I’m beginning another study. For lack of a really good name like “Haunted Formula,” I’m calling it “Riding the Paranormal Highway.”
This time, I want to concentrate on (what I call) the “paranormal highway.” I want to focus on things such as near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, psychic readings, and ghostly events to try and figure out how these things manifest from what might be a spiritual realm or alternate realm into the physical realm. It’s that transference from good geology/good construction/historic events in haunted places to the actual hauntings that has me curious. It’s the ability to hold an object and somehow gather a stored history from it that has me baffled. It’s the stories of leaving one’s body and traveling or perhaps studying one’s body from above that have me intrigued.
In this post, I’d like to begin this series with the subject of psychometry since I can explain this from my firsthand ability. Psychometry is the ability to read the history of an object by holding it. I want to break this down to as many clues as I can to try and discern what we’re dealing with.
Genetics: I can only confirm that one of my aunts was most definitely psychic and perhaps a grandmother. So, we can check off genetics for me.
Exposure: I grew up digging up Civil War and Revolutionary War relics and handling them. When I was a small child, I began to tell stories about the people who had last used these items. These stories were in great detail and extremely real to me as if I carried their memories.
Physicality: Near-Death: I was born showing no signs of life and it took about 4 minutes to revive me and produce a pulse and breathing. Near death is associated many times with development of psychic abilities. Electrical: I also have had a strange issue with wearing and killing watches within a week’s time, sometimes within a day’s time. I also tend to set off store alarms and on particularly vexing days, I make the TV and computer and lights freak out repeatedly until I leave the area. Synesthesia: Another physicality is that I have synesthesia. It’s a condition by which people’s senses can be “mixed up.” A person can smell color or see music. In my case, this takes the form in the spatial realm of calendars, weeks, days, and time. I see it in a 3-D form outside of my body, projecting from me in a series of tiers and twists. (see sketch above for a glimpse into my head--horror of horrors!). This ability, by the way, is identical in my mind to my psychic abilities. When I read something, I am seeing it in the same format I see the calendar, projected outward to pick up and read in different tiers. This, I believe, is significant.
Emotional: I underwent a great deal of upheaval and trauma as a child in a dysfunctional family. I was the youngest child who witnessed mature issues when I couldn’t comprehend. My family tried to shield me, but I became overly sensitive about reading cues and understanding people’s needs. I just wanted to make my parents happy, so I would try hard to understand what they needed without their saying it, as well as sensing when things were in chaos and people were lying to me. This could have given me an empath’s abilities to read.
Objects: Thus far, I have noticed that some things are easier to read, i.e. metal and other “hard” objects. Cloth and paper are more difficult, but they aren’t impossible. I’ve read objects that someone else borrowed and read the person who borrowed it and was baffled because I knew what I was reading didn’t match the person I knew who owned it. I’ve read things that have been buried for 100 years and more. I’ve touched walls in a building, furnishings, other people…it doesn’t matter. They all have information to give.
Now, I will try and cut this post short so it isn’t ridiculously long. I wanted to put in all the elements of me in relation to psychometry out there. In the next post, I hope to discuss the actual process of reading an object. Between this post and that one, perhaps we can make some conclusions to narrowing down just how that paranormal highway rolls. I really want participation from everyone who reads it and something strikes them. I'm looking for correlations and theories.
Thanks in advance!
