What a lovely story. Even if you're not that size now, it must be a beautiful memory. Thank you for sharing it with us. Sorry not to have answered more quickly but I didn't notice the posting.

Welcome to the paranormal group and please come and join in the chat thread.

Hello, just joined. I guess the story I can think of most is when I was getting married, all sorts of unusual things happened. Unfortunately, my mom, who passed on peacefully one year before at home, would not be present to share my day. Buying the wedding gown became more of an issue than I had ever anticipated. I had a most popular and specific dress in mind for the wedding and, as a many to-be brides, I got it into my head that it was the only one for me -- never even imagining it would be unavailable.

At that time, there were chain bridal stores in the malls where I went. It turned out that the dress was being sold by the store, but just not available in my size -- a 9 at the time (no longer see those days!!!). Anyway, the astute saleslady called all the other stores and found none in that size and said no more were coming in before my wedding day. She candidly told me that she was so sorry, but because of its popularity and the fact that sizes 7-9 were the most sought after, she was sure that I would be unable to get this dress and advised me to look for a different one. I gave her my telephone number in case and left dejected. About a week later, she called me and in a quizzical yet disbelieving voice said, "You must have an angel on your shoulder - we just got a size 9 in that dress - do you still want it?!!" To some, this will sound silly, but I remember thinking, "thanks, mom...I know you are still with me."

Hi Ariel,

Just noticed your post down here. Not freaked out at all. We have other people who do similar jobs too, lol. Not me, I'm just an interested party with some experiences. On the chat groups at the top of the page we get regular updates so if you have some tales to tell I'm sure we would all like to hear them.

Hello- my name is Ariel. I am 59. Mother of 2. Married 20 years. I live in East Texas.

I have been interested in the paranormal as long as I can remember. I saw my first spirit at the age of three and have never been scared. I am a working psychic medium and channeler. I read oracle cards, tarot and runes. I also do dreamwork and energy work.

I look forward to talking and meeting others. I hope that my honesty doesn't freak anyone out.

Hi Sally,
I've only seen 'dead people' a few times looking directly at them. Usually, I feel an unwanted presence first, with my hair standing up and feeling the presence around me. It's random.

When I fluff, I no-longer try to avoid what's present. I've learned to slowly look around until I see what's causing it. I can watch spirits when looking at them using my peripheral vision.

Once seeing them, I will engage verbally. They nearly always seemed surprised that I can see them. The ones that have spoken back to me, have been threatening...each one.

I know once I give my spin on what I believe I'm encountering, most won't agree with me. I'll write it up as it's own entry later.

Hi Stubby,

Welcome to the team. I noticed on one of the other threads you experience seeing dead people. I and I'm sure others, would love to hear about some of your experiences. When you see someone is just random or is someone trying to tell you something?

Hello Amy, welcome back to SparkPeople and we're happy to have you join the team. I live in Oregon but grew up in Ohio in the Cleveland area, moved to Denver when I got married (bless the military) and lived there until about two years ago when my husband and I retired to a farming community northwest of Portland. So I also share the Buckeye connection. We're a fluid bunch, usually pretty lively. Please feel free to jump in on the General Chat thread.

Hey, Amy, welcome back! And welcome to the team, I'm so glad you joined us! I'm from Ohio, too, so it's always nice to see another Buckeye join up! Lots and lots of best wishes in your weight loss endeavors, I've been on sparks since (I think) around 2008. I hope you'll jump into the main chat thread and tell us more about yourself!

Hello Heather. I agree it is hard to find people who truly have similar interest. I like most of us on this team believe in spirits, or have experiences of their own. Welcome.

