Was My Short Story A Premonition?

I’ve been talking about this short story that I want to write for the last few days about a 9-year-old Indigo child named Henry who has a premonition about the future.  His premonition is something that actually happened to me but with some exaggeration to make it a Halloween story.

Originally it was about a boy named Henry, his parents and his brother who is 2 years older named Phillip.  I don’t know where I came up with the names, they just came to me.  I changed the story a little so the brother is a twin and I renamed him Andrew.

Here is the strange part.  Today I saw a commercial for the new CW show Ringer starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.  I wasn’t going to watch it because I normally don’t watch a show unless it has something supernatural in it but decided last minute that I would because I didn’t want to get into it 3 episodes in and have to watch the first couple episode online.

So I watched it and this is what I knew, her character is a twin, her twin “dies” and she takes her place.  Sound a little familiar?  The twin part that is.

The 2 male characters names are Henry and Andrew.  When I heard those 2 names I thought, ok this is strange because my short story is about twins named Henry and Andrew.

I came up with those names out of thin air.  Henry has a premonition in the book but is it really me who had the premonition that I would be seeing a show with twins and with characters who have those 2 names?

I decided to write this short story based on a memory from when I was 9 years old as I was remembering it when writing my autobiography.  I think it’s funny that I made the brother change and the names that are all so similar to a tv show that I wasn’t going to watch.

I am an Indigo adult and I have had many premonitions and it still freaks me out every time I have them.

Do I continue to write this short story now?

Paranormal Court

It’s late at night and I’ve watched all of my shows for the evening so I do a little channel surfing and find this show on TLC called Paranormal Court.  It was halfway through so I activated the Start Over feature with my cable box and I am so glad that I did because this is such a good show.

I’m a skeptic with some of the psychic shows because occasionally they do cold readings which is where they say something hoping for a response.  The ones who are spot on with just about everything are the ones who really impress me and this guy was spot on with every reading and with everything in the readings.

This show says that it’s a court show but not in the traditional sense like Judge Judy has, instead this show have people who want to settle a dispute that only the deceased person can settle and he is a way to talk to the deceased to help settle the dispute.

This guy gave me the chills every time he would say something that was so spot on, there is no way that these were cold readings.

The last case was this teenage girl who was drugged and left in the basement and was having a seizure with boards on her legs and they were making a sound, a rhythm if you will.  Well he made that sound on the table with his fingers and my entire back was tingling from the chills that I got lol.

I went to the TLC website to find out the days and time this show airs but they don’t even have it listed and as far as I can tell this was the only episode so I feel so lucky that I got to see it because I hardly ever watch TLC.  Nothing against TLC, I just don’t watch their shows.

If this airs again I will want to know so I hope they put something up on their site soon so I can add a reminder on my TV page so I know to watch it again because it was a good show.  People say that they know what their deceased loved one would want, well they really don’t.  This guy will tell you exactly what that person wanted.

Ghostly Dreams

ghostI’ve been watching all these ghost videos on YouTube that it has entered my dreams lol.

The one thing that I’ve learned from watching Ghost Hunters on the SyFy (formerly Sci-Fi) channel is that they can’t hurt you.  Well, they kinda can because Jason has gotten scratches and they show people with scratches on their back that they couldn’t have possibly done to themselves.  And there was that one Halloween episode where Grant was being held back and you could see the collar of his jacket being tugged on.  But is that really hurting?

The videos on YouTube that I’ve been watching have been that stupid “Pantry Ghost” video where you can see hands and a face through the glass but someone has proven that it is a fake by showing you how they do it.  So I don’t believe in that one.  This same person has also shot video of himself playing hide n’ seek with his daughter and at the very end you see what appears to be a ghostly apparition in the corner by the dresser.  Well, that could’ve easily been faked using the same techniques as the pantry video.  They also made a video of going into a room and seeing a ghost girl standing up and then another where he opens the board to theattic and he sees a ghost girl turning around to see the camera.  Those are all fake because you cannot see through the ghost, it’s a solid apparition.

I’ve actually had encounters with “ghosts” in my bedroom.  Feeling a cat jump up on the bed and walk around.  That happens sometimes but I’ve accepted that it’s a kitty cat ghost, it can’t hurt me so it doesn’t frighten me in the least.  And one night, this only happened once, I was laying in bed and I felt what seemed like 4 cats on the bed but then I felt as though someone just sat down on the edge of the bed.  The edge of the bed felt like it was pressed down.  You could feel someone sitting.  I didn’t move because I didn’t want to scare it, it didn’t scare me.  I even said hello to it.  I eventually fell asleep.

But last night I had this dream that there was this ghost in the house and it was stalking me.  I went to the front door and there was a piece of furniture sitting in front of the door and it was keeping me in the house.  But I can’t put any stock into that dream because some how our toy chihuahua dog “Flower” duplicated so I had 2 “flowers” lol.

It still scared me, I was frightened and basically just scared out of my mind.  But I know that it was just a dream, they can’t hurt me.  I have to just keep saying and thinking that they cannot hurt me.

I saw “ghosts” as a kid, so did my older sister, my mother told me that she sees them too and that if I feel scared then perhaps it’s not good, it’s “evil” and to say the “lords prayer”.  Well, personally I don’t believe in evil as in hell or the devil.  I do believe in evil as in people who are evil such as those who have murdered other people and laughed about it and don’t regret it or apologize for it.  So I guess if a ghost can be good as people can be good then a ghost can be evil as people can be evil.  It works both ways.

I think the only way to stop those dreams is to stop watching YouTube ghost videos that try to scare you lol.

