Tis the Season

Tis the Season

March 26, 2015


While reading my emails I came across one   from a my reader I found very interesting. Her email was short and to the point. She asked me a question that I kept thinking about until I decided to answer her with this article. I wanted to ask you who read the articles of the paranormal what your thoughts may be too?  I will tackle Jo's email to the  best of my ability . Below find her email:

"Hi Chris,

I had a quick question for you.  (I'm a huge fan of your site, by the way.)   What do think of people who believe that they have an  ET soul?  In fact what do you think of ETs having souls in the first place?  Kind of like what Brad Steiger and Scott Mandelker  talked about?  Could that be possible? I believe they also call them Star seeds as well as  ET Wanderers.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.  Thanks so much!

Take care.
Jo "

When Jo sent me that email I had to laugh . If that was one of her quick questions I sure would not want to tackle one of her in depth ones!

I thought a great deal about her question and will do my best to answer her with my opinion of this subject.

It is not the first I have heard or read concerning this topic. It certainly is one however that requires a great deal of thought.

I realize that this topic can be digested by  both the emotional view and the logical view.

I believe those with a need for this to have a positive end point will bend to the belief that aliens do walk the earth for the purpose of helping mankind.

I also would think there are those who think aliens are walking this planet for nefarious reasons which include harm or destruction  to our species .

The view of logic is a more black and white road. This of course would have a yes or no answer . The one view would be that the idea of non human souls in human bodies is impossible and the other that if it is alien so is the body even if it looks human.

My opinion of this topic is a mesh of some of the views I have encountered as well as a rejection of  others.  I do believe that aliens walk this earth with us. I do however believe they are not human, do not have human biology and do not take over our souls . I think they have their own souls and I do not think swapping souls is as easy and simple as many people think it to be.

 I tend to not believe that aliens try to share our human bodies or inhabit them. I do think that there are aliens that  look very much like humans who are walking with us on this planet. I also think aliens can alter their appearance to appear human. I do not think however they move into or come in to our bodies in birth. I think souls are following a design in the universe that is meant to be. I tend to believe souls follow a line of experiences that end in a level of achievement for the soul .  It may well be that those living a human experience are on their way to a higher level however we are as humans still low on the ladder- soul and all.


It may be that those far more advanced are  far older members of our cosmos. I do not think they would want or need to experience the human soul experience as chances are their souls  already have. They may be much further along  in  their life energy's journey through space , time and dimension.

Aliens surely come in many forms. There is no reason why another species of life could not look very close to  us. If they are not exact to us I am sure it would be simple for them to change or adjust what they needed to in order to fit in with us.

I think there are other life forms living with us. They may look very human or be altered to fit in as well as walking among us in alien suits that look human . If a species is advanced enough to traverse space and time it is smart enough to devise a suit or robot covering that looks human for them to wander this earth with ease.
I do not believe it is very likely  alien souls replace human souls or take over human bodies.

It may be possible aliens have spliced or integrated with humans  creating a  hybrid. It could be aliens who abduct humans invade the biology of those taken with increased brain ability as a result. This would explain why many abductee's are extremely bright humans. I also believe it is likely that aliens plant  their views of our planet in the minds of those taken.  

If  hybrid human / aliens do exist I realize the immediate thought would be  their souls are part human and part alien.  I believe this  is unlikely. I think it more likely if this one soul would be the deciding life force making this being more human or alien . I doubt a soul can be split or homogenized . Of course I have no idea of knowing as I am merely a human and we are extremely primitive and  low level in our understanding of the universe. We do not understand our own planet very well. To think we could grasp a subject as complex as our life energy, our spirit or soul seems  far from our understanding at this point in time.

The only opinion I strongly hold is that  alien interference with the human species is for the aliens benefit. If they are here walking with us they are doing so for reasons of their own that have little to do with us. Humans are not overly important to aliens. They are involved with us for alien reasons and should never be thought of as God like or our saviors. 

Aliens may be here as a school study or to live among an ongoing experiment . They may be studying ancient civilizations and walk among us as we would if we could return to living thousands of years ago on this planet. For them living with us would be like our living with the cavemen or in Ancient Rome or Egypt.


I do not think we are being visited for the purpose of helping mankind. It is not the job of our visitors to fix our problems or interfere with our development. If  aliens were here for the benefit of mankind I believe we would be more advanced in whole as a society and far from the violent killing machines we seem to be, I would think we would be far more civilized if aliens were here to  interfere with our development. I do think they have been here for thousands of years and have taught us things along the way however the ways we advanced by way of alien visitation came about clearly due to the face it benefited the aliens while they used or visited our planet. Our evolution as living thinking beings is left to our own devices. Sadly we seem to be slow advancers staying stuck in war like thinking of those living on a unbalanced civilization where some starve and die while others prosper and live in wealth and luxury. Until we stop killing each other and have a more of a basic balance and control of our own planet we will remain the bottom of the ladder as far as our cosmic neighbors are concerned.

