Hi! I read one of Jeff's books and recently found my way here. I'm just getting back into this subject after a decade and a half as a skeptic (more about that below) and am doing a lot of reading to catch up with current NDE studies and with new books by mediums.

Considering that I've actually had a couple of experiences with ghosts, it's kind of odd that I lost my belief in the supernatural for so long, but that's what happened. It probably had to do with the fact that my husband and friends are non-believers. I just kind of stopped looking at all the personal evidence I'd accumulated over the years, somehow.

Then someone I cared deeply about died last fall and I realized how depressed I was getting over the death. I remembered my former life-long strong belief that I'd someday see again all the people I'd lost to death and how comforting it was. And I also made a cross-country trip back to the area where I grew up (western PA) in August and saw the old logging road where I saw my first ghost, too. That made me realize how illogical it was to be so strongly influenced by the skepticism of the people around me, when I had what amounts to personal proof that, at least in some cases, death isn't the end.

The thing is, the experiences I've had were of the sort of ghost that seems more like a "recording" on a particular place than like the survival of a personality. Not exactly what I'm looking for. I also used to be very psychic (precognition and clairvoyance), but have lost those abilities. So, as well as reading up on the paranormal, I'm also meditating and hoping to reawaken my abilities and possibly to also communicate with the dead.

I'm really happy to have found this forum and will write more about my own experiences as I find the time. (I posted in the "Royal Ghost" thread last week)
