I am very sensitive to spirit and energy. I don't always see things, which I believe is a bit of a blessing. I experience spirit physically like static electricity. I can walk into a room and it feels as if I am surrounded by spider webs. Then if I tune in I can sometimes see the spirit and communicate with it. It is kinda spooky but I am used to it. Now that I have revealed the truth of my spookiness, perhaps you will share yours.
I have felt spirit, smelled like cigarette smoke when it was a teenager who just died violently, a rose when spirit was helping me write my metaphysics and I have seen the shadows of them when they were friends that passed. I was knocked on the leg by a deceased child who had drowned that day and was lost.
Over the years, I have become very attuned to spirit activity if it is present. I think it depends on the nature of the spirit as to how it manifests itself. I have witnessed swirling masses of grey mist, dark shadows, blue and white orbs, blue pin pricks of light, I have seen complete manifestations, translucent and solid. While researching my book, I actually encountered a physical entity, he was as real as you and I...until he wasn't.
I've been touched, slapped, kissed. I've had my hair pulled and nearly frozen to death. I've been made sick and made to cry.
All in all, I rarely look for the ordinary, so my experiences range from the sublime to the gut wrenching.
Terry, you're a paranormal investigator, didn't you say?
Yes, I do paranormal investigations. I have been doing it for almost two decades now.
Terry, may I ask how you started with that aspect of your life? Did you just purchase one piece of equipment and it took off from there, or did you begin to find yourself meeting with others interested in such activities?
At one point in time I needed help understanding what was happening. I visited with some members of the Midwest Paranormal Society. They are not in large an investigation unit, but they have legitimate investigators within their group. I have always had a sensitive nature to the dead, and one thing led to another and I ventured out on my own (after I completely understood the ramifications of what investigations may lead to.)
You could have an incredibly active adrenal, hypothalamic, pituitary axis-You may want to consult an MD. Always consult a professional when unexplained phenomenon occurs...It never hurts to play it safe. Really it reads well, but if you're having these anomalies, see a doc-
I understand what you are saying, but if medical issues were the cause, one would have these episodes where ever they happened to be. I can assure you, I have absolutely no activity at home, which I should have in that instance.
There are many facets to our existence that can not be explained away with conventional wisdom. I understand how someone steeped in scientific knowledge would insist on attempting to find rational explanation for what flies in the face of scientific belief, however, keep an open mind...you might be surprised at what you can learn.
I certainly will. Thank you for your reply. I will take a look at your work your experiences sound interesting.
When a person has experienced ghosts or even spirits several times, there is no denying that there is an extra type of energy present and no doctor in the world would be able to dissuade us who have. However, it is true that there are certain types of diseases that cause hallucinations, but they are pretty well known and common.
I have been interacting with spirits since before my birth. :-) When I was young I spoke to an old farmer who worked the land the naval base housing was built over. He visited me daily and we discussed the days happenings just before I went to sleep. He appeared as solid as anyone in corporeal form once he sat on my bed. He did begin as a spot on the edge of the bed sinking in and then would materialize. I have been speaking to, conveying messages and at least aware of spirits all my life.
The first time I was aware of a spirit was when My Father died in his plane crash. He was supposed to be at my house at 6 pm to give me a college tuition check and we would have dinner. He had called me earlier that day in the morning to ask me if I wanted to fly with him while he flew some friends to some destinations and dropped them off. It was a Sunday and I was cramming for an exam. I told him I just couldn’t as I really had to study. Somehow-it broke my heart, as afterward when I got off the phone, I just started sobbing. I did not know why-but I sobbed and sobbed with a heavy sadness. My roommates kept trying to figure out what was wrong with me too.
Later that day after I had been studying all day and was lying on my living room floor reading, I ‘sensed’ that Dad was there. It was a ‘knowing’. There was no doubt at all that it was him. I looked up and called out his name, ‘Daddy? Daddy? Where are you?’ I got up and thought he must have come in and gone into the kitchen. But I went in the kitchen and he was not there. Then I looked over at the clock-and it was indeed 6 pm-and then everything started feeling awful…as I felt something was very- very -wrong. I did not receive notification or validation of this till about 2 hours later when the phone rang with a crying friend of Dad’s who asked me to come to the house and he would tell me why later….but I already knew…
