Intelligent Haunting - The Night My Mother Died

Submitted by: Sean Barrette, Sudbury Ontario

It's November 13th as I write this. My mother died nine years ago on this date.

Mom had stayed with us in Sudbury while receiving care for her cancer. Unfortunately, the treatments didn't work, her cancer spread, and the evening prior to the night she passed I had gone up to Kapuskasing to be with her in her final hours.

ParaNorthern - The Night My Mother Died

My wife had to stay in Sudbury to make some arrangements and was going to join me there as soon as she could.

My mother succumbed to her cancer surrounded by her family. I said my goodbyes, took a little while to soak it all in, and then called my wife.

When she got on the phone, I said, "Mom is gone." 

"I know," she replied. 

I asked her if somebody had already called. She then explained that only a half hour or so earlier, right around the time Mom would have taken her last breath, the front doors on our house had both flown open simultaneously. 

Now, you might say, "It's November. Could have been the wind." 

However, one front door opens out, the other opens in - and BOTH had been locked and closed tight. (She prefers to keep the doors locked when I'm not home, and had checked to make sure they were locked not long before.)

Mom always believed that those who had gone before us were still with us, watching over us, sometimes playing practical jokes. 

You'll have a hard time convincing me that she didn't come to say goodbye to Lara, and prove that she had been right all along and was never going to be too far away. 

And she'd have thought making such a grand entrance by throwing those two locked doors open was hilarious.

This would fall into a category of paranormal events known as intelligent hauntings. An intelligent haunting is defined as an event that occurs when a spirit somehow makes its presence known. Free Spirit events such as the one described above often occur as spirits move back and forth through realms of existence, returning from time to time and under various circumstances.

Free spirits move around and are not limited by their geographical surroundings.

Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?

Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.

Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.

William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.

Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.

When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Way up.

Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)

So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.

But then I saw this video.
