I wanted to share several of my strange experiences regarding paranormal activities.
My name is Saska, and I am from Serbia. I am a teacher of Spanish and English languages.
It happened not long ago. My brother passed away at such a young age (38), and my family and I were experiencing immense grief day and night.
Soon after he died my family and I went on a trip to Vrnjacka Banja, where we had a cottage and spent a lot of days together. There is an amusement park and every night my family and I would go there and have some fun like we always used to do, when my brother was there too. My son wanted to play fishing, and it was a kind of game where you need to catch a fish using a toy fishing rod. So, after several tries, he caught one with a number that he had to read and go there to find a group of toys gathered under that number. When he took his number and went to find a section with that particular number (there were many of them) he was a bit disappointed because there were only stuffed toy hearts with some cute messages. He randomly picked one and gave it to me. I read it. It said "For my little chick (baby chicken) ". At that moment I eyed the other messages and there were a lot of them, mainly ordinary "for the best uncle/ mom/ brother in law"... So, I took that one he picked and put it in my bag.
Some days after we went back home to our hometown Uzice, and I took the toy heart and hung it beside the framed photo of my son and his uncle (my brother). Then, it came to me, Aljosa (my brother) was always teasing my son and comparing him to that little smart chick from a cartoon. I thought "Wow, what a coincidence, there were so many toys and numbers, how is possible he got that particular one?" I still wonder if it was a coincidence.
One evening I was working on my computer when I heard my dog barking in the backyard. I went out to see if someone was coming since my dog usually barks for a reason. I tucked my dog, Ana, inside her house but she was still upset and she was squealing as if she had seen something unordinary. The sound she made reminded me of the one she used to emit when my brother took her for long walks. They had their special kind of language.:)
I was pretty surprised looking at her eyes trying to figure out if there was anything present there I couldn't see. As soon as I turned and walked up the stairs towards the entrance door I saw a small blob of light right in front of me on the path. It was a few meters away, and it consisted of bright white light. It was there only for a tiny part of a second and then it disappeared so I supposed I was hallucinating. I rubbed my eyes and the next moment I opened them I saw a flash of white light across a nearby tree. I stopped and rubbed my eyes again, turned around to see if there was anyone or anything right behind with a flashlight or a similar thing that could make that kind of light but there was no one. And it happened the third time, this time it was flashing just like lightning does, right on the facade of the neighbor's house. It was blinking like it wanted to give me a sign. And, by its rising position, I could imagine it went up high. Then, I thought of my dog Ana and her strange behavior and I was in a state of disbelief asking myself "What has just happened?!"
A few days later I had a strange dream where I was looking at a piece of cloth that was moving. I was calling for my mom and telling her "Look, Mom, Aljosa is moving the cloth but we can't see him." It wouldn't be anything strange but only a dream, if the following morning while I was conducting online classes on my computer I hadn't heard the sound of cloth moving. At that time I was engaged with the class materials, waiting for my Chinese student to join the class and I was writing a message to my friend about Aljosa, so I didn't turn my head to see if someone was moving the nearby cloth that was laid over my lamp. But as soon as my class finished, I started asking myself what that was, since the sound was lasting and I was sure my husband and children were sleeping as I work the early hours due to the time difference between Serbia where I live, and China. Exactly when I started questioning the sound I heard I remembered the dream about the moving cloth and was in a state of shock not knowing what to think.
And last, but not least, last night my dog was barking again, and she continued barking all night long. My alarm clock which was set to ring at 6:30 started ringing at 4:55. My brother used to always set his alarm for 6 to 6 or 6 and 6, 5 to 5 or 5 and 5. I woke up, looked at the time and while my dog was still barking asked myself if I was going nuts, I knew what time I set my alarm clock for, how is it possible that it rang at this time, and it never happened before.
Before my brother died, we also had a lot of strange experiences. My dad died two years before my brother and, on certain occasions, we heard doors, my son had nightmares and was screaming and crying in his sleep "No, I don't want to go out!" I heard the movement of the chair in the living room and the TV used to turn on by itself in the middle of the night several times.
Not to mention the flickering light bulbs. It's happened so many times on special days or occasions.
So, after all these things I do not doubt our souls are real, and somehow they can affect our physical world. Are they doing it to try to console us, and tell us they still haven't lost their sense of humor even in those divine conditions, or they are just learning how to interact with us without scaring us too much? I just hope they can guide and protect us in some kind of way. Well, if they can move things, make sounds, and play with lights, then why not believe they are here for a purpose, to help us frame our lives in a better way? I am talking about these higher consciousnesses, not about ghosts. All these events happened in different houses, in different locations, so I don't believe those places are all haunted.
