While I have not had an contact with ghosts in any form, there has been stories that they exist amongst us. To me, I see that as mere talk since this is all about someone being in an unclear state.
Have you had any contact with ghosts or believe that they exist?
Sure. Ghosts and haunting's are real. They come in different forms though.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
Man...I definitely would freak if there was even a resemblance of a demonic haunting in my house! I honestly think I'd freak if I experienced any of them. Any kind of paranormal activity would be enough for me to find somewhere else to live!
Well demonic haunting's are complicated. You have to find the source, and then pray that you can have the entity removed. Sometimes it's as simple as removing a cursed item from the home, or moving to a new home. Other times, it's much more difficult. Every situation is different.
I don't think that I would freak out if I saw a ghost. In my life, I have been occupied by volunteering in the army by doing various things such as organizing events for the soldiers when they complete a certain course. The families come and join in the celebrations.
Another part of my volunteering in the army is when a soldier gets killed I am there to bury the soldier and unfortunately, I have had to bury many soldiers which are very unpleasant situations.
Yes, I have seen ghosts but honestly speaking I have a beautiful saying: " Its all in the head". There is nothing to worry about. You get some friendly ghosts also
There is one story I heard of a poltergeist who tormented just one man who had allegedly divorced his wife. This entity wouldn't let him eat or drink anything. If he cooked any food, it would simply disappear the moment he served it. Don't know if the ending was happy or not though.
Demonic haunting's: The worst of all paranormal phenomena. These are incidents where a space, location or place is haunted by a demonic entity, or evil elemental spirit. Bent on causing harm to the living that reside within that area.
When our house was newly built and we just moved in, there where a lot of unexplained noises we keep on hearing. We all slept on the second and third floors and at night we would here knocking and doors opening in the ground floor. I'll go down with a weapon in my hand and everything's quiet and all doors are locked. This usually happens past midnight. Then one time I tried staying downstairs and nothing happened but when I got sleepy and closed my eyes, then I began to hear things like faint knockings and like someone's watching me, you know that creepy feeling. So what I did was open up the main door and windows, also the lights and TV and watched movies and popped some popcorn and everything was normal. Sometimes old people say, when a place is all dark and quiet spirits dwell in it. So for them to leave you have to light up the place and noisy it a bit.
You describe these ghosts as cowardly. They do things but if you light up or awake they quit. Such cowardly things are not in my line. I will cast them out in The Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
Haha, well it depends on the type of ghost because ghost that has no plan to harm you should not disturb.
I think what happened in that house may not be a ghost except if the house is located in an area that is very quite and it can also be animals or wind.
Poltergeists are normally human created. It's basically a persons psychic energy creating phenomena around them. Like the movie 'Poltergeist,' the old horror film? The evil spirits wanted CarolAnne because her psychic energy was on a scale of 1 to 10, so powerful - it would've been enough to free them from their realm. If a person doesn't learn to control these abilities, they become a beacon for negative spirits and in some cases the person can end up harming someone or opening doorways that weren't meant to be opened.
@Judas2018. I agree with you. Ghosts are made and controlled by people in their mind. It is something they should learn to control. Believing in Jesus Christ and casting th out in Jesus Christ can help. One can cover them in the blood of Jesus
@jean I wonder why the ghost will make food disappear. It cannot eat food. Why look and take what you cannot use?
The little I know about ghosts is that they'll just materialize to scare somebody but even though they might appear to be terrifying they can't do much harm to the person who sees them. Maybe they could drive this person crazy - the worst they can do I suppose. As for something that can make something happen, that's probably an intelligent entity, like a demon not a ghost.
Are you creating all these? What is the purpose of haunting? What does the ghost benefit? Do they become famous?
Hhahahaha. Stop trying to be funny my friend because it does not fit into this context. i tried thinking about the sarcasm in the idea of a ghost being famous and wondered whether they have their own small world where the greatest ghost is the one who haunts most.
For real, I believe ghost exist somewhere but not the way we portray the whole thing here on earth, that is why they is something like metaphysics.
@ElectorAlexande Not me. I do not believe ghosts exist. We make them out. Read me right. We cultivate them and make them real.
You can also say youbare right but I won't classify what humans make and what we can ghost ourselves.
@Youngshark It is not a matter of being funny. I was wondering if ghosts have something to gain from haunting. If there is no gain but delight in frightening people then I do not buy the idea. The reason for haunting is in bad taste. I would not love a loved one who comes to disturb me after death.
Hahahaha, am still trying to figure that out, I dont see why ghost should harm someone because it will never become famous by doing so.
I've experienced a lot of paranormal things in my travels to remote places in the Philippines. At one time we were driving to a far province called Tuguegarao and it was night and we got lost, there where no street lights and it was really dark, using only our vehicles head lamps. Then we noticed a person walking in the roadside and we stop to ask for directions but the person didn't look our way or even answered so we went on but after a few minutes again we saw the same person and we don't no what to think, we just sped away after some time we found our way and stopped at a roadside store. We told the store owner what happened and she told us that what we saw wasn't a man but a spirit. I still think of that time. I mean how could we pass the same person twice?
