A Message in the Shower

Yesterday started out pretty normal. I got up, did my morning routine, and then had breakfast. I was cold, so I decided to take shower. I usually shower in the evening, but this cold weather made it the perfect opportunity.

I find a hot shower so relaxing, and it is a place where I can escape and leave my worries for a little while.


Lately, I seem to be living in the past or the future, so I decided to take this time to be present in this moment. I turned my focus to the shower. The warm water, the steam, the sound of the water hitting the shower floor.

I instantly felt calmer and more centered as I practiced being mindful of the moment that I was in right now.

Time Had Come

The time had come to return back to reality. I grabbed my towel off of the shower door to dry off and my mouth dropped open as I stared at the misty glass.

I stared for what felt like a few minutes as I was in shock. There were the letters “D…A…V…E” all written in a jagged line going down the shower door. The condensation was thick, but these letters to me were plain as day with no mistaking them!

If you remember from a previous camping story, Dave (name has been changed), was my very dear friend of many years whom I shared many life experiences with. He was a wonderful person with a heart of gold. He passed away sadly a few years ago. His loss has been felt deeply.

Dave’s Message to Me

I sat in awe and tears filled my eyes. My gaze followed the letters up and down the shower glass as I stood there in amazement. I was shocked to see the letters of his name. They were all in order, but not in a straight line, then ran almost diagonal.

In the past, he and many of my other departed loved ones have visited me from beyond. I have had a tremendous number of paranormal experiences. I am very fortunate to be in tune with life beyond this one. The signs that I have been given in the past have been incredible. Some are general and some are very specific to the person who passed.

Dave has written his name in the clouds for me before. I believe this is partly why he chose to put the letters of his name there on the shower door. Also, since I receive signs regularly from the departed, I am thinking that he wanted to make sure that I knew it was him specifically.

It Clicked!

I sat and thought about why he chose to visit me at that very moment. I didn’t care, either way, I was just gracious for the unbelievable moment, but when I thought about it, I came up with two very interesting connections.

Dave was huge on practicing mindfulness; he had a way about him that lit up a room. He could turn the darkest days into the light. He had such a great outlook and perspective on life, and he was able to help anyone he met in some way with his sunny demeanor. Dave practiced mindfulness daily and he was a huge believer in going with the flow and letting life unfold the way that it should. I sure do miss him; I am crying as I write this story.

Not only do I believe that he visited me because I chose to take a moment for mindfulness, but it is the month of December and he, unfortunately, passed away a few years ago in December. Fitting these two connections together was just amazing to me.

Take A Closer Look

There are signs all around us, some are obvious and others we may have to dig a bit and search around, but they are there! I believe that the spiritual world is always trying to connect with us on some level.

I have always believed in the paranormal and when I started having experiences when I was a young child and even more now as an adult, my belief is even more solidified.

I find so much peace in the fact that I strongly feel that there is a beautiful life that awaits us beyond this one. The fact that loved ones can reach us here in this realm makes it even more amazing. Look around you and see what sort of signs the world is trying to tell you; it might just leave you in awe!

A Visit to a Haunted Graveyard

A few years ago, right before Halloween, a few friends and I decided to take a drive to an old historic city about an hour away from where we live.

There is so much history in this town, and this particular night we had paid for tickets to have a ghost tour around the city.

The Adventure Began

We all met up for dinner and headed to the town for a fun night. I remember being so excited and not sure what to expect. Having had a lot of paranormal experiences in my life, I knew that I was bound to experience something!

We arrived and were greeted by individuals dressed in a costume that reflected older eras. The feel of this town was the perfect place for a ghost tour with the old houses and sidewalks that seemed never-ending. The night was chilly, and it was dark minus some lampposts and some twinkling stars.

The Tour

There were so many people there that night, we were all split up into groups and assigned a tour guide that would be with us for the remainder of the night as we walked around and discovered what this haunted town had to offer.

We started the tour with an introduction story by the fire as we were given an overview of what our tour would entail and some brief history of the town. The stories of what occurred here gave me the creeps and I was scared yet eager to experience all that I could in this town.

We Walked for Miles

Our haunted adventure was by foot, so we walked for miles as we checked out different historic sites, buildings, and even a graveyard.

I remember walking into a very old house that was said to have a lot of paranormal activity. It dated back over a hundred years ago. Our tour guide gave us information on the history of the home and what had occurred there.

