Hi, my name is Matt and I have a sixth sense.
It all started when I was a kid, living in a very haunted house. A lot of things happened in that house that nobody could explain. You can read those stories here.
As time went on and I got older, I started noticing that I have the ability to sense ghosts, or spirits, whichever you prefer to call them. I got it from my dad, who can also do this. He apologized once to me for it. I enjoy it, but it torments him.
The fact of the matter is, I feel like I’m crazy because of it. I’m at an impasse. On one side of it, I know, I KNOW, what it is I can do and the gift that has been given to me. On the other side, I feel like a freak. I don’t like telling people about it because I don’t want to be judged. And I know people judge, I’m one of them. 99% of the time when someone tells me they’re psychic or can sense ghosts, I don’t believe them. I don’t do it out of spite or out of hate, I just think that a majority of people who think they have that ability are lying. I really don’t even know why I feel that way. However, it’s for that reason that I don’t like to tell others I have that gift.
Because of this, I feel alone. My friends typically don’t believe me. My wife does, but I don’t think I’ve ever spoken to her about it that much.
Another reason I don’t like telling people is because of this. I used to be friends with the lady who runs the very popular website Grave Addiction. While speaking with her time and time again via email or phone, she told me a guy she worked with had issues with his house. I instantly got vivid images in my head about his house and what was there. I passed the info along to her and she passed it on to him. I then found out that he was lying and doesn’t believe in ghosts. That pissed me off and she took his side, not able to see why I was pissed off. We haven’t spoken much since.
That instance aside, I know what I have and can do and I know that it’s true. I’ve confirmed it many times. I like to do that, not just for those people I might be helping, but for myself as well, so that I know I’m not crazy.
Anyway, that’s just a little bit about me and what’s going on with me. I created this blog so that I could get my stories out. I understand why there are skeptics, and believe me, I am most of the time. But for me, I know that there are things out there that we do not understand, and things that we might never understand. But I am a firm believer in ghosts, spirits, and everything that goes along with it. And no skeptic will ever change my mind on that.
For the record, I’m not trying to change any skeptics minds either. I’m just sharing my stories.
Currently I live with my wife in my Grandmother’s old house. My Grandfather built it during the Great Depression and only he and my Grandmother have lived in it, until now. I’ve currently lived in this house for 10 years, 12 collectively, and my wife has been here with me since 2008. This house is also haunted and I will be sharing stories of it as well (found here).
For a couple of years I had a ghost hunting group with a friend of mine. We did a bunch of hunts and I had a bunch of evidence collected and posted to our website. We haven’t been a “group” for quite a few years now, and I just went to look at the website and get my evidence off of it and the site is gone. I guess she finally took it down. If only I knew how to contact her, I’d try to get it all back. We shall see. UPDATE: I just found her on Facebook! She says she believes that evidence is on a disc somewhere at her house and she’ll hunt it down for me. If she has it, I’ll share it here.
