Things have happened that can be "ghostly" but my mind always says there is an explanation. I REALLY want to believe otherwise. To touch on...Last year on 10/27 we were bracing for impact with Super Storm Sandy coming up the coast. My husband and I had hired 2 workers to help with the house. It was a Saturday. I was watching Sandy's progress on my BigScreen tv. In the reflection of the tv I see my husband walk across the kitchen to the bathroom. I called out that Sandy was going to hit us sometime Monday, 29th. He did not answer. He wasn't even in the house. He was up on the street w/the 2 workers. I didn't see a face I just assumed it was him, because who else could it be. I was rattled. This Thursday night I was in the exact same spot on the couch and the overhead light came on. I jumped and turned it off. The switch was in the on position. Things like that have been happening over the last year. One more tidbit...My father was a Physisict, a man of science and an Atheisit. I received a call at work from him (20 years ago) and he was out of his mind. I was so scared a Deputy drove me home. My father told me he had encountered some kind of ghost in the garden and he wanted me to record everything he said so he would have a record of what happened. My father proceed to tell me about what the ghost had said. It took about 20 minutes to record. I can't remember one word my father said and pretty much forgot about it ( I was a teenager). But I do remember I have never seen my father rattled like that ever. He crossed over in 2000 so I can't ask. The fact that someone like my father said he had seen someone is very powerful proof for me. I don't know what happened to the tape. Any insights...? Sorry to ramble. Happy Halloween, Natasha

FYI when I saw the man I thought my husband we were less than 48 hours from the full Moon, this Thursday when the lights came on we were less that 24 hours to the full Moon. If this makes any difference at all...but it just dawned on me that not only same spot but around Halloween. Now I know another connection was the Full Moon. All New Yorkers knew there was a Full Moon on Monday because Sandy was coming and the Full Moon made the tides high and really added impact.

ng13, I'm an atheist and a believer. Nothing will make one believe more than chasing an entity that disappears before you (my experience at my former workplace). There are many different experiences that can lead a person to believe, though some can have holes shot in them due to the complexities of the experience (voices, noises, vibrations, etc.), but a face-to-face with an entity kind of underscores the fact that they exist in some realm, level, plain, or however they do exist. One does not have to be confused by the experience or accept all theories as to why the experience happened. Research similar happenings, examine theories that make sense to you and file away or discard those that do not. The three entities that I saw at different times were all in different settings and clarity of image. Whereas before I believed dead was dead, now the whole thing just fascinates me knowing that they are there in some whole other world of existence. I'm still an atheist and a skeptic, but I know they exis. For me, an experience just has to be taken beyond reasonable explanation before I say "Yep, that was.....".

There is no longer room in my world for doubt and skepticism....i have had some awesome and life changing experiences...so many that I've lost count....and then there are folks like my son in law who have never had one incident and will more than likely never believe....i wish he'd have just one so i could say "told ya"

I'm skeptical of peronal experiences, not the existence.

There's nothing like a personal experience to change one's mind, but the skepticism is understandable; it's either faith or experience.

I guess it's easier to believe someone is "Nuts" than it is to swallow ones ego and realize that just maybe you might be wrong.I'm not skeptical of experiences since I have had my own.....but i do believe we are in a bit of a ghost hysteria phase in this country....it's socially acceptable now in most circles...and in fact popular.I'd say at least 70% is bogus or misdiagnosed ...for lack of a better word.Suddenly everyone is either a medium or an investigator......and yet who are we to say otherwise. I believe everyone has the potential to be sensitive to the spirit world....but it does take an open mind....and there are some folks who are troubled and dramatic for whatever reason...I try very very hard to keep an open mind about other folks and there beliefs and practices. I remind myself that if Jesus himself walked the earth now....he would probably be treated very poorly indeed..he would'nt dress in the big labels or drive the hottest new car...he'd probably be a total outcast......when i think this...my own judgemental attitude adjusts naturally and I am able to step back and allow each person their voice.If a person seems to really want the experience they may read a lot into it...on the other hand if a person seems to really want the experience...well ...be careful what you wish for because an entity  can pick up on that pretty fast. its 6 of one and half a dozen of the other and by golly if It's Jesus I don't want to miss him.
