Michelle Arrose: A Teacher's Journey to Literary Success: Is There Life After Death?: We often find ourselves pondering the answers to questions that are unknown. This question has repeated itself over and over again. Is t...
Sometimes, late at night I hear a woman humming downstairs. I tell myself that it is my imagination. I never check it out as it is a faint distant humming sound in the night. To see the unknown is ten times scarier than to imagine it. Many years ago I went to a psychic for fun. She told me that I have a gift to see the unknown. I laughed at her and told her that I definitely choose not to see it. However, unfortunately after my grandparents died, I felt a slight touch on my arm, hand leg, or somewhere just as they were passing. I did not know it at the time, but always had an eerie feeling when I felt their touch. After my grandmother had passed whom I was very close with, I asked out loud that I never want to feel it again. Thankfully, the touch has stopped.
I am sure that as you are reading this blog, you might be thinking, "what a nut job. I don't believe it." If it were me reading it, I may think the same way. I think we each have the ability to see things if we choose to. If we don't want to and block ourselves from seeing, then that is our right. I, personally do believe in the unknown. However, they call it unknown for a reason. My uncle has had many dreams of his father visiting him after he passed, telling him messages. One message was when my grandfather showed him a closet that he should open. When my uncle woke up, he opened the closet and found money that my grandfather wanted my grandmother to have.
I do believe our relatives watch over us from afar. Recently, I had a vision of my friend who passed a few years ago. She was standing at the bottom of her steps smiling as if she were saying hello. I never went to her home, but told one of my friends about my vision. The way I described the place she was standing sounded like her home to my friend who did visit her many times.
Recently I became engrossed in the show, Twin Peaks about a girl Laura Palmer who was killed. Detective Cooper played by Kyle Mac Lachlan is sent to Twin Peaks in order to solve who murdered Ms. Palmer. It seems that he has the gift and is able to get supernatural messages from Laura. One night Detective Cooper has a dream where Laura speaks to him in a cryptic manner saying that she feels she knows Laura and sometimes her arms bend back. Have you ever dreamt of a relative that has passed? It is ingenious the way David Lynch, the producer/director painted this picture so realistic where the deceased is not able to fully have a conversation, but yet they are their to guide and express their view in a subliminal way. I believe this to be true. Years ago, one of my grandmother's came to me in a dream and told me that
If you believe or choose not to believe in the supernatural unknown world, then that is your choice. However, if you have a dream from a relative that is no longer with you, listen carefully to their cryptic, mysterious words as maybe you are being blessed with a gift that you have been given. They maybe sending you an important message or just letting you know that they are still there for you. We don't know the true meaning of the universe and its uncertainty. However, there is nothing wrong in wondering and believing. Sometimes knowing the loss of a loved one makes it easier to believe that they are out there guiding and protecting you in your life.
