A Visit From My Cousin


My cousin was murdered March 23, 2008. He and I were very close growing up. We even lived together at a time. I was very saddened by his unexpected death.

Around the time he died strange things have been happening. The day of his funeral the front door at our grandmother's home flew open and closed by it self. No one was home but my grand ma and my handicapped cousin. They were in the kitchen. The door stayed open for about 2 minutes then it closed.

That morning at my home, my radio station had been changed. I listen to a certain station every night and I have never turned it. But I woke up the day of his funeral and it was in a different station.

A few weeks after my cousin passed I had to get up around 6:00 am to get ready for school. I heard someone coming from the third floor. I heard heavy foot steps as if someone were running. My room is on the second. But then I had to stop and think. No one ever gets up this early but me. I thought one of my brothers were up. So as I'm walking into my room I look up and I see my cousin staring me dead in my face. He had on all black. He didn't speak. He just disappeared.

I think he came back one last time because he lived with my family and me. I got scared and ran to my room.

Very good story, when my nana died the same things happened to my family to. When I was in the shower, I looked out at my stairs when I got out and I saw my nana in her funeral clothes. The EXACT ones I saw her wearing at the funeral. Her outfit was pretty. (lol) Good story. 😁

I have a question you say... As I'm walking into my room I look up and I see my cousin staring me dead in my face, then you say I got scared and ran to my room... But you were already there according to you.
It can't be both. So could you explain...

People we are close to in life-we have a bond that is not broken in death. Our body may die, but our soul is eternal. Sounds like your cousin came back to verify his eternal standing, and to reassure you... He is alive in spirit, and very much moving on to the next stage of existence. What a beautiful experience you have had. Don't be afraid, death is just another beginning!...I have been able to see the dead since I was 3-4 years old.

I started the web site to help people. Please realize, we live on after our time on this planet is over... I am so sorry for the circumstances surrounding your cousins death, but be assured, he is more than fine in his ethereal body!Blessings, Ghostseer 😐
