Okay, ladies and gents! The time has come for another installation of my ghostly experiences. Let’s seeeee……I guess I can start with my most recent ghostly experience.
Earlier this year, I had to go through the most awful experience of losing my cat (also the family cat), Duce. He was 14 years old.
To anyone who has lost a pet, I completely feel your pain and I’m so sorry for your loss. This was my first time experiencing such pain in my 33 years of life. In my situation there’s some guilt added onto it because my money wasn’t right at the time because of a job I lost (the place I was working at closed down out of no where) and had I had enough cash on me, he would be still be alive. Because I failed to learn the importance of actually putting money aside sometimes, he is now gone forever. I’ve told him I’m so sorry a million times by now and cried so many tears but at least I know one thing for sure: he knew how much I loved him.
He may have even paid me a visit at least twice since he passed. One night, I had fallen asleep on the couch and suddenly something bumped my arm to the point where I had to wake up and raise my head to look. I didn’t see him with my eyes but I definitely got a flash vision of him in my mind and I knew instantly the Duce was just saying, “hello.”
The second time he visited me, I was in at the kitchen table doing crafts. I got up from the table moved towards the living room when I look back and I see from the side of my eye, what looked like a black cat walking away from just where I was sitting in the kitchen…as if Duce had been sitting by my side as I was in the chair.
As guilty as I felt for him being gone, those two moments will stick with me forever because I know that he still loves me like I do him. I’ve heard stories that when we, ourselves die and cross over, we will be reunited with out pets as well as other loved ones. I can’t wait to see him again. Love you, Duce!
Okay, now that I’ve shed enough tears while writing, let’s move on to the next one…
I mentioned the ghostly experiences at the casino in Vol. 1. Well, my house was about 4 minutes away and quite frankly, I think the whole area experienced spirit activity thanks to everything being built on the grounds where the Luiseño Native Americans once lived.
I’ve experienced the power being shut off at my friends house across the street from where I lived more than once. We’d be watching a movie and suddenly everything goes shuts off, we go outside to find the power box open and no one around. One night, we were outside and I saw a dark shadow near that box and I thought to myself, “A-ha! I knew it was a ghost.” I said out loud to my friend, “who is over there?” My friend replied, “Monique, there’s no one there.”
Her little brother once told us that one night, while she was spending the night at my house, he definitely saw “her” in her room or something at one point and was creeped out after he called out to her and she was trance like and didn’t respond. Was there a ghost pretending to be her??
A few houses down the way, my friend was babysitting one day. At one point she looked to the top of the stairs to see a child standing there who definitely wasn’t one of the kids she was babysitting.
In my house, the thing that sticks out the most would be the random knocking on walls that my two little sisters and I would hear every once in a while. One day I mentioned it to my mom and she said, “Monique, stop! You’re gonna scare your sisters (my sisters weren’t scared of knocks, for the record).” Funny thing is, another day, I was in the living room with her and there was a *knock! knock! knock!* right on the wall behind her. I pretended I didn’t hear it so that I could watch her turn around and look to see where it was coming from and then laugh inside like, “Ha! you heard it too!”
My youngest little sister experienced things here and there…one time when she was about 13, I saw her crying and go running to my mom’s room and ask if she could sleep with her in her bed. I never asked her what she experienced because she was always the kind of person who would keep those things to herself. I was once told by a psychic that, I, “see spirits” and I think my sister is also sensitive in that way. Those who are more open in that way will experience more than others.
I’ve experienced hearing a glass jar lid lifting and slamming back down to the point where my mom woke up and asked me what the heck I was doing. I think the ghost was telling on me because I was on the computer that I was restricted from at the time. What a jerk. 😉 LOL.
So, this concludes, Ghost Stories, Anyone? Vol. 2. I really enjoy writing out my experiences for you guys! Once Vol. 3 is done, that will be the end of my own experiences for right now but perhaps I can do research on other well known or not so well known paranormal events all over the world and write about those. We’ll see how it goes :-).
Tell me your ghost stories in the comments or e-mail them to me anytime!
Until next time, folks …
