My “Paranormal Experiences”…

You can read this as fact, or fiction, whichever you personally prefer, however, I KNOW IT HAPPENED, and so does my ex-wife as both incidents involved both of us back in the 1970’s…..

It was quite an ordeal. We figured out “after the fact” what was going on. We were living above the bakery which we had opened in our hometown. And there was an event being planned by all of the churches in our town all working together, to put on an all inclusive revival week with an evangelist from Oklahoma. We volunteered our bakery/short order cafe as a meeting place to have the committee planning meetings. As soon as we all started meeting, these things started happening, not only to US, and our employees, but to other members of the committee also.. One lady went to a town 15 miles away to get her husband’s shoes resoled, and while they were fixing them, she went to a grocery store nearby to get a few items. She went back and picked up the shoes and began to drive back home, and decided she would munch on some cookies she had gotten at the store, and reached over into the paper bag on the seat next to her, and nearly wrecked the car when she reached into the bag because everything in it was covered with this “Karo syrup-like” sticky material. She had it on her hand, and grabbed the steering wheel, and it was slick, like lube, and she had trouble controlling the car and getting it pulled over and stopped on the side of the road. Her husband was a state policeman, so this was no flaky blonde idiot. And she had not purchased ANYTHING remotely like this at the store. But it was all over her groceries. Other members of the committee had weird things happening to them also. But ours were the most intrusive because WE were having the meetings at our place.

One morning, as one of my employees was making the donuts, after she mixed up the dough, and as she was filling the fryer with shortening as it was heating up, the dough was resting in big chunks on the makeup table before being rolled out and cut. She heard the door out in front open and slam (even though she had locked it behind her when she came in) so she went out front to see why it was opening. So she thought maybe, for some reason that I was coming down early or something, but the door was still locked. When she went back into the back, she continued filling the fryer, and then went out to make coffee and fire up the grill and get ready to open. When I came downstairs to help her and roll out the donuts, I went in the back and there was this Karo syrup-like stuff smeared on the top of the dough. I asked her why she had done that, and her eyes bugged out and she assured me she hadn’t done it. Then she told me about the door slamming earlier even though it was locked. So I cut off the stuff and used the rest of it cause there wasn’t time to make more and it seemed to be just fine otherwise.

Well, later that same day, with a room full of people sitting and having coffee and donuts, all of a sudden, GREEN WATER began running out from under one of the walls, and across the floor into a puddle in a low place in the floor. My wife had come down to work by that time, and the customers yelled at her and called her attention to it, and she grabbed a mop and bucket and began mopping it up. I went down into the basement to see where it was coming from, but there wasn’t any waterpipes anywhere near that area. I checked the building next door to ours and there was no water anywhere. She mopped nearly a half bucket of green water and then it suddenly stopped. A couple of days later, I needed to go downstairs to the basement to get a block of shortening from a big stockpile I had purchased to get a good deal. I knew my way around so I didn’t bother turning on the lights, but when I grabbed the 50# box of shortening and picked it up, the top of the box had sunk in and was filled with GREEN WATER and I got covered with it splashing on me. I set it down and went to turn on the lights, and all of the boxes were soaked with this green water puddled on the tops of them. Once again, there was NO water source anywhere near them, in the ceiling or anywhere.

So later that day, I was telling my best friend, who was our mailman, about all of these things going on, and he was totally in disbelief. He said, SHOW ME… So we went out the back door and down into the basement. Now, the back door on this building was a sliding glass door, and when we had purchased the building, we had not gotten any keys for that door, so it had to be locked from the inside and we’d put a rod in the track to secure it. And the lock was one like most sliding glass doors, and you had to give it an extra hard push to actually snap it locked. I showed him the water on the shortening and he looked where the water had went running from the wall, and couldn’t come up with any rationale how they could have happened. The whole time we were down there, we could hear my employee upstairs above us waiting on customers in the front part of the bakery, and heard alot of voices, so I knew she was getting busy and said I should go back up to help her. When we went back upstairs to go in, the sliding glass door was LOCKED, from the inside, but no one had been to the back of the shop. I banged on the door, and the girl came running back to open the door, and she had her eyes bugged out as she opened the door and said, “Carlin, HOW did you lock this door? I thought you didn’t have any keys for it?” and I said, I didn’t! and she said, “But it’s impossible for it to lock by itself, cause you have to give it that extra NUDGE to get it to lock! Carlin, WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND HERE??? I’m getting scared!! And my friend was just befuddled.

Within a week, my wife and I gave birth to our oldest daughter, and she was in the hospital. I came home alone, and was obviously exhausted. I had a routine, where I’d take off my clothes in the bedroom, and go down the hallway to the bathroom, then would go to the frig to get a drink of water, and back to the bedroom to go to bed. So, I know everything was normal when I went to bed! The next morning, I would reverse my routine, getting up, going to the frig to get a drink, and then to the bathroom to pee, and back to get dressed. When I walked up to the refrigerator, I stepped in a puddle of this karo-syrup like stuff that had been spread in front of the frig where there was no way I could avoid it, and it squished up between my toes. NOT a pleasant feeling, when you’ve just gotten up out of bed! I limped into the bathroom and had to wash off my feet and mop up the floor. When I went downstairs, my employee said she had heard the door opening and slamming all morning, even though it was locked, and she kept hearing voices too.

