    The Scariest Fortean Thing Ever To Happen To You

    Not the scariest fortean thing, but something that has stayed with me: in 1994, i was 8 years old and my year group had been taken on a school trip from south london to the village of Shere in surrey. It was a beautiful place - it felt like a thousand miles from home and i now realise it really...

    Giving Up On FT

    I can't tell if it's the exact same profile, but the IG i found first posted on 17th October (at least that's the earliesr post) and the website it directs you to does seem to be the real FT website, so i'm hopeful it's the real thing

    Giving Up On FT

    Oh no - if it's fake then it's pretty good to be honest & probably something that should be given a go by the real FT!

    The instagram looks pretty good - if it's legit then a good way to get word of it out there

    Giving Up On FT

    I just found Fortean Times on instagram - is that the official page? Digital downloads of mags & a great looking mug! Looks like the FT has been hashtagged over 1,000 times - there's an interest in this sort of thing for sure (whispers about ghosts and the like rush around my office from us...

    You Look Just Like...

    An ex boyfriend used to say i looked like megan fox which pleased me a lot and a different person said that in a film of his life that megan fox would play me. I'll take it happily although i don't quite see it myself!

    M25 Ghost?

    Fascinating - how long did you see her for? You say she seemed surprised to see you (car, modern clothes), makes me think possible timeslip? Was there anything else odd about the environment (radio signal, mobile reception)? When you see something so out of place it's unnerving (my thread 'a...

    What Have You Been Doing Today ?

    Done cross country running and boot camp this morning, done a load of washing, listened to some music (Mariah Carey diss of Eminem and his reply, i came to this one 10 years late haha), cooking dinner, fed the cat

    Giving Up On FT

    I am early 30s - Instagram is my go to place (and my friends - not everyone has facebook anymore, mine was de-activated a long time ago and it seems to be considered a bit old fashioned)

    Weird Things That Have Multiple Witnesses?

    I am fascinated by things like this - did your son say anything else about before he was born or where/how he followed you?

    Thomas Cook / Operation Matterhorn

    Although i had heard rumblings in the media that TC were needing bailout a few months ago, i had already booked my flights (flight only -the accomodation was done seperately), i thought they were a big company and even if one branch of it went down, i thought the TC airline would be profitable...

    Thomas Cook / Operation Matterhorn

    Has anyone been caught up in this? I was abroad when Thomas Cook went bust so my flights home were cancelled. New flight arranged via the Civil Aviation Authority however on turning up at the airport to check in as instructed, many were told they weren't on The List and would not be going back...

    Pennies From Heaven

    In February this year, it was 2 years since my lovely grandad passed away. On the anniversary, i spent a few minutes in the morning thinking about him & saying a prayer for those who might need extra comfort that day. Then i left and went to work as usual. I get the bus a few stops before...

    Childhood Impressions

    That was very interest That was very interesting, didn't know any of that My experience felt less dream like & more like semi waking with a sense of knowing (like when you start to wake up & think is my alarm about to go off, what day is it?), there was no imagery or words that i would...

    Childhood Impressions

    Thanks for sharing your dream, just read the link - very moving and vivid, sorry to hear you went through such a tough time & hope life has been kinder since. It's hard to scrutinise dreams isn't it, as it's hard to convey in words to other people. I guess if it feels different & there's a deep...

    Childhood Impressions

    What were your precognitive dreams (if you don't mind saying of course) & did they have a different feel from ordinary dreams?

    Childhood Impressions

    You may well be right - i'll let you know if i ever get there! Dreams and semi waking states are a strange place of blurred lines & blended realities & definately think there are messages there - whether they come from within or somewhere else no one can say (i suspect both)

    You were probably very special to her! To be chosen by someone is a lovely thing very sweet And also fantastic advice in those bullet points - you learned young!

    Childhood Impressions

    I won't tell them where you are if you don't tell mine where i am! I've got a decent job & pay my own bills & have a good independent social life, but under the cloak of anonymity i now would choose a man who pursued me & made me feel special, who could look after & take care of me if needed...

    Childhood Impressions

    The christmas dream sounds like a classic anxiety dream of failing to be prepared - i dream similar things of turning up at the airport with no luggage or passport, and did i forget to print my boarding pass? Very stressful - especially with christmas preparations tending to be such a big deal...

