I haven't actually seen the ghost/spirit, whatever you want to call it. Yet, I have felt the presence of one. For months in my old apartment I used to experience supernatural occurrences. A vase on top of my refrigerator that was at the far back of the refrigerator, was tossed at the pantry door in front of the fridge and of course glass shattered all over the floor. There was no one there to do it and it flew at the door violently fast.

My husband had bought me a large heart shaped balloon one year for Valentine's Day. It was attached to a speaker that when tapped would play a love song. There were several occasions when the music would start playing on its own without any one being remotely near it. Also, the doors to the closet that the balloon was kept in would randomly open on their own. They were good doors with good locks and door knobs. They weren't loose and there wasn't an a/c vent or anything near them, so air couldn't blow the doors open.

There was one night that I yelled down the hall way for the 'ghost' to leave us alone. When I did that, I heard glass shattering in my bathroom at the other end of the hall way. When I opened the bathroom door I saw that my bathroom mirror was shattered. It was after that, that I contacted my apartment office demanding them to allow us to leave and break our lease without consequences. Since we moved, there have been no more disturbances, no more unexplained happenings.

The very first experience with a spirit I can remember was when I was between 3 and 5, I used to play in the attic with this boy almost everyday, we would sit in front of the only window on the side of the house facing the street and we played jacks or we would roll a ball back and forth to each other and just chat away. This went on for months and months.

The problem is that my Mom later told me I couldn't be in the attic as I had never been in it because her bed blocked the door and there was no way I could move it. But even to this day I can describe that attic perfectly even though it has been more than 30 years since we moved out of the house.

On a side note, my Mom had also seen a spirit in the house, it was an older man with a baseball cap and overalls, with dirty work boots on. My mom said at first she thought it was my dad but then realized he was laying in the bed next to her, when she looked back the man was gone so she got up, woke my dad up and when they reached the hallway where the man was standing they stepped in a small pile of dirt. He never appeared to my mom again, but she thinks the boy I played with could possibly be his son or something. Creepy, weird and cool...

When i was younger maybe around 12 or 13 i remember seeing ghosts are different occasions throughout a week, The first time i believe i saw a woman in our car outside just sitting there looking straight ahead. I couldn't get a good look because i was talking to my girlfriend on the phone at the time and was distracted but i remember clearly seeing a woman with short hair who seemed to be grey in color and almost see through. Within the next few days i was outside again and this time i saw a man in the passengers seat which was odd to me considering the woman i saw a few days ago was in the drivers seat, i ignored what i saw but kept it in the back of my mind. The next day or so i would be outside yet again, keep in mind all of these sightings were at night. I had saw a man and woman, the same from before but this time they are both together in the car in their respective seats as if they were going somewhere. This was strange to me because even at age i knew a thing or two about the paranormal and i couldn't see any reason why spirits would be in my car considering it was brand new.

Yes I have seen a ghost or a spirit which is what I think you are really asking. The first time I saw one I was 8 years old and had absolutely no thoughts about ghosts nor was I afraid of the dark (at that time). We had just moved into a new house, it was late at night and I woke up thirsty so went to get water. There was a man standing in front of the refrigerator and I almost ran right into him. I looked up and said hi, although I did wonder who he was and why he was in our house. He looked very real, I said hi and he looked down and smiled at me. Then he did the most amazing thing, he began to slowly rise up through the ceiling.

My brother was apparently still awake so had come out of his room to see why I was up and just stood there on the other side of this ghost. We both just stood fascinated watching this spirit as he rose on up through the ceiling. I remember there being a puff of smoke or fog near the ceiling as his feet vanished.

Next day I asked my dad if ghosts were real. He said he thought so and I told him about our ghost.

My first ghost sighting was when I was 12 years old and staying with my cousins in an old farm house. I remember waking up and looking at the window. There was a shadow of a man wearing overalls and a straw hat looking in at us. Only problem was that we were on the second floor. Apparently, my cousins new this ghost as they often smelled his pipe smoke in the house. He was a previous owner who had passed there.

I saw my first ghost in color when I was in my early 30's. We just moved into another old farm house that was built in the 1850s. As I was unpacking, I saw a woman wearing a long white night gown with lace up to her neck. She had long blond hair. I only saw her side view and I remember her nose as being long and kind of pointed. I said hi to her and she just walked through the wall into the other room. A couple years later, my land lady (who lived in upstairs level) called and asked me to keep my ghosts down stairs. This same lady was seen by our landlord in his bedroom. :o)

Yes , I was 5 years old, sitting in our family room, looking out the sliding glass door, which faces our backyard, and I saw a bald man standing in our pool, he was very still, facing me. I screamed, and my mom came running out, I told her there is a man in the pool.She looked around outside but saw nothing, no wet feet prints either..Years passed bye, until one day when she had an old photo album out, I asked to look at it, as I flipped through the pages, I see that man, I asked her who he was, and she said:" that is my dear sweet dad who died before you were born.

Yes, I have seen ghosts. Every now and then I have a ghost of children walk through my home, thinking it is one of my children and when I get up to see what they need. There is no one there. There has been a few times when it was some kind of animal. Some times they creep me out.

I saw the spirit of my grandfather shortly after he passed away. I also saw the spirit of my grandmother after she passed away.

No, I haven't. But if I saw one, I would hardly be surprised.
