I Have Seen Ghosts
I have never thought that I would ever encounter the supernatural in my life. But when I did, it affected me so much, and changed my whole perspective of life and the afterlife.
I have lived in this apartment in NJ for four years. During this time, I have seen dark figures darting across my peripheral vision. Thought I just imagined it.
I work from home and one day, I was playing my stereo. It kept shutting off. I checked if there is a power outage, but there was none.
I was working on my computer one night, and something touched my elbow, and there was no one there. I was in the bedroom one time, and heard a whisper in my ear and ran out of the bedroom.
Then one night, I saw my first real ghost encounter. I woke up in the middle of the night, and opened my eyes and saw this white figure of a man looking at me. He was wearing a suit. He was all white, like a statue in the cemetery. I closed my eyes again, and opened, still there and when I looked up he was looking at me and smiled. I closed my eyes and when I opened, he was gone.
Then again one night, around 12:30 am. I woke up, looked at the alarm clock and then, right next to the armoire, was the head of a woman floating in midair. Her hair was nicely done, and she was wearing a beaded necklace. She seemed like a 1950's woman. She was there for about seven seconds and then she disappeared. She looked so sad as she was looking at the bedroom window. From that point on, I knew that there is a spiritual realm, an afterlife.
I became very sad, as I questioned my very existence. I believe what I saw is something that is not supposed to be seen, and somehow my existence and their existence crossed.
I became quite ill, both mentally and physically after this experience. It is something I never want to see again.
I now appreciate life more, and the people around me. Our time here on this earth is precious, and we must show our love and kindness to each other as much as we can.
I asked a psychic for advice about my experience and was told to put sea salt around the house and bathe in sea salt every now and then. I also smudged the apartment as per the psychicís advice. I now wear a rosary around my neck when I go to sleep.
