My First Spirit Seeing

 

My name is Heather, I am home-schooled with my aunt and one day I was working on my homework and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a white figure pass by the doorway. In 2007 my older brother died in a car accident and in May it will be 4 years and I think it was him.

Today, I saw another white figure when I was doing the dishes. I looked it up the night and it said it could be diabetes but then it said it could be a spirit so I hope it is. I want my brother to talk to me soon, because I miss him like crazy.

I have currently moved into the same house he lived when he died, and that is where I saw the second figure. I want to know what I should do. How can I talk to him? How do I know if it is him?

My brother was a fire-fighter and a great older brother. He had his accident on May 9th, it was so bad that on May 12 we had to pull the plug, and it was 19 days away from his 21 birthday.

I am an artist in progress and a poem writer. I mostly write poems about my brother and what he did and how he changed my life.

One night I was lying in my bed, looking out the window when someone or something whispered in my ear I didn't understand what he said, as soon as it said it I looked and nothing was there. I told my sister the next day when I got to her house to babysit and she said it was probably William telling me to go to sleep, and that she has had the same thing happen to her, except it was a black figure.

Comment and tell me what I should do!

Thank you,
Javelina, I am sorry about the loss of your brother and sister, I do sometimes try and keep the feelings out when I am at church and I hear something that reminds me of him, and when I give him notes in a jar on his tombstone, sometimes on 5th sunday when someone is preaching I will look at my mom and she will be crying, and I can't help but cry too... One night when I was leaving the hospital with my cosin and her husbend he told me that when ever I needed to cry to find him and we would go cry somewere... I always tell my friends when they lose someone that I will be there for them and they are their for me... I talked my friend out of killing himself because he lost his bestfriend/granny, that month was a bad month for him, but I kept him through it... If my brother would not of died I wouldn't be who I am today, he made me the better person... Along the way to where I am now, I have had bad times and good times... I almost hurt a girl for telling me that I should go to Hell with my brother, (she lost her mother the year before) then I said something about her mother, I was mad, ready to runaway, and ready to kick her butt, My mom took her side on the fight so it felt like I was on my own when it came to my brother/her son, I didn't get it... I want to think everyone for talking to me, I have really needed someone to talk to lately! 😊 ❤ 😊

I agree with Granny. Grief isn't one size fits all, it's different for everyone, and sometimes we need a little help to get through it. Grief counseling sounds like a very good idea, especially since you lost your brother suddenly. The only close relative I've ever lost, I lost to cancer. I knew what was going to happen, I had time to prepare myself for it, and oddly enough I had finished grieving before he even died. And let me tell you, sometimes the healing our hearts need come from the most unlikely sources.
I won't lie, the lonely will always be there. But, you are well on your way to healing when the memories bring smiles instead of tears. That day will come.
Blessings ❤

Heather: We all handle grief in stages... Some people go through the stages quickly, some gradually, and some get stuck in one stage or another...It's when you get stuck that you need the help of someone outside of the situation... My advice is to talk to your parents, and see if they are willing to get you some grief counseling... It couldn't hurt... ❤

Heather,
I wish I could say it's going to get easier, but I can't. The pain of your loss is always going to be with you but in time you just learn to live with it. That may not sound very encouraging but I'm not here to tell lies. I lost a brother and a sister so I know where you are in that regard. Anytime I start to feeling down about missing them I just let it come, you can't lock it away for another day, it just doesn't work like that. It's healthy to grieve for our loved ones, there's nothing wrong with that at all. It's the ones that hold it all in that end up with the problems. There's nothing wrong with you for feeling like you want to communicate with him, and you can. You talk all you want because he can hear you, you can write it down and he'll read it, it's up to you how you want to do it. But our family and loved ones know what we're saying when we communicate our feelings. I know this as well as I know my own name, there is no questioning it in my mind. So you have faith kiddo, and sometime, when you least expect it, you'll get your answer, you'll see.
❤ ❤ ❤

I am very glad to see how many people understand what I am going through, I wish everyone else did. After my brother died I could feel him everywhere I went but now its like a brick wall is around me, and all I feel is anger, its like after he left I didn't relize he wasn't going to be there anymore, and when I finily got to that point were I relized he wasn't coming back, I snaped... I am angree, sad, don't know if life will begin for me, it stoped when he stoped breathing... Now I just want it to start again 😭. I talked to my sister me and her are closer then ever before, she understands what I am going through and that life isn't going my way... So thinks for commenting ❤ 😊

Heather,
Your story is great! I wish you luck in that the ghost is your brother. If so, you are very fortunate to have him still watching over you. He must've been a really good brother. 😊

Nice catch taz890,
Heather, don't listen to the oiuja board suggestions, you'll only be bringing trouble. Sometimes people think they mean well, and other times they just don't think. I say this time they aren't thinking at all. You just hang in there girl, everyone here is pulling for you and sending their prayers, love, and good vibes your way. If you're having a rough night you just come back here and read through these comments. Draw your strength where you can, take some deep cleansing breaths, sit up straight and tall, and you carry that pride and love for your brother like a crown. Let it shine in everything you do and everyone you meet. He deserves nothing less.
❤ ❤ ❤

had to comment here again concerning the advice from jess55.
I would not reccomend you use a ouija board at all there are plenty of posts on here about the board and none good, some people say they can use them and only have good experiances with them but personaly EVERYONE I have spoken to that has used one will have a bad story to tell.
When its back on I will post the story I have about the boards hopefully it will put you off the idea for life please please stay away from ouija boards.

