The Skeleton In The Purple Car


When I was maybe four years old, I was staring out of my family's living room window that led to the street. I don't really know why I was looking out the window but I remember it feeling like I was staring for quite some time. Out of nowhere a skeleton (no not someone dressed as a skeleton) pulled up in front of my house in a light purple car, it looked like an older one but I personally don't know much about cars. The skeleton just sat there and stared at me for little, then drove away. I can faintly remember him waving or saying something but I'm not sure what exactly happened since I was so little. Also I'm not sure it was male or if it was really anything but I just have the feeling. I haven't seen him since and I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar experience.

I know it sounds crazy and the story will probably get shut down since I was so young at the time. But the world is a crazy place so you never know? Anyways I don't know what to say anymore but I need to reach the word minimum. So yeah if anyone has had a skeleton experience similar feel free to respond because I've never heard anyone else have the same story, but I think about it everyday. I don't know why I can't brush it off as a dream, it just seemed so real. I don't know why I can't forget about it either, maybe it means something? I don't know, I don't have any answers whatsoever. My family thinks it's bologna, but I know it's got to be something. Sorry for the run on ending but I needed to get my words in so I could post but yeah, please please please respond if you can relate. It would make me feel a little less crazy.

I can remember seeing some odd things as a very young child that I still can't really make sense of. I know that most kids don't remember much from very early on, but there are a few who do. I still have questions about some things that I remember, and I often wonder if we experienced those events as a way for the other side to let us know that they're around?

Bastet, I've never thought about it that way, but I really like the concept. That actually makes a lot of sense, maybe to prepare you for a future event, which would make sense why it happened when I was so young.

Thank you for sharing - I loved reading this, it is unique! I just shared bit similar experience about Kitten Ghost - a quite absurd one, seemingly doesn't make sense, could not possibly happen. I tend to think that maybe somebody (from the spirit world, or a spiritual guide if you wish) wanted to create experience to shatter your perception of reality, to question what is real (as I felt after the experience of the Kitten Ghost). 🤔
