My friend has a similar problem when trying to quantify his experiences using a digital camera ... most people just say - "a quirk of light or dust or an over active imagination" etc.
Yet, I know he is telling the truth and he has had many odd experiences that have no clear explanation.
I believe in the supernatural and the spirit world, so I haven't got a problem here.
All very interesting stuff Sirona.
My friend awoke two nights ago to a curious mist above his bed (and no he doesn't sleep in a swamp!). Four weeks ago several forks involuntarily hurled themselves across his kitchen. A week before he heard something come into the room and sit on his bed; when he looked there was a dent at the end of the bed.
Makes me laugh actually, as every other day he seems to have a close encounter of the whacky kind. Rather him than me
