by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Over the past several months we have shared many odd and wonderful experiences as well as a few perhaps not so wonderful experiences from my past. In our human condition it is always the hope that what's taken from it is learning and expanding for our minds. Coupled with that is my sincere hope that you have enjoyed reading about these experiences and have gotten something from it that keeps your mind wondering and exploring. As with many things in this life, changes are always constant. Growing, learning, and moving forward is always paramount. Part of that change is that this will be my last article that I share with you. I have enjoyed sharing these experiences with you and... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net On a recent visit to an area hospital lab for routine blood testing I was afforded an interesting morning. I walked into the lab waiting area, and signed in. I was told to take a seat and someone would be with me soon. I obliged, grabbed a magazine, and sat down and began thumbing through an outdated copy of some sports magazine. As I sat thumbing through pages I got the sensation that the room was very crowded and yet only myself and one other person were in there waiting. I also became keenly aware that although this was the "lab area" and waiting area, it was not always a lab, and that many sick people had passed here. Ordinarily... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Unexplainable occurrences by this time had become something I was getting used to but my fear grew in spite of that. When the radio was removed from my room due to unexplainable activity is when I realized it wasn't the radio "they" were following. The radio was simply a channel used to make their presence known, an attention getting avenue if you will. I became keenly aware of this when I began seeing shadows and shapes moving through the upstairs hallway of this house coupled with an acute sense of not being alone. It was like that feeling you get when someone invades your personal space and you are very aware of their presence. Have you ever noticed how you... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Seeing chairs move on their own would be enough to have any person questioning their sanity and perhaps others question mine even as they read this. Have you ever seen something, or heard something and it left you wondering? I think many people have and some more so than others. My fear in this house grew rapidly and seeing chairs move was the least of my worries I would soon find out. This is the time in my life that I became aware of being in tune and aware of something around other than the worldly things we know and recognize everyday. It led to many years of denial, fear and avoidance of many things that I did not as... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNEWS.net The following story is based on true experiences from my childhood. When I was a young boy around the age of 5 our family moved to a house that I will only refer to as "The House On Cleveland Avenue" as to not give its exact location. When my Mother first looked at the house to consider buying I was along when she met the realtor. I would not enter the house and insisted on waiting in the car. I knew immediately I wanted nothing to do with this house let alone live there. The strange thing is that it was an unassuming twin style house with nothing significant that jumped out at me. I simply sensed a very bad... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net An empathic person as I have pointed out in the past just seems to know things. Sometimes they aren't even sure why they know it, they just do. An empathic pyshic medium who has real abilities or "gifts" as they are sometimes referred to struggles with many things. Even their own emotions can play tricks on them. Imagine an extremely heightened sensation of everything around you and always trying to sort out what is your own, or perhaps someone else's. Everyone has felt empathy at times. Have you ever felt bad for another person, or felt joy and excitement for someone else perhaps? This is a degree of empathy. If you couple that with psychic medium-ship abilities it becomes a...

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Some symptoms, or behavior that indicate a persons empathic abilities are known to many of us. One of them is "knowing". Empaths just know things but its a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings. Have you ever experienced a situation and you "just knew" and you weren't even sure why or how? Another is sympathy pain, or picking up the on the ailments of others, empaths are keenly in tune and can often forewarn of things. I have on several occasions experienced predicting pregnancies, even before the Mother knew of it herself. They were later amazed to learn it was indeed accurate. To date, I have not been wrong thanks to morning sickness. Having such depth of... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNew.net We as human beings struggle to make sense of everything in our lives. The mind always clamors for logical answers. When psychic empathic traits or experienced sometimes those answers are elusive and confounding. I have read much about different levels and types of empathy. Have you ever experienced something "odd or weird" that you just could not explain? Some of the levels I have learned about are as follows and perhaps they may shed light on something you have wondered about. Twin Flame Telepathy – Said to be the empathic ability to read people's thoughts. Psychometry - said to be the empathic ability to receive energy, information and impressions from objects, photographs, or places. Mediumship - Said to the empathic... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Much has been written about our conscious mind and altered states. Being a bit tipsy or even under the influence of drugs is of course one altered state of consciousness, but I am talking about something a bit deeper going on in our minds.When we are fully asleep is a good example. We pass through various phases of sleep to achieve what science refers to as "REM" state, or the rapid eye movement of sleep. This is reportedly the deepest stage of sleep and is considered an altered state of consciousness. During this stage although unconscious we dream, and have nightmares, or even visions and thoughts, that at times seem quite vivid. From this we conclude that the mind in... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net I have been considered by many to be what is referred to as an "Empathic Psychic Medium". Family members, friends or associates who have experienced certain things with me have widely accepted that it just happens sometimes. I am thankful for that acceptance and cherish them for it. Many do not share their acceptance. Many ignore it because they do not want to know. Others take a dim view of it as trickery and sorcery. Others see it as something evil to be shunned and pushed away. The question of "Gifted or Cursed" is something I have struggled with for many years. It has at times been a gift yes, but other times more of a curse as well. One... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net At times our intuition tells us certain things. We don't always listen to it and even more rarely do we follow it. Sometimes intuition goes against what we know or want, making it even more difficult to trust. Have you ever had a "gut feeling" or thought "I should really do this" and regretted later not following that instinct? I think we have all been on that page at some time or other. Intuition can be difficult to understand. In retrospect to that it can also be said that "Sometimes you just know". This is how it was for me on a day sometime ago (I am 54, I was in my early 30's when this event occured) that a... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net The human condition is a phrase I have used in prior articles I have written and something we are all familiar with. While remaining subjective and even objective, one thing most would agree on is that we are spiritual beings living inside of a human body. Does this lend credibility to the idea spirits exist? Do the worlds, or planes of existence sometimes collide making themselves known to those on all sides? These are question we may never have definitive answers for although many search for answers. It is with this in mind we think of spirit energies, or aura's, of both living people, or spirits of those who already experienced the human condition. Do spirits living now, or those...

