C'mon Mr Spock , you have never encountered a ghost? I thought there were many in South Americas , I don't know why I thought that, but aren't there!?
LOL, good point! I think you're right!

What I don't have is a ghost story as in an involuntary apparition of sorts.

However, I grew up in a spiritualist Argentinian religion (literally grew up since my grandpa was among the founders). And at my church we have several "practices" that involve "trans-communication" for lack of a better word. So I have plenty of stories involving "them" so to speak. But we don't think of that as ghost stories in the creepy sense. All of that is actually pretty normal (for us)

Having said that, several of my family members and friends here had have some sort of creepy apparition, more than once usually, but not me. Maybe ghosts are scared of me :))


Now, one thing I remember, which is not a ghost story but comes close, is the following:

In my early twenties, my friends and I decided to play a "fortune telling game" with cards. We just classified all cards to mean Yes or No (I don't recall how), then started asking questions. And we started with "calibrating" questions like "are we in a boat", "is his name X", etc... Soon we started to get very nervous when we noticed that the answers to all the check questions came out exactly right, over and over. We started with the real questions, and soon we got really, really scared. I still very vividly remember when one of us asked if he was going to die in a year, and I just took the cards and run out to make sure we don't ever get an answer. He's alive.. we're all are. But still, I never got so scared in my life 8-x

And lol, thanks for explaining but I meant i was kidding about Limerence from beyond the grave, but wouldn't that be the ultimate horror. LO would be like ,'why won't this person leave me alone even after dying!! '
LOL, no kidding.

I think I have someone I very much like to haunt when I die: there was a primary school reunion a few years ago. Then this (now) woman right after saying hi told me if I remember how I use to stalk her in school. As in, you were soo annoying! I remember really likening her (my first LO I guess), but not stalking her. OK, I know she is probably right, but still, she saying that really bothered me... I'll show her what stalking really is :ar!

MrSpock, maybe ghosts think you can't communicate. Maybe they only communicate with people they think will pay attention or can help them or whatnot.

Woah!! They are all scary! How did you not lose your shit with the TV thing and the hair and the creaking floor board.
I get freaked out if there's a random sound that could be made by a mouse in an extremely quiet room. 8-x
I would personally NEVER summon someone from beyond. And I remember you told me you drove on a street near your grandparents house where there was a high speed accident and motorists would report seeing a speeding car!

Also that last paragraph made me lol. Thx for the laugh =))
I knew it was probably her, I just couldn't help her move on or whatever. That's the case with all spirits, they're just people. I suppose some are evil, and some are really good, and everything in between, but deceased people are just people. Your loved ones actually still look out for you, or so it seems.

There have been many accidents on that road. At any given time you can see several crosses along the road where people are still commemorated. Back then, we didn't know all these people were saying it was haunted. I laughed years later telling Grandma L what I was reading about it. She didn't really say anything.

My uncle actually flipped a big rig on that road driving drunk and barely got a scrape so who knows.

IDK, never seen that. Besides IDK, I never dealt with much of that. My visitation dreams for example are so real, and apparently deathbed visitations are a common thing, but like MrSpock said about telekinesis, I guess we don't know if our own brains are behind so much of what we experience. It would be interesting, but maybe nobody knows for sure about anything.

You gotta watch the movie .
Speaking of death bed visitations, my close friend told me her grandma's story, when grandma was young, her friend was very ill, and she was going to die( but grandma didn't know that) and she was very close to Grandma... there was no communication that time and maybe they didn't have phones there. So news of death reached in a while.
Grandma said she actually saw her friend, walking towards her house one day, she saw her coming from upstairs window, and when she came down to receive her , no one was there, she found it very strange, and went and looked about for her. After some time Grandma learnt that her friend had died a few days back. My friend says her grandma swears she saw her friend walking towards her house, and she remembers cos she felt very surprised , as she knew her friend was very sick.
I believe this story, so I guess you're right about the communication with loved ones.

I just remembered some more. I might've talked about this before but when my cat Lexie was put down, afterward going out to my car, I heard the sound of the little gate on the pet carrier jiggle like a cat jumped into it (the vet had taken it apart). Driving home, I felt like someone or something was giving me a huge bear hug (possibly Aunt Kat who loved animals).

Every once in awhile I can hear what sounds like a cat jumping up on my bed and every once in awhile, Puddy looks like she's watching something running around the room.

At the Titanic exhibit twelve years ago, I was holding this giant brush and looking at it, when I felt a noticeable brush of cool air on my wrist. I remember thinking nothing of it and just looking around for an air vent, which there wasn't one. I kind of just put the brush back down and didn't touch anything else.

One night after I first moved out here, I started seeing the silhouette of a body appearing in the darkness driving downtown and it freaked me out because I thought someone was going to run in front of my car but when I looked again, nobody was there. A little later, my phone/speaker started acting up like someone was trying to talk over it. It went on for awhile and then inexplicably stopped.

Another night, I was driving and inexplicably started smelling cologne really heavy in my car. There was nobody in front of me, it was the middle of the night, so that was strange.

At the farm my stepdad and his second wife lived for awhile in Nebraska, us kids were all behind this shed which was low enough for us to climb on the roof and when I was waiting for my turn, I saw in my mind's eye an American Indian woman holding a baby. I can't explain features and stuff very well but I could clearly see her in my mind's eye and where she was standing even though nobody was there. Weird...