That's a really common occurrence then if that's what the store owner said. I guess ghosts like to hang around the place they died or used to walk to? For other people to see the ghost and have it a common occurrence, it must be true.
Here in the Philippines ghost stories like this have become common and they are usually true. I've friends and family members who have experienced this kind of things while on the road. I have an uncle who was driving a jeep and then he noticed that there was this lady who is riding in his jeep and didn't get off in the stop. He asked her where she will go because he wants to go home, it is already very late. The lady did not answer. He keeps looking at the mirror and suddenly the lady just disappeared.
Interesting. Where can I read more about this? I have interest in knowing some of those phenomenon. And I like to document about this if anything like this is around. I have done some recording of sounds in some odd places. But not much success. I'd love to read on this topic someday. Maybe if you can make thread on this type of topic that would be fun to read.
I wish you can get a place where you can record ghostly sounds. It can be very interesting. The ghosts may see your recorder and maybe snatch it from you or stop from making the noise.
In such case I think they are more likely to be demonic entity if they are to be being deceptive with me. Because normal ghosts usually have no power over the human and the objects can't be hold by them. But recorder if manipulated. That can be some of the time seriously harder to be around because demonic entity can be scary.
I think maybe its true because so many people believe in it, also there are so story about ghost, but my churchmate said to me that if you die your soul will go on heaven or hell they didn't exist in our world the ghost that we heard on some horror story its not fake but its a demon which defies us on what is real.
Yes, they are actually evil spirits. They are what we call "fallen angels" who rebelled against God and went for Satan's side. When people die, the Bible says that man's soul will directly go to only 2 places: Heaven and Hell. There is no such thing as Purgatory in the Bible. Purgatory is just a man-made doctrine. There are only 2 destinations mentioned in the whole Bible, heaven and hell. You will go to heaven when you die if you are saved, meaning you accepted Jesus Christ as your God and Personal Savior when you are still alive. But if not, then you are unsaved and you will go to hell when you die because you did not accept Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior when you're still alive. This is clearly what the Bible says friends. You can be saved now. Accept Jesus Christ as your God and Personal Savior and you can be sure of heaven when you die because that is assured by God Himself. The Bible is like a love letter given by God to us so we will know how to live in this world, how to live our lives He gave us and for us to know what is waiting for us after death.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
I John 5:11-13
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
I have never seen ghosts. But I think they really exist. There are many places and objects known to be haunted in the world. It's so scrary.
Yes, I do believe in the existence of supernatural phenomenon. I've seen a lot of things in my travels that can't be explained by logic, reason nor science. I don't know if they were ghosts of dead people or some other supernatural beings. One thing is certain, when you see one, you'll never forget it.
That must be scary, to be able to experience these supernatural phenomena on your travels is something I don't envy. I wouldn't even deam of it.
Me too, I have no ghost experience and I want to keep it that way.
Hahahaha, me too. When people claim to have seen ghost and their experience, I just smile and hope not to have any encounter.
I believe in it. By hearing from some people have met the ghosts of relatives or children tell about life in the afterlife.

I have a watch a document about that it is really creepy and amazing.
I remember seeing shadow people on a few instances already. You're right you don't forget when you see them. And I honestly just want to forget them again...
That's really creepy, how does it feels like?
It's like the whole world stopped and it's eerily quiet all around. Maybe it's the fear that made me react that way. And you just feel that there's something there.
Oh God, that is something I don't want to experience.
I've experienced seeing a ghost and I could never forget it. I know it's true because other people experienced it with me. I felt a strong chill on my spine and saw a lady dressed in white. I was paralyzed as she went across. It felt like time had stop and my eyes were just following here. As soon as she crossed the room, time resumed and my heart was beating like mad. Other people felt it too when I turned back.
That must be scarry, I haven't seen of ghost before but I am certainly scared of it.
I think the existence of ghosts are being abused by reality TV shows now so most people don't believe in ghosts. But having experienced it first hand, I wouldn't dismiss these shows completely. Some are pure trash and use fake effects but some I relate to in more ways than one.
wow, that must really creepy, experiencing it first hand.
Ooookay. What? I always hear such stories and now that you have said you sawthe ghost when in the company of several other people it seems quite real. I can't even fathom the experience.
I'm actually lucky I experienced it with other people. Because if I experienced it alone, I would have thought I was going crazy and that's a more scary thought in my own opinion. At least with the company of other people, you wouldn't think that. In fact, one of my peers turned super religious after than. Praying countless times a day up to this day.
Hahahaha. I also think that if I ever saw one when alone then I would think that I have gone ballistics.
I agree with you, it is better to experience it with someone than experiencing it alone.
