Protecting Spirit

Denise, Las Vegas, Nevada, May 14, 2001

My friend's brother had just been murdered and I was at her house to help her out and show her some support. I went upstairs to say good-night to her kids and I was holding my 1 year old daughter. After I tucked them in my daughter and I proceeded down the stairs. For some reason I felt really nervous when I was walking down the stairs--like I was going to fall but I was not holding on to anything except for my daughter.

I was trying to maintain my balance when all of a sudden I felt a pressure on my arms like some one was squeezing me and holding me up--it was really cold. I proceeded down the stairs and just ran into the living room where I sat next to my husband. I felt like I needed to cry really badly. I was too afraid to tell my friend because I did not want to scare her.

The next day she called me up and told me that the night that I had left her house she went to bed and said that someone was like rubbing her back as she slept. Then she kept on feeling that someone was nudging her back! That's when I had to tell her what had happened to me in her house. She told me that her brother just loved kids and that maybe it was him protecting me and my daughter from falling. Because maybe he had sensed that I was going fall or something. What do you think? Do you think that It could have been him?
