Do you believe in the supernatural? Do you think that anyone has ever tried to contact you or send you signs from the other side?

Anne the word says "Not to marvel at this because the hour is coming in which the dead will resurrect to life".Yes the dead will hear Jesus Christ`s voice and will rise.

Hi Kathy:

Kathy, I'm so so sorry about your sister. I too just lost mine at age 54 and of breast cancer as well this past December so can feel for what you must be going through. This cancer thing is such an awful disease! How old was your sister if I may ask? Donna had had it for 10 years and just kept spreading throughout her since her chemo drugs weren't really working just keeping the cancer at bay the best they could. Unfortunately, her latest catscan didn't show this huge spread sheet tumour around her stomach so finally when her surgeon found it, it was too late. It was really heartbreaking for all of us. Anyways, I am still hoping she'll contact me one day and I trust she will and I think your sister will too.

God Bless you and your family,

Anne
Dear Randolph
I just finished reading what you had written about your loss. I am so sorry you lost your wife of 44 years, I know she was your best friend and I know in my heart how much it hurts. I lost my son in November of 2009 he was 24, but like you he was my best friend my only friend, and now I am alone living my life without him, I have an old pair of shoes he would wear and never change his socks, I know that sounds gross, but guess what I still try to smell his smell anything of his I would smell, I touch his things, I try to find whatever I can to bring me comfort, anyway what I am trying to say is when your ready to take the clothes off the vacumn cleaner you will be okay, but its only when your ready, as for me I am not ready to quit smelling my son's shoes....I will keep you in my prayers, I myself can hardly wait to go to heaven so I can be with my son....And I know you probley can't wait either. Everyone tells me its a glorious place, a happy place...

Ii to all and hugs too. I have wrote a couple of postings and it has been a while since I have written anything. My wife of 44 years died during a nap,I heard her die and saw her dead. She was my pal. Its been 13 and a half months and I never will be the same again.Her pants and shirt are still on the vacuum cleaner handle where she put them to take a nap. They will always remain there. I have sniffed her scent completely out of her shirt but have her perfume bottle that she used. Being in Indiana during tornado season we have some candles in glass containers to use for when the power goes out. I was smelling her one night and tried to figure out where her smell was coming from. And, guess what ? Her smell is coming out of a used candle I had placed on a small bookcase and just left there. If you sniff it you smell her. All I have to say to people is, hey,smell this. Immediately they say,its mom,its grandma, its LouAnn. Wow, I have been blessed by having this. Anyone who has smelled the flower scent of an angel visit will know what I mean. Except I have my wifes smell coming from a used candle. Just wanted to share this.
Karen, am so sorry for your loss. We will all do what we do when we are ready. There sure is no set schedule for the things we do or not do. Only we can deal with it. Life certainly wont be the same and at least on this site we can share our grief and emotions. I have no words of encouragement but I do offer hugs. Those are good. What I do have of my wife are my treasures. Pictures, her singing at kareoke recorded on CD and of course, her smell on a used candle. I dont have her which was my life and my reason for being.Now my life is sadness and loneliness. ENJOY THE DAY !!
I most definately believe. When my dad died suddenly almost 6 years ago, I became obsessed with mediumship and I read everything I could find, finally I read the most wonderful book by Patrick Mathews. Its called Never Say Goodbye. After that I started paying attention to things and asking for signs. My dad died 2 weeks after my birthday, that was the last time I saw him. The next year I told him I just needed to know he was with me and a rose was the sign I would look for. I had already gotten all the presents from every one in my life and had seen nothing to do with roses, later that day, almost 5pm there was a knock on my door and it was a delivery person with flowers for me and yes there was 1 rose in the flowers, they were from my sister and when I called her she said she did not specify any certain flowers just something pretty, when I told her what sign I asked for we both know they were from her and my dad. I took a picture of it and it hangs in my house today!
I also asked that he make a certain picture crooked, about a week later my roommate and I were sitting in the living room talking and she got up and started dusting, which she NEVER did the whole time we lived together, when she went by that particular photo, she ran the duster over it and it went crooked(I am a photographer so I had tons of photos and that was the only one that went crooked) she didn't even realize it. I left it hanging crooked!
I also will get a whiff of the cologne he liked every once in a while when there is no man around me.
Donna
I to look for signs that pertain to my son who died November 13 2009, so almost 7 months, one thing that I have noticed is my dog sometimes at night she acts so strange from growling and whinning in the middle of the night to start licking my face to wake me up its usually around 12:30am to 1:30am, its something because she has never acted like that in the middle of the night, I also went to a medium, just once, just to try to see if anything was true, I miss my son so much that i have come to realize he was my only friend, i have never had a friend like the friendship of my son, it was a wounderfull experience. i want to read that book maybe I will see things a little bit brighter.

