Back in the mid 1970’s while growing up in Hoffman Estates, IL I lived in a house that was haunted by Ghosts and shadow people. Besides the standard normal hauntings, there was a period of time that I was also terrorized and attacked by little demons. They would peer out of the walls, walk out of, into, or fly out of (as a black mass) closets and dark corners of the house.
Where they came from or why, I still to this day have no idea. Years of Ouija board use? …maybe.
I became so terrified as a child that I slept with the lights on, slept with my back to the wall each night, and had by me a glow in the dark plastic toy sword my mom got me to help me feel safe at night. I even ended up placing a last rites cross, with candles and Holy Water beside my bed each night. Not sure why I used a last rites cross, probably not the best idea. As a child I had no idea what it was really used for and always felt having the cross on display would be like having Jesus besides me while I slept.
While this is an extremely long story of events and encounters, I have decided to post some of these drawings to better illustrate what I saw. The drawings at the end are encounters when they, Imps and what I assume was a Lord Demon, returned and appeared during 2009-2011 after 35 years.
Last encounter was with an Imp (same as the full body creature in the closet) just over a month ago (December 2013).
Please note I am a Catholic and a very spiritual person. I have also seen many heavenly angels throughout my life, which is a whole story on its own. I am only discussing these creatures right in this posting to bring to attention that these things exist and more people need to be aware. There has been angel and demon interaction that I have witnessed as well, such as a battle that occurred when the lord demon appeared.
I discuss both Angels and Demons in many of my lectures and those of you who have seen me speak may remember these encounters. Some I have spoken of publicly in the past. Do not under any circumstance try to contact or investigate these creatures. They can spread like a virus. I would rather have people pray to God, put your faith in Jesus Christ and pray for protection for yourself and loved ones. Angels do watch over us and go to battle each and every day for our souls and spirits over the dark forces that reside on our planet. I would never have realized to what levels this occurs if not for the things I have seen and witnessed. Whether you are of faith or not, I hope you realize that there are forces we do not understand. Both Good and bad. Regardless of your beliefs I hope you one day you put your faith in the good over the bad.

Spirit Box Session in my house where the name “IMPS” was revealed to me.
The door bell rings; I look out the window UPS truck begins to pull away. No big deal I get packages all the time.
What is it that makes this so special?
Exactly, a minute before the doorbell rang; images popped into my head of an order I placed last week for some herbs I ordered from Mountain Rose Herbs. Green Tea, Chia seeds, etc. I saw them in my mind and then the act of putting them all away in containers in my kitchen. Now you may be asking why is this significant, why is this odd? Let me explain. I had just gotten out of the shower and was drying my hair. I have tons of work to do today and this evening. This was the last thing on my mind. Why did this image, this thought, suddenly appear in my head?
A minute later, the doorbell rings a package is left at my front door. Once dressed I open the front door and retrieve the package from the steps. Bring it into the kitchen and open it. It is the box of herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs. I begin to take them out and package them into containers and put them away. It hits me, Deja Vu? Here I am doing exactly what popped into my head when I came out of the shower when I hadn’t even received this package yet. Was this Pre-cognition of an event, now happening, coming to pass?
Now while this is not as significant as say a vision of a car crash, a disaster, or winning a football game, it still has to be acknowledged for what it is. ESP.
The knowing of something destined to occur, without the use of my 5 senses, was being driven down the street with a destination to my home and to me. At that moment of it down the street on its way was enough to affect the field of energy we all have around us, therefore changing our future and mindset.
I have talked about how we are all connected and at times when our environment changes or something comes into it; we can recognize it and pick up on what it is or where it is coming from. This I believe was one of those occurrences.
As well as the act in my mind before the event, of putting everything away. Even though my schedule was already written out for me today to do other things. The truth of the future tends to inform us otherwise.
