The following testimonials come to us from a man in the UK named Paul. His experiences are vast and we are grateful that he wrote some of them down for us to share with you via our census form. His experiences show that some people are more prone to paranormal-type events. When these events happen, they really tend to stick with you throughout your life as they are vividly remembered.
We know a lot of our readers have had paranormal experiences, so please feel free to share them via our census form!
At sometime in your life, you may hear a voice that is unfamiliar to you. It can be in your own head, or in the case of this brief testimonial by Paul, it can be from a physical voice of an unknown origin. We call these disembodied voices as the voice is physically heard, but there is no one physically present.
One morning early I left the flat above a shop where I lived to take our dog out before work. As we started to walk down the metal stairs, I heard a voice quite loud say “LOOK ON THE GROUND FOR THE MONEY.”
At the bottom of the steps lying there was a twenty pound note. This happened another occasion also where I was told to pick up the money by an unseen person.
A trip to remember.
Paul had a fantastically vivid, personalized out-of-body experience that involved a loss of his sense of time. He feels that this experience marked a major turning point in his life.
I was going through a divorce at the Hme and was very down and depressed. A good friend suggested a trip for some healing with a lady she knew. I thought it cant hurt so I went along. I wasn’t expecting much, to be honest, and thought I was just doing it to please her.
The lady invited me in to her house and showed me to a li`le room at the top of the stairs where she did her healing. In the room was a single bed. She asked me to just lay down and relax and listen to the music that was playing. As I did this she, started putting crystals and stones around my body. She said don’t worry about anything and just relax.
The very next thing I found myself outside walking along this dirt road. To the right of me was a lake where I could see children playing in the water. To my left was a very large marble building. I remember the sky was very blue and it was warm but I couldn’t see any sun. I have to say it all seemed perfectly normal as I wasn’t aware of just being in the room and on that bed.
In the distance I saw a man walking towards me. I remember her wore a long robe. His head was bald and the thing that stood out was he had the most beautiful eyes. Now I don’t fancy men, but I felt he was a beautiful soul. He came up to me quite normally and told me whom he was and we talked for quite a while. Just like old friends. It felt all perfectly normal.
Then suddenly a man appeared in front of us. He was at a guess an Egyptian. He was wearing a golden headdress. He told me his name was Rhan and he was there to help me in my life, etc. If ever I needed help I was to call out for Rhan. We were talking for what seemed ages but the conversations were forgotten when I came back later. He asked me if there was anything I wanted to ask. I mentioned the marble building and how I felt drawn to it and wanted to go inside. He laughed at me and told me one day I could enter but not that day.
Whilst we were talking, I started to hear a faint voice calling my name. It got louder and louder and when annoyingly I said “What!” I found myself back lying on the bed in the little room. It was the healer lady that was calling me back. She said I had been gone for over an hour and a half.
An unexplained encounter.
Sometimes, profound experiences can be quite alarming like this one Paul had in the winter of 2020. He does’t know what was happening, and the experience is certainly unique.
I have had literally dozens and dozens of things happen over the years but one amazing experience happened only a couple of weeks back. Again I was in bed and sound asleep when something made me wake up quite quickly.
I was aware of the whole room buzzing as if electrified and my body was electric and buzzing. I felt really odd and felt I was about to pass over. I called out for God, I was quite scared, mainly as I did not want to die just then.
The electric was shooting through my body.
All of a sudden when I called out for help the experience stopped. It was then out loud in the room a loud voice of a man was laughing.
I wish I had kept my bottle and seen this through. It was quite something
Shimmered into the floor.
In this final testimonial from Paul, he had a spectral encounter with a deceased loved one and an unknown child that announced themselves with a noise. This is very frequently how they appear and try to get your attention (the founder of Paranormal Study has had this exact same experience on multiple occasions). In his description, Paul uses an interesting description as the spirits shimmer into the floor upon leaving. Spirits and extraterrestrials rising up from, and disappearing into the floor are a rarer iteration of encounter which is why we find this testimonial so fascinating.
I was in bed fast asleep. About 3am. I was awoken by a really loud noise like a clap or electrical explosion. I jumped up and looked towards the doorway where I saw my Grandfather standing there holding the hand of a very young blonde haired boy. I saw them fully formed standing there.
The landing light was on for my daughters in case they got up to the toilet during the night. They were both very young at the time.
My Grandad passed when I was a baby but I knew it was him because of photographs I’ve seen of him. He stood perfectly still during this experience, but the young boy was laughing and smiling at me and started to walk around to my side of the bed.
As he did my wife at the time woke up as she felt me jump and turned to me to ask what was a matter. I said out loud to her, “Quick! look at the doorway!”
As she turned my Grandfather and the boy just shimmered into the floor and they were gone.
I was quite shocked and shaken at the time. It was truly life changing.
Paul’s experiences are unique and cover a vast swathe of paranormal phenomena. We are truly grateful to Paul for sharing his experiences with us so we can share them with you.
