Most people, when told of a supernatural experience, react with some kind of derogatory remark or quasi-scientific explanation.
As I was busy writing this, my cage birds screeched and I ran to see what was wrong. A hawk was by their window…trying to come into the house. I have never seen a hawk in my garden before. I walk a lot and have seen many kinds of birds of prey around, including king fishers, fish eagles, owls, – but never #hawks anywhere close to the house. Reading up on it I came across the following. Birds are very important indicators of after death experience. Please watch this Life after Death talk by a Hospice worker Cheryl Deines. https://youtu.be/uLbJtoczlGs.
Just think about this for a minute : If there is no #life after death what is the use of living?

I took that as a sign.
I have an entity in the house I live in. In the beginning he was quite harmless and just watched me, alerted me to his presence in small ways, usually just the intense feeling of being watched, woken up by that threatening heavy presence, unexplained noises, things falling. I am not the scared type so just lived my life as usual, especially as my beloved cats who were still alive then, never seemed to be bothered by him. Later he (I am convinced that the entity is male even though I have never seen a physical apparition of him) started to wake me by pressing down on me while I was sleeping, it felt like a huge heavy weight lay down on top of and around me. This house is a converted stable so I lightly assumed that it must be the spirit of a horse who died here. After he growled and hissed at me on separate occasions I became worried. I saw a glowing, almost electrical light hovering above me one night, it was beautiful but left me feeling weird. On separate occasions after my cats passed away – whilst he was around I would feel small areas of weight on or next to me after being alerted by the heavy presence and I am convinced that at those times my cats were laying by me, protecting me in their spirit forms. They always slept with me and had their favourite positions of comfort – Mischa by my head, Pooks and Lily behind my back and by my tummy. These are the places I felt the weight. It was extremely comforting.
I have recently had a lot of grief and sadness in this house where I have lived for three and a half years, as I have lost all three of my cats here to disease, and my three tortoises to human interference. One of my birds flew away. My elderly bird is not doing very well either. Then my Father passed over two months ago. It has been a dark, dark time for me personally, and adding to that was the fact that our region the Western Cape, has experienced the worst drought in history, huge fires engulfing towns and burning down thousands and thousands of square kilometres of vegetation. The death and destruction and fear and suffering of countless souls (hundreds of animals burned to death) hang over us every day. I have stopped reading reports online (I don’t own a TV) as I could not handle it anymore. I cried from morning to night, daily. For weeks. I smelled smoke which I detest as it signifies destruction – all day and night long. The forest died around us. Huge trees succumbed. I lived in fear of burning to death on a daily basis.
Negative spirits can feed off the grief, loneliness and fear and become stronger. I was broken. I am working on changing that, and after a year of mourning for my cats, very recently adopted a stray cat for company. I am flooding the house with love. The rain has started coming in slowly, we still need a whole lot more but there is life again, nature shows willingness to regenerate here and there. But so many are gone forever.
After the entity roughly pushed/hit me in my back (one night about a month or so ago) the blow coming from the side of my bed, I became fearful and started to sage smudge the house. I even slept with my .45 under my pillow for a while. (Don’t know of anyone who ever successfully shot at an apparition!) It was the first time he got blatantly physical with me and I was afraid of it escalating. It helped, together with a certain phrase I repeated when he bothered me again (once only). I have hung some brass bells over the doorway to my room and they ring every time I walk through. I burn incense and keep protective crystals close to me. In retrospect, I am now sorry that I never asked him what the problem was, why he was mad at me and whether he wanted me to help him in some way as he has not shown up since. I will do that if he comes by again. I promise not to pull the bed covers over my face and wait for him to leave which is a natural reaction I guess.
My daughter recently visited me (before I started the cleansing and other measures) and said that the bad ‘vibe’ in the house was almost overwhelming. She experienced her jewellery box flying off her table and landing on the floor. She is open-minded and has experienced the paranormal before. In a small one bedroom apartment which she called home for about six months, she experienced footsteps around her bed (wooden floor), being woken up at a specific time every night by a malicious presence and loud inexplicable noises in her small living space. She sage cleansed and placed crystals but moved out as soon as she could. That is sometimes the best thing to do.
A very good friend of mine has a black shadow #entity in her (very old) home, who must be someone who lived there before and he is threatening enough that she chooses not to sleep there at present. He has shown himself to a few of her guests as well who vowed never to return. He apparently leans over you when you are sleeping and tries to throttle you. That is scary, even for those not easily scared. My friend eventually asked him kindly and lovingly to leave as love is a powerful force. Nobody is brave enough though to go and spend the night to find out whether it worked!
Spirits usually visit at night as your life energies are at their lowest and this is usually when they can manifest or do things, not because it is dark – as most people believe.
I have seen countless orbs, moving around us, had presences in different houses, my car, my room, my bed, my bathroom… they are not confined to any specific area. Or time. Most of my experiences happened after sundown though, but not all. I have met with spirits both benign and malicious. I have never seeked out any of them. The entity who was in my car quite a few years ago, I found out later must have been a cyclist killed on that specific stretch of road. He was so real in my car that I repeatedly looked around to see if someone stowed away in the back seat. I had goosebumps all over and my hair stood up on my arms and neck.
Now, I must add that I strongly believe in #reincarnation. But before a soul can reincarnate you do have a certain time after death in the spiritual realm, from a few days to many years, according to the way you lived your life and the lessons you have learnt/still have to learn – or have unfinished ‘business’. If you were the victim of an unnatural or violent death you may stick around in the spirit realm until those who caused your death here on earth are brought to justice. If you were an exemplary good, kind and ‘perfect’ human being, a genuinely good person, you may live forever in the highest enlightened realm and never have to return to this earthly one as you have learnt all your karmic lessons. But nasty, bad, cruel people may return time and again to miserable lives until they have learnt the lessons the universe wishes them to learn. That, my friends, is Karma.
