I have many stories, one of which I am (almost) dying to share... But I will write that next time.
This happened while I was in a pub known as ' the angel inn ', which is not to far from London, south side of London. Addington I think to be precise. A beautiful pub, the place I had undertaken my first ever paranormal investigation, with which results were so compelling we had to return the following year, not to be disappointed.
The first year, which was my first investigation. We were standing in the bar area. I was leaning against the bar listening to a medium talk, when I saw what looked like a white see through image run at the speed of light through the bar into the kitchen (you know, the bit of the bar you can lift so to enter the bar). It was so quick, but I knew I had seen it. I darted my eyes around to see if anyone else had noticed it. I noticed one lady who had just taken her vision from that area away with a concerned look. I knew she had seen it, but still as it was my first investigation I was unsure if people would think I was crazy. So I didn't say anything for 40 minutes. I was with my mother, (I was 25, now almost 27) on this investigation and figured if I tell her, at least she won't think I'm crazy. But strangely, after I told her, and she told the group leader, the leader replied that a woman in the group had moments before just told her that she saw the same exact thing. This woman happened to be the woman who I knew had seen it.
Later, before leaving the pub, the landlord told us of a few "claimed happenings". One included that many people, while sitting at the bar, had seen the figure run through the bar into the kitchen at the flash of an eyelash. The fact it was reported and the landlord had not known I had seen it, and the lady who reported seeing the same event at the same time as I did, did not know I had seen it was more than enough proof for me to know I had not been seeing things.
There were a few hotspots in the pub reported by many people over the years, and we came across them. One being the Lady's toilet. As it was my first investigation, I wanted at least 1 minute alone, despite it being in the contract I signed that this is not allowed.
Everyone went into a different room, but I lingered at the back, so as to stay in the bar area on my own for a few minutes. I did this, and while in one area, standing, I smelt a distinct baby sick smell. We had been there hours, and no one had reported it, after 5 seconds it had gone. Upon telling people, no one could then smell it. I thought this strange.
The story I want to tell right now was the same place. But on the second visit we had taken to this beautiful pub. My scientific researching friend and me were taking pictures and temperature readings, when he had asked me to take a picture of the ladies toilet door because when pointing in that exact direction the camera refused to allow him to take a picture. This is not uncommon for investigations. So I happily tried myself with my own camera. It also refused to let me take a picture, but after 15 seconds I was "allowed". So I thought I would stand next to this door, as the landlord had said many people have reported things near this door, and our group - before knowing of the landlord's tales, had reported similar feelings in this area. It was regrettable, for me to have stood there.
After a few minutes I began to feel uneasy and sick. So I left the area to a different part of the bar. Without thinking I decided to stand exactly where I had smelt baby sick scent on the previous visit one year earlier. While standing there I began to feel worse, so much worse I could not stand. The feeling was horrible, I cannot explain. I have never felt it before or since. I sat on a chair and told the group how I felt. One of the two mediums known as Jo (very skilled in what she does, I have to admit) said I need healing and began to do this. I had no idea what she was going to do, but after a few minutes, for a few moments I began to feel like an illness was literally being pulled out of me. It gave me a huge shiver through my body of which again nothing in my life could I compare, at the exact same time she said, " whoa I don't want it! " Implying that she had felt the feeling come out of me and towards her. I began to feel better, but not totally. She had removed the sick feeling, but I still felt dizzy. Energy less. A feeling I had never experienced, sure I have felt dizzy in my life and sick, but this was different. I was starting to hate this feeling, sitting holding my hands saying in my mind over and over again " I wish this would just go away, this feeling ". When I lifted my head from my arms after continuously thinking this way, I saw a blue light, touch my arm. It was in the small shape of a hand. Ten seconds later I felt fine, I could smile, something I had not done for 20 minutes up to that moment, I was simply unable to do, I had felt so bad that I had almost stood up to go outside many times. I believed the moment it happened beyond personal doubt that something had just made me feel better. Something that was not of this world.
I told the medium about the occurrence, and she said that people had reported earlier of seeing blue lights in different area's of the bar, although what I saw touch me was more describable, it was a blue hand, that of a child/girl because of the size of it - I believe.
To make it feel even less coincidental, the other medium had picked up on a little girl's spirit in the pub without my knowledge.
I really believe the girl had been looking at me for a while and genuinely felt like she wanted to help, or held a feeling of concern, and like a child might, gently touched my arm. Maybe with or without intentionally doing so, did actually heal me.
It was a remarkable feeling, 20 minutes of complete discomfort of which I cannot explain or had never felt in 26 years, to instantly disappear when I saw this blue hand touch my arm.
It was a long drive home, but I spent the majority of it with a smile.
