I previously wrote a story before about my experiences with orbs. I just wanted to find out people's opinions on my latest development, I'm grateful for any input.
I've seen orbs from a young age, everywhere and anywhere and I kind of understand what they are and I'm fine with that. Unfortunately last year in September a beautiful friend of mine of 12 years passed away quite suddenly, even though she had been battling with cancer for nearly 4 years. Don't get me wrong, we knew she was terminal but her condition deteriorated so quickly, her passing in the space of 3 days was an absolute shock.
Now since my friend passed away, my daily experience with orbs has ceased completely. I just don't see them anymore. For the first 3 months I willed for myself to see them, because they have been part of my life for 25ish years. I just wanted to ask if anyone can shed any light on why I don't see them anymore?
I must admit that when my friend passed obviously I was grieving but I did accept that she wasn't here anymore, very quickly. This in itself shocked me, due to my ability to do this. And since September I have seemed to be quite hardened, I could even go to as far as saying heartless towards people I know (I'm actually shocked I have written that but it's true). I used to be an emotional person, sensitive to people's needs and very considerate, but now I feel I have changed. I know people experience grief differently and I have had plenty experiences of bereavement but they never effected me like my friend has. Sorry if I have waffled, I just don't have anyone I can speak to for advice.
I have always been very open minded and have had some, I'd say paranormal experiences. I just wanted to ask people's opinions on what I'm about to write. I have a 3 year old daughter. She is intelligent, good at communicating and is pretty straightforward to be honest; black is black, white is white, she tells me when I have a spot if I have one! I think you get the jist!
Now about a year ago my niece wanted to borrow my hard case suitcase for her overnight school trip. My suitcase is always in my storage cupboard, due to it containing my fake tanning equipment. So when I knew she required it, I emptied the suitcase and gave it to my niece, nothing paranormal in that. When she returned the suitcase I told her to place it in my daughter's playroom, as this is where the storage cupboard is located.
This playroom is just that, my daughter plays in there because this is where the majority of her toys are, plus she is a messy player and I just love closing the door so I don't have to see the mess she has made. I only ever go in there to do my drying, clean and tidy up.
So the suitcase was returned and to be honest it was in the corner of the room for weeks and one day I decided to store my tanning equipment back in it and return to the cupboard. I lifted the suitcase to lay it down so I could unzip it and it didn't feel empty. When I opened it, to my surprise it was full of my daughter's hardback books and some of her toys. This I thought straightaway was odd because the zip around the suitcase is very stiff and only I can just manage it, there is no way my daughter would even have been able to open it. Plus if she had have opened it I'd have heard her, she would have been telling me about the suitcase and she would have played with it for hours (she's like a dog with a bone) and I would have witnessed her playing with it.
Due to there being no way she could have opened the suitcase I have never questioned her about it, also I told her not to touch it, because I didn't want her to sit on it or anything. I did ask my niece if she returned the suitcase empty, she replied that she did. I also asked her if she had played with it with my daughter, she stated no. When I told her and my sister what I found inside it they were very confused and even mentioned how stiff the zip is.
Now this leads me onto "the people". Myself and my daughter live in a ground floor apartment and since she has been old enough to understand, I have explained to her other people live in other apartments, because sometimes we can hear our neighbours. On occasion there has been a noise, sound and she has asked me what it was and I explained it was "the people" neighbours and she has always been happy with my explanations, not worried or scared in anyway.
My daughter always wakes up before me and plays (she is a very early riser, unfortunate for me). A few weeks ago she went into our lounge, then immediately came running back to the bedroom very scared and crying, she literally jumped onto my bed. But at the time she was also pushing a little toy shopping trolley which she launched in front of her and it hit me full in the face. As she was so distressed, I grabbed her and gave her a cuddle.
I spoke to her and let her calm down first before I questioned her, asking her what was wrong. She told me that "the people were in the curtains in the room". I asked her what people, she repeated "the people". I told her there was no one there (I didn't investigate) but she insisted there were and was quite upset for a while.
On an other occasion my sister and niece were visiting. We were sat in the lounge and my daughter decided to take herself into the bedroom. It wasn't long until she came running into the lounge, crying, stating "the people" were there, she has also done this numerous times whilst playing her in playroom. I must say I always dismiss "the people" and inform my daughter there is nothing there.
A couple of weeks after my sister's visit, she actually told me when my daughter ran into the lounge upset, she saw a shadow of a person on the lounge door, which was directly next to me and I didn't see anything. My daughter has said things about "the people" on numerous occasions for a while now but then again she is only 3, nearly 4 years old now. Her distress, upset has never been prolonged and she has never referred to incidents again and I have never questioned her. The only thing I have ever asked her is, is it a boy or a girl and she never answers my question.
The only thing that has made me question "the people" is this incident. My daughter was playing in another room and I was in my bedroom writing my shopping list or something. I was doing this sat at my bedside table and on the floor directly next to it was pieces of my daughter's jigsaw she had been playing with. Whilst I was writing, I heard a little slap sound and felt a sensation on the top of my bare foot and when I looked down, a piece of jigsaw had landed on my foot. For some reason I immediately said out loud, "no" and carried on with my shopping list.
The events that have occurred haven't bothered me, just made me think at the time and I put my daughters behaviour down to her age. Does anyone have any thoughts? Where we live is a new build, built on the land where an old mill was located for at least 80 years maybe more. A neighbour has informed me that our apartments are built on what was the car park.
