I have to admit I am a skeptic. I used to absolutely LOVE spirits and ghosts and the like, but as I grew up and never experienced anything outright supernatural(ghosts moving stuff, etc.) I became jaded.
Now this is not to say I haven't experienced anything. I have experienced my friend visiting me after his death. It wasn't visual just a dream and then waking to an overwhelming feeling of him being near. It was pretty amazing and frightening. I think frightening just for the fact that I had never felt/experienced anything like that, so my body didn't know how to react(fight or flight response).
I definitely believe in spirits/angels(good and bad), but I have an extremely difficult time believing in anything "ghost" like. In that I mean a spirit that is moving stuff or making noise. I believe they can influence you and you can feel their presence, but that's it.
I would love to hear other views on the matter. This is in no way saying they don't exist, nor is it saying anyone is wrong to believe otherwise. It's just to point out my view and how it came about.
I am going on vacation for the next 3 days, so I hope to come back and see a bunch of replies to this thread!
