Is There an Afterlife?

I personally believe there is lan afterlife. however I have not a clue what that life is like. I had an experience 12 years ago--almost 2 years after my mother passed on that has led me to believe there is a hereafter.

My mother died in 1996, and when two years passed I certainly was not focused on expecting her to return. I have to admit I did look for clues right after she passed. I had a decent relationship with my mother and remember with fondness a wonderful childhood. Things changed when I became an adult and we had many challenges until she died. There are too many reasons to mention why we had problems and my purpose here is not to discuss our past relationship. So fasten your seatbelts, read on and you let me know whether or not you think she returned.

The Beginning

Strange things started happening around the house. At first I just brushed them off and thought I was just being forgetful.

  • I put down one coffee cup and when I returned to the room there were two cups. My husband was upstairs so he couldn't have done this.
  • A picture hanging on the wall was slanted--no big deal except it was in a place where no one passed by--I straightened the picture and the next time I looked--it was slanted again.
  • I was looking for my glasses one day and dumped out my purse to find them as I was prone to just throwing them in my purse.--no glasses to be found. When I came back in the room I checked my purse again and there they were.

These are just a few of the things that happened. I tried talking to my mother and asking why she was moving everything. I also asked if she had a reason to return after two years.

The Coincidence

While living in Houston,Texas I ran a gift basket business. I generally used a delivery service to deliver my baskets or my husband did this job. However I decided to do this particular delivery as my husband was out of town and I wanted to get out of my office. I was delivering a gift basket for the owner of The Aquarian Bookstore". It was a store that carried a huge inventory of occult related books plus spiritual and self-help books. While dropping the basket off I just happened to ask an employee if she knew of a person who could converse with the deceased. She did not know anyone who did, but said she would ask the owner when she returned.

I got a call about an hour later from the owner of the bookstore. She told me that a woman who came into the store only once a year to purchase a calendar, overheard them talking about channeling. She told the owner that she was able to channel to those who have passed on. She left her phone number and said it was okay for me to call. I called her and we set up an appointment to get together. It was interesting to me that she just happened to come into the store at that moment.

The Channeler

The chaneler came over to my office and noticed my cat pictures on the wall and she sort of laughed.The only questions she asked me about my mother was when had she passed away, and if I knew of any reason why she would return. I knew she was legitimate as she did not charge me money for the visit. She told me that my mother didn't like animals, especially cats. My mother hated cats. I did not give the channeler any clues about my mother's personality.

She then began "talking" to my mother. My mother felt she shouldn't have died because the stupid doctors didn't know how to treat her properly. She also told the channeler to apologize to me and my sister. She knew she did many wrong things wrong but felt she did the best she knew how to do.

She told the channeler that I should buy a small frame and put a special picture of her that I had. She told the channeler I would know what picture she meant. She wanted me to put a rose in front of it. My mother mentioned that I had very good taste and would pick a lovely frame. Now all of this may not seem like much. but I knew it was my mother. She used to always tell me what good taste I had and I could almost hear her saying these words. A few months went by and I was looking for holiday items for my gift basket business. I picked up a lovely frame and remembered what the channeler had said. I took it home and the picture I had of my mother fit in perfectly. I also had gold rose that was another purchase for my business. To this day the picture and rose sit on my desk. In fact I am looking at it right now.

She told me many other things and finally my mother got annoyed at the conversation and didn't understand why the channeler had sought her out. The channeler asked my mother why she didn't want to go to heaven as she was still in limbo, and my mother answered her by telling her that she hated all the relatives and didn't want to be near them. That was my mother!

The next day my husband came in from the garage and he was almost hyperventilating. We had boxes with bottled peppers in them left over from the holidays..They were open at the top like wine bottle boxes. These boxes were neatly turned upside down stacked on top of each other on the car. They did not fall as the would have shattered.

Several years later Jim came home from putting gas in his motorcyle and when he went into his pocket he noticed that his wallet was missing. He told me this as he entered the house. He went back to the store and it wasn't there.He bought a new wallet, cancelled credit cards and got a new driver's license. Two months later I went into my purse to get a credit card out. Now I did this a hundred times before this date. The wallet was sitting on top of everything in my purse. I felt goosbumps on my arms. And to top it off the day before I had totally dumped out my purse looking for something.



The Finale

Actually there is no finale to my experience, as I am not sure what this all means. However, we were robbed while living in Florida and my husband's new wallet was stolen as well as my entire purse. Maybe she was warning us with hiding Jim's wallet in my purse.

