Two nights ago, I had a couple of friends over for a night of margaritas and music. Just a fun night with my girls. I have this friend Emily, who is a wild one, and she suggested we do a seance in my living room. I thought she was crazy, and didn't really feel like participating.
However, I fell under the peer pressure of my two friends and joined hands with both girls inside a circle of lit candles. Now, I do believe in spirits, so let me be clear about that. I've just never read up on seances or anything like that, as I find them to be more pagan than anything else, and to be quite honest I thought they were sort of a hoax. I'm still not entirely sure where I stand on that.
So my friend tells us to have an opened mind, and of course at this point I do, four margaritas in and little bit of pot on the side (I'm an easy drunk). We ask spirits to join us in the room. I jokingly ask Marilyn Monroe to enter the room, arguing that a famous person should have all the time in the world to do these kinds of things once they are deceased. But Emily argues MM is possibly a popular candidate for seances.
So, I ask my dead grandmother to join us. We carry on, asking the spirit to make contact with us in any way possible, give us a sign etc. And nothing. I think being as drunk as I was, the reason we stopped having our seance is because I drunkenly knocked over one of the candles, and remarked how the seance was a bit of a mood killer.
So it's been two days since then, and I've noticed some minor, yet strange things happening around me. It could just be because I'm tired, or CRAZY, but I doubt that. I've noticed dark shapes moving in the corner of my vision. It's happened on a few occasions, and each time it was very distracting.
Earlier today when I was in the living room (where we held our seance), I could hear the faint whispering of a female's voice. That also happened on another occasion yesterday when I was cooking in my kitchen. No one was home but me, and I live in the country, so it as unlikely my neighbours' who live far away from me. It was out of the ordinary to say the least.
Then, just past midnight, I was soaking in the hot tub outside, thinking to myself. I was in very deep thought when suddenly the blower jets in my hot tub turned on, scaring the crap out of me. My hot tub is on a 30 minute cycle where the jets do turn on automatically just so the water doesn't get stagnant, but it was already in the process of one of those cycles when this happened. The blower jets are different. It's like the jets that massage you. Anyway, it was really creepy, so I hopped out immediately, did some research on seances, and then came to post this.
I'm looking for feedback and opinions. It's only been two days, but I'm hoping these few things were either just my imagination playing tricks on me, or coincidence. Because in my opinion, we didn't do the seance properly (according to a few different websites), but then again, it isn't really a science is it?
