An Alien In The Wood

Alien hidden in the woods

Today is a Bank Holiday (Public holiday) in the UK so a quick photo as a post. I saw this alien last week while at Malpas, near Truro in Cornwall. There he was on a pile of logs by the river. I guess he'd settled in there as he had somewhere to hide and access to water. Couldn't see his UFO anywhere though.

The Wall Opened Up And She Saw Her Dead Mother

I seem to be on a roll with stories about people seeing their loved ones in some sort of spirit appearance after they have died. And it's not a new thing! Here's a story I've dug up from way back in 1869 by a Mrs. Ellis.

"On March 11, 1869, I was giving my little children their dinner at half-past one o'clock. As I was in the act of serving macaroni and milk from a tureen, I raised my head, and as I did so the wall opposite me seemed to open, and I saw my mother laying dead on her bed, in her little house.

Flowers were at her side and on her breast; she looked calm, but unmistakably dead, and the coffin was there.

It was so real that I could scarcely believe that the wall was brick and mortar, and not a transparent window.

I ought to say that when I was married my mother made me promise, as I was leaving home, to let her know if I died, and she would try to find some way of communicating to me the fact of her death - supposing that circumstances prevented the usual methods of writing or telegraphing."

~ Mrs Ellis

Penpals Met By Concidence After 50 Years

Here's a coincidence I came across in an old issue of the Australian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald. I have altered some of the wording slightly but otherwise the story is the same.

Emma Wiles, from NSW, visited a bowling club at Paddington, London, while on a world tour with her husband.

As the men played, Emma started chatting with a woman member and told her she was keen to know about Paddington.

"Why are you so interested?" the other asked.

Emma replied: "I went to school at Paddington, Sydney, and our English teacher suggested we write to schools in London with, if possible, the same names as ours. I corresponded with a girl named Emma Forsyth."

Emma Wiles says her companion turned quite pale, and then said, "You are Emma Hart and I am the Emma you wrote to."

Tears welled in their eyes, so much to say, so much to talk about. The pen-pal episode had begun 50 years ago, and now the two women called Emma had met by 'chance'.

Sees Grandmother From Beyond The Grave

Grandmother and reflection

This is a follow up to my post He Saw His Dead Friend. Matt Frost says that he too has seen someone who had died.

"In April, while drinking a cup of tea, I plainly heard a knock on the window, and, looking around, saw my grandmother outside. I went to the door, but did not see anyone.

Still feeling sure it was my grandmother, and knowing that, though eighty-three years old, she was very fond of a joke, I went around the house, but could not find anyone.

Later that day I received the news that my grandmother died about half an hour before I 'saw' her. I had not known she was ill. She had always promised me that she would come to me after she died if she could."

The Eton Wall Game Coincidence

Eton Wall Game
Eton Wall Game
Stepping back in time for today's coincidence story.

Dick Paget-Cooke was at Eton in November 1937, as a member of the Colleges' Eton Wall Game XI.

Arms linked with his team mates, he marched into the field of play, as the breeze blew their long scarves round their boots. Unbeknown to the team, a Life magazine photographer took a photo.

Moving forward eight years: Just prior to VE Day, 1945 Paget-Cook was a staff officer with 5 Corps HQ, he had permission to pass through Venice, which the last German forces had left a few days before. There he entered a newspaper and magazine shop and saw a copy of Life magazine.

The magazine hung on a rack near the ceiling. The proprietor dislodged it with a long pole.

Mr Paget Cooke said of this: "It fell on to the counter open at the page with the picture of myself walking on to the fields at Eton on that November day in 1937."

The Shadow Men Stalking Our World

I first wrote about The Shadow People Who Stalk Our World back in 2013. At the time it got a very big response. I've also brought the subject up a couple of other times since then. Today we have someone's personal experiences of seeing Shadow Men. He wishes to remain anonymous, but here is his story.

"I used to see shadow people The first one I saw was when I was 14 years old back in 1999, before anyone started talking about them. I stopped seeing them in 2005 when I was almost 20.

The first sighting was when I was walking home from school. I lived in a small town of about 900 people and on the way to my house there was a wood bridge I had to cross. The shadow man was leaning against the right rail, slightly hunched over. He stood about 12 feet tall and was wearing a large top hat, that probably added another 2ft to the form.

I was on Main Street which meant this thing was about 70 yards away. It scared me so badly I walked about a mile out of my way to cross the car bridge. When I came past the wood bridge, on the other side, I didn't look toward it, but just ran home.

Also, the shadow men are not see-through, as some have stated, They are pure blackness.

I should also mention that at the time I was starting to fall into a deep depression and eventually attempted suicide, about a year later.

The second time I saw one it was in my bedroom at night. I could see it even though my room was pretty dark. They are darker than black, if that makes any sense.

It was on the wall past the foot of my bed and. when I noticed it, it moved along the ceiling and laid next to me in my bed. I wasn't that scared, oddly enough. I stuck my hand out and actually touched it. It was easily 10 degrees colder than my room, probably even more. I eventually went to sleep with it there.

The third time I saw one, and the last time, I was almost 20 years old and working at a foster home for a mentally challenged elderly woman.

It was at night and I was in bed trying to sleep. The house was in a larger city, so some outside lights were lighting up my room a bit. When I opened my eyes and looked at the ceiling above me, there was a black circle about the size of a basketball. It grew in size rapidly, maybe about human sized but maintained its round shape, then it dropped at me. It happened rather fast and I closed my eyes and flinched so hard I kind of jumped laying down.

Anyway, those were my personal experiences I've shared with only a few people. I believe they tend to show up to people who are deeply depressed or with emotional problems.

I have a cousin who was in the hospital after she tried killing herself after she had a stillborn. This happened about 3 years ago. She was telling me she was visited by the devil. I'm an atheist so I didn't believe that. I asked her to describe this 'devil' and she said it was a black figure in the shape of a man that stood next to her in her hospital bed."

He Saw His Dead Friend

Collins Street, Melbourne, Australia

A short post of how a reader says he 'saw' a good friend who had died.

"Early in November, as I was walking up Collins Street, in Melbourne, about 4pm in the afternoon, I was amazed to see, among a number of people on the other side of the street, a very good friend, whom I believed to be in New Zealand at the time.

I ran across the street to speak to kim, and, as I neared the other side, it seemed to me as if a hand was passed for an instant before my eyes. In that moment my friend was gone, and though I looked everywhere around, I did not see him again.

A few days later I learned that my friend had died that very day and hour I had seen him."
