Sunday Thoughts

I know it's not tuesday, but I'm having random thoughts anyway. Here's what I'm thinking about:
  • Can dead people read our minds? I know at first your gonna laugh, but think about it. If not, how come we talk to them, go to their wakes and grave sights? I've gone to the place where my Dad is buried, as well as other family members just to say "hi" and pay my respects. But why? Do they know? Do they care?
  • If they can read our minds, do they come when summoned? This is important to know because, as I'm sure I've told you before, I tend to think quite a bit in the shower. For some reason I haven't figured out yet, I tend to think about dead people while in the shower. It'd be bad enough if my Dad and Grandparents showed up in my bathroom while I'm butt-naked, but how about my 6th grade boyfriend who killed himself after high-school? I'm not sure I want him seeing me naked. Or what about our buddy that just died a couple weeks ago? I think about him sometimes too. He was a really nice guy, but I don't want him in my shower.
  • Do dead people get mad when I let my dogs run loose in the cemetery? Well, not "loose" per se, I walk/jog along beside them, but I let them off leash to get some exercise. Plus I always always pick up the poo (it's important to be a responsible dog owner). But do they care that the dog may piddle where they are buried? 
  • When I die can I go visit the people that are important to me and say goodbye, kinda like what happened here?
  • Will my husband ever quit yelling at me to stop blogging so we can go see the Rams lose today??
  • Grr. More random thoughts on tuesday!!

Hahah... I have those same thoughts lol.. (ugg, sorry Melissa at Mommy is in the bathroom again, signed into the NoMo account) Including the shower ones lol.

I'm about 99.9% dead people can hear your thoughts, but not really read your mind. And I'm also pretty sure they know when you're thinking about them and can 'visit' if they want, although, I'm thinking nakedness doesn't matter when ur dead.

But just in case... I try not to think about them then either lol

I think they can see you but they only see your soul - not your body. So don't fret when you wash up!

otin said...

In regards to all of your dead questions, If they can read YOUR mind, they are probably confused! LMAO!!!!! hahahah

I am kidding, I wuv my Bambi wambi!!

I don't know about reading minds, but if you can visit people, I'm sure gonna have a lot of fun when I'm gone.

my mother believes her dead physician father (gone since '77) makes regular appearances in odd places, especially during times of crisis. i have had interesting experiences such as the one you described with mr. jim. i'm a buddhist, and we believe a deceased person hangs around for a little while, but not indefinitely - so i don't take it as far as my mother does. anyway. that was an interesting post. thanks.

I agree with Beth. We must be on a different physicl plane than dead people, so I don't think they see our bodies either.
Love the way you think while showering!

I've also wondered about this. Say I die. Do I get to hear my husband's thoughts? About what he "really" thinks of me? And what if he remarries? Do I get to hear the comparisons?

I hope not.

Oh gosh, now you've got me thinking and all confused!

wtf?? sometimes I think you need a proper job and therefore less time to think in the shower....
Dead people are connected to you and are there to help but in your case you're beyond help so stop hassling them.
Here's what I think about in the shower...do I have time to defuzz my fuzzy parts? what in the heck is that? crap Daisy get the fuck outta here and finally...what if a live person were to see me right now?

I haven't a clue as to what I think about this subject since I've never thought about this before. Fascinating though. Something for me to think about as I go to sleep shortly....lol.

Dead people seeing me naked? I'm not sure that would be healthy for any of us! Now I have to rethink everything I do for fear the dead are watching me!

marinik said...

you know it's interesting... i often think about that too, what really happens when we go...??? I've been talking to hubby... hoping he will show me a sign or tell me how he is and what's going on... but nothing... oh well... we'll just keep wondering till we cross over huh..
