Have you ever seen or spoken to a ghost? Would you be willing to visit a "haunted" location?

Have you ever seen or spoken to a ghost? Would you be willing to visit a "haunted" location?

I'm a non-believer in ghosts, personally, but I'm open-minded. I've never seen one, experienced that spooky cold chill, etc. Never once and I love wandering in old cemeteries, even at night. Doesn't spook me in the slightest.

I'd love to hear stories anyone may have about otherwise unexplainable ghost-visitation events. Anyone willing to share such an experience? Can you change my mind? :::-)::

RE: Have you ever seen or spoken to a ghost? Would you be willing to visit a "haunted" location?

I have not seen or spoken to a ghost, but I believe that I have heard one. My grandparents slept in the same bedroom, but in separate beds. Immediately after my grandmother died, my sister, brother, and I decided to take turns sleeping in her bed in order to keep our grandfather company in his deep grief. On the night of my turn, I lay in bed listening to my grandfather's snoring. After a time I began to hear footsteps coming up the stairs toward the bedroom. These were not ordinary footsteps, but very slow and labored stopping at each step before continuing....exactly like the footsteps of my grandmother. I was about 14 years old at the time, and I was petrified. I also became paralyzed with fear and could not move. When the footsteps reached the top of the stairs, I closed my eyes and could not look. Then all was quiet, eventually I fell asleep. I later came to find out that my younger sister and brother had the same experience on their night to stay.

So, yes I believe in ghosts. There are too many things in this world that science can't explain. And yes, I would be willing to visit a haunted location.

I have not seen or spoken with spirits or ghosts, but I would be open to it. I would love to visit a "haunted" place. Not because I believe in them, but because there could be something to it, and I think the experience would be fun!

My sister, my daughter and I "swear" we saw a "light form" in a cemetery in St. Augustine, FL., during a "haunted" walking tour in mid August, roughly 96 degrees, at around 10 o'clock in the evening, but our husbands insist it was a combination of heat and dehydration.

No, I've never seen or spoken to a ghost. Since I don't believe in things being haunted, it would not bother me to visit one.

I have never seen or spoken to a ghost but had a very strange experience that has left me open to the idea that they really may exist.

Spirits exist in this world. I have never 'seen' one; however, I have felt their presence and have heard sounds such as laughter, items being dropped, life going on. I am never frightened...there are many things in this world we do not understand.

No ghostly experience at all. Haunted houses to me are for entertainment purposes.

Many years ago when a friend and I took a driving trip through the Deep South (USA) and wandered around the grounds of some former Southern plantations, I had a very eerie feeling of souls being there. It's a feeling I've had at ruins in Chichen Itza (Mayan ruins in Mexico) and an overwhelming sensation walking around the grounds of a former Nazi death camp. To me, those were haunted locations. But I have personally awakened in the middle of the night from a deep sleep on various occasions and "known" that someone had said goodbye - and that person had passed away.

No, I have not. I have been to several places that were supposedly haunted but saw/heard nothing. I'm game!

I lived in a haunted house and believe me it was not fun. I would have liked to have spoken to thatg spirit because she/he was angry.
