Real Spiritual Experiences



I think I am a very spiritual person. Note: spiritual, not religious. My father is a priest, he and my mother are both christian. I'm not sure what I believe in but I definitely believe in the soul. The soul is an extraordinary thing and I can't imagine that it isn't meant for more purpose than this.

Recently, my grandmother passed away. I loved her very deeply. It's been 11 months since her passing and I have been hoping to meet her in a dream just to know that she's feeling alright or just to get to see her one more time. She passed away because of a lung-related disease, she was a big smoker. She had been in a hospital for all the time I knew her (I'm 18).

I've smoked since I was 13 years old. I stopped smoking in January but it only lasted for about two months, now I'm smoking again, just as much as before I quit.

Last night I was in bed, going to sleep, thinking of how I needed to quit smoking again. I felt in my soul that I wouldn't do it though. I had the window open so that my room wouldn't smell like cigarettes in the morning (my parents are so proud at me for quitting, I haven't told them yet). The wind was thumping the curtains up against the wall and suddenly something fell on the floor that was on the windowsill. I got up to see what it was. It was the journal I kept when I stopped smoking last. It was open on one page, where it stood; "It's freedom but not a sacrifice to stop smoking".

Coincidence? I think not. I've set a date for my next (and last) quitting date; Mai 21st.

Thank you grandma

hello I'm thirteen years old... I too think that this incident is not a coincidence either. I think that this is a very good sign and your future will be bright. But now I'm asking you for advice... I stole a cigarette from my mothers significant other... I really want to try it... Its sitting here in front of me and I'm worried that curiosity will get the best of

Smoking is really bad, and I've never smoked, (well, I'm only 13!) and that journal entry? Not a coincedince. (sorry for my grammar.) 😁

Good for you! And I don't think it is a cooincidence either. My mom passed away from cancer from smoking too in 2000. I quit and have started again too. It is in our minds that it is difficult to quit but I remember when I did quit that I didn't even think about cigarettes at all and if I did I had a plan to handle it. I just repeated in my mind, "three minutes!" and the craving would go away. Plus I ate a lot of fat free twizzlers. I really think your grandma is an angel looking out for you. She doesn't want you to go through the same thing. I'm sure my mom feels the same about me as she looks down on me. Good luck! You can do it!
