Re: What is the absolute strangest thing that you have ever seen that no one else could POSSIBLY beleive?
I have seen many ghosts and Spirits thru the years...no one ever wants to belive me about it.
Sometimes, they look like a real person and I believe them to be real, but then they vanish!
I have made the mistake of trying to speak to them, thinking they were solid/human, but when they hear my physical voice, they vanish.

Once, in a very old house I had just bought...I saw something I've never seen before, or again, to this day.
I saw 3 big balls of light go flying across the room , diagonally, infront of me.
The room had a roof on it where 1 side was higher than the other..they started in the high part of the ceiling on that side, and went down into the floor boards, on the diagonal from where they had started.
They had to be every bit of 24 inches in diameter...and they were an orange kind of color, with some green mixed in with it.
One right after the other, they sped across, infront of me.
I have no doubt that was some sort of ghost/spirit that I saw..only in 'energy form.'
I later found where the original entrance to the basement/slave quarters of the house was....directly under where I'd seen the glowing balls of light go flying across the room!
When indoor plumbing was installed in the house...an addition across the back was built for the new kitchen and bathroom...directly over that old entrance.
I loved that old house!
And, apparently it/the Spirits there, loved me too...because once they knew I was there to try and save the place to keep it from being torn down...they did not 'bother' me anymore.
They took more of a 'protective roll' and warned me if a dangerous person came into my house. They would do stuff like tear chunks of drywall off the ceiling, and throw it at the bad person.
There was a couple of female spirits that mainly stayed upstairs...and if my son kicked his cover off at night...they would go in and cover him back up!
A friend of mine spent the night in Andy's room, and I found him on the couch in the morning..when I asked why he was downstairs..he told me 'Those women upstairs won't leave me alone! They keep covering me up when I kick the blanket off!! LOL..

Re: What is the absolute strangest thing that you have ever seen that no one else could POSSIBLY beleive?
The time when I pulled up the road from home, and a guy in the car ahead and to the side of me pulled opened the door and pointed a red hot gun at my face.

Instantaneously, time came almost to a stop and I felt surreal as if I was an actor in a movie. I just looked at him without fear, and he withdrew the gun back into the car, and shut the door.

I've told a couple people about it thinking they wouldn't believe me, but they didn't seem to respond as if I was crazy or anything. It's just hard to explain.

Re: What is the absolute strangest thing that you have ever seen that no one else could POSSIBLY beleive?
this thread is hair raising.

i've seen many ghosts, i guess.
a few different types maybe?

one being a ghost-thing that exudes pure sorrow and sadness..

Something enjoys walking around my house when no one is here but myself, slamming doors and cabinets and drawers.

it's widely believed that my town was built on an indian burial ground, but i can't find any evidence.

i've spoken to the hat man while tripping on benadryl.
(side note: i don't suggest that in any way shape or form.)
and once when completely sober. he is fear incarnate.

i nearly constantly see what looks like people walking around except that they seem to be a shadow of some sort.

if i try i can see auras.
they seem to come off people like smoke or mist in a variety of colors that seem to fit either their mood or personality.

not something i've seen but,
i can feel/sense/idontevenknowwhattocallit emotions of people within 10-20 feet.
(i've never done an actual test, estimating.)

myself and a friend were dicking around downtown in my city, looking into what was an abandoned bar.
on the other side of the glass we were looking through there was a mirror that scared the shit out of me at first.
as i started to say "that mirror scared the shit out of me"
something decided it was the best time to pound on a metal door to our left from the inside. it was extremely frightening.

while standing on a dock around 2-3am with my brother i looked into the water and saw a loved one drowning, being held under by weeds in the water.
i had to be held back, though i knew it couldn't be real.
after whatever plan the thing had failed it decided to go under the dock and start forcing water up through it while banging on the bottom. we bolted for safety.
this was also the first time i saw the figured that seem to exude pure sadness.

and the best story of all, and the most unbelievable,

When i was about 11-12 years old i walked into my bedroom where i had a standing mirror that i never used.
for the first time i decided to walk up to it and take a look at myself (i generally avoid this.)
while i was walking over a green, gelatinous blob fell from my ceiling in the mirror and began shape shifting.

i remember hearing a voice in my head, it/he spoke of collapse, armageddon and told me that myself and my brothers would survive what would come, that we were meant for some great purpose.
He claimed he was satan.

the whole time he spoke the blob-thing continued to change shapes.
into people i knew, hellish nightmare visions, people i've never met (but have since.)

according to my brothers i came out of the room in a daze and informed them of the happenings.

