Gaby, Please don't fear it. I feel it is someone you love trying to say hi. I know this sounds very crazy but it is a gentle soul someone you know someone who loves you deeply. They are just teasing you, like they would have in life. Say hello back and tell them to stop teasing, tell them they are scaring you and that you would like them to stop. Let this contact comfort you not scare you, they are here to watch over you. They have done stuff to get your attention before, either you didn't notice or you didn't understand it. Think of it as a kiss on your cheek to say hi. Who ever it is they are good, they are gentle but i feel cold around them and a hurt in the head, I feel a swell in my chest like that of love for a child like pride. I think it is a blessing not something to fear embrace this moment of contact with this soul it is of love not. They want to stroke your hair like a mother soothing a child. I am sorry to ramble it happens when I am feeling not thinking. Do not be afraid, love and peace when you go to bed tonight give love and peace to God and sleep well knowing that your loved ones are with you in physical form and in thought and sleep in love and peace. Also know that Gissi will watch over you in your sleep.

Reiteration of what I've been telling you, Gabs? Thank you Addysmum, you've just confirmed something I spoke with Gabs about after visiting her place twice. There is a spirit, or spirits, (my feeling is there are two), in her kitchen area, but they are friendly. They're watching over her, and will never harm her. I feel these things often, and I'm glad you recognise my feelings as real. You see, Gabs, people know when you're being watched over. I'm not the only person who has told you that. They didn't even want to harm me, but they wanted me to know they were there, caring for you. Take heed of what Addysmum is telling you, for I'm sure she's right. Relax now... have a cup of coffee, and take pleasure in their company. xxxxx

Oh, my goodness. I've been at your place Gabs, and didn't I tell you there was a mist and a cold feeling? Wow, Addysmum is unbelievable... she can see at a distance what I saw and felt close up. Amazing!

Well I just typed a whole story back to you and it disappeared. So I will shorten it this time. lol When that happens to me I know for a fact it is family from the great beyond coming to visit me. lol I am a true believer in Ghosts. My brother always said that he will come back and flick on and off a certain lamp. And it has happened more than I can count. So maybe you have some ghosts visiting you or a short. lol But I like the ghosts better. Have a great day. LilacMoon54

I have had strange things like that happen also. I figure it is just past family passing through for a visit. I am silly enough to talk to them and then they go away.

I know you posted this four weeks ago I hope my friend you are still not scarded. I think your light bulb is not going out. I know sometimes they flicker before they give up. I know Gissi will not let anyone get to you. When I get scared like that I pray for strenght and turn the music or TV up loud so I can block out outside noise. I hope it does not happen again.

It could be a spirit as they have been known to do that...but it could also be your electric. Not that your entire house had a power surge - because then your computer would have been affected - and not that your light bulb wasn't in right or going bad...but there could be a connection being lost where the electrical wires for the lights tie into the fixture to supply the electricity to the bulbs. If it happens again, I would suggest having someone look at that as it is a very simple fix but would continue to cause the problem you experienced. As time goes on - it will happen more and more often until the wires completely disconnect to where that light fixture will not work anymore.

Thank you Jenny it has not happened since I did get the Landlord to send someone round to check it and the light is fine so they do not know what caused it

Ok Angel I won't say anything scary or spooky but are you sure you aren't on Candid Camera or something? Don't be freaked unless it happens again! lol It does seem a bit strange but could be something to do with the wiring - our kitchen lights do that sometimes! Your lights are usually on a seperate fuse too so that could be something to do with it? Hugs xxx

Maybe something is just wrong with your lights. To avoid bad spirits in case put salt in a bowl and put it in a place where no one will use it or have contact with it. Then burn some incense at night. Unforeseen Ghost or spirits hate noise..Turn some music on or sing while you do chores around your house. It will help..try it.

OH twin that would scare me too, specially if I lived alone. I had something like that happening to me once in the kitchen as well, and it turned out to be something so simple I wouldn't have thought about it LOL I would turn on the light in the kitchen and it would be fine, and then I would walk inside and the lights would flicker, like they were turning on and off. If I stopped it would stop as well. When I was way past the door, it wouldn't happen anymore. What happened is that there waw a loose wire or something and the vibration of me walking was creating the problem because the wire would move as well, and the lights would turn on and off. I hope that what's happening to you is something as simple as that. Big hug

Ok, relax, my friend. I know what you're thinking, and I'm partly to blame for this. The fact that Gissi's acting strangely could mean that your worries are founded, but you don't need to be scared, as I've told you before. Nothing's going to hurt you. If it was, why would it take this long, and I'm convinced, there's nothing to fear. Gissi is going to act strangely every time something happens that is "different", like when he passes wind.. ha ha ha! It makes him jumpy because he's not used to it. Now, down to the reason... if I remember rightly, you have fluorescent lights, or at least one, in your kitchen. My feeling is that the starter has gone in the fluorescent light. I don't know how long it is since your starter was changed, but I would have a word with your main man, and ask him what he thinks. I'm sure it's no more than just that. I don't think it's the weather, or upstairs would have the same problem, as you are probably on the same circuit. So, check your fluorescent light(s). I think you're going to find that's all it is. Take care, and don't worry so... you'll make yourself bad, again with the breathing. Love you. xxxxx

Awww, my friend... I can understand why that would seem scary to you... Possibly it is a short in the electric lines or a power surge!! I am sure that you have been through the entire house by now and realize that you are safe... When I lost my Mom, our television did that a few times...nothing else was affected...as my husband spends alot of time in front of the television...I always thought that Mom was trying to tell him that she was well and not to worry about her... Huge hugs, Tina
