Real Psychic Experiences

Spinning Cherub


A few nights ago I was awakened by a rattling noise which I thought to be coming from the dressing table. When I opened my eyes there was nothing there. When I closed my eyes I could clearly see through my eyelids a glowing orb in the corner of the room containing a spinning cherub-like figure. The light was very bright and lit up the corner of the bedroom and the dressing table, although my eyes were still closed. I opened my eyes again and saw nothing unusual. Again I closed my eyes and saw the glowing ball and the spinning figure within. I opened my eyes again to see nothing and looked at the clock it was 3.25am. On closing my eyes the same happened and I started to feel unsettled. I opened my eyes for the third time but couldn't see anything unusual. Feeling scared I left the room, but when I returned a few minutes later my eyes started to fill with tears for no reason.

Can anyone help me to understand what has happened here? I know this was not a dream as I was wide awake and can recall every detail. That night I had lit a scented candle in the bedroom and I wondered if it had opened a doorway of some kind. I have occasionally felt a pat on the head or a cool touch to the back of the neck in this house prior to this event we also have the feeling of being watched although don't feel uncomfortable here.

coolbreeze - No thanks necessary, happy to try and help; really.

As far as the signals in your house and the problem with the alarm system, there are rational explanations for those things.
Please believe me when I say I'm not trying to dismiss what your saying, but try to remember your having experiences in this house now that are automatically heightening your awareness to everything around you.

Since you talked about those other people living in the house, things seem to be coming together a little better now.

Let me try to put something out here for you too see what you think. Your description and reaction to the vision was obviously very strong for you; and as you said, it happened during a low point in your life. Could it have been the clergyman coming in too comfort? Could have been the woman music teacher? Also, think about the way you felt through the whole experience, not just when it was over. I feel it is important because these events are largely about what you feel as well as what you can explain.

Of course, I'm just speculating and could be very off here.

Oh, I did forget to mention the incident with your daughter. That is a tough one to call. If it only happened one time, I'ts possible that she may have over heard you talking about these things and woke up from a dream thinking she saw something. Then again with different things going on in the house, like the puff of smoke, the sense of watching, touching, and now the vision, it's possible that she saw something genuine. I't seems unlikely to me though, because all these things seem to be centered around you.

Hope to hear from you again and have a good day. Take care.

Day2Day thanks for your interest in my story. The points that you made were very much along the lines of what I thought. Three generations of the same family had lived in this house. The lady who we bought the house from was aged 90 when she sold the house to move in with her daughter. She used to be a music teacher at the Infant school I attended. What I forgot to mention in my previous comment was that the family let the house out to a clergyman for a period of 10 years. I also remembered that we have strange problems with reception of signals in the house such as tv and radio wave signals. We once installed a wireless burglar alarm in the bedroom where the vision occured which would not work although worked in every other upstairs room. The tv ariel sited in the loft space above the bedroom will not give a signal but gives a perfect one when moved above the adjacent room. Sorry just thought about these things afterwards. Thanks for helping me to understand these strange events.

coolbreeze - Glad you came back with some details. It did provide a better picture of things. Let me first say I definitely understand trying to rationlize these events. I have been dealing with this sort of thing for thirty five years now and I still go through all logical explanations before deciding something is genuine.

Sorry if this reply is a little long, I just wanted to cover all the bases as best as I could for you.

When I read your story and reply, I gave everything a lot of thought. There are some loose ends, but I did come up with some possibilities for answers; some from experience and some from other sources like reading other stories that I thought were credible, etc...

The house could be the source of these events because you said you knew the owners, they built the house, and they were the only occupants until you bought the place. The only loose end there is the previous owners. I don't want to be rude or anything, but I assumed that one or both might have passed because you said they were in the house since 1929.
Also, there could have been someone spending a lot of time in that home and maybe even lived there for a while a long time ago that you might not know about or remember.

