Ghostly Encounter

Dear Brother Ron

Lately I have been experiencing what I think is a ghostly encounter. When I'm lying in bed I always feel fingers traveling up my back or someone cuddling me when there is no one else in the room. I sometimes hear a voice whisper in my ear: "Please forget about me...", which leads me to believe that it is the ghost of my deceased boyfriend who was shot dead about 2 years ago.

Why is this suddenly happening to me? Is there a way to make it stop?

Dear Chipanddale
 

If this is indeed a ghostly encounter (a judgment nobody but you is qualified to render), it would seem that your ex-boyfriend is telling you to get on with your life. You will probably never forget him but remember that people are pronounced man and wife "till death do you part". Death has parted you.

I realize this is easier for me to say than it is for you to do but it is a sad fact that life does go on, even if we do not. Your boyfriend does not want you to spend the rest of your life in mourning. He has moved on. So should you. I grieve for your loss but you should not spend the rest of your life doing the same. I'm pretty sure that once you move on, the spirit will too.

 

You might also consider that our Father may have another job waiting for your boyfriend. But he can not get on with our Father's work until he knows you are OK. So for your own sake and the benefit of your boyfriend and our Father, grieve as you must but realize that eventually both your life and our Father's plan must be fulfilled.

Best always
Brother Ron