I would think that the universe and the experiences of the life forces in all things living in this universe are different and at many levels for many reasons. Knowing life starts in the human species  as an unexplainable injection of energy at the moment of human conception makes me believe that the universe, a intelligent massive controlling ultimate force that provides the energy or souls for whatever species or life form is being born in to this universe. In short all beings that live have some kind of soul that is needed for their experience of life in the space of our universe. The souls are most likely as different and varied as is the form of life however all life lives for reasons we are far from being able to fully understand.

The life forms exist in this universe on many levels and degrees of development as well as time alive in this universe making other beings or visitors far more advanced than human beings .  Knowing this we can understand why we may seem to those far more advanced more like  lab mice and test monkeys are to us. I agree fully with Stanton Friedman who answers when asked why aliens do not talk to us with the response " Aliens do not talk to us for the same reasons I do not talk to the squirrel's in my back yard!" 

As far as souls. I think we have our trip through life as a human with our  human level soul . We will move along to another place or existence when our time on this earth ends. There is no reason to not believe that alien life forms are also walking with their souls along whatever point of the journey their souls are meant to travel. It  may be  likely all our souls will travel many roads. I just think humans are a starting point and mankind a low level form of life in this universe. As far as swapping souls I believe we all keep our own souls and travel our own journeys no matter what species we may be.

Of course I  may be wrong about all of this. Until we advance enough to join those who are able to travel the stars we will have to wonder about many of these things.
I hope that adds another view to this topic . If enough of you send me alternate views I  will gladly compile and  present them  in a  future article . Remember the topics of the paranormal are simply unknowns we do not yet understand so please keep your thinking clear and reality based.  Hollywood and Sci- Fi  TV have already  done enough damage to all these topics. 
For now contemplate the possibilities and pay close attention to the souls who walk among us . Is that a human your talking to or is it an alien in a humans disguise ?  Look carefully and decide for yourself!

March 20, 2015



A  while ago I wrote an article about my adventure of investigating , with a bunch of my family members, the legendary Mt Misery Road here on Long Island , New York.

The road is known for  being haunted by way of  being a place with lots of old history including being the location of a civil war Hospital among other things.

For years people have been claiming to see ghosts along the road especially around the area of a very old cemetery

A handful of relatives and I  decided to take a trip along this road about a year or so ago and found it to be very interesting. The road is located in the middle of a very busy part of Long Island however stands out like a throbbing sore thumb as soon as you travel for a few minutes down the road and away from civilization. 

The area of this road has been preserved by old homesteads that  have become locked in time. The road and those around it are narrow  country roads lined with lots of open land belonging to the old houses that make up the area. There is a great deal of state owned property mixed in along the road making it very desolate and blocked from what the rest of Long Island has grown to be. 

Traveling down this road is like stepping back 200 years in history. Not only is it locked in a time warp it is also a very bleak eerie place that without question made my skin crawl. I did not enjoy my trip to this road or the area around it , in fact I could not wait to leave .

My family and I did not see anything we found ghostly during our first visit to Mt Misery Road and decided to track back to look at the old homestead of Walt Whitman in the area. When we reached the house we pulled over off the road to look in at the house and grounds. 

This was when two odd things occurred.   While looking at the house we heard an old time train whistle coming from the large state own preserve across from the house. My brother was in the back seat and commented that  there were no train lines in the area. We all thought it was odd but knew there could have been many reasons for hearing it including  the fact someone in the area may own an old  train whistle and uses it to call in kids or to announce the time. People do this kind of thing when living in a open country area.

The second thing to occur is a bit more confusing. As  my car full of family were all looking to the right side of the car towards the old homestead , I could feel something on my left and turned towards the driver's window where I was sitting. There right in front of my face an Asian man in a small black vehicle had driven right up to my window and was screaming at me. I did not hear him I watched him. His mouth was moving and his hands were over his head just raging at me.  I was stunned and said to the others in the car " What the ..?."  
I looked quickly towards my family sitting with me in the car to get their attention . It could have only been a second or two. I turned back to look at this crazy man to see only the back end of his car quickly pulling away. 

Again I turned to the others in the car asking if they had just seen that?  My partner in life was sitting next to me in the front in the passenger seat. He told me he saw the end of a dark vehicle driving off but nothing else. I tried to look in my mirrors to see where the man went. From where I was parked it was impossible to see  down the road. 

I pulled away and did a U turn to see if I could see where this odd man went. The road was empty in both directions . We decided to ride down the road as it was  impossible for his car to disappear from sight that quickly. We concluded he pulled in to a driveway. 

