The Queen's Meme-Magic or The Gift?

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #14
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

This meme is called
Do you believe in magic?

It's all about those things we can't explain, things that go bump in the night, and other freaktacular occurrences. In this crazy world of ours, what's normal anyway??! We'll even talk about sparks of a pleasurable kind....if you dare. And since I'm in a daring mood, let's get started. Good luck. And please, try to stay out of the dungeon this week.
It's getting cold down there this time of year.

1. Tell us about your superstitions. Do you have any? Do you "x out" black cats on the windshield of your car, avoid cracks in the sidewalk or practice other rituals that make you feel safer?

Don't have any? Come on now! Make up some....
Believe in yourself and your Higher Power and you will never fear the ravages of those entities that would harm you.
2. Has anything paranormal ever happened to you that you can write about?

Few will believe that my beloved husband has visited me frequently in the 3 years since his death. But I can prove these breath-taking and powerful events...

3. Have you ever had a near-death experience?

Care to share?
In recent times, I have been close to death twice in a year. Yet never had the near-death experience. My belief in not experiencing is this: I did not require it for deep in my soul I know what the Other Side is about; I know the glorious colors and buildings and the richness of life beyond the Veil. I cannot remember now, yet I KNOW. Upon my return, I shall recognize that I am now and forevermore, truly Home.
4. Pheromones...aka "love fireworks" (I think I remember those)...are a force to be reckoned with. Do you believe that two people can have an uncontrollable chemical reaction to each other? How do you know this to be true?

Pheromones are the body's reaction when two souls recognize each other. It well and truly exists for I have experienced it with my beloved.

5. Do you believe that modern day witches can put spells on people?

If so, who would you like to hoodoo and why?
Wiccan is a recognized and misunderstood religion and those who are members believe in a Higher Power. "Hoodoo" is so cliche. See my answer to Number 1.

6. ESP! What do those letters stand for in your life?

Ah! ExtraSensory Perception! The 60's and 70's "paranormal" and "psychic". To me? Great gifts we all have if only we recognize them.
7. Do you ever hear strange noises in your house?

If so, what do they sound like?

Knocking on walls, the bookshelves at the head of my bed, footsteps, thumping at the foot of my bed. Many of these after asking. Communications.

8. Tell us about a time you "knew" something was going to happened before it did. Are you one of those intuitive types or do you know someone who is ? Do tell.

Many times I have known the phone was going to ring and who it would be. And "known" by the way the ring sounded.

9. I'm a tad gifted in the dream department. Really. Sometimes my dreams are prophetic and come true. It can be a blessing and a curse. Has this ever happened to you? If not, would you like to have this gift? (Be careful what you wish for. It can be freaky at times.)

Many of my dreams are lucid dreams where I recognize that I am dreaming. My grandfather has visited me this way. He sits in a rocking chair in the corner of my mind and I leave my dream to go to him. When the visit is finished I return to my dream. Still other dreams are actually astral visits. One night before going to sleep I asked God to allow an astral visit to meet my husband. I remember grabbing Ron's face and squeezing it, deliriously happy and shouting, "God said, 'Yes!'" That was one of the most moving experiences of my life! I still get tears in the remembering!

LOVED your answers!

I think these answers were close to your heart, my Lady.

This was a great meme and your answers fascinating. I love that description of "lucid dreams". It is hard to explain to someone who doesn't have them that you can know you are dreaming but react to a "normal" reality.

Loved all your answers but especially liked the pheromone answer. I couldn't agree with you more there.
