I had an interesting experience last night. I am a hospice nurse, and I had been waiting for a patient to pass for several days. Last night I was home, and I woke up at 2:00 with a start. I was trying to go back to sleep when I felt a REALLY cold breeze on my arm. I moved my arm slightly, and the cold area went away, but I put my arm back into the same area and felt the cold spot again. I looked at the clock and it was 2:20. I thought "I wonder if my patient passed". Five minutes later I get a phone call from the on-call nurse telling me that the patient had indeed passed at 2:15......:chair:

A few years ago during my shift(3-11)I was asked to stay for 11-7 about 5AM I was exhausted.Since I had my AM meds done except for an insulin due at 7 my supervisor told me I could leave early.That evening when I came back the RT that had worked with me the 3-11 the night before said to me "what did you do last night,Mr Jones,Mrs Smith and Mr Doe all died right after you left"I was very upset since I had felt like I was deserting my pt s by leaving before the end of my second shift.Then he said "I was kidding,I heard that you had left "early" and thought I would tease you"Needless to say I didn't think he was very funny.The creepy part was that with in a week all three of the pts he named died in the exact order that he had named them.He was shook up about it and told me this was not the first time something like this had happened to him.

I dreamed one time I was going to come out of my body and I felt this pulling from my chest and got really scared and woke up.

I don't imagine it was anything more than a dream, though.

This happened to me when I was a kid. I'm sure I was awake and lying on my back, when I felt my feet and legs lifting out of my body. I felt very peaceful, but then I got scared thinking I was dying and it stopped. It never happened again, and I never forgot about it. I heard that young kids (before they know to be frightened) leave their bodies and kind of hover around. This sounds weird, but I have memories of hanging out in the corner near the ceiling and looking down at myself sleeping. Maybe they were just dreams, though.

I think kids are much more in touch with the spiritual world, since they came from there so recently. I guess some kids hear voices, but they aren't psychotic, it's just spirits talking but we can't hear them. My son (around age 4) used to cover his ears a lot, and he seemed distraught at times. After gently asking him questions, he admitted hearing people whispering in his ears. He told me a man and a lady, but he couldn't make out what they were saying. He admitted it was very upsetting to him. So, I was freaked out thinking he had mental problems, and I started researching on line. I was shocked to find this is a common occurrence in many kids! I didn't feel so bad then. Anyway, it said to pick a child's favorite toy and tell them this toy hears the noises, too. Then I got his dinosaur that makes a roaring sound and told him whenever he hears the noise hold up the dino to your favorite toy and make it growl in the ears to chase off the noise. I also told him he could say, "Go away noises, I don't like you!" He actually did these things off and on for a few days, and then it stopped. No more noises. Strange, but true.

I've heard this and find it very disturbing. I don't want some not so nice spirits talking to my nieces. This is really going to bother me.

My great grandma always told me when I was a kid that when a baby stares at the wall (or any other object) and smiles that he/she is smiling at her guardian angels. Don't know if it's true, but it's nice to think that.

started my rounds around 12 am, i was working on my last pt at the end of the hallway and needed some assistance to lift the pt up in bed. i was about to leave the pt's bedside when a nurse in her white uniform walked in front of the room and right away i asked for her help but she continued walking w/o even stopping or looking my way. my jaw dropped in disbelief, and i decided to wait for her because she'll have to come back this same way...but she didn't. i left the pt's bedside, stepped out of the room and looked in the direction she just went to and asked myself what the heck happened with her? she could only have gone to the storage room and an empty room going under construction where only the bathroom was usable. i stared at the two closed doors at the end of the hallway for a second and opened them one by one........both were empty.

About 4 years ago, before I was a nurse, I was working on an inpatient PINS unit as a tech. One day, a sick and depressed younger man in room "4" managed to get the window in the room open and jump to his death from several stories high (I was not there that day, but there was an eery feeling on the unit for long after the incident). A couple of years later, we had a retired priest in room "4" who was very confused, combative, and agitated. He would yell and cuss and tell anyone who touched him that they were going to go to hell. It was very strange and uncomfortable. However, that afternoon as I was checking on him he was very calm and lucid. I was standing between his bed and the window talking to him when I noticed that he was looking passed me. I asked him what he was looking at and he said "Brian". I was confused, and was sure he was too. I asked him where he was, etc... to find that he was completely oriented. He said "turn around and see for yourself, honey. Brian's right there." I turned around and I don't know if my mind was playing tricks on me but I saw a weird glowy haze in the corner of the room by the window. When I left the room I told one of the nurses who verified that that was the pt's name who had jumped years before. ...goosebumps...

OMG..RN, ME TOO!!!! Still can feel the feeling of being pressed into that corner, but it stopped happening as I grew up! Too many people experience stuff like this for it to be a dream.:spin:
