Do you believe in ghosts? If so, have you ever seen one?
Yes, definitely. I have not "seen" them but I have felt them VERY strongly and also witnessed their actions, i.e. spooked animals, objects moving or falling, etc.
A few haunted places or instances...
- My apartment. I've mentioned it numerous times, no doubt, but there's a haint focused in my office / bathroom / bookshelf area, all of which surround a staircase where a man died. Coincidence?
- St. Jopeph's Oratory in Montreal. Possibly the most unpleasant tourist attraction I've ever visited. (Dachau was less bothersome!) Creepy to the max. I'm not even sure "ghost" really covers it, because to me it felt like more of a hideously powerful, evil earth-spirit.
- Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC, both have similar vibes as far as ghosts go. Certain sidewalks, courtyards, gardens, parks, and of course buildings are teaming with spirits. One particular impression I get is that of hundreds of people, like psychic residue, walking through you as you walk down the sidewalk.
- My friend Eleanor's house / B&B in Inman Park. Caleb told me it was haunted before I even went there, but didn't tell me where. I figured it out pretty quickly. The downstairs guest room and that creepy hallway with the Weimar art prints. Something dark is looking down at you from the ceiling.
I'm not always with Caleb when I experience these things, but often I am, because being with him, I think I tend to be more on the lookout for such things. Sometimes he points things out and seems to feel things I don't but I totally trust his judgment. He's very sensitive to ghosts and can get impressions about mood, character, circumstances, etc. I usually get more of a powerful sense of somebody's / something presence, there watching me, going through me, touching me, etc. The haint at my house has freaked me out on numerous occasions. Not that I'm scared of ghosts per se, as I don't think they can really harm earthly reality, but the feeling is very creepy!
