Just as it asks in the title. Does it happen suddenly or slowly over time? Do all mediums or clairvoyants have a similar story?

I can quote the following

I can quote the following case.  My grandfather had a farm and he needed a new well drilled to supply more water to the cultivations he was planning.  He went to a dowser who, needless to say, found not one but three good spots to drill an irrigation well.
When inquired on how he discovered this "gift" he told the following story.  After entering puberty he noticed that each time he was crossing a particular square to attend church he felt "strange". Initially he just felt a trifle queasy but as the years went on he began to feel violently ill, to the point he needed to take an alternative rout to church. Traditional medicine could not help so he turned to a Capuchin monk (as I've already said in Catholic countries they are widely believed to be have lot of "occult" knowledge) for help.
This monk quickly discovered the nature of his "illness": under the square a number of deep wells were drilled in the past and then paved over when they weren't needed anymore. He also taught him how to "control" his gift and find deep-running water.
He didn't use a divining rod as usually pictured: he just walked over an area and when he started to feel "strange" he marked the location, double checking it later. I have no explanation to give, except that... it worked!

Mediums

Probably more importantly - how would you prove that you were a clairvoyant or a medium? Or is it more a question of belief.

'sensitive'the right word?

Since I was 3 years old,I have seen and heard people that are not 'there'.

There is nothing spooky about it in general,although I have had a few experiences where I have definatelly been in the presence of what I dont think started out as humans one way or the other.

The most disturbing thing I have seen,has to be in South-Africa where I am from.
A few years ago I was at a friends house,helping the family to set up tables etc for a birthday party outside.
I was laying out some plates etc,when out of the corner of my eye,I saw this very small 'person',about two feet in height,with a little old fashioned white linen dress and turban like scarf around her head.
This little person was really old,all wrinkled,but what disturbed me the most was that she had this very malevolant look in the eyes and her presence made me feel lightheaded as well.
I sensed about her that she had links with the slave colony,and she was definatelly very AWARE of me looking at her.
Two of my friends said they could feel something was really wrong,but they saw nothing but a small shadowy figure.
I can write for hours about all that I have seen,but my question is,what would a person like me be called, a sensitive,psychic etc etc?
I often 'know'what will happen in a day or two,and then it does exactly,I can sense when people havent long to live etc etc.I would like to add that whenever I see a spirit it is always with audio as well.

Did you turn to look straight at the figure? If so, did it change its appearance at all?

In answer to Mysteryshoppers question:

Hi there,

yes,I watched this little person for what must have been a good 5-6 minutes,what I meant was that I initially saw her movement out of the corner of my eye.And no,it did not change its appearance at all,the most extraordinary feelings i sensed around it,was how very aware it was of me.

Sorry,my english isnt always the best when it comes to describing things :-)

Does anyone think that it is

Does anyone think that it is possible for someone like myself,who doesn't really have any extra senses with regard to spirits,to develop anything?

I have the belief that there is a spirit world etc. However I have only ever had a few encounters that were so brief that I brushed it off as my mind playing tricks. Only later did I think about it a bit more and became curious.
I wonder if my own fear would hold me back and whether everyone has the ability,no matter how limited it would be?

Someonestoles,I am sure that

Someonestoles,I am sure that all of us have some form of sensitivity,however small it may be :-)

Do you have anyone that you trust that are a true psychic to give you a reading where you can ask Spirit all your questions regarding this?And I dont mean some lousy rubber chicken pretending to be a psychic at a gazzilion pounds per minute?

I am sorry if I am going to offend anyone with what I am typing now..but ANYONE with the true gift..will NEVER ask for money.Yes I know they need to make a living also,like all of us do,but being who and what I am myself,I just can never see how coin exhanging hands for what should be pure and simple help from the Spirit world could ever be o.k?
As for your other questions,fear does hold you back,but may I ask what exactly you are afraid off?Horror movie type images that got imbedded over the years in your mind?
Unfortunatelly the truth is way less glamorous...(I am smiling here,because this is so true),we all started out as Energy,and when a person dies,that energy remains sometimes,good or bad,confused or angry,all it is,is still just energy.
So if you are afraid of visually upsetting things,ghosthunting is not for you(talking in general here),never have anything I have SEEN really upset,but the energies surrounding a spirit,now THAT can be frightening.

I could go on and on the whole day,but need some breakfast now :-)

 I think movie images have

 I think movie images have probably given me a fear,but more of the unknown I guess. I have seen things in my own house and haven't been frightened. My dog however went nuts.

I know what human beings are capable of,so I imagine their energies would be frightening.
I am unaware of anyone that I could really trust that is genuine. I guess I will just keep going along until it kind of "Falls in my lap". My life tends to happen like that alot.

Thanks for your thoughts Domus. :D

Someonestoleshell, I tend to

Someonestoleshell,

I tend to think that is exactly why most people fear 'ghosts'.
Hollywood portrays them as slobbering psychotic scary things,always on the lurk for some unsuspecting human,as theyre sole purpose is to scare the living daylights out of any living thing,lol.

Nothing could be farther from the truth,as with us living humans,there always are balance,there are mostly good,there are some bad,and a very tiny majority are outright evil.

You are quite right,human/spirit energies are both frightening at times.
As for your dog,animals have slightly higher vibrations than our own,thus it is easier for them to sense,hear or see things that we dont.
If youre dog just barked or acts interrested,its fine,but if he really whimpers,and you feel waves of fear rolling of him(I know that sounds melodramatic,but thats exatly how I pick up on animal energies),you might want to consider making life a little bit easier for the doggy..and ask whomever is in your house in a calm,gentle and respectfull manner,to please be considerate and try and avoid scaring the dog.

As for someone falling into your lap,I am smiling here..for they will most certainly do Someonestoles,so keep on avoiding those Fakes..and remember the biggest universal law,LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE.And I dont mean in a cheesy sort of way,lol,but in who or what people tend to attract once they decided to embrak on theyre Journey spiritually.

No problem,my thoughts are free,no need for thanks,I am so glad I joined this site :-)
