The 5 Most Common Paranormal Experiences
5 Most Common Paranormal Experiences 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.

At the age of about 13 i was at church camp. That night as we all went to bed in our cabin my friend got on my bottom bunk bed to sleep. We woke to kids screaming. I tried to get out of bed and like a wall surrounded my bunk. My friend tried to get out but couldnt either. A solid black figure that you could see right thru walked over to my bunk tried to reach in and couldnt get thru the clear wall. We held each other, prayed and read our bible thru the night with flashlights. Thur the night we could hear kids right next to us crying. At sun up we woke up to all the bunks in the room in a square away from the walls except mine. It was not moved. Kids said they saw black cloud come in front of them or over them. We were councled not to talk about it any more that boys had just tried to scare us by the adults at the camp. The next night while at services the cabin next to ours burned down. On return home, things started happening at home. My whole family would hear someone walking down the hall at night and stopping right outside my room. I started locking my bedroom at night. At chruch someone tried to cast a evil sprit out of me who didnt even know me. A old soul in the church stopped them and told them that evil was trying to enter my life, but it was not me. They kicked my sunday school teacher out of the chruch. Even today i sense something evil or black lurking near my life for 30 years. Have had psychis who dont even know me or my history refer to somethng that happend when I was 13. Minsters who dont know me say they have had messages that it is like a otopus who has his tenticals around me and it will release its hold slowly. Unsure if this has impacted my life. I have been told I have the gift of deserning spirts. I know I have a way of letting bad people into my life for some reason. I do get senses from people at times that something is not quiet right. Does anyone feel that this is a gift or a dark thing trying to be apart of my life. I havent had a easy life, things never work out for the best. love especially has gone wrong all my life.

My son died in 1995 and i had stayed with family for the first week.I did'nt want to go home since he had lived with me for a few months pior to his death and i knew how empty it would feel.I was pacing the floors asking Chad to please find a way to let me know he was okay and begging God to help him and me. the phone rang and as i looked at the caller ID to see who it was before i answered since i really was not up for a chat,i noticed all the numbers were 5's. I answered it and heard noises in the house [t.v.-fridge] but no voice.i thought this is a bad time for a joke but could not figure out the how the ID came up with the 5"s.all of a sudden i had a overwhelming feeling i knew who it was.I said...if this is who i think it is,i'm going to hang up now,please call me back. I waited a couple of minutes and nothing i'm walking away the phone rings-its the same number,all 5's.I answered it again and still no voice,just the noises inside the house again.i was stunned and thrilled at the same time.i was not sure what to say or do - i remember thinking is this really happening, is this to let me know he was okay. i said a couple of things then hung up. i thought i'd try calling the number back-if this was a joke the person that answered was going to hear about it. i tried the number how it showed,with a 1 in front in case it was long distance,everything came back No Such Number. I called the operater and told her what had happened and she tried the number out of the country even.her answer...THERE IS NO SUCH NUMBER ON THIS EARTH. i said thanks for the help,i know where it came from now. [wish i would have stayed on the phone longer!!]

In 1996 my grandmother passed away, 2 days before she died, while I was pregnant with my 2nd child, she told me I wasn't going to keep my child, there was something wrong with him and she took my hand and handed me something I couldn't see, but she told me to take it and keep it safe and when I needed it most it would be there to help me. I don't know what it was she gave me, I have always wondered what it was. I did lose my son at 5 months pregnant, all of his internal organs & brain were outside his body and he was poisoning me and making me very sick so the doctors took him. I named him Jesse. My grandmother was psychic and she had premonitions all the time. She told me I had this same gift, I have had several encounters with different things but I don't know what it was she gave me. Any ideas or thoughts form anyone out there as to what it may have been? Suzy

I've had a few dreams that had the most vivid colors in them. It was raining and the rain was a beautiful blue that sparkled. All the colors were beautiful,vivid and sparkly like diamonds. I also felt very comforted and warm in the dreams. PS...I am not on drugs...hahaha

When I was about 4 years old I woke up in the middle of the night to clearly see a little boy sitting at the end of my bed. It scared me so much I screamed for my mom and dad. At that very moment he disappeared. I still dont know who he was or what he wanted. If it happened now I would try to focus more as I would not be frightened. I feel guilt for screaming when he came to me still to this day.

I had a dream of my grandfather who past away many years ago. In this dream I was at my grandmothers door (I did not recognize the house tho) and she invited me in and told me to go sit on the sofa that there was something she wanted to show me. I sat down and from around the corner my grandfather appeared. He didnt look sickly at all altho he was about the same age as when he past, about 67 years old. Anyway, I couldn't believe it. I ran over to him and hugged him then we both sat down on the sofa. I knew in my dream he was dead. So did he. We talked for awhile which sad to say i can not remember what we talked about, but then my grandmother told my grandfather that I was a nurse now. He stated "I always knew she would be". Then he told me he had to leave now and he got up and walked to an opening under the staircase and layed down at which time my grandmother started putting handcuffs on his wrists and his ankles. My grandfather then stated "Now Arlene, the last time you did this you put them on to tight. Don't put them on so tight". At this point i remember thinking to myself Hmmm she has done this before. Then I woke up. Can you tell me what this meant? I feel it was really him. K.Adams

I've had precognitive dreams before but the one I remember the most was when I dreamed about my first son. I had been trying to get pregnant for four years. I took teas, home remedies and was taking fetility pills. Then one night I dreamed I was driving into my mothers driveway ( wish wasn't speaking to me for four years at the time)when I got off the car I walked across the lawn and sitting in the neighbors steps was a lady dressed in white with something baby blue over her shoulders and a rope tied around her waist. She had her elbows on her knees and she was holding a baby. I started to walk towards her and when she turned around I asked if it was my baby nd she nodded yes. The baby was very alert looking everywhere, he didn't cry and had black curly hair. A month later I found out I was expecting and when my son was born he looked just as I had dream, He was alert, looking everywhere with black curly hair

I know I've had precognative dreams several times. Before I was pregnant for the second time I dreamt about a little girl about 4 years old with long blonde hair. My daughter is now 4 years old with long blonde hair.

There are such things of Ghost. I had a dream that something was covering my mouth and holding me down next thing I know it was really happening to me. I woke up to something holding my mouth so I couldN't yell and something holding me down so that I couldn't move. All I could do is say the lords prayer over and over in my mind until the Ghost got off of me. I yelled for help and the person I yelled for told me to wait so the Ghost pined me down again and help my mouth so I couldn't yell again. I said the lord prayer over and over angain until it stoped. This time it got off of me I stood up and walked out of my room. I have more stories.
