An regular, everyday, natural gal trying to get in touch with her supernatural self...

One of the things that attracted me to my DH was that we could talk about the stuff that no one ever wanted to face. See, I grew up in the middle of a cornfield (Ok, maybe not seriously, but pretty damned close anyway!), and when you grow up pretty isolated there really isn't much to do let alone much call to talk about anything paranormal or metaphysical.
In all honesty it still feels strange to have a conversation outside my head about all the stuff that I think about in that vein. However, ghosts have kind of wiggled their way into our lives and we have learned to live with them.
Unfortunately, ours has been mostly quiet again. "Whoever" seems to come and go in waves of activity. There for a while we were getting constant movement, noise, voices...lately we've been pretty close to nothing. I think there must be a period of "recharging" that needs to take place.
Though I have to admit I'm starting to see things out of the corner of my eye again. Yesterday was laundry day so I saw Foster a couple of times. I also saw someone walking down our stairs leading to our basement yesterday afternoon. Then Saturday night I was finishing up working on the laptop, and not so much out of the corner of my eye, but in the peripheral vision above my glasses I saw a more gold than white streak of light go from the ceiling and make a slight 1/2 moon type curve down toward the floor and disappear.
Anywho - I digress (yet again)! One of our new favorite TV shows though is on the Biography channel called "My Ghost Story". I think it's a fantastic show (way better than their Psychic Kids show...that one just pisses me off), and it's basically real people talking about their ghostly experiences along with any still photos or video that they've taken to document their experiences. We've actually seen some fantastic video on this show.
My favorite, so far, was a guy who's TV remote was sitting on his table and all of a sudden it would jerk and move across the table a little ways. My first thought was, there's some kind of fishing line attached to it causing it, but because he knew that there were going to be skeptics he picked it up and showed that there was nothing attached to it to make it do it. He put it back down on the table and it moved again. It was pretty cool.
DH's favorite, I think, to date is where a family bought a house and moved in. Their small son mentioned a boy living in his closet and it was freaking him out. After having multiple experiences in the house, they called in a paranormal group who sat on the floor with a really light ball and the ball slowly moved across the floor. He loved that video so much he bought a ball from the cheapy store....I think he's secretly wishing I'd play with the ghost and the ball while he's at the office one night so I can get it on video. =) hehehe
Good stuff so far! Check it out if you get the chance!
