Paranormal, the unexplained, things going bump in the night...what does it all really mean?
Alexandra Holzer is the author of Lady Ambrosia which is featured above.
At a young age my little body was caught in mid-air by unseen hands only to land safely on the hard floor. This floor was part of a house in Badasse, Austria in which my family purchased for use in the summers. It was haunted.
Stories told by my Parisian grandmother who has the sight as so did her sister, was always being sat down upon when sleeping at night.
Whether she'd be visiting her dear, departed close friend, Chef Pierre Frane in his Hampton's home or elsewhere...'they' always seem to sit by her for a while. The chef's mother, Betty, was a close Parisian friend of my grandmother's who was the one doing the sitting.
I remember visiting there once.
During our first night there, my grandmother told me of the time she awoke in the middle of the night only to feel the presence of something or someone in the room with her.
Her eyes opened but her body did not twitch for fear of the unknown. Spiritual she was and still is, but fear is a different entity forming from the sub-conscience that we humans manage to different degrees of tolerance. In laymen's terms - she was scared!
She immediately turned on the side table's lamp and felt the impression pass. The light would remain on until dawn. That would be one of my longest nights staying awake in that house.
