It's been around 3 years since I last visited here, but not a lot has happened in the way of ghost encounters for me. I have found in my experience the more you look for them the less likely they are to show themselves.
My grandad died in April and unfortunately for me he has not shown himself, however I am glad of this as in my opinion it means he is at peace. He died in hospital after 2 months of declining in health but my story isn't really about my grandad it's about the two months he was in hospital.
It started off as small things like white feathers appearing in strange places like in my car or at my desk at work. I'm not someone who would normally believe a white feather to mean anything and could simply be that a cushion or pillow needed replacing.
I strongly believe that a robin is my dad watching over me and on the day my grandad went into hospital a robin was sitting on the roof of my car. I originally thought, how lovely he has come to see me but now I feel like he was trying to warn me of what was to come.
I saw the robin a lot over the two months and not the usual spotted in the garden but more up close like on window sills and out walking. Still how just thought how nice it was.
As the two months went on strange things started to happen, I received a card like the ones you'd get with a bunch of flowers. Nothing written on it just a picture of a white feather. Nearly every light bulb in my house needed replacing. 3 chairs broke from around my dining table as soon as anyone sat on them.
But the strangest thing of all was while I was asleep I felt someone grab me and shout as clear as day 'GET UP' startled I grabbed for my partner and he said I was just having a dream but I knew I wasn't so I got up and checked my phone and as I unlocked it my mum started calling me. It was 2am and I knew it was bad news. My grandad had passed away.
Since that moment nothing else has happened but I can't help but feel someone was trying to tell me or warn me or even prepare me for what was going to happen.
Do you think it was a ghost? Or that they can see what's going to happen?