1/12/13 – The Ghostly Door Bell Rings again
Saturday morning at 8:30am I heard a doorbell. I shot up, looked around the room and glanced at the clock. Who would be ringing the doorbell Sat morning at 8:30am? I then realized, wait a minute, once again that didn’t sound like my doorbell. I got up anyway and looked out the window, no car, no one outside. Then it hit me; this has happened many times before. The sound of a doorbell. I tested it years ago. The sound I heard, at least 10x over the past four years, and quite frankly, eerily around the same time between 8-9:00 am, is not my doorbell I have in this current house. My ex and I tested it a few years ago, having both been woken up by this mysterious door bell sound. A sound that is clearly a doorbell, but is different sound as the doorbell I have in my current house. We have both sat outside pressing the ringer and clearly agreed it is not the same sound that we have heard, not at all.
So where does this doorbell sound originate from? I cannot answer that, but the one interesting thing is, it started occurring after I visited my old house I grew up in and lived in from 1970-1991 and went back to in Jan of 2009. Since then it started later that year. The doorbell sound is identical to the one I grew up in, even though I don’t live there anymore.
Why does it go off between 8-9am in the morning?
I can’t say with 100% certainty why it does it at that time, the only thing that has any similarity to that time period is that is the time I used to always wake up at years ago between 2000-2009, but more importantly that is also the time period my father was transported from the care center to the hospital when he passed away back in 2009 during the hours of 8-9am on a Saturday morning.
Is it the ghosts from my previous house or is it my father? Or is someone telling me I need to go to bed earlier and wake up earlier? I don’t know for sure, but I have decided to work towards changing my sleeping schedule to go to bed earlier and wake up at that time. Why not? they tend to keep waking me up any ways at that hour.
1/9/13 -The Ghost At Yoga
I went Yoga today. Hot Yoga, felt good getting all the kinks and sore muscles stretched as well as how great it is for the body and sweating out toxins. So what is remarkable about this? Well, after class as I was one of the few left in class, I got up walked out and put the mat in the bin, there was no one else around me nor in the hallway when I heard a loud quick whisper like voice screech out “Chrisssss!” I turned around behind me and there was no one there. Chills race down my spine.
The sound of it, the oddness of it. So similar to voices I have heard in the past. Spirits, ghosts. As soon as I recognized there was no one behind me, I raced towards some of the opened darkened rooms to see if there was anyone visible or present. I then listened from the bathrooms to hear if anyone was talking or whispering to try to place the sound. I could not. I ended up feeling that it was a spirit, someone (female sounding) that was just speaking, letting me know they were there. It was about a month ago that while I was up front of the Yoga center speaking to three people I noticed someone lean over and peak their head around the wall to see what we were doing. Catching it in the corner of my eye, I turned to see who it was, as well as another witness in the corner of his eye. Perplexed as the person quickly pulled their head back behind the wall. We both reacted. I strutted towards the hallway to get a better look to see who it was and to my surprise, as well as my friends, there was no one there. Seconds later a man walks around the corner down the hallway, so I asked him if he saw anyone walk down the hallway to which he responded ” No, just me. ”
I then asked him if he was at this moment up front a minute ago, and he responded ” No; I just came from the training room. ” Realizing he had no idea what I was referring to, I walked past some of the rooms that were closed or had doors open to see if someone was playing a trick. Of course, no one was there.
I walked back to the front, looked at my friend and the receptionist and laughed. ” Yup, you have a ghost! ”
We then began to discuss what just occurred and how two of us standing at different angles recognized a head and shoulders appear around the wall as if leaning over to get a better look and subsequently quickly vanish. Over the next few minutes, other stories came up about people feeling someone or seeing things in the place as well.
So I wonder, the voice that said “Chrisssss ” was it the same spirit that I saw a few weeks before. Maybe, only time will tell as I go back there every week.
The good thing is, I feel it is positive and was just making itself known. Hopefully soon, we will make longer contact. I am curious why they are there.
1/8/13 – The Illumination From Above
As if getting to bed is not hard enough. Around 3-4am I was woken up three times by a strange illumination above my bed. You know when you sleep and someone turns on the light. You open up your eyes and say ” Hey! Turn it off! ” Well, weirdly while I was in a deep sleep, I felt this light and slowly opened my eyes, as I did I witnessed with wonder, my arms, the sheets and the entire bed illuminated by some hovering source above the bed. It was different though from any other light, I have seen. It was warm almost like it permeated the darkness. Similar to night vision but more like a yellow almost red color at times. As I looked around the bed, I began to look up from where the source seemed to originate from, and as I adjusted to doing that the light quickly vanished, and the room went backward to darkness. I sat up looked around the room, and as puzzled as I was, went back to bed.
