My first experience in seeing something not from this plain, was when I first went back to the Philippines for the first time since I moved to Australia.
It was in 2002 and all my relatives were either having an afternoon nap or out buying dinner. Us, cousins, were all sitting in the lounge room just mucking round and playing games when I noticed one cousin turn pale. I asked her what was wrong and she said she can see a little girl sitting in the middle of the lounge room floor just watching us and laughing at us. When I looked to see where she said it was, I saw the spirit of a little girl about the age of 8 or 9 dressed in the traditional Philippine costume from back in the days.
When I looked at the TV where she was sitting, I noticed no reflection. I froze and asked if anyone else could see her and no one could except for myself and my cousin who saw her. I confronted my grandfather about what I saw and he told me she's a harmless little girl who used to have a house which she lived in on that land. So when I have seen her there, I just say hello to her to acknowledge her.
After this experience and going back home to Australia, another experience was one night I had just finally started to watch a dvd on my own when I heard my son talking to someone. He was about 3 years old at the time and it was already 11pm. When I checked up on him and stood at the doorway of his room and asked who he was talking to, he said it was Grandma.
As I looked at the end of my son's bed, I saw a Chinese woman. My boy, being half Chinese, I asked what she looked like and said, she was Chinese. When I asked my best friend's mother for a picture of how her mother looked like and showed it to my son also, my son was laughing and said that was his grandma who came to visit him a few days ago. I wasn't scared- I was more happy and not worried cause I knew who he saw was his great grandma who was very close to my son's father.
I get worried at times cause I know some kids can see spirits and I'm hoping that my son doesn't come across any bad ones. He is now 5 years old and so far nothing bad has been sensed or seen. So every night before bed we always pray just to be on the safe side.
