My True (Surprise) Ouija Experience
It was at my birthday party/sleepover on August 13, 1998. I had four friends there: Ivey, Michelle, Amanda, and Jackie. We were in my basement and had just gotten done playing a card game called "Aces" or "6s" (the game where you take out the 6s or the aces and each one means either yes, no, or maybe; you ask questions and use these cards to contact spirits). Anyway, we just had gotten done when Jackie asked me if I had a Ouija board. She really likes to make me mad and she knew I had hidden min . . .
The Denial of Death
"500 will be the death of you!" I woke up shuttering at those last words.
I sat up and looked at the alarm clock next to my bed. 1 AM too early to do anything. I lay back down unable to sleep and stared at my ceiling for what seemed like an eternity. Something in the back of my mind seemed to be eating away at me, but its nothing I kept telling myself and rolled over and went back to sleep.
4 :00 AM I wake up something is in my house, right down the hall I don't know how but it is. I have t . . .
I was so happy when she was born. I held her there in my arms, warm and smiling. Like a beautiful flower. So we called her Lily and she was the joy of my life, always wanting to help with the cooking the washing and the cleaning even though the hoover was massive compared to her. Then she got sick. Not the normal stuff like the flu. She would get horrible fevers so high that she had to stay in hospital. I thought she would come out soon enough but she dint. Cancer they said. Brain tumor. My worl . . .
The Demon Under the Bed
I can remember when I was in hospital and only a few days old when a man dressed in a brown suit was standing near my crib and said, "Your destiny is not yet written!" Since then I have been visited by demons and have had strange "psychic" abilities that I do not fully understand! My first encounter with a demon was when I was around 7 years old. I was always scared of the dark, so I used to sing loudly and rock myself gently until I would go to sleep. On this particular night, we had a blackout . . .
Money from Heaven
My oldest son and I were sitting in our living room discussing money, or the lack of it. It was a really bad time in my life. I was crying because I didn't have lunch money for my three sons' school lunches the next day and I didn't know what to do about it. I had decided to just keep them home from school. My son was 12 and hadn't missed a day all year and he was saying, "I can't miss tomorrow! I just can't!" All I needed was $3 and I couldn't even get that. We heard a noise in the kitchen and . . .
When I was a child, I used to have floating dreams and as I got older they became flying dreams. At first they were isolated to only around the house, then as I got older I suppose you might say I went off exploring. These dreams were fantastic and more than vivid. They were lived out with other people with what seemed as actual interactions and conversations, as well as just observing what may have been going on below me as I floated or flew. After I went to college, my dreams were more and mor . . .
Voice on the Tape
I had an astrologer prepare my natal chart for me. At her home, only she and I and one other woman were present. The astrologer and I went to a separate room and closed the door for the reading. While she spoke, a tape recorder ran, preserving her words for me to listen to at my leisure. At one point we digressed from the reading to talk about our respective marriages and why we got married when we did. All during the reading, we were in a completely closed room, just the two of us, windows and . . .
Play It Again, Grandma
I was in high school at the time. It was a Friday night and my whole family was at the high school game, as my brother was playing in it. I had been grounded for some reasons I can't remember now. My grandmother, who had lived with us, had passed away about two years earlier. She was the only one in our family who could play the piano. I only ever heard her play two songs. One was the "Third Man Theme." I was alone in the house and we had a basement. The piano that belonged to my grandmother was . . .
A Glimpse of the Afterlife
In November, 1966 my husband loaded a friend and myself and three children into an almost new Chevy SportsVan and we set off for a holiday trip to "The Lake" about 150 miles from Salem, Oregon. I drove for the first part of the trip. I had been teaching all day and stayed late and was tired when I got home. I remember standing in a fully lit dining room and having the sensation of seeing through a dark tunnel, seeing only the two figures of my husband and his friend on the sofa and the light abo . . .
Saved by a '74 Chevy Vega
April 3, 1974 was the day the tornados hit parts of the Midwest and almost totally destroyed Xenia, Ohio. It was also my birthday. I was living in Cincinnati at the time. I had a new 1974 Chevy Vega and had just left the dealership after having its 3,000-mile check-up. The gas tank was full. I worked just across the border in Indiana. The fastest route was down Bridgetown Road. I was stopped at a traffic light across the street from a Catholic Church. When the light turned green, the car would n . . .
