Clairvoyance refers to the ability to perceive events or phenomena in the future beyond the scope of normal sensory contact. Similarly, clairaudience involves the capacity to hear sounds purported to exist beyond ordinary experience, such as voices from beyond.
Precognition, often termed future vision or future sign, entails a claimed psychic capability to anticipate forthcoming events.
Within my personal experiences, instances akin to channeling have transpired, although the phenomenon appears to be more empathetic in nature. These interactions have primarily involved individuals who were alive at the time I received messages from them. This phenomenon finds a semblance in the film "White Noise," where Jonathan Rivers, portrayed by Michael Keaton, becomes preoccupied with Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) following the tragic demise of his wife. In one scene, a traumatized spirit's plea compels John to rescue a woman involved in a car accident. He arrives in time to save her infant before a downed electrical line claims the mother's life. In her final moments, her soul beseeches for aid.
In my personal encounters, connections with souls have unfolded in real-time moments, occasionally involving distress while other times offering a mere glimpse through visions.
These experiences hold no particular chronological order.
Recalling a news story from years past, a young male, likely pre-teen, engaged in a disagreement with his parents over video games and subsequently fled from home. In a vision, I perceived the boy in a state of cold and isolation, resting within a partially wooded area. He lay down and drifted into slumber. Following a police search, authorities located his lifeless body in the woods near his residence. The cause of death was exposure.
Living in Ohio during the late 1990s, a radio report detailed 9-1-1 calls received by the police regarding a driver who had veered off the road and crashed. The driver contacted authorities, identifying himself as being north or east of the city. Despite searches in those directions yielding no results, I established a connection and conveyed to a witness that he was disoriented, and his overturned car lay south, concealed beyond trees. Subsequently, a trucker identified a damaged guardrail along the highway, leading to the discovery of the inebriated driver and his overturned vehicle in a field. The car's location had remained hidden due to its position south of the city, obscured by foliage.
On another occasion, within the late 1990s or early 2000s in Ohio, an elderly man with dementia wandered from his residence near downtown Columbus. Although relatives believed he had headed west toward the downtown area, I perceived that he had journeyed east. My words to a witness turned out accurate, as he was ultimately found east of his home.
My most recent occurrence veered from channeling to a pre-cognitive episode. While traversing the trails of an Owen Sound, Ontario park, a sensation originating from the surrounding hills emanated a profound sense of loneliness, marked by a "lost" sentiment. The following day's news disclosed the disappearance of a teenager within the park, with his eventual discovery attributed to his refuge in a cave to endure the night's cold temperatures.
Remarkably, I sensed this feeling of despair an hour before the individual embarked on his fateful walk. The sensation enveloped me before his loss actually occurred. While similar occurrences may have unfolded in the past, this particular instance during 2019 remains indelibly etched in memory.
It's worth noting that the ability to connect with souls isn't confined to humans. Once, I engaged in a brief conversation with a neighbor's Husky dog. Peering into its eyes, I detected pain and intuited that I would never encounter the dog again. True to this perception, the owner decided to have the dog euthanized a mere three days later, due to terminal health concerns. I chose not to disclose this experience to them or anyone else.
Two instances stand out, bearing no conclusive proof but having witnesses present during the episodes in question.
The initial occurrence took place during a late evening in Kincardine, Ontario's Hospital District, circa 2003 or 2004. Engaged in a reflective conversation with a close friend near the lakeside, I found myself receptive to paranormal messages. Shortly thereafter, I sensed the energy of a young sailor, potentially in his mid to late twenties, who had perished while engaged in duties on a cargo ship. While I surmise the vessel sank, thorough research over the years has yielded no concrete records of shipwrecks or drownings in that northern vicinity of the harbor.
Another instance unfolded within the confines of an abandoned farmhouse and its grounds. Accompanied by another medium, our combined abilities seemed to attract the lingering energies. Throughout our time there, I identified three human spirits – two male and one female – as well as a fourth entity that remained enigmatic, appearing as a shadow within the dim evening light. The two male spirits, apparently brothers, exuded an aura slightly older than their sister's. Their ages could be approximated in their twenties, possibly attired in late nineteenth or early twentieth century garments, although environmental influences may have influenced my perception. The female figure boasted long hair, extending beyond her shoulders, and donned a white dress. Protective tendencies emanated from the brothers, even in our interactions. The remaining entity appeared neutral, its presence palpable yet resistant to categorization.
Growing up in Small Town, Ontario, I enjoyed close friendships with two individuals, Ryan and Ben, from roughly fifth grade until high school graduation. Prior to visiting Ryan's home, I'd frequently place a call to inform him of my impending arrival. Countless times, upon lifting the phone receiver to dial, I'd hear Ryan's voice on the other end of the line, as if he'd initiated the call simultaneously. No dialing or ringing transpired; both our voices coalesced in unison, a phenomenon we grew accustomed to, with "hello" often overlapping our initial key presses. This occurrence raises intriguing questions about how phone connections are established before numbers are even dialed.
Encounters with dark shadows have occurred frequently. A few instances have been covered in previous accounts: one at my friend's house in Owen Sound, another at the aforementioned farm where a psychic friend joined me, and a third involving a crossroads in Nordegg.
Additional instances warrant further exploration, although they remain unexplained:
In December 2019, while driving down Concession 2 towards Inverhuron, Ontario, a towering dark shadow, resembling a man but standing over seven feet tall, abruptly dashed across the road from right to left. It vanished into the yard near a switching station and trees on the corner. This was independent of my headlights, as the figure appeared to traverse through the beams of light.
On various occasions, dark shadows were observed by several individuals in stores where I worked while residing in Ohio. These occurrences will be addressed in a separate future blog entry.
While walking the nocturnal streets of Brampton, I've spotted shadows disconnected from tangible entities. This
phenomenon commenced during my late teens in my hometown and continued through my early twenties in the city.
During an episode of sleep paralysis, I encountered a white shadow, as opposed to the typical black or grey figures. Further discussion on this matter will take place in due time.
In essence, the experiences shared span a range of interactions with ethereal entities, from vivid connections with living individuals in distress to encounters with shadows and echoes of past lives. These episodes shed light on the intricate and enigmatic nature of such occurrences, leaving us with more questions than answers.
