I will try and describe in detail what happened around 3 years ago at the funeral gathering of my grandmother at her house. Any questions or any
answers to what I might have experienced please go forth and ask/reply.
Around 3 years ago (give or take a month) my grandmother tragically passed away. She was fine, then a few days down the road - dead. It was very
sudden as you can imagine but death happens to people and at times when we least expect it. My friends Father passed away from a heart attack 4-5
years ago and he was a very fit man, jogging everyday etc.
My grandmother was sent to hospital and before we knew it she had a severe heart attack and was 'brought back to life.' Then some of her internal
organs stopped working and she was hooked up to an oxygen mask for the last few hours of her life. To conclude without going deep into what happened
at the hospital, the entire family, and I mean all her sons and daughters and grandsons/daughters etc were all around her as she passed away. We all
saw it and I can never forget it. I kissed her on the forehead and she slept in eternal rest, and the hospital did whatever it does after a death.
My story and question is what happened to myself and my cousin (he's 1 month older than me) at the gathering at my grandmothers house the day of the
The hearse brought the body to the house and we all gathered in the front room. A priest came inside and we all sang the Lords Prayer. What happened
then I also can't forget, hence me writing this post. As we sang I began to feel very dizzy and light headed. I felt as though I was rocking back and
forth, and my eyes were going blurry. I began to feel really hot and flustered like an intense energy passing through the circle of family members all
chanting the Lords Prayer. As the 'event' finished myself and my cousin went outside - I just needed air. I stood there for a while and thought
"why don't I ask him what happened?" He said he felt exactly the same sensations that I did. Therefore the 'happenings' stand up - because of
multiple witnesses. The dizziness, heat, light headedness and rocking all stopped as I left the house. I must also add me and my cousin have a very
strong/close relationship. We used to spend days upon days in each others company and I look at him like a Brother. Could that be why we experienced
the same experience?
I have spoken to other family members about that 'event' and no one else has come forward saying they experienced what myself and my cousin went
through when we chanted the Lords Prayer. I feel I am very 'open' about the spirit world and have encountered what I believed to be a spirit of my
grandfather a few days after he passed away when I was very young. Again, it was me and my cousin, sleeping in my grandfathers bed. During the night I
awoke with the name of my cousin being called. I turned towards the doorframe and saw a black outline/shadow resembling my grandfather. I even
remember seeing the outline of glasses which he used to wear. I quickly glanded towards my cousin laying next to me, and looked back at the door. It
must have taken a maximum of 1 second - and by the doorway was nothing. The 'figure' had vanished.
I believe I've had visitations by my grandmother in my dream state also. I asked her if she was ok now (because she had diabetes and a really bad
disabled leg) which she replied she was fine now with no concerns. I have to add I only have/had these 'visitations' after arguments in the past
with my Mother - my grandmothers daughter of course.
Now going back to the Lords Prayer experience, I've heard off psychics that during a funeral, family members who have 'crossed to the other side'
gather also, for whatever reason. Maybe to witness the event or to take the spirit with them in safety? I've also heard that what I experienced has
happened to many others because of the amount of entities and energy gathering in the room as the funeral or gathering is taking place. Is this
correct? I could have been lightheaded because of the traumatic event (I'm trying to think level headed here for the skeptics), but the fact my
cousin experienced exactly the same holds some weight to my experience, and from the fact during my life I've experienced many weird things. I tend
to think I'm very 'open' and 'sensitive.'
So, do any ATS members here have possible explanations or theories? Any more questions regarding what happened you would like advanced explaining?
I've tried my best to cover all aspects, but I need answers by more experienced psychics maybe, or people more experienced in the field of spirits
What made me feel dizzy, light headed, blurry eyed, wobbly, and hot? Was it the combination of energy from 'visitations?' (I must stress again, the
sensations only happened during the speaking of the Lords Prayer. I felt fine before and after the funeral for the entire day.) Or was it the power of
the Lord Prayer being chanted by people/family at a tragic time? I'm not a Christian - I don't believe in any religion, so excuse my ignorance if
the Lords Prayer actually holds 'power.' Could anyone verify if it does also? That would be great.
Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy reading my experience.