The man had no reason to be screaming at me as we were completely pulled off of the road and not blocking his passage. His rage  was strange so we wanted to see if he was a local who lived on the road and angry at our tourist behavior in his community

It became apparent once we started driving down the road that this man did not pull in to a close driveway or  another homestead as there were none. We drove up and down the road trying to figure out where this man disappeared to in his little black car who was screaming at us without sound or reason. I will never forget his rage or how although yelling at us we heard nothing. 

That event cured my need to visit Mt Misery Road. . I found the area depressing and the event with this strange man uncomfortable . I wrote about the event and forgot about it.

One of my sisters and her husband both work in medicine. They are science minded people who until proven otherwise keep a rather skeptical view of things considered unknown.

She told me once about a year ago that every now and then they use Mt Misery Road as a short cut across  Long Island to travel from the North to the South Shore. She told me it was very unusual due to the fact it is like stepping back in history and time and she was captivated to have a living view of what life was like a few hundred years ago. 

She did not mention this road to me since she told me that and I thought nothing about it - until recently.
My sister called me and told me she had a very strange experience with her husband driving along Mt Misery Road. She told me they were slowly making their way along the road as it was very overgrown in areas and the foliage was overtaking some of the already narrow passage the cars had  to travel along the old road.
My sister  told me her husband had her  pull off the road along the state land as a large branch was blocking most of the road and her husband felt it made for a dangerous obstacle and wanted to hop out and throw it back in to the woods. 

She said her husband was in the process of tossing the old limb back into the wooded area along the side of the road when out of nowhere ahead of them about 40 or 50 feet down the road  an Asian man appeared in the middle of the road. He was shirtless with black pants on. He was waving his arms at them and appeared to be angry with them.

My brother in law was a bit stunned for a second and stood and looked at the man. He  put up his hands in a no problem gesture and yelled down to the man " I do not want any problems buddy - just clearing the road. We are leaving now".

My sister's husband got back in the car  and told my sister to lock the doors and to keep driving. My sister hesitated for a moment as the man was ahead of them and frankly he frightened her.

The Asian man walked to the side of the street . Her husband thought he went back up his driveway and told her to simply stay in the middle of the road and drive on. He wanted to leave the area as to not upset the man any further. Obviously he was not completely normal  or he would not be shirtless or yelling in the road.

My sister started the car and gunned it down the road. They drove past the area the man was standing only to find congested woods on both sides of the road. They kept driving but did not come to another driveway or street for about a half of a  mile . They were confused about what they saw and found a police care once they drove back to the populated area and told him what had happened.

Of course the police were not interested but did agree to drive down the road to see if the man was harassing cars and drivers.

We have no idea if he did go or if he did find anyone or anything. I found their experience as odd as our own and think that Mt Misery Road  has yet another strange ghostly inhabitant protecting the area.

I told the story of what happened to my sister and her husband to my brother who is visiting me for the summer. He wanted to  take a trip over to that area to take some pictures of the old homesteads and history that is part of the area. I had little interest in returning but agreed to take a quick ride down the road so he could take his photos but told him anything at all odd and we were out of there.

The road remained as I had last seen it locked in the past and for me bleak and eerie. I do not like being there at all. 

My brother took the photos he wanted and we were leaving the area when he was drawn to a very old house that was abandoned sitting along  the side of the road.  He insisted I stop the car and we both got out of the car and stood directly in front of the old place.

I stood looking clearly at it and did not see anyone or anything around. It was extremely quiet around the old house. I noticed I did not even hear birds or the normal sounds of summer while I stood in front of the house. I did not like the house and it made me extremely uncomfortable.

My brother was captivated by the old place and kept taking photos of it. I finally felt so creepy at this old place that I got in the car and threatened to leave my brother there if he did not get in the car with me. He agreed the place had a bad feel and jumped in the car when I started to drive away.

Days went by before my brother decided to load his photos into his computer. When he did he sent me  a few photos with this question  " What is that in the upstairs window? Did you see anything when you were standing there?" 

I looked at his photos and quickly saw what he was questioning. There in one photo is how the house appeared to me when I was standing in front of it. I walked with my brother and stood next to him when he took the second photo which in time were only about 15 seconds apart  when he took them. I was looking at the house carefully both times and did not see anything.

It may  be nothing however on the one  photo it clearly looks like something is in the window second to the right on the second floor of this old house. I have no idea why this looks as it does. My brother does not think it is a trick of the light . I have no idea what to think. I will tell you I have no intentions of going back to find out.

 Photos taken that day with one below showing odd shape in second floor window that was not there seconds before.

