PSICAN - Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada

British Columbia

We received the following account in November 2013, however the events described below happened more than two decades ago. These experiences obviously affected the experient in profound ways, and continued on after the initial haunting.

"From the evening I moved into the building, and I went to bed I felt I wasn't alone. The air was stagnant and I smelt sweet red roses. I saw a fluorescent question mark in my head with someone else's feelings and thoughts...very weird!  This happened every night, but was not scary. One early evening me and my friend found a drinking glass that had the rim sliced off and placed over it on the counter. One morning a spoon and a plant were thrown in an arcing fashion into another room. 6 months later I called the UBC psychic society and they helped me to pass this "elderly woman" I had sensed over. She literally passed through me (very beautiful) and she was fine. She has since come back to me on 2 other occasions within 4 years!

I think she was stuck and I helped her to move on. I think she may have died in the apartment. She has come back to me with what I would say are gifts of information and my friend has also experienced this."

Our thanks and appreciation goes out to the witness for sharing these experiences with us. It takes courage to do so and even if we cannot fully explain these things at this time it does bring comfort to others to know they are not alone.

Webmasters note: Strong scents such as the witness describes with "sweet red roses" can accompany reports of hauntings, and is something I have personally experienced.
