Real Ghost Stories

The White People

 

So much has happened since I posted my last few stories. If you haven't read them, it would be a good idea in order to be up to speed on this particular story. My daughter Novalee is now 3 years old, and she's a typical preschooler... If you count talking to dead people as being typical.

Since Novalee has never had a father figure in her life, up until recently, I could see how she would be confused as to what exactly a daddy is. She attended preschool at a private Catholic elementary school for the 2010-2011 school year. Since she was in the 2's group, I attended school with her for 90 minutes once a week. There were 8 kids total in her class and the majority of them attended with their moms and then there were always a few grandmas.

One particular day, one of Novalee's classmates came with her father. (We'll call her Jane) It was Jane's turn to provide snack and so of course, at snack time, little Jane's father helped pass out snack. I can't remember how the exact conversation went but I said to Novalee, something to the effect of "Jane's daddy brought your favorite juice today." Novalee looked at me a little confused and sort of stared at Jane's father then went on eating her snack.

Later that day, we were at home and she was on the potty (of all places!) and she was being her normal chatterbox self, we were talking about school and what else we were going to do that day etc. When out of the blue she explained to me, "I have a different kind of daddy... I have a white daddy!" To which I replied, "Oh, you mean his skin is white like ours?"...thinking of the recent talk we had about how some people have different skin colors but we're all the same. She answered me, a little hesitant at first, "Noooo, him just a white daddy." I was still confused, trying to figure out just what she meant by that when she finished by saying to me, "Jane's daddy is a regular daddy but my daddy is different...he's a white daddy!" That cleared up any confusion that I might have had about what exactly a white daddy might be.

I later showed her a picture of her daddy that's in heaven and asked her if that is the one she talks to. She thought for a minute and said, "Yes, but him not white right there... Him just white now." I can't wait until she is older and can explain to me what exactly he looks like to her.

Can she see through him? Is there a light around him why he appears white? I still wonder... But white daddy it is and she constantly points out when there are other "White people" in the room. She has also said that some white people scare her but most of the white people are nice. There's never a dull moment when Novalee is around.

Hippychick,
I was reading through the new stories and found something very interesting.
The o/p stated he'd seen a 'white' man wandering around in the backyard that looked just like his Great Grandfather. So I asked him what he meant by 'white'. Was he dressed in white? Glowing? Or white like Caspar? Here is his reply...
"And when I spoke of my Great Grandfather I meant like pure white like Casper"

I thought you'd want to know that.

Jav ❤

Umm, Hippychick?

I don't know if you noticed it yet, but it was a typo.
Really, it was...
Hippychick? Hello?
What's that behind your back there?
And that smile?
What's with the evil smile Hippychick? 😨
And the duct tape?

Jav: Thanks so much, I feel very complimented. She is a pretty smart kid. 😳 Omigosh, don't even remind me about the trip to the everglades... That was scarier than anything paranormal that's ever happened... I can't believe they didn't have those gators fenced! Lol

Peace and Love Brunhilda!

Hippychick,
I love this kid! Picking on mom now? Whether she was prompted or not, she new it was funny before she said it. To me, a sense of humor at such a young age is a sign of intelligence. 😊
You should be counting your lucky stars she didn't use that sense of humor against you when you took her to play with the baby alligators last year! 😆
The fact that she was teasing you at all is what's important. This kid is firing on all cylinders mom. She knows the difference. And for that, you should be so proud.
Good luck keeping up with her because she has only just begun! ❤

Love and hugs Hippychick,
BRUNHILDA

Jav: That's way cool. Maybe that's why when I showed Chris's picture to Novalee, she said he wasn't white right there, but he's white now. Maybe he does look very flesh-like to her only with a whiteish glow. She did something last night that I swear, although I can't prove it, her dad must have put her up to. She was teasing me something terrible... So either she already has a great sense of humor like her dad or her dad was coaching her. Haha I didn't ask. 😆

Aussie: You are too freakin' sweet. ❤ I do my best for my daughter, she's my sunshine. You have some very interesting points there... I think maybe that's why I only dream about Chris and I've caught glimpses of him a few times but never really have had the chance to talk to him other than in my dreams. Novalee doesn't realize spirits are supposed to be scary... But I have said out loud since Chris passed, to him, "Where are you? Wait! Don't answer me, you'll scare me to death!" lol He loved to scare the crap out of me after we would watch a good scary movie. So, even after 4 years... I still tell him not to jump out at me. LOL LOL LOL Because that's exactly what I would expect from him. Haha 😆

Hippychick!
When I said that he had a blue glow/aura, I meant to add that she also saw him as flesh and blood. She said he was just like a person on the street, just brighter, and the blue was around him. Light blue. The white was how he was dressed she thinks.
This has been fun. This whole thread is one of the best we've had in a long time. 😁

