This was a real good collection of true paranormal stories. It was a different type of paranormal read as the author interviews the people and they give their account of what happened to them. I really enjoyed all the stories and some of them are a bit creepy.

The stories cover just about everything from ghost sightings to out of body experiences. Giving it four stars for keeping me entertained. Aug 03, Wendy Mills rated it it was amazing.

Reports of these eerie encounters are materializing in online discussion groups, books such as "Messages" -- which features stories of people making contact with loved ones lost on September 11 -- and local ghost hunting groups that have sprung up across the country amid a surge of interest in the paranormal. Although such encounters are chilling, they can also be comforting, witnesses and paranormal investigators say. These encounters suggest the bond that exists between loved ones is not erased by death. Some people say that they are proof that there's life after death," said Steve Volk, author of "Fringe-ology," a book on paranormal experiences such as telepathy, psychics and house hauntings.

Scientific research on crisis apparitions is scant, but theories abound.

Our Haunted Lives: True Life Ghost Encounters by Jeff Belanger, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®

One theory: A person in crisis -- someone who is critically ill or dying -- telepathically transmits an image of themselves to someone they have a close relationship with, but they're usually unaware they're sending a message. Others suggest crisis apparitions are guardian angels sent to comfort the grieving.

Another theory says it's all a trick of the brain -- that people in mourning unconsciously produce apparitions to console themselves after losing a loved one. Whatever the source for these apparitions, they often leave people shaken. Nor are apparitions limited to visions.

The spirit of a dead person can communicate with a loved one through something as subtle as the sudden whiff of a favorite perfume, Volk says. Many people who don't even believe in ghosts still experience a mini-version of a crisis-apparition encounter, paranormal investigators say.

Did you ever hear a story of a mother who somehow knows before anyone told her that something awful has happened to her child? Have you ever met a set of twins who seem to be able to read each other's minds? People who are extremely close develop a virtual telepathic link that exists in, and beyond, this world, said Jeff Belanger, a journalist who collected ghost stories for his book, "Our Haunted Lives: True Life Ghost Encounters.

Do you know how you're close to someone, and you just know they're sick or something is wrong? Simma Lieberman said she's experienced that ominous feeling and has never forgotten it -- though it took place more than 40 years ago. Today, Lieberman is a workplace diversity consultant based in Albany, California.

In the late s though, she was a young woman in love. Her boyfriend, Johnny, was a mellow hippie "who loved everybody," a guy so nice that friends called him a pushover, she said. She loved Johnny, and they purchased an apartment together and decided to marry. Then one night, while Lieberman was at her mother's home in the Bronx, the phone rang and she answered. Johnny was on the line, sounding rushed and far away. Static crackled. There was more static, and then the line went dead.

Lieberman was left with just a dial tone. She tried to call him back to no avail. When she awoke the next morning, an unsettled feeling came over her.

She said it's hard to put into words, but she could no longer feel Johnny's presence. Nina De Santo says one of her friends stopped by her salon to thank her -- a day after his death. Johnny was shot in the head as he sat in a car that night. Lieberman thinks Johnny somehow contacted her after his death -- a crisis apparition reaching out not through a vision or a whiff of perfume, but across telephone lines.

She's sorted through the alternatives over the years.

Could he have called before or during his murder? Lieberman doesn't think so. This was the era before cell phones. She said the murderer wasn't likely to let him use a pay phone, and he couldn't have called after he was shot because he died instantly. Only years later, when she read an article about other static-filled calls people claimed to have received from beyond the grave, did it make sense, she said. Josh Harris' experience baffled him as well. It involved his grandfather, Raymond Harris. Josh was Raymond's first grandchild. They spent countless hours together fishing and doing yardwork in their hometown of Hackleburg, Alabama.

You saw one, you saw the other. Those days came to an end in when Raymond Harris was diagnosed with lung cancer. The doctors gave him weeks to live. Josh, 12 at the time, visited his grandfather's house one night to keep vigil as his "pa-pa" weakened, but his family ordered him to return home, about two miles away. Josh said he was asleep on the couch in his home around 2 a.

He looked up. His grandfather was standing over him. His grandfather then turned around and started walking toward the kitchen.

Harris rose to follow but spun around when the phone rang. An aunt who was in another room answered. As if on cue, his aunt came out of the room crying, "Josh, your pa-pa is gone. He said it took him a day to accept that his grandfather had died. But I just woke up and I saw him. It couldn't be my mind playing a trick. He looked solid.
