A friend from college recently passed. I'm a relatively young guy mid-30s and haven't really experienced a loss like this before. This was someone who I hung out with pretty consistently at one point in my life, so it hit me more than I thought.
These days there are a lot of new ways to remember someone in the age of social media. It's so new for this generation so the rules aren't properly defined. Could be a photo posted, could be a quick story on someone's facebook page or it could be something as simple as responding to a shared RIP notice.
As is custom these days, I decided to post a tribute on Facebook and Instagram for him. I found an old photo of us and wrote something nice about him and about the activities we used to do together. But just as I was about to doze off thinking of something else, I heard my deceased friend's voice, saying my name, clear as a bell in my head. Didn't sound like it was in the room, just in my head. He said my name matter of factly, no tone or emotion that I could detect. And that was it.
I shot up like a bolt in bed. Looked around and nothing physically looked off, so I went back to sleep and this time dozed off.
He never had physically been to my house and besides talking on facebook I hadn't seen him in 6 years. But I do think it was him. I think it was him in spirit coming to say a quick goodbye and acknowledge that he'd seen my posts and got the message. What do you guys think? Has anyone ever experienced a spirit/ghost responding to something that was posted about them? Would this be possible?
