    I notice that this is a topic that black people do not like to talk about for the most part. I can understand why to a certain extent (people dont want to be thought of as nut cases) however mostly everyone I know has had an experience on some level or another (including myself) and are mostly reluctant to talk about it. I wonder why. This stuff happens more than often. So my question is have any of you had an experience or thoughts on the topic that you would like to share. Why or why dont you believe, what do you think is the cause of these "paranormal events" and I most definitely want to read personal experiences.

    I do not believe in such things, but sometimes I get the feeling I have already seen something in my mind when the actual event is taking place and I ask myself "mmm this looks familiar". Weird to explain, i dont know if that is deja vu.

    peace

    I don't mind talking about it as i have become comfortable with the one's i see and they have obviously become comfortable with me as they used to flee when i would awake, but now they don't even move. One of them last night when i felt it's presence was chilling over by the tv in a red sweat suit and ball cap waving at me as i peaked from under my quilts.....lol

    I have been astral projecting for some years now and i'm starting to wonder have i brought someone (s) back with me from one of my trips....It's always the same two 'ghosts' or spirits and i usually feel their presence between 2 - 5 am. I only sleep about 4 or 5 hours a night, so when i wake up sometimes i just stay still, squint my eyes so that they don't know i'm up and i watch them. I've even come to realize that they wake me up on purpose some mornings as their presence feels even stronger than previous mornings. Like they're partying on the other side of my bedroom or sumtin'.....lol

    It is wierd, as children in the 60s, ghosts were made to be something cute with cartoons like Casper the Friendly Ghost,
    cool like the original ride in Disneyland LA, the one they made the movie from "Ghost's of the Carribbean" that was shown on NBC's Walt Disney's "Wonderful World of Color" one of the first color programs when color TVs came out after black and white,
    since it was the first time that holographic technology was presented to the public, interesting from the endless Christmas Carol movies and cartoons,
    and just plain spooky fun from a book I was given as a gift called "Afro-American Folktales" and "Alfred Hitchcock's Ghost Stories for Children" series, that was as popular as the Harry Potter series back then,

    but as one grows older, and one sees relatives pass,
    and really close loved ones pass and the sadness and horror of a child funeral,
    our sensibilities as Africna Americans, can not bear to even think of a loved one being stuck on this plane after death, just the thought of that is too horrible to bear!
    Put yourself in those shoes, could you bear the thought of your loved one passing and then be stuck like that?

    those that claim to be able to define 'mediumship' have never encountered what we have been to think of as ghosts. You're right on one level, there are no such things as ghosts but too bad that is a very low level of thinking. Sorta like a 20 watt light bulb.

    On a side note, only crackas doubt seeing or communicating in some way or form with the spirit form because they don't visit them. So once again, they try to make others feel they are crazy for what they have actually witnessed with their own eyes.

    When i was a child, when it was lightening outside my mother turned all of the electricity off and we all sat in the same room with a few candles lit.

    This lesson has so many levels too it, that i dare not touch it.........OVERSTAND?

    who ever said there are no such things as ghosts?

    Any ghost anyone sees, is someones daughter or son, someones mother or father, husband or wife, so like I said

    how would you feel if your loved one was stuck???

    Well you have to understand that all those who pass do not necessarily become "stuck". There are those who become "earth bound" do not know their dead or know they are dead and refuse to leave and then there are others who I refer to as spirits who have "crossed over" meaning they are not earthbound, have transcended and are able to come and go as they please but do most of their work from the other side. Unfortunately there are more of those who have not crossed over that people encounter most.

    I really wouldnt worry so much about that. If I knew a loved one was stuck I would have some one help try to cross them over. Whenever someone close to me dies I always pray that they transition quickly but as we know that its up to them. From what Ive been told no one remains stuck for long but mostly when they do its by their own choice or they simply dont know that they have passed.

    Thank you good points,
    another troubling thing in this regard, if someone dies from dementia or alzheimers, that is now taking the lives of some Black elderly, does the internal spirit take over after death to bring one into a better frame of mind or does that person stay in that messed up frame of cosnsciousness and may as you say not know, and then get stuck?

    Nobody knows anything for sure but I would like to think that the person would pass in their right mind. Here is why, the brain controls all our functions its the brain that is affected by disease such as Alzheimers, consciousness is separate from that in other words the body is suffering not the spirit. Now ive heard that some people who have this are gone already and actually travel between worlds...(how crazy does that sound??) Also from what I know regarding Out of body experiences (OBE) and near death experiences (NDEs) people who were born with physical ailments of the senses have full function during the experience. In other words people who have had NDEs and OBEs who are blind from birth could see, they come back describing colors and scenes that they obviously never experienced in their bodies. So if that is the case then it is certainly possible that a person dying of alzhiemers dies fully aware and crosses over normally.