My brother wants to return to take careful photos to see if he can capture anything else. I told him he is on his own . All I can say is that things are very odd on Mt Misery Road and I guess that is why is has the reputation as the most haunted road on Long Island.

Who Were Those Strange Tall Albino People or Should I Say What Were They?

 Who Were Those Strange Tall Albino People or Should I Say What Were They?

I was sent an email by a woman who lives on the end of  Long Island  New York at Montauk Point. She told me that she often walked her two large dogs on the beach along the Atlantic Ocean coast on the end of Long Island;  The woman told me that she often reads my articles and remembered one I wrote years ago about a strange tall very white odd looking family that lived on Long Island in the 1960s.

This lady told me that while walking her  two large dogs during the months of December and January she witnessed a strange family with a huge strange dog also walking on the beach. She told me they were extremely tall and seemed to be two couples of albinos with about four or five children with them running along the beach as the adults walked the dog. She told me she remembered my article and wanted to know if I had any other reports of this strange family being seen on Long Island.

I contacted the woman who told me she stopped seeing the strange group of tall albino people at the end of February. She told me she found them to be so very odd that she asked the people in the town shops and her friends and neighbors if they had seen the group. The only other person who claimed to have seen them was a older man who would feed the birds along the shore on the beach but he only noticed them once and did not recall ever seeing them again.

I questioned her and found the woman to be concerned about the people as she felt they were something other than human and felt very uncomfortable when walking near  them. She told me her large dogs who were very protective and a bit on the aggressive side would whimper and stick their tales between their legs dragging her away from the group refusing to stay close to the them which ended with her being dragged in a half run down the beach away from the strange group of people by her frightened protective pets.

In all the years (50 years since 1965) since my family and I  encountered the same type of tall albino looking people this was the first time anyone in my area ever talked about seeing them not only on Long Island but anywhere.

Below is the original article I wrote about these strange tall while blue eyed people. I wonder if they are being seen anywhere else in the world and if so who they are and where did they come from and where do they disappear to?

Below the original article about the strange Albino odd tall white people;


The Strange Case of the Albino Family- or Was It?
Years ago  I was sitting on my deck with my mother having lunch when my mother looked over to me and said “ Remember the Albino family that use to live in our area that always shopped at Gertz Department store?”

I hadn’t thought about Gertz Department store which had long ago gone out of business for years much less the Albino family.

My mother went on about how striking they were and how well dressed and groomed they were. My mother commented many times back when she saw them how beautiful the family was and always noticed what they were wearing. I never thought much about it then as I was in my teens but as my mother went on and on about the Albino family I realized how very strange they really were.

The family consisted of two adults and three children. All of them were albinos. I have only seen a few other people who have this albino condition and really did not note the differences in this family and the other albinos I have seen. Talking to my mother about this family I began to realize they were truly unusual people and not like other albinos.

The five members of this family all were 6ft in height including the mother and daughter. The male members stood between 6ft –3 inches to 6ft- 5 inches. They were extremely tall people. When they walked through the department store they stood a head above most of the other shoppers.

Each of them had thick full pure white hair. They were beautiful people with high cheekbones and straight model like features. Their skin was white – pure white. They all had the same color eyes, which were clear, big, and very light blue. They kept to themselves. They would stay together when they shopped and seemed to be quiet polite people.

It wasn’t until years later and I had that conversation with my mother about that family that I realized they were a very different group of people. I thought about the possibility of two beautiful albino people who looked so much alike in height, looks and facial features meeting and marrying. Although this is possible I knew the odds had to be nearly impossible. I then recalled reading an article while in college in the late 1970’s that talked about all the eye problems that went hand and hand with those who were albinos. I also read that eye color for the typical albino runs towards the pinkish reddish tint. I know that there are degrees of the condition which would have a lesser or greater effect on things like eye and skin color (or lack of it) in those who are albinos. I did not read about any who had clear big blue eyes.

I tried to find out if there were blue-eyed albinos that could run in an entire family but came up empty handed in my search. I am not qualified to answer the question to the chance of this happening but feel at best it would be a very rare occurrence.

I thought about this family and had to admit that finding two tall beautiful blue-eyed albinos who married and had three tall beautiful blue-eyed children was either an incredible happening or they were not a family of albinos!

 Years after discussing this family with my mother I came across a few articles on the Inter net that talked aboutthe tall whites. I was scrolling down one of the  pages of the site I was looking at when I came to an artists drawing of the alien species called the tall whites. I was completely taken back as I sat and looked at the same tall people with the same beautiful faces – white hair, blue eyes and high cheek bones as the albino family that use to shop for their clothes and house wares in Gertz department store in Bay Shore , Long Island , New York in the 1960’s.

I will never know if that strange gentle family of tall beautiful people was simply a very rare family of human albinos or if they were a group of entirely different beings?

