        My grandmother recently died.  Two days prior to her death, my grandfather came by for a brief visit (The thing is, grampa has been dead for years).  I was in my room, on my computer, at my desk which faces the wall with the door, when I saw him walk by. WTF?!  I had to do a double take!  I stood up and walked towards the door... and there he was in the hallway, just standing there, didnt say anything.  It was him!  He wasn't ghost-like, I couldn't see through his body or anything like that.  And after a few seconds, he walked down the stairs, and that was it.  Didnt say anything.  I kinda wish he said something.  He pulled that same sneaky visit when I was 20 (when he was alive).  That time, I was having sex with a girlfriend.  We looked up, and my grandpa was standing there at the doorway. lol  How embarrassing!  I wonder how long he had been standing there.  lol

        Yesterday morning, I thought I saw my grandfather's ghost again...but this time it was out the corner of my eye...too brief...just my imagination is what I tell myself.  And so, all day all night yesterday, I had been kinda sorta hoping waiting for him to stop by again, so I could catch him in the act of 'visiting.'  lol  I just wanna say 'Whats up?'  lol

        Before seeing my grandfather that night, prior to my grandma's death, I didnt really believe ghosts.  But now, I'm convinced they exist.

        Hello Ishin   I most definately believe in ghosts/spirits. I had a similar experience w/my grandfather after he passed away I had stayed w/my grandma that following week and slept in my grandpas room.  I awoke to see some cloudy image, like my eyes werent focused and felt this comforting feeling  I just knew that was my grampas "touch"!  I was so at peace after this happened, as we were very close. I just knew he was sayin that it was ok and he was ok

        Ishin, Ishin, Ishin...
        I don't necessarily believe in ghosts, like Casper...lol...but gosh darn, so many ways have there been messages given to me that nobody else but the departed person would have known to "say" or convey to me.  One thing is heart shaped rocks.  I'll be somewhere, get this feeling, and within about a minute, there's a heart shaped rock.  Last one was a seashell, a couple of weeks ago.  It's not like they are all that common.
        I'm still in love with this guy who's been dead now since 1988-my fiance, Rick, who told me a week before he wasn't always going to be around to help me (then added, well, I *will* be there, but...).  I get vibes from him regularly, and his son says he has visited at their old house several times ("oh, it's just my dad again...").  For example, I was listening to the radio and they were having people call in and give "pet names" their gf/bf had for them.  I thought of Rick and how this one time he looked at me all funny and called me "poopybutt".  He only did it once and it was strange at the time.  Next thing I know, some girl comes on the radio and says,"my boyfriend used to call me poopybutt".  Those are the only two times I'd ever even heard anyone use the word.
        Well, there's been hundreds of these strange coincidences.  So many I'm sure some folks think I am nuts even bringing them up.  I have never actually seen a departed person physically but I have felt them, been influenced by them, and sometimes in dreams...well...the mind is a tricky thing.

        I once drew a charcoal picture of a man's face, but the nose/mouth area was kinda like dented in, and right in front of his eyes I drew this little thing that looked like a hula-girl.  The man looked a little like Henry, my boyfriend who was gone (not dead) for a long time.  I wondered why the wierd face and why the little hulagirl.  Like something on a dashboard.  Henry died of an overdose in an HEB parking lot, in my car.  I  had been looking for him (and my car!) for days.  He had been dead 3 days when they finally noticed him in their parking lot.  they had to have a  closed casket funeral because his face was dented from having been on the steering wheel the whole time.  Hula girl on dashboard?  Dented face?  About a year later I made the connection.  It was quite a realization I had drawn that picture at least a year before his death.

        Some people said I just saw something I wanted to see in that drawing.  Trust me, it's not something I wanted to see - it was downright creepy.

        I'm going to quit for now, other than to reveal chillymellow is a word that Rick came up with ("they need something like a chillymellow-here, have a chillymellow) one evening to describe something that you could take or have to chill and/or (haha) mellow you out when you were stressed.  Hope you get to have another visit with your grandpa-maybe he'll wave at you to say hello.