A million times I've needed you,
A million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
No one can ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
A part of me went with you,
The day God called you home.

Lou

When he is around you will know. You'll get a gut feeling as if someone you know is nearby. If it's white it usually means it's a good spirit. Trust me I know these things.

Heather I just want to tell you that you need to be careful. Sometimes when you are looking this hard for your loved ones you can open a portal and let something evil in and it can destroy what you know. I just want to tell you to be safe. But if this is your brother then embrace it while you can:)

Heather: I have to agree with my Loonie friends... My daughter's father visits me in dreams when something is about to occur that will have an impact in her life...But, prior to those dreams, the dreams I had of him consisted of him pushing me away, or asking me to let him go... I was able to do so, and now he visits my daughter and grand-daughters...He even showed up at the hospital when Emily was born...I'm sure he'll be there for the next baby's birth, due in September! 😆...

And Taz makes good points because I believe "The signs are there, if we pay attention"...A song, a saying, a scent...You'll know...

My point is this: he needs to make the last leg of his journey, so that he can have the ability to visit you when he thinks it's necessary... I suggest you write a final "good-bye" poem for him...That's what I did (I write poetry as well)...I cry every time I read it...It's hard to let go of those we love... As long as the love is there, so are they... ❤

Heather911,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother, and he was so young. The grief your experiencing just breaks my heart. And I'll bet you're tired of people telling you that "You need closure". I understand that one loud and clear.
All the comments before mine are giving you very good advice, it's a hard reality you're dealing with and it's never an easy process. Your desire to communicate with your brother is a natural response, most of us wish we had the chance to say one more thing to a loved one who's passed. You're no different than anyone else in that respect.
BUT, taz890 is right. Don't wait, say what you want to say, he'll hear you. Me? I write it down in a letter and seal it. I get those thoughts and memories we shared onto paper and it it becomes part of our family history. I don't throw them away, someday, after I'm gone, they might be of interest to a future family member. All I know is that it helps me to get it into words, it's my release.
You may never hear his voice or see his image before you, it doesn't always work that way. But there are little signs that may show up, and when they do you will cherrish that forever. If you think back, who knows, they may have shown up in other ways, in the little things that happen every day, sometimes we just don't realize it until later that we have been contacted, and that's ok too.
❤ ❤ ❤

hi there heather firstly I am sorry for your loss.
Now if you want to talk to your brother then do it don't wait to see the white figure again just talk to him but don't pin your hopes on this figure being him but where ever he is he will hear you, you might not get a reply in words but a song he liked might play on the radio, you might smell something that reminds you of him and that will be his message to you so you know he heard you.
Does anyone else live with you? Has enyone else seen this figure? And agree with badjuujuu get a check up soon.
Please keep us posted on this

Heather911 - I have to say I agree with both BadJuuJuu and Devious. Most of the time our love and grief will create what our minds want us to see. However, if this is indeed your brother, you may be causing him to linger when he should have crossed over.

What I mean is, because of the love you have for your brother and the obvious want you have to communicate with him, he may not be able to continue on with his journey.

There is nothing wrong with missing your brother and wanting him to be with you, but you shouldn't hold him here. He needs to cross over. His love will always be with you.

I have to second BadJuuJuu in that you missing your brother is likely manifesting itself in these experiences you've been having. I would like to say that I'm very sorry for your loss. It's tragic to have lost someone you loved, especially because he was so young.

I'm concerned that you said your sister saw a black figure that she thought was your brother too. Always be cautious of spirits that appear to be your loved ones. There are trickster-type spirits, some call them demons, that will use your grief and desire to see your loved ones again to create a figure that you will trust and communicate with.

Your brother sounds like he was a truly wonderful person, so I think you should be hoping more that he has moved on and isn't still hanging around haunting your home.

Firstly, I'm very sorry for your loss.
Secondly, go to the doctor and get tested for diabetes. If you are displaying symptoms get it checked, just in case. Diabetes is nothing to ignore, and it's better safe than sorry.
I don't mean to be insensitive, and I hope I don't sound it, but I'm not sure what you are experiencing is paranormal. I think you may just be externalizing your grief. Your loneliness for your brother may be sort of tricking your mind into making more of these events than there are. What I'm trying to say is that you want so badly to see your brother again that your mind is trying to convince you that you are. I hope that made some sense.
