How Does One Know He/She Has Had a True PSI Experience?

In other words, what should convince you that what you experienced was real and actually took place rather than just imagining it did? Of course this assumes no chemical (alcohol/drugs) were present at the time. Is there any official (or unofficial) guidelines to follow in trying to prove (to yourself and others) that your experience was real and not just your imagination?

I have had a few of these psi experiences but have always doubted whether it was just my imagination or a reality event.

That's a great question Q!
Before I give my opinion, keep in mind that I am a skeptic and I have not yet been presented with sufficient evidence for me to be confident in paranormal events. Having said that, I think it's virtually impossible to determine what is "real" and what is "imagination." Things happen to people every single day that, to them, was something "real" and not imagined. However, the "mind" is an amazing, amazing thing. People see things all the time that they think is "real" but was actually imagined. And the further time separates us from the actual event, the more "imagined" it can become. If you get a good answer to your question from here or someplace else, please share!

Many years ago I had a weird night time experience that at first mystified me and being a skeptic, I not only questioned the event, I was able to explain it later.

I was at a local conservation area that has several ponds and open fields that was once a large farm. One night while just finishing a refreshing swim at one pond during a hot summer night, I saw a lot of moving blue-white lights above a field of tall grass some several hundred feet distant. They were too bright and too distant to be fireflies. I walked to the field and the lights grew scarcer the closer I got but I was able to see that the moving lights were actually small birds as they flew over the grass and were silhouetted against the brighter moonless sky . From the activity of the lights, it appeared that these birds were feeding on insects in the grass. But how/why were these birds emitting such light?

A week later, while walking along a service dirt road through the area at night (one thing I'm NOT afraid of is the dark and find it very relaxing) and off to the side of the road I could see something glowing on a path to a sitting site next to the road. Upon approaching the bright glow (no moon out), I discovered the glow was a luminescent type of fungi growing all over an old half rotted tree log. Looking at it with a flashlight, I saw lots of insects also on/around the log.

So I put my observations together and assumed the original lights above the tall grass were birds eating insects while their feathers were smudged with the glowing material from the luminescent log fungi (I have since seen many of these rotting logs covered with the glowing fungi) they also rubbed against while eating the log insects. I put some glowing fungi on my flashlight and it remained bright for over an hour. Did my original experience have a logical solution or (without my investigation) just one more unsolved sighting of lights at night? Without my skeptic mindset, I would have never found out the simple answer to my mystery lights over a field of tall grass. :)
