My Mom's Uncle Nick


I don't usually get "ghostly experiences". This maybe as far as I remember my only one or at least the only experience I can think of at this moment. But honestly and truly undoubtedly I believe in ghosts, spirits.

This happened when I was in third grade. I was sitting in class doing my work when I got this really strong feeling that I should look behind me, so I did. When I looked back I saw a shadow. It looked like my mom's uncle Nick who died I think about three years earlier. I couldn't believe my eyes. I didn't think it was possible. I blinked and he was gone. Four of my friends had been looking in the same direction I was looking in. I asked them if they had seen anything, they all said that they had not seen anything but the windows. I got really freaked out. When I got home I asked my mom what she thought of my "ghostly experience". She thought that I was either tired or just making things up for attention.

Even though I was absolutely positive that I saw my mom's uncle then, now I'm not entirely sure.

Please tell me what you think in your comments.

The same thing happened to me about 2 years ago. I was in my math class sharpening my pencil, and I turn around only to see an all gray figure. I expected it to be one of the seniors that was in my class but when I took a double take, it was gone. I think it may have been my imagination. I also think that you did the same thing.
Thanks for sharing! 😕

Just because others didn't see the shadow doesn't mean there wasn't one-you might have been more sensitive than your classmates. Even more, sometimes a "visit" is meant to be seen by one person only-the one it is intended for.

Thank you for sharing that one special moment with us.

How do you know it was exactly your moms uncle? It could have been another person. I agree you may have been imagioning it but just because your friends didn't see anything doesn't meen he wasn't there. 😜

Hmm...are you sure that you were not imagining it?

Only you saw what you saw, but since your friends didn't see it, it couldn't have been a shawdow of someone.

It may have been your uncle just making sure you are doing good and keeping up your grades! 😜

Have you seen him elsewhere?
