Real Ghost Stories



My Husband sees spirits, he does not like it, but he does see them. This is one significant story for my family. I will cover the story and then the spirit sighting and subsequent communication

My mother was in love with her High School Sweetheart when she was 16 years old. His name was Robert and he had fuzzy orange hair. Robert came from a big family and he had to look after his younger siblings on an almost daily basis. Robert was asthmatic. Anyway, one day Robert was looking after his younger siblings as usual, in a park, when Robert had an Asthma attack. The ambulance was called, and when the ambulance arrived, it was discovered that they did not have enough oxygen, so Robert died at the scene.

My mother found out through a neighbor, and her parents (my grandparents) did not allow her to go to Robert's funeral.

Flash-forward 30 years or so, and my Husband and I were laying in bed (in the dark), when my Husband felt a presence. I should add that for many weeks I had felt a presence, and "heard" voices claiming that the spirit was Robert. I told my Husband about this. My Husband (in bed) tried to focus on what he was seeing and hearing. Suddenly, my Husband went completely still, and 'Robert' appeared. Robert had 'borrowed' my Husband's body to give me a message. This was the message, "You look just like her. You're Brenda's daughter?" in which I answered "Yes". Robert carried on talking, "Tell Brenda that I'll be waiting for her".

I told my mother the next day and she cried. Robert was and still is the love of her life.

This was a sweet story and, like everyone else has said before me, your husband has an awesome gift. It was very good of him to let Robert come through like that, he got his message through and your telling of it does give others hope. Thank you for sharing.

I can't help but wonder why, some spirits appear in such graphic ways, to those who can see them. I always thought that was Hollywoods version of that sense of seeing them... (6th Sense) but I have heard others speak of viewing spirits in similiar, graphic ways... The question is why? So that spirit died in a violent way, why would he/she appear to the living as such?
Anyway, I enjoyed your story very much... It does raise a lot of questions, and very thought provoking.

Cassandra123girl: yes he is scared of seeing spirits, he doesn't like to see spirit because most spirits are too graphic (i.e. Limbs missing, blood dripping from their head, etc).
Everyone else, thanks for all the nice comments. It is an amazing gift, but very unnerving sometimes.

Your story was very comforting to read! I'm sure your mom was very happy to find out that Robert's love continued on after death! Very sweet and filled with hope. Your husband has an awesome gift. I hope he can become more comfortable with it and learn to use it to help others as it seems like he already does.
