Yes ShawJ,
i share the same view!
it's fascinating, yet depressing if you think about it!

The real truth is that spirits have been coming back to earth ever since the first person died and his spirit moved over to the spirit world.

And there is at least one good reason for this... to let us know they are alive and not dead and buried six feet under. Once our own soul's perceptions are developed to a certain degree, we will understand this. And, of course, once we experience death ourselves, hopefully, we'll have a smooth transition to our new life.

What do ghosts do all day?



Kick back, take a nap, maybe play a little cards, they wait for night before they do the spooky stuff.

I imagine that ghosts can be far more productive doing nothing than some of the live ones who do even less.

HI, I experienced 2 clear loud knocks at my bedroom door last night where me and my daughter sleep(noone else lives here).
Also around the same time at my mothers house, she leaves the key in the front door and it had been half pushed out of the key hole, like some1 was tryin to enter her house.
I told my sister today and over the past week shes had a football roll across her lounge(noone near the ball and it'd been sat there ages without moving).

also shes felt some1 touching her leg.
Does this mean anything??
I filmed my daughter dancing the other day and it could just be poor lighting etc and natural but there was orb like lights going everywhere, but as i say im not to sure about that.

help, please?
i dont know how to post my own thread, sorry

nobody can help you figure out exactly what was happening....just speculations....
the knocking sound on the door could be wood expanding due to heat and coldness. it happens to our house (roof etc.) all the time. couple of knocks as the wood 'adjusts'. you may have heard it coming from the direction of the door and your mind associated that to "knocking".

leaving the key in the front door.....she may have pulled it out partially as she was opening the door without realizing. she then left it in there and the next day just "assumed" that the key was all the way in when it was closed....this has happend to me before as well.
football roll? not sure...maybe a small earth quick or other vibration from a train going by or something like that.
touching of legs? i don't know but there are a lot of nerves in the leg area that may act funny and giving unusual sensations. the brain then may interprit that as "touching".
the orbs in the video most definitely a lighting issue.

the more one gets in the mindset that "there's something out there", the more "encounters" or "brain playing tricks" will be experienced/percieved.

the key things happened twice more at my mums, now the opening of wardrobe doors and a bedroom door, wide open. why doors...

Some ghosts are active in the daytime. I've experienced this multiple time at multiple places.
