Do you believe in ghosts?

May 9, 2008

ghosts-book-penguin.JPGFrom a haunted church in Abington, Cambridgeshire, to a spectral white bird spotted in the Devon village of Zeal Monachorum, England’s towns and villages are full of ghost stories.

 Authors Jennifer Westwood and Jacqueline Simpson have written a county-by-county guide to the hundreds of tales that have been repeated down the years.

While some may scoff, the collection contains hundreds of accounts from people convinced they have seen headless horsemen, screaming skulls or supernatural packs of dogs.

Poltergeists, ghostly figures in country churchyards and strange auras in houses are recorded across the country.

Have you seen a ghost? Do you believe in the supernatural? Or do you think it’s all in the imagination?

I have seen things that others have not since the age of 4.
My life’s experiences have been critically self questioned. My conclusion is that I may be mad ( after all we are all a little mad?) or I may have psychic ability( perhaps a bit of both)
I cannot deny what I see although I have tried in vain!