You know what's a mystery to me is I haven't seen the face of a ghost yet. Like you I've seen shadows and figures of people floating or transparent figures, even people like solid figures but never could I see their faces. That's why I'm wondering what does a ghost's face really look like.
It's like dreaming but in real time. You can't make out the face of someone you don't know in your dreams right? It's like that and with the added chills, your brain doesn't process what's going on. To this day I can only imagine what she looked like before. Just a bright white figure slightly glowing. (She was outside looking from the window)
wow, is that is? That's pretty mysterious and creepy.
My biggest wonder with this is whether the ghost when seen has like s concrete structure or they float and can go through stuff. It would be super creepy interacting with one.
ohh that must be scary, experiencing it first hand.
Do not brainwash me here. Answer correctly. Breath in and breath out. Did you really see a ghost?
I've seen a lot of them but you can't see their faces. I would see their silhouette figure or a solid figure but not facing me. Always they have their backs turned or something is obstructing their faces to be seen.
I'm just wondering if someone here saw a ghost's face yet? If you have then what does it look like?
Yes. There are things in this world that cannot be explained through science, logic, and reason. I've seen my share too. I find them intriguing why they are created. A question that I think won't be answered in the near future. I also want to know what is real, Because some said that they are only a product of imagination by some people and can be just a camera trick.
Those who are saying that ghosts or unexplained phenomenon are just a product of ones imagination has never experienced such stuff yet, but if they have, they would also believe in it.
It's exactly because I've seen a ghost that I believe in things not that can't be explained through science and logic. Though it was only a one time thing, I am still wary of things that can just pop up suddenly in my life that I can't comprehend. That is why I'm open minded to anything happening. But I still live life not crazy like those preppers who though 2012 was the end of the world.
Yes I believe in the existence of ghost because I have already an experience seeing such phenomenal creatures in this world. I had an experience before wherein I see a white lady near a school and it was late at night when I was riding on my motorcycle going to my hometown after doing my work. I saw a white lady who is walking very slowly but I cannot see her face, it was all white whenever I am seeing her face. I was really afraid that time and I was near to be accident by that, the good thing is that I have remembered what other people said to me that I should not be afraid because it might puts me into trouble.
Wow that must be traumatic, I have heard a lot of white laddies story before.
What relationship had you with the ghost? Why do you think it was revealing itself to you? How sure are you it was a ghost?
Yes and no, I think there's a lot we don't understand about the universe and there's whole levels of science and mathematics that we may never be able to fully articulate, so I believe that maybe ghosts do exist but not as we define them. The idea of a supernatural entity may just be a level of science that we currently have no comprehension of, making ghosts the easiest definable reasoning.
Wow, that is actually a great perception about the totality. I agree with you that we don't know very thing about the universe yet, and the existence of the ghosts as you have explained makes sense.
What I wonder how one comes to call it a ghost. Can't such figures be angels its fairies? I normally think it is a trick of the mind
Yes, they could be those too. It could be a trick of the mind also, but maybe it's just science that we don't yet understand. Kind of like how people used to think that the Sun revolved around the Earth or that you had humours, maybe we just don't full understand the wordl yet. Science has come a long way but we are stil only in the early stages of discovery, there will be much more to come in the coming decades.
Yet ghosts and their stories baffle me. There were ghosts haunting a neighbouring compound but when the owners sold and relocated, the haunting stopped. They did not go with the ghosts because they do not haunt them there. Ghosts exist in the mind. When they left the new owners had no copy and where they went they believed the ghosts were left behind
Yes, I believe that we are not just the only one living in this world and that ghost is real. Not everything can be explained by science. Ghost do exist and that some of some them are watching us. As creepy and scary as they be but some of them may harm us.
Have you encountered one or what you hear from others? What if they make it up? People can also play pranks on others.
When my father in law died, I was at my room and we had this stand fan which he gave us. It's pretty sturdy and it's pole is quite thick and solid. I was getting ready to go to the wake when suddenly the stand fan lost power and slowly it bowed down, its pole slowly bent to a 90 degree angle. I literally froze up and just stared at it. The pole which was made out of thick and heavy plastic material suddenly bent over like it was a candle being melted.
Then what happened @Kakashi2020? Was it your grandfather bending it? Or was it that he was haunting this way? If your grandfather could not move an inch when his body was lying there then where did he get the energy to bend things?
No,I don't. The mere thought of ghosts is so scaring that it makes the mind to form its own images related to what is perceived.For example, after watching a ghost movie,there is that creepy feeling about presence of ghosts.It is a spiritual or psychological problem.
There you are my friend! Shake my hand. It is all in the mind created with fear and tho thinking too much
Well, as they say, to see is to believe. I haven't had any encounters with these elements. So, as of the moment, I would like to say that I don't believe in them yet. But, if they really are existing with us, then, all we have to do is to respect them.
Biblically speaking, ghost or the soul of dead people wandering around to seek justice or whatever is not true. I do believe in the evil spirits, demonic spirits and fallen angels. I have so many experiences casting out demons and evil spirits from a posessed person. There is nothing powerful than the name of Jesus.
