Alzheimer's and Psychic Ability

abracad, · Categories: paranormal phenomena

My mother is in a nursing home with advanced dementia. Although bed-bound, having hallucinations, and sadly with a seemingly diminishing grasp of reality she is sometimes remarkably intuitive, eg in recent weeks:

  1. She warned me not to go to a certain dentist. I rarely visit a dentist, and she has never talked of dentists in
    her present condition, but I had been just a few days earlier to have a crown replaced. She could not have
    known that I was due to visit a dentist.
  2. I usually take the bus alone to visit her home, but on this occasion was given a lift by my partner. My mother
    asked if "they were waiting for me". She has not said this before or since and there was no way for her to have known I was given a ride on that day.
  3. I usually work at home and rarely travel into the city for business, but on this occasion had been to the city the previous week and secured some forthcoming work that would mean me spending 2 days a week in the city for a while. When I told my mother I was working tomorrow, she asked if I was going to the city, although she could not have known of these plans.
  4. Her younger brother passed away suddenly and her family decided not to tell her. A few days afterwards her elder brother visited the home and mentioned their sibling's passing to the nursing staff. He was surprised to find that they already knew, because my mother had told them - even though she had no physical way to have learned this information!

Could it be that somehow, despite her Alzheimer's, part of her mind is able to access information beyond the physical senses?

Spirit light?

abracad, · Categories: paranormal phenomena

On Sunday evening, 3 March 2014 approx 8pm, I was walking home from Spiritualist church along the raised esplanade parallel with the sea. I notice a bright white light down at the beach level ~200m ahead, like the light on a bicycle. It was moving and kept going in and out of sight, then disappeared.

As I got closer it reappeared now at the raised esplanade level a little further along than before, approx 100m ahead. It appeared to be behind (from my standpoint) a parked van, still moving and going in and out of sight.

Finally, just as I was about to turn off to my home the light was shining over the back of the van, still moving, as though its source were between me and the van, but there was no visible light source. NB: I didn't go closer, so cannot 100% rule out a natural cause.

A review of Colin Wilson’s sequel to The Occult

Mysteries

Colin Wilson is one of the most thorough and prolific researchers and writers on the paranormal of recent years. Mysteries was written as a sequel to Wilson’s The Occult, and continues and extends the theme of that classic investigation into the world of the unknown.

Mysteries begins by floating the possibility that the “self” actually consists of a hierarchy of levels that may be likened to a ladder with higher rungs of shorter and shorter length (presumably meaning they are harder to experience, or are reached by fewer souls). Wilson adopted this concept after experiencing a series of panic attacks that were ended by his invoking a higher self (which he refers to as the schoolmistress effect). (more…)

British government release UFO files

abracad, · Categories: in the news, paranormal phenomena, ufos

The BBC reports that the British Ministry of Defence today released a large numbers of reports of UFO sightings between 1985 and 2007, including those from official sources such as Air Force pilots.

It's likely the majority have rational explanations, but might some be evidence of extra-terrestrial, or even Spiritual, phenomena?

The reports can be downloaded from http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

Scientists and the Paranormal

abracad, · Categories: coincidence and synchronicity, paranormal phenomena, science and spirituality

Plenty of people report paranormal experiences, but when those accounts come from prominent members of the scientific community might they be even more significant? Scientists are trained to be objective, and those that reach the top of their profession have had their objectivity endorsed by their peers.

Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, founder of Jungian analysis and originator of the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator, had several paranormal experiences. (more…)

The ghost mobile

abracad, · Categories: externally authored, paranormal phenomena

Contributed by Alan Aitcheson

A true story, hard to believe but it really did happen, real life can be far stranger at times than fiction.

I was talking to a friend the other night recalling a couple of spooky events that took place several years ago. When my eldest daughter was in her final year at school I bought her a new mobile/cell phone, she used it for a year or more then decided to buy herself a new one. I had the old mobile phone back and used it myself for a further year before it become obsolete. I smashed it and threw it in the bin.

Totally forgetting about it, until two policemen arrived at my door around two years after getting rid of the phone; they informed me that an emergency 999 call had been made and I was the named owner of the mobile phone. (more…)

Broken glass & spirits?

abracad, · Categories: externally authored, paranormal phenomena

Posted on behalf of Marcy

I'm curious about whether there is any symbolic meaning to the occasional sound of broken glass (with no apparent origin or cause) in a home. It's a very distinctive noise, and repeated searches of the house have yielded no source. It sounded as if a lamp had been shattered, or perhaps a drinking glass had been dropped. It's a small house and I've gone through it thoroughly trying to find the cause. (more…)