Yes Granny, that's what I was eluding to in my previous post... Leslie's account with her Dad was really interesting and very rare perhaps, I believe the way that John came through too her, was in a way that was all his doing... Let me explain, I believe there are at least three ways to channel communication with our dearly beloved... The first one and the most common one is just crossing realms from there's to our's...basically seeing them from our physical and concious state of mind...no2...through our dreams generally in a state of super-consciousness where spirits and our guides can communicate and relay messages and no 3...through, outer source induced astral projection, I believe our loved ones and sometimes Evil foes can manipulate and induce us into a dimension or realm or projected realm where they can perceive that experience as to what ever suits there cause... Now let's not get into that evil b.s...but I have to mention it because I have been induced by one many years ago... The key for me and through Leslie's story, was when she mentioned that time had stood still? Same as my account, time stayed still... Although she felt her visitation from her father was the real deal and she was wide awake (AND IT WAS REAL)... I believe John through the power of God perhaps was able to have his moment with his daughter without Leslie freaking out... Now think about this... Have a look at 90 percent of stories here and most of them refer to feeling frighten even though they were aware it may have been Granddad or Grandma... And even some of the good posters here have rituals to be rid of spirits and in some cases that's fine... But I believe our love one's know we fear the un known and the best way to communicate is either through dreams or the way John did it... We don't seem to be as frighten when its a dream nor are we frighten when we are induced into a dimension in astral travel especially if unaware we are OBE... And I hope one day Nova will have that time with her Dad and when I refer to seeing him in flesh... He will appear just like that... And sorry Hippi chick for going on like a blouse... But some of us take things for granted the way we go through life and having a friend like you, who has probably cried a river in solace but can role her sleeves and get on with life and being both Dad and Mum for Nova... Well let me say people like you are the real hero's in this world... Lol ❤

Oh wow, THANKS to each and EVERY ONE who commented. I checked the comments yesterday and there wasn't any yet. LOL This is going to be a long one... Going in order:

Granny: Yes, Novie is quite the kid. I'm learning to go with the flow and not freak out every time there is a presence in our midst. Oh, and she tells of the ones that bother her... So like I said, there will be more stories to come but maybe some of my own experiences next time hey?

Jav: Now that you pointed that out, It was pretty straight to the point, huh? She also looked at me like I was an idiot while explaining to me. Like, "Derrr duh derrr, mommy!" haha Love and hugs right back atcha Brunhilda!

Miracles: That's interesting about Dalton. Novalee has actually mentioned several different colors so I'm not sure if she's just seeing auras or apparitions or both. She does see black shadow people but, that's a whole 'nother story...haha. But she has mentioned The White People the most. And yes ma'am...I will journal... Why didn't I think of this before? Hahaha Thanks a bunch!

Darkness: Thank you and no, I don't really think I was anything like Novalee. I come from a kind of close minded family where things like that don't exist but from as young as I can remember, there was always a shadowy blob-like thing that would scare the beejesus out of me... I would see it right up until around the time Novalee's daddy passed so I'm thinking that he keeps it away now why I don't see it anymore. My mom always told me that it was just my imagination and my eyes play tricks on me at night when it's dark. But as far as seeing apparations, no, I don't recall ever seeing dead people. LOL

DragonStorm: Thanks, and yes... I will begin journaling as nagged by Miracles... Did I say nag? I meant suggested. LMAO

Aussie: YOU JUST MADE ME CRY! And now I'm mad at you! Haha No, but wow, thanks for that. Sometimes I forget that I miss Novalee's daddy as much as I do. But he hasn't missed a thing when it comes to Novie. And that's been the biggest comfort that I've found along the way. I really hope she doesn't ever lose the ability to see him and spend time with him. But I'm also prepared for the day that him, and the other white people visit less and less... And yeah, that would be amazing if she gets to meet him the way I always knew him... Where he can actually hug her and give her a huge squeeze like I'm sure he's been wanting to do. <sniffle> Thanks again Daz... You big softie!

Morticia & Rook: hahaha Thanks and yeah, yeah, yeah...I'm journaling already! Lol lol lol 😆

Jav: THAT IS AMAZING! Thanks for sharing that. Sometimes I'm bummed that I can't see what Novalee sees just because I'm so curious as to what exactly she does see. But I really appreciate your insight. So maybe it's just their aura she's seeing why spirits sometimes appear in a variety of colors to her? I told her that daddy's white because he's her guardian angel. =) Just so you know brunhilda, you are very much missed also. ❤ And I'm also going to try that angle trick... Sounds like I may be able to peek into Novie's world at times with it.