I often wondered over the past years about that family or group of people. I have tried to search for them a few times but cannot find anything anywhere that would explain this odd group of people. Maybe they just moved away to another state- or planet!

I did learn to not be so ambivalent about things and pay attention to people and my surroundings far more than I once did. I wish I had been more curious at the time. I wish I considered how odd those people were and thought about things instead of just blindly skipping along without considering what was going on around me. I learned many lessons during my life. Being alert to my surrounding can be the most important thing I can do for my safety and that of my family. I will tell you one thing, if I ever see a group of tall white aliens again with those huge light blue eyes- I am going to pay attention!

The Ghost, the Doctor and the Psychic


I wrote this article about 7 years or so ago and would like to bring to you once again during the celebration of St Patrick's Day.  Each year when I enjoy my corn beef and cabbage  I think about my friend dancing her Irish jig around her Mothers grave and have to smile knowing this story has a good ending and came from a place of love .  I would like to dedicate this article to my friend Karen. Find her story below: Happy St Patrick's Day

The Ghost The Doctor and the Psychic

Sometimes knowing the people I do in my line of interests brings together situations that I could never imagine. This is one of those scenarios

I have a long time friend who is a doctor in Canada. She is a bright happy full of life woman who is always interesting to talk to and fun to be around. I think highly of her and know her to be a hard working trustful person of strong character.

She is unusual as she is not only a person of science but walks a path of strong spiritual beliefs and has an open mind to all things unknown. She has had events that are unexplainable in her own life and keeps an open mind when it comes to the world of the paranormal.

Last March I called my friend. She had moved and I had not spoken to her for a while and wanted to catch up on what was going on in her life and share what was happening in mine. We were at the end of our conversation when she said “ Oh let me tell you about the ghost in my new condo.” She was so matter of fact at first I thought she was joking.

She bought a new condo during Christmas time that just so happened to be about a two-block walk from the cemetery where her mother was buried. She would often walk over and place flowers or items that reminded her of her mom on her mother’s grave.

She told me that shortly after moving into her new condo she started to see a fleeting image of a man in her home. This shadow type image of a man would appear when she was busy doing something in her kitchen or sitting reading or watching TV. She would catch a glimpse of a tall thin man dressed in black cross a doorway or standing by her kitchen window. As she told me about this I felt uneasy and nervous however my friend was calm and matter of fact about seeing this image of a man that she talked as if it were a natural everyday occurrence. I asked her if she could have someone come in and cleanse her new home as the image could have been attached to the previous owners. I knew not to dismiss her sighting, as I know her well enough to know she would not mention it unless it was happening- often. She told me she would think about it and changed the subject to other things as we ended our call.

That phone call did not sit well with me. I could not stop thinking about her in that new condo with some ‘thing’ in there with her. I waited about ten days and called her again.

I did not waste any time in small talk and got right back to the ghost in her house. She told me that he was still there and that he now comes to her bedside at night and whispers her name in her ear. She could see his image which was a young man dark haired with a heavy Irish accent. I immediately started to panic. I wanted her to have someone come stay with her and to bring in people who could remove this spirit from her home. I had an extremely uneasy feel about the entire thing and really felt pushed to get her to take action to remove this spirit from her new home and life.

She told me she thinks she may have picked him up on one of her visits to the cemetery where her mother is buried. She said she realized it started after her last visit to place flowers at her mom’s grave.

The more we discussed this the more I sensed that my friend was far more concerned about this happening then she was letting on. She promised me she would not try to have a friend stay with her until this issue of the uninvited ghost was resolved. She also was going to try to contact a professional ghost hunter.

My friend was able to get her sister to come and stay with her for a while which added credence to this story as she too saw the ghost and also described him as a young man with dark hair dressed in black. She too heard his whispers and she too reported an Irish accent.

I wanted my friend to move out of the condo until this mans spirit could be removed from the house as his visits were becoming more frequent and his vision and words clearer as the days went by. I was terrified his energy was increasing and truly nervous for my friend’s safety. Both my friend and her sister were cautious but truly brave and stayed their ground unwilling to be chased from her new home. They were fearful of the ghost but not as much as I was. There seemed to be calmness about them concerning this haunting that I could not understand.

I know many unusual people due to the subjects I write about and decided to call one of my contacts and friends who is a strong psychic and medium. This woman was had strong beliefs about her abilities and would only use her gifts when she felt people were in trouble or when the messages were very strong. If she were unsure or uncomfortable she would refuse to use her abilities. I did not know what she would do but decided to set up a visit with her so I could tell her what my doctor friend was going through. I was hopeful she might have some advice.

