Are Ghosts Real?
Are Ghosts real? A lot of people don't believe in Ghosts and while I totally respect their opinions and explanions for this I do think they are real and thought I would share my experience with you.
I have always believed in ghosts and since I was a little girl I have been interested in the subject even though I am a total wuss and end up scaring myself when I watch or read things about them.
My mum once told me how when she was a young girl living in my nans house, she woke one night to see a transparent lady standing in her bedroom facing away from her looking out of the window. My mum was scared and just hid under her covers until she finally fell asleep. I always wondered what I would do if the same thing happened to me and in end decided that I would most definatley NOT want to see one as it would scare me far too much.
When I was about 16 years old my dear Nan was losing her fight against cancer and was very ill. I was visiting one day and it was just me, my auntie and my nan in the house, my nan was having a sleep and my auntie and I went out in the garden to hang the washing on the line. My nan was extremly ill and was mostly living in her dining room which was right at the back of the house and joined onto a small, old fashioned conservatory. The door leading to the dining room where she was sleeping was glass with a long net curtain hanging on it.
I was pegging up the washing when I looked up, over to my nans door to see the net curtain slightly pulled across and then back again and caught a glimpse of someone in a grey top or coat as the curtain closed. I thought nothing of it as my uncle was living in the house at the time and my great aunt was due to visit.
When my auntie and I went back indoors my nan was still fast asleep and there was no one else there, it turned out that my uncle was away working and my great aunt arrived an hour or so after it happened.
My Nan passed away a few days later and a while after that we were up in the attic sorting things out when I saw my grandads old grey jacket neatly sitting on top of a box - he always wore it and as soon as I saw it I remembered that day in the garden when I had looked up and seen someone in grey standing in my nans room. My Grandad had passed away when I was 10 years old and he used to sleep in the dining room where my nan was when she was ill as he had a plastic leg and must have found it hard to get up and down the stairs.
I think it was him I saw that day and I think he knew I would be scared if I saw him properly. Im sure some that read this will think im silly but I believe it and when I told other family members they had no explanation for what else it could have been, my nan certainly could not have got up herself and she was wearing a blue dressing gown anyway!
For anyone that enjoys a bit of paranormal activity I recently watched a programme called 'ghosts of the underground' which was looking into various spooky goings on at London tube stations. Some of the goings on were really creepy and it really spooked me out! take a look on you Tube.
Summary: What would you do if you saw one?
