The Haunting Newark State Custodial Asylum for Feeble-Minded Women ~ CNY Paranormal

Mysterious Phenomena

The Mysterious Phenomena Newswire From Paranormalnews.com:

Elevator Incident

I received the following account last evening. It is definitely one of the oddest submissions I have had the pleasure to read. MIB, lost time and a few other oddities mixed in.

An Early Example of Reality Shift?

They were alarmed at about four o'clock in the morning by terrible noises which they could not explain, and which frightened them very much. The bed seemed to open, and did all sorts of strange things. The floor, too, opened, and they heard voices. They were so terrified that they opened their bed-room window and leapt out.

The 'Golden Boy'

A wave of dread and terror rolled over the two of us. I have never before, or since, felt anything so intensely alien and malignant. It hated us.

Cuba Humanoid Reports

If you listened to the most recent Arcane Radio presentation, our guest Albert Rosales and I were discussing sightings in Cuba and the possibility that new reports will surface when more political restrictions are lifted. http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/arcane-radio/e/39942521?autoplay=true

Manifesting Mind Monsters

Many researchers of the paranormal (including myself) believe that some manifestations and poltergeist phenomena (objects flying through the air, doors slamming, etc.) are products of the human mind (tulpas or thought-form manifestation).

Flying Humanoid...or What?

I noticed an object floating a few feet above the road that reminded me of a vertical shrouded human body or a tightly wrapped mummy. It was all white in color but appeared to pulsate with light within. There were no wings or means of propulsion.

The 'Mountain of Death'

South of Cooktown, North Queensland is the 1000 foot tall ¿Black Mountain¿...also known by the Aborigine's as ¿Kalcajagga¿ (meaning the place of the spear or more loosely translated as mountains of death). The mountain is a huge pile of dark boulders 2 miles long and part of the Black Trevethen Range. Aborigines avoid the mountain, as well as birds and other animals.

Strange Day in Toronto

During the past three years I have been searching for follow-up information related to a series of strange incidents that occurred in the L'Amoreaux neighborhood of North York in metro Toronto, Ontario

Praying Mantis Humanoid Encounter - Greenville, SC

And suddenly I ran almost into a Humanoid Praying Mantis. At the time I thought it was a giant insect, I could not really comprehend what I was seeing. I felt like all the breath was taken from me.

An Unintended Tale?

I have a true story to share with you and your readers. This occurred in 1968 when I was 8 years old. My family lived in a large Italianate style home in western Pennsylvania. It had been my father's home when he was a boy and had been in his family since the 1850's.

Irish Fairies - The Good People

Fairies in Ireland are not the homogenized Disney version. They can shape shift, and are usually mischievous, and even dangerous. They don¿t like to be referred to as fairies, but instead to avoid injury by them, you should always call them the Good People.

¿Imp¿ Reported in Nueva Palmira, Uruguay
