He Came Back and Tweaked my Toes

Posted on December 8, 2009

You know what they say hey? When you lose a loved one they always come back to see you. Well, my brother, Shaun, passed away on the 24 August 2007, not too long ago. Anyways, apart from feeling as though I had lost my left leg all I wanted more then anything in the whole world was to know that somehow, some way he would come back and see me.

Before I carry on though, I want to let you in on a little joke shared between Shaun and myself, he used to tease me about my second two, he said that it was so long that it had its own brain and central nervous system (never mind the fact that we had exactly the same feet).

Well, one night while sound asleep I felt my second toe on my right foot being tugged. I woke up to the strange sensation and while putting it down to nerve twitching went back to sleep. I do not know how long time passed but I woke up to a even harder tug on my left foot! I just knew that at that very moment Shaun had come to visit me to let me know that all is well.

I also sat bolt up in my bed and said “tell daddy I love him and I miss him just as much as I miss you Shaun!” (My father passed away about three weeks after Shaun on the 12 September 2007) I also asked Shaun if he had been there when my father had taken his last breath and did he see me sitting on the bed waiting for the funeral parlour to come and fetch him? I did not get any answers that night so I decided to wait a couple months and I went to see a medium.

While at the medium she told me that Shaun is such a jolly soul and that he is always smiling. She said to me that he is laughing and she communicated with him and asked him what the laughter was about and she looked at me and said that Shaun was saying that he did it, he tugged my toes!

Well as tears streamed down my face I thanked the lady and she said to hold on, he is looking a lot more serious and she said that Daddy said he loves his little girl so much and if he could of taken the pain away on that day while I sat with him he would of but yes, he saw me and was very proud of everything that I was doing to comfort my mother. He also said that Shaun had been there when he passed on and they walk together now.

So yes, there are a lot of sides to the spirit world but I just wait patiently for the next time I get visited by my passed on family.

    To Kari Lee, I thought your story was interesting and sad, sorry for your loss. But what I wanted to tell you is that my brother’s name was Sean and he was born on August 24 similar to the day your brother died. I thought it was similar. My brother died when he was 17. he was born in 1966 but he died in 1984. but I have a story on Trueghosttales.com

    Hi Kerry-Lee,
    Thanks for your interesting story.I am so sorry for your losing your brother & your dad through a short time, I think that it was a very difficult times to you, I wish you are O.K now.
    I would like to ask you, when you told the medium about your brother , did you tell here about your questions to him when he visited you, or she told you his answers by her own? I mean , you may be helped the medium through your discussion to deduce the answers. with my best wishes.

    What a heart-wrenching, yet heart-warming story! You brought tears to my eyes. I am so glad your brother could let you know that he is with you.

    I just read your story…and enjoyed it very much..thanks for sharing it on here.It was really cool that your brother contacted you in a way that you knew it was him..when he pulled on your second toe! I want to encourage you to look for other times and ways that your brother and Dad will let you know that they come to ‘visit’ you and also your Mother..did you know that our loved ones and close friends also can visit us in our dreams…it is a gentle way to visit us without freaking us out…it is my ‘opinion’ that we all have psyic gifts…and we can delvelop it if we choose to…just something to think about.But I believe that we can experince more of the spiritual realm when we are open minded to it..and once you have been contacted by a loved one it helps you to open up and become more sentive.Good Luck…and Blessed Be!!!
