Paranormal Perceptions ~ Believing
The Paranormal Perceptions series was created to gather some of the most interesting authors that are using paranormal elements in their stories. Every author has their own perceptions and provides their own insight on all things paranormal, ranging from urban legends and paranormal research, to myths and inspirations. This week on the guest series is author of the Visionary Trilogy, author N. Dunham (@ndunham151).
Do I believe in paranormal experiences? Well, I have always believed in the supernatural. I have had too many unexplained odd occurrences to not believe. To be able to define what it is I believe exactly though, is rather difficult to put into words. But, I do believe that things happen for unknown reasons.
My book, Visionary-Unleashed, incorporates psychic phenomena and spirit animals into a fantasy fiction for young adults. I carefully selected fifteen spirit animals to represent each sign of the zodiac plus three additional animals, one of them being the red tailed hawk. These spirit animals help and provide visionaries, people who can see things before they happen, with extraordinary powers.
The funny thing about this, is that during the entire time I wrote my novel, I must have seen a red tailed hawk almost every day. I would see them fly in front of me. I would look up and spot them on telephone poles and trees. It was pretty awesome. I took it as a good sign. Some people think that the red tailed hawk represents a bad omen but actually, I have learned that it symbolizes a good omen and that they are associated with the base chakra. I found all of this information fascinating and if you look online you can find a lot more detailed information.
So yes, to some degree I believe that there are things that are beyond our control and things that are simply unexplainable but it is how you perceive them that is important.
