I got the comment below to the most recent post, Puzzle Pieces. I decided to respond with a blog entry since it was going to be an answer longer than just a few sentences.
"That is crazy! Have you ever been paralyzed by fear? You can't move, talk or anything! When my aunt was dying of cancer in 1978, I was the only person she would let get her up to go to the bathroom or whatever she needed. I lived in the country ( that house I told you about earlier). My son was 4 at the time, and he was the only child she would let on the bed with her, she wouldn't even let her own grandkids on the bed. After a few months, we list my aunt to the cancer. My aunt was old school, always wearing dresses with the full apron that you had to put over your head to get on. Shortly after her funeral, I awoke at about 3am for no reason. When I opened my eyes, my aunt was standing in my bedroom doorway! I know this might sound crazy, but she had a white aura all around her body!! As I said, I was paralyzed with fear knowing that she had passed away, yet there she was in my bedroom doorway!!! I don't know if she had a message for me, or came to me to let me know she was now at peace. I am thinking she sensed my fear, and the next thing I knew, she was gone. I wish I hadn't been so fearful, because now I will never know why she came to me. My husband thinks to this day I am crazy and was dreaming. What, if anything do you think? I would really like your opinion if you have one."
I always feel I should add the disclaimer that I am not a paranormal expert. My opinion is based solely on my experiences and what I have learned over the years.
First off, I don't think you're crazy at all. There are things that we just don't understand how or why they happen. I believe that there's a world out there beyond ours and even though we know exists, we have yet to discover it. For us as human beings, living souls, to think there is nothing beyond what we see in front of us is nonsensical. So, crazy? No. Sensitive? Yes
I have been frozen in fear many times over the years. It was paralyzing. I couldn't move, speak, or even react to what was happening. My whole body would become numb and my brain would shut down. It was like hitting the pause button.
Now that I understand and accept who I am, I don't find myself experiencing fear paralysis as much when things happen around me. I touched on this somewhat in "Continuous Adventures Journey". It's all about understanding you can still control your surrounding environment despite what happens. It comes down to three things.
I may touch on these more in a future blog post but for now, back to this entry.
Over the course of our lifetime we develop strong relationships with others. Those relationships center around love, hope, happiness, caring, and tragedy. Sharing these events and emotions with others builds very strong emotional ties. These don't go away when someone passes, they remain. Some people continue to feel the person with them but some feel nothing at all.
In your case, you had a bond with your aunt that transcends dimensions. It's was, and still is, a extremely strong and emotional connection. Her visiting you was her way of continuing that relationship; strengthening it. Maybe now it's her turn to take care of you.
You mentioned you saw a white aura around her. To me, white is angelic, it symbolizes purity and peace. So when you thought her message was that she was at peace, that could have very well been the case.
As I mentioned, your bond with aunt is strong. She's probably still looks in on you from time to time. Open yourself up and you may see her again.
