That is too bad If you knew your family history then that could explain it but since you dont know if your family are shamans then that makes it more interesting as tp why IT chose you. thanx for sharing.

Arn't we all?

I have no clue, but yet I do.

People tend to have misconceptions about what it is to be what it is we are.
In my normal day to day life, almost no one knows unless I tell them, which usually I end up doing at some point. Co-workers kind of need to know just in case "I am directed" to one of them to give them information.
Spirit works on its own timetables, and in its own way. Much of it is learning what is a sign and what is not.
Although spirit signs now seem pretty obvious to me anyways.
But still, I don't understand it.

Angels are cool. Actually, to me, they are scary.
When I was a teenager I had one appear in my living room, and he was so bright and shiny and overpoweringly "divine" that I freaked out and ran out of the house. That was the only angel I have seen, but I know they exist.
I've seen it myself, so it is a part of my reality.
I know a lot of people say they have guardian angels, and I don't doubt it one bit. I don't as far as I know. ok, never mind, I guess I do have one. lol
I have guides. Perhaps that is the same as a guardian angel, but I suspect it is not. As I was typing this and saying I don't have a guardian angel, it got pushed at me that I do too.....LOL

I have been reading here at ATS for a long time (mostly about UFO's) and didn't think much of the paranormal.

Untill today where my x-gf showed me a photo from new yers eve and told me a story too. I am making a thread today about it. It is an amazingly scary photo to say atleast.

I'm attracted to the Paranormal because I am noticing things happening that can't be explained by current science. I do not deny somethings existance just because someone can't see it or explain it. I like the challenge of investigating these things on my own. So far I can't explain them either so I guess they remain Paranormal. It beats living in a box.

I think I recently picked up a couple of spirit guides that are training me. I didn't necessarily want to be trained but they aren't going to let me off that easily. I don't know what these beings are. They could be angels or spirits, trees, mother earth, aliens, people from another dimension, or WiFi signals. If I ask a question, the answer usually comes to me even though I know nothing about it. Sometimes I spend days trying to find information to try to understand what they say but inevitably it is always right. Works better in nature away from power lines. Never saw any angels, fairies, or aliens(except for my son-in-law who is imported from Guatamala) so I guess I'm still legaly sane.

The paranormal has always been interesting to me. My mum always told me about her experiences throughout her life, and they intrigued me at a young age. Later in my life I began having my own experiences. I worked at an old theatre when I was a teenager. It was common knowledge in town that the original owner and projectionist killed himself in the projection room, so it was already an eerie place. The building and the ones surrounding it had underground tunnels and rooms that were used during the founding of the town. I had the opportunity of going down there and honestly, I could feel the history. We often heard footsteps up the stairs to the projection room, I had the free taxi phone slam down hard when I was there by myself, and my manager had some sightings. Among other things, it's just always been something that has interested me. I don't know if I really believe ghosts are "spirits", but that they could be from other dimensions. We don't know anything really so I'm kind of just waiting to see what happens after death.

"I'm kind of just waiting to see what happens after death"

I know how you feel. I believe everything will be explained as soon as you are dead.

I was living at Kirtland AFB when that happened

They shut down the base for 6 hours not letting anyone in or out... They passed it off by saying Russians were on base attempting espionage...

I remember a few nights before this happened a lot of wierd things happening, including a few OOB's .. Also a lot of power outages on the base in the nights prior to this incident..

A lot of odd paranormal things seemed to be going on during that time. Sandia Labs were also said to be working on alien tech then too...

1) What attracts you to the paranormal?
the mysterious storys of people and Universe

2) Have you always been a fan or did something trigger your intrest?
i think it triggered at young age, when i was 7-11 i watched some Horror movies like Poltergeist and sixth sense, maybe a bad age to watch it but it was my Mom favorite genre.

3) What is your favorite paranormal topic to study up on?

and of course no post would be complete without this last question

4) Have any good stories you would like to share?

Well only a small thing that happen to me...

when i was young at age of 10-12 i was sleeping at my Uncle and Aunt cabin and one night i saw a lady walking beside the bed, might be my Grand Grand mother who owned the house before. heard history's from my cousin about seeing face on the wall.

and 2 years ago at my Fathers cabin i heard something move upstairs (scrambling) while no one was home beside me.

Get into meditation and find out!

If you have guides guiding you, meditation could be a vital link to open better communication.

Now that I actually think about it, I really don't know. I've always had such a strong interest in science fiction/fantasy, and I guess part of it is similar to that; I just like to think about things that aren't (proven) real. I also like discovering, which is why I also have an interest in ancient civillisations and science. I just want to learn things that are strange, I want to work things out, solve problems, understand things.

But then I think, maybe none of this is real, and I just make it up to stimulate my mind. I've never had a paranormal experience myself, so.. maybe it is just my imagination. I can't be sure.

1) What attracts you to the paranormal?

A feeling of needing to know that claws at my insides on some days. I've always questioned perception and reality, and as of more recently I want to strive for learn more, to further understand what surrounds me. I feel there's a lot we cannot see, and I feel the basis of life is built up on a lie, and that aspects of the paranormal are more real than we could possibly ever imagine.

2) Have you always been a fan or did something trigger your interest?

I would have to say that it started with watching TV shows pertaining to what we cannot see - from UFO documentaries to shows about ghosts and spirits. Ancient Egypt was a topic I ignored until last year, and since it has propelled me towards dozens of different topics

3) What is your favorite paranormal topic to study up on?

I have become extremely interested in ancient cultures, science, mass, energy, matter, vibrations, indigo children, astral projection, star seeds, things of this nature. I am also heavily interested in the different dimensions and electromagnetic phenomenon like found in tests of crop circles in Avebury.

Pyramids and large monolithic structures in general. Ancient artifacts.

4) Have any good stories you would like to share?

Where I live there are old stories and legends of fairies that mimic human behaviour, voices and things like that to call you forth, where they supposedly can negatively or positively affect one's brain. They are said to be very mischievous and manipulative. There's one story of a girl that went missing for days, but where she had gone to it was only a couple of hours, according to what she told her parents.

When she had returned she had a large bump on her knee. Following surgery on the spot it was found that she had small sticks, pieces of moss and other things underneath the lumpy spot.

3 prominent UFO sightings consisted of very gold lights that could gauge themselves accordingly in brightness, would linger or move very strangely from left to right, sometimes disappearing in the clear sky then reappearing in another direction, they would almost shape shift, and one exited the scene as a shooting star we believe. Most recently I could have sworn that I saw a triangular UFO, but I'm starting to doubt myself there.

Another story consists of my friends. A seance was performed in one of my friends' basements, to which the curtains and blinds down there started to go absolutely crazy to the point where everybody ran. There were no opened windows or drafts that could have caused what was seen down there.

Why am I attracted to the paranormal? Because don't you believe there is more to life than what you see? I've experienced several paranormal things as well. I know something unexplained was going on. I seek some understanding and enjoy talking about it without ridicule.

I've already posted a ton of stuff in past threads and will not repost that here. What I will share is that I suddenly got shocked about 2 or 3 times tonight again while visiting a relative's house when I touched water in her house. I haven't had that happen to me in several months. I don't know if I'm charged up again or what it means. If there is a charge in the water coming out of the faucet, it makes you wonder why you don't get a shock touching anything else.

The other day at work, I could have sworn I remember someone's last name being different than what it is now. It is slightly altered and they indicate it has always been that way. I can chalk it up to not paying enough attention but it makes you wonder.
, the song Twilight Zone suddenly started playing on the radio station I'm listening to.
