    I'd be thrilled.  How many people get to really see one?  Of course I'd have to then assess all of the possibilities that it could have been something other than a ghost, but if I can come up with nothing else I'd count myself in the ranks of the lucky people who've gotten to witness a real apparition.  I think it would be fascinating.

    As far as doing anything about it, I don't think I'd call attention to it outside of my own household.  And I wouldn't try to get rid of it.  As long as it's not bothering anyone it can stay. Live and let not live.

    Make an appointment with an optician, and probably a psychologist.

    When I was a kid, the house where we grew up had a staircase. It went up half way, had a landing, turned and then went up the rest of the way. One night, I was going up the stairs and looked up to see an old woman in a long dress with her hair up in a bun standing there on the landing looking at me. I was frozen with fear, couldn't move, couldn't say anything. She turned and went up the rest of the stairs, and I wouldn't go up there, even though my room and the bathroom were on the second floor. I must have stood at the bottom of the stairs not moving, barely breathing for fifteen minutes.

    I never saw her again and didn't say anything about it for the longest time, but was having a conversation a few years ago with Little Brother #1 and learned he had seen her too, multiple times. We have no clue who she was or why she was there, but he validated what I'd seen and vice versa.

    So, to answer your question, I stood there like an idiot without being able to move or speak, and then didn't talk about it for over twenty years. smile

    If I saw a ghost, I'd be very surprised and taken off guard. I would want to explore more about it to make sure it was real. I have however heard disembodied voices, and have felt the hair on my body stand up on end for no reason. A few things have happened to me that I can only explain as being paranormal. It's very surprising since it doesn't happen often and it's something I have no control over. It just is.

    They are not to be scared of.  it depends on what kind they are .. mostly they are just trying to get a message through or don't even know that they are gone.
    if you can see them or interact with them in anyway, you have a special gift.  try to find out who it is and why they died and when.  don't be scared.. its ok

    That depends: If I was in a dark room all by myself and saw one, I would be pretty freaked out. If I saw one in a lit room and there were at least some other people in the house, I would be more intrigued.

    If I saw a ghost I really would not worry too much.  I would just explain to them that if they plan on living with me they have to help with rent and the chores.

    Best wishes.

    Having grown up in a house that I believe to be haunted, I can say that I really wouldn't think twice about it.

    I've had so many experiences over the years, from childhood to young adulthood which cannot be explained by anything except the paranormal. My mother used to tell me that I needed to talk to them, to tell them when I was frightened. I've learned that when they are being loud or rambunctious, if they're bothering me, or giving me a little bit of a startle - I just need to be honest and tell them, "Look, You're kinda freakin' me out right now! Could you quit it?!"

    I've actually found it to be pretty successful. One night, when they were opening and shutting my bedroom door, I sat straight up in bed and squinted into the darkness and said "Look guys! PLEASE stop that, it is REALLY bugging me!" The door immediately halted, in mid swing, and shut slowly - latching. I thanked them for being so kind and went to bed.
