Ghostly Experience At Funeral


Ghostly Experience at Funeral

I'm 44 years old and my paranormal experience spans over 41 years. There is so much for me to write and truly by the time I'm finished writing I'd probably have forgotten just as much all of this is true and I will tell you as best as I can remember.

My first experience was when I was 3 years old I was at my grandfather's funeral. He died in 1968 I remember not really understanding what was going on and I found myself standing alone at the back of the gathered mourners, I remember seeing what I would describe as a very short dark person or child he was running very quick, probably about 25 meters away from me. He stopped all of a sudden behind a headstone.

What happened next did frighten me; he tilted his head from behind the tombstone and looked straight at me. I remember crying and running to my mother, that was my first ghostly experience, I won't forget that one.

Guardian Angel

When I was about 7 years old I remember going to bed about 8 pm and like most children I slept with the light on. I shared the room with my two brothers and that would explain why my bed was directly under the light. I remember laying flat on my back my face was now in align with the light when suddenly I felt these hands come under my armpits and pick me straight up very urgently, my legs were still flat my top half was upright. Then about 3 seconds later, the light bulb exploded and landed exactly where my face previously was. I don't know who that was but it was the first of quite a few times I cheated death or serious harm.

Holy Ghost

I think those who have felt the presence of the Holy Ghost will know what I'm talking about here. It happened only once in my life, I was about 16 and I guess my faith was at its highest point. I'd just finished reading scripture and was spiritually reaching out when I felt a most wonderful spiritual uplift, hard to explain, I remember years later just after I lost my father, my mother who was not practicing religion was very depressed.

She explained a similar experience, one night when she felt like giving up, some type of spiritual entity reassured her and made her feel better. Over the years I have questioned my beliefs and at 30 years old went into denial and became a skeptic. I know some of you are looking for answers, I don't proclaim to have them, but its interesting mum and me having a similar experience with different beliefs.

Very interesting, the topic of guardian angels in particular facinates me. I recently read a book by an Irish lady called Lorna Byrne (various youtube interviews available) and she claims to communicate with angels as naturally as with humans. She provides a lovely description of them that sits so well with my outlook and would urge anyone to read her accounts. A very sweet snippet decribes how our souls were sent from heaven with our guardians (who are a gift from god) to the body we were to be born in and then one day our guardian will bring us back home to god. I really like that idea.
Ive heard many stories like yours,I'd like to believe (only when our free will is not effected) our guardian can and will do anything to keep us-our souls- safe until we are ready to go back to god. I'm still sitting on the fence a bit with my beliefs in so many of the mysterious things in life (except my belief in God) but I hope one day for a special experience that can get me completely off that fence.

Hello preeti, You have been blessed by the holy spirit, And that should make you feel special. Let me say this the honest truth about being physic, it is more of a hunch rather than knowing exactly what is going to happen past present and future. And for me to make any type of claim for other people would not be right. I can see you have had your feelings hurt so I will tell you this. One day you will meet your soul mate and the feeling of euphoria is something out of this world you'll know what I mean when it happens. Tl might mean something Good luck preeti.

Aussiedaz, I too myself believe in god... Same happened with me when I didn't scored gud marks in my 12th class and some other love problems I got depressed and I simply said..."For me there is no god now..."from next day whatever I read or see or hear from my friends or relatives all was connected with god... I read newspaper... I was reading horoscope for my mum and suddenly I looked at the top most column where it was written "God never does anything wrong to his children he does it to make you stronger so that you can be happy throughout your life" and seriously that time this came from my mouth " Mom god proved he's with me 😊 "...Can you tell when I'll die or something can you help me showing me my present my past I need your help... Do reply soon friend eagerly waiting for your reply 😊.

God bless you all ❤.

Thank you for your comments, I can't remember what the face looked like, It was not of a evil nature more like what are you looking at, if that makes sense. What I find interesting and I will write about it, In due time. The night before my mother was told she had terminal lung cancer, She had a dream that a little dark person, told her she would be better of in the spirit world. The same night a spirit guide told me in a dream, she would suffer throughout her cancer, My mother died august 13th 2009 both dreams came true. What a fighter miss her bad

That thing about the dark child at your grandpa's funeral is really creepy. Do you remember what the face looked like when it peeked out to look at you? Interesting stories, by the way.

Hello aussiedaz, Thank you for sharing these experiences with us. I have found myself being pulled out of the path of a speeding car by an invisible hand once. These type of happenings give me comfort in knowing that there is someone or something out there watching over us. 😊 ❤

I am glad to see someone with such faith. I myself have experienced such "death cheating" happenings.
