Greetings dear reader,
For some time now I have been wondering whether or not to add something here. Wondering because I don't have some fab ghost story... Just three experiences that come to mind.
I'll relate them in order of year and they are unrelated.
1991 maybe, lying in bed, with the light on, looking at the ceiling. Rented unit. I distinctly heard footsteps of someone walking briskly across the ceiling. Upon later investigation, the next day, I saw that the ceiling to roof space was about a meter or so in height. The roof itself was clay tiled and angled, and I lived upstairs, there being a ground floor, a first floor, of some dozen units.
There was no possibility of a bodied person walking across, physically impossible, and I was sure of what I heard. There was nothing further to this. It wasn't anyone on the roof, it wasn't that kind of a sound. It was a sound of someone immediately above, on the ceiling walking briskly across.
1992 about, a different location... Tragic death of my sister's friend. I wrote her a song, and had just put down my guitar from playing such for her, when a poster on the wall part-fell, moved. Four blue tac blobs holding the poster up, and suddenly it part-fell on like a 45 degree angle... It had never done that before nor after. Nor have I ever had this happen to other "posters".
My attention spun immediately to this event and no sooner had that happened, than a string on my guitar was plucked. This simply does not just happen. I concluded that the spirit of my sister's friend was present at that time.
2004 a different location... I had this sudden and strong impression of my grandmothers presence. She was easily the kindest person to me from all my relatives and I had not had contact with her for several years. Unfortunate circumstances. Some years later I made contact with her son, my mother's brother, my uncle and he related that my grandmother had died and was prior very concerned for me... That this had occurred in 2004 (I am not absolutely sure though... Although having asked, I have not gotten further details - I am in Australia and these relatives are in Europe).
At the time I thought about writing down the event, but decided against it as there was nothing to be gained. I understand in existence beyond bodily death, and I also understand that one ought to do with living a good life here... Eg being kind to oneself and others.
That my grandmother contacted me did not surprise me, and it must have become obvious that I was unable to respond beyond an acknowledgement of me perceiving her presence.
Other incidents. There have been times in my life when I and others have noted a spiritual interaction regarding me... Something like a guardian angel. Sorry for being vague, but do I share such or not? I may as well just note it here too.
There have been several "freaky interactions", for want of a better description between myself and the other side. I'll just leave it at that, I felt contacted and more, and interacted with (communicated with... "given"). Well it had a positive effect on me. It is difficult to describe and if I were to give details it would all sound too weird, that is for sure, so I will just leave it at that. That existence is real beyond what we experience.
To conclude, this isn't some fab single story but more an account of my life time experiences and my on going experiences.
Other persons have shared and for what it is worth, I submit my story.
I don't know what reader questions would be relevant, as I view the above more of something that just is. Nothing I can research or wish to elaborate on per se. Being "given things" is simply too weird to share. Also such are really close to my heart... Maybe for a chat over a coffee or tea, but not to my mind for online. Thanks for your understanding.
Then there are other "supernatural" experiences, that don't involve spirits, and I understand such is beyond the scope of this site. I'll just add that such are my experience too.
I'd like to conclude with my experience in sum, that the spiritual world is real, very real, and I know this without question.
As to what do I take away from all of this? Well I think we are here to learn, specifically love and forgiveness. My life has been exceedingly difficult and hard, and often times I have felt most sorry for myself... But I am still here.
I think that is all I want to say... Thanks for reading.
