My Experiences With My Moms Ghost Or Spirit

First of all I should tell you that my mom passed away on January 6th 2010. She died according to her doctors of congestive heart failure. On Saturday after my mom passed away on Wednesday I did her funeral service. She had requested this of me a couple years before.

Me and my mom had always promised each other that if either of us died before the other that we would try to let the other one know that we were still around and okay. After I came home that Saturday afternoon I was standing in my living room looking at photos of my mom and her father my grandfather up on the wall in the corner of my living room.

Over on the other side of the room was a horse for small kids to ride on a stand so the horse would rock up and down when the child rode it. Also when a child would ride it and start the horse to rocking there was a device inside the horse that would make horse sounds and the sound of a six shooter and a cowboys voice.

As I stood at least 16 feet from the horse I heard the sound start up and the horse was rocking up and down and back and forth almost violently. To say the least I was amazed beyond belief. There was no one near the horse and it had started up and rocked on its own when this just wasn't possible. I remember asking out loud is that you mom. If so make it do it again. Twice more when I asked the horse rocked and made its horse and cowboy sounds. By that time a friend of mine named Chuck had walked to the door of the living room and stood there amazed his self at what was going on.

I Felt Like I Had A Conversation With The Ghost Or Spirit Of My Mother

It was truly one of the strongest and strangest paranormal experiences that I had ever had. While I had over the years witnessed many paranormal events this was the first time that I felt like I had ever carried on a conversation with a spirit or ghost. I truly believe that it was my Mom and she was letting me know that she was there and that she was okay. I remembered our conversation from a couple of years before that which ever one of us passed away first that we would let the other know that we were okay.

After that evening I truly believed that my mom had come to me in that living room while I was looking at photos of her and my grandfather and I believe that she made the horse rock and make its horse and cowboy sounds. And I'll never believe that it was anything else but the spirit or ghost of my mother.

A Phone Call From The Beyond

About three weeks later on a Sunday afternoon my phone rang and I had the service from Time Warner that displayed the phone number calling your TV screen. It was my moms phone number calling me and it sent chills down my spine as I answered the phone. When I picked it up I heard what I thought was my moms voice say something but I didn't quite catch it. I asked what did you say but the phone went dead.

Now what was so strange about this was that about a week after my moms death we had her phone service disconnected and when the phone was calling me it did not work. I called the number back and it was not a working number. Over the next few days it would repeat on my phone and also on my friends phone and it was really spooking both of us. AT&T verified that my moms phone had been turned off and they said there was no way it could be calling anyone but it was.

My Mom Left A Message On My Answering Machine

Then one night it happened while I was gone and when I came home the message light on my answering machine was blinking letting me know I had a message. I played the message and it was my moms voice saying to pick up the phone as she often had done when she was alive. Everyone who listened to it said it was my moms voice. She called both mine and my friends phone several more times and to say the least it was spooky.Then the calls just quit.

Now She Haunts My Friends Van

Carolyn was a friend of me and my mom and she is still my friend today. A couple of weeks after my moms death we were out in my friends new van and the back door just opened on it's own and no one was anywhere near that door. It can open when you push a button but no one was pushing a button. Then it got to the point when we would be out of the van and start walking towards the van the door would open on the passenger side as we were approaching the van.

All the lights inside and outside the van would also rapidly turn off and on and we had the van checked out for a shortage but there was no shortage. Several other people who rode in the van during this time were really spooked by the door opening on its own and the lights going off and on. Several people were seriously frightened by what was going on in the van.

And while the activity in the van has slowed down it still happens from time to time and it's still spooky at times when it's going on.

Strange Paranormal Things Going On Where I Now Live

I moved where I live now a few weeks ago and almost at once strange things started going on. Things like my keys will be moved from one room to another or things in rooms will be moved. All the chairs on my table were one time all neatly stacked against the wall. And no one was doing these things. The doors are locked when were gone and no one else has a key.

My Mom And QVC

Then a few weeks ago it really got strange. I never watch the cable station QVC which is a shopping channel but my mom did all the time. I have a TV in my bedroom which is a 31 inch TV and I have a 56 inch TV in my living room. With in a few days of each other both TV's at different times would just change to QVC with no one near the TV or the remote. Something strange indeed was now going on. And it continues to happen as recently as last night.

I Really Think It Is My Mom

Several times when it has happened I've asked is that you mom and I've asked her to turn the TV if it's her. Several times she has turned the TV when I've asked her to. So I know it's her. With out a shadow of a doubt I know it's my Mom letting me know that she's around. I don't think it is anything but the ghost or spirit of my mother and I really believe she's doing it to let me know she's still around. Exactly why I don't know but I know she's still here.

