Mary - Ormond Beach, Florida - January 19, 2010

I will start by saying I believe I'm being watched over by a controlling, mean ghost. When I got out of the shower a foggy picture of a skull head was on the mirror. The next day, I didn't sleep very well. I woke up and tried to go back to sleep but I just felt weird, like I tried to turn my back and felt like I was going to get pounced on. So I woke up and my mother had left for work, and I was the only one home with my dog. Getting up I wasn't sure what to expect, really. I went into the kitchen for breakfast and all the TVs and radios were off. As I reached for the milk I heard a man say a loud but clear and gentle, "Hello baby sis." I turned around, but no one was there. It made me think, okay, weird. Then I put the milk back and as soon as I closed the fridge I heard the loudest bang come from my bathroom, as if my things has been thrown down by an angry person. I dropped my cup -- I'm glad it was plastic! I ran down the hall and looked. My makeup and bathroom cleaner were all over the floor. I was so shocked I couldn't believe it.

After cleaning it up, I washed my hands. I felt someone put their hand on my shoulder. It may have been my brother who passed away, letting me know it was that blue boy spirit I saw, and am terrified of that did it -- he likes to cause me trouble.

I went onto my morning business. My mom called me from work and came home early as she stayed with my dog until I got home. Later that night I got home and went to sleep and had a dear dream of my brother who I miss a lot. In the dream I was being stalked by a young boy about 16 who wanted to kill me. (I think it was the blue spirit boy showing me his terrifying human self before he died.) My big brother appeared and he held my hand and smiled at me as we talked as I was surrounded by a lot of strangers who were dressed in long white robes of purity, and I was dressed in a long white dress with glitter and sequins on it. I wasn't sure what was going on... As the strangers started walking off he was fading away like mist and he said, "I will be right there, wait for me." I woke up startled. So here I am wide awake at 4 AM and I waited for him and I started to cry because I miss him knowing he's not alive. I couldn't believe this... he meant it when he said it in the dream -- wait for me I'll be right there! Then I heard demanding talking coming from somewhere that sounded like my brother telling someone to, "Get out, leave her alone!" Then I saw him come together like a misty form smiling at me. As he held my hand again I smiled back knowing that it would all be okay.
