Continuation of Female Voices, An Apparition, Black Orbs and More:
The next incidents happened in June of this year. The first incident happened when I was preparing to take a shower. I walked into the hall bathroom and turned the light on. Just after I did this, a small black object a little larger than a typical fly flew towards me. Then, quickly turned around and flew toward the wall at the far side of the tub. I thought it was a bug and that I had just lost sight of it. So, I shrugged it off as nothing unusual. Thinking back, I didn't hear the typical buzzing sound that a fly or something slightly larger would make at close proximity. Anyway, a similar event occurred a few days later. This time it happened in a different bathroom. I was taking care of business on the toilet when I suddenly heard a few "pings" (for lack of a better word). They came from my left and slightly behind me. It sounded as if something was bumping into the wall behind the toilet and the outer part of the cabinet under the sink. I looked over thinking, "what the heck?" and didn't see anything. So, I finished my business and got up to wash my hands.
As I moved over to the sink, I saw this same sort of black object fly from about the height of the counter up and toward the window on the opposite wall. Rather than turn around, I kept an eye on it through the large mirror above the sink. It flew right through the blinds as if they weren't there! Seriously! It didn't struggle to find a space between the slats. It just went right through in a straight line from where it had come from on the opposite side of the room! I was thinking to myself, "That couldn't have been a bug! I've never seen a bug fly straight through closed blinds without struggling to find a way between the slats!" Again, I didn't hear any noise; save the "pings" against the hard, solid surfaces. No buzzing sound and no sound of a bug hitting the window panes trying to find a way out. I even looked behind the blinds and didn't see a bug. I'm thinking that in both cases it was some sort of black orb. I'm guessing that it passed right through the wall at the far end of the tub the first time as I didn't see or hear any sort of bug while I was in the shower. I think I really startled it the second time and that's why it bumped into things trying to find a place to hide. Then, it quickly flew out of the house when it thought it was safe to do so. That's my take. What do you think?
The only other thing that could be construed as remotely paranormal is that I've often felt a negative "vibe" in my current home. I wasn't really attuned to it until after I had been on the RIGHT anti-depressant/anxiety medication for a while. Some just didn't work for me. Others worked, but had bad side effects. Let's just say that I won't be taking Wellbutrin ever again! OK. I'll say it before you do! Yes, some anti-depressant/anxiety meds can cause hallucinations. And, yes, I did have some while I was on Wellbutrin. Fortunately, they only occurred while I was in sort of a "twilight" state in between being awake and asleep. Now, you're going to say, "Well, that explains all of the voices and such!" No. It doesn't. I was only on Wellbutrin for 4-5 months. That was back in 2008. I have had NO hallucinations before or since.
Let's see... Where was I? Oh yeah, negative "vibes". I became aware of these over the past couple of years. I would feel depressed or angry for no reason. So, one day about a year to year and a half ago I decided to call out firmly telling any spirits, energy, etc that were causing me to feel unnecessarily depressed or angry that they were not welcome in my home and to leave. I did this in the master bedroom upstairs and the living room downstairs. I said it quite firmly and with conviction. It seemed to work. I have felt these negative "vibes" once or twice since then. I simply performed the same actions and they were gone. Also, to be on the safe side, I did it again after seeing those 2 black orbs. Knock on wood (my official disclaimer to prevent something from happening), everything has been fine up to present.
Actually, there is one more thing. I went on a ghost tour in Williamsburg in June 2010. I took quite a few pictures. I posted the most interesting ones in one of my blogs (http://progthinker.blogspot.com/2010/06/is-colonial-williamsburg-really-haunted.html). Since I have pretty thorough descriptions and such in the blog entry, I won't repeat them here. Most of the pictures contain orbs. I know that many of you question orbs because they could be dust, bugs, etc. I urge you to take a look at them and decide for yourself. Please feel free to leave comments on the pictures both here and in the blog. Even if you assume all of the orbs are dust or bugs, there are still a few things I caught in which I have no explanation; especially the "ribbon of light".
I think that just about wraps up my paranormal experiences up to the date of this post. I hope to have many more to tell over the coming years. I think that the more I read and the more I learn I'll be more comfortable with the idea of being visited and the spirits will be more comfortable making their presence known.
