Hello everyone,

Usually, I hate it when people make long lists of surveyish questions with some cryptic, unstated motive for doing so; however, I myself find it necessary now to do just that. If you like, and if you have the time, please take a moment to answer some of these. I'll more than likely state my reasons later on, but perhaps not publicly.

If you like, just answer the questions with which you are comfortable, or those that apply to you. You can U2U me if you don't want others to see your responses; I'll happily respond in kind, and perhaps let you know a bit about why I'm asking these questions if it seems that you ought to know.

Thanks in advance for your responses. Trust me, I have my reasons for asking this.

1) Have you ever, as a child in particular but including more recently, had any contact with supernatural entities including but not limited to demons, angels, 'ghosts', or 'shadow people'? Did this encounter include sight only, or tactile, auditory, or olfactory sensations as well?

2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

Thanks again, guys. Once again, U2U me with any questions, or with responses you'd rather not post publicly, and I'll do my best to respond as soon as I can.

Thanks a lot,

Xenographer

NEE!

All right, inquiring minds and all......

1) Have you ever, as a child in particular but including more recently, had any contact with supernatural entities including but not limited to demons, angels, 'ghosts', or 'shadow people'? Did this encounter include sight only, or tactile, auditory, or olfactory sensations as well?

Yess. Wiothout a doubt. Pacific Grove California, October 1980. A shadowy figure in a perfectly "normal" house.... the room suddenly became 25-30 degrees cooler until you could see your breath...smell of an old attic or something closed for a long time

2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

No.

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

Yes. I was driving in Southern MO when suddenly one of my front tires blew out. I quickly began pulling off the road when a gasoline tanker traveling inn the lane beside me jacknifed, overturned and exploded-were it not for the tire, I would have be dead in the middle of it. Later, when I got back to my vehicle Police reports/ EMS fire rescue-a multi hour process-there was nothing wrong with my GMC Jimmy...no blown tire-nadda. I drove the rest of the wy to Louisiana without incident.

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?


Yes, but I don't think there is anything supernatural about it


5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

Somewhat, Christian, not all that much

6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?

Yes! I always know when the NASDAQ is about to go up! Seriously no and no family members

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

Other that raising my daughter right, not really.

1) Have you ever, as a child in particular but including more recently, had any contact with supernatural entities including but not limited to demons, angels, 'ghosts', or 'shadow people'? Did this encounter include sight only, or tactile, auditory, or olfactory sensations as well?

I have sensed and seen Pixies. I have only had one 'ghostly' experience, when I was poked playfully in the back one night. I believe this was the spirit of a young child who lived in the Victorian house I was renting. The room used to be the nursery.


2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

I have had spirit guides during my practice of the Lakota and Druidic traditions. These guides are not static and will stay only as long as needed for their lessons to be learned. My first was a wolf, the next a fox and the latest a crow


3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

In the year 2000 I should have died. I had serious heart failure and massive odoema. Breathing was almost impossible and I was told later that I was down to 10% oxygen (Apparently, a healthy person standing at the top of Everest receives 35%). My body was swollen to twice its size and the doctors had never seen anything like it. They gave me two days to live and were discussing a heart transplant at one point.
Why did I survive ? Because of KayEm's love and because I knew I have something to do. I believe I know what that is now, and fortunately it will take some years to complete



4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

Cornwall. The Highlands of Scotland. Woodlands.


5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

I am a pagan. I follow my own code and converse with many deities. These have included the Norse pantheon, Bes (the ancient Egyptian god), the Wiccan goddess and Jesus Christ.
My own conscience pricks me if I consider doing something that I know my heart is wrong. Seeing pain caused to any living creature saddens and angers me. Many times I have cried when seeing and sensing the pain of others. Should anyone hurt KayEm, I am uncomprising in my defence of her. Thats the only time I can cause pain to others and not be affected by it myself. Obviously my conscience finds that acceptable. Fortunately I have only had to do that once.



6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?