I've also personally seen Catholic priests exorcising demons and it was really scary. We saw shadows leaving the victim as the priest commanded it to leave.
I feel you my friend. It is what I believe too. The blood of Jesus is very powerful.
Well one of these days you might actually see one. And when you do respect is the last thing you'll ever think off. Because fear will grip your body and mind.
Where will you see them? You will be freaking with fright before they even come that you will create your own ghosts
Ghosts can be defined in many ways, it could be an apparition of a dead person in silhouette or shadow form. It could be totally invisible but you could see things moving. Hearing things like loud noises and voices when there couldn't be a source of such sound. All these are perceived as ghosts.
Out of all these ways, unfortunately and fortunately, I haven't experiences even one. I actually don't believe in them, unless I would experience at least one. But, I hope not.
If they are very real as some users purport over here tgen I do not think that such an encounter is great to wish for.
No I will never get involve just to communicate with it. Though I have friends saying that they have the ability to see and can talk to them. Some just ignore it because they really get used it. Most of them saying that they don't like that gift. They are really frightened all the time even they see it already seen it many times.
I do not believe in ghosts. I do believe there is a god of this world (satan) with demon helpers (fallen angels) who try to do everything in their power to mess up and confuse and stop people following Jesus Christ.
I say this even after an experience where I lived in a house where some of us felt some kind of supernatural activity. It was intereesting how it all went away if you mentined Jesus' blood! Yet, there were "presences," and shadows and generally a lot to spook anyone of us out.
I thought it was my imagination until I talked to the person in the bedsit below me. He asked the landlord about one particular night when things were not right at all. We saw his wife bundle everything and the children in a van and leave the next day.
It turned out the landlord tried to murder her. What we may have been feeling was the atmospher of evil. However, the human was doing evil not a ghost.
My family history on one side has a lot of spiritualists and certainly odd things happened like a clock starting the moment one of them, who mended clocks for a hobby, at the moment he died. Apparently, this clock would never work before that.
However, I also know that most magic tricks are an illusion because my great grandma worked for an illusionist and when she and my grandpa had a mind reading act in a music hall at the Elephant and Circus in London, they did it all by signs and tricks.
What I do not believe in is the souls of dead people coming back to haunt us. it is demonic activity impersonating the person or just trying to cause fear. I would not worry to spend a night in a haunted house or anything like that as I believe the power of the Jesus I serve is stronger and all I would do is tell whatever it was to get lost.
The Bible says not to consult wizards and mediums so no way would I ever do that.
The power of suggestion is also real. Words carry power and in some societies a curse will kil a person because they believe in the poswer of those words. The power of the mind and the ability of the mind to suggest is very strong indeed.
There is a supernatural world, yes. There are beings that are not human, yes, but they are not ghosts.
I totally agree with you. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27 "It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgement." In addition to that, you can use Luke 19 as a reference. There is no reference in the Bible that supports the argument that ghost or the spirit of the dead people are true. Fallen angels and evil spirits are true and the Bible supports this argument.
Oh, this is a great point. I am learning from this thread, and I'm so sorry that I don't know Bible verses this much.
Ahh, there's this story on the Bible, old testament. When King Saul contacted the spirit of a dead prophet to ask some questions. That means spirits and ghosts are real that's why God prohibits people from contacting the spirits of the dead.
My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure if it's just the factor of us being afraid to live simply once in the material world or not, but the whole idea about life after death has been bothering the humanity ever since. I'd suggest you to watch short TV series called "Lore". They reveal several prospects of how the humanity has been viewing this whole ghots and supernatural world ever since the beginning.
What you said about mentioning the Blood of Jesus Christ as a potent tool to ward off evil is true. I remember when I got the chance to watch an exorcism by accident. The priest said this words "By the living Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I command thee to leave!". Suddenly we saw 3 shadows that leaped out from the woman's body and we were really scared. During the exorcism proper the priests, there were two of them with about 4 other assistants told us to never stop praying during the exorcism and that we should never look at the eyes of the woman. It was really really scary.
I believe in it. By hearing from some people have met the ghosts of relatives or children tell about life in the afterlife.
There have been many people in any culture have claimed they have seen or encountered ghosts in one form or another. Some said it is a spiritual being and some associated it as hallucinations. All these have their own merits, without concrete scientific proof, the existence of ghost is always the urban myth that interests the people. I believe the existence of ghost lives in one's personal belief.
I don't know if djinns and ghosts are the same thing but I heard a story about someone who supposedly met a djinn in a bus.
This person was traveling. He got into a bus, got into a random seat. From the moment he got in that seat, he had this oppressive feeling that something wasn't right. And sure enough after some time he got the sensation that something sharp was being held against his temple. He turned to confront the passenger behind him but the story says, "the passenger vanished instantly."
