    Re: Deliberately Shutting off Psychic Function

    I do have a position on ghosts. I live in a senior building,and can count the number of people here that have died in the building. Many here are in their 70-80's,and death has taken perhaps 10-15 people over the 6 years I have lived here. I have yet to sense or interact with a restless spirit here.

    I would think if there was going to be a ghost,it would be here,but I have never seen or heard one.

    Just my personal experience.
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    My boyfriend has been seeing them from a fairly young age (I dunno, maybe 10-sh?), and after so many years, it seems that the reaction to seeing one is just, "Oh, there's a thing. I wonder what I'll have for dinner tonight?"

Trapped or lost spirits are absolutely a possibility, but my understanding is that most 'spirits' that do the same thing over and over, which don't interact when spoken to, and which don't actively recognise a person who has seen/noticed them, are actually imprints.
    You're right. I work with 5 adults with a variety of disabilities. 2 are in their 60s but seem older because of early onset dementia. The building wasn't always a supported living home but that's not to say a previous owner hadn't died on the stairs.

    The house actually closed for refurbishments about 11 years ago. It had been a supported living home prior to that but the residents were moved out and then when it reopened, new residents and a new staff team were moved in. I only know about residents that lived there after the refurbishments, and there has been only one death on the premises in that time. A former resident died a few years ago but had been moved to a nursing home (we're not really equipped for nursing care because all but one of our rooms are upstairs), and another died from a heart attack while staying at his sister's. They were all male though.

    I know of at least one member of staff who knew the house before the refurbishments. I'll try picking her brain.

    I don't know how affective it will be, but I've decided to try imagining a padlock on my 3rd eye so I can literally lock up the chakra if I see something I'm not ready for. I'm going to be more vigilant about shielding too.

    When it comes to the shadows (I dunno what else to call them, but it's more like an aura without a person inside), I'm the same. I stopped seeing them until the latter end of last year, but saw them on a daily basis until 2010 when I lost my faith and rejected everything magical or metaphysical. They can take me off guard and there was a day last year when I kept seeing a ghostly black cat that unnerved me a little, but I generally just shrug it off.

    If sightings like the old lady are going to become more common, I hope I can learn to shrug those off too.
