Dreams or Dreamers? Part Two

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

This fossil fish recovery of information is good, but debunkers would say he was lucky orrepparttar dream was a fiction created to promote himself or his place of work. In many cases they are right about these suppositions, inrepparttar 122228 cases they are wrong they say no one can know for sure. Surely nothing is certain but reasonable judgement can be made when enough evidence supports it. Dreams are real; informational exchanges do occur across boundaries difficult to traverse physically, andrepparttar 122229 overwhelming experience of people is a great reason to say something is going on. How many people experience 'deja vu' or other psychic realities? Most do at some time in their life. Are we all crazy or isrepparttar 122230 scientists’ bent on ‘what can't be seen doesn't exist' crazier?

"The dream of Prof. Hilprecht,repparttar 122231 Babylonian scholar who vainly tried to decipher two small pieces of agate, is more complicated and belongs torepparttar 122232 clairvoyant order. {Working on decrees in dream state is a necessity for success. I have won cars, and had many answers to my decrees when they are right forrepparttar 122233 good of all. The car was a demonstration for others who I told I would win in a nationwide raffle for a whole month before it happened.} As reported inrepparttar 122234 'Proceedings' ofrepparttar 122235 Society for Psychical Research (August 1900) he went to sleep tired out in vain speculation and dreamed of a tall, thin priest ofrepparttar 122236 old pre-Christian Nippur who led him torepparttar 122237 treasure-chamber ofrepparttar 122238 temple and went with him into a small low-ceiled room without windows in which there was a large wooden chest, while scraps of agate and lapis-lazuli lay scattered onrepparttar 122239 floor.

Here he addressed him as follows: 'The two fragments which you have published separately belong together, and their history is as follows: King Kruigalzu (c.1300 BC.) once sent torepparttar 122240 temple of Bel, among other articles of agate and lapis-lazuli {Modern and ancient esoteric stone from which blue scarabs or beetles make great symbolic ritual and talismanic pieces.}, an inscribed votive cylinder of agate. Then we priests suddenly receivedrepparttar 122241 command to make forrepparttar 122242 statue ofrepparttar 122243 god Nidib a pair of ear rings of agate. We were in great dismay, since there was no agate as raw material at hand. In order for us to executerepparttar 122244 command there was nothing for us to do but cutrepparttar 122245 votive cylinder into three parts, thus making three rings, each of which contained a portion ofrepparttar 122246 original inscription. The first two served as ear rings forrepparttar 122247 statue ofrepparttar 122248 god;repparttar 122249 two fragments which have given you so much trouble are portions of them. If you will putrepparttar 122250 two of them together you will have a confirmation of my words.'

The continuation ofrepparttar 122251 story is given by Mrs. Hilprecht who testified to having seen Prof. Hilprecht jump out of bed, rush intorepparttar 122252 study and cry out: 'It is so, it is so.'

There are many authenticated cases of strange bits of information obtained in dreams. Professor William James was very deeply impressed byrepparttar 122253 Enfield case in whichrepparttar 122254 discovery ofrepparttar 122255 body of a drowned woman was affected through a dream of Mrs. Titus of Lebanon, a stranger torepparttar 122256 scene.

Prof. Charles Richet mentionedrepparttar 122257 following instance of dream cognition: 'I saw Stella onrepparttar 122258 2nd of December duringrepparttar 122259 day, and on leaving I said 'I am going to give a lecture on snake poison.' She at once replied: 'I dreamt last night of snakes, or rather of eels.' Then, without of course giving any reason {This story seems to be ESP.}, I asked her to tell me her dream, and her exact words were: 'It was about eels more than snakes, two eels, for I could see their white shining bellies and their sticky skin; and I said to myself I do not like these creatures, but it pains me when they are hurt.' This dream was strangely conformable to what I had donerepparttar 122260 day before December 1. On that day I had, forrepparttar 122261 first time in twenty years, experimented with eels. Desiring to draw from them a little blood, I had put them onrepparttar 122262 table and their white, shining, irridescent, viscous bellies had particularly struck me.'

