ESP, Your Pets, & You

I wrote this back in 2014.

ESP, YOUR PETS, & YOU

Do you communicate with your pets? Have you really tried? Have you looked deep into your pet’s eyes, and said something to them with your mind, not your voice? Have you gotten a response…maybe, a loving gaze from them, or a thought that came into your mind from them, possibly just an image or picture of something out of the blue? I believe that is your pet and you communicating on a very basic level…mind to mind, heart to heart.

Extra sensory perception – ESP…the 6th sense…information that comes to you beyond the limitations of normal hearing, seeing, touching, smelling  or tasting. It is a receiving of information, concerning the past, present, or future, originating in a second, or alternative reality.

If you have a pet, be it a dog, cat, bird, or other animal we share our homes/lives with on a daily basis, you probably talk to them a lot. We treat them as part of our family, and they learn what we are saying and what we mean, especially at meal times. Other times we scold them, and they know they’ve made some little mistake. We give them hugs, or tell them our secrets, and give them love. They give that love right back to us, uninhibited.

For me, I believe I will again see my pets that have passed away…in heaven. They will all be there to greet me when I get there. Some may disagree…and that’s fine. We all have our own set of beliefs. However, this story happened just as I’m going to write it. It is one I will never forget, and I know what I saw and felt at the time.

Quite a few years ago, my sister’s dog, a Pomeranian named Trixie, passed away. She was failing in health, as she was aged, but we did not think it was time for her to leave us, just yet. However, I suppose she thought different.  The family was all gathered around watching a tv show, that evening. I noticed that Trixie came and sat in front of me, just staring at me for the longest time.

I got the strongest feeling she was saying good-bye. I looked into her eyes, and silently said to her that I loved her, and would see her later someday. She seemed happy with that. She then moved over to each family member, in turn, doing the same thing…staring at them with a loving look. I don’t think anyone else noticed, though. I could tell she was beaming her loving thoughts to them, thanking them all for being her family all these years.

The next morning, she was gone, passed away during the night. I’m glad we got to say our final good-byes the night before. (I’m going to cry, now…and it has been so many years ago…it is still a beautiful, yet sad remembrance.)  But, I know I will see her again. I will see all my other pets that have gone on before me…someday. That’s why I never say good-bye…to pets, or to people. I’ve told them all the same…that it is not good-bye…just…”See you later.”

If we want to have a chance of communicating with our pets, we have to learn to pay attention to what they are trying to tell us, in their own way.

UFO?

Standard

UFO?

I thought I saw a UFO last night.

Well, it probably was just a helicopter, but I like saying it was a UFO because I really couldn’t identify this flying object.

I’ve seen helicopters flying around and this was kind of different. I know these photos are just bright blobs in a dark sky, but I watched it for a little while, and it didn’t act like a helicopter – you know, like it was going somewhere. Because this one didn’t really go anywhere.

I was just about to turn out the kitchen lights, when I saw out the window this bright light. It was pretty far off so I couldn’t really tell what it was. It was below the tree in our neighbor’s back yard at first, then it slowly rose up above the tree. It never got closer or farther away. There was no noise like a helicopter either. Then it went real fast straight up way above the tree. Then it went back down and then blinked out. It was just gone. Strange …

I even told my husband – hey, I think I saw a UFO, and told him what I saw, and showed him the photos. He said it was probably a helicopter. I said yeah probably, but I’m going to say it was a UFO. Then that was it.

Mystery Noise

Standard

Mystery Noise

***

For the past few weeks we’ve been hearing strange noises.

It sounds like it’s someone walking around or bumping the ceiling when we are out in the garage.

I hear it early in the mornings when it’s still dark outside, and also during the day, and at night.

I just hear it out there, not when we are in the house, just the garage.

It might be up in the attic, or even on the roof, but I don’t know.

Could it be birds on the roof? I’m thinking no, because the birds we have around here are not large, and wouldn’t weigh enough to make a sound with their feet. They aren’t active at night anyway.

Could it be cats on the roof. Possible, but the outside cats we have now are just not that energetic to climb on the roof and I’ve never seen them up there. We have had cats that did, in the past though.

It couldn’t be squirrels, or raccoons, because we don’t have those around here either.

Once I thought it might be the wind blowing the shingles on the roof, but I’ve looked outside when I hear the noise, and the wind isn’t blowing at all.

This might be strange, but I think it’s our ghost, or another one has come to pay a visit. There are no other noises, though … just the thumping sound.

Here’s the opening to our attic that is out there. There is nothing at all stored up there, and we never go up there.

Letter to myself:

Dear Ghost,

Be flash about music

Rules challenge you

Scared?

Behind tragedy, smiles escaped

Independent evening learned

Worldwide – pick anything

Myths painted without fun

Peace, rain, art … Quiet ahhhh

This happened probably in 2015 …

I had a maybe premonition of something bad happening in the little town of Seguin TX.

I was telling someone how to pronounce the name of the town … Se-gheen? Sequin? Saw-geen? Sah-gwin?

Anyway, I was in real life or maybe still the dream, telling about the dream to whoever it was sitting by me at the I-Hop restaurant.

I-Hop

Laughing

Tears

Mascara running

The people at the next table were laughing, too, because they had overheard my story, and saw me having a laughing fit. Then their reaction/expressions to my ‘I had a dream’ statement got me laughing more, and I couldn’t continue.

