I was able to take part in an amazing group of people learning all sorts of interesting stuff under a very talented human being. He was so different I wondered many times if he was human or not, and I am not joking when I say that. We went on a retreat once to a beautiful place in the mountains that was an AA retreat for many years. A really special sort of place for sure. During that three days we practiced mental stuff, working with our intuition and beginning mindsight and perception training. A lot of strange things happened during that time.
One lady who was rather new to the group sorted a deck of cards three times in a row into red and black piles with her eyes covered. She freaked herself out so badly she quit the group. It really shook her up to see that happen.
This huge cabin type place was a large open dorm of sorts upstairs with about 12-15 or so beds in it, all open floor plan. The downstairs was set up really nice with a master bedroom that the lady that owned the place originally had slept in and a large kitchen with facilities to cook for a lot of people. She bought this whole place and dedicated it to healing addictions, and lived there the majority of her life, and when she passed she left it to AA as a retreat with an endowment to keep it up. She truly loved the place. The first night several people saw an old lady walking through the dorm room and seemed to be checking on everyone in the middle of the night. Nobody thought much of it until the next day when the subject came up and they all realized that there was no woman of that description in our group. My wife and I brought cots and slept out by the fire that night. My teacher and his wife slept in the master bedroom downstairs.
The next day they suddenly decided to set a tent up down by the river, but never mentioned anything happening. That night one of the older psychic ladies decided to move in there for the night so she could sleep comfortably. Two hours after we all went to bed for the night, she came out of there all flustered saying that the old woman was in the room with her, and decided to move back upstairs with everyone else. Out by the fire, my wife and I thought it was pretty funny how shook up she was considering she is a person who is a psychic for a living.
Anyhow it got damn cold that night, and we were freezing out back on the cots by the fire. We decided ghost or no ghost we were going to go sleep in that nice warm bed. As soon as we climbed into the bed I had the strongest impression that we had disturbed someone, like they were sleeping in the bed when we came piling in there. Not long after the lights were out, I felt someone tap me on the back of my calf. I kicked my leg out and pulled the blankets up over my head, and then Melissa asked me, "Did you do that?" and tapped me on the back. "What?" I asked. She said someone had put their hand on her ankle and shook her leg like someone trying to get her attention.
Having lived in a couple of pretty active houses in our lives, we were not that upset about anything that minor. I asked her if she wanted to go back out on the cots, and she laughed and said, "Hell no, she didn't!" She snuggled up under the big thick comforter. I followed suit and decided to just ignore anything else that happened, and we slept great that night, but the old lady made another middle of the night stroll through the dorm upstairs. We have shared many a good laugh about this whole group of spiritualists and healers and psychics that got so shook up over a little old lady ghost.
Several more really interesting things happened that weekend that would apply here, but this is long enough for now.