Whether that story is true or not I don't know but that there are beings other than humans on earth that is a fact. Call them ghosts or djinns or demons, they do exist.
Djinns are supposed to be creations of God like angels. But they're below the rank of angels. Like people they where given free will and they could appear in human form or in animal form. They possessed powers. It is said that each human has a djinn companion.
It is said that each human has a djinn companion.
No, I don't believe in the existence of ghost. It come in like luck and I don't believe in luck. You have to earn your way. Ghost might not be a ghost but it may be the retribution of life that comes back to haunt you. As long as I dont encounter my answer will not change.
I'm agnostic, so I don't really know. I'm still searching myself in both faith, and spiritual elements in this world.
As to regarding your question, I don't believe in ghosts the way movie portraits them, but rather as something more spiritual. That our loved one's come to visit us. Personally I'd be an atheist if I wouldn't have strange dreams, that eventually become true in life. It's quite scary actually. And science can't explain it.
I would not like my dead relative to come to visit me. I have no relationship with the dead. They died and I should meet them in my death.
The same with me. I really have no dreams of meeting them and I haven't had any experience with the souls ever. I would like to keep it that way though.
Well, they do have plans of visiting you. You should not be afraid. They are your relatives and loves one's. I'm sure, they're not going to harm you. They just want to see you and spend time. It's all in the mind. Be brave.
What if your dead relative visit you with tons of money? Are you not going to welcome them? Don't you want to spend time with them? Was there ever a time that you wish they're still alive? We sometimes missed them. Probably, during our death and we don't have the memory to know our loves one's.
Hmm, interesting. You don't believe in ghosts, yet you believe in the afterlife. Although there's no scientific explanation of it too and as far as I know, no human had come back from the dead to tell the story.
I haven't seen any ghost yet but I had experienced many unexplainable happenings in my life especially when I was having my on the job training in an old school. I heard the sound of the door being hit by something then I saw it moved yet no one is there. I even checked if there was a stone or twig that hit it but the ground is clear then I heard the teachers of the school talking about the ghost who just hit the door again. That means it happens even before. There will always be a turning point where you would believe even though you don't want to.
Why was the ghost hitting the door? Which clothes did he wear? Can't a person just make the same mischief and blame it on ghosts.
There are really some things that science cannot explained such as on why the sea is very salty wherein the lake is not salty. It is one of the few things that I want to know the answer and the solution for it. I really believe that we are not the only entity that is living in this world because we still have many things that we have not yet discovered..
Seas are salty because evaluation takes place over a wide area making the sea salty. There are salty lakes due to not having outlets. Freshwater lakes have outlets even if they are underground.
As much as I would like to believe in the supernatural, I can’t say that I do. I’ve heard a lot of stories and anecdotes from friends, family, and acquaintances, but I always feel like everything has a logical explanation. Most supernatural experiences that people have, often have explanations so simple that they wouldn’t have even thought of them.
I believe that if “ghosts” do exist, there is a scientific explanation for them, like some sort of space-time anomaly where multiple dimensions cross paths or something like that. I don’t believe that ghosts would be the literal spirits of the deceased.
A good thinking. Ghosts should be spirits of the dead. Do they have a scientific explanation. No.
There are many things science can't explain.
The supernatural happens to be one of them because what happens in this realm, the human mind can't grasp and no explanation for supernatural phenomenon (such as sighting of a ghost) can (for that reason) be furnished.
@DenisP that's how my brain works for the most part too, I think. Some of my friends and family have spoken about their experiences but my brain always tries to rationalize their experiences as something that science can explain.
Yes, if you believe in the existence of God, you should believe in the existence of demons as well. The universe deals with the equal and opposite forces. All the holy books have mentions of the evil/demon in some form so it must be true. Although I haven't seen personally, I strongly they are around us. It is better not to establish any kind of contact with them. Some people have shared their own stories so it is worth believing that ghosts do exist but if you firmly believe in The Almighty, you need not fear any evil.
I doubt the existence of God. In my area, there was a man who killed all his kin. Ghosts were said to inhabit that land. It was later sold to another person and the ghosts evaporated. It was just in the mind
Ghosts, dragons, fairies, gnomes, elves, unicorns, and many others, are existing in the mind. Who has encountered a ghost? What did the ghost tell him?
My father did encountered his dead father in a dream when he was given instructions on how to bury him in order to avoid getting the family into any spiritual troubles because he was a native doctor.
There are lots of people that I know personally that have been visited by ghosts and had messages passed across to them.
Dragons used to exist but not anymore.
Well I have never ever seen a ghost in my life but I have heard from people who have actually seen ghosts with there own eyes. I do believe that ghosts do exist in the world around us. However i think that they have a very unfortunate and sad existence. It is said that people who die suddenly due to accidents or people who commit suicides due to depression, or due to complete hopelessness in there life become ghosts after their deaths. However, I have myself never seen a ghost and therefore ,cant be very sure of all these things.
