Encounter With The Unknown

Have you ever had any strange encounter with the unknown? I haven't. But I am hearing stories about it.

Some of my friends had advised me not to look back when I left the graveyard after a burial ceremony. They told me that the spirits would follow me home, and there would be bad consequences to my family.

Some of my people also reminded me to wash my face after paying my last respect to the dead, before I meet up with my family members, as this may bring bad luck upon them.

I don't know. I am getting confused too. But I listen to advices, and I don't want to have anything to do with the unknown.

Some said there are ghosts around us. I wonder what are ghosts. Some said they are just human beings not living in the physical bodies. These are people just like you and me. This gives me goosebumps! And I don't like it.

Some said there are evil spirits around us. I wonder what are evil spirits. Some said they are the messengers and ministers of the devil sent to disturb us, haunt us, and harm us. I don't like this too. I can get real scared!

Some said these are good reminders to those who have bad conscience, bad hearts, and bad intention. It would warn them every time they want to do bad. I don't like it too! I wonder how true and applicable these can be.

I have no problem attending the wake and funeral service. I have no qualms about the burial ceremony too. And I can walk around and help out whenever necessary. Yes, I do look back before leaving the graveyard.

But I believe in washing my face before I meet up with the rest of my family.

Maybe it is because I don't want them to see my sad and tired face after visiting the dead.

Maybe it is for some other reasons. I don't know, and I don't want to know.

But the good thing is I have never had a strange encounter with the unknown, and I don't think I want to.

Well I've had a couple of experiences which led me to do a bit of research. I have come to the conclusion that the spirits are people who have died and for whatever reason, have not moved on into their journey. I believe they can become evil if they are stuck in that condition for many years. But I am not afraid. I try to stay focused on love... but when in doubt, I cast them out of my home, space, presence, etc in the name of Jesus and I call on the angels for help also. Definitely and interesting topic with many opinions. Love and Light to you.

Thanks Sandra Cobb for your comment. I think we must learn not to be afraid of them or life will be really miserable.
