They Too Were "Ghost-Told" of a Death

Quote:In the posts below I have described about 200 cases of people who reported seeing an apparition of someone who had died, but whose death was unknown to the person seeing the apparition:

More Accounts of Veridical Apparitions

Even More Cases of Veridical Apparitions

Erlendur Haraldsson, Ph.D  "The Departed Among the Living - An Investigative Study of Afterlife Encounters"  (2012)

From the White Crow Books description of the book:

Quote:"Scientist, Erlendur Haraldsson, a native of Iceland, sought an answer to his question, “Have you ever been aware of the presence of a deceased person?” In the modern and educated society of Iceland, one of the Scandinavian countries; he conducted an extensive survey. During the following years, detailed personal interviews were conducted with over 450 people who responded with a yes to questions about personal experiences of the deceased while in a waking state."

For the most part these cases are not strongly veridical, but they are still very indicative of true afterlife encounters.

Some examples from the very many documented in this volume:

Quote:The clock from Eyrarbakki
This happened shortly after my father died. I was in bed sleeping but woke up and felt there was something at my side. I saw my father there and looked at him, reached out and touched him. He was just as he had been, wearing a blue shirt over his underwear…. He got out of the bed and walked to the room he had lived in and which was across from mine. As he walked, he pointed to the wall without saying a word. On that wall there was a large clock that he had earlier asked me to deliver to his grandson in Reykjavík.  (#2010)

Thorgerdur
An old woman died in my home village. I had known her well since I was a child. She died in a house in the middle of the village and there she was “kept” in a room in the house, as they used to do, as there was no morgue there at that time. I was walking down the road. It was bright and sunny and I was walking along the road. I cannot remember if it was the day after she died or one of the following days. Anyway I met the lady outside that house and walked a little towards her and I nodded my head towards her, just as you do when greeting. When I met her I was completely unaware of the fact that she had died. I had quite forgotten about it. It was just like normal. But as soon as she had passed by me I thought to myself: “How can that be? Thorgerdur is dead.” That was her name. I looked right back but then I could not see her… I remember the incident so vividly. (#5114)

What a beautiful child
I have only had a psychic experience at one time. It was regarding a boy who died when he was four years old and happened about half a year after he died. My husband was his grandfather. I once lay awake in bed at home and was wide awake. Then suddenly I saw a child´s face and thought to myself: “What a beautiful child”. At the same time I felt myself thinking: “Oh, that´s little Siggi” and at that he disappeared. (#2024)

The Cousin
I was in the kitchen in the afternoon and had just finished breastfeeding my child.  I felt weak and sat down.  There was a knock on the door and in came my cousin with another man and said: “Hello cousin”.  I thought he was more nimble than usual, but he was always an amusing boy and very good-natured.  He introduced his companion as our grandfather, who just smiled.  My cousin said he was hurrying home and I wanted to go along with them, but he did not want me to.  But I was in the hall anyway putting on my coat when the newcomers disappeared. At that moment my mother arrived and she did not see a thing.  While I was talking with my cousin I had forgotten that he was dead.  He had drowned a few months earlier when he was about twenty. He had planned to go to navigation college. I was very frightened to begin with, but later it did not have any effect on me, either good or bad. I did not look upon this as a haunting. (#596)

Good stuff - Iceland also has a lot of elf sightings right? And I believe mediumship is/was somewhat popular there as well?

It might be one those places closer to the Other Side...

I think Scandinavia in general has kept loosely in touch and even here in Gothenburg, in the woods, people build Gnomes, Trolls and fairy homes as if they still want to see such creatures.  I have never seen anything strange here but when you walk through the woods on your own, it's hard not to feel the life of the forest and eventually feel it becoming a part of you.  Even in the middle of winter, if you keep the right mindset, you can feel its heartbeat.  During such times, pareidolia can haunt or enchant nearly every step of your journey too.   I have never felt like I was in any danger though.
