The 5 Most Common Paranormal Experiences
5 Most Common Paranormal Experiences Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures Paranormal experiences are actually far more normal than most of us think and believe. The prefix "para" means a lot of things simultaneously, but in the case of paranormal experiences, it refers to those experiences which are beyond normal human comprehension or even scientific explanation. Paranormal experiences happen to all types of people all over the world everyday. They have been and will always remain mysterious - sometimes even frightening for those that experience them. In general, humans are made uneasy by anything that challenges their well-set, mundane preconceptions. Let's take a closer look at some of the most commonly-reported paranormal experiences:

Astral Travel:

- Astral travel, or astral projection, is an experience that takes one's essence out of the physical body. This is often referred to as an "Out of Body" experience, or OBE. The essence of your existence, your causal body if you will, separates from your physical body and is set free to travel about. The speed of travel is lightning-fast and the furthest destinations can be reached in a fraction of a second.

- The destinations can also be quite obscure. There are those that report traveling to such places as the pedal of a flower or inside someone else's ear. Once there, they are able to observe and learn of events and facts that they could never have otherwise. Astral projection is also believed by many to be an experience that can be self-induced at will. A form of self-hypnosis is induced and the essence of your being is set free. Of course, spontaneous astral projection requires no catalyst and destinations are not predetermined by the individual. In such cases, it is believed that the causal body is on an unknown, but much needed journey.

Deathbed Messages:

- Many times, people who are the verge of death deliver their final messages to the living that may be near them. They want us to know that they are going to be alright when they pass. They try to offer us a final message of wisdom and something that we can smile about and be happy about when we think of them after their passing. They often come out of seemingly catatonic states to deliver these messages.

- Many times, these deathbed messages seem eerie to the survivors, even scaring them. We are all so perplexed throughout our lives as to what the afterlife holds. Deathbed messages give some understanding to what that may be.


- Ghosts, spirits, apparitions: they have been around us all for all of time - even if we do not "believe" in them. Ghosts are a part of all of our lives. Who can say that they haven't felt unseen eyes upon them? Who can be sure that certain happenings in their lives haven't been directly caused by spirits? Who can say that they have never told or listened to ghost stories with fascination and a wondering mind?

- Poltergeists and other spirit activities are not simply ghost stories told at camp firesides. They are proven, documented, even filmed real life experiences. They are uncommon in the Hollywood style, yet they still surround us always. People are most often too afraid to admit the possibility of a ghost presence near them. People fear what they do not understand. However, there are many who believe and swear by their own very personalized ghost stories.


- NDE, Near Death Experiences are one of the more commonly felt paranormal experiences. Commonly, they involve the individual being drawn towards a centralized, intense light source. They may describe feeling a "magnetic" pull into it. There are many who have been pronounced clinically braindead for several minutes before inexplicably springing back to life. There have been people that have set straight up in their beds after having been taken to a morgue.

- The experience of dying is only fully understood by those who have completed the process. Near death experiences are said to give most who have them a new and more profound understanding of life. They often emerge more appreciative and undergo dramatic personal transformations. They want to maximize the positivity of their remaining life after they have brushed the eternal.

Precognitive Dreams:

- There have been many psychologists throughout history that specialize in the interpretation of our dreams. A dream is the subconsciousness' movie theater. Dreams are said to hold much more power and meaning than they are commonly given credit for. Everyone has dreams, but precognitive dreams are another matter. Many times, people all over the would experience precognitive dreams that give them advance warnings of events that have yet to transpire. Sometimes, they are warnings. Sometimes, they are invitations. Other times, they are providers of information that the dreamers just shouldn't be privy to. There is great power in our dreams. We need to pay attention to them and try to remember them.

Paranormal experiences are quite normal indeed. People worldwide experience these types of events every day. Many people are gifted to be able to not shy away from these experiences. Instead, they embrace them and learn from them. The next time that you feel that you have had a paranormal experience, pay attention and try to decipher exactly what it is trying to tell you about.

You may learn something that is shockingly profound.

I've experienced 3 out of the five. I love it when I astral travel but I can't control it coming on, just when I know it's happening can I. When I was 4 or 5 I saw a blanket cover me when no one was doing it. A bad man saw it too and said it was his mom. My mother said that she was protecting me (for the most part) from her son. Also about the precognitive dreams, I don't think that I have them very often but before I conceived my son I dreamt about an eighteen year old teeling me his name and that he was going to buy me a guitar for my birthday. I deamt this early 2007 and conceived in June. I named my son after a music hall here where I live, with the first name of the kid in my dream, and boy, does my son love music at eight months old. He sings, dances, and just gets inquisitive eyes when he hears music. Thank you for reading this I appreciate it.

