Ghost Stories by Joyce Lavene



Do you believe in ghosts? Asking this question will make most people relate a ghost story, sometimes from their childhood. They immediately say they DON'T believe in ghosts, not really. It's not like anyone has ever proven that there are ghosts.

But some things don't need to be scientifically proven for people to believe in them. People throw salt over their shoulder when they spill it. Not that they believe it's bad luck exactly, but why take chances? There are hundreds of things that we believe in that haven't been proven - like shamrocks being good luck - and weather prediction. (ouch!)

But can we explain why we have those strange feelings when we walk into a house? Those creepy little sensations like someone is watching us? And what about the photos of ghosts that crop up from time to time? Are those real?

Most people either know someone who has seen a ghost or believe they have seen a ghost. They believe in otherworldly activity. Most people believe they have spoken with their dead loved ones, even if they haven't seen them.

I can't debate who's telling the truth and who isn't. But I've seen ghosts. The first one was my great-grandmother when I was about 5 years old. Was she real? I don't know for sure, but I believe she was.

The paranormal will always interest us, with or without the benefit of scientific approval. Maybe we all want to believe that the people we love are still with us. Maybe we see it as our own kind of immortality.

The question is always - Do YOU believe in ghosts?

I stumbled upon your blog and have to say, "Yes," I believe in ghosts, spirits, another dimension, etc. I also believe in and look for signs to help guide me when needed. My belief is more centered on spirit guides and lost souls. I purposely do not look into demons or dangerous hauntings because, I guess, I really do believe and don't want to get close to that. I would like to follow your blog for awhile as I can't spend time reading past posts right now. I will be back, however.

I may not believe in ghosts, but being from the south I have a few ghost stories. But then again don't we all.