Welcome, Mary, so glad you joined us! Oh heck yeh, please share your experiences with us, we LOVE that! And congrats on doing so well with your weight loss, too, gotta love those holidays, eh? (not.....lol) You'll find all kinds of threads here with boatloads of stories, information, links, etc., altho it can be a little tedious skimming thru them all because there are so many of them, but maybe you'll come across someone else who's had similar things happen to them. The paranormal thread is a good place to start, and where we usually post our out-of-the-ordinary occurrences, etc. but we also have threads re: UFOs, NDEs, dreams, astrology, monsters, fairies.....the list is almost endless. LOL I think at one time or another, we've discussed darned near everything in this team, but it sure makes for a LOT of different threads. But we are so happy to have all of our new people and please feel free to drop into the main chat thread and hop into any of the conversations going there, or to start new ones!

Hello Mary, welcome to the team. If you're looking for other peoples' experiences and/or a place to post your own, please put them on the threads created for them. The Chat thread is just that, most of us talking about daily living and you're always welcome there too. We will look forward to reading your stories and hopefully someone will be able to help answer your questions. Carol

emoticon Hi! I'm Mary, 63, and recently came back to SP just to help keep my maintenance in gear during the (!!) holidays, which are always awash in all kinds of traditional treats, aren't they? Yikes! Anyway, I lost 80 lbs. about five years ago, mostly by tracking my food intake with some fitness software (FitDay). Spark has an equally good - if not even better - food-tracking system, though.

Over the years, I've had some odd experiences I can't explain - unusual coincidences and some phenomena after my dad's death that have always defied any sort of usual, "everyday" cause-and-effect explanation. I wanted to join this team to see if others had had such experiences, and what the nature of their reports or reflections might be.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone better :)

Welcome to the team, Heather, so glad you decided to join us! I am so jealous, you've actually been to that old pen in Mansfield? My daughter and I were talking about going there sometime, I actually have an old friend who worked there before they shut it down. They finally tore down the old pen in Columbus, didn't they? That was a creepy place just by existing. LOL We took the kids there once back when they used to do the Halloween tours thru the place, it was a ton of fun. So did you find anything during your investigations at OSR? You'll have to drop thru our paranormal thread and tell us about that, that would be really, really interesting! I am also a Buckeye, as are two of our other team leaders and one other team member, so there are a few of us here.

Hello everybody, I've been a member of this team for some time now but have not had any notices of activity on this thread for many months and didn't realize how many new folks we had. Mea culpa! So I'm just introducing myself - yes, somewhat late, sorry - to say I hope you find a place to fit in here. The stories of our paranormal adventures are on other threads and I hope you will be checking them out. I am 69 and have been involved in paranormal activities since I was a teenager. I have had my share of ghosts and poltergeists over the years but my special interests are past lives and regression along with astrology. I live in Oregon now but was in Colorado for 46+ years and grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area. I'm looking forward to getting to know more of you.

Hello! I'm Heather & I'm from Ohio-Columbus particularly. I've been on SP for about a year & just recently decided to check out Teams :) I've been on a few investigations at OSR (Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio) and would love to do more. It's just not always easy to find people with the same interests/gifts to pursue it. Either way it's nice to find a team that is like minded.

I gotcha, on the expense of WW....I did them for awhile, too, and it does work, but geezy pete, that monthly charge just gets kind of ridiculous after awhile. This weight loss stuff is such a huge racket, and they're always coming up with the **latest and greatest thing** and of course, people just flock to it, til the next new thing comes along. We are so gullible. LOL I think that's why I appreciate sparks.....they provide you with so many tools and so much info, etc. and they're not out to make a killing at your expense. Kinda nice to find a weight loss site that does not come across as nothing more than a money-making gimmick.....

I know!! The first few times I tracked my food on here, I was appalled. I'd long since lost any real sense of what a 'normal' portion was, for darned near EVERYTHING. There is a LOT to digest, here on sparks......so many articles, etc. Lord have mercy...it's easy to get addicted to it at first. LOL You know what one of my biggest surprises was, after joining up here? (and this is probably a really dumb thing to have stick in my memory, but.....lol) I'd never really 'differentiated' among veggies, in my head.....to my way of thinking, ALL veggies were 'good', etc. I never stopped to think of the calorie factor, or nutrition factor, of any of them, before joining up here. I fixed dinner one night and decided to have corn....I took my usual helping size, which was probably a good cup and a half, maybe. When I went to track my meal that night, I was like, "HOLY SH!T".....that cup and a half of corn ate up a huge portion of my calorie intake for the day, I was horrified. LMAO I had NO idea how many calories the 'starchy' veggies could contain. The whole thing was a huge eye opener for me when I first started. LOL But welcome aboard, I'm glad you found sparks and our little team, and hope you have a great day, also!

