Apportation - The Moving of an Item from One Area to Another

Updated on December 8, 2012

Craig is Near

Since my husband crossed over, nearly two years ago now, I have received many wonderful gifts in the way of signs and messages to show me that he is still here in spirit looking over me.

In the early stages things that "seemed to have moved", would be just slightly in a different position, but in the same spot. Oftentimes these incidences are easy to miss because as human beings we are all a little bit skeptical, and it is natural to question ourselves. "Could I have moved that" - or "maybe I just don't remember it being like that". Little by little the moving of things became a little stronger, like the first time I woke up to find his pillow against me, and knew for certain that I had not moved it.

So many things were happening to me that I joined several different spiritual message boards desperately needing the company of others who were experiencing the same thing, people who could also validate that "no I was not losing my mind". Throughout this last year I started hearing more and more - "you should be writing about your experiences". Indeed I had been documenting my signs and messages over a year and a half and found that I easily had enough to put a book together and so I did. At the time of writing this hub, my book was just about a month away from being published. And up to this point nothing had been physically moved "from one spot to a completely different spot" until the lavender sachet pillow incident.

I am what you could call quite "anal". Suffice it to say that when I make my bed in the morning - everything is neat and tidy, with pillows placed nicely and bedskirts all straight - LOL. In fact my husband used to stand in the doorway oftentimes when I was making the bed and mimic what I was doing "smoothing the bedding, and plumping pillows".

My Gift From Craig

The Lavender Sachet

Last summer my friend and I went out to a Lavender farm and I came back with a sachet for my bedroom - it is in the form of a small pillow. I tried to sleep with it, but could not - because the lavender aroma, while lovely, was just too strong and I knew I would get a headache with it next to my head. So in the early days that I had it I would place it on my night table. Even then I had to turn away from it.

These days it is not as strong, the lavender aroma has lessened quite a bit. But still I do not put it in my bed. When I wake up in the morning, and after making my bed, it gets placed on an angle smack in the middle of the bed and on top of the comforter. Did I mention I can be "anal"?

At night I have a specific routine. When I get into my PJ's I always get my bed ready for sleep. I remove the 3 decor pillows and put them on my loveseat nearby. The lavender sachet gets smoothed out and placed next to them on the loveseat. With the shams on the floor I turn down the comforter and top sheet and lay the bed pillows down flat -ready for sleep. Then I always go and watch a bit more TV. Now don't worry I can deviate from this routine - sometimes I just get right into bed - : )

But on this particular night I followed through and after getting everything ready for sleep I went back into the great room to watch a bit more TV. When I was ready for bed I went into my ensuite bathroom and brushed my teeth and then turned to walk back into the bedroom. I stopped dead in my tracks as I saw the lavender sachet on my bed and resting up against my bed pillow - nicely pushed into it as though someone had pushed it in with their hand. Quite simply it had managed to find its way from the loveseat, two feet away, and onto my bed, nestled against my pillow. I just stopped and stared, and then smiled. I knew without a doubt that I did not put it there - for all of the reasons that I have mentioned above. Of course I got my camera out to document this latest happening. And when I climbed into bed I heard Craig speaking to me. "Yes Lynnie, I put it there. It is my gift to you as you are nearing the completion of your book".

My Second Incident of Apportation

Not too long ago I had a pile of about 6 Real Estate Magazines that I had left stacked on my den floor as I would be working with them the next morning. On top of these magazines I had two samples of paint colours from Home Depot.

The next morning when I walked into my den this is what I saw on the floor.


One magazine was off the top of the stack and was now a few inches away from the original stack and facing toward the others. And the two paint samples were still on the original stack. How did this magazine manage to get off that stack, turn completely around and not remove the paint samples? And then I remembered the night before when I turned off the computer and then turned to the opposite end of the room from where the books were - to turn out the lights. Walking back behind my computer chair the side of my foot hit something. I did not turn on the light to see what it was knowing that the books were on the floor and went off to bed.

Now I stood looking at this pile, trying to figure out if I could have kicked that one magazine off the top. Really!! How in the world could it turn completely around like that and land in that straight position, and how could those paint chips stay on the original stack, leaving the stack perfectly lined up? My answer is "it couldn't" and I knew I had my second case of apportation.


A Candle Apportation

A very good friend told me a story back about seven years or so ago. She went to bed one night and decided to read for a while before going to sleep. Propping herself up in bed she lit a candle that sat on her night table next to her bed, grabbed her book and began to read. Some time later she fell asleep.

