I don’t think I’ve written a post this personal yet. By personal, I mean for both myself and all of you. I view spirituality as a very personal journey that affects each of us differently. I would like to know what each of you thinks about our souls and what happens to them when we pass.
I bet that all of us have some type of “ghost” story that we can tell. Something out of the corner of your eye, something right in front of you, the noises you can’t explain, that feeling of not being alone even though you’re the only one home. That kind of stuff. Lately, things have been happening to me and around home that really got me wondering about this! It all started when I found an orb in one of my pictures. ( I can feel all of you rolling your eyes at me!) I have been taking pictures for a long time and I can tell you that I have NEVER had one of these show up before!
This past summer, my sister and I were bored one afternoon and decided to go look at houses. We had walked through a couple with no excitement, but the third one was different. We walked in and I said, “man, it’s cold in here!” I really liked this house so I was taking pictures of the different rooms with my digital camera (nothing fancy) and didn’t notice anything until I loaded the pictures onto my computer that night. There, in the upper corner of the living room, is a round translucent ball. I thought, that wasn’t there when I was in the house was it?? None of the other pictures of that house had an orb in it.
Then, my grandpa from Missouri came to visit. We all had supper over at my mom and dad’s after which we made the kids sit on the couch with great grandpa to get pictures. We took a lot of pictures between my sisters and I, but only 1 came up with an orb in it. Right over the head of my nephew whose mom is the one who was with me at the houses the day the first one showed up.
A couple of weeks ago, I went out with my cousin and her girlfriend for a couple of drinks. As we’re chatting, Kim, my cousin’s friend, says she thinks she has a ghost in her house! Ok, explain. She said when they are in bed at night they can hear the bathroom door opening and closing. A couple of days after, she was talking to her mom on the phone while cleaning the bathroom and telling her mom what had happened and the bathroom door slammed shut! Apparently, whatever is there didn’t like her talking about it! Needless to say it freaked her out. Her mom’s advice was to tell the ghost or whatever to please stop and leave them alone. Guess what? NOTHING has happened since. I said, I feel your pain! I think there is someone in my house too. When I’m home and Toby is not I hear things. It’s usually when I’m in the shower and it sounds like there is someone walking around in the living room and opening the cupboards. Freaky right? Come to find out, Toby hears the same thing when I’m on call and not there for the night! Wonderful! To top it off, our TV has been acting up. I was thinking it was just because it was old, but the more I thought about it the TV starting acting up about the same time I started hearing things. Coincidence? Maybe, but the last time the TV was being dumb I said out loud, “Can you please stop messing with the TV?” and ya know what? The TV has worked fine since!
My cousin had to put her stories in too that night. She said that she doesn’t get orbs too often in pictures, but they have a video monitor in their baby’s room. She sees them all the time on there and they zoom all over the screen. She said she lays her baby down in the crib, turns off the light and RUNS to her bedroom just so she can watch them on the monitor. She tried getting her husband to see them, but as soon as he’d start watching the monitor they would stop! Must not like him or something!
Sorry, this got a little long! I have many more stories I could share, but I think you get my point! I do believe in spirits and an afterlife because too many things have happened to me and my family for me to ignore it. Yes, maybe some things can be explained, but not all. I do believe in ghosts, I do believe in ghosts, I do I do I do believe in ghosts!
That night we went out…Left to right, my cousin Jenny, her friend Kim, myself and my friend Tara. There were many pictures taken that night, but this was the only one with orbs in it. IDK…..!
