Can you recall what animal the man's head was?
Adolescents (many anyway) are known for being emotionally high strung - but one does not need a troubled teen in the house to experience poltergeist activity. Whereas it's true that poltergeist phenomena seem to thrive in an emotionally charged environment,
Everything is spirit in some sense. Quantum physics has proven that all matter is trapped energy - hence spirit. Spirit manifestations tend to emanate from the mind - someone's mind, be it the mind of God, a teen, a toddler or any sentient being embodied or disembodied ... perhaps even animals.
In parapsychology, Nandor Fodor proposed that poltergeist disturbances were caused by human agents suffering from some form of emotional stress or tension. William G. Roll studied 116 different poltergeist cases and found that the agents were often children or teenagers, and supposed that recurrent neuronal discharges resulting in epileptic symptoms may cause recurrent spontaneous psychokinesis (RSPK), which would affect the person's surroundings. The case of the Rosenheim Poltergeist, where none of the disturbances could be explained via physical means, was suggested to be caused by psychokinetic forces.

It wasn't just a mere dream I had because I was traumatized and missing her. I just want to know if anyone knows what I am talking about with this experience.
from this thread www.abovetopsecret.com...
Entities you might meet in the astral
The first type of entity in the astral is of course humans (well their astral bodies at least). The second type is the formally human.. in other words ghosts. The next type are the elementals. entity's consisting of pure forms of the four element. The elementals are: sylphs - air salamanders - fire gnomes - earth nymphs or undines - water. The Devas - Are the angels, ascended masters, perfected humans, enlightened ones, gods and goddesses they go by many names depending on the culture. The next group are the artificial entities. Thought-forms formed unconsciously.

My grandmother was sitting at the kitchen table across from my aunt... a figure came out of the ceiling and hovered over my aunts head. It took the shape of my mother (her daughter) and had "grey eyes". My grandmother said the figures mouth wasnt moving but it told her it was going to kill her. Of course that was YEARS before she actually died so I doubt it had anything to do with her death....
I lived in a haunted house for about 12 years. The house was really old and did not have a bathroom in it so one had to be built in.
My first experience I remember my mom put me upstairs to go to bed. I sat up in bed for a while just feeling scared for no reason and then eventually I left the room and sat at the bottom of the stairs. There was a wall there so my parents could not see me and still thought I was in bed. I remember looking at the top of the stairs and seeing someone standing there looking at me. It was very strange. It was a mans body with an animals head. I was so scared I really couldn't do anything but stare. Eventually I just took off and found my parents and told them what I saw, but they were too messed up to really take me seriously.
When I was a teenager and finally had my own room, I was given the room that had the door to the stairway leading to the attic. I would often hear footsteps on those stairs, all different hours of the day. I wasn't scared though, I would actually talk to whatever the hell it was saying "Please stop and go away you're bothering me" which is what I was told to do. I don't really know if it helped, but it made me feel better.
I've woken up to see someone standing by my bed once. They were not looking at me. I was not really scared for some reason.
One very specific memory that did scare me, was the time something flew across my room. Something hanging on one wall flew all the way across the room and hit the other wall. Directly in front of me. It was so fast I couldn't see it in the air, yet such a loud impact that you were sure thats how it got there as opposed to just disappearing. The object was a small 4x4 piece of clear plastic that I carved for my printing class.
Here is my dream:
I'm standing on lawn, during the day, next to my mother. We're out by the mail box and there are several bags of trash in front of us. We say "what are we going to do with all of this?". Right away a red car pulls up and my grandmother gets out of the passenger seat. I don't know who is driving. My grandmother looks a little younger, not much though. She is carry mail in her hand. She walks up to my mother and hands her something that I don't know... then she turns to me and says "I only have one thing for ya" and she points at the sky right behind me with a smile on her face that expressed a happiness that I have truly never seen or witnessed before. I couldn't draw this facial expression and it has never been captured in a photograph. I'm telling you, this was not a happiness that anyone on this planet has experienced. I don't know how else to put it. I feel privileged to have ever witnessed this facial expression. Anyway, as i start to turn my head to look behind me i notice the gorgeous clear blue sky and the tips of the trees blowing in the light wind... and then I wake up. To this day I have no idea what she wanted to show me or what the one thing she had for me was.... but believe me or not, that was her and we were somewhere else. It wasn't just a mere dream I had because I was traumatized and missing her. I just want to know if anyone knows what I am talking about with this experience.
I went years without really experiencing anything paranormal. So much so that I almost forgot about my experiences. Recently I moved to PA and started working in a very old church. I mean this church is ancient. I worked there for a year and only one day did I really have a strange experience, but it was literally all day. I kept seeing different people that I knew were not there. One sitting at a table, one in the door way. Old fashion people. They were not there long.. but they were looking at me. I felt them looking at me before I saw them, actually.
I feel that, yes, there is something after death. It may not be what we're expecting but it's something.
