SparkPeople Paranormal Believers Of Ghosts and Hauntings Team Messageboard If you've had paranormal experiences and need a place to share them, then join our team. In our GENERAL CHAT THREAD we also share ideas and help each other on everyday life issues . SparkPeople Paranormal Believers Of Ghosts and Hauntings Team Messageboard Newbie Hello, <BR> I believe and also think I have had several events. Looking forward to being part of this group Sun, 3 Jan 2021 10:39:24 EST Randonautica? Has anyone ever heard of the app Randonautica? My daughter just came out talking about it, it is kind of interesting and apparently some interesting stories behind it such as people using it and finding some paranormal events, strange animal encounters, even finding a body. It is kind of like geocaching but you don’t get a little stamp after finding it. I downloaded the app and we are going to check it out for the fun of it. Mon, 22 Jun 2020 22:29:13 EST Demon in Our Guamanian Home I was in the Air Force stationed in Guam living on the base with my family. <BR> <BR> Our neighbor had a young son who was being visited by an attention-seeking spirit. She told us during a visit to her home, that her son's toys would play on their own, batteries or not. During the visit while sharing this information, our conversation was interrupted by a talking Goofy in her son's room. We went to his bedroom and she showed us the Goofy without the batteries. Then she placed the batteries ... Thu, 7 Jun 2018 06:37:49 EST Paranormal? When I was young, we'd visit my Aunt and Uncle's home in Astoria, Oregon. The upstairs room I'd stay in had two storage closets, one on each side of the room. The storage areas gave me the creeps. Of course, one of the things I did was to check inside each one just to lessen my fears. But I'd wake sometimes to a 'HEY!" Lying on my side, I'd open my eyes just to see the storage door. I knew SOMETHING was wrong, but didn't dare ask. <BR> <BR> Years later, I discovered my aunt during those days... Sat, 7 Apr 2018 09:18:42 EST Clairvoyant or Sensitive? When young, I knew I was more plugged in to the spiritual things happening around me. I could sense paranormal activity. After becoming an adult, I gave my life to Christ. By doing so, He blessed/cursed me with the spiritual gift of discernment. <BR> <BR> The problem is I don't know how to turn it off or on. I now see spirits in how they choose to manifest to others. <BR> <BR> I've had some serious battles with evil. <BR> <BR> I was asked to join a paranormal team, but declined. I know th...

My mother passed away last December... <BR> <BR> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 13:09:24 EST Enlightenment and Metaphysical Influences In response to a request from a couple of the team members I checked out how the term The Enlightenment applies to European and American history. The following was copied from the History Channel website (credit is in the text) and gives a good summary. If others are interested I will add to this with comments about The Masons and other non-traditional organizations.

And there on the counter was a saucer but no cup.I thought maybe my boyfriend had put it there.When I showed my boyfriend my phone beeped and siri came on,my phone was in its case nothing was touching it and there was a reference about the theater Its bone china with flowers around the edge. Have no ide... Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:12:07 EST I need a good resource I was hoping that some of you could offer some credible resources to learn more about different paranormal aspects. For instance, different types of entities, the different types of "gifts" people have that are sensitive to the paranormal, and things like that. <BR> TYIA! <BR> <em>423</em> <BR> Sun, 18 Oct 2015 11:38:37 EST Question Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any idea as to why the street light turns off every time I turn into work in the morning? Doesn't seem to matter what time in the morning I come into work? <BR> <BR> Thanks, Michelle Fri, 2 Oct 2015 15:04:17 EST Shocked and surprised The spirits that are in my house have been sorta busy. Have some items that have gone <BR> missing. And they have shared music from a music box again. But last night I had a surprise I never thought would happen. I saw an orb (sorry was not sure how to spell). It went back and forth in front of me then dissapeared. It happened in the dining room. All the curtains were closed and there is nothing to reflect anything.Still trying to wrap my mind around what I saw. Am really hoping they were jus...

Looks victorian in style. My boyfriend was trying to hook it around my neck when the chain broke. I layed it aside and some laundry was placed on top of it. Yesterday I was putting things away and saw my chocker. Upon picking it up I noticed it had been repaired. I asked my boyfriend if he had done it, he hadn't. I said thank you hoping whoever fixed it heard me. Our house was bulit in 1890. I know there are 2 little girls and a man and there is also a la...

