“After a while, they sat down on a bench, and the dog sat down in front of them, unmoving, staring quietly all the time.”

I’ve traveled all over the world, and recently I discovered a new wonderland, New Zealand. What a wonderful place. What wonderful people.

But, boy did I have a most unusual experience there. I can certainly say that. It was early Sunday morning, and I was taking my usual morning walk when I passed a young couple pushing a stroller.

I stopped and chatted for a while, and I noticed that their dog, which was a little ragged-looking and an obvious mixture of several breeds, kept staring at me. After a few minutes, without it ever taking its eyes off me, I became a bit unsettled. I asked them if their dog looked everyone in the eye, and did so without ever looking away.

What they told me gave me the chills.

He was apparently lost or homeless when he literally walked up to them in the park and started following them. There was no one else in sight, and he didn’t have any dog tags. And just like he was doing to me, he kept staring at them. After a while, they sat down on a bench, and the dog sat down in front of them, unmoving, staring quietly all the time.

They felt they had no choice but to take him home which was several blocks away and not in a straight line. What they couldn’t understand and still can’t explain to this day is that when they got up, the dog rose too and walked in front of them, leading the way.

The mutt had no idea where they lived but somehow, instinctively, he led them right to their front door where he sat down and looked at them as they walked up the walkway to the door.

No one in the neighborhood had ever seen the dog before so there was no way he could have known where they lived. The couple relayed one more thing. This wasn’t the only time the dog led them somewhere. He often leads the way, rarely making a mistake as to where they are going. It’s as if this stray dog is a mind reader.

And he never makes a wrong turn. Not even on the day they first found him and took him home, or rather he led them home.

“I never thought it could happen to me.”

I’ve read about it, I’ve seen it in movies, but I never thought it was real.  I didn’t think it was possible for one person to place a curse on another.

But it happened to me.

Some time ago, I had a run in with a particularly evil person who lives down the block.  No one likes this woman, and ever since I moved into the neighborhood, I’ve heard about the weird happenings that have occurred inside her house.

One story has it that she has a mentally-challenged son in his forties that she is ashamed of, keeps him inside the house and rarely lets him see the light of day.  I’ve never seen him and I’ve lived on the block for almost twenty-four years.

Anyway, on that fateful day back in December 2007, I was walking my Sheltie when he slid his head from beneath his collar and ran off down the street.  He scampered into the woman’s yard, and I could hardly believe my eyes when she started screaming and throwing large stones at him.

I walked up to the fence and as calmly as I could, I asked her to stop trying to hurt my dog.  After all, this was not a Pit Bull; this was a sweet little dog that wouldn’t hurt a fly.

Well, this woman looked at me with such ferocity that I was quite taken aback.  Then she pointed a finger right at my eyes (we were several feet from one another), and she mumbled something beneath her breath.  But I heard the word “curse,” and that’s when I picked up my dog and walked away as fast as I could.

The next day I developed a severe rash on my leg that came out of nowhere.  It stayed with me for a full week until I happened to walk my dog past the “witch’s” house.  She peered out from the open window and said, “Let that be a lesson to ya.”

The rash disappeared that night.  I will believe to my dying day, that old witch had put a curse on me.

In my wildest dreams, I never thought it could happen to me.  Fortunately, she and I have never crossed swords again, and I am now a believer that certain people have powers the rest of us simply cannot comprehend.

“She knew the thought was coming from me.”

I was on a flight from Los Angeles to Tampa, Florida when I realized I had forgotten to leave the key under the front doormat for my friend Alice who was going to feed and walk the dogs.

Because she’s one of the few people who doesn’t carry a cell phone, there was no way I could call to tell her that I always hid a spare key in the shed beside the garage.  I could visualize my two collies running around the house, desperate to get outside to relieve themselves.  I could also visualize Alice’s look of disappointment and frustration at not being able to get inside the house.

The moment I got off the plane my cell phone beeped and it was Alice.  I started to apologize and explain where the extra key was hidden, and I was taken aback when she said she had found it and everything was OK.

I didn’t understand, as I had never revealed the extra key to her, but she said when she was standing in front of the door, the image of the key on a shelf in the shed kept appearing in her mind.  She said she knew the thought was coming from me, and she wasn’t the least bit surprised when she found the key precisely where she had envisioned it.

I’ve had somewhat similar experiences with my sister Jodi over the years but never with anyone else.  Even to this day, I’ll get an “instant message” from Jodi, and I’ll pick up the phone and tell her exactly what she had relayed telepathically.

“She heard guitar music coming from the basement downstairs”

I’ve received your emails for a couple of years now, and I never would have believed I’d be writing to you with my own “out-of-the-ordinary” experience.

