Oogie Boogieman!

"Do you believe in the supernatural? Have you ever had a supernatural experience?"

Yes, I believe in the supernatural. Somewhat. I think.

I don't believe in ghosts. I don't believe in spooks. I don't believe in the Headless Horseman.

However, I do believe in the possibility of a person leaving fragments of themself behind as they move about through life. How do I explain this? I believe that if a person feels an especially strong emotion at one point or another, the force becomes so strong that the emotion is actually projected into surrounding objects. Sometimes, if the person's will and "outburst" was strong enough, these projections can last for years after the person themself is long gone. Sensative people might see these projections and interpret them as "ghosts." And they are ghosts, but they aren't dead spirits. (When you die, you go up or down, and that's it. No hanging around the earth.)

I also believe in demons because as God has angels, the devil must have demons who serve him. I believe in magic because I think that an awful lot is possible when people unleash the full potential of their mind, and that is a form of magic. I believe in ESP and psychics for the same reasons.

I've had several supernatural experiences, including premonitions and entanglements with ouija boards and psychic connections and all the rest. Want to know about them? Start reading older diary entries, because I'm too lazy to repeat the incidents again.
