The Dead Versus The Living
Posted: 14:15 July 3, 2007
Now that we have been formally introduced I can get right down to business. The business of the paranormal meeting up with us.
At one point in time you may run into someone with a ghost story. They tell it to you like it is the first time. At some point in time you may have raised the topic of ghosts to friends or loved ones. It's almost as if you may have "cooties" by saying the word "ghost" and '"I saw" in the same sentence.
The more people I encounter during filming, writing and contributing to discussion boards, I am learning that the paranormal is quite normal. That's the opposite of what you would think when meeting complete strangers.
Most of us hold back when inside we might be bursting at the seams to ask if they too, believe. This is good news. Maybe some of you ask what can the paranormal field do for you? Maybe some already know while others are new on the scene. Whatever effect it's meaning has on the individual will lead to a positive. I have my belief in it as well.
Take a case of sadness. It's ok to feel sad and so perhaps you've had a tough life. Here's where your faith, belief systems, patience, perseverance, experiences and anything else you can throw in are tested. This is the time for those in need to turn towards the paranormal guides and ask for help. Some wonder if it is it silly to ask out loud for guidance? Still others ponder and quietly whisper a few words under their breath while washing their hands at dinnertime. Whatever "twirls your beanie" as long as you try the ridiculous you may save the day.