Ooooh Scary Bunny Man

you-make-bunny-cry

I turn the TV on because at 1 I watch Enterprise then Atlantis then SG-1.  Scariest Places on Earth is on and this woman is terrified to go in this tunnel in Rome because she is told the tale of a scary bunny man and if you say his name 3 times he appears.  She says it and then all of a sudden screams while running away and she falls lol.

Oh come on people, do you believe everything they tell you?  Look at that cute wittle bunny wabbit, he’s not gonna hurt you.

So I go to YouTube to find the clips from that episode to put in here but all I find are these videos for “The Bunny Man” in a small town in Fairfax County called Clifton in Northern Virginia.

No I haven’t watched it because Enterprise is on and I’m MISSING IT!  LOL I’ve seen every episode so that’s ok.  But I’m not going to watch it (bunnyman legend video) because it’s too funny to believe.  Call me close minded, call me skeptical or a cynic.  But if someone tells you about a scary bunnyman who lives in a bridge well, I have a bridge I would like to sell you.  It’s in Brooklyn and it’s called the Brooklyn Bridge, I won’t ask for much for it because it’s a little old.  Or maybe I should ask for a lot since it’s an antique.  Get your checkbooks out.

Paranormal State

I was laying in bed watching tv and I had the History channel on most of the day watching these shows about the universe, about space and technology etc.  But that marathon ended and I didn’t want to watch what was on afterwards so I looked at the guide and found Paranormal State on A&E so I changed it to that.

I think there was maybe 2 hours that I saw, 4 episodes.  It was ok, a bit too much for me though.  I much prefer watching Ghost Hunters and GHI.  At one point in the basement of a church this guy was in the bathroom and all of a sudden the guy fell, like he was pushed I guess, I don’t know but you could see the camera falling with him.  He was so freaked out that he couldn’t even speak when they asked him if he’s ok.

I’ve been there I guess, you are just in shock, you can’t move, you can’t even speak, your brain is working overtime trying to figure out what the heck just happened to me that you can’t form the words.  You just need a minute or 2.  I probably would’ve been all HELLO!  HELLO!  CAN YOU HEAR ME?  LOL I’m a jerk.  But if that happened to me and I couldn’t speak I’d actually like someone to snap me out of it so I can tell them what happened.

I guess it’s a good show, I just prefer watching Ghost Hunters.

Ghost Hunters Halloween Live

This is the 3rd annual live episode of Ghost Hunters.  It’s a 7 hour investigation beginning at 7pm and ending at 2am.  The following Wednesday night episode will be a follow-up to show the results of all the EVP and videos from the cameras and the flir.

Tonight the team revisits Fort Delaware in Delaware City to probe the former Civil War post. Guests Amanda Tapping and Mike “The Miz” Mizanin join the hunt. Hosts: Josh Gates and Steve Valentine.

So far after the first 6 minutes they already starting having issues with production.  All of a sudden the screen went snowy bringing back old memories of before cable was invented and you had to fiddle with the “rabbit ears”.  Also when Josh Gates was talking to Amanda Tapping and The Miz you couldn’t hear them talking.  You could hear Josh but not the other 2.  You could hear a lot of Josh’s voice echoing though and hearing Amanda talking sounded like an EVP, you could barely understand what she was saying.  The only people who were able to get what she said were lip readers.

It took about 45 minutes before they actually started doing their investigation which is fine because they showed the tour of the property and they showed how they got there which looks like it must have cost a lot of money, like you could probably buy a decent house in a rich neighborhood for the amount of money that they spent.

Once they went in the camera started messing up and they had just started.  It kept freezing up.  They could have switched over to Steve just until they got it all squared away but they kept going hoping it would clear up which eventually it did.

I also noticed on the Flir that they are 13 minutes ahead of us which means someone set the clocks ahead.  Of course I’m on the west coast so they are 3 hours ahead so it isn’t live for me but still, they were 13 min ahead for the east coasters too.

The cameras are messing up again.  It just happens to Jay and Grant but I think it’s because of the walls of where they are walking through.  They are after all in the dungeons.  You can’t expect good quality video down there.

Edit:  Sci-Fi channel keeps popping up these ads at the bottom of the screen.  Now I realize they won’t be showing a lot of commercials like they normally would, 15 – 17 min of commercials per hour, but the pop up’s are starting to get annoying.  I mean, they could make them smaller.  They take up 1/4 of the screen at the bottom every few minutes.  It reminds me of pop up ads on the internet except I can’t click them off.

I’ve stayed up for the entire 7 hour investigation despite the fact that I woke up at 4am and couldn’t go back to sleep.  I am sooooo tired lol.  I made a pot of coffee about 2 hours ago and of course I ran out of equal and sugar so this is my last cup.  There is only 20 more minutes left of the show so I’m going to tape my eyelids open, I got the tooth picks on hold just in case lol.

So far all that has happened is a strong authoritative male voice telling Jay and Grant “You aren’t supposed to be here”.  That’s all that I’ve noticed so far.  Josh said there were some other sounds like footsteps and knocking but I didn’t hear it.  I can’t wait to see the episode on Wednesday that will reveal all the evidence they found.

Ghost Hunters Marathon

Wow there have been a couple of episodes that I have never seen today on Sci-Fi.  I’ve been watching the marathon since 8am and it’s almost 6pm, the last 2 episodes I haven’t seen before.  I was very impressed in some EVP’s from a hotel in Washington (episode called “Ghostly Conversation”).

There was a room that a princess always stayed in when she visited the hotel, she even brought her own bed with her every time she came and she died there so the bed stayed there too.  Jay and Grant were in the room asking questions and the Princess was responding right away.  Of course you can only hear her respond on the EVP, you couldn’t hear her in real-time.  That’s the bad thing about doing this is you can only hear them on digital tape and not for real.  It’s still really cool though.