That is so beautiful, .....you KNOW it was him...you felt it..

My boyfriend always felt bad when I would get upset and start crying. If we were having a serious conversation and my eyes started to fill with tears he would make a funny face at me til I either smiled or laughed. After his sudden death on Christmas Eve morning he came to me in his way. 2 days after he died, I was on the phone with my friend and was hysterically crying. All of a sudden I dropped my signal on my cell phone. When I looked at my phone, I had 3 bars. Every time I cried on the phone I dropped my call but it never happened when I wasn't crying. Then later that night at work (we worked together at the same bar), I started breaking down again. As I cried the light outside the front door, where I was working, began to flicker. I stopped crying. Later when I started crying again, the light flickered again. The light switch is in the office where no one was at. That light has never flickered before or since then. I believe it was his way to make me stop crying since he couldn't make a face at me....may sound stupid but that's what I believe.
I believe in the supernatural so much so that I really want to find a medium or someone that can communicate with my son on the other side. If anyone knows of someone like that I would be so very grateful to get their contact information. I just want to tell him goodbye. I live in Fort Worth, Texas. Thank you and thank God for this web site.

Karen, I am so sorry for your loss, as much as I suffered losing my dad, I could not imagine having to live if I lost my son. my heart goes out to you. I had a medium reading also, if you find one that is legit, it is very helpful. to make sure they are legit, they should only want to know your first name and they shouldn't ask you questions but give you information and you validate whether it makes sense to you. If you can, the book is so helpful, I recommend it to anyone who has suffered a loss.

search online but be careful and make sure they are legit. they should only want to know your first name and they should not ask you any questions only give you information and ask you to validate whether it makes sense to you, most will do a phone reading and tape it for you. thats what I did and I have no doubt she was in contact with my dad. and sweetie, you don't have to say goodbye to your son, he will always be with you and you can always talk to him! Read this book, it is by Patrick Mathews and its called Never Say Goodbye.