For a while I have had the ability to 'see souls' through peoples eyes. That is very wierd. Scary too when you can't find one ! I am also an adept at divination using cards and (up to a point) the runes.


7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

I think I know what I have to do. Actually, its something KayEm and myself were born to do together. I discovered it while convalescing after my hospital visit.

Ah, blast it... busted


Nah, there's a point. I've already discussed it via U2U with a few people, but I'm probably not going to post it publicly, as this board is full of people that would jump all over me for it.

Thanks for your answers, everyone... keep 'em coming, and feel free to U2U me with confidential answers, questions, or flames.

Thanks again

1) Yeah I'm pretty sure that I encountered a ghost(s) when I was around 10 when i visited that tourist O'keefe ranch in Kelowna. Very unnerved the whole time I was there, esp. near the cemetary and the family portraits. I also felt like there were people standing very closely behind me when I was in a certain room. There were people with me, but not that close.

2) Nope.

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

5) I am a Christian, and I go to Church every week. I can't say I'm very devout, because as a human I tend to go astray quite often, but I find that when I am sad or in a tough situation, God helps me up and if I pray to Him, it feels like a burden has been lifted off my shoulders. my faith gives me something to live for, I guess.

6) I'm not sure.

7) I'm not sure

Yes, but it was only with my family members who died, if that still counts.

2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

There are people who haven't?

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

Nope

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

You mean besides Disney World? OK, seriously, Yes.

5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

I'm Catholic, but I don't really like the Catholic practices and have basically "molded" my own faith with several other Christian ones. But I do believe in the Christian God.

6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?

Only with my family members or really close friends.

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

*ahem* HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!! Me?! Purpose in life?! HAHAHAHAHA!!... I mean... No.

Near death experience?

I once had a dream about 3AM that was so terrifying it woke me up. I saw a terrifying sight of a figure of death flying through the air and I felt like he was coming for me. He was descending down from the sky straight towards me


Anyway that scared me enough to start praying that I didn't want to go yet. I'm not sure but I thought almost half my life flashed in front of me, then the wall started shaking. (for real) It lasted for about a minute and was gone. A tornado had swooped down straight at our house and knocked off every branch overhanging the house and a 3 ft dia pine next to the end of the house at roof level. The pine looked like a gigantic tooth pick. Our house wasn't scratched.

Across the street, a very large pine (maybe 4 ft dia.) had been broken near the ground and turned upside down and stuck into the ground as if it was a gigantic toothpick. This was a full grown pine tree too.


I prefer not to answer the other questions.

Yes. Most, I have found normal explainations for, and thus, chalk off to those. But some I still cant figure out, and thus, my curiosity in this subject.

2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

Yes, as a child, and even as an adult. I have an explaination fo this as well. Its an extenmsion of my own mind, manifested into my relaity, that evolves as I grow older, but is forever a part of me. It is as real as the beer I sit here and drink, but real in a very different way.

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

I have many times. Im still trying to figure out how I bailed out all those times. Since i dont believe in gods in the normal sense, or divine destiny, Im still searching for answers here.

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?
Yes. I believe part of it is genetic memory. Part of it, also, i think certain places meld with certain "souls" and people seek these places out because part of them needs the "energy" or the memory of that place.

5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life? Not religious. I suppose u might say Im pagan, in the snse, I "worship" the laws of nature in all its forms, and pay them thier dues. I see gods as creative and poetic ways for humans to force with the eternal and all encompassing multidimensional reality that is nature/the multiverse. But i dont believe in specific doom and gloom gods that take direct action and interest into "mortal affairs".

6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?
Yes, despite my misanthropic nature, i do posses empathy and the ability to mentally place myself in many place, in many peoples shoes. I also have that basic universal human sixth sense, and a keen knack for judging people, though that is more through years of quiet observation, being on the outside looking in.

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?
I am meant to rule the world and enslave humanity for my amusement with my army of evil elves. Other than that, no i dont, im not that special.


