My opinion on this topic is always changing.

But right now I like to think that ghosts are sorta like pockets/portals of energy from the past/future and we can see each other when one of these anomalies shows up, kinda like a temporary window to the past/future.

Yes, I believe in spirits i believe I've been followed by one for most of my life to be honest. Its very subtle but odd occasions reveal it may be still around, it seems harmless for now.


As for the after life I think either we are reborn or simply destined to wander space and other deminsions in our soul selves for eternity after death 
Haven't quite thought of a reasonable explanation as to why my second thought is valid.
Perhaps an endless cycle for knowledge?

I do for sure! My boyfriends mom passed away this past October. We have her ashes in our apartment and we are constantly hearing disembodied voices. She had a deep scratchy voice and we hear lots of faint growling that isnt our dogs. Our dog also tends to stare at nothing in the room where her ashes are. My boyfriend believes she died as a demon and is haunting us. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I belive spirits live on different plane of existence.

Absolutely. I have seen and experienced too many things to deny it. I also believe in reincarnation. Possibly anyway. I never believed in it until recently. But Iv always kept an open mind. But the more I experience, the more I believe it.

100%. I have seen so many odd occurrences to be able to deny the existence. In my opinion , I find it ignorant of people to assume we are the only ones out there wether it be Ghosts, Aliens, Cryptids, Etc.

i do believe there is spirts/ghost , which may be good or bad i guess it would depend on the situation .some sprits life may have ended in a tragic way and they are stuck here unable to come to terms, i think everyone has seen things or maybe heard things when they are alone, it happens more to the people who have a open mind to "other " things.

Ok so I'm in rehab right now and its haunted af. I could tell you a bunch of things that have happened but most recently we went into the nursery at night and my friend was recording and asked if anyone was there and when we played it back a voice said yes clear as day. Then when we left I went into the group room and something touched my back and there was no one behind me at all. Before this was a rehab the nursery was a house and a woman and her baby died in there and they haunt the place (two of my friends actually saw her) and after that they added buildings and it was a mental health facility where a guy killed himself. And he's evil af. But yeah it's crazy and I for sure believe in the afterlife and spirits

I have no idea what's beyond this life but I've seen far too much strangeness to not believe in something beyond.

For ghosts, to me it's 50/50. I've seen things that I can't explain but was it a ghost, or something else?? 


As for the afterlife, I think once you die that's just it. Nothing happens. You literally just cease to exist anymore.

Pretty much every house I've lived in has been super haunted , and an ex and I once got physically attacked by a ghost in the woods where a few civil war battled were fought. He had scratches on his back from it. I don't like dealing with ghosts lol

I believe in ghosts and spirits as well as reincarnation. I know there's no definite proof for it or anything like that and that there are other possible explanations for my own personal experiences, but it brings me a bit of comfort to believe it.

yes!!! i've definitely had my own share of strange experiences: the most recent was a couple candles actually lighting themselves after i had just blown them out like 5 mins before. i was a little creeped out once i realized what happened.

I believe in spirits I have seen a lot of weird shit that proves there is an afterlife. My most recent encounters would be once a month my bed room light will randomly turn on by itself after I have turned it off. It started happening after a close friend of mine passed. The first time it happened it was shortly after he passed and i could smell his cigarettes smoke soon after. Nobody here smokes. 


After my mom died I have found pennies in the weirdest spots. It makes sense because when my mom was alive there was a penny jar that she kept full of pennies. So yeah i believe in a after life I believe our love ones check in on us every so often.

Absolutely. I’ve had many wild experiences. 

I can remember seeing and hearing things, as well as waking up levitating as a kid (as young as 5). The best way I can describe the worst experience I have ever had (19 y/o) was that it was a demon and ever since then, I wake up with handprints, can hear singing and talking (in many different tones and voices) and see orbs/shadow people fairly frequently. 
My daughter (3 y/o) has started telling me about the monster in the corner of my room. She says it looks like a black cloud and that it likes to “play” on my ceiling. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that, but I believe her.

Having experienced paranormal occurrences in my life I'd say yes! So much has happened to me that it would take ages to list it all.

While non of it is like super over dramatic spooky like what you see off those TV shows I do think that something exists beyond the realms of the 3rd Realm. (3rd realm is what I call our 3D existence/world).

A small village in which I lived in was at least a 1000 or so years old so alot of crazy stuff happened there!

I do suspect witches/Satanists opened up some portals there a very long time ago and they are still open to this day and it affects the whole area! Who knows these portals may have increased in size and consumed the whole area!

i don't really know if i believe in an afterlife, and i don't really know if it's even possible to know until it happens. however, i do somewhat believe that ghosts exist, due to things i've seen before. i think it's possible for ghosts to exist, and maybe even some sort of afterlife.

I'm open-minded about it. I sure hope and after my mom passed last year we had a lot of strange occurrences happening. It's not nearly as much these days now.

I personally believe in ghosts and the paranormal because of personal experience. There is too much that has happened that I can’t explain from visions and dreams that came true to poltergeist activity in a few places I have lived in. Stuffed animals moving on their own. Out of body experience ms. Feeling like I have a attachment and then someone that doesn’t know that telling me there is a negative entity attached to me. There is definitely something whether is ghosts, spirits or something else completely unexplainable there is definitely something.

