Ever since I can remember, I knew there was something different about me that made me a loner at times. I can recall vividly playing alone, or with my cousin in the cellar of my grandfather's large house. To us it was like a wonderland full of possessions collected over the years where we were talking a man who had served in the Battle of the Somme.
To my cousin and myself the cellar was a place where we used to try and contact the spirit world. At such a young age I knew that death was not the final curtain and that we just moved on to somewhere where we could not be seen. I remember sitting in front of a mirror with a candle and calling out, did I really think it would work? Well the answer was yes at the time. We used to hear, feel and even see things come off the walls, which used to frighten but allure me. Sometimes if I was alone in my grandfather's house I would hear footsteps coming up the stairs from the cellar to the kitchen. I would rush over and open the door but no one was there.
I really did not think too much about this until years later after my grandmother's death. I was too young to go to the funeral but a few weeks later, I was in the garden with my cousin and some friends, I looked up at the kitchen and saw my grandmother looking at me with a serene smile on her face as if to say " I’m out of pain now ", as she was ill leading up to her death. I told my parents about this experience and it was my mother that believed in me, (she since has had a few experiences in my family home). This leads me on to the start of a journey that I am still walking, but not alone anymore.
