    Re: When ghosts aren't invisible

    If there is something really important...or if I get something that I feel is 'real' I can "take requests" but there are no guarantees. It is really nice to give information and get proof that it is true. I'm still my biggest skeptic. It helps keep me honest.

    devist8me your problem/question is interesting. I can't give you the answer absolutely but I might be able to give you helpful clues. It might be fun to try. But it has to be out of interest only. I couldn't let you put too much faith in what I may tell you.

    David.

    Children and pets are the most perceptive to ghosts. I"m not even sure if they understand the difference between ghosts and living people.

    I won`t say I disbelieve in ghosts, only that I have never encountered one , which makes it harder to believe. That said, I have no reason to dispute other people`s genuine stories about them.

    ok...you said that about pets and that creeped me out. My cat has been going wacky on me this week. She is a stray..and never even 'meows' but she has been going off about something and we can't figure it out. You think she sees dead people?


    Also, what if I told you that I see shadows zoom across the floor sometimes?! lol I contribute the annoyance to playing too many video games and still seeing aftershadows. But sometimes I swear I see stuff but when I turn around to look harder there is nothing there. I think I saw a cat in my kitchen yesterday. Which is normal cause I have a cat in the house...but at the time my cat was outside. Just seeing what is usually there? btw, this was a wicked looking feline. My oldest daughter thinks I'm nuts cause I'll just be sitting around and jerk my head and ask her 'what was that??' Can't tell you how many times she has suggested I get meds for my odd behavior.


    ok...and one more...on a serious kinda thing cause it really does freak me out. My grandmother....she sees people in her house. But she is really old and by herself alot so we blame the meds she is on. But, she sees her dead husband. That's not all. She sees her dead husband with what she calls "a bunch of women...or whores" and they sleep on the back of her couch. Isn't that creepy? She even cooks for them sometimes so I know she really thinks they are there. But the docs say that it is just a bad reaction to her medication.

    that's all my ghost stories....crazy cat...creepy shadows...and grandmother sees dead husband.

    That is fascinating for sure koan. My cat, like most I think, always looks abruptly here and there. I hope my Grandmother was there with us that day. I just can't shake the spooked feeling about it all.

I was seated in a recliner and he was looking about 2 feet above my head. Staring. Fearing he had spotted a spider or worse I whirled around and saw nothing. When I asked what he was looking at he replied "I was watching GG, there!" All of us were chilled and shocked as she had passed away nearly a year earlier and she was not mentioned at all that day beforehand. I still shiver when I think of it. He was too young for practical jokes and ghosts don't exist. Or do they? I wonder all the time if she WAS really there that day. We miss her terribly.

    Re: When ghosts aren't invisible

    Koan... I am sitting here wiping my eyes -while I read this thread...I did a terrible thing to my son -My daddy died when He was 2 1/2..He loved his grampa...While at the cemetery..- His dad - was holding him while I was under the tent with my family...It was October 21 - and it started to snow...He kpet saying things out loud (he had never seen snow before or was old enough to remember it anyway) - people were trying hard not to laugh..but he was just so little he didn't understand.. (my dad had a heart attack - and during the angiogram, he coded - he never came back to us until the day he died and we took him off the machines...It was a awful 11 days) - Anyway - My son's dad was trying to get him to be quiet...and when they started to put the casket down into the ground..He started screaming - "let him out......he needs to get out..Please don't put dirt on my grandpa.." It was so hard on him..but with in days - he kind of stopped talking about him...

    Months later - he woke me up and said that he couldn't sleep - and grandpa had come and wanted him to play trucks..I laid in bed awhile - while he told me this wild "STORY" about him and his grandpa playing...
    This went on for months - he would wake up his sister and asked her if she wanted to play with him and grandpa...My daughter would get so upset and cry because she was afraid...
    It kept up for along time..I started to ignore it - and felt like he was just healing..
    My brother - wanted to buy a new truck..and my father and him were BEST friends..My dad had always helped him with big decisions in life like his semi's...we were eating lunch on the 4th of July - and Rory went up to him and said - Buy the blue one...and Doug said " what are you talking about?" Rory then said..Grandpa told me to tell you to buy the blue one..My brother got up and left..He knew the stories of Rory and his dreams...Later he called and said " Dawn I went to Kansas City to buy a new truck..did u know that? - I said no why..He said Rory came up to him in the living room and whispered buy the blue one...HE said he was picking between the blue and red ones...I was just so afraid...that after that - when he would get up in the middle of the night I would make him come and sleep in my bed..I wouldn't let him "play with grandpa" - - I finally had enough when he wouldn't go to sleep - at night or I would have to have the top of his dresser all cleared off - because "sometimes grandpa sat there"..that I sat in the hall and screamed at 3:00 in the Am - telling my dad just to leave us alone..and go away-

    The next day Rory got up and told me he was mad at me becuase his grandpa wouldn't play trucks anymore - and he had to say goodbye..Now I can sit here and cry my eyes out- and beg him to come back - but Rory doesn't even talk about him..and when I show him a picture of him..He will say - "Yep thats my grandpa and mom made him DIE and go away..."He is 5 - and doesn't see him or talk to him anymore..Last August my brother was driving down HWy 71 and a kid trying to commit suicide hit him head on - at 100 miles an hour..It ripped the fuel call right off his semi - My brother was met on the side of the road after trying to get out of his truck..This ol farmer with bib overalls on..stopped him and said - "don't go back there - He's gone..wait for the state trooper.." Doug doesn't have to live that vison because he never went back there - BUT nobody also saw the Ol Farmer Doug talked about either - We swear - that it was my dad....but Koan--will he ever come back to Rory? You said you had "IT" as a child - and then "IT" came back..Do you think I ruined it for my son because I became angry??

    Ok I know this was a HUGE post...Sorry......

    Re: When ghosts aren't invisible

    mominiowa, it was a long post but well worth the read. Thank you for sharing that story. A couple of things came to mind.

    You didn't "wreck" anything for him long term. He has probably shut some things out now because it would seem to him that they are 'bad' to talk about. You might want to talk to him about why you got mad so he knows it wasn't his fault. Even though he says you "killed" grandpa he doesn't necessarily feel that way about it. You can let him know that it scared you at first but that now you find it very interesting and hope he will trust you to tell you again if he does see grandpa...or any other spirits. However you would word it.

    In the meantime, it is a valuable lesson to him to separate his visions from the normal world. You are not the only person who would be startled and upset by them. One of those nasty life lessons.

    If he is meant to develop his gift it will return. It may be that he has to develop himself and experience other things to grow as a person before it returns. If it never seems to return you can be sure he is still using his gift but in less obvious ways.

    My daughter stopped seeing spirits when she was about six. Because I see them she sometimes makes up stories about them just to chat. It makes it harder for me to know when she is telling the truth. But she remembers clearly when she used to play and talk to them. As long as children don't feel like spirit talk is "bad" or "wrong" they will likely remain more open to it.

    Your father was merely showing respect for you. He will and has returned. Just kept a lower profile.

    I love this thread!! But, it makes me sad because I lost my mom when I was 26 years old. She died of a heart attack. I have such a great void in me since her death. We go on living but it's never the same. I was very close to her. I have had a couple of dreams with her in them, but I don't know if she was visiting me or if it was just me dreaming. She told me once years ago if that when she died she would come visit me "if she could". Maybe she did. But me, being in the physical, I want something concrete, that I can't second guess. I miss her so much.