No more strange things have happened since the last experience, well maybe occasionally--but I tend to brush them off. All in all it was quite an experience. Once in a while I do hear her call my name and loud enough for me to look up. The bottom line is whether you believe there is an afterlife.

      wow, Im kind of in the boat I dont really know where I stand on the subject. However, I was very close to my grandma she passed away 3 years ago. I was deveasted and to this day still have a hard time dealing with it on some days. There are times where out of blue I will get a wif of her scent but that's not the only strangest thing that's happened. I was promised by my grandma her wedding ring we wore the same size and when she had passed away to make a long story short certain relatives pretty much got everything I was heartborken I didnt care about the money or anything else I just wanted the ring well the other day my daughter found a ring on top of the mircowave and she asked me if it was mine. I looked at it and I thought I was gonna pass out I was shaking and trembling and I screamed for my hubsand and when I showed him the ring we both looked as if we had just saw a ghost. It was her ring I don't have a clue how it got into my possesion other than to say thank you Grandma!!!

      BIllybuc: Thanks for stopping by and yes there is another dimension out there. And everything did happen. The thing was the wallet that came from nowhere.

      Carol, I am a firm believer in the hereafter too. I have a few close to me, including my grandparents and have also had some experiences that would unexplained too if not for the hereafter with my both my grandmother and grandfather, so I can totally relate. I totally believe your experience and thank you for sharing. Have voted, shared and tweeted too!!

      I have an open mind about this Carol and have had a few odd experiences myself over the years, including walking into my bedroom to find it filled with the scent (she always wore the same one) of my recently deceased great-aunt to whom my mother was very close. I think it's quite nice for you that your mom has stuck around for a while to keep an eye on things.

      Thanks for stopping by and it is fun to find out that others have had interesting experiences also. My mother was very troubled in her later years and had many problems. I hope she has found some peace because she was basically a very good human being and very generous.

      carol...Is there a significance to the fact that you repeated that you bought a frame for your Mom's picture and set it in your home with a gold rose in front of it? Did something inspire you to do this twice?

      I just read a similar hub, about mysterious happenings being related to messages from deceased loved ones. "Craiglin" wrote an interesting hub about her late husband, similar to your experience.

      Like bill, I keep an open mind and to be perfectly honest, I can't think of anything more exciting than to KNOW that someone is communicating with us from beyond. I would love to have this occur for me.

      Honestly, with the three occurrences you list In The Beginning......there's not enough detail given for a reader to decide whether to accept or reject curious activity.....as in the 2 cups.......were you completely ALONE in the house at the time? and how are you positive the other cup was not simply there before you left the room, but you just didn't see it? A slanted picture can be explained by vibrations of all sorts in any home, caused by movement, traffic, sound....and as for your glasses....after you emptied your purse and before you walked away......could your glasses have fallen from being on your head (as in a head band as we often push our glasses up like that)....or perhaps hanging around your neck? If so, they may have fallen the moment you moved to turn around and you simply weren't aware. Understand, please, I'm being the skeptic, merely suggesting possible explanations. I am in no way not believing these things actually happened to you.

      I'd like to study this phenomenon. It's very intriguing. UP ++

      Actually I didn't mention the frame twice. First I mentioned that my mother wanted me to buy the frame..I forgot about it until a few months later and found the perfect frame for the picture and set it out. Thanks so much as I know you really read the hub. As for the glasses...I am quite sure that happened. And my husband was still upstairs when the cup thing happened. I felt the same way ..but there were many things that happened during that period..too many to shrug off to coincidence. I loved that you replied with all you said...and as always sometimes I wonder...But the bottles--that was creepy. We laughed about it later and thought my mother had to work hard at ghost school to learn that. Thtanks for all the comments..loved reading them.

      I did have an experience with a heavy coffee table lifting from the floor as I talked about not being afraid living in a house someone had died in (no relation to me) and although I believe the bible teaches us not to dabble in spiritual things such as this it does not deny its existence so I guess it could be dangerous. My mom passed away two years ago and I do feel her presence at times and sometimes hear her call my name just as I did as a child out playing.

      Beloved pets also come back. After the death of our cat, Sneakers, we were devastated. We got a new kitten, hoping to fill the huge hole in our lives. We noticed that the kitten suddenly started hanging out in Sneakers' favorite spots and displaying a lot his endearing quirks. We would laugh and say, "Just like Sneakers!" Then one day we noticed that whenever we said that, the kitten would slowly wink at us with his left eye. Sneakers was blind in his left eye. We were so happy that Sneakers was back to help the new kitten get acclimated.

      I do believe there is a hereafter and that those who have died can communicate with us in many different ways.

      A few years after my brother died, his adult daughter became pregnant with his first grandchild. Just before, and for about a month after, the baby was born my doorbell mysteriously rang a number of times and no one would be at the door when I answered it. The strange thing was that each time this happened I was thinking of my brother and feeling misty eyed that he would be missing out on this great event. One time I was actually writing a note to his daughter when the bell rang on its own and in the letter I was stating that he would have been so proud of her and happy that she was going to have a baby. It was then that I connected the mysteriously ringing doorbell with my brother and "felt strongly" that it was him signaling he was joyous about the birth.

      Thanks for sharing your experiences after your mother's death. I love the fact that you honored her spirit by choosing a special frame for a photo of her and a gold rose and still have them on your desk.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, beautiful and interesting.

