Hi, Cathy. It was the complete opposite for me growing up. I'm half mexican, and within that part of my family spirtis/ghosts and related experiences were accepted, at least within my family. Experiences were talked along with stories of urban legend with which we grew up, so there was a spooky atmosphere within my childhood. I did break away from that later after becoming an atheist, but those first two apparitions back in the mid 90s pulled me right back into the realm of spirit belief. In your case you broke away from an atmosphere of disbelief or denial, whereas I broke away from belief, only to be brought back in by experiences that were not sought out or even considered, but happened when my attention was totally on something else.
To me, it's complicated as to how all of this takes place.

I wish it was accepted when I grew up. I tried to talk to my dad once about it when I was younger and I had seen a few things and he told me I was nuts and needed to stop. I did find out though that on my biological side (I was adopted at 2 yrs old) are native American and I come from a long line of shaman and tribal elders. not sure if in some way it was passed down thru blood and this is why I see so much. but I have reconnected with an aunt that has been telling me she too as well as a lot of my biological relatives "see" and feel spirits. So the question is do you or anyone else feel that Gifts of seeing the spirits can be passed down ? even though you don't grow up around that part of your family...

I think it is possible to pass those gifts along just like anything else in a blood line. I believe it's a mix of things that allow different people to have those gifts, and heredity would be one of those, if that is indeed possible. My Catholic mother has had a number of either psychic or paranormal experiences, but it doesn't seem any of that was passed on to me. Many of the experiences she has related to me where of a deeper, spiritual , non-religious nature. I have had my experiences, but all were in the moment happenings, nothing mental or spiritual (apparitions, chair shaking, etc.). Now my father was supposedly old-school Southern Baptist, so he probably would have reacted much like your father, Cathy. He exited my life when I was seven (abandoned the family), so his blief system wasn't a factor in my childhood.
