They can't help that they see things we can't! I bet if they could talk they would have some interesting stories to tell.

Yep, animals can sense a lot of things we can't and can probably see a lot of things the normal human eye can't.

Although I do have 2 cats, I've never seen them looking at some empty wall intently as if somethings there, they usually just tend to look outside the windows and watch for hours on end as if its their television.

Anyways, I've had quite a few instances of sleep paralysis in the past. I don't think instances of sleep paraylsis necessarily indicate something paranormal and could be Just our imaginations, but the experiences I've had with it are still really, really creepy.

For instance, 4 years ago:it was just another normal night as I fell asleep. Only to wake up early in the morning completely immobile. Other than my eyes being able to look around, my body was downright frozen and it felt terrifying. However, that wasn't the worst part. I felt something cold and bony grip my shoulder, the physical sensations felt very, very real.

I looked at whatever was grabbing my shoulder and I regret looking at it to this day. There it was, very a skinny, old, long and wrinkly hand with exra long and sharp nails holding on to my shoulder. Next thing after I looked at it, I clearly heard what sounded like a deep elderly woman whisper into my ear with a demonic voice, followed by laughter. I wasn't able to make out what it said as it was either gibberish or I was too scared to comprehend it, but it felt very evil no doubt, especially due to that laughter at the end.

I eventually broke free of the sleep paralysis and looked around but nothing was there. This was NOT a dream, it was most definetly happening as I was awake.

That sounds similar to one I had a while back. Except instead of a woman it was a man and he was breathing heavy and trying to choke me. It was scary because I called out and my husband woke up and saw it too. Him waking must have scared it off because he saw the thing one other time in the hall and yelled at it to leave. It hasn't appeared since.

I do not envy people who have experienced sleep paralysis. Given that paralysis typically happens during the period of sleep that dreaming occurs as a defense mechanism, I've always assumed (and probably read somewhere) that things people see may often be hallucinations of a partly still-dreaming mind, but even so it sounds scary as hell. (Not suggesting that's necessarily the case for you guys. Though it sounds scary enough I think I'd be hoping it was if something like that happened to me. )

I can kind of see how dreams and the real world can end up mixed together in ways though... Thank god no sleep paralysis here, though occasionally, if my tv is on, things I'm hearing from the tv will end up as part of a dream, and can turn out really weird. Plus the time many years ago that I'd drooled all over my hand and dreamed that my hand was cold and bloody. (Then woke up startled for a moment because it still felt that way. lol)



Anyway, on the topic of paranormal... Recalled that my mom has always told one that's kind of fits right into a stereotypical book of spooky stories. She'd appanetly once clear as day heard someone knock on the front door. Nobody there. It was winter, with snow on the ground...and no foot prints. Supposedly happened when I was a young kid, but I don't recall the event. I'm kind of torn between maybe she didn't tell me until years later as to not scare me...or did she dream it. She swears it happened.


Also a handful of years ago my mom, I guess kind of in her peripheral vision, had seen a dark colored cat walk through part of the dining room. She looked toward it and... no cat. She asked my dad who was then also confused because he'd seen it too.

If it was one of our former cats then I doubt it was the one I'd mentioned before since he was about equal portions black and white, but another we'd lost some years before him (and was his buddy for a while) was a dark gray tabby.

I was into that stuff for a while too; astrophysics truly is the practice of pulling things out of one's ass, in the most scientific way possible way.

Re: ghosts. I read a thought provoking article once about a correlation between ghost sightings and faulty wiring. The theory is that magnetic fields generated by badly insulated electrical cable may be able to mess with your brain's electrical activity. That may explain why people tend to see ghosts in old buildings. Is it because people died in those places, or because the wiring is old and crappy?

Yet this does not explain sightings in cemetaries parks and other places with no electrical wiring at all....

something a little weird.....

watching the ghost adventures marathon. dog starts whining in another room. go up and she's staring blankly at the wall ceiling and it kind of freeks me out a bit so i give her a treat to distract her. she did that once before at 2AM. stared at the wall and moved her head back and forth like she was following something.

a little after that, i felt a cold chill pass by...and i'm in a room with no windows.

Just another odd experience no one will believe, so i usually keep them to myself: )

What a unique experience, not cliched and made up at all.

As I said, animals tend to sense things and see things that we don't see or sense. Sounds like a pretty freaky thing.

two odd occurances.

father jokingly mentioned ghosts while sitting on the front porch. he saw the shadows of people walking, but the people walking hadn't come into view yet. i turn my gae back and we BOTH notice the side of my sleeve flip up in a very weird angle, stay there for a second, and flip back down. I wasn't moving my arm, and there was no wind and he noticed it first. which is odd cause he doesn't believe in ghosts. it was like someone was tugging at my shirt sleeve.


second thing happened today. over by my neighbors house. all of a sudden her shut door opens itself, stopping conversation on a dot. we didn't notice if the door was shut all the way like the door next to it, or if it was just loosely cloosed and wind blew it open, but there was a charge in the air in how the conversation suddenly hushed up and all three heads turned to notice this door slowly open by itself.

So, I would put that under odd occurrence.
