Ghost Saves Life And House


Something happened to me about 2 years ago that I can never forget. I was home alone one day watching television. I got hungry so I decided to make pop tarts (breakfast bars).

I wasn't really paying attention to what I was doing since I was still a little sleepy because it was the morning. By accident, I put the pop tarts in the microwave for 7 minutes. (pop tarts are supposed to be toasted in the toaster. Not the microwave) so I put them in the microwave and went back to watching TV.

I have a little opening that connects my kitchen to my TV room. I didn't feel like sitting on the couch so I was standing up in between the doorway that connects the two rooms. My back was facing my kitchen and I was facing my TV.

About 4 minutes go by and all of a sudden something ran behind me. I actually felt my hair blow up and it literally felt like someone ran behind me. I knew no one was home, no windows were open, the air conditioner was not on and no fans were on. Something just ran behind me. So I quickly turn around. No one is there but my whole kitchen was filled with smoke, my pop tarts were sparking and on fire.

I guess this was a ghost trying to tell me that that was happening behind my back and saved my life and my house. I've always believed in ghosts and spirits but when I actually felt one run behind me and blow my hair up I was more of a believer.

Wow. That is very weird, but sensible. I hope you were okay, what happened after you noticed that a 'Ghost' ran behind you, sort of telling that your house was almost on fire. Please reply. Kindest regards, Freya. 😉

Wow very interesting story. Thank you for sharring this story with us. I realy enjoyed reading it. I believe that some spirits want to warn us. Usually they are family members but sometimes they could be strangers who want to help us. It is a good thing that someone warned you. If you would have waited a couple of more minutes I bet the kitchen would catch fire. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Good thing you had a visit then. Whatever was on television must have held your attention enough for you not to smell or see the smoke. I would think that would make a believer out of me too.

That was a really amazing account of what happened. It seems to me that you migt have a guardian spirit, or maybe just a freindly ghost warning you of danger. But have have you experienced any other near-death experience with a warning. I would like to know. Thank you
God bless.
