Thread: Have you ever had an experiences with the paranormal?

    Have you ever had an experiences with the paranormal?

    I'm a pretty logical person and straightforward person, but I had some strange events go down when I first moved into my house so I figured why not share?

    I bought my house back in 2001 and actually paid $15K below the market value. The woman who was selling the place had an emergency back home and needed to sell it within 30 days. How could I pass up such a deal? It was only ten years old at the time and was the former model home of the subdivision.

    I moved my things in, and since I didn't have the full furniture spread yet, I slept in the small bedroom upstairs. Things went smoothly for the first couple of months. Then one morning as I went into the bathroom to get ready for work, I noticed I had a series of faint red scratches across my arms, shoulders, and chest. I inspected them closely and they were in rows of four. I brushed it off and figured I had brushed up against something in my bed (like that made sense). It happened again a couple of nights later. I woke up to the same thing--except this time they weren't so faint and I was getting perplexed. The third time it happened I was tossing in bed and actually could feel something scratching my skin. I was freaking out, but thought I was in dream mode. I went to work and mentioned the events to a co-worker. He laughed at me and asked me if I had a cat. I pulled up my sleeve and asked "do these look like cat scratches?" I showed him my war wounds and he said "Holy shit, what woman were you with last night??" I just ignored him.

    The next crazy thing happened a couple of weeks later. I awoke in the middle of the night to see a small little boy running back and forth across the foot of my bed. I convinced myself I was dreaming and, yes, covered myself under the covers. Then a few nights later I awoke to the sound of my blender in the kitchen running at full speed at 230am in the morning. I jumped out of bed and went downstairs, hit the light in the kitchen and sure enough the blender was turned on full speed. I tried to tell myself I must not have turned it off all the way the last time I used it. Two nights later--the same thing happened but this time I tossed the blender and bought a new one thinking it must be a short though my experiences were telling me otherwise. When I bought new appliances for the kitchen, while moving the the fridge I discovered a series of crayon drawings that had been done by some kid. I assumed they had been there for years. Now things were beginning to make some sense, but I really didn't want to know the whole story and I wasn't trying to move. I had learned growing up in the south that when strange things happen it's best to ignore them and they'll go away, so that's what I chose to do.

    The climax to all this happened one night in that same first year at about 1030pm. I was laying on the couch watching TV and heard a knock at the door. I get up and look of out the door and there is a black woman and a small boy standing there with her. I open the door and she says, "I'm sorry to bother you sir, but I used to live here a few years ago and my sister mailed me a package and I didn't receive it and I was wondering if it had come here by mistake." I told her no, I didn't get any misdelivered package. She apologized for bothering me and she and the kid walked back down the pathyway. It took about five minutes for it to register--how in the hell would her sister not know where she was living if she had sent her a package?? I jumped up and ran to the door and opened it, but of course the two were long gone.

    After that, I had no more issues. I never bothered to investigate the history of this house, because frankly, I don't care to know. I live in my house pretty carefree now, but when I hear a "bump in the night" I do get a littly antsy.

    Am I crazy? A dreamer? Irrational? Paranoid? Do you have some strange expereinces you care to share?

    I have a lot of para experiences. I'm sure a generous person could, in good conscience, judge a few of them to be "normal".

    Well, I can point out a few of the para-abnormal in these forums *hides*

    Now, here is a Zen (courtesy of a Zen story) remedy for Ghosts: Keep a random handful of change in your pocket. The next time you see a ghost, pull out a handful of coins, hold them out in a closed fist, and ask the ghost how many are in your hand. If they can't tell you, then they're merely a figment of your imagination.

    Maybe, but just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

    Do you have some strange expereinces you care to share?
    Too many to list. The first house we lived in when we moved to NY was "wrong". Something in it tried to kill me once. We had ghost cats living in one of the houses I lived in as a teenager. I've had strong, clear precognitive dreams a few times. My mother and I are both empathic and she says that it goes back on her mother's side.

    I don't like terms like "paranormal" or "supernatural" because they imply that these things are outside of nature. They aren't. They just aren't well understood by most people and haven't been quantified by science yet. Give it time. We'll figure it out.

    ETA: I didn't respond to the poll because none of the answers fit. I don't find the idea of unusual phenomena to be frightening per se. Depends on the specifics.

    Point taken. I can say that when all this stuff was going on I wasn't terrified as much as I was just trying to make sense of it all or just shrugging it off all together.

    At least today, I don't have to worry about any hostile entities pushing me down the stairs.

    What she said.

    I've had a ton of what you'd call paranormal experiences. I grew up with beliefs I don't really care to discuss in such a public thread (Although I might be encouraged to do so in a members-only one) and every few days or so there was something happening to me that you'd probably consider paranormal.

    Only a couple of times did it ever scare me, and only once was that experience like something out of a horror movie (which, in my experience is what the average un-paranormal-aware Joe really means when they ask about paranormal experiences)
