I had an experience a few days ago which was quite unsettling, in fact it’s something which I still can’t understand.
The day was like any other. It was early afternoon and I was sitting in the lounge reading in a chair opposite my front window which looks down my drive..
I think I must have been about to fall asleep as I had one of those unpleasant jolts which suddenly brought me back into focus.
As I was about to continue reading I glanced out through my window and saw my Dad come through my double gates and walk up the drive and carry on alongside one of my side windows. To be honest my immediate thought was to wonder why Dad was calling on me at this particular time. ...I started to rise from my chair to go and greet him and then quickly sat down again…..My Dad died twelve years ago!!
I was shaking and rushed outside to see who was out there, but there wasn’t anyone.
This was no fleeting apparition or shadow which I’d seen, and my dad had not been in my thoughts previously during the day where I could have perhaps projected thought into vision.. He was as solid and real as ever he’d been, and was in my sight for at least eight seconds as I watched him dressed in a burgundy pullover I'd knitted for him, walk up my drive and passed the side window
I’m definitely not a fanciful person and am a complete sceptic about unexplained things, but to say this unsettled me is an understatement.
I no have explanation for what happened and nothing like this has ever happened to me before.
I would appreciate any feedback.
