The truth is out there. I plan to get to the bottom of things with all of you Pandas at my side, no matter what happens. After psychic medium and empath Melisa Gillett started a thread sharing what her grandson told her, people on the social networking site shared eerie and downright scary things that their kids have said. We are about to enter the realm of real-life ghost stories.
I hope that you will feel the same way as I was reading through the posts about kids possibly having the 6th sense and I was so scared that I couldn’t sleep. Do you own a flashlight, teddy bear, and safety blanket? Are there any Dementors that might ambush us on the way down? Let’s go deeper into the files.
We reached out to Jane Kuepfer, the Schlegel Specialist in Spirituality and Aging at Conrad Grebel University College, to learn more about spirituality and the big questions in life. “Spirituality is simply a reminder that there is more to life than we perceive at first glance. It is about our connectedness—to ourselves, others, nature, the transcendent. Religion can be a way to access and express the spiritual dimension of life, but all of us have the capacity to perceive life as spiritual, regardless of religious identity.” Read on for Kuepfer’s other insights.
According to Kuepfer, people like to believe that we can control life by putting its inboxes. “Science has become the religion of our age—it is what we have learned to trust to explain life. But much of the wonder of our experience is beyond explanation. Spirituality allows for mystery, and for life/’God?’ to be bigger than we can get our human minds around,” she said.
As time goes on, Kuepfer believes our spirituality may increase rather than decrease. “In my opinion, if humanity continues to flourish, we will be growing in the direction of greater openness to spirituality, to wonder, to possibilities beyond what we can contain and control. Spirituality invites us to seek and discover meaning and purpose in life, so I hope we won’t deprive ourselves of it any time soon.”
At the time of writing, the thread had over 185.8k tweets. It is easy to say that a lot of parents have been in situations where their kids scare them with what they say.
There have been many attempts to prove the presence of the supernatural. There are books like ‘Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today’. They tried to systemically approach and verify ideas about life after death by analyzing children’s stories.
“Eminent scientists explain how many of these children’s stories have been followed up to verify whether their statements have any foundation in fact. Incredibly, when subjected to scientific investigation, children’s memories about their past lives can invariably be confirmed in every detail,” the book’s blurb explains. Everyone is a bit of a skeptic. You begin to see things that can’t be explained by logic alone.
It’s incredibly difficult to get solid evidence about the existence of ghosts and spirits, and there are lots of conflicting accounts between people.
It’s true that far from every story. There are a lot of people who prey on people’s grief and are looking to make a quick buck. Even if they sometimes fail, there are genuine psychics, spirit mediums, and exorcists who aim to help people. Accepting them word-for-word would be just as unfair as completely discounting their experiences.
There are a lot of small signs that the supernatural might be normal. If you promise not to tell anyone else, I will let you in on a secret. Like most of my family members, I have had prophetic dreams about small snippets from everyday life that eventually turn out to be true. You could say that it’s someone’s brain short-circuiting, but I’ve tested my dreams, again and again, to make sure I’m not making things up.
My conclusion? I am still waiting for my letter to go to school. There is no doubt in my mind that there is something deeper in life that science hasn’t been able to catch up to yet. There is something weird going on with the Weave of Time! It’s up to you whether or not you believe me. I know that some of you may be in the same boat as me. You can share your own stories in the comment section.
A strong sensation that an event has happened before has been associated with temporal lobe epilepsy and neurological anomalies related to electrical discharge in the brain. This doesn’t account for the fact that some of us have dreamt the scenes days, weeks, and sometimes months in advance.
There was no correlation between the two, but scientists tried to link it to mental disorders. There is a possibility of a genetic link. The genes on the 10th chromosome are being studied because some of them are associated with a form of epilepsy.
According to Scientific American, a study found that the areas of the brain involved in decision-making were activated after scanning the brains of 21 participants. This suggests that our mind is capable of resolving conflicts.
“They interpret this result to mean that déjà vu could instead be a result of our brains conducting some form of conflict resolution. In other words, our brain checks through our memories like a rolodex looking for any conflict between what we think we’ve experienced versus what actually happened to us.”
In the future, scientists will discover a lot of hidden truths about the world that we felt were real but could never prove with hard evidence. But what do you think? Which of these spooky stories did you like the most? Do you have any similar stories to tell? Do you think we should call Sam and Dean from Supernatural?
