  • You display good traits, though few.

Those ghost hunting tv shows are ridiculous.

Your patience grows but your skin is thin
The pager signals they're coming in
Through the hole in the wall
You left a hole in the wall

Interesting things here, loving the sceptics as always. My opinion is that sightings have gone up because people actually believe it more these days, for exampe my grand parents generation and even more religious generations before that shonned people who thought they saw ghosts etc but now days people can talk about it on forums like this and thankfully dont get laughed at. Another opinion of mine is that people are more in tune with their spiritual side then they were in previous generations again perhaps due to the decline in following stright religion. You could also argue that there has been more sightings because more people have died? Britain is a pretty spooky place because we have had people live here for centries and centries

I have to say it's due to TV. that can be due to the hype" of more people looking? or as stated, more people setting at home thinking of ghosties...but that's why I think there are more reports of ghost sightings

Well, depending on one's point of view.

Either A) Spirits are acting up or B ) People are watching too many ghost movies.

I've always been on the fence about these kinds of things myself.

edit: Haha, oops.

Most will be lies, hallucinations or shadows, lights, dust, etc.
Some will be real, but most won't be.
When i see something, i check to make sure it's definitely not 1 of the above.
Sometimes, i just dismiss orbs, too likely that it's just nothing...
My house is haunted, when it wants to be.
Some evil things have happened, but good too  :yes:
There were a few times i've played music and they haven't been fans  :no:
Slamming doors and stomping around. Growling at me, until i growl back!  :lol:
Many stories in this old house...
Previous owner dare not come near the house. What a wimp :P

  • I am minuspeptic, frasmotic, even compunctuous to have caused you such pericabobulations.

The great thing about living in Britain (other than the fact we no longer have a Labour government) is that it is often described as the most haunted country on Earth.  Ghosties and ghoulies seem to be more deeply ingrained in British psyche than in any other nation.

By the way, that photo of what is supposed to be a ghost of a Civil War cavalier looks impressive.

Do you consider this real evidence?
There's a spot in the woods which I've hiked for almost 20 years and have consistently felt a strong vibe.
It is on a random section of trail amidst 5 miles of trails in a 200+ acre forest.
One day I examined a particular tree in this section of woods and found someone had placed a small clay amulet on the back of the tree.

Now isn't this odd - a random tree in the middle of the woods and 2 people being pulled to it?

I once saw what seems to be a shadow person at this tree. I had never heard of a shadow person, but after finding the amulet I started doing a lot of research and this thing - which was there for about 15 seconds - was very real.


Your post made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I'm going to research shadow ppl now. :unsure2:

Many months later and Iím finally getting back here to give an update.

So much has happened, and things are still happening almost daily.

Iíve learned a lot about this woods Ė it has been a ceremonial place for millennia, used by indigenous people for rituals, tributes and power.  Iíve found more things, left for me in out-of-the-way places by someone, but I still do not know who they are or what their agenda is.  Iíve been introduced to the practice of Shamanism via connections on the web and have had good success in doing what they call Ďtravellingí.

Lemme tell ya, thereís a lot more confirmation in this stuff than youíd ever find in a church, or temple or any other organized religionís political structure.

Every tree, rock, bug and bush on this planet has a power to it, and itís just screaming for attention.  
All you have to do is listen.

Iíll try to write about some of the things Iíve seen in dreams, and then found the following day in these woods.

Ghost Hunters, Ghost Lab, Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures are all hype that may increase mass hysteria into everyone thinking they're seeing ghosts, but they're commercialized versions.  I would love to see Zak, Grant, Ryan etc come in contact with a real spirit and see who their machismo would be.
