    I believe in spirits and they do visit you. Mine usually shows up during times of stress.

    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 finished that book a few weeks ago and passed it on to a friend. I enjoyed it. It answered a lot of questions and left me with a few new ones.

    Yes, I have had encounters with spirits and angels both. Neither experience was a bad one, but certainly made me a believer.

    I'm glad I started this thread. One thing that I find particularly interesting is the number of people who feel that they have had contact with pets and other animals.

    One thing I've learned is when you take pictures watch for a white orb to appear in the picture when there was nothing like it when you took the picture.
    Children and pets are very open to appearances. Usually they will stare, dogs sometimes growl at something that is not visible but they are staring. Watch for staring at ceiling corners.

    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.
    THANK YOU for sharing your heartwrenching story! Yes! This happens!! A friend of mine shared a story of when they had to take her son to the ER and while waiting for someone to attend to them. They could hear what was going on in the next "room" as the medical team worked on a patient. After the team left the room, all was quiet and a few minutes after, my friend and her boyfriend heard the patient say..."thank you for saving me". Taking comfort in hearing this, when the nurse returned to help them, my friend commented that it was nice that the patient next door would be fine. The nurse replied queitly..."oh, no, that patient passed away." ! Talk about the goose bumps! Wow!

    I always ask my friend to repeat her experience. We are believers and take comfort in this.

    Yes, there are visions, voices, feelings, etc that we cannot explain. I grew up hearing my mom recall her childhood and the experiences her mother had with the unexplained.

    I had something very similiar happen to me. My grandmother was such a special person . she had a pet name for me and she would call me that if she saw me once a day or ten times a day. sometimes it would get aggravating but how I would love to hear it again! anyway the night after she died i heard her call me that name - kinda freaked me out! mom said she was telling me goodbye! she has been gone almost 20 years and i have never had a dream about her! i have dreamed about my grandfather but never her!

    I love this post - so interesting and glad to know others have seen and felt this. My grandfather used to put Bengay on - the houe would reek of the stuff. Now whenever something is going on in the family some of us will smell it - others can't. the most vivid time i remember smelling it was at my mothers. I had had minor surgery and my husband and I went down to visit them. Mom was going on about how she couldn't believe I came down to see them knowing I had had sugery earlier that day. We both started smelling bengay - my husband did not. but here is the freaking thing. the dog kept looking out on the deck and just started making a strange noise. it was like she saw something. we all knew grandpa was there cuz of the bengay smell (except my husband) and the dog just verified that he was with us if we had any doubts!

    About 30 yrs. ago I had a little neighbor boy, who died from a brain tumor. He was 4 yrs. old, his favorite color was orange, and he and I were very close. He and I would sit and watch all the kids playing. The day he died I spent all day with his family, but when I crawled in bed that night and closed my eyes, this bright circular opening occured, like a round tunnel. At the end of the tunnel was Jeremy, dressed in an orange gown. He smiled at me and the circle closed. I tried for hours to open the circle again but never could.

    A day or so after the funeral, I was with him mom and she gave me some silk orange flowers from the funeral, which I still have today in my china cupboard. So I decided to tell her about the vision I had, thinking she would think I was nuts....but she was thrilled, knowing how close we were, she figured he had to tell someone he is ok now, and he told me. This is as vivid to me today as it was so long ago.

    When I got to this post, the first thing I saw was a white owl I thought, then I read the post. So I saw an owl before I even read the post.

    I have had alot of things I could not explain, whether, ghosts, angels or demons, I don't know. I believe that once you die, your soul goes to Heaven or Hell and once a soul goes to Heaven, it never returns here. I just am afraid that the ghosts that has been seen are really demons that Satan makes look identical like your loved one and the purpose is to win your soul to him. I would love to see my dad that gone on and other loved ones, but I don't want to desturb their souls, I want them to rest in peace.

    But I do love to watch Ghost Hunter shows and so forth. I went to Gettysburg and went on 2 ghost hunts and even used the equipment like K2 meters and voice recorders in an old cilvil war mansion that no one lives in. It was scarry and excitement.

    I have seen and heard and smelled things that I can't explain. I love reading these threads and actuallly have read every word when usually I skip alot of reading, because I am such a busy and active person. Have fun! :shock:

When walking back to the car, I looked at a tree, and there was a white looking owl from sap or something. It startled me, and he didn't see it, but once my pictures were developed, I askef his mom what she saw on the tree. She immediately said a snow owl. Then we went to a burial grounds. I took all kinds of pictures of things, but when I had them developed, there were no pictures of the actual burial grounds. Everything else came out. I believe the spirits did not want me taking pictures, so there was nothing to develop.
    This is the whilte owl post I was referring too. I clicked wrong reply. :wink:

    I saw a picture of a ghost. One of my students took a picture of his friend outside his house, at night, and on the side of him in the back, was a little girl dressed in Victorian style clothing. She was white, like a ghost. My student said no one else was there, physically, except him and his friend.

    I too am a Christian and have never seen one in person. I believe that there are spirits and they will not bother me since the Lord is with me always protecting me. 8-)

    A few years ago we went to San Antonio for a vacation. We stayed in this old hotel that Wynham had bought & restored. It is across from Travis Square & I can't think of the name right now but as soon as I walked into that place it seemed strange. Now I think of it, it was the St. Anthony's Hotel. It still looked the same, had all the old antiques still there in the lobby. We stayed on the 3rd floor & the carpet was not new in the hall. I kept having the feeeling that something was strange about this place. I kept thinking if I saw redrum on the wall it wouldn't have surprised me. Gave me the same scarey feeling the hotel in the movie The Shining gave. Was so glad when we left that place. Found out later that it is on the list of haunted hotels & places in San Antonio & Texas. I knew my gut was trying to tell me something. Just a weird sick feeling about things weren't right.

    Kinda sounds like the Menger Hotel. It's haunted.

    No. Not ghosts, not angels. However, I also do not believe we know everything there is to know about the physical universe.

    I know because I believe in extraterrestrials & Roswell, NM does have a big secret.
