I am a believer in ghostly appearances. The reason is that I have had the experience of a couple manifestations of people that I knew before them leaving this world.
I am a senior citizen and because of that, I try to keep my mind as active as possible because I don’t want to "lose it" like a lot of seniors do, for lack of not keeping my mind alive by under-using it. To keep my mind occupied I will sit and start thinking about things and even do math problems in my head. When I get bored of this, then I put on paper the problems I more or less stored in my head. Then I try to blank my mind and think about certain people that have passed away.
What I’m going to say on what I did next scared the hell out of me. This was about 2:30 a.m. and I couldn’t sleep. Lying down on my bed I started thinking about my grandmother who had passed away a long time ago. I remembered how she looked and spoke, and how she would chase my grandfather with her broom for doing what he shouldn’t have been doing.
I was so engrossed in my thinking that, whether it was my imagination or not, she was standing there just staring at me. It felt very real. Like I said it scared the hell out of me, because she wasn’t the best looking woman in the world and to me as a kid at the time that I was living with her she seemed like a witch.
Whoever reads this, I would suggest that if you try this start thinking about someone that has passed away (one that will not scare the hell out of you) and see what happens. See if you can tell if it is imaginary or not. I couldn't say for sure either way, but I know what I think it was. Keep in mind though, that the place has to be really quiet with no noise whatsoever, or it will disturb your concentration. If your concentration was really deep you will have some sort of result. You should also be relaxed and have your body is in a comfortable position.
That is my rant of the day.