This happened three more times, each time it woke me up.
Since this is the first time I have ever witnessed this phenomena in my house, I can only purpose two of the following possibilities;
First let me say, it was clearly not a dream, as I was woken up three times, I looked at the clock; I moved about, and I remembered it each time when I was woken up again.
It could not be any light from outside as I have blinds and drapes covering the windows. It almost pitch dark in my room except for moonlight illumination coming from the hallway, and the bathroom since I have a sunlight window in the ceiling. Even if light shown through that it would not reach my bed or where I was sleeping.
These are the only two possible things I can think of that have occurred;
1) It was a ghost or angel hovering above the bed coming through the wall or ceiling, glowing and therefore illuminating the bed and me below it. I have seen glowing ghosts before and how they can sometimes light up a room with a greenish blue type glow. This was a slightly different color, but nothing less similar in the way the light bounced off the sheets.
2) I was having an Out of body experience and in my spiritual mind (the mind outside the body and the brain) my soul was capable of seeing in the dark and illuminating the room through a much more increased visual spectrum then our humans’ eyes are allowed to see while in the body. Almost like a night vision. If you think of it, why wouldn’t a soul be able to see in darkness in a home if it wanted to? This may account for the awakening feeling, and as I tried to see it, vanished as if I was coming to awaken conscious instead of sleeping and being out of the body as I may have just been. The only reason I suggest this as a probability is because I have been having some remarkable OBE’s in the past 12 months. I feel my consciousness may be evolving as my awareness and research have been increasing into other frames of thinking about the soul and afterlife.
Either way, whether it was one or two, it was a remarkable experience to have to occur three times that night.
1/5/13- The Famous Angel
Had a wonderful dream. An angel pretended to be someone famous in the Hollywood industry speaking to me as a friend. We laughed and laughed and then he changed to his true form (an angel) and told me I needed to write. After I said, ” We should do a comedy movie together! ” He turned to me, laughed and said ” Yes, but you have to write it! ” After he said that in the dream, it hit me and the words echoed….”write…write…write”. I took that as a sign, so this entire, year, as I am currently, I will be writing. What will I be writing? Well, you will soon see… I don’t want to give it all away. I have already begun and still have a lot to finish. I feel it was a very prophetic message for me.
1/2/13 – The Growl From An Angry Visitor
A bad thing/Good thing happened two days after new years eve and one crazy night- a night that, let’s just say something happened to where I had to get involved to help a complete stranger and put myself in a dangerous physical situation to save them. A situation where, luckily, I overcame it, stopped what was happening and I am man enough to say, still a bit sore to this day. I felt there was something evil that created that situation, something controlling another person that caused them to do what they did, and then somehow someway, being in the right place at that precise moment on that street, got me involved to cause a change. If it was evil, attempting to do what it was doing, the outcome ended up different than what it expected. A person was saved, and possibly this other person was taught a very important lesson. Heck, I even learned something myself about the situation and how we all need to at times stand up for what we believe in, regardless of the danger, but for what we believe is right for another human being. No matter how great nor how small, no matter how rich nor how poor every single life is worth saving, no matter what the cost to oneself.
Now back to what happened the morning of Jan 2nd. I woke up to a growling sound coming from my closet. A sound, that the only thing I could compare it to would be a wild dog, but a dog that is heavy, big and powerful. It reminded me mostly of the sound I heard and captured during the investigation in New Orleans for the TV show ” The Haunted.” Where I believe we came in contact with a demon.
As I heard this growl coming from my left closet, the whole room began to vibrate and shake. My bed began to shake violently seconds after the growl started, and with it. I sat up, my attention directed towards it- with the bed shaking it slowly stopped vibrating and came to its normal calmness. I looked in the direction of the closet, knowing full well that a demon was present and not happy with me. You could feel it, sense it – a presence, angry, maybe for what occurred New Years Eve. Maybe because I or the other person was not hurt in the way, it had hoped. Perhaps, because I got involved and stepped in. I am not certain, but I have been attacked before two years ago physically, but this is the first one that has made its presence known by growling in my room, in my house and shaking the room and bed.
