Hi again! I've been lucky enough to have some really friendly experiences with spirits, one in particular, Uncle Rocky. I'd like to share some more with you. There are some incidents that may be explained away, except I was there and things just didn't seem to jibe.
In early July, 2006, we had a lovely, breezy day. I noticed my large wind-chime wasn't playing its usual windsong for me. I noticed but thought it must have been tangled. A short time later, I realized that it was chiming away like crazy. I'm not single minded, I'm aware that it really might have been tangled, maybe there was nothing supernatural about it. It seemed worth mentioning because there are so many odd things happening on a regular basis. Almost too coincidental.
Another such event happened not too long after. I have 2 crystal sun-catchers stuck on the small windows of my front door. The door is never used and so always closed. It is off in the very corner of the living room with no source of air flow around it. As I was watching T.V., the rainbow of the sun through the crystals was lazily rolling back and forth on the wall. It caught my eye and I watched for a few minutes until some silly thing on T.V. got my attention and I looked away. When I did look back at them they were perfectly still, then I realized that they should have been still all along since there was no source of air flow at all. I kept one eye on them the rest of that day and on and off since and have never seen the swaying rainbows on the wall since that time. This could be explained, I suppose, but I can't see how because the air doesn't circulate in that corner.
In late August or early September, 2006, (school was still out for summer vacation), my oldest son saw a reflection in the patio door of (what he thought was) his Dad sitting in the rocking chair on the back deck. He went over to the door to speak to him but when he looked out there was no one there. My son hadn't realized that his Dad wasn't even home at the time.
Things seemed to quiet down for a while, or at least we didn't notice anything unusual happening. Then on June 5, 2007, it was floor washing day. It was really windy that day and I figured that with the patio door open, the floors would dry in no time. Once they were dry, I wanted to close the door part way because the wind was so strong coming through that it was causing the plants to bend and whip around. I was afraid they would break off. I put a shoe behind the door to hold it closed part way but the wind was so strong that before I even got out of the room, the door had blown all the way open again. I had a few choice words and thought I'd have to go and shut the door all the way because the wind was just too strong. Just as I started walking back to shut it, the door slammed shut really hard. This I can't explain at all because the wind was blowing directly in the door. I guess Rocky was trying to save me the trip across the room.
My experiences aren't frightening, dramatic or prophetic in any way, I think Rocky just wants us to know he's still around. We think of him and speak of him often, he's in our minds a lot. We're not mourning his loss any more, we just remember him fondly and are happy for the time we had with him. I feel that as long as this is the case, he'll be around us until he decides he's had enough. I find it a comfort that he's keeping us company.
There are more stories to tell and when time permits and the mood strikes, I'll send some more for you to read and hopefully enjoy.
Thanks to all for taking the time to read about my experiences.
