Alright, we are getting some entries in now, so I will share another one of my weird experiences. This one will be a little lighter. Not so spooky, but totally true.

Two years ago I was watching Ghost Hunters with my brother. It was this time of year and I had a this candle burning, like I do right now. The one in black. Not that it has anything to do with the story, but oh my gosh, this is the best candle ever. It really fills your whole house with the nicest, spicy, warm, autumn smells. And they last forever. I am smelling the same one right now..lol. Click on the pic if you want to go get one. Gosh- they should be paying me for this.
Anyway, just trying to set the scene for you. It was dark, we were all tucked in, with the fire blazing. We had just finished a particularly scary Ghost Hunters and I said to my brother that if anything like that ever happened to me, I wouldn't know what to do.
Right as I finished saying that, I saw a bright white light, so bright it was bluish. It looked like a sparkler that had been lit up and then exploded, then all of it traveled to the right in a flash. It was like a little comet. It left a tail of light and as it disappeared to the right, about 6 or 7 feet. I froze and thought that maybe my brain was malfunctioning, that I was having a stroke or something. I looked over at my brother with tears in my eyes to see if he had just seen that too. He had eyes the size of plates, so I knew that he did. We both couldn't speak. I pulled my throw over my head and just lay there trying to process what that was. Literally a few minutes went by before we started to talk about it.
We took the Ghost Hunters approach, and tried to debunk it, like they do. It could have been car lights, (it was nothing like that) but what if.
So we went to all the back windows and saw that all blinds were closed tightly. Plus, at the back of my house where the family room is, a car couldn't get headlights to magically bend around the house. Besides that, it was bright, like looking right into a sparkler bright. It was hot white, and moved strangely and with crazy speed.
The funny thing is where that happened is a place I had always been keenly aware of. I'd often be watching TV and look at that spot because I thought I saw movement there. Then this goes and happens in the same spot!!! It was strange, very strange. I still don't know what to call it. Was it paranormal? Was it a spirit using energy to show itself to us? What!?!?! How does all this work. I guess this is why I am so intrigued by it all. I believe we go to heaven after we die, or hell, so what are so many people experiencing?
Everyone we told after that just laughed at us. I saw it and so did my brother. That made me believe it. I would have played it off in my mind as having something on my contact, or my eyes being tired. It was incredible. I can't explain it to this day. I don't know if that is what some people call orbs, but it was quite the experience. I wonder if watching shows like Ghost Hunters actually makes it easier for things like this to happen? I don't know. My Dad says so, and hates that I watch it. I love it, so for now I will continue to disappoint my father..ha, what's new J/K
I'm loving the stories so far and based on the CRAZY traffic I am getting, we should have hundreds by now, so come on peeps, join the fun.