As I stood up in bed, I spoke to it ” Yes, I hear you, what do you want? Why are you mad? You are not allowed here. I am sleeping… now go away! ” While most people would have screamed or raced out of the room, let alone the house, I am way to familiar with their tactics and how they try to instill fear or harm to those who they hate and do what they can to intimidate or instill fear by any means. If they don’t get their way, or you interrupt their evil work or doings, sometimes they strike back. Regardless, I laid down and said out loud ” Jesus…Michael….will you, please escort this demon out. He does not belong here ” and I went peacefully back to sleep. I am no longer a child, shaking in the dark. Those years, almost 40 years ago are long gone.
We arrived for an early dinner at a private golf resort for a turkey feast. My mom didn’t feel like making thanksgiving dinner, preparing the stuffing, nor cleaning the dishes. Fine by me, I didn’t feel like cleaning dishes either. A late night out Wed night wore me out, so I was all for it. As we sat down for a 4 course meal, my mom and step dad shared with me how Hobo, one of my moms 4 cats had suddenly fallen seriously ill late Wed night. Hobo is a solid grey cat, built like a truck, aged roughly 22-25 years old. No one knows for sure you see, how old he really is, because he was a stray that started appearing around their house over 21 years ago. Ray, my step dad built him a little box home outside so he could live in, but after a few months, my mom being a cat lover that she is, would have no more of that and quickly took him in.
For many years Hobo would try to make a break for outside – out the garage or the screen door. Ray would have to go out in the forest and find him. Over time he adjusted to the home, with an occasional cry as he looked out the glass sliding door at the birds and squirrels feeding off the bird feeders or taking baths in the bird bath. Nicely built and decorated in the corner of my parents little forest in their back yard. It kinda looked like a scene from an old disney flick, you know the one, Snow White, minus the snow white and dwarves of course.
Over the years, he became Rays buddy. My step dad was never a cat lover, but over time Hobo became his furry friend and took a liking to his lap. He would curl up with him or sit by his side and Ray soon began admiring Hobo’s courage and friendliness. Petting became a necessity for hobo. He always wanted to be pet. Sometimes jumping up on their laps when they were reading, or eating. Sometimes his neediness for attention became bothersome, but when visited I loved it. Affection is a quality lacking in many people, but when it comes to pets it’s amazing.
Hobo would walk up to anyone who entered the house and “always” wanted to be pet. He was known as “the friendly cat”. He soon became my personal favorite cat as well, well, at least every time I came over to visit. I would call for him and he would walk into the room, climb up on the couch and lay on my chest as I stroked his fur and rubbed his ears. Sometimes, I would lay on the floor pull him over and pet him there, it didn’t matter where, he would almost be saying to those that ignored him “Pet me dammit!” He would stick his tongue out every time I scratched his back right on cue. We would both take naps together. I loved that about him. A perfect lap, nap cat, well deserving of all the hugs and kisses he got.
My mom and Ray continued the story about Hobo, it seems he no longer had use of his back legs and was now confined to the floor in the living room, laying down on one side not able to get up or move. It happened that night out of nowhere. Did he have a stroke? We didn’t know for sure. Ray called the vets, but it was late and no one answered Wed evening, Thursday, they were closed, being Thanksgiving and all.
For years he had diabetes and had to be given shots and special medicines. My mom felt it was his time. I remember a few short weeks ago holding him and petting him, and saying to my mom “It’s going to be soon.” I felt it, there was that un settling feeling, this may be the last time I see you. Ever have that feeling? I have had it many times in my life, and sadly to say, I have always been right. I seem to get that sense before someone is going to die. Whether it be human or animal. Natural death or even suicide. When it is our time, it is our time no arguing with the grim reaper, they have an agenda written in stone. I feel, there may be a change in a persons energy as well, possibly preparation for the coming transition.
Mom and Rays fear was that after dinner, when they got home, Hobo maybe found dead on the floor. They felt he may be dying due to his old age. Trying to remain positive, due to his age, they couldn’t help but be a bit pessimistic. As we ate, I told her, call me when you get home, let me know how he is. I feel I want to come over and see him just in case.