I invited the psychic to lunch so we could sit and chat for a while. I took her to a favorite seafood place near my house. We no sooner sat down and ordered when my psychic friend looked at me and said “ So you are having a ghost problem huh?” I would say I was stunned but knowing this woman I knew she was picking up my strong concerns.

I told her most of what was happening to my pal in Canada when she stopped me dead sentence and said-“ She picked him up at the graveyard because she was doing something Irish in the cemetery. He was drawn to her as she represented home and followed her back to her condo.” She then went on to say that she could clearly see him and that he was a young Irishmen who died suddenly and did not want to face the fact he was dead. He wanted to return home to Ireland. She told me I was to go home immediately and tell my friend to call him by his name -Matthew, and tell him he had to go with her now and that she was to talk to him non stop as she walked him back to the graveyard. She told me to tell my friend she had to do this, as it was not safe to keep him in her home. She also instructed me to have my friend talk with him the entire way explaining to him that he needed to cross over and if he would follow the light to the other side he would then be able to find his way home to his beloved Ireland and family. The psychic told me he had been wandering that graveyard for years until he saw my friend do that “Irish thing”.

The psychic told me it was important I try to get my friend to listen to me and do this or things could become- complicated and dangerous. I had no idea if my friend would listen to any of this but decided to go home to call her and try to get her to at least listen to my psychic friends warnings and advice.

I called my friend in Canada and told her word for word what the psychic had told me. I did not know what reaction to anticipate as I was interfering and was afraid she would be angry.

My friend did not say one word while I spoke which was making me very uncomfortable and nervous I had over stepped my boundaries. I finally finished all that the psychic had told me and listened as only silence greeted me on the other end of the phone. I started to regret calling when finally my doctor friend spoke. “ I did a Irish Jig in the graveyard on St Patrick’s day for my mom.” Of course I replied with a “You did what?” She then told me that she went to the graveyard on St Patrick’s Day and brought green carnations and a big four-leaf clover that she set up around her mother’s headstone. She said she then talked to her mother as was her way and ended the visit by doing a wild Irish Jig right there in the graveyard as she had done for her mom every year on St Patties day.

She told me that the haunting started almost at once after that last visit. She also was stunned the psychic picked up that she had done that in the cemetery.

My friend agreed to do exactly as the psychic suggested. Along with her sister they immediately began to speak to the ghost using his name. They both told him over and over that he had passed over and had to cross over to the light to find his way home to the land and family he loved. The next morning the two sisters started breakfast talking to Matthew and talked non-stop about his need to cross over to find his way. They also told him he had to go with them and walked back to the graveyard talking all the way to the ghost they hoped was walking with them.

They walked him back to the middle of the cemetery where they told him one last time it was now the time for him to follow the light and cross over to where he wanted and needed to be. They talked of Ireland and his relatives who would surely be waiting for him on the other side. They told him he would be able to see his homeland and family once he walked over to where he needed to be. They talked and talked until they felt he was gone. They told Matthew he could not come home with them again and they left the cemetery and ran back to my friend’s condo.

It has been six months and so far Matthew has not returned and all the ghostly events have ended in my friend’s house. I recently talked to the psychic who told me the poor lad had found his way and was busy back in the green of his homeland. She had no doubts he would not return. The doctor is back to her normal self and her sister has long moved back to her own home.

I found the entire situation a walk into the unknown that will for me be another event that makes me shake my head in wonder how very much we just do not understand.
I have learned to listen with a open mind to those who have events I can not understand and also promised myself to never do a Irish Jig in a cemetery – ever.

Hit by Lightning Multiple Times plus Other Odd Events

A friend of mine told me  her father had been hit by lightning numerous times yet lived to not only tell about them but was never seriously hurt. Her Dad also had lost time experiences and a strange confrontation with a blue orb during his lifetime. He lived through all of these experiences yet refused to find anything odd about them living instead in a secure denial that his encounters were strange at all!

The mans family knew he was having experiences other people were not having but simply could not get the man to accept his situation . He would go to great lengths to find reasons why the things happening to him were perfectly normal .
The events in his life started when he was 15 years old. He was working on a construction barge located in the Atlantic Ocean during the 1930's. He was a water boy/ laborer on a work crew that was working on a project off of Long Beach New York.
The crew would be brought out by boat to a large floating barge where they would work until the end of the day when a boat would return to bring the workmen back to the dock at Long Beach on the coast of Long Island.
One work day the boy was late finishing his routine and the boat that returned the men to shore left early. The man , then a boy, became stranded on the barge. He was alone , he was 15 years old and a bit nervous knowing they would not send another boat out to the barge until morning.
He was able to take cover in a small cabin on the barge and knew he would have to make the best of the ordeal until the next day. He found a canvas and made a sleeping area inside the small cabin to stay until morning. That is all he remembers of his night alone on the barge. He recalls it was a clear night when he locked away in the small cabin but nothing more until he was being poked by the returning work crew early the next day.

