I have had many experiences with the paranormal. I have lived in houses that had spirits and have been able to see spirits since I was very young. It was only recently that I found out that I am what is called a sensitive. A lot of the experiences I have have not all been very nice ones. But the story I am going to tell now was a very nice one, it happened to my mother who has never been a believer in the paranormal, especially when it comes to loved ones who have passed on.
My sister Teena passed away on Mother's day of this year, May 13 , 2007. On june 26, my mother was scheduled for surgery on her heart and since we live 65 miles away from the Heart Hospital where the surgery was to be done, we decided it would be easier for she and I to stay the night before in a motel near the hospital, because she had to check in at 7:00 am the morning of the surgery. The next morning, my mother told me that the night before she had felt someone lie down on the bed next to her and snuggle up close. She thought it was me until whoever it was got up and left the bed. Mom looked over and saw that I was asleep and knew it wasn't me. She drifted off to sleep and again she felt someone lie down next to her, only this time they not only snuggled up against her, but they also put their arm around her and laid there until she went to sleep again. As she told me of her experience, I knew that there is only one person who would have come to her before she was due to have a major surgery and that was Teena, my older sister.
Even though she is no longer with us physically, she came to comfort our mother as she had so many times before. This experience has helped my mom to see that no matter which realm we are in, we can and do still come back to check on our loved ones and to give them comfort or just to let them know we are ok.
I love this story, and hope that it's true what you've said about no mather what realm we are in, we can still seek out our beloved.