An authenticated case of dream clairvoyance, possibly under spirit influence, isrepparttar 122263 following: Miss Loganson, a girl of Chicago, age nineteen, saw in a dreamrepparttar 122264 assassination of her brother, Oscar, who was a farmer of Marengo, about fifty miles northwest of Chicago. She was accusing a farmer neighbor named Bedford for days, without any attention being paid to her. At length she was permitted to send a telegram {Silly woman, trying to spend money foolishly!},repparttar 122265 reply to which was 'Oscar has disappeared.' Starting for Oscar's farm, accompanied by another brother and byrepparttar 122266 police she went directly torepparttar 122267 house of Bedford. Traces of blood were found inrepparttar 122268 kitchen. Proceeding torepparttar 122269 hen houserepparttar 122270 yard of which was pavedrepparttar 122271 girl said: 'My brother is buried here.' Owing torepparttar 122272 insistence ofrepparttar 122273 girl and her terrible agitation consent was given to dig. Underrepparttar 122274 pavement they first foundrepparttar 122275 brother's overcoat and five feet down they came uponrepparttar 122276 body. Bedford was arrested at Ellos, Nebraska and hanged in due course. Miss Loganson, in explanation, said thatrepparttar 122277 spirit of her brother haunted her continually for seven days in dream.

Ghosts: How Energy Factors Into Their Existence

Written by Gloria Young

As a child, my father always told us ghost stories. The stories were of experiences that he and our family had in homes that they visited or lived in. I was always fascinated byrepparttar thought that ghosts might be real. It wasn't until I grew up and actually began having experiences myself that I decided that this was something I needed to know much more about. It seemsrepparttar 122227 more I tried to get answers,repparttar 122228 more I got questions.

Overrepparttar 122229 years I have come up with some answers after usingrepparttar 122230 theories developed by scientists many years ago. Discovering these answers has made me more aware of what ghosts are and where they may have come from. Although I don’t haverepparttar 122231 “real” or “true” answers, this is not becauserepparttar 122232 information is incorrect, it is because there are no experts inrepparttar 122233 paranormal field. This includes me. I am not an expert, however, I have done as much research, if not more, than some ofrepparttar 122234 paranormal investigators working today. After working onrepparttar 122235 research, performingrepparttar 122236 investigations and reaching a conclusion, I can bring you some honest answers to what we believe ghosts are and where they come from.

Probably sincerepparttar 122237 beginning of time, ghosts have beenrepparttar 122238 subjects of many conversations. Sometimes these conversations were done in a hush-hush manner because ofrepparttar 122239 stigma associated with talking about this subject. Many had to talk behind closed doors and make sure that it was only with people they trusted. Nevertheless, talk of ghosts continued and has evolved into a trendy, get-a-thrill hobby.

So, exactly what is a ghost? Where does a ghost come from? Why are they here? Let me see if I can make some sense out of something we don’t understand. What is a ghost? It is thought that ghosts are people. They were once people who lived and breathed much like you and me and then for various reasons, they died. It could be a father, mother, brother, sister….well, you getrepparttar 122240 point. It could be anyone. Usingrepparttar 122241 mechanics of physics we understand that people prior to being born, start as energy. When we are born, we are given a “shell” or a body to live in althoughrepparttar 122242 energy is still within us. Some people or religions consider this a soul. Whenrepparttar 122243 body has finally become worn out due to years of use or, if something has happened that we die earlier than our years,repparttar 122244 body dies andrepparttar 122245 remaining energy removes itself fromrepparttar 122246 body.

Medical personnel have told stories for years of being atrepparttar 122247 bedside of a dying patient and atrepparttar 122248 moment thatrepparttar 122249 person passes, seeing a “wisp” of something or an energy of some type floating upward. There have always been stories similar to that from people who work in similar fields ranging from firefighters, paramedics, etc. They have related amazing stories from dying people of seeingrepparttar 122250 “light”, seeing relatives long since deceased, going throughrepparttar 122251 “tunnel”, etc. It is not possible from a physical point of view that dying patients are able to acquirerepparttar 122252 strength to physically open their eyes brightly, smile, move their mouths and talk or act as if talking, lean up out of bed when overrepparttar 122253 course of their illnesses they have lostrepparttar 122254 ability to do these things. If they have nearedrepparttar 122255 end of their lives, it is said that relatives come back to retrieve their loved ones and “take them home”. From a paranormal standpoint and having witnessed this miracle myself, I must confess that it is true. These actions do occur. A person who is nearingrepparttar 122256 end of their lives will, usually one day prior to their death, suddenly become alert, sit up, perhaps talk or at least knowingly acknowledge their loved ones still living and have a chance to say their goodbyes. It is on that next day that usually they will die. Could it be a blessing from God? What is it that gives these peoplerepparttar 122257 strength that they probably haven’t had in days, months, years to be able to perform these tasks? Again, more questions….no answers.
