Has any one seen ghost before

I have seen one and felt the presence of another.

The one I saw I was on the T (that's what we in Boston call our subway) going home from school. I was in the last car of the train, and both my car and the car in front of it were completely empty. I was sitting right next to the window that separates one car from the next when I looked to my right, into the car in front of me, and saw a very fat, bald man in a business suit with a briefcase at his feet. Thinking nothing of it, I looked away, and then I remembered that the car had been empty just a second before, so I did a double take and the man was gone.

When I felt a ghost's presence it was my grandfather's. He had died the day before and my parents and I had flown down to Georgia for his funeral. The night we arrived in Georgia I was reluctant to sleep in the room that I would normally stay in when we'd visit because, up until my grandpa got pneumonia and went into the hospital, where he died, he had stayed in that room and there were still traces of him in it, such as his plastic urinal and his cane. Part of me was afraid that, despite the fact that he died in the hospital, he would come back to haunt the room. So I traded rooms with my parents but I was still creeped out so I slept with the closet light on. In the middle of the night I awoke suddenly and a second later I felt the mattress shift, in the exact same way it would as if somebody had been sitting on the edge of it and stood up. Oddly though I was not afraid. I felt an odd sense of peace and realized that it was my grandpa coming to comfort me.

The house I grew up in just outside of London had a haunting, although we never figured out whether or not it was a poltergeist, or a traditional location based haunting.

It started when I was about 5 with small inconspicuous happenings, like the lights coming on and off and doors or windows opening on their own accord. Things escalated with a full blown apparition seen by my brother in law, how said it seemed so real he actually bought an extra ice cream for the small blond boy he had seen laughing at him on the stairs as he headed out to the delivery van.

Things turned violent towards my father and brother, with broken crockery thrown at or around them, and locking them into rooms for hours on end. My mother said she could feel the pressure building in her head and ears just before something happened, like the time she founds the word "Daddy" scratched deeply into the wood of her wardrobe. I still remember the scream.

After speaking with the neighbors, they informed us that there had been a death associated with the property just before we moved in of a small blond boy, about 10 years old who bore a striking resemblance to me. His father was dying of cancer in hospital at the time the word was found by my mother in her wardrobe.

Wow, lots of typing for my 50th answer here on Mybestanswer ...

I know people who claim they have seen ghosts, and a few are credible people. One person I know claims that she saw and communicated with the ghost; another says she felt its presence. Then, there's another I'm not so sure about--her tales of civil war soldiers sound very much like those TV shows about the haunting of old southern boarding houses.. She has also been treated for mental disorders...hmmm.

If there are ghosts, the paranormal experts tell us they are not a danger; they come in peace, usually to communicate some unfinished business. It is the poltergeists that are the ones to fear--they cause harm and destruction. So, the good news is that if I encounter a ghost, I will not be afraid; in fact; I'll be very curious, and no doubt find the spectacle very interesting.

I saw my grandmother after she died when I was 17 years old. It was in Ireland where she lived as we visited her home for a wake. On the day her body was taken away in her coffin, I slept in the house that night with my family. Just as I got into bed, my grandmother appeared to me. She was dressed in white and glowed brightly. She said to me "Don't be afraid" but I freaked out and screamed and then she disappeared. I can still remember it today and it's been 30 years since she died. They say if you can remember seeing a ghost many years later, then you have really seen that person as a ghost. I wish I hadn't gotten so scared, because now I believe she would have probably lingered a bit longer to speak to me.

Even though I haven' t seen one, I have experienced one in my presence. It was in the middle of night and I was lightly asleep. I felt my blankets pulled from me in a very strong, swift motion. I was scared. I jumped up and turned on the light. I searched my tiny house frantically and quickly, even though I could tell right away I wouldn't find anything.

It was shortly after that I had discovered that my mother died at her own hands, in a different area of the world entirely.

Yes, I have and it's happened several times. And also when I dream. It's not a wild crazy thing, some people even have trouble believing it. We are spirits in bodies...the body is not permanent. Our spirit leaves the body at death. So, why anyone has trouble with that I can't understand but many people do.
It's natural to see spirits. It's natural for them to exist.

When I was about 4/5 i was sitting in the bath and saw my grandad ( who died before i was born ) standing at the end of the hallway I could only identify him from a photo in my nans house.

I have also seen a large and very dark figure in the corner of my bedroom when i was about 15, that one scared the hell out of me.

Has anyone seen ghosts before? Certainly people have seen them on film, on television or on the stage. However, the evidence thus far indicates that, in reality, ghosts are merely figments of the imagination, which precludes anyone ever genuinely seeing one in person. So the short answer is "no."

I saw a ghost in the backyard sitting on a low retaining wall. He looked like Colonel Sanders (the KFC guy). I wasn't frightened and then he disappeared.

Thanks for asking your question.
