Being Sensitive or Just Being Paranoid?

We all know the sensation when someone stares at you from behind. The sensation always lets you turn your back to check if your gut is right. However, there’s a big differences when you are already in a mindset that you WOULD be watched. Expectation blocks the intuition. I think it’s just the same thing when you feel or when you think you feel the paranormal. A morbidly looking place may make you feel uneasy and scared. On the other hand, a comfortable place puts you in a mindset that you are safe. You may misjudge the place as being haunted just because it looks haunted. You may also feel uneasy not just with the looks of the place but with stories about it. Like for example, one particular room is said to be haunted, you may feel uneasy knowing that this place has the possibility of being haunted. Therefore the mindset that a place is possibly haunted blurs out your authentic gut feelings that tell a place is haunted or not. These biased feelings may affect judgment consciously and unconsciously.

So how would I know if I am just paranoid about a place or am I authentically feeling a supernatural presence?3206769976?profile=original

  • I can be somewhere and have a creepy feeling come over me without knowing it is haunted. If I know a place is haunted, then I would expect something bizarre to happen.

  • Thank you Juli! I was thinking about this paranoia thing because sometimes I feel jumpy when I'm home alone. My mind tends to imagine stuff .. scary stuff and that's when I get paranoid all of the sudden... I feel quite childish because of this lol :)) 

  • Paranoid or not, I trust my gut! If it walks like a duck......
