A few years back I moved to land that has been in my family since the Civil War. A couple of years later I was ask to allow my cousin from the other side of my family to come live with me for a while. That side of my family are not good people but I was dumb enough to want to help.
After her forth divorce she had some emotional problems and her father thought she would do well to come to a new town and start over. He begged me to take her in and knowing her history of drinking, pills, and men, I reluctantly gave in out of devotion to family.
Things went fine for a while and our friendship grew. She took her meds, saw a doctor, and began to start a new life for herself. It didn't last long and soon she was dating a another married man and bringing a lot of drama to my peaceful home.
Long story short: It all came to head one night and I told her she could not live here if she continued to bring trouble to me and my family. She hit me and put her hands around my throat. I pushed her away and into a wall to protect myself but she continued coming at me. Once I restrained her she began to calm down and went into her room while I cleaned the scratches on my neck.
A few minutes later she was begging for forgivness and that's when it happened. A golden ball the size of a softball floated through the window and stopped in front of my chest, hovering there. I felt a surge of warmth and comfort from it but it scared her and she backed away.
After she backed away, it came toward me and faded into my neck area. I didn't know what it was, but she moved out the next week. I later told my grandmother (from the good side of my family) the story and she smiled a very strange smile. She told me it was an ancestor who had always protected the family. She was a native American woman who owned the very land I now live on and this was not the first time this golden light had protected our side of the family.
Since, I have seen it twice. Once right before a tornado ripped through this town leaving only a few homes. Mine was one of them. I saw it another time when walking on the mountain right before I almost fell into the ice cold creek.
I always know that on this property I am protected.
