I have this cross necklace that I wore since my high school days. I started wearing this necklace when something happened to me every night at exactly 3am where I will wake up for no particular reason at all and I get a kind of feeling of being watched. It happened for 3 consecutive days and on the third day I had a very bad dream. It was about Jesus Christ but his face changed into something sinister and scary. That got me scared so much I couldn't sleep well for days.
To tell you the truth, those experiences may or may not be related when my friends and I practiced witchcraft at a nearby sea shore. We have this public place with hotel and restaurant place that is near the sea and some parts of it are somewhat covered with tall grass and trees away from the main hotel itself. This is in the Philippines.
Now ever since that time we played around about witchcraft, I had these feeling of overwhelming negative energy all the time around me. I am sensitive to energies especially emotions and just the feeling of it. So that's the reason I got this cross necklace which was blessed and given to me by a friend.
This cross necklace of mine is weird but it did help me feel secured and protected somehow. I have this mantra or I keep praying inside my mind that this cross necklace will stay with me to protect me from something bad always but if ever I am not worthy of it, like if I did something horrible I will lose this necklace.
I don't know if that mindset of mine made a difference but for the next few years I noticed that if I lose that necklace somewhere it will always come back to me. For example:
One time I was driving my mom off to her work to the hospital back in Maryland. I knew something was off because I immediately noticed I wasn't wearing my cross necklace. I really thought I misplaced it somewhere. So when I got back to the house I checked my room, my bed, everywhere, nothing. I went outside in our yard just in case maybe it fell on our front lawn but nothing. I gave up and went back to my room and I was shocked the cross necklace was there on top of my pillow, laying flat in the middle of it like it was neatly placed for it to be noticed. I didn't mind on how bizarre that is but I am happy I got my cross necklace back.
Another time I felt the cross necklace fell on our front lawn. It slid down on my chest into the grass, it did really happen so I bent down and looked for it. You would think that you will find it fast because you knew where it fell but nope, I searched and searched all over the lawn and even back track my steps just to make sure and I didn't find it. It was so weird and frustrating because I could've sworn it fell on the spot where I was standing on that lawn. I was disappointed to not find it but determined to look for it no matter what. It took me about 20-30 minutes searching all over the grass when I decided to back to the house and to my room to get away from the scorching heat of the sun when I saw my cross necklace placed on top of my pillow, exactly like the last time I found it when it got lost. That was weird but I was just happy I found it again.
Now this next thing that happened is the weirdest of all. This cross necklace I gave it to my boyfriend back then and now my husband back in 2013. I gave it to him because I knew that cross necklace was special and deep in my heart and mind it really is magical. I prayed to God that my boyfriend then will always be protected from harm as long as he has that cross necklace with him. I did made a vow that I will only give that necklace to someone special that I know I will spend my whole life with forever.
Not to make it cheesy and all so he has this necklace. I was in Maryland that time, I was either using skype or some app that I can talk to him that time. I told him that there is a typhoon coming that will hit our hometown (which means where he lives that time) in the Philippines. He said yes he knows about it and they are staying in and not evacuating as opposed to what the officials had urged the people on their place. My husband's house is situated near the sea. So in about an hour when the super typhoon struck our hometown I lost connection to him, I couldn't contact him, nothing at all. 24 hours passed I got very worried. I remember I was on the computer all the time monitoring the news about the typhoon and our place. There was this one news televised right after the typhoon aftermath and I distinctly remember it was already early morning around 5am on Maryland when the first news was able to air. I was shocked that the devastation was so severe they didn't anticipated the storm surge that washed away our hometown. Thousands died and the place where my husband lives was hit the hardest because he lives near the sea.
I remembered I cried and I told my mom I'm going home to the Philippines. There were lots of bodies that are not recovered and although my chances are slim I prayed to God that he was ok and his family are ok. I remember we went to church first before my flight back to the Philippines and I prayed hard that everyone I knew and love is ok.
Now right about before my flight I received a sms message from one of my close friends in the Philippines that was somewhat connected to my husbands family. She said everyone was fine and alright. If only I can describe the feelings I had that time. I was shocked, happy, and grateful to God.
Apparently they did stay in their house but they were able to survive the 6-7 feet storm surge when they went to the roof. What was sad was the ones who went to the evacuation centers especially on the ground level died but my husband's family survived by staying on their house. If they went to the evacuation center, something different might have happened.
The cross necklace was with my husband but he said it fell into the waters. I was just glad he was ok. Fast forward to a month when I was in the Philippines with my husband's family in the Northern part. We were swimming on the swimming pool and guess what, we found the necklace on the bottom of the swimming pool. The brother of my husband said he saw it and looked familiar as it was what my husband's necklace during the typhoon. How weird that we found the same cross necklace a thousand miles from where it got lost on the waters and debris during the typhoon and now in the swimming pool.
My husband returned back the necklace to me when we got married 2014 in Baltimore. We moved to Texas 5 years ago and when I was stepping out from my work, I felt it fall down my chest and on the parking lot. I searched and looked for it until I gave up. Until now that necklace is still missing and I haven't seen it ever again. Something I remembered though about my necklace is that I once said that if ever I did something bad I will lose that necklace. I don't know if I did something really horrible but I just feel and hope that maybe it will show up for me like last time.
Thank you for reading my long post but I just wanted to share something that is so special to me.
