A Kind Gesture


My best friend Payton visited for the summer and spent about a month at my house. She left today, and since I have nothing else to do and since I've been meaning to get around to it I decided I'd post a few stories tonight.

This story happened a few weeks ago when we were both trying to fall asleep. We both lay in bed talking for a while, and after some time we both started falling asleep. Sometimes when I try to fall asleep, I hear people talk. They never talk to me, but they talk amongst themselves. Half the time I only understand what they say while they say it, but when I come to realize that someone is talking, I don't remember what they say because it automatically stops.

But that night, it wasn't people that I heard talking, but the clanking of metal, and chains banging against each other. I immediately sat up and woke Payton and told her what I heard. I never really get scared when I hear people talk, but that night for what ever reason those noises seemed threatening.

Payton told me there was nothing to be afraid of, having experiencing worse things herself, so I tried to fall back asleep. Just as I was almost asleep I felt a really warm hand wrap around my left hand. It stayed there for a moment then let go. It left warmth radiating from my hand. When it let go, I could feel a kind and warm presence floating above me, as if protecting me.

Needless to say, I slept really well that night, knowing someone was watching out for me.

I felt it a couple times in when I was in Corsica in February, Miss_Violet. And I felt it at my dad's new house at the end of last year a bit too. I'm pretty sure it follows me around and is not only at one house.
Thanks for reading:)

Warming your hand and floating above you to protect you really sounds like a Guardian to me ^^ Have you felt that presence recently?

Yeah, I figured it was some sort of presence like that, or just someone watching over me. The thing is, is that for the past two years I've had nightmares non-stop (which really deprives me of sleep) and, well, it feels weird to say but maybe they knew, and wanted me to get a good night's sleep?

Hi my name is Mike I am a medium I see spirits quite a few times. I have talked to some of them. Seems like to me that it was a mother who had passed away in that house years before you all moved in do some research on the house try to find out who owned it before. I feel that it was a mother or grandmother making you feel at ease and at peace so you could get some good rest. It never seemed to want to hurt you. Just sounds like a mother or grandmother's love God Bless

Thanks for reading, Dreamergal!
Yeah, I definitely got a good vibe from that spirit, but just like the "ghost child" I haven't felt it around lately. Well I've only been to my mom's house a few times since the occurance, but who knows, it could still be there!
