Hello to everyone. I'm Tiffanitsa, your friendly moderator. I figured I should introduce myself. I'm 23, and have just become internationally certified to teach ESL. I'm also totally blind and have been ever since I was two months old. I've been interested in the paranormal for as long as I can remember, but it really picked up in high school. I've watched many documentaries etc on all sorts of phenomona and as soon as the opportunity arose, I took a course called Western Science and the Occult while in college. All that said, I still know very little about fringe sciences other than parapsychology and I'm hoping to change that. There are many ideas and studies out there waiting to be explored, and now that I've completed my college career, I'm interested in learning about them. I'm a Hellenic Polytheist, following the religion of ancient Greece along the reconstructionist line, so I know very little about magic, traditional or otherwise. But I do have a strong belief in the spirit world, and feel that I can tell when various spirits are present. I feel coldness, and if I've known the person and they were known for wearing a certain cologne or perfume, I'll usually smell it when there around and when there's no earthly explanation for the scent. I'm very glad to have the spirits in my life and wouldn't have it any other way. I would, however, like to improve whatever sixth sense I do have. this might prove difficult because so much involves visuals, but I'm sure I could find some way around that. Anyway, I look forward to hearing from all of you. Please feel free to express your opinions, share your experiences and your questions.