After dinner, they dropped me off, I laid down for a bit for a nap. Turkey has that chemical you know, makes you sleepy. When I woke, I called and asked how he was doing. “The same,” she said. “No better then before.” She tried giving him some food and water and he only took a bit, not much.
Getting late, she said Ray was going to take him to the vet first thing in the morning and either have him put to sleep or find out if there is anything they could do.
I told her, call me, I want to go with, “NO, you don’t have to,” she said. “Why? why wouldn’t I go, I love him as well and I want to go.” Still, my mom felt it wasn’t necessary.
You see I wanted to go for two reasons. First I mean, come on I loved that cat. He was always friendly, loving and brought joy to me and everyone he came in contact with, why wouldn’t I go?
Second, I was curious. Death does not scare me, I feel for many it is a privilege. I know what exists on the other side. I know death is nothing to be feared and the process is an easy transition. Now I am not talking about how someone dies. Of course there are many ways to die, some not easy, some painful and some, well let’s just say, not a way to go that any of us would want – but, I am more curious about the transition and being there for it. I was there when my cat Tigger was put to sleep and held his body, felt a slight static breeze pass through my arms and then upon his passing witnessed a spirit come into the room that surprised the heck out of me and of course my mom, who was with me wondering who the hell I was talking to. I was there when Squirt was put to sleep, and my mom and I felt another presence, immediately after Squirt was pronounced gone by the doctor. We felt his late best friend, KIt Kat, who was put to sleep a year before. It was as if Kit Kat came back for him and made damn sure we felt it. It was a shock and a comforting feeling all in the same moment. Who would have ever expected or thought that was possible. Love exists in many ways on the other side and can be confirmed by their presence.
So for Hobo, my curiosity was…it was my responsibility to be there, to see him through, to be there for him, to hold him, give him courage and to honor not only his life, friendship and love, but also bid him farewell to a beautiful place I look forward to when my time comes.
Being a medium and psychic (I hate that word, Psychic, but whatever) I have had many experiences from place memory – residual energy where I have felt and seen people at the time of death leave their body and adjust to the realization they have just died. I have seen and felt it so many times that I feel I have died hundreds of times, different ways, through the minds and experiences of others. It’s a curious thing, how different people are in their perception of first realizing their own death. Not as many freak out as you would suspect. Some are surprised, some in awe, and some grateful to finally be free and back in control of their true spiritual form.
I wanted Hobo to have company, and company he did.
Ray called me in the morning and said that the vet was busy but could see us at 2:30pm. He told me I didn’t need to go, that he would take him, my mother couldn’t bear to do it this time after having been through it so many times before with her previous cats and of course accompanying me with mine. So they felt Ray would go alone. “Nope, I want to be there,” I said – “I will be over around 1:30pm.”
I arrived and as I entered the home my mom greeted me and began to cry, pointing to the corner of the living room where I saw a semi-lifeless grey body covered in a blanket. I laid down on the floor next to him and began stroking his head, he perked up and began sniffing, he soon recognized my scent.
He tried to get up, but couldn’t. He had no control or feelings in his back or hind legs. You would lift up his legs or tail and they would just sadly plop to the floor. No control, no life in them. It was as if half his body was already dead.
As I laid there next to him kissing his forehead and stroking his head, the blackness in my mind opened up. A tiny light began to open out of the darkness and I saw a small cat sitting there. I recognized it as “Peanut” a cat my mom and I shared many years ago before I moved out. This runt of the litter cat, who I also called “honey”, became Hobo’s best friend and was the first female cat we ever had. She was a beautiful Calico color. Tiny, but a sweetheart, until you tried to pick her up. She would have none of that. Scratches anyone?
As I saw this tiny dark figure of a cat sitting there, patiently waiting, an older man walked forward standing besides her. I pulled back my mind and with an awareness, a sense of knowing, felt….this was Hobos original owner, somehow he died and hobo became homeless. He loved his cat and has been waiting for him ever since. Amazed, I turned to my mom and said. “It’s okay, it’s time.” My mom said, “You can see that?” “Of course,” I laughed. While I didn’t expect this, I assured her “It’s going to be okay…it is time. They are waiting for him.”
