I had an interest from the time that I was a small child. I had an imaginary playmate that was VERY real, I've seen a lot of things but I've never felt like I did not understand them...although I've been scared a few times - I understood.
I've read books but I don't really learn anything new? It isn't that I know it all - it is nothing like that...I just don't really feel 'in the dark' at all either.

I have always been scared of the dark and I still sleep with a night-light
I have never had any definite experiences that I would call paranormal but in many ways I have been surrounded by it my whole life.

Wow, I have never thought of this one before.. when did it all start? I think it has alot to do with the fact that I have grown up with stories of the supernatural and speaking with the spirits, of dreams and their meanings and family spirit guides so it was never a question of disbelieving it was more of a searching for others who shared the belief in a world that demands scientific and rational proof of existence.
I have always loved a good horror film, book, ghost story, exorcisms, angels and demons and the rest.. its just so fascinating to me which is why GV is such a great place to be.
I sometimes wonder though about others who say they dont believe.. is it because they are closed to the signs or do some people just not sense the 'others' so to speak? strange how that is..
Not Strange at all erato it has to do with Logic , some people never take truth on assumption , including sensing things or feeling or anything other than cold hard factual proof.

The other reasons should go under 'personal experience', but briefly, when I was 9 years old I lived in a house in Sydney which I believe may have been haunted. I HATED it! I've never known fear like that before or since.

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

I've always included my own personal childhood experience in this, but I wanted to include something that honestly opened the door for checking out the Internet and doing searches on ghost hunting and investigations.
Someone I worked with had friends that owned a small cottage upnorth in WI. They would hear odd sounds, sounds of people walking around, things moved... basically you normal set of ghostly deeds.
The people that owned the cottage decided to try an experiment. they took a flat, smooth board and placed babhy powder on it. They then asked the ghost to leave signs in it that the ghost was there. They left it out over night and the next morning they found what looked like finger marks tracked through the baby powder. They could not however reproduce the odd looking marks with their own fingers, they looked very different.
The person I worked for had the photos of these marks and showed them to me, after some small talk about things that went bump in the night. That's when the Internet scrounging began and set my interest in full motion.
