What is paranormal or supernatural activity?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to Wikipedia, paranormal activity can be defined as a subset of pseudoscience. What sets the paranormal apart from other pseudosciences is a reliance on explanations for alleged phenomena that are well outside the bounds of established science. Thus, paranormal phenomena include extrasensory perception (ESP), telekinesis, ghosts, poltergeists, life after death, reincarnation, faith healing, human auras, and so forth. The explanations for these allied phenomena are phrased in vague terms of “psychic forces”, “human energy fields”, and so on. This is in contrast to many pseudoscientific explanations for other nonparanormal phenomena, which, although very bad science, are still couched in acceptable scientific terms. Paranormal and supernatural are terms often used interchangeably to describe the same phenomena.

What Is a Ghost?

29 August 2015 | What Is a Ghost? and other definitions

According to my dictionary anyway, a ghost is an apparition of a dead person which is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. However, ghosts may be experienced indirectly as noises, emanations, smells, shadows and so on. In fact, ghostly activity might better describe what most people think of as a ghosts and that can be defined more broadly as of or relating to a ghost : suggesting a ghost. In essence, ghostly activity can also be defined as an aspect of paranormal activity.

A Call From A Dead Friend

28 August 2015 | August 2015

Sometimes, passed over friends and relatives simply need to tell us something. Apparently, they sometimes use the phone to do this. One such example of this is the man who with friends drove to a major nearby city the night before his quadruple bypass surgery. They picked a motel and took rooms. As he unpacked a few items, the room phone rang and his friend picked it up. “It’s for you,” she told him looking shocked after all, no one knew they were staying at that Motel. “Hello, is that you?” the voice asked. “Yes,” he said. “Don’t have your surgery tomorrow. It isn’t your time to die,” said the voice. “Who is this?” he asked incredulously. “It’s Jimbo,” said the voice. The only person named Jimbo he could think

The Bright Light From Heaven

26 August 2015 | August 2015

I heard this story from my mother a few years ago. My mother and her first husband were in Idaho in the mid 1960’s camping out. They were sitting around the camp fire talking when they finally decided to get in their tent and go to bed. They both got into their camping bed and settled to get some sleep when all of a sudden they saw an incredibly bright light that illuminated the inside of the tent as though it were daylight. My mother’s first husband open the tent door and looked outside. She followed him and they looked around and they could see everything with no shadows at all. My mother described it as though she had been asleep and woken up at noon. When they noticed that

The Dead Calling

25 August 2015 | August 2015

My sister has had some pretty interesting activity on her answering machine and phones. I have heard messages from the other side left on her answering machine. We know someone or something is trying to communicate with her using electronic energy as the mode. What we both want to know is how we can better receive these messages. The messages are sometimes hard to make out, yet some of the words are very clear. These messages are not left by human vocal chords (that much we know). We do not know where to go for this. I mean, it is not like we can call the ghost busters or anything! She recently has had a good friend pass away, and I also have had a friend pass. It could be one

Mr. Skeleton

24 August 2015 | August 2015

It was 1960 and we had just built our dream home in Texas. It was good land and the area around our house was all streams, rustic countryside and the land our house was built on had no record of having had any structure built on it before.  The owner had told us that he had used the land for grazing cattle. My wife had two huge experiences in that house. I was out working and my wife was busy at home working on one of her hobbies. She noticed that the bedroom door was open and decided to go down and close it. As she neared the door she saw the strange shape of a woman in a white dress drifting out of the room and into the wall

Red Demon

20 August 2015 | August 2015

One day during my summer vacation of 3rd grade my mom had gotten in touch with an old friend who was married to a pastor of a small community church. I was forced to go to church with my mom for a few weeks to “reconnect with god”. I was a kid at the time who hated church and found it boring but soon started to enjoy it. Within a couple weeks of going to church with my mom, a man started standing next to my bed to watch me sleep. I was a kid (maybe a tad smarter than my peers) and dismissed it as a figment of my imagination. I mean, it seemed like a logical answer at the time. He was dark red, covered in horns, and

