I thought it might be interesting to see how many people here believe they have had some sort of sign/signal from a loved one that has died, that
makes them think the loved one is still around.
Here are mine, please be kind, I do not know for a "fact" they were real, but they sure felt like something beyond coincidence to me...
(1) My Father died nearly 4 yrs ago. On the morning before the funeral, I was at home sitting in the chair he used to sit in when he visited. Out of
the blue, a sense of him being in the room overwhelmed me, it felt just like it did when he was physically present. This caught my attention enough,
but then just seconds after that the electricity in the house shut down by itself....every single appliance that was on was off, no lights worked, nor
the toaster, tv, etc. I checked the house all over, same thing. Went to the fuse box - as we all know, when there's a power cut, the switches trip so
that some/all are in "OFF" postion and you have to flick them back manually to "ON". Not one single swith in the box was in "OFF" position, not
was the main control switch.
So, I phoned the local estate agents 2 mins around the corner - was there a power outage in the village ? NO
I then wondered if any neighbour had the problem....opened the door to look around and spotted the old lady across the road on her doorstep....called
across, NO, she had no problem. I mentioned it was my Dad's funeral today and it was all very strange as the power supply seemed fine. She didn't
say much in response to this, and we both shut our doors.
Within about 2 mins of me coming in, all the power returned BY ITSELF. Then, the door knocked - the lady across the road came to see me, in retrospect
she must have been intrigued by my feelings of it maybe being my Dad letting us know he was around....because she stood there telling me then of a
time when she was shopping in town and saw her dead husband as plain as she could see me. They embraced, then he disappeared !!! Her story coupled
with the strange electrical activity was just too much of a coincidence for me. But there was a 3rd part to this too -
Across town, in the house where my Father had grown up, his mother and brother were themselves getting ready for the funeral. In a chat with my
uncle's partner later that day, I told her about the odd electrical stuff and she was quite intrigued because THEY TOO had had, "weird stuff going
on with the electrics " that morning, with lights going off and on by themselves !!!!!!!!!
(2) Around a week after the funeral, I turned on the radio for the 1st time. The song playing was "my girl is mad at me" by Madness. Yes, I was very
angry with my Dad as he died through suicide. So, funny coincidence that song
(3) Around the same period, the HI FI turned itself on by itself once. Another time, a CD that was playing began to rewind all by itself then resume
play all by itself.....twice in a row. It had never done it before and never did it again. I remember me and my partner just staring at one another,
(4) A few months later, I'm in the bath crying and quietly raging at my Dad, feeling really really angry with him. Out loud I challenged him to prove
(again) he could hear me, send me a sign he was still around. I came downstairs a little later to where Sean was watching TV with the door closed. We
were sleeping in the L.room at the time. I didn't talk to him about anything and we went to sleep not long after. In the middle of the night I awoke,
then nearly at just the same time so did Sean. He proceeded to tell me he'd just had a dream about my Dad "which wasn't like a dream, but more like
when you are visiting someone". In the dream, my Dad was apparantly not happy I was so angry and told Sean to "tell her to stop being so angry". He
said my Dad looked healthy, peaceful, calm, younger and went on to talk about how "it's all about love" while putting his arms around Sean and Me
in this "dream". Sean was quite affected by the visit, he hasn't dreamt of my Dad since .
(5) Recently - in my sons room is a toy garage. It makes sounds when you press it. It never normally makes sounds unless you press it. i am sat the
other side of the room with my son when all of a sudden the garage makes a "beep beep" sound. Me and Jake just looked at each other in surprise. It
then did it again, at which point I wondered, "is that Dad". I asked this aloud, and the garage RESPONDED with a "brum brum" sound this time , by
which time I was falling over myself with a kind of nervous shock. It was actually Jake's bed time at this time, plus I felt a little self conscious
talking out loud like this with Sean a floor down, so I quietly whispered that it was lovely to have the sign, thanks for visiting, but I had to go
now". It made a 4th sound immediately after this then has ever since remained silent............. !!??!!
I would add that the night this happened proceeded a "down time" I'd been having for a couple of days...I'd been sat the day before crying in the
garden missing my Dad. There have been other "signs" like this, and they invariably happen when I've been feeling lowest and wanting my Dad . He
seems to always find a way to reply to me.
I've also had loads of dreams about him and one "visitation" which took place in sleep, but was not a dream....2 nights after his death I also
experienced a telepathic communion with him which jolted me out of my sleep and had me choking on my own breath, so stunned I was by it....one hell of
a powerful mind-mind experience like I've nevr had before in my life or since .....but I've filled enough space here already so will leave things
here for now.
Yes, none of what I say I can "prove" but I am inclined to be a rational person and try to factor in other possibilities before deciding something
is a "sign". To me, these were connections from my Dad.