This message is to Genieva:: I have seen a pyschic medium twice since my son died on August 9,2009.I have had dreams of him,even received messages from him.This woman is wonderful,the real deal.She validated all for me She even told me things that did not make sense at the time but shortly after I had the "aha: moment when I knew exactly what she was talking about.She is Philadelphia,where I am but she does readings by phone.You can also email her or whatever you feel most comfortable with.My son was only 18 and died under very mysterious circumstances.People who were there that night continually lied about the circumstances,I always felt that also.I did alot of investiagating myself as well as my husband.My husband could not take alot of the truth so to speak, it was our worst fears come true.I saw this woman who came highly recommended 2 weeks after he died and we had a very long session,in fact we went over the time which she did not charge me for.I was still in shock at the time but my untution was screaming that we had yet to hear the truth.I felt as though I needed to see her to confirm my suspicions or for her to tell me what we were being told was the truth.I knew certain people lied to us over and over.They even lied to the Police.The Police are still investigating but we were told soon,action would be taken.After the first session with her,I went away actually feeling very good which is a very strange thing to say considering the news she gave me was absoultely devasting.My worst suspicions were verified by her.I have always been able to predict and verify situations on my own.I realized I had this so called gift from a very small girl but I chose to supress it unless I really felt I needed to warn someone or at times comfort someone.In fact,one of the worst comments that was ever made to me after my sons death came from my own mother.As we were standing in front of my sons casket crying,my mother turns to me and says"What happened here.You have always been pyschic all your life?Why didn;t you see this coming"?I was speechless and just looked at her and shook my head.My other 2 sons were also standing there and everyone stood waiting for me to respond.I just shook my head and replied,I never saw this coming,Never in a million years!!My husband shot my mother a disapproving look and place his arms around me as I sobbed.It just hurt so much what she said because she said what I had been actually thinking since that fateful night.I was so overwhelmed with grief and in shock and I had asked myself the same question over and over with no answer.Shortly after we buried him,i start experiencing events that I knew it had to be him.I kept quiet as not to alarm my husband but as things continued and seemed to get even more noticable,he finally said something to me and I was stunned to know he was experiencing some of the same things and also hearing things as I would.My husband has always known I am a true believer in the spirit world and I always surrounded myself not really intentionally but with people who had the same beliefs and even some that had the same gift.My grandmother as well as my greataunt were known for their abilities,never for money as I was taught from them,it was a gift and never to charge money.Some people do as this is their livilhood and that is very acceptable to me.I in no way compare myself to some of the great pyschic and spiritual advisors that you hear of or watch on TV.My ability was my secret and only people very close to me were evenaware.I felt comfort from the different occurrences,such as I sometimes felt as something brushed by my cheek.My son,when he came in the door,everytime,would call for me and find me and always hugged me and kissed me on the cheek.It was something he always did.never did he ever walk in the house without doing that.My husband and I soon realized that we were both experiencing some of the same strange occurrences,not the kiss,as he only did that to me.We sometimes late at night could hear movement in his room as if he was there.One night it was so vivid and clear,we actually both got out of bed to go to his room and of course he was not there,but the smell of his cologne filled his room.There were and still are so many things that both my husband and i are experiencing.We live in an old Victorian,over 150 yrs old and from the day we moved in,strange things occurred but never did any of my family fear this.In fact my son Tim,who died,had a very strong belief in spirits and was always fascinated by friends of ours that would come over and speak of different situations and also some read tea leaves as well as tarot cards.My brother also has the gift and was extremely good,extremely accurate in his readings of others but it was all for entertainment but sometimes a person really needed and wanted help from the other side.My brother does not engage any more as he had a extremely intense experience with a friend of ours friend who came to visit and requested a tarot card reading.I will never forget that night either,very intense.I feel kind of strange writing all of this because it is something I feel very private and also there are people that simply do not believe and can be extremely vocal about it.Truthfully,it gives me comfort knowing that my son is still with me and other loved ones that thru the years have made their presence known.I have always been the type of person who would rather know if something bad is going to happen than be caught off guard.My son and I had MANY conversations about the spirit world and made apromise to each other that if possible if one of us had left this world,the other would try to communicate and give comfort.There are so many incidents that I know were signs from my son and my husband believes now 100% that there is something there after we leave this earth.All of my family and extended family believe this to be true.The really interesting thing though was ,other people extremely close to my son were experiencing the same kind of things.One person after another began telling us stories of what would occur when they went to the cementary and the very strange part of that was the same things were occurring to different people who relucantedly shared with us,afraid we would think they were crazy.Different people,different times,different in every way were all having these unexplainable things happening to them.No one was sharing with anyone else but shared with my husband and I.When you start hearing the same story over and over,it is totally unbelievable but it was happening over and over.For the most part,people took comfort in these occurences chosing to believe it was Tim sending them signs.I and my husband wholeheartedly believe it also,There is never a day that goes by that we do not think of him and cry and yet at times,a peaceful feeling comes over us and a subtle sign like the light going on anf off by itself.A radio suddenly turns on and plays one of his favorite songs.How can you explain all of these things?You can;t and even the worst skeptics of the spirit world are true believers now.There is so much to tell but I can not evn begin to explain or tell all that has occurred.So getting back to this pyschic and medium,I felt the intense need to go back to her,after all it had been almost 9 months and unexplainable things were still occurring,dreams I had of him were extremely vivid and detailed.One of my last dreams I had,he was in it and was clear as day and he told me all this information about his death and the most shocking was that he gave me messages to deliver to certain people.I was astounded and had to sit on it for several days not sharing this with anyone,even my husband.After 3 days,I felt driven and it was like he was pressuring me to follow thru with these certain people that I did not evn really know.he had lived overseas for about 2 years and went to HS there because of his superior athletic ability and he traveled the world,He had a amazing and full life for a 18 yr old What he experienced and accomplished,some people go thru their whole life and do not do what he did or travel all over the world.He was my youngest,my baby,he was a true gift to us and still to the many people he touched in his short life.The night before his funeral,they held a candlelight vigil in a nearby park,over 650 people attended.It was amazing.People came in from Europe to attend his funeral and were all in shock and grief stricken.It was trully impressive and to this day,no one has forgotten.His birthday was just 2 weeks ago,he owuld have been 19 .Our whole family is devasted and still overcome with grief.I find comfort as well as my husband with the little signs he shows us.They have never stopped but in fact seem to occur more and are becoming more detailed and involved.It has become more intensified and more often.My husband never wants to talk about my son or anything that led up to his death as well as my other 2 sons.It hurts at times because I really feel like I need more support and comfort from them and I am not receiving it unless on their terms.This is the way it always was though,when anything ever happened in our family or friends lives that was tragic or sad,it was always my youngest son Tim who always seemed to know the right words or the right actions to take.He was wise way beyond his years,it always amazed me his ability to connect with people and be able to have them share their darkest thoughts with him.He always had a kind word for everybody.In his eyes,strangers were just friends he never met.He used to scare me alittle at times because he was always friendly to everyone and had no fear of anyone and sometimes,he really should have been more cautious.He wanted to be a doctor and he would have made a excellent one because he had that compassion and empathy that makes a great doctor.He would have not only healed their bodies but he would have addressed their mental outlook.His love for people and animals were truly remarkable.So after saying all of this,it does not really surprise me that even in death,he continues to comfort and support those who are in so much pain from his sudden unexpected death.One night very late I was sitting alone in my living room.My husband upstairs sleeping and I just alone with my thoughts and grief.I heard his voice as clear as day comforting me and telling me he loved me and he did not want me crying anymore,He was worried about my health and how this was affecting it.I clearly heard his words and his plea to go back to the pyschic I had gone to so she could verify to me that what my husband and I had been experiencing was really him,not our imagination.Maybe some people will think it was what I wanted to hear,somehow my mind was telling me these words to help me.I was determined to remain strong on the outside to everyone but inside I was barely holding it together.My husband always remarking that I comforted everyone else but who comforts me?