When she awoke in the morning she immediately had a start remembering the candle. Looking at the night table she did not see it. She got up and went into her ensuite bathroom and there sitting on the vanity was her candle, snuffed out. As she told me this story she laughed and repeated to me how her mother used to say to her, "Barb, one night you're going to burn the house down". Another beautiful case of apportation, and a mother, in spirit, looking out for her daughter. She has not had a candle by her bed since!

      Oh I love that story Jay - how neat is that! One of my husband's nieces was awakened one morning by her mother (in spirit) yanking the bed covers off of her and telling her it was time to wake up. Thanks for coming by and reading my story. It is very much appreciated.

      I have never experienced an Apportation before, but after my grand father died (me and my grandpa were never close), my aunts and uncles started experiencing apportations. My aunt especially experienced one that changed her life forever.

      It was a Sunday afternoon and the rest of our family was at our local church. My aunt was sitting on the couch watching television. All of a sudden, she felt the couch tip forward, throwing her off from the cushions. She heard a voice that said "Go to church...". It was the voice of my grandpa. Since then she has attended church.

      Great Hub!

      Thank you Claire. I am trying to figure out what hot water you got into and would like to hear more.

      Loved you story Lynda, I wish I could go back again to the way it was before I got myself into hot water. It's still getting less and less but taking it's time, I think I am getting the occasional sign but can't be sure. I just love your connection and totally believe it, Hugs, Claire.

      Yes Anne - I believe the key is to "remain open" to the possibilities. I have a friend who lost her husband about a year and a half before mine. I asked her if she experienced anything - and she said "no" but then said she is far to pragmatic for that. Also some people may be either afraid - or simply not interested. Each to their own for sure.

      Hi Lyne. I know all about this stuff, and there can be no denying what is happeneing. Our loved one´s do come back in spirit all the time, and if you are not " getting the message" they will do all in their power to let you know they are indeed still with us. All it takes to connect with those we love who had passed is the willingness to believe, and the signs will be clearly seen, or felt. I can´t wait until your book is published, for me it´s going to be a must read. Thank you so much for sharing these incredible happenings. :)

      I understand what you are saying. Thanks so much for replying to my question...Thank you for the name of your book, also..

      Hi fperj - I have had so much happen to me that while at first questioning and for sure hoping, I reached a point where I could no longer deny. My book "A Breath Away" documents a lot of these happenings -as well as I have some photos in it. This incidence has taken place since I wrote my book. When I say I hear Craig speaking to me - no, it is not a voice - it is thoughts that go through my head that I know are not mine. Energy is involved as well. I plan on writing a hub about that some time soon.

      whonunuwho - thank you for sharing all of your experiences with me. It just confirms and validates for me once more that these things indeed are real. Luckily I have many friends who are on the same page - some look at me and want to hug me because they are afraid I am going to break - : ). Those ones will get it one day when it happens to them. Thanks for reading my post - I surely appreciate it.

      I am paying attention. Although I, myself, have experienced what, at the time, I believed to be spiritually-manipulated experiences.....I remain "teetering" between utter belief and accepting realistic explanations for these happenings. What you describe is beyond this.

      Funny, you mention your camera...because as I read, I was thinking, "She should probably photograph a particular be able to accurately compare it to the same scene, later on." ....just to RECONFIRM, if only to herself, that a distinct change has occurred."

      All I can say In your case, I can understand how comforting this must be for you to feel your husband is very much THERE with you!! Just one question.....When you say you "heard Carig speaking," to you mean AUDIBLY...or merely a "thought" of him speaking to you? Very fascinating hub. UP+++

      Yes, I truly believe our loved ones show us that they are still near. My grandmother appeared in the form of a green aura near the doorway at the funeral home to see who came to her funeral,no doubt. My father seemed to always turn on and off lights when they were left on or the stove when it may have been left on prior to cooking. My son after his death, knocked on our windows and my daughter's window at her home, also. So did this happen to a fond nephew who I had taken fishing with me once, after his car accident and death. A small child dressed in Knickers(Pants tucked under at the knees) and reminiscent of the eighteen hundreds, sat in my van next to me,(witnessed by my wife and daughter} came in and out of our rooms at night, and cut on and off lights. When we went to a local cemetery to search, we found where he may have been a child to die of a plague and that his mother was buried in the same cemetery, where we found her separate grave site from the similar time period. After showing this child the marker, in our efforts, and with his mother's name on the marker, he seemed to vanish over night and we never saw him again. As we left our home in the late 90's and after we moved away because of tragedy, a music box that we had overlooked in a back bathroom played its forlorn tune,"These Were the Days", and one which no one had seen or heard in weeks. Yes, our loved ones and many other spirits who have been somehow attached to our lives, appear to us all in some unusual manner from time to time. Nice remembrance and good writing.