Now, just out of the blue I had this strange premonition about the town – why? Some kind of fortune telling? Something else?

I don’t know. I’ve never been to that town, I don’t know anyone who lives in that town, I have never read anything or heard anything about that town, nor ever heard any news about that town before.

But later, I did for quite awhile keep looking online for any strange happenings being reported about that town.

Never heard a thing. Huh!

Weirdness …

Scenes of Favorite Days – # 3 – Click to view Click to view Click to view

I don’t know why this is a favorite day, but the whole thing was unusual and I just enjoyed it, I guess.

Another super windy day with sand blowing. Middle of the afternoon – power is out – furnace is out – it’s winter time again.

I’d been sewing Barbie clothes for the girl’s dolls, and also I had been watching my favorite soap opera. It was my mom’s favorite, too, and when it ended I called her to talk about it, as it was a very suspenseful episode. Then the power went out.

I was sitting on top of the kitchen table, the house was getting cold, and I didn’t know how to re-light the furnace (it was a gas pilot light and the wind had blown it out), but it was okay – we didn’t blow up.

One other thing though, was I’d been reading some kind of spooky stories about ghosts and such. It said the spirits loved the windy dark days, too, as the static electricity in the air was conductive to their appearing. I still always think of this on these kinds of days.

~note~ I have no pictures of any of this today – no sand, no Barbie doll, no furnace, no table, no soap opera 🙂 – little pictures (doll, TV, & ghost) are from Free Clip Art~

Lost and lonely

Searching for the soul

You feel it’s wandering

Lost and lonely

Foggy thoughts not whole

Spirit weeps in confusion

Illusion – delusion

Lost and lonely

Drifting in the evernight

Will you not give Spirit solace

Guide him to everlasting light

Ouch!

What is happening to me?

I was minding my own business, safe and snug in my own skin, and then …

Is it supposed to hurt so much?

My kinsmen told me that this would happen one day, but never mentioned the pain.

Shhh – did you hear that? That ripping sound? Oh, what is the reason for this strange tear on my back?

I can’t see what is happening to me, but I can feel it. I feel like screaming, and I will …

Now, I’m stuck; I can’t move; oh someone help me.

Wait a minute. Now my skin has gone brittle, brittle …

Ummph

I managed to wriggle a leg out of my encasement, now another and another.

Whew, let me rest a few minutes. I feel so tired, and a bit damp.

The sun feels good on my new wings. What? I have new wings? They are kind of pretty.

I will wave my wings around and sing. I feel like singing loud.

The pain is gone and I feel renewed.

So that’s what my kinsmen meant when they called it metamorphosis!

The Levitating Mirror – A True Ghost Story

Standard

The Levitating Mirror – A True Ghost Story

***

Ready for another strange story of mine? I did post this one before, on October 31, 2017. It’s about a mirror that was in the house here, and it really happened.

True Ghost Story for Halloween  

***

This is a true ghost story. It happened in the house we live in now.

THE LEVITATING MIRROR

Levitate, levitation, levitating…to rise or float in the air esp. in seeming defiance of gravitation; the act or process of levitating – esp. the rising or lifting of a person or thing by means held to be supernatural.

Our bedroom mirror levitated…by itself!

We’ve lived here in this house for quite a few years, now, and we are only the second family to have lived here. We met the previous owners, and they are not weird, and no horrible thing ever occurred in this house, that we were made aware of. It’s just that the paranormal seems to follow me around, no matter which house I’m in.

The mirror in question, was a used one…one of those kind of tall ones that fit onto a dresser. It wasn’t bolted on, though, just propped up against the wall, and dresser top. The dresser was covered with all kinds of junk that accumulates, such as papers, bills, a glass lazy-susan that held coins, pens, watches, and miscellaneous items. There was a box of papers, a piggy bank, a belt, some cards…well, the whole top was covered in stuff.

I was sitting in the dining room, doing some scrap booking. The bedroom where the mirror was, was one wall away and in front of me. We have four cats, but they were all sleeping in the far back bedroom. It was quiet in the house…no TV on, no music playing. Suddenly, I hear a terrible crash coming from the bedroom. I went to see what it was. I found that the mirror had fallen onto the carpeted floor, and shattered.

What was so strange was that absolutely nothing in the bedroom or on top of the dresser had been disturbed at all! Not one thing had fallen off to the floor. There was no way the mirror could have just fallen frontwards in the first place, because of all the stuff on the top of the dresser. It couldn’t have slipped from the bottom, either, as it would have knocked off the stuff.

All I can believe, is that somehow, the only way…the only way this happened, was that the mirror levitated itself, going up and over the things, silently, then turned itself sideways to the dresser, then crashed down onto the floor. That’s when I heard the crash! I ran in, and saw it laying on the floor, sideways to the dresser, mirror glass side down…on carpet. The sound of breaking glass had been loud, though!

What is also surprising, is that it did not scare me at all. I was just like, well, gotta clean up the glass shards. I’ve gotten so used to objects flying around the houses I’ve been in, that it has become the normal thing. I had a bit of a time, trying to get that mirror up off the floor, as it was pretty heavy. I couldn’t just lift it up and take it out. I had to drag it all the way through the house and out to the garage. It stayed out there for a long, long time; we just recently got rid of it. Nothing else ever happened with it.

That incident was only one of several, here in this house. I’ll tell more in another post, and also things that happened in other houses I’ve lived in.

Hope your household goods stay put, because mine sure don’t!
