The House of Spirits

It was nearly eight years ago when we started looking for a house to buy. He and I decided to look at the local listings separately and whatever house we both liked with our separate searches, we would go and look at them.

Oddly, with he and I both separately looking (did not know each other’s choice), we were drawn to the same exact house. Was this particular location, with a house not even twenty years old at the time, calling out to us? Maybe, but whatever it was, we knew we had to check it out.

The land, being barely an acre, was covered by lots of big trees. This 1200 square foot house sat off the road a bit. With its four white columns in the front, the one story brick structure had a certain comforting charm about it. Huge windows that allow in all the beautiful sunshine….. Love!!

We scheduled a viewing appointment with the realtor, who ended up becoming a very dear friend…. actually, more like a family member now. (Southern charm and etiquette have their ways of bringing people closer together.)

The day was a Monday, just after Thanksgiving, when we drove out to the house. As we were nearing the property, barely entering the driveway, we began to feel an energy coming from this place. It was so inviting, which made us want to see it even more. There was a “presence” we couldn’t explain. Our younger son was with us, and he was just as eager as we were.

As we approached the house, the realtor standing there with his warm smile, welcomed us inside. Like I mentioned, the house is barely 1200 square feet so it didn’t take long to view it. The open floorplan has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The stained glass lighting fixtures in the kitchen made me squeal like a little girl because I immediately fell in love with them. That made the guys laugh at me. I told them it was a “girl thing”. Lol

The location is right outside city limits, yet close enough to everywhere and only nine miles from the beach! It’s quiet and the neighbors are awesome.

After purchasing the home, we had to do several things… paint the interior, fill in places in the sheetrock where previous residents had hung photos and other decorations on the walls… those types of things. As we did these, we could feel the presence of something otherworldly, like being observed. And occasionally, hearing and seeing things. Like one time, I was walking into the master bathroom and to my right, just in my ear (and I was home alone), I heard a male’s voice faintly say, “Hey”. I turned my head and couldn’t find anyone. Other times, shadows seen out of the corners of our eyes. A strong female presence has been felt many times, an older lady who seems to be the observer, in my opinion. And a few times recently, I have seen a man wearing a light blue checkered shirt also observing me.

However as crazy as all this sounds, nothing malevolent has ever been felt. We have paranormal investigative equipment and have conducted some sessions to communicate. Our findings have proven conclusive. We feel that our home is a transient spot for spirits to come and go. I believe our dog has even picked up on things as well because he has made certain gestures that have validated our belief. And being a psychic and Empath, I can’t discount what I “feel” and “know”.

Here are some photos of our home.

Interview with Psychic Sirena

Today I’m welcoming astrologer and ghost hunter, Psychic Sirena. Thank you, Sirena for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a second generation Los Angeles native. My friends would describe me as kind-hearted, compassionate and loyal to a fault. Besides reading Tarot, I’m involved in animal rescue and I have 4 cats of my own. I love all animals but cats are near and dear to my heart.

 

 

At what age did you become aware of your abilities?

I was a small child – can’t really remember the exact age but probably around 4 or 5 years old. I saw a man all in red – even his skin – and he was carrying a mailbag. I asked my mom who that was and she didn’t see what I saw. Many years later I realized it was probably Mercury who is the god of communication, hence the mailbag. As I grew older, I was always aware that there was someone with me, sort of like an imaginary friend, if you will. This person is still with me and it is my Spirit Guide.

 

 

What does it mean to be clairaudient and clairvoyant?

Clair-audient means you can hear sounds or messages from the Spirit world. That is how I do my Tarot card readings. I hear messages from my angels and guides as well as the angels and guides of the person I am reading for. Clairvoyant is described in the dictionary as someone who has the ability to see the future. That is true but it also means you can see a vision or picture in your mind. When I am doing a reading for someone I can sometimes see actual visions of what they are asking about. If it’s about a person, it’s not always clear, but I can see an outline of someone and it usually appears to me like one of those color sketches you can get at Disneyland. Other times, I will see something about my own life that will give me a reference as to what the message is I’m supposed to be giving. For instance, if I see a hummingbird that is my symbol for a grandmother. I’m also clairsentient meaning I can feel certain things such as hot, cold, pain, sadness. And I’m claircognizant meaning there are certain things I know but can’t explain. I’m very good at predicting the sex of a baby and when it will be born as well as when people will pass away. I will tell people about babies if they directly ask but not about leaving the physical world. That is about your own life path and not for me to say.

 

 

You’re also into ghost hunting. What kind of paranormal experiences have you encountered?

I can’t see spirits but I can sense them. I’ve seen spirits twice in my life and both times it scared the BeJesus out of me so I think they know not to reveal themselves to me if they want to communicate with me. This is one of the reasons why I don’t like hospitals. I can sense their energy and they all try to talk to me. My grandmother used to communicate with me by flashing the lamp on and off. I went thru tons of light bulbs during that period. People used to tell me there was something wrong with the light socket but after I told her to stop communicating with me in that way, the lamp stopped flickering. I’ve also had my TV go off for no reason and one time I got into my car and the radio was on. I had not put the key in the ignition yet.

 

 

Do you incorporate your psychic abilities into conducting paranormal investigations? If so, how do you protect yourself from anything negative?  

Yes, I do use my psychic abilities in order to communicate with the people who have passed on. I can hear them talk to me even when I’m not always able to sense them. I ground myself by protecting with white light and asking Arch Angel Michael to be with me. Afterwards, I will smudge with a sage stick so I don’t bring anything home. The end of the Haunted Mansion where you might pick up a hitchhiking ghost is a very real possibility if you don’t ground and protect.

 

 

Your website is Tarot By Sirena: http://www.tarotbysirena.com/. Tell us about it.

Besides purchasing a reading, you can purchase your astrology chart. But what’s really popular is the synergy – or compatibility chart – because ladies always want to know what they can expect with their partner whether it be a new lover or someone they have been with for awhile. Astrology charts are also great for kids and I have given them as gifts when someone has a baby.

 

 

Tell us about your tarot reading services and how people can contact you for their very own session.

My readings are done via email, Skype, FaceTime, phone or in-person. People can book a session on my website as there is a drop-down menu where they can purchase the reading that best fits their needs.

 

 

What’s next for Sirena?

I am researching a book that I hope to have written by early next year.

 

 

Any words of wisdom you’d like to share?

I’m not sure if this would be considered words of wisdom. My specialty is love and relationships. My grandmother used to tell me, “Es mejor estar solo que mal acompanado, Mija” which means it’s better to be alone than poorly accompanied. Life is too short for bad relationships or waiting around for someone to make up their minds if they want to be with you. I have taken that advice to heart and although it has been lonely at times, I sleep more peacefully.