When the work crew returned they found the boy half naked wearing only his work pants. He was confused and looked rather dazed. His shirt and jacket were found on the barge with his shoes. The clothes were burned and torn. His chest was bright red and he his hair smelled really bad, like sulfur. The returning work crew questioned the boy about  what had happened to him the night before. The only thing he could tell them was that he must have been hit by lightning . He thought he recalled a large bright light while laying in the cabin however he was not sure how he lost his clothes and shoes out on the barge while laying inside the cabin. The work crew looked around the barge for signs that he may have been hit by a lightning strike but found nothing usual besides the condition of the boy.

He recalled seeing a huge white flash the night before while laying on his make shift bed in the little cabin . That was all he could remember until the next day when   the men arrived to the barge and woke him up . His back and chest hurt like a slight sun burn where he seemed to have a light rash but that seemed to go away during the day.He remained dazed for the remainder of the day and complained of a headache. The men who worked on the barge found the entire scenario with the boy odd but blamed it  his behavior  on the fact he was 15 and did not think much more about it.

The man remembers feeling sick for about two weeks after the incident. His parents   blamed it on catching cold while being on the barge at night. The boy was convinced he had been hit by lightning even if it had been a clear night without any sign of a storm that night. Without a reasonable explanation or any interest by the adults around him the boys strange night on the barge was forgotten.

My friends father simply explains this strange night as the night he was first hit by lightning. Everyone who hears the story thinks it odd to be hit while under cover to the extent his clothes were knocked off . They also realize he may have removed them once hit and that he may have been in shock. The one fact everyone agrees on is that what happened on that barge to this man when he was 15 years old remains a   mystery.
My friends father continued to have odd events occur to him with a similar event happening when he was 21 years old in 1938. He was walking home alone late one night around midnight in Jamaica, Queens , New York along a quiet dark side street on a Saturday night in the summer. He recalls it was a clear lovely summers night . He had been out on a date and was on his way home from his girlfriends house when once again he saw a huge flash of pure light come at him. He recalls the light came from nowhere in a large arrow shaped ray . It hit him directly in his chest. He was lifted in to the air and then blacked out. When he woke up he found he was laying on the ground about a block away from where he had been when the flash of light hit him.  His shirt and pants were ripped and burned to the point he was nearly naked. His shoes were nowhere to be found. He had a terrible headache and red rash circling his entire neck completely around his head. His pocket watch was missing and his hair on one side of his head around his ear looked as if it had been shaved or burned to the point of looking like a crew cut on that side of his head.

He managed to find his way home barefoot and frightened. When he finally made it to his home he was stunned to find it was after 3 in the morning. He realized he must have been knocked out and laying on the ground for about three hours.

The next day the man and his two brothers went back to see if there were signs of a lightning strike and to look for his watch and shoes. They found no signs of lightning striking the area or any of his possessions.

The family was concerned as it had been a beautiful clear night that night making a lightning strike highly unlikely. The man was insistent that was what occurred and would not consider any other possibilities. He was not burned in any way . The only complaint he had was of a terrible headache that lasted about two weeks. His mother insisted that he see the family doctor. The doctor could not find any visible sign of being hit by lightning. The doctor also told the family that anything powerful enough to carry him a block away, destroy his clothes and knock him out for three hours would have left some type of marks or burns, or more likely would have killed him.The man insisted there was nothing funny going on and he has simply once again hit by stray lightning.

The man continued having other odd experiences during his life time although most of his life seemed normal and he seemed to be a level headed normal man. He married and had a family leading a ordinary life in most all ways.  

Besides the strange lightning events the man encountered other odd happenings during his life. 

 He had a few lost time events that he would explain away as falling asleep while driving . If he was sleep driving it was an incredible feat as he would drive a few hundred miles sound asleep to find himself waking up in his car hours and miles away from his original destination. One odd event in this mans life was an encounter with what he referred to as ball lightning

This event occurred in the 1970's. The man and his wife were sitting in their backyard eating lunch at the large family wooden picnic table that sat under one of the yards big shade trees. The couple sat talking while enjoying their lunch when a ball of blue light the size of large truck tire entered the yard. At first the ball of light  hovered adjacent from the couple sitting at the picnic table on the opposite side of the yard. The couple sat in awe looking at this thing for a few seconds until it began to circle the yard.

The large orb of light circled the yard much like a ball swirls around inside of a roulette wheel. As it continued to circle the couple snapped to their senses and became frightened . The man told his wife to get under the big wooden picnic table as he felt they were too far away to make it to the house. He looked for something to defend them with and grabbed a yard shovel leaning against the tree. The man got a good grip on the shovel and steadied himself against the table ready to hack away at the light if it approached the table that now had his wife hiding underneath it.

