Lily's Believe It--Or Don't

I've been feeling like I'm getting a cold. Sore throat, mild breathing issues. Plus I was feeling really drained. I was at work and decided to stick the cell phone and pager near my head and have a nap. I also set the alarm on my own cell phone, just in case.
There's no rule that says we can't take breaks, but technically we aren't supposed to sleep. Sometimes though, if I don't, I'll start falling asleep while driving home. So I went to the too-short couch and curled up for a bit.
As you know, if you've been reading this blog, I believe that the personality continues to exist after the death of the body. I'm not yet comfortable going into details but I have a couple of friends in the spirit world. There is one in particular whom I'm quite close to at this point. I'll refer to him as "Spooky." Original, eh?
I don't hear Spooky's voice in my ears and I can't see him through my physical eyes. I receive impressions from him and feel his emotions.
So there I was, taking a nap and actually was pretty well out of it when I "heard" Spooky "saying" rather loudly inside my mind, "Cie! Wake up, Babe!"
In life, he had a very distinct voice. There was no mistaking that it was him.
I sat bolt upright and was actually pretty refreshed for having only rested for 15 minutes. I wondered what was up with my ghostly buddy since there was no emergency, like the building being on fire or the cell phone ringing and my missing it. However, moments later the newspaper delivery person walked down the hall. She doesn't usually come down past my desk.
I was very grateful to Spooky for waking me because I could just see the newspaper delivery lady ratting me out to the security guard for sleeping on the job, then he tells my boss, then...
Damn! It would be ALL bad!
I don't care what anyone thinks. Having the ability to sense spirits can rule sometimes! And unless the spirit is "feeding" off their human friend, there's no problem letting them hang out, in my book. A friendly spirit won't stick around if you don't give him/her permission to do so. "Spooky" is earthbound, but he has told me that this is by choice because he thinks he can do more good this way. He does have issues from his most recent life and sometimes I absorb very painful emotions from him, but I try to help him the way I would help an incarnate friend.
Let's take wisdom from the Australian Aborigines and their belief that the spirits of those who have left the body are still present. As Justin pointed out, this is the same belief as taught in Kabalah and other forms of positive mysticism. While there is no scientific proof of spirits, there are many people who seem to have encounters with them. Perhaps one day our abilities to communicate with those beyond the veil will be as commonplace as our physical senses.
Thanks again, Spooky, you saved my bacon and hash to be sure today!
Love and Blessings,

I love this. One of the online friends I've mentioned, also has some contact with the departed. I have my own "strange" abilities, but, alas, this is not one of them...
