Have you ever had a paranormal experience?

Asked by PaisleyFaye (1575points) October 4th, 2019

Like unusual things that you.
have seen, heard or felt. Its ironic how others don’t believe you until they have an experience of their own.

A few strange things when my grandmother died but nothing where I can claim to have seen spirits.

Yes, I have had odd experiences that I couldn’t explain. Some were when I was alone, some were when I was with others. Once, when I was a kid, we were camping out in a friend’s backyard. At one point, we saw a shadow of a cat cast upon the side of the tent from the neighbor’s backyard light. We saw it walk up and stop. We were going to terrorize the little beast (yeah, I was about an 8 yp boy and thought scaring a cat would be fun), but when we looked out to see where it was…there was not cat. Just a shadow not attached to anything. Eventually it moved on and we still did not see anything.
Another time, again when I was a kid, I woke up one night and heard what sounded exactly like someone eating crackers right outside my bedroom window. I looked outside to see who was there and there was no one. This happened off and on for about a few months…until the weather cooled and I had to close my window at night.
The last event happened about 10 or 12 years ago. I got up really early for work (3 or 4 in the morning) and heard what sounded like someone dribbling a basketball on the sidewalk out front. I looked and there was no one there. But the odd part was that as I moved to the front door, the sound seemed to move to the back door. When I went that direction, it seemed to be coming from the direction of the bathroom. And then it stopped. This happened a few times over the next couple months. I told my wife about it and she thought I was nuts…until she heard it one night. She asked what that noise was and I told her that was the basketball playing ghost I had heard. She did the same thing I did…tried to locate the source of the sound…and couldn’t.

I can sense when I am someplace someone has died.

I once participated in one of those light as a feather, stiff as a board gatherings. When it was my turn, I felt a slight shuffle and then there was a lot of giggling. Until they told me, I was totally unaware of how high they had lifted me. They raised me until they could Only reach me with their fingertips. I was the only one lifted more than a foot. I’m sure the success was due to my willingness to trust them completely and allow my actual gravity to be controlled by them. I was disappointed that the one successful lift was the one I was “out”.

I have had detailed precognitive occurrences, some in dreams and visions, and some when awake. I don’t know where it comes from. I was never trying when it happened.

Often in my life I have known things without having been taught, for instance, placement tests, animal handling, defensive driving in extreme conditions.
Some of those things seem small, but there are a great many people stupefied by the very same things.

Sometimes I have gotten a heads up from loved ones that they were facing something dangerous or frightening.

I’ve had two or three dreams that later came true but never in a useful way.

Well, a few things have happened that were hard to explain, but I eventually found a logical reason for them. My Christina friends hated that. Something would happen that they wanted to think was a miracle, and they got upset when I came up with a perfectly logical, rational explanation for it.

I don’t believe in ghosts or spirits or the paranormal.

I have had a number of things happen, yes, mostly not important to anyone but me, and sometimes not even that important to me, just odd and/or interesting.
