    Just until up to five years ago, I didn't believe in ghost. Simply because I never experienced or saw anything with my own eyes. Here are three brief stories about my encounters.

    1. I was working for a local remodeling company, and we were remodeling this old church. The church has been closed for nearly 20 years. One night I was working by myself and I went out side to smoke a cig. One of the other workers were walking by to meet the boss also, the worker started the job with us but refused tot continue for an unknown reason. He asked if the boss was here yet and I said no not yet. He was staring up at the church with fear, he started to walk away and said to me to let the boss know that he stopped by. I thought it was weird that he wouldn't wait for his pay, but the way he was looking up at that church was unsettling. I finished my cig and went back in the church to finish up for the night.
    I went to the basement where we would have food and drinks in a fridge and to sit and take a break. As I was pouring ice tea in my glass I heard this strange gargling sound coming from another room in the basement. It sounded like someone was gargling water or choking, so I went to the room and turned on the light. It was completely empty, not one thing in the room. That gave the chills, I shut the light off and brushed it off as it must of been a pipe or something as the church is over 100 years old. I finished my ice tea and went back up to the first floor.
    I was putting debris in garbage bags and all of a sudden I heard the church bell. The church bell hasn't been connected for years as I know for a fact because we had to replace the wiring. The bell rang no more then 4 times, I thought ok now this is weird. I was finishing up and went to go get my things in the basement and as soon as I got to the top of the steps, I heard a dog bark twice, I grabbed a hammer and went down to investigate. Nothing was down there. I grabbed my things and left the church and my boss was waiting outside,
    I didn't mention anything that happened. I just thought it was weird that I was the only one that would work at night. I walked home as I just moved up the street from the church, and when I got home my mom asked how my day was. I told her we started working on the church right down the street, and before I could tell them about the weird things that happened that night, my sister tells me, That church is where we would have girl scout meetings, then she goes to tell me that there was a gas leak along time ago, and that several people has died including a dog. I looked at her like are you serious? Well needless to say no work would be done at that church during evening or night time hours.

    2. Me my Father, Mother, Brother and Sister decided to move because my father found a bigger house for a great deal. Before we could move into the new home a few things had to be done. So we would stay at my fathers mothers house or my mothers sisters house. One night I was staying at my grandmothers. The house was separated into two apartments. My grandmother(91) lived on the second floor and her sister(93) lived on the first floor. In the house it was only me, my grandmother, and her sister. I was seeping in my grandmothers guest room, I woke up saying something as like I was responding the voices I heard soon as I woke. The voices stopped seconds after I opened my eyes. The ceiling fan that I had on, was slowing down to a complete stop like someone just turned the switch off. I looked at the clock and it was 3am. My grandmother was in her room snoring away, and I looked around the house and no one else was there. So someone or something was having a conversation and turned off the ceiling fan. The next morning my grandmothers sister showed me an article in the paper, It was about this house. A mob bosses son apparently committed suicide in the basement of the house my grandmother was living in. So I thought that was pretty weird

    3. Me my girlfriend, her sister, and her sisters boyfriend got into ghost hunting for awhile and their was this local legend about a local graveyard. So the four of us went to investigate. We came upon this grave marker that was all by itself in an empty spot of the cemetery, not even a tree was close to it. All we could make out was the date of death and only 186_ was visible. All four of us were standing there looking down at the marker, the wind started stirring and all I heard was a knock, knock, knock in the ground like it was coming from the casket. I looked up at my girlfriends sisters boyfriend and we gave each other a look like wtf? Before we could see what our girlfriends thought the were sprinting the exit.

    I never believed in ghost up until these three occurrences happened to me. I think there is something but I never seen an actual ghost or anything move or anything like that.

    Lol. When I woke up it sounded like 2 men were having a conversation and once they heard me they stopped. It was weird and it could of been in my dream, but I had this weird feeling overwhelm me. The ceiling fan though? I turned it on before I laid down to sleep. When I woke up to those voices, I looked up at the fan and it was slowing down like someone just turned it off and the switch was on the off position. Someone had to just seconds before flip the switch off, my grandmother was snoring and the entrance door to outside was locked and the door to the stairway that connects the floors was also locked and can only be locked from the inside, and it was just me and my grandmother on that floor. The power didn't go off and there no fuses blew. Everything was normal. I also thought it was weird that, as soon it was daylight and everyone woke up, my great aunt showed me the article about a mob bosses son had committed suicide, shot himself in the head, in the basement of that house. It was a weird experience. My father also told me he would feel like some other presence was there. That house just gave you a very eerie feeling when you were by yourself. I have been in houses by myself before and never felt any way like the way I felt in that house.

    I worked for a graduate school of psychology, located in a converted hospital.

    1) I'm sure I saw a man walk "through" our lunch table from another era. He was wearing a white shirt and pencil thin black tie.

    2) Saw a smallish human form image sitting in the corner of a coworkers office and when I told her, saying "it" was wearing olive green, she explained that her uncle in Argentina had just passed away early that morning and he always wore an olive green suit. This coworker was also with me when I saw the man walk through our lunch table and she said she saw him too.

    3) I swear where my office was located must have been the former morgue since it was in the back of the building and always extremely cold no matter what time of year. I would occasionally hear footsteps but that would be impossible since our floors were carpeted.

    Hello, as you I did not believe in ghosts.
    But I've seen an apparition and that mark for life, I know I saw a ghost, I created a thread about it like you at the forum.

    ghost woman (1850-1920) in Ottawa Courtyard

    I watch the show Ghost Hunter in France and they talked about intelligent manifestation (ghost that can touch) and also the fact that dead people may have remained attached to objects that would be residues of the past time which would mean that because of the objects one could relive a moment of the past.
    I explain myself the best that I can