He then told us about the many ghost sightings, footsteps, and ghostly apparitions that have been witnessed by countless people there. Given that I am very sensitive to energy, I can pick up on the presence of spirits, I can feel them just as if another human being was in the room with me.

We proceeded to walk down the dark sidewalks. I felt safe because there was a large group of people with us, but the atmosphere was incredibly eerie and set the tone for this adventure.

Next Up

As we walked further, our guide took us to a candy store that was haunted by a ghost that makes her presence known almost daily. We spent time looking at all of the delicious candies and even bought some! While at the register, the lady was telling me all that she experiences daily with this spirit. I recall her telling me that the spirit makes loud noises, moves things around, and hears footsteps often. I picked up on very strong energy in this building, it made my skin crawl. I’m not sure how this lady was able to work there daily!

Close to the candy store was a graveyard that was said to house many spirits, one of which has been seen peeking through a window and staring into the cemetery. I recall a very unfortunate story that our guide was talking about. Some traumatic events led to the death of some of the people buried at this cemetery.

The energy was palpable, and I don’t think that there was even a minute inside of this graveyard that I didn’t have goosebumps. I started feeling overwhelmed as I picked up on one energy after another. My friends and I decided to take pictures in the cemetery as part of the memories of our fun and scary adventure in this old town…big mistake!

The Proof Was in the Photos

I do not have any doubt in my mind that ghosts exist. I grew up in two haunted homes and I have had many experiences with my departed loved ones that have sent me signs and manipulated items around the room etc. to show us that they are still with us. There is no question in my mind that there is a very beautiful life that awaits us after this one.

The energy was very palpable in this town. I could just feel their presence around me. One of our friends in the group had never experienced anything paranormal, he was very skeptical, and even though he felt off, he was in denial and frightened. He just kept saying that what he felt wasn’t pleasant. He was a believer after this trip.

The photos that we took in the graveyard came out very shocking. There were orbs and streaks of light, there were areas of fog, there were images that looked like faces, and by far the scariest part was that our faces and bodies were severely distorted. It was as if the ghosts were standing right in front of us. I have deleted the photos where our faces were distorted because I found them to be very disturbing.

Question for You

I wanted to share this story with you in light of October, spooky season, and Halloween coming up. It is an experience that I will never forget, not only because it was so fun, but because it was just truly amazing to have even more proof than I already do that there is something that awaits us after this life.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience? I would love to hear about any ghost stories that you may have!

My Grandmother’s Near-Death Experience (NDE)

My grandmother, who sadly is no longer with us, was my whole life. I adored her so much and I valued our relationship beyond words. She shared a story with me many years ago about a near-death experience (NDE) that she had when she was younger.

My grandmother was a loving, encouraging, and wise woman. She was a beautiful soul and a bright light in my life. I miss her every single day. I am blessed and thankful that I get signs from her all the time. We are still connected, even though she is departed.

Some of my favorite moments were with my grandma. We used to cook, watch our favorite shows together, and share stories. I used to love to hear her stories, she had a very interesting life, and I was intrigued by all that she had to share. We were sitting on the couch together one day and she told me about a near-death experience that she had.

My grandma was at a hospital being prepped for a major surgery. The staff did their routine checks and then administered general anesthesia; my grandma was then wheeled to the operating room. The doctors worked diligently as she lay on the operating table.

I was sitting on the edge of my seat and nervous about what my grandmother was going to say next. She told me that after a while into the procedure, she started to bleed profusely. The doctors had an extremely hard time stopping the large amounts of blood from escaping her body. My grandmother said that she didn’t remember anything going on due to the anesthesia, until she “died.”

The doctors frantically tried to save her, but the blood loss was so great, that shortly afterward, my beloved grandmother was pronounced “dead.” Blood loss this great is one of the risks of surgery, although considered extremely rare.

My grandmother recalls the hospital staff standing over her body, panicked at what just happened. She recalls the medical staff saying that she had “died” and she remembers them working over her body tirelessly trying to bring her back to life.

In the meantime, as doctors hover over her, she said that she could see and hear them, but she was not able to respond. She was instantly overcome with the most beautiful sense of peace and happiness. My grandmother said that she felt warm and safe and was just overcome with a rush of joy. She had never experienced such bliss here on Earth, she said it was something so beautiful and magical that it was beyond what we are even capable of feeling and understanding.

