The Paranormal

https://www.yourghoststories.com/

Do you believe in ghosts/spirits? I've had some experiences with them and find it an interesting topic. I recently found this forum and some interesting stories.

Re: The Paranormal

Ive seen two......
When I was 10, I would get up early to watch the lone ranger on TV, I had to wait till 6 am before I could turn the TV on, so I would sit in front if it with my brother waiting. That was when the tv were big and the glass would reflect everything in the room. I saw a little boy in the reflection standing by a a chair, when I looked in the room at the chair you could not see him. My brother saw him also. I made my little brother go stand by him, then wave, we could see him and my brother reflected in the tv. We both got scared and ran to our parents. Then he was gone. Some 30 years later my brother and I talked about it, we both still remembered it.... But that was all that happened.....

Re: The Paranormal

I'm a firm believer that animals do have spirits too, and here are the stories of two such dogs.

Re: The Paranormal

I do in principle and believe they are artifacts of multiple dimensions. For reasons beyond our understanding, they may intersect and cause an "appearance." Another explanation is our brains are evolving and the ability to perceive the paranormal is unevenly distributed.

Re: The Paranormal

I went to a restaurant where the entrance was comprised of a hall with a lattice partrition on one side and solid wall on the other. This hall went to where you got food in a buffet. As I was moving in line I turned around to see a rather stern looking man staring at me. I turned away but a few minutes later turned toward him again but he was gone. There was absolutely nowhere he could have gone but around me, which he did not, or back out the front door. Within a minute of not seeing the man two ladies were comng in. When they got up behind me I asked them if they had seen a man going back out the front door but they said no. I've always thought he was a ghost.

Re: The Paranormal

For the vast majority of my life, we lived in a very large turn of the prior century home.

Having 'guests' is, IMHO, a standard part of large older homes as near all family events occurred in the home, from birth to death.

So, in addition to the common movement of large homes as the seasons change and the vast number of individuals over the years, yup, guests...

After a bit, its just living in a wonderfully large older home...

FYI: Mrs. Boats came up with the idea of installing an operational phone in the third floor ballroom. Once in place, protocol was to inform 'guests' that it is only proper to first call before visiting...

Re: The Paranormal

Good thread... it never hurts t take a sidestep or two from the beaten path.

I'm pretty open-minded. Any meandering into the great philosophers' ideas will make me want to stay flexible in terms of what is "real" or not. Also, today's superstition is tomorrow's science. Back in the old days, people avoided sick folks lest the sickness- demons jump from the afflicted into/onto the healthy... today we know about germs!! How can we possibly imagine that we understand the Universe well enough to know what we know or don't know, if you know what I mean.

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed it!

Re: The Paranormal

I have had 3 run-ins with ghosts.
First was our family cat when I was still in grammar school. The cat accidently hung himself. Afterwards both my sister and I saw, felt him in the house.

second was when I was in college and living with my father. His housing track was built over an old school yard. There was a "spirit" of a little boy and I got a very bad feeling from this one.

The last one was in the house I am still living in. This one went from making bad smells (I mean that quit literally) to turning on lights at 3:00 am.

I agree, there's a lot we don't know and understand. However, I do believe that there is something beyond death. At times when a dog passed away I'll hear a tingling sound and smell a very sweet aroma. Perhaps their spirit.
