anonymous Can spirits actually touch you? April 16, 2008 11:42 PM

my dads spirit touching my shoulder 11:40 PM

hello, this is my first post on this website. 

My father only passed away last week from cancer. Yesterday was his funeral and after the wake, I went back to his house to stay the night with my mother. I went to bed and started crying.  After about 10 minutes, I felt this rubbing on my left shoulder, almost like someone was consoling me and rubbing my shoulder to say its ok or don't cry, I'm ok...  As I was lying on my right side, I just stayed in this position as I thought if I moved, it would stop.   My husband had drunk a lot of beer and was passed out beside me, so I knew it wasn't him.  Could this have been my dad rubbing my shoulder?  Can spirits actually touch you?

Yes spirits can, and do, touch you all the time… you simply, and generally, filter it out. In this case, however, as this was your confirmation from your recently enlivened father (my condolences by the way), you were open to and seeking the sensations and noticed it when it happened.

It is important for you to realize that you know who was rubbing your left shoulder and what message your father was trying to say; unfortunately, it is due to your cultural and/or religious conditioning that you are questioning this gift. Let go of such nonsense and know that your father will be with you albeit in a different form. This does not mean your father is different then before, it simply means your communication style will be different and he is free of pain and enjoying life to its fullest!

To alleviate any remaining traces of doubt, I will share my experience with you. My mother died, literally, overnight when I was about 10. Shortly thereafter I not only felt my mother rubbing my back but I saw her body’s indentation on my bed and saw her fully although a lot happier and with radiant light. A similar occurrence happened when a favorite cat of mine died. The cat was notorious for jumping on my feet and biting my toes as I slept until I would push it off with my feet. Well shortly after the cat’s death, sure as anything I felt the cat jump on my bed (it felt like the exact same weight) and the damn thing once again bit my toes! I repeated my routine of pushing the cat off my bed (feeling as solid as it did while “alive” and only after I heard the "thump" did it occur to me that the cat was dead! Yes the cat felt as solid and real as it did while in its body and no, there were no other pets in the house… the cat simply wanted to say goodbye and know it was loved… as did my mother… as does your father.

Be well and my best to you and yours.

I have felt it a few times May 11, 2008 4:00 AM

I feel pets that have crossed over.(I can distinguish between a cat and a dog now.) I also had a talk with my spirit guide abotu her name and I asked her if I got it right and to give me a sign. A few minutes later I felt her push on my lower back while I was in the kitchen.Felt like a definite 'human' push.

Thank you for sharing your stories, Karen and Charles. Hello Wolfgram!

I also have felt "the touch" various times, but it used to be a frightening experience, mostly because at the time I hadn't heard of others talking about similar experiences, and also because it was so unexpected.

The man that was the love of my life passed away 17 years ago. I wonder if it's him that I've felt several times. While sleeping on my side I feel "someone" press their body lightly against the back of mine, as though we were spooning. I sleep alone, so although I feel frightened waking up to that at the time, I know now that I'm safe from harm.

Thanks for the topic Karen and sorry about your recent loss. Thanks everyone else to posting.  I do believe spirits can touch us. I often feel like a caressing of my skin like on my forehead and I have felt a tug on my shirt when no one was around. I just wish I knew who they were.

touch of a spirit September 28, 2008 1:04 AM

Yes,  those who have passed on ahead of us can touch us and in many ways.

My brother died suddenly at the age of 32.  After the viewing I laid on my bed crying and not only did I feel his touch but also heard him tell me not to cry.  Later I would have a dream about him outlying next few years of my life.  It all came true.

Many years before my husband died we made a pact that whoever passed on first would contact the other if there was life after death.  We had his Wake at our house and where he died under a picture my deceased mother had painted.  This was a painting of the setting sun above a cabin.  At the Wake it was my sister-in-law who first saw the angel in the picture.  If you look close enough you can see my husbands facial features.  The angel remains in the picture today only now it has a smaller angel under it's wing which I believe represents my now deceased father. 

Both my father and my husband have touched me physically and I have felt my husbands presence in my car as I drive down the road.  Sometimes I can feel my husband wrap his arm around me now 12 years later.
