Meanwhile, At The Neighbors....

This particular incident took place at the home of a relative of my mother's a few years ago. Her house is also in Lunenburg County,Nova Scotia, just up the hill from my mother's. And although that house was also very old and had a few ghost sightings in it, that is not what this blurb is about.

The relative (let's call her " Amelia") lived alone in a huge two story house. She had lived there her entire life and at the time this happened, she was probably in her late seventies, but was still perfectly healthy, sane and normal.

Amelia's very good friend (let's call her Joyce, because that was actually her name) was at death's door in the hospital in the next town. Joyce was elderly and had ended up in the hospital and was expected to not live too much longer.

One particular night, Amelia was just getting into bed. Her bedroom was on the second floor. She happened to glance out the window into the darkness and there was Joyce, hovering in mid-air, smiling and waving at Amelia.

(I know this is hard to believe but it is the God's- honest- truth. Amelia never made up a story in her entire life.)

Anyway, the next morning, Amelia got the dreaded phone call informing her that Joyce had died in the night.

I guess she had come by on her way to the after-life to say farewell. 

Incidentally, Amelia is the relative I mentioned in another post who on occasion comes to me in dreams to tell me the things she is up to on the "other side". Amelia passed away in 2006.

Update on Paranormal Activity at my Mother's House

Today (July 10, 2012) my mother phoned to tell me of her experience this morning. She was alone in the kitchen and the cat was off somewhere (not anywhere near where the incident happened). These are the only two living breathing people/animals in the house.

Suddenly, she heard a very loud crashing sound in the dining room. She went in to see what could have made such a noise and found that her series of "Green Mile" books ( which she had held together with an elastic band) had come out of the book case and were spread out on the floor in numerical order. She assured me the books had been tightly nestled on the shelf and could not have possibly come loose on their own. She also thinks the noise she heard was much louder than if a few books had somehow hit the floor.

Also, when I was staying there for a few days last week, I heard a voice where there should not have been one. My mother and I were having breakfast at the kitchen table. The only other person in the house was my teenage nephew who was asleep in the living room, and the french door that goes into that room was tightly closed.

Suddenly, I heard a man's voice say a few muffled words. It sounded like it was just beyond the dining room, maybe around the staircase. It was perhaps a short sentence. Trying to be sensical, I thought possibly my nephew was awake and yelling out to us, but he did not wake until quite awhile later, whereupon I asked him if he had said or yelled anything earlier, to which he says he did not.

(Last time I heard a mysterious far away voice in that house, my uncle died a few days later.)

Also last week, my mother, husband and I were watching a movie in the living room one evening. Out of the blue, my mother turned to me and said," Do you smell that? Come over here by me and smell." When I stepped near her, there was quite an undescribable odor. It was not coming from her but seemed to be around and in front of her.

It seemed to be within a 2 foot radius of where she was sitting. She said she had smelled it before one day all throughout the downstairs of the house. On this particular night when I could smell it, too, it lasted for a few minutes and then disappeared. It almost had a strong, musty stench to it, but not really like anything I have ever smelled before. It wasn't damp or moldy, but rather a little foul and antiquated.

Perhaps a visitor from the musty beyond?

Today's Haunted Incident

Today we went to visit my mom at her house, which of course as you know by now, is haunted. I have two incidents to report.

The first did not happen today but my mother told me that about two weeks ago she was sitting in the living room watching tv with my brother. Suddenly, she felt "something" hit her in the eye. She said it wasn't anything hard or rigid but felt more like something soft as if someone might have balled up a paper napkin and tossed it at her face. It did not hurt her, only startled her immensely. She could not see anything that would have caused this, and quickly looked in my brother's direction in case he had seen anything weird happening, but he was asleep in the chair.

The second incident took place today and actually happened to me. Shaun, myself and the two kids were in the kitchen with my mother. It was after supper and we were getting ready to leave when I had to use the bathroom. I laid my cell phone down on the kitchen table right beside Shaun so I would not forget to bring it with me when I left. I was in the bathroom for only a minute but when I came out of the bathroom the phone was not where I had left it on the table. Of course, I questioned everyone but no one had seen the phone. We all looked all around the kitchen for the phone but it was nowhere to be found. (Half jokingly, I said out loud," OK, Willie, you can bring my phone back." If you don't know who Willie is, scroll back to some first posts on here)

My son, Scott decided to send a text message from his phone to mine so we could listen for the "alert" tone my phone makes for incoming messages. Immediately we heard it ringing from the dining room. We found the phone in a coat pocket ( not my coat) that was hanging on a dining room chair.

I had not even been in that room with my phone.
