If I may throw my two cents into the pot...
I've heard that if the house is over 100 years old, or had some tragic event happen in it, that the odds of a ghost(s) are higher. Or, if the land
itself has a history...
I've heard of objects, dolls, pictures, that have been 'infused,' so to speak, with an individual's energies that it can project sounds years
after the person and object have separated (usually due to fatal illness).
I've heard that some events re-occur if the specific conditions under which the original event happened, happen again. (Not quite sure how much stock
to put in this, but it's an interesting theory.)
I've heard some people are sensitive, and/or spirits gravitate towards certain people because of their energies/vibrations, or because of past
relations (family members, etc.).
Overall, I'm never too sure how to properly decide whether or not someone is there or not. I've had stuff moved, heard unexplainable noises, had
someone 'sit' on my blankets while I was lying in bed... then get up (blankets rose) as soon as I asked, "Who's there?", had my bed move (one
moment I banged my right elbow into the wall, the next there was no wall for more than an arm's length...), heard voices, seen shadows, sworn someone
walked into a room only to find it empty...
Sometimes I'd love to know one way or another, and most of the time I'm content to live and let be. They can take or move my stuff all they want, so
long as they put it back (and most of the time they have). Unless, of course, I move stuff in my sleep..
I will deny no possibility, since everything is possible. (The only true question is probable; but with our limited human brains, and reliance on
empirical science, we may never know for sure.)
