Ghosts or spirits seem to be a common experience for some humans.
Just about everyone has a ghost story to tell.
I can truthfully say I don't ever remember seeing a ghost.
There have been some unexplained things happen in my life that scared me at the time.
I do think maybe there is another dimension that we have not tapped into yet and it might have something to do with dreams.
My dreams are very vivid and I am often visited in dreams by people that have passed on or are about to pass.
I have never heard a child's laughter, had a door to slam, or had things to move around in the house as attributed to a poltergeist.
One time years ago when I owned and ran a small grocery way out in the country, I went to bed one night and was awakened by this horrible, very high pitched, eerie sound coming from my kitchen. It would actually make the hair stand up on the back of your neck it was such a weird noise and I was alone in the house.
The crazy thing about this happening is that I had spent the entire afternoon listening to a bunch of older men that loafed around my big old wood stove tell ghost stories. I laughed from behind the counter in the store and told them how silly they were and that I did not believe in ghosts.
I have to admit some strange and crazy thoughts entered my mind that night as I listened trying to determine what was making that noise. Could it be that since I made fun of those guys a ghost decided to visit me and pay me back for not believing? Could there be someone in the house trying to scare me?
The sound seemed to be getting louder and was occurring about every 10 seconds. I knew I had to check it out or die of fright just listening to it. I got my trusty 38 pistol and Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson and I slowly opened the kitchen door from my bedroom to face off with the ghost of Judy's Market!
To my amazement, I did not see a thing. I stood there for a minute ready to shoot up the whole kitchen if anything moved... Then, I heard it again and it was coming from the freezer. Could a ghost be in the freezer of all places? I slowly opened the door and nothing jumped out at me.
I started taking food out and then I realized what was happening. The fan in back of the freezer was sticking for a few seconds each time it went around! What a relief! I have to admit I was scared to death but glad I found the culprit.
If I had not checked it out or if the noise had stopped before I found out what was causing it, I would have sworn there was a ghost in my house.
Do you believe in ghosts and spirits? Has something unexplained happened to you?
