Okay... without reading all of the replies...
I do - but have a question.
My aunt is 93 years old. I visit her often and she tells me things that happen to her.
For a while - she has been complaining that her thermostat on her A/C-heating unit in her house was not working properly. Her son-in-law has told me (when I visit him) that he has personally changed the thermostat - putting in a new one... 4 times now.
Well... my aunt says it doesn't work. So - I replaced it again - last month. With a new digital model. Nice one. I have one like it on my A/C-heating unit. It works well for me.
So today, I learned that she is claiming that this new one isn't working well, either. Roger - the s-i-l went over a couple of nights ago, and sure enuf - it had been set to about 85, from 76 degrees. My aunt swears that she didn't change the thermostat. Roger - by this time is a bit frazzled, and pretty much tells her that it cannot change itself.
Poor aunty takes this to mean that he is accusing her of lieing.
I told aunty that he wasn't doing that - but that we just want to try to get this thing working.
Long story short - I went over to visit my cousin and Roger today - and we talked about it a bit. We both agreed that something is gonig on - we're just not sure what. When I returned to my aunt's house, she told me the following...
(First - yall have to promise not to tell anyone... okay? Good. - I have to make yall promise to not tell... cuz I had to.)
She told me that while I was gone, her grandpaw came to her in her living room. He told her that she was wrongly being 'accused' of changing the thermostat... that it was him that was doing it. (Her grandpaw... my great grandpa - has been dead for quite some time now... for those who may not realize it...)
She of course, accepts things like this as being normal.
I guess my question is... do 'spirits' do things like this? Are they capable of making changes to an electronic thermostat? Would they? For what purpose? (It usually gets set hotter.)
It's not that I am doubting my aunt... I tend to listen to all sides - and then will go away and think on matters.
I am leaning towards a theory that I am formulating... that her diabetes... and blood-sugar levels go wonky - and she does things - and then later does not remember that she did them.
Either that... or she has a dead relative visiting her.
I'm narrowing it down to these two theories. Yup. It's gotta be one or the other.
