What Do Spirits Smell Like?

So, a weird and wonderful experience happened to me that I wanted to share with you. My husband was in the hospital after a serious car accident and I left his bedside one afternoon to get some work done at church. I was dashing from my office to the kitchen when, all of a sudden, I smelled pipe smoke. This is not really possible because 1) no one had been in the building for two days, 2) no one in my church smokes a pipe and there is no smoking on campus, and 3) the nearest building is quite a distance from my church so it could not have come from there either!

As soon as I smelled it, I instinctively knew it was my great grandfather and it made me smile. I even giggled out loud when I made the connection. It felt like he had paid me a visit to let me know I could handle the crisis I was facing and everything would be okay. After the message was received, the smell disappeared and never reappeared again.

Later that night, I asked my Mom if my great grandfather had ever smoked a pipe. Much to my surprise, she told me he had one with him constantly! This was a detail about him I had never known about my great grandfather before, so it confirmed my intuition about what I had experienced at church.

Has anyone out there had a similar experience with smells and spirits? This has never happened to me before. It wasn’t something I was expecting to occur nor was I intentionally trying to contact someone from beyond the veil. Instead, it was a surprise visitation from my great grandfather whom I never met in person but have always felt a strong connection to him ever since I was a teenager. Blessed be!