Granny: I say that all the time about our similarities and I don't think it was an accident that I stumbled upon this site when I was looking for advice on how to handle a toddler that hangs out with spirits. LOL

Cosmo: That really is an interesting concept. I started watching the show Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal and found some really interesting similarities in Novalee's descriptions of how she sees things. There was one episode of an 11 year old girl and a 12 year old boy comparing how they see spirits and astonishingly, Novalee has described spirits in many different forms just as those children did. I believe, but don't quote me on this because it's just an assumption, but I think that Novie might see full bodied solid apparitions, and various colors of auras, shadow people and even darker, scarier forms... I think she's seeing a variety. It depends on the situation as to how well she's willing to describe for me... And I try not to pry too much. I just let her talk and sometimes she doesn't feel like sharing too much other than something/someone scared her... Or played with her toys, whatever the situation is. She's an interesting kid, that's for sure. LOL

Dan_Paranormal: Thank you so much for reading, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

And again to everyone, sorry that this was so long. I just wanted to make sure everyone's comments/questions/suggestions were addressed. Thanks for reading! Peace and Love,

Hippiechick 😳

This is a very lovely story and it made me smile reading it, thank you for sharing it. It'll be interesting to see what Novalee can tell you about this when she gets older. She sounds to be a truly wonderful and gifted child.

Hey hippiechick, Glad to see your back with another post. 😁 Wow! To Echo Darkness, Novalee has a beautiful gift, and she uses it like a pro. She is so aware of differences and how to react to each one she sees. Novalee is one truly amazing child.

I was thinking that maybe she sees all spirits in a "white" based form. You mentioned she said that some of them are good and some of them scare her.
Marjie, Dalton might see them in a different light. As you said he sees them in a dark color or sometimes red. It could be that their gifts vary in ways like size, shape, and color. Either way I find this to be a very interesting concept.

Going in my fav's 😊 ❤

Jav: That's a pretty cool trick with the angles...I'm definately going to give it a try... I think it's instinct to want to look directly toward whatever it is that we sense, only to be disappointed when "nothing" is there 😆...

Aussie: You know, the similarities between Hippiechick/Novie, and me/Leslie are really astonishing... I only wish I'd had Miracles to wag her finger at me while Leslie was growing up!...

DARKNESS: "The Miracles Journal" LOL...That's another entry in the dictionary 😆

Oh yeah, I still catch Tippy and Pepsi sneaking in the back door. Once I actually heard them panting as if they'd just come in from playing out back. That was pretty cool too. But if you notice something out off to the side, just don't turn toward it. It's hard not to just spin around and look, and it takes a little practice to get the right angle. But once you figure it out, it' hella cool!

Jav ❤

[at] Caz,
Of course it was the momma dog. Mpmma dogs always come back. At least they do at my house! I always have two dogs or more, at a time. They need the company of their own kind, just like we do. Plus they pass their training on to each other too. And even though they each have their own personalities, they also share a certain temperament with each generation that passes before them, an ownership of sorts I guess. They each carry themselves as if they are the guardians of the property, going through their daily routine. Who needs time clocks?

About 18 months ago, my dog woke me up to go out at around 3 am. This was unusual, as he only ever asked to go out in the middle of the night if he had an upset tum! I took him downstairs and let him out into the garden and went to look out the window to watch him in case he was unwell! What I saw, astounded me! He was standing in the middle of the lawn, with a 'white' dog bounding playfully around him! My garden is fully enclosed, so no way for a strange dog to get in! I only saw this for a few seconds before the white dog disappeared, but I know it was my dog's mother who had died just a few months before! In life, she was a black dog! I really enjoyed the story about little Novalee's daddy. She sounds like a very sweet little girl, so I'm looking forward to hearing more from her! 😊 I'd like to add, my dog never did go to the loo. I can only assume, he sensed his mother was out there!

DragonStorm80,
Well, I don't know about the kitties. But I have seen my dogs when they stop by. At first it was just out of my main focus area, I'd catch a glimpse of Tippy going past me on her way to get a drink. Then I saw her walk in the back door, I wasn't looking directly at her, and I didn't try. I just tried to keep her image off to the side, the same unfocused side glance I'd seen her from the other times. I didn't turn toward her, I wanted to see how long I could hang on to her image in this manner. She went over to her favorite pillow (all my dogs have pillows) and started to do her fluffing motions with her snout. Pushing the pillow upward to fluff, then paw at it to make a little cubby-hole in the center. Like a nest. She would fluff then paw, over and over until she got it just right, then curl up in the middle and sigh.
I stood next to my desk, frozen in that position for a good 4 or 5 minutes one day. That was the longest time I was able to hold her in my side vision before my eyes would start to sting. It's really cool once you figure out the angles.

Jav 😊

HIPPYCHICK!

I called my daughter after I posted my comment to ask her what she remembers of her father, she saw him after he passed also. She does remember the way she saw him as a child. He had a real light blueish glow around him, but he was mostly white. The blue aura-like glow was the only glow about his image. The white was white, but soft. That's how she explained it to me earlier. I just thought I'd pass that on to you. I'm sure each of them sees their fathers in their own way, but I thought her explanation, now that she's grown, was very interesting.
Love you and miss you so much!

Welcome back...

I beg to differ with a couple of you guys (you know I loves ya... 😉) But little Novalee will never be more eloquent and to the point than she is now, at this age...

I have to stress what Miracles has said... Write it down... Anything she describes will never be more 'simple and to the point' than it is now...

Thanks for sharing this with us. 😁

Respectfully,

Rook
