This will sound really stupid, and I've only told two people in my life about it.

Sometimes I can go places and I'll get this really odd sensation, almost like an internal pulling of my brain within my skull. I can usually sense it before it gets bad and I'll walk away from the area. I've only experienced it bad enough one time that I couldn't conceal it. I'd been hunting for brass candle holders for a project for my grandmother. I was in an antique Mall in a part of town that you wouldn't go into after mid day in central Georgia. My husband was with me and I'd found one, near the entry of the store, and had hoped to find more towards the back. The closer I got to the back of this store, the more the pressure felt like it was increasing in my skull, until I just put the holder I'd found down and walked out of the store with just telling him, I need to get out of here.

It wasn't like I was afraid. But whatever that feeling is, it's awful. My eyes begin to feel like I have "tracers" and it has almost a bad dream quality to the experience. The only reason I continued into the store was because I was determined to find what I needed, and I was running out of time to get it done. There are other sensations with it, in my body too, but it's such a strange thing to try to describe. I would say maybe my body feels like my eyes, like it's tracing too, but in a tv static tingly way.

I felt completely drained, mentally, for a couple days after that. Like I was burnt out. Ever stay up for three days? Like that, but my eyes didn't hurt.

I never saw anything, though. I don't experience it often. My husband recently had a job offer in Pennsylvania and after looking at houses online, I told him I really didn't want to go up there. Something about the way they looked didn't sit right with me, and I felt like many of them may give me that sensation, or public areas might in passing. It's ridiculous, it really is. I find even writing this anonymously embarrassing, it sounds absurd.

One of my uncles had bought a house and the basement rooms were like this, I didn't bother to go down the stairs because I could feel that sensation worsen the closer i was to the stairs.

I once went to the Mayan ruins in Mexico. I'd wanted to go to see if I would "sense" anything. I felt absolutely nothing there. I would think that if I were experiencing "demons/ghosts" I sure as shit would have felt something, anything, there.

Not stupid or silly at all. You're probably an empath. Do you enjoy searching for things? - From the story you told I suspect that you secretly like going on walkabouts to search & find things that are strange peculiar or of personal relavance. Do you sometimes get the weird urge to mention something off-topic to a stranger which just completely makes them connect with you? For instance you meet a stranger on a plane and feel the need to ask him what he thinks about the silver surfer, and then this person reveals that they have a hidden tattoo of the surfer on their back. If so, then you're definately an empath. As for those bad feelings you get... let's just say you where right to leave the holder behind. It BELONGED to somebody, and you don't want that shit in your house. There are ways to clear these things and I would suggest you read up on Reiki Healing. But if you want to stay a novice that's cool - I will however give you this advice. When you are desperate - remember salt works. A pinch of salt in your pocket, or a big ol' bag of course salt under your bed. It's crude & cheap but it works. Nope you're not crazy & no it's not some EM fields either - you're an empath and you already know it!

Maybe there's something you're extra sensitive around. Doesn't necessarily have to be ghosts or paranormal stuff. There are a lot of things in our environment that can affect us that we aren't normally aware of. Do the sensations remain consistent at those locations over time?

My uncle did a spirit cleansing of his house, lol. I didn't feel it any longer there after he did it, I never went down the stairs though because I was so uncomfortable about it. I thought it was particularly odd that he did this, because he's a southern Baptist and a preacher at that. Didn't think those folk were into that kind of thing. I never went back to any of the other places that I experienced that. Driving by that old mall would always call my attention in a, hey let's find a different route to my destination next time, way. But that can easily be dismissed as aversion of that experience because I didn't get close enough to feel test for the sensation.

I find it highly likely that there are mechanics to our reality that we are completely oblivious to.

Like time not being strictly linear for example, several layers of different realities overlapping occasionally etc.

Look up the nature of non-locality in quantum mechanics, that fact alone should make you draw some other conclusions.

But who knows. I find it entertaining to think about.

E: also had a grandmother who demonstrated precognition on regular occasions far beyond chance. Had something similar happen but don't wanna talk about it.

You sound like you would enjoy reading Quantum Psychology by Robert Anton Wilson. Don't get too turned off by the buzzwordy title, it's a gem.

Thanks for the recommendation, I will definitely check it out.

Electrons can be entangled and respond to each other over distances at faster than the speed of light, telepathy is real. (See quantum entanglement). The CIA has employed people who can remote view as well. (Of course drones and satellites are more effective but remote viewing is real). I would assume when a horrific event occurs that some imprint in the surrounding matter could occur, such as people walking into a room where someone has died and being able to sense it. But I don’t think the dead comes back and haunts us like in the movies, I think that is just a metaphor.

I've heard Buddhist monks talk about remote viewing experiences they've had, which gives it some credibility in my view. I don't think they have a reason to lie about it.

There are files from the government documenting their remote viewing experiments. I think it's legit too.

That isn't true. It's a misconception due to the language used by the scammy researchers trying to make what they are doing sound interesting.

Actually it is true, and it can be done with more than just electrons! https://www.sciencenews.org/article/spooky-quantum-entanglement-goes-big-new-experiments

I believe in existence of a spiritual world, and I also believe that we live inside it right now. Everything has both a natural explanation and a supernatural explanation, and there is no contradiction. Laws of this world are enough to be able to manifest ultimate good and unspeakable evil. God doesn't cheat, He doesn't violate His own rules, but this doesn't mean His creation is dull. You don't need paranormal to be amazed and inspired with what transcends any mortal imagination: the Reality.

I mean, what's more terrifying, an evil bodybuilder with red skin and horns, or a smiling, well-groomed millionaire official secretly torturing kids in his basement?

Thing is, the well-groomed millionaire has no realy genetic or socialization reasons to be an evil fuck. While I don't literally believe it, evil as such can be so mysterious and hard to explain - as in: why - that some kind of a spiritual explanation could eventually make sense.

Heh. That is slightly different, I think. I wouldn't think that most people here would claim to have had personal contact with Jesus or Odin, let alone take other people who say such things seriously.

I am thinking about giving up my atheism and going Catholic. Certainly don't have anything like a personal feeling or calling to faith. But the whole Thomist system of philosophical theology actually begins to make sense to me.

I'm not one of the "most people here". Last night I was having a little anxiety, and I was alone outside and prayed for God to come down to comfort me. I immediately felt better and couldn't stop praising him. God is real to me.

I heard an analogy which describes my stance to this question; -two fish were swimming together in the ocean. after a while an older fish swims past them and asks, "hows the water?". After a while the younger of the two fish turns to the other and asks, "what water? ".

Much like Sasquatch, I want to believe... Need some hard evidence tho. We lived in a house once upon a time that made all sorts of noises (built in the late 1800's) my dad always joked that if it was haunted the ghost could at least give a reach around since he was paying the mortgage and keeping the place nice. Our family has a weird sense of humor...
