Book of Questions – Q: #2
[content_box_green width=”75%”]Do you believe in ghosts or evil spirits? Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted?[/content_box_green]
When I was 19, I stayed at a friend’s farm up in Cairns which is in the northern part of Queensland, Australia. We sat up talking till about midnight and the last hour of the conversation was about the ghost that they had in their house.
I said, “That’s fine, I don’t have a problem with ghosts!”
Just before I went to bed, they said, “Julie, he likes the room we’ve put you in!”
I put on a really brave front and said, “That’s fine, I can handle that.”
We let me tell you, it was probably one of the worst nights of my life. There was a clock next to the bed and instead of sounding – tic toc, it went tic click toc – and I felt like I was in an alternate reality.
I could see a grotesque being at the end of my bed reaching out for me. I felt like I didn’t sleep all night and I was very happy to leave in the morning.
Was that Real?
Or did I have a fertile imagination… I don’t know. I believe that it was real and that there was actually someone there.
From that moment … for 7 years after – not every year, but about 8-9 times over those 7 years – I would wake up in the middle of the night and my body would be totally frozen and I could feel there was someone standing next to me.
I didn’t feel afraid in that I was going to be harmed, but it is quite shocking to feel that your body is paralysed and you feel that your eyes are open, you can see what is happening in the room … and my voice was frozen so that I couldn’t call out.
The last time this happened was when we lived in Canberra.
Before this last event, I was always in bed alone – so there was no one that I could cuddle up to and ask to please keep me safe.
The last time it happened, I was in bed with my husband and I felt as if I had been caught having an affair. I said to this ghost or entity – whatever you want to call it, “What are you doing here … you don’t come when Frank’s here!”
I was being pushed into spiritual development
That was the last time he came … but I felt that I was being pushed into my spiritual development because within a week of that incident, I opened the Yellow Pages and said to my husband while pointing to a company’s ad, “They’re going to give me a job!”
He said, “You can’t say that!”
I said, “Yes, I can.” [This is a tip about my personality … if I can conceive it – I can achieve it .]
So, I phoned them up and they gave me a job. Now the interesting thing here is – that the lady who supervised me became my first spiritual teacher. I felt that the ghost was giving me a kick along to start developing my spiritual gifts … if you want to put it that way.
That’s my experience with ghosts. Would I go and stay in a haunted house? Alone? Ooohhh … if I had to. It’s not one of those things that would make me feel comfortable and I’m excited to go and do it!
What would you do?
Would you go and stay in a haunted house in an isolated place on your own?
