Five years ago, I was having lunch at my parents’ house in Italy. Their cat, Figaro, was not allowed inside their home. So, he peered through the French windows from the conservatory, that my parents used to store many things, including the bicycle that you can see behind the cat. Figaro looked so cute that I took several pictures of him (you can see him inside the yellow circle) with my mum’s iPad. In the picture, you can see also the reflection of the opposite wall of the room where we were lunching.
While we were looking through the pictures, which I had just taken, my sister-in-law screamed, “What’s that?”
In only one of the photos, Figaro seemed to be in the company of a woman, standing behind the bicycle.
Since then, I’ve been wondering whether what I caught on camera was a ghost. How could that be? The house was new when we bought it, nobody had lived there before us.
Yes, there was the occasional slamming of doors without any apparent reason. Also, when I was a teenager we had a séance in which a few spirits came through. Maybe one of them didn’t leave my parents’ place when invited to do so?
I know that there is life after death. Although I’m not a trained medium, some people who had left this plane of existence contacted me and asked me to deliver their messages to their loved ones, which I did. I was so nervous and embarrassed when approaching the people the messages were meant for. What if what I was going to say would be considered total rubbish? On the other hand, I couldn’t ignore what I had been asked to do. To my astonishment, the recipients of the messages confirmed to me that those messages made sense to them and thanked me.
Catching a ghost on camera was something completely different though.
Three years later, I had another supernatural experience, which I discussed in my blog post My Granny Angela Told Me… : my late maternal grandma came through a medium during a Psychic Night and helped me create my logo by sending me to Brighton for inspiration!
Why am I bring up this matter now? Because this week the famous psychic Craig Hamilton-Parker has given me his verdict, published in the magazine Fate & Fortune.
What’s your experience with the supernatural, dear Seeker?
