I don't believe in ghosts, but I believe there's something going on.
Not agreeing with mainstream religions, I don't have an answer for what happens after death. I do know that the physical matter of our bodies sticks around for a bit and then decomposes. I don't know why mental energies can't do the same thing, in some sort of immeasurable way.
So if there's a particularly tragic end or a particularly strong bond, that mental energy may be bound to a person or a place. I don't know that it can move physical objects, but maybe it can. We may assign more to the idea of a ghost because of what we've already experienced secondhand in that regard.
I think it might also affect inspiration. I don't really have any idea if it's possible or not, but those mental energies could enter your head and make you suddenly aware of something you never had thought of before. No, it's never happened to me, but it makes a tiny bit of sense. Actually, maybe it has happened to me. I would never know.
My dog died two weeks ago. She was always terrified of thunder and fireworks. She'd hide in the bathtub or down the stairs and was generally so afraid of everything that she'd never leave your side. The storms this week have been incredible. I thought for sure I'd wake up to some drool in the tub or hear the basement stairs creaking as she seeked solace, but neither came to pass. The way she was always underfoot (difficult for a mastiff) made me think her energies would stick very close.
So really, who knows. I want to believe, but I don't know if I can.

This brings me to the above quote. Our bed was near the door looking out in the rest of the place and I slept on the side facing it. Well one night I woke up for some reason feeling that creeped out feeling again but this time I was in the some state as said above. I couldn't move nor could I talk at all and believe me I tried especially when I seen a man who looked like he was out of the 1880's walk from the bathroom which was beside our room into the living room. I really thought at first someone was in the apartment trying to rob us. I kept trying to move or say something but I just couldn't. Then I seen him turn and look at me and then put his finger to his lips as if to tell me to be quite then he just disappeared thru the door into the outside hallway. I finally could move and I got up and checked everything but couldn't find anything wrong so I went back to sleep. I chalked it up to a really vivid bad dream. I guess I was sleeping pretty hard cause the wife woke me up later asking if I knew of the upstairs being rented cause someone was stomping around up there. I told her no but I'd call and ask the next day or go talk to them about it. The place was still empty I found out later. Now we lived there a year and this was the closest I ever came to having anything happen, and I didn't tell her of what I saw until we moved out.
My wife had a lot more happen including hearing a little girl crying in our closet. Which was strange as the other side of the closet was the laundry room and she went to check to see if anyone was there but it was empty. When she came back from checking she still heard the little girl crying away like she was in the room. She even went so far as to ask her why she was crying and the little girl said she missed her mommy. Well after that she called me and I came home for lunch. She said as soon as I opened the door to the apartment it just stopped. I asked if she was sure and I got the look and was told yes because she was talking to her. This all happened in the middle of the night, the next day she went to the other apartments to check and see if any of them had a little girl living there but all the other residents were single with no kids. So after this she went to the local town hall and started checking into the building, turns out it used to be a hotel/brothel in the 1880's with a sorted past. Even with all the strange things going on we stayed until I got base housing a year later. I still don't know if I dreamed what I saw or if it was real but I believe my wife as she doesn't scare easy and when she called me she was really upset thinking there was a lost little girl somewhere.
Most of these can be explained by an old building settling, pipes, wiring can cause feelings of paranoia, vivd dreams but I really can't explain the girl crying or talking back to my wife.

I've had 3 experience. One is way too personal and I don't like to discuss it.
Visited a school that was reportedly haunted by the spirit of a little boy who was hit by a car and taken to the nurse's office where he died. Story was you could ask him yes/no questions and he would respond by knocking on the wall. We started asking things and we were getting responses. We asked a couple questions in qucki succession, the last one being "Do you want us to leave?" and there was a knock. Not sure which question that was an answer to, we asked for two knocks if it wanted us to leave and immediately there was a soft knock followed by a loud bang. Of course we left right away. There was a window next to the door and I could look inside the room and see the part of the wall the knocks were coming from and there was definitely nothing there.
And lastly, visitng a friend's house. While in a bathroom looking in a mirror, I distinctly heard a woman's voice come from behind me in the shower saying "Hello".
So yeah, I believe

Yes I had an experience myself once it would take a long time to explain.

