My own kind of 'hag'

Posted by C on Wednesday, December 9, 2015, In : unusual experiences 
In an earlier post I mentioned that from an early age I didn't dare go to sleep in the dark without my face covered.

Psychologists would have a field day with me. 

Well I have many versions of the world-famous night 'hag' that I can relay to you.  You know the sleep paralysis combined with a visitor stalking you across the room, or pressure on you.

Mine is a little at odds with this though.

Mine has been lights and paralysis.  I have had sleep paralysis and versions of lucid dreaming since I was ...

Operatic Orbs

Stranger still

Once again going back many years, I was reading a certain book when on going to bed I had a very unusual experience.

In between dozing off, I opened my eyes - I know I opened them, and wasn't dreaming.  I saw a light shining above my pillow.  I thought to myself 'There is an orb over my pillow' (like you do!)

Instantly on recognising it, it had an affect on me, that I can only describe as hilarious.  It somehow incurred pressure on my throat.  It was also exponential.  As I watche...

I know what its like to be hung...shot...stabbed

(yeh...who am I kidding...)

the joys of being an empath

I'm going to tell you a strange story now.

Some years ago while I had M.E. and I was in the recovery-remit-relapse stage I used to often sleep during the afternoons (nothing too strange about that I hear you say)

Except for one day when I woke from a bad dream in which I was watching people being hung.  During the dream some I knew some people were guilty, some innocent and the way they were being hung reflected this (facing or away from the...

I see 'dead people'

Posted by C on Wednesday, December 9, 2015, In : unusual experiences 
...but do I really?

To start with I am going to say that I have absolutely NO idea why anyone would want to seek out such an experience.  I have been plagued with it for as long as I can remember.  I hated it all my life.

The amount of people I have met who say they wish they could see a ghost, or meet a loved one who has departed always astounds me.  Deeper still the fascination with all things otherworldly - in any format intrigues me.

Why Uncle Tom Cobbley would make such an effort - and the ...

Teen experiences

Posted by C on Thursday, August 27, 2015, In : unusual experiences 
Things began to change in my teens.  I started to get some episodes of being 'taken offline' - exhaustion would hit me apparently from nowhere.

What I didn't realise at the time was that my whole being was aiming for balance - I just didn't really know it on a conscious level.

As is usual for teenagers, with the encouragement of friends, I began to explore things like tea leaves, psychomantriums, etc., and found that we could produce some uncanny experiences.

I had detested school right from my ...

Childhood Experiences

Posted by C on Thursday, August 27, 2015, In : unusual experiences 
I was 'lucky' enough to grow up:

a) in a family that firstly didn't take themselves too seriously, so when all the females in the family referred to experiences with what was jokingly called 'the fluence' (highly intuitive coincidences) we observed, experienced but kept our feet on the ground
b) in a house that was a bit unusual
c) didn't particularly experience any harsh judgement about either of those experiences - either way 'they just were'

I will take each of those in turn.

My Grandmother (Mu...

One of the First Meditations I did

Posted by C on Monday, August 24, 2015, In : unusual experiences 
Not long after I started down the 'spiritual path' (and not long on the road to wellness) I had taken up yoga.  Well, more accurately, I had gone into WHSmiths with my Mum for 'an exercise video' to improve my health, and gone to the aerobics section and she had spent some time persuading me to get this yoga video I did not want, instead of the aerobics video I did want!
I was reluctant, but eventually I had taken up Iyengar yoga, and was practicing up to 3 times a week, when the teacher encou...

Wonderings on the Path


Musings on the path less ordinary.. Maybe I'm a synathene...some people would say I have empathic and highly sensitive, psychic or other abilities. Me? I keep an open mind - and maybe that's part of the picture...
