Message From The Other Side

Posted on August 12, 2008

I wouldn’t call this a scary story, but it still kind of gave me the chills, so here goes.

My mom unfortunately passed away this past January 2008 and all of these experiences started on the day she died. First, it was around 7 in the morning and I turned the TV on and sat down to watch cartoons with my little cousin. The show was about someone who had a pet fish that died and since my mom was in the hospital it got me thinking, but then I shook it off because I didn’t want to think of her dying, so I let it go.

Then as we were going to the hospital a song came out on the radio that Aaliyah sings and that got me thinking again, “Oh my God Aaliyah died a while back!” I didn’t tell my dad about it and I still haven’t told him yet.

Later that same night my mom passed away in the hospital. I guess someone or something was trying to tell me that my mom was going to die. That was the first one.

A couple of days after she died, I was in my room with my little brother, he was using the computer and I decided to get a piece of blank paper and write her name, her date of birth through the day she passed, R.I.P, and “We love you”. I wanted to save the paper so I thought that the safest place to save it was in her bible. So I opened it at a random page and I just happened to open it on Joshua and the title read “I’ll be with you”. When I read it, I got goosebumps all over my arms and the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Even though I’m catholic, I don’t open the bible for anything, I’m not really religious so I don’t really know how a bible works. If anyone wants to see it, it’s on page 273 paragraphs 5-7 that’s all I know.

The next one was when we were in my aunt’s house and she was telling me that if me and my brothers needed anything to let her know and she was telling us that she will always care for us and do anything for us, then all of a sudden the television turned on by itself. No one could’ve turned it on because the remote was on the other couch and no one was close to the TV. My aunt smiled and said, “I think your mom heard me and she’s saying thanks”. I wanted to cry, but I sucked it up.

So far those are all the things that happened to me and when that happened I didn’t get scared once ’cause I know that it’s my mom telling me that she’s ok and that she’ll always be around us, watching.

You can choose to believe me or not. I do believe it’s her and that loved ones that pass away are always around the people they love, protecting them.

    I’m sorry for your lost, you seem like a strong child, sorry don’t know your age. Yeah I believe you that’s what they say especially of the love one’s will alway’s be there.

    That’s a very touching story. My grandmother just passed away, at the ripe old age of 97, and I had already gone to the hospital and said my goodbyes, but for some reason I wanted to go back a couple of days later. It was a long drive (3 hours), and I felt like I had done what I needed to, but it was just nagging at me. I decided to sleep on the decision, and that night at 1:15 in the morning, all of the smoke detectors in my house went off. I jumped up and went to get my daughter and try to figure out what was going on, and they all suddenly stopped. We checked the house, and all was well. I decided I would go see her one more time.

    She died shortly after I arrived at her hospital room, and I was there, holding her hand. It was incredible, and I thank whoever or whatever “sounded the alarm” so to speak.

    Thanks for sharing your story. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

    I believe it was your mum too, too many coincidences if you ask me or anyone!!

    Sorry for your loss, but at least you have the comfort of knowing she is OK and still there watching over you.

    Hi Brissel. That is a very good story. First of all, I want to send you my condolences for you mother’s passing. I know that is very hard. My mother passed away in June of 2002, so I have been there. Second of all, I believe that everything you just said is indeed correct. For example, my mother loved bunny rabbits. She collected them in our house. Anyways, a lot of times, when I am upset and driving, I see a bunny on the side of the road or in my driveway. I believe that it is my mother telling me that she is there and protecting me. Also, her best friend, whom my mother worked with, was at work one day and the phone rang and it said my mother’s old extension. (This was about 6 months after my mother died.) When her friend answered, all she heard was “heavenly” music. Once again, we believe it was my mother saying that she is there and protecting us. I hope things get better for you and keep your head up.

  12. Andy says:

    Very sorry to hear of your loss. A death of a parent can be so painful. Both of my parents died within a year of eachother so I know the kind of pain you are going through. I do believe that you mother is there watching over you and your younger brother.


  13. vanessa says:

    the loss of any loved one can cause pain in the heart ond soul specially with it being the one that gave birth to you. i havent lost my mom or dad yet thankfully but i have lost my stepmom whom i loved as i do my own mom and my oldest nephew. he was my first experiance with babies and he also taught me at 14 i was no way ready to be a mom myself. he deid at the tender age of 18. my step mom and nephews deaths were so different. his death was subtle. he went to sleep on december 26th like he normally did but his brother couldnt wake him up on the 27th so he went to sleep and never woke up. my stepmom was 50 when she died and she suffered really badly she had advanced lung and throat cancer and on the 12th of dec(same year as my nephew and gramms) she went into coma breathing hard and shallow unless my dad was talking to her then her breathing was normal and unlabored. she finally stopped fighting death on dec 17 2005 at 3.20 in the afternoon. after all these years my dad finally told me that at 3.15 he told her to stop fighting and that he would see her in gods house. she died 5 mins later. so i can really feel that pain and i am so sorry. my step mom lets me know shes here when i am cooking because she loved cooking. my nephew was a strong minded young man so i feel his strength when i get upset about my health.

  14. chicken nugget says:

    i believe you im so sorry :( :( :( :(

  15. razika says:

    no this is not a scary story at all. u didn’t cry but i did. i believe u. ur mom will always be there for u in good times and in bad.

  16. Jenn says:

    Hey Brissel,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I think your story is very touching. I definitely believe that your mom still watches over you.
    When my father passed, he came and visited me and my step-mom. I dont usually talk about it, since it is very personal for me, but until then, I was a skeptic.
    I have to say, it is very comforting knowing that those you love never truly leave you.
    God bless…
