Paranormal experience

I'm not a superstitious person. I don't believe in wacky, ghostly stuff. I don't summon spirits or delve in the macabre.

But something happened to me that makes me wonder. Last night, my sis and I were watching back 2 back episodes of Extreme Makeover she taped. After she fed the baby, she burped her and she spit up. I told her that I'd go get Savahn a change of clothes. I rounded the corner and proceeded down the long hallway. At the end of the hallway is my mom and dad's old bedroom. The light was on. As I rounded the corner, I caught a glimpse of a shadowy figure moving swiftly from right to left. I got cold chills. I am not fearful of spirits because I know that I'm washed in the blood of the Lamb and nothing can harm me. I went down the hallway and peeked into the room to see if there was anything abnormal in there. The two big dogs were in there lying on their pillows fast asleep. I wonder if my Dad's spirit still lingers there? Do people immediately go to Heaven when they die or do they just hang out until Jesus comes back to get us all? Anyway, I told my sister of the experience and she also got cold chills. Then I remembered that my mom told me of a similar experience she had. My sis ran to the grocery store for something. Mom was alone at the house. She heard a noise, turned and looked and saw a shadowy figure. She started calling out to my sister, thinking it was her she had seen. But my sister had not yet returned from the store.

I had forgotten all about Mom's story until last night when that happened to me. It's not like my sis and I had been talking about it and the recent conversation led me to imagine that I saw something. No, I know what I saw. It was really strange. I was so close to my dad. If it was him, then I'm happy that he's still near.

Has anything otherworldly ever happened to you?? What are your thoughts? This would have been more fitting a couple weeks ago during Halloween. Hee hee...

No! Ok, so I know that the 6th Sense was just a movie but it FREAKED me out and I am so closed to anything like that... hopefully it never happens to me LOL !!! I don't know what really happens either, but we will understand all the unexplained things someday when we get to heaven !!

I would like to think that it was your dad and he was letting you know he is still near to you.

I completely believe in ghosts (spirits) and I believe they can come around you for comfort... That is probably what you felt and saw... The only COLD feeling was most likely just cause you were out of your comfort zone about it. Trouble is, I know bad spirits exist as well.. I wish only the Godly ones did, but I'm afraid not.
My only experience was with a bad one.. So, I doubt you want to hear of that... I have never seen one... but I heard it in my ear.
I am thankful to not have seen any. I am weird about all the supernatural stuff... I know it's there, I just don't like it...lol

Yours sounds like it was a nice encounter.

Hmmm...very interesting!!! It definitely seems like something is there!

I have always believed that we go straight to heaven when we die, so I'm not sure how to explain things like that.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!

I totally believe you Theresa! Like Kara said there are bad spirits and good spirits that live among us. I have a very good Christian friend (she's really like a grandmother to me), she told me once "The spiritual world is more real than the world we see". The bad of course comes from satan and the good, from Heaven. When my mom died, I was helping my step-dad clean. At this particular time I had a bad feeling going into the house, so I prayed before stepping foot to prepare myself. I was busy cleaning and walked down the hallway and passed my mom's bedroom...and there was a figure. At first I thought it was my step-dad, but quickly realized he was still gone. I went directly in that room and prayed my butt off and sang praises to God. I got the feeling it was a bad spirit. I figured if it was good it would stick around...and if it was bad my praying would make it leave. I've seen some Heavenly things, but they were always very bright lights. I always assumed, darkness or shawdowy figures are bad and light-n-bright ones are from Heaven. NOW I have no idea if I'm right LOL...this is just my feelings. I know you are a believer, now sure of the spiritual lives of the folks living there...but I hope for you all it was a good spirit!

Jude said...

Hmmm... that would freak me out a bit too. But you do hear stories about missionaries having angels around their homes that attackers saw, etc. so, you never know...

Hard to say what it was. But, I'd trust yourself in the seeing.

I've experienced all sorts of things I can't explain. Lately, happily, it's been a lot less frightening because I'm finally "getting it" that in following Him, I'm safe. Still, stuff like this does get a girl wondering...
