    This has been very interesting read this morning :) Some creepy, some fascinating.

    We have only been our house a couple of years and our house was at that time 9 years old. My two year old son, at the time, was sitting on our back porch and was looking out the window and said, "mom, who is that old man in the trees?" I told him I didnt know and I asked what his name was and he said, "Fred." Over time I would ask my son if he stills sees him out there and he says he does and then there are times he says he doesnt.

    Another time, was when I lived by myself in a small apartment. There were a couple of nights around midnight that my radio would just turn on by itself. After the second time I unplugged it lol Then one morning I was in the shower and I felt something push my right shoulder while washing my hair. I actually turned around to see if someone was with me lol of course there was not.

    And then when I was a child my twin sister and I lived in an old home. We were in our bedroom playing one day and we both saw an old lady with blue hair in our closet. We told our parents about it and they asked the realtor about it and were told that the lady prior to us had died in the house.

    SO, yes, I believe.

    Yes, I believe.

    FABULOUS stories! I can't remember the last time I read EVERY single post. It is nice to know that so many others have had these experiences.

    My mom experienced "premonitions" frequently: We would often meet half way between our homes, then continue on walking to one or the other home. It had rained one morning and she told my (little at the time) kids that they would find a penny in a puddle at our meeting point. Sure enough, even though we got there before her, they found a penny in one of the puddles!

    Another time, when my brother was in the Navy, (I was still at home with her)I was awakened by her moving about the house and asked what was wrong. She responded by say that she just "knew" Georgie was coming to visit from San Diego. We sat up and he showed up that night, having ridden his motorcycle across the country more than 2,000 miles!

    I felt she was alerted by her angel. I will post more of my own experiences soon.

    This is all so interesting! Oh, yes, I believe in both ghosts and angels.
    I was driving and my daughter was in the passenger seat. I was just ready to turn left at an intersection; there was an oncoming car also waiting to turn left. Someone screamed "STOP!!!" inside my head, so I stopped! A car came flying around the oncoming car. They would have most likely killed my daughter.

    My brother was driving his semi when a crazy guy with a death wish, driving on the other side of the interstate drove down in the ditch and pulled out right in from of my brother. My brother could not move over as he was passing another truck at the time. This huge accident happened where the cab of the semi was totally crushed except for a "protective bubble" where my brother was sitting.
    My husband and I went on a tour of a haunted mansion while on vacation. In one room there was a big wooden chair that supposedly was possessed by a ghost. The tour leader moved her hand down the chair. One woman screamed and almost fainted. I felt this "energy" fly into my belly and move down my arms and out my fingertips. It took all my energy with it. It was pretty creepy and cool at the same time.

    I AGREE--Never let children play with OUIJA boards!! Or anyone else in my house.
    ----------------------------
    I got rid of the Ouija board my DH had when we married.

    In my family, we have "the three knocks" on the door. In the evening when we hear 3 knocks on the door and no one is there, wait and 3 more, nobody there, and 3 more, then we start calling folks to tell them we love them. And quickly visiting near by family, because that is a warning some family member is dying.
    My Mom lived in Ohio in 1941 and her brother was visiting and they heard the 3 series of knocks, so Uncle Elmer immediately got in his car and went home to WV so he was there when my Grandpa died. Got there a few hours before. Others also came in the day before, just for visiting but hadn't been there for a while. They never said why, but we knew they had also had the warning.

    I had an experience a few years ago after driving straight thur from Ocala, fla to Ft. Wood.Mo approx. 17 hours. ( never doing that again) I was driving at 3;00am and was falling asleep, BUT it was only another 20 minutes till we would be home. So instead of waking up my husband I thought I could make it. WELL....that almost did not happen. I drove off the edge of the Highway I-44 into a soft shoulder. While all this was going on a VOICE was saying to me..You can drive this out, just do not slam on the brakes and just let the van slow down on it own and do not over steer. WOW a lot to listen to while I'm seeing grass flying by the passenger side window where my husbands head was resting. I'll swear to this day is was my parents talking to me. I was so calm (till it stopped moving) all I did was wake my husband before we got completely stopped. His response was "Pretty Darn good driving". For once, I listened to my parents giving me good advice.
    I hear my son's cry for help in the middle of the night once too. He was on a ship in the Gulf and recieved a "Dear John" letter from his wife. Things got a little messy and he got in a fight..and I knew it. A few hours later he called me to tell what happened etc and I Knew most of it already. Mother's intuition or Angels preparing me for the news???
    They are out there to protect us, if we let them.

