Do you ever wonder if time matters, or is the same, when we die? Years ago I submitted a story called "My Ghost Who Cussed" and this sparked an interest, for me at least, about the difference between time while we are living versus time after we die. It also created conversation in the comments section about time. When we hear a ghostly voice say only one or two words and then later we hear another word or two, are the words meant to go together? Are they only parts of a sentence or question and we just don't hear the rest?
Before I proceed with my experience, I want to acknowledge I am not using real names in this one. Most of the time I do, but I don't feel I can or should in this case. I know this causes some members to question the validity of a story, but I have never submitted anything that isn't true.
About 4 years ago Bart, someone I've known my entire life, passed away. A few days later I was visited by Bart. Nothing major, he just sat on my bed. There was no concrete evidence it was Bart, but my instinct tells me it was.
A few days after that visit, I was visited again. This time there was no doubt it was Bart and he had a message, "Tell Herb it won't be long." I took this to mean Herb's wife didn't have long. Edith has had major health issues for years. But, because that is such a sensitive topic, I didn't feel as if I could pass that message along.
One day recently I was told Herb is dying. There is no doubt in my mind this is what the message was about: Herb's passing, not Edith's.
The timing between the two messages about Herb is almost exactly 3 years. Maybe time truly is irrelevant once we pass.