She Also Does Things At My Friends House

She lets my friend Carolyn know she is still around also. She has appeared beside her bed and even got into bed with her. She also recently told my friends nephew to move over while he was sleeping in a guest room. He was both scared and amazed because he knew what he heard. She touches people in my friends house and I've been setting there looking out the front door several times and watched my moms ghost or spirit walk across the front yard.

My friend Carolyn has seen her floating in the air up above her bed and she does all kinds of things to let Carolyn know that she is around. It scares some people in Carolyn's house but they know my mom is there. She seems to be doing everything she can to let people know that she is around. Sometimes she will mess with the lights in my friends house and again I'm 100 percent certain that it is not an electrical shortage. I think it is the spirit or ghost of my mom letting people know that she is still with us.

Why she does what she does or why its so important for her to let us know she is still around I don't know. But I do know she is still around and she does all she can to let us know she's still here. I don't know exactly why but I do know she's here.

I couldn't help but think about MY mom while reading this...there were similatities that gave me chills. I know my mom is still around as I see her...mostly in cars while Im driving, a couple times driving school busses that passed me. She did drive school bus, & loved driving. I have a message from her on an answering machine tape..but no longer have a machine to play it on , so it sits in my jewelry box. I still hear her say my name sometimes..mostly as Im falling asleep. She def lets me know shes around.

Anna Haven from Scotland on January 10, 2015:

I am sorry to hear about your loss.

I think it is comforting for those of us that know that those we love the most are still around us and it sounds like your strong, beloved mum is definitely watching over you.

Suzie from Carson City on May 23, 2014:

Thomas.....I am sorry you lost your sister and your Mom.....That very thing happened to me as well......My only sister died in Aug. (cancer) and 3 months later to the day, my mother died of congestive heart failure, which I considered a "broken heart," due to losing her daughter.

I would like nothing more than to believe I am being visited by someone who has of my precious loved ones.....but I haven't been.

It's really too bad you did not video tape these unusual events.....for absolute proof. I'm sure most people simply do not believe these things. There's always an explanation and/or a reason for what appears to be paranormal experiences.......UP+++

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on March 29, 2014:

Thanks very much Minnetonka Twin. Your comment is appreciated. My Mom was a strong woman who built a multi million dollar business after she was 50 and my Dad and her divorced. I miss her a lot.

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on March 28, 2014:

Wow, your mom is really making some visits to you. I guess you guys should of talked about how many times you'd visit each other. LOL She definitely wants you to know that she is still around you and your family. I am sharing this all over. Great hub-I too have had ghostly experiences and they've all been more healing than scary. Thanks for sharing.

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on September 09, 2013:

Thanks to both of you. It's a comfort to know she is still around. I appreciate the comments.

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on September 09, 2013:

Thanks Shyron. She is still at it today also.

Jo_Goldsmith11 on September 09, 2013:


wow, this was worth reading the first 30 minutes this morning. I am sorry you lost your mom. I am an oprhan too,

I lost a sister first then my mom passed. I think it was too much for her. I heard an old song on the radio the other day.

I had to go on errands and the car radio landed on an old song by Bobby Vinton "To know you, is to love you, " This was one

of my mom's favorite songs. Bobby Vinton was her secret husband, she use to say. (haha)

I would say you definitely had some kind of contact with your mom. I didn't watch the video, I am chicken.

I did vote this up + interesting and shared. take care

KenWu from Malaysia on September 08, 2013:

You mom still loves you as she always did. But those things you mentioned there really gives me a chill. Hope that she will find her way.

God bless,

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on September 08, 2013:

Hi Tom, I came back to re-read about your mom.

Voted up and interesting

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on September 02, 2013:

It is hard I know. But I'm sure she is there with you. I hope you find peace.

Robin on September 02, 2013:

My Mom died unexpectedly on May 18, 2012 of a heart attack. None of us (her five children) were with her when it happened. I strongly believe my Mom, too, comes around. None of us have seen her, but she visits us often in our dreams. I can smell her, too.

I recently told her it was okay - meaning she shouldn't be upset that she died. She was so young (53 years old). I can almost feel her despair.

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on August 13, 2013:

John the stuff I'm talking about is not on other sites but something like it is. You know what I mean. I can't see why a piece on the Last Game At Yankee Stadium would get 25,000 views over on that other site and 1500 views here. Really doesn't make a lot of sense. But I'm not giving up on Hub Pages yet. I still think the numbers may go up eventually.

