    I don't believe in the supernatural, as I have never experienced it; however, I know those who say they have experienced it and are strong believers.

    My take on this? The human mind always seeks to find logic in that which it can't explain. Some people turn to science to explain things away while others allow them to be mysteries and believe them to be paranormal events.

    A lot of it is belief. If you believe in the paranormal, than at some time in your life you will experience it. Whereas, if you believe strongly in science (or logic) then you will never experience such an event, as your mind will always seek some logical explanation for what just occurred ... even if there isn't one.

    My take? I'm a man of science, so I haven't experienced the spirit world, but I'm not about to discount those who say they have, as it's also possible they are somehow more 'tuned in' to something that I'm not.

    Spirit is a force of agreement. When applied to a group of people, we can say the fans of a team have a "team spirit". We can also label any cruel person as "Mean spirited".

    What binds a school of fish together? All the fish in the school act and react to conditions in the same way, because they all share a similarity of ability, experience, and perspective. Their actions are IN AGREEMENT. The same can be said of a flock of birds.

    So taking this same concept of agreement, the reason some entities are "seen" or experienced by one person and not another, suggests there is an agreement which exists between the "Seer" and the "Seen", which does not exist between the "non-Seer" and the "unSeen".

    This is a building block of Faith ...if you believe in a higher power, you maintain an agreement with that power.  Subsequently, disagreement separates you from it.

    The world of spirit is more than what might be considered "a spirit" that shows up when we least expect it. But, there are individuals who can see, hear and know it or them. As entities sometimes separated from the whole spirit body that is God - they can and do exist.

    Basically, when you want to see them-you will. But, it will not happen over night or with just a quick whim or curiosity. You have to work for it unless you were raised with an open mind, heart and intuition. Some of us have been that fortunate. Those who have a calling to study, work with or explain the spirit world will certainly have the greatest possibility of seeing spirit.

    Your channels can open to see signs of spirit, hear words of spirit or know through other methods the energy of spirits. Have you ever been with a human who is passing to the other side? It is almost impossible not to see their spirit. Believe me.

    Basically, begin to think of spirit as a natural energy and you will begin to see it everywhere.

    Every person in this world is different and our minds develop differently. We all have our favorite colors and are more interested in reading or watching television while others would rather draw and create works of art from copper pipes and wires.  in this same design, some people's minds develop into believing in the spirit world while others are not. We all have our own ways of thinking and trying to make sense of the world.

    For me, my take on the spirit world is wholehearted belief and investigating everything that stems from the paranormal. But at the same time - and I DO NOT say this to chide anyone else for their beliefs or religions - I'm not sure of what I believe in way of religion. I don’t believe that there is a God or Satan. However, oddly enough, I do believe that perhaps there is, at least, a Heaven. I believe that when a person dies, one of two things happens:

    1. They are at peace and fully understand what has happened to them and are ready to leave this world. They go to Heaven.

    2. They are fearful of death and do not understand it. They become confused and they know that they are not ready to leave – perhaps because they have “unfinished business” or because they want to make something right. Perhaps they are too filled with anger and hatred and a desire to inflict pain so they remain here in the form of an angry intelligent haunting or a poltergeist. Others, such as perhaps children, are simply afraid and confused and they stay behind, clinging to something familiar.

    Maybe others see things differently but this is my take on the spirit world - it's how I make sense of the world around me.
