Had a secret friend that lived in the tree that my parents planted outside my bedroom window when I was a little girl. I even drew a picture of her when I was older because I could still remember what she looked like. If I think about it now, she looked alot like the pictures of pixies and fairies that I have seen as an adult. Her name I had given her was Jennie of the wood. MY name is Jennifer, so I probably made it up, but she was very real to me.
Oh, there are a TON of stories I could tell. My mom(passed away from cancer years ago when I was 26)had a gift, my brother has it, and so do I. It is what I like to think of as a strong intuition. All 3 of us have always been extremely sensitive and could sit in a room together and just read each others thoughts quite often.
I also will get the willies and RUN out of a room if I get that feeling. Oh it isn't hard to describe - it is like something is just chasing you up the stairs. I used to get that feeling every time I was in the basement of the condo my parents lived in before my mom died. Something was not right in that basement!!
My mom and I always had a joke amongst ourselves when I was growing up. WE always felt like I was the mom and SHE was my child. I just felt responsible for her at a very young age. Then when she became ill, I WAS quite responsible for her........
But my daughter who was born after she died, constantly FEELS to me, like my mom(I know that sounds insane!) FIrstly, a psychic(very well respected person) told me I would be pregnant within the next 6 months, and I would have a little girl. She said she could SEE this little girl right now, and that my mom was there with her, caring for her. SHe said I would name my dd after my mom(which I strongly had no intentions of doing at the time). She also had many other messages for me from my mom, which noone could have otherwise known - such as *go get that massage because that headache you have had for weeks isn't going to go away until you work out that kink in your neck*......
Needless to say, I was pregnant in 3 months, and dd is named after my mom. Her eyes were blue for almost 3 years, then one day they turned hazel, which was the color of my moms eyes. (I DO realize this happens normally to alot of babies, but she was2 3/4. it just seemed odd)(noone else in either side of the family has that color eyes)
Dd says and does things my mom would have said and with the mannerisms of my mom. Dd has this habit of constantly saying *mom I love you*. I mean she will tell me a thousand times a day, even after I get to the point where I say OK STOP, I LOVE YOU TOO, BUT STOP SAYING IT!!!! - when my mom was just about to die, I KNEW it, and I wouldn't leave her side. I kept obsessively telling her that I loved her, over and over. This woman could not utter a sensible word at the time because the cancer had spread to her liver and she couldn't think or talk right. BUT, she managed to look straight into my eyes and say *OK ENOUGH, STOP SAYING IT!* I had to laugh when she said that, because I realized I was driving her crazy! It is almost like she is playing a joke on me now, via my dd.
Last thing(could go on forever, sorry!) I see I am not the only one who gets teary eyed when I hear these stories. Why is it that when I hear a story concerning the supernatural, my eyes get all teared up. I mean, I am not SAD, so why does it happen???
Love LOVE this thread!!!
