I didn’t see any ghosts or angels trick or treating at my house, but last week was their time. It’s odd that we have so many paranormal books out with creatures I don’t believe exist: zombies, vampires, werewolves and demons. But there are paranormal beings that I believe in. Ghosts, for one. I wrote a book with a ghost as a character, and I wrote a book about a dragon who, through the centuries, changed into a man. I don’t believe in dragons changing into a man, but I do believe that people who die could linger. They might be attached to their bodies or a living being that they aren’t ready to leave. I haven’t seen any ghosts, but I would love to. I wouldn’t be afraid, because I don’t think a ghost would harm me.
Angels. I believe in an afterlife – also known as “heaven.” In this heaven, I think there are wise beings that might or might not have been in human form who watch over us. And they might be the beings we call angels. Again, I haven’t seen these beings, but sometimes I imagine they are surrounding me, wishing me well and giving me love. It makes me feel better. Full confession, I sometimes feel that departed members of my family are watching me and sending me love. I feel their love, like it’s a physical thing. It’s pretty…wonderful.
Aliens. I’ve written a book about female aliens who came to earth, and the male aliens who came after them. Researching for this blog, I found a Huffington Post Poll, and apparently most of us believe there’s life of other planets, but not necessarily intelligent life. I believe in aliens. In all the many planets in the universe, how can there not be life? They wouldn’t look like us. Maybe they’d be more like an insect or a tree with legs instead for roots in order to survive on their planet. But that insect or tree could very well be much more intelligent than us.
Bigfoot. I think there are a lot of hairy, big-footed creatures around. I know a few, and they’re all too human, even if they sometimes make strange noises.
What about you? What do you believe in? Have you had any paranormal experiences?