    I haven't seen ghosts but my sister claimed to have seen my grandmother two different times outside her home shortly after grandma died. My sister was living in grandma's house at the time grandma died. grandma was at my aunt's home, part of the farm property, and she wanted to "go home" so badly, and couldn't. After the farm was sold, three different times, each family reported seeing or heariong ghosts. What is so great about that ,to me anyway, my grandma definitly believed and loved to tell ghost stories, so she would defintly " haunt her own home if she could. LOL My own expeeiences are mostly dreamlike. In my dreams, my dad has always come to "visit" those are his words, and and he is only going to be there for a short time . My sisters and my mom also dreamed of dad that same way, always a visit. My last dream of my dad was about three weeks before my mom died, and in it he was coming into the kitchen , and he said ,"it is time" When I cried "no daddy", he said ,"mom is tired, and it is time for her to go." I was only 19 when dad died, and 30 when mom died., and I really was sort of emotionally dependent on my mom, sort of scared I couldn't make it without her support. My clearest dream of mom, was right before Thanksgiving, just a few months after she passed. In that dream, I was in my kitchen, making Thanksgiving dinner and mom and her very best friend were sitting at the bar. Aunt Mayme said,"Ade, don't you think we should help her?" And Mom answered ."no, Carol is perfectly able to handle things all by herself."These "dreams" give me a lot of comfort, and I do believe I am actually getting a visit from them in that manner. My Mom had a dream that my brother, who was in the navy and in the Aleaution(?) Islands had fallen overboard and she could see himn in the water and he called for her. She was notified a couple days later that that had actually happened. My brother had seen many things that made him have doubts about God, and toward his end, he was so scared of dying. I was with him, and whatI saw and heard, made me a strong believer that there is a life after, and that our loved ones are waiting for us. My brother had slipped into a coma, and suddenly, he was making a heart-rendering sound that at first I thought was from pain. When I rushed to his side, I was amazed to see that he was crying and laughing at the same time, and there were tears in his eyes. He cried,"MOM!!" I responded to him as if he were my son, sang the LOrd's Prayer for him, and he passed as soon as I finished. I have no doubt that he saw my mother, and she was waiting for him, so he was able to die, knowing all he had been taught was true, and he didn't need to be afraid to go.

He counted, pointing, one, two, three, up to nine, then calmly told me that "They are all there waiting for me" then pointed to the right of the room and said that "The rest of them are over there", and then went out again. Nine added up to his parents and brothers who had gone before, and some of his most loved aunts.
    When I told the ER nurse, he wasn't surprised.
    I had worked with him before so he told me that he saw it often on the last day but no one wanted to hear it so he never said anything except when asked. He said for me to call in the family...he died later that evening.

    A couple of days later I was sitting alone in the house and heard him tell me Goodbye, using my pet name only he called me.
    Oh Geezeee you made me cry!

    I am glad so many people are telling their stories about ghosts/spirits/angels. I believe now people have become more open about it and it helps vadidate my experiences too.

    Have any if you read the book "Heaven is for Real, An Astonishing Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back" by Todd Burpo. Very interesting. It is the story of a very young boy's experiences in heaven.

    I often have dreams of my paternal grandmother, her daughters (my two favorite aunts); sometimes they are all in my grandmothers small kitchen, cooking up wonderful food and having a jolly time - when I wake, I can smell the food!

    I often hear my mother's voice and feel her soft touch. Occasionally I will sniff her cigaret smoke. No one smokes in my home.

    My son who has a music studio in our attic, told me a couple of times that when he glanced out his door toward the door to the greater part of the attic, he saw a figure all in black but was not afraid since he felt the figure was not malevolent. The figure dissipated at once.

    My father told me of a time many years ago when he and his two brothers went up to Wisconsin to do some hunting on private property. They would board at the home of the woman there and the house was a typical summer-type frame cottage with a closed-in front porch and a screened porch in the back. When they arrived, she was playing a piano on the front porch. After sleeping the night they arose early and went to tiptoe out as quietly as they could so as not to wake her. They exited out the rear screened porch and were shocked to see the piano THERE instead of on the front porch. He said he remembers they were all creeped out.

After coming home from the airport I went in the bathroom and I heard the hissing. It was my air freshener going off every 9 min. She was releaved to hear she hadn't had compamy in the bathroom.
    LMBO....thanks for the great laugh!

    Omy, another story that has me crying!

    I think I'm crying a lot from these stories because my sister drowned in a car accident, we was told she was trying to get out but couldnt. So I know she suffered, and my heart breaks because of this, she passaway March 2009, she was my only sibling, we didn't get along to well she was kind like my father, very stubborn and right even though she was wrong. However the last time before she passed we both told each other we loved one another...but I so miss her!

    Thanks to all who have shared there story's I've read everyone of them...

    When I was 37, I had a stroke. I was put on a Morphine drip for the pain in my head and put in the stroke ward with much older men and women (no offence). After another trip to the toilet to be sick yet again (I had a very bad reaction to the morphine) I was on my bed crying and feeling very sorry for myself. As I was lying there I felt a hand rub my leg and there was no-one there. The next day I was moved to a private room. That night I was asleep and was woken up by the nurses rushing into the room because my emergancy buzzer was ringing but I had not pushed it. The following year I had another minor stroke and was put in a high dependancy room but not attached to any machines. After I went to bed, the board behind my bed lit up like a Christmas tree. The nurses could not understand why it had done that. This year on my birthday, I was laying in bed with my husband and waiting for my kids to come and say hello. Someone tapped my knee three times and it was not my husband.