Thanks again, guys. Once again, U2U me with any questions, or with responses you'd rather not post publicly, and I'll do my best to respond as soon as I can.

Thanks a lot,

Yes...several times as a child...

Imaginary friend: No...Spritual guide: Yes, the creator...


3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?


No...I haven't ( maybe a few out of body's as a child, but no near death's )...

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

Hmmm...don't know, always been drawn to the Scottish Highlands ( always thought is was my Scottish genes, among others that I have ), also to Nature ( atributed it to the Native American genes in me )...

5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

Yes...I believe in the creator...


6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?


No...I don't...unless you count intuition...

Do others in my family...hmmm...where can I go with this...

Yes...my great aunt was a Dark Witch ( I guess that is what you call them )...

Yes...my great, great grandfather could "see things" ( he fortold the 1940 flood in my area )...

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

Not before my daugher was born ( this will take some explaining, if you are willing to hear it )...

Edit...

So what is the point in all this ?

Very curious answers from posters.

1) Have you ever, as a child in particular but including more recently, had any contact with supernatural entities including but not limited to demons, angels, 'ghosts', or 'shadow people'? Did this encounter include sight only, or tactile, auditory, or olfactory sensations as well?

As a child I frequently saw my guardian angel. As an adult I have run into several ghosts. There were cold spots that could be felt, eerie fog or etheral movement, shadows. The dog would react very strongly when the ghosts would appear. That always tipped us off to the ghosts movement. This was in a house on Fort Sam Houston, officer's quarters. The history of the home had some tragic menage a trois thing happen in the early 20th century. Spooked everyone who visited overnight, especially me.



2) Have you ever had, or do you have now, an 'imaginary friend' (the term 'imaginary' is used lightly here; this includes but is not limited to the animal Spirit Guides of Native American lore) that seems to exist in greater detail than would a being of fancy or pure imagination?

My specific affinity has always been to trees, in particular, oaks. I believe they are living, conscious creatures, the same as I.

3) Have you ever had a near-death experience, or been in a situation in which you ought by all means to have died, but did not? What averted this situation?

No. But my husband and older brother have been yanked out of the reeper's hands right before my eyes. Each time that happened, I believe the intercessor was an angel of God.

4) Have you ever felt a peculiar, strong draw to a certain place for reasons of which you are not certain?

There was a Lutheran Church near where I attended college that pulled on me, often just to go inside and meditate. It was very peaceful, soothing. It was surrounded by great, huge oaks. Perhaps it was the oaks that drew me there. I don't know. I'm not Lutheran.

5) Are you a religious person? What faith do you follow, and how does it affect your daily life?

Death-bed Catholic, reformed, liberated in the 60's revolution, emancipated, free thinker who has found out God and Jesus are the most important facets of my life. It took a lot of doing things my way to get back to the real values I follow and hold deepest.

6) Are you, personally, possessed of any extrasensory abilities including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, strong empathy, aura sight, or an ability to discern psychic potential in others? Do others in your family, or any of your close friends, have any such abilities?

I have vivid dreams and premonitions. I heed them and listen carefully to the warnings, especially of danger. Just after I married, I demanded the keys to my spouse's car and told him he could never drive it again. I had just awoken from a dream in which his car went up in flames with him inside it. He respects my visions enough to take my warnings seriously. The times we haven't followed them, disaster has struck or we failed to invest in what turned out to be profitable ventures. I always know when the phone is going to ring and who will be calling. I have experimented with telepathy and have a unique ability to read cards, tarot or playing decks. No one I know has any psy abilities.

7) Have you ever, or do you now, feel a strong but indefinable sense of 'purpose' in your life, as though you are meant for some achievement the nature of which you are not certain? What is your 'gut feeling' about this sense of purpose, and what, if you had to guess, are you meant for?

Yes, I know the purpose for which I was born. I have achieved most of them, but there are several more things for me to accomplish in this lifetime and I know what they are.