Again in response to genevia,I never intended to write all of that but felt compelled.I felt as though I should write to you as I can highly recommend this woman who has helped me immensely and has validated all that I have been expericencing.She truly has the gift to communicate,no doubt in my mind.She is widely known throughout the country.She has been on talk shows,has a new radio show that you can call in and ask one question.She does private readings at her home 1/2 hr sessions and also hour long session/She does readings by phone,in fact,she does free readings to the soldiers over in Iraq and Afganistan.She also receives emails with questions.She has been on the show Pychic Injmvestigators.She has helped the police and is always involved with different cases when her help is needed.She has been doing this for a living now for 30 years.She is a nurse but does not practice nursing any longer becasue of her scheldule now.She is a very honest,admirable person with a heart of gold.She really takes her time which each client and at times does followup phone calls just because she really cares and want to see how the person is doing.As you can imagine,people may have a different reactions.She always put you at ease.She does not ask you any questions,she has you ask the questions and answers them and sometimes things do not click in your head that you know it to be true but later it always comes to you and you smile.I know she has helped me immensely as she told me things that only my son and I would know.She verified some of the incidents that were happening to me such as the brushing of my cheek.It is very intense and emotional experience with her because you know she is really communicating with your loved one.When I saw her again a few weeks ago,it had been almost 9 months since my sons death,I actually would have goosebumps as I knew what she was saying was 100 percent accurate and there was no way that she could have known any of it.I felt so comforted when I left her home at first.I felt so uplifted from it all.I wanted so much to talk to my husband but he did not want to hear but I let slip some things to him just to prove her right, and he would look at me with tears streaming down his face.My son actually had a few messages for his father but he was only able to handle one before he stopped me because it was too painful and still so raw.He is now a true believer and little by little he is asking me questions and he knows that this info could only have come from one person and that would be my son.If anyone is truly serious about seeing or talking with her,you can send me a private email as I do not feel as though it is right to have her name and phone number out there on this site.She is a very private person who does do this for a living but I do not think she would appreciate me splashing all her info all over the place.So again,if anyone is really serious and has made up their mind that this is something they would like to do or they need to do,.just let me know and I will be glad to share all her info with you.I had to really think about it even responding to Genevias plea as I do not want to be a walking advertisement for her,she can certainly do that herself.If this is something you really want to do and you feel it will bring you comfort,I would be most happy to recomend her as there are many,many frauds out there that just take your money and continue to reel you in for more.She has never done that to me nor the enormous amount of people that she helps confidentially.I highly recommend her if her gift is what will give you comfort and peace.All of us on this website are all grieving and looking for that inner peace so we may be able to go on with our lives.I will never say we get over it,we never will,but somehow we are able to work through all the pain and sorrow.I can speak for myself,I feel so much better,I even have some good days so to speak where I feel at peace but there will never be for me a day that I do not miss him and love him so much.It brings me comfort knowing he is still with us,watching over us.It amazes me how much he knows of what is going on in our private moments.I know after the last visit with her,later that night,I became overwhelmed with it all,it was such a gift.She also recommends a wonderful book to read by this excellent author who specializes in grief and also communication skills with your beloved .This book she tells me offers comfort and also ways to improve your chances of communicating yourself with the departed and signs to look for to know it is them and not just some figment of your imagination.God Bless you all! I wish you all peace and comfort.
