    I'm not a very firm believer in the facts of the paranormal, but I do admit that there are unexplainable things.
    One of my few experiences was when I was 7 and dealing with the very first times I was home alone. I had come home from school and was doing my homework, and I kept hearing the chairs from the kitchen moving around on the floor, as if my family were at home and kept pulling them to sit. For a lot of years from then on I couldn't stand silence when I was alone, so I learned to do everything with the TV or the radio on.

    The other experience brings me back to a very bad memory. Last summer, just before school ended, I was at my computer working on something, and I had to take a break. I left my head on my back and started thinking, out of the blue, of this local band. For some reason, I was questioning myself what would happen if one of them died, or if something happened to one of them. For about 15 minutes my mind wandered in the most ridiculous assumption that one of the bandmembers might die. A few days later, the guitarist of the band had a climbing accident and died after a week in a coma.

    It might be one sad coincidence, but, for sure, I was upset. The guy was only 17, and he had the most amazing love of life, and he was talented and funny and nice. RIP.
    The guitarist dying isn't exactly a paranormal thing. It could've been you telling the future, without realizing it. The mind is a powerful thing. I had somewhat of an experience like that before. My boyfriend had to bring a friend of mine home on a day that I had flute lessons after school, so I was there for awhile. On my way home, coming around a curb, I randomly had the thought: "Dave got into a car accident". Around 9pm that night, Dave got online and told me that he had gotten into a car accident on the way home from dropping my friend off. It freaked me out so bad, and I'm just glad he wasn't hurt.
    Maybe I expressed myself wrong, or whatever. It's not the fact that the guy died that was paranormal, it was the fact that I had those thoughts before it happened. I didn't say his death was paranormal, but I insisted on it because, well, it has no importance here, but it shook me hard.

    I definitely believe in the paranormal...
    Firstly, on the subject of Ouija boards, because they are something that both interest and freak the hell out of me...

    When my dad was younger, he used to play on them a lot... now, my dad thinks spirits/religion/anything 'unexplainable' is a load of crap. But, there have been two instances which he can't really explain.

    He never owned an actual Ouija board, and instead used to make his own with his friends using Scrabble pieces and a wine glass. He was working for BA (British Airways) at the time, and the glass kept going Q, A, Q, A, Q, A... back and forth, back and forth.

    They didn't think anything of it, until the following morning... a Quantis airplane had crashed, killing everyone on board. My dad says that was to do with radio vibrations in the air, but that doesn't explain his next encounter in any way...

    Talking to the father of his first wife, who'd recently died. The spirit kept saying to look after Sandra (his ex-wife) and, I don't know what else... he doesn't like to talk about it. Then again, my dad's the Athiest who constantly screams obscenities at God. :roll:

    ___

    I have a lot of my own experience with Tarot Cards. Aged twelve, I remember using my mother's (which she then through away due to them being against her new found, strengthened religion), and having them tell me that if I was to carry on in the way I was, everything would go downhill. It talked of lack of motivation, self-destruction... yeah. Quite strange.

    And recently, I went through a period of over-using them. To be honest, I feel like they feed off current energy. In a bad mood, the reading is bad; a good mood? The reading is great... there's usually a degree of truth involved, and I've had them accurately describe my past, but I think there's something slightly negative about the whole thing... I don't know, that could possibly be a sign that I'm not meant to use them due to having a dodgy aura or something? *shrugs*

    I'm only bitter because they've told me that I'll end up commiting suicide. ^_^ (Not directly, but that was how I inferred "taking the coward's way out" and other things that seemed to point to violence acted upon the self)

    To Libbey Crocodile.;; it isn't possible for a spirit to choke someone in the physical plain. She could've just been having an out-of-body experience-where her spirit had left its shell to travel to other plains, and was just returning.

    And Boheme Shit., that's what I meant. The thoughts about the guitarist dying isn't paranormal.

    Well I'm not a specialist in the paranormal field(as you definitely seem to be), but I wouldn't call those thoughts regular, either. Maybe they're called otherwise, but you can't say that I thought of someone from the band dying three days before it happened and it's plain normal.

    Did I ever use the word "normal"?
    I think not.
    And just for clarification, I'm not trying to argue. So if anything I say seems to come off snotty, I'm not being that way.