There are a LOT of threads in here you can read, about all different topics, so enjoy cruising those, if you'd like, even tho it might take awhile. Please feel free to drop into the chat thread at any time and for any reason, it's where we kinda discuss darned near everything under the sun (usually other than weight loss, a lot of times....lol) and if you happen across anything that seems interesting, feel free to share, we love that. Best of luck to you in your weight loss endeavors, I hope that goes really, really well for you, and we're tickled pink that you decided to join us! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome, Jean, I'm so glad you decided to join us! I'll echo Sally re: your stories, I hope you'll post them, we LOVE them! There are just never, never enough ghostie stories, I've actually been cruising online looking for some to read about the past couple of weeks. I am so glad you jumped into the chat thread and I hope you'll become a regular contributor. Our team is probably a bit different from a lot of the ones here on sparks, in that it is mostly a social forum, not so much concentrated on the sparky stuff....I think that is disappointing to some sparkers, and I'm sorry for that, but it's just the way the team has evolved over time. Our one team leader, Dawn, always pulls us back to the sparky endeavors, tho, when we fly too far off course. LOL

A big welcome to the team, Ginny, I am so glad you decided to join us! And I hope you'll feel free to drop into the main chat thread any time that you'd like, also. There's a few of us who just ramble on about all different kinds of things and we always appreciate more feedback or comments, even if it's about nothing in particular, it's just great whenever anyone contributes. Seems the ghosties are kinda sporadic, kind of feast or famine....either we have a flurry of comments in the paranormal thread, or pretty much none. Darn those ghosties. LOL But it's always fun when someone has something happen to post about, for sure, so if you've ever had any experiences or stories to tell us about, or even just have some question, I hope you'll post 'em, that'd be awesome. And there are a LOT of threads about UFOs, NDEs, all different kinds of things for you to go back and read if you want to (and have about a year free to get thru them all....lol). No dearth of information here, altho a lot of it might be kinda old but still relevant. But welcome aboard!

Hello. My name is Ginny,. I have never had a full experience but it is not from the lack of trying. Everywhere I go, I stop for the local haunted tours, visit haunted attractions, and spend a lot of time watching the ghost hunting shows. I have met a few of the TAPS team members as well. I don't know why but I have always had a fascination with the paranormal since I was a child. Looking forward to reading people's experiences and chatting with like minded folks.

Welcome to the team, Yvonne! We are so happy you decided to join us and please feel free to share your experiences with us, we would LOVE that!!! And don't ever hesitate to jump right into ANY conversation going in any of the threads here, it's GREAT when people do that and we would welcome that with open arms. So many times people come briefly, post once or twice, and then we never hear from them again and that always makes us sad. So I hope you will become a regular here, that would be awesome! And sparks is a great place, with oodles of tools to help you on your weight loss journey, I wish you nothing but success with it all!

Welcome, Robin! I love this stuff, too, and it's so nice to have a forum to discuss it all, it's really interesting. Just dive into any of the conversations that are going, we've got the main chat thread, the dream thread, the paranormal.....and if there's an older thread that is interesting to you, post in them, too. I think there's some relating to UFO's, all kinds of stuff, it's been a long time since I've peeked back thru the old ones. Don't ever feel like you are intruding....I know some people don't dive into conversations 'cause it already seems to be going strong and they hesitate to jump in. Please jump in! LOL

I sold papers, groceries, newspapers and magazines, sweets and anything else that might be needed twenty miles or so from the nearest supermarket. I also ran the Post Office for the area as well. A sub-postmistress or sub-postmaster is the job title for the person running the PO. emoticon

HI! My name is janis. Im 25 and have been interested in the paranormal for a VERY long time. When i was younger it frightened me to no end. Now, not so much.

