This week we're talking ghosts at Mavens. What do they look like and how do they sound? I have several thoughts on this.
From personal experience, I have seen a ghost exactly once and felt ghosts other times. We lived in an L-shaped rambler growing up and my parent's bedroom was all the way at one end, the kitchen at the other end. One night after Daddy passed, I "saw" him walking down the hall just like he'd done a million times before. I even remember the floor furnace squeaking as he strode over it. To my mind, he appeared more transparent than solid, but he was recognizable. The other occasion was in my aunt's house and also at my brother-in-law's first house. Both times it felt like a really big ice cube brushed against my spine.
More recently, my thoughts on ghosts have been tainted by the shows Medium and Ghost Whisperer. I do believe spirits are around us and that some are more sensitive to them than others.
At the risk of sounding like a total loon, I've also seen my guardian angel, who is a full grown red-headed male. He came to me in a time of stress, manifested in a human body, and talked to me, with a human voice. He offered comfort and reassurance and I took it. There was so much love in his eyes it made me cry. Both kids were in pre-school so it was mid-1980s. Haven't seen him since, so I must be doing okay.
I'm reluctantly fascinated by these not so visible things.
who is going to be an ostrich for the rest of the week to forget being a loon
