This may be nothing at all, but thought I would mention it. I think my experience,as posted by other members is posted on other threads here, but
anyway. The last for days, well this week, about 6 or more times now, I have been walking down the town, to work etc, minding my own business, when
out of the blue, I get the sensation/feeling of being hit in the face by cobweb, even when there are no trees or bushes etc about. But when I go to
brush them off my face nothing is there. Strange. Does this mean anything?
Well, to play devil's advocate I looked up some info on the spiders that drift with a tiny bit of web to carry them. I found that hunting spiders
hatch eggs in the fall (like wolf spiders and jumping spiders), while most others hatch in the spring. These baby spiders will spin a "gossamer"
thread that can carry them up to 10,000 feet, where they've been taken in samples from airplanes, and they can land on ships 200 miles out to sea.
They've been known to travel hundreds or thousands of miles... which I didn't know was even possible. So here we have one possibility - you clearly
wouldn't have to be around trees to get hit by one of these. There would probably be two times of the year where it should be most pronounced if
this is what you're experiencing. LINK to the page where I found this: ( www.colostate.edu...
Another possibilty that you're walking into a spirit or other energy. I found a little page of Rachel Keene's (
) that describes clairsentience, or the ability to sense emotions. In it she describes the cobwebby
feelings, and says it's not uncommon at all. She also mentioned that spirit will remove any methods of contact that may be upsetting if they are
asked to do so. Her comments are geared more toward understanding the differences in various abilities, in particular the ones associated with being a
medium. Not sure how you feel about that, so I also looked into a third possibility.
I found one comment on a discussion board that said the person had been having spontaneous cobwebby material sprout from their head, hands, and every
orifice of their body. This person was an energy healer and had been experiencing this for years. He said it was disturbing at first because he is
deathly afraid of spiders, and then he more or less accepted it. I don't know if I could ever accept that or not!
And then there's ectoplasm. I don't even like the word, since it was used so much in the Ghostbusters movies and sounds made-up. Apparently it may
be real though... I found this in and article on the "Untitled Paranormal Investigators" website ( upighosthunters.com...
"Today's paranormal society is beginning to look more and more into ectoplasm
once again. Ectoplasm could be the one thing that is able to transfer from the
spirit realm to the physical world, or this strange and skeptical substance could
be purely of human creation, some of which we may not even know we are creating."
So while there may be several explanations for what you're walking into, it might actually take another one to figure out exactly what it is. Those
baby spiders would be pretty hard to see, but there should be some trace of a thread left behind. If there's nothing at all, we need to rule out
something else by looking at it further. Have you noticed if it's happening at a certain time of the day? Is there a situation nearby that you might
need to pay particular attention to... maybe dark alleys, suspicious characters watching, etc? I've had my guides or someone get my attention by
giving me sort of a "watch out!" feeling right before I find myself in a weird situation... maybe your guides are trying to get your attention! We
can use the process of elimination to narrow it down more.
Have you had any further incidents of the cobwebby feelings since you posted on the thread? It seemed to be hitting you pretty regular, and I was just
wondering if that had stopped or not. If everything else I've suggested doesn't fit your particular experiences, I'll hit up some other threads on
ATS to see if anybody can provide more insight. Some folks on here might not think we paranormal posters are for real, but my experience so far is
that on many threads we ARE taken seriously, and it seems to be a haven for opening up and sharing your experiences without fear of ridicule. We'll
figure out what this is and try to get it stopped if you want.
