Do you believe in ghosts? Is reincarnation real? What is it like to receive visions from God? How would you handle it, if you received dire premonitions about family members and friends? Are UFO's visiting earth? Have you ever had a premonition while awake or in a dream? Do some people actually have ESP? Do we all have angels and/or spirit guides? What is it like living in a haunted house?
All these questions and more are topics of discussion in my Glimpses of the Paranormal newsletter. To get a free subscription, just e-mail me at marthajette.yahoo.com. I am interested in any stories you might have to share as well.

Goodness, it sure seems like a while since I’ve clicked that button to send off another issue of Glimpses of the Paranormal and for that, I must apologize. I took a three-month hiatus to co-write a book, which I can happily report is now complete. It is called “The Man With The Magic Spectacles” and is a spy/mystery novel. I’ve just sent it off to my publisher, who states that they are interested in it. Whohooo!
Rather than a personal story this month, I decided to begin 2007 with a series of articles on the UFO sighting at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago in November. Information is slowly filtering out about this event and if you keep reading, you’ll learn that we might have a photograph of the mysterious object as well!
First though, I would like to direct you to a site that I found quite interesting. It is entitled “Sleep Study Spirit.” The animated sequence of photos was captured during a sleep study. A ghost appears to enter from the right and exit to the left. It is difficult to say whether the spirit captured is an incoming ghost or the spirit of the person who is sleeping. During REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, it is believed we can leave our physical bodies.
UFO Sighting Over O’Hare International Airport
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, I’m sure you’ve heard about the UFO sighting at O’Hare International Airport in November. There were numerous witnesses to this event. However, air traffic controllers in the tower still maintain that they saw nothing. Hmm…
The National UFO Reporting Center has posted on their website (http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/053/S53541.html) an interview with one of the witnesses.
As stated on their site: "This individual was interviewed at length by one of the investigators involved in the follow-up investigation. The investigators were highly impressed with the witness's credentials and with the accurate description of the event. We deem this witness to be extremely highly credible. We express our sincere gratitude to this witness for his having shared the information about his sighting with NUFORC and with his fellow American Citizens."
"Ok I have been hesitant about talking about this, but after hearing the report on Coast to Coast AM with Mr. Noory, I cannot be silent. I work for a major airline at O’Hare. I am a taxi mechanic. I have the job responsibility of moving aircraft under their own power from gate to gate or the hangar complex for maintenance. We also accomplish the engine run-up testing needed. So I hope that does something for establishing a little of credibility for my report. I am still in absolute wonder and amazement at what I saw that afternoon.
"Around 1630 a pilot made a comment on the radio about a circle or disc shaped object hovering over gate C-17 at the C concourse in Chicago. At first we laughed to each other and then the same pilot said again on the radio that is was about 700 feet agl (above ground level). The day was overcast with the ceiling being reported at 1600 feet, if I remember correctly. I was taxing a Boeing 777 from the International Terminal to the company hanger on the north side of the airport.
As we passed the C Terminal on the Alpha taxiway, we observed a dark gray hazy round object hovering over O’Hare International Airport. It was definitely over the C Terminal. It was holding very steady and appeared to be trying to stay close to the cloud cover. The radio erupted with chatter about the object and the ATC controller that was handling ground traffic made a few smart comments about the alleged UFO sighting above the C terminal.
We had to continue moving the aircraft to the hangar. After parking, I noticed the craft of no longer there but there was an almost perfect circle in the cloud layer where the craft had been. The hole disappeared a few minutes later.
For the rest of the night there were jokes made on the radio about the sighting."
Special Thanks to Peter Davenport and the National UFO Reporting Center for taking the time and effort to do follow up investigations and interviews concerning this fascinating UFO sighting. http://www.nuforc.org/
As a former newspaper reporter/editor/photographer, I've been saying for quite a few years that the time has come for the media to pay attention to what is happening in their world, beyond the usual blood, guts and gore that we've grown so accustomed to. There is much more to our world that may at first not seem so evident and people are thirsting for this information.
I'm talking not just about the paranormal world, but also truthful and insightful reporting on UFOs. As most of you know, there was a major UFO incident at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago last week and one newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, was brave enough to jump on it. I am thrilled that reporter Jon Hilkevitch was not afraid to go out and investigate this incident and report what he learned directly from the witnesses.
The mass media has been asleep for far too long on many matters that could have an unimaginable impact on us as not only human beings, but as a civilization on this planet. Hopefully, more mainstream papers will follow. In the article below, Jon Helkevitch gives his views on this issue and how some people are still - even when faced with the evidence - joking about something that is really no laughing matter.