There are many accounts out there that souls of people will seek to return and stay in a place they loved and are familiar with. When people move into what they still consider "their home", they will keep trying to make themselves known for different reasons. These souls will even try to attach themselves to certain people they are drawn too. In those cases it would always seem to be people more open and sensitive to their surroundings. Some people felt they were being watched over and cared for, others felt uncomfortable and decided not to stay in the house. Your story was similar too this.

There are many stories out there where people talk about seeing a vision of their guardian angels. They felt safe, protected, watched over, and said they didn't feel afraid when certain situations came up in their life; like a crisis, accident, illness etc. Again your story kind of fits into this, but not eexactly the same.

Lastly, there is another avenue out there more spiritual in nature where people have encountered what they call a twin flame or a soulmate. Some said at low points in their life they felt and sensed something coming in too comfort them and experienced emotions on a level they have never felt before. When those emotions lift they feel a sense of loss and very sad for a while. Some people experenced this through dreams and others said they were awake when it happened. Some aspects of this are in your story because you said you welled up with tears after the vision was over.

As far as the candle goes, maybe there is something to that recount you read. I just never heard that before.

Your story was very unique. I never came across someone that had an experience with different aspects falling into multiple explanations before. I hope you reply again with some feedback. I would really like to know your thoughts about the response and if it helped in anyway. Best to you.

Day2Day thanks for reading and commenting on my experience. The feelings I have had before, such as being watched and touches to head and neck, I have always tried to put down to rational events but I have felt them on more than one occasion. My daughter who was about 12 at the time, said she once woke up to see a figure in her bedroom doorway of about a child's height and thought it to be her brother but on further investigation found him to be sound asleep. I, however can't be sure that she wasn't dreaming (as you can see I am always trying to find a rational explanation). Once while watching tv in the living room I saw a puff of white smoke rising from the arm of the chair but when I reached out to touch it it vanished (no one in the house smokes). I know the family who owned the house before us, which they had built in 1929. The house remained in their ownership until we bought it 15 years ago. Thats a little bit about the house. The experience with the bright orb was very unexpected, nothing unusual lead up to this event. I didn't intentionally light the candle in the bedroom to invite spirits in but after experiencing such a strange vision I tried to investigate what could be the meaning of what I had witnessed via the internet. I read one persons recount in which they said that lighting a candle had had the effect of opening a doorway to spirits. I don't know, I'm just looking for answers. I did wonder if it was a guardian angel of somekind as I was experiencing a stressful period in my life. We haven't as a family suffered any recent bereavements. Hope this background information helps.

I came across your story and found it very interesting.

You said that you first felt you were being watched, then the sensation of touch a few times and now experienced what seems to be a vision because you were awake. You also said that you were unsettled, but not afraid. When you look at the sequence of events, things appear to be getting stronger.

I don't think a lit candle alone could open a doorway. I know it's hard to talk about these things and I don't want to pry too much here, but did the experiences you had with being watched and touched prompt further curiosity; or did you have an idea of what these things meant and wanted to look into it further? Have you had other experiences in the past, feeling different than this one?

Like I said, I don't want to pry or make anyone feel uncomfortable about an experience, I brought those questions up because it's hard to form a good opinion when there are other variables maybe coming into play with relation to your story. If at all possible, and your ok with it, giving some more details would really be helpful.

Let me just say that I am not an expert, but I have had different experiences myself in the past.

I think you made some sort of a connection here, but which kind is really the question. A guardian? A loved one that passed on? A message maybe? Or something else?

If giving more details is not an option, I understand. Just be careful before opening up to something your not sure about or don't really understand yet. Best to you.

At exactly the same time last night I heard a conversation almost in my head but I couldn't understand what they were saying and then awhile later I heard a scream?

Wow! What a totally unique and different psychic experience! Isn't it wonderful how we can experience new growth? You were definitely having a psychic moment! It sounds like it wasn't evil at all. Just a glowing orb with a something inside. 'It' knows you can see it, so maybe that's why it's hanging around. Just be watchful and careful. Not saying it's evil, but it could be a wonderful and beautiful experience, but be careful.