He watched in amazement as this ball of bright neon blue light continued to circle the yard. He tried to figure out what it could be and once again came to the conclusion it was some type of odd ball lightning. The sky was crystal clear, there was not one cloud in the blue summer sky however he could not think of what else this thing could be. The ball of light began to slow its pace which gave the man hope it would soon dissipate or lose its energy and disappear.
Instead the ball slowed to a stop, hovered in the corner of the yard before changing direction to head straight at the man, his wife and that big old wooden picnic table.The man now knew something was really wrong as he never heard of lightning standing still or changing direction.

He leveled his balance to ready for a fight and held his shovel like a bat getting ready to swing as this blue ball of light hurdled towards him. He watched in horror making ready to swing as this thing aimed straight at him. He bent at the waist knowing his first swing better be a good one. The ball of light came at him and just before impact the man threw his body into the swing and hit the orb of light just before it was able to impact him . My friend's mother still under the table was shaking and crying as she watched this thing coming towards her husband. She watched him make ready and take his swing at the thing as it rushed at them . She heard the shovel make contact with the orb and heard a explosion accompanied by a large flash of blinding white blue light.

Her husband had smashed the orb of blue light as hard as he could hitting it dead center with the shovel. It exploded in a loud crack that hurt their ears. The thing broke apart into millions of blue sparks somewhat like a display of fireworks. The sparks flew all over the yard. The man pulled his wife from under the table to start a run towards the house. As they ran to the back door of their home they watched at the far end of their yard as this thing collected what looked like the tail of a comet . The pieces that were shattered all over the yard by the smack with the shovel were pulling together in what looked like a comet heading away from them and their yard
They watched as the thing took off in to the sky at an incredible speed until it was gone .

My friend talked to her father after this event and tried to convince him that something strange had been following him during his entire life with odd events and strange encounters that simply could not have been constant lightning strikes. My friends father passed away about ten years ago. My friend was never able to get her father to talk about these events without becoming upset and annoyed . The family felt it best not to press him on something he found so upsetting . The family knew something very odd was going on with their father but to this day have no idea what it could have been.
I talked about this man and his life experiences with a few people I thought may have some ideas what could have been causing his odd encounters.
One idea was that this man may have some extraordinary connection with the electricity around him or even the plasma in our universe. He may attract energy like a lightning rod. I was also asked if he was located near any electric poles or large transformers or high tension wire centers during his events? The answer was no.
Since he never seemed to suffer any obvious physical harm the idea any human could endure that many hits by lightning seemed somewhat impossible.
I questioned my friend concerning the locations of her father's events . She told me that the first one was in out in the Ocean on a barge so no wires were involved there. The other encounters were not near any type of high tension wires that she knew of.. The orb incident happened in the back of her parents home that was about 1000 feet away from the street where the normal residential utility poles are located.

I have no idea what was happening to this man. I have no clue why he had these strange things happen to him during his life. His experiences could have been caused by some type of abnormal relationship with energy . It is possible he was a rod for energy and attracted lightning. I would feel more comfortable considering that possibility if the events occurred when there was some sort of storm going on at the time they occurred. In the case of this man each event happened on beautiful clear days or nights. I understand that strange lightning can develop at any time and that he may have had a relationship to it that the rest of us do not have.

I have to admit that it has crossed my mind that this man was a victim of abduction during his life. The fact that he was never harmed by any encounter in a way people usually are during lightning strikes is odd. So is the fact he had his clothing blown off of him in the intensity of the hit. Of course the lost time involved in the man's experiences rings a loud alarm bell in my mind. I also find his lack of memory a fact that leans me towards abduction possibilities.
I know this man refused to believe any idea other than the one he came up with for his strange happenings. He really wanted to believe he was hit over and over during his life by lightning. Maybe he was. I have no idea what happened to him but do know you cannot fight lightning with a shovel or watch it hover and decide to change course to attack you!

I have to wonder how many other people out there have had similar events happen to them or a family member and go along thinking it was just a normal day with a little lightning hit along the way! How many others are out there who  are encountering the unknown with strange events and never mentioning it ?

It is obvious that many things happen out there that never are reported by people all over the world. I want to remind all of my readers to be careful out there and always pay attention to your surroundings. If you think something is wrong follow your instincts and protect yourself . You never know when it will be your day to pick up a shovel , or find a way to face off with something you find completely unknown!

Lastly I have to admit that I have lied about part of the story above but have decided to be completely honest about the strange events this man encountered. I know without question that the events I have just told you are absolutely true as the man in this story was not my friends father. The man was my father. My Dad, and he was a victim of the unknown this I know is true