But I have never found anyone who could regress me. Still, I have information on some of my past lives and this has helped me cope with or work through some issues in this life - and explain why some of my experiences happened. <BR> <BR> In some cases people I regressed were with me in past lives so my information was included in their lifetimes....

I have a massive amount of weight to lose so i'm aiming at 50 lbs. per time as a goal. I have struggled with staying commited to any program and came across sparkpeople while doing an internet search. I'm hoping to meet fun, supportive people who have the same goals as myself. So far i'm liking the website however i'm sure i'm not understanding the entire thing and all the benefits it has to offer so any suggestions and tips would be appreciated ! Sat, 13 Dec 2014 10:53:57 EST New Challenge ?? Hi Everyone, hope you are all doing well. <BR> <BR> In an effort to get back on track I have decided to join in a work challenge called "Wintober". The challenge is simple starting on Oct 1 thru to Oct 31 we are to track daily our amount of walking we have done each day, then they will total all the people here at our VA against other VA's. <BR> <BR> So I thought why not see if anyone is interested in posting daily how many MINUTES you walked and then total at the end of the month to see... Mon, 29 Sep 2014 15:06:07 EST Has anyone heard from our Copper ? Hi all. I've been bogged down with work and dead dog tired when I get home. But starting at the beginning of summer ,I have dedicated 1 hour each day to my Emma with a work in the woods in the hopes of getting some weight off of her. I think it is working , not doing anything for me but she doesn't look so much like a coffee table as her vet says. <BR> <BR> I have been trying to work on some of my knitting but it's slow going right now. I actually fell asleep with my work in my lap last nigh... Sat, 19 Jul 2014 12:53:55 EST ghost hunting I will be investigating Fort William Henry in Lake George, N.Y, this coming Friday the 27th.

My name's Susan, and I thought this would be a fascinating team to look into. I recall some odd experiences after my father died; one night at Mom's house (I was staying there for a few days), and shortly after he had died, there were a number of electrical and battery glitches - two clocks simultaneously stopped that evening and the dome light in my mother's car mysteriously went on, all by itself. If only one of these events had happened in isolation, I don't think I would've given it a s...

Haven't been on spark for awhile or posted anything for a bit but thought you all might find these two incidences amusing and interesting. First was when I purchased new bedroom furniture. I had moved all the old stuff out and was cleaning up when I heard a voice say "We're here..." So I look out my window fully expected to see my husband and son bringing the furniture. No one was there. I finish cleaning up and go into the bathroom to splash water on my face and again I hear a say... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 08:47:20 EST Dopleganger? This happened to me in the 80's. Ray and I had moved and had two baby boys and a cat named Leopold. <BR> <BR> One night Ray let Leopold outside (which was against my wishes, he wasn't use to city traffic). The worst happened and Leopold got hit by a car and died. I fell apart. I loved that old cat and I couldn't stop crying. <BR> <BR> I was angry at Ray so I stayed on the couch that night. I say stayed, because I didn't get one wink of sleep. Around 6 AM I heard Ray's alarm clock go off. ... Mon, 3 Sep 2012 16:14:07 EST Glad to be here. My name is Michele.

I guess I should start by saying I've seen this 'shadow person' on and off since I was a baby in the crib. That was the first scary memory I have. I woke up, and this shadow person was standing in my room just watching me. At the time I thought it was my mom but it never moved and just kept staring. There were no ... Thu, 23 Feb 2012 22:20:30 EST Not sure what to think So, the other morning I woke up, the room was mostly dark as it always is, but I looked up and about a foot above my head I could see a monarch butterfly just fluttering around. It was so clear, I just stared at it for maybe 10-15 seconds, expecting it was just part of a dream that maybe I wasn't fully woken up from but when it was still there I reached up to touch it, to see if it was real and my hand went right through it. It fluttered for a few more seconds and then dissipated. I've never ... Wed, 23 Nov 2011 19:38:17 EST SO RANDOM!!

A guy I work with was in it and he was writing me text/emails about how he liked me and wanted to be with me. I will admit I did like him at one point, but that was a long time ago. Before I went to bed I didn't think of him, didn't read anything romantic or watch for that matter, didn't think of work, or anything else like that which would have bled over into the dream.

