Experience #1: As a child I had several experiences, but the one that stands out the most was when I was about 9 or 10. We lived in NYC. It was summer and very hot and we did not have any AC. I was asleep in my room. It was about 3 a.m. when it became extremely cold. I got up and retrieved my blanket. Suddenly, I hear my shoes shuffling under my bed and then there was someone standing next to my bed. The person was breathing very heavily and moaning with an AAHHH-type of sound. I became very afraid and started calling for my father. I started with a small whisper because I was so scared to be heard by whom ever was standing next to me, to finally screaming for him. He ran into my room and turned on the light. I told him what had happened and he, my mother and I searched the whole room. The only thing we found was that all the clothing in my closet was on the floor and my shoes were scattered. I went to sleep in his room and he slept in my bed. The next morning we received a phone call from my aunt in Cuba to tell us that my grandmother passed away at 3 a.m. What do you think?
Experience #2: The second experience happened indirectly. It was when my mother was dying. Her doctor came into the room and was explaining to my sister-in-law and I what her condition was. He proceeded to tell us: "As I told your father last night when I entered the room, your mother's heart is staring to fail." I said to him, "You must mean my older brother?" He said, "No, your father." My sister-in-law then said, "Maybe it's my husband." He said, "No, he told me, 'Hello, I am Mr. Cruz, Mrs. Cruz' husband and I would like to know how my wife is doing,' so I told him. Mr. Cruz was dressed with a white shirt and pants, his hair was white, combed back and he had a white moustache. I stepped out of the room for a second, but when I returned he was gone." My sister-in-law and I looked at each other in disbelief and I look at the doctor and said, "Doctor, my father has been dead since 1985." The doctor went pale, mumbled "What?" and walked out of the room hyperventilating. My mother passed away that night. We figure my father was there to escort her.
Experience #3: My last experience was the night my mother died. I was staying with my aunt (my mother's sister) and it was about 2 a.m. My aunt and I were sharing her bed because she is elderly and I did not want to leave her alone. I heard the room door open (we were the only ones in the house) and a blast of cold air. Suddenly, I feel a hand on my forehead stroking my hair. I nudge my aunt to wake her and told her there was someone in the room. Just then, the phone rang and it was my sister-in-law to tell us that my mother just passed away. I feel it was mother that came to say goodbye and stroked my hair just like when I was a little girl.
I don't know if these experiences are proof of the paranormal to anyone else, but they sure are to me.
have a paranormal tale to tell?
