We very recently had a post about Einstein where I try to say all those things, but it gets a bit exhausting sometimes. I have painstakingly written quotes from books, because copy and pasting is not possible.
When I have told of my para- experiences, she will never accept them as such, the nicest she can say about them is that I BELIEVE it happened. Just like you say when showing your bowl, how nothing else will move the foil, you say that you could be called a liar. I have not been called that, only a believer, meaning I don't know what I am doing.
I am a true sceptic, but I know what I know.
I think I might do that foil thing, after all, without the bowl. Maybe with paper. I ought to find out what is already vibrating inside me. Hope not Parkinson's, my hands are very steady.
And it is not always happening.
