Clairvoyant and Clairaudient Experiences
I tend to be a logical person and can usually explain away any strange things that happen. I also feel very connected to nature...I've always been that way, like I have to be outside in the natural realm or I will suffocate. I also have a strange need to be close to water. I've been to the desert on several occasions and I always feel very claustrophobic and find breathing difficult. It's like I know I'm not near water and my body freaks out. I know I'm probably rambling, but maybe this info will somehow be relevant to my stories.
Anyway, I've had minor clairvoyant and clairaudient experiences, nothing too major or that scared me, and I've found I can influence the thoughts of others - which kind of freaks me out - but these four experiences, I just don't know how to take.
The Vulture Feeder
When I was 8 years old, my family moved into this new house in the mountains of Virginia. The backyard sloped up into a sparse pine forest. One day, when I was playing outside, I saw this person walking through the forest. They stopped, took out a bag and something they held to their mouth, like a whistle or animal call. Within minutes, maybe half a dozen black vultures landed at the person's feet and they proceeded to feed the birds. I watched this for a few minutes, and I know the person saw me because I remember seeing them turn their head and look at me a few times. After the feeding stopped, the person walked away and for whatever reason, I looked down at my foot. I found a hand carved wooden flute sticking up out of the ground. I picked it up, but felt it wasn't mine to possess, so I placed it back in the ground.
My two best friends and I held a séance when we were teenagers. The youngest of us wanted to contact her grandmother, whom she'd never met. We sat in a circle on the floor, closed our eyes, and placed a few objects in the middle to entice the spirits. One was an old brass candle stick. When we called her grandmother, I felt a cool breeze blow past my cheek and heard the candle stick fall over on the floor. My friend had wanted to be the medium through which her grandmother spoke while my other friend asked questions. The only weird oart was I was getting the answers before my friend...but she was saying the exact same things I was hearing in my head.
Healing a Bird
I was home one day from college, sitting on my parent's front porch, having a cigarette, when I heard this loud rustling from the bushes. I go over and investigate and find a robin, with a damaged wing, trying to fly. I don’t know what made me do it, but I got up and picked up the bird. I held it in both hands, willing it to be calm. It flopped out of my hands and I picked it up again. I let it go and it flew away.
For the past 2 years, off and on, I will hear voices or sounds when I'm trying to go to sleep. I know the majority of the time; it's due to stress because most of the time it just sounds like garbled radio static. Last night, though, I was still awake - I had just laid my head on my pillow and not even shut my eyes when I heard someone speaking in my ear. I could make out what they were saying crystal clear. it was a young man's voice and he was asking me for a cigar. His voice was scratchy and gave me the impression that he was around 24 years old, with straw blonde hair and a straggly blonde goatee. Maybe my imagination was getting the better of me, but it was definitely weird. I've never heard voices that clear or had a visual impression of the person.
These four experiences definitely stand out in my mind as being unexplainable and any help or advice would be much appreciated.
