My Personal School of Shadows
While playing in the front yard with the neighborhood kids when I was five-years-old, I noticed a little girl, about my age, walking down a hilly sidewalk across the street from my house. As she approached, I saw blood dripping from the corner of her mouth.
As she passed our little group, I went up to her and asked, "Little girl, are you all right?"
She walked right past me as if I were invisible with a dazed look in her eyes.
None of the other kids appeared to notice or even see her. They kept playing. I watched her back as she walked slowly down the sidewalk until she disappeared from sight.
Years later, I realized the reason no one else noticed her was because they didn't see her. She was the first spirit I ever saw. But she wasn't the last. Unfortunately.
Seeing spirits scared me well into my late thirties when I finally discovered how to get rid of them. Thank goodness. Because by then, I had to teach my sons how to make them disappear.
Having had a lifetime of odd, and sometimes spooky supernatural experiences led me to start writing paranormal books. Maybe it’s a way for me to come to terms with the strange gift handed down to me through my mother and paternal grandmother.
Whether you can see them or not, spirits of good and evil move in the shadow world surrounding us. They can influence your behavior, cause trouble, warn you or help you. In some rare cases, they can take a person over. Psychiatry calls it MPD, multiple personality disorder or schizophrenia. It often shows up in addicts and alcoholics. Most of you are too young to remember alcohol was once called spirits. It would help for you to learn more about them.
To this day, I wonder who the little girl was and why she appeared to me.
