The Visitor

When I was a young boy I experienced horrible night terrors. I would lie awake in my bed all night every night. As soon as I would close my eyes to try to sleep things would get worse! Every night I would hear foot steps and watch people walk past my bedroom door. I was terrified! So terrified that I had to go toilet in my room! I never told my parents what was going on because I knew they wouldn’t believe me.

After a few years we moved out of that house and the night terrors stopped. I didn’t know what to make of them. Anyways, after a few years my best friend passed away. During the build up to his funeral his Aunty told me “It’s OK Ben. You will see him again. For you have a gift.”

She then grabbed my hand and showed me a mark on it that I had never taken any notice of. It was a cross (or as she called it “a psychic cross”) I was very sceptical when she first told me this and to be honest… I thought she was nuts!

But then it happened…

A couple of days later I became bored. I was sick of all the sadness so I decided to watch a movie. It was a movie that my friend had purchased just before he died but he never got a chance to watch. so I put the movie into the DVD player and started watching it. I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden I knew I wasn’t alone in the room.

I looked over and there he was. Vivid as anything. He stayed for the whole movie and then left. After this phenomenon I went and told his Aunty. She just smiled at me. She then explained to me about our spiritual guardians. She described mine as a tall man with long silver hair, a long black robe and a long golden blade hanging from his wrist. She said in his life he was a druid and his name was Uther. I took this comment a bit more seriously I mean, she was right last time. So I stayed weary.

Anyway, a couple of months after the funeral I was having a shower. Same routine as always with nothing out of the ordinary. And then I blinked. There he was. Uther (perfect description of what Gaye said except he was wearing a hat). Standing right in front of me! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! Then I blinked again and as quickly as he appeared, he vanished. I haven’t experienced anything like it since but it has made me believe in the afterlife. Hopefully my story will help others believe too.
