I Am Interested In the Paranormal

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 18,011 People

    I grew up with people

    that believed in omens and signs of divine intervention. So, the supernatural, in comparison was an easy sell. I wished many times to have an experience be paranormal. Even if that meant being part of the good/light side. Truth is I have always, despite that yearning, feared...

    My interest in the paranormal began

    when I was seriously considering suicide...I wanted to know what happened to souls of suicides so I began researching that topic. One thing led to another and whole new way of looking at life, death and...life AFTER death opened up to me. I've since devoured dozens of books...

    Idk if anyone can help me.

    I'm posting on EP because I have a crazy situation and I know it sounds crazy so--at least on here I can remain anonymous. Throughout my life, I've had near constant "supernatural" experiences. Mostly in the form of ghosts, prophetic dreams and astral projection. I try to be...

    I was creative for the first time in absolutely

    ages... We made Christmas decorations from salt-dough (plastercine). I made a Christingle and was going to paint the fruits of the Earth on... Baked it, and in the back the cracks made a *very* evil face. Odd. Didn't like it at all. Especially since I recently saw Insidious...

    I've always felt a presence around me ever

    since I was 11 (5 years now) and I can't describe it, I just know that there's always something close to me and I can feel the area around a body part either always getting warmer or cooler and my mom even says when she's on the phone with me she'll hear voices and ill tell her...

    I see a very small shadowing running all over

    the house I always thought it was maybe the cat or dog, but they would always be asleep somewhere, then I figured it was just my imagination until one day my mom brought up that there must be something wrong with her vision be cause she kept seeing a little shadow. Weird.

    I am actually a psychic medium,

    realized it when I was 9 and started having experiences. I like to read people's emotions, energy, auroras, and talk to spirits that I see everyday. Truly a incredible gift. I'm pretty open about it. I used to get more premonitions when I was younger but now its just what I...

    I don't believe in the paranormal,

    but I still find it interesting for cultural, psychological and scientific reasons, as well as it's entertainment values. It's a nice brain work-out to explain all the wierd stuff that happens to you.

    I've had a paranormal experience

    once in my bedroom at night. I was sleeping and my CD player randomly turned on and started playing, music. It scared the crap out of me and now I always leave it unplugged before bed.

    The definition of paranormal is "claimed

    occurrence of an event or perception without scientific explanation". As science progresses, paranormal things may be explained and become natural. For example, thunder and lightening were once paranormal, but are now accepted by everyone. Except for a few scams here and there...

    Okay, so I haven't posted a story in a while

    so I though I would give you all an update, or something. Everytime I'm home alone I get a really bad feeling about something and feel compelled to grab a knife in self-defence or something. I don't know the reason yet but I'm going to start looking into it because of my sixth...

    I don't know why people are

    so quick to assume there isn't more happening around us than what our limited senses expose to us. We have all seen our pets watching things that we can't see... babies do this as well. Their perception is different than ours. Maybe that's all that so-calked paranormal...

    it is only expected that I be drawn to the paranormal. I want to know what is real and what is myth. If you want to share anything, I am eager to learn.

    When I was a little girl,

    there were several occurrences where I told the adults around me about seeing things, hearing things, etc. Perhaps the eeriest one is that, all throughout my childhood, I had an imaginary older brother who was exactly 3 years older than me. (I say this because that's how little...

    who have passed. Most of the time in my dreams but it's them. I've had a few occasions where I've been visited by a spirit, mostly good, one out to be scary. It's all just so fascinating though! =D