I used to have a lot of experiences in my teenage years, A LOT! But they have died down a lot unfortunately.

My name is Angie - go by Ang. I am 65, married for 10 years to a now retired elementary teacher. I am still working - though debate often whether I should retire and enjoy some of my hobbies or work a little longer. I have two boys -8 grandchildren. Hubby has two boys and a girl and 7 grandchildren. In my free time, I am illustrating a children's book and hope to send it out for publishing soon.

Paranormal - see it, live it daily. I am very intuitive and attract that sort of thing - see and hear and sometimes smell things all the time - all my life. My wonderful husband has witnessed it and freaked him out a bit, but he remains open to my quirks and allows me to be true to myself. I grew up with parents who made me stop talking about it in fear other people would think I was mentally ill, or that they were bad parents. So being open about it as an adult has only been to my closest friends and within the past few years to others if the opportunity arises.

Hello, my name is Sally and I think I must be as backwards as Krissy as I have been on the the other forums too. I'm 63 and retired. I worked as a Registrar for Births, Marriages etc for over 17 years and also as a sub-postmistress for ten years.
I have 2 sons and their partners and one daughter who sadly passed away last year. I also have six grandchildren and one great grandson, born last December. A very nice lady said I looked too young to be a great grandmother. My dearly loved husband laughed.
I've battled with my weight for over forty years but now I have decided that this is the time for me to do something about it.
I love reading all the different posts and I will try to contribute. Like most of the recent posts I have seen, I don't really know very much about the paranormal. I have had a lot of unusual "events" over the years and as I live in the supposedly most haunted village in Scotland I have a few stories of hauntings etc.

I want to thank all of you for posting here and introducing yourself . As you can see , our 'General Chat Thread ' is most popular . So please join us there ! Plus let us know if you've posted some where in one of our threads in the General Chat Thread because not everyone gets notifications of when someone posts in other threads on our team.

I am looking for help from our members , if you have a gift or have worked in the paranormal field I could use your help to improve our team with you insight / knowledge into our topic. I myself have none , only the belief that the paranormal world is real.

Hyacinth,

Hello
I just joined as I thought this group would be fun! I do believe in the paranormal and have had some interesting things happen to me. I am 42, married to my high school sweetheart, with 2 children. A month ago I was pretty down. I had lost all of my confidence and social skills as I just wanted to hide away. I was embarrassed over my weight and felt like such a failure. On January 1, I stepped on the scales, had a good cry, and the decided I had no where to go but up! So, I found Plexus (which I LOVE), and am eating healthier, and more active. I have lost 16 lbs and have more energy than I know what to do with!

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello I am married and we have a little girl. I am working on getting healthy for myself and my family. I want to be around and also to be able to play with my little girl without getting so tired. When I was looking around Spark People I was happy to find this group. I have seen ghosts and most of my family have seen ghost too. I will added my stories to the group so others can read them too.

Hi, I'm new to the team. I have been a paranormal field investigator for about 15 years, with groups in 2 different states. My favorite thing to do is EVP, as well as using the camera. I currently live in a house built in 1750 in Massachusetts. There is a lot of activity almost on a daily basis in the house. Fortunately, most of it is friendly, and they even play 'games' on us, much to my delight. There is nothing 'dark'. The most unfriendly thing is the grumpy man upstairs, who keeps all visiting guests awake. We have resorted to sleeping in that room when people visit as no one else will anymore, once was enough for them. He clearly wants no one in there. But it is a happy house, just active. Anyway, I've had many experiences in my life, even before this current house, I love reading the messages others have posted here, especially about the pets.

Welcome, Tricia! We are so glad you joined us! There are a LOT of stories in the threads and we've talked about most everything in this group. I have learned a lot from it, some of the things I had never heard of prior to joining up here, so it's been really enlightening for me thru the years. I hope you'll drop thru the chat thread so we can get to know you better and feel free to post any stories of your own in the other threads, too, we always love to hear everyone's stories, for sure!

