Well, I'll tell ya.
We have a friend in her 50's who travels to Gettysburg several times a year to visit her ghost friends and she goes on the battle field to see the soldiers still left there who are still fighting the Civil War. Her husband smelled tobacco as they were driving down the highway a few weeks back. Immediately, his wife turns to the backseat and starts up a conversation with one of those soldiers killed in that same Civil War, and that's a highway here in Canada.
Their house has a ghost in it - she goes to cemeteries and gets into conversations with whoever is there --- and I'm not talking about the living. So much more about this woman friend, but ---some other time.
We had a woman here yesterday who is a medium (like Allison Dubois in the States). The stories are great to hear even though when she looks at me, she sees a boy --- and I'm 63. Guess I'll be livin' for quite a bit longer. She going to tell me something in 7 Days -- can't wait! ---- BOO!
I told her about the Ouija board I had years ago and the events I experienced after using it. I mentioned that I had one in the basement.
Well --- that was a mistake.
Now I have to meet with her at a place near a swamp that she says has two not so nice entities that exist there.
Apparently the Ouija board has to be disposed of in this swamp and then be able to rot in the open.
I hope she doesn't want to go at midnight! That would be a deal breaker.
I went to a seance one night in Merrickville, Ontario and both psychics there wondered why I was there. They saw sparks shooting from my head as I entered, and No -- I wasn't on Crack. The medium here yesterday called it an aura. Whatever it was, the night was Halloween and yes, with a thunderstorm. Awesome time.
So the answer to your question is, yes. I do believe in the supernatural and the afterlife and have written a story on it as one of my hubs, but dammit --- I would like to see and talk to just one friendly one before I myself become one of these spirits.
