I've had paranormal experiences all my life from having live in ghosts, phantoms in my room, dreaming the future (mostly mundane, but not always), knowing things I just shouldn't know about people (reading everyone at least on surface), bi-locating, inducing mystical experiences from a lifetime of having them happen, talking with the dead, full on conversations in dreams so no proof there, but it's like I know when a dream is not a dream, but is just astral work, demonic attacks etc, so yeh, you are not alone.
I have some more experiences that I just don't talk to others about anymore, but I think anyone can experience this side of reality, but most don't want to, and that is ok too.

Had a few strange things happen with the occult. Once a friend and I were going to draw a pentagram and have a séance and I was looking through the encyclopedia and found a picture. I marked the page and also wrote down the page number and left to get some paper to draw on. It disappeared. Could never find it after that.
The same night I saw the pentagram, while in bed, I swear that the devil appeared and said "you're mine now" and disappeared in a puff of smoke. I screamed and my Mom came in the room and turned on the light. You could still see the smoke. Never dabbled in the occult after that.
I have a few more but this is a good start. Your threads were one of the reasons I started coming to ATS.

I just found this thread, and I will contribute more extensively to it at another time as I have to get ready for bed, but I have lived in haunted houses since I was born, each and every place we lived in minus one here and there, were haunted. Having gained quite the interest in the paranormal due to this type of childhood, I became a ghost hunter, forming investigative groups of my own, which spawned investigators and lecturers known from popular television shows about the paranormal, and in these investigations, my group and I encountered a few authentic hauntings, ghosts, shadow people, inhumans (demon) and the like.
Not all hauntings are "ghost" related, but there is plenty of evidence to suggest that some of them certainly are, my goal has always been to determine if the group feels the home is indeed haunted, and then to decide the nature of the haunting.
Ghosts, or the paranormal are real, the only question in my mind is: "What are they?" "Are they the spirits of the deceased?" "Are they Psychical in nature?" "Are they interdimensional, or demonic?" Unfortunately though, the answers to these questions may never be discovered.
Now that I've rambled, I need to go to bed before my wife hits me with something heavy.