My own personal experience with a ghost is not just seeing the spirit but I was touched by it and I felt the power and coldness of the spirit.
I almost fell down immediately after having the encounter with the ghost but I was spiritually strong enough to withstand it.
@martinsx1 that sounds scary - so it literally feels like a cold sensation sweeps over you? I've always wanted to ask people who have experienced a ghost lots of questions!
Of course yes, I believe that ghosts as well as evil spirits very well exist in our world today.
Personally, I have had more than one encounter with ghosts and I must confess that I find interesting and intriguing.
I have not had any experience with ghosts, but most people are always of the opinion that they have had. So, I think that it is all about trying to believe from what others are saying.
Aren't you scared? I mean when you said you find them interesting and intriguing, do you mean you would like to talk to them given a chance?
I haven't had any personal experience with seeing ghosts so it's a little hard for me to truly believe they exist. I do have friends and family that have spoken of experiences with ghosts, but I guess my brain operates in too much of a scientific manner and I generally find ways to explain things. I guess no one can be 100% sure though.
We can't really he 100% sure on this as it is always something that took place in a subconscious manner that we may find it difficult to analyze how everything really happened.
I agree with you, sometimes our brain trick us and it is hard to prove the existence of ghost.
There are really a lot of supernatural things that is happening in this world that are hard to explain sometimes. I think that one of it are the paranormal experts were people do make some ghost hunting, I just don't know if it is real or not since I have not been into this kind of activity and I usually find it to be interesting. I have a lot of questions about paranormal activities which needs and answer and exploitation.
The thing is that we always have doubts once this kind of situation has not happened to us. This is the point where we always feel weak getting to understand what ghosts are all about.
I am confused people say they believe in God but they don't believe in ghost. So it's like you believe in positive and negative does not exist. That is some really out of bound logic. Either don't believe in both. Or believe in both being existing. Selective belief does not work and never helps anyone from what I have seen.
You have a point because God is not man, but a supernatural being who's the creator of the world. I think it is all about getting to believe that he is a ghost as well.
Maybe possible that he is kind of simulation creator. With both good and bad. And he seems to own the universe or universe itself. So maybe he is bit of both. And he does not take side for whatever happens. And we are on our own on how we choose to respond.
There is a difference between a ghost and a spirit. A ghost is supposedly the non-physical part of any creature that has a body. They've been reports of people seeing the ghosts of animals (like the horse which the headless man in Sleepy Hollow rides). So a ghost without a body isn't considered a living being.
A spirit on the other hand is a living, intelligent, supernatural being, has no corporeal body but can directly interact with matter altering it in different ways. Ghosts can't do that but spirit beings can.
Sometimes we are really having some different ideas when it comes to certain things especially in believing to particular ghost or god because it will depend on us on how we look at them. There are some instance that we tend to believe that a particular thing is existing because of some real experiences or because of the religion that we are a member of. Our thoughts are being influence by the people or the things that surround us and it is really hard to deal at some time.
It is all about the different ideas that we have on cases like this. This is pretty something that we should always take a look at before deciding that it is okay to believe in one thing or another.
I do have experience but not with ghost. It's other earth element. I have not seen it but I felt it. In my younger days, there was a big mango tree at the back of our house. Anyone who passed by gets a cold and stiffness of the neck area. There is something strange in the tree. It doesn't bear fruit and has a thick full leaves. It looks lonely and mysterious. I also heard tiny voices as you passed thru the mango tree. It was a frightening experience.
Now that's scary! You hear little voices? Are you sure those are not girls hiding behind bushes talking about you because they have a crush on you? Nevertheless, I got goosebumps as soon as I read your story.
Yes, it so tiny but you can heard it. It is different from human voice who played trick on. No one likes to hide or play around that area. You might see something, if you stay there for a long time. There was also an instance, in our office. I saw a person's shadow. I was alone, it was a cold cloudy afternoon where surroundings was quiet. That was the first time I felt scared. I wanted to go home but I still have to finish my work. I need to convince myself that it was nothing. I turned the television to distract my feelings. I know there was something in there because it was an old building. It feels creepy.
Have you ever considered the idea that you might have what they call a "third-eye" or something? I mean because it happens to you a lot.
No, I don't want to think that way. I might lost my head. Seeing other creatures is something I don't want to happen. It is a mental challenge to face every circumstances. I know, we are not the only living creatures in our world and we need to recognize it. Respect them and let them live. That's why every time I go inside our office especially in the morning. I usually greeted them, I say " Good morning" or bid " Goodbye". Sometimes, when I felt something strange I would say " Don't scared me, I am working". But, mostly of the time I say my prayer to seek God's guidance and protection.
I see I think that's an excellent way of giving respect to them. Although you need to make sure to tell your officemates about it or else they might assume you're crazy or something.
I have a website on which paid guest posts are available. DA 31.

Since we're talking about ghosts here, can I GHOSTwrite on your website too? No pun intended.
this is hilarious, I hope you can get a ghostwriting job on his website.
