing, etc. and as a child, I recall being able to levitate things and turn my tv and lights on and off as well, though at some point I lost those couple abilities. A couple years ago, I also projected myself into someone’s dream. I’ve successfully held a few seances but otherwise, have really never practiced magick in terms of spells or crystals or any of that stuff. It’s all just raw ability that I’ve had since birth. Recently, I’ve been having a woman come to me in my sleep telling me that I’m stronger than I know and need to live up to my true potential. I don’t know who she is, and trying to figure that out is part of how I found this place. One thing I can tell is that she had some sort of motive, and she isn’t coming on her own behalf.
Now, I know it’s a little weird to push these two topics into one thread, but for some reason, I feel like there’s some sort of connection between the two. My mom was recently told that there is a demonic spirit attached to her that is causing her harm. Supposedly it’s been attached to her for a majority of her life. What’s interesting about that is that my dad became a violent and abusive alcoholic after meeting my mom. One day he just quit out of nowhere and became a totally different person, like possibly something possessed him for several years before leaving him for some reason. Around the same time, there started to be more activity around the house, mostly targeting my mom. Things she’d have would vanish, stuff would just so happen to trip her and cause her to fall, things were flying off her shelves while she tried to sleep, and she always felt like she was being watched. Now, I have definitely felt a presence, but it hasn’t ever shown any hostility towards me. In fact, there’s been times where my mom has had something vanish and started to blame me, but once she starts to blame me, the item shows back up suddenly, like whatever it is that messes with her wants to make sure I’m left out of it.
Being that I’m insanely inexperienced here, is this a guardian angel or spirit or something like that? Would that type of spirit even act in that way? Can “negative” spirits or demons develop a fondness of someone to where they could avoid haunting them specifically? I’m just not sure what to make of any of it. This is a long-standing interest that I’ve never really pursued until now, so I just don’t know much yet.
