Far-fetched…

Today during a class of mine a student asked me something about Bigfoot. First of all, it was a completely random moment in class. I promise I don’t teach paranormal studies. 🙂

Anyway, I explained that there were a lot of things I am open to believing in… aliens, ghosts, and other paranormal topics. Bigfoot? Not so much. Go ahead, bring up astral travel at dinner! I’ll tell you how I’ve tried it and have read  quite a bit about it. Reincarnation? Channeling? Automatic Writing? Remote Viewing? Sure! I’d love to learn more about it all and believe it’s all absolutely real. But when it comes to Bigfoot, that’s a little too crazy for me. I find it hard to keep a straight face while having Bigfoot conversations. Why is that?

There are a few other topics that make my ego uncomfortable when I hear or read about them. It’s that same ego that forces me to want to roll my eyes as I tell myself “It’s okay… just get past this chapter. You don’t have to be sucked into believing every paranormal topic you read about.” 🙂

What do you think about these?

  • Elves, Fairies & Leprechauns – Sylvia Browne says elves and leprechauns are real and reside in the “underworld”, which is supposedly not an evil place of darkness like it sounds. 
  • Parallel Universes/Multiverses – I’m sorry… my brain can’t even begin to comprehend that… yet there are many, many books written on the subject.
  • Time Slips – What?!

So…. What paranormal topics are a bit too far-fetched for you?

Here’s a blog on the topic of parallel universes.

    Ah cryptozoology. Honestly – my little world of normalcy has crumbled to pieces since November. I’m very much of the stance that anything’s possible anymore.

    Sylvia Brown isn’t the only one who talks about Fairies and the like – I’ll admit, that is still hard for me to swallow. But then again – as I said earlier, I suppose anything is possible these days.

    You should read Elisa’s post where she asks Erik about Bigfoot. (Oh yes- we’ve thought of just about everything to ask Erik lol).

    haha what hasn’t happened since November??? Out of body experiences, apparitions in my house, visions, clairaudient and claircognizant conversations… life used to be normal, you know. With only the occasional haunting (lol if THAT could even be considered “normal”).

    Ha – that’s my old blog. I haven’t written in there in about 2-3 years. That whole getting married and moving to the burbs thing really put a damper on my nightlife. Blog died from lack of material.

    Here’s where I keep my other stuff (under lock and key): http://spiritualnetworks.com/profile-25557/blog/

    If my cushy corporate bosses ever found out I was talkin’ to dead people… well, I can’t imagine my job would last long.