Hehe, I mean there might be a ghostwriting position open that's why I asked. You'll never know.
I don't have any experience with ghost before. Whether they really exist or not, I don't look forward to see one. I heard lots of stories from other people regarding their experience with ghost. I had goosebumps every time I hear someone talking about their encounter with ghosts.
I agree with you, I am really afraid of ghost even if I haven't had paranormal experience.
I heard lots of stories from other people regarding their experience with ghost.
I have read a story that just like this, and it was really creepy because the passenger's stop is in front of a tree.
The ghost question is always a tricky one to answer. Why? How can you prove your answer? I guess you can't. I do believe in a spiritual world. I do believe there is a life after death. So, do I believe in ghosts? Not sure how to answer that without simply saying: "There is more to the world than meets the eye".
I agree with you, sometimes maybe our brain is just tricking us or something.
I've never seen one, yet so my answer is no. I'll change my answer as soon as I see one, hoping it's not too soon as I'm afraid of them ghosts, haha!
you are lucky, because you haven't seen one. I haven't seen one either but a few of my friends has paranormal experience so I believe in ghost.
Really? Now that's pretty scary like having a friend who can see ghosts. For example, you're with him/her then all of a sudden he/she would say there is someone beside you that you cannot see. I'll maybe freak out.
Yes, I believe ghosts exist. Ghost is just another word for spirit. However, if you are referring to the spirits of the dead continuing their existence in this world along with the living spirits, then NO I don't believe that. At any rate, I only concern myself with the existence of one ghost and that's the Holy Ghost Who exists … everywhere.
I was talking about the ghosts of those that are dead. I think that they are not in existence as it is the evil spirits that always take their forms to try and confuse those that they want to confuse in the world as well which is not looking fine.
Have you heard about ghosts being captured on CCTV.If you have experienced ghosts in a particular place,could you have cameras installed. By doing so,you could capture their drama and know what they are up to.With this technology,we should be ahead of them.The sneaking in and making a disappearing act without trace should be a thing of the past.Seeing is believing.
I think ghosts are real but we should bit be scared of them they don't have enough poeer over us because God is the most powerful above all thus we should thrust and believe in him more.
Even though ghosts are real, we should be more scared and wary of those who are still alive because they are more capable of harming us than those who are already dead.
You're right. Although some horror movies depict them as being harmful, like having the ability to manipulate certain things maybe that's why we are scared of them in real life.
Some actually do that. They can be capable of doing stuff. Especially, if they've harnessed enough negative energy from fear and anger. It's best to stay calm and positive in order to ward off evil. Pray for strength from God and He will protect you.
Really? I can't say as I have not dealt with one, but if that is true, it made me more scared hehe. And you're right, during circumstances like these, asking for God's help is the best thing to do.
You have a good point. The living can do more harm to people. But the spirits can also cause harm depending on the situation. That's why it's best not to go near haunted places. You wouldn't want to put anyone in danger of such malevolent entities.
I think that it would be very hard for a particular person to believe in the existence of ghost if he/she didn't have an experience or haven't seen it personally because as what other people say to see is to believe. We tend to believe on certain things if we personally see them or experience them.
As a child I always questioned the paranormal. I didn't believe until one night me and my cousin's were outside of my church in the back just walking and talking because we hadn't seen eachother in a while. And then out of nowhere this white glowing figure appears and I instantly turn and run away my cousins just stood there in shock and amazement until i yelled "are you guys just going to stand there" and they finally started running away. So yes I believe.
This is strange and something that I won't want to experience. There is something with being careful and that is the need for us to stay away from things that will connect us with those kind of beings.
That is a very scary experience. If I were you, I will also ran as fast as I could. I am very scared of ghosts and I hate it everytime that I will feel their presence. I just hope to never experience the same experience as you did.
Life has a lot of mystery that life is a mystery in itself. I have heard a lot of stories about ghosts and even my sister had experienced seeing one but there are no solid proof. What about a ghost appearing to a crowd? Has it happened already? I’m not really being skeptical about the existence of ghosts but my issue is the proof because until now no one can present hard evidence.
I wouldn't believe either if i didnt see for myself. I'm the type that needs solid proof also. That wasn't my last encounter, I had a couple more as i grew up. So Im pretty much sold.
Do you believe in the existence of ghost in our world: We are now in the new generation years. Yes, I believe that in our world now, ghost still do exists. During all soul's day, christians are oblige to go to cemetery to pray for their loved ones who already dead and light a candle to their way into heaven.
I don't believe in ghosts.
Either it is reflection of our ponder where we feel horribly or horror movie or anything act on our brain then normal matter seems horrible as Ghosts. Seldom its irrefutable for someone.In every communal ,anomaly or oddity persons are out of Ghost.A tiny hearten one advocate ghosts exceptionally more terrific what degrade another at purpose of fear.Actually Ghost is a thinking.
