I just wondered if there's any lesser known paranormal stories as I tend to find myself reading about the same sort of thing over again, recycled in some way or another.

My account is unusual and lesser known. If you'd like to respond please do so within that thread.

When I was fourteen I camped out with a friend in a field, we were woken up between 2 and 3 by what sounded like dogs wailing outside. In a panic we sat up and listened, hoping they weren't rabid, or coyotes, or something along those lines. After a few minutes the cacophony settled and faded away.

So, we got courageous and opened the tent to step out and look for signs of wildlife. There was nothing in the near vicinity of the tent, so we grabbed our flashlights & coats, and started walking further away. As we reached the edge of the clearing we noticed that there were burnt foliage in small clumps around the field.

When we stopped to look closer we realized that shoe-prints had been recently burned into the hay and weeds and other ground debris. We got nervous and started to circle, using the flashlights to see if we could catch sight of anyone. We didn't though. So we returned to the tent.

It was at this point, after getting back in and starting to get ready to sleep again, that I began to feel the "bee-sting" sensation all over my body. Not light, easily-ignored stings either. They were intense, acute, burning stings. It hurt a lot, and my friend noticed so he grabbed his flashlight to look and see if some kind of insects had gotten into the tent.

He never told me what he saw when he scanned the flashlight over me. But I remember the look on his face before he clicked it off, told me not to move, turned it back on and did a double-take because whatever he had seen had gone away. I tried asking him what he had seen, but to this day he refuses to tell me.

Don't know if that is the type of paranormal story you're looking for, but, I don't know too many people who have similar stories.

I got a good one.

It's in a Reader's Digest book of the unknown (from the 80s, I think). I don't have the book with me so my details are from memory. I'm not sure when the story takes place though, probably around early 1900s.

A British woman went on an spiritual expedition to live among monks in the mountains of Tibet. After undergoing training for a few years, she learned about a spiritual technique where a true adept can create some kind of spiritual, souless being, sort've like an icon I guess.

So she went into seclusion for like six months to focus her energy on creating one of these entities. Eventually she succeeded, and the result was a shadowy monk figure. At first, he had very vague, dark details and only she could see him on occasion. She carried on her duties around the monastery and she would notice that, over time, the monk figure would appear more often and even walk beside her. It's figure would also develop into further detail over time.

At some point, a friend of hers came into her tent one day and asked about the monk sitting in the corner, meaning that now other people could recognize this being. Soon after, the monk started to become mischievious and troublesome, and even threatening. His figure was also far more developed, with some weird perminent grin on his face with deep, dark eyes.

She realized that she was losing control over this creation of hers, and decided that she had to do something about it. So she apparently spent another exhausting six months in seclusion just to destroy this entity.

Pretty creepy, eh? Wish I had to book near me so I could add more details...

Try this enormous site of treasures - especially the reincarnation stories I find fascinating:

I add one good reincarnation story here:

Reincarnation Series: Learning How to Forgive

Hang Ming

[] I know an
American who found out that he was a prime minister in the Ming Dynasty
in his previous life. He was very happy. He also shows a great
appreciation for traditional Chinese culture.

Recently, I received a call from a friend of his who told me that he
was not doing well both physically and emotionally. He wanted to see me
as soon as possible.

I canceled my other engagements with my clients and went to his home in
New Jersey. When my interpreter and I saw him, his was in poor physical
condition. His face was all red. When he walked, he huffed and puffed.
His hands trembled continuously.

He told me that his blood pressure was high. He had severe diabetes and
his blood sugar was uncontrollable. He could not understand why his
ex-wife was hurting him so much and his parents ignored him. He wanted
deep hypnosis to get to the bottom of his entanglement with others, so
that he could deal with his emotional stress.

I comforted him and suggested that he take a bath to relax before we proceeded with the hypnosis.

He went under the hypnosis really fast and he entered Great Britain during the 12th
century. He was a prince and had an older brother and a younger
brother. However, he was brought up by a clergyman in a castle far away
instead of in the palace. His guardian was very loving and sympathetic
toward him. The guardian took him all over the kingdom and all of
Europe, from one church to another. However, he was deeply aware that
he did not have caring from his own family. They had abandoned him
since his birth. He did not have the honor of being an aristocrat. As a
result, he grew up in depression. He harbored hatred toward his
relatives and he could not get into the palace even when he passed by
it. He could not understand the meaning of his birth or face his life
with a positive attitude and he felt worthless and disheartened.

In that lifetime, his only comfort was his guardian who was very
knowledgeable. He had a very close relationship with him. In his lonely
and hopeless life, he was guided toward a vast spiritual realm. With
spiritual sustenance, he later became a clergyman and an astronomer.

His guardian is also his younger brother in this lifetime. He is a
general and has accomplished quite a bit in the fields of the
strategies of war, arts, history, and literature. Besides, they are
very close and his brother has been very attentive to his needs, both
physically and emotionally.

The king who ignored his existence in the previous lifetime is also his
father in this life. His father let him grow up with grandparents in a
remote village. The same abandonment and aloofness from his father left
him with emotional scars. He has never experienced the love from a
father, so he could not forgive his father.

During the hypnosis, I told him, "You need to learn to forgive your
father and learn to be tolerant because every lifetime is an
opportunity for us to learn something new. Only by doing that, can your
soul mature and can you live a meaningful life. Revenge from one
lifetime to another will limit you and entrap you into a vicious and
never-ending cycle."

He also found out his involvement with his wife in a previous life.
They belonged to different parties and were political
enemies during the Roman Empire. Their relationship was filled with
distrust, jealousy, and slandering each other. Both of them suffered a
great deal. In this lifetime, they became man and wife, and the same
elements are displayed in their relationship with a lot of finger
pointing. Lifetime after lifetime, karma and retribution go on and on
with no end in sight.

Another interesting thing is that we found the cause of his poor
health. He belonged to the imperial nobility of Great Britain. Because
he was both wealthy and powerful, he did not cherish his life, wealth,
time, and health. He was a playboy and a homosexual, who also loved to
be a drag queen. What a waste of precious time and life!

His depraved lifestyle is the root cause of his poor health in this
lifetime. He showed remorse during the hypnosis that he had not
cherished his life, the precious time, and wealth. Thus, he did not
learn from life and his soul did not mature accordingly. Continuous
learning enables a soul to transcend. And, that is the meaning of life!

Close to the end of the session, he felt that he harbored deep
resentment toward his father and wife. His resentment is the root cause
of his emotional suffering. After he understood his many past lives, he
decided that he must forgive them and love them instead. He was
able to break away from his entrapment and elevate spiritually. When
there were no signs of resentment, feelings of injustice, and hatred in
his heart but understanding, love, and tranquility instead, all a
sudden, the gate of wisdom seemed to be wide open in front of him.

After the hypnosis, there were noticeable changes in his physical body:
His blood pressure returned to normal and his blood sugar decreased.
His face radiated peace and tranquility and he felt relaxed and
energetic. He told his friend, "It's incredible what hypnosis can do. I
am liberated and relaxed. Besides, I have learned how to love, forgive,
and be tolerant. I can feel the tremendous changes in my body."