Religious persons may call that higher realm of enlightenment heaven, but I have never met any religious person who will go there straightaway. They all have so much to learn about life. Not even – or maybe only – Mother Teresa will go there even though she was led astray by the Catholic Religion.
All coincidence or imagination…some will say. ‘Just a trick of the light’, they say about unexplainable things captured on untouched video or photo. They (especially religious nuts) just blatantly refuse to open their minds enough to let in the possibility that things we can’t explain, do happen. Well, I am not one of those nuts luckily and yes, I believe that spirits (good and bad) communicate with us, alien visitors do come and check out life on this planet and that there is life after death. Are you possibly one of those arrogants who believe that in the huge solar system and beyond – us living earthly beings are the only ones alive? Really? Why then the whole galaxies still and maybe forever unexplored?
Open your mind.
Take a look at this picture, what do you see?
Just a normal picture taken in a bathroom? Look again.
I will enlarge the mirror portion for you. That is the face of my father. These photos of him clearly show the resemblance to his facial features.
He appeared to me this way on the day after his passing. I was lying in the bath, my happy place when I feel sad or unwell. Crying most probably. Burning my candles and incense.
I always have my tablet with me in the bath as I read whilst soaking my aches away. This specific night however I was listening to guided meditation (coping with grief) by Jason Stephenson. Suddenly my towel – on a rail kitty corner to the bath – slowly started unrolling from the rail and slid to the floor as in slow motion. As if someone was carefully pulling it down. All windows were closed and I live alone. Now, as I have the resident entity in the house, I thought it an extraordinary event because in addition to that, the candles also flickered at that time. I hung back the towel, I snapped some photos around the bathroom with my tablet. Most photos show nothing significant but the one above blew me away. In previous photos taken in the exact same place at exact same angle you can see the mirror just normal, then the face taking shape. He looks sad to me and I believe that he came to make amends. We did not speak for a while before his passing. I told him that I forgave him and was sorry for my part in it. Except for the orb (also with a face in) which appeared later that night in almost the same position on the mirror, I have not seen him since. Orbs are manifestations of spirit energy, much more frequently seen than full bodily or facial manifestations. Spirits are not all strong and have to learn to manifest. That is why only certain ones will ‘come through’ in seances.
This next very large #orb I observed in my garden, right above the grave of the owner’s beloved pet, Jasper the Labrador a few days after he passed away. I add it here as it was most probably the biggest orb I have ever observed. I believe that it may have been the spirit of Jasper, but it may have been the resident entity. There is no way for me to know.
If you don’t agree or think I am crazy, please read up on it. Don’t just surf the internet, read studies by people like Dr Ian Stevenson, Dr Brian Weiss etc. If a young child shows signs of recognising things, places or people he/she has not had the opportunity to be aware of, ask questions. Don’t just disregard it or worse belittle it. There exists an amazing amount of proof of reincarnation and for that matter of all of the above supernatural/paranormal phenomena, but unfortunately there are hoaxes perpetrated by idiots with too much time (and Photoshop) on their hands who can blur the lines enough to create disbelief in doubtful people.
Raised in a very religious and conservative household, (religion I feel being the biggest mass hoax of all time) these kind of things were believed to be ‘evil’ and not to be dabbled with. But yet, my Dad told us stories of a ‘ghost’ in their attic on the farm who pulled chains across the floor, about a manifestation of a person (soldier) at the end of the corridor in their old house…so real to them as it happened many times. Because until it happens to you personally, you can wish it away, ignore it, belittle it. No matter what your religious education says or how many people say that you are deluded. You WILL become a believer after experiencing the paranormal.
My personal experience with the #supernatural started as soon as I opened myself up to the possibility. Supernatural things may have happened to me before the age of 18 which I have forgotten, not recognised as such or was forced to ignore, but it was during my first year of university and friendship with an enlightened girl called Lynette, that my tightly closed eyes were opened. Being a senior she had her own room in res and invited a couple of us newbies over one evening. She lit some candles, laid out a big rectangular mirror, covered it with a thin layer of baby powder, wrote the letters of the alphabet on it (the poor student’s Ouija board), turned an empty water glass over on the side and told us to sit in a circle around it. I can’t remember what she asked, how she asked but can after thirty five years clearly remember my fear as the glass started moving and I upped and ran out of that room as fast as my legs could carry me. I have never touched Ouija boards or dabbled in any way with the conjuring of spirits since. I believe that you can unwillingly unleash or invite in stronger spirits than what you can handle.
I feel that because I am open-minded I have had the chance and opportunity to experience many #paranormal occurrences. Prophetic dreams, visions of things to happen and other premonitions included. I would love to delve into my repressed memories of my previous lives but unfortunately that is only advisable with the assistance of a very reliable and trustworthy hypnotist. None of which are available to me at present.
So the bottom line is this. If you have an unwanted entity or entities in your home or elsewhere in your life, be kind but firm and strong in dealing with them. Ask them politely to leave, in speaking – yes talk to them, ask how you can help them get to the light or use one of many ‘friendly’ ways to get them to leave. Crystals, meditation, incense, vibrations, bells and smudging. Do not anger them, do not open up any possibility of inviting more/worse in by doing seances or playing with Ouija boards. That is best left to the professionals.
