Ghosts & Spirits

    I'm very curious about other opinions on ghosts/spirits interacting in our world.

    Do you believe in ghosts?
    Have you ever had an experience with a ghost?
    Should we be scared or happy there is an afterlife (if believed to be true).

    Also do you think there's such thing as "good" or "bad" or do we just end up in the same place?

      No one has ever managed to capture either a ghostly image or a ghost; with that massive failure there is no reason to believe in dead folks floating around us.

      I have not.

      Depends on what you think will happen.  Some say that billions upon billions of people will burn for eternity, others say everyone that lives will be reincarnated again.  Whether you should be scared or happy depends on what you have decided to believe will happen.

      There is most definitely good and bad in life, and yes we all end up in the same place - eventually as molecules of various chemicals scattered around the earth.  It may take millions of years, but plate tectonics will eventually get us all.

      Watch the TV show Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. They have some of the best evidence that these entites do exsit. While I personaly do not believe they are dead people, I do believe they are real. In my opinion, these spirits are demons, masquerading as dead people. They are almost never good spirits and are typically surrounded in tragedy. I find it a fascinating area of interest. On the Ghost Adventures show, they have conversations with these spirits. If you have Netflix or Comcast, you can watch old episodes.

        Suggest that, as you watch those shows, you pay particular attention to where the camera man, audio man, lighting man and other support personnel are.  Think about what they are doing, and what the affect of those people would be on a ghost or on the scene being portrayed if they were shown.

        You will very quickly disabuse yourself of the notion that the fictional show is in fact, reality.  Watching and paying attention to the lighting necessary to take a video is informative all by itself.  When the ghost hunter goes into the attic and shines their flashlight around while their face is plainly visible in the camera makes you think just a bit.  How much light is there, after all?  And where is that light coming from?

        Are we really supposed to believe that one TV show and only one TV show has actually recorded and had conversations with spirits?

      Yes, I believe in ghosts for sure and am hooked on Long Island Medium, Celebrity Ghost Stories and the like because it offers inspiration and proof to me that yes, there is life beyond death.  I do believe there is good and bad and therefore, I think it depends on the ghosts you encounter, just as it depends on the people here on earth that you encounter, whether you need to be afraid of them or not.  Spirits of our loved ones are around us, I feel, yes.  Whether these are ghosts or not, I am not sure.  I feel there may be some earthbound spirits which I would suppose would be more of a ghost situation.  I have had experiences where I feel my loved ones were communicating with me from the good place they are.  It was not scary.. just very surprising and exhilarating!  I loved it!

        Long Island Medium is great.. She lives practically 5 minutes from her and she's so down to earth. If you see her and ask for a reading she will do it. I always like to refer to readers like her to show that there is an after life.

    What the do is distort random sounds until the natural pattern-finding parts of the brain can believe it sounds like speech, especially if the phrase being "said" is told to you before you hear it.  It is the sound version of finding Jesus on a grilled cheese sandwich.

    Once, I was laying on the couch and Ifelt a kiss on my forehead. I knew it was my aunt, who had passed away several years previously. It seemed odd, since we weren't really close and my mother had died just the year before. Of course, a skeptic will say I simply imagined it. That may be true, but knowing someone I hadn't really thought of in years was close by and feeling their kiss makes me feel it was real. We are a stand offish lot and I don't think the woman ever kissed me in real life. I would have backed off if I had thought it was coming.

    Anyway. I don't really believe we live on, as separate entities, after death; yet when I think of that moment I know if we do it's not going to be something to be frightened of.

    I believe that as there are good people,bad people, who is to say there areĀ“nt good and bad ghosts, we will never know unless we are dead..

    There is enough proof out there of an after life, I guess that we probably, deep down inside are all hoping for one, the idea of just blackness after passing on is just too frightning for the human mind.

    Creepy subject by the way....
