    from hell. One night he woke me up and said they're here and pointed in the direction of the door. When I looked I saw five shadows standing about three feet from us. They were shadows but they were solid. I couldn't see through them. I ducked under the covers. Daybreak...

    While they can be beneficial,

    negative, or neutral, ghosts—the spirits of dead people—are often tragic. Ghosts often haunt a location or someone living, and they sometimes appear as a warning. But mostly ghosts are harmless beings that would no more hurt a human than a teddy bear could hurt a fly. Ghosts...

    A Summary and The Massive Black Dog

    While I do believe in 'spirits' of sorts, I still feel rather silly confessing my stories on this subject.  I come from a long line of American Indians.  My great grandmother used to read tea leaves and such.  She was somewhat of a 'seer' so to speak.  Ever...

    but I can definitely feel them. I've had two encounters with supernatural powers. First when I was a young lad, about 10-12 years old. I can't remember exactly how old. But I was at my Aunt's house and my Uncle had built a garage in his back yard, they had a decent amount of...

    In Japan ghosts are also in part the Kami,

    aspects of the divine. People are haunted by these ghosts. I believe they influence us. I don't fear them, but I do wonder at their influence over me. There is much to life that the modern age thinks quaint, but can't explain.

    A Few Reasons to Believe In Ghosts.

    They aren't necessarily just the apparitions

    that appear in the night. After my sister died, the ghost of her was everywhere: in the scent of my mother's favorite quilt she used to wrap herself up, in the way her makeup brushes sat untouched in her bathroom for a few weeks, the sound of her voice on the last voicemail she...
