I work as a clairvoyant healer and counselor, as well as a medium. However that does not mean I have a lot of ghost experiences, although I have some. I see this as a ghost story, not a medium or psychic story because I was not working at the time and was as scared as anyone might be. I think that some spirits may see me as a source of healing at times, and that is how this event came about.
I was deep asleep in my bedroom when my eyes popped open and I was instantly awake. I realized why as soon as I saw this apparition in my darkened bedroom. It was up toward the ceiling and I felt it was aware of me. It looked like white tissue paper but had an ethereal quality to it, like it was dripping. It was floating in a big circle that spiraled smaller and smaller like a whirlpool with me as the center.
I knew it was seeking something and coming at me, so I jumped up, turned on the light and yelled at it to get out of there. I was too scared and upset to ask why it was there, because I was the focus of the appearance.
I got online looking for my friend who is often a co-adventurer with me in the realm of spiritual experiences. She quickly saw it as a woman seeking her husband and thought I might know how to find him. We both guided her to Spirit so she could be freed of this earthly search.
I could not help but think that is where the idea of the white sheet came from for ghosts, because although it was tissue-like, it also looked like a hanging white sheet. It has not come back since and we now giggle about it.