      I can definitely relate to what you have experienced. My mom passed away a little over three years ago, and while living in her house by myself, along with many of our beloved cats, I have experienced many strange things. Doors, especially closet doors, are always open in the morning when I get up, knowing for certain they were closed before I retired for the evening. I know my mom is here with me in the house. My mom and I were extremely close.

      Thank you for writing this fascinating hub, an extremely interesting read!

      Sorry, don't believe in channelers, ghosts or apparitions. If a person sees such things, they are straight from Satan. The Bible says that the dead do not know the living. It also says that we are not to summon soothsayers, witches or channelers.

      I know this isn't probably what you want to hear, but the Bible is pretty clear on such things. If you want specific verses, I'll be glad to do a little research for you.

      Personally, I find it comforting that the dead cannot communicate with the living or vise versa. The thought of someone being a ghost and haunting people just doesn't appeal to me at all, except maybe as a good movie.

So to read your experiences with your Mother addes credence to my belief that others do communicate with us . We just need to pay attention and listen. Thank you for sharin your story.

      I read this when you published it. I liked it a lot but didn't comment because I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Well last night I experienced something and today I knew I just had to pay this hub another visit.

      Last night I had just laid down in bed, said good night to my hubby and then a few minutes later I started getting intense feelings, thoughts and memories about my late Aunt. This went on for a little while and eventually brought me to tears. My husband comforted me and then told me that he was kinda creeped out. Just before I came to bed our dog was laying down near my husband's side. She suddenly got up and started sniffing intensely near my side. My husband thought it was very strange but didn't say anything at the time. We both believe my aunt was paying me a visit. She left me with some very inspirational thoughts and I'm making sure to remember and listen to them.

      Thank you for sharing this. voting it up!

      I always like to think that I'm simply overlooking something when things like this happen to me. But I do have a spiritual side and I don't rule out other possibilities either. You never know.

      My mother used to like butterflies. Ever since she passed away I have noticed a soul butterfly follow me around in many places when I'm outdoors. It's kind of weird because it's not just a butterfly here and there. But when a single butterfly insists on following along as you go walking somewhere, that's strange!

      I hadn't had any experienced like yours, and I hope I wouldn't as I'm a scaredy-cat, but I do believe on the afterlife. :) And yeah, I just remember, there were few times I would smell flowers which I believed would be my grandmother. The day we learned about her passing, I'd say she got there minutes before the messenger arrives to tell us the news. I would never forget that as I am having asthma that day. Then all of a sudden I could smell flowers, like jasmine, strange, I brushed it off and less than 30 minutes a messenger arrived with the message of grandma's passing.

      Carol I do believe in the hereafter.. After my mom died a year half ago.. She kept calling me at night when I would be trying to go to sleep..... at first I thought she was in the room with me. I would turn on the light looking for her... and finally I asked her what did she want.. I was crying because I missed her so much... Dad said she followed him around the house for months after she died. she has finally settled down and I believe she is in heaven with Jesus.. I think she was just worried about us..

      God Bless you

      Susan Zutautas 4 years ago from Ontario, Canada

      I believe in the hereafter as well as in people that can communicate with the dead. I have a family member that has had conversations with my mother who died when I was 3, and has relayed messages to me from her. This is a family member through marriage and the things that my mother and her discussed were not things that she would have ever known about. Many other things have happened through my life that make me a believer.

      I have a poem that I wrote called "A Message Perhaps" that you might like.

      I found your hub very interesting.

      Carol this is a great hub because I definitely believe in the hereafter, and that the line between their existence and ours is very thin; in fact ofttimes non-existent when a person's spiritual self is strong enough to supersede our "reality".

      I have had such encounters, and I relish them because they let me know those I so miss our still around me!!!

      Excellent subject and so well done my friend!!!!

      Thank you so much and I do appreciate the compliments from you. It is an amazing topic and one that has not been researched nearly enough..But it will as the years pass.

      I think now and again a spirit does manage to bridge the gulf that separates the physical and spiritual realm. I believe one of the forces that can bridge that gap is love, but I'm weary because I think that hate and deception can also break through, and it's a risky call sometimes particularly for some who are very vulnerable. By the sound of your story, it seems that she found a way to show you her love! Thanks and Happy Holidays!

      I was happy that she returned as we had a challenging relationship during her later years. Thanks for stopping in and you also have a happy new year.

      Carol - I happened to be cruising your profile page and came across this amazing hub. I send many thanks to penning this as I truly believe and know there is a hereafter as well as a way for our dearly departed to communicate. I will not go into my many experiences as I do not want to hijack this hub. Lets just say I was somewhat skeptical at one point in my life and am now a 100% believer. And it takes a great incident to change my mind, but change I did.

      Great write Carol!

      Thank you and why not write a hub about them.. I personally would love to hear about your experiences. It would confirm some of my occasional doubts. Thanks so much for support and friendship here at Hub.