I was born with a southern accent (i have only visited the south, grew up in the northern midwest) and according to my mother as a baby i enjoyed sitting in corners and holding detailed, long conversations with things that weren't there (or weren't visible) about things that it's safe to say no 2 year old would know of.

I also have insane luck...

Re: What is the absolute strangest thing that you have ever seen that no one else could POSSIBLY beleive?
I saw an image of "death" in the sky... Took the form of clouds and it was huge. I looked at my husband and told him I thought I was going to die.

It stopped my heart and tears fell freely. I sincerely thought I or someone I was close to was going to die.

It turns out I got the message quite wrong. It was september 10, 2001. The next day there was no mistaking what the message was. Around 10 am central time I got it loud and clear.

Ive only told less than a handful of people. It sounds made up... So much so, that I often try and reconcile the event by rationalizing it down to my imagination... Never works.

My husband had a dream that he was watching Bernie Mac's funeral and told me about it that morning. He died that day. Was crazy.

I also have dreams of nuclear fall out in Hawaii. Link a bomb... All buildings are leveled and there is a man trying to organize how to handle what food and water was still available in order to ration it. Not that this is anything I've seen in any other way...

I've seen a Cherub... Not such a great one.

Many spirits.

My daughter has seen little fur balls all over her floor that are about 6 inches in diameter... She says they're spirits.

I don't struggle with this anymore, though. I'm thankful for that. :)

honestly the strangest thing thats ever happened to me happened just yesterday. Im actually the op to this thread, but my internet provider is shitty and i loose internet so my ip changes all the time. Anyhow. My deceased grandfather was a really good clock maker. He was into clocks and coins and stuff like that. He made me and my wife a beautiful mantle piece clock before me and my wife moved to germany. He has since passed and the last time I saw him was when he gave me this clock. It has to be wound to work the clock and another place to wind for the chime. Ive had this clock packed in a box and got around to putting it out about a month ago. I am afraid to mess with it. I kind of feel bad because I didnt have it working, but I was afraid I would break it for some reason. Well yesterday afternoon I was in the kitchen and I heard this really strange and unfamiliar noise comming from the living room. I go to see what it is and sure enough, the clock was chiming and it was set at exatly 12 o clock. I was aghast and quite perplexed, as my wife doesnt know how it works. That was yesterday at around 7 pm. It is around 24 hours later and it is STILL working and chiming! the glass case to the clock part was ajar as well. and the clock was never at 12, it was always at some other random time. I dont know what to make of this still. I try to debunk it but theres no way to. Ive seen many strange things in my life but that could be attributed to anything not paranormal. This clock is tangable proof that something paranormal happened to this clock and I beleive it was my grandfather. No one has access to my house and like i said my wife doesnt tamper with things at all let alone this clock. Im going to let this thing go and see how long it lasts.

2 things...a few years ago I was leaving my house at night and just happened to be looking up and there was a plane pretty high up in the sky. Just looked like your standard moving blinking set of lights. All of a sudden very quickly something streaks down in the sky, to me it looked like a fallin star would on a clear sky night and the thing streaks right directly through the plane I see and appears to slighty lessen and dissapear when it does..I have no idea if it was a trick of depth/sight, etc..but it was weird sure..what are the chances...2 was when I was around 10 yrs old I woke up one night with my bed violently shaking, and looked at the bottom of the bed to see what was happening and there was what looked like a cloaked being, about 4 ft. Tall just standing there, no features really, jusy a black form, but I could make out arms, torso, larger cloaked head..I pulled the sheet over my head and froze up in horror and cried myself to sleep. Never happened again..no idea what it was..maybe it was myslef traveling back in time to visit myself..lol..