    But it depends on how you look at it doesn't it? The paranormal activities that go on around us is the same energy psychics have.

    plus, aren't they both put into the category or "Unexplained" or "Supernatural"?

    rofl. She called you a specialist in the paranormal feild. Imagine if she met your mom, Char. haha.

    Anyway...I'm leaning more and more toward how Erin speaks of the paranormal. It makes a LOT of sense...to me at least.

    I was being quite sarcastic, thank you very much.
    I'm not trying to start something, don't read too much into it, but, for the future, don't talk about people on threads. Feels like gossip. I didn't feel comfortable reading your post.
    To put an end to it, I'm not sure what that was, I don't think I'll ever know, but I don't care that much anymore.

    I think Lyzz realized you were being sarcastic, since you put it out there quite well.
    And it is not gossip if it is not bad. I am not spreading rumors.

    There is this place in my hometown, it's this large peice of bush area beside the kiwi hatchery. I have noticed and felt everyime when I go past this sick feeling. My friends mom pointed it out and I was just,"you get that feeling too?" I'm not sure if there has been any paranormal sightings but just on that feeling it makes you believe.

    Have you ever asked around to see if there were any paranormal sightings and whatnot?
    When you say "sick feeling", do you mean something like, it feels as if your stomach became a botomless pit? Or maybe it lifted up into your throat? I apologize if that sounds gross, but I would really like it if you could elaborate more on that sick feeling.

    I also meant to comment on vonny's experience.

    I would say that if the experience was calming, it definately was not some evil or angry spirit. It could have been one of your spirit guides, or possibly a loved one who passed away. If you felt safe, then they were there watching over you.

    That feeling of being safe always makes me smile. =)

    I apologize if you took my comment the way you did...but it's not gossiping when you can see what I'm saying. And for the record...I figured you were attempting to compliment her instead of make a sarcastic remark to her. I can't read sarcasm through a computer. For the record...your comment kind of pissed me off, and I would recommend to refrain from sarcastic comments with people you don't know.Reading your post pisses me off. I'm not fighting with you, and I'm not starting something. I'm stopping here, as I suggest you do too, but I'm not telling you to do anything. I find that rude.

    And in other news...I too have felt the comforting feeling for no apparent reason. I also have a lot of times with deja voo. I'll dream about staring at a sepcific spot, and later on, after I've nearly forgotten about the scene I see it. I don't know if that's my mind playing tricks on me or whatever...I could be crazy.

    It felt as though you wanted to be sick, like your stomach was churning. No I havn't asked anyone, I'm not sure of anyone who would go there. M enad my friend were thinking about camping over night there but we decided against doing it seeing it's near a busy road.

    Well, for one, it;s true that it wasn't very nice of me to be sarcastic in this situation, but the responses so.CONTAGIOUS gave made me feel like I couldn't even dream to simply express an opinion and be left alone with it.
    I said it feels like gossip because it was like "She named you a specialist ect. She's so silly"(used silly as a nicer word to what I felt). Maybe I got the wrong thing and I read too much into it myself, but at the time, that was what I felt. I'm awfully sorry to piss you off, but maybe now you feel kinda like I felt. I only responded to apologise and explain myself.

    We all share our opinions. You share your's, I will share mine. I am not trying to shove my thoughts and opinions down your throat, I am just trying to make a point.
    I apologized for coming off snotty, and that is all I can say.

    Am I the only one extremely fascinated with the paranormal?
    Ever since I was a kid, it's just... amazed me.
    There definitely is something else out there.

    I totally agree with you. I am a paranormal-freak (I get it from my mom XD). I enjoy trying to contact spirits, even if it sometimes scares the pants off of me. I am very much into the Pagan religions and meditation.

    Oh yes. I used to be very much into Paganism, and I'd say I'm a mix of that and Agnosticism. I'm not much for meditation, except for my own 'type' BeforeI go to sleep, if I clear my mind, I hear people talking. I think it's the other side, or the 'veil' contacting me, or me simply 'eavesdropping'.

    I am not sure why it's so fascinating. It just seems amazing that there is another world other than my own that I can sort of 'contact' in a sense.

    And that so came off creepy, didn't it?
