I was having a conversation with my daughter's boyfriend yesterday and he mentioned something that I have experienced many times. He said that sometimes when seeing something paranormal personally, or even just watching a movie dealing with the paranormal, he feels like and even begins to cry. I have experienced the same strange emotional response. It's not really a sadness, but more like a longing. it's hard to put into words how it feels. Has anyone else ever experienced anything of the sort?
There is also another phenomenon that I think is related. For the life of me, I can't think of the term, but I will tell you a story I was once told. I once had a teacher that told me of his experience when he lived in Hawaii. He was an atheist at the time. One day, him and his friend were out joy riding and they got into a bad accident. He wasn't hurt, but his friend was. As he was sitting in the waiting room at the hospital, he saw this stranger walking toward him. He described the stranger as having eyes that looked right through him. The stranger stopped in front of him, shook his hand, addressing him by name said "I have come a very long way to see you." As this stranger said these words and shook his hand, he said he started balling and could not stop. The stranger was an evangelist and changed his life after that encounter. This teacher, stopped me as I was leaving one day, to tell me this story. He said he chose me to tell the story to because he seen something really good in me. No, I did not start crying...
I have had a similar experience with an older woman I met at a post office and later seen her 2 more times. She didn't make me cry either, but she had these deep set eyes that looked right through me. It creeped me out, but she was so nice and had this aura of warmth that I was intrigued by her. She came up to me after staring at me, shook my hand and said "It's you. I am so pleased to meet you." I asked her if she thought she knew me and she said no, it's just that she could tell I am a very good person and asked me if I realize how special I am. I didn't know what she was talking about and actually can't remember much else. I seen her a couple more times and noticed she only seemed to react that way to me. I actually thought she might be crazy or something but the only strange thing about her was her eyes and demeanor toward me.
Sorry, I know it seems like I got off subject, but all three things are related in my mind.