I laid there for another half hour, petting Hobo and telling him it was going to be okay,
“You are going home my friend, how lucky you are, how lucky you are. We love you…thank you for all the years of love.”
My mom said her goodbyes and began to cry, calling out his name “My Hobo.” Ray walked over and gave her a hug to comfort her. I cried a bit because my mom did, but assured her again. “Mom, its okay, he is going home and Peanut is waiting for him…trust me, I see it.”
Ray got the car ready and I picked Hobo up gently with the blanket, the cat cried out a bit and hissed as we drove, he may have been uncomfortable in the upward position, so I set the seat backwards, at an angle allowing him more comfort on my chest. He quickly relaxed and calmed down. You see, it’s important to know, animals get scared like we do, plus they know when it is time, and can fear death no different then a human. It is our obligation, our responsibility, to be there for them all the way through. Especially, when they have given us years of love, joy and friendship. We must be there, side by side, the entire step of the way. It’s important to be there for those you love, especially near death.
As we pulled up to the vet, I got out and walked in cradling him in my arms, while Ray let the front desk know we were here to see the Doctor.
The receptionist brought us in and took some tests before the doctor came in. Ray and I held Hobo’s head as he laid on his side on the counter.
The doctor came entered and began testing his back legs, looking at his gums and eyes and felt that Hobo had a stroke or a nerve issue (Can’t remember the exact terms he said) but due to his age, there was nothing they felt they could do and the only possibly option was to put him to sleep. We agreed. We already had that feeling, that notion, that it was the only option we would have.
The doctor gave us some time with hobo, and I made it clear that we wanted to be in the room with him, holding him if we could, while he passed. The doctor understood and gave him a sedative. This allowed Hobo to go into a very calm relaxed state. As this occurred, Ray and I said our thoughts, thanking Hobo for all those years. I whispered into his ears and kissed his forehead while also looking in his eyes telling him I loved him. As Ray began talking to Hobo about when he first found him outside, I began to pray in my heart that someone would come help him cross over. I wanted to be sure that this cat would transition smoothly, calmly and not be alone. Seconds after stating this in my prayers, my attention drew to the corner of the room and I saw a bright white light, it became clearer the more I focused. It was a tall figure standing about 7 feet tall, cloaked in a white robe or garb. Pure white light, a brilliance to it’s face, like gold, but burning like the sun. Its hair was like strands of pure white and gold. It’s face almost featureless, due to the glowing and sunlike appearance. It radiated with intelligence, with purpose and with a calmness that was numbing, but in a good way. I looked back down wondering if I was imaging this. Was this wishful thinking? I wondered as well, but no matter how many times I looked away, I kept looking back up, away from Hobo to the corner of the room, in between the door and the wall and it was still there. My attention was being drawn to it again and again. I smiled, and tried not to giggle in joy. I could feel it now. A strong, beautiful presence filling me up inside. I had no choice but to keep it secret from Ray. We don’t really talk about this spiritual stuff as much as my mom and I do.
I looked towards it once more but this time in my mind I said, “Are you here to take Hobo and see him through to the other side?” A small smile began to appear on the shining face. “Yes” it’s expression shimmered. “You’re an Angel aren’t you?” I asked, “It nodded.” I figured that, even though I was not familiar with this type of angel, its form was somewhat different from other light beings I have seen before. It wasn’t a warrior angel, this was a smaller angel, simpler in it’s purpose, not here to battle, to protect or stand ground. It was here with one intention. I didn’t need to ask and I knew even if I wanted to, the angel wouldn’t say anymore then what I already assumed. Angels don’t talk, they have an agenda and purpose and their intent is to see it through, nothing more. I respect that. They have a job to do, from up high and they just do it. No questions asked. They don’t have time for chatter and it’s probably spiritual law for them “not” to deviate from their mission.
I smiled and looked down at Hobo, I whispered into his ear “I brought a friend for you,” tears streaked down my face. I held it back as much as I could. It was beautiful, but also heartbreaking all in the same instant. In one sense, I knew in a few moments Hobo would be gone, but also the happiness that overwhelmed me and filled me inside with our prayers do get answered. Here standing a few feet away from me was a glorious angel, with a simple caring, loving purpose. I cannot tell you, in any complete, fulfilling words, how powerful and comforting this really felt. It was immense.
