My husband, two
children and I lived in a 120 year old house in the country. The house itself
had a "feeling" of ghosts of children living in it. Not any negative feelings,
just that we were not alone. Strange things occurred in the house such as a
window unit air conditioner coming on by itself, several of my son's toys
activating themselves and objects such as keys being moved then put back in
their original place.
My husband got a
different job in another part of the state and we were planning a move. I was
asleep one morning, nothing out of the ordinary, just asleep when I felt myself
"wake up". I literally floated through the foyer hall from the master bedroom
and onto the front porch were I saw my deceased father standing there.
He was dressed in his
regular everyday clothes, khaki pants, belt and all. He was surrounded with a
soft, white and yellow light. He spoke to me with his mind and I answered him
with my mind. He was concerned that I was alright and I assured him that I was
fine and I really wanted him to go and be happy. I said this to him with my
mind, "Go and be happy Daddy, I am fine, I promise. And I love you!". He
projected pure love to me and I gave back pure love to him. The surroundings
were as real as in everyday life, the front door (which was closed) the porch
itself, the windows on the porch, the leaves in the trees, the fallen leaves on
the porch. My body was still "me" but with no weight. I could see and hear but
I spoke with my mind. My father was also very real and he spoke but his mouth
never opened. We did not touch, but there was absolutely no reason to as we
were connected with our souls.
I was filled with peace
and happiness. Then all of a sudden, I was literally sucked through the front
door, back down the foyer hall and into the bedroom where I SLAMMED back into my
body. I woke up and was shaking all over because I thought I had died. My
chest hurt and by body felt "weird", heavy and sort of vibrating. The slamming
back happened extremely fast, like I was sucked back at a very rapid speed.
I cried because of the
realization that something had just happened to me and I did not know what.
When I told my husband about it all I could do was cry. I cried because of the
beauty of the experience and also from the pain of going back into my body and
from the general experience itself. It was both joyous and scary. I have not
talked about it since the day it happened because the emotions involved were too
strong until now.
I had never had an
experience like it before and I have not had one since. I have always had a bit
of ESP, so did my father and so does one of my children but I have never talked
much about it. We are Southern Baptist and I have never studied about Out of
Body Experiences, but I am now curious as to what happened and why. This is how
I came to your site and as I began reading some of the other stories, I came to
realize that I really did need to share mine.
After all this time, I
do feel that the presence of spirits in that house was what allowed my
experience to occur. My father had died from heart failure on my birthday while
he was in the car with me 3 years before this happened. I missed him but I had
never tried to reach him. I always prayed to God and sometimes I would say that
I really missed my father because he was my best friend.
am happy that the experience occurred and I am relieved that I can finally share
it with others.
