encounters with real Ghosts: The Messengers
This strange and particular type of paranormal
phenomena or ghosts may be the most common
that many experience today. Banshee's are
a type of Messenger heralding the upcoming
death of a person.
In Irish legend, a banshee
wails around a house if someone in the house
is about to die. There are particular families
who are believed to have banshees attached
to them, and whose cries herald the death
of a member of that family. Traditionally,
when a citizen of an Irish village died, a
woman would sing a lament (in Irish: caoineadh
, "caoin" meaning "to weep,
to wail") at their funeral. These women
singers are sometimes referred to as "keeners"
and the best keeners would be in much demand.
Legend has it that, for five great Gaelic
families: the O'Gradys, the O'Neills, the
O'Briens, the O'Connors, and the Kavanaghs,
the lament would be sung by a fairy woman;
having foresight, she would sing the lament
when a family member died, even if the person
had died far away and news of their death
had not yet come, so that the wailing of the
banshee was the first warning the household
had of the death.
In later versions the banshee might appear
before the death and warn the family by wailing,
screaching or howling likea hound from hell
. When several banshees appeared at once,
it indicated the death of someone great or
holy. The Texas Banshee tales sometimes recounted
that the woman, though called a ghost lady,
was a lost spirit and not a wandering unknown
ghost, often of a specific murdered woman,
or a woman who that you would have known that
died a horrible slow death or in childbirth
Marshall, Texas Banshees are frequently described
as dressed in all white or light blue or grey
robes, and often having long, grey, black
or wirey wild hair with bluing or purpleish
skin. The Texas Banshee also come s to those
to warn of impending doom in dreams or in
a stage at awakening. Dream Banshee's are
often vague Shadow people hooded or robed.
A prominent family in Marshall tells of a
Banshee like being that visited several members
in a family on a particular night in January
2008. 5 different households witnessed a blackish
shadow robed and hooded paranormal being waking
over 24 different family members that night

The Lost Soul Of A Loved
One Or Not
Lost souls or known ghosts
or spirits usually appear to family members
shortly after their deaths to people close
to them. Some often report seeing the dead
person standing over the foot of their bed
for one last goody bye. They are aware of
their deaths and can interact with the living
letting them know they have so died. They
most often do this to bring messages of comfort
to their loved ones, to say that they are
well and happy, and not to grieve for them.
or that is what many believe. These ghosts
appear briefly and usually only once. It is
as if they intentionally return with their
messages for the express purpose of helping
the living cope with their loss.
This type e of strange haunting or paranormal
experience commonly involves a one-time visit
to someone with whom the apparition had a
close emotional ties. Ex Lovers, Husbands,
Wives, anyone with an attachment to you could
be the apparition. And often those that encounter
such ghosts or very unnerved for a feeling
of danger or loss, doom or horror is in your
mind for a long time. And don't count out
even the apparitions of lost or dying pets.
Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The great American Necromancer
calls these ghosts "Death Tellers or
Doom Speaker Apparitions." Though the
encounter usually seems to last less then
a minute or two, They are only to be a type
of farewell. Though sometimes important and
useful information is relayed to the Person
who experiences them. but the encounter is
very short in duration. Though dying is the
most common reason they appear, other impending
doom or even financial gloom to a person even
a life-threatening or emotional situation
warrant these particular ghost to come to
you. Some ghost are even just fortellers of
things to come nothing more. Also