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on August 13, 2013:

Unfortuntly John they kept unfeaturing the Yankee Stadium Hub so its one of those I deleted from the site and saved to put up somewhere else. I keep fighting them but they keep unfeaturing stuff that has thousands of views on other sites. Sometimes I wonder John. I really do. But I keep trying here. Thanks for the kind words of you and your young neice. They are appreciated.

JohnM from Miami Florida on August 13, 2013:

See CHG I told you that you should make this story into a book. My young neice is right. I have loved this story from the first time I read it. CHG where is your Hub Page on the last game played at Yankee Stadium I can't find it. Hell it made me want to be a Yankee Fan. Like that's going to happen. LOL. But send me the link I would like to read it again. It was one of the best , well written pieces on this site. Hope to get to go to New York with you this winter.

Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on August 13, 2013:

Haven't written a book in a while. I have notes for several on the back burner I'm going to have to get back to. I appreciate you my young friend. Glad you found me on Hub Pages. I think I last saw you, your aunt and your brother was at the last game played at the old Yankee Stadium. Where has the time gone. I hope to get back to New York this coming winter. I could really use a couple of weeks in winter around Central Park. Maybe I do need to return to my roots. Thanks.

Taylor1984 on August 13, 2013:

Again you do really great work. I wish I could tell stories like you do. I see you used to write for the New York voice. Your one of my fav authors. I hope you write another vampire book soon.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on January 11, 2013:

This really gives me chills. Great hub.

Silva Hayes from Spicewood, Texas on January 11, 2013:

My mother-in-law died in Missouri and we drove from our home in Texas to attend her funeral and then drove back. The next day I was standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes when her spirit floated past the window and she clearly said "Bye," and floated away.

Let me set the scene ... it was a beautiful Spring day. Our back yard extended a long way back and connected to someone else's back yard. That neighbor grew hundreds of Flander's poppies and they were in full and glorious bloom. My mother-in-law was young again, like a girl in her late teens, and she was floating along in a horizontal position, like a bird flying. The tone of her voice was high and lilting, making the one word Bye into two syllables. Away she floated, never to be seen or heard from again.

dmop from Cambridge City, IN on May 30, 2012:

Such a great story, I believe there are ghosts and they do have the ability to let us know they are there. My girlfriends husband and aunt died in our house and we have had quite a few odd things happen here that can't be explained by anything other than a spirit. The radio in her oldest daughters room turns on randomly and is always on the oldies station even though she never leaves it on that station. One day I was doing dishes while home alone and suddenly her bedroom door flew open and slammed against the wall. It couldn't have been the wind because the house is very old and the door is very hard to open and close. I voted this up, interesting, and awesome.

Expertwriter48 from Key West Florida on May 27, 2012:

I too believe in ghosts and this has to be one of the best paranormal stories I've seen on here. Great work.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on May 25, 2012:

I have two experiences with the paranormal, one similar to your, and one totally different. I will write hubs on both.

shamani67 on May 25, 2012:

Brilliant. I had an experience similar when my grandmother died. I asked that when she passed over could she let me know that she was still around. She did this in ways only she could do. It is too much to tell here, so maybe that is an idea for a hub. Great writing.

Helen Murphy Howell from Fife, Scotland on May 25, 2012:

This is a fascinating hub and It's definitely your Mum! She's making sure that there is no doubt at all that she has kept her word! I think the telephone calls from her number and the answering machine are awesome and gives some of the best evidence from her - what a remarkable lady your Mum is!!

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on May 25, 2012:

Pretty awesome material. Thanks for sharing.

stessily on May 25, 2012:

crazyhorsesghost, As Hamlet observed, there are more things in heaven and earth than any of us can dream. I've thought of that wise observation so many times throughout my life as I encounter the mysterious, the inexplicable, and the unusual.

It must bespeak your mother's deep, eternal concern for you that she continues to let you know that she is nearby.

My special thanks to Amethystraven for sharing this interesting piece and thereby bringing it to my attention.

Kind regards, Stessily

She was a very strong woman. She built a huge business taking care of mentally challenged persons after she was fifty and was one of the most successful business women in NC for a number of years.

Anne from United Kingdom on May 25, 2012:

WOW CHG. Your Mom is certainly living up to the promise she made. The incidents sound quite scary, but she obviously knows they wont frighten you and is doing all she can to let you know she´s still there in spirit.She must have been a strong woman in life, to come through so clearly.
