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.

I've learn with the help of Sylvia Browne's books not to fear my dreams,years of reading helped me understand this one night. I found myself back at outside of the house I grew up in. At the end of the driveway stood my husband. I looked to his right and saw a woman walking down the sidewalk towards him. She wore a floral dress and she had long brown hair. I started my way down the driveway to stand by my husband. But, she got to him first. She looks right at me and said that she was going to take good care of him. He'll get what is coming to him. I woke up shaking. This of course upset me. But, I told myself I needed to talk with my husband right at that moment. Well, my husband works the grave yard shift in the city so I phoned his office and shared the dream to him. My husband is a great supporter on this stuff. He first laughed, but said that he knew who I was dreaming of and said he'll look out for her. Well a week or so later he told me that she, a co-worker had a new doo and is mad at him. So she was out to make him look bad at work. He said because I helped him out sooner he made sure that no harm was done to him.Since then my husband told me to contact him if anything like this ever happens, just let him know I'm covering his back.

Bonnie- wow, that is so amazing..i wish that i had a really good and experienced psychic teacher... i would love to do that.. you see i got this astral travel book from my grandma and i was doing the meditations and dream journals ( which by the way helped me to be able to remember my dreams every day now.) then i got to the letting my spirit leave my body and i get scared.. i think i need someone there that has had the experience before to guide me..I know i don't need to be scared the book said that but i can't help it... you know i was wondering that when we do do astral travel are we able to see our angels and loved one's or even G-D...

My heart goes out to all of you who have posted a comment. We will see our loved ones again. we are warned and watched over. astral travel can take you places.keep at it. write things down. orb are real. spirits there are plenty in hospitals.I hope sylvia remembers those who love her. and their lives are better because of her. she has given hope to the hopeless, and encouragement to those who need it. and gave us the wisdom to speak up. near death exp. reminds us we are still needed in this world. the after life is just the matter what know that people do care. bonnie

Since the age of 2, I saw the most magnificant loving...words can't express the feelings to this day what I still feel when thinking of the vision. I said it was "G-d" I was 2! Over the years, I've had 2 horrible experiences...all I can equate it with would be death...I've gone through agony when my brother was dying...not knowing he was passing at the time my pain/yet felt no pain/ started till it the time of his death. I knew when my Grandfather died...before he passed, I knew. I knew when I was pregnant before I was even late...and knew it was my precious girl. I honestly thought all people were like this...and was extremely shocked when people would do you know? I just knew. I feel pain a family member is going through and can actually feel I'm in the same room with her...I've been in accidents, then minutes later...they happen. I've seen my Brother...G-d rest his soul in my home 2 x's this past year. Once very unhappy...I changed what I was doing and thought of what he'd worked, he came back one more time with a pleased look on his face. and have been trying (in my dreams) to levitate...finally I did...went high into "space" (?) then say "angels" (?) surrounding this wall of brilliant white lights...I kept pushing myself up to it...held my hands up (like superman does) but higher and made contact. Oh my G-d, I didn't want to let go...I think the person I first saw at the age of 2 was holding it out to one else could touch it. The contact with this can not be described by anything I've ever experienced...nor possibly achieve in this life...Love, joy, utter peace, it was "completion" so everything and more anyone could imagine...I didn't want to let go. When I describe this, and show what I was doing, it's incredible...I feel the light, love and completion of life...only not as can never be intense as a human...this has no explanation...It was so beyond imagination...and will have it again one day...I pray.

I do astral travel all the time, I see things, and go places that man can not. I have been doing obe since I was seven and I am very good at it. I can go anywhere, see everything, and hear every secret. I can even track people who do obe, and follow them to see where they go. Its great.! I have met so many friends. I have been in the buddah temple in china where no american is allowed to go inside. there the high priest do a dance around a solid gold buddah, and disappear,the reappear around the statue, I joined in , thinking it was a game. and they encircled me. and I took off. but at least they know I was there. I like being able to go anywhere. I saw new planets being formed in space, and seen cures for diseases, and forever learning. especially now with metholology algorithms in biomedical clustering, using text mining. even the book and classes are free. so if you can do obe , use it for good, and not bad. even though strength comes in numbers. bonnie

I have had 2 profound experiences. At the age of 12 years, my grandmother came to me and told me she had passed and described what she would be wearing in her coffin. I told my mother she had passed. Within a few minutes, my aunt contacted my mom with the news grandmother had passed. When I arrived at the funeral home a day later, grandmother was wearing exactly what she told me she would be wearing. My other experience was about 5 years ago. I had a near death experience in the operating room. It was as though I was awake and could see everything going on from above. I could hear the conversation, but couldn't move my body that was on the table. There was an intensely bright light. This lasted a few minutes then I went back under. No one told me that I had coded and had to be resusitated, but in the medical report I got later it showed that I had done so. My father also came to me after he passed. How do I develop this?

On December 6 1989,at 4:30am, I experinced a dream like no other. I was in a parking lot of a department store, heading towards the store entrance when out of nowhere a man appeared in the parking lot and starting shooting at people, with a high powered rifle. I dove into a stranger's car and laid on the floor boards to try and avoid the bullets. The next thing I knew, I was awake and very upset, I explain to my husband what I had just dreamt, it took awhile for me to calm down and go back to sleep. I had a normal day that day at work and when I came home that night, I put the evening news on to watch while we ate dinner. It was then that my husband became a believer, when we heard that a man had gone into a University in Montreal that same day at 4:30pm (exactly 12 hours later) and shot and killed 14 women.... That dream has haunted me ever since... Teresa

I have had many experiences with the paranormal as well. I am so grateful to be able to understand them and have a place to come and learn more about it because as a young child I had been medicated into my teen years for depression and anxiety disorder. I no longer suffer from these illnesses and no longer take any meds. I am starting once again to reconnect to the spiritual side of myself and am no longer afraid I am crazy. I woke one night around 4 am because i heard what i thought was my mom calling me. She lives 3 hours away. I realized it was not her voice but the voice of my aunt who had passed away. She called my name twice and sounded desperate. I looked at the time and paused for a moment in disbelief and wonder. I waited and heard nothing more and went back to bed. The next day I heard that her daughter had lost custody of her children and so I called to make sure she was ok. Out of curiosity I asked what she had been doing around 4 am the night before. She went quite and asked me why I asked her that. I told her I was just curious. She told me she was contemplating suicide. I asked her if she was trying to talk to her mom. She began to cry and said yes. then asked how i knew.I told her that at 4am I heard her mom call my name twice and that she sounded distressed. She told me she asked her mom if she could hear her and asked if she killed herself they would be together. When I told her that I only heard her call my name but from the way she said my name I could tell she was very concerned and afraid. My cousin never committed suicide and got her kids back. I was happy to be able to give her the message that her mom was still with her and that she wanted her to live. Even if all I heard was her calling my name. Her daughter knew what it meant.
