    Recurring Sensation Of Presence Over Left Shoulder

    I just want to post something. But am mildly curious as to whether anyone else gets this too. I frequently get the feeling of a presence just behind my left shoulder/ear. Sort of a feeling of pressure or a change in atmosphere - just as you would feel if someone was standing right behind you. It...

    My Fifteen Minutes Of Enlightenment

    This happened to me twenty years ago. My (then) wife and I had recently had a baby boy die from SIDS at the age of seven weeks. The months of grieving following this were of course absolute hell on earth. But in the midst of it I had an extraordinary thing happen to me on two different...

    Usual Story: Ghost At The End Of The Bed

    I have always been bemused that ghosts are reported as turning up at people's bedsides. To me it seems perfectly logical that the person was either just falling asleep and misread the surroundings and external stimulae or had just woken from a dream and retained the image with the eyes now...