        I think you're nutz!  haha...you know i'm jk.  well maybe just a little nutz.  lol

        Yeah, the trippy thing is I actually saw my gramps physically.  It wasn't scary or anything...it just tripped me out.

        I'm prepared now...next time I see him, I'm gonna lunge forward and grab him before he can get away.  lol

        Ishin.. i don't know how i would handle SEEING someone in front of me that has passed on, i kind of feel i wouldn't be too scared if i know them say my mother or brother,.. but seeing someone i dont know.. different story..

        Well, i did have an experience we couldn't put a peticular person on it, it did happen and there was something or someone there.. this link tells the story if you want to read it..

        http://www.latestcasinobonuses.com/onlinecasinobonusforum/general-discussion/how-many-of-you-beleive/

        as far as individual persons not me but my daughter has had some with her father, he was a chef in his profession, but also at home he was very protective of his stove and oven, when she would clean hers she would lift the burners to clean under them placing them back after.. all done, she would walk out of the kitchen a few minutes later returning to the kitchen and find the burners stacked.. now this didn't happen just one time, a few more times on different occasions, the burners were either re-arranged or stacked, she says she knows it's her father and it doesn't scare her, but by golly gee bee geez it would scare the heck out of me...

        Yeah, i'm trying to say, if it is someone we know how can that scare us, my daughter says she just feels calm because she beleives it's her father, he would cause no harm to her.

        But in the other story with the balloons.. something like that being an unknown is scarey, later i did hear gossip in the apt complex about other strange things that happened to other people, but nothing more to us. I'll never forget the room getting so cold and feeling so chilled, not only i but the kids and her father too.

        Yes Ish, I believe in ghosts.  Rather, spirits, us out of body form. I believe your grandfather was visiting, paying you a visit and I think it's touching that you were aware of his presence:)

        After my mom died we found a note she had written and hidden in a drawer that said on the outside: DO NOT OPEN THIS OR I WILL HAUNT YOU FOREVER!

        We opened it.  I don't think we've been haunted.  It was for me an interesting insight into my mom's secret silly human thoughts.

        Drpsyche38-your opinion always counts, doesn't it?  What does the current year on our human-brainly projected calendar have to do with it?  I mean, it could be 5000 BC or AD (should you choose to believe in the whole BC/AC theory) and your statement should always be true.  Or false.  Thanks for sharing your opinion.  Mine is that if the perceptions of the human brain are such that if a pattern or phenomenon is perceived or exists, we will give it a name.  Ghosts exist in many people's perceptions.  Coincidences do as well.  The fact that we have a word "ghost" pretty much says a "ghost" can exist, even if it's only a projection of a feeling.  Heck, I'll bet there is a "ghost" in every one of my dictionaries.  Doesn't mean you'll ever meet one.

        Chilly, that's a cute story, my mom had the same sense of humor.  I tend to agree with the good Drpsyche here, but disagree on this one.  It's one of those things where you have to experience it and/or believe it, like religion.  And we don't wanna get started on that lol.

        what if the name "ghost" had another name like "hats" would there be no such thing, i think it is what society has put in our brains that theres no such thing so we don't see them, the only people that do see them are the ones who at no point in their lives beleives that there is no such thing, at some point its been in their mind that they do exist. If you have an absolute no such thing, do not exist, theres some explaination type of mind other then it was a ghost.. then yes they do not exist.. TO YOU

        Well, I was laying in bed (Dorm style) with several others..Saw a "Figure" walk down the hallyway towards us. Couldn't make who it was out, so then I saw "It" turn and walk into a solid steel door.  The guy beside me said "Did you see that?" We went to check the three possible areas "It" could have gone into.

        Nothing in the 2 and the third was that steel door (To the furnace) so that's been one of mine experiences.

        I have had a couple others I really treasure personally. Sometimes I'll "Feel" something walking on my bed and then it may feel like it's walking on my legs. This was my cat who passed many years ago.

        The other times it's as though something heavy jumped on the bed and then flopped down. That would be my dog Tick, he was forever doing that.

        That's when I miss them all the most. :'( :'( :'( :'(