I love the paranormal. As a kid I kinda grew up with it because my grandpa was the owner of a famous haunted and historical house. I would go over there all the time with my family, and my cousins and I would explore and do our own ghost hunting. We had alot of fun at that place but unfortunately it has now been sold. Im glad I can still see the footage of it on youtube to relive the memories. 


If anyone wants to learn more heres a video about it I really enjoy

yeah. I think ghosts/spirits are those who died at the wrong time and they are stuck between the human dimension and the spirit dimension. I think when we die we go to a different dimension where there are gods, faires, goblins, mythical creatures etc.

I believe in ghosts but I think its just difficult to explain like I don't want to say its an afterlife because I do believe we only have one life but I also believe that our energy somehow transcends this body and becomes part of a higher dimension but at the same time that energy was always part of this higher dimension and our experience here in this life is merely a chance for the energy to explore a state of matter. I believe that they can psychically communicate with us but that is also really complicated and they can manifest in other ways.

I believe you cant believe in one thing and not another.
i have too many stories relating to ghosts or just odd paranormal things.
I met my guardian angel one time in my entire life. That experience haunts me to this day.
I remember this strange feeling, i remember the thoughts that came into my head, i remember being locked onto something and i had no control over myself. I suddenly saw this light, an aura if you will, it was rather large and it almost looked like a burning sun. Its colors ombred from red to orange to this almost golden yellow to pure white. I stared at it and watched it float around me. shortly after i realized there was a spirit trying to attatch to me, im very empathetic, very emotional, it happens quite often. my guardian angel was trying to save me from whatever was trying to attach to me.

I've seen a number of questionable things. I've ended up at a lot of locations where ghost hunters or ghost adventures filmed. Some of it was by accident and some of it was like - I'm here, might as well go. I was in Kentucky for a work thing and dragged my colleague to the Waverly Hills Sanatorium and felt someone - something touch my arm.

I believe there are ghosts. Ive never really had my own ghostly experience exactly but I know some people who have told me of their experience and I believe them.


I did have a dream with my deceased grandpa where we converesed over our concern for my grandma. It was a very supernatural experience even more so because of the location and timing of the dream.

So I guess that leads me to ya I believe in an afterlife. You could say I'm an omnist I suppose. I find that there can be truth found in every religion and all of their percieved afterlifes. And the way I see the afterlife is that it takes what shape you need it to be. Wether that means a sort of heaven or hell, reincarnation, or dispersal of energies and anything in between.

I have my moments where I want to believe since I would love to see people I miss very dearly in the end. But sometimes I start to feel very hopeless about nothing being here when we go.

I have a pretty firm belief that theres a lot out there we cant wrap our minds around. While Im not completely sold on the traditional idea of ghosts, I do believe that there are things out there we cant wholly perceive and explain. Could be temporal stuff, energies, or anything else of that sort. I have a couple minor 'experiences' I should probably write a blog post about when I got more time.

Yes! I've had quite a few paranormal experiences in my life. When I was younger (age 4) I lived in an older house and my mom would wake up to me running through the hallways, when she asked me why I said I was playing with the other kids, she asked me what other kids was I playing with and I responded "The ones who live here." We used to hear kids running upstairs all the time then we found out some kids had died of an illness in the house decades before we moved in. 

The night my dad passed away (I was age 9) my aunt, who had come to tell me that he had passed, saw me sitting on the edge of my bed talking to myself. When I was done talking I laid back in bed and my aunt came into the room and said "Who were you talking to?" And I said "My daddy." My aunt responded by telling me that my dad had passed away and I said "I know, he told me that he had to go and to take care of mom." My aunt was flabbergasted. 
The next time I saw a spirit I happened to be watching a movie in the living room by myself (age 14) and I looked into the hallway and saw a figure I thought was my mom I said something like "Jeez mom you scared me!" The person didn't reply so I jumped up and flipped on a light and the person vanished. 
More recently I was at work and saw the ghost of my coworkers grandfather, wearing the same shirt he was buried in. A bright purple shirt.

I don't believe you can die and be doomed to exist as a ghost for the rest of time... I do believe that souls from the afterlife can cross over to "visit" our world. So essentially!

i personally believe that ghosts/spirits can visit us from beyond the veil and whatnot, but also, i think ghosts will always be real as long as ppl believe in them if that makes sense? like whether or not ghosts are empirically proven to exist or not, if ppl believe in them that makes them real to those people, you know?

the question i will reflect back and ask you, do you believe in an infinite yet finite physical vessel with an evolving soul or spirit that is always changing dying deaths and being rebirthed into the same but new and improved and better? can you believe ghosts as a physical reality?

Spirits yes, an afterlife "eeeehhh".  Since I was young I've seen some weird shit including but not limited to my dead grandmother (she literally came by to say hi), a two headed grey hound that came out of my basement, and possibly either a thunder spirit or the jersey devil.  I'm a little iffy on an afterlife just because I don't really want to live again you feel?
