The voice of something not human

We used to visit my grandparents in L.A. for Christmas growing up. The top floor bedroom of their L.A. home still housed the beds of my great grandpa and grandma. My parents would stay in these beds when we would visit for Christmas. The bed that was my great grandfathers had the stain from the wax he would wear in his hair still on the fabric cushion of the headboard. In his bed, no one could sleep in without the feeling like someone was standing over you watching you.

One more case to add to my cumulative list of people's paranormal claims.  With internet sharing and cable TV I have stories coming out of my ears.

Do you have any stories of your own?

I had an experience of requesting a prank from a known prankster spirit; Erik of Channeling Erik.

One day I called out for Erik to play a prank on me as these are his typical calling cards. I tried to keep a focus for a bit in my effort. Asked my deceased dad to give Erik a nudge too.

I experienced what I believe to be two pranks by Erik.

The first was my neck pillow I use when on the computer. It went missing and I tore the house up looking for it. And then there it was in the back seat of my car. I live alone and verified the only other person with a key was 100 miles away.

Of course my mind hounded for a normal explanation. Maybe I wore the neck pillow out of the house, realized it and chucked it in the backseat. Or somehow it just landed there when I went out with it on. However, with either of those explanations, the location in the car still didn’t really make sense.

I humorously called out, ‘Erik, is that you?’. No audible response of course.

A day or two later, I pulled my car into the same place in the garage and went to open the garage door to the house and it was locked. I never lock that door from the outside and it would have required a conscious effort against all my normal routine of doing things.

I then said ‘Thank you, Erik!’. I later learned that throwing deadbolts was a known prank of Erik.

A hard-core skeptic can doubt my honesty and competency and what can I say except that I believe these events are highly likely to be paranormal.

I’ll finish by reminding readers that one of Erik’s hallmark traits is harmless paranormal pranks. My story is one of so many.

 

Edit: The request for a prank was made while I for whatever hopeful reasons was using a ouija board by myself. Nothing happened at the time and I left the planchette in the middle. I waited to see if it would move. A day or two later I noticed the planchette a good foot  or more away from the center spot where I left it. Being an open-minded skeptic myself, I assumed I must have done it somehow. (I live alone with no pets). Again I actually suspect this was paranormal but I’m cautious. So, there were probably actually three incidents.

Thank you for your answer.  I am not a hard core skeptic.  I consider myself a rational skeptic that understands there are things we don't know, can't prove that are real.  I have had many experiences but based on your posts I don't recall you ever mentioning your own experiences to validate/justify your strong belief in all things paranormal.  I have had a lot of experiences and I have known a lot of people who make stuff up because they want to be special, that is where my skepticism comes from.  Not everyone is telling the truth when they claim they have had an experience.

I would hold the same beliefs even if I have never had a personal experience. My beliefs are based on my best assessment with all things considered. As I've said many times I believe the majority tell the truth about this kind of stuff and intentional liars make up only a small minority.

Well, there are some who may not be intentional liars, but mis interpret or mis understand the experience.

What an extraordinary pity that the plural of anecdotes is not data.  Let alone knowledge, let alone wisdom.

 

An understanding of society, culture, the limits of perception/memory, and most importantly psychology is the key.  Not running around and in the absence of any actual evidence, collecting bedtime/campfire tales.

A body of anecdotal evidence analyzed with all things considered can alter my understanding of how reality works. Observation (of the paranormal) can precede the scientific understanding is my position.

Sorry, but reading that initial post sounds to me like an entirely contrived story, done by a seasoned writer.

Obvious to me anyway.
