She Never Left Me


Growing up, I had always been religious and there was no doubt in my mind about Heaven and Hell, demons and angels, and God and the Devil. On the other hand, I was extremely skeptical about spirits, ghosts, and paranormal activity in general. I just couldn't imagine that after people left us here on earth that they could come back to us at times. This belief was about to be seriously tested.

One day my mother informed me that a psychic medium would be at my aunt's house and asked if I would like to go seeing as the year before I had lost my grandfather and great-grandmother just months apart. I figured I would go, but I had reservations because I had heard of a lot of scams involving psychic mediums. This one was different.

He refused to hear anything about our loved ones or who we wanted to contact and we were not permitted to say more than yes or no. We began the session and I waited and waited for someone to show up and just when I was giving up, he said my great grandmother appeared behind me. His physical description of her was perfect, same with her personality and health. He pinpointed the reason she died and certain personality traits were right on the money.

Some things he told me just didn't add up though. I wrote everything he told me down and showed my parents when I got home. The things that didn't add up? They were all TRUE. It just so happened that I didn't know about those things in her life, so how could he have known? Although I did not get to personally see my grandmother as an actual apparition, my belief in spirits is completely solid. Just knowing that she is there is enough. Hopefully one day I will actually witness the woman who practically raised me.

I feel so comforted to know that my grandmother really is still with me no matter where I go or what I do.

Thanks for sharing - that's really amazing - knowing that someone is there - especially a loved one. Have you ever seen/felt, well experienced anything after that, that might confirm she is with you at times?

Story really touched my heart, to be honest made me want to cry. I was really close to my grandmother, she died about 8 years ago, and I find when I am really down, feeling alone, her face appears before me, I sometimes find myself talking to her, I wish she was still here, she was always there for me.

Beatiful story, thank you for shring it with us.

Well there are some mediums who prtend they are sencitives. But the truth is there are some who have great abilities. It is nice to hear that your grandmother is beside you. I agree with you that spirits have the ability to visit. Maybe they just dropp in for a while to see how we are doing. Thanks for sharring. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

I suppose the ones that raised us and have cared for us in real life will always be there in spirit to support and protect us and eventually guide us to the everlasting world when our time comes!

It's such a beautiful thought, isn't it?

Thank you for sharing.
