I'm on the maybe side of the fence. I have not had a definitive experience yet so I have to vote maybe. Although, I'm not sure how i would react if I came face to face with an experience like that. Would i run or stay and chat? I know there was an experience when I was much younger but I can't really point my finger and say, yep it's definitive. For all I know it could have been an over active imagination.
Do I believe that ghosts exist? Not just "yes", but "hell yes".
I've been touched by them, seen them, heard them, and had my stuff moved/stolen by them. I have been unnerved, startled, creeped out and annoyed by them most of my life, so I have no choice but to believe. I have also witnessed my animals' behavior in regard to things that I can neither sense nor see but that they clearly can.
All of these are just personal experiences. While other people have shared some of them, I have no hard evidence and frankly, I have no desire to get any hard evidence. It's difficult enough to live with these events as it is. I sure as heck don't want to have to deal with hard proof!
For instance, I know that there is a man who "lives" here and I've seen him and so has my husband. He has touched me on the arm, twice (which I absolutely HATE, by the way), turned lights on and off, etc. Do I want to have a picture of him for the family album? No Way! I don't want to see him or have conversations with him. I don't care who he is or what he wants. I don't want to encourage him to hang around in any way. What I'd really like is for him to move on but I don't think that he can, so we have an uneasy truce. He's stopped creating a commotion while I'm trying to sleep and I don't try to force him to leave. It works for us.
As for gathering evidence for other people, I don't think any evidence would satisfy the scoffers anyway, so what's the point? If I produced a two-hour documentary of EVPs and photos, skeptics would claim that it was faked, or didn't show enough angles to make fakery impossible, etc. You can't win over people who are determined not to believe and I have no interest in doing so.
I don't think anyone really believes in ghosts until they actually experience one. Once you do have a real experience, you can't really be a non-believer anymore.
I'm a 35 yrs old "boy" from Ita, new on this really interesting forum since a couple of days and due to the matter I'm not be able to find any place where I can fill a quickly presentation, as netiquette request when a new member join in a discussion group, I have to go straight and start to post immediately my own experiences…with my all apologies for the way I abdopted to introduce me and for my poor language skills!!
Well, as I already filled in this post, I straightly believe in ghost because during my life I have had several paranormal episodes, probably due to the matter I born in an ancient noble family with a really strong heritage with medianic and paranormal activities/skills ( due to the history I born to the compound of an ancient jewish family (with the surname "Ottolenghi", "Langley" in England, USA ) and ont the other side, the Count of St. Germain probably born into my mother's family during one of his terrestrial incarnations ) as explanations of this straight strange skills…
All these matters, since I was really young, about 3/4 yrs old, made me start to have some really strange "meetings" with spirits and ghost's voices, who predict to myself some important events, included the exactly period where my father gonna meet his death, when I had to be just 18…
A couple of yrs after this last prediction, unfortunately happened with a really extraordinary accuracy, I had my first a singular tactiles experience ( hit! ) with a spirit who give me a sort of warning about the what I have had to break the engagement with a girl in the deepest I didn't love ( instead of I tried to convince myself she was the right people for my life ) to avoid her sufferences, and after I spoken about it with her, she told me I probably met her personal protector, unvolontary called during a spiritic contact tentative, she had in that house sometimes ago…then, agree with the spirit warning, a couple of days after the matter I broken the engagement…
Now, I'm living in an haunted house near Rome ( really faraway from my hometown in the north of Italy, due to business affairs ) and meet shadows/ghosts, hear strange voices, and all the related to it is becoming a daily "bullet-point" or better, a sort of invisible friends for me, instead of some of them who currently got the bad habits to give me some noisy matters…( due to the fear I'm gonna mad I met psychologist and analysts but nobody told me I'm serious minded ill )
The last episode related to ghostly presences, I had, is due to last Sunday, in the north Italy again, where I went to visit an haunted village and met some spirits which gave me accurated instructions related to some points I have had to met during the exploration of the haunted place, and with a really high surprise of the 3 guys were with me during the paranormal investigation, all the matters I spoken about them a couple of minutes before we start the visit of the places…
True or False, as you prefer to believe, I can assure You, ghosts, spirits, entity and all the other paranormal forces had been, is going, and will be existing since the world's creation, the only matter against it, is the human race prefer deny this probability, probably because the deny way it's just easier than the understanding way…
With all my Respect to You All
Many thanks Lady Mystical, I'm glad and honoured I can join and partecipate in the large amount of "activities" of your really interesting forum!!/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
I sincerly hope I can receive a lot of post in reply to my one, because I feel the need to compare a lot of my own experience with each others one…
We're probably really close to a change of Age and I strongly think all the people in the Earth need to become a little bit wisdomed and starting in believe/accept all the really oldest strange things, which had been happen,is happening,and will happen, since the whole world creation!!/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
I have experienced the "ghosts" as many call them since I was a little tot. Once the snow starts to fly, I will share some more of my experiences of the paranormal. It has been quiet in my home but sometimes they let me know that they are still around. It's been a while since anything happened that really scared me but I still get goose bumps at times. Most of the spirits that visited my house have been friendly. I fear the evil and troubled spirits that have caused me harm in the past or frightened the wits out of me. This paranormal web site and forum has all friendly people here. This forum is my home to share my experiences and my thoughts.
Over on this side of the world the majority are brought up to ridicule such things, so there's very little serious interest. I've no doubt that people witness many strange things, but the difficulty is getting them to talk about it I find.
I saw various online polls that suggested between one third to over half of the people believe in ghosts and paranormal events. I am a believer because I have seen, heard and felt them. Unless one has experienced an event, how could a non-believer know?
My belief is that ESP, channeling, clairvoyance, telepathy, dreams that come true and other strange happenings are all connected to the spirit world. I sometimes wonder where my thoughts come from.
http://www.psychicscience.org/…..os.aspx#DE Here is a good psychic science web site for a listing and short description of paranormal terminology and words. I am not promoting the web site but it has a long list of paranormal terms and words with a short description of each.
I believe in UFOs and life on distant planets light years away. Our sun is a star. Looking at the night skies, I see millions of stars and wonder what planets with life orbit around those distant suns. I was never abducted by aliens or saw a UFO described by many. Years ago around the mid 1960s, I saw something up in the night sky that didn't make sense at all. It wasn't any aircraft or firefly that I would be familiar with. This blinking light that resembled the strobe light of an aircraft in the night skies went in a straight line and several times made sharp 90 degree turns. Aircraft that I am familiar will change directions in wide curves.
My desktop computer is located in my spare bedroom and I have my cat's perch located next to my chair. My cat comes to join me when I spend an hour or two doing online research. When my cat comes to visit, I can see her walking toward me in my side vision. There have been a few times that I turned my head to look directly at her but she was not there. The same for the few times that she would rub herself against my leg and I would look down to pet her and she was not there. This has been happening for a couple of weeks now. It must have been one of the friendly spirits letting me know of its presence.