My grandma recalls a bright white light that she referred to as a “ball.” This bright light brought her overwhelming joy, and she followed it higher and higher. She remembers stairs and someone standing at the top of the stairs welcoming her.

I remember my grandmother smiling at this moment because she recalls what it felt like and it was pure bliss. She said that she felt so light and free, it was a feeling that she could not get enough of.

As she approached this figure standing at the top of the steps, she recalls the figure telling her that this is not her time and that she must go back to earth. Instantaneously, she remembers experiencing a very strong pulling sensation, almost as if she were being pulled very strongly back down to earth.

Grandma remembers not wanting to leave this new beautiful dimension that she reached. The downward pull was too strong, and she was reminded that she was still needed here on earth. She ended up coming to in the operating room and lived many years later to tell her story.

My grandmother never feared death and her experience of this only solidified her feelings even more. She knew one day that she would be able to feel the pure joy and happiness that came with this experience and that she was going to enjoy all that she had here on earth, every moment that was given to her.

While I have not had an NDE, I have had many experiences with the afterlife including experiences with ghosts and getting countless signs and messages from my departed loved ones.

There is no doubt in my mind that there is another life after the one that we live here on earth. NDEs, ghosts, and other paranormal experiences only further prove that even when our bodies are no longer living, our souls are transported to a place more beautiful than we can comprehend.

Have you or anyone you know ever had an NDE? I would love to hear your stories and experiences!

My Paranormal Experiences

Before I share this with you, I understand that the topic of ghosts and paranormal can be frightening to some people, it can also be a topic that some people do not believe in. I have always believed in ghosts and the afterlife and I became even more excited about this after the experiences that I had as a child and continue to have today.

Growing up, we moved a lot, most within the same state and neighboring counties, but we had our fair share of houses. My earliest experience happened when I was just a young girl. There was a radio that was kept in the bathroom and it would start playing music without even being on. My sister and I would look at each other confused because we knew that the radio was off and we didn’t know how it could play on its own. This was just the start of my paranormal journey.

Several years later, we moved to another home and this is where the craziness started. It didn’t take long before we noticed the TV turning off and on by itself, the sound of footsteps could be heard as could random tapping noises, none of which we could find an identifiable source.

Strange things were happening all around us and were witnessed by all members of my family. We became very uneasy living in our home. Days were filled with anxiety and odd energy around the house. A few years later we found ourselves moving to a different house, not because of the paranormal experiences, but it was a welcomed move, to say the least, especially for my sister and I.

Our new house was peaceful and not a ghostly sign in sight, it was also a new home, unlike our previous home which after researching we found out was built on top of a historic battleground. The years went by and still no sign of any paranormal activity, or so we thought.

Unfortunately, over the last decade I have lost numerous loved ones and as we all know, losing someone that was once close to us is very difficult and traumatic. It brings about so much peace when I get a sign from my departed loved ones. It could be a feather, a symbol in the clouds, or even a scent such as perfume that they used to wear. I have also gotten some not-so-subtle signs, such as soap flying off of the counter, and items that go missing around the house only to turn up in the most random place. I have experienced electronics that will start up or stop while speaking about a certain loved one. Yes, these could all be a huge coincidence, but I like to think that my loved ones are speaking to me from beyond.

Do you have any ghostly or paranormal experiences in general? I am beyond fascinated with hearing stories that others have witnessed. There is so much undiscovered in life.

A Message For Me

The world around us is in constant communication with us. If we take time to notice, there are signs and messages meant for us to discover. Some messages are blatantly obvious and others are more subtle, but each are important to us as we navigate through life.

For over six months now, I have seen 11:11 on the clock at least once, but sometimes twice a day. This number I have always referred to as the “make a wish” number, but it wasn’t until I started seeing it all the time that I learned of another possible meaning. Apparently the numbers 11:11 are strongly connected to the spiritual world and when seen, are a sign that you are on the right life path. I of course was happy to hear this! The interesting thing is that now I am aware of this, one would think that I would stop seeing 11:11, however I don’t, it doesn’t stop no matter how busy I am, it’s still there. Maybe I have not discovered its full meaning, or maybe it’s merely a strange coincidence.

Some of you may not believe in these sorts of messages, everyone is different, but for those of you that do, are there any other meanings of 11:11 that you know of? Have you ever received a message from Above that drew your attention? Please feel free to share!
