Great story... and some of the responses are funny. I read folks saying "I'm an atheist, but I saw a ghost..." or "I'm not a believer. but this weird thing happened."

Well, I just wanna say paranormal stuff isn't reliant on religion ... though belief might amplify it... who really knows?

But it happens... and those wavering will never really commit until 'it' starts making noises one dark night... or they try living in a disturbed residence or date someone like the GF in the story, an "amplifier" as Darkblade noted... they exist and so does this stuff.

I'm not exactly sure why the denial runs so deep... likely due to our culture that thinks it's tamed nature and figured most stuff out... those of us SURE about the paranormal know there's still some work to do... heh.

really only if they knew how truly ignorant they are. I call them type of people educated fools,they think they so smart but actually so dumb. They say their atheist but seen a spirit u fool God is the almighty spirit actually he is something greater than a spirit. What I'm trying to say is God exists in another realm other than the physical which so do spirits.

The dynamic here is your vision. If what you call spirits only evade your vision, they can exist right next to you and you'd never know. This creation has to take on a form for you to see them. However, they can also appear in your dreams. Here you are not using your eyes at all to see, rather your minds eye.

It's just like you can't see bacteria unless you use a microscope. I don't think that most people would be prepared to do what it takes to be able to understand this more. I'm not talking about mediums and clairvoyants...that's just not the same. Contacting dead people, isn't possible. You can only contact an entity that takes on the image of the person the medium or whatever claims to contact.

As always, doing things the easy way brings faster results, but the wrong results and you will do harm to yourself/soul. Rather like a bank robber. Spending stolen money free an easy, but ultimately gets caught in the end. Whereas earning the same amount of money, may take a lot longer.

Hi OP. People who claim to experience events across numerous seemingly unrelated paranormal realms (UFOs, apparitions, cryptoids, astro-projection, telepathy etc), often report that earlier in their life they dabbled in paranormal/occult like practices. For example playing with ouija boards. Anything come to mind?


I've never heard this claim before and I'm pretty familiar with this general subject matter. On what do you base this claim that "People who claim...often report that earlier in their life they dabbled in paranormal/occult like practices"? What is occult-like? By the way, it's astral-projection not astro-projection.

My girlfriend at the time was a mysterious individual in terms of the paranormal, with personal experiences of her own and several 'abilities', for lack of a better term, that appeared to defy normalcy. The events only started when she began frequenting the place.

if true, theres your sign. Something in that house wanted your girl gone from that house. Ad after multiple attempts to drive her out failed, you too.

Either way, it got its way. Probably former occupant passed on and content to mind its own business until she moved in. Sometimes people who are sensitive attract them because spirits know they can reach them. Some times its prankster ish, others implicit. This was no joke.

The clattering drawer, slamming door thing was the best.

I experienced an array of poltergeist (for lack of a better term) phenomena. Two other people witnessed it, also, and both one of my dogs and a cat reacted to it. It was scary as hell. I concluded that it was connected to the place where I was living because I did not experience it before living there or after moving.

I think Tangerine was referring to Ouija boards. Most kids are exposed to them at some point. Thats what he's asking… if you remember that?

That makes a lot of sense. Yeah it's impossible to contact a person that passed away threw a Ouija board or something u dealing with jinn not a person that passed away. And a lot of jinn are evil. I never played with a Ouija board and I never will. I don't mess with tarot cards or palm reading all that falls into the category with the Ouija board. Btw these beings can't physically harm u just scare the # out u. Btw I agree with u seems like u know a lot about this subject.

I'm not the one who said it. I'm the one who asked what he meant. Anyway, if he answers, we'll find out.

How do you know these things for certain? I'm always skeptical when people talk with certainty about "the unknown".

I've had similar stuff happen in my house. I've been face to face with a ghost before and watched it vanish in front of me. I'm still living in the same house I've learned to live with it. As long as it don't attack me I'm fine with it. I try not to acknowledge it or anything.

Nope, it was beyond shoulderlength! May I ask what the question was related to? Curious!



I was thinking that you might have witnessed someone in an obe as the kitchen you mention, sort of rings a bell from one of my obe's in oz, though I was in Canada at the time

Thanks for the correction Tangerine. I think I've been saying astro all my life.

