Nice thread, S&F
Ok, as promised I'm jumping in, but it probably won't be the standard take on the subject, lol
As I wrote in many of my posts, I believe that all our experiences are determined by our beliefsystem and that the perception of that experience
changes as we grow and widen our views.
The circle of birth, life and death doesn't end until we get back at the beginning point, the point/place before birth, which isn't within our
space/time dimension. it doesn't matter what your beliefs or religion is, and although it's just 'another theory', this circle can be applied to
I don't know how it works but I guess some souls can become stuck in between two points and as long as they stay within our space/time dimension they
are perceived as ghosts (in opposite to guides, which aren't influenced by space and time)
I also think that many mediums mistaken guides for ghosts (no offense meant to any medium reading this)
As you mentioned, a ghost that doesn't realizes what is happening to him or that simply doesn't want to leave can give you strange experiences. I
also believe that a lot of them simply have a certain message for the ones they leave behind. I had an experience like that when my brother died,
I'll post the link to the thread here because it's a rather long story.
My interest in the paranormal began with ghosts when I was 14 years old. I've played around with Ouija boards often, I even made them as an art form
for a while and hung them up on my walls. By the time I was 20 I knew I had several ghosts in the houses I lived in. A lot of people who came to my
house felt uncomfortable, they thought my house was creepy. I never felt fear once, in fact I felt very exited everytime weird stuff happened. It
would open doors, all at once, or drawers, candles that fell over every time I entered the house, things like that. I think it even played with my dog
(the dog wasn't afraid either) Not that I really knew what to do with it, there was no real communication,so I just talked to it often and let it be.
When I moved again I symbolically took a carton box and asked it to move with me to the new place, I labeled the box "ghost". LOL... well I think it
did move with me, but about a year later It seemed to be gone.
I'll see if I can dig up that picture I told you about, with the ghostly ectoplasm thing on it. When I find it I'll scan it to my computer and post