I have never had any contact with ghosts so I can't say for sure whether they exist or not. However if you believe that the spiritual world exists its fair to say that there is a good chance that they exist. A ghost is normally defined generally as the spirit of a dead person that appears to someone that is still alive because they are not settled e.g because they were murdered e.t.c. So maybe ghosts exist, I can't say this for sure. In my Country they believe if dead people have something to say they appear in someone's dreams. Is this the same thing?
Yes. I believe in ghosts. The supernatural world is true as much as the physical world is true. The Bible speaks of a Supernatural God who made the world and the supernatural beings created by God, like angels. They are spirits that we cannot see but they do exist. We have a soul and spirit also that we cannot see but we have it. The soul is the real person and not the physical body.
Ghosts are spirits but they are actually evil spirits or fallen angels.
Yes, I do believe in ghost and I am afraid of them. I have seen and felt ghosts before and I can say that it was a terrifying experience. When I was still a child, that was late in the afternoon, I saw a pure black shadow fastly walked in front of me. I almost cried that time and until now, I could still remember that scene. Also, I could feel the presence of them and I hate it. I know many people will say that it is just an imagination of our creative mind, and that is what I always think everytime that I could a presence around me. I scared of them honestly and I hate these feelings from them.
That's really terrifying. I can relate with your experience. I've also had my encounter with ghosts. But mine was a white lady. Good thing it wasn't a dangerous entity. It seemed like one of those spirits that was simply stuck on Earth.
I also think that those ghosts who got stuck here on Earth or maybe they are not yet informed that they are already dead. Truly, it is a terrfying experience as until now, I could still remember the image that I saw that time.
I felt something unusual around me many times. I politely requested "Go away", seriously.
That's unnerving. I wonder if they were specifically targeting you. Some spirits do that. I wouldn't want anything like that to happen to me. I hope they went away.
I never had a ghost experience. I cannot say that I believe in the exsistence of ghosts but i cannot say that I dont either. Not everybody can have this experience but if I would have one I would like it to see the ghost of my loved ones who already passed away.
I'm Nigerian and we're a superstitious lot so I have no choice but to believe that there are ghosts and evils, mystical creatures whose intent is to harm us. I've never come in contact with or had any supernatural encounter but I have heard stories and while l am often reluctant to believe them, I have no choice when the story is being told by someone l respect and see as "rational" and "sane". It's a conundrum I'm in because my rational mind doesn't want to believe such things exist yet I'm afraid of the dark and what might be lurking.
Twenty-six years of existence and I haven't seen any ghost in my lifetime. I've heared of poltergeist existing that my seem to be legit, but that's mostly away from my country.Biblical facts talks about occurrence of fallen angel, and that might be the plausible reason of their existence. Nowadays, most horror comes from real people who do crime. They are the real definition of ghost, because they might have lost their soul and humanity even before they died.
I haven't really had any form of contact with ghosts since I was born, however I still believe in them. Some of my friends claim that they have seen ghosts before. I think some of them are just utter rubbish but what astounds me is I have this one friend, and trust me he is the most honest person that I've ever known, he believes he has seen a ghost before. I can't think of a logical way to put a conclusion on his claim. Its either he is lying, which is very unlikely given that I know him for who he really is, or he is telling the truth and has really seen a ghost. His claim is probably the strongest force that keeps me on believing that ghosts do exist.
Yes, I believe in ghosts. I have seen ghosts when I was younger. They are real. I have seen different forms of them. When I was younger, I would see creatures that looked like monsters. They had tails and gross-looking skin. Some of them even looked like their skin was decaying. They really looked like monsters. I can't explain clearly how they looked because they were in different forms. They were scary and that time, they wanted to get me. They would come into our room from the window and they were huge in number. They would gather around me and I was really afraid. I was crying hard and I would hug my mother. My family couldn't see them but I could. Then my grandmother took a broom and just swayed it around the air. They were afraid of it and they jumped out of our window one by one. I would never forget the night in my life. That was terrifying.
There was also an instance when I saw an old man walking with his rod. He was blurred like gaseous in appearance. I knew then that he was a spirit and not a physical person. I was staring at him while he was walking with his head bowed. Then when he passed through the wall, that's the time I ran and I was very afraid. Another instance was during one afternoon when I was just staring out of our house window, a creature suddenly appeared in front of me. I couldn't recognize its appearance because it doesn't look like a human. It has a heart-shaped face and its face was full of blemishes. Until now, it is still fresh in my mind. I had lots of encounters with the spirit-world when I was younger. People may not believe in me but these are my real experiences and its reality cannot be changed whether people believe it or not. These are my personal experiences that I will always remember in my heart and in my mind. So Yes, I believe in ghosts! Then when I became a Christian and I got saved, I learned that these are actually evil spirits (fallen angels). They would just disguise into different forms. Spirits and the Supernatural world are real. It's not just what we see. There is still more to this world than what we can physically perceive.
