I have been able to "sense" the presence of "spirits" in my childhood. The first that I can remember clearly happened when my grandmother died in 2001. I was the closest to her but I did not get to see her before she died because little children weren't allowed in the ward. She died without seeing me.
That night we went over to her house for the wake. My cousin and I where watching TV when I heard something telling me to look over by her room, and when I did I saw her looking at me and smiling. Then my uncle walked in front of me and she was gone when I could see again.
This experience with my best friend happened last year when she died in a car crash on November 19, 2011. Her name was Jelisa and she was a "gem of a person." When I got the news I was heartbroken. So that same day I asked God if he can give me an answer, if she is in his care, because I'm a Christian. I don't mean it in any way to offend anyone in any way.
She died on a Saturday and her funeral was on the Friday. That night I cried myself to sleep and the next thing I remember is that I was in her funeral, like how it was during the day, and I was crying and then this bright light started to shine on me and I felt peace and warmth and love. I never felt that way before. Then in the light it felt like a voice was talking to me. I was not really hearing a person talk. It was like it was talking but I was not hearing anything. It's hard to describe the feeling. Then the voice said that Jelisa is happy where she is, not to worry about her and to tell her mother and sister the same.
Then I saw Jelisa in her favorite lavender colored dress. She was looking at me and smiling like she always did when she was happy. She looked peaceful and happy and that made me feel better. I told her mom and sister what happened and they started to cry and thank God that she's safe.
Thank you for reading my story, it really did happen to me so you can comment if you wish.