I saw the 4ft cloaked being too. I did exactly the same thing. Went under my blanket shaking and crying all night.

Great thread, 5 stars OP. I've read the entire thing.

I was around 10 years old and about 8 of us were playing hide and go seek on a cloudless summer day. Base was between my house and the next door neighbors, one of the kids started counting and we all scattered. One boy and I ran 180 degrees around the house and were safely nestled in the bushes when he looked up and asked,
"What is that?".
I looked up and saw a cigar shaped, grayish silver object about the distance from the ground that a traffic helicopter would have. It was stationary for just a few seconds, it then dipped just slightly, started spinning on its axis like the blades of a fan until it became saucer shaped, then zipped right up into the sky and was gone. The entire episode maybe lasted 5, 6 seconds. We immediately stumbled out, called everybody over, told them what we saw. Nobody else saw it, and I don't think they believed us either.

I big black thing in WA state in the forest, like a tarantula with ten legs and it scaled with tree in 10 seconds, i stared at it in disbelief and it went right past a huge crow and it was almost twice as big. I didn't open the window for two months. Everytime a pine cone fell on the roof and went bouncing off, I almost stroked out.

1-Was in Nepal. Saw clouds form dragon that was the
same dragon-design on a bracelet that I had just purchased
from a Tibetan refugee.
I had earlier walked off without paying with a ring on my finger as our raft had arrived suddenly.
I returned it and apologized and also bought the bracelet.
When I did he said, "That's good luck." I'm thinking,"Great
and then I'm quickly off to the raft...On the way across the lake in the sky I see this dragon THE SAME ONE ON THE BRACELET"


2-My mother called me to let me know my brother had died
suddenly. It was the same 4 words I had heard YEARS EARLIER one day when I picked up the phone.
There was no one on the line when I answered just a sound like a bad connection and a voice that said the 4 words.
I was so freaked out when it happened I paced for hours
in the parking lot of a Target wondering what it could be.
You know, was someone playing tricks? That's not all. The NEXT DAY I came across an article on Rense.com about EVP.
I had never heard of it.

3-On the beach in Guam one night I looked up and for some unknown reason fixated on one star among zillions. It started moving then zigzagging? (see an earlier post of this same thing on this thread) across the sky.

4-I saw an object in the sky in Korea. It was a bright clear day. After watching it for several minutes and going, "No, definitely not a helicopter, not a balloon or balloons", etc..(After a few rounds of that I figured it had to be some kind of stationery satellite that was lowered for whatever reason, but
It was round and looked like it was "breathing."
The next day the news was all abuzz about a UFO sighting countrywide. [From Seoul to Jeju] They reported on the TV that video was to be sent to America for analysis...heard no more of it...

5-Have had lots of precognitive episodes and even a couple of times started to keep a diary because no one would believe it but for some reason they stop happening with any consistency so I just drop the idea of "recording."
Two conclusions:
1 Somehow intent interrupts the "flow"
2-Time "flows" backward as well. It's really the only way to explain precognition.

As a teen I saw a teenage girl in a holy roller meeting get "slain in the Spirit".
She went down between the pews and started wiggling around then she started moving like a snake beneath the pews.
I mean MOVING ACROSS THE FLOOR!
Her body was moving in ways the human body can't move!
I took double take, then a triple take then a quadruple take.... I could not believe what I was seeing.... full on demon possession no doubt.
Nobody else saw it... they were all too busy hoot-n-hollerin' to see what they'd called down.

My friends, sister and I went to a pond in the country, far from civilization, for a swim. There was a clear blue sky and was a beautiful calm summer day. Suddenly, hay began falling from the sky. It soon became big clumps of hay and the pond was covered in a layer of hay. It smelled nice, but it ended our swim. The rain of hay lasted for nearly 1/2 hour. We couldn't see where it was coming from because the sky remained clear and blue.
