    Odd Visualization In The Sky?

    I was in the car, on my way home from school, when I was looking at the horizon (not completely at the clouds above but more like the corner of my eye) and I noticed these three pillars on top of the clouds. The shape sort of resembled columns and they blended into the clouds...

    In The Event I Should Disappear

    The past few weeks have been bad on the sleep front for me. I find it hard to fall asleep until early morning, despite being active all day. Two days ago my sleep came back, but I wish it hadn't. I'm not dreaming, and I'm waking up exhausted. And there's something in my room. We...

    A Coincidence? I Think Not.

    About 30 years ago my daughter's aunt was tragically killed while running in a cross walk by a motorcycle driven by an illegal immigrant who ran a red light. While there are other aspects of that tragedy which are not important to this story, within a month of her demise I...

    I was outside smoking with my husband

    Several, which I'd love an explanation for.

    When I was young, in school assembly, two friends each side of me, both sharing the same first name as myself, both fainted at the same time, leaving me in an empty space. Close dates with death, one I should have been swept out to sea after a huge wave engulfed me, when it...

    Pre-universal Existance

    One of my memories was absolutely beautiful. It was before the creation of the physical universe, the precursor to the "big bang." Angels existed, but nothing of physical matter did. I believe that we were all in God. God was everything before the universe, space, and time. The...

    I Hear Something You Can't Hear

    that I don't believe in ghosts, I am curious about the paranormal and have had strange experiences in the past, but nothing like what happened to me a few days ago. And even though I can't explain this story, I am sure that there's a rational explanation. I just don't know what...

    Yesterday, another strange thing happened

    and I just don't know what to think of it. It is really bizarre. I haven't told anyone about these incidents because I am a rational person and don't believe in the paranormal and to be honest, I think that they would think I'm crazy, (which I'm not!). I've seen ghost shows...
