Your moment was YOUR moment. You cannot rewind, you cannot change the circumstance, you cannot sit in a room or a science lab and replicate it for anybody. You cannot make anyone else see or feel what you did. It was your eye opening experience, your proof, the thing that has likely changed you and your outlook.

Whilst science certainly has its place in investigations of the paranormal – and I personally believe we should use as much of these resources as possible it is perhaps worthy to remind ourselves that there will always be a different way to interpret results, to look at evidence. The only thing we can take from our experience is that we had it, and that it was enough to open our eyes to looking at things a different way. Science, by nature, demands a quantifiable, measurable and demonstrative set of results in order to accept something. The paranormal does not work this way. If what we believe is to be true, then the energy/ souls of those who have departed are a blessing when they reach out, but what they are not and never can be are puppets, waiting for us to act, to demand, to manoeuvre them to our ways. In as much as we will always seek to show others why we believe what we believe - and this is a natural response, particularly to heavy scepticism - and we may even arrive at a point where this is possible, it’s important to remember that the validity of millions of experiences of people the world over cannot be judged by our limitations of science and understanding. Our lack of understanding certainly doesn’t mean it never happened.