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net Sometimes those interested or involved in learning about the paranormal and spiritual things refer to some encounters or experiences as "residual" spirits. They are just there, and continue to do what they do or did in life. Have you ever had the feeling that a passed loved one is still around at times? On a more recent visit at the request of the home owner to a home in South Jersey, I believe I had such an encounter with someone still doing what they did in life. The home owner contacted me suspecting that perhaps someone, or some spirit energy may be in the home. Nothing nasty or evil was sensed by the home owner but a presence was suspected...

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net I was certainly glad to see some people share their interesting observations and thoughts on last week's photograph and thank you for sharing you thoughts about what you saw. I am now submitting the photograph again only this time with a red outline around something I see. Along with that I will share some background on where the photograph was taken and the history of the place in which it was taken. Other than the red outline I put it, once again the photo is unedited or enhanced. I realize it is subject to monitor settings, computer graphic capabilities, and of course subjective to the human eye and interpretation. The photograph was taken by me last summer in a long...

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net In this article I am submitting a photograph for your consideration. The photograph was taken by me at an undisclosed (for now) location. It has not been retouched, or enhanced or edited in anyway. It was taken with a simple digital camera and downloaded to PC, cropped a section of it and posted here for you to see. (Photo taken by: Earl Foster) After looking at it and considering the picture with no prior knowledge given to you yet, I would like to hear from some of you and ask you "What do you see" ? Our brain always struggles to make sense of the things we see. We attempt to put order and explanations to the things we see.... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net In last weeks column I made mention of a "dark entity" that I encountered when I was very young. Thinking of such things conjures up all sorts of images in our minds. It can invoke fears in us we would rather not subject ourselves to. Does this mean if we ignore them or choose not to acknowledge the dark things, do they no longer exist? In my humble opinion, absolutely not !! Rest assured that if we indeed believe in the good we also acknowledge our belief in the evil. Even in our human condition we know that not everything is always nice. With this in mind does it not hold true that everything outside of the human condition is... Continue reading

by Earl Foster / CNBNews.net I think everyone has at some point either heard, or coined the phrase "The angels must of been looking out for you" at some time or other. Perhaps a close call or a dangerous encounter of any kind has led you to wonder about this yourself. Have you ever seriously thought about the implications of that? Where did this idea come from or is it truly possible that they do indeed watch over and protect us? While we realize it is subjective and there are a wide variety of opinions about it there are also many who know it to be very true. I am one of the latter and I will share one of my many reasons with you... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net One of the most astounding events I have ever experienced took place in Sept. of 1994 while serving as a volunteer Firefighter in our borough. It was during this event I experienced some of the strongest sensations and loudest voice that I could remember in many years. This is a documented event and was covered in the media as well. I will now share this event for your consideration. This a true story in my own words. It is verifiable on the internet through news resources although I will not mention names or specifics out of respect to those who suffered a great loss during this tragedy. I would ask readers who may be familiar or remember this event to... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net When a person is thought to possess certain abilities people refer to it "being gifted". I can certainly see how it is thought to be a gift and used for good. I can also see how it can also be a curse at times as well. One such experience that I had when I was 5 years old left a lifelong impression that has remained with me vividly and affected a lot of my decisions in regards to strange experiences. I spent a lot of years in denial and fear choosing largely to try and ignore or hope it would go away. It was not until my later years in life that I decided to embrace and attempt to learn...

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net The very term "Empathic Psychic Medium" stirs our subjective thoughts and gives us pause. Empathy is to feel, sense and be very aware of the emotions, feelings, and even at times the motives of others. Everyone has at least some degree of empathy. I believe empathy to be a part of the human condition. How deep can a person's empathy really go? Can we really get to a point where we can indeed, see or feel and sense others? Would this include those on the spiritual existence? (Photo taken by Earl Foster) In last weeks article, I shared with you an experience of an "elderly gent" that I sensed in our home and what the outcome of that was. Now... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net (Photo: By Earl Foster "Face in the window") The subject of paranormal activity can be very subjective. Based upon who you talk with or who's opinion is being expressed you get a wide variety of thoughts. Certain circles even consider it taboo to even speak of it as if it has a stigma attached to it casting those who do attempt to gain understanding in an unacceptable light. A large part of understanding just about anything is of course acceptance. How can someone understand what they cannot accept? Acceptance is one large step in understanding anything but acceptance is difficult with so many distractions. We have all seen television shows with psychics making claims, or card readers, and fortune tellers.... Continue reading

By Earl Foster / CNBNews.net The "human condition" as it is sometimes referred to always seems to make us look for the logical order of things. We look for logical explanations of things based on what is known to us, the familiar and comfortable reasons. Each of us has wondered at some point in time "What just happened" ? Sometimes we don't find a logical explanation. When this occurs we struggle with that age old question of "What just happened" ? Its a question I have also wrestled with many times throughout my life. I don't profess to be able to provide all the answers in regards to that question. My personal and true experiences have left me with more questions than answers. We only... Continue reading

By Earl Foster/CNBNews.net Everyone experiences unusual or seemingly unexplainable occurances at some time. Some choose to ignore it as coincidence. Others choose to find logical explanations but don't really find one. Others endeavor to explore further and seek answers. If your like me than you fall into this last category. I am Earl Foster and I seek to find answers in something that seems more spiritual then our physical selves. I seek answers and knowledge because I have had many unusual experiences and unexplainable occurances over the course of many years. In future editions of this column I will share some of my experiences with you and I look forward to comments and input from those who are like minded and may have experiences of... Continue reading