Man, I have had many dreams like this. They didn't start until I lived with a buddy of mine in a little 2 bedroom house. In this dream like state I can look around but I can't move or talk. I ALWAYS see a dark figure standing in the room. This happened to me about 3 times when I lived with him and it didn't happen again until years later. The first time it happened again would have been about 2 1/2 years ago. When my youngest daughter was just a little baby. She would sleep with my wife and I in bed. My wife would hold her in her arm at her side. One night I awoke and an older woman was standing over my wife holding my daughter. Damn, my eyes are tearing up right now talking about this. Anyway, the woman had a long white see-through kind of night gown on and she had long straight brown hair. I didn't try to move or anything. It took me awhile to tell my wife...like a year or so, because I knew she would completely flip. She's like that. But when I did tell her and described the woman, she said her deceased grandmother looked just like that. I had never met her grandmother or had seen any pictures of her. We had never even talked about her before.

Man, I would never like to know if someone died in my house 0_o
at the moment I'm living in an old building with 12 other people, which used to be a disabled care-center. It's a building with about 20 rooms with individual bathrooms, one big kitchen which some of us use, and a few bigger rooms such as a meeting room for family, offices, a bar etc. When I had just moved in I sometimes had the feeling I was being watched when I went out of my room into the main-hall at night. One of my 'house-mates' also had the same feeling, and even had the feeling it was a man. she moved out a couple weeks back, and I never talked to her about it, but I didn't have the feeling for some time now. apart from that a lot of weird things have happened over there. One of the other people living there has had a 'visitor' in his room. He told me he saw one of his lights flash, and a shadow shoot through the room at the same time. when he asked if someone was there he didn't get any response sadly. Another thing is all the strange noises we hear. mostly it's noises of stuff falling down or being dragged from one side of the room to another. my next-door neighbour would often ask me what the h*** I was doing at night, because she heard a lot of noises coming from my room. the same thing happens to me a lot of times, coming from the room beneath mine, but that room isn't occupied, nor are the rooms next to that one on both sides. the last thing I remember is hearing the tiles on my balcony make sounds at night. they normally make sounds when you walk on them, as they are grinding against each other.at first this somewhat freaked me out, but I got over it. And as of late I don't really hear anything anymore..
apart from that I've had something happen when I was a child of about 8 years old. I was away with my parents to some friends of theirs for a couple of days. one night I had just been tucked in to bed, and I saw someone walking down the hall, it was clearly a person, totally dressed in grey. but the strange thing about it were the eyes, which were lit up. I tried a 'hello' but there was no response, nor did I see the figure walk down the stairs which was right in my line of sight. I ask my parents the next morning and they didn't remember anyone getting up to the first floor that night until everybody getting to bed themselves.
I've also heared stories about relatives who had their own encounters. one of them was a story my grandmother once told;
she woke up one night, and felt a terrible cold on one side of her, when she turned around to see what it could be, she saw her own father (which obviously wasn't alive anymore) standing right there in a white robe. she freaked, took cover under the blankets and woke up the next morning, never seeing him again. about two months later, my grandfather passed away.. we believe the appearance of her father was some kind of warning of that same thing.
Another story I heard was from my nephew, who also woke up one night to find our grandfather standing next to him. he started talking to him, and wasn't affraid at all, I don't know what they talked about though.
I'm a true believer in the super natural, and after the story my grandmother told I was affraid of ghosts for a long time. A couple of years back I grew an interest in the supernatural and have been researching it ever since. I've heard a lot of stories from people I've met (even from people with no interest in the supernatural at all) and it's been really interesting.
last thing I'd like to say is, I really love reading all the stories everybody has about the whole subject. And these stories are, in my opinion, much more likely to be true as this isn't a board where people come to discuss that kind of thing. those boards have a lot more believers than non-believers so there isn't anyone to cut them off when things really get 'out there'.
keep sending in your stories!