The doctor walked in and a nurse accompanied him. I grabbed Rays right hand and pushed it under Hobos head neck and head, “I want you to hold him as well and take part of this, he was your cat.” The Nurse wrapped one of Hobo’s legs and the doctor inserted a tube into a vein before he inserted the needle. I whispered, “Go home my friend, you will be okay.” “Go to sleep now Hobo”, Ray said as well. In my mind, I responded to Rays remark, “Um, death is not going to sleep…..” Never mind, shacking my head, not everyone sees what I see, I directed my attention back to the cat. I had to focus, he was about to go through a spiritual transition.
The doctor injected the fluid and within seconds I felt a slight tingle and breeze come out of Hobos head and pass through my hands that were underneath his head. The doctor put away the syringe and reached for his stethoscope. Immediately, something grabbed my attention behind the doctor and ray, in-between them were the angel was standing, I noticed a small grey mass with four legs appear in the angels arms. I stared in joy as the form of Hobo appeared upside down cradled in his arms. The angel looked down at Hobo, smiled as the cat looked up at him, calm as could be, all four paws in the air. The angel then looked over at me, preciously cradling Hobo and never breaking smile. I looked down at Hobos lifeless body on the counter and then back up again towards this loving being. In a glowing white yellow light with a face as bright as the sun, the angel nodded with intent and purpose to complete it’s task, a glow of white light behind it shimmered as it turned into brighter white light behind it and vanished.
As the doctor was listening closely, leaning towards hobos lifeless body, for a heart beat with his scope, he kept moving to different sections of the cats stomach and body, I spoke out “Um, he’s gone Doc…he’s gone.” A few seconds later, as I decided to keep my mouth shut knowing full well that spiritually the cat already crossed, I had to patiently wait as modern day science and technology played catch up. The doc took off his scope, paused looking down and said. “He is” there’s no more breath,” then out of compassion for us and our emotions, bless him, he began hesitantly and carefully, telling us that we did the right thing, as I am sure he has done for so many other times for others during the passing of their pets. I smiled, “We know,” I said, “We Know.” After what I just witnessed, I knew, in my heart and soul everything was more then okay, it was divine.
At death you never know what to expect, you never know who is going to show up. I am grateful in what I saw. I didn’t tell Ray, but when we got home to the house, I told my mother. There was great comfort in that, for her, for me.
My faith, my belief, and all my years of experience has brought me to this. A glimpse of heaven, a glimpse of those that can come for us. Comforting as it is, it amazes me still. Keeps me humble, not being able to fully comprehend that great power and love that comes from the other side. Yet, these encounters always give me strength. Strength in knowing they exist, much more then there is in just belief. Hope can only go so far. The appearance of the angel gave me exactly what I needed, knowing I am on my path and for that I am eternally grateful.
What I do know for certain, for others to understand, is that Animals do have souls like you and I. Ray and I comforted Hobo all the way through, an angel allowed me to see itself, to bring comfort and awareness in its presence, but also to be there as needed, with intent and purpose. Seeing that Hobo was not alone, physically nor spiritually may be a lesson for all of us. Something to remember in the future.
When it is your time to take your pet to be put to sleep, go. Be there for him or her. No matter what type of animal you have. You owe it to them and they will always remember it.
While I know it’s hard and you might not feel you are emotionally strong enough, you need to be. Be there for them, during their passing no matter how hard it may be for you. I can promise you, it will mean the world to them and when your time comes, they will be there for you. Smiling and walking with you, as you cross over from your death. When it comes to love, like the light, love is eternal and can never, ever die.
Prayer, thoughts with pure intent and true love, can reach the highest levels of heaven. I have seen this time and time again.
Hobo has crossed. He is not alone on the other side. We are content with that. I witnessed another experience to add to the chapter of my life. I think of all the other cats and pets I have been there for, I look forward to the day when my time comes. Hobo, I know you will be there along with all the others waiting for me, and more newfound pets and friends I will meet in my life when that time comes.
