I am not really a believer, although I want to be. I skeptically watch haunting type shows on TV and try to figure out if there could be worldly
explanations to what people experience. It's very interesting to me, being a curious type. Being from a scientific background, I tend to try to
explain or rationalize things to death. However, over the past year or so, I have experienced a few things that really twist my brain, and almost
convince me that there is another side. Last Spring I had a friend and his family perish in a house fire. It was followed by quite a few experiences
that amounted to more than coincidence. There is a thread about it here.
Today, my wife was making the bed, and our wedding candle, on a table in our bedroom, just fell over. It has been there solidly for 16 years. In
fact it sticks to the metal plate that it sits on. It's a fat heavy candle, about 4" diameter and about 10" tall. There was zero reason for it to
fall over. My wife said she was making the bed, heard the bang, and went over to the table shocked to see the candle had fallen over to the right,
and it had moved a photo frame over a bit. The metal base plate had not moved. Directly behind the candle is a memoriam pamphlet from a local church
for a Mass for Remembrance for Bereaved Parents.
I went to check out the candle and put it onto the base in various ways to see if I could make it stand in an unstable manner on the metal base.
There was NO WAY this candle could have fallen over by vibration or walking around, or even a breeze. Windows are shut, it's Winter here, no fans,
the candle is at least 12 feet from where my wife was working and around a corner in the room. To knock the candle over requires quite a bit of force
and the wax sticks it to the base pretty well. Something knocked over that candle??!!
Here is a photo of the candle that fell over.
