Relaying a Message from Beyond

One of my hobbies is reading or watching anything about the paranormal. I love shows like Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth. I love reading about ESP! A lot of people who believe this stuff also believe that kids with autism are sensitive. They believe that these kids might have psychic capabilities and are more sensitive to seeing ghosts.

I've never seen this ability in my daughter. But this morning at breakfast, I thought I heard my daughter say that while she was sleeping, she heard a message to pass on to me. This intrigued me quite a bit. I asked her who sent the message and what the message was. She couldn't remember any of it. My mother, who passed away about 8 weeks after my daughter was born, had her birthday this past Friday. I was sure the message was from her. I asked my daughter if the message was anything like "I love you!" She said it definitely wasn't that!

I was at a loss and very confused. My daughter went on to say that she received the message while I was sleeping. I told her she must have been sleeping too! She said she wasn't, which confused me because I thought it happened while she was dreaming. I mentioned this, and she said she that wasn't the case--she was awake when she heard the message.

I was really confused. Then I realized that someone must have called and left a message on the answering machine. Sure enough, the light was blinking. It was her soccer coach who called to let us know what time soccer was meeting this morning!

D'oh!

  5. LMAO - I really thought that was going to be a message from beyond. Well my Aspie son is fearful of being in other rooms alone in my apt. However he is like that in any home, except at mine he claims he saw man's arm coming out of the wall from behind him. It was reflected in the bathroom mirror. He described a brown leather jacket and the hand's fingers curled up to grab him. Scared the crap out of me. Then I had this friend that supposedly can feel presences come over and sit in the dark in his bathroom and his bedroom and she said she saw an old man appear. It was freaky but I am still skeptical.

  6. I'm so with you on the ghost thing--I love Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, plus Zac and Co. are pretty easy on the eyes. Funny it turned out to be about soccer!

  7. HAHA, that is awesome!!!! Couldn't have scripted it better. I love all that ghost stuff, too, even though I really don't believe at all. It's just really interesting and I am a huge scaredy cat.

  8. That is funny :) I also LOVE all those shows, but we have to wait till PA has been in bed for at least 3 hours befor we can watch those shows or she wakes up screaming. Weird but whatever she just dosn't like I guess.
    I have read many books on the subject. One of my fav authors is Syilvia Brown.

  10. I'm getting a message now. It says, send "Big Daddy money." Not sure what to make of this but I would send some. Just in case.

  11. lol!

    I sure do hope you get that message from your mom though. It can happen. Still waiting for one from my dad....

    My son, OMG the stories I could tell you about him literally pulling thoughts out of my head and speaking them....& he's not all that verbal. I heard the former director of UCLA's paranormal research institute say it is not uncommon for people with temporal lobe epilepsy to be prone to psychic activity.