It happened a couple of weeks ago when I arrived home from a business trip back east.  The first thing that seemed to be “different” was my dog, Henry, who just sat there instead of jumping up and down and doing his best to bowl me over.

I usually leave him with Jane who stays in my house when I’m away.  It costs about the same as boarding, and this way Henry is not cooped up.  I also feel confident that my house isn’t sitting in the dark each night, making an inviting target for some thief.

For some reason, when Henry first spotted me, he didn’t even bother to get up.  He merely raised his head while remaining lying on his side.  I thought perhaps he was sick but Jane assured me he was fine but a bit scared.

“Scared,” I asked?  “What does he have to be scared about?”  It was such a strange comment.  But not at all strange when Jane told me what had transpired a few days after I had left.

She said that in the middle of the night she had heard guitar music coming from the basement downstairs.  She said she was scared out of her mind, started to call the police, but thought better of it and went downstairs to check it out.

“I took Henry with me for protection,” she said, although she and I both know that Henry runs for cover at the first sign of trouble.

Jane went on to tell me what she saw.  “As I was walking down the stairs leading to the basement, I saw the figure of a young man out of the corner of my eye.  Normally, I would have run back upstairs and out the house, but I didn’t feel the least bit threatened.  It was as if he wanted to say something to me.

“Then when I walked down the final step, I saw that he was holding a guitar, and although he was moving his hand up and down as if he were playing it, I heard no sound.

“And then he vanished right in front of my eyes.  I glanced down at Henry whose tail was between his legs.  He was slowly creeping behind my legs, the brave protector dog that he is.”

When I asked Jane what the young man looked like, I knew at once he was the son of the people who rent out the house to me.  I met him once, just weeks before he passed away from a long-term illness a year ago on Christmas day.

“I kept shouting in my mind, ‘lie down, lie down'”

My wife and I were taking a walk in the neighborhood and we were stunned when we came across an unnerving sight.

Two youngsters were hovered over an apparently injured dog and they summoned us over to help them.  The Golden Retriever was lying on its side without an apparent injury.  He was able to raise his head, and typical of his breed, he licked anyone who tried to pet him.

But something was wrong because he wasn’t even trying to get up.

Then a passing car screeched to a halt, and a woman jumped out of the car.  “Sampson, Sampson,” she shouted as she rushed over to the dog.  “Oh I’m so happy I found you.”

And at that moment, the dog leaped to his feet, and you could almost see the joy in his face.  I explained to the woman that Sampson had refused to get up, and we didn’t know what was wrong with him.  She replied that Sampson had run off when the gardener had accidentally left the back yard gate open.

She went on to explain that she knew when a dog was lost it had a tendency to run and run until it was exhausted.  And the dog could end up tens of miles away from home.  “So,” she went on, “I kept shouting in my mind ‘lie down, lie down,’ with the hope I could silently communicate with him.”

I would have been skeptical had I not witnessed the event with my own eyes.  It was the most amazing thing I had ever witnessed.

“If I hadn’t seen it I wouldn’t have believed it.”

I am fifteen and a friend of mine said you publish true psychic stories if they meet two criteria:  they’re true and they’re interesting.

Here’s my story.  It’s true.  You can be the judge if it’s interesting or not.

My first and last boyfriend, Jeremy (not his real name as to not embarrass him), and I used to go down to the lake and hang out.  He is very shy and it took quite a while for him to even put his arm around my shoulders.

But one afternoon, I kind of kept leaning against him and he really didn’t have a choice but to hold me.  I could tell he was a bit nervous about it and sensed that maybe he had never done that before, but I could also tell he liked it and was very excited.

Anyway, just as I thought things would start to get interesting, we noticed a duck that was hobbling along, trying to fly but not being able to get off the ground.  Then we realized it had a broken wing, and we knew it was a matter of time before some animal killed it.

At first we tried to approach it, but it kept running away from us, stumbling and hurting itself more.  The more we tried, the more afraid it got.

Then Jeremy said, let me try something.  He asked me to move further away from the bird, which I did.  Then he sat down and closed his eyes.  Well, the darndest thing happened.  That duck at first kept walking away and by now it was thirty or forty yards away.  But then it stopped, slowly turned and looked at Jeremy.

Then, and I still find it hard to believe, it walked back, all the way up to Jeremy and just about sat in his lap.

We were able to bring it to the local vet who was nice enough to treat the duck for free and not charge us anything.  And Jeremy explained that when he sat down he silently communicated with the duck and told it he meant no harm.

If I hadn’t seen it I wouldn’t have believed it.
