Louisa -- Manchester, United Kingdom -- January 2012 and Ongoing

At the beginning of January 2012 I bought a crystal ball with the intention of learning to scry. As soon as I looked at ball I started to get images of people, faces, animals, babies and the most beautiful scenery you could hope to imagine! I was very surprised and please with my new crystal ball as I was finding it very entertaining.

Then the images started to appear to me with my eyes closed. This is a common occurrence for people who are very relaxed and who are ready to drift off to sleep. I was getting these images whilst I was alert and wide awake.

Then suddenly one day, with my crystal ball in front of me, I saw a view from the inside of a car. I focused on the clouds then saw movement and being the curious person I am, I looked to the right side to see the driver. He was a young man in his mid 20s, pale face, short brown hair and wearing sun glasses. He gave me a wry smile or grin and then his face went blurred. I thought wow, as I had a feeling that something great had just happened but I did not understand what!

Anyway, weeks go by and I start to see this gentleman frequently. I saw him every time I closed my eyes and when I use the crystal ball. So I decided to try and find out a little more about him by asking him. I usually get a "Y" or yes or "A" for affirmative, or "N" for no, but sometimes he will spell out a yes or no in full. He tells me he loves me which is really lovely and I see a lot of love hearts, so he's a big softy at heart! I know his name, his age, where he was born as well as the sad circumstances surrounding his tragic death in 1930.

In his lifetime, he was a police officer in the States but I don't want to give any of his personal details here out of respect for his surviving relatives and family. Their loss must have been horrendous at the time of his death and I would love to tell them he is alive and well and has achieved so much since.

Nobody knows about my encounters with my spirit friend. I have not told anyone, I don't know how to break this sort of news to people so I think I'll not mention it to anyone. I'm not ashamed; I'm very very pleased he is there, guiding me and helping me through my journey of life. He has pulled me back from the brink of death on a few occasions, he has been there for me when no one else has and I think I must be the luckiest person in the world just to know him like I do.
