True Ghost Story: New Lenox, Illinois
A past love leaves a surprising message for a suburban mother
The day started like any other weekday for this suburban mother. She made breakfast for her teenagers and sent them off to school. However, this usual day took an unusual turn when Saleen received a call from her friend, Colleen.
A few minutes into the conversation, Saleen heard knocks against her wall. That was odd because her neighbors had left for the day. Colleen, a psychic medium, then told her a presence was with her.
“Do you know someone named Rob?,” she asked.
Saleen froze when she heard this. Rob had been her lover. He died a year before she met Colleen.
Over the next ten minutes, Colleen delivered personal information to Saleen – information only she would know.
Colleen said Rob wanted to leave and he had a message for her, but he didn’t like communicating through a medium. Rob was a very private person in life and this seemed like an intrusion. He told Saleen, via Colleen, that she made the right decision by not contacting his family and she should move on with her life. Rob also acknowledged his own actions led to his death.
This encounter made Saleen cry. She thanked Colleen and started a shower.
But, the encounter hadn’t ended yet.
While in the shower, she felt a hand gently rest on her back and the bathroom filled with smell of cologne – Rob’s usual cologne. When she got out, she saw a dove, his favorite bird, and two hand prints on the mirror (see picture above). The message, “Move on,” came directly into her mind.
Saleen felt a warm sensation and peacefulness roll over her as the mirror images and cologne scent faded away.
