I admit it. I think I have a little clairvoyance in me. I’ve had dreams of past loved ones that really felt real. And I’ve felt them at times when I’m alone. I’ve felt things in cemeteries and funeral homes, too. I’ve even known things that I shouldn’t know. It freaks me out sometimes.
I remember when my grandfather died and my grandmother asked me to deliver his eulogy. I was honored, but it also scared the bejeebies out of me. The thought of talking in front the family had me very nervous. What if I messed up or if what I said wasn’t good enough? I loved my grandfather.
A few days before the funeral I was in bookstore and my eyes just went to a poster on the wall that read: The number three top-rated fear in life is death. The number one is public speaking. So if you’re giving someone’s eulogy you’re actually worse off than the person in the casket.
Right then I could swear I heard my grandfather laugh. He had this unique laugh, a belly kind of laugh, the kind you expect from Santa Claus. It was so clear and so real that I actually looked around for the man who had laughed.
No one was there. It was just me with my memories or maybe me with the spirit of my grandfather.
Then there was a crazy dream about a neighbor who had passed away about five years earlier. In the dream she knocked on my door and when I got there, she was walking down the street with a redheaded little boy who looked about three.
She’d had a grandson with red hair named Reagan, but he was seventeen by then. She glanced back at me and said she’d been waiting for the boy so she could leave. It was a strange dream, so real, so otherworldly. But dreams are crazy and I pushed it to the back of my mind. Imagine my surprise when two days later my son told me he’d seen on Facebook that Reagan’s little brother had died. It quickly went from being a strange dream to a scary one.
Riley in Two Feet Under is a ghost whisperer or as she sometimes calls herself a ghost fixer because they expect her to fix their problems. And in this book the fix is a hard one. The spirit she’s dealing with is prisoner. And he didn’t go to jail for jaywalking either. We’re talking murder.
And his fix isn’t easy. She has to face and convince a gang leader that he needs to donate part of his liver to a niece he never knew he had.
It’s dangerous and you can imagine that Hayden, her comatose boyfriend isn’t happy about her putting herself in danger. Can he protect her? Will the few tricks up his sleeve as a spirit be enough to save her?
Do you think you have a little ghost whisperer in you? Have you ever felt as if you weren’t alone, that a spirit was with you? Have you ever felt as if a loved one who had passed had stop by for a visit?