It all came to a head after we’d brought our baby home, and about the second or third night, at about 2AM, my wife heard her wake up and start crying so she got out of bed to go bring her back to our bed and nurse her back to sleep. I woke up enough to know she was getting up, and promptly went back to sleep. After about an hour, I realized that she hadn’t come back to bed, and I woke up and got up to go see where she was. I went out into the hallway and down it to the baby’s room, and she was standing by the crib, hugging our baby so tight it was almost having trouble breathing, and when she saw me rounding the corner, she almost collapsed from fright, and came running over to me bursting into tears. She said, I’m so glad to see you! For the last hour, I’ve been standing here going through HELL! I’ve been hearing voices and marching out in this hallway going up and down it and when you came around that corner, I thought sure they were coming to get me! That night, I went around the apartment praying and blessing each room, invoking Christ to protect us, and we put my grandmother’s bible in the crib with our baby, and asked her to watch over her as her guardian angel, and we never had any more problems!

A thousand people accepted Christ as their savior or rededicated their lives at the services the following week!! And it was after the services were over when the committee came back together to evaluate how everything had worked out, that we discovered that we weren’t the only ones having strange things happening to us…. But we did have MORE than anyone else had experienced!

BEFORE we were married, we had an experience involving a UFO…..

As we were driving on a country road after a date, when I was showing her the farmhouse where I had lived for 3 years before we had moved into town, I looked up as we were driving down this rock road through the cornfields and saw two very big, bright lights about 200 feet above the ground, coming towards us. There was a full moon that night. I stopped the car, and opened my door and stepped out with one foot to see if I could hear anything. There wasn’t a sound other than my car. But the lights were getting closer and closer. I slammed the door and peeled out, probably throwing rocks fifty feet behind the car! My fiance said, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? She hadn’t seen it yet. I told her to roll down her window and look up. So she did, and it was right above us, about a hundred feet above us, going down the road following us. We went down a gulley where the trees had grown together over the road, and I turned our lights off, thinking maybe it might lose us in the dark, but with the moonlight, I could still see the rock road. As we came up out of the gulley, there was a cemetery, and I pulled the car into it, thinking maybe it might lose us among the tombstones. So we pulled in and I turned off the car. After a brief but scared to death discussion, I rolled down my window and looked up to see what was going on, and it was directly above us, and I could see the outline of it against the moonlit sky. It looked like a batwing shaped ship with the two headlights on the front of it, and they were pointed due north. We arrived home, an hour late that night after our curfew her parents had imposed, and we couldn’t account for where all of our time had gone, because after I looked up, our memories were a blank until we saw it disappearing in a flash going so quick we could hardly watch it.

This actually looks exactly like the object that chased us!

We were missing about 2 hours or so, but we both just seemed to agree that we didn’t really want to know what had happened and we decided to try to just put it behind us, because people would think we were crazy. WE thought we were crazy! We were at a “coffee break” with a bunch of CB’ers a couple of weeks later, and we heard two of them talking about seeing some strange lights in the sky one night 2 weeks before as they were driving home from a neighboring town. They described how it had gone this way and that way and was zigzagging around, and then hovered in one spot and then disappeared after about 15 minutes… That had been as it was chasing us, because from where they had been, it would have put the lights right over where we had been. I’ve always said that if I had been alone, and didn’t have HER to worry about, I would have just stopped and said, Come down here! I want to meet you!! But I was worried about and felt responsible for her.

I’m still afraid to find out what happened that night, so have never wanted to be hypnotized to go back and see if I remember anything more. But when I saw movies like “Close Encounters” with Richard Dreyfuss and the one with Christopher Walken where he’s taken and probed, it sends shivers up my spine!

After 20 years of being in a sometimes happy, sometimes frustrated marriage, I decided it was time for me to stop living a life of lies and deceit and be true to who I really was, a gay man, and to start pursuing my own pathway to happiness. That pathway has had many high points and low points with many obstacles thrown at me by fate. While I have met many wonderfully sweet men over the years, some for short term relationships and others for brief encounters, my search continues for that one "Mr. Right" that I can be with long term, sharing everything in our lives together. http://bearchub4u.com/search.html to see who I'm searching for. Maybe it's you?

One Response to My “Paranormal Experiences”…

  1. Carlin, as you can see, I AM catching up on your posts. Although I AM a professional Psychic, as well as a very Spiritual man, I rarely feel comfortable talking about demons and the like. It sounds very much like your bakery had either a demon, or some other type of low-level non-corporeal entity. There are so many ways that it could have gotten to your shop, so many that it could be a blog post on its own (which I happily decline to write, thank you).

    Nonetheless, you did the right thing by Praying and Blessing every room in your home! As an Energy Healing Practitioner, and an Ethical Witch, I have been called upon to cleanse and Bless a home or office. I use Reiki Healing Energy, Divine Decrees and Magickal Energy, as well as Prayer. Any one or all of these methods together are excellent for eliminating low-level entities from one’s home. And although I AM a Happily Recovered Catholic, I AM crystal clear that there is great power in the Name “Jesus Christ.”