When I was really into studying UFO cases, mostly during the (whitely Strieber and Gulf Breeze days) it really piqued my interest that UFO witnesses kept mentioning that they started seeing UFOs only after involvement with things like ouija boards, séances, rituals, etc, and that they also now experienced other paranormal activity. If I remember specific cases that I can refer you to I will certainly let you know. It was a long time ago, sorry. Maybe someone else here recalls cases of this.

The OP made me recall a strange series of events related to my (then) partner a few decades ago. She seemed to be haunted by entities that bothered her at night. I would awaken to her sitting up in bed yelling at and swatting at things above her near the ceiling. This happened many times. At first I wondered if they were related to the location. We lived in a high rise apartment on the hill directly south of Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. I should mention that on two occasions I thought I could actually see a dark swirling "cloud" above the bed as she was yelling at them. She never had any memory of her actions at night with these things. This went on for almost two years before we moved out because we had bought a house.

The antagonizing spirits seemed to have followed her to the new house some 20 miles away from the old apartment. Again I would sometimes see her seemingly awake at night and yelling at these things.

One night I had been up very late after meditating for hours. She had been sleeping for hours. About 5 minutes after I had gone to bed I saw her sit up with her eyes wide open and she began to yell at and swat at these things above her. I had an idea. Earlier that day I had been reading a book that mentioned a technique for keeping away dark energies. The technique was basically to visualize a white light and to picture the white light expanding to encompass your body. The next step was to visualize expanding this white light and push out all the negative entities and energies. I think it even mentioned expanding it to encompass your house. So I lay there and begin to do this. At about the point where I had encompassed the entire house she angrily grabbed my arm and in an odd gruff voice said "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" A bit stunned I looked at her and said "What do you mean?" She said, again in a very strange voice, "You put something around the house." OMG!

I was completely freaked out at this point. I had never mentioned anything to her about the technique I just that day read about. It still gives me the creeps to even think about that event.

Take from that what you will. I still don't know what to make of that event. Obviously, something saw what I was doing in my mind. The implications are huge. I do believe there are many things around us that we may or may not have the ability to sense. Animals seem to be much more capable than we in this regard. Like the OP indicates, there are experiences that can be difficult to explain, and I have had quite few of them in my life. This one stands out though, because it wasn't just me. Somehow she was connected to one of my thoughts and clearly proved this with her precise remark. It's very hard for me to explain this away and it rates as one of the most remarkable experiences I have had, even though I have had many far more amazing ones from a personal perspective.

BTW, as usual the next morning she had no recollection of any of what happened.

I am just putting this out there for those who may be interested. Like the OP, I have no desire to prove anything. All I can do is tell you my true story. I've never been one to drink (alcohol) or do drugs. As amazing and incredible as this may seem, this really happened. Just thinking of it nearly makes me piss my pants as I almost did that night. I would love to have an explanation as to what happened that night.

Your story is more relevant than you realised when you shared it here.

When I mentioned earlier about her interest in all this subject matter and belief that she possessed certain connections with this unseen world, something she told me very early on in things that I'd almost forgotten, (well, had forgotten) and appears to be very similar to what you've just described.

She once told me, out of nowhere, that I 'was safe' from the things that she was struggling against in this unseen war. When I asked how, she explained to me this very same process of visualising the white sphere and using it as a barrier / safe zone, and told me that she kept it around me always, or something along those lines.

Thank you so much for sharing. Sounds like both the person you described, and the person I did, may have been participating the very same battles.

To be honest, I never really got to know my neighbours. You'd think, in the same house, you would. But beyond the occasional small talk at the clothes line, we didn't speak much at all. Certainly not to the point where I could ask them about ghosts in the house!

Probably just someone stuck in that area, or that house. When we die, we're still the same as we are alive, for quite some time ... we just don't have a body. There are discarnate entities everywhere, all the time. They like to feed on human fear, and lower frequency emotions. They hang out a lot in bars and similar places. They can actually use the energy of human fear to move physical objects.

The dead have all sorts of things to work out on the other side. The astral realms are so full now, compared to the early beginnings of life on earth. It used to be a peaceful place to go between lifetimes. Imagine the billions of people who have died, stuck in their ruts and lost.

I had a (dead) great aunt once who visited my house when I was 11 years old. She moved things, the dog 'saw' her, she was there for about a week before finally moving on. I did finally learn why she was there.

Sage is a great way to tell them to go away. Or just command them to leave, they have to.
