I found this site through Google in search of real life accounts of paranormal experiences because I've been writing a novel about fictional letters from fictional people about their paranormal experiences. I wanted the novel to sound much more real and not fabricated and stale. So far, reading all of your experiences have inspired me and made me want to write more.
But that isn't what I want to discuss. I haven't had many experiences in my life when it comes to the paranormal, but the ones I have had, tend to stick with me forever. I hope that you will believe me, because I've only told one person, which was my mom, who seemed that she didn't believe me.
I hear that having an astral projection happens during times of great stress. But I have never read a story about having one as an infant. Few months after I was born, my grandmother had fallen ill (I've never met her to remember her). I contemplate that during this time, my mother was under great stress. Perhaps the stress traveled from her, to me through her breast milk? I'm not sure, but this experience is my earliest memory.
I remember hovering over my parents' bed (at this time they were together). Funny thing was, was that as an astral projection I was no longer an infant. I could walk and I treaded between my mom and dad from the foot of the bed up. The TV was on and it was casting blue light across all of us. That is when I saw myself, suckling in my red striped overall. Milk was dribbling from the side of my mouth I think my parents were asleep, but I'm not sure.
It couldn't have been my younger sister because we are only 18 months apart and she wasn't born until after my grandmother died. This is all I can remember about the experience. It's plagued me with questions all my life. I still don't understand and I still don't know if it was real or not.
Another experience is a little more recent. I was spending the summer in my dad's house in Arizona (I'm originally from there), and my elder brother, younger sister, and I were all sleeping in the same room. It was perhaps around one or two at night when I was startled to consciousness by the sound of a man screaming in my ear. It sounded like this man was in serious pain, whoever he was and he wanted my attention. It was silent in the room; no one was awake watching TV. I couldn't go to sleep for several minutes until I got myself a cup of water and calmed down.
My dad's side of the family say that his house is haunted because the previous owner died inside it while being mentally ill (don't know if he was insane). No one stays in the living room alone at night, even with our three dogs (two are pit bulls!) to keep them company. The heaviness (even during the day) feels oppressive.
Only my stepmother seemed to be the only other with an experience in the house. Others get feelings. She was doing laundry on her day off when she felt the presence of someone behind her. The laundry room is small and turning around is difficult. She thought it was my dad playing a trick on her to scare her so she said, "------ cut it out." but she then realized that he was at work. She turned around quickly to see a quick white mist dart past right in front of her face.
Can someone explain the astral projection and how should I deal with this (possible) entity in my summer home?
There is one other experience, but I think you've got your mind wrapped around these already. I will post the other later.
