We all have heard of ghosts. We've all seen movies, tv shows and we've all read books about ghosts. But do you actually believe in them?

Hi, welcome to mylot. Yes I believe in ghost or spirits. I have seen them myself and heard. I have also seen things move that could not possibly move as they did by themselves. Here are some examples of what I have experienced. I have seen a woman standing in my closet when I was younger (broad daylight). My closet door even though it had a latch, would open 3or 4 times a week at night. My sister and I would wake up and it would be opened...we blamed each other for years. Even after I stopped thinking it was her, she still blamed me. My camera was sitting on a basket of laundry next to me at about waist high as I was sitting at the desk on the computer. I had just bought it that morning. I looked out the door of the deck as I was sitting there. I thought about taking pictures again as I have some spirit animals that showed up on some pics with my old camera. Just then something hits me in the shoulder.... my camera somehow launched up at my shoulder all on it's own and fell onto the floor...it was still in the box as I hadn't opened it yet....now I can see it falling down by itself maybe but not jumping up a foot and a half and hitting me...lol There is a shadow man in my bird room near the bathroom door. It started moving down the room for a month or so last year.... I would be on the computer in the middle of the night...as I am now... and all of a sudden my sleeping Macaw would startle, fluff her feathers and say "Hiiii" and I would see the shadow man move back to the corner and fade...so I know she sees things too.. She is a very smart bird and is very emotional, and expressive...for a bird. Well I've had her since she was 7mos old and she is 14 years now..so we know each other well. I keep trying to get some kind of evidence of all the things that go on in this house. It's my moms house that I grew up in. Now I am back at 49 to help out after my mom helped me out when I was ill. I got a digital recorder to try and record the voices and sounds...it was gone and not found yet after 4 years. It's the second one to disappear before I got to even try it. So now I am going to try and get something with computer if that disappears well I'm done...lol My best friend just moved in to get on her feet after her son was killed and she relocated back from out of state. She does not believe in ghosts at all. At least twice now something has just move on the table or fallen all by itself... she just looks at me like..."what I didn't see anything" I remember just about a week ago I was eating peppermint sticks that were in a little plastic type sack. The top of the bag was twisted closed and tucked under the bag of candy that was laying on the table. All of a sudden we both caught something move in the corners of our eyes (we were watching tv) and as we looked at the table at the same time, the bag of candy was wide open and upright..like someone was taking or had taken one out....lol We just looked at each other and I said did you just take a peppermint stick, noticing it was now open and I had just closed it two minutes before. She said no, but I know you closed that because I watched you do it. I said good so why is it opened now...she said "quiet the commercial is over" and watched the tv, she still hasn't spoken a word about it....hehehe She is so funny in her "non believing" personally I think it's just denial...you can't live here for too long or visit some days without seeing something unexplainable by any other reason that "alternate energy" be it ghost, spirit, paranormal or whatever. Oh yes I believe. Blessed be, Mari

Hiya mari, My Husband is the one who sees them without wanting to and I have felt someone there a few times too. Someone told me over the phone she is a bit like that too she can see but she really does not want to see them either. She said that she saw a Nun around me who was very protective towards me. But I really have no notion to be a Nun at all so I can´t think why I would have a Nun around me. As for being a Nun they would have kicked me out ages ago as I like to talk too much lol. I felt in Barnby Moor behind me once of someone very young and it was a girl but she wished me no harm and I felt a light touch on my back. My hair stood up on end I can tell you but in seconds I was okay. I can´t explain how I knew but I knew it was someone.

I see two kinds of responses in this topic: 1) "I havent seen ghosts, so i dont believe in them" 2) I've seen/heard/felt ghost, so i believe" Am i the only one who believes in ghosts just out of feight? I have never had any experiences with ghosts or spirits, however I have a really strong feeling about them being around Back to your reply, mari61960, I am really curious, can you tell us some more details about the house you speak of. when it was biult and what do you know about its history and so on.

I believe in ghosts. I have had them in my home at various times. Even my dogs have seen the presence of the spirits. My Mom has seen them, and she also has appeared to me several times since her passing in 2000.

i do not believe in ghosts, as no one in the world who really see a ghosts, so i though that ghosts is only a imagine,when we are very worried something, especially in the darkness,the ghosts is very easy to remember.so that the ghosts is very omnipotent.so it seems like that ghosts is in the bottom of our heart.not is existance.good luck and have a nice day!

Yes, I do believe in ghosts. I believe that I might have had some experience with ghosts. I think that there are things out there that we might not be able to see or really understand.

I sure do. I have seen and heard many ghosts in my life and it's fascinating to me. Sad thing is, so many people don't believe in them because they haven't seen them. I wish I had proof :( It's been a while now, but it's really amazing and scary at the same time. It's like, you want to see them but then you want nothing to do with them. I would rather see them with someone around than on my own. I always hated when it happened when I was by myself. Definitely not fun!!

When you say SEE THEM, do you mean actually see, with your eyes, or it is more like you sense them?

Yes. There are 3 or four of them in my home but if we don't aggravate them they are fine.

I dont believe in ghosts. But many times in the darkness, while I am walking from the village to my home, I have seen some movements and I got scared. But when I reaching near to the place it will be some people walking or the movements of the leaves. Eveb if I dont believe in the existence of ghosts, I have a fear while I walking alone in the night. This may be a psycholotgical effect.

I get freaked out in the dark also. I think most people do. Being a girl, I get scared being outside after dark and I think I always will. It's just our bodies way of protecting us. I've seen ghosts as well, so now I have two things to be afraid of lol :p

I don't really believe in ghosts but I'm still afraid of them somehow does it makes sense at all?
• United States

That does make sense. That's how I feel about aliens. If I watch a movie about aliens, I get all scared and can't even get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom without my bf coming with me lol :p I guess it's just the fact that we're not SURE if they're there or not. At least I'm not alone!! lol

I believe they exist. I also believe there is nothing to be afraid of them. In fact, I was told they are more afraid of us humans. However, it seems natural for us to be afraid of unknown and they happen to belong to the unknown.

In my childhood I was always scared of ghosts. But after I had grown up I understood that there is no such things. Some aged people still believe in ghosts and they've got a lot proofs supporting their argument. I've even visited the scariest place e.g. graveyard and body cremation place. But I've never been encountered any ghost or spirit.