I'm a very committed Weighter Watcher currently, and I was intrigued to see this Spark Team, as observing paranormal occurences is a minor hobby of mine, you might say. I watch all the 'ghostly' shows on TV that I can find, and I have observed many odd things over the 22 years that I've lived in my 130-yr old home.

Wed, 5 May 2010 10:49:54 EST Things Started To Change When I experienced my fourth encounter, things began to get a little creepy. After my last encounter I realized as a young child, that there was something in the dark that wanted me for its own. My first encounters were associated with lights and flying objects, but now something was happening that was altogether different. And it began to scare me. <BR> <BR> I was about twelve years old, and once again I had just lied down to sleep. My television set was situated in the corner of my room...... Sat, 17 Apr 2010 07:28:22 EST My Second and Third Encounter I was about eight or nine years old at the time, when I encountered lighted orbs (as they are called today). It was late at night, and my mother and father were in bed. I was thirsty and got out of bed for a drink of water. As I walked slowly to the kitchen sink, I suddenly saw a white ball or orb, passing the kitchen window. Then another one proceeded to float by...right in front of me. I was frightened and jumped back into bed, covering my head with my blankets. The next day, I told my moth... Sat, 17 Apr 2010 07:20:45 EST Supernatural Happenings I thought for years, about all the mental and physical abuse I suffered at the hands of my father. Did I begin experiencing these strange apparitions in my childhood because of the inner fears that were created by my fathers constant intimation toward me? Some people would answer that question with a "yes". But for me, I'm really not sure if that's really the right answer. I could possibly see a connection with horrific dreams and mental abuse, but the other images I saw were real, for I was ...

Both are not the friendly type and I have picked up on some complicity between them. The one in me has been there since I was a child, likely caused by a verbally abusive father that even left bruises on occasion when I was an older child. A bad group of friends after high school...

I was just wondering if anyone else reads tarot or works with dream as their personal therapy. I get amazing insight and wondered if others have had the same experience. <em>213</em> Sun, 31 Jan 2010 13:47:33 EST when did you discover you could see spirits? The first I knew that I was seeing spirits was when I was 4. They kept talking to me and I was getting annoyed. So I put my stuffed animals in a handled brown paper bag and dragged it two blocks to my grandmother's house and told her I wanted to live with her. She asked me if my dad was being mean to me and I told her no that there were too many people living at my house and I couldn't sleep. She sat me down and explained what I was seeing and hearing and I never have been upset or frighte... Fri, 29 Jan 2010 10:54:54 EST What Paranormal Activity Have You Witnessed? I've seen it all I do believe. Voices, dancing lights, shadow people, full apparations. Phantom scents. I get an 'alert' when I'm coming up on a cemetery when I'm driving, especially in an unfamiliar area. Kind of like the folks there sending signals to say HEY WE KNOW YOU CAN SENSE US HELLO WE'RE HERE! Used to scare me, now it's normal to me. Sun, 3 Jan 2010 11:55:26 EST I'mmmm Baaaaack!!!!

My Husband was showing me in my Daughter's room that he put a Bow on her Moniitor for her new Computer. <BR> <BR> He looked & said, "How did the Television get on??" I dont know. It wasn't on, he explained. Okay, enough to make the hair stand on the back of my neck. <BR> <BR> We checked the closet (because I didn't have my Super blankue with me & he had to check it).

They're longer than the usual route, but so idyllic. <BR> <BR> I've been down this road several times. It's BEAUTIFUL! Thursday, it was very dreary & blustery. As I came up & around a bend in this road there was a sudden gust of wind & I had a very strange sensation.

Sun, 15 Nov 2009 21:04:36 EST My own odd experience But by now means the only "odd" experience I've ever had. Those others, sensations of someone standing near me, hearing my mother call my name so clearly it was as if she was in the other room (& I kid you not, later when I tell her the date & time she says she was thinking of me - nothing bad, normal stuff like "Did she pass that exam?" or "What will she be cooking for dinner." <BR> <BR> OK - the other thing, my mom is convinced I have ESP or a 6th sense or something like this.

There are a great many examples of individuals successfully contacting what at first appear to be "ni... Tue, 3 Jul 2007 20:36:35 EST Gettysburg Mary...
