The paranormal, or supernatural, world around us is full of mystery. "Things" that many of us consider or believe to fall within the realm of the paranormal include not only ghosts but also such things as poltergeists, demons, Angels, psychic abilities, telekinesis, dreams, out of body experiences, near death experiences and even strange creatures like vampires and werewolves.

Beliefs in just what constitutes “paranormal” may vary widely from one person to another – even among those who believe without doubt that the paranormal world is real we find a wide range of differing beliefs and opinions. This is not an “all or none” situation and many people may believe some aspects but not others.
The purpose of this survey is to allow people to share their own viewpoints and opinions on what they think and believe about the paranormal.

I have always been fascinated by anything considered paranormal, supernatural or mysterious. I grew up reading books about ghosts, UFOs and ancient mysteries.
We have all had different experiences in this life that brought us to where we are today.
Myself, I have encountered strange 'things' and phenomenon which have led me to say, "I have no choice in the matter of believing in ghosts for I have encountered them." I cannot tell you what a ghost is or for sure where they come from but I do know that they are real. But that is me and that is what I know.
I also know there will be a lot of differences in opinion and what each of us may "know" from out own encounters - or lack

The After Life
Do we live on after our physical body has died? That is probably the biggest question that human beings have ever looked up and asked.
I do believe that we continue to exist after this "lifetime". I believe the idea of reincarnation makes a lot of sense and it is a definite possibility.
Some believe that we just go to "sleep" to await some future day when will be judged.
Others believe that we just cease to exist and that this physical form and realm is all that there is for us.
Those who subscribe to the idea of reincarnation believe that we are reborn again as another person in a different time and place. Some also believe that we may "come back" as a lower animal or even an insect.
The main idea is that we go through numerous lifetimes in order to work on our karma and to grow and learn.
Reincarnation is a very widely held belief around the world. There are even what many people consider to be references to the idea of reincarnation in the Bible.

What causes sleep paralysis?See results without voting
Sleep Paralysis and what causes it is a fairly big issue of debate in the paranormal vs science dialogue. But while there can't be agreement on the mechanism or cause of sleep paralysis there can be no denying that it occurs.
Many people report experiencing sleep paralysis and the phenomenon has been studied by believers, skeptics and scientists alike.
You can find literally hundreds and hundreds of different stories where people from all over the world describe their bouts with sleep paralysis.
Some insist that sleep paralysis is a normal function of the human body during sleeping and especially in dreaming. Others say that some mysterious entity such as the "Old Hag" is actually attacking the victim.
So, what is your take on sleep paralysis? What causes it? Have you ever experienced it personally?

Many of us see those fleeting shadows just out of the corner of our eye, only to focus and find them gone. We continue to go about our day chalking it up to what it usually is, a trick of the light. However, some shadows can't be explained away so easily.
Some Shadow Creatures take on a full form and are quite visible for a length of time.
Still, it might be easy to write it off as imagination or the light catching something in just the right way if it were not for the similarities in the shadows that are seen.

Before most people will truly believe that the paranormal is real they need a personal experience. Once you have encountered a haunting or similar event it is difficult not to believe!
During my lifetime I have had several different experiences with the supernatural world. I have heard ghosts (along with a witness who heard the same exact things!). I have lived in a house that I know was haunted at least two different times.
When I relate one of my experiences to others they cannot believe it as much as I do because they did not personally experience it themselves. I am not concerned with proving my stories to others however, I know what happened and that is enough for me.

Vampires and vampire legend play significant roles in the cultures of many areas around the world.
These blood-sucking beings are most common in the cultures of Eastern Europe, although similar manifestations are reported in some Asian cultures as well as some ancient cultures.
Vampire legends have a distinct background bridging several cultures and eras, making them some of the most compelling stories ever told.
The most well-known versions of vampire myth are those of the Slavic and Romanian cultures, which, due to their proximity, are surprisingly similar.......

Dress Up for Halloween?
Halloween is a time for dressing up in masks and costumes, decorating the yard and porch, and stocking up on the candy and treats for the kids.
I believe Halloween costumes are cool and I love all the toys and decorations (which seem to be get better and better every year!). But I think there might be a problem with the treats. Next Halloween, if you are handing out treats to the trick-or-treaters consider healthier options. Those kids will be getting plenty of chocolate and other junk so give them something healthy!
