Reader Remains Positive, & Her Life Changes For the Better

A reader & listener contacted me about how her family's life had changed for the better despite the challenges. I always appreciate receiving this kind of correspondence.

I received the following account from a reader:

"Hi, Lon. I'm writing to you with some good news. I've listened to your podcasts and have read your blog for several years. I have enjoyed your writings and commentary on Guardian Angels, asking for help, and staying positive. A few years ago, you and I talked by phone.

My husband, our toddler, and I had moved from British Columbia to Alberta and stayed with my parents while trying to find a house and jobs. One night, my husband argued with my stepdad and we went out for an evening drive. My husband was ranting and raving, saying he wasn't going back to my parents, that we were going to sleep in the car, etc. I was praying inwardly, begging the universe, or whatever, to help us. I needed a miracle.

Right when I asked for a miracle, I saw a meteorite blazing across the sky. It was late spring and light outside. Somehow, at that moment, I knew we were going to be OK.

We decided to visit some old friends for coffee that night and they offered me a job taking care of someone with special needs out of my home (I had been looking for a night job so that I could stay home with my child during the day while my husband worked, we couldn't afford to live on one income). Now, I could stay home with my child.

We had to find a place to live, immediately. The very next day, I went online and the first place I found, I called. The landlord told us to drive past it. If we liked the outside, he'd let us look at it.

When we pulled up in front of the house, the previous tenants were just leaving. They offered to let us look inside. We did and loved it. The landlord let us move in that very weekend (halfway through the month).

We didn't have any money for rent, not even for the damage deposit. He let us live the 2 weeks for free, pay our rent two weeks late, and let us pay the damage deposit in installments.

Two days later, we moved in. I still remember the feeling I had, the first morning. I woke up, made a cup of tea, and walked around the house. I felt so good. I can't explain it. At the time, I thought it was because I was relieved to be away from my parents. But now I know it was more about the energy of the place.

Despite all the paranormal stuff going on, we were never scared. It felt so amazing to be in the house. Everyone who came over would say how good it felt.

We were twelve thousand dollars in credit card debt when we moved in. Our relationship was rocky. Things were not OK on many levels.

Almost from the get-go, our financial status changed dramatically. Our relationship flourished. We made a large group of amazing friends really quickly. Our health improved. Our energy levels improved. My relationship with my family improved. Everything was so amazing. I can't explain exactly what was going on, but so many things happened that were over-the-top lucky.

Within nearly two years, we had gotten out of debt and saved for a downpayment for our own home, which is why we moved. I never imagined ever having enough money to buy a house, but we did. And our new place was gorgeous and in a great neighbourhood. After we moved, things were still good, but not on the level they had been while we lived in our haunted house.

I drove by it once or twice and almost went up and knocked on the door to ask the new tenants if they were having experiences, but I never had the guts.

I thought that you'd enjoy reading something positive. Thanks" H

For the most part, the horrible accounts I hear and read are sudden terrible incidents that usually remain with the experiencer for the remainder of their life. I have compiled several anxiety-filled narratives that were either told directly to me or forwarded by an associate. Listen to the accounts and form your opinions. 

Welcome to Phantoms & Monsters 'Personal Reports' - Real cryptid and unexplained reports directly from the archives of Phantoms & Monsters, and the Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team. Narrated by Lon Strickler. Join us in the chat, discuss, and ask me questions about the accounts.
