The Disguise


I am writing another part of my earthly adventures with my brother Chris who passed on January 31, 2006. My stories with him are too many and have been experiences in my life that's for sure. I am just fortunate they are with him and not any other ghosts (except for the antique coat rack)!

Chris knew that I never would go up to see the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario because I get sick and dizzy when going up high elevators so I never went. He would go just about every year on a little trip just to see what kind of flowers they had planted. He would say it looked beautiful and in 2005, before he was diagnosed with cancer, he brought up if I wanted to go and see them. I told him again "no, I don't want to go there. You know I am afraid of heights, so don't ask me again". He said to me, "come on, you will like it". I then told him firmly no. He said to me, "okay. I won't bring it up again and chuckled". My husband had a laugh also.

I have kept a journal of experiences with my brother so this happened October 19, 2006. I went to bed and of course before I went to bed I said my prayers. Does anyone remember the movie The City of Angels? This is what it reminded me of. I can't explain it other than this.

I woke up and was standing on top of a very high building and was looking out to a city. I knew what the CN Tower looked like from pictures and just knew it was Toronto. I said "s - t", I am on top of the CN Tower and just stood there frozen. It was very sunny out and the tulips planted were beautiful, Chris was right. There were big binoculars attached to the rooftop sides so you could look out. I knew exactly where I was, it was weird. People were walking around everywhere.

While peering out from the middle of the roof, (because I was too chicken to look out from the side) somebody came from behind me and said "boo, and hugged me from the back". I turned around and it was Chris with clothes on. He was solid. Chris' ghost I thought. I said "I knew it, I knew it was you". He said, "how did you know and chuckled". "I said who else would be here than you". Chris said to me "now do you know what I was talking about, how do you like the CN Tower?" I told him "it's nice but I will never come back". He had his little laugh and grin-the same as always.

Chris had very dark black shiny glasses over his eyes, his face was his structure except it almost looked like he had material wrapped on it, but you really couldn't tell, only if you were up close to him and he also had a very dark black shininess for his mouth area. I can't explain it but figured it was because he wanted to make the best look for a disguise of his shell and human form. He had a safari hat (khaki) with a rim; he had on a trench coat that was very dark blue with khaki colored pants and deck shoes. He actually looked like a real person and so I kind of think it was a disguise because he wanted to come to earth for one more visit and nobody would notice him because of his clothing. He just blended in with everybody.

We chatted for a long time and he asked how I was doing and everybody else. He was so nice, the same Chris. Then, Chris said to me "Judy, I want you to meet somebody". He put his arm out to gesture that another person was here. I turned around and Chris said "this is a friend of mine, Ron". I said "nice to meet you" and so did Ron to me, we actually shook hands. He was dressed just like Chris.

I thought to myself wow, this is cool. I am up on the CN Tower with Chris and his friend. Since they were both dressed the same and had the same disguises except Ron didn't have a safari hat on, I knew then that Ron was a ghost/spirit also in solid form. Maybe he was his spirit guide? I had no idea this was a dream until I woke up because it felt real. When I woke up in bed, I just sat there. My back was so warm and I could feel a radiating heat on it. It felt good. I knew then that I was with Chris. He had given me a very big hug from behind.

When Chris and I hugged, he was solid like when he lived here. I will never forget this experience. He was walking and talking with me at the CN Tower, his favorite place to visit, like us humans and looked like us. And me, that was my first and last visit to the CN Tower!

I feel that a ghost/spirit can come back to earth any time they feel like, just for one more look or visit. When he showed up with clothing and all, everything about him looked "normal". Nobody would have ever expected that he was a ghost/spirit.

How many more ghosts/spirits are walking on this earth like this? This was so real, that sometimes I find it hard to believe that this can happen.

Your story was sooo touching. I think you would've enjoyed the experiance more if you went with your brother before he moved on. I think the reason he hasn't crossed over was because of you. Very touching!

HI, cool story. Yes I think it was your brother. But I think your brother though you'll like the CN so much that when you dreamed he show you it to you.

Hello everyone. I am grateful I can be a part of the YGS site sharing my stories with all of you.

Frawin: Thank you for your inspiration.

KimSouthO: Thank you Kim for your wonderful comments and your welcome.

Bette31: Hi Bette. No, this story isn't the only dream, there are others. This is the one where he looked like he had a disguise on to blend in with everybody else. But I just can't say if this was a dream or not because of what happened.

JPing: Thank you. I guess I will never know the answer to this one because I felt he was contacting me like this to show me that ghosts/spirits can walk the earth like humans and even blend in nanchalantly as if they were in true form.

DUnknown: Again thank you for your comments. As I said to JPing, I guess I will never know the answer to this story but happy to have shared it for you to read. 😊

Thank you for sharing that wonderful story with us. Who knows if it was only a dream or not? Stranger things have happened! Is that the only dream that you have about your brother since he passed?

Beautiful story. Perhaps your brother was contacting you from beyond the grave or perhaps it was just a dream. Either way, thanks for sharing.

Well, we will never know this if it's fact or fiction since movies only portrays situations like this but not in real life. Hence, it will be a wonderful discovery if this really do exist. One more thing, this kind of idea "sometimes" do exist but in a different form - "Reincarnation". "Deja vu" is somewhat related to this except it's your spirit who's travelling and that, of course, you are alive. 😊
Well, I hope I make sense to it. Keep us posted and thanks for sharing your story.
