Do you believe in ghosts? Have you ever encountered one?
I, like a lot of folks, read this and thought of Burt Lahr as the Cowardly Lion saying "I do believe in spooks!"
Any way, yes, I believe in ghosts. And yes, I've encountered a few in my time.
I encounter ghost animals more often than humans, but that's probably because I've been in places where more animals have died than humans.
I've also functioned as a a medium and a clairvoyant for seances, but channeling is not something I've ever particularly enjoyed or had a desire to do on a regular basis.
