Why are they afraid?
Posted 30 December 2003 - 10:25 AM
My sis in law telephoned me this morning to say she sensed that my bro had appeared to her two nights ago. She didn't actually SEE him, she just sensed he was there on the staircase. She was afraid to go to the bathroom because of this....why? Why would she be afraid of her own husband? He was never nasty to her in life so why be afraid of him now? She totally lost it yesterday and broke down in front of the children as she misses my brother badly.
My brothers oldest daughter Verona also said she had been visited by my brother just before christmas. She said she could hear him talking as she was going to sleep but was also afraid to look to where the voice was coming from. Why are they all so scared of seeing my brother? Could this be someone or something else appearing on my brothers behalf or could it be a perfectly natural response to their grieving? Replies appreciated greatly. Thankyou.

THE UNKNOWN - that is why we humans repond with fear. Even though we love the departed, somewhere in our mind, we KNOW the reality that they are no more in our dimension. This is the reason why we get uneasy.

Okay, if can ask, how old is your neice? And did this occur shortly after her Dad's passing?
Fear is a very natural reaction to a paranormal encounter and its as old as the human race. The important thing is that she not be afraid of them since they can't really hurt her. I think I'd also stress the positive, that he still loves her and will watch out for her always/wanted her to know he was okay.
As I said, fear's natural, but were there any other feeling's associated with his presence?

Not per se. Humans fear the unknown. Always have, most likely always will. When Jesus appeared to the 11, they were afraid. Jesus had to prove himself with the marks of the crucifixion. Remember that the apostles were Jews - a religion that taught the resurrection.
There are various reasons to be scared when visited by the spirit of a loved one. First, is there a possibility it is someone (something?) else posing? Second, maybe we never truly believed in life after death, despite our religious upbringing. Third, have we done anything we wouldn't want the deceased to know about?
I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Hi, Aloha, the Lady's right, they may well have thought he was a demon since Judaism doesn't teach Resurrection*wonders
about a link between Judaism and Jehovah's Witness, since both maintain the soul remains with the body until the coming/return of a savior*

The description of your life could very well fit mine but I truly believe I have been shown by a couple of things in my life that there is something to God or whatever a person designates as his creator. Can I ask if by chance your life has been getting a little easier as you get older?

Hi, Venus, Blessings and a hug, Hun, I'm pagan, but I think there's a higher power...no matter what you choses to call him or her

One of my first paranormal experiences occured in my own room and I was deathly afraid even though I knew what was going on - I was so afraid I covered my head under the sheets until I felt I was no longer in "danger" ... It doesn't matter who the spirit is - when experiencing something "out of the norm" - hence "paranormal" then most people are gonna be afraid

now onto the fear part, as stated... we have drilled into our minds, (if we're christian_ even subconsciously, that ghosts are scary things, that we are to be afraid of.... it may not be explainable, but it becomes tradition.... kinda like why do yugoslavians always boil octopus with wine corks? it's a cultural thing, that may have lost sifnificance, that has become ingrained.
