The paranormal is something I grew up with and thought for many years everyone saw what I saw. Confusion about the paranormal entered by life when I attended a parochial school and was told it either didn't exist or it was the work of the devil. However, a strong undercurrent of knowing there was something else, something more never left my subconscious mind.
About thirty years ago I had several interesting encounters that made me question and start to explore things beyond my traditional upbringing. As a result I took classes, did research, and read anything I could get my hands on pertaining to the paranormal. After all my investigation I believe there are many more dimensions and levels to our existence. There is something else and something more even though we can't always see it, feel it, hear it, or touch it. Because we're not aware of something on a conscious level doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
I find the study of the paranormal both interesting and fascinating, and at the same time normal and commonplace.
