Things that bump into the night
We all have heard it before, that distinctive feeling that we are being watched. The disembodied steps at the bottom of the steps. The silhouette at the corner of your eye. Is even probable, that you or your family have a story to tell in regards of this phenomena.
Do you have a ghost story?
Have you ever experienced paranormal phenomena?
To believe or not to believe
This is the kind of subject that seems to resonate across culture,race and time. We can go back in time ,to the holy books, oral tradition and urban legends and we can stumble upon story after story of unexplained phenomena and what the ancients called the other world.
One third of Americans believe in the existence of "ghosts". As a matter of fact you might know someone that has a story about paranormal activity. Maybe even you. At some point in history, this phenomena fell into the category of mystic experiences. When still cameras and video became tools to document paranormal activity, is even harder to prove that their are legit. With all the advancement in technology is easier to fake a ghost. Now, this prompted researchers to built more equipment with the specific purpose to record the existence of disembodied beings.
The belief that the soul continues to live beyond the death of the body feeds this phenomena and raises question for the non believers. Of course, How can there be ghosts, if there is no afterlife?
Enemy inside the house
Millions of accounts of poltergeists and hauntings flood the social media everyday. In the past, eyewitness accounts of voices, strange and even violent happenings fueled the belief that something is lurking in the shadows.
Needless to say that movies and television have given us a point of reference to what it would be like to have a paranormal experience. That can't explain the accounts from one hundred, even one thousand years ago. Stories of angels,demons, jinn, movement of objects, noises with no apparent explanation are well know and often accepted as real.
Some people swear that they are being haunted. That their homes are infested by unseen forces that keep them and their guests terrified. Documented cases have baffled investigators of these phenomena for hundred of years. Even today, well educated professionals are dedicating their lives to find an explanation that will satisfy scientific models. But that does not matter, when you see, feel,hear something that scares the big Jesus out of you, you'll believe.
Between you and me...
Have you ever had experience something that would be considered paranormal? I have seen things that would make your skin crawl. At first, because of my cause and effect mentality, I dismissed it as a thousand different normal things. When it started to become more difficult to explain, I started to do some research. It wasn't until I stumbled upon a well kept family secret that I realized that these things are more "normal" than I thought.
But that is another story...
My real paranormal experience