A purported UFO sighting at O'Hare gives
flight to hopes that we're not alone
By Jon Hilkevitch
the Tribune's transportation reporter
Published January 7, 2007
It's rare for a newspaper story to emerge from the vast and dark unknown and hit at a primal level, tapping into the fact that many of us feel so alone and confused about why we exist, and giving us a chance to hope, to dream.
Admittedly, those big thoughts were not on my mind when the director of a UFO-watching group first called to offer an exclusive Chicago angle on what might be the biggest story of all humankind--a visit by an alien spaceship.
No, ET had not phoned home. But, said Peter Davenport of the National UFO Reporting Center, this was "an excellent, stunning case involving a genuine UFO from some other part of our galaxy or our universe."
We've all read similar reports--and then put them back on the shelf--while waiting in the supermarket checkout line. I recall one tabloid front page announcing that aliens had abducted Newt Gingrich.
Not surprisingly, they gave Newt back.
Covering UFOs seemed to be stretching the definition of my job, transportation reporting. I looked at the clock on the newsroom wall and decided to give Mr. Davenport two minutes. But he was onto something.
The UFO story, published Monday, became the most-read piece to appear on chicagotribune.com. It was the top story on the Tribune web site for four straight days, garnering more than 1 million page views from people around the world.
The reaction is proof that we live in a curious world. Maybe a curious universe too.
It turns conventional notions about what people want to read and hear about on their head. And it lays bare the reality that huge numbers of people explicitly mistrust the government, the military establishment
and the aerospace industry when it comes to UFO sightings and research.
In our first of many phone conversations, Davenport assured me that highly credible individuals spotted a flying saucer-like object Nov. 7, and that it hovered over a major site on my Tribune beat: O'Hare
So I interviewed the witnesses and tracked down some additional observers--pilots, ramp workers, mechanics and management officials at United Airlines.
They were all dead serious about what they saw, and the
accounts--whether made from the tarmac or from 25 feet up in the cockpit of a Boeing 777--were consistent.
The unidentified aerial phenomenon was dark gray and shaped like a disc, it hovered in a fixed position above Concourse C of the United Airlines terminal, and it vanished with a burst of energy that cut a hole in the overcast skies.
The fact that officials at United Airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration initially denied any knowledge of the incident--despite evidence I had that they were well aware of it--made the story even more appealing.
Little did any of us know.
News organizations from a low-watt radio station in Delaware to a TV station in Australia phoned me to request interviews. Jay Leno cracked jokes on the "Tonight Show" about inebriated workers at O'Hare.
Ufologists contacted me in droves with thanks for treating the subject in a serious manner and congratulated the Tribune, as a leading member of the mainstream media, for publishing a story about an extraterrestrial sighting.
The reaction is perplexing and somewhat discouraging. But clearly it speaks to the persistent fascination with the possibility that we're not alone in the universe, and there are mysteries of our existence
still to be unraveled.
Dominique Callimanopulos understands why the UFO story is so seductive.
"When I was doing UFO research, I found that the sightings hit most people in a very child-wonder place," Callimanopulos said. She assisted the late Dr. John Mack, who became infamous at Harvard Medical School for researching UFO and alien encounters.
"People think this visit will be some sort of answer or salvation, that beings from another world will be able to help us solve the mess we've made on this planet," said Callimanopulos, a board member of the
John E. Mack Institute, founded in honor of the Pulitzer Prize-winning physician.
"Everyone at some deep level does wonder why we are here. That is why there are so many religions in the world and conflicting belief systems," she said. "If we were to find our cosmic friends, we would have a real family, finally."
It would be nice if physical evidence existed to substantiate the claims made at O'Hare on Nov. 7. Airport surveillance cameras are trained on the airfield, not the heavens, and FAA radar has so far
turned up nothing unusual.
How is it that someone smuggled a camera cell phone into a Baghdad execution chamber to chronicle the hanging of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein last month, but no one among the thousands of airport
workers and travelers at O'Hare snapped a picture for the cosmic family photo album?
The answer, along with an explanation about how the universe works, remains a mystery. We earthlings possess inquisitive minds, but we are, after all, only human.
Update on O'Hare UFO
The UFO incident which occurred at Chicago's O'Hare Airport in early November of 2006 has been the biggest UFO news item since the Mexican military video of 2004. The O'Hare case has been carried on CNN, and many other major news outlets.
It is now confirmed that at least one photograph was taken of the object. There may be more. Researchers are trying to get the individual who took the photo to come forward. There are job considerations and privacy issues at stake, but there is still a chance we may yet see a photo of the UFO.
Secondly, a pilot who saw the UFO has come forward and been interviewed by Peter Davenport of NUFORC on the Jeff Rense radio program. You can download the mp3 file from the Rense web site. The link is on the front page.
