Ghost Stories: A Possessed Patient

Readers, this story is worth a look. It reminded me of a somewhat similar experience from my days in hospital chaplaincy. One day, the Catholic chaplain and I were called in to see a patient in the ER who was a “legal 2000” or mentally ill person. We were certainly surprised when we entered the cubicle and experienced a scene almost out of the exorcist. Like the story which follows, this patient, a small, wiry man, had already burst out of 4 point restraints (should not have been possible) and three very burly male nurses could barely handle him.  He spoke fluently in a number of languages and was quite eerie in every possible way.  Read on for another example…from Ghosts.org here: http://ghosts.org/possessed-patient/

Ghosts: A Strange Encounter

Readers, as is sometimes the case, today you are stuck with one of my own myriad and wondrous strange experiences.  

When I was in graduate school (before the earth cooled) I went with some friends one day to see a fortune teller (they weren’t called “psychics” then). She was a nice older woman living in a mobile home in North Las Vegas in what is now a high crime area.  

I had never seen her before, none of us had.  For a very small fee (the equivalent of probably $5 today) she read our palms/cards.

When my turn came, she made some predictions about a scholarship I would get (I thought she was ‘way off – until I ended up getting exactly the one/when she said).  Then she looked at me and said “You are a very good swimmer but you have a deep-seated fear of water.”  This was entirely true except no one, but NO one knew.  I had even been on a swim team at one point. She got my attention.  She follows up with “That’s because you drowned in a past life.”

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
