Today is October 22nd 2008 and yesterday was a bit weird but today takes the cake. I returned home today from dropping my daughter off at high school. I am 34 and have a no mental issues and have no issues of any kind. I am very skeptical of anything out of the norm but today proves me wrong.
I went up stairs and was opening up the double doors of our master suite to allow some air to come in the room. I noticed a man out of the corner of my eye and there is no reason a man should be in my home. I yelled out a few profanities and started for my pistol but thought I should not let him out of my sight, I would just go to hand to hand against this intruder. He moved so swiftly and got to the top of my stairs in less than a second. At the top of my stairs there is a mirror on the wall, he walked towards the mirror but did not stop at the mirror.
He did look into the mirror out of the corner of his eye, fixed his hair as if he was just checking that his hair was still in place and then looked back at me. It was as if he was looking through me with a huge smile as if I was not even there and then walked to the door on his right and entered the room. The way he entered the room was very different though, the door was wide open but he sort of acted like he was walking through a tight squeeze and stooped his head down as if he was going to hit his head. There was plenty of room both ways; he did not have to do this.
Here is the weirdest part of all of this. The reason I did not chase him is that I almost passed out when I saw his face in the mirror. It was my father in-law. He passed away in March of this year. It was him but it was him with hair and him when he was about 30 I would say. I am still in tears for some reason and I am a big man with no feelings for such things but I am put back by this and not sure what to do at this point.
I will say that things have been a bit different around here lately. Yesterday my wife and I spoke of him still being around, since a few things had happened that could not be explained. Early yesterday the TV turned on by itself and we smelled cigarette smoke. He loved to smoke. We have smelled cigarette smoke a few times over the past few months and I have had a feeling of things moving around in the corner of my eye. So yesterday after all of these things happening my wife said "Dad if you here give me a sign that you are here?" While the words where still coming out of her mouth the shower turned on for maybe 15 seconds.
I am not sure how or why this is happening, why he came back and just walked through the house and looked passed me with no interaction. I would sure like to know if anyone has any ideas of what he might be doing or why he would show up but look by me as if I was not here. There was no reaction when I first cursed at him and there was no reaction from him at all. Has anyone had an experience similar to this?
I did see a small boy when I was young that was looking at the pictures on my wall in my mothers house where I grew up. I believe it was my father, since there was a picture of him in a sailor suit, just like the little boy was wearing. That was 30 years ago though.
Any input is appreciated I would like to try and understand what's going on and why he wouldn't want to move on? Can you move on to the afterlife and still present your self? Was this an attempt at letting us know he is here? Thank you for reading and helping me with this.
