I lived on a farm in Missouri when I was ten and use to collect indian arrow heads in the back pasture, closest to the woods.
At the time the woods by our pasture was around 400 acres, so it was a pretty dense forest. I wasn't allowed to go into the woods but sometimes here
and there I did.
Once I went into the forest and there was a clearing pretty far in. That is when I saw a platform on stilts with something wrapped in a blanket on
top. I did not come close enough to tell what it was but it was about the size of a person laid out. I saw it for a brief second (from far away) and
ran like hell. When I saw whatever it was it was like the air around me was wavy, like on a hot summer day, the way the asphalt gets. Except there
was no asphalt and while it was quite warm it wasn't a blazing hot day.
Below is a picture of what I saw. This picture is is a tad bit bigger as I was further away and not going to go any closer.
I was mad at myself the rest of the day because I was such a chicken and decided to go back and investigate.
I slipped away into the woods again the very next morning and the stilts, platform, blanket and whatever was wrapped in it were gone. The ground
looked like it had not been disturbed, it was the same clearing. Also for whateve it is worth, the air felt different that day than the day before.
I know I went back to the right spot because I ran straight back and ended up right at the last fence post. I looked all around that morning and
covered more ground than the previous day.
I've often wondered if I had encountered some kind of vortex and or time slip for just a brief second.
I was around 13 and still lived in Missouri. Use to take walks along the railroad track that went through a nice quiet desolate area. Trains rarely
There was a old train depot and as I approached it there was a old woman hanging a basket of flowers outside.
She waved to me and when I came closer she said it was a mighty hot day and would I care for some lemonaid.
I said yes and she showed me in. The depot turned house was small and very clean and neat.
There was another older lady, they were sisters. the only odd thing was the women were dress in simple long dresses like you see in old photographs.
We sat at a round table in the front room and had lemonaid and short bread cookies and talked about the weather and regular stuff. Can't remember
what we really talked about, but this incident didn't strike me as abnormal in any way. I do remember they spoke more plain and direct. Their
speech struck me a little odd, but I figured a lot of old people are odd so I didn't pay to much attention.
I didn't stay long but promised I would return. They were both very nice women.
I did return about two or three weeks later. The depot was gone. It was like it was never there.
On my way back home I stopped by and asked a lady that lived the closest to this area about the little train depot.
She said, there was no train depot there that she knew of and that she had lived in the general area for a long time.
I was in nursing in my early 20's and was taking a old lady's blood pressure. She was dying. Usually for a blood pressure you have a systolic
(upper reading) and diastolic (lower reading). Her blood pressure was 30 and that meant she was going to go any second.
I rush out to get the head charge nurse.
As I reached the doorway, the air around me contracted in and then expanded out. I knew I had felt her last breath.
I have felt the energy life force leave others before, but never felt a full body hug like this.
Again, I was in nursing and working the geriatric ward. It was Friday evening and I had been in charge of a really nice old lady for a couple weeks.
Her heart was failing and she was 83. She could not get out of bed at all, she was so weak, thin and frail. That Friday evening, I told her good
night, see you on Monday - take care.
I walked into work Monday evening and there she was sitting on a chair outside her room, she actually looked quite better. I got really nervous
because she was not suppose to be out of bed. I told her that we would have to get her back to bed and to not get up from the chair until I could get
another nurse to come back and help her back to bed. Now I touched her, I held her hands in my own. I touched and felt her.
She said, "Oh but I just wanted to say good bye to my special little nurse".
I told her, "please just stay seated, we'll be right back to help you to bed".
She smiled and said, "thank you".
I ran to the nurses station and told the two nurses to quickly help me get Mrs __ back to bed, she was sitting in the hallway.
They both looked at me and turned white with their eyes popping out.
The head nurse said, "Mrs ___ passed away this morning."
I turned around and looked down the hall. The chair was empty. I went into room 345 and the bed was empty and freshly made up.
After work, some of us would go out for a late night breakfast and as we were sitting around, we talked about what happened earlier. Both my friends
said that they thought I was a level headed, reality based person and they both believe that Mrs__ just wanted to say goodbye and thank me.
I have had unusual experiences all my life and believe there is more to this world than what we see, feel, hear, taste and can touch.
Because we are stuck in this three dimensional body, we're also confined to a certain range of frequencies and that limits most of us too.
