Do you Believe in the Supernatural? My True Ghost Story!

Happy Halloween 2013!
My kids have been excited about Halloween since last Halloween!  They actually started preparing Halloween decorations over one month before Halloween.  If past Halloweens have taught me anything, it has been to get photos of the kids early on in the day, before we're all racing out the door to start trick-or-treating!  Here's my "morning" photo of my kids today, before their Halloween school event.  Some of the kids will be wearing different Hallowe'en costumes tonight, the chameleons!

Do You Believe in the Supernatural?  My True Ghost Story!
I ask you this question, "Do you believe in ghosts?" because something "fantastical" happened to me last year, and I'll let you be the judge.  Read on to hear my true ghost story:

I was blessed to know my great-grandmother while I was growing up, until I was a teenager.  She passed away peacefully in her sleep--while watching tv in a chair--at age 96-years old.  I never dreamed about her, until last year--almost 30 years later.  

In my dream my great-grandmother was in my bedroom, looking for a lost photo of herself. She was adament that only I could help her find it. I insisted that I could not. She insisted again, and then looked down on my bed and smiled: there on my bed was the photo that she sought. She left my room, satisfied.

Did My Great-Grandma Really Come to Me in Dreams?

When I woke up from the dream, I decided to call my grandfather (my great-grandmother's son) and my grandmother to tell them about the dream.  I hadn't spoken to them in about one month's time.  My grandmother answered the phone, and when she heard that I had a dream about my great-grandmother, asked my grandfather to listen in on the second phone line.  I told them the story just as I have told you, above.  I waited to hear their response, but there was none.  I asked them what they thought of the dream.

My grand-mother was the first to respond.  "Jenna", she responded, "I just took down a photo of your great-grandmother yesterday.  I had kept that photo up for over 25-years, but took it down for the first time yesterday, as I noticed that the photo of your great-grandmother had slipped down in its frame.  I was meaning to rehang the photo today."

My grand-father was incredulous about the dream and kept running over the details of the dream with me again and again.  Yes, I told him, my great-grandmother had come to me looking for her lost photo.  Yes, I repeated, she thought that only I could help her find it.  Yes, I said again, the picture of my great-grandmother in the dream had been located on my bed.  In my dream, my great-grandmother had smiled and seemed satisfied when the photo was where she knew it would be.

As I concluded the conversation with my grand-parents, I couldn't help feeling chilled to the bone as an eery aura swept over me.  I made my grand-parents promise to rehang my great-grandmother's photo that very same day, and they promised that they would.  

After I hung up the phone with my grand-parents, I considered that I had done my part and delivered my great-grandmother's message to her son.  Her photo is now hanging, once again, in its usual place on my grandparent's wall.  I had helped her find the lost photo of herself.

What do you think of my True Ghost Story?  Do you think it was a coincidence, or that my Great-Grandmother was really delivering a message through me?  Do you believe in ghosts?

  2. Ohhh that's so interesting!! I truly do believe that they give us signs and find ways of communication, including through dreams! I've had eery dreams with my Grandmother as well and things happen that only she could have been a part of. I totally believe! At least you know she's watching over :)

  6. Wow I think that is amazing and you are lucky she came to you in a dream and that she chose you to deliver her message. I don't think it was a ghost story, but definitely spirit related :)

  11. Nothing surprises me, my Mother passed away in Nov. 11/98 & in February 99 she wok me up from a sound sleep by calling my name as she always would before. Sometimes at night she would become confused & come to our Bedroom door, crack it open a bit & call my name. This is what happened. Never happed again, & I do wish I knew what she had wanted.

  18. I have many stories to tell and completely believe 100% that your dream was a message for your grandfather. God often will send us dreams just like those and they are always such a blessing .... messages from Heaven really are the best kind!

  19. I have many stories to tell and God often sends us messages just like that one through our dreams. It was something that your grandfather needed to hear and I have no doubt whatsoever that it meant a lot to him. Messages from Heaven are the best kind! *Hugs*

  20. I don't think it was coincidence, I do believe in that stuff!! After we bought our house and got a dog, she would be looking at something (or someone) in the middle of the living room and just bark, it would creep me out. Also, the one light in the basement would come on once in a while by itself. All that was about maybe 5 years ago, nothing has happened since.

  21. Yes I do and I also had an experience so there is no doubt in my mind.

  22. I definitely believe in ghosts, I've had encounters since childhood. Where I live now, we even have a ghost cat, an orange tabby that loves to be around my oldest son.

  23. Wow. I think anything is possible. Our family believes that my baby sister is constantly playing messenger and giving us signs that she is still here. And it is part of our tradition that if a relative from long ago visits in our dream, we have to find out why and try to fulfill their wishes.

  24. Wow, that is freaky, but at the same time soothing to know she is with you.
