The passing of my Grandmother opened my eyes to see there is a heaven. Ok I have always known and believed in ghosts and spirits but in the back of my
mind I always wondered if heaven really did exist.
My Grandmother was a small built lady but one made from iron, she was strong and had the biggest heart I had ever known. She loved all of her children
and Grandchildren very much, we was all very close. Well I do not want to go into telling much about her life because that is unfair to her and other
members of my family. The point I want to make is that she became a legend to me just like my Grandad is now a legend. They both along with my trainer
Terry drive me from there place in heaven to become a fearless fighter for I know if the worse happened and I passed away in the ring, cage or street
I know I will rise up and be with those three people. You probably ask yourself why am I so sure of heaven?
Well, my Grandmother fell ill with cancer in 2003,
I went to visit her in hospital with my family, when I walked onto her ward and see her laying there I could hardly recognise her. My heart sank so
low and I felt a deep emotional sadness inside, as I knew this would be the very last time I would see her. She had no energy, and had to be fed by my
mum or one of my aunts. The doctor said that she only had 1 more night left at the most.
I left after saying goodbye and kissing her on the cheek. I felt really sad knowing that was it. I would never see her again after this. The next
morning my mum returned to the hospital (my mum and aunts took turns in staying over night at the hospital). My Dad took me and my brother and sister
to the hospital later that evening and as we entered the hospital I had this overwhelming feeling that something was different.
We entered the ward, and I could hear laughing. We came up to my Grandmother’s bed to find her sitting up in her bed laughing and joking with my mum
and my aunts. I was in a strange kind of shock but did my best to hide the shock. I was in disbelief to see her with energy, and singing when just one
night before she was lying on the bed almost lifeless.
When my family and me got home that night my mum told me that, that afternoon my Grandmother told my mum that she had a dream. She dreamed she was
walking down this pathway, the birds were singing and there were many of her favourite flowers. She explained that she walked along the path and it
led to the clouds and a tunnel. She could hear voices near the end of the tunnel and as she got closer a voice told her ‘no you must go back, it is
not your time just yet’. She then said that’s when she woke up and felt a craving for some tomato juice.
That week she seemed to have so much energy, she would walk on her own to the bathroom. Eat and drink all of her favourite things, and sing. She would
tell me about a dream she had. She see green lights and everybody was having a party but she was not invited so had to leave.
She seemed to be like her old self again, she even looked like how she did before she got ill. This was all just to fool us because in reality her
kidneys were failing. A few things happened and my aunt took her home. She lived her last 3 days which was on a weekend at her home in her bedroom.
On the day they took her home, I had these strange visions. Thinking I would see my Grandad (the one who passed away when I was young) out the corner
of my eye. I would look again but nothing or noone would be there.
It was now Monday 17th October, I was helping my Dad on one of his jobs. We was outside, I was cutting steel but stopped every now and then to look up
at the sky. It was a beautiful day. Sunny, blue skies but quite a few clouds too. It seemed very calm. I had this feeling that today was the day my
Grandmother would go. I had this strange feeling come over me later that morning around 10am. I went to the bathroom and as I was washing my hands I
heard my Grandmothers voice in my head. She said ‘You are all good children and I love you all very much’. I thought this was odd and my heart
began to race as I walked back to the steel. I then noticed my Dad on his phone, he nodded at me and my heart sank. She had passed away.
After things were sorted, my mum came home and she told me a few things that made me think about life in a different way. She told me that my
Grandmother was lying in bed asleep motionless. She then opened one eye and looked all across the room at all my aunts and my uncle then closed her
eyes. She then woke up and said to my mum that she felt bad. She felt dizzy as if she was flying. She fell asleep again, only to wake up slightly look
around the room at everyone and then look to the left side to the window and say ‘John is that you?’ the light flickered in the room, she closed
her eyes quickly and stopped breathing. John is the name of my Grandad who passed away when I was a child.
This leads me to believe that when she was lying on the hospital bed, God gave her a second dose of energy so she could see every member of her family
and say goodbye. Then on the day she was meant to pass on, God sent my Grandad to meet her and take her to the other side.
Since the passing of my Grandmother, I have had some strange dreams. One of them dreams was of me sitting in my Grandmothers house in her favourite
armchair but it was not her chair, the chair was the one in my house. As I sat in this chair I looked down into her cabinet and noticed 3 tins and on
top of the tins was a photo. I woke up and told my mum about this dream and we thought nothing of it. Until later, my mum was looking for her sewing
kit as she needed to sew something. She could not find her sewing kit. (she kept the kit in an old sweet tin that my grandparents gave to her). She
looked everywhere for the tin, then she looked underneath her bed and found 3 tins and on top of the tin was a photo. The photo had me, my parents, my
brother and sister and also my Grandmother. It was a photo that my Grandmother used to talk about many times, especially before she passed away.
I have had many dreams that involved my Grandmother, and they came true. I have also had many supernatural experiences that I also believe involves
Just to add... my belief in God is slightly different to what most believe in, and I am not a christian or Catholic.
