My experience takes place about 7 years ago. I had gotten involved with a man that I met in my hometown. After dating for several months, he decided to move back to his home state in the Midwest and wanted me to go with him. I thought that he was the greatest thing since sliced bread and gladly gave up my job and security to move in with him.
About six months after living in his home state, he became very mean, abusive, insulting and was constantly in and out of jail for fighting, disorderly conduct and DUI. I was not used to this way of life and I was scared out of my wits and very confused.
One night, I was standing in the kitchen at the stove cooking dinner when out of the corner of my eye I saw a woman in a beautiful white, flowing robe. She had shoulder-length, curly, dark hair. She walked from the bedroom, turned and went into the living room. When I turned to look, she was gone.
A couple of nights later, I was sleeping on the couch because my ex-boyfriend would grind his teeth during his sleep and it drove me nuts. So I was sleeping on the couch and I suddenly was awakened. I was lying on my back and right behind me stood this same woman. I looked up and I saw her white robe, but I didn't see her face and I remember that her robes were moving and flowing like she was standing in a breeze. When I sat up to get a good look, she was gone. But I did not feel any fear. All of a sudden, I had made the decision that it was time for me to leave the relationship. Just like that. I had been very confused about this, thinking that he would change, but at that point when I was sitting on that couch, I knew it was time to get out. The next day, my ex-boyfriend and I were arguing and he walked into the living room and the glass cover on the light in ceiling fell as he walked by and barely missed his head! Then as he was walking into the bedroom, the cabinet door of the linen closet came open and he hit his head on the door! I couldn't help but smile!
Shortly after that, I left him to go back home. As I was at the airport on the plane getting ready to take off, my window was facing west and I looked and saw this one cloud in the sky. As I looked more closely, I noticed that this cloud took on the form of Jesus. I knew then that everything would be okay.
I have never seen the woman in the white robe again. I have always wondered if this was my guardian angel or maybe my sister? I had a sister that was born a year before me that died at birth. At least I am very comforted to know that someone was there watching over me and trying to lead me in the right direction.
have a paranormal tale to tell?
