I had a moment....

I work nights in a residential home for people with learning disabilities, it is very small and unfortunately we have had a number of deaths recently.

Last night I was lone working, it was 4am and I must have closed my eyes and was dozing for a matter of seconds when there was a massive crash and 2 canvas pictures threw themselves across the room at me landing a good 2ft and at a diaganol to where they had been hung on a nail by stretched wire.

I sat there for 15 minutes mouth open trying to rationalise it but couldn't and still can't. The way they landed doesn't make sense, I feel like "something" did it but that really freaks me out as I am not a woo person at all and don't really believe in spiritual things.

Can anybody help me to rationalise it? I feel vulnerable and I'm working in there again tonight. I haven't told anyone as I'm aware it sounds far fetched.

Did you hear the crash before the pictures fell?

I cannot rationalise this for you, since, pictures threw themselves across the room.

I have experienced phenomena, therefore my explanation will not at all be of the whole 'no you just thought that they fell off the wall'

The question here, for me - is....were there other canvas pictures on the wall too? What was the significance of the two that threw themselves?

Well the crash startled me awake so I didn't see it occurring. There were 6 canvas pictures, only 2 flew off, they were spaced 1 ft apart at different heights. When I dared to pick them up they were both of the same resident.

Yes, that's what I was getting at. The similarities of the canvas. My deduction from what you've said is that - this is to get your attention. I am presuming that this resident is now passed on?

There is nothing to be scared of, so please don't go into fear about any of this.

The pictures were of a resident who is very much alive, she is a young girl. The first thing I did when I picked my jaw up was run to her to her room to check she was ok as my instinct was something was wrong but she was fine.

I don't feel scared of it but I feel the need to explain it. I just told my husband and he said of course they just fell but I know they didn't/couldn't.

So, don't read anything into it then. Just accept that two pictures fell off the wall. There's no point in going round in circles trying to wonder why, or justify to others what you know is true.

Not far fetched to me at all.

Thanks, I know it wasn't logical. One of the ladies who died was fond of me and I of her. She was a character and throwing plates across the room was a common way of seeking attention.

It's comforting to take the incident as her communicating with me and actually the idea of there being "something" after death appeals too.

I think I need to open my mind.

And thinking of it she really didn't like the girl who the pictures were of.

Just come across this smile

I too work in a care home but for older people with dementia and other diseases. I have absolutely no doubt in telling you that I have seen some of our residents in the home after they have passed on. And noticed things that would certainly point the finger at that particular person. For example you had a good relationship with a lady that has recently passed on - this could be why you were the one to experience this event of the pictures falling. Also the girl in the pictures wasn't best loved by the deceased - another reason to believe it was her.

I've even seen our home cat who recently died, I was very close with him.

I actually find care homes very spiritual places and never feel threatened by an encounter or a visit.

I'm sure lots of people disagree with me but I know what I saw and I am a strong believer in myself and the spiritual world smile