In 1999 I was seven months pregnant laying back on my bed,all of a sudden I watched a set of leggs walked past the foot of my bed and I was'nt scared but a little nervous because my great grandma passed away in 1996 and I still believe she's in my house,But as i was laying there I had a thought of me being at the top of the step and falling and geuss what happened?I had to go downstairs to answer the door and trip off the first step!I caught myself and fell back on the step!I was very upset about that and I did'nt understand that it came to me first before it actually happened.I dreamed a few years ago that my father and I was walking up the block to my house and people was on the other side of the street shooting at us but we just kept walking and did'nt get hit and I woke up to call my dad to tell him.A few months later someone tried to rob his bar and they shot him in the stomach,It was a hard time for us but he made it with the bullet still in him near his spine.I always dream about things and some of them actually happened.

I am not sure what I experienced as a child would be considered travel. When I was in the first 4 years of school, I would be sitting in my desk and all of a sudden I felt as soooooooooooo small in relation to everyone else in the room. It felt as if it were a dream and it continued to happen in the same way everytime. I have never heard of anyone else feeling this way and am wondering if I was looking from the outside in. I did not see everyone from above...I was still feeling as if I was in my body just felt as if I were really really tiny. Does anyone know what this could have been? I have not had it happen since I was a child.

I remember once when I was terribly sick I went out to a store. I felt this sudden fear. I turned to a littel girl and realized that I was actually feeling her fear. I told her it is okay to be affaid but there was no need for her to be. Was I actually feeling what she felt or was it my imagination.

I have been traveling since I was a child! At first I didn't know what it was and never told anyone about it for years! Sometimes I went to the same place over and over and others I have gone many places. At times, it scares me how fast I go from one place to another, but I figured out that I was looking at it the way I would on this side! Now it all makes sense!

I have 4 out of 5 also, I had the dream that came true, I had the NDE when I got my face smashed with a rock, the 1st time he hit me he killed me I saw the white light I was still at the other side looking down the tunnel super bright light at the end.The voice was telling me to get out he is going to kill you,then he hit me again then the warm blood running down my face woke my up I got out.Astral traveling over the tree tops then I looked at my hands & it threw me back into my body & I awoke.Ghost I was with my boy friend we were at the cabin where his G Father wanted to & did pass we were in their bed & when I got up to pee I could tell that someone was watching me, I stood at the door way & Jay said whats wrong? I said I dont know but it feels like someone is watching me. So I went then I jumped back into bed & thats when Jay told me that we where sleeping in their Grand parents room & bed. Then it made sense that his Grand Father was checking us out.There was a real chill to the air. Thanks so much for sharing. R Star

It wasn't that It wasn'tthat I wasn't raised with ethics. If anything they were too high. We don't "hate" we dislike~ Woman don't get mad~we overcome. Education and competative sports were the expectation of being born into the upper middle class. My childhood was what Fairy Tails were made of. GOD? Why "That's Santa ClaUSE~CORRECT? wHEN YOU ARE NAUGHTY HE BRINGS THAT BURNT COAL FROM FIRE? I experienced my N.D.E without knowing God. I majored in English and Factual Law. I wanted to save the underdog. I was taught and believed Science. I didn't dislike God. He was not factual.He couldn't forgive what I didn't know to ask for. There was no white light.It was like being stuck and unable to climb out. Sylvia spoke of such a place in one of her books. She knew the desolite limbo that our souls have to somehow fight and resurface from. Many don't make it. Does anyone else out there recal reading of this place. I have been on a Spiritual Rollor Coaster of reprogramming ever sinse. I can't be alone in this experience. Comments?

I had an experience that I haven't been able to understand and I hope if anyone who read it could sent me an explanation It was in October of last year my baby was 2 weeks old and it was about 2:20 in the morning I heard the lazyboy rocking in the living room that's what woke me up. I felt cool and agitated as someone got near so I closed my eyes, then I felt a heavy presence lying on top of me I felt colder and couldn't move so I started to pray and ask who ever was there to leave and I felt when the weight lifted fro me when I turned I saw a shadow walking away ( I had a night light on) I then turned to see the baby and I was holding him under my arm (baby was sleeping with me) and I never did that before. I then wondered if it could of been my brother. I wish I knew
