Some are afraid of ghosts, but others believe ghosts are the spirits of persons who died. What are your personal experiences?

Hi. chocolatechilli. Yes, I have seen and felt a ghost of someone that I know. Especially, in a dream. I can feel my cousin's presence when I am at home. I will feel a cold breeze or I can feel him watching me. It is very eerie and scary. I have had many encounters and I have been afraid of all of them too.

I can't say that it would be the ghosts of anyone I know, but I tend to attract entities of all kinds. When I was pregnant with my daughter, a group of friends and I were sitting together kind of in a circle in my living room. No windows or doors were opened, and there was no way for a force of air to really circulate. As one of the guys leaned across towards me, a strong gust of VERY cold air blasted between the four of us... to the point that we all jumped back. In this apartment, I have heard children screaming on several occasions, almost always around 1am. At the time, only 2 of the give apartments in this building were occupied. The apartments are all side by side, not in an upstairs/downstairs type of arrangement. Then recently, I saw a shadowy figure of an arm pass around the corner to my laundry room as my daughter was getting ready for school. I caught it out of the corner of my eye and thought she had come downstairs with me and began talking. A few minutes later, I realized that she had actually been upstairs the entire time.

I do think that I have. There have been moments, when things happens and I just couldn't explain it logically. I couldn't see what could have caused it. I don't know if I would say for sure that I have see a ghost. It has happened that I know I felt something, but there was not a logical or physical reason for it.

I know what you mean. You do not necessarily see anything, but there is a presence of some sort.

I have no experience in that. But I am a person who believes that our deceased loved ones' spirits are around us and I don't think I'd be scared much if I met one. There were times when I was younger I even envied psychics who were able to connect with spirits because I really needed to meed several people I'd lost at least one more time.

There are so many stories about people whose lives were saved by miraculous means - I'm absolutely convinced we ARE being watched over, whether we are aware of it or not.

No, I have never experienced that. Not sure that if I want to to be honest with you, providing that its possible. The fact of the matter is that it could be true, it could be not, but it is extremely interesting to say the very least. Ghosts have always been a topic of great intrigue to me for a number of reasons. Not sure how much I believe it it, but like I said, it is very interesting. Still it is not really something that I am prepared to completely believe in. I am sure some people might have had experiences, some might have thought that they have. Still I can't say that I have seen or experienced a ghost first hand. Then again, with all of the weirdness in this world, one can't really argue that this is not possible.
