Yes, I saw a ghost. I freaking saw a ghost. Tons of you have asked me for updates so here’s the lo-down:
I woke just before midnight on Sunday, December 3, facing the right side of my bed. I immediately felt someone standing there so I jerked to the left and I saw a little boy. All in the fastest moment of my life I knew he was a ghost, I jumped out of my bed at 100 miles per hour, I sensed that this boy was innocent and curious, I sensed he was startled I woke up, and I started yelling at him. I was very scared and felt violated to find a stranger watching me sleep. The little boy backed up as I yelled at him three times: “What are you doing here?! Get out of here! Who are you?!” and he finally disappeared near the back stairwell of my home. I walked back to my bed and laid down, knowing somehow this boy would leave me alone for the rest of the night. Girly Girl was laying on my bed perked up and looking at me as if she sees this little boy all the time and I was the one acting odd. I closed my eyes then opened them again thinking “Holy shit, I just saw a ghost.”
I got down to thinking logically: “It was a ghost, not a person, therefore he cannot harm you.”
“You were sleeping so could it have been a dream?”
“Yes, it could’ve been a dream, except it wasn’t a dream…” so back to rationalizing…
“Did he feel evil? No, so you are safe.”
“You need to wake up early with Aspen so get some sleep.”
How the heck my logical mind overcame my creepy physical reality that night surprises me as I sit here and type.
Here’s some questions:
How can you be sure it wasn’t a dream?
Because it wasn’t. Never in my life have I sleep walked, hallucinated, had a dream cross over into reality (by the way, I wasn’t dreaming prior to the moment I woke up). I really got out of bed, I really yelled, and I really saw this boy.
What did he look like?
Kind of like a bad 3-D hologram. I could see through him. The colors weren’t vivid but he was in color, also it was dark in my room but since my eyes were adjusted and he was standing right next to me I could clearly make him out. He was a small-framed boy of about 6 or 7 but he felt like he was 7 or 8. He looked to be in good health. He was wearing clothes that didn’t stand out to me as being of a particular time period: a shirt with a small collar buttoned all the way up and normal pants or shorts. I didn’t really focus on the bottom part of his body since I was looking into his eyes. He had fair features, possibly blond or dirty blond hair that was short and out of his face, light eyes – maybe blue, green or light hazel. Overall he was a handsome little boy and well put-together in his everyday clothes.
How did he leave?
When I jumped out of bed I instinctively knew he was a ghost and from what I know about ghosts they are supposed to disappear. This wasn’t happening so I became more scared and more agitated. I think that maybe he didn’t disappear right away because he was also alarmed, so perhaps it took him a second to gather himself. He started fading away before disappearing completely near the top of my stairs (we have a staircase in my bedroom and this is where I was trying to push him so he would leave just like a human being would).
Why were you scared if he wasn’t evil?
Because there was a stranger standing next to my bed. Pretty self-explanatory if you ask me.
Do you feel sorry for him?
Kind of, yeah. Like I want his soul to move on but I feel scared and I don’t like feeling scared in my own home.
Why do you think he showed himself to you?
I’m not sure. But I do know that I’ve always been interested in the paranormal and as I’ve seen my psychic, Mystic Michaela, over the years I’ve become more intuitive and good at reading energies. So in this way perhaps I opened myself up to this. I also spoke with two other psychic mediums regarding this matter, Chip Coffey and Mimi the Psychic of the OC, and all three seem to agree that this boy is drawn to my being a mother and creating a loving house. (I’d like to take a second to pat myself on the back real quick! Ha!) Lastly, I’m pregnant. Apparently by carrying a life that’s halfway in the physical world and halfway in the spirit world it potentially opens you up to all kinds of stuff like this.
Do you think he’s asking for help?
Maybe. I am thinking about helping him to cross over.
Do you think Aspen has seen him?
100% yes. She has waved at him and regularly acknowledges a presence that I cannot see. This doesn’t bother me.
Do you think it was the soul of your unborn baby?
No. Believe it or not, this went through my mind in the moment I saw him and right away I knew this soul was a stranger to me. (Although he seemed to recognize me!)
Has anyone else had experiences with this boy?
Yes. We’ve known our house was innocently haunted by a little boy (according to Mystic Michaela) but when I saw the ghost boy I didn’t connect it right away. In the three and a half years we’ve lived in this home our light and fan in our master bedroom is constantly going on and off. It’s like Jimmy is playing a trick on me except he’s not. Our garage door has opened by itself. Jimmy has heard someone going up and down the stairs, one night when I was out of town someone got in bed with Jimmy! He said it was either a kid or a big dog but alas it was nothing but an imprint of a body. My 11 year old stepson, Landon, who once saw a shadow that spooked him, called me after seeing my series of videos and said he regularly dreams of this little boy and once saw him hiding in his closet. (We fact checked what we both saw and it seems to be the same boy.) Landon said he wasn’t scared but the boy seemed nervous. Landon seemed thrilled that he could finally share his experiences with someone who wouldn’t find him crazy!
What are you going to do?
So far I have been telling him that he has a mommy in the light who loves him so please go to the light. I lit a candle and blessed the rosaries I put on our bedposts. I bought a medallion of St Michael the Archangel for protection as well as St Benedict and have implored them to provide protection. I told him he is not allowed to touch me, show himself to me, or talk to me, but if he must stay around he can continue to do silly little things like change the music on Aspen’s toy or open a door, but that is it (this stuff doesn’t scare me). I bought sage and will use that to cleanse my home. I might even hire a medium to help him cross if I feel the need.
After sleeping with all the lights on, begging Jimmy to cut his trip short to come home to sleep with me, getting all Catholic with my rosaries and saying about a million Catholic prayers, I think I got this. I ain’t ‘fraid ‘a no ghosts. 🙂