    Childhood Impressions

    What an absolutely lovely story, that boy sounded such a sweet kid! Suppose it's the similar trait of wanting to look after a girl that we (or at least me) look for in men There were definitely no family weddings as a child, although i was probably a guest at one or two (no clear memories) but...

    Childhood Impressions

    You could well be right - i remember my first crush being during infants school (around age 6 or so probably), not in the adult sense but just a strong feeling of wanting to be close to one particular boy more than anyone else. But when i had these semi waking feelings of wedding days, i felt...

    Childhood Impressions

    Maybe you're right in a way - but for very non fortean reasons. I love him very much, but he makes very little effort in life, consistently unemployed, lazy. I work hard to pay all the bills etc, and feel taken for granted sometimes. So i do fantasise about the Man of My Dreams whilst trying to...

    Childhood Impressions

    This thought / memory has been going round my head recently: When i was a young child (under 7, because it was before i moved bedroom to my main bedroom where i stayed until i left home), i remember starting to wake up & being convinced it was my wedding day - except i didn't want to get...

    Anyone Seen A Ghost?

    I think casting out spirits I think casting out spirits etc doesn't sound that far fetched for those types of church communities, i'm thinking maybe of the African churches - obviously i could be wrong but it would be my guess. Sounds like quite an experience living there!

    Anyone Seen A Ghost?

    Feeling low, cold breezes from the locked room & seeing the lady - definitely sounds like there was some kind of energy in the place. Good to not immediately attribute every little thing to a ghost, i think most things probably have a logical cause, but sometimes when you know, you know (lady...

    Anyone Seen A Ghost?

    Hi Tableloop - this is a fantastic experience, must have been terrifying & amazing all at once to see the figure of the woman made up of lights. Also it rings true about not really thinking about it afterwards - my own haunted flat tale is earlier in this thread and although when i think about...

    Creepy Door Handle In Wales

    Hi Escargot - i did hear of that some years after, a tragic and horrible thing. Not saying it was the same thing of course, but what unnerved me even at 11 was the quietness, it was the lock/door in the frame themselves i heard moving not whatever/whoever was trying it. Kids from our year would...

    Creepy Door Handle In Wales

    I have a couple of door handle incidents actually: 1) I was in junior school, this was around 1994/95 and the classroom doors were a large glass panel with a wood bottom (so you could see anyone walk past and the base wasn't big enough to hide a child or adult. One day in a lesson, the door...

    My Not-So-Secret Admirer

    That's the most romantic thing - did you end up getting back together?! This stuff is more than co-incidence to me (and is also the sort of stuff my romance filled dreams are made of!)

    Does Anyone Here Have Psychic Abilities?

    Hi Frideswide - you're absolutely right! Would never give out any personal info. Suppose I was thinking more about tuning in or 'knowing' without someone cold reading face to face or going through your social pages in advance. Thanks for the advice, appreciated

    Does Anyone Here Have Psychic Abilities?

    Thanks escargot - glad your tarot reading was spot on, I do think there's a lot in it. I have a pack of cards (not tarot but some sort of angel cards) that someone gave me years ago - sometimes i use those for guidance. Maybe someone around here has some skills!

    Does Anyone Here Have Psychic Abilities?

    I was wondering whether anybody on these boards has any psychic abilities? I've toyed with the idea of going to a psychic / medium but don't want to get ripped off. Then i wondered if anyone did on these boards? Just thinking out loud - hopefully no one takes offence!

    What Are Your Other Interests Besides Paranormal Stuff?

    My main hobby is fitness and exercise - always outdoors, i'm part of an outdoors boot camp and love it in all weathers - gives me such a buzz and the team work is great and uplifting. So anything fitness related, and those obstacle course races are a big thing for me Love soaps (eastenders!) and...

    Biometric Bilocation

    I used to go to a bar/club which required you to use your thumb print as ID, every time you went in you would put your thumb on the reader - regularly it would bring up someone else's picture when i put my thumb on the reader! So i don't think they're that reliable - freaky experience at the gym...

    Do Forteans Represent A Particular Social / Personality Profile?

    I'm not what you would consider 'geeky' and am not into sci fi whatsoever, am quite sporty, girly, bit of a party girl Have been interested in forteana most of my life (of a real life experience kind), almost seemed born into me. However i only discuss this sort of thing with 1 or 2 people in...

    Anyone Seen A Ghost?

    Was going to say was it definitely a cat (as i tend to think everything i see out of the corner of my eye is my cat when it isn't!), however as you watched it walk across the room then it must have been, very interesting
