What are the most common indicators of ghostly activity?Things that would lend one to the belief,that something is going on.

We have had occurences that we know were caused by deceased relatives.We knew exactly what they were when they occured.But what about things we might not recognize?

I'm new here.Hello to everyone.

Aloha and welcome to the Village!

As to your question, if anything happens which you can't explain, you may want to look to paranormal causes. A classic example of this is when furniture (or whatever) moves on its own.

Some people can "sense" something there. It takes a great bit of experience to tell false positives (eg. your own emotions) from the real deal.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

hello and welcome to GV. I think its kind of hard to pinpoint just one thing. But here are some things to look for. When the temp gets colder in a room for no reason. Lights flickering, the shower going from hot to cold to hot to cold (i've had that happen to me a few times) and when you feel the presence of somebody standing by you but theres nobody there.

hope that helps you out. :weeee:

Hello, yankee mark! The things described above are some signs. Another item is missing articles that you know were in a certain spot, but have disappeared without a trace, then turn up somewhere totally out of place. Or you look all over and go back to where you know you left it and it's suddenly returned. Theses seem to be shiny things like keys, jewelry, etc...

Other signs may include footsteps when nobody is around, the sounds of doors opening and closing when the door isn't moving, and smells of things that are not present (dead relative's perfume, or flowers in the dead of winter, etc...).

Curious to hear about your experiences, and look forward to you posts.

Thanks to all for the welcome.

The most obvious that has happened to my wife and I,occured in late 2001.My father-in-law had just passed away.A terrific father-in-law,and a devoted father to his children and a good husband to his wife.

It had not been long since his passing.My wife and I were leaving the house,and it was getting dark.My wife wanted to leave a light on in the living room,but I said no as we'd be back before dark or something to that effect.So,she walked out ahead of me and we left the house dark.

When we arrived home,it was dark outside.As we pulled into the driveway,I immediately felt something.It was shock,because someone had turned on a lamp in the living room after we had left.We both just sat in the car afraid and in disbelief.Clearly,Sharyn's dad had heard her say that when she was a little girl,her dad would always leave a light on if it were to be dark when they got home.He made it clear that he would prefer that I leave a light on,especially if that's what she wanted.So,I told him that I would always do that.And we do.

Then,not long after that,we had just gone to bed one night.I was almost asleep,not quite,but almost.Sharyn was already sleeping.I was sleeping on my left side facing my wife.All of a sudden,I heard someone say,Thank you Mark.It was clearly my father-in-law's voice.He said it into my right ear.I looked all over,as if I thought I'd actually see someone.It was clearly his voice.

Both of these incidents made us feel good.My wife loved her father dearly,and I could not have asked for a better father-in-law.We hope that he still comes around.

i often hear my name called also. i think that mine is my son who has crossed over. i have other children here at home and off and on i'm saying to them, " who's calling me"? and they say "it's not us mom". so i really believe it's my son who took his life at the age of 20. i think he wants me to know he's around.

maybe it's someone close to you that has crossed over and they just want you to know their around. just think about it, is there someone that was close to you that has recently pasted away? or it could even be someone that wasn't really close to you that passed that just finds it easy to get through to you and is.

Hi Yankee Mark,
Welcome to Ghostvillage and thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I would definately say that these are ghostly occurences. Your father-in-law may be staying for a little while to make sure everything is in order and that all is okay. Or he may choose to reside in the house on a more long term basis. It's hard to say for sure. I'm glad you are able to find comfort in this and I hope all is well with you and I wish you all the best. :D

I often times hear my name as well...and it doesn't really matter where I am at...I can be at home and hear my name or be sitting at work and hear my name called just like someone was standing right beside me....I have yet to figure this out as to why, but, I just sort of roll with it.

i think everyone has heard someone repeat their name.i had a dream about my dad.he passed away 2 yrs ago in dec.i had a dream i talked to him on the phone.it was his voice and he told me i needed to talk to my mom.which i thought was odd.so the next day i called my mom.told her about the dream.that night i had a dream about my dad and he was smiling.he didnt say anything just smiling.i think hes trying to talk to me since he knew i was always interested in the paranormal stuff.plus, out of my dads 6 kids...i was the only one really close to him.

to bad i cant have dreams about him every night.
when sliding down the bannister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way...an irish blessing.......may those that love us, love us, as for those that dont love us, may God turn their hearts.and if God cant turn their hearts, may God turn their ankles, so we will know them by their limp.