Hello Everyone,

I was surprised (in a pleasant way) to find this group on SparkPeople. I love paranormal stories. Mostly into ghosts and hauntings. I am a amateur ghost hunter. I rarely get to go out on investigations. I would love to join a local group, but I have had a hard time finding people who take it seriously enough. Or if they do take it seriously, they don't want someone with so little experience.

Anyways...I can't wait to read all your stories, and make new "paranormal" friends.

Are there a lot of places around San Antonio that are haunted? I would like to hear more about that, if you have gone to any of them, that would be great!

I have always been interested in the paranormal. I love ghost stories and learning about hauntings. I live in San Antonio Texas and old city with lots of old ghost. It's wonderful being surrounded by other worldly beings. The nice ones make you feel at peace.

Welcome to the team, Carol, I am so glad you joined and really looking forward to your posts! I am sorry you are no longer a Buckeye, I have been looking for someone who can do that regression hypnotherapy. LOL Dang....a day late and a dollar short, story of my life. LMAO I am really interested to hear what all you could maybe teach us about astrology. I took an astrology course via the Edgar Cayce foundation this past summer and I have to tell you, I was freaked out....I mean, it hit me right between the eyes. I have always kinda pooh-poohed astrology in general, but only because the only contact I really ever had with it was a stepmom who swore by those little Dell pocket astrology books and bought a new one every year for all of the family members and took whatever they said as gospel truth. I found out really quick that they say a LOT of derogatory things about Capricorns and I paid the price for every 'failing' spotlighted in those little books, whether they were the least bit accurate or not. LOL So I grew up pretty much detesting astrology in general, as a result of that experience. I always discounted the accuracy of it all the way around.....until I took the Edgar Cayce course. OMG.....I was horrified. LMAO I mean, that thing was so eerily accurate it actually discombobulated me. It felt almost intrusive, to discover that someone who knows how to do that can 'know' me so well, and even better than I know myself, it gave me a really weird feeling, I ended up not contributing to the class for the final week because I was so disturbed. Until then, I had no clue how intricate of an art that really is, I gained a whole new respect for it.

Anyway, I have sent off for a past life regression CD offered by a lady named Nancy Canning (I think), who is a past life hypnotherapist. I have been told both via my horoscope and via a reading I had done in the past that some of the emotional baggage that I carry in this life is a result of 'debris' from a past life, and that if I do not resolve it, I will remain handicapped and not able to fulfill my full potential. I dunno if that's true or not, but it was interesting enough that I am choosing to explore it.

But feel free to drop into the main chat thread, would be awesome to have more people posting in there, and please share your stories in whatever threads you feel are appropriate. Welcome to the team!

My name is Carol and I've lived with ghosts and spirits and the paranormal since I was about 7 or 8 years old - and I'm now 67. I am also a trained regression hypnotherapist and have practiced astrology more than 30 years. I have almost always had spirits in my home and found them to be friendly and protective. I grew up in Parma, Ohio (Cleveland area, hi to fellow buckeyes) but have lived in the Denver area for 44 years. Your stories on just this first page are wonderful to read. When I have more time I'll come back to read more. I'll also share some on the other threads for this team. I have been working at my weight loss nearly a year and have dropped 20 pounds so far. It's slow going at this age but I'm definitely healthier. I have another 25-30 to go. And yes, tracking truly helps. I'm glad to find a place on Spark where I can share these experiences and the stories of others.

Carol

Thank you 2 Be. I have seen on here where people posted you must comment every day for your membership to be taken seriously and I just have been having trouble finding anyone to chat with. Ha Ha...I have spent enough time feeling like I'm talking to myself already. Actually I have just been having trouble finding my way back to where I had commented before so I can see if anyone said anything to me and now I discover I can just check my email and go from there. Whew...THAT makes it easier by far! I think it was the Paranormal chat thread that I blurted out a huge chunk of myself but I think it said to tell your stories on there. And boy do I have a lot to share! I look forward to many conversations in the future.
