Daily Prompt: Whoa!

Todays Daily Prompt, asks us: What’s the most surreal experience you’ve ever had?

I sometimes think my whole life is a fantasy and maybe one day I’ll wake up. And I don’t mean in a good way. So when this question came up, I had to partake.

If you’ve read my ‘About’ page, you would have seen I’m a believer in all things Paranormal. This wasn’t a thing I picked up in my adult life, but it has been with me from a very young age. In fact, I had my first experience when I was three. Although, I’m not the only one in my family to have experienced such things.

Ghosts, and unusual encounters have followed me through the years. Of course, I don’t expect everyone to believe such things, but for me, they are real, and my family too. Hell, even deja vu prickles the hairs on a regular basis, plus I have a canny ability to tell if a house is welcoming or not. However, none of these are the basis for this post.

It was a rather disturbing event involving my son. He was four years old and we were spending Christmas at my mums, which we always did. We were in the kitchen at the time, my son was sitting on the counter after his turn at giving the Christmas Pudding a mix (a family tradition were you made a wish). All of a sudden, his head went back and he started to talk strange. At first, I thought he was having a fit, but then he started to tell my mum and I, how he had died during the war in a bomb attack on London. He was nineteen, but was saying he was okay now. Then as soon as it came, he was back to normal.

We questioned him for ages, both of us completely freaked out by his strange behaviour, remember, he was only four. But he couldn’t recall a thing he said, and wanted to get down and play.

To me, even with all the strange things I’ve experienced, that has always been the most surreal encounter I’ve ever had.

    I have always heard because children are so innocent they see and hear things that we are too busy to notice. great post and thanks for the ping back

    • sarahneeve says:

      That is so true, as an innocent, children’s eyes are still open to things an adult cannot see. Just wish I lost that ability when I was younger. 😉
      And you’re more than welcome. 🙂

    strange things happen and they do happen. for a while I thought a spirit took possession of your son which I don’t want to happened. I believe you sarah

    • sarahneeve says:

      Thank you, its a concept quite a few people laugh about. And to this day he still doesn’t remember the episode. But he’s okay, it never affected him in any way. Well, except he was a stroppy teenager growing up. 😉

    Yow — what an experience. My grandmother told me the story once that she was in bed during WWII and she woke and had a vision of her son (who was in the Navy) wreathed in smoke and calling out to her.

    Two weeks later, she received a telegram from the Navy that his submarine was lost that night she awoke, had not been found since and was presumed sunk with all hands lost.

    • sarahneeve says:

      Strange things happen, especially the link between a mother and her children. But as to who my son was connecting to, I have no idea. It was the only time something like this happened, which I’m grateful for.