Invisible Ghost

19 August 2015 | August 2015

At home in Michigan I had just gone to bed and I was lying around with my dog when he started to completely go bezerk! I looked around the room for something that could be bothering him when suddenly I felt my arm being pulled down against the bed. I looked to see what was constricting me and I saw nothing. Then I heard heavy breathing and could feel something close to me. I could actually feel the pressure on my arm getting stronger and stronger… until it stopped. Later that night I saw a depression in the mattress that looked like someone was standing on my bed—but there was nobody there. I didn’t know what to do and had never had an experience like this before. Nothing has happened

Near Death Experience

16 August 2015 | August 2015

When I was nine years old I was a very ill child due various illnesses. I was constantly in and out of hospitals. At one point I had been sick for a long time and, by all accounts, I was close to death. All I can remember is seeing what looked like a man surrounded by light. No facial features, no distinctive marks—just the figure of a man bathed in life. He asked me directly if I was ready to go. I didn’t want to go and wanted to live. He explained that he would never hurt me but I kept wondering what would happen to my parents. It was then that I felt completely filled with love and energy. The figure was gone but that feeling remained with me

The Ghostly Horse Rider

14 August 2015 | August 2015

One late summer evening when I was a boy, my family and cousins family were walking back from a pub in the English Lake District to our camp site. It was dark. Very dark. As we followed the windey country road up the hill towards our tents we were chatting animatedly on various topics. It was then that my cousin heard the faint sound of a galloping horse from behind us. “Listen,’ she said, suddenly concerned that this horse rider might not see us in the road, ‘let’s move aside, a horse is coming.’ We all stepped aside onto the grassy verges. Sure enough, there was the sound of a horse galloping getting louder. We all waited. In the field to one side of the road, we all watched as

Weird Call

12 August 2015 | August 2015

Just over a week ago I was lying in bed relaxing and trying to fall asleep. I had just turned off the TV and I was about to turn over and try to get some sleep, but my cell phone, that I had turned off and put on the charger, suddenly started vibrating. I decided to ignore it but it turned on and started ringing, I didn’t recognize the number at all, so I picked it up and said “hello”. There was nothing but static on the other end of the phone and then the call was ended. I tried to call it back, but it said it was out of service.

A Visitor from Vietnam

11 August 2015 | August 2015

A friend once told me a story about a college professor of his brothers who was a Nam Veteran. He explained that in a particular part of that godforsaken country, no man would enter. Well, a few of the soldiers did and they saw a creature there which to this day, they cannot describe. The creature was about 10 yards away from the patrol, and in a blink of an eye it was suddenly right in front of them, then suddenly standing behind them. After they returned home, this creature showed up at the professors home in Maryland. It would physically make marks on his body and his wife’s body. He contacted an old friend from the war who lived up in Canada, and he said it had visited his

Ouija Board Ghost

08 August 2015 | August 2015

My mother’s friend’s family lived in a house that was in one of the oldest recorded towns in Texas. The friend’s mother who lived there had seen a ghost of a Civil War soldier appear there several times. He would just appear and stare at her and then disappear. My mom and her friend played with a Ouija board in that house and my mom said that furniture in the room started shaking and it made a lot of noise and also drawers in some piece of furniture started coming in and out. That is all she said happened but she was sure it was provoked by a ghost since it happened when they were playing with the Ouija board.

A Meeting With God

06 August 2015 | August 2015

A few weeks into my college days, as I made my way from the Students’ Union building to my student flat on the 19th floor of a campus building, I noticed a rather suspicious looking character who seemed to be following me around. As I entered one of the elevators in the ground-floor of the building, he followed peering sideways at me but looking away whenever I tried to catch his eye. As the elevator arrived at my floor, I was hoping it was all just my imagination and that perhaps he would continue up to the top floor above me. But, as I left the elevator, he followed and as I reached the doorway into the group of six study bedrooms, shared kitchen, and bath that was my home