Until then, take care my friend. Have fun running and chasing angels along the steps of Rainbow Bridge, you earned it.
As you may or may not know I live in a haunted house, a house that, well, it is new, so the old saying “If it is an old house it must be haunted” does not apply here. People have often asked me, “Is it because you are sensitive?” “Do they follow you?” The answer is, I really don’t know for sure. Some encounters in my house have been from ghosts following me from my previous home, back in Jan 2009, and some have somehow, someway followed me home from certain haunted locations I visit -Stanley Hotel back in 2008 was one case of a energy draining type of spirit.
Regardless, I am well aware of at least 4 ghosts that reside in my house and a, well I am not sure what to call it, lets just say “An evil Spirit”. A black mass that is occasionally seen, not only be me and my cats, but visitors and friends that come over. This is the same entity that threw a glass vitamin jar at me months ago from a cabinet. A bottle of echinacea anyone?
Early this morning, while I tossed and turned realizing I only had a couple hours left to sleep, the sun was already up and gleefully forcing its way through my blinds and curtains, the clock was patiently displaying 7:15am and someone in the house decided now was a good time to breath a loud moaning sigh. ‘MOaaaaauuuhhhhhhhhhh!” I looked up, glanced at the clock, stared at my cat on the floor and realized, well that’s the first. IT came from the hallway what seemed like the loft area. Same location were years ago the doors used to open by themselves frequently. This is the first time I have heard a Male spirit in my house speak out. Except for the shriek back in 2010, yeah that was a wonderful and freaking insane experience two years ago. Luckily I have the first one (Which was caught on EVP) on record and in my files. The DVP I heard is identical to that.
This phenomena, called “Direct Voice Phenomena” is similar to EVP except you hear it live, without a recorder and without playback. You hear it with your own ears as it happens. A disembodied voice, loud enough to wonder, and for some throw into a huge panic and anxiety attack “Who the hell is in my house?” In my case, I was thinking more of a, for only a brief moment mind you, “”Hmmm, must be the male ghost. I wonder why he let out a sigh? Oh, well back to sleep”.
It seems DVPS are becoming more frequent. It was only 4-5 days ago I heard the little girl, yes there is a little girl ghost in my house, (I have no idea why) we have captured (I and other investigators) her voice numerous times, speak out again. This time when I heard her voice, both cats who were sitting on my desk in the office with me, heard it also and sat up looking into the hallway of my kitchen and foyer. So if they heard it, I heard it, well you can figure that one out. No more then a minute later you hear a loud thump upstairs (No one is in my home except me and two fuzzy critters sitting next to me- blood pumping yet?) and then we hear what sounds like a dragging sound and it stops, then a dragging sound again and it stops. Now if I was in a horror movie I would begin to think that a body was just thrown on the floor and dragged across the carpet and then dragged again, that or some large male spirit has huge feet and a horrible dragging problem. Did it freak me out you ask? No, not really. I hear and see things all the time in my life, having them in my house is no different then staying at a haunted location or haunted hotel. I pretty much am familiar with the ghosts in the house. Two males, one female and one little girl.
What the hell they do sometimes and why they yell out in my house and for what reason, I don’t know but as I have written about in the past, the doorbell thing happened again today as well. After the Male voice. At 8:45am I heard a doorbell sound, similar to the house I grew up in, and this time I responded with “Okay I got the point” I got out of bed went downstairs and placed all the boxes from ghost outlet that were shipping that day out on the porch. It seems they were telling me, “Get up and start your day, post man is coming and you need to get those boxes out there you lazy bum”. He sometimes comes between 9-9:30am. You see if I dont make it to the door in time, he races off and jumps in his truck and drives off. They were just trying to save me the frustration of missing pick up and then having me have to go directly to the post office, therefore putting my entire schedule off kilter.
Working and staying up til 3-4 am is not fun, and the reason for sleeping in trying to get the 7-8 hours necessary for a healthy lifestyle is. I have to wonder who runs the house the ghosts or I?
It’s nice to know that the ghosts can speak, even though what they say can’t in most cases be understood. To some it may be a nuisance but to me, well you might say it is beginning to feel like home.
I am keeping the Handheld vac handy incase the black mass shows up again. It is time to clean house.
