No, yes, yes... and No

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

I believe in spirits. I think if given the chance, I would be able to talk to them because I'm very much in tune with the spirit world. I can stand a foot away from someone and feel the heat of their aura! I am intuitive. I can sometimes predict the future. For instance, I knew I would reply to this question. What more proof do you need?

Spirits are all around us... We're simply not in tune with their energy level - and they have better things to do than follow us around, don'tcha think?

A neighbor of mine has dropped by several times in the last couple of weeks. If he says anything I don't hear it....just seems to like being around somebody who knows he's there and accepts him.

I believe he's waiting for his wife, who is in declining health. He a good old guy, and it would be just like him to do that....and just like him to drop in on me, as he has this morning -- Hi, Bob! Good to, uh, not see you....

like Kaoru.... I think I'm just going to play it safe and let you folks enjoy this topic without my input.  I will, however, spare you the "lmao."

sigh.

One of the many drawbacks of the party life, is that while using mind-altering substances your mind is um, altered.

I've seen some stuff.

But alas, I guess I'll never know, huh?

I'm pretty sure I AM one.

I couldn't help myself.

Seriously, I am very 'spirited', and hear and say and do things that come to me 'out of the blue' that I'm not truly responsible for (LOL).
My muse, for instance, gifts me little treasures once in a while, and I'm not sure why she/he is so kind.

Does that answer the basic Q's?

Once, I saw a man silhouetted in the doorway of a many roomed cellar. I saw no detail because he was back-lit. I didn't expect anyone else to be there, so I waved t him in greeting and he waved back. Shortly, I discovered no one else WAS there.

Another time, I was preparing food for a wedding reception in the kitchen of an old mansion that was being rented for the event. Over my shoulder I caught sight of a slender young woman wearing a long gown (not an unusual thing to see when you're expecting wedding guests)As I turned to address her, she just sort became insubstantial and faded away. (I mentioned her to the person that over-saw the mansion and was told the there was indeed a spirit that resided there)

Later, Louise and I shared a house with someone that we couldn't see, but could hear quite well. You could follow the footfalls of that spirit down the hall, hear it enter the room you were in....right up to where you were sitting! ("It" (as I never got a feeling for gender), would constantly untie my shoes while I was wearing them)

Well, those are my "ghost stories" and I'm stickin' to 'em.

Okay, okay..

When I was about 4 or 5, I lived with my grandmother. Her house had a really long hallway full of pictures, and at the end was her bedroom and the bathroom.

To the left of the bathroom was a mirror that covered the remainder of wall between the bathroom and her bedroom..

Once, I was watching tele in her room and it must've been about 10pm.. I saw MYSELF come out of the mirror and walk down the hall..

Unfortunately, I've never forgotten this.. I never will.. It was wearing a long t-shirt, the kind I'd sleep in, and I didn't get up to see if it was still there after it'd walked by the doorway.. I was petrified..

A long time after that, when I was 15, I'd seen myself again.. I never really understood why these ghostly images always looked exactly like me..

the cynic in me says it's simply a physical manifestation or mental projection of subconscious thoughts brought forth by stress or substances..
the frosted side..er..spiritual side says they are what they are, spirits who haven't seen fit to depart yet..although who would want to stick around i dunno..unless it's haunting the showers of an all girl catholic high school...mmmmmm school..um..yeah

We bought an old  2 story house that was built in 1920. I kept seeing a little girl and boy. They would just be rounding the corner of the upstair landing. I'd jump up and run up stairs to see who it was. They would always be gone by the time I'd get upstairs. Finally I quit trying to catch them and would just see them running up the stairs. One night my husband & I were watching TV and I saw them going upstairs, I looked over at my husband and he said, did you see that. We finally learned that each other had been seeing them but neither wanted to tell the other one. Didn't want others to think we were crazy.  He never saw them again but I did. Years later after our kids moved on we sold the house, our middle son wanted to know what was going to happen to the ghosts that lived there. We had never mentioned ghost to our kids. He said he use to always see them in the house, but never outside.
