I write about mythical creatures and, much as I’d like to believe in fairies, mermaids etc, I don’t really think they exist. Mind you I’d be happy to be proved wrong.
As for ghosts, I’m not sure. Certainly there are places that feel haunted. I once stayed in an old hotel that had a strange atmosphere. Later I learned that several workers had been killed during construction of the building.
But the paranormal isn’t limited to ghosts and mythical creatures. I’m very open to believing in things like telepathy and clairvoyance. My grandmother-in-law had premonitions. Like the time she knew her daughter was going to have a horse-riding accident and begged her not to ride that day. How often do teenage girls listen to their mothers? Yep, daughter was thrown. Luckily her injuries weren’t too serious.
And then there was the time my grandmother-in-law entered hospital for a routine operation. She was fit and much too young to die but she predicted she would die while in hospital. She survived the operation but afterward she got an infection and passed away.
My husband has inherited her ability to some degree. If ever he gets a “gut feeling” about anything. I take notice. He’s usually right.
Have you had any paranormal experiences? I’d love to hear about them.
