I would really appreciate opinions from readers. I don't know how to personally interpret this experience. All I know is that it was wonderful and left me teary-eyed.
When I recently joined YGS my intention was to relate my paranormal experiences as they happened from childhood onward but I am moving ahead with this one as I found it absolutely intriguing and still often reflect on it, wondering what it could have been.
Strangely enough, I only see "things" when my husband is away, which happens occasionally when he has to go to various cities or towns. He presents training workshops which do not always take place at the city we live in, or locations nearby, so at times he is away from home for a few days. I do however hear and feel things even when he is in the house. I use the word "things" simply because I cannot think of a better word for it - no slight intended towards the ghosties!
As usual I fell asleep with the TV on in the bedroom. This always happens as when my husband comes to bed he switches it off. I am a typical early to bed, early to rise type of person. (Wouldn't it be great if healthy, wealthy and wise applied?!) My husband is the exact opposite. This event occurred the first night he was away on one of his business trips and of course I did not switch the TV off.
In the early morning hours the light and flashes from the TV were becoming really irritating, although I had turned down the sound. I am not happy sleeping alone at home and having the TV on is a comfort to me - not that it would save me in any way from a break-in etc but it helps psychologically. Also, I keep the kitchen and lounge lights on, plus the TV in the lounge, when I am alone. Perhaps silly but it works for me.
Now to the nub of what I consider to be my most heart-warming, touching experience. It was still rather dark outside but I could hear birds beginning to chirp and decided to switch the TV off. I sat up in bed and reached for the remote. Imagine my surprise when I saw a dog sitting inside my room, on the right side of the door, staring at the TV. It looked like a Spaniel but was far bigger than a Spaniel. I later realised that it could possibly have been a Retriever breed. Also, it seemed to be just under the door handle, which means that it could not have been sitting on the floor. I was totally astounded by this and, believe me, I was totally awake. I saw no colour on this dog. Although it was very clear, it did not appear in any specific colour, i.e. Golden-brown which it would probably have been.
The dog was only the beginning of this sight. Still entranced by this I looked at the entrance of the door itself. There appeared, in solid form, a little boy which I would place at the age of approximately three years old. (I say approximately three years because he no longer had his "baby legs". I think other mothers could relate to that, I hated it when my kids lost their baby legs!) - He was wearing a light T-shirt, possibly white, and old-fashioned underpants. When I say old-fashioned underpants I mean those that were worn by kids in and before the sixties. My eldest son was born in 1975 and I could not have bought underpants like that for him even if I wanted to. This little apparition was the most beautiful child! He had blond hair. I do not know for certain the colour of his eyes but they seemed to be blue. He had this little smile and emanated all the beauty of a truly wonderful being. I simply could not take my eyes off of him! I also have doubts whether this child was standing flat on the floor. His feet seemed to be pointed downward, i.e. Possibly standing on his toes or just above the floor line.
The little boy then turned around and disappeared from my sight. I was not prepared to leave it at that. I had to have proof of what I had seen and said out aloud: "Please let me see you again, just for a second." I was so ecstatic when suddenly he appeared in the doorway again. I felt such love towards this child, not the love I feel for my own children but on a totally different level.
I wanted to interact with this little boy. I asked him to come to me and to talk to me. I so badly wanted more of him! He did not do that and simply turned around, went on his way and that was the end of it.
I have to admit that after seeing the child I no longer concentrated on the dog. I did not see when it disappeared from view. The entire incident could not have lasted longer than a minute or so but it is quite surprising what you can experience in that short space of time.
I got out of bed, it was approximately 04:30 (morning), made tea and just lived through that experience in my mind again and again. As I said I was teary-eyed. I so desperately wanted that little boy to sit on my bed and talk to me!
Please readers let me know what you think. Were these two entities guardians, spirits or merely ghosts? I personally do not believe they were ghosts because of the emotions that I felt. I have experienced ghosts in my past but have never, ever, been moved to tears by them. Here I am talking tears of happiness and almost exultation!
Would love to hear from anyone who can assist on this.
Tubby legs - yes, that sounds about right 😊
